All About Serraph105
Thought I would share a cake with you guys
I'm now 25 or as my dad says a quarter of a century (I don't see it that way though) and now the proud owner of the entire series of Full Metal Alchemist the movie included which is the best anime in the world.
Beyond that I'm done arguing in OT today. Don't really want to spend my day that way. I've got some stuff to do and some video games to play so I will see you guys in a day or so. Have a great one guys.
So I realized that I haven't mentioned granola in my blog here at gamespot. Granola is a free software I came across that lower the wattage of your CPU. Now I know what you're probably thinking, "Serraph wouldn't this slow my computer down?" No I wouldn't use it if it did. It will raise and lower your wattage according to when your computer requires it.
Other things you should know is that this software is a very small program (seriously it's about the size of your average mp3) that runs in the background, which again means you won't notice it. The other thing you will want to know is that it saves on your energy bill over the course of the year. It saves me about $20 a year.
So if you want to save some money or just want to make your computer a little more green I highly reccomend granola to do this for you. This is not coming from someone who works for granola just a very happy user.
edit a little update on this software.http://blogs.reuters.com/small-business/2011/04/27/startup-sees-boost-after-japan-quake/
So if you know me through OT you know that political threads are among my favorite things to discuss. Now for the record I try to stay in the thought process of a moderate, but that being said I clearly lean on the side of the democrats while doing so. and thus if you don't want to read a left leaning rant you can probably quit right about now.
I currently don't like the way politics have become. Nearly everyone is completely partisan (by everyone I mean the folks in congress) and it has lead to a few things I don't like, but at the same time realize there is nothing that can truly be done about. The first is when it comes to voting you have no idea any more if people will stick to their principles. The best guess you can go about assuming is that, due to the current partisan politics, voting completely along party lines is your best bet at seeing the issues you care about get taken care of. That in itself is sad to me because it means you can't look at a person anymore instead you have to say to yourself, "Well they he's a democrat so if I want any shot of voting for someone who is going to give a damn about the environment I need to vote for him." This is because each party currently seems to think they will be completely demonised if they vote against party lines. The worst part is it's probably true.
Another thing I have come to hate is how getting stuff through congress (aka getting stuff done) is now considered good pretty much regardless of what that something is that got past both houses. As the ever sharp Jon Stewart has pointed out, "Yeah, but what if that means when you're kid reaches a certain age they are required to get their fingers cut off?" However the question then becomes, "What are you gonna do about this situation where done equals good?" The fact is as long as Republicans try to continually make the President look bad in their efforts to re-take the most powerful seat in the US rather than collaborating for the good of the country like they aught to, we will see getting stuff done as a good thing. Not only a good thing, but an impressive thing. About the only time it hasn't felt impressive to most people is when people felt Obama was giving in to Republicans when in fact it was more about compromise. The worst part is that it feels like if the republicans in congress did manage to stop the President from accomplishing one thing or another (lets say healthcare) they would then just use it as part of their next campaign saying how the President failed to even accomplish this simple act so you should really vote him out.
Finally I hate how when Republicans are not the party of no and do try to get something done it always feels like it secretly (or not so secretly) is something that will really help them down the road. For instance recently when Republicans managed to get tax breaks for the top two percent of the country. I really feel that was so they could secure funds for the next campaign. Now I know the theory about trickle down economics really I do. However currently the economy is hurting, we have millions out of work, and a dissapearing middle class. So why would you honestly focus any of your efforts on the people who are not struggling? Even if the trickle down does work (which I'm sure you are all aware that we had the last ten years with them and they have just been so great to us) do we really have time to wait for such a slow procedure? I don't really think we do. Personally I think we need action geared towards the people who are actually struggling. Not necessarily in the form of tax breaks, but instead tax credits and incentive programs.
Anyways outside of that last sentence I don't really give any solutions to these issues. Solutions aren't really why I wrote this though. Instead I want just want anybody who reads this to focus on these things for a moment, reflect, and give consideration to these things that I believe to be issues.
Then you can rip me apart for being another Keith Olberman or whomever is left leaning and you despise.
