Dixie Chicks

One thing that brought this to mind is that they were amongst the first celebrities in America to point out that George W, or "King Dubbya" is a schmuck for his war on Iraq. So, what happens? All of a sudden, "Good patriotic Americans" don't want them playing concerts in their hometown just because anyone who speaks ill of him is with the "bad guys". Give me an effing break here, I am thinking that its kind of ridiculous, when people get up the kind of stones it takes to write a group of people death threats just because they voice their shame and criticism of a political leader in a supposedly democratic country. Then in 2006, they come back with this song called "not ready to make nice" criticizing the war and these know nothing malakas who would tell them to shut up and sing or else. My view on this is that the country isn't yet ready to hear a strong opinioned woman telling the country its in a stupid pointless war for oil and money. Historically, war comes down to this. "You have something I want, so I'm going to send my guys to take it from you," and basically, its no better than rival mafia families trying to control a selected area in a battle over turf.
Except, this time; anyone that dares speak against it is a threat to national security and needs to be put in some deep dark place like Guantanamo bay, because they're obviously a "falafel eating terrorist". Although, personally I think terrorists eat at Macdonald's, since eating that crap would piss off even fred rogers if he were still alive.
Mostly, I hate country music, since the music has to do with boring crap that I couldn't be paid to listen to, the Dixie chicks make the exception to that rule because they said for Bush to essentially "sit and spin" on his foreign policy regarding Iraq, and refused to back down despite the pressure from the government, the media and crazy assed hillbillies wanting them dead.
I hope I find someone as unwavering in her opinions as Natalie Maines.
I don't see any harm in saying things like "I'm ashamed he's from Texas" "what a dumb f*ck" and "You're a dumb f*ck". My thoughts exactly are "Wow, she's from Texas! She obviously has some guts to say that, and she's smart enough to see the effing truth". Really, and honestly, THAT'S what its all about. TRUTH. George w Bush is now revealed to everyone who isn't an idiot as just that a "dumb f*ck".
I'm thinking that with all of the crap the Dixie chicks went through, there should be a follow up album with a title song called "I'm right and you all can suck it" or perhaps "Told you that no good bastard was a dumb f*ck" which would surprisingly fit into line with your traditional country song. All ya have to do is add a line about your dog running away and all, and its good to go.
So, despite all of those flag waving republicans still loyal to king George, I think that based on that, the Dixie chicks are the best band ever and if I actually believed in wasting money on concert tickets on any band, it would be them.
But I hate crowds. I'm not that eager to see people perform. Especially considering the pricks in my hometown. No thank you.
My final thought:
I hope I get a girlfriend who is just as outspoken as the lead singer for the Dixie chicks. That would be awesome.
Ironically enough, she's the first Libra woman I actually like.
(so, not all of them say "like" 50,000 times in a damned sentence.)
Well, I still want an Aries woman.
Someone with pent up hostility.
meh, I'm a sucker for punishment. hehehe
Until next time, take care of yourselves, and DON'T watch that douche bag Jerry Springer!

Being in a fraternity makes you greek as much as being in a donut shop makes me a cop.

Yeah, vlakas; I just said it. Being a frat boy or a sorority girl who uses Greek letters as a slogan makes you maybe to the Greek community as a retarded cousin if that. But seriously, don't call yourself Greek if you speak English, drink and aren't orthodox. I know that fraternities do charity work and stuff, and they're not just out there to get wasted, but on the same token, if you want to call yourself a greek person, you had damned well be prepared to do some research about your past, your country from the classical era to the present one.
Know anything about the saints of the Greek Orthodox church? NO?
(All right then, most Greek Orthodox people don't either, anyway so that's not a demerit on your part)
My point is, don't call yourself something if you don't give a rat's ass about real culture.
Greek people of the modern era don't go around in f*cking togas and drink beer saying stupid idiotic things to other people.
Greek people go around in normal clothes and do that when there's a party.
But seriously, that's not all the time. They're not Irish. (kidding there)
Of course, not all Greeks smoke or drink.
I mean, I have heard of some fraternities that do some outlandish shit, and its worse than anything that happens at a Greek party. Why? Because those malakas can't handle their liquor and duct tape someone to a pole in their underwear in the middle of January.
What's the worst that's happened at a party at the community hall? Some person puked in the bathroom sink, and he wasn't even Greek.
My point in this long, drawn out commentary is; If you're gonna act like an idiot and call yourself Greek, at least learn the language.
Just because you belong to a fraternity and wear letters doesn't make you Greek.
If you can take those letters and write a sentence, than you might be.
Sure, every culture has its idiots, and Greek is no exception, but if you don't even learn the language, then you're just another Eglezo(English) wannabe.
Until next time,take care of yourselves and get me an ouzaki while you're at it.

