Negative Campaigning

I told myself that I would not use this blog to pass a political message… I actually hate talking politics because I feel that people are so polarized by politics that doing so could create divides amongst my friends.

That being said, I will tell you I consider myself an independant, fiscal conservative, social conservative, environmentally liberal, completely for separation of church and state… of course I could go into detail of how I feel on each topic, but that would be wasting your time, because most of you probably do not really care and all your going to do is either support what I say or dispute what I believe and that is not what I care to do.

However, after the last few days watching the news and the campaigns of both policitcal parties, I would have to say, please just stop the negative campaign, for our sakes and yours, please stop.

For some reason, American voters are too stupid to do their own research as to who the better candidate is, too stupid to see through the negative ads and end up believing their message. Let me just tell you, the people that run the ads are the campaigns themselves… and I hope you really do understand this. If you want to understand the candidates better, then you should see their voting records.

Check how they managed the issues in the States that they help to run, look at their senate pages and decide for yourself who to vote for… do not decide because of what you see on TV in advertisements. Do not decide because one candidate tells you the other is a bad person, or that they do not have a grasp of what is wrong with our nation.

Inform yourselves, because that is the only way we will have a president that truly represents what the people want, until then we will end up getting stuck with whoever the people decide upon because he is not as bad as the other.

A Summer in Idaho

Seeing the expression on Eric’s face as he turned towards me after having peered out the window made me realize that something was seriously wrong. The car was getting harder to control and I asked him to see if we may have a flat tire, appearing as if he had just witnessed an incredible accident he simply replied, “it’s shreaded.”

We were about an hour drive from the nearest town and travelling a gravel road into the mountains, there was barely enough room to pull over and get out, let alone change a tire. I found a spot where I could get out of the way, although since we had not passed a single car since we left town that was the least of my worries.

A Trip Out West

The summer after college I worked for an insurance agency in North Carolina. It was a temporary job, just enough to get me through the summer with some money in my pocket and funds for my great adventure to California.

I had decided sometime during senior year of college that I was not going to go right into the work force and found a friend to travel with me to spend the winter at a ski resort.

It was early October when I decided to take the journey just in time to get settled in and find a job before the snow started to fall. We chose Squaw Valley, mainly because we had several other friends that had moved there earlier and allowed us to sleep on their couch while we looked for a place.

Day One

In an attempt to revive my writing and this weblog I am going to try to make one post a day for the rest of the year and see how far it takes me. The post may be a picture, or a video or just something that I am writing about at the time… I have many adventures and many things to post, so hopefully you will enjoy what I write and stick around for the festivities.

 

So here is day one…
