Over the years, i’ve had the odd thing about me that although there were stupid people, they could learn to have common sense. Some time later, I found that not all of them would actually be willing unless their worldview was proven false, and the wool burned from their eyes. I wanted to be a voice to teach the ignorant, to show them that what they were taught isn’t necessarily true.
Now, I wear sunglasses because the blurred, darkened view of what I see is easier on my eyes instead of the focused, clear view of the stupidity I see in this world.
I seek hope in the victories in the name of intelligence and common sense, and get despair in the immensely painful failures I see in the victories in the name of ignorance and stupidity.
Sometimes I wonder if in old age if I will be nearly as stubborn towards the next generation.
As many of you folks may know, I’m pro choice. Why am I pro-choice? Simple. What would you say if you had something within you, that you had to carry for nine months that you weren’t entirely prepared for? That the doctors tell you that you likely won’t survive if you carry it? That it would be best to have it extracted from your body before it develops nerve endings and thus feel pain? You’d get rid of it, wouldn’t you? No one is saying babies or pregnancy is some sort of disease. Sure, if a woman doesn’t want a baby, she could put it up for adoption, if she wanted to carry it to term. But the thing is, there are a large amount of children that have been put up for adoption that have yet to be adopted. Now I bet you pro-lifers are thinking along the lines of “What the fuck? It’s a LIVING BEING!” No, technically, up until it has working nerve endings, and a working brain, its essentially an additional part of a human body. A part of a someone. And that someone can and should always be able to choose whether they want that part of them taken out or not.
The reason I’m voting for Obama again, or voting democrat in general? Its the same reason I’ve always voted: For an equal chance. For a country who is run by people who know what their fellow man is going through, rather than people who know only what those whose pockets are lined with gold are going through. For a country not run by religion, fear, inequality and false facts, but a country run by actual facts, equality, and what this country needs.
Comp is out of commission, so i will be limited till i get the part(s) to replace it.
Truth be told, I’m a very difficult person to truly get pissed off at anyone. At most, many people only annoy or frustrate me slightly. Those who do manage to invoke my anger tend to regret it rather quickly. Think of me as a strange lamb. For some reason, I am larger than usual, and have a rather curious bump on my back, that when you poke it, you’ll hear a strange growl, and a slight buzzing noise that’s almost unnoticeable. Then, one day, you poke a little bit to hard, and you hear and feel a texture akin to a knife going through paper mache, or poking a croissant that’s toasted to a crisp inside and out. You then realise that this isn’t a lamb, it’s a lamb costume. Inside this costume, is something beyond nature. Beyond nature, as for some reason there’s a mountain lion and a hornet’s nest living in a comfortable symbiotic relationship with one another. The mountain lion attacks you, tearing you to shreds, but leaving you just alive enough to where the hornets slowly sting you to death.
I think that’s an ample enough reason.
