End the hate.

Nine people die in South Carolina and the Country comes uncorked.
The news headlines for weeks to come will cover this tragedy.
Yet every time a innocent muslim dies over seas, people clap, cheer and call for it to be "Turned to glass"
When people die in Africa the comments are "They have always been like that"

Nonsense, Humans are Humans and most are peaceful, all are deserving of life.

Killing innocent people is never a good thing. I do not know those in South Carolina but I understand their pain, just as those in Palestine, Israel, Congo and Myanmar.

Its time as a Nation and a people to grow past the Bigoted narrow minded bullshit. Its time to quit pretending we are "Protecting our freedom" while in the same breath cursing oil companies for their expansion, for their underlying cause of the wars to fuel our gluttony.

End the hate.

As it turns out Cain Velasquez really is a fake Mexican

Last night the reigning UFC Heavy Weight Champion faced off against the apparent fake Interm Heavy Weight Champion Fabricio Werdum, you know because being the number one contender is just not good enough, we need cracker jack labels as well.

I am not sure how Cain was not stripped of his belt after not fighting for two years, especially after he pulled out of his last fight in Mexico City with a lame excuse of "I did not feel 100 percent." Sounds like someone is tired of the fight game and drunk with all that sponsorship money. While Fabricio won the Interim Belt, otherwise known as the fake or as Broc Lesnar put it, the "pretend heavy weight belt" Fabricio still was only the number one contender, lame.

Fabricio did something right before this fight though, something I have said all along, he called out Cain as a "fake Mexican."

Now with the big Brown Pride written on Cains chest and all his Mexican flag waving one would think Cain indeed is a Mexican. Well not quit, Cain was born in the United States, and still lives there, which is something that irritates me. I am fine with someone having pride in their heritage, I am very proud of mine, but it is another thing to carry around a fake nationality.

Clearly the US has been good to the Valesquez family, just as it has been to many immigrants, and it is a huge slap in the face not only to the US to get slapped in the face by Cain, but also to Mexico for Cain doing nothing more than selling his fake nationality.

Cain proved all this true last night. With Mexico City at a staggering 7350 feet in altitude, Cain only showed up for two weeks of training, the required minimum for your body to adjust to altitude. His opponent Fabricio took it more seriously training in Mexico City for a full Month.

Now I would say that should put the nail in the coffin on this one for good. I ask you the reader of this who probably is pissed at me, if Cain loves his heritage so much, why can he not only be bothered to live in Mexico, but not even stay there long enough to train properly?
I am also willing to bet that Cain is on the plane back to Merica early this week.

Let us put one more thing to rest, just as Cain was last night. The fight was by no means one sided, nor did Cain come out as if he was not properly acclimated. He threw crazy amounts of punches and came forward as he always did. The trouble was his opponent was prepared, hit him harder in the exchanges and flat out frustrated him. So let us not pretend that Cain was not trained, and certainly let us not pretend he was the greatest Heavy Weight Champion ever, he defended his belt twice for gods sake.

Nighty Night.

I got my first UAV Quad Copter, the Syma X5c !

What a wonderful time we live in when virtually every kind of electronic gismo we dreamed of is now available to the common man.
I like many men have a fascination with this stuff and I will do my best to experiment with what I can.

First let us make a clarification, a Drone is completely autonomous and flies by itself, while a UAV means Unmanned Ariel Vehicle, which would be the proper usage in this case.

The history of the UAV is actually fairly old, with the first US UAV as we know it flying in combat in 1963. However the UAV was reportedly in use and some sort of development, mostly as flying bombs as early as WW1, and even beyond in the form of Hot Air Balloons.

Clearly the powers that be have kept the fun stuff out of our hands for some time, yet finally it is here and by damned, I will enjoy it.

So started the research, for the past two years since they were released I have looked, dreamed and waited for one I could afford. This year that would happen.

With visions of racing thru the woods like some star wars movie, I calmed myself realizing I wanted something for more of a camera platform at this time. Reading many reviews on the 400 dollars on up models, I realized that despite the marketing of a beginner Quad Copter, many were still losing them be it forever, or in water, trees etc. I would settle one which reviews were quit high, enter the SymaX5c with Camera for 53 dollars shipped!

Now out of the box this thing is actually charged, mostly assembled and RTF (Ready to Fly)
I would waste no time installing the battery and crashing it in the living rooms since the wind was absolutely railing outside. It took several bashings inside the house that were beyond what I expected.

I would try to fly it outside in the wind but would quickly have to shut it off at about 25feet as the wind took it, I panicked and it would land upside down on my roof. After crawling up and carrying it back down I would again panic after brief loss of control and in all my Martial Arts reflexes and wisdom, toss down the Remote in order to catch it, Uhhgg. I would continue to drain the battery several times and finally I was good enough I could fly around the house relatively uneventful.

Today was a different day outside, after having troubles with the camera I discovered it merely was not plugged in tight, so I have my first Video and outside flight experience. It seems to work well.

Using the Camera is easy, merely flip a switch and on it goes. Operating was a bit of a challenge still with light gusts threatening to carry it off. I would gain at least rudimentary control and manage to harass my elderly neighbor, who proclaimed "I want one" Indeed, she is going to get one next week apparently.

