So much *&^%$# going on I hardly know where to start

7 Apr

I know, it’s been MONTHS since I was here last. To be honest, I didn’t feel like it for a while. But with what’s been in the news and being debated everywhere I turn, I need to get some stuff off my chest…..

I just plan on ventin a little bit at a time so I dont have an aneurysm with tryin to get everything out at the same time. 😛

okayyyy…lessse…got it…

How about instead of everybody n their mother, brother, sister, cousin…whoever…gettin a Concealed Carry Permit for a personal weapon…we let people start OPEN CARRY?! Does anybody out there know ANYBODY that’d even THINK  about startin  sh*t when every way you turn there’d be people openly carryin weapons?? If you do know someone like that, get them some help QUICK! 😉

Tryin to limit law-abiding citizens from owning &/or possessing firearms is just about the STUPIDEST thing I’ve ever heard. Like the old sayin goes…when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. That ca-ca aside. Doesnt matter what laws are passed, if people want firearms, theyre gonna get ’em.

Why cant the nimrods doin this concentrate on things that REALLY MATTER?!

Freakin politicians…both liberal and conservative…use ’em for boat anchors or somethin useful.

Why cant they argue over stuff that really matters..like kids in this country goin to bed hungry..or the homeless..

You ever see the show The Newsroom? In the very first episode Jeff Daniels gives a FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC explanation why the U.S.A. is NOT the greatest country in the world any more. I hate to agree with his character because I DO love this country–or the thoughts behind this country..or what this country was and can be again…YOU GET THE IDEA.

I absolutely ABHOR what the federal Government has become. And yeah, it leaks down to the States too, unfortunately.

Dammit, lost my train of thought

be back later…peace

*RATED R POST WARNING* So sick of the Politically Correct assholes

21 Apr

I’ve been reading lately about all the hub-bub around soldiers behavior, “secret” government prisons, and all this other crap.

Don’t even get me started on the upcoming election. Ok, just a little bit…

We will NEVER get this country straightened out until we quit getting rid of 1 crooked, greedy-ass, self-serving, bought-n-paid-for, sorry-assed excuse for a politician for another of THE EXACT SAME BREED.

I think I said this before, but it bears repeating…EVERY SINGLE dipstick in Washington D.C.—from the elected asswipes, from the “political appointed” to their suck-ass office personnel needs to be CANNED, ran out on a rail…SOMETHING. All the PACs, lobbyist firms and the like should be outlawed. ANYTHING that does not benefit the country as a whole should be banned. Term limits for both houses of Congress. Why is there no rule for impeachment of Congress?? as an individual or as a body?? If you’re not working for the betterment of the country….YOU’RE OUT! I know, I know, there are a lot of honest…people…in D.C.. I can’t call them politicians, that’s a dirty word to me. They are in such a small minority, they are almost irrelevant.

OK, back to the original subject…

I am SO AGAINST Political Correctness in ALL forms…it turns my stomach. So WHAT, if a known terrorist gets tortured? big fukkin deal. They BEHEAD people live on the internet for God’s sake! Waterboard their ass, slap their feet. Anything we do to them is NO WHERE NEAR as bad as what they would do to us if the situation was reversed Even with torture, we only go so far.

 

Yeah some soldiers get carried away every now-n-then…fog of war crybabies…quitcher bitchin..until you go to a country where you are on guard for attack EVERY MINUTE of EVERY SINGLE DAY for over a year NO-FUCKING-BODY has the right to bitch. These self-righteous assholes who call themselves “impartial” or “unbiased” reporters make me  wanna PUKE! If they are so impartial and unbiased, why is it the ONLY bullshit they write or report on is detrimental to the USA military, or the USA foreign policies in general?

I read a story a couple days ago about some whiney-ass going in front of a military judge to try to get allowed to “observe military commissions” at Gitmo. “The public and press have a constitutional right…”  Hey Dickhead..what in the constitution gives you that right? The First Amendment gives you the right to write, print, broadcast any bullshit you want, NOT to horn in on what need to be–for security reason of people involved and the country–secret or secure tribunals for known threats against this country.

One of the biggest problems this country has…aside from the briefly ranted on above.. is this PC bullshit…If your people aren’t american indian…WE KNOW you weren’t born here dickhead! ********-american–fill in the blank– puts America second….

I AM AN AMERICAN CITIZEN FIRST AND FOREMOST

And this trying to please everybody…screw that…if another country doesn’t like what we do or say or want…fuck ’em…guess they don’t need the help we offered that bad. We’ve got enough problems at home, what the hell difference does it make how other countries see us??!

