Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)

My wife is right, I am anal retentive...., so now I keep a can of WD-40 next to the toilet! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

He's wasn't a terrorist, he was just all fucked-up!

Dear Readers:

Image result for orlando shooterAfter more facts have been revealed about the Orlando shooter, it's time to draw a few educated guesses about what's really going on here!

"What we have here is failure to communicate!" (NO, wait, hold on, that's a quote from the movie 'Cool Hand Luke!')

What I meant to say is that we have a case of "Cognitive Dissonance!" 
In psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, performs an action that is contradictory to one or more beliefs, ideas, or values, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values.
Leon Festinger's theory of cognitive dissonance focuses on how humans strive for internal consistency. An individual who experiences inconsistency (dissonance) tends to become psychologically uncomfortable, and is motivated to try to reduce this dissonance—as well as actively avoid situations and information likely to increase it.
 What this means, boys and girls, is that the guy was gay himself, as witnessed by the fact that he frequented that particular night club, where he was known by the regulars.

BUT!

He was also very religious .....,  and this conflicted with his homosexuality to the point that one of the only ways to resolve this conundrum  was to experience a psychotic break and go shoot a whole bunch of people.

Islam was used as a justification kids, but it wasn't the actual cause!

And that's another reason why I don't like mainstream, organized religion ...., it screws ya up!

Hey kids, on a slightly lighter note, here's one of the jokes scientists tell each other when they're sitting around having a coffee! ------------------------


Well folks, it seems they're about as smart in Brockville as they are in Wallaceburg!
Police and firefighters were called in after a heated discussion over the shape of the Earth reached fiery levels in eastern Ontario.
Police in Brockville say they were called to St. Lawrence Park on Monday after an intense argument between family members.
They say a woman who insisted the Earth was flat was locking horns with her boyfriend's father, who argued it is round.
Investigators say the 56-year-old man grew so enraged that he started throwing things into their camp fire, including a propane cylinder.
Firefighters were called to put out the flames.
Police say the man took off and will face a mischief charge.
They said "neither party would change their views."
