  1. The ObamaCare Supreme Court Ruling

    by , 2nd July 2012 at 06:51 PM
    As anyone who knows about me can probably guess, my reaction to the healthcare law decision by the Supreme Court was one of red fury. I lapsed into - and still am - in a state where my only thoughts about it can be summed up by Patrick Henry's famous "give me liberty, or give me death" speech. The Left threw themselves into an orgy of celebration over the ruling, but that celebration quickly turned around when the political difficulties imposed by the ruling became apparent. The fact that ...
  2. So I feel as though I've been smacked down. Hard.

    So I got into a mini argument with a poster on Deviantart about MLP. The poster was going off on how he didn't like the way the characters were being handled in the episode, amd my reply was that they know what they actually have as a fanbase when they worked on Season 2.

    Lauren Faust herself basically told me to SFTU because I was wrong and misinterpreting everything.

    Ow. My pride.
  3. So I have come to a decision in my life.

    Doing this requires a big commitment. Biggest in my life. But I am willing to make it. Two of my friends have enlisted - one in the Navy, the other in the Marines. ...
  4. You Know What Really Grinds My Gears? Episode 2: Another Rant About Fanfics

    Not gonna be a particularly long one, and no politicking.

    Ok...If there's something that really gets under my skin, it's this message: "Don't like, don't read!"

    Any time I see this message, I want to reach through the computer and punch the author in the head about five times. Why? Because any time you see that message in a summary, the story concocted is intentionally gravely offensive. For example:

    "X character finds true love...with ...
  5. The American Civil War internationally

    by , 1st July 2011 at 03:33 PM
    Being a history buff, and being one who likes to study wars and conflicts, I've come across a bit of a curiosity.

    I can't really seem to find any perspective on what was thought about the American Civil War in Europe beyond policy. Britain played to both sides, while France heavily favored the Confederacy. But beyond that, I seem unable to find data and quotes on the conflict itself. Why is this? I can only think of one reason:

    Europe was simply too busy. Understandable, ...
