Ok, so life has become very busy for me in the last few weeks, and as I look forward, I do not see a break in the near future. As I look over my priorities, I'm realizing that as much as I love this blog, it has to fall below 'senior stuff' this year before I graduate.
As such, I'm taking a break for the time being, and I don't know when I shall return. I'll be gone to mexico from Nov. 4-11, so I'll probably leave a report here from the aftermath.
Otherwise, I'm temporarily departing with nothing but happy memories. Thank ya'll.
In the mean time, I would like to recommend some other great blogs, run by people far better at this task then myself.

Adrian McKinnon held the suspect, 33-year-old Tajuan Bullock, at gunpoint and told him to sit on the floor until he decided what to do.
"We made this man clean up all the mess he made, piles of stuff, he had thrown out of my drawers and cabinets onto the floor," Tiffany McKinnon said.
When police arrived, Bullock complained about being forced to clean the home at gunpoint.
"This man had the nerve to raise sand about us making him clean up the mess he made in my house," she said. "The police officer laughed at him when he complained and said anybody else would have shot him dead."

He told IRNA and the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) that there are issues which should be settled between the two parties.
"Experts from Iran and Russia are currently working to resolve the issue," he said.
Asked about the delivery of fuel by Russia, he said that fuel should be delivered three months ahead of putting the reactor into operation."
So the good 'ol boys over in Russia are working with the Iranians, and no longer in supposed secrecy.
I think it's funny they blame busted equipment, fortunately it gives us more time to sit and watch, as apparently neither party has the intestinal fortitude to act on this looming world threat.

Story: ""I hope Hillary is elected in order to have the occasion to carry out all the promises she is giving regarding Iraq," stated Ala Senakreh, West Bank chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terrorist group. ...
"The Iraqi resistance is succeeding," stated Hamed. "Hillary and the Democrats call for withdrawal. Her popularity shows that the resistance is winning and that the occupation is losing. We just hope that she will go until the end and change the American policy, which is based on oppressing poor and innocent people."
The Brigades, together with the Islamic Jihad terrorist group, took responsibility for every suicide bombing in Israel the past three years. The Brigades also has carried out hundreds of recent shootings and rocket attacks.
Abu Ayman, an Islamic Jihad leader in Jenin, said he is "emboldened" by Clinton's calls for an eventual withdrawal from Iraq.
"It is clear that it is the resistance operations of the mujahideen that has brought about these calls for withdrawal," boasted Abu Ayman.
Nasser Abu Aziz, the West Bank deputy commander of the Al Aqsa Brigades, declared it is "very good" there are "voices like Hillary and others who are now attacking the Iraq invasion.""
This isn't surprising as a concept, that the terrorists would vastly prefer a Dovish Left Wing president over a Hawkish Right Wing president, but I didn't think they would say it.
Take what you will from this story, but not many people will hear about it, and as such, it will have very little impact on the election. Not that it shouldn't, but it won't.
Just remember, on top of all the Neo-Bolshevism she's been bandying around in recent months, she's also the islamo-nazi terrorists choice for Leader of the Free world.

"It's pretty much a slap in the face," Anderson said. "I think it was a scheme to save money, personally. I think it was a leadership failure by the senior Washington leadership... once again failing the soldiers."
Anderson's orders, and the orders of 1,161 other Minnesota guard members, were written for 729 days.
Had they been written for 730 days, just one day more, the soldiers would receive those benefits to pay for school.
"Which would be allowing the soldiers an extra $500 to $800 a month," Anderson said.
Both Hobot and Anderson believe the Pentagon deliberately wrote orders for 729 days instead of 730. Now, six of Minnesota's members of the House of Representatives have asked the Secretary of the Army to look into it -- So have Senators Amy Klobuchar and Norm Coleman."
This is simply unacceptable. Two thousand, six hundred men volunteered to serve in the National guard, which traditionally does not provide overseas roles, are send to Iraq for almost 2 years, and they rightly are expecting just compensation. They return home, only to discover that they are offcially deemed to be 1 day short of education and pay benifits.
This situation needs to be addressed, and fixed by the Army quickly, because this is nothing short of a travesty, both to the soldiers and their

The most senior official to defect so far, Hla Win, said: "Many more people have been killed in recent days than you've heard about. The bodies can be counted in several thousand."
Mr Win, who spoke out as a Swedish diplomat predicted that the revolt has failed, said he fled when he was ordered to take part in a massacre of holy men.
Reports from exiles along the frontier confirmed that hundreds of monks had simply "disappeared" as 20,000 troops swarmed around Rangoon yesterday to prevent further demonstrations by religious groups and civilians.
Word reaching dissidents hiding out on the border suggested that as well as executions, some 2,000 monks are being held in the notorious Insein Prison or in university rooms which have been turned into cells.

There were reports that many were savagely beaten at a sports ground on the outskirts of Rangoon, where they were heard crying for help.
Others who had failed to escape disguised as civilians were locked in their bloodstained temples."
So the initial reports were indeed false, and far more blood was spilled by this dictatorship then was previously let on.
As much as I usually don't like hollywood, but Slyvester Stallone was present recently, and only further confirms the brutal nature of this government.
"The 61-year-old actor-director returned to the U.S. eight days ago from shooting "John Rambo," the fourth movie in the action series, on the Salween River separating Thailand and Myanmar, formerly known as Burma.
Stallone said he was in Thailand for six months, most of it along or on the river.
"This is a hellhole beyond your wildest dreams," Stallone said. "All the trails are mined. The only way into Burma is up the river."
This was before the crackdown last week against the largest pro-democracy protests in Myanmar in two decades. After the government increased fuel prices in August, public anger turned to mass protest against 45 years of military dictatorship. Last week, soldiers responded by opening fire with automatic weapons on unarmed demonstrators."
As they say, Power Corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutly. Thank God America has some checks and balences that keep this fragile union in the balence.
