Don’t read this.

Don’t write this.

Socialism- “Social and economic doctrine that calls for public rather than private ownership or control of property and natural resources. According to the socialist view, individuals do not live or work in isolation but live in cooperation with one another. Furthermore, everything that people produce is in some sense a social product, and everyone who contributes to the production of a good is entitled to a share in it. Society as a whole, therefore, should own or at least control property for the benefit of all its members.”
-Britannica Online

“Public” in this statement is not public at all. It’s government. They control your decisions.

If you believe this “in this together” mentality you need to check around you. There are charities and churches that do so much good for the poor. The best part, and what separates them from government, is that they can actually take it on a case by case basis and make sure each individual is becoming a BETTER person.

The problem with government is this. They can’t make decisions and they can’t make exceptions.

If rule A6204 says that only families with 8 children qualify for X amount of funds, then they get X amount of funds. That’s the rule.

Private organizations can deal with things on a case by case. Because it’s in their best interest.

Also the government is poor at follow up and improvement. If you qualify you qualify until you don’t qualify.

Devastating earthquakes happen because of intense pressure build-up and then, whammy. The thing becomes a massive catastrophe and destroys thousands of homes and lives.

Our homeland and our foreign relations is a major earthquake.

Homeland. We have too many people not working and feeding off the government. Now eventually we will have to tell these people to get a job. But instead of pissing people off slowly we have let this problem build.

Taking people off government funding will make them do 1 of 2 things.

1. Get a job…

2. Steal and plunder…

Now if we were smart in the first place and had some backbone we would have started telling people along time ago to get moving.

Then they would choose 1 of the 2 options and we would deal with them that way.

But now we have let too many people live this way. And it’s building.

When we finally give them the boot it will be much more destructive than it was before.

And now politicians want to add people with medical bills to this same category.

Now people always say that we need governmental help for single mothers, which is a valid point.

But no.

A single mother was a woman and a man at one point no matter the relationship.

So if the father is alive we need stricter punishments on child support laws to make these people get the picture.

If the father is dead people need to get life insurance.

If you didn’t know about life insurance then you should have gone to school.

If school doesn’t teach about life insurance and important things, but you know the circumference of…I’ll refrain. Then we need to change the school system.

If you don’t have a high school diploma you probably can’t read well, can’t write well, can’t get a good job, can’t barely even tie your own shoes, and yet we let you have babies? What are we thinking?

“It’s my decision.” I can hear it all over the place now.

So let me get this straight government. I can’t cut hair unless I have a license. I can’t do a mortgage without a license. I can’t sell homes without a license. I can’t drive a semi truck without a license. But I CAN RAISE A CHILD?!! Besides the semi truck none of these endanger human life…maybe cut someone’s ear pretty bad.

But this all comes back to basic moral fragment of our society. Our society is one massive orgy and the people who aren’t in on it are watching online.

Foreign Policy. Well the world is an earthquake as well. And trying to bring peace everywhere will only result in bad news for the future.

China- We owe China so much money…so much. Now if they own us they are going to want something from us. Guess what? Information and technology.

How do you think they got so advanced so fast? As far as I remember they were all farming and riding bikes 8 weeks ago.

And now with Russia, we have a KGB over there acting nice and invading countries. Hmmm sound familiar?

If not I’m referring to HITLER.

I’m sick of this now…


Coming to Terms

Everytime I do something and I try to involve my “feelings” or what I am told is “God” I just get way confused.

In my two years time service marathon in Wisconsin I would go crazy trying to “feel” what I should do.

And you know what? Everytime I did that I would just go crazy and think too hard.

“Is that a yes? Is that a No? Is that God? Is that me? Is that my blood? Is that my heartburn?” I mean seriously…

But then now it’s just translated itself into my personal life and my dating life. I just meet a girl and start to like her and then I start thinking too hard and then I get these doubts and I immediately start translating them into some God given answer to a question that I don’t even want to think about yet.

Then on top of that I tell myself that I felt like this with the last 4 girls that didn’t work out, so that must mean this won’t work out.

What the..? I mean seriously. This is why I hate including my “feelings” in ANYTHING that I do. Because it doesn’t work.

When I step back and think of when I really felt that desire to become something better, that feeling is something else. But my mind wants answers without doing my own work.

So the conclusion is that I need to cut out my own heart or do cocain until I can’t feel anything at all. Then do whatever the H#@$ I want…

I hate overanylizing everything I do that could potentially affect me dramatically…

My own mind is trying to ruin me…

I’ve decided not to listen to music for a month. I started around August 1st and I’m going to go until the end of August.

The only thing I’ll let myself listen to is the new Kings of Leon Compact Disk if it leaks early, it’s set to come out around September 23rd. So I’ve listened to the 2 songs that have already come out and I’m stoked for it.

It’s amazing what any of these bands, as people, can do together. I’ve been writing alot of music, and so far I’ve only met one kid in this whole pious state that I can work with. His name is Sohrab and he’s from Iran. He has the mentality but hasn’t really developed his skills yet. His voice is milk chocolate though and I’m stoked to see what this kid can do.

We’ve been throwing ideas back and forth. The thing that kills me is that I’ll write like 5 or 6 songs, and then only one will, in my opinion, feel really good. The other stuff I feel is just plain…vanilla plain.

I look around at all these kids that play music, I wonder, how do they not get it? Can’t they listen to their stuff tomorrow and hear how bad it is. I’m so picky about what I write, and I feel like I don’t give myself enough credit.

But then I just straight up slam myself down as hard as I can. I try to be my own worst critic because I don’t want to end up like these kids who give themselves too much room for error and embarrassment. I don’t understand how you can just pat yourself on the back when you’re just doing something everyone else is doing.

What’s the point?
