    LIfe sucks!

    Nothing what so ever good has happened in the past three years and that has nothing to do with our current President, the economy or anything else. Hell, come to think of it, nothing good has happened in the last ten years for that matter.

    Life just plain sucks these days.

    No, I am not considering harming myself... I just wish there was something to celebrate for a change! Anyone have a cold beer they can pass me?

    Saw a pretty girl in the park today.

    The primroses are coming up.

    My boy has a 3.2 gpa jr year. I never got that ever.

    You look around, you can find lots of blessings.

    Where are you looking?

    I see plenty of good happening in the world.

    Don't believe this temporary mental state, Immie.

    Compared to what? :dunno:

    Just being born in "The West" circa 2012 you're among the richest 33% world-wide currently and among the top 20% of all humans.

    Just being born a human makes one's potential for enlightenment greater than that of any of the other five realms of existence.

    This is the first post I've done here that meet "right speech" criteria. It's true, it's necessary, and it's beneficial.

    Yahoo.

    Thanks, Immie

    What does wealth have to do with anything?

    Even Bill Gates can't buy an America that is not run by thieves. He can't buy a country where we consider each other brothers and sisters again instead of those "damned old conservatives" or those ('xcuse the French) "fucking progressives".

    Hell, the way we treat each other, we may as well live in Afghanistan!

    Think of how you treat others. Isn't that something to celebrate? If not, it can change.

    But we don't.

    You shouldn't make the perfect the enemy of the good.

    You don't have to look for the clouds in the middle of the silver lining.

    Are you addressing me, or Immie?

    I don't understand your post.

    To be honest, on days like today, I would rather not think about how I treat others.
