Who the hell is this pissed off citizen?!

I figured, to get this blog started I should probably kick it off with somewhat of an introduction.

I’ve never been into blogs, thought at first they were kind of stupid. I looked at them basically as an online diary being viewed by the whole world. To me at least, that is how they seemed to start. I never saw it going to the levels it has today where, with everyday, they’re more and more becoming responsible for the publics discourse.

I’m not going to ramble on about blogs ( or blogging ) but I’ll try to sum it up in a nutshell where I’m coming from with my views and comments on things.

Born and raised in the Bronx, I come from a family of political figures, activists, war heroes & persecuted individuals. I can’t go into too much detail other than I always hated politics and never understood the anger between people because of the topics, until now. 

The older I got, the more I began to get into studying and reading historical/political books. Everything from ( don’t jump when I say this ) Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kempf to Noam Chomsky’s Hegemony or Survival: America’s Quest for Global Dominance (The American Empire Project). 

Personally, I don’t feel one can argue or debate politics if they don’t know ( or understand ) both sides of the story. That wouldn’t be fair and balanced lol ( pun intended ).

As far as political figures, it should come as no surprise when I tell you that I am a strong supporter of Ron Paul. No offense to anyone that might take a look at this when I say this ( by the way, I’m going to piss off a lot of you at times but I’m pissed myself so I’m being generous in doing so by wanting you to join my club lol ) It seems that the more ” educated ” voter would be going with someone Like Ron Paul and not jump onto the popularity wagon of going for Obama or Hillary.

It is sad how the country has gone throughout the years with the Republican party becoming the new Facisct party & the Democrats not too far off but more on the Socialist side.

In conclusion, I am not some professor of political science, nor’ am I some scholar of sorts. I am just the pissed of citizen with a blog who wants to let loose so, expect some harsh words ( explicit at times so make sure you’re 18 & over  ) and criticisms from yours truly.
