MC Router: Nerdcore's Lone McCain Supporter

This Myspace bulletin post from MC Router kinda breaks my heart a little:

"his (Obama's) false promises and superstar personality is gonna ruin our country.

he thinks he can walk in an instantly change the country and make peace.

there are countries that have hated us before we started wars with them.

they didn't hate us because of things we do, they hate us cause its how they are brought up, in some places its even part of their religion.

at least mccain understands that military and security are things that ALWAYS need to come first. i mean wtf dude, obama has NO experience in dealing with the military and he wants to be in charge of it? bullfuck.

i dont want palin as a president, she is too inexperienced and who would want a woman running this country anyway? not me!

but mccain is a very healthy and active human being and has no intentions of letting go of his presidency over the next 8 years.

its SO fucking trendy to vote obama. half of you only vote obama cause its the cool thing to do or its what your friends are doing...or its because the media make obama out to be some sort of superstar.

im voting mccain and it doesnt matter if you think its bullshit, because my vote is a well educated and morally supported vote"

Uh, nothing personal friend, but you have it all wrong. McCain has experience in the military, but what did that get him? For starters, McCain was only admitted to the Naval Academy because of his family connections, a fact that was perfectly illustrated by his graduation at second to the bottom of his class, which was soon follwed by one of the worst flying records in the history of the Navy. Also, having experience is one thing, but if you're an idiot, how much does that experience really help? The problem is that McCain, much like the Bush Administration, is stuck in a cold war mentality with an aim to wage conventional war against unconventional enemies. The strategy in Iraq was costly, destructive, and entirely off base. Obama understands this, and McCain doesn't. John McCain's foreign policies have put this country at greater risk than its ever been before, and they've accomplished absolutely nothing. Thankfully, the old man doesn't stand a chance next week, so we don't have to make a big issue out of it.

New Dallas DIY Venue?

Yes, maybe some of our dreams might be coming true!  Imagine, one of the largest cities in the United States finally getting a D.I.Y. venue!  Anyway, we don't know much about all of this quite yet (except that we're guessing the folks who run it are interesting in hardcore, metal, grindcore, etc.), but even just a sliver of good news for Dallas proper is worth discussing, no?  Here is a repost we found on Myspace:
