If there is any of my blogs that you read, please let it be this one. It may be the most important thing I write. I’m not one for propaganda or have I ever felt that our government was doing things to harm us but with everything like PIPA, SOPA, And ACTA going around I’m starting to wonder. For those of you who don’t know, these bills pretty much give the government complete control over the internet. The bill is made to keep pirating down, but they are trying to take anything that is copyrighted off the net, shutting down many major sites and even more so they can use any reason to shut down sites. This takes the freedom out of possibly one of the greatest forms of free speech. Which brings us to a bill much more frightening.
Just very recently, the first of January actually. The government passed a bill that will destroy this country as we know it. Because of the confusing wording of this bill it passed without a problem, but the contents of this bill will take away the bill of rights, amendments 1 through 6, yes, this means that your right to free speech will also be taken. You will also have your right to silence taken away as well. What does this mean? Any means to force the question out of you will be possible. It will make this country a military state, including the incarceration of innocent people and rightful use of torture. The bill also gives the right to assassinate citizens and for the military to take over. Please watch this video for more information, though I’ve never been sure about anonymous, thinking they’re nothing more than a couple good hackers. But, well, I might be seeing their strength.
Holy shit. Is this my first blog of the year? Jesus I’m slow. I swear I was fully planning on posting about the new year and about resolutions and about my Christmas presents (awesome longboard btw) and shit but I guess I just forgot. Oh well.
Anyway, last night I couldn’t sleep, which has thus led me to writing this blog at 7:30 in the god damn morning, so I decided it was about time I went on youtube and browsed around a bit. Now, I’m sure I’m not the only one who does this, but I tend to watch videos then look over at the random little suggested videos they display on the side and click the next video that catches my fancy, usually this tends to bring me to the weird area of youtube that has things like popping pimples and “Here’s my cat taking a shit” types of videos that honestly I would never look at. Well, this happened again. I don’t know what I was originally looking at that made this happen but before I knew it I was in the section of “In Memoriam” videos. You know, where people post videos about their dead grandparents or dead pets and all that, but of course me being the unlucky person I am, found myself in the section of dead babies. Disclaimer time! I do not like dead babies, I just feel the need to point that out before people start thinking I’m some sort of freak. I love kids, in fact I plan on becoming a teacher, which is why these things hit me so hard, and because I hate myself I can’t seem to stop watching them. I want to find out what happened. Before I know it, I’m bawling my eyes out telling myself I’m done and I’m never going to watch them again but then I click the next one. Ugh… I hate myself. Of course this happened after I haven’t slept all night, giving a nice start to an early frustrating morning.
