Today I'll finish getting caught up on various stuff that happened while I was away. Here we gooooooooo.....!!!
The sequestration "drama" didn't turn out in the way that the Democrats had hoped - that is, with the GOP handing over even more of our rights and liberties to the Almighty Government. What this whole drama showed is that it wasn't at all about saving this program to save those children or whatever - it was always about stripping away yet another layer from our freedoms.
Remember chums, I was born and raised among this leftist bunch, having an even greater exposure to leftist thinking than a great majority of my generation, because I was raised by uber-leftists; that is, Marxists. (Have I mentioned this before? LOL) I know the thinking of leftists inside and out, and it's not our benefit that they are after - no, instead they're after consolidating power into their greedy little hands. Deep down, they are elitists who think that the vast majority of us are stupid idiots. You can tell this by the kind of humor that they enjoy.
The way the sequestration issue played out was interesting, because no one was fooled by the threats of doom and chaos that would occur if the issue didn't fall in the Democrats' favor. Pardon my french for a second here, but even our group of idiots knew that the whole thing was a load of bullshit. And yet, the Dems kept playing their violins like we were all going to hell in a handbasket if things didn't play out their way. But the deadline came and went, and nothing happened. Have to go comic nerd here, but it reminded me of the ending of Infinity Crusade, in which the Goddess had wished the end of all existence, but discovered that what she - and all of existence - saw was only an illusion of the end of all existence. (Yeah... I love comics). There's too much to explain here about the storyline of IC, so just go buy it. :-P
Anyway, things didn't fall the way that the Dems had hoped, so now they're resorting to canceling stuff like White House tours and this year's tour of the Blue Angels to show the rest of us "Oooo, see.. look what happened because you didn't believe us!" We're still not buying it, but the Dems don't know what else to do, so they're resorting to these pathetic displays. Bleh. I almost feel sorry for them, but they deserve the egg on their collective faces.
Speaking of my generation...
While I was away, I heard that old line once again that my generation (those born mostly in the 1980s) is doomed to be less than the generations before. Friends, that's another line for you to not buy. In fact, I know how to guarantee that we DON'T fall into the self-fulfilling prophecy of being less prosperous than those who came before us. This is going to taste bitter at first, because we have all been raised on the ideological equivalent of junk food all our lives, but if we're going to have any chance of changing things for the better for us all, then this is what my generation has to do: We all have to reject our liberal past and embrace conservatism.
Again, it's going to taste bitter at first, because after eating ideological candy all your life, then being given actual ideological substance is going to taste like boring, bland veggies. But liberalism as it currently stands is a path to fulfilling that prophecy of ineptitude for our generation. However, I have no desire to see us go down that dark path, and I hope those of you who are of my generation feel the same way too. So think about it, guys. Join me. Come to the Right Side.
Here's a link to my previous discussion on my generation, which I named the Worgen Generation.
I got a raise!
Regular readers to my blog know that I hate going to the movies, because I think a lot of them aren't worth the crap that's in the movie theater toilets. I'm of the belief that if we keep patronizing Hollywood for crappy movies, then they won't be motivated to make something better. Add to this the fact that I'm stingy with my money, so it pisses me off royally to go to a movie only to find that it wasn't worth the money I spent on it. This applies even if someone is treating me to the movie. At those times, I feel guilty for them having spent money on me for a crappy movie!
The boss, however, would like me to do more movie reviews, so for my birthday, he gave me a little gift. On top of the usual payments I get with comic books, I now have access to a NetFlix account! For a mere pittance per month, I get to watch as many movies as I want! So be prepared for more movie reviews!
So far I've checked out a few DC animated movies that I didn't even know existed, so it's like Christmas to me all over again. I'm giddy! Okay my little nerdlings, this catches me up for now. Later in the week I plan to discuss current events and other stuff - like comics. See you then!
