New Insight

My posts usually follow a relatively long thought process in which they stir in my mind until I have a specific thing to express. This post is an after thought to the culmination of many things currently happening in my life.

Living in the LA area offers much in the way of culture, experiences, love, substance abuse and most of all opportunities. I've heard it described as the most diverse city in the history of mankind. I don't know for sure if that's true but it is still an awe inspiring idea to digest when thinking about the place you live. In the recent days I've realized that I have been focusing my life much more on the things that pass the time rather than propel me in the right direction. I posted a quote that I will reference again as its importance has been re-realized:

"When you throw a stone into the water, it finds the quickest way to the bottom of the water. It is the same when Siddhartha has an aim, a goal"

I am suddenly motivated when looking at my life as a one chance journey to streamline the stone that is in essence me, eliminating the things to slow my path to my end goals. Substances and time wasting activities have to be cut down drastically and the time saved has to go to a more efficient use. I want so many things out of life that it's hard to swallow it all at once. Most of all I want mastery of my surroundings. That is something that takes time. And that time is what I promise to spend




My thoughts on debating politics with someone are a lot how I feel about the special olympics, even if you win, you're still retarded. That said, my stance on the election is one best described as surprised. Mostly that Obama won and especially in his flawless marketing that took him to a victory. Not to say he's a bad candidate... maybe a little under qualified with lack of experience... But I didn't think that the American people had reached a level where charisma outweighed substance.

I was a Mccain supporter but only by about 2% more than Obama. It just seemed a little too extreme to hand the country over in a time of economic crisis and the biggest financial market meltdown of the century to a man who has never run a business (ie the process of checks and balances) nor has made significant policy changes in his past. That isn't to say he won' rise to the occasion, it's saying he won't have the instincts to make quick decisions. His advisors will have their hands full.

What really sold me were the candidate's speeches and debates. Where Obama promised change and hope, McCain offered tax cuts and market solutions. Where Obama said he would do something and not how, McCain gave specific instances of the steps he would take to achieve it. McCain is about as charismatic as Gilbert Godfried but the substance to his points made me look past the polished exterior and on to what the solutions to our problems will be. He's old as fuck, stiff, has poor body language, a disfigured face and doesn't appeal to black or women voters: He's proper fucked if you look externally. Not only this, but his real downfall (other than the idiot Palin) was that his ties to George Bush were not aggressively marketed against. There was no response to the Obama campaign's message that "McCain voted with the president on issues over 90% of the time". Nobody likes Bush. He will go down as a terrible 8 years in American History. The people are sick of his shit. Why wouldn't you try and distance yourself form that as much as possible?

Either way maybe a little change in the oval office is good. Obama has the Charisma necessary to get the job done. If he can figure out that other 90% like budget and national security I think we might just make it.

Some people shouldn't be allowed to breed

Wow, the last 24 hours has been one of the strangest single days I've ever had. It's 4:30 in the morning and I just got back from the ER so I'll do a shorthand list:

1. Constant nausea brought on by either a long bout with the stomach flu, a record long bout with food poisoning, or some other problem in my stomach.

2. Broken up 2 separate instances of domestic abuse. Domestic abuse is not funny.... But these instances were a little

3. Threatened to call the cops on a cop... And it worked. I've never told a cop to "get the fuck out of my house and take this cracky slut with you" before. Never thought i would have to

4. Stopped a robbery in progress: some rich drug addict college girls think they can get away with things that are absurd with stories that are even more ridiculous

5. Had to vouch for my dog's alibi: he was literally accused of being an accessory to a crime committed in a cab driver's back seat. Luckily he was keeping my feet warm at the time

6. Watched a girl run through a half inch thick glass door= ER, 3 separate lacerations needing stitches.

...And here I am. Back in bed where it all started with me having the flu. The best part? I had plans to take my parents out to breakfast in a few hours and show them my new house. It currently looks like a homicide scene with blood and glass strewn across the floor and I think my dog caught my flu because there is fresh vomit on my couch. That or a cracky rich girl did it
