Updated 20152909 Note to self: This place needs a tidying up in the far near distance future that’s just around the corner.
I am one of those people that fall into the category of not liberal enough for liberals, not conservative enough for conservatives, so that of course throws me in a category in most people’s minds like to categorize as being libertarian. We argue about labels, the one thing most people don’t want is to be labeled by others. All I can tell you is:
I’m an advocate for the safety net. It partially saved me, along with A LOT of support from my family as well. So it’s not like the safety net is a complete free ride.
I’m an advocate for mental health, which largely what got me caught up in the safety net. Bi-Polar disorder. The classic melancholy artist’s syndrome.
I haven’t cut any body parts off yet though. shudders
I’m an advocate for the Constitution.
I’m an advocate for firearms. Pew Pew.
I’d would rather err on the side of life on both issues, abortion and the death penalty. I support states rights though to decide for themselves what is okay in their states. Not a decree from on high by the Federal Government what to do with complicated issues.
I’m an advocate for legalization of soft drugs. I’m an advocate for personal responsibility with what you put in your body, what you eat, drink, or smoke. We just keep finding ways to make more minor criminals today out of people who were obeying the laws yesterday as if we don’t have enough serious law-breakers already.
I’m an advocate for getting the government out of deciding who is and isn’t married, period. As far as I can see all they are concerned with is your “fair” share of taxes.
Which leads to:
I’m an advocate of a flat-tax, consumption tax kind of thing.
When they give the Krewe of Chewbaccus legal status as a religion and can claim tax-free status (kudos to them), it shows how serious the government takes any of our religions. How serious do you think they take your marriages?
I eat meat and vegetables, Ohmnomnomnom.
Not a fan of hunting for sport though, however I do like to fish. In tough times I can do what I need to do to feed my family. We’ll probably be eating a lot of fish.
I’m a cat person, dogs slobber too much.
Oh..I try to be ope-minded about the paranormal, and alien life, conspiracy subjects.
I’ve never seen a UFO. I would think we would have caught something more compelling with this generation of everybody has video/camera/phone in their hand by now. So who knows?
I heard my name called by something I couldn’t see on several occasions in my youth, in two different locations for sure. I think I tried to forget some of experiences and shrug them off. Also, having had it happen several times, the multiple memories of the events may merge across each other. I can’t say it was paranormal. All I can say is I couldn’t find any explanations at the times they occurred, and was left with my head scratching.
Is it just a brain misfire of a growing youth? Shrugs
It was a simple thing though, that has troubled me ever since. I sometimes wish it hadn’t happened. I know there are many of you that have had simple experiences too, not the crazy over-the-top garbage you see on television.
I was raised in a Southern Baptist home, but I don’t attend church or practice presently.
I’m in Limbo with the subject. Ask most Christians if they believe in the paranormal? When I’ve approached people about the concept of ghosts. I usually get vehement denial of any such thing. So my name wasn’t called by a ghost then. So basically it’s either of Heaven or Hell, or it didn’t happen at all.
Oh great, that’s comforting. I’d rather think it was a ghost honestly. :)
I am though politically sensitive to the smearing sometimes of Christians as a whole by some in our society and media. I know most are good people, just practicing their faith the best way they know how.
I am just as opposed to any smearing of any majority in a group with the sins of a minority within their group, who also turn out at times to even be plants.
So whatever that makes me, I think I hit most of the big issues most people want to know about a person in this current political climate.
Due to drastic changes in life around here, doing a drudgy type front page is just not possible at this time. I will have to resort to more re-blogs and automation.
Just a brief F.Y.I. – I have become a single parent due to the death of my son’s mother. Now would be an excellent time to show any support through donations.
This blog has never been to be about my life, just an outlet for my news junkiness, and artwork. People want to know what they are supporting.
A single parent and this website would be what you are supporting.
Internet costs have gone up and up. I refuse to get cable and I am penalized for not bundling. You know the story.
SuddenUnLink now limits bandwidth usage per month, when I signed up way back when of course it was for unlimited. All that has changed. I have hit my cap 3 months in a row just trying to do this website, provide something interesting for people to see, and represent Central Louisiana.
I make plenty from WordAds to keep the LouisianaWorld.Net, and BattleOfOurTimes.Com domain names registered. I do not make enough to help pay for the costs of any streaming I try to do, anything that affects my bandwidth usage, etc. I do not make any profit whatsoever in the long run.
