Does it seem like the word raid is getting thrown around a lot lately?

So I would like to start off by saying I am neither against or for the occupy wallstreet movement.  I think its great that people are protesting things that they believe in, but I feel a little bit like they are protesting too broad a range of ideas to really make a change.  Regardless of that there is a very troubling trend regarding the occupy wallstreet movement.....raids

It is becoming more and more troublesome to hear that raids are being carried out across countries.  Raids on law abiding citizens.  Some would argue that they are not law abiding due to the fact that  they do not have the proper permits and things of that nature, which I would grant you.  However there is a huge difference between a law breaker and someone who doesn't get the correct permit.  The majority of these people are not criminals, and yet are being pepper sprayed and arrested.....

This is the United States of America people!  We are entitled to protest under our constitution.  Public land is just that, public.   Why are people being pepper sprayed and beaten?  I don't care how much they piss you off, there is no reason to take those kinds of extreme actions.

And for those of you that are thinking I am anti-police you are dead wrong.  As a first responder I understand that those responding are under a huge amount of stress, however police are not above the law.  If a cop beats a protester its still assault and battery.  I don't understand this free pass to pepper spray/beat people.  Police can use force if necessary to remove someone that is breaking the law, pepper spraying someone at a sit in is NOT the use of force if necessary.

Raids are scary to me.  Its one thing to disperse a crowd, but a whole other thing to raid and arrest 150 people because you don't like the fact they don't have a permit/are ruining the grass.  This is the US not some dictatorship that raids people.  Police, state and local politicians do your jobs, but you do not have the authority to conduct raids on the people of the United States!

Bye Bye Barney Frank

Thank God Barney Frank is not running for congress again!  It seems like people in MA love this guy, but he is a bum and has done a lot to damage personal liberties in MA.  Lets hope that someone with a little common sense (be it democrat, republican, libertarian, etc.) runs for this office

Time to shit or get off the pot

So I have decided that I have reached a point in my life that I need to make some changes.  I have been trying to live very much the way that I did when I was 21/22 years old and that just isn't working.  So here is a small list of things that I want to focus on improving over the next year or so.

Eat right-
This is top of the list because, at the moment, my eating habits are well below where I want them to be.  I must admit that after JW was born I got a bit lax about taking care of myself and my eating habits have really gone down the shitter.  So first and foremost this month I am working on having good meals (starting with an actual breakfast, not just a granola bar.)

Drink less-
I am not 21 anymore.  I think in general it will be good to cut down on the amount I am drinking.  Occasional drinks and drinks at get together are, of course, still perfectly fine.

I have become entirely to uptight in the past two years.  I think its just the fact that I have become busy and we had the wedding and then (not long after) JW came.  I just need to remember to relax and have fun!

Just because a rule pisses you off doesn't mean it is racist/sexist/against a religion

I am all for personal liberties and all that, but just because something goes against what you want doesn't mean that it is infringing on your civil liberties.

I read this article recently about a young Muslim girl who was offended by the fact that she was not allowed to wear her hijab while in her ROTC uniform.  She claims that it is discrimination by her superiors for saying that it isn't allowed.

Sorry kid, but ROTC is a uniformed group.  By joining it you are agreeing to certain uniform restrictions, that's a part of ROTC.  No one is telling you that you cannot practice your religion, but there are certain rules in things like the military.

Captains log...stardate 10-11-11

So I have been horrible about updating either of my blogs lately and I have decided to give everyone an update on all of the stuff that has been going on in my life, hopefully this gets the creative juices flowing.

As many readers know MW and I had our little boy on 29 August of this year.  Little JW is doing very well, getting big, and keeping his parents on their toes.  It has been an interesting view into something that is completely different than the way we had been living our lives before.  Its has had it's difficult times, but overall it is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had.  Everyone is healthy and happy (although I think MW could do with some more nap time during the day!)Below is a picture!

