Random things, Updates...

Share on Twitter:

It's been a while, huh... Sorry. Life continues to be utterly insane/depressing, and I'm trying to focus less on the rest of the world and more on me. But I suppose we can take a look now... (It's 8 am, I haven't slept or eaten in at least a day, and I'm pissed off. So I doubt this will be entirely coherent. But is it ever?)

So we're nearing a big election year again, and already things are heating up. I don't know if you've noticed, but HRC endorsed President Obama again... I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this. I think Obama is an awesome guy, but his politics... fall flat, to put it nicely. He tried, and I'll give him that. We've had some huge victories in the past few years - progress on healthcare and insurance laws, the [gradual, but getting-there] end of DADT... but we've also been taking some major steps backwards on environmental issues, and taxes. Democrats are still Republican Lite, and that simply won't do.

Many more this year are looking for a strong Socialist candidate to run, or at least a more progressive leftist. I don't see it happening. I think with this whole sexting "scandal" Weiner's in, he's probably out. (For the record, I seriously hate when  people make a fuss over "sex scandals" like they're some sort of horror. And I guess for a society as uptight as ours, it seems to be. People fuck. Or they don't. Get over it.) A bunch of us are still hoping for Nader, or Bernie Sanders to step up. Who knows...

That's about as much as I'm aware of at the moment... And I have to leave anyway.

And I'm off to do yet another rant on defining other people's orientations tonight, because some people just don't seem to get it >_< (Not personal this time. It's a Glee thing that's spun out of control. But really, what doesn't in this fandom? Even the HP fandom is crazy now... There were NEVER massive ship wars like this back in the day. Or maybe I just hung out in the right circles... Ugh... I blame Twilight for this.)
