    For me, it is incomprehensible.  Not because I think it shouldn't exist for whatever politically correct rubbish that is currently in favour, it changes every week.  What I find facinating is the fact that relatively intelligent people waste their time, thoughts and...

    I Suppose I Could Be Racist

    I suppose I have a lot of reasons to hate people in general.  I'm brown and  have been discriminated against on several occasions (thats another story).  However, I simply cannot find the evil inside of me that enjoys being cruel to nice/thoughtful people.  I...
