Subtract out the impact, and the fall is all you get. So it takes 2 beers to remember now, and 3 more to forget, that I loved you so. Yeah, I loved you so what.

haha I was reading through this.
Remembering how a friend meant the world to me. How I thought I mattered to them.
Feeling like I would've given this kid anything. And I probably would have, because that's how dumb I am.
Hope you're drumming.

Nobody gives a shit about anyone but themselves, and I wish I had that gene that let me not give a fuck. That selfish fuckin gene that just allowed my egoism to ooze out through my fucking teeth. Fuck all of you.
Fuck the fact that I'm always giving to people that don't give me shit. And you know what, I'm not even asking for material fucking things. Fuck people who I give things and myself to endlessly that can't even be decent enough to be a fucking friend. Fuck you. I'm over it.
Shits going in a drawer.
Because you're a fucking piece of shit.
Oh, and for the record. Yeah, I'm way above you.

I cannot fucking wait to see this country. And I wont think about a single fucking one of you. Because you have no qualms about walking all over the human spirit. And you have no qualms about staying the same forever, never even considering a goal. Much less a greater purpose. I hope you're really fucking happy you shallow piece of shits.
The fucking end.

3 Were Surprised To Hear Their Own Eulogy| You Had A Lot Of Nothing To Say

I ran into a kid wearing a Neil Halstead shirt, and I got excited, and told him that I've been listening to Neil forever. He looked at me and said a few words, but kept giving me that "I'm a scene kid, and don't approve of anyone listening to this. Because I'm totally cooler and listened to it first." I told him how Two Stones was my favorite song for the longest time. He clearly didn't know what I was talking about. It's off of Neil's first album. So I laughed and walked away.
...I came home and wondered when Neil Halstead became the cat's pajamas...it turns out he has like a music spotlight on Myspace or some shit. Figures. hahaha. People are so stupid. And Neil Halstead is still muchmuch cooler than I or any little scene kids will ever be.
Two Stones in My Pocket is also still one of the best songs ever. Years pass, and good songs will remain. Have faith.

So hold nice and close
Once you get to your soul
So that when it is cold
You won't feel so alone
Cuz the roads that you take
May just crack and break
With the changes you will confront
You know some people they just won't understand
No just wont understand these things

I don't want to know a thousand people and call them friends.
I wish to know a few people and know them just as well as friends.

You Had A Lot Of Nothing To Say

It's been a while... [30 Jun 2008|02:24pm]
I know I am still a child, for I ask questions to which there will never be answers. Who's with me? I ask darkness. And darkness does not respond. I wade in the echoe of mine own voice, and wallow. Sometimes for longer increments of time than necessary.
But I read like my life is at stake. I can deal with people never talking to me, I can. I cannot deal with never hearing their thoughts. I am truly fascinated, friend.
I have this mental list of many things I want to do within my life. I'm constantly adding to it. And it keeps me moving. Next up is fly fishing in Oregon. And to darkness I ask "Who's with me?"
No response.
But in the next year, I'll find my way to Oregon.
I know I will.

Oh I won't forget,
That everything, you know it's happening, happening for a reason
So there ain't no need, no need in worrying
Just get your job done.

1. Ron Paul is inconsistent. Though he calls himself a man of principle and is apparently admired as such by his ardent fans, his principles seem somewhat elastic. He rails against the Bush administration for its supposed assault on civil liberties, yet when he was asked at one of the debates whether Scooter Libby deserved a pardon, he said no. “He doesn’t deserve one because he was instrumental in leading the Congress and the people to support a war that we didn’t need to be in.” Notice that he didn’t say it was because Libby was guilty of committing a crime. No, because Libby argued for a policy with which Paul disagreed, he deserved to serve time in prison. Ron Paul, the libertarian, who presumably values liberty above all, is willing to deprive someone else of his because of a policy disagreement?

2. Ron Paul is historically challenged. He argues that by embracing isolationism, he fits within a Republican tradition stretching back to Eisenhower “who stopped the Korean War” and including Nixon “who stopped the war in Vietnam.” Let’s recap. Eisenhower threatened to use nuclear weapons against China. It was the Eisenhower administration that had a hand in toppling Iran’s Mohammad Mossedegh (an intervention that Paul has elsewhere cited as causing the United States grief 25 years later when the Islamists took power). Eisenhower also intervened in Guatemala, Cuba (planning for the Bay of Pigs began during his tenure) and Lebanon.

Nixon, an isolationist? Most observers, whatever they may make of detente with the U.S.S.R. and the opening to China, agree that Nixon was an emphatic internationalist. For the record, he intervened in many countries including Chile, Peru and Cambodia. And he saved Israel by resupplying her during the Yom Kippur war. Neither his successes nor failures grew out of a Paulesque policy of “minding our own business.”

3. Ron Paul is unserious. Suggesting that you will eliminate the IRS, the CIA, the FBI and other government agencies within weeks of taking office is ridiculous. These are bumper stickers, not serious reform proposals.

4. Ron Paul is too cozy with kooks and conspiracy theorists. As syndicated radio host Michael Medved has pointed out, Ron Paul’s newspaper column was carried by the American Free Press (a parent publication of the Hitler-praising Barnes Review). Paul may not have been aware of this. But though invited by Medved to disavow any connection, Paul has so far failed to respond.

Paul has appeared on the Alex Jones radio program not once, not twice, but three times. Jones is the sort who believes that black helicopters are coming to impose a police state on America. He is quite concerned about the Bohemian Grove, the Bilderbergers, the federal election system (it’s rigged, of course) and so on. Naturally, he believes that 9/11 was an inside job. Ron Paul has even appeared in a Jones film, "Endgame," the point of which is apparently that the Bilderbergers are plotting to control the world. They’ve already got Europe (through the European Union) and now are on the verge of securing America by means of a North American union that would unite Mexico, the United States and Canada.

Even if Paul says nothing insane in this film, his appearance alone calls his judgment into question. I have not seen "Endgame," but I have heard a tape of Paul on the Jones program just after the 2006 election. Jones asked the congressman whether the victory for the Democrats wasn’t a “rejection of neo-fascist imperialism.” Paul replied, “Yeah ... This was a healthy election as far as I’m concerned.”

Ron Paul is the favorite candidate of a number of racist, neo-Nazi and conspiracist Web sites. While Paul cannot be held accountable for the views of cranks and kooks, he can disavow their support and return their checks. He received $500 from Don Black, the proprietor of Stormfront.org and former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. He has not yet returned it.

Moreover, Paul seems to be playing a sly game with his conspiracy-minded fans. He does not explicitly endorse the crazier theories out there, but he hints at dark forces in the U.S. government threatening our liberties, he inveighs against the “neo-cons” (shorthand for Jews in some circles), and he gives aid and comfort to the paranoid by appearing on their favorite radio shows.

No, Ron Paul is not my candidate. Not for president. He might make a dandy new leader for the Branch Davidians.
