I always respect the first amendment and the freedom to express ideas. I always work hard to explain that Tipper Gore has the right to protest a record label and it is not censorship. It is an exceptional example of free speech. I was really disappointed when Cop Killer was taken off the Body Count album. I completely support Walmart’s right to have an alternative nonexplicit album. The understanding of free speech in this country is convoluted. You have a right to say what you want, when you want, and not have the government interfere when you suffer the natural consequences. There are always consequences for speech. Shouting Fire or boring someone to death with your rambling are both big ones. John Stuart Mill understood these things and I recommend On Liberty to anyone who can read and think at the same time. On that note, I tried to read a book on Marx by Marxists and suffered through half of the book. I simply do not live in the same reality as these people and they are harder to understand than David Lynch. I tried to read Exploitation. A collection of essays dedicated to the philosophy and production theory of Karl Marx. I read Das Kapital and it was easier than this was. I understand that the people who wrote this are very intelligent. There is no doubt in my mind about that. They are also very wrong. In the grand scheme of things, if I no longer want a book, I deliver it to the library and they sell it to raise funds to buy new books. It’s a system I like. It makes me feel good about getting rid of crap I don’t want in my house. But, I surely do not want a book written by the intelligentsia falling into the hands of a fool who understands just enough to be convinced by these people. I will by no means ask that this book be pulled off of shelves where people can get it. I just won’t be the one to put it there.
I got my two free games for thirty days today and just finished downloading them (Little Big Planet and Dead Nation). After I finished Bayonetta (woohoo), I tried to play Dead Nation and I immediately had to download an update. So I’m typing this. I also opted to download the old Final Fantasy movie. It’s okay, but has nothing on Advent’s Children. I’m happy for Sony. They are a great company that distributes quality products and this was a tragedy. Should they ever find the SOBs that hacked ’em, I want them tortured and killed. As the old saying goes: “Dying’s too good for them.” Anyway, a little waterboarding never hurt anybody. Anyone who talks about the good hackers giving a what for to the evil corporation is a fool. It’s us, the customer who’ve lost out by the hackers actions and it is in my soundest of judgments that I say, hacking has become more than a bunch of pranks. It has become a costly behavior. It is theft. It is invasion of privacy and most of all, it’s just a dick move.
This thought is incomplete. Atlas Shrugged has been on my mind. I just started rereading it. I haven’t seen the movie, but I heard it was good. When I first started reading it, Clinton was in office…. I shuddered when I felt the book was prophetic. I held Clinton in contempt and the book seemed feasible. Here I am nary twenty years later and I find that Obama resembles the dumb asses in the book. I know not a deep informative analysis of the book, but there it is. I also keep having this image of The Fool Tarot Card except in my head it is Obama that has a dog nipping at his heels, he’s smiling as he looks to the sun and not noticing as he steps off a cliff destroying him but he has a rope connected to America and he’s dragging us with him.
Does anyone else check their order status when they order something from Amazon? I do it like three times a day until my order arrives. I do it even when I pre-order something and it doesn’t come out for another ten days and I’m too cheap to get anything but the super saver shipping. I have a serious obsessive compulsive thing going on here… I may need psychiatric help (more psychiatric help)…Oh dear, I feel that I must go check again and Alice: Madness Returns doesn’t come out until June 14th. What is the deal. I did order it early enough to get it for $45. The price has gone up to $59.99. That was awesome. Inever get the the better deal on things . I did order Catherine for $57 and now it’s $60 but that doesn’t feel like quite the savings….I’m off to Amazon.
I have just finished Bayonetta. It is an awesome game. I never play new games because they cost so much but if I was to give a review for Bayonetta, It would be a five thumbs up game. I seriously enjoyed the cut scenes and the full on action throughout the game. It was not a game so difficult that no one could finish it and it was reasonably good game play. The camera action was a little slow but that was my only complaint. Seriously Good Game. In it, you’re a witch, killing angels. Lines between good and evil were blurred and the game made an initially irritating title character into someone you could sympathize with. You get consistent cartoon sideboob and for me that’s a plus. I like hot, sexy cartoons….so sue me. I loved this game. Next, I will take on LA NOIRE!. I have Alice and Catherine on pre order. I have never pre-ordered a game before. This is so cool.
Alas, the Daily Show has come up with the best ones already. In my opinion, problems in this world abound….The Weather,….The War(s)….The Economy and the National Debt….Ignorance….Touchy Feely stuff I don’t care about….Looming Biblical Apocalyptic Prophecy….Some surprises the prophets didn’t tell us about….The undermining of the constitution and Bill of Rights….Undermining of Property and Privacy rights…The Lack of Interest in finding the answers to Life, The Universe and Everything…Nuclear Arms attached to the wrong hands….Terror…The Out of Control Regulatory Agencies(This means you NTSB and EPA…FDA…etc.) …Out of Control Legislative, Judicial, and Executive Powers….Lack of support for Israel…French People….Incomplete summaries of what is wrong with the world!!! I have no fears of only one thing, The Jewish Conspiracy to Control The world. And French Attack Helicopters. I am saddened by Glenn Beck leaving Fox News. I fear Haarp, or is that Aarp, not sure. But, in closing, I do think in this world of mass media that God gives us purpose. This purpose may be a single moment in contrast to lengthy periods of seeming lack of purpose. I say this in reference to Rep. Wiener. It just makes me chuckle..,.That may be a seemingly small purpose, but it is purpose.
My area of interest tends to be politics so I expected this to be a political blog that nobody read, but my first post comes to me in a state of frustration. It will be a single health blog to be unread among many an unread political blog. I have, for seven months, been trying to recover from what my psychiatric medication has been doing to me. I have been seeing a naturapath , exercising consistently, dieting and living cleaner than I have ever lived. Lo, in March, I found that I have Estradiol levels that are very high for a man. So, after the diet, exercise, etc., I have a thinner body, but man boobs and love handles that won’t go away. So, I jump online. I delve into the many secrets, symptoms and natural treatments for high estradiol levels. I take DIM during the day, ZMA at night and hope that all is well with the world. Yesterday, I find after trying to remedy these things myself, I also have dangerously low cortisol levels and my estradiol levels have risen by roughly 30%. I am immersed in the study of treating cortisol levels and if it is anywhere near as successful as I was at treating my estradiol levels, I may quit getting out of bed. No one wants to hear this, so, I’m lucky no one will read it. I don’t trust doctors, but I may have to give them another try. I am up a creek. In politics, how bout that Wiener?
