I have edited a homepage for my site. I added links to my jquery files from my stylelibrary locates on the same site. below is my placeholder head code.

    <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderAdditionalPageHead" runat="server">
<meta name="CollaborationServer" content="SharePoint Team Web Site" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="StyleLibrary/CSS/redmond/jquery-ui-1.8.23.custom.css"/>
<script type="text/javascript" src="StyleLibrary/JS/jquery-1.8.0.min.js"/>
<script type="text/javascript" src="StyleLibrary/JS/jquery-ui-1.8.23.custom.min.js"/>
    <script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {

for some reason I see in fiddler that only the css file in jquery.min.js is loaded why doesn't it load jquery custom.. This is really weird and I don't see why It would load the others and not this specific one. I am trying to create a tab ui

Try this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="StyleLibrary/JS/jquery-1.8.0.min.js"></script>

The script Tag omission must have a start tag and end tag.

Why dont self closing script tags work
