Things on my mind. 12/29/15

Well hopefully everyone had a good Christmas.  I’m not one that enjoys Christmas time.  Not for religious reasons, just because I’m not a fan of all the festive crap.  I think as you get older, Christmas time is more of a hassle anyways. Should i get this person this, will this person like this gift, should i get them a gift card or just money? It’s a pain in the ass really.

This weather sucks right now.  No snow for Christmas and it was around 40 degrees which is awesome.  Then, out of nowhere we get ice and snow for the past two days.  Can’t really complain though, New Mexico and Texas got hit with snow, earthquakes and tornadoes.  Someone pissed god off.

I was able to see the Stanley Cup a few months ago at the Blackhawks convention.  Of course while I was there, I had to kiss it.  I mean really, when would be the next time I would be able to see and touch such a kick ass trophy? Well that question was answered this past weekend when I was able to get my picture taken twice with it at different locations.  Yeah, I was cheesy and I didn’t give a fk. 10274283_10153766376394326_4426074061033183562_n

CNN wrote some bullshit news story about Rob Kardashian going to the hospital for diabetes.  I commented “I have diabetes too. I must have missed that report CNN ran for me.”  2 hours later, its up to 600 likes.  Guess I made a few people laugh.  I’m tired of seeing stupid ass stories like this on a “news” channel. I find myself watching Fox now more then ever simply because they don’t air stupid shit like this.  I always thought of Fox News as the old white guy racist channel. But honestly, after watching it for awhile, it’s not bad.  The one thing I will say about CNN, they love to act as a race bait.

Black Lives Matter.  This damn group is going about their protest the wrong way.  I’m all for people protesting, it’s our right. But when you are protesting, even peacefully, you can still do more harm then good.  Perfect example.  If you’re going to protest BLM and you are shutting down a highway, freeway or streets, the only thing you’re doing is building more animosity.  People want to get to work, people need to pick up their kids, people need to get to the hospital.  If my family member is on their death bed, with only a few hours to live and i’m stuck on a freeway due to your protest, I’m going to be anti whatever organization you’re with.  On the opposite side of the coin.  Why, as a driver, do you stop?  That question alone reminds me of Reginald Denny.  You’re in this big ass semi and you stop?  What good could come from that?  Bet when he was getting that brick against his head, he was thinking…why did i stop?  I will say that i find it funny that the same people who counter the Black Lives Matter by saying All Lives Matter, are the first ones who say no to having refugees in the US.

2016 is two days away.  Normally this is when I would think about a new years resolution.  This year is different though.  I think that this is going to be the year of Health.  As of right now, i’m a 36 year old guy in a 97 year old body.  I know that i have to take better care of my body before it’s too late.  Being a diabetic, I don’t want to lose my legs or my eyes.  I don’t want my wife to have to put my pic in the obituary before i turn 40.  I’m just going to take it one day at a time.

Whitney Houston is coming up on her 4 year sober anniversary.

1. Finally found a job.  Where at? I’m not saying lol  The reason why I would get in trouble with my other job is because they kept reading some of the things i would put on here.  So yeah, not mentioning it. I will say that it is in loss prevention and that the money is not too bad.  They actually gave me the salary that i was looking for.

2.  I’m back in school mode. I want to bust my ass and get the shit done and move on.  I did fail my last term but that is my fault and my fault only.  I just didn’t care.  Now though, new job, new way of thinking.  It’s going to be hard down the stretch, but well worth it.  Or so I’ve been told.

3.  A girl that i know has to move out of the place she is renting due to it being sold.  She has nowhere to go and that sucks.  I know first hand how that it is.  I went from the military, to living with my Aunt, to my dads, to my sisters basement to my mother in laws basement to where I am now.  I wish I could help her.  I do have an extra room in my apartment, but I know my wife wouldn’t go for it.  Not saying she would be wrong to say no, just saying i know how it is to have to wonder what else can go wrong.

4. Freddie Gray, of course I was going to go there.  Freddie was arrested for…well that’s the thing, we really don’t know. Speculation is, is that he ran because of his record.  He was caught, put in the police van and transported. A few witnesses say that he was complaining of his leg hurting when being taken away.  This however does not explain how a guy who complained of a hurt leg, ended up dead due to spinal injuries.

4.5   It’s funny to me in a sad way that this man’s rap sheet has been released, as if it brings justification to his death. Does it really matter?  He could of had 40 arrest, or 0.  What does matter is how you go from living to dead while in custody.  This leads me to Baltimore where some call it protest, while others call it riots. I’m all for protesting, as long as it is done peacefully.  The problem that we have in Baltimore is that the media only picked up on the highschool aged “protesters” who ended up rioting.  11053469_10205453155140541_6729628925779625340_n 11169892_10205453160620678_285763273448683240_nThe difference between these pics are that in the 60’s there was a bond in the community. They fought for the love and respect of each other. Today though, these fucktards do what they do because they know a camera is watching them and society has glorified being a thug…or as i like to call it “being a fucking idiot”.

5. “All they are doing is destroying their own community.”  When you don’t have self worth for yourself, you can’t have it for your community.  If you live in poverty and cant purchase and enjoy the things that are being shown in the window fronts of these businesses, of course you’re not going to care about them.  A majority of these business are white owned, and unfortunately there is no connection to them. Yes, they are burning down a community, but it’s the community that has feed off of them.   Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s dumb as hell to burn down your own community, but there is a reason behind it.

6. Why don’t they protest black on black crime?  That’s easy, the media cold give two shit about that.

7.  We don’t have to worry about ISIS destroying us, just ourselves.
