on and on and on

so let's see
my last post.....about idiots...


my posts however about pretty shoes, trips and music,
oh and things like throw pillows and
cool homes that most of us will never be able to afford

those people like.

so as to not alienate 95% of the people who chose to spend a few moments on my blog
...i know i should keep the pie hole shut.

to those i say, fare ye well and a sincere thanks for visiting.

perhaps i can pin some of the blame on steve jobs, no?
after all i have this handy dandy little device that follows me everywhere
...all the time
and has the ability to feed me such an obnoxious amount of news
it makes my head spin.

perhaps i should blame part of it on the politicians?
 after all it's in large part because of their bickering and finger pointing,
their spin-doctoring and their self preservation
that we have a fucked society of overly medicated, under employed individuals
protesting the sheer inequality and the unfairness of it all.

but i should probably just own it and blame it on the crack
because before the damn crack,
 i really wouldn't have cared this much.

before the crack
the fact that 50 exotic animals, many on the endangered list
and many of which were actually de-clawed and had in fact been hand fed since birth
who must have felt they hit redneck hunting pay dirt when they took to the woods
to "defend the citizens" armed with high powered rifles....
before the crack, this might not have
absolutely blown my mind with sadness.
before the crack
the fact that entire groups of people protest against
and make people feel bad for using birth control,
who have the nerve to tell them it blocks gods grace.
who then from the security of their own cushy homes tell people it's murder
...and yet remain conspicuously absent when it comes time for
 maybe before the crack
the self righteousness and arrogance of it all
wouldn't have made me see red.

before the crack
to the very residents whose drinking wells they tainted with methane....
that wouldn't have seemed so very wrong.

but it does.
 it really does.
at times it seems the crack has made much of the world feel
 overwhelmingly, depressingly, heart wrenchingly

thoughts on this:

if you want to shoot something ...fine, have at it....
but at least shoot your own foot or
don't casually put a bullet in something that makes you uncomfortable.

if you want to have 20 babies and can take care of them...god bless..get it on.
don't make others feel less for taking responsibility for their life and body.

if you make a mistake...clean it up.
don't go taking an big elephant sized dump one someone else
and expect to walk away scott free.

it seems pretty darn simple...
kind of golden rule-ish and shit right?

so happy friday....
go have fun and for goodness sake...
be nice and mind your own bees-nas.

and hey, wear some hot shoes while your at it.

Thoughtful and beautiful all at once, just like you! Things in this world terrify me, but I have to get all "glass half full" and pray we get it right some of the time, or else I won't be able to peel back the covers and face the day. The next generation is going to have some serious shit to fix.
