I'm back from Louisiana

I'm back from my visit home to Louisiana. I won't comment a lot on my trip home but I will say that I had an absolutely wonderful time.

I loved seeing my family. I can't tell you how much I miss them. I met a couple of nephews that I haven't met before
because they had been born since I was home last; my niece and her brother were too young when I left to really remember me.

After this trip, I'm not sure if I can call Portland my home anymore. I want to move closer to my family.

Today was Christmas. I hope everyone had a wonderful day. Christmas is always one of my favorite holidays. I'm going home to Louisiana tomorrow. This will be the first time I've been home in eight years. I'm really looking forward to seeing my family. I will be back on the 31st. I know I haven't been writing a lot lately.

I am reading Mark Steyn's book, "America Alone." I will let you know what I think about it. I am playing "Gears of War" for the 360. It's awesome.

Well, I will see you all in a few days. I'm going to have to get up 3 am. Oh, Boy.

Iraq Surrender Group

The Iraq Study Group released its report today. As expected it is nothing but a recipe for defeat and appeasement. If the people in control of this country were in control of the United States during World War Two, we would be putting together a Gaudalcanal Study Group and be making recommendations to withdraw from the South Pacific and to begin talks with Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany.

My support for the President is fading very fast. I'm not even sure he even cares if we win this war anymore. The things this group recommends do nothing but give aid and comfort to our enemies. James Baker should be held up, like Jimmy Carter, as a total incompetent and he will do anything to hurt this country and appease our enemies.

I am scared that Western Civilization is on the very verge of falling and that we will find ourselves in a new Dark Age that will make the Dark Ages look like the Renaissance. Every person who lives wants when they die that the world they leave behind will be a better place than we they entered it, but I'm not so sure this will happen. I think things have never looked so bleak as they are now.

Reading and playing

I finished reading "The Last Command" by Timothy Zahn some time ago. I then read another Star Wars novelization but I'm now reading "World War Z" by Max Brooks. Brooks is the son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft. I got this book as an Advanced Readers Copy from work. I've been enjoying it very much. The book tells the personal stories of some of the survivors of a world wide Zombie War. The "invasion" catches the world totally unaware, the loss of life and devestation is horrible, and comes close to overwhelming us all and thereby causing the extinction of the human race. I highly recommend this book. I haven't been able to put it down.

I love Zombie movies. I love "Night of the Living Dead" (the original) and I like the new version of "Dawn of the Dead" but my all time favorite Zombie movie is "Shaun of the Dead." There's also a very good and very funny X-Box game out that I like called "Stubbs the Zombie: Rebel Without a Pulse."

I am playing "Kingdom Hearts" right now. Its a fun game. Playing a game with two of the main characters being Goofy and Donald Duck you'd think it would be a kid's game. It's not. I would love to get the sequel, "Kingdom Hearts II," and I hope that after paying some bills on Thursday I might have enough left over to get it. The game I am planning on buying on Thursday is "Star Trek: Legacies." This is a game that I'm looking forward to playing. I'll let you know how it is later.

Venezualan election

Today Venezuala is holding elections. Little Hugo is up for re-election. I've been paying close attention to this election, first because I want to see Little Hugo get his ass kicked and the real people of Venezuala sent this pathetic little tyrant wannabe packing, hopefully up against a brick wall with a firing squad waiting to give him a little present, and second because I've been to Venezuala and I really liked what I saw. I have always planned to go back and see more of the country but I will not visit as long as Little Hugo is in power.

This worthless little shit has ruined a great country. I'm sure he's going to cheat and will claim victory even if he has not won it. This is always the case with tyrants of his ilk.
I wonder if Jimmuh Carter is there "monitoring" this election. If he is there, then you know he will declare Little Hugo the winner. There is not a tin pot, tin horn dictator on this planet that Carter doesn't like. He was the worst President in American history and now he's the worst ex-President in American history. When he passes I hope no one mourns him. Let him be forgotten like he should have a long time ago.

I will post a few items this weekend. There are a few things I want to talk about but I want to wait until it's not so late in the evening and after I've had a good sleep. I have been thinking about starting comments again in the next few days but if I begin receiving any shitty posts from liberal freak trolls then I'll shut it off again. I won't take any crap from liberals.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. May you all enjoy a great meal wil friends and family.

Comments off

I've turned off comments. I already feel bad enough about what I said on Tuesday and I know the liberals would love to rub it in. I beat myself up all the time about it, I don't need others to beat me up as well. I was told that I really hurt my reputation but I never thought I had a reputation to begin with. Liberals will think that I've turned chicken by doing this and that I don't really want to debate. Well I just will have to disappoint them. I started this blog for myself and if I have to continue it with just myself then that's just the way it will have to be.


