All, I know I’ve been absent for quite some time, it’s not for lack of wanting to blog, but more of general life and work squeezing out any free time to do so. Yeah, it’s a lame excuse, but for once an accurate one.
Since my last blog, I’ve joined a gym, and have been, up until the last couple of weeks, been going at least 3 times a week, most weeks it was 4 or 5 times. I don’t think I’ve actually lost any weight, per se, but I have began toning up and getting definition back that has been hidden by that fat bastard for far too long. I can also state that I do have more energy, and a little less mundane grind angst because of it. Now, I’m not trying to become even more intimidating than I already am, by bulking up, but unfortunately it is happening… oh well, once anyone gets to know me, they discover I can be their best friend ever, and yes that includes hiding those pesky bodies! LOL, kinda….
I have also unfortunately discovered that I am becoming more and more frustrated with the sad state of our country’s government. I just learned yesterday that my personal information was seized by a government agency for no valid reason. It seems that the 4th amendment doesn’t protect us from our own government anymore! All of you reading this that have known me for a decent amount of time, know my background, and know that I at times struggle with maintaining a balance of paranoia concerning the government, and just living my life. I partially “blame” my father, although I can say that he did open my eyes to realizing that just because someone is in power, doesn’t mean that they are using it for our own good. I rather shamefully realized today that I do not believe I have ever read our Constitution in it’s entirety ever. This is inexcusable to me. I also feel that every American citizen should read the entire Constitution, including the Bill of Rights, every 6 months or so. This would allow us all to remember how things were intended to work, and maybe let us all remind the federal government who works for whom. With the recent goings on in the federal government, the warrant-less searches, searches conducted with warrants obtained with knowingly falsified information, POTUS illegally modifying, delaying and changing laws that were passed by congress. Congress being too useless to impeach, or enforce their constitutional authority. Do you all realize that with the latest rounds of Executive orders his majesty passed, he has given himself (illegally) the power to seize the assets of any US citizen that directly, or indirectly “actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine” The problem with this is that who gets to determine what threatens the peace or security of the Ukraine, more to the point, no US president should ever threaten any US citizens assets over the state of a foreign nation!!!! What the fuck are we doing people??? Why are we letting this stand? There is another “useful idiot” in congress wanting to post FCC agents at all Broadcast news agencies, “to assess the coverage of eight “critical information” subjects, including public health, politics, transportation, the environment and “economic opportunities.”” umm, hello, THIS IS TYRANNY! Hell it’s not even poorly concealed “soft Tyranny” that we’ve all been conditioned for the past couple of decades to just accept; it’s the full on, USSR, Chinese, state run media!!! thankfully, at least for now, the public outcry has been so great that they have “amended” the idea… which to me means that they will back-burner it for another “national emergency” situation.
And then we have the, hell I don’t even know how to describe them.. insane?, foolish? or just plain stupid, state lawmakers in Connecticut who are attempting to force legal, law-abiding US citizens to surrender their 2nd amendment rights… now these Liberal Obama sycophants are stunned by thousands of CT residents who are simply refusing to comply… Are they trying to start a second revolution? Have they forgotten everything about early US history? Do they not realize this type of act is the very spark that ignited the first revolutionary war? Now there are tens of thousands of patriots that have pledged support of their Connecticut brethren. This is shaping up to turn into a damn Civil war! Don’t get me wrong readers, I DO NOT WANT a war, I DO NOT WANT to have to kill and maim my fellow citizens, but I will not, I repeat, I will not live as subject, a servant, or a damn slave! More to the point I will not allow my daughters to grow up in a country that orders them around, that determines every aspect of their lives, that gives them so much debt that they will never be out from under it. If the fight comes to me, rest assured that I will fight, I will fight and I am sure I will die, but I will not bow down, I have done more than a few things that I am less than proud of in my life, but I will stand for my beliefs, and I fully believe in the Constitution of the United States, and CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC that we have! In my belief the only way to ensure our continued success, and survival of the Best and last bastion of Freedom in this world is to defend it, to the death if need be. I will not be disarmed, I will not submit, I will not comply with any further laws that are against the Constitution of the United States. I will work as hard and tirelessly as I can while still being able to support my family, to turn the tide of the laws that have already encroached much too far onto our freedoms.
Now that the heavy, weighty crap is outta the way, work is, well, work… I’m extremely busy, I have a project with a deadline that is so insanely aggressive that I have no idea how in the hell me and the team of 5 others that I am the technical lead for can possibly complete it. Not to mention one of those 5 is a complete useless waste of space that acts like a damn 2 year old 90% of the time. We have almost 500 computers to image, build (install all the customized software on), and deploy them all, by 08APR14. If every system had the exact same software load out, and there were no data transfers to be done it would still be an almost impossible task. With customized software loads on every PC, and having to do data transfers for almost everyone of them, it is an impossible time frame. I know this, my co-worker the project manager knows this, but yet we have to continue on.
Home is OK, other than not having enough time to be at home with my wife and daughters. This week I am flying solo, as they are on Spring break, and I’m too busy with work to be able to get away. That is something that I have to change in the next few years. I should never be to busy to spend time away with my wife and children; none of us should ever have to be that busy. I’m not saying that we should all live like the Obama’s, taking more vacations them a travel agent! But we should all make sure we have time to appreciate what we have, to remember what we have that is worth fighting for.
OK, this post is far to long and rambling, so in closing, Live well, and pray that in our lifetimes, we do not have to “use them, or lose them, and our country forever.
