I haven't watched the whole video, because I got to 9:08 before I couldn't listen to any more.** This isn't a "days off" offense. This is a "pack your stuff, and move on" offense. I would actually consult with the city attorney to consider charges against the officer for terroristic threats made against the driver. As a street cop, I'm disgusted at this.
Welcome to the new Captain Tammany H. Plutocrat Seawater Economy. Climb aboard the Ship of State, a wholly owned subsidiary of Titanic, Inc, they said. But there isn't room for everyone on board, and most of us are cast adrift in a rowboat, and there's nothing but ocean in sight.
At around 11:00 this morning, I had 4 cars and a van filled with FBI agents pull up to my house, and then invade. I have learned enough from Reddit to ask for a copy of the search warrant, which took them at least half an hour to provide, and it was a "copy" (bad signature, no seals, etc.). They ushered me and my four kids to the couch, and then proceeded to search my house, with guns drawn, and collect all our electonic devices and equipment.
Too much like work. These days everything is starting to feel "too much like work". Except work. I stopped playing WoW for a few months because it was becoming necessary to study harder for a game than it was for my real job. I've started playing again but not with much enthusiasm.
Enthusiasm. Odd word. I seem to have lost enthusiasm for most things. I suppose it doesn't help that the last few years every time I've tried to start something new that something gets in the way. I had started to learn to play electric bass, but my left hand became arthritic enough that I cant finger the frets.
Perhaps I just lose interest easily. I was very much into ham radio when I was living in Colorado in '96. But mostly dropped it when I moved to Nebraska. I've kept my license up at least. I was kind of into the local music scene in Omaha, but lost that when I moved to Arizona. And here I just have started to feel old and tired. Personally I think 60 is too young to feel this old.
And I started this blog with some high hopes.
But it started feeling "too much like work". Hope I can turn that around some.
Gary - interesting power but he's annoying. Bill - somewhat annoying. His power seems to have energy limitations. Rachel - Not much personality yet. Power seems cool, but you're never quite sure what sense she's using. Dr Lee Rosen - He was a bit annoying till the last scene. Then he became a douchebag. Nina - I kind of like her. Power doesn't work on everyone, but that's a plus. Cameron - Lots of promise here. Power is cool because it isn't overwhelming.
Overall - I'll keep watching. Hopefully the annoyance factor goes down or I get used to it.
