Well, goody.

The Bailout Bill–a.k.a., the Crap Sandwich, has been passed with strong bipartisan support.

So, now that I have worked for over a decade to buy my own house, I get to witness not only the expansion of American socialism and the crippling of the free market system, but I get to watch my own tax money be used to buy the houses of other people who couldn’t be bothered with their own fiscal responsibility.

I am absolutely disgusted with the American Congress. As I wrote that last sentence, House Majority Whip Clyburn is actually speaking on television, saying, “I hope that this piece of legislation has gone a long way toward restoring the credibility of our body politic.”

My God.

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.

  1. I am exasperated by it all!I have kids in the meantime!! Should I put them in PS and get a job like so many other moms?? I can’t bare the thought! Does Hub have to work 2 days OT every week just to have what we used to have on 40 hours and 2 dollars LESS an hour? I am flabergasted and I feel like turning into a meanie.Sigh. But I won’t. I do realize that I am still very blessed. Thank God my Hub has a job.I just recently saw on the news and read an article about how, in Haiti, so many people have resorted to eating mud-cakes. That is a cake made out of MUD with a little salt and oil.I don’t know what is going on.

  2. ok. I just got done watching Oprah. She had Suzy ___ and some other financial experts on there talking about money and the economy. They kept saying over and over again that EVERYONE was living beyond their means!!! Err! I cannot tell you how angry she was making me!!!!! Not EVERYONE was living beyond their means!!!! Maybe it just makes the guilty ones feel better to hear that! Errr!!!
