D.C. Man on Fire: Another Sign of Impending Hysteria

Is the country starting to give in to the sense of madness that has gripped it since Tuesday’s government shutdown?

Yesterday, a man set himself on fire in front of the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. He continues to remain unnamed, and is still at Washington Medical Center in critical condition.


Nicole Didyk, an environmental engineer for the Federal Aviation Administration, told NBC that she was out for a run when she saw spotted a man with small flames on him.

“There were five gentlemen hitting him with their T-shirts.”, she said. “When he fell over his arms were all white. He was burned really bad.”

The location where the man was found on fire is about six blocks from the U.S. Capitol, where a high speed car chase on Thursday ended with a woman, now known to be Miriam Carey, a 34-year-old mother and post-partum depression sufferer, being shot and killed by law enforcement officers.

Her boss of eight years, Dr. Steven Oken, described Carey as a “non-political person” who was “always happy.”

“I would never in a million years believe that she would do something like this,” he said. “It’s the furthest thing from anything I would think she would do, especially with her child in the car. I am floored that it would be her.”

What is happening in our country? Do we have a collective sense of hopelessness, because of this situation, that was triggered on Tuesday? What is driving people insane about this pickle?

Could it be the $300 million dollar per day cost for NOT running the government? Or perhaps the fact that around 80,000 government employees deemed “nonessential” have been sitting at home getting more broke all week, while Congress continues the playground bickering, which apparently pays pretty well?

The scary part: This is only day 5.

    That is a good question and the answer to your question is yes the country is falling into madness. The country has been hysterical since 9/11. That is the reality. We have simply been doing things out of nothing but fear. Just look at the news every night. It is nothing but fear, fear, fear, sensationalism, sensationalism, sensationalism, bad news, bad news, bad news.

    Here is another thing that is happening but is not being covered in the mainstream press. More people are waking up to the fact that we were lied to about 9/11 and questioning why we have been at war for 12 years. I hear more talk of this in my community than you can imagine. Of course, no one goes on record because they are afraid. People know the NSA spying program is about Americans and not terrorists.

    Yes, you will get some diehard people who believe everything we were told about 9/11. Those people will believe the moon is made of cheese. However, the reality is that every poll is showing that as the years pass more and more people simply do not believe what we are told. You think the Kennedy outrage is bad? Just wait another 20 years — as more information comes to light, it will be nothing compared to 9/11.

    It is the obvious things that are making people question things. A good example is that we were able to recover 80,000 pieces of the Challenger when it crashed. We recovered black boxes, clothing, body parts, and landing gear. The challenger was coming in from orbit at a speed of 17,000 mph. We literally put together the pieces in a huge hanger. Yet, on 9/11, larger planes that were flying at only 500 mph seemingly vaporized into thin air. No black boxes, no body parts, no landing gear, no clothing. My God, just look at the PA site and the Pentagon site. Literally, nothing was found. Read the first hand accounts of the first responders. None of it makes any sense.

    That is just one small example of how things don’t make sense. There are hundreds of examples I could give you. It is all ridiculous and people know that. When people know things are wrong and are powerless to do things about it, they act out in crazy ways. What adds fuel to the fire is that the people in charge are literally doing nothing. It makes people very mad and people act out. It is that simple.

    Good question you asked.
