A World with no what?!?!

First of the new year time to start breaking some resolutions right? WRONG! Nah, I'm just kidding... I could care less whether or not you made New Year's Resolutions. I stopped making them because I always wind up breaking them within the first week or so (sometimes within two days). So I'd figured, I'd try to explain what my political philosophy and group is all about. So before I begin to rattle off my philosophy... ah forget about it... yet's just get started.

If anyone has played the realistic flight-combat simulation series that is know as the Ace Combat, they would know about the political (and sometimes terrorist) organizations in the games. Well... one of the organizations in Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War, is known as: "A World Without Boundaries". The "terrorist" group consists of individuals who are multi-ethnic and mutli-national people with like-minded ideals. The groups' sole purpose is pretty much "destroy" the borders that nations are comprised of. These individuals (in the game), believe that diplomacy has failed, and will always fail, due to a lack of trust between people, greed and xenophobia (or the fear of other races, nationalities, creeds, etc.). And for the most part they are right (and wrong) in their assertions about diplomacy not working. Yes it [diplomacy] does work up to a certain extent, but after that action is needed, and that action is most likely war. The organization's sole goal was to create a global state through violence and destruction.

So what does that mean for my philosophy? Well I share some common ideals with this fictional terrorist organization, but the rest I drastically differ. Yes, I believe that diplomacy does not work. Based on the assertions that people are greedy, xenophobic, and dishonest bastards that are only looking out for themselves. I do believe that borders need to be eliminated. Borders, and boundaries, label people as this or that. So, for example: the border between the United States of America and Canada, labels people on the Canadian side as "Canadians", and the those on the other side (the U.S.A.) as "Americans". So how am I an "American", and yet my friend in Toronto is a "Canadian"? We are both from the same Continent, North America. So would that make us both "Americans. That's why I believe we need to get rid of borders of nations. The borders label people as a certain nationality or ethnicity, but diminish the fact that the people within those borders are of a nationality greater than that of a label: we are a global people. Not Amercian, not Canadian, European, Russian, Asian, Austrailian, African, or whatever other nation's nationality.

How my organization/ political philososphy differs from that of the game's organization; is that I not willing to go that far. I mean come on... to go as far as to nuke the whole world? NAH... DUDE! We're nothing more than eighteen- to nineteen year olds with radical thinking and the freedom of speech (thanks to the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights). We may think about those philosophies, but not go as far as to blow up every nation.

My organization does not care about race, nationality, or any "identifying" information. We meet solely to bring trust back into our world. We believe that trust is vital in a peaceful world. But the fact is, we know that the world will never peaceful, as long as people don't trust each other, greed fans the flames, and people fight over the smallest of things.

The fact is: countries don't change, it's the people in those countries who desire change, it's the people who change. The people who desire peace must be willing to accept this change, and without this change there is no peace.

"No matter what the desired outcome is, the world can still change, as long as people expand their knowledge and desire change."

"There is no Nation of You,
There is no Nation of Me,
Our only Nation exists in Lucid Dreams"

But the question needs to asked: do we really need to get rid of borders? I believe that we should try to find out what their volution really is.

First of the Month...

AH... December... my favorite month of the entire year. You got Christmas, that Jewish holiday that's hard to say, if your Canadian: Boxing Day, and if your African: Kwanzaa. Look I'm not going to be P.C. (that's Politically Correct for you ignorant dingbats) and go out of my way just to say "Happy Holidays" or "Seasons Greetings". No. I'm going to say, "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Hanukkah" (sorry Jewish people if I misspelled it) to you. And if you don't celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, oh well... I'll ask what December holiday you do celebrate and wish you a happy (insert December holiday here) and a happy and health new year, because that's the way I am. People get way too offended in this country to a point where it is making me sick. What ever happened to being blunt?


You there, whelp!
Merry Christmas, young person.
What!?! I'm offended, jerk! I'm Jewish! Don't celebrate Christmas or any Catholic or Christian holiday, prick!
Well... I'm sorry but get over it! Offended by a simple holiday message!

End Scene.

What's next? People in country becoming offended by the term "American"? Back in the day people used to get called by slang terms: mick, spud, jerry, mac, polack, kraut, etc. and not get offended (well when called that within their own ethnic background). But let's face it... this country has become emasculated. Sullied by feminism, this country has slowly moved towards becoming less of a "male-ego" to a "female-ego" country, where people are offended if they don't get the same pay, rights, called a certain title, etc. I wish people were more like me: indifferent towards people of all races, genders, ethnicities, creeds. If I'm an employer I look for ability in a potential employees not race, skin color, ethnicity, creed, gender, etc.

