Some Things I don't Believe; and maybe some I do

If you aren't part of the solution you are part of the problem. No, not necessarily. I am not in any way solving the problem of AIDS, yet I am in no way contributing to the spread, creation, or any thing else to do with it. Same for the problem of psychotic gang members. I don't create them, I don't take them out---I'm not there--not a part of the problem or the solution.

That one is just a way to encourage people not to mind their own business.

If you want to get to heaven, you have to raise a little hell. Guess that one depends upon the individual, his/her/its view of heaven and hell, etc. Makes no sense to me. How can someone tell me what I have to do to go somewhere they've never been?

Better to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all---jury's still out on that one. I'd say better to have loved and won than to have got dumped when you'd have preferred a different outcome. But who knows, you often come out ahead. Still, what sticks in the memory is not the loved part but the lost part, so it sucks and doesn't seem better than much.

Any number of platitudes regarding unity and doing things together usually send the BS meter way up. I don't think unity and togetherness are what is lacking. Minding your own business and being honest about it is what is lacking. Go talk solidarity to someone else. I'm not the stuff of any people's movement or republic.

It is interesting that under our tax code you are only rewarded if you inform the authorities of your charitable acts, which must be to approved charities or organizations. Just selecting a person, animal, or family to assist, then doing it gets you no tax break. It shows that the tax system is wrong. In any case it is not their business who I help. Perhaps if tax were fair, constitutional and not an obvious tool for control and evil doing, this would be a non issue.

If you've suckered for letting your labor be brokered, you probably like middle men so most of what I say sounds nuts. You like being controlled. And you like getting what may not legitimately be yours, as long as it is official so you can pretend it is honest. Perfect fodder for the people's republic. One hint: Unions are businesses, and huge lobby groups. Why is it so much of their management seems to be somewhat gangster culture oriented? Does that make sense at this point in time? I don't know. Have at it.

Those who've never been a "working man", or down and out, often have lofty ideas regarding how society can be compassionate and help all the dumbass people like that out.

I can tell you from experience that the policies designed for such purpose over the last several decades have generally exacerbated the problem, rewarded idiocy and dishonesty, while making it tougher for a person to start from scratch. Especially hard for those who in no way want to wait in government lines or jump through government hoops to get assistance.

Those who have unlimited compassion using public resources to express it actually have zero compassion and are fooling themselves. I can be generous as hell with your bank account. I am willing even to decide how much is enough when it comes to your wealth. Isn't that my right? I decide then I come with guns and take the "excess". How can that be wrong if I do it for a good cause, or the better good of society?

The stuff about dealing with anger by hitting pillows or screaming has never been something I was sure made sense. The more I expressed my rage, the more rage there was, and I hate the way pounding pillows feels. I find the best way to get rid of the anger is to throw small children and animals as far as I can in open fields. That and running really fast head first into large boulders or trees.

Can't make comments any easier, I don't think. People are having trouble--google tries to kidnap them. I'll loosen up one more thing and let's see. Please give it a try