Thus far initial impressions are good, mating the Syma to the Quad is super easy, adjusting level flight is even more easy, and while it could use more functions in regard to beginning use and advanced use, it seems to do well.

Anything above 5mph wind is a bit difficult at my horrid skill level to fly, but light breezes are possible and fairly easy as one practices more. This is where an expensive larger one would do well. Regardless I am still having fun playing with the dog in the yard. I dive bomb her and she nips at it and chases it around.

I think I made the right choice initially, even though the wife has already claimed it, I can experiment with relative peace of mind over destroying and possibly losing 50 dollars, over 400+

I still am going to put my Name and Phone number on it in the event I lose it.

More updates to come, a quick video of early flight testing.

The Mosque Armed Protestors in Arizona Resemble Dark Groups of the Past.

I think by now anyone and everyone has seen at least some news about the recent armed protest in Arizona.
The protests were by the founders own words "Designed to flush out" terrorists within the Mosque and apparently to chase evil Muslims out of America.

There are so many things wrong with this line of thinking I am not sure where to start, well, here goes.

First off the fact people would arm themselves and surround a building filled with not only men, but women and children shows a very dangerous level of intent. It shows a complete disregard for human life not to mention the rights of those within. Think about that for a second, women and children in Prayer and these guys show up armed to the teeth spoiling for a fight, uhhggg.

The next worse aspect of this is the pre meditated aspect of it. Without a doubt these guys have put a little thought into why Muslims are Evil and need to be banished from the USA, so much so they were ready to kill anyone who so much as flinched. I am sorry, but at the point it showed intent to commit a crime, possibly murder, this protest went straight out to a good old fashioned Salem witch hunt.

These guys showed up wanting blood, hoping and praying the Evil Mooslim of their dreams would Emerge screaming "God is Great" so they could double tap him, high five with their buddies and wait until the next Rabbit, I mean Mooslim came out.

Sadly this is the exact vision anti gun groups have had of Armed Americans for years, they just perpetuated it to a T. White entitled Christian males who have no tolerance for others not of their belief or vision of worthiness. If you thought your Second Amendment rights were secure before, after the Bundy stand off and now this, they wont be for long. Plenty of fuel for the Anti Gun fire now, and honestly, who can blame them? When you have armed people showing up with the intent to kill in the guise of a protest, Houston, we have a huge problem.

These at the protest are at the same mentality of those at the Bundy Protest, supposed freedom loving Constitutional Mericans who know very little of law and are poorly educated and not well read apparently on any level.

This is a problem, ignorance creates fear, and fear creates knee jerk dangerous reactions, which is what this protest and the Bundy standoff really were.

In neither case was there an actual legal precedence for these people to be armed, in neither case were they exercising their actual rights, they were in fact trying to rule out of fear in their own way. I na sense, they were bullies.

Further those in the Arizona protest bear a striking resemblance to those radical Islamists they so hate. They are people not tolerant of other Ideals, customs or even culture, and are willing to kill in their own ignorance to stop said culture.

In the past in America we had dark groups like this, beyond the obvious which persecuted the Native Americans, we had those who persecuted those who were classified as Americans themselves, they called them witches. Those persecuting touted the bible and Their god as justification, that group was called puritans. They murdered at will if you failed their impossible test. If you swam you were a Witch and therefore to be killed. IF you drowned then you were not a witch, but well they were dead, but at least they knew!

The next group I can think of which is even more in line with the current Ideology of the protestors, who used to claim the First Amendment, well a picture speaks a thousand words.

Notice the resemblance, supposed Patriots flying an American Flag even. They have zero tolerance for those they deem not worthy in America, specifically the Jew and the Negro.

Have we really digressed that much in the US? Is our education system really that bad?

The only good from this, if there is any, is that the protestors were met not by angry armed Muslims, but by peaceful people trying to educate.

The bad, they just re affirmed what radical Islam already states, Muslims are being persecuted.

I fear these protests in the end will do far, far more harm in the long run, than good.

The hate has to end.

I just want to say as an advocate for firearms ownership, and the Second Amendment in general these assholes do not represent the rest of us, they like the Mooslims the haters are a minority, at least I hope they are. As a former Christian I am also here to say they do not represent the majority of Christians, and as a White male, I certainly hope they do not represent the rest of us as well.

I am sorry, truly America I am sorry this is still going on today.

Some quick facts readily hidden by the Media for those reading this that are fuming right now.

The US Constitution was not the first Human rights doctrine, it actually shares some ideology from a document of hte past and arguably the first to recognize human rights. The Constitution of Medina written by none other than Muhammad.

Second, there are more women elected into Government in Pakistan than the US, in fact Pakistan has already had a female PM, not once, but twice. Indonesia, another Muslim country has also had a Female PM. The US? Not yet.

Second Baghdad just elected its first female Mayor, so much for oppressive Muslims.

Third Muslims actually believe in Jesus as well, he was a profit who came from you guessed it, Mary as well.

I could be here all day typing, but I thought this would be a good way to dispel many myths surrounding the Quran and all those hate quotes you have seen being passed around. Now mind you, like the protestors at one point in my life I thought Islam was evil and vile as well, then I read the Quran and it was nothing like I thought.

Last, here is a link of someone who I find very special in the world, a woman with Balls that clank, Lois Pryce who Motorcycled Iran not once, but twice! What she found will shock you.
