O-Blog-Ma (I'm Clever. F-Off!)

I don't know how to start this post, so I'll just get right in to it.

I'm very pleased that Obama will be the next president of the United States.
My reasons are different than are many. There are so many out there that I'm sure voted for Obama due to his race and/or to take part in history. I decided to vote for him because I think he was the candidate that will be most likely to bring our nation to where it needs to be. Its time to progress.
I'm 23 years old and I have a son and he just turn 4 years old. My future is very important to me. No one knows how long I'll live, but statistically I may have another 23 years to go. The point I'm going for is that there is hopefully more future ahead of me than there is past behind me and I believe that the things McCain represented would have slowed our progression as a nation at best.
As I said, I also have a son that is only 4 years old. I think about his future far more than my own. At this point in my life, I would like to maybe move to Japan for a few years or months to teach or maybe move to another area in the United States with a better economy where I could also enroll in a good wrestling school. I don't do these things because my son is far too important to me. I could easily still do either of these things. Legally, I'm only obliged to pay child support. I just love my son far too much to not see him as often as possible so I have chosen an alternate route.
Instead of moving to Japan, I'm learning the language and saving money in order to travel there for a few weeks in the upcoming years. Instead of moving to another place, I'm looking for the best job that I can here and cutting costs where I can in order to have a place to live and to survive. I'm also willing to wait until I can find a new job so that I can go to wrestling school 3 hours away every week.

I'm sacrificing my wants for my son's future while not giving up on my own. I'm thinking of right here and now but keeping a sharp eye on many years down the road. I think Obama is our best shot at giving us what we need for the future.

I am a Libertarian. If there was a party that I identified most with, that would be it. I was a big Ron Paul backer and still support the hell out of him.

I disagree with some people in my general line of thought in multiple areas.

We will start with health care.
I can not afford health care. I am currently unemployed but that's not the reason. I have never in my adult life had health insurance. There was a time when I was on three medications while on my father's insurance but after some time, I moved to a different area in the state and was too old to be on his insurance so I had two options: Pay over $400 a month for them or stop taking them. I had to get off of two of them and pay out of pocket for the one that I could not get off of.
So for a year or two, I spent over a hundred a month on this one medication until I was forced to stop taking that in order to move out of the cheap, though dangerous and mold-taken apartment I was living in.

I stopped taking that medication over two years ago now and I still feel the effects. The coming off it it 'cold turkey' caused 'brain tremors' for months that essentially made me feel as though I was about to faint if I so much as moved my eyes. Even now, every waking moment feels unreal. I feel as if I'm dreaming or half-asleep and I never remember the things that I do. In fact, I can hardly remember anything. I fault having to come off of the medication due to financial reasons for these things.
I was unable to go to the doctor to be stepped off the medication as is recommended because a doctor's visit is VERY expensive and if I had that sort of money, I'd have just bought more medications.

As it stands right now, I have many concerns for my health. I can't get anything looked at, though, because I can't afford it! As I have told so many people in the past: If I had cancer right now, I wouldn't know it. And if I did know it, I'd have to just plan for my short future because I could never afford treatment.
Its times like this that I need government help. I can't get it. If I were to go out and lose my leg or something I'd be all set. But as it stands right now, the government wouldn't consider me for a second for any of their medical programs. I NEED HELP!
Someone that I consider to be a good friend said that the response of many would be that if I were to better myself and get a better job then I could afford it... Right. I graduated from one of the 'Corridor of Shame' high schools. I actually learned a lot more in high school than my grades would reflect, but the point is that the methods they used for teaching and therefore grading are not successful. Therefore my chances of a scholarship are virtually non-existent. And if they were and I got approved, I'm a dad that hardly got by as it is on the low amount I made when I WAS actually employed. Where the hell am I able to fit in school? I have no safe-guards. I don't have rich parents that can support me if I slip or stumble. I am on my own, essentially.

So health care is just one example I'm going to give here. To give others would simply take too long. I'll continue...

I think I know what McCain lost the election.

John McCain showed bits and pieces of the OLD McCain from 2000 that I used to support. That side was pretty clearly seen during his concession speech. I don't think McCain wanted things to go so negative. I think his advisers told him what to do to win and they attempted to put the negativity out there with their groups and Palin while McCain himself tried to play it nicer when it came to his own words. I think that sent confusing signals and that people were looking for more of the old McCain that his advisers denied us and many people were turned off by it.

