    They Will Kick You When You Are Lying On The Ground

    I have been one of the weak ones, a few times in my life.And I will tell you, there's always someone to take advantage of that. It works exactly like in the nature; the smallest of the pack gets pushed aside. So goddam ridiculous, I mean, we're all going to survive right, we're...

    I Would Rather Live In A Mountain Cave, Isolated From Everyone

    I have seen other people who walk across the street WHILE they are texting someone, failing to look in either direction beforehand. Or people who are always on their cell phone while physically present among their friends. And still other people who will cluster in the middle of...

    Not long ago I heard a story about a guy who had to pull his car over because he was having a heart attack... some 17 year old kid found him like that, dying in his car, and instead of helping him, the kid pushed him out of the car and stole his wallet and then his car. WTF...

    Im amazed at the inability of some people to

    Capitalism Is The One To Blame