Here's my explanation of my proof:
1. All people are equal regardless of race, gender, creed, ethnic background, physical and/or mental capabilities, age, or anything else.
2. Hire on ability and nothing else
3.If you want equal pay, rights, and a title, you have to work for. That means you might actually have to work hard! (Gasp!)
4. Everyone starts out with equal pay (e.x. $20/hr.), equal breaks (2), equal payraises, equal everything (down to the parking space)
5. When hired and employed there are work-based incentives. Meaning, the harder you work, the more likely you are to get paid more, get longer breaks, better parking, etc..
6. Raises in pay are based on quality of work, not amount
7. No guts, no glory
8. Everyone has the basic consitutional right of freedom of speech, the right to privacy, right to speak their mind without fear whiplash from their comments.
9. No matter what everything is incentive based. If you want more money, etc. you have to work for it. I not just going to give it to you, just because some unconstitutional law says I have to.
10. Hard work, diligence, and the strive for excellence is a must. Must be willing to work for it.

That's what this country needs. No more of this feminist shit. We need to stop expecting everything to be handed to us and actually work for it. That's how you change a country's thinking. The laws in the U.S.C (United States Code of Laws), has catered to everything being handed to us, not have to work for anything.

Peace. Signed,

The General and Leader of A World With No Boundaries,
Brian McCollum

P.S. If I offend anyone by my thinking, rember this: I'm NOT Sorry. You need to deal with it.
PS.S More to come, stick around... don't miss my holiday edition of Mac's Business. More on my Political Group: A World With No Boundaries to come

Later... Peace.

Need a Quarterback?

Dude, I am sick of hearing about the Philadelphia Eagles problems. Their O-Line is too small, McNabb sucks, Andy Reid can't coach, Westbrook ain't big enough... the list goes on... (and on and on and on and on and on and you get the picture). I especially can't stand the Philadelphia sports writer who blow every single, little, solitary thing out of proportion. For example, when the Phillies had fired Larry Bowa and brought in Charlie Manuel, they were expecting championship first year that Charlie is in office. The finish third four games back, one out of the wild card. The chant from the sportswriters: "Fire Charlie". The next year: Phillies finish second, one back. half a game out of the wild card. Do you see where this is going? 2007: the Phillies clinch their Division (the National League Eastern Division aka NLE, NL East, etc.) on the last game of the year, but lose to the Rockies in the Division Series. The chant from the sportswriters of Philadelphia: "Oh... wait a minute! Maybe he [Charlie] is the guy." 2008: Phillies win their Division (again) on the second to last game of the regular season, beat the Brewers to clinch the Divisional Series; beat MAN-RAM and the LA Dodgers to clinch their first National League Pennant in over fifteen years. and finally, the conclusion of my rant: the Phillies head to their first World Series in over twenty-five some-odd years, and beat the Tampa Bay Rays, to clinch their first World Series title in over twenty years. The sportswriters reaction: "We're so sorry Charlie about all those nasty thing we've said about you over the years. Can you ever forgive us?"

If I was Charlie Manuel, and I just heard that reaction from the sports press: I'd tell them writers to go [expletive] off, you no-good [expletive] sons-of-a-[expletives].

Sorry about that... just had to get something off my chest about the sportswriters in my city.

So were was I... damn I forgot... oh well more next time...

Now batting number 1... the First Post!

Okay... so I am kinda new to this sh... I mean stuff. Let's face it people... we are in a recession, although our "competently trained monkey" of a President (referring to Dubyah) says we are not. Yeah, and I'm the next Cy Young. Now to help the banking industry up we (our government) decides to create a Bailout Bill (yes, yes the one that's over 750 billion dollars you keep on hearing more and more about) to "bail out" the banks. If it wasn't for the banks handing out bad loans to people, who if the banks actually DID THEIR JOBS and performed a credit-background check on these people (who they knew that these people could not pay these loans back), we would not have this problem. Herein lies "El problemo" with the Bailout bill. You are basically giving these CEO's of these bank companies a blank check which it's the most glorious day of the week: PAYDAY!!!

Even though, these CEO's went to Congress and stated that "We aren't going to use one cent of the 750 billion to pay our salaries. Yeah, right that's a big, steaming pile of bullshit! Oh, and by the way... I'm STILL the next Cy Young (in my mind yes... but in reality... yeah, I'm going to have to get back to you (that means no)). I realize that this blog is just restating everything that everyone is saying, and is amateur at best... but we all have to start somewhere. Oh and uh... sorry bout the language, I feel that... ah... who cares you get the picture.

I am starting to get a clear and clairvoyant (don't ask me what it means... buy a dictionary and look it up!!!) picture of why this country is in the shit that is in. We are supposed to be an economic powerhouse... but when the biggest three auto-makers in the country are being out sold by them there japs (japs referring to Japanese auto-makers), we have a problem here. Again, sorry bout the language...

Why can't we all just choose a president with experience, guile, strength... and a cool southern drawl with a cool World Series ring to boot. Charlie Manuel in 2012!!!

Peace. Signed,
The General of A World With No Boundaries,
Brian McCollum.

P.S. more to come. stick around


sorry about the total randomness of this post
