As you can see, I've updated my blog layout. I think it brings out the blue in my eyes.
It's been a while since I've written anything on this here medium, but I figured now is that time since I'll be traveling to London next week.
I have a reason for my silence. It's kind of along the same lines as the last election. The amount of stupidity and hatred in America is alarming. I think if I cancelled my Facebook account, I might write more. As that would make me mostly ignorant of the rampant stupidity.
People putting links to bogus websites talking about our president being this religion or that religion and how he's a dictator and needs to be impeached and on and on and on. It's alarming. I'm no Obama fan, but then again, I don't know the guy. Until you've walked a mile in their shoes or shared a pint of ale with them... And even if he is Muslim, who gives a flying sh*t? Really.
There are a plethora of websites whose sole intent is to provoke stupid ignorant people into posting stupid ignorant things and apparently they have quite the following. I thought, briefly, about pointing out all of these websites, but then when you start looking at the names of the websites and do a bit or research, it's just intuitively obvious and not worth my time and energy.
Huffington Post did an interesting piece on Western Journalism. If you're going to research important things like US Government on the Internet, at least pick halfway decent websites or use a wide smattering of websites and do some cross checking. Really. If you're just going to rely on one website for all of your cantankerous sharing on Facebook, share something helpful like the health risks of thong underwear.
Anyway, the government shutdown and all the finger pointing that went with it made me so irritated that I couldn't blog because that's all I could think to blog about. It's sad. I did write my representative a letter. It didn't help.
I told him to quit acting like a 5 year old who doesn't get his way at the playground. "Yeah, I know most of you voted to play football, but I want to play soccer and since I own the sporting equipment, I'm just taking my stuff and going home!" Senator Cruz's Childish Motards. I think they're going to start a band or something.
