Anime - Japanese Animation
Baka - Japanese word for idiot or fool
Loosely put an Anime Baka is someone who's crazy about Anime. However interpretation's may vary. I tend to think of Anime Baka as meaning something like drooling fan boy/girl.
Wrote this a long time ago. Too short for an article:
Perverted - Hentai in Japanese. But the word pervert means deviation from normal or accepted. So, how can all guys be perverts?
Did you ever notice that the sex scene in the movie is generally at about the same realative place as the guitar solo in a song?
2011-03-02 DOWN WITH PUBLIC UNIONS!
I'm only starting to understand this while being pummeled with emails crying out to support the protesters in Wisconsin. The problem is that just about nobody in the entire nation has the patience to actually understand what is going on with this complex issue and is instead being befuddled by lose mob logic and media drama.
It boils down to a simple concept of how unions operate. A private union bargins on behalf of company employees to get them better wages and benefits. But if the union goes to far the company can go out of business, so they don't. They sit down and come up with a plan so that the workers make good money, the investors make good money and the management makes good money.
Now lets take it to these public (government jobs) unions. They bargin with the government for better wages and benefits for their members. That's all. When there is not enough money to pay for these wages and benefits taxes need to be raised to make up the difference. It's the old concept of being a "public servant", these employees get their wages and benefits from us. But yet we have no say in how much they are paid.
When we the tax payers complain loudly that we're paying too much and the Governors (a lot like a CEO) try to cut back spending and please the people; these public servants go on strike and protest and claim that their rights are being infringed upon. What rights? Do I have the right to keep my job forever? Do I have the right to get raises every year? None of that is a right. I have the right to leave my job and find another where I make more or less money.
I belive that these Public Unions have created a situation that will continue to slowly worsen until it is unsustainable. More and more people will work for the government leaving less and less people to pay the growing taxes until it all crumbles. We have enough problems with the rising cost of heath care to be dealing with this as well.
