Breakthrough The Cycle (Poem)
As the heart aches the mouth profanes
To habits and addictions we've become enslaved
Our frustrations increase as our sin remains
Yet in our strength no progress can be obtained
Only when we are so broken, it's Him we start seeking
The one whom in our suffering has been silently weeping
His words never ceased as He has always been speaking
We ignore that voice that has been internally preaching
He sends out His faithful to testify of a love so great
It is not in His nature to forsake and let you fade away
He is determined to bring you back to that wonderful place
That in your search to fill your heart, you lost the way
Now you sit in worry, pain, and sorrow
Hoping for that miracle, a new tomorrow
Consuming all that will help you numb it all and let you forget
But your own strength only brings a new day with more regrets
Look into the depths of your heart
Remember that even you, He has set apart
From your side He hasn't chosen to depart
Take it now, seize it, and accept to restart
Jesus

BC's Billion-Dollar Climate Boondoggle
Last week, on my way into town to run errands, traffic was redirected around two intersections, while a windmill blade well over 100 feet long, was manuevered through them. It was on it's way to a wind-power project about an hour west of us.
We're eventually- possibly- going to have nearly 80 of those things dominating and despoiling the landscape around here. Right in the middle of a major migration route for Arctic birds. My wife- who is an ardent but Intelligent environmentalist- and myself, plan to collect bird bodies, if at all possible, after the bird choppers have gone up. Evidence, of course.
And then, likely, go look for another place to live. A fair number of people left this area when the five current towers were put up almost directly on top of their homes. Property values plummeted, livestock got sick, people got sick... we're far enough away from the current towers (we think), but the new towers will be three times the size of those, visible in all directions for ten

Climate Change Timeline 1895 to 2009
There is most certainly a pattern to climate change…
…but it’s not what you may think:
For at least 118 years, climate “scientists” have been claiming that the climate was going to kill us…but they have kept switching whether it was a coming ice age, or global warming.

A mandatory gun  buyback...so confiscation? by IND-conservative A mandatory gun buyback...so confiscation? :iconind-conservative:IND-conservative 19 9
In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been posting much within the past few weeks. There’s a couple of reasons for that, and most of them amount to a lot of stress within my life.

The first reason was Hurricane Irma. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or at least off of the East Coast, Hurricane Irma hit my home state of Florida, and while it had been reduced to a Category 2 storm by the time it reached where I lived, the storm managed to really hit hard. While my own house was spared, our backyard fencing, garage roof, and even our whole front porch was torn away. We managed to maintain power the day we returned from the shelter, but the remainder of the community was in ruin. It took days to clean up our yard, and a week for the rest of the community to return to normal.

The second reason, and the most important one for me, has been employment. Earlier this summer, I received terrible news that the company I have been working at for 6 long years was downsizing its part-time employees—myself included! The news was emotionally devastating to say the least. I knew in the back of my mind that my job, which I enjoyed very much, would not last forever, but I never realized that it would end so soon.

Because of this, I have been busting my ass on the job hunt, applying for jobs here and there. The good news is that I have two new part-time positions that I’m currently working for, plus a few other outlets for potential employment, but the pay for either of them isn’t as great as my previous job. As such, I have to take as much work as I can, especially with bills and taxes eating away what little money I had left in the bank.

So as you can tell, having to deal with job searching, as well as major hurricane, has kept me more than pre-occupied from other things, this blog included, which is why I haven’t been posting that much.

But that’s not the entire reason either.

You see, as much as I wanted my blog to talk about everything and anything, most of my content has been about politics. How can it not be with what’s going on in the world? If you don’t have an opinion about current events, you’re not paying attention.

And that’s the thing: current events. I mean—Sweet Celestia’s plot!—are things messed up, especially under the current president. It’s like the year 2016 told everyone else that no other year could be worse than it, and then the years 2017 replied, “hold my beer!” Trump. North Korea. Charlottesville. Berkeley. Evergreen College. Terrorism. Riots. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria!

I’m sorry, but it’s bad enough that I have to deal with immediate issues in my own life, but to have to compound that all with the world turning upside down and on fire. That’s just too much to handle. And even if I wanted to say anything about it, what is there to say?

That’s probably my biggest issue with politics: there’s nothing for me to say. What can I say? About anything? What can I say that hasn’t already been said a thousand times over by everyone else, and what can anyone else say in turn that hasn’t already been addressed and refuted by other people? And, most importantly, what can I say that won’t get people to hate me?

That point in particular. Honestly, the one thing that I hate most about politics, other than how repetitive it is, is how, no matter what side I’m on, I’m going to receive flak for it. I have a problem with war crimes? I hate the troops. I have a problem with police brutality? I hate the police. I have a problem with government spending? I hate the poor. I have a problem with feminists and social justice warriors? I’m a privileged cis-hetero white male who hates anyone who isn’t like me, apparently. I’ve said this before in a previous post, but there comes a point where you just get tired of hearing how much you suck or how your opinion shouldn’t matter.

So what does it all mean? Will this mean that I’m going to stop blogging? No, but I’m going to be less frequent that I previously was.

First, understand that this blog is a hobby. Not a job. A hobby. That means that I don’t get paid for this. I’ve considered trying to monetize my content, be it through Google Sense, Paypal, or Patreon, but it seems that there doesn’t seem to be any viable avenue that I can do so lucratively and that wouldn't be more trouble than it's worth. As such, I’ve only been able to blog because I’ve been financial stable enough to do so, and, well, that exactly hasn’t been the case for me recently. Right now, I need to prioritize making money, and that means making this blog less of a priority.

As of now, I’m going to be focusing mostly on my Statist and Anarchist comics, trying to finish up the storyline and what have you. Other than that, there’s not going to be much on this blog as of now.

HOWEVER…

I’m currently setting up another major project, specifically another blog. What am I trying to accomplish? Well, I figured that since my main blog has been writing about things that depress me (politics) with the occasional things that don’t (MLP, video games, other entertainment), I’ve figured setting myself apart with a venue where I can write about something that I like.

What is that exactly? Well, I’ll announce that tomorrow.

I know you're pretty much unofficially done with the game of political debate and analysis and that we don't talk much anymore, but despite our increasing obvious disagreements over a great deal of topics over the recent years I just wanted to let you know that even now I still care enough to remember...
