It's Election Day, Vote
Why are you reading this? Did you vote? If you haven't, get off your ass and go vote, I'll be here when you get back.
Elections are way to important, too many people blow them off, thinking their vote doesn't matter. I disagree, it gives you a voice, a voice that is then added to a larger, collective voice. Instead of one, you become many, sharing a common voice.
I don't know how this election will go. I'm hoping for a blue tidal wave, I'll be surprised if it happens. OK, I'll leap for joy, shout from the rooftops, you know, that kind of happy shit. So it's wait and see, for all of us, but the one thing that I do believe will come out of this mid term, is direction, who we are as a nation, even if it ends up saying we're more divided than ever. I hope that's not the case.
Specially when it comes to how I like to watch my flicks. Back in the day, I rushed on the cable bandwagon, and I never imagined anything better would come along, the old big satellite dishes were a bit to pricey till Dish network came along. I hopped on that wagon too, but I'm about to cut the cord. Only reason I still have it, is to watch football, and I don't watch a lot of that these days. I already sub to CBS and HBO, the cost is minimal, and I'll probably pick up a few more. Pretty funny article, btw, comparing all the streaming companies to Game of Thrones.
I remember last year when Mohammed bin Salman purged Saudi Arabia of any opposition. MBS rounded them up in luxury, sealed the Ritz up tight, and begun a reign of abuse and torture. A year later we have the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and there's not much doubt in thinking people's mind, that MBS was behind the brutal assassination. So much so that many corporations pulled out of Davos in the Desert.
So why is it a delegation of Evangelical Christians just met with MBS? All I got is a what the fu... What message does that send about Christianity? Specially when the entire delegation is leaning forward, as if in worship of a golden idol. So yeah, I got problems with this shit.
The mystery of what happened at Shag Harbor back in 1967 has all the elements of intrigue, head scratching and just plain, weird shit, including an attempted ocean recovery by the Canadian government. Hell, Jacques-Yves Cousteau's grandkids went diving last July, looking for whatever crashed in the harbor. 50 years later it's not only remains a mystery, but a cool tourist attraction as well. Unlike Roswell, the crash was seen by pilots, by people on land, and on the radar of a fishing vessel. Think what you will, skeptics claim it was probably a meteorite breaking up, but that's standard fare for a non believer. Me? I'm thinking some old time fishing man has a strange body on ice in a little shack on the harbor.
It's Been a Hell of a Week
Sometimes, I feel like I'm already in Hell.
That's me tho'. You?
You have a good weekend

Before peace on earth, there was hell.
Strange, this work is over 25 years old, and looking back on it, I get why it never sold. But damn, I'm proud of it. Check out a sample, here.
With all the pieces laying around,
why is life so redundant?
God speaks to all, many hear, one acts.
There exists in every person the potential to do great harm and most people find that potential because it’s easier to find and execute than to find the potential to do good.
Keep the people fed with bread and they’ll catch you stealing them blind. Put a steak on their table, and they won’t care.
Social Commentary is an act of subterfuge that will destroy our civilization, but it just also happens to be a good thing.
What kind of person claims that kids out trick or treating on Halloween are doing the devils work, and might end up spending eternity in hell? Probably the same guy that built a huge replica of Noah's Ark and stocked it with dinosaurs. Probably the same guy that says if aliens exist, they'll going straight to hell, because only humans can know the face of god. I've always believed in demons doing the devils work, and I'm guessing when Ken Ham turns in after a hard days work, he slithers out of human form with a smile on his disfigured, horned face. People like ken, scare the hell outta me.
In light of the recent murder of Jamel Khashoggi, let's all remember how repressive Saudi Arabia really is. Hell, you can't even celebrate Halloween, even if you're a foreigner, living in a compound of foreigners. It isn't just Halloween, but Christmas, and god forbid, Valentines day as well. Apparently, if you're not married, you can't even be seen with someone of the opposite sex. But hey, they're giving us billions in return for all kinds of weapons of mass destruction, which kinda means any Saudi citizen that wants to speak out is going to get hammered hard by an American made tank. But don't blame us, we're in it for the oil.
Looks like the US isn't the only one having problems with their infrastructure. Imagine laying in a clean, sterile hospital bed, staring at the ceiling when you notice a small brown spot appear. As you watch, it seems to grow. In the back of you're mind, you know you're sick, but you're not thinking you're that sick that a doorway to Heaven has to open, as that little brown spots gets bigger, and bigger, and bigger.
And in the blink of an eye, you're engulfed in human waste, and you're wondering what the fuck you did in life to end up in Hell. Oh, the horror!
