Need to just vent

May 11, 2012
Warning this post is mostly a rant (mostly about religion [you can't discuss religion with most of the people here as they are not at all open minded and just get mad if you say something that contradicts what they believe] so you are forewarned)and is not ordered very well.

This past Tuesday NC had their primaries. On the ballot was an amendment (Amendment One as it's known) to change the state constitution to say the one recognized domestic relationship in the state is marriage between one man and one woman basically. I voted against it but it still overwhelmingly passed.

What gets me is the fact that gay marriage is primarily a religious issue and according to the US Constitution religious laws are not to be passed. If you point this out to the people here they say this country was founded on christian values and that there should not be a separation between church and state.

This country's founding may have a ton of christian values intertwined with it but if they founding fathers had wanted us to become a religious state they would not have come up with the first amendment. They saw how most European countries treated people (most at the time we church states) and how well that was going and they wanted to ensure that it did not happen to our country.

Then I point out that the Bible (which is the religious book of Christianity) has a whole ton of shit that people are not to do. Don't believe me read the first 5 books of the old testament. Many of the things God told us not to do are done by christians the world over on a daily basis. My opinion on that and how it relates to gay marriage is if you are going to pick and choose which parts of the Bible you are going to obey and which parts you are going to disregard you can't really persecute people who disobey the parts you obey. For instance I am going to cheat on my husband, steal from my former company and make my mother my puppet by telling her if she makes me mad I won't let her see my kids again but homosexuality is against the bible so you can't get married and you are going to hell. Um FYI adultery, stealing and being a douche to your parents also violate the Bible. In fact your three are all against the 10 commandments which most Christians at least in NC believe are the only 10 laws of the Bible you have to abide by (except homosexuality) whereas homosexuality isn't even mentioned in the 10 commandments. You can't pick and choose and then oppress people who also pick and choose but have different choices.

I am not talking about murder and stealing and other crimes like that as there have laws on the books about criminal acts for thousands and thousands of years. Those are common sense and religion has nothing to do with that.

The way I feel about this amendment is that okay homosexuality is against the Bible but laws about it are religious based. If we are going to start passing laws and amendments based on a religion we need to ban everything which is banned in the Bible and everything banned in any other religion in the world. That means for men haircuts are illegal and shaving is illegal. We can no longer eat pork or rabbit or beef and any other food banned by any religion. Clothing blended of 2 or more materials is now illegal. Lying: illegal. Treating aliens from other countries badly: illegal. Pre-marital sex: illegal. Alcohol: illegal. Tattoos: illegal. Smoking: illegal. Caffeine: illegal. I think you see where this is going.

The other thing that pisses me off about the amendment is that NC has statutes banning gay marriage already. Most crimes are not mentioned in the Constitutions of any state. By passing this amendment NC as a state has told the world that gay marriage is worse than any crime not mentioned in the constitution. I honestly believe most people realize it isn't worse so my suggestion here is that we need to pass an amendment that includes every criminal law in the state to the constitution.

Well it's bed time so I will go but I may rant more later. One final note I am ashamed to live in NC.
 

Stupid navy leadership strikes again

January 2, 2011
I just saw this article and video on the internet about the current CO of the Enterprise when he was the XO. It's about the videos he made to entertain the crew. Here is the link http://hamptonroads.com/2010/12/raunchy-videos-starring-enterprise-skipper-come-light. I personally didn't find the video offensive. Stupid yes but offensive no. I can however see how someone could see them as offensive. I am not here to write about how offensive or inoffensive the video is. The bigger problem I see ...

Sorry about the neglect

August 15, 2010
Well it's been a few months since I did anything to my blog. But I assumed no one read it and it was mainly a means for me to vent and whatnot. Well today I found out I have subscribers. That was quite surprising. So I figured I would do a little update.

Crystal is pregnant again. We found out a bit ago that it is a boy. He is due 1/11/11. Hopefully he is born at 11:11:11 am because that would be awesome.

Been working at Dupont since May 18th. Life is good out there. No duty, 8 hour days, no go...

Update on post Navy life

April 28, 2010
So since getting out of the navy life has been pretty busy. I have filed for unemployment and applied for numerous jobs. I have taken a test for a job at DuPont. I have been gardening and started a new bonsai then my old bonsai died. All my herbs and most of my peppers have sprouted. But the thing that has lifted the most weight off my shoulders is yesterday I had my interview with DuPont. There was 3 applicants and we got a tour of the facility followed by a panel interview. This morning I w...

Finally out

April 15, 2010
So I finally made it out of the navy. I honestly can't say whether I would do it again given the chance. Yeah it wasn't especially fun but it has helped me in ways outside of the navy and it helped me be a great judge of character but again I had to deal with a whole ton of BS for the last 4 years of it. I am definitely glad to finally be done with it.

Leaving Japan

March 13, 2010
I should be leaving Japan finally on Thursday the 18th. Then I get to spend a week and a half or so in Bangor, WA before the navy flies me back to Idaho. I will be in ID for a few days before finally returning to my family in Winterville, NC. Things are really looking up for this branch of the family tree. I have a very good job opportunity which I should interview for shortly after returning home but if I don't get that job I will just start school this fall with the GI Bill. If I get the jo...

Global Warming, Ice caps melt people die!!!!!! or not?

February 23, 2010
So I had just finished cleaning rooms at work today and was sitting in the office on a break when I had my first stoke of brilliance that I knew I needed to write down since about 2005 or 2006 and here it is:
---
As ocean levels begin to rise when the ice caps melt the people of the world should grab any plastic container with a seal-able lid they can find, the bigger the better. These containers are then filled with water and sealed. After the sealing you just bury the bottle underground. Ever...

No smoking please

February 4, 2010
So last week I started taking the stop smoking pill Chantix and today is my official quit date where I actually try to quit smoking. I hope this works as I really don't like smoking and it is expensive as hell. The drug works by blocking the nicotine receptors in the brain so you don't feel the effects of the nicotine and it releases a small amount of dopamine (the "reward" hormone) throughout the day to make up for the decrease in dopamine release (nicotine causes your body to release the re...

Stephen King

January 3, 2010
I just finished reading "Under the Dome" by Stephen King and it made me realize why I like most of his books so much. Most of his books are 99% building up to the climax then 1% resolution and conclusion. He doesn't answer all the questions which leaves the reader wondering the rest and wanting more. It keeps us coming back. I suppose thats the same reason I like Lost and Heroes they spend a season or in the case of Lost, the whole series, building up and conclude at the very end with questio...

Stupid people

December 27, 2009
In case no one told any of the people who read this blog. Anything I say about anyone in this blog is my OPINION. If I rant about certain things you aren't good at it doesn't mean you are a bad person and I dislike you I am just saying there are some things that could use some work. I had some people on the ship that I hated working for but outside of work we would hang out without issue but at work there were issues. I love my daughter but even though I have never seen her in a leadership po...

About Me


Hmmm. I am(was) a sailor in the US navy but I am also one of the few sailors that can actually sail a sailboat since I have one of those. I am no longer in the navy but I will leave the last line there to get the veteran vote. I now work at Dupont as a Power control room operator. The biggest hobby of mine at the present time is picking locks and I am slowly getting better at it. I am currently looking for materials to build my own welder to teach myself how to weld. I am married to Crystal and we have one daughter and we are having a son soon (or if you read this after Januaryish 2011 we a son). Yeah not much to say.