Obama won due to a few factors.
Race was an important factor. My fear is that too many voted for him because of his race. Obama is bi-racial (and not black as so many are calling him). That's a big step for this nation. I'm very proud to witness it.
Before I continue, I'd like to point out that you will not see my refer to Obama or anyone else as 'African-American'. Its not a matter of disrespect or anything. Its just that I was taught that if you live here, are a citizen, and are proud, you are an American. I don't label myself European-American, Scotch-Irish-English-American, or any other classification. I am an American.

He also won because his campaign was nearly flawless. He kept it positive. Be got on his supporters for booing McCain at a rally. He didn't try to drive a massive wedge between the parties. It was just incredible and I hope its the future of campaigning.

Apart from all of the changes I hope he can bring with government, I think Obama may be a great role-model for kids. As I heard one guy say on NPR, kids won't be looking up to rappers, sports stars, and criminals saying "I could be that!". They'll be looking at the leader of the free world and say "I can be that. Obama has crossed that line for me so that in the future, my race wouldn't be a stumbling block." It thrills me to no end.
I was raised around black and white people. The majority of my schoolmates were black and we all got along. There were racial tensions elsewhere (I was raised in South Carolina after all) but I has just as many close black friends as white.
One thing that would annoy me is some that were perhaps not my friends. There were a lot of wannabe 'gangsta' types, drug dealers (I'm not stereotyping. They were pretty honest about it), petty criminals, etc. I was nice to all people until they caused me to change that (which happened maybe twice all together) and considered even those 'bad eggs' casual friends at worst. I would get angry, though, during the times in which our studies would touch on the Civil Rights figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, and the like. They would claim to love these people and the rights they fought for and believed in, but the reality is that they would be embarrassed.
Martin Luther King, Jr. would be ENRAGED at hip-hop culture. Its degrading to the race and culture that I love (meaning, of course, the black culture). Anything that's not bettering one's self would have him livid. He fought and died so that black people (although he fought for ALL people) in the United States could better themselves and be truly equal yet so many waste it and it makes me sad.
I've never said much of it because I was afraid of being labeled racist but nothing could be farther from the truth. I'm one of few people that I know that has no shred of hate for people. The only real difference from white and black people are skin pigments. We're all human and made the same.
What I do hate about race is people who try to use it to separate us. I don't care what color you are, but if you are using your race or someone else's race to draw differences or contrasts between us, then you have A LOT you need to learn. That's not going to help.

Barrack Obama is going to be my president. Barrack Obama is going to be YOUR president. Barrack Obama is going to be OUR president. It doesn't matter if you're black, white, Hispanic, Asian, short, tall, fat, skinny, sickly, mentally ill, smelly, Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, a doctor, a McDonald's employee, or even a Yeti. If you're an American citizen, BARRACK OBAMA IS GOING TO BE YOUR PRESIDENT!
Unlike others, he has no desire to separate us. He wants us to join together. He wants to unite us. LET HIM! The worse that can happen is that you won't like what he does. If that's the case, don't vote for him in 2012. Spread the word of why you don't like him. Just give him a chance. I was against Bush from the start but I gave him a chance. He had time to change my mind but he didn't. Hell, I was against Clinton! He won me over. He changed a lot of my views and opinions on politic.

I'm not trying to sell anyone on Obama, his views, his plans, or anything else. I'm just here to say that this is a HUGE step because of what he represents and the hope he gives people, not because he's not white.
Give him a chance. The bigots out there never will. Their minds aren't big enough to consider anything that's different from the hate they know. They're losing their numbers, though. I live in the deep South and I can't come up with more than 5 purely open racists that I know. That may not seem like much, but if you knew my home town you'd be amazed.

There's more I have to say on this topic, but this blog's long enough as it stands now. I may come back and add more at another time. Just keep an eye on me.

Also, its been some time since I've posted so keep an eye out and I'll be posting about Ray Stevens, pro wrestling, my jobless situation, my recent investigation with SPIRIT ( at Wedgefield Plantation in Georgetown, SC and the publicity that came with it, and a whole lot more. Keep checking on me, folks!

Danger! Danger Will Prynciton!

I've been planning on posting in the next few days anyway, but based on what occur ed earlier tonight, I decided to go ahead and do it now about the occurrence in question.

