What's going on?

If you're one of the three people who have been reading this blog for a long time,thank you. You may have noticed that I haven't been posting nearly as much on here within the last year or so. You may be wondering why. To shorten this explanation just know that I've had a lot of craziness happening and being online wasn't exactly a priority. Of course that doesn't mean that I can't stop by and post on here. In fact I'm going to be doing a lot more posting just as a way to brush up on my ability and hopefully get better.

So,why the sudden interest in being back on here again? Well, that comes from the fact that I'm now a college student and for my English course I'm going to have to do a lot of typing anyway. Why not make it more fun? Why not use this as a way to give you and everyone else an insight into my classwork? By that, I mean that I'm going to be posting early drafts of assignments on here to see if they suck or not. It should be fun to get some sort of feedback on where I'm screwing up. Now to answer the questions that someone will inevitably ask me.

What are you trying to get a degree in? Computer information systems

What school are you going to? Currently WCCCD and hopefully somewhere bigger in the future. Maybe somewhere like Wayne State.

What took you so long to do it? A mixture of being poor but being too scared to risk the little money that I had on possibly failing. Of course now I'm still just as poor but I'm way past the end of my rope on being yelled at and verbally abused to only make $7.25 an hour and then have my hours cut.

Anything else you want to tell me? Sure,read the next paragraph.

Outside of finally taking my ass to college and trying to be something in life that may have a chance of owning a home,lots of other important things have been going on around me. By that I mean that my immediate family is about to get a little bit bigger. My little sister is very,very close to having her first child. She's due within the next few weeks and as expected,the entire family is extremely excited. I'm personally happy that the father isn't some random douchenozzle. The guy is actually pretty decent and respectable at a level that's way higher than I was when I was 21. I'm happy for the both of them and I'm pretty excited to be the cool uncle who's gonna immediately teach my niece how to fight. So,that's what's been up with me.

Picture of the Day

It's been 50 years since the historic March On Washington and to say that it had a huge impact on America is a grossly negligent understatement. It may have been one of the most important days in the history of this great country. As many of you may know,there are events all throughout Washington DC this weekend and in to next week commemorating the occasion. I've always wondered how many people from the original march would show up to this event and now I'm kinda closing in on an answer. What I know for sure however is that this man and this sign was,is and will always be relevant to what we should be fighting for in America.

The Air Force is now gay

In recent years,the military has been trying to become more inclusive. By that I mean that don't ask,don't tell came to an end and gay people can be pretty open in the military. This is a good thing because honestly,I wouldn't want a guy who's openly lying because he'd be oppressed if he didn't,in charge of high powered weaponry. I'll let you think about why I wrote that last sentence for a few seconds.

In the air force,the end of don't ask,don't tell means that the guy currently in charge can be as open as he feels comfortable with about his sexuality. Eric Fanning is the new acting civilian leader of the Air Force. This position makes him the highest ranking,openly gay person in the history of the American military. To read more and learn more,click on his pic below.

Poll Position

To say that politics often veers into the lane of ridiculousness is a gross understatement at the very least. A large part of the political process has to do with polling. Polls let us know how voters feel on things ranging from the candidates and their personal opinions to more important issues such as gay marriage,immigration reform and education. In the state of Georgia,the people behind Public Policy Polling put out a hypothetical situation and asked voters who they liked. This hypothetical included civil rights legend and real American hero,Dr Martin Luther King Jr and TV chef,sugar maven,butter aficionado and plantation fetishist Paula Deen.

In a normal world,Dr King would clearly rank highly positive when it comes to how people view him but you and I both know that this post has ridiculousness in it. In reality,in Georgia,among the people who were asked this question who happened to be republican voters,Paula Deen is much more popular than Dr King. In the year 2013, a TV chef who thinks that the wrong side won the war is more popular than a guy who was killed for having the audacity to ask that people of color not be beaten in the streets for wanting to have lunch. This goes to show that we in this country have a very long way to go when it comes to not being idiots.

On a side note Paula Deen's recipes are so-so at best. There are so many better southern cooks.
