Gun rants

Two totally different rants as I'm watching (technically listening, as my Mom is watching Dateline downstairs, and I can't see the television) another news show about the massacre.

The host of the show is going on and on about how easy it is to get a gun in Virginia, and that's the reason this massacre happened. Okay, look. I'm in favor of strict gun control.  You'll never be able to convince me that it's your God given right to own 100 guns and an arsenal of semi automatic weapons. One gun, sure. Two guns cause you love hunting, all right, but no one needs an Uzi, especially if the closest you've ever been to hunting is a pair of camo pants.

*However*  the argument that if there was stricter gun control this horrible thing never would have happened is bullshit. If it was illegal to own guns, there would never be any gun violence?  Just like drugs are illegal now, and the U.S. has no drug problem, you mean? Riiiight.   People who want to do something like this, will do it. Whether they can walk into a gun shop and buy one or whether they're buying one out of someone's trunk.  I understand the need to hold someone or something accountable for this, but blaming something large like the gun industry or all immigrants accountable for the actions of one very disturbed and twisted individual just isn't right.


My other rant was the statement made by members of the VTech NRA Group about how if they were allowed to have guns on campus, this massacre never would have happened, because they would have tried to shoot the killer.  The level of stupid in that statement amazes me.  I can't imagine what the body count would have been had a bunch of twenty somethings had a shoot out in a heavily populated building.

So sick over this

I got this email from Emory a few days ago, but I ignored it as junk mail asking me for money. Man, I wish I never opened it. I'm sick over. It's good for people that are going there now, but what about people like me? People whose parents "made too much money" for qualifying for financial aid. My mother made $50,000 when I went to Emory and had $100,000+ in medical bills because of Tara, and yet that was too much money. I have $50,000 in Emory student loans.

This is such a slap in the face to all of us that have ridiculous loans, I want to cry. Why not offer us some relief too?

Fun With Real Estate

Since Craig's in North Carolina, I've been really looking at real estate down there. These are some of my favorite. I'm in awe of how many new developments are being built. I'm torn on new homes. I really like the idea that you can move right in & not have to spend years fixing things or dealing with the damage that other people have done to the house. Some people are stuck with home repairs that end up running them the cost of a new house (like my Aunt).  On the other hand, I like a house with personality. Give me a old creaky farmhouse with a wrap around porch, and that's my idea of heaven.

These homes are mostly in the Chapel Hill/Cary, NC area. Cary was voted one of the top ten places to live in the U.S. by CNN/Money Magazine last year, so it's not like I've picked BumFuck, NC just to get cheaper house prices in order to show a staggering difference between the Northeast and the South.

We'll start with my favorite because it's one of the more expensive.  It's in a new development called Lakestone Village. The website for that is: http://www.lakestonevillage.com/avhomes.html

This is my favorite home. 


I'm in love with the shape and the porch. It's very "beachy" looking. It's expensive at $299K when you compare it to the rest of the houses below, and much smaller than the rest, but I just love it. It kills me with cuteness. I can see myself sitting on the porch with a book reading for hours. It's just a friendly looking house, don't you think?Read more...Collapse )

Lutz, flip, axel, what?

If you're not familiar with all the different kinds of jumps in figure skating NBC's website has a great section showing all the different kinds of jumps, complete with little videos of each jump. Also there's a guide to the new scoring system and a glossary of terms you may not know (as Craig said during ice dancing, "Twizzle? Isn't that a type of candy?")

It's a good site.