l33t speak

Yes, you have probably run into it in it's various forms from the brain dead idiots out there if you use the internet. essentially, I am typing about those morons who think that "dose" is the correct way to say a word. My example here being "dose anyone have a problem with that?". Now, when I was a kid, and that word was encountered, usually after word, where would be something a kin to "three times daily for adults. once daily for children. consult poison control center if overdose occurs",or something to that effect. I wonder, who in their right mind would even think of putting idiotic crap such as this up? The worst kind of part to this is now, all of a sudden, people are not only using numbers in place of letters, but now when someone actually wants to correct them, they get called things such as "nerd" for God forbid wanting to sound like someone who can actually finish a coherent sentence without f*cking numbers!
I wasn't aware that in the post modern era, that the only criteria for being called a nerd is not sounding like a brain dead dumbass! And speaking of which, people use monikers such as "dum ass" "douc bag" "fagit" and "fuk". I have no problem with people swearing or throwing insults out there in the internet, but for the love of all that is sane and nice, spell your insults CORRECTLY, otherwise you're just going to be laughed at for the contrite lemming that you are. "Here's your dunce cap, now go back home, your village is missing its idiot!" is what I am compelled to want to say to people such as that. In a society where "like" is overused, and people say "your a dum ass" and "waht is ur probelm aswhole?" I tend to get a massive migrane.
So, my final thought is this (Yes in tradition of making fun of springer and to make a point at the same time): If you are going to interact with people online, first crack open a book, or READ SOMETHING online. YES READ, you heard me correctly.
Its because of this bullshit text messaging trend that people can't spell correctly.
So, once you do this, then come online. Otherwise, take your computer back to the damn store, get your money back and use it on text minutes for your cell phone.
I think that personally, I'm doing humanity a service here, since I don't want to be reading through this bastardization of the english language every goddamned time I go online to play a game or to chat on MSN. take care of yourselves and don't drink the kool aid.

Saint Theresa's prayer

My mom sent me an email, and even though I don't believe in sending chain letters, I thought I would share it with my readers (Even if that doesn't fill my quota), and as such, took out the snippets such as "send this back to me";


I am picking 11 people who I think would want to receive this.

In case you are not aware, Saint Theresa is known as the Saint of the Little Ways, meaning she believed in doing the little things in life well and with great love.

She is represented by roses. May everyone who receives this message be blessed.



REMEMBER to make a wish before you read the prayer.



Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. Read the prayer below.


Saint Theresa's Prayer

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be confident knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

