Changes [Dec. 30th, 2016|10:25 pm]

I've been with LiveJournal for 15 years. I've posted over 6,800 journal entries, and received almost 22,000 comments. That's a lot, but my relationship with LJ may change very soon.

This article has disturbing news about how the administration of LiveJournal has been moved overseas, and all contents put under scrutiny. Speech may not be as free any more.

It was a shock to discover LJBook is no more. LJBook was a handy service that turned your LiveJournal blog into a .PDF file, with pictures and a table of contents and everything. It's been replaced with BlogBooker, of which I have no experience. I've been using LJBook for years to create handy hard-copy versions of my blog. The world has changed. Things are no longer as easy as they used to be.

I've been increasingly unhappy with LiveJournal, and now I am forced to think about moving my blog (such as it is) elsewhere. Therefore, for the time being, this may very well be my last LJ entry. It is not without a good deal of reluctance. Through good times and not-so-good times, this blog been a place where I could express myself, to say what I think, to be creative. I like to think it's been a place to inform, educate and perhaps entertain viewers... But as comfortable it may be to stay in a bad relationship, there comes a time where one must move on.

And sometimes, moving on isn't such a bad thing.

What happens when you have a nature documentary but dub in human screams for the animals?

The problem with the GOP's plan to replace Obamacare is that they're also planning huge tax cuts for rich folks, and without the revenue from those taxes, they won't have any money for whatever they're planning to replace Obamacare with.

Of course, if their plan is to hurt fellow Americans they don't like, it all works out.

Remembering Sandy Hook [Dec. 14th, 2016|01:44 pm]

Today is the fourth anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre, where a lone gunman killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. It was the deadliest mass shooting in a school in US History.

Since the massacre four years ago, there has been a shooting on school grounds about once a week.

CNN correspondent Jake Tapper is tweeting pictures of all the victims.
