well i am in the process of making a new livejournal. i've had this one for two years and i thought that with me going to college and all it wouldn't be that bad of a time to start a new journal for a new chapter in my life..or something like that. anyway i am probably going to keep updating this one for a couple of weeks or so but i am going to go ahead and tell you that my new livejournal username is _metropolis_ so you might as well go ahead and add it and i'll start updating on that one relatively soon. until then this one will continue to be updated. hooray.

11:13 pm - A criticism of the President (yes you read correctly)
http://www.fortwayne.com/mld/fortwayne/news/world/9041517.htm

i was in florida when i found out about the new regulations set concerning cuba and cuban-americans traveling to cuba. basically, cuban-americans can only go to cuba once every three years in order to see their families. they used to be able to go once every 3 years. they can also spend only 50 dollars a day on food and lodging rather than the old 164 dollar mark.

this news was all over florida when i was down there. most cuban-americans were horrified and disgusted by these new policies enacted by the bush administration. i support bush probably on 60-70% of things and will vote for him in november, and i even i think that this is ridiculous. whether one actually supports these measures or not, they have to question why the hell bush would even think of doing such a thing in an election year. he's just alienated a group of voters in florida (cuban-americans) that supported him 4-1 over algore in the 2000 election. and remember, bush only won florida by 537 votes. so, cuban americans definately played a huge part in winning florida for bush. florida is as much (if not more) of a battleground state this year, and winning it is almost crucial for bush if he wants to win the whole election. so what does bush go and do? he pretty much spits in the face of a group that helped him win florida in 2000. this is the result of some extreme anti-castro advisors of bush that have pretty much advised him to commit political suicide.

even though i am far from a supporter of castro, (you know my stances on communism) i think that the cuban embargo should be lifted and we should learn to cooperate with castro. why? first off, the man is in his late seventies and will probably be dead within the next five years or so. he's really not the worst dictator in the world either, as funny as that sounds. sure, he goes crazy every once in awhile and imprisons dissenters, but what he does is a far cry from the acts of hitler, stalin, pol pot, saddam hussein, or kim jong il. sure, i'd prefer another type of government in cuba, but what they have right now isn't the worst thing in the world. the embargo is the most ridiculous thing in the world. first off, it is a unilateral embargo, which means the united states is the only country imposing it. that is pretty much saying "well, you can't go to Marsh, but you can go to Kroger, Publix, or any other grocery store." so the rest of the world is making an alright sum of money off of cuba while the united states is shut off. cuba is a beautiful island and a goldmine for american companies. we need to lift the embargo and start building great american hotels and tourist attractions there. there could be a ton of awesome new beach resorts and all kinds of other things. then we should tell people to travel there and spend all kinds of money, tip the hell out of the bellboys, and everything else.

of course, castro would benefit from this initially. but when cubans start to see what americans have they will go crazy and eventually want to embrace capitalism. when they see how many americans live, they will want to live that way too. they will want a cell phone, a car, a condo, and a nice wardrobe like people do in the great capitalist society that we live in. they'll be tired of the collectivist bullshit that they have to live with now and become tired of castro and just get rid of him.

end of rant.

well knowing i slept a good majority of the afternoon i am not very tired now so i guess i am going to go off on a couple random things.

evildoers and terrorists beware. my friend alex is in training at vmi and he's one crazy badass.



i think he'll be back in august or something so we can hang out before we go to school. plus he'll be able to visit me from time to time at gwu so its all good.

keren is cool because she is one of the only people besides my ex girlfriend that knew who peter tosh was.

i just felt like saying that.

hmm.

i am going to relax again tommorow. i am running out of suntan lotion. oh well.

9:37 pm - F911
well i just got back from the naples movie theatre, where i saw the new michael moore movie. here are my basic, random thoughts on the movie. since it is summer, i am tired, and the fact that i am not in school, i am not going to write a huge essay about the movie.

1. overall, the movie was well made and a lot of effort was obviously put into it.
2. the whole bin laden family thing omitted a few very important facts.
3. there were a few very obvious instances of racism/bigotry in the movie.
4. the movie showed many brutal aspects of the war in iraq that everyone should see, regardless of your feelings concerning the war.
5. the scenes with the woman breaking down in front of the white house were very moving. i would very much like to have a very long conversation with that woman. i'm sure a lot of people (regardless of political views) also would.
6. i think i was the only conservative in the theatre, which sort of worried me. although the movie didn't change any of my views and wouldn't change the views of any logical conservative, all conservatives still owe it to themselves to see this movie.
7. parts of the movie were very moving, parts of it were very stupid. i could see through a lot of moore's silly arguments and views. however, it is still important for anyone to see the presentation of the views. i will say that the 9/11 thing at the beginning, the woman breaking down in front of the white house, and a lot of the iraqi war footage was very moving and very well done.

overall, i would give F911 a 7/10 and i would reccomend it. there were a lot of annoying moore lemmings in the theatre which sort of detracted from the whole experience. moore's arguments didn't persuade me to change any of my views. keep in mind i maintained a very open mind during the movie. the woman from flint, michigan sticks out to me the most. i would like to talk to her very much about various things.