discrimination

We as a society like to call ourselves an enlightened one, but I would argue that this assessment is nothing short of a steaming frakking pile of what the neighbor's dog left on the lawn. Look at how everyone who is labeled as "different" or non-conformist is treated in their everyday lives.
We have our autistic people, who are labeled as retards, despite the fact that they are ten times more intelligent than the average person, but happen to behave in ways that are contradictory to an orderly society.
As a person with Asperger's syndrome (as though I have some sort of disease that you can cure with antibiotics or something) I have been treated very poorly by society, who expects me to act like them, with their harsh judgments and hateful behavior.
So, I can say that being different, and being able to empathize with others who are picked on, I feel sorry for them.
For example, look at the transgendered individuals and how people treat them.
As walking, talking freak shows, just because we can't understand them.
Has it ever occurred to anybody that these people are still human despite the fact that they might not conform to society's expectations?
The reason I say this is because, I having Asperger's, can relate to the pain of being excluded in things for the way I have and will behave.
Now, the behaviors of those with Asperger's and those who are transgendered happen to differ; but the thing is both groups happen to deviate from a sociological norm.
Maybe the challenge before us as a people isn't to understand what makes men want to be women, or women want to be men, or even why those people with Asperger's happen to act "weird" and do crazy outlandish things that work for them, but scare the hell out of you.
Maybe the challenge is to simply accept "those people", as not "those people" (And I know we tend to label people we can't understand or tolerate with this label) but as your fellow humans and learn not only to live with them, but actually befriend them.
But not because they have a condition, God no.
Learn to think of people outside yourself who are different as learning opportunities for yourself.
That's the problem with society today, we could care less about the person next to us, and we look out for our own asses forsaking even our own family sometimes.
I'm not saying that transgendered and Asperger's have anything to do with one another except that both face scorning and ridicule by a society that can't accept or tolerate either.
The one thing that really pisses me off is the fact that people that get cast aside into the pit of obscurity are often the ones in our society who have the most to contribute, and if we saw past the hatred and fear, we'd get to enrich ourselves, rather than getting fat and lazy on the destructive programs such as dr phil, survivor, american/canadian/pop idol, and other shite out their to make us stop thinking for ourselves.
Is it then, a real wonder why we get blindsided and dumbfounded by lying politicians, crackpot assholes like in scientology, or advertisements that make people feel worthless for not buying their product?
In my not so humble opinion for what it's worth;
It doesn't, or at least shouldn't matter what your race, sexual orientation, mental status, gender identity, religion (even if you're ok with paying a shite load of money to rich people and losing it) is.
My take on it is if we're able to figure out that there is a God who gives half a damn about us, then this entity isn't going to hate anybody for being different.
My theory is, if God did, then God would make us all the same, or kill us all off, because let's face it; We're all different and equally as fucked up in our own little ways. The difference between you and me or you and someone with the wrong gender is you're accepted by society and accepted as normal, whereas the people with the wrong outfit for their assigned gender, or the people who say the inappropriate things that you don't want to hear (Asperger's)are frowned upon; and the way to cure them?
drugs! the shout of "be normal".
Well, I know that I don't have a surgery or treatment to make me like everyone else, and I'm glad that I don't because I like thinking for myself and asking people questions, even if they're difficult. Its good to think and use your brain for once.
As for those who do have a surgery option to make their situation better, whether born as men or women; why the hell is it an issue? Let them be who they want to be!
This affects you in no way, shape or form WHATSOEVER.
My problem, or so I've been told is I don't know how to say what's appropriate.
Translation: I think its a flaming load of crap to tell you what you want to hear if I think its a lie.
There are a lot of hate groups posing as good people.
Fred Phelps, anyone?
Seriously, as a Christian I think its just plain wrong to hide your hate behind your religion. But not just as a religion based person, but as a rational, thinking human, I think it is BS to say the least.
Its the same kind of thinking that got my cousin beat to within an inch of his life.
Humans are looking for reasons to hate each other, just look at the online games where people are divided into factions that can fight each other.
They don't get the fact that its just a damned game and that the people on that game have feelings too.
People on the same faction will treat each other like dog poo as well, heck, they never even heard of cooperation when competition will do just fine.
Love my neighbor? Don't think so, I'd rather expose him/her for the collosial douchebag/bitch that he/she is.
What do we as a people gain from spite?
Who the hell are we trying to impress?
please tell me what prize awaits the person who is the biggest asshole, because I want to know. Is it cash?! Is it that people will love you, ironically enough?
Bacause, it seems that the people that spew out the hate and violence against others are people looking for the same things. Love and acceptance from somewhere.
Well, you're not going to get them by putting a bullet in someone's head or spitting on them, now are you?
We need rational thought and clear minds.
So, switch off the idiot box known as the television; stop playing the video games for five minutes, and go out into the world and meet someone different than yourself.
Try to be friends, maybe?
I know its a stretch, but hey; if we reached for our goodwill as often as we reached for our foul words and weapons there would be less corpses and maybe more understanding and cooperation and maybe even less poverty in the world.
IT ALL STARTS WITH YOU;
What have you done today?
What ARE YOU DOING?
What are you GOING TO DO today?