This is the hotel log book entry as I typed it at my place of employment. Instead of re-writing it I figured I would just copy and paste it as it is. I will be editing names, places, locations and room numbers though.

"At about midnight while I was trying to handle an issue with rooms ### and ###, a guy came running in the office yelling and screaming for me to call the police and running about as though it was serious. I told him they'd need to know what was up before they'd come and he just kept screaming "Call 9-1-1, yo! Call the police!".

He picked up the plastic plant in the lobby and headed towards the door with it and when I yelled for him to put it down and tell me why I was calling the police, he told me that someone had just pulled a pistol on him and said he'd kill him. I called 9-1-1 and before they'd send someone, they wanted to know much more information than the guy had given. They wanted to know descriptions and the whole story but all the while everyone else (himself included, obviously) were more concerned about the prospect of someone coming for him with a gun as he had said they were. He spoke to the police and I went to the back office door to let my co-worker in (she'd been out to tell a room about something since their phone wasn't working) as he continued to pace about looking out the glass front area of the lobby to the street.

Some time shortly before he got on the phone with the police, the three ladies from the two rooms mentioned above went into the lobby bathroom and locked themselves in it and we saw a smaller guy (he honestly looked to be 12-14 years old) walk in front of the hotel and point to the guy and yell to someone on the street or sidewalk that was South of the hotel.

I briefed my co-worker on the situation as I understood it and told her there were issues with the above rooms and told her they'd locked themselves in the bathroom. She misunderstood and thought I meant the people after the guy, but as I explained she went back towards the counter and began telling the guy he had to leave. He kept saying "I can't leave or he's gonna get me! That ain't right!". my co-worker told him that she was going to call the police on him if he didn't calm down or leave.

At that time, I guess he saw someone coming towards the hotel or the door because at that moment, he leaned on the counter and jumped over it as both of us are yelling at him to get back on the other side. He said he wasn't going to and started picking up objects (a 'Caution Wet Floor' sign, etc.) to use in self-defense I suppose. My co-worker then got on the phone with the police and took cover underneath the counter/drawer on the left side of the desk and I went to the back near the circuit breaker box when I heard someone opening the door. They had her asking him such things as "Does the guy in the office have a weapon?", etc. The sort of stuff we had no way of knowing for sure and we cared even less since out concern was more so that they just get here and deal with the situation.

He was in the area behind the desk, sort of between the desk area and the area I was in and he was asking me what he needed to do and I told him he needed to leave and pointed to the back door behind him. He kept saying that it wasn't right to make him leave with people after him and I tried explaining that because of whatever he had done, he was now putting people that had done nothing in danger as well as himself by being in our office. He said "Give me a stick or something I can use and I'll go out there. What am I gonna do?" to which I told him I had no stick. I was standing near a broom which he saw and started screwing the head off of and asked me if the police would get him for having that outside. I told him I had no idea and that all I knew was he had to leave.

At about the same time (I can't recall at which specific time or exact sequence, but it was when I was at least partially near the desk and in view of the door), a woman came into the lobby yelling that they were gonna get him, etc. for hitting her brother with a rock or jumping him or something. Then a guy came in yelling "Imma fucking kill you if I see you! If I see you ever again Imma fuckin' kill you! You gonna die!" etc. I thought he left but I'm not sure because shortly after I heard the door open again and he yelled "BOOM!" and laughed. I think he left at that point because the guy in the office chilled a bit more and after just a minute or so he was willing to go back across the counter and actually went just outside the door as the police were coming up.

After the cops arrived, the women came out of the bathroom and were terrified but much less angry about their room issues and both decided to stay though we offered both reservations a full refund with no penalty if they wanted to cancel.

A bit later, one of the officers came in to update me on the situation and told me that they had pulled over the car the people were in (one of the women in the office saw it was gold in color) and were checking it out. They told me that the guy who came in here lived at the sister property across the street with his girlfriend and he told them that he got into it with one of the people earlier and they got a carload of people and saw him walking and they were going to get him at that point. They said the guy didn't actually see a gun but instead assumed its existence due to the actions of the people and their threats. They told me that the area of about 4 blocks between the sister property and the property a few blocks up were essentially a 'high tension' area at the moment due to the situation. He said he would update me later before they left but he never did. Also, I forgot to find out what room at sister property his girlfriend lived in because they obviously need an eye kept on them at the very least.

