Since the time immediately before I came into this world, taxation has been an issue, then we weren't into the free trade era. Now, I am no protectionist, by any stretch becoming isolated from the world is an extremely bad idea. But like so many things in this world, all good (and bad) things must come with moderation. Ah, where to begin with this cluster of a mess.

Everyday it gets harder and harder to try and defend the privilege that I hold to keep and bear arms. Every day I hear people screaming about being persecuted (specifically from Christians). So, yesterday there was yet another mass shooting, this time at a Planned Parenthood center, in Colorado. Before details were even released, many of my peers and myself, were able to profile this scum.

Pink Floyd's The Wall. Another Brick in the Wall pt. 2
In my previous rant I railed on the so called pursuit of happiness, and liberty. Two very important things that I feel come with finding happiness, and liberty are education and healthcare. Think about it, even if you assume that happiness is within, that requires having a healthy body to find it. However, while I do see some merit in the concept of happiness being within, having money can make some very miserable situations tolerable.

Yeah, I am ashamed of my fellow countrymen and women, and my government. This is about more than the Syrian Refugees. This is about the dysfunction in all levels of government, about free trade, outsourcing, taxes, police brutality, the state of education, healthcare, my sense of personal liberty, and the ability to not only pursue happiness, but find it.
I was never a fan of the war on terror. Truthfully, I am not a fan of war in general. I try to advocate for peace, yeah, it seems foolish, given there are times to fight. But where are we now? What has this last round in the middle east gotten us?

It seems the impending pink slip and fresh job hunt has given me some energy to sit down and write again. Bad news everyone.
A while back I was talking about Net Neutrality on here. I spoke about how it affects all of us, but did not set prices for plans already in place. Just that it doesn't allow companies to slow connections to specific sites. While I still support the need for Net Neutrality, at this moment I feel we need to go further.

Have you ever felt blue. For whatever reason thoughts come into your head and blink out of existence in mere seconds. You struggle to even get out of bed? Yeah, you might have a touch of depression, and as I sit back and look over these past several months, I notice that I haven't done much of anything here. Stories and entries I have started are sitting unfinished, and at best only a small handful ever see the light of day.