(Don't worry I will include some more pictures as time goes on.  Also this was 100% him putting his finger like that)

Less than a month later my Dad died suddenly.  Luckily he had gotten to see JW before he died, but there were never any pictures taken, nor did he hold the little guy.

I am not overly emotional to begin with, but Dad dying put me in sort of an odd spot with a lot of people I feel like.  Many people know the history between my dad and I, but for you that don't it was not the greatest.  He was a drunk who didn't take the good care of my family and forced me to jump into the adult roll well before I needed to.  I am not to upset about this as I have turned into someone that I am proud of and I wouldn't be where I was without those experiences.    I made my peace with him long ago, so I can say that he went out with us as friends. However I became the next of kin and executor of the estate when he died.  Technically my brother is next of kin as well, but has taken zero interest in anything.  I am not ashamed to say that I hate this job, my father left me with zero and I am expected to take care of all his affairs....yea sure I will get right on that.

Needless to say the last two months have been very busy and I have been horrible about updating my blog.  I want to do this much more, so hopefully I can pull out a couple of posts a week.  I will continue the political aspects of this blog and its great history of hating stupid will be carried on!

When did having a personal opinion become a crime

This Florida teacher is currently facing possible termination from a PUBLIC high school for comments he made regarding his belief that gay marriage is an abomination....When did it become it a crime to have an opinion?

This teacher is a teacher-of-the-year winner and have a 100% clean record. His opinion has not been uttered in the classroom, he made a comment on HIS Facebook page. Just because someone doesn't agree with this teachers opinion (myself) doesn't mean that his First Amendment rights can be violated.

It seems like people are forgetting that the First Amendment covers all speech, regardless of what people think of the statements. It amazes me that this is even a possibility, the school system has no right to fire him. This is a publicly funded institution and for them to take a stand against freedom of thought is absolutely appalling.

Whats next? I believe in owning a gun so I get fired? I don't like polygamist so I get fired? I believe in God I get fired? People need to see how dangerous this way of thinking is. This is not a question of whether or not his opinion is correct, its an issue of the government being able to DECIDE what is right. Unreal

College campuses and gun owners

Today I read this opinion article on I really wanted to right a response to it, so here I go.

The idea that fully licensed gun owners cannot conceal and carry on campuses is completely ridiculous. This is the same argument pro and anti gun people have had since the begining. How is a rule like people cannot carry a weapon on campus going to stop those that are willing to shoot people? It's not because they do not care. If someone is willing to shoot another person for no reason they certainly don't care about breaking this rule.

As for those kids who drink too much and then go waving a weapon around then that's a problem. However there is already a precedent for that, arrest them, charge them and remove their permit to carry. I mean the rule is already in place to deal with that issue. Gun owners do not want their permit to be removed and will not go waving it around like crazies.

This guy is saying lets just prevent those who are licensed from carrying, how does that teach you anything? When you get a permit you accept certain rules, you mess that up you go to jail,I do not see the issue.

The bigger problem in this whole thing is getting people to follow the rules, that's easy just enforce the already standing laws. If a person waves a gun, gun and person go downtown. This is why you have all these crazy things happening at colleges, apparently they operate outside the law. The college campuses have a responsibility to enforce the rules.

I don't understand why its different if you are under 21 and get caught drinking on campus vs off campus. Sure the campus has rules and they should be followed, but if a kid break the law report him/her thats pretty easy.

Many people will say this is a black and white outlook, well yes it is its called the law. Kids will continue to drink, I certainly did despite being at a military school where I would get demerits and extra duty. But if they are dumb/unlucky enough to get caught well thats the way the cookie crumbles.

Gun owners aren't the issue, law breakers are. Proceed accordingly.

Can't have politics without compromise, in fact you can't have much

The US government works mainly on one principle, compromise. Senators and representatives are elected by the people, to represent the people, but that doesn't mean that gridlock needs to happen on every issue.

The problem right now is pansy ass liberal leadership and a conservative group that is so full of Tea Party ass-hats that the country cannot work. First I will address the less evil of the two, the pussy ass liberal leadership.

