A while ago I made a decision to try and avoid any sort of political topic where I wind up picking a side on an issue. It nearly always leads to some sort of debate in the comments section, which can frequently flare up into arguments, name calling, and other unpleasantness. And frankly I love to argue, so it’s not like I can just leave well enough alone. A frequent conversation in my house goes like this.
But people usually come here to see something funny, not argue about my political beliefs, so I made a decision to try to avoid those topics.
But today is not going to be one of those days. If that bothers you, feel free to skip this post and come back later. Seriously, this isn’t the lead-in for a really warped joke later. I’m going to talk about something that really bothers me. And frankly, I suspect some people who read this site are going to get upset. I’m fine with that; hopefully they’ll stick around for the quality nerd humor, funny military stories, and disturbing artwork.
It’s really long too.
For real, it’s like my brain just puked all over my keyboard in here. (more…)
