I try to be nice to the police, I try to be as understanding and nonjudgmental as I can when it comes to how they do their job. I understand that they work long hours, often dealing with the most wretched of humanity, people who would rather cut your throat than look at you. They do with with little respect for the potential danger they face, and for crappy wages. Its a crappy job, and for our part we are wrong to look down at all police officers, because we hear about all the bad ones.

It seems that Michael Sam, the first openly gay man to be drafted into the NFL was released from the St. Louis Rams last week. This was one I was expecting, but not for the reasons given. Due to my living situation I haven't been able to keep up with NFL news and happenings, so I was shocked to find out he had been cut from the 53 man roster.

Of all the things the conservative libertarian teanut idiots of America (and well I am covering a broad range of people with that statement of which do not fall into one specific group or another) have to complain about our political system has regressed to such a level of discourse as to complain about the color suit that the president was wearing when he gave a press conference this past week.

Yeah, its click bait, I admit it. But even while I am dealing with some tenuous internet issues, and haven't been around for a few days, some sad news came to me. Robin Williams is dead, the demons in his life finally took their toll on him.

Several months ago I wrote about the myth of the welfare queen, and at that time I said that while there was some truth in it, some people abuse the system, I also stated that it was like Bigfoot or an UFO. Something reported often, but there just wasn't much proof of it. Well, I stand here today telling you all, I was wrong. There are welfare queens. They leech off the system, and we need to cut these ticks off.

So, I was shown an article that asked can there be a third party created that would not help the Democratic Party. Honestly, any third party created would take away some of the base support from the Democratic Party, but it would also decimate the GOP.

Been pretty tied down these last few days. You know how it goes, job interviews that seem endless and go no where, filling out an endless stream of applications, or otherwise trying to round up money and food. The story of those who are poor or homeless around the world. Why should it be any other way? Along the way I found a petition in regards to a specific church, I am silently watching it. I continue to write, but I am not in the mood to. So here is just a quick update on myself and some other thoughts.
