Random Ramblings

Steve Jobs
Very sad how an American hero so young died so soon. He's had a lot of stress throughout his life from not knowing his biological parents were nor even having a relationship with them, to being kicked out of his own company to having a child out of wedlock and abandoning the kid. He's made a lot of mistakes in his lives but I'm glad he's been hailed as a hero and he's been compared to some of the greatest humans to ever walk this earth such as Thomas Edison. I wish he would have initiated conversation with his birth parents and tried to forgive them no matter how wrong they may have been in giving him up for adoption. In a way, they can thank him because would he have been who he was had he not been given up for adoption and raised by the people he was raised by. I guess we'll never know. I also find it kind of funny, interesting and weird at the same time how Americans are so willing to accept an Arab-American who looks just like them in Steve Jobs but they can't stand to see Muslims in traditional wear or Muslims trying to have a place of worship that coincidentally is near Ground Zero. Interesting how our world works, but R.I.P. Steve Jobs.

Occupy Wall Street
I'm so glad to see Americans finally becoming politically-active during a non-election year and standing up for what they believe in. These people that you see on your TV stand for something that majority of us stand for: ending corporate greed. People seem to forget that before corporations took over the funding for the Tea Party and started to bash Obama, the Tea Party stood for the same thing. Most Americans on both sides of the spectrum believe that the people who caused this catastrophic mess deserve to pay for their actions. I applaud the actions of this group and I applaud the initial actions of the Tea Party to try and stop corporate greed but sadly we already know it's not going to happen. Why would President Obama, the Dems or Repubs vie to jail people that end up funding their election campaigns? I'm sure it would be a much needed political win for the President should he pursue something like that, but is he willing to "put country first" as he always loves to say to bring justice to those who are benefiting from the economic crisis? Hell no, and it shouldn't be a shocker to anyone. It's just the way our system works, there are positives to democracy and capitalism and there are just as many flaws to the system as well. Can those flaws be fixed? Yes. Will they be fixed? Probably not. But I want to thank all those protesters around the world for at least trying to fix those flaws, it's better than just sitting and doing nothing. Right?

Kim Kardashian
I'm hella salty by girlfriend Kim K. is getting married to Nets forward Kris Humphries tonight on part 2 of their 2-night special on E! but it's cool. I watched part 1 yesterday and I honestly don't see how and why they got together, either it's A. to one-up Khloe or B. to make Reggie feel jealous, because honestly those two don't seem to have any chemistry but that's just me. I also hate this guy's sarcastic tone, there's moments for joking and fooling around and being sarcastic but sometimes you've gotta chill with all of that. I wish nothing but the best for them and I love the show and the family. It makes you almost want to be apart of that family and appreciate the family that you do have at the same time, doesn't it?

This is my jam right now! Bye!
