      PLEASE…STOP…ASSOCIATING…N’SYNCin PARK with METAL. THEY ARE NOT METAL…You insult every metalhead when you say they are “Metal” in any way. They are a pop or melodic rock band (doesn’t sound badass…but thats the music they play). The heaviest thing about the band is the guitars whose riffs aren’t particularly technical or heavy. Not that theres anything wrong with that…its appropriate for their musical style. Don’t get me wrong…I like a fair bit of their music for what it is. Pop…mainstream…heavy melodic rock. I don’t discount that its good music (not GREAT…but good). With a few really good songs that gets my head bobbing.
      But I certainly can’t headbang or mosh to it…not with Justin Bieber and Vanilla Ice doing vocals plus a DJ scratching and rock-style drumming. Doesn’t get my blood pumping. So if you want to listen to bands that have earned the right to be called METAL…try Meshuggah, Dying Fetus, Carcass, Emperor, Sepultura, Metallica, Veil of Maya, Dark Funeral, etc. etc. ad infinitum.  Thank you…try the veal.

      I am going to just speak an opinion. I am not out to make fun of any particular side…but make observations and follow it with my humble opinion. There will be some exaggerations but thats just the way I think. It probably won’t happen that way…but that doesn’t necessarily mean it CAN’T happen.  I personally think that with the amount of pure hatred running through the veins of the people who absolutely DETEST Obama and Liberals…that America truly deserves its next Great Depression to give people some perspective. Mitt Romney might just give that well needed lesson to America. It will be very painful…exponentially more Americans will suffer…there is a chance America may never recover from it…but sometimes you just need to hit rock bottom to realise how foolish you have been and all the mistakes you’ve made and all the bold-faced lies you believed (and kept believing). Like an abusive boyfriend…it might just take being hospitalised to finally wake up and realise he (for this instance…say Fox News) is a liar and will never stop lying and will continue to abuse you if you let him.  When nearly EVERY other News network contradicts much of Fox News reports…and Fox’s ONLY response for this disparity is “The Mainstream Media are Biased”. You MUST at least suspect “Hey…is One News Network REALLY the ONLY one willing to tell the truth while every other news network are lying??”  The rest of the world will also suffer with America’s fall from the top…but they will pick up and carry on the torch of leading the world in scientific, technological advances while America spins its wheels and regresses as religion restricts scientific research in America. And the Intelligent design that will be taught in schools prevents the next generation from becoming scientists. When your president wears “Magic Mormon Underwear”…its never a good sign for logical and scientific thinking. Just saying.  So that’s my 2 cents. 2 possibilities… Obama elected…America continues the long, hard and slow road to recovery. To have expectations that Obama can fix EVERYTHING in the 4 years when the country was nosediving toward a depression was a bit naïve. Romney elected…religion and big corporations take the drivers seat in America. America de-evolves several decades and rights are lost for many (women, LGBT)…technological advances will begin to be made in other countries. The most brilliant scientific minds no longer wish to immigrate to America as there will be less use for their scientific genius. If anything I suspect a slow exodus of the scientific community moving to countries who value science. The belief that we’re all in this together is replaced with everyone for themselves…if you’re poor…you have NO chance of making your lives better because all the power lies with the rich who control everything with their ‘contributions’. So the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.  In either case…America…whomever you elect…you will truly deserve the fate that befalls you and you can’t blame ANYONE else…you made your bed…you get to lie in it for 4 years. Perhaps after experiencing this (possible) traumatic event…you will awaken from your partisan trance and realise you are all Americans and should work together to build a better future for ALL Americans and the future generation instead of pointing fingers and sabotaging any progress due to politics or different beliefs. If you can’t share this world…neither of you deserves to have it. HAPPY VOTING!!

      Withholding releasing incomplete information before a more thorough investigation is complete is your idea of a cover up?  They just released more information. Read it thoroughly:
      http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2012/11/02/164140811/u-s-offers-new-details-of-deadly-libya-attack It seems they did everything possible and the Embassy wasn’t denied help. They can’t just drop bombs into a populated area…the civilian death toll would have been criminal (and the Republicans would blame Obama for that too). So it seems the Embassy wasn’t overrun…the Ambassador died of smoke inhalation in the safe room, 2 others died because an RPG managed to make it into the grounds. There were no armed drones nearby. No Spectre gunships in range. And no way of targeting just the aggressors without taking a lot of civilian life.  The lone CIA operative who rushed in who mistakenly thought they were ordered to stand down (and rushed in and got himself killed) would have had a better chance of surviving if he’d waited 24 minutes because the rest of his team weren’t standing down but were getting heavier machine guns and preparing to go help. These CIA guys aren’t weekend warriors…they’re professionals…and professionals don’t just rush in unprepared to a extremely hostile situation. I’m saddened that the lone CIA operative lost his life for trying to save his fellow Americans…what he did was heroic. But this isn’t a Hollywood movie…one man can’t fight an entire army of people by himself.  It is infuriating (but not surprising) that FOX news is trying to pin the blame of his death squarely on Obama.

      Its funny how a lot of Americans blame China for the low standards of safety and not the American companies that don’t care about how safe the product is…but how cheap it is so that they can make a massive profit. The Chinese aren’t coming up with these Halloween costumes for Americans…They haven’t a fuckin clue WTF Halloween is!! There is no Halloween in China. So its obvious that an American corporation (Spirit Halloween?) is ultimately accountable for the safety of their products. If they’re not making sure they’re safe before putting them on the shelves…then ITS THEIR FAULT!! A responsible company would make sure their product is safe…and will demand that the factory in China produces higher quality products (and would willingly pay more to ensure that). The fact is…greedy American corporations are producing these products at the cheapest factories they can find in China to maximise their profits and don’t give a toss about how safe they are. So when people find that they have high levels of lead…the first people they want to blame is China?? As long as there are greedy corporations willing to buy their products…they’ll keep making them. Stop using China as a scapegoat for all America’s problems. It’s pathetic.
