Dush, thanks for that.. I think. Opinions are like assholes everybody has one. There are different points here being made I agree with and others I disagree with. I think people should call 'welfare' what it really is and that is 'entitlements'. I get so sick of wrong terms being used because it confuses the less deep thinkers of the world. Truth is entitlements are programs any working person pays into. They are called that to be a 'safety net' for people to use if and when they should need them. But I will agree with Anhedonia that most of the money goes towards the military that to a degree we need. However, most of it is wasteful spending on crap they know won't work usually in the middle of creating it. Also I will agree with Anhedonia that the jobs immigrants have are not jobs most people would be stepping up and willing to do. So we should just be honest about that and really some of them being here helps us because as horrible as this is to say outloud they are doing the shitty jobs while everyone else retrains for better jobs. Someone has to do the shit jobs while that happens. Just my take on it here.
VampireFreaks Mobile App News:

Android: fixes for images / icons which were not displaying properly. added 'remember me' functionality.
Hmm, and what part of raising my son up in a specific faith, diet, or lifestyle is child abuse exactly? And the correlation was that we both have our own idea of spirituality and our own paradigms of what is morally and ethically acceptable. So what grounds do you use to judge where your parenting comes from? I use the scriptures ( not canonically accepted writings solely ), secular humanism ( not athiest philosophical ideals) as oppossed to theocracy which is not part of Christianity.
Also Ken ( ? ) , Your arguments seemed to have lost some of the oomph lately. Please don't confuse that with umph. And if you don't like the word argument feel free to interchange it with rhetoric, feedback, or opinions. So between that and the lack of posts I just assumed you are either really busy or stressed lately. I hope you are not taking on to many children birthday parties to preform at. I knew signing to Razor and Tie would be a full plate. But keep at it and one day you'll probably be able to open for one of their bands like Hatebreed instead of kidz Bop xd. Just kidding. I still enjoy your posts from the whiney ones, to the PC ones, to the funny ones. Haha. I really do enjoy your posts. I'll try to be more empathetic to your outlook. And speaking of child abuse what's your favorite icecream for future reference.
I went through my journal on here and deleted about 98% of the posts I have put in here over the years which went back to 2004!!
Past shit, needs to stay there. I have no reason to go back to any of that stuff.. I am nowhere the same person I was years ago. Most of the people in my life back then as "friends" were toxic and a waste. So no need to have any of that crap on here anymore...
VampireFreaks Version 3.0 will be released as a Beta version on December 1st!
This is a complete site rewrite from the ground up that I wrote using newer web technologies and is designed to be easier to use, more modern looking with dynamic page updates, and mobile optimized.
So yeah the reason why we haven't really had any code updates on VF lately is because I've been working on the VF rewrite.
Fair warning that it will be missing a few features at first but the new code is a lot more organized and will be much easier to update and upgrade.
Once the Beta is released we'll ask you guys for input / suggestions on it and I'll continue to fix it up for a month until we switch over to the new code. I know some of you guys are going to hate it because you hate change but I think overall you guys will really like it. The site has been in desperate need of a rewrite and it will be a lot easier to keep the site updated and have better functionality.
Our friends at the Steampunk World's Fair are working on a new project!
These guys know how to party and we always have fun at their events. Check out their Kickstarter for the mind-bending, darkly satirical Steampunk rock opera Absinthe Heroes.
