why i watch movies, sports and entertaining things

the real world can suck at times. these days for sure. the world seems hellbent on destroying itself and at times, it's hard to find fault in that idea. this last election took a huge toll on us all as a society and culture and regardless of who won, a good 1/2 the people who are emotionally tied to the results, lost. that's a lot of losing to get over. not happening very gracefully either. now i could google some of my own examples of the world gone mad but we all have our own examples. rioting since the left lost the election and showing them obama bumper stickers of "we won, get over it" do...

2 sided politics

the democrats were told a year ago there was hacking going on. on one hand i'd love to come out and AH HA YOU KNEW but being in the security industry - yea - it happens and you rely on a lot around you to keep it safe. there's a fine line between secure and pain in the arse, and that varies from business to business depending on how secure they wish to be. spearfishing - however - is a tough one. setup a new domain or buy a 10 year old dormant one and setup shop. target some people by their e-mails and suggested level of security and send the messages designed to do no more than have them clic...

nobody wins in this war

nobody wins in this war
it started off innocent enough. we will simply tell our children that they didn't lose, the race was unfair and didn't take their "uniqueness" into account.   we can't celebrate winning anymore because it may hurt those who didn't win and we must consider their feelings. we can't ask them to do more because how do we know the struggles they've already endured?   we can't ask our youth to step up and work because they already work hard doing...something i'm sure. so because you worked at something you're "entitled" to something easy.   winning has become a different shade of losi...

republican debates - i b illin...

i tried to watch it. i really did. i wanted to see if FINALLY adults could go a few minutes w/o acting like children or forum bullies just sitting and waiting to say SCREW FACTS I'M GETTING A SHOT IN!!!!   it never happened. the debate got changed after about 5 minutes.   when rubio (anyone else go "ru ru rubio" to genesis when they say his name also?) just jumped on trump for repeating himself all i could think was the little boy got hurt and he put that bullet in his ammobelt and couldn't wait to say the same thing about someone else.   for the love of god it's scarey as hell ...

"it's for the victims..." my ass

in response to the FBI caling out Apple and once again demanding NOT that they retrieve informarmation from a cell phone, but that they "backdoor" security just for them i can only say "hell to the no". i mean, really. it's for the victims? ( the story ) of course it is. i mean, our government is baffled by a phone and that in itself is worrisome. however, what is more troubling is the constant use of emotionalizing this to say it's about "the victims"   please.   "it's for the children!" used to be the battlecry. now, the victims.   look, i want to nail these bastards plans as ...

excuse me, mr president. we are not safer today than yesterday

excuse me, mr president. we are not safer today than yesterday
over the years our president has come on tv time and again to tell you we are safe. the bad guys are not going to get us in our sleep. because of his efforts we've not had attacks in our country and he will continue to ensure we do not. this was stressed recently in his state of the union address. really?  does anyone really think the world is safer? i don't. while not the entire fault of obama, his actions to seem to divide more than heal. his policy, certainly not traditional in the terms of making people safer. how do these things just off the top of my mind make us safer? for gun cont...

Si vis pacem, para bellum

Si vis pacem, para bellum
Whenever you start quoting latin, you know you’re quoting some old OLD verbiage. This statement in fact is found in Book 3 of Latin author Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus tract De Re Militari, although similiarly found in earlier works such as Platos Nomoi. By now you are either totally confused as to where this is going, or you know at least a little latin and have a pretty good idea. Peace. We all want it. The liberals and progressives, the conservatives and religious people. Well, most religions. It’s something dreamed about since the dawn of time and likely even before Italians started so...

Being Rebellious - Again. Why?

Being Rebellious - Again. Why?
From CNN: Volunteer Rebels? Tennessee County votes Monday on raising Confederate flag. Story . it's a flag people. nothing more, nothing less. what it represents is what it represents *to you* and your feelings are not universal. no one has that "right". what we do have is tolerance and understanding of the complex views and attitudes that make up this country but somewhere along the way it became a crime. a symbol of hate that if anyone used it to support overall freedom, they were racist. period. extremes handed out by mob mentality that bear no meaning or even truth to the statement. just h...
