Steve Angry!

So last night I could not sleep and it was just terrible. I hope I'm still not on VidCon time a week after the fact. In any case, I may have to break down and take the evil Tylenol PM tonight to just force myself to sleep when my body doesn't want to.

Because I slept in, I had to run in the evening, and running has become more and more of a time for my brain to work in rapid-fire mode, and more and more this is where I get my video ideas. Today I just found myself getting angrier and angrier about the way politics are headed right now.

Some of you may not know this, but Florida right now has the worst campaign I have ever seen. I am not even exaggerating. I thought it was a tough choice between John Kerry and George Bush for who was the lesser of two evils, but this one really takes the cake. Unfortunately, I haven't really gathered my thoughts or done much research to be able to make a valid point, so I will not say much, but Rick Scott and Bill McCollum are both the very worst choices for Florida Governor I have ever seen. Fortunately they are both Republican, so I will only have to nix one in the final election. Come to think of it, I don't even know who's running for the Democratic party; all the focus has been on Scott vs. McCollum. See? I need to do my research.

Another issue that just gets my blood boiling is the Arizona Immigration Law. This is just such a clearly inhumane law that I cannot believe it was even considered, let alone passed. For those of you who are unaware, the law essentially states that the state government not only has a right to enforce immigration, but the way that it will do so is by requiring all immigrants to have their immigration papers on their person in order to surrender them should an officer be suspicious. First of all, the state does not have a right to do so. It is clearly stated in the constitution that only the federal government has the right and capacity to enforce international matters. Second of all, this is just straight-up racism and bigotry. What bothers me most is that these are the people who say they're protecting our freedoms and what not. Since when has it ever been protecting freedoms to require that anyone of a different skin color prove that they are, in fact, American? That's just awful.

Anyway, before I go on forever, I suppose I should gather my thoughts. Perhaps you'll see this again in video form. It just makes me want to punch someone in the face, that's all.

  1. I can understand where the immigration law is coming from. We have seasonal field workers 6 months out of the year, most who are illegal. I do think they deserve something for their hard work in the fields, doing jobs most people wouldn't even think of applying for. That said, my town has a big issue with people not learning English. If I was to move to another country, I would be expected to learn their language. The US should not be any different. Our school ratings are crap because no one will learn English and the schools cater to their language then complain they don't learn. I also have a hard time with them piling families up 12 people to a house with 9 different cars, not paying taxes, and me having to pay exorbitant amounts for medical care AFTER my insurance gives them massive amounts of money after watching illegals pay literally nothing.

  2. yeah, I generally don't like american government and as a Florida resident most people around me are shallow bigots. It's always comes down to greed and fear of what people don't understand. SO FREAKING STUPID STUPID STUPID. Anyway I prefer to stay away from it, and I know its good to be involved and stuff but if I do I want to rip my hair out.
