Ok...yeah...while since updated, eh?
Well, you should know by know I don't do anything interesting. Some really interesting times debating with my immediate supervisor about various political topics...to summarize it, I shall quote the Family Guy (which I've been watching a lot more of lately...):
"Look at me Lois! I'm the two symbols of the Republican party! An elephant and a white guy who hates change"
While I'm on the topic of politics, I really hate these people who say we need to pull our troops out of Iraq. Do these people NOT understand that this is why other countries hate us? Sure, they dislike us for sticking our noses where they may or may not belong, but then when we DO go somewhere, we don't finish things and leave them worse than they were! I'd be willing to bet that less than 5% of the Iraqis actively want the Americans out, and yet because we're losing our troops, we're going to let these bullies murder hundreds, if not thousands of their fellow Iraqis? That's the problem, we have no issues with people killing each other, so long as no American is getting killed. It's sickening...and while I understand that these people want their sons/husbands/uncles/fathers/etc. back, bringing them back to send them out into an even worse situation later (look what happened in '91 and compare that to now) is an even greater disservice. These people volunteered, and being in the military was never a cakewalk. It's part of the risk that goes along with being a military family. Nobody forced them to join, they did so of their own free-will...and I for one believe that they are doing this nation proud. Much support to the men and women overseas...come home safe, but come home with the job done.
Anyway, Monday is my usual posting date...so we'll see what happens then. I'll have a massive update of toy wants (Easter is coming you lazy people who never sent me anything!) soon...so have no fear!
