A look at the mess that has become our state and nation......
and other assorted commentary.

I've really been resisting change for quite some time and pride myself in going against the grain. Part of the reason is I hate to be manipulated, coerced or forced into doing something I don't want to do. From the time I was young I always wanted to be doing the opposite of what everyone else was doing or what others expected. Lately, a lot of my resistance has been in the area of technology. I'm rebelling a great deal against "Smartphones" and TV services subscriptions, because I truly hate how they have pushed us into a corner and are forcing us to get in line with their products and practices. Whether it's satellite television, forcing us into buying tons of channels I'll never watch or the cell phone companies that now make us buy mega-bytes of airtime , and pay a fee every month just to have access to the line. I'm really tired of it. It would be very easy to just fall in line with what is going on but, I'm holding out. We are stooges, easily manipulated and led around by the ring in our noses and it just pisses me off. So screw you Verizon, AT&T, Direct TV, Dish and all the rest.
