Been doing some thinking.

I often talk about wanting this country to go ahead and split again. I'll move to the north to be with like minded brethren. But today I was thinking about how much I love the fact that we are in the middle of North America. There is a lot of Mexican influence in the south where I currently reside, and I would guess there is some Canadian influence in our northern states.

Our neighbors' culture bleeds into ours. Not only that, but we have the luxury of people from all over the world bringing their history and culture and mixing it in. I know this isn't news, but I was just thinking about this and how frankly bad ass it is. I work in a little grocery store and at any given moment I may hear 4+ different languages spoken at once. I love that!

For anyone to be turned off by this boggles my mind. Why is the thought of different people speaking different languages so scary to some? Is it lack of education, travel, or curiosity? I don't know.

I feel sad and alone sometimes during these dark days we are in, but I keep telling myself "I am not alone in my thinking. The vast majority of my fellow countrymen feel as I do. This horror show will end. It is the final deathblow of a flailing, sad and pathetic construct of weak people with nothing but anger and hatred in their hearts."

It certainly is a struggle to wade through the perpetual vomit, but I'm going to get to the finish line. I don't want to miss what's on the other side.

I don't know. Maybe I've had too many beers.

Just got home

from the Houston Dynamo game. Saw a fan in my section with a Dynamo jersey with the number 45. The part of the jersey where the name would go said "Impeach". It was nice to see.

By the way, the Dynamo beat Columbus Crew 2-0!

Not sure if this goes here, but

found out yesterday I'll be a dad yet again. It'll be the third spawn of a jedi who is struggling not to succumb to the power of the dark side.

Kidding aside, I'll be a grandpa dad, having spaced them out 8 1/2 years apart. In fact, our latest wasn't exactly planned, and at the appointment yesterday we found out it's a boy and we're already 28 weeks along! Yikes!

It's scary bringing a new life into this rancid mess of a world we're in at the moment, but hopefully things will get exponentially better within the next few years. Otherwise, these kids will have to unleash the power of the force and help to take down the New Order with a little help from old grandpa dad jedi knight.

May the force be with all of us...

old. Boring. Too complacent to realize my full potential.
