Its been a long while...

Everyone, stop, take a deep breath, and put on your adult pants, because we have some serious problems, and I don't have any answers. Be the change you want to be is a joke, and let me tell you why, that is before I start talking about some problems we have. It is a joke, because a third of the country is completely and utterly apathetic to what is going wrong, the other two thirds care, at least I hope they care, about what is happening, but are so caught up on being right that they won't listen to each other. Rather than speak, listen, hear and maybe learn, we set our sole focus on destruction, and if the opposing side cannot be destroyed, make it look worse than your own. Hey, I can admit that I have moments where I am also caught up on being right. As for what follows, make up your own mind.

Here we go again... again...

I am crawling out from under my rock, and having to discuss an emotionally charged incident. So here we are again, another entry about gun control, and once again my stance is unchanged. But we need to have this conversation, and some things will be said that some will not like.

Is being too PC a bad thing?

Lets talk Politically Correct, being PC is apparently a new bane of existence for some people. I never realized just how much being PC annoyed some people, but what is politically correct exactly?It is the process of intentionally attempting to use language, or actions that can be considered offensive to members of particular groups.

A Cynical View of Rights...

once commented on rights/privileges that we Americans have or otherwise do not have. It is hard to believe in this day and age we still have people who feel that some rights are merely services and if you can't play, you don't get to play. Seriously.... So here is a list of things that aren't rights, but if you think about it, they probably should be.

The looming Government Shutdown...

So, I am currently waiting on the news to come back from its commercial breaks, and waiting to hear if the government shutdown has been avoided until next month, but the last I had seen the House had voted on a stop gap solution... In other words another shutdown showdown is in the works for next month, maybe. As of this moment, as far as I know, tonight, this night, the government will close up shop.

Attack of the Russian Bots?

So, as I have been doing many things, first and foremost of the New Year, New Me things, I get a random message from a guy on Facebook that I have known for several years, even if we aren't always in contact with each other. Honestly, part of the New Year, New Me thing(s) I am trying... Quit smoking, lower stress and aggravation levels, speak my mind more openly even if those things on my mind are potentially offensive or otherwise call people out, get into a shape that isn't round(ish), and avoid the news and Facebook in general.

A day in the life...

I haven't been writing very much. You know how it goes sometimes, busy doing this or that. Here in the last few days, I have been clearing out a storage unit I acquired, didn't make a ton of money on it, but I did decently enough and still have some stuff in it that can be sold. But along the way, I apparently offended someone, and they have taken to putting screws in my tires.

Story Time

In the last post, I talked about having to get treated for Rabies, and how horrible it was. I mentioned that at some point I would tell the tale of how that came to happen. Yeah, I didn't get bit by something that had rabies, well not the typical animal that has rabies. It's a long story, but I'm just going to make it very short, as short as possible.

Rebuttal To the NYT OP-ED Repeal the Second

I am a gun owner, and I am liberal. I am not going to drop a ton of facts about this or that, but I am going to discuss my views here about Mr. Stephens' (no relation) OP-ED in the NYT from October of this year.

Net Neutrality

So, Net Neutrality is dead, so saith the FCC and Republicans. Somewhere in a cigar smoke filled room, the people who own internet service providers are clapping each other on the back, while drinking the finest of liquors. The internet is now the Wild Wild West, and we inhabitants of it have been disarmed, have no Marshall at our back to protect us. Now I have heard several things in regards to this that have left me scratching my head.
