Frank

Take a good look around you. There are many people of a rainbow of colors who would rather blame others than take any action on making their lives better. Give me one good reason why I should have any sympathy for them?

I think my sympathy is best used on people who are trying to dig themselves out of their situation. For instance, why should an young adult who was brought to America as a child be denied the right to a higher education? It wasn't their actions that caused the problem they are facing. But they are doing the best they can, and still getting nowhere fast.

I'm sorry Frank, but being human only gives me a definite amount of compassion and sympathy. And when you get down to brass tacks, I'm the only one who should decide where it goes.

I have total sympathy for anyone who struggles to be better than they are but only contempt for people who are self-satisfied in their ignorance and then whine when they get corncobbed every four years.

I went to some Tea Party rallies, my friend, and I didn't see any mill workers or ditch diggers or janitors. Mostly white middle class gun totin' Bible thumpin' potential coronaries who are skeered cause there's a Negro in the White House who's gonna rape their daughters and turn their sons into homos. Who wouldn't know what the Constitution really says if it slapped them on the ass. Who will piss everything good and valuable about this country right out to sea because they're too stupid to know when they're being fucked over.

I'm nothing special. I'm as slow and full of shit as anybody. But it frustrates me and shames me so when I see people wearing their ignorance like a name tag at a moron convention it pisses me off and I write posts like this one.

We want their sons to be homos. So that they can turn that part of the world around. In fabulous ways, obviously. hehe.

Mike, and enough of your jibes at the noble anarchist. At least those wackos you despise want no chains, unlike people you respect who want chains on everything.

Mike -
Did you see the news reports last week as the KKK protested Westboro Baptist?

Yeech.
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

steve,
nope, i missed the story. What a bizzare joke.
Interesting is the comment; "members claiming to be from the Ku Klux Klan."
------

"Counterprotesters confront Westboro Baptist Church at Arlington"

""It's the soldier that fought and died and gave them that right to free speech," said Dennis LaBonte, the self-described "Imperial Wizard" of the KKK group that he said he formed several years ago"

""People like them say it's white power ... white supremacy," Phelps said. "The Bible doesn't say anywhere that it's an abomination to be born of a certain gender or race.""

it's good they each have some mainstream values.

does the heart good

I would never disrespect noble intent , only foolish words and action, no matter the ideology.

the chains are for violent morons.
the chains are to protect property from the childish minds that think everything should be free.

the chains are needed because so many have no respect for other people, Frank.
