    Misplaced Priorities

     I'm ashamed because people's priorities are so screwed up.  Only in crises do we get it right.  Otherwise, we place importance on crap that doesn't really matter.  Like my FMIL who prioritizes her self-proclaimed right to hang out with her friends (who we can...

    You Fail!

    The Truth

    We could have been off the big oil teet a long time ago but there is too much money and politics intertwined with it all. None of those people or creatures had to die.

    We never learn. History's lessons are blood

    soaked but we never learn. How many children will starve to death today? Why is human life so cheap for the poor and their rich neighbours? Why must people suffer and wait for medical help just because they are poor? The rich should care for the poor, and perhaps the moon is...

    I Keep Trying To Distance Myself From Humanity

    I feel so disgusted by humanity that I don't want anything to do with it. I keep trying to be something more than human. It's like I refuse to be associated with humanity at all. In a way I just can't accept that I'm the same as everyone else.
