Goodness Gracious, Great Balls Of Fire...

First, it was an unidentified projectile shooting skyward from San Diego, Ca. The news media are tying to placate people's fears by telling us that it was an airplane leaving a contrail. Excuse me, but when do airplanes take off into the sky at such a steep angle?

Now, it's an unidentified streak of fire across the NYC skyline. An astronomer says this, too, is an airplane's contrail. I don't know about this one either, because contrails I've seen stretched halfway across the open sky. This one looks too short to be a contrail.

I think there's a government cover-up as to what these two unidentified flying objects were. Call me nuts, but if we are being visited by extraterrestrials, I'd like to know. If we're being attacked by terrorists, I'd like to know that, too.

*Edit: One of the bloggers I read, who lives near Luke AFB, which is east of the San Diego contrail, took pictures of it and blogged about it. She said the unidentified object came from the west and then went straight up in the air after heading east for a bit, and it kept going straight up. So, no frickin' way that thing was a jet airliner.

**Edit: News story has it that it was a Chinese missile launched from a Chinese submarine.

Life Is Change; Change Is Life

Ever since the election, which had been a referendum on Obama's failed economic policies, my spirits have been slightly uplifted and there is real hope on the horizon. It's going to take a lot of time to fix everything that the Obama administration broke, which they thought was a fix to what they thought was broke in the first place, but really wasn't.

It's going to take time for the economy to recover from Obama's disastrous policies. Jobs are few and far between and nobody's looking to hire anyone in the architecture industry with real-world experience. It's coming up on 2 years now and I'm still trying to find a job in what I went to school for.

However, I had received and invite from my very good friend, to go on down to Virginia for a few days and look for work down there. If I find a job, I'll be moving out of the Empire State - an empire of idiotic politicians that do nothing but tax and spend, and then wonder why the state is bankrupt, especially when the people they want to tax the most are business owners who can't afford these policies.

I'll be leaving most of my family behind, although I do have an older brother who lives in Maryland. I don't talk to him at all, and I probably won't bother to visit him either. You can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family. However, you can choose to ignore the ones that made your life a living hell growing up, and he did just that. I've long since forgiven him, and I would be there in a heartbeat if he was in trouble, but other than that, I'd rather not have to deal with him. He tends to go off on his high-horse and look down on everyone. It also doesn't help him that he's extremely arrogant and can't admit when he's wrong. So you can imagine trying to have a conversation with him, when his mind's already made up about this, that or the other thing. Yeah, not going to go visit him.

So, anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, moving down to Virginia. Isn't it sad that in order for me to exercise my 2nd Amendment rights, I have to move out of one state in the Union into another? Before I make my move, I'm going to have to a tonneau cover installed on my truck so I can pack up all my guns and ammo and bows and arrows and get them all down to Virginia in one trip, and then come back, rent a U-Haul truck with a vehicle trailer and move the rest of my stuff down. Or, if mileage is free, I'll just rent the U-Haul down there and use that instead. It's gonna be a lot of work, but it'll be well worth it in the end. Wish me luck.
