Now these last few weeks have also kept me very busy, no time to blog, barely any time to think. Besides trudging through the holiday season with my family, I have been extremely busy at my civilian job, holidays are like that, everyone wanting time off. My father has been struggling with the fact he is losing his vision (and there is nothing he can do to recover what he lost) and I have been trying to support him and my mother as best I could during these times. So, I have put very little effort into promoting my book, or completing my masters degree which I am now 8 credit hours short of completing. But, I want to get back on the horse, write a little more and spread the word of my book out to a larger audience within the United States. A month or so ago, I thought it would be a good idea to place a Facebook add and open it up to various foreign countries to include the Middle East. I am glad I did, but it is strange to see that I got more likes from Iraq, India, Pakistan and other various parts of the Middle East and Asia than I did in the United States during the time the add ran. Kind of disturbing to think that those in the Middle East would see a book with an American flag as the cover, the books title "Combat Support; The True Burden Of Sacrifice," and the short caption stating "One soldier's true story, before, during, and after Operation Iraqi Freedom," and like it more frequently than those in the United States. I think this story has great potential, but I have other stories that will have great potential I want to work on in the near future, to include a screenplay which I want to keep mum about because I am very excited about the potential it holds, but this one is out and it is time people start to talk about it.
Not like government hasn't been like this for years, it is no different now than it was twenty years ago. The difference now is we need to step up and make some changes. Not with guns or knives, but with the next election cycle. No government official serving in office now should retain their seat come 2014. We, as Americans, need to send a message. A message telling all political figures across the country that we will be heard, you will listen, this is a government of the people, by the people, for the people. We are taking our country back, and you will be looking for new jobs come 2014. When government goes wrong, where do you go?
This message was not meant to hurt or betray any governing official, just point out what is the simple truth. You need to step up, man (or woman) up, and do your damn job! Stop the partisan bickering and bullshit and just do the damn job you were put in office to complete! If you can't handle it, start making plans for a new career path in 2014.