I just try to provide a wide range of Louisiana News from a wide number of sources, and also news from Pop Culture, Entertainment, Music, Art, Science, Astronomy, Gaming, etc., subjects that I find interesting, amusing, perplexing, informative, chuckle worthy, or make you O_o possibly, at times, many times perhaps. I don’t really like politics, but I try to stomach as much as I can to stay as informed as one who cannot stomach much can be informed about politics.
I am looking at all this garbage anyway, and I might as well tweet it, poke it, thumb it, or something. People like pushing buttons, copying and pasting things, poking things, thumbing things, taking polls, and having as many things spoon fed to them as possible, without a spoon.
I am not responsible for what some people might say on Twitter/Social Media that show up in embeds I use like RebelMouse, or Totally.Me. Hashtags like #Louisiana will sometimes bring up vulgar items into the stream. #Alexandria brings up a lot of stuff from Virginia, and Egypt. I’m waiting for #Tioga to pop up.
#CenLa = Central Louisiana #CenLA = Central Los Angeles
It doesn’t get much more vulgar than that. ;)
It does make for an interesting read.
What you saw.
What you missed.
Poor dilapidated “River City Market”.
WordAds help keep LouisianaWorld.Net stay open.
Optimistic pessimistic ‘procrastinistic’ opportunistic skeptical believer.
I have lived and have visited all over these here United States.
I was born in New Orleans.
Here is, to the best of my recollection; all the states I have resided in:
I have visited or passed through many many others…
One thing I have learned…a city is a city is a city. A town is a town.
It is also fair to say, I did not have your typical childhood.
People who know me personally may be very surprised to learn some of the many different jobs I have worked to pay the bills. Jack-of-all-trades master of none kind of thing.
I have worked in the restaurant industry, I have delivered pizzas for Domino’s and Pizza Hut. I worked for Dairy Queen as an assistant manager. I worked for a day at Popeye’s.
I’ve worked in convenience stores, a liquor store, a drugstore.
I have delivered newspapers both on foot and from a car.
I have been a welder’s helper, a fireguard, a safety guard (which is just a fireguard who knows C.P.R.) I’ve been a tankerman, and a roustabout.
I’ve worked in the asbestos abatement industry.
I’ve worked at a foundry.
I’ve pulled a 40′ reefer cross country.
I’ve cleaned banks.
I’ve done cold calling.
I have worked in a prescription safety eyeglass factory.
I’ve parked cars.
Just to name a bunch.
I don’t talk about a lot these things much because people tend to not believe you. There are so many men who run around embellishing or even lying about things to make themselves seem more than they truly are, while trying to impress the ladies. When an honest person starts to talk about things they know or have done in the past, many people will assume you are making it all up for the same reason, I don’t think having a lot of different jobs is something impressive.
I also look very youthful for my age, and at each new job I get treated like it’s my first job and that I haven’t a clue what I’m doing. I just go with the flow.
It’s frustrating, but that’s life.
I am not a burly man so many find it hard to believe that I have worked at some very physically demanding jobs.
I am not saying that I was good at all those jobs, but I have done those jobs.
I don’t know everything, you learn every day until you die. However many people like to think they are educating me on things I already am familiar with, and when I try to point this out from time to time, they just plain think you’re making it up.
I may have fell off the cabbage truck, but it wasn’t yesterday.
If there is anything I can truly educate people on, it’s what not to do.
My general rules for art: Keep it simple, keep it cute, keep it poignant.
Yes, I am a Conservative Liberatarianishy Republican…deal with it.
I simply try to aggregate Louisiana news…I write a short piece here and there…but mostly I try to bundle up in one place a butt trove of Louisiana related stories…I have been forced to basically in an attempt to stay as informed as I can.
So yeah whatever…
I was the Cartoonist for my High School Newspaper thingy for a period of time…one of the things I drew was a cartoon of Elvis…and the rest is history… in the making…oh, and I’m an expert on cartooning, newspapers, and thingies and such becuz I got that hi skool public education…or despite being a cartoonist for the hi skool papr…or something…and because, most importantly: Brick Waffllermann told me I was an expert.
A few things I have done…
I don’t run or own PicklesTime.Com any more.
I was featured a few times back in the early days of Breitbart TV. One of the silly things I did was the “One man fist-bump”. I also drew this Pink Panther. I sent it to Scott and Liz had it framed.
THE MIDDLE MAN
“You and I are told increasingly we have to choose between a left or right. Well, I’d like to suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There’s only an up or down…”
Are you so far to one side you can’t see the center?
