Well it’s been awhile since my last Mind post. Maybe I have a lot to say, maybe I don’t. How is everyone doing? I hope you’re doing good. And no, this is not rhetorical. I want to know how my fans are doing so make a comment about it and tell me why you’re in the mood you are. Because I care. 🙂
Category: From The Mind of W.G. Cambron
Hello everybody! Welcome to the second installment of my weekly shoot posts From The Mind of W.G. Cambron. In case you missed the first one, basically this is where you get to know the real me. I shoot from the hip and talk about what’s on my mind this week. Honestly, I think this is a cooler idea than the whole ‘About Me’ page that is supposed to sound professional and proper. I don’t know about you but I’d love to sit down and talk with the real Mark Twain. Though wouldn’t that mean I would be talking to Samuel Clemens? Don’t think about it let’s get it on!
Hey everybody, how are you doing today? I thought I’d try something new for you, something real and from the heart (and mind). I’ve been posting my heart out the last three months with stories I have been dying to write and have gotten heartwarming feedback that I appreciated deeply. But stories are only half of what makes an author and the other half is the author themselves. So I think that once a week I would lay down the pen and open my mind in a blog post that I fondly call From The Mind of W.G. Cambron.
In professional wrestling (which is clear that I’m a fan of) when a wrestler talks about reality or say something that isn’t scripted it’s called a shoot. Well I like to think of myself as a straight shooter so this is where you get the real W.G. Cambron talking about reality. Or just ramblings that being from Missouri I am prone to. So let’s dive into my mind!
CNN/Tea Party Debate
Okay so on Monday there was a Tea Party debate in Tampa, Florida (my neck of the woods). I wanted to go in person because I am a fan of Ron Paul and Herman Cain, but the tickets were $60 and I could only meet Mike Gallagher. Fuck that, I’d rather meet Trace Gallagher of Fox News; he might look like a wax figure but he has some personality. Now don’t start thinking I’m a Republican because I’m not. I do not believe in the two party system. I am a Constitutionalist which means I believe in the Constitution as the rules and guidelines of politics.
Well the debate itself was a disappointment. It was a mix of gotcha questions and a roast. Every other response had a joke to it! I know humor is fine on the campaign trail, get the crowd on your side when you have a speech to do. But when you are in a debate that is supposed to introduce you to new voters, leave the jokes at home or bring your best one or two. Herman Cain did just that when he said one joke (he didn’t have time for more seeing as how it was dominantly Perry/Romney).
Mitt Romney showed he shouldn’t be president when he said he doesn’t want Congress to control our currency. HE NEEDS TO READ THE CONSTITUTION; ARTICLE ONE SECTION EIGHT! It is clear that Congress controls the purse and has the ability to declare war.
Anyone else think that Rick Perry is trying to look like Ronald Reagan? I think he had some kind of work. You see in my room I have a Ronald Regan poster (Not just him, it has a quote) and every time Perry came on the TV I had to do a double take from the poster to the TV. It was uncanny.
Sadly I know Ron Paul lost a few people. When he quoted on why 9/11 happened he got major heat. He was just saying what the guys who plotted the event were saying! Don’t shoot the messenger; the troops are still there (reference to the Egyptian origins of the phrase).
Before I wrap this up, because we all know politics is everyone’s favorite subject, why is Bachman even in the race? In the previous debate on MSNBC I noticed she’s only been a Congresswoman since 2006. Why is she running for president? I remember the 2008 election and I certainly remember the GOP going after the fact that Obama was inexperienced. Now Bachman, who had the same experience (or inexperience), wants to be president? She’s reminding me of that puppy who tries to play with the big dogs.
My conclusion is do what they do on Deadliest Warrior. Put all their stats into a computer simulator and run a simulator for what would happen if they were president. Whoever has the best results wins. We got the technology, I say let’s use it for more than George Washington vs. Napoléon Bonaparte simulations. Okay next topic!
Great Stoner Debate Series
Thanks for listening to my political rant. Now we can talk about something fun; the sequel to the Midnight Stoner Adventure! I am so happy I’ve gotten so much feedback from those three idiots. I actually enjoy writing them, like how Mike Judge loves writing/doing Beavis and Butt-Head (hehe, I said do). Well the sequel I have planned out is a series of debates that the stoners do. I have a few topics lined up and loads of Billy quotes (who doesn’t love Billy?). I would love to hear topic questions from you, my readers. The more out there the better. You can either leave comments with a topic or you can direct message me on Twitter @WG_Cambron. I swear I laughed at Twitter before I became a writer, now it’s the only reason people know me.
This won’t be too in depth because I don’t want to spoil the series. All I will say is there will be new stoners (as we saw in the interlude the ostrich stealing Krystian will be the first new guy). I’m literally going to have a panel of stoners debating on issues. The reason is clear: To make you laugh at dumb stoner quotes and to make you think. I think the only reason we don’t talk about politics or metaphysical conversations in the work place because people are ignorant. No, not stupid, they just don’t know the subject and don’t want to show their ignorance. Or they try to debate what they don’t know and ends in disaster. In the founding of America, the Constitution and taxes were debated in taverns and pubs! In a bar today you can’t even talk sports without starting a fight. I say let’s bring back intelligent discussion everywhere!
Yes I am getting off my soapbox now. Give me time; I’m still a fat guy. Don’t wanna fall and hurt myself then we’ll never get a new episode out of me.
Ready to get personal? I’m a sell-out, lol. That would be my teenage self speaking if he saw me now. Over the weekend I bought me new clothes, a new type of wardrobe. Dress pants, polo shirts, hell even new dress socks and shoes! I want to start dressing more conservative. When I step on campus I want my fellow students go ‘There goes the conservative undertaker’. Okay that will have to be given a quick backstory. I’m a writer, clearly, and I want to be published and be recognized with the greats. But until then I need a day job and I’m studying to be a funeral director. I will get a suit and such later on when I have a home to work in.
Back to the clothing, damn I look good in them. My friends have always seen me in T-shirts and jeans. There are few things in my wardrobe that isn’t even black t-shirts! So when I came home with non-black polo’s my mother was quite amazed. I love the new look, to be honest. They pretty much make me stand up straight, else you see my stomach. I just wanted to write about that. When I get money again I’ll be hitting up more stores to dress better. Thank God for materialistic friends, they helped me pick out the outfit!
That is all for this week. I’m sure I’ll have more to rant about next week. I hope you enjoyed getting to know the real me a bit more. And please, I implore you; if you want to comment about the political rant go ahead but no flame wars. We can’t have a civil debate online without getting into children. Thanks for reading; I’m going to write… something else.