I covered everything I can remember at the moment (my memory is crap sometimes anyways) here but if there are more questions feel free to get in touch with myself or my co-worker (I told her I'd do it since she was here way past her scheduled time anyway)."

So that's how I started my night at work. I'm honestly getting really sick of the lack or protection we have here. If the guy that hopped the counter would have intended to harm or rob us and DID have a weapon, we'd have been helpless. I didn't think he intended to do anyone harm and could tell he was really terrified so I wasn't concerned about him. But that isn't my point. The point is that employees have been physically attacked and harmed by customers in the past and no precautions have been taken to protect us, dangerous as the area may be at times.
Or, for example, if the guy who he thought had a gun DID have one, if he shot at anyone from the door area, he wouldn't have been picked up clearly on our surveillance camera. His face would have no-doubt been unseen.

Shit happens. The world is dangerous. I know all of that. I'm not the only one who knows that, though. I just think it'd be nice to have my safety taken into concern sometimes (and I can assure you it isn't). I've been told to go out on property in the middle of the night with no one else here to take care of security issues but I don't because of the lack of safety. In no way is that a smart idea. Yet I've been told its something I have to do.

If you are reading this and are in charge of people, make sure they're not in needless danger. Why the hell would you? I believe that every life is incredibly important and just because someone is an employee of yours doesn't make their life less meaningful (hell, it may be far more important!).

Alright, rant/post/update/log over. Just wanted to document some insanity.

No Time For Love, Dr. Prynce

I went to see when I posted my last blog post just out of curiosity and I realized how many posts I've started and never finished. One day there's gonna be a huge post comprised of all of the blog posts that never got published. That'll mean that it will be an ungodly length (even compared to my other posts) and the entire world will hate me all at once.

I've gotta start getting back to my old style of blogging. I like it better. I dunno what the difference is, but my older posts are better. Now they're too... Bloggy. Too mater of fact. I don't think I like it.

I ordered 250 'free' business cards online earlier. I don't have a business. In no way do I need business cards. But for like $5 for shipping, I hopped on those bitches like they were immune to disease.

I don't like work. I like to work but that's where it ends. Most of the good people and the people I considered friends are gone. There's some good people still here, but they're less and less all the time so it makes all the bullshit from the 'uppers' less manageable.

Ginger ale. Delicious.

I met Kurt Angle and Rhino a couple of days ago. Pictures are coming soon, fa-sho.

All of my paragraphs on my blog posts start with "I" and I don't like it. Bleh.

So I didn't really have time to blog right now so its silly that I chose to do it.

But what-ever, bitches. Fuck you anyways.

Damn them Doobies and they Chinese Grove...

I'm so tired right now. That's almost exclusively my reason for posting.

I'm actually sipping coffee as I write this post. While I normally take in a fair amount of caffiene in any one day, I can't recall the last time I had a cup of coffee. I think I had a cup back in April... I dunno.

So as I'm sitting here, I get off of work at 7AM only to have to come back at 4PM. That'd be bad under normal circumstances but I've lost so much sleep in the last two days that I'm afraid I'll pass out at some point. I went fishing the past two mornings which ended up getting me less than or right aroun 5 hours of sleep each night. If I'd be sleeping well the past week or so that'd be fine but my schedule hasn't allowed it.

Ok so that's enough about my sleeplessness...

Someone asked me today if I'd played some drinking game before... Drinking games. How fucking stupid are they?
For one, I'm not a big drinker. My life isn't fantastic but I think you have to be a very shallow person to drink regularly. I feel awesome when I'm drunk, but I'm not myself then. In some ways I'm more like I'd rather be, but the fact is that I'd rather be my faulted self.
Secondly, if you want to drink then drink. If you want to get drunk then get drunk. Why BS around with it? The only purpose of them is to get drunk. Do people play drinking games because they don't know how to pace their alcohol intake? Or is it just to force themselves into being more social and making themselves seem less miserable with their lives by pretending to not want to get smashed and escape their misery?
I fully believe that if you're drunk more than once a month then you're trying to escape something in reality that you're not too fond of. I'm basing this on my feelings during my deepest depressive periods and from what people have confided in me. I do not believe for a second that people are 'just being young and crazy' or any of that. Its bullshit.

