The political season has ended and that can only mean one thing: I am going to take another stab at a Victoria Advocate Blog Section or VABS, as I always loved to call it.
Before I get right down to the nitty-gritty, I would like to mention that yesterday’s elections were astounding, and in regards to some races, downright historical. I pray that our Nation’s elected, from the POTUS to our local officials, work towards repairing the ailing economy and the nasty division our nation is currently nesting itself in.
I could care less if you have a fancy R or a bold D behind your name. Get it together, for the sake of the people who put you in your position.
I can’t promise that my political rants will end exactly there and begin with the next election season. And I won’t – because that just wouldn’t be fun.
While I used to blog and comment quite frequently on the Victoria Advocate website, I decided at certain points over the last two years to go away and come back. Most of the reasons for that centered around politics and the handful of "commenters" on the website that have no idea what the difference is between a discussion and an argument. I welcome discussion here, but I won't hesitate to delete spiteful and hate-filled comments that have nothing to do with the initial subject at hand.
Since my absence has lasted for almost five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes (I most definitely sang as I typed that), I think it apropos to introduce myself (conveniently copied from my profile page):
I am 32 but I feel like I am 25, depending on the time of day and/or the day of the week.
I consider myself an inalienable rights activist. I am a full time starving student at the Victoria College, a part time salesperson/janitor, and a struggling domestic engineer.
I care about many things and I usually voice my opinion about all of those things, in a way that some people do not understand or like (surprise!).
I think that there are a number of under-appreciated keys on the English Keyboard. I do not discriminate, regardless of keyboard position. I hold full responsibility for bringing to light the blatant dismissal of the parentheses, colon, and exclamation mark. Lest we not also forget the ever-elusive ellipsis…
(Where would sentence fragments be without them?)
While I tend to lack diplomacy and tact at times, what I say always comes from the very core of my soul, and that has to matter for something.
Happy reading, and don’t forget the Twizzlers.
