Well Hi there!
Welcome to the second installment of my Cut the Crap series of blog posts.
On August 27. 2013 I took and passed my Life Insurance Lincense Exam, scoring 85 out of a possible 100 correct answers. Woo-hoo. While that is a pretty terrific score and all, I'm afraid that the hard work has only just begun. I am now set to start studying for my series 6 & 63 Securities Licensing Exam.
Really, the problem I'm having right now is fear.
"Fear of what?" You ask?
It is unknown how many Mekong Giant Catfish there are in existense according to my soon to be released audio production on this topic. I make reference to this blog post a couple of times in that audio, so I'm posting it in advance.
The audio is derived from two videos that I encountered.
I could give you a load of excuses why things aren't going well for me right now, but that is not really why I am writing this series, is it? No! I'm here to cut the crap. So as valid as those excuses are, they do not belong here, in Cut the Crap, Episode 4.
The other evening when I was traveling home from work, I heard a recording of Black Sabbath's War Pigs on the radio. I was literally moved to tears. You must be thinking that I'm mental to cry over something that kicks ass as much as that song.
Two weeks ago Mr. Goldsmith and I discussed the possibility of the U.S. Government enforcing the United Nations Convention on Psychotropic Substances. Now it seems that the Prez will be signing a treaty restricting the right of American's to own and use firearms. We briefly discussed Rand Paul's uppityness about the prospect of the Gov't of the U.S. enforcing such a treaty. We'll dig into this a little more. For more from my source, see this article from the Breitbart.

I read an article posted by Cathy Smith (the wife of Sci-fi writer L. Neil Smith) which posited that Obama will force Colorado and Washington states to comply with U.N. treaty.
I hope to discuss this with Gardner on Monday's Show, 2013-05-13. I hope we get a chance to.
Yeah I know this seems a bit far fetched, but I think this is something that warrants further discussion. I'll be modifying this post as I prepare to discuss this with Gard.
The new season of Red Dwarf is soon to air (Well, on October 4th for you lucky British viewers anyways), and several sites are already offering Dwarfer's a sneak peek at what's to come. The original Boys from the Dwarf are returning for a six part series called Red Dwarf X, which will probably be putting an end cap on the show for good, though as a fan myself I certainly hope not!
There's also some talk about a Red Dwarf and Doctor Who crossover, though it's mainly founded on interviews with the Red Dwarf cast detailing their interest in the Doctor Who series as fans themselves.
Check the links for videos & Who info! See attached image for my fun Rimmer photoshop edit.
Oh and Gardner, you're welcome! Enjoy! :)
What follows is my entry into the 2011 edition of the Foundation for Economic Education's Eugene S. Thorpe Writing Competition.
According to an e-mail I received on March 7, 2012

The following was originally posted as a guest post on Heather's Harmony, a travel blog. Go there for interesting insights into a person planning to escape from the United States.
Enjoy these Friday funnies!!
From antiwar.com news:
"President Obama’s deployment of 100 US combat forces to Uganda and surrounding areas has shocked many as highly unusual and even downright bizarre. But while ground troops in Africa are a comparatively rare occurrence, the decision follows a very familiar path of dominant US foreign policy."
A few more invasions and Obama can redeem his Risk cards for new units!