Why is Barack Obama, the President of the United States of America the one that has been carrying out negotiations with the GOP leadership? Easy because Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the liberal leadership are to weak to say anything. The President should be the last line of defense in this, not the go to guy.

The main issue with the Congress right now is the Tea Party. The Tea Party are ridiculous. How do they expect anything to get done if compromise is not part of the story? By continuing with an all or nothing approach they have successfully prevented the government from doing it's job. I understand the thought process behind "representing your constituents", but are you going to tell me that all the people who voted for you are so black and white in their thought process? No they aren't, Tea Partiers you were elected to represent all people in your state, not just those who agree with the way you think. You are effectively throwing the entire country into all these issues because if the rest of congress doesn't play by your rules then you are going to take your ball and go home....fuck yourself.

And this is from someone who doesn't think raising the debt limit all the time is the answer and supports a constitutional amendment requiring the US Government to balance their budget. You need to compromise, not because it's the right thing to do, but because it's your FUCKING JOB

That being said...

My previous post on the Vancouver Canucks aside, Boston Bruins fans don't sink to things like this and this

It's a game! Yes I love it, but to ruin for any fans that are paying good money is just low. Don't be like that and don't make the rest of us seem like we are at that level.

I hope everyone, Bruins and Canucks fans enjoy the game tonight!

Im sorry Canucks....did Timmy Thomas hurt you?

So I agree with the majority of the points made in this article about the Vancouver/Boston game 4 tonight. However I would like to draw peoples attention to number 6

Timmy Thomas had just put a huge hit on Henrik Sedin in the crease. But apparently the Vancouver coach thinks that this style of play is unfair
"It certainly pleased the crowd, but Vigneault said this morning the Canucks have spoken with the league about this play. They have been in dialogue with the league, through series supervisor Kris King, since prior to Game 1 on Thomas’ aggressive style. “We’ve talked to the NHL about him initiating contact like did on Hank,” Vigneault said at his press briefing. “They’re aware of it. Hopefully they’re going to handle it.” If the league agrees with him, they’ll inform the Bruins that Thomas’ aggressive style has its limits."

O I am sorry Vancouver did you fall down and go boom? You talked to the league about this play?? Dude you are in the crease and you got hit, boo hoo. You can't dictate what style of hockey a goalie can play. If there is a penalty then the refs should call it, but you go to the NHL because you don't like the fact that Tim Thomas sat down one of your stars?

Fuck you Vancouver. You guys were one of my favorite teams coming into this series, but I have found out really you are just whiny bitches.

Damn you Patriot Act

I found this map while on the Cato Institute website. The Cato Institute is " a public policy research organization — a think tank — dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace. Its scholars and analysts conduct independent, nonpartisan research on a wide range of policy issues." In other words a libertarian think tank.

Check out this map right after 2001 and look at the spike in questionable and constitutionally appalling police activity. We have laws for a reason, but the USA PATRIOT ACT makes it seem like the ends justify the means. They don't!

This map really blew my mind!

How did you get to be a state legislator?

MW found this article earlier today and posted it up on Twitter. When I read it my first reaction was simply, how did this guy get to be a legislator?

"During the House's debate, Rep. Pete DeGraaf, a Mulvane Republican who supports the bill, told her: "We do need to plan ahead, don't we, in life?"

Bollier asked him, "And so women need to plan ahead for issues that they have no control over with a pregnancy?"

DeGraaf drew groans of protest from some House members when he responded, "I have spare tire on my car.""

Pete DeGraaf you are a dumbass. Saying that people need to plan ahead for rape is like saying that people should wear a bullet proof vest at all time to prevent themselves from getting shot. How could you possibly be in the state legislature? Your job is to help run the state of Kansas!?

Thats funny I thought there was something called FREEDOM OF RELIGION?

San Fransisco YOU FUCKING SUCK!!!

In what mixed up country do you think that you have the right to even vote on a freedom of religion question?? FREEDOM of religion!

