Today was not a bad day really. Dad picked me up in his new ride and we went to lunch with my nieces. I got a lead about a security guard position at the Rock Island Arsenal today and a friend of mines husband is one of the Sgt’s there. Interview is next Friday and being that I have the Security Forces background, it should go okay. So, back in the day…like 3 years ago I used to do this thing on Youtube called “Things on my Mind”. It was basically a bitch and gripe session with me talking about issues that are going on not only in the US but around the world. Well, instead of making a video, allow me to do a “Things on my Mind”, wordpress edition.
5- What’s the deal with your Guy Fawkes tattoo? The mask actually has a few meaning to it. It originally gained its popularity in V for Vendetta, but then became symbolic for different types of protest. I wanted the words “Ideas are bulletproof” tattooed under the face, but my tattooist said the letters would be too small and wouldn’t like good a few years from now. “Ideas are bulletproof” basically means that no matter how much society or the government tries to silence you, they can never silence your ideas or thoughts.
4-What’s the deal with your “BeLIEve” tattoo? The image is actually a piece of artwork done by Derek Hess who is an awesome artist. I put the beLIEve under it as symbolism. The picture looks like Jesus on the cross (without the cross of course). I was raised catholic and still am to this day, however I don’t practice it. I don’t believe in the bible and I don’t believe you have to go to church or pay towards the church, in order for you to be forgiven or go to heaven. The church says you need to believe in everything it preaches for you to be saved, and I think that’s a lie. I don’t have to go to a building to talk to Jesus, I don’t have to give 10% of my check to the church to talk to Jesus, I don’t have to believe in a book that is used in today’s society as a “Go to heaven for Dummies” book. I believe that women should get abortions, I believe that gays should be able to get married and have children. I believe that priest should be able to get married. I also don’t necessarily believe in hell. I think that if one wants to get into heaven they need to do good and accomplish good during their time on Earth, if not, they get reincarnated. So hell is you having to do all this over again, losing loved ones, being abused, winning the lottery, whatever, but you have to do good this time around or …you get to do it again.
3- Obama. WTF? I voted for President Obama twice. I also voted for Bush and Clinton. Obama is pissing me off something fierce. First, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is freed after we hand over 5 terrorist. Now I know the “we don’t negotiate with terrorist” thing is bullshit. We’ve negotiated with all kinds of terrorist in the past. Reagan did it during the Iran-Contra affair, so again it’s not new. What pisses me off though is that we gave up 5 shitheads that have already vowed to fight against the United States again. I don’t think Bergadahl is the poor little soldier that some are portraying. Second and number 2….
2- Iraq. Iraq get their shit together and now wants the US to come play babysitter again. To fucking bad. I would think different if the Iraq’s were behind us the entire time after we “liberated” them from Saddam, but when Iraq’s started to kill our troops, then screw you and your ugly camel. Now, I’m not dumb, I know the US wasn’t always doing the right thing over there, but when you are doing your fifth deployment in as many years, you are bound to snap. Our guys trained those men to fight for their country, and what happens? These dumbass’s are abandaning thier post or are getting kidnapped then executed. Shoot back you dumbshits. Anyways back to Obama. He stated that we would not send any troops back to Iraq. However today, he states that he will be sending back 300 US military advisors. WTF are these advisors going to tell the insurgents? “fightings bad emkay” Come on man…
1-Fox News is a joke, but CNN isn’t far off with their bullshit breaking news every goddamn half hour. Matter of fact, last night I was changing the channels when I came across CNN Breaking News Special Report, I was like aaah shit…you know what it was? Fucking OJ SIMPSON car chase from 20 goddamn years ago. Really CNN…really? I just sat on my couch with a dumbfounded look on my face. CNN, you really aren’t helping yourselves.
