From an Ask on Tumblr:

Q: You seem to support Bernie Sanders in part because he’s held consistent opinions for longer, why is that? Is a politician who can see new evidence and hear opinions of others and change their mind not a good thing?

A: Being able to change your mind when you get access to new information is obviously a fundamental part...

^^^Cheers! I was so excited when Bernie announced that he was running. And @rudeboy71, that's my personal dream ticket right there. These 2 indeed have the biggest pair of conviction balls I've ever seen in Washington. They're genuine and the real deal in my opinion.
ekka:
Sounds like we need to start a Warren fan club aha. I'll take Clinton over anyone on the GOP ticket. I can't actually fathom the reality of any of the current Republicans as president. But it would be incredible to see Bernie get the nomination and win. I'm curious and nervous to see how things turn out at the polls. It seems like there are a lot of voices for Sanders online. I hope they translate into votes.

Q: How do you cope with people saying mean things about you on the internet? I think of you a human (as opposed to some text on a screen without feelings), a nice guy, and I agree with you on so many topics. I saw a reddit post yesterday that broke my heart on your behalf - mean ass people just being horrible about you. How...

Thanks, @lyxzen :)

Q: Stand By Me and Star Trek are great and all, but you know what I really loved as a kid – Toy Soldiers. I spent a lot of hours daydreaming about how I was going to deal with any Columbian terrorists who might invade my school. I loved that kind of thing. And Denholm Elliot was in it! Any particular memories of that one?

A...

Loved that movie!

As I write this, there is a goddamn motherfucking bulldozer in my backyard, breaking up my patio and part of my driveway. The house shudders and quakes beneath my feet, ripples vibrate in my coffee.

It reminds me of a time, years ago — 2007 or 2009, I think — when I had the swine flu, and there was a goddamn motherfucking bulldozer demolishing the house next...

I feel the same way as you do about taking the time to be creative and write.   I have lots of things that go through my head that I mean to jot down or blog about but I never take the time to do it.  And a big part of that is laziness because it's not like I don't have the time, but the time I do have to spare I choose to be unproductive.  Not sure if that's stress or some borderline depression that I'm in denial about.  Maybe the fact that I have a small apartment and a toddler, so I lack any personal space which kills that motivation off pretty quick.  maybe by the time I finally have some moments to myself, I've traded it all in for just a moment of not doing anything real.  I would love to write more on the lines of just something like this, but then I think why waste my time no ones gonna read or care anyway, what to I have to share anyway.  Also, after a friend self published a book for digital formats, I've wanted to do things like that or start podcasting.  I have the desire to create, just lack the motivation anymore and I would really like that back.  Maybe I should pack my laptop up and park next to a construction site. haha

I woke up earlier than usual this morning, probably because I went to be earlier than usual last night. It’s all part of Operation: Reboot, and while it’s been a challenging adjustment, it’s worth it.

I sat up in bed, next to both of my dogs who looked confused. Dad doesn’t get out of bed for at least another three hours...

Such a terrible loss. I'm struggling to accept it.

The Doc told me that I was halfway through my free form run, and that I was looking good.

“Thanks, doc,” I said, even though I knew she couldn’t hear me. We’ve spent a lot of time together in the last two months, so I feel like I know her, even if I’m just another Runner 5 to her.

Another runner came...

You have your head in the right place, and with the advice from your son I'm sure you'll be up and going in no time :]

Thoughts and prayers are easier than solutions. Solutions make people angry. Tougher gun laws threaten our precious American freedom, and honestly there are so many guns out there that they may not make a bit of difference aside from pissing off the NRA and your donors. Platitudes are, at worst, tiresome and annoying. No threat there.
