I often hear the poor want to be poor. The homeless want to be homeless. This is not true for the majority, only a minority which is overly exaggerated by the libertarian and conservative side of politics. Few people want to be poor, to go from hand to mouth, paycheck to paycheck. You will have a few, you always will think that is all they are worth, or are perfectly satisfied with that situation.

I took a few days away, due to some personal issues. They happen to everyone, but under many circumstances, I can just set everything aside and get something committed to paper. But these issues that arose, not so much. No, I do not feel like talking about it.

Do you remember this post, Homelessness, where I said
How many of you knew that Utah will likely end homelessness by the end of next year (2015). I was surprised to hear that, given how conservative the state appears on the surface. I jokingly shared the link on my facebook stating that Utah was a haven for socialism. Really, it was a money saving scheme, but hey socialism is socialism. Turns out that Utah did some research and found nearly a $5,000 savings in ER costs alone, when they outright gave apartments to homeless persons or families (http://www.nationswell.com/one-state-track-become-first-end-homelessness-2015/).

We have homeless, we have hungry, we have the poor trying to struggle through their lives. But where ever their is a problem, rest assured that a charity will immediately spring up to help.

I wanted to write about this yesterday, but I really don't know how I want to go about it. It isn't something that I am exactly comfortable with, I mean there are many things I can just muscle past, but some things, not so much.

Times are changing, and we are once again seeing a shift in the political parties. Rather than a change as previously seen, where the GOP switched from Liberal to Conservative and the Democratic Party switches from Conservative to Liberal, we are seeing the changes move more Conservative, or further left.

contrarian, but I take it to a whole other level. If what he thinks is coming does, I will go out kicking and screaming to the bitter bloody end. It is in my nature to do so, and it is my belief that no labyrinth is inescapable. There is always a way out, a solution to the problem, you just have to bide your time, and think.
... And its worse when its writing then when it is spoken. So who is the offender now. Did Bachmann say something, or Palin maybe? It has to be John Boehner, Newt, or Bush "W", Could it be Dick Cheney? When I say the title, thats what I was thinking, but no, they are all not guilty this time. This time the person who opened his mouth, and committed to paper the asinine comment was Mr. Andrew Brenner from Ohio. Yet another reason for me to never be caught dead driving through or flying over that state.

Chris Christie at the 2014 CPAC
This particular event had slipped my mind. I mean when it comes to the Right getting together for a conference or meeting, it just seems so.. Underwhelming. I know I know they have a vision, and no matter how out of touch the majority that vote for them, or they are, we still get to listen to them spew forth like projectile vomit.

Iraqveteran8888, +hickok45 (the kindly gentleman who reviews various firearms for our pleasure) or others on Facebook? Well, I I potentially have some bad news for you. It appears that Mayors Against (Illegal) Guns, and Moms Demand Action, are putting pressure on the social networking site to outright ban "gun themed pages" on their site.
You know, I do not begrudge anyone of trying to buy food on the cheap. I don't begrudge anyone of using coupons to save a few bucks. But this behavior can be taken to far. And while it is a right people have, sometimes it is just going to far. When you walk into a store, buy two thousand dollars worth of goods, then have to find $1.58 because the store doesn't do negative balances, and you have no money on you, that's going way too far.

Previously posted here, we discussed the prison system. There is another trend in this system. For profit prisons. Basically, anyone and their brother can start a company that specializes in incarceration. You can get a contract with the state (both state and federal governments), and get paid to house inmates.
Everyone remembers that old adage, "You do the crime, you do the time," but there is more to it. You may or may not be aware of it, but that adage is not all that true. The truth of it is, you do the crime, you do the time, and you keep doing the time till the day you die. And that is mostly wrong.
