Always a treat to crack open the door on another sub genre. I've been on the road to finding it all my life. Makes you wonder what's behind that next music door down the road.

Viking-themed, melodic death metal band from Sweden.**

I do believe the actors are the Jomsvikings group that I mentioned a few weeks back.

Amon Amarth "Twilight Of The Thunder God"

I've been looking at some of the first information coming out on the Health Care bill law. Overall, for someone like me, right now, it has little effect. The New York Times has a informative little write up about some of the basic things that are going to happen.

And look at that, they invited Gary Coleman from 1978. Whatcha doin' with that health care bill Willis?


Many of the items I'm interested in are either not there, or are years down the road. Just about every expert agrees they don't know exactly what is going to happen to premiums. It's only the loud mouthed pundits who claim 100% certainty they know exactly what is going to occur.

Overall I'm looking for a reduction in red tape and some basic protection from being kicked when I'm down. I don't mind paying for health care, or for insurance, I just want something that is less chaotic. Something a little more predictable.

The above items are important to me, but if I look deep there is more. I still hold a deep hate for the far right wing, and for the Bush administration. The behavior of the right wing has clouded my judgment against anything they have to say. My desire to see everything and everyone from 2000 to 2008 be beaten into the ground until there is nothing left but dust. I have a rather serious bias.

Not to say the have not been some bright spots. Every once in awhile I might catch a rather intelligent person with a conservative view point. I'm all ears and eyes for what this person has to say. But I'm ultimately disappointed when the less intelligent idiot wind blows out this light. The shouting, the spitting, the name calling, McCarthyism, reckless accusations, unsubstantiated accusations, demagogic attacks on the character or patriotism of political adversaries, unrestrained hysteria (in fact hysteria is richly rewarded).

Such as image below. When viewed as humor, so extreme it is funny, one can appreciate it. But these people are not being funny, they actually think this is an accurate depiction. Despite the fact that Hitler and Stallin were bitter enemies in every respect, and both would hate President Obama.


This bumper sticker, most likely to be on a car with a W bumper sticker, commenting on stupid voting.


This rather obvious error in judgment and apparent short term memory loss.


My previous stated bias, combined with the overall behavior of anti-reformers has forced my conclusion. That the people who are against this are so repulsive (at least the very loud ones who live inside my television), I'm almost forced to the left side of the political spectrum.

Once forced to the left, I look around and I'm not exactly excited being over here either. But at least they have really good pot.
