    Sometimes The Truth Hurts, But A Lie's A Lot Worse.

    At least, that's how I look at it. I am a very nice and polite person but I am also very honest. When I was younger I had the tendency to say things just to make people happy, true or not. But as I have gotten older, I've realized that honesty is always the best option. I mean...

    Obviously Sags Can't Lie

    Why would I even lie? I don't even understand why folks lie... Just tell the truth and move the hell on Then, too, I'm a Sag... We're like the epitome of honesty... Don't ask a Sag if you don't want the brutal truth

    The day I found out : There is something

    cathartic about what has happened to me during this stay in the hospital. I’ve heard others say that coming face to face with your own mortality can have this effect. You look with harsh, savage eyes at the life you are living and resolve to make the best of the time you have...

    Everyone Remembers 9/11.

    A terrible time for many families as well as this country. For the longest, those who pledged to our flag got cocky. They believed that ours was the strongest nation and that no one would mess with us. Our comedians would do crude impersonations of foreign people and their...

    Sicarium called me an idiot

    and then he blocked me so I couldn't reply to him. What's the matter sicarium? Too cowardish to take the criticism that could have followed your unjustified comment? No surprises there. Wouldn't have higher expectations of a Bush supporter.

    If I hurt you in the process of telling you the

    truth, that was not my intent. I tell you the truth out of love and kindness. It may hurt, but it is better than living a lie.

    I tell the truth no matter what.

    In today's world, most people expect you to come up with some story but no I just tell it how it is. I rather have a smooth path than a rugged one.