You self righteous pieces of shit don't have a right to have a say in the private religious and health practices of law abiding US citizens

Very rarely do I support Massachusetts legislation, but thank God this got beat down before it even made it into the legislature here

Breaking news!!

Breaking news! Congressional leaders have agreed to a four year extension of the USA PATRIOT ACT

NO GOOD AT ALL! This piece of legislation has ZERO regard for private liberties in the United States!

Please call/write your senators and tell them to repeal this legislation!!!

Preparing for a zombie apocalypse, CDC style

You want to talk about a great way to get people to take a look at your website? Post something about what to do in case of a zombie apocalypse!

The CDC today posted a what to do in a zombie apocalypse blog post on their emergency preparedness and response website. It was a fantastic way to draw attention to a very important website!

Not many people, especially 20-30 years olds (besides myself, I have it as a favorite) think about preparing for emergencies before hand. It's very easy to not think about it at all, until it happens. This is a great way to get the important idea of preparedness out into the younger crowd!

CDC was trending earlier on Twitter, I wonder how much they upped their traffic today?

This was just a funny comic and who doesn't want to see a funny comic on Monday morning?

I mean wouldn't you have porn if you had been in hiding since 2011?

I am ecstatic at the result of the SEAL team raid on this fortress, but that doesn't mean it should still be front page stuff on CNN. How is this guy able to disrupt life even when a SEAL put a couple bullets in his stupid face?

Wet interesting option

Last month I read a story about a wet-house

and I have been tossing the idea around in my head for a couple of weeks now and I think its an interesting option...

A wet-house is sort of the other side of the coin from a dry-house. A wet house is a community house that allows alcoholics to drink. At first the thought goes against everything we have been raised to think, but lets break it down.

A wet-house provides a place for alcoholics, many of them homeless. to go and stay. The person is given a stipend of 89$ per month to do with what they will, including buying alcohol. The issue that some people have is this is partly financed by the taxpayers, with the rest being financed by Catholic Charities. It seems very odd that someone would be able to spend taxpayer money on alcohol, but lets think think it through for a second.

The amount of money paid to the residents of St Anthony's residence in St. Paul Minnesota is 89 dollars per month. There are approximately 60 people taking advantage of this service.

$89*60 people=$5,340 per month

$5,340*12 months=$64,080 per year

Yes 64,00 dollars a year is a lot to you and me. However in the United States a hospital cannot refuse care to any patient, regardless of their health care situation (which is the way it should be) How much money do you think is spend every year in illness and injury due to homelessness? lets take a look (the below information was found at and belongs to them)

"A University of Washington research team studied a group of 95 chronically homeless alcoholics and found that in one year, they cost taxpayers more that $8 million in hospitalizations, detox centers and incarcerations.

When the same group spent one year in Seattle's Housing first program-- residences where they are allowed to drink--the same group cost $4 million in taxpayer money." (This study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association)

This is a simple math equation here guys. If it is cheaper to have houses where they can drink, then thats the way to go. They cannot get better until they decide to, which is the truth no matter where they live. Why wouldn't we at least give them a place to live??

Swat called in due to rifle...o wait its an umbrella

This is what a rifle looks like
This is what an umbrella looks like
How do you fuck that up? Today the SWAT team was called in because someone said they saw a person with a rifle....turns out it was an umbrella.

I wonder what the cost to tax payers is because some moron doesn't know the difference between a rifle and an umbrella is.

This is what it actually looked like. Rifle no way, samurai sword on the other hand....

A rule applies to everyone, not just people that look different.

It seems odd to me that people want procedures put in place to help with security, but then get upset when said procedures are followed. This story ,about a 6 year old receiving a pat down by a TSA scanner, is very hot on the internet at the moment. Why are people upset about this?

