The East Metro Epic Rant, 12.26.2012

Regarding the idiotic comments of Wayne Lapierre, executive vice-president of the NRA, all I can say is this: the federal government has no business having anything to do with security for any school with the exception of those in Washington, D.C. No, I think they're probably too busy killing infants and toddlers in the Middle East. I mean...What. The. Fuck? I think this write-up is pretty much on the money: Is the guy drunk, or high? How could he have possibly pissed off both sides of the gun issue with equal effect? I'm thinking crack rocks...or maybe ice? Regardless, he's obviously a bitch-ass mark! Or is he a mark-ass bitch?

And what is with these stupid Hollywood fucks and their little "Demand a Plan" video calling for the Federal government to make everything all better. Oh, is this the same federal government that is killing women and children on a daily basis is countries like Yemen, Pakistan, and Afghanistan? Just to be clear, are we talking about the same federal government that passed NDAA, a law where any American citizen can be disappeared forever without due process? And without beating a dead horse, are we discussing the same federal government that armed drug cartels in Mexico? And...oh wait, I'm sorry, are we talking about the same government that has been waging the War on Drugs for 41 years with such stellar results?

And I get most of the people on this stupid, pathetic video, but Conan O'Brien? Et tu, Conan? Hey, it's your 1st amendment right to have been a part of this thing, and it's my right to never watch you on T.V. again and to unfollow you on FB and Twitter...

It seems as if the whole damn thing is headin' south in a hurry, folks. What else is there to say...don't blame me, I voted Ron Paul?

"Do we really want to live in a world of police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, metal detectors, x-ray scanners and warrantless physical searches? We see this culture in our airports, witness this shabby spectacle of once proud, happy Americans shuffling through long lines while uniformed TSA agents bark orders... The federal government should not try to pursue unobtainable safety with state-approved security precautions... The government has "zero moral authority to legislate against violence." -Dr. Ron Paul

Oh well, such is life. But the rub is this: there is stupid, crazy, and evil all over this world. Always has been and always will be. You can't legislate it, and they don't care about laws, anyhow. It's just the way it is.The sooner people realize this, the better. If you're into faith, I suggest you cling to it, because I don't see it getting any better anytime soon...

Random Bites: 17 December 2012

Well, according to some, the end of the world is only 3 days away, so I figured I should get at least one more post up on the East Metro Blog.

I've been hearing about the weirdness of the Denver Airport for years. According to multiple conspiracy theorists, it is the site of a super-bunker for the power elite if ever "the shit goes downs." But, I've heard from folks that have been there in person, and after seeing this article, I'm starting to wonder...

And in other news relating to the ongoing and continuous trend of POLICE STATE USA, here's this little piece about a misguided town in Arkansas. 

A friend of mine on Facebook, Sean Haugh, recounts his witnessing of the the North Carolina meeting of the Electoral College. Yep, hard to believe, it is already the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December. Happened in every state of the Union and D.C. A really neat read. This is how it's decided...good stuff.

And the CT state police has decided that the 1st amendment does not exist, and that they have the power to go after journalists and bloggers in other states. This is response to some of the conspiracy theories going around? What a joke!  It almost makes you start to wonder...

The best journalist in America? 

A good read in re the social media reaction to the recent tragedy by Charlie Harper, editor of Peach Pundit. 

The UGA Hoop Dawgs are really, really, really bad this year. But...they might get a lot better by the end of the year. Lots of young talent. I hope we can win at least 8 or 9 more games to hopefully save Mark Fox's job for one more year.

One of my favorite Holiday songs. 

Alright, this will probably be it until 2013. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and New Year!