6:21 pm
well hi-ho, today was pretty interesting.

i am not sure when i woke up, but i think it was around 10:30 or 11:00. for the summer, that is quite early for me. my mom made some lunch and then we went to the mall in naples for awhile. i bought two new polo ralph lauren shirts, a new tommy shirt, a polo ralph lauren belt, and some nike athletic shorts. i don't really know how much bling i parted with and i really don't care. the stuff down here is sort of more expensive than it is in indianapolis, but i am sure that the stuff in dc will be even more expensive than the stuff down here. i went home after that and read some more of my book and just relaxed. it started raining really hard. the storms here are really crazy and a lot more powerful than the storms in indiana, which is interesting. it is also pretty weird how it can storm and then turn out to be a really nice day. in indiana, it is usually either nice all day or shitty all day.

this new place my grandparents bought down here is pretty sweet. i wish that i could take all of my friends down here and just party for a week, but that will probably never happen. it is a pretty good time down here, except as always there are a ton of old people.


the new jersey nets are so stupid in so many ways. if i were one of their fans i would be pulling my hair out right about now. however they are shopping kerry kittles right now. he is a shooting guard and the pacers badly need a shooting guard, and it would be interesting if we tried to pick him up.

holy shit. three posts in one day. well when it's nighttime in flo-ri-da and there's really not a hell of a lot to do, the internet is a great thing.

the next book i am going to read is the autobiography of malcolm x. i don't really know why, but i have had the urge to read that lately. oh, and in the speaking of race relations.


the things that people get away with, sheesh.

i've gotten four emails (mr popular i know) about the new bush commercial that shows clips from the moveon.org thing that compares bush to hitler to show how low people (and i'm not even going to call them democrats, moveon.org is a communist group hell-bent on revolution as far as i see it) have gone. there was also a quite nasty livejournal thread that i became involved in concerning the issue. luckily i think that the thread was deleted because the conversation became very hostile. anyway, i read something on one of the many conservative livejournal communities i belong to that goes something like this, and this statement clarifies what i think about the whole situation.

and i quote

When MoveOn equates Bush to Hitler, that is protected free speech. When Bush uses that as an example of the depths to which the Democrats have sunk, that's a hate crime. And, if you were wondering, War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength. In case you forgot how things work.

alright with that aside for now. you should really read this especially if you are really bored like i am. it is really quite interesting and pretty funny too. most of the time you wouldn't think of a conservative being some sort of activist or whatever they call them, but this is the case in this situation.

http://hq.protestwarrior.com/?page=/featured/PHS/PHS.php

oh and if you don't read it this is the best part

One boy told me I had no right to express political views in school, to which I told him about Tinker vs. des Moines and how the Supreme Court said I did. His retort: "f*** the Supreme Court, I don't give a sh** what they say, I am the f***ing court around here!" He then demanded that I stop taking his picture.

that made me laugh. and regardless if you're a democrat, republican, or communist (well maybe i shouldn't include communist since they hate free speech) that is pretty funny. it sort of reminds me of james in a way. yes james, it reminds me of you.

i'm going to see the comrade moore film of lies sometime this week hopefully. however i am going into the film with an open mind, regardless of what my recent prior commment just above this may suggest.

hmm. this was a pretty long and pointless post.

hmm so i was sitting here last night bored because i didn't really feel like going out very much and james told me that jeff wanted to call me from his orientation at ball state so i said whatever tell him to go ahead it is only around 11:30.

so jeff called me and he was pissed off because he said that ball state was just like high school and everyone was getting in to their old "high school cliques" or whatnot. i felt pretty bad for jeff about this, and stuff. because he has always had trouble talking to people in some cases. well i think that all people have that problem in some situations really and jeff was probably just caught at a bad time.

i've heard that ball state is a lot like high school from some people, so i don't know.

well anyway i guess i shouldn't worry about the student atmosphere at ball state when i am going to george washington university.

i have my college orientation really soon, i am leaving on friday. after hearing the nightmare of jeff, i am kind of worried about it for some people. not really for me personally, because i've always done pretty well in these situations, but i know there will probably be kids that are somewhat socially inept. i've always been kind of a nazi about getting everyone involved, so it would upset me if there were a lot of "outcasts." oh well, i guess. i can only control myself.

anyway i am really anxious about getting to dc.

i am looking at my summer, and the rest of june and july won't be too bad, but august looks like it is going to suck. a lot of my younger friends have to start school in mid august. which is kind of funny but it will leave me bored. i really could go to school at the end of this month and be cool with it.

i got my report card a few days ago. 4.05 haha.