So what if she is 6 years old? Terrorists don't care if they a 6 months old or 60 years old. There was an issue with the original body scan (I have read conflicting reports on whether she went through a scan or the parents opted out of the scan) so the next point in the procedure is the pat down. Where is the issue? It is done with the parents present and is over quickly. If you don't this to possibly happen to your child than don't fly. Flying isn't a right people, there are rules. If you do not like the safety rules (which everyone wanted beefed up after 9/11) then don't fly simple as that.

You can't have it both ways people. If you want security on planes these are the rules. You can't have that for all the people named Amir or people that have brown skin and not for sweet little 6 year old kid. The only way to do this is a rule that EVERYONE needs to abide by.

Why don't we just elect a bunch of least we can pay them in Bananas

Government Shutdown....
This is a topic that I have been struggling with for the past couple weeks. I knew I wanted to say something about it, but I wasn't sure exactly how I felt.

Let me outline what will happen if the government shuts down (at least so far as I can figure)

-All non essential workers will be furloughed and sent home until the government restarts.
They will keep their jobs, but will not be paid
-Non essential versus essential will be determined by the individual agencies following some "guidelines" from the feds
-Essential jobs will continue
Essential jobs include Air traffic controllers, airport security, military and defense, mail
-Non essential jobs will include but not be limited to
Trash men in DC (how is sanitation not essential?), administrative jobs, national parks, passport processing, tax return processing etc.

All of these things I can look at and say ok. Not that I agree with them, but in principle i could see those as essential vs non essential (except trash collection) There were two points that I would like to point out that I cannot fathom or accept as the right way to to things
-Congress will continue to get paid
-other essential jobs, including military families, will not get paid

Those two points are unimaginable to me. The people whose job it is to set a budget didn't do their job and got us into this mess in the first place. Those people will continue to get paid, but those who are doing their job correctly will not get paid? I live paycheck to paycheck, as do many Americans, but those would be the people losing their pay?

Well fuck you congress. Fuck you house of Representatives, fuck you White House. The fact that you cannot pull your heads out of your parties asses and put together a budget is pathetic. This is part of your job, your fucking job! Do your job! Anyone who says bring on the shutdown your are a fucking tool. Thats peoples livelihoods! Thats your Armed service going into harms way and not even getting the shitty pay they did before! Thats your neighbors, your friends and your family so grow up you child

Democrats grow a set of balls. The country is trillions of dollars in debt, you will not get everything you want. Spending needs to be cut, which means programs will be cut. To have so much of my paycheck taken away is ridiculous. I make the money if I want to help people I will.

Republicans there is something called separation of church and state, I would appreciate it if you fucking listened to it. Ideological problems should not be holding up anything. Planned Parenthood is a fabulous organization that helps treat thousands of men and woman across the country who cannot afford the current health care system. Pregnancies are legal, get over it. You want to change that? Your allowed to try, but your concern now is putting forth a budget, not regulating a womans body.

Tea Partiers you are the worst group of asshats I have ever seen. Don't try and call yourselves Patriots, Minutemen, especially don't say you are small government. Compromise doesn't equate to weakness. You can have your ideals fine, but this is the United States of America, not the Tea Party express. You represent your constituents, but they are only a portion of the US. It;s your responsibility to put forth a workable budget, not one that caters to your every want. You aren't libertarians so don't call yourself one. You aren't pro Constitution so don't call yourself that. You are bunch of whiny bitches who want to take their ball and go home because someone wants to play different rules at kick ball.

How can you not be worried?

So I don't really understand why people are not worried with a 0-5 start for the Red Sox this season. Now granted it isn't the end of the world, thats not what I am saying. Nor does a 0-5 start mean that the Red Sox will not do fantastic this year. But at any point in the year if the sox went into a 0-5 slide, including 2 losses to the sickening bad Cleveland Indians, people would be up in arms.

The fact that none of our starting pitchers have made it through a game (even a short 4-5 innings) without letting up at least 3 runs. That doesn't concern anyone? Why doesn't that concern anyone??

37 runs have been scored against us
Our two best starting pitchers have an ERA of 5.40 each.
Jon Lackey has an ERA of 22.09....22.09 ERA? How can any Red Sox fan not be worried our second pitcher has an ERA of 22.09??

