So, what are we going to talk about today? Well, I thought about it and decided that I ought to mention something that I bet few people know about, but that will effect more people that expected. I’m talking about the FCC deciding that they should sell off a portion of the wireless mic spectrum to make space for wireless broadband and cell phone uses. What makes them think that they own and can sell something that isn’t tangible and isn’t theirs or even own-able in the first place? And what about people that already own equipment that operates in the affected spectrum? Are they just out of luck? Now they have to buy new equipment until the FCC decides to screw them over again? What gives the Government that kind of power? The kind of power to arbitrarily do something like this? I’ll tell you want! The sheeple. That’s right, we the sheeple of the United Herd of America. No one will stand up to or complain about things that makes sense. Oh yeah, half the country goes batshit crazy because of something Trump did years ago, but when our rights and freedoms get taken away all we get are tumbleweeds. Wake up America.
So, Don Lemon, a CNN TV show host says this: “We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.”
As a white male, I take Lemon’s statement personally. In one sentence, he says we “have to stop demonizing people” and then goes on to spew the most ignorant, racist demonization of a class of people. And what, perchance, is he thinking when he ominously states that “we have to start doing something about them?” Re-education concentration camps? Frontal lobotomies? Social isolation – the latter of which Lemon may recall as segregation. His condemnatory racist language does not only make Lemon hateful, it makes him downright dishonest. Is his mind so addled with racial venom that he is intellectually incapable of comprehending the illogical juxtaposition of his own statement?
Now, Don Lemon happens to be black, and this brings up another point. If I, as a white man, said this about black people, I would be villified and probably murdered, especially in the press … not given my own TV show. How is it that no one sees this double standard?
Yep, it’s been a good while since I posted anything. Not that anyone actually reads this blog (yeah, I know, fresh content might help!). I might have had one or two of ya trapped at one point, but I think you got away. Anyway, it wasn’t for a lack of wanting to post, I kept having ideas and perspirations … uh, I mean inspirations, and I’d want to post something relating to that, but I didn’t want to post something that came out looking cheap. I do take pride in my work, and it seemed like I never got my timing worked out to get stuff put together properly and get it posted before life had moved along to whatever came next. On top of that, there have been subjects I had stayed away from like Politics, Current News and Events, and stuff like that. Even though I am interested in those topics as well, I felt like it might be a hassle or someone might get offended or whatever. But you know what? It’s my blog, my server space, etc., and I am an equal opportunity offender. So, from now on, I am going to post about anything I feel like. My focus is still probably going to be music and technology because those are two of my passions, but I figure if I find something else I want to share or talk about, I might just post something about it anyway. You never know what someone might like! LoL I am also going to start a new section called “If I Were Dictator” where I talk about how I would rule the country if I were in charge, and maybe even compare it to the way it’s being done now. And yes I said Dictator, because if I’m in charge I’m in freakin’ charge! Come back and see me now, ya’hear!
Is this what the world is coming to these days? I mean, this seems so ridiculous to me, it’s worse than a car lease! You pay anywhere from $600 to $3,000 or more per month for a car and after your 24 month contract is up, you don’t own anything! Plus, unlike a car lease, there will be no option to buy the car when the contract ends, even if you wanted to! This new scam … I mean, scheme is called a car “subscription plan” modeled after the way cell phone companies handle their cell phone plans and customers (Yep, you read that right). It appears that Volvo, Porsche, Cadillac, Audi, Ford and more companies are trying to get in on the act. One big difference that I should note here is that, unlike a lease, this new “subscription” plan covers your insurance and maintenance as well. This seems like you have no control over just about anything, and heaven forbid if you scratch it or go over your miles per month limit! It all sounds good, but really, isn’t this kind of like throwing your money away when you can buy a car or truck and actually own the damn thing when you are done?? Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know.
Yep, this is another SWToR post/rant, only this time it’s about a problem I am having or ran into after the latest patch, the United Forces (hardware consolidation) update. I mention the hardware consolidation part because that’s really where this problem started. You see, SWToR was originally spread out over many servers, each one a duplicate of the others. You had X number of character slots on a server, and then you could go to a different server and make more. This meant that you could really have lots of toons, they were just spread out over however many servers you played on.
Like I mentioned in a previous post, I play Star Wars: The Old Republic, and I just had to share this screenshot with all none of you that visit my site. This is one of my main characters, a Jedi (on the left) and at this point in time he is running around with his companion that is a Sith Lord named Lord Scourge (on the right). The funny part of this thing is the eyewear that both toons have on. First of all the match, they are the same thing, which happened totally by accident. But also, the eyewear makes them look totally like futuristic Pimp Daddy’s!!!
