The Aurora Massacre: It’s A Cover-Up, I Tells Ya!

Is everybody done talking about that shooting in Colorado now? I’m a little late to the par – erm, I mean … discussion?

Anyway, for those of you who haven’t been keeping up with the news cycle there was a bit of a, well, massacre in a quaint little Colorado city called Aurora. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Whose idea was it to name a township after that princess from Sleeping Beauty who apparently has some form of chronic fatigue syndrome? Oh, wait. That’s the last thing on your mind, you say? Um…

Maybe it’s time for me to get serious here.

So, what happened? Well, as everybody who isn’t a woodland hermit already knows, a man with no criminal record to speak of rushed into a crowded theater, on the opening premiere of the Dark Knight, and shot over fifty people, killing twelve and wounding the rest. (I think the death toll is up from that original figure, if I’m not mistaken.) Calling this a “downer” would be a vast understatement. Continue reading

Apologies For the … Mysterious, Unexplained Disappearance

A big moment of gratitude to my family for giving me the stomach flu. Yay. I’m a little behind on the blog posts, also in part due to that ideologically skewed, all-hail-the-mighty-State, the-government-has-our-best-interests-at-heart Civics Course I have to finish if I want to, well … prepare myself for a lifetime of debt bondage to get a (probably) worthless degree at some Che Guevera-worshipping university, only to not find any work in the profession I trained for.

Grr. Can you feel the cynicism emanating from my pores? That’s the abdominal cramps and grogginess talking. Deal.

Over the next fews days (weeks?), I’ll try to give my two cents on that crazy thing that happened in Colorado, the supposedly “definitive” study that proves global warming exists (pshh), the political football games being played with Pentagon budget cuts (oh no, not that), drones flying over our backyards, how the Olympics (contrary to popular wisdom) is probably screwing over the economy, Mitt Romney’s unsurprisingly Obama-esque political record, why Bain Capital was right to ship job overseas, and those effin’ al Qaeda-backed Syrian rebels that everybody seems to love so much. And probably some other current events, if my “American Government” textbook doesn’t successfully brainwash and de-program me first.

Tah-tah.
