Abysmal Explications

"Welcome to: the precipice between groundlessness and flight..."

10/4/08 10:19 am - New Blog

Alright, I finally did it. I said I wouldn't...but I did. (Because I have so much free time.) Check out the new blog space at www.foxunderfire.blogspot.com. It's a little bit lame, I don't really care. It's so that I can keep the politics out of LJ which I will still use for more presonal purposes.

That is all.

9/4/08 07:00 pm - Shitting bulls replace elephants

As the lies and deception conclude tonight with John McCain's speech at the RNC, the Daily Show did a very good job of displaying the hypocrisy of the Republican party.





Last night's speech by Governor Palin, while providing an effective amount of red meat for her base, was just another example of the negative, misleading type of politics that have played out at both party's conventions. I found all the speeches last night to be infuriating but Palin definitely tipped the charts. I decided to take a break this afternoon from the endless "Country First" propaganda but will tune in soon to McCain's speech. I can't wait to see what kind of bull his speech writers have prepared for us tonight.

If this woman is elected to be second in line to rule the free world (aka John McCain drops dead, which, let's be honest, men in their 70s do all the time)...I don't think there's anything left to do other than leave the country.
Just donated to the Obama campaign...which I said I wasn't going to do because I don't have the money to just throw to arrogant politicians....however the prospect of ^^ in the whitehouse....is the scarriest piece of news I have heard in a very very long time.

Criticism by request:

While Sarah Palin is a very charming woman, she is frighteningly unqualified to be the Vice President of the United States. She has been the governor of Alaska for less than two years: a state ranked 48th out of 56th in population with 683,478 people, according to a 2007 census (including US territories) -- smaller than the 16 largest cities in the US.  [http://www.census.gov/]. Governor Palin has an undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Idaho, but her education ends here, as she returned to Alaska to raise a family of five (a very honroable, selfless act) with her high school sweet heart Todd Palin, a commercial fisherman. She is currently under investigation for abusing her power as governor when she fired Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan.[www.wikipedia.org], [Associated Press].

While her lack of experience and qualification are hard to dispute, my personal bias toward her positions on oil drilling in the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge, her desire to repeal Roe v. Wade, teach creationism in public schools, opposition to same-sex marriage, lifelong membership to the NRA, and support of the death penalty, must be noted. These are not things I support, and are reasons why I am voting for Obama. [www.ontheissuses.org]

Picking Sarah Palin as McCain's VP is a risky yet brilliant move by the McCain campaign strategists, most likely including Carl Rove, the man who brought us eight disasterous years of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.  It is designed to draw in Democrats upset over Hilary Clinton's defeat and challenge the Democrats' historic primary season by making Governor Palin the first female Vice Presidential nominee. Last night Barack Obama oficially accepted the Democratic nomination becomming the first African American man chosen to be the Presidential nominee in history. Hilary Clinton also recieved more votes in the Primary race than any other woman in history. [www.cnn.com].

While I congratulate Senator McCain's campaign for it's progressive and unexpected nomination of a woman, I am strongly disappointed in their choice of this particular woman. She does not have the educational background or experience to take on the responsibility of being second in line as our next Commander in Chief. This was clearly a manipulative move by a party desperate to regain standing in one of the most important elections of American history.

It's almost 2008. This will be a good year. I've decided. Any objections? No? Good. 
P.S. I Love You...made me cry. For like 2 hours. I'm so done with that. 
I saw this on a blog and it amused me so I'm passing it on.

12/17/07 11:30 am - Ahh Relaxation

It's a truism that people are complicated, multifaceted, contradictory, surprising, but it takes the advent of war or other momentous events to be able to see it. It is the most fascinating and the most dreadful of spectacles, the most dreadful beacuse it's so real; you can never pride yourself on truly knowing the sea unless you've seen it both calm and in a storm. Only the person who has observed men and women at times like this can be said to know them. And to know themselves.

Like a mouse in a cage
Getting nowhere but I'm trying
Forging ahead
But I'm stuck in the bed...
 

"Whisper" A Fine Frenzy

Yes that was me this morning. But I got out of bed when I was late. And then it was raining and cold. My key got stuck in the door and it wouldn't come out until it felt like it. 

But classes are pretty much over. (Which also means that it's almost finals, but I'm not thinking about that right now). I'm almost done with all my papers and then I pretty much have to study my ass off. And then I can go home. 9 Days.

My hair is pretty gross right now but I don't want to take a shower because it's always cold in the bathroom. 

Umm I actually didn't have anything to say.

11/24/07 03:55 pm - There must be some kind of way out of here...

Said the joker to the thief
Theres too much confusion
I cant get no relief

- Jimi Hendrix "All Along The Watchtower"

And days go by...
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by...
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin' right now
'Cause days go by...

Out on the roof just the other night
I watched the world flash by,
Headlights, taillights,
Running through a river of neon signs.
Mmm-hmmm...
But somewhere in the rush I felt,
We're losing ourselves...

We think about tomorrow then it slips away.
We talk about forever but we've only got today..

-Keith Urban "Days Go By"

I hope everyone is having a nice Thanksgiving break. Mine started off a lot better than it's ending. Despite that, I definitely do not want to go back to Davis. I can actually sleep here. It's nice. I saw August Rush yesterday. It kind of just reminded me of all the things I want that I don't have. Oh well. 3 more weeks until finals are over. I don't really want to think about those. But then I can come home for longer than 5 days. I miss my friends. I wanted to see them so much. But...history has a way of repeating itself. 

I'm sorry I didn't sound more excited on the phone
I'm sorry that after all these years
I've left you feeling unrequited and alone, brought you to tears
I guess I never loved you quite as well as the way you loved me
I guess I'll never really be able to tell you how sorry
I am

-Ani DiFranco "Sorry I Am"
