Day 302

my cousin graduates from the air force academy in may which, in his words, is anticipated as 'the best day of [his] life.' i'm hoping to be there that day in the stadium in colorado as joe biden delivers a speech and black caps are chucked towards the darting roars of a climactic air show.

should be good.

conversations swung around and around. future, family, places, etc. after the inevitable political section of our chat i went over to google to entertain some quite disconnected and merely musing curiosities that stemmed from our online dialogue. turns out that obama, clinton, and martha stewart have antichrist connotations linked to their positions. like i said, it was just for fun and i'm not making any big statements and will now decline further comment on all that.

i never really know how to answer probes for my personal political opinion. i joked and said that because of corporate and international agendas ''we will all be dead in a little while.'' maybe that automatically gives me a mix of the liberal rodeo with republican-fate syndrome. once again though, i'm not making any big statements in that sentence. none.

here is my big statement, however, if you're at all still curious and haven't started googling random things like i did at this point in our conversation earlier. they're not even my words, but the philosophy applies to more than trying to pick the 'lesser of evils' or whatever the political perspective has come down to these days.

"make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. 1 thessalonians 4:11-12.

that, to me, makes more sense than anything else.

Well put, I agree. that's all you need to worry about.