I'm watching the 'Chalkie Trouble' episode of "The Squidbillies"... Funny shit.

My co-worker earlier tonight had a toothache. She decided at some point to do a version of the old crushed asprin right on the tooth remedy, only she decided to use Alieve. All of this was unknown to me until I hear what sounds like painful gagging and possible vomitting from the back. It turns out that there's something in Alieve that causes intense pain for some reason when crushed and applied to an area in the mouth. For like the next hour she was trying to get the feeling out of her mouth while it sounded as though she was hacking up a lung.
So... Think about that next time you take an Alieve. Something in those things hurt her mouth badly. Kind of makes you wonder what it does to your stomach!

Alright, I'm starting to drag ass mentally worse than before so I should just stop while I'm less far behind (though in no way ahead!).

Keep up with me easier, though, with Twitter. or with this nifty button (which will be posted on my side bars soon):

    follow me on Twitter

    We Fight with Jazzzzz!

    Whoa! So its been a while, huh?

    A lot's been going down and I don't know where to begin so I'll just throw out random thoughts.

    I'm starting to question myself. I'm not a fan of John Cena but I'm starting to respect him. He does every WWE house show (it seems), does tons of publicity, and HAS talent. My only thing is his character was stale a few years ago.
    He's a great performer, though. When you see him in a WWE ring, it doesn't seem to be the case but I've seen footage of him training to get into the business (in the same class as Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, and Kaz!) and he was the star of the class by far!
    My point is, crap on him for his character and crap on WWE for the skills he doesn't show. But know that he does have talent hidden under all the bullshit.

    I've been doing a lot of blue crab fishing lately. Its pretty fun, though I've yet to find a good spot for it that'll net a lot of crab for me. Its actually an incredibly cheap hobby, too. The only thing I've spent a lot of money on is gas.

    I went to see The Kottonmouth Kings again a few days ago. I didn't get to see too much of them because there was at least a 20-25 minute break between each of the 4 bands to play. Dirtball was good. Insolence was also good. The Expendables sucked. The singer ruined the band and it is unfortunate.

    Speaking of concerts, I have tickets to see Modest Mouse in a few weeks! I have a fear that it could be pretty bad, though. I don't really like their newer stuff and they seem to be going in such a direction that's the exact opposite of what I like from them. I'll hope for the best, though.

    Was I the only one who was absolutely stunned to find out about Tim Russert's death? I went in to work for second shift and was astounded to see the news!

    I'm exhausted. I haven't had more than about 5 hours of sleep in over a week. And most of the sleep I have got was disrupted by one thing or another. It isn't fun. But today I intend to go hang out with my son when I get off of work. I'll keep him for a few hours (although I'm currently so tired I may just stop in for a bit and actually pick him up tomorrow instead). After that I intend to sleep until at least 7PM but we'll see. Its Wednesday so 'GhostHunters' will be on all day and I'm likely to get up and watch it. That should be fine, though, as I seriously do not intend to do shit all night tonight.

    I REALLY want to see 'The Dark Knight'!

    I may have a new job. Its better money in what I'm hoping is a better environment but its always a gamble. If they're willing to give me Sundays off, though, I'm there. For 15% more money and the ability to pursue my dream, I'd be willing to go through the needed adjustment.

    Anywho, I need to get going to email someone about the aforementioned job so, later folks!

    They could not take your Pride

    I haven't posted lately. I've simply been too busy. I hope to be able to find time to do so again soon but until then, I just wanted to do a post very similar to the one I did three years ago today.

    Today is 40 years since the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I know his name has been misused and bastardized by people including but, certainly not limited to Jesse Jackson, but what he thought, did, felt, and fought for were all amazing things that changed the world.
    More so, they could still change the world. I see people all the time who like to claim he's their hero yet he would be disgusted to see them. There's an episode of the TV show The Boondocks that shows how Dr. King would likely feel about culture today. Watch it. Its much more meaningful than you'd expect.

    As I did three years ago today, I can only commemorate this in a small way by living a life I think he'd appreciate, making note of his existence, and posting the following song (yet again).

    Read it. Enjoy it. Listen to it.

    ...Though Bono is the biggest turd in the universe. Bono want some biddy?

    High Class Idiocy

    Spitzer got caught with a whore.
    The only reason I mention this is because; A) People seemed shocked, B) The terminology people use in discussing the matter.