All I am saying is that there is def a reason for concern, not panic, but concern!!

Welcome back baseball?

That was the worst opening series of baseball that I have seen from the Red Sox ever. Ouch. Lets break it down

10 Homeruns allowed over three nights
26 runs allowed over three games

Hopefully just coincidence that the pitchers have allowed 10 hr over three games. If not he better get his head in the game.

Adrian Gonzalez:
.385 batting average
5 hits over 3 games
1 stolen base

David Ortiz
.333 Batting average
2 Hr (the first two games!)
4 RBI's

Dustin Pedroia
Able to walk and seems to show no ill effect from injury

Take heart Red Sox nation, after starting 0-3, getting outscored 21-6 the 1998 New York Yankees went 114-44 to win the world series

Lets put our ducks in a row before we start worrying about anyone else

I thought this was a funny comic...maybe we should worry about ourselves before other countries?

Sex with one daughter and he gets custody??

This is a news story about a 12 year old dutch girl who gave birth. Although a little sick nothing hugely groundbreaking there, until you read they think it may the father. The father who already did two years for sexual assault on another one of his daughters. The father who won custody from the mother of the little girl. Wait what?? He spend time in prison for sexually assaulting his daughter and then they award him custody of another. Thats like you kid getting eaten by a tiger but you saying hey lets give the tiger another chance and send in your next oldest kid. What?

Hard alcohol at a Red Sox game!? I am in!

While reading today I ran across this article on the Red Sox wanting to expand hard alcohol availability at Fenway. The story itself is rather tame, with the usual things happening. The Red Sox saying yes, the police saying it would be a threat to safety. I understand both stand points on this, although I doubt there would be any visible difference at Fenway if they served hard alcohol. It's not like they limit the amount of beer you drink or anything. To me this would be great because it means I would actually have something to drink at the Sox game.

The thing that really got to me was the comments. There are so many that talk about the fact that hard alochol gives you a different kind of buzz and how it would turn Fenway into less of a family friendly environment. First off alcohol is alcohol, if you drink enough of it you will still get closed. Second of all have these people been to Fenway in the last 10 years? It's been quite a long time since Fenway was a family friendly environment. There are always nasty drunks, slobbery drunks, slutty drunk, clueless drunk and every other kind of drunk at the game. So why not make a little bit more money and let those who can't or don't drink beer partake. I mean the Garden has bars that serve hard alcohol, where is the problem.

This got me thinking and I think I have isolated the problem. Any guesses? Thats right its responsibilities. When you actually read what people are saying its all about the fact that the populace can't be trusted with hard alcohol. Somehow its the alcohols fault? I mean look this is basic personal responsibility. Do you think that people are going to get more drunk because they can buy hard alcohol, they will just buy 5 more beers because they are cheaper and reach the same affect. But that's ok because hard liquor is evil, beer is only kinda bad. Stupid bastards.

So MW and I have an announcement, although I would imagine most who read this already know, but we are expecting a little one in late August! We are both very excited about this and can't wait to meet the lil guy! For those of you who are interested I have decided to start another blog, Pregnancy: The Final Frontier . When I first found out we were expecting I was a little panicky, as most people would be. So I went to the place that always seems to have the answers, the Internet. However this time I was sorely let down by my old buddy, it seemed like everything on the web revolved around the Mom. Now granted the Mom is a huge part of the equation, but so is the Dad. So, in discussion with MW, I have decided to set off on my own to try and give some of the weary/excited/stressed/confused Dads to be an insight into my experiences in pregnancy. Now ladies rest assured this will not be completely geared towards men, for it being geared towards one partner only is the current issue with these blogs and self help places. Pregnancy involves two people, not one as many peoples in-law, friends, strangers may think. So check it out if you want updates on whats happening with MW and I, if you have any questions, or if you are just plain curious on what the heck happens!

Keep in mind that the blog is still under construction, it will get better I promise.

