Greetings all! Yes, a new chapter of Avatar has been posted, and no, it’s not the end of the world as we know it. I haven’t abandoned the story — I’m working on chapter 42 (which doesn’t contain the answer to the universe) and honestly, in order to keep you all from killing me, I have to be able to post both chapter 41 and 42 in relatively quick succession (you know, a month apart, instead of several). Since I like to keep several chapters ahead of what’s posted, that means that 43 will have to be mostly finished before I post chapter 41. Wow. That’s way more complicated then it should be.
And now a word of thanks to my editor.
KB, you are the greatest. Thank you.
This guy turns my ramblings into useful writing. He’s easy to work with, and I’ve learned a lot from him over the years ( yes, it’s been years since I started this insanity), and I really appreciate it. If I had money, he’d get some. I don’t, so well… I can’t give him any.
And speaking of money…
(Begin Political Rant)
This begins my political rant. I suggest if you don’t want to read it, you just skip over it. There’s no real need for you to inflict this on yourself, if you’re only interested in Avatar. However, I need to rant, and it’s my blog.
I’m not going to rant about the embarrassment of Sarah Palin.
I’m not going to rant about McCain.
Or even Obama.
I’m going to rant about our country. Because I have no fucking idea where the hell it went.
Do you have any idea what kind of money seven hundred and fifty BILLION FUCKING DOLLARS IS?
I am not an economist, and I’m sure you could find quite a number of them that support this latest abomination that the Bush administration(R) — with the willing help of our Congress(D) — has perpetrated against the American people in the government’s on-going war against We The People.
We got a war on Terror.
We got a war on Drugs.
We got a war on Porn.
We got a war on them Illegal Immigrants.
We got wars on Smoking and Transfats.
We got wars on Crime, Guns and Copyright infringement.
What the fuck? Let’s just call it what it it really is: A war on the American People.
Anyway, let me see if I have this straight: For the past twenty-plus years, large corporations, through the use of lobbyists, have brought Congress, lock, stock and barrel. Congress eagerly sold out the PeePull and rewrote the laws allowing people who already have a ton of money, to make even more money, not pay very much in the way of taxes on it, and ship American jobs and technology overseas.
Then, these same greedy people, not happy with the way they were already raping the “middle class” blind, decided that that wasn’t enough. Nope. They started creating money, then lending it to each other until one day, someone pointed and shouted “Hey, the President’s got no CLOTHES on!”
Then it all fell apart.
The vaunted free market principle that all the fat-cats and their supporters were hiding behind, crashed. Again. This wasn’t the first crash, of course, just the latest.
Where was the bail out in the late 1980s when our electronics sector fell through the floor? Bet most of you don’t remember that, do ya? Where was the bailout when the so-called Internet bubble burst? When our tech sector crashed? There wasn’t one. Why? Because those wonderful people at the top of the money heap, and their lakies in Congress, weren’t really hurt by it. Bill Gates and all the rest of them, in fact, went and cried to Congress “We need more H1B Visas! We don’t have any smart engineers in the US anymore.”
Hey Bill? We have them. You fuckers just don’t want to pay us.
Education, technology, energy creation, security (real security, not that bullshit that Homeland Security (Call it what it is, will ya? Fatherland Troopers — the new SS)), the economy all those things that we have left in the hands of our ‘leaders’ have suffered while we only cared about getting the cheapest price for shit we don’t need at WallMart. And those ‘leaders’ have utterly and completely failed us while stealing everything from us. Our money, our Healthcare system, our security and last, but most important, our freedom.
I wish I had the answer to make this better. The only thing I can come up with, is to vote EVERY SINGLE incumbent politician out of office. At ALL levels. Especially at local levels, because this shit starts at home, right in our own back yards.
Our government loves to talk about challenges for the PeePull and how we can meet them. I just wonder when our government is going to meet their challenges, their obligations and actually uphold the Constitution. If I’ve learned anything from history though, I’ve learned that they will not.
(End Political Rant)
And now onto my personal gorilla war: Freedom Fighting for Porn.
In case you haven’t noticed, most of America is mentally ill when it comes to sex. ‘Meerikin’s are just totally fucked up in the head. So, in an effort to fight their misguided efforts to kill any joy or happiness they can find, I write about porn. And I watch porn. And the porn I’m currently watching, is a new perversion hatched by the folks at Kink.com called Public Disgrace. I just love the stuff that Princess Donna does, and while the site doesn’t contain a huge amount of public sex yet, I suspect that it eventually will. It does have a lot of gang bangs of a type I like. Few things are hotter (IMHO) than a subbie bound and well used by a group of people, and there are several shoots that contain just that. This has got to be the most realistic porn ever. How funny is it that a sex site with actor and actress, using BDSM, can come up with porn that shows honest orgasms? Way cool.