    A)- Has it really not been proven that if someone seems out to get or totally against something that they tend to be fore it? Foley was all about protecting kids, yet he found himself coming on to them. Limbaugh hated drug addicts only to reveal that he IS one. Its not a shock, folks!
    Its just like crooked cops. They say they're against crime and commit them every day.
    Its also similar to homophobes. I know people like to say that not all homophobes are secretly gay but I think many of them are. The ones that aren't are afraid they may be which is why they don't want to be confronted with homosexuality in case they're aroused by it. That isn't always the case and its unfair and ignorant for me to say that it is. I just have to say that I've seen it happen, folks.
    I used to work with a guy a few years ago who was your typical Southern homophobe. He fained disgust when he found that one of our properties has a large gay group in house for a week during the summer and though I was technically the security guy at that property, for that week he decided it was best that he work here.
    Stuff happened in between his first day and him demanding to work the property with the group that made him more comfortable but he was still homophobic. He just allowed himself to be around them without freaking out.
    Long-story-short, last I heard of him he was good friends with, constantly in contact with, and actually staying for long periods of time at the house of the leader of the aforementioned group.

    B) - No one will just say that Spitzer was with a whore. Its always that he was with 'high class' prostitutes or 'high dollar' hookers... Always something and always with the word 'high' in it.
    Simply put, he was with a whore. A hot whore but a whore nonetheless and I don't understand why we can't just state it that way. Why can't people in this country just stop being so pretentious and stupid?

    Also worth noting, the bitch can't sing which means she'll be HUGE on the pop music scene.

    Michigan and Florida- I have to ask you Democrats of these states to redirect your anger. So many of you are angry at the DNC for not allowing you to seat delegates at the National Convention and it isn't their fault. You should be angry at the Democratic part leaders in your respective states as they are the ones who decided to move the primaries up in your states knowing very well that it could lead to such a form of reprimand from the DNC.
    Did you protest to your state party leaders prior to the primaries to get them to not move up their dates? They knew well before the primary elections were held that they would be punished by not having delegates seated at the convention due to it. Why did you not try to get it changed before your state blew millions of your dollars on a meaningless primary election?
    So now you guys want to hold another election because apparently the DNC isn't going to stick by their 'punishment' if you continue to gripe. That's like the parent that decides to ground a child for a week out of anger and good judgement but as time carries on, they get sick of the child moping about and being in their hair so they say, "Fine! Its only been two days but you're not grounded anymore!" It shows that there are no true consequences to your actions and therefore no reason to follow the rules.
    Its also true that in holding another election, that would show brainless spending that the far right like to accuse all Democrats of being guilty of. Both states spent millions for the first one and now they'd like to spend a few million more. The world knows that the economy in Michigan is garbage even compared to the presently recessing economy that's plaguing the nation. Why would state party officials think that blowing even more of the much-needed money of the state of Michigan.

    I've got other stuff to say but I'll get to that in another post. These two things have just been eating at me for a while now.
    I may put an update or two to this one so... Look for it.

    The Savage Leap

    I'm posting right now and in a rush due to no reason other than its Leap Day. I had an idea yesterday that I should post today because of that reason and because I hadn't posted in some time but I quickly squashed it as pretty unimportant.
    Then just a few hours later, I spoke to Rob and he said I should blog today and that he was going to so it since its the only time in four years that it'd be possible to post on this date.

    So here I am posting and I can't come up with much to say.

    I dislike Michael Savage. He's a hypocritical douche bag. That's not news and I understand that but I thought I'd post about it while its fresh on my mind.
    I was listening to Clark Howard but after his show went off, I left the radio for a few minutes after and Savage came on. He was saying how Liberals wanted to take tax dollars to give people free health care because they don't take care of their own bodies by not eating right and its their own fault and responsibilities to take care of themselves.
    First off, I've been plenty poor for a long time. I LOVE healthy foods and prefer steamed broccoli and lean baked chicken to Totinos Crisp Crust Pizzas, but for under a dollar I can get the more unhealthy choice which could feed me for a week (one a day) for about $7. For lean and skinless/boneless chicken with fresh broccoli, that's probably $20 at least. I have no health care because I can't afford it. Between $75 a week of child support, rent, car insurance, and $3+ a gallon for gas, I eat crappy foods because that's all I can afford.
    I've been in the stereotypical situation where I had three things I was in dire need of and had to choose only two of them to be able to have while having to do away with the other. I chose to give up all 3 of the medications I was on because I couldn't have my medications AND a place to live and food to eat. After giving up my medication, I was still stuck on having to eat Bologna and Ramen noodles for months.
    Things have now improved for me but I'm still not to the point where I can afford health. Its unfortunate because eating healthy and going to the gym almost daily makes me feel GREAT and I prefer it.

