Greetings in Blogger land. Altho, I don't know how many other bloggers will see this because searching for other blogs is near impossible on this site. That was one of the great things about Blogstream, if I wanted to find other current event or liberal blogs, they were easy to look up.
So, how did I become Red Mosquito? Well, I wanted to drop the Life of Bryan for a while, but you can't change that once you start on blogstream. I chose this name from a Pearl Jam song, big surprise. The song Red Mosquito, is about a guy locked in a room and being bugged and bitten by a red mosquito which he believes is the devil reminding him that he's waiting for him. Does that mean I think I'm the devil? I don't know, I just thought it was cool. "I was bitten, must have been the devil, he was just paying me...a little visit, reminding me of his presence, letting me know, he's waiting for me...."
For those who are not familiar with my blog, I will tell you about me. I'm a thirty-something father of two, I'm a working class guy, I'm married and have a dog, cats and gray hair. I hate George Bush, I wish he were dead, but he's not President anymore, thanks for term limits because this country is moronic enough to have voted for him again. Oh yes, I am not a conservative. I hate hypocrisy and the right wing is full of it! I will point this out often, because I can. They feel that if 'God's Plan" is for a girl to get gang raped and have her rapists baby then who are we to question it, but if "God's Plan" is for a man to murder an entire family then that is wrong and we must kill him. See? Hypocrisy. I say kill em all, fuck it.
I'm not religious. I am spiritual. I don't believe in organized religion, they are cults. I think religion should be a personal thing with no rules. What you believe doesn't have to be what I believe. I respect others views, but I don't always agree. I don't think going to a building and praying to a dead guy does anything, not for me anyway, but if that's what floats your boat, go for it. I don't like the Catholic church and I despise Evangelists. I will point this out often too.
People call me a liberal, whatever, I don't think that's true but whatever. I believe in the death penalty, I think thieves should have their hands cut off, and I believe in the three strike rule for violent offenders. I support unions, tho I do not belong to one. I support teachers, I think No Child Left Behind is stupid. I don't like illegal immigrants, get the fuck out, you are illegal. I am pro-choice, I am anti attacking Iraq for no reason. I don't mind guns, but I don't like 30 round magazines in a semi automatic weapon, I'm sorry if you need this you are a criminal, go to jail, do not pass go. If you want a revolver next to your bed to help you sleep that's fine, don't go to Shop Rite with it.
Well, that's me, in a nutshell. Welcome to the world of the Red Mosquito....
