"Jim" dropped-in (on the previous thread), and commented on several points. Here's my response to some of his opinions:
Hello Jim. As an aside: I've never understood why there's (always) so much mystery steeped in who you are... fake account accusations, etc. Because no matter what name you use... I always know it's you immediately. You really make no attempt to hide your identity. Anyway... be that as it may... let me start from the top.
>>>>"Here's a newsflash for you ... NOBODY CARES ANYMORE".<<<<
Believe it or not Jim... I agree.
It's a very small percentage of society (less than 1%), who frequent these blogs and study this case, on an on-going basis. By and large... no one cares about these folks... or this case anymore. The key words here are... "on an on-going basis".
Case in point:
Sure, if one makes a movie with the name "Manson" connected to it, it will garner viewers... much like connecting with the name "Freddie Kreuger". But... the majority of folks view the movie for entertainment once... and move-on. They don't study this crap year-round. (Moreover... most folks watching the movie, don't know the case well to begin with).
If you canvassed the average street door-to-door... (or, the average mall... or the average restaurant)... and randomly asked folks: Who is "Nancy Pitman", "Cathy Gillies", or "Catherine Share"??... they'd have ZERO clue. In fact, they'd probably call for security, thinking you were a freak... making-up random names.
It's a very small minority who follow this stuff year-round, and I'd venture to say... ATWA is in the same category. No one... (but the small minority, who follow this stuff) even know what "ATWA" stands for.
Jim... these are the reasons, that I take such a light-hearted approach with this whole thing. I laugh, I joke... I have fun with it. To me... it's a hobby. As, I always say: "When it stops being fun, it's gone too far". You know me... I don't really give a shit, unless someone attacks me directly.
I'm also convinced... the case will never be "solved" to everyone's satisfaction.
There will NEVER come a day, when everyone universally agrees on one motive.
There will also never come a day, when anyone can prove beyond doubt to everyone... that their "motive theory" is correct.
It's never going to happen, and anyone who thinks so... should really spend more time with their children... join a gym and work-out... do something kind for an elderly person... or take a class in something worthwhile. "Get a life," as they say.
The folks who take this stuff too seriously, are just padding their own ego... and quite frankly, wasting their time.
I honestly view this case, as a "backdrop" for discussion... nothing more, nothing less.
It's a common theme, which allows friends to come together and chat... have some laughs, and relax. To me... the blog is basically an online version of the "Elks Club". Come down... hang-out with friends... and chew the fat.
>>>>If you want to learn anything about Manson, talk to Star. She's the only one who can give you a REAL perspective of what Charles Manson is like today.<<<<
Star is welcome on the blog anytime. I'd love to hear her perspective. I'd do my best to keep everyone cool, if she visits. You might want to warn me ahead. LOL
>>>>"The Digital Cult Leader is no longer a part of Manson's scene".<<<<
Jim... as I've told you before... I have no beef with Michael. He's always been very cool with me. You have a feud with him, and I respect that... but, it's not my business. For the record: Michael has never contacted me (on-blog, or off-blog), with a bad word to say about you. It's never happened. He's never involved me in this situation at all. I wish you both the best.
>>>>You should spend more of your time keeping track of what's going on in the world as opposed to wasting away in a digital margueritaville".<<<<
As long as you're polite, you're welcome to post links to what you consider current news.
I have no problem with that. Folks can either read and reply... or ignore. It doesn't bother me in the least. I find some of your stuff... informative... and others amusing. But either way... knock yourself out.