    What I was going for, though, is that Savage went on to say that its dumb to try to get everyone health care when rich people (I forgot which line he was referring to) are losing their jobs and are now flat broke.
    ...This is the same man that I heard no more than a week ago preaching about how if you're poor its your own fault and you need to be doing something to not be poor.

    He's a hypocrite. He's an idiot. He's a liar. He's a talk-radio host.

    F(uck)OX 'News'

    I changed this name of this blog some years ago from 'Hibbity Bibbity' to 'Eve of Destruction' for a reason. I was pissed. I still am pissed. Sometimes I just forget how pissed and at how many people.

    Rupert Murdoch is a piece of garbage. When I see that he's now still alive at the age of 76 I begin to believe the old saying "The good die young".
    Murdoch controls so much of the American and international media that its just flat out crazy.
    Murdoch is a hard-lined Conservative. Not the tax cutting, make sure everyone has liberties, protect the Constitution kind of Conservative... Rather he's the 'let them see only what I want them to see', 'deceive, lie, etc. to get to my agenda' kind of guy.
    The thing about him essentially owning the international media is the lies, propaganda and bias that he force-feeds the gullible minds of the US and the world under the guise of 'fair and balanced' news.

    Although he's the #1 mogul in news today, all you hear about from his cronies in DC and the (Murdoch-controlled) press is how the media has such a weighty liberal bias.

    Fuck you, Murdoch. Fuck you. Fuck Faux(Fox) News. Fuck the crazy people who watch FNC and think they're getting a single ounce of actual NEWS (while it isn't your fault for being gullible, its your fault for not seeking alternate views).
    Between all of Murdoch's outlets and Clear Channel, where is there even any room for a liberal bias?

    I know that every one's saying that CNN and all things formerly owned by Ted Turner are the massively left-spinning outlets but come on... CNN isn't a very good source of news or of anything that matters, either. Don't get me wrong there. You have to admit, however, that there's no true comparison when it comes down to it.
    CNN does lean to the left. There is no denying it. At least they do have a degree of fairness in most cases, though. FNC has Colmes. That's about it.

    Anywho, the reason Murdoch's on my mind today is because of a documentary I watched. Its called Outfoxed and I certainly recommend it.
    It basically taught me very little I didn't already know about Murdoch and FNC but its a nice and condensed version of reality. I know the film's also a little biased as well but you cats should check it out.

    I started out by mentioning the title of my blog. It comes from a 60's protest song that just hit me SO hard when I heard it for the first time. They are as follows (please read them):

    Eve of Destruction - Barry McGuire
    The eastern world it is explodin',
    Violence flarin', bullets loadin',
    You're old enough to kill but not for votin',
    You don't believe in war, what's that gun you're totin',
    And even the Jordan river has bodies floatin',
    But you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
    Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

    Don't you understand, what I'm trying to say?
    Can't you feel the fears that I'm feeling today?
    If the button is pushed, there's no running away,
    There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave,
    Take a look around you, boy, it's bound to scare you, boy,
    And you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
    Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

    Yeah, my blood's so mad, feels like coagulatin',
    I'm sittin' here, just contemplatin',
    I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation,
    Handful of Senators don't pass legislation,
    And marches alone can't bring integration,
    When human respect is disintegratin',
    This whole crazy world is just too frustratin',
    And you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
    Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

    Think of all the hate there is in Red China!
    Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama!
    Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space,
    But when your return, it's the same old place,
    The poundin' of the drums, the pride and disgrace,
    You can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace,
    Hate your next-door-neighbour, but don't forget to say grace,
    And you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend,
    you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.
    you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

    It was about Vietnam but it is still very relevant today.

    At any rate, I'm out of time now so I'll wrap this up. I intended to only spend a short amount of time on Rupert Murdoch but... That didn't happen.


    I have some other stuff coming up though so stay tuned.