WE ARE THE ONLY SUPERPOWER LEFT…tell the rest..if you don’t like it …PISS OFF!  Don’t ask for military, financial, medical, food aid of any kind

This running around like the fat kid at school, tryin to please everybody doesn’t do anything but get you tired and sweaty. PLUS, in doing all these good deeds around the world, you’re neglecting YOUR OWN PEOPLE FUCKNUTS!

It’s also about damn time we started charging the same price for wheat and other exports that we are being charged for the oil these countries are selling us. We let all these countries…most barely out of the Stone Age…walk all over us and talk shit about us and just smile and ask them if they want more…I’m pretty sure radioactive oil will work as well as regular oil if you catch my drift…..

Later \m/

 

 

What The…………..?!

2 Feb

I thought it was a fluke last year when this happened. Until it happened again this year….

What is up with movies being nominated for Academy awards, Golden Globes, etc. before they are even released??!

Last year, The King’s Speech wasn’t even released until either the week before or right after the academy Awards.

Now there’s this movie The Artist…no clue what it’s about. Apparently, it is silent or black and white….W….T……H??!  I hadn’t even HEARD  of this flick until it was nominated for something or other.

I mean granted, the choice of movies the last few years have out-and-out SUCKED but come ON people, nominating movies before they’re even RELEASED??

It seems like every freakin movie being released is ONLY concentrating on being the “biggest, baddest, best special F/X, 3D movie”.  Personally, I’m not to crazy about all the 3D crap out there.  They make a movie about NOTHING then fill it up with 3D F/X and drool over the money we pay to see these over-priced P.O.S.s.  I guess as long as some schmuck ‘ll pay they keep puttin out crap. 😉

In case you haven’t figured it out, NO I haven’t seen a single 3D movie in the theater. I don’t even rent or buy Blu-ray. My DVD player still works fine. When it breaks, then I’ll move up.  But even then, I might not go Blu-ray discs, time’ll tell. 😛

Totally Off the Wall…

28 Jan

Let me say this right from the start….

I listen to all genres of music. My favorite is probably–what is considered now–classic adult rock.  Styx, Eagles, Boston, etc. But I listen to almost everything.

When I am just chillin’ ( or trying to quiet the voices 😛 ) I prefer smooth jazz.  Today I ran across a pianist though that just blew me away.  Yiruma from Korea.  If you want a mellow atmosphere, you owe it to yourself to check this guy out. wow…

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=yiruma&oq=yiruma&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=1030l2547l0l5015l6l6l0l0l0l0l0l0ll0l0

I put the “All Yiruma–Playlist” on my youtube page and just let it go.  He really is great.

Actually, I’m listenin’ to him as I type this and it mellows me so much, I kinda go blank every now n then; losin’ myself in the music.

I had planned on not singling out individuals in this blog but, what the hell, I got the right to change my mind 😉

Ok, I’m enjoyin’ him a little too much, so I’m gonna check out for now

Political bushwa

26 Jan

Happy Humpday…

Anybody else notice that news coverage of candidates platforms, where they stand on issues, etc. usually only takes 3-5 minutes BUT “news” of their marital issues, taxes, etc. takes 10+ minutes A NIGHT?!

IMHO, the last several presidential elections have all been “the lesser of 2 evils”.  Then the yahoos get into office and they can’t even respect THE PHYSICAL OFFICE SPACE of the most powerful “leader” of the free world.

Washington is W-A-Y to full of politicians.  They spend more time placing blame than fixing things. DO YOUR DAMN JOBS!

They live in a fantasy world where ONLY what they want for themselves matters.  The government “of the people, by the people and for the people” that Lincoln spoke of has been gone for years.

1) Fire every elected official.  Cancel their “full salary retirement”, let ’em draw Social Security.

2) Fire all “political appointees”–they’re as bad as the elected officials.

3)Institute term limits in both houses………….3a) Toward the end of a person’s term, they get evaluated; if they didn’t perform their jobs satisfactorily, they don’t get to run again EVER for any elected office.

4) REQUIRE EVERY MEMBER OF CONGRESS and their staff to sign moral contracts based on the laws that EVERY AMERICAN has to follow.

5) Abolish PACs, lobbyists, the electoral college and all other self-interest groups.

6) BAN all “gifts”, “incentives”, “contributions”, etc. to individuals.

7) Use the popular vote in elections.

This is just a few of the things I would LOVE to see happen. This country is headed down the shitter. IT HAS TO STOP BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.

The out-of-touch, greedy, self-serving, narcissistic  dipsticks are ruining this country.

Ever hear the saying….”Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others”?  That is fast becoming a fallacy, if you ask me.

I know that a lot of this is unrealistic but I am a fed-up, pissed-off American.  I have to vent.