The new trailer for Spider Man 3 is out at IFilms. It rocks. Talk about a sweet looking movie. This is one movie I cannot wait for. I will be there the first day.

I was thinking

I was thinking that maybe after my extreme overreaction to the election on Tuesday, that I should comment less on politics and more on other things. Getting away from so much politics might be a good thing. There's a lot more to life and my interests than politics.

I will continue to mention and post political thoughts. I have to. Politics is definitely one of my interests but thinking about them all the time like I did for this election is what got me into trouble. I'm also a gamer and a reader. I will now try to post my thoughts on games that I'm playing and what I think about them and books that I'm reading and what I think about them. I'm also going to get back to talking about my martial arts. This site is named after one of the most colorful and exciting Kung Fu styles. I shouldn't have drifted away from it.

I'm currently re-playing "Knights of the Old Republic" by Bioware. This is one of the classic games for the XBox. I also just purchased the new game "Gears of War" and will begin playing it in the very near future. I will let you know what I think as I go along.

The book I'm currently reading is "Star Wars:The Last Command," by Timothy Zahn. As you can tell I love Star Wars. There are a huge number of Star Wars books published and this book and the other two books in its series are among the best in the genre. Actually with the exception to the movie tie-in books and a few books like "Splinter of the Mind's Eye," and The Adventures of Lando Calrissian and The Adventures of Han Solo books, this series, I think, are the first three books in the current crop of Star Wars books. Star Wars books have there own seperate shelf areas in the science fiction sections of most bookstore. I haven't bought the three new Star Wars books that have recently been published, "Betrayal," "Bloodlines," and "Path of Destruction:A Novel of the Old Republic." I just don't have the money. I will probably have to wait until they come out in trade paper or even get one used or even have to wait until I find one in used trade paper. Oh, well but I do have a lot to keep me entertained until then.

Enough (with updates)

Enough is enough. Yes, I know my Masters of Science Degree is in Writing but my emphasis was in Book Publishing not in Creative Writing. I have never claimed to be a writer. I know what my limitations are and writing is just not a skill that I possess. I love to read. I have hundreds of books, ranging from science fiction (a lot of those) to mysteries to history and so on, but the thought of writing one myself is just beyond me. My interests in Publishing has never been editing or writing. I want to be a Designer or even go into Bookselling. One of my dream jobs is to work in or operate a bookstore. I think I would enjoy being a Buyer for some bookstore somewhere. At least I'd get a chance to get all the free Readers Copies the publishing houses send to Buyers.

Also, how many other famous writers out there make mistakes. I would love to see an unedited manuscript by some famous writer. Even the best make mistakes, full of grammatical errors, poor word choice, run on sentences and poor sentence structure.

Update: You know, I was wrong about fussing at you for telling me about another mistake I made in my spelling and grammar in a past post. I'm keeping what I just wrote up so that I can show I'm not trying to hide anything as others accuse me of. Thank you Alek for pointing out my goof. Once you showed me, I spotted what I did wrong, right away. Please help keep me honest. I take what you said in the spirit of a stern but honest teacher pointing out what I did wrong in the hope that I will learn from my mistake and that it only make me a better writer and blogger. Enough is not enough. Thank you.

Thanks Charles Johnson

Last night as some of you know I went totally unhinged. I won't go into what I said because I don't want to repeat it. Charles Johnson over at LGF accepted my sincere apology and deleted the nasty posts I left over there. I appreciate that. He is a true gentleman. I still am very embarrassed by writing the word "quite" when I should have written "quit." What a stupid mistake for someone who just got her Masters in Writing with a 3.5 GPA. I was a very good student and usually I'm good at spelling. Last night Marian was not here. Yeah, maybe that's it. I went far, far away and something else took my place. I was playing "Knights of the Old Republic" for XBox and maybe a bit of the Dark Side of the Force reached out and took me over. Well, I'm back on the Light Side now. I can't promise I won't get angry again and I do have a bit of a temper, but I'll try not to go that bad again. Stop me if I do, please.

A very large I'm sorry

I said some very bad things tonight. I just wanted to apologize for them.

When a man like David Frum, whose work I've read and admire sends me a reply castigating me for, not just my bad spelling of the word quit but what I said, then I know I've really gone off the deep end. I'm not really this bad. I'm usually a very easy going type person.

I'm sorry. I can't take back all that I said but I can ask that those of you who I haven't alienated to please forgive me.
I've deleted those posts so they are no longer to be found on my blog. I'm not quitting. I can't now. I just wonder if all the posts that were from Anonymous were from one person or several people.

Thank God for "Lurch" Kerry

Thank God for John "Lurch" Kerry. He is the gift for the Republican party that just keeps on giving. He has just assured a Republican victory on Tuesday. Keep on talking, buddy. What you have to say is much appreciated.
