I was a teenage commando insurgent enemy combatant #29

9/25/2020
I was a member of Saint Louis' Army JROTC and a proud member of the Ranger Club. It was extremely hardcore (er, hardcorp, if you will). I had done some writine about it and I will share it here: Charlie was older. He was one of the coolest kids in the school. He was respected both in JROTC as well as in the school. He was pretty bad ass. He was a junior the year I met him. The first Thursday I saw him come into the class was dressed differently than everyone else. He wore the same class As...

I was a teenage Donald J. Trump #28

9/24/2020
Season 2, Episode 28, of ChrisCast: I am Chris Abraham. When student body president of Saint Louis School was opened up for candidates, my buddy David Saiki and I threw my hat it. I was a white dude (a haole), I was 6 foot 3 inches tall, and had gaudy, fake, bleach blond hair. I was a bullshitter, a dufus, and didn't take anything that seriously. I was a bit of a prat and while a strong B+ student, I wasn't a National Merit Scholar. I had never been in any student body and only dabbled in...

Trump Will Win in November 2020 Due to the Shy Trump Factor #26

9/23/2020
According to Wikipedia, the Shy Tory Factor is: "... a name given by British opinion polling companies to a phenomenon first observed by psephologists in the early 1990s. They observed that the share of the electoral vote won by the Conservative Party (known colloquially as the "Tories") was significantly higher than the equivalent share in opinion polls. The accepted explanation was that so-called "shy Tories" were voting Conservative after telling pollsters they would not. The general...

ChrisCast S2E23: proper English isn't White it's Highfalutin

9/10/2020
Being able to speak proper American English isn't selling out to the White man, it's selling out in order to be accepted by the Highfalutin. My dad, Bob Abraham, actually bought Eliza Doolittle books full of elocution lessons to make him sound less like a poor, working-class, bum from New Jersey. He was his own Professor Henry Higgins. And it worked! He got a job a BBDO as an illustrator and then worked in the Ad World of NYC like Don Draper, who also worked so hard to come across as an NYC...

ChrisCast S2E22: is BLM America a melting pot, a salad bowl, or something else?

9/9/2020
I don't know if BLM wants either an American melting pot or a salad bowl if it, in any way, capitulates to American culture, defined as white culture, which actually means American white supremacy. The episode is my attempt to try to get my head around it and sort it out, awkwardly, out loud. I don't know if I even really understand it. And, I don't really feel like it's my place to contribute, either, as I am a chameleon. "The USA is traditionally called a melting pot because, with time,...

ChrisCast S2E21: addicted to my Sony ICD-UX570 digital recorder for all its podcasting goodness

Record audio precisely with excellent sound quality and three recording modes. Normal, Focus, and Wide-stereo recording modes give you the ability to record the audio that you need to capture, no matter the setting. An even more compact design allows for storage in tight spaces, and the simplified UI makes file retrieval easier than ever. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app · Charity Promotion: Democracy Works: This...

ChrisCast S2E20: On writing my novel Hill Mole for over fifteen-years

9/6/2020
I started writing my spy novel Hill Mole casually on May 13, 2005, and sort of petered out on July 20, 2017. I aspire to continue. I blame Facebook and Twitter because I really stopped contributing to the novel, still alive at HillMole.com. But I had so much fun writing it. And I truly aspire to get her done, or make her a life's work. Ironically, it's still running a 2006 version of Six Apart's MovableType running Perl.

ChrisCast S2E18: Kit Bags are Kool!

9/4/2020
Who would have thought that the kit bag I have been wearing on my chest since 2014 would become the basis for a super trend in the hip hop community. Hip hop calls them chest rigs and they're the coolest. But they were the opposite of cool when I started using them. But now, am I cool? Naw! Over the last couple-few years I haven't gone for a run without wearing my Hill People Gear Snubby Kit Bag on my chest. For me, it's how I like to carry my personal stuff when I am on a run, race, or jog....

I have a Keiser M3 I got used from a spinning club that was either upgrading or going out of business. It looks pretty cool.
