Remember, remember the 8th of December…
Sorry, it just popped into my head. I didn’t even like that movie.

Well, it’s been quite a week in the news. Nine people were shot to death in ANOTHER “gun-free zone”–this time while Christmas shopping at a mall in Nebraska. You know, this really seems like an issue that affects DIS-ARMED SUBJECTS OF THE GOVERNMENT more than it would affect ARMED CITIZENS OF THE NATION.

It seems that Republicans and Democrats have finally found an issue for which they can provide bi-partisan support. Victory in Iraq? No. Re-affirmation of the Bill of Rights? No. The obvious superiority of low-tax, free-market economy? Oh, HELL no! Bailing out defaulted mortgages! That’s right; it’s very likely that my tax money will soon be spent to reward people who invested foolishly and keep lower-income families from finding affordable homes. I’m so proud. Have I mentioned how much I don’t like Socialism?

And let’s not forget the Religion of Peace (of the Grave): Muslims in Sudan have “pardoned” a British schoolteacher for the HATE-INSPIRING SIN of allowing a child to name a stuffed animal “Muhammed.” The original punishment for the schoolteacher included imprisonment AND LASHING. Why are we respecting these people again?

I finally got to watch Pirates of the Caribbean At World’s End last night. Great special effects, POORLY THOUGHT-OUT PLOT. Let us look at just the ending, as exemplus gratium. Why didn’t Will make Elizabeth a member of his crew? She could spend a lifetime alone, seeing him once every ten years, OR she could have eternal youth exploring the sea with him forever (or until they got tired of each other). Hm.
Well, far be it from me to say that Hollywood is full of idiots… Oh, wait–I say that all the time!

I spent the first years of my life in a trailer park outside of a tiny town in rural Missouri. I grew up to be a long-haired, gun-hating, military-hating, Presbyterian super-liberal. Well, perhaps the “growing up” happened later. While in high school, I was on the cross-country and wrestling teams, and actually won my weight-class in a State powerlifting competition. I went on to attend college on a Bright Flight scholarship, where I promptly became an atheist. I trained for a few years in Shotokan karate and Cheng-system taijiquan before training in my first real martial art, Hwarang-Do, under the late Franklin Fowlkes (later the Founder and Grandmaster of the Five Elements Martial Arts System). I married an older Taiwanese woman my junior year, got divorced in short order, and dropped out of college. After completing my AA in Psychology, I decided I needed a complete change of scenery and joined the U.S. Marine Corps (having early been assured that there was no way that a skinny liberal like me would ever survive Boot Camp). Contrary to what the Hipster Zombies will tell you, this did not “brainwash me into being a Conservative”. Instead, it made me a very unhappy, short-haired liberal, surrounded by guns and the military. However, I spent my whole contract (after schools) on the island of Okinawa, where I was exposed to points of view not dominated by the American liberal media. During this time, I taught ESL classes as a side-job, trained under some of the highest-ranking masters of karate on Okinawa, and discovered the practice of Buddhism. I also spent some time in Korea, where I got to train in hapkido. It was during this period that I came gradually to realize how stupid and evil American liberalism actually is. This was partly due to my Military Police command sending me to Small Arms Instructor school, which gave me more exposure to guns than I could ever have imagined—thus negating my idiotic liberal distaste for them. After the active-duty portion of my Marine Corps contract was over, I worked several jobs, from security contracts to operating a forklift in a warehouse. In 2002, however, when the invasion of Iraq was getting under way, I signed up with the Missouri Army National Guard, and have remained with them since, continuing as a Military Policeman. I am also full-time corrections officer, a member of the Anglican Church, and at one time was an Instructor Candidate in Dekiti-Tirsia Serradas Kali (until my instructor moved away). My hobbies (beyond blogging) include strength training, shooting sports, martial arts, creating digital art, and being a huge science and science-fiction geek.
