Been a while

Having made this blog to basically spew out whatever I thought was interesting I'm considering getting back into it but in order to do this I need a theme. Being that my previous posts were mostly about current events and interesting things going on I figure I'll continue that pattern by reporting current news.

"2014: The year we pulled out"

Looking at the world today one interesting topic has to do with the US and war, more specifically with Afghanistan. Going on since 2001 the primary driver for the war was the attacks on September 11 that brought the Twin Towers to the ground, since then the government has spent 4-6 billion dollars a month sustaining this war. Sharing some good news, the Obama administration has decided to remove all troops from Afghanistan by 2014 and is scheduled to meet with the Afghan President on Friday. Contending both sides, on the one hand removing our troops will save us a large chunk of the 4-6 billion wasted every month that can go towards either managing this ridiculous debt the country has gotten itself into or improving our infrastructure. Looking at the negatives of removing troops, many believe that doing so will only weaken the Afghan National Security Forces making it easier for Al-Qaeda to operate within the country. Whether we choose to withdraw completely or keep some troops to assist the Afghans, one thing is certain and that is that if we don't pull out of Afghanistan eventually we'll end up as broke as when the Soviet Union decided to invade Afghanistan in 1979 finally having to pull out 10 years later.

Back from Hibernation

And the first thing I wanna say is that anyone who is heavily invested on the stock market ouch for you

Current Market Indexes as of 09/22/11 3:23 PM are as follow :

Dow Jones
10,612.01 -512.83 (-4.61%)

S&P 500
1,115.80 -50.96 (-4.37%)

2,423.28 -114.91 (-4.53%)

well this was obviously seen as soon as the Federal Reserve decided to unveil Operation Twist which is moving around $400 billion from short term treasuries to long term treasuries, this and Greece's debt crisis is not good. What wonderful times we have ahead of us hopefully everything will all go well.

Happy Easter!

Today is the day that Jesus rose back from the dead on a majestic bunny rabbit to bring psychedelic eggs to all those across the land who believe in him. The only problem is that these eggs are scattered and hidden across the earth like dragon balls and in order to find them one must have faith in Jesus and his bunny.

Sadly my faith has not been strong enough and so I sit here with no chocolate but mark my words one day I will find those eggs my theory is that they are in my neighbors backyard ^_^

Mr Anderson!

I'd like to quote a line from the matrix that I found very interesting.

Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment. But you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what that is? A virus.

A friend of mine says that other mammals dont find equilibrium on their own. they find it through being eaten by predators. usually its their young who are eaten, as the old become smart. sound familiar?

Writers block?

It's been a while since I've written on here, so I thought I'd start up again, I currently find myself experiencing writers block as I try to complete my 6 page essay that is due on Wednesday I find myself unable to come up with the words to describe how the dualism in American politics has created two extremes (LEFT vs RIGHT).

Have you ever had writers block? If you have you understand the frustration that can be experienced as you try to complete your work on time.
