Why I Don’t Worship the Troops

Go around any average American neighborhood and you will see people with special license plates or bumper stickers saying “U.S. Veteran” or “Vietnam Veteran.” People have their hats or other clothing to make sure you know they are veterans of military service here in the United States.

It’s definitely one of the sacred cows in the United States.

But for myself I can give a shit. I find it annoying and self-righteous as fuck that people need to interject that they are veterans. There are many reasons for this.

First, let me start with the horrible United States foreign policy. Are people not aware of the sort of actions that this country has taken in Central America, South America, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East? The United States is constantly overthrowing democratically elected governments or chasing resources such as oil. Many people, both American and non-American would agree that the U.S. foreign policy has done nothing but draw the ire of the rest of the world.

If no one volunteered to join the military the United States would find it much harder to press their agenda on the rest of the world.

Secondly, the military is the most socialistic entity in the United States. If you sign up to kill brown people the United States will provide healthcare, dental, child-care, tuition assistance and an array of other goodies that other people in Europe and elsewhere get just with citizenship. See, they want people desperate so they can go kill overseas. Even the brown people here will willingly sign up to kill brown people half-way across the world because of this desperation.

However, if people stopped joining the military and advocated for what they want the average person could have healthcare and more protections that a sturdy safety net could provide. The United States would be forced to invest in its infrastructure. The French know how to advocate for themselves and they have decent lives. Many people in the United States are too poor and stupid to really even understand the rest of the world.

The amount of money the United States spends on its military is atrocious especially regarding how messed up the infrastructure is. There are people in the United States who definitely live in third-world conditions.

The personal lives of the veterans when they come also are pretty bad. In my experience, many of these “heroes” who get churned out of the military machine just come back to society as sociopaths. The value of life is less to them. It’s hard to have rational conversations with these people. They act like you personally owe them something for your freedom and existence. They become shitty husbands, fathers, and human beings. I have hated being around many vets.

Outside the United States, no one really gives a shit for their military service. A lot of people think the U.S. military is a nuisance.

So honestly, please save that fucking shit for someone who cares. I know a lot of Americans would hate me for saying this but they are lemmings. Vets have such a huge rate of suicide and drug use. No one really gives a shit because it’s not like society goes out of its way to rehabilitate these people.

What I Will Miss About Hawaii…

There’s a few good things about living on the Big Island.

First and foremost I love the wildlife. I have lived with geckos the past six or so years and it’s wonderful. The Big Island geckos are bright neon green and have cute personalities. They love to ride on the dashboard of my car. The babies love to crawl on me. They are sweet looking. I talk to them and make sure they eat bugs.

Mongoose, related to weasels, run around and they are cute. Chickens and hogs run around. The occasional goat wanders around.

The beaches are probably the best in the world. There is so much aquatic wildlife including bright colored fish. There are not too many dangers like poisonous snakes or saltwater crocodiles. The water is clean and deep blue.

Old Asian people are everywhere. They remind me of my grandmother who is very cute. These people are adorable as well because they putter around really slowly and look two-hundred years old. It is not like when I was living in Orange County and everyone was white and crabby.

The air is very clean. It feels good to walk around and breathe. It is better than breathing in big city air.

There are a few local foods that I love. Not to mention tropical fruit.

Living here has been quiet and peaceful. Most of the time too quiet and peaceful but I have used this time to grow as a person and learn new knowledge. I attend Jiu-Jitsu classes. I have built a WordPress server and File Sharing Server.

Wrestle Kingdom 13

It’s that time of year again and this main event is Kenny Omega versus Tanahashi!

I love Kenny but I totally expect him to lose his match and title. He’s an awesome face for NJPW because he’s from the West but speaks fluent Japanese. However, he’s probably going to bail on NJPW in the near future.

Let’s hope this is the greatest Wrestle Kingdom ever!!!

My Stupid Cousin Got Hacked… Neener Neener

While eating wonderful and delicious Thai food my mother mentioned that a hacker got to my cousin.  The hacker took all his Bitcoin, which my cousin was living off of, and now my cousin has to get a regular job again.

I posted my conversation with my cousin.  I was asking him “What’s the value of Bitcoin?”  He avoided the question and eventually kicked me out of his life citing that I was “negative.”

He told me I was wasting my life playing video games and that I should get serious about investing.  He told me that I was wasting money by using Bitcoin to buy cannabis.

Oh, how it feels to be vindicated over and over again.  My cousins are idiots.  I guess if you have more than two brain cells to rub together you end up on their shitlist.  I haven’t had a Christmas or Thanksgiving with them in years, but you know what, fuck them!

This particular cousin is like a con-man making charts to tell people when to invest and when not.  Unfortunately, Bitcoin is not safe and you can get hacked and lose all your wealth in a manner of minutes.

Grand Theft Auto V is One of the Best Values Ever

I bought this game a couple years after release because I just couldn’t get a gaming PC together.

That and the hefty $60 price tag kept me away for a bit.  I bought it on sale, but let me tell you even if I didn’t it would be worth every penny.

I only play online.  I am sure the single-player campaign is epic and stellar, but I love interacting with other players.

This game just gets better and better.  The developers, Rockstar Games, are always adding new aspects to the game.  

A Motorcycle Club and Organization allowed me to do stuff like steal cars for cash and sell meth.  But they have added bunkers for doomsday scenarios, new game modes, and other private contract missions.  

Now just when I thought development was dead because you can get this game for $20 they add something called Arena War which I have yet to try.

This is how you do massive online gaming.  Hopefully Bethseda can take a look at this and gain something from what Rockstar does.