If you break into someones house, you can't call the cops on them

I love this story. In fact its probably one of the great comedies of this generation. In what far away world do you get off calling the police on the owner of the house you just broke into?

I am sorry that you seem to think that law enforcement should prevent him from taking any means necessary to assure that his home is properly guarded.

This is one of the major things wrong with the world today. He broke into another guys house, you don't get to then call the cops because you are afraid he may have a gun. You break in you take the chance you jackass

More to come later....

Last WW1 vet dies....

Last US World War I vet dies....In itself this is a sad statement, but when you think of it from higher up its kind of crazy.

That means there are 0 veterans from the US side of WWI. No one to remember and retell anything of the things that happened then. Then it gets me thinking that WW2 wasn't that much after WW1. WW2 was my generations grandparents, many of whom are still around and kicking today. However it won't be long before we are mourning the passing of the "Great generation". Just kind of makes you think

Really South Dakota...really?!

Are you serious?

The above article is about a bill about to go through the South Dakota house that would make it legal for a family member to kill a doctor who performs an abortion. And they are going to include that in the mercy killing law??

I am not arguing the merits of pro life vs. pro choice in this post (that one can be later). This is a matter of a state trying to make something illegal that they do not have a constitutional right to make legal.

I have two major problems with this legislation (and a host of other problems)

First off Abortion is legal. Under federal mandate, and upheld time and again by the US Supreme Court, abortion is legal. I don't give a damn what your opinion on abortion is, at this moment abortion is legal. It's not a new law, its a law that has been in effect for a while now. As a state South Dakota doesn't have the legal right to make abortion a crime. I mean South Dakota isn't a country, its a state that must follow federal law.

Second off you are going to include this in a mercy killing law? You are going to lump murdering innocent doctors that are doing a legal procedure on adult woman in with someone that kills a gunman in a crowd to protect the public? It's not like abortion doctors ride into town and give all the woman abortions. This is a LEGAL procedure that a woman must seek out and elects to do.

Who the hell do you think you are South Dakota? Let me remind you who you are, you are one of the states in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! I am all for states rights, but this is not a matter of states rights. You are trying to put people in danger by authorizing state run killings of abortion doctors. I'm sorry I thought this was America, not some crazy system where the state thinks they have the rights to kill us citizens that pose no threat to public health or safety. ]

This isn't even addressing all of the other issues that were mentioned in the article, the reading of a pro-life script before anyone is eligible for an abortion, or the fact that planned parenthood has to fly in doctors to one clinic in all of South Dakota. This is just the law point of view.

Washington needs to get off its ass now and slap South Dakota in the head. You don't have the right South Dakota. Your state has twice voted down banning abortion and you are just trying to find a way to discourage abortion. One you are going against the people the voted for you and two you are authorizing hits on law abiding citizens. Instead of worrying about all this foreign shit and Egypt and other countries issues this is what Washington needs to look at. The rights of the US citizen and South Dakota 's police state move to put out hits on US Citizens.

Go fuck yourself South Dakota.

See I told you I would be just took some stupid and an elephant

Hi all!
I told you I would be back and what finally made the writers block go away you ask? Thats right stupid!

The above story is very sad for the trainer, but the line that caught my attention is this
"Edie the African elephant will not be disciplined or punished for an incident that resulted in the death of a handler"

What do you mean disciplined or punished? Its an Elephant, not a 9year old that caught sneaking cookies! What are you going to do to punish it, it lives in a cage for goodness sake. Are you going to beat it or something like that? I mean what the F?

So I am pretty excited to get back into the flow of blogging. This month has really been tough for me to get into the flow. Needless to say the snow falling now and the lack of motivation at work is helping write a bit.

I'm still here I swear!

Ok so I am still here I swear! It's been a very busy beginning of the year and I just haven't gotten around to writing a good solid post yet. We did have a glorious snow storm earlier this week which was fun, but alas my writing mind seems to have frozen with the snow. I will update soon I swear!
