    Being Nice As The Ultimate Insult

      If I assume that people are really as absolutely, impressively stupid as they act, then perhaps I'll be more polite out of sympathy.

    Selfishness

    Selfishness govorns every single deliberate action humans take. Every single thing you decide to do is out of your own selfishness. You do it for you, no one else. I'm not exaggerating, nor can I exclude anyone, myself included. To my knowledge, a human cannot act unselfishly on...

    The Irish Are Beginning To Scare Me

    I've worked directly under three men of Irish decent now and every one of them were certifiably mentally dysfunctional. They were very dishonest, manipulative, narcissistic people with an emphasis on narcissistic. On top of this, all three were very uneducated, extremely ignorant...

    America's Fueling Of Racism

      In America, racism has been suppressed. There have been absolutely no steps taken to eradicate it, only to suppress it. The natural reaction someone has to suppression is to resist it, to strengthen their efforts in what is being suppressed. Anger, resentment, hatred...

    Small Businesses - The beast gnawing at America's fair belly.

      It's the cool thing to do to ridicule "Corporate America" for all their wrongdoings, unethical practices and outright awesome greed.  They make the news, trigger protests, cause deaths, starvation and poverty for some and unholy riches for others. I'd like speak a...

    Bitten

    After your vehicle which was made by descendants of the soldiers that bombed Pearl Harbor crashes into a tree at 32 mph, make sure you peel your Support Our Troops sticker off the trunk.  We wouldn't want anyone to see that symbolism, now would we?

    Toyota - Stupidity Beyond Comprehension

    I just saw footage of the mechanics of the sticking gas pedal.  It is a complex design, riddled with detailed small parts that must mesh together much like two cogs in a high-precision machine.Why?  Why has this complex design been introduced when such basic, simple...

    Boring Mental Dysfunctions

      It's such a bore to have those multiple account people resurface, trying to get a leg up repeatedly under one identity, then the next. This has to be one of the saddest online charades ever. If ever that old cliche insult, "I feel sorry for you" were appropriate, it's...

    "i Have Not Been True To My Values."

    Yes you have; you're just ashamed of them. We are all true to our values. They are what define us. We do not define them, as much as we'd like to believe that fantasmal thought. Excuses are words trying to justify failure.

    Bewildered By The Hypocrisy.

    I Was Late To Catch On

    I was late to catch on. I grew up on a farm; we fixed everything that got broken. It had to work right. We had to work hard. I never cheated in school. Once, an entire class got caught for cheating on a test, but I did not cheat. I was the only one in the -entire- class...

    Predictable.

    "Predictable" It's a characteristic of so much these days. We aren't supposed to be predictable. We're supposed to be magnificent, unpredictable, mysterious creatures. I think at one time we were all capable of wowing each other with those traits. Perhaps back in the...

    Devices, Revised For the General Public.

    Some things act as filtering devices for the undesirable. We need these devices. We need those who are dysfunctional to let it be known. Undesirable behavior by a human is a sign - a notice, a warning about that particular person (many times a group of people). Many systems in...

    Lower.

    I'm at a point now where I feel so little respect for society that I am questioning my ability to function within it. People are just one big mess. Their actions, for the most part, have absolutely no logical foundation. To attempt to gain the respect of those I need to in...

    The Elimination Of Wrong.

    As unethical, immoral things are justified, so will the machine continue to roll.  All it needs is the occasional application of force.

    What a Massive Effort.

    Many EP members' entire identity is but one massive effort to voice their unhappiness with one particular notion. Their username reflects their bitterness about this one particular notion; their ridicule of this thing they despise oftentimes makes no logical sense. They are full...

    "Lack of integrity has reached epic proportions during recent decades. We all know it but it seems as though we have learned to tolerate it. Lack of integrity is tearing us apart inwardly, in our relationships, and collectively. Lack of integrity is the secret problem that...

    I Lowered My Standards For Humans Another Big Notch Today

    Why does it seem like humans are always out to get each other? Is that only way for people to get a laugh and feel better about themselves? To screw with others heads and lives? To mess with peoples futures and reputations?

      There's a man in the Kroger - looks like a crack dealer, complete with "cornrows", black pants and shirt, with a tie that is made to look like a $100 bill. He's the manager.