Kindle prices vs paperback prices

18 Jan

OK, I don’t know how many people out there have Kindles or any ebook readers, so this might not apply to you.

I’ll use a book I just received today for an example…

I Am Legend

Yeah, yeah I know, the book’s been out for a while.  I loved the movie (WILL S.!) I’ve seen it…I dunno, a BUNCH of times.  I finally figured I’d get the book and see what all the hubbub was about vis-a-vis the book is so much better than the movie.  I’ll let you know where I fall on that issue after I read it….

ANYway, the book measured at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″…bigger than the standard paperback…kinda like a “soft” hard cover, know what I mean?

Kindle price as of 230p est on Amazon…. $7.19 USD

my “paperback”…….$2.50 NEW…got it for .01 + $3.99 S&H (used) so $4.00…

that’s a side issue though…

Using Amazon’s prices ONLY…..Kindle $7.19….MASS MARKET paperback…the el cheapo cover….$7.99…my book that I got….$10.17

How in the heck do distributors justify an ebook being only .80 CHEAPER than the cheapest paperback?!  There’s no printer, ink, paper charges. Also, no shipping, storage, postage…the list goes on.

I know a lot of writers self-publish on Amazon.  I think Amazon should have a place for it’s customers to sign up and volunteer to proofread, edit, etc  for some of these guys, personally, but that’s something for another day too.

But, the big guys who list on Amazon REALLY need a reality check. They want to treat ebooks like a physical thing.  I see the future coming…they’re gonna price themselves out of business because the writers will wise up and start self-publishing because the profit margin is so much higher.  I’ll bet ANYTHING the writers aren’t getting a bigger piece of the ebook sales. It’s just padding the publishers pockets….greedy b**tards.

I know several good authors on Amazon and most of them either self-pub or have created their own online pub companies with other authors…

ROCK ON GUYS!!!!!

Good for you. Why give away most of the profits from your sweat, blood and babies to somebody else?  YOU DESERVE IT. I know you still might have to pay for pro editors or whatever; BUT your share’ll be much higher over all, won’t it?

Hey, BTW—how the heck can I become an editor if I need experience, but I can’t get experience because nobody’ll hire me because I don’t have any experience? If you understood that random thought..’splain it to me. ok? 😛

Dumbing-down America

17 Jan

NO idea how many people this post might piss-off, but it’s my post soooo….if you don’t like it TOUGH!

First, I don’t like “reality” shows. There’s nothing real about them.  Every one is so scripted, edited and re-enacted; there shouldn’t even BE a “reality show” genre.

I will give credit to the original—Survivor, season 1.  Of course, The Deadliest Catch has always been real. They just have to edit down the footage to fit into the 1 hour segments each week.

Every season–which recently became twice-a-year–see’s the return of —or introduction of new– innane drivel. Do people really believe “their votes choose the winners each week”? come ON folks. How many times has the “favorite” been “voted” out? Or the least  favorite moved up? puh-LEASE.

The T.V. has finally taken the nickname “idiot box” to a WHOLE new level. It seems the jackholes that run the networks–cable channels as well as the big 3(4), don’t even TRY to come up with new ideas for shows……

“hey what if a guy and his loser family can’t get real jobs? Let’s make them (insert stupid-ass idea here–the dumber the better)Oh and let’s make sure the viewers can be disgusted and/or grossed-out each week, either by the looks of the characters or their behavior”….OR…”let’s put wannabes or has-beens on stage and let the mindless drones watch and THINK they have control over anything!” mwah–HA-HA-HAAAAAA

As the years have progressed, the minds behind some of the R.S.–as I will call them–have gotten more and more filled with B.S. it seems.

SyFy (SyFy = SciFi? REALLY?! another blog another time) channel is coming out with 2 new RS’s. Ohhh Myyy GAWDDD! Do people ACTUALLY pay other people to think up this CRAP??!

HOW THE HELL DO YOU PEOPLE SLEEP AT NIGHT??!!!!!!

I guess that as long as people will put up with being shamed, degraded or insulted just to get their 15 minutes, it will never end. PLEASE FIND YOUR SELF RESPECT.

Here’s an idea, if you can’t think of a new idea for a show….look back 5 or so years at some shows that didn’t make it then, maybe they were before their time, or were cancelled before their time…perfect example…FIREFLY…Las Vegas—without Delinda (whiney, spoiled bitch killed the show) NYPD Blue, the ORIGINAL LAW & ORDER! –Jeremy Sisto and Anthony Anderson were awesome. Man, so many others…..

*deep breath*

Ok, I’ve vented enough for now, maybe….
