It seems the Florida plan is not working out too well, in that we’ve been here for 5 months, and in all that time the only employment action either us has had was a three-week temp assignment for D.

So it’s back to the hunt. We’re specifically targeting a move to the DC area or back to NY.

If you – or anyone you know – might be aware of a job opening for an IT guy (specializing in web design, network admin and social media marketing) in either of those places, please let me know.

At this point, I’m not too proud to beg.

Today there was a fatal shooting at the Holocaust Museum in DC. The question which immediately comes to mind is “What kind of sick fuck would do that?”

Here, for your edification, is a picture of said sick fuck:

Let’s bear in mind that this guy denies that the Holocaust took place. He wrote a book entitled Kill The Best Gentiles. He runs a viciously anti-Semitic website called Holy Western Empire. (I won’t dignify it by linking to it.) He believes that Jews are engaged in a conspiracy to destroy the white gene pool. And he served six and a half years in jail for attempting to kidnap members of the Federal Reserve Board.

Perhaps we shouldn’t even be surprised that he did this, nor that the victim was black.

What I /am/ surprised – nay, shocked – by is the fact that someone with his history can still get access to a gun. The Second Amendment was never designed with bastards like him in mind, and I firmly believe that this (and other recent incidents) underscore the need for serious revision of gun laws around the country.

Here’s the kicker. A current Congressional effort to allow the District of Columbia to have full representation in the House are being torpedoed by a Republican-proposed amendment which calls for a LOOSENING of the District’s gun laws. If you are represented by Senator John Ensign of Nevada, the author of this amendment, I urge you to call him (202-224-6244), email him (web form), write to him (119 Russell Senate Office Bldg., Washington DC 20510), Tweet at him (@JohnEnsign) or by any other means let him know that today’s events prove that his amendment to the DC Voting Rights Act should not, now or ever, become law.

If he persists, he is frankly no better than the aforementioned sick fuck.

Perhaps rather than chasing terrorists overseas, we should deal with the ones we have right here at home.
