A realization

Seems like I'm having quite a few epiphanies of late, hope I don't burn out.

I've been wondering what exactly I should do with this blog.  I originally wanted to start a writing project where I would write every single day just to get in the habit.  Unfortunately, my resolve is for shit.  So, I've been trying to decide what this blog should entail.

The funny thing is, I've also started two other blogs recently; one for movie reviews and another for updates to my Media Blitzkrieg website.  I'm even considering starting another blog for gonzo style posts...

Of course, now that I think about it, this blog could be used for that quite nicely whenever I'm in that kind of mood.  It would certainly fit one of my original concepts for this one.

Still in the process of working through what I want to do, but I'll keep anyone reading updated on that front.

Not that I'm entirely sure anyone is reading this thing...

Not that I'm a huge Obama fan...

But seriously, get off his religious views as a reason to find him "suspicious".  It's sad.

The 1st Amendment of our glorious Constitution guarantees freedom of religion without persecution.  Anyone remember that?  The Obama detractors sure don't.  Of course, these are the same assholes who want to wipe their ass with the Constitution by having reporters arrested for trying to report on certain things.

Just because a man is a Muslim, or does not consider the bible something to swear an oath on, does not make him evil.  Actually, it makes him a truer American than the one forcing others to change their views based on his own.

In the words of Evelyn Beatrice Hall (not Voltaire as most believe):

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

I am so sick of these people who claim they just report the facts, but merely report one side of them.  Let's be truly without bias in our claims people, then those who are of weaker minds will not form their own warped opinions and try to corrupt others.

Mike Judge wasn't very far off with his possible future predictions in "Idiocracy".  We're becoming  a nation of morons, and the politicians are loving it.  They can make anything they say seem true with the proper spin, and with the help of some very talented media outlets...

Welcome to the REAL "no-spin zone".

Honestly, I expected more

So, everyone has been getting prepared for Hanna, and I did honestly expect more at this point.

People have mentioned losing power already.  This strikes me as odd since I live in an apartment complex with some of the worst power in town, but not even a brown-out here (he says, hoping he doesn't jinx it).

Normally, if a storm is gonna hit us, the power would be gone by now and I'd be writing this down in hopes of typing it up when the lights return.

Still, I'm not an idiot.  I hit the grocery store today and stocked up on food.  Lots of dry-goods and non-perishables... plus some perishables because I figured it would be a while before Hanna got here.  Of course, no one knows when that's going to be.

The Weather Channel says the storm is hitting land in SC (low down the coast) and working it's way up from there.  Hopefully, by the time it reaches us, she'll be too weak to do much damage. There's a Weather Channel reporter on right now live from Ocean Isle, NC who is outside reporting with strong winds, but no rain at the moment.

Ophelia was the last hurricane to do some damage here.  The one thing that amazes me at the moment is the lack of rain (again, he says hoping he doesn't jinx things).  Normally, there would be a massive collection of water in my parking lot (right outside my door), and the car would be immersed slightly.  Fortunately, that hasn't happened yet.

Of course, if it does I have an invite to go stay with some friends downtown (assuming I can get the car out of the lot by that point) and hang with them.  I'll probably take them up on that tomorrow.

For tonight, more storm prep just in case.

EDIT: Perhaps I spoke too soon.  The power just stuttered a few times.  Not good.

Batten down the hatches, me hardies.  This here be a man-eater. Y'argh.
