Common Sense is Too Easy

I really wanted to log in and bitch about Bush. After passing a tv on the way into my building this morning, I decided I'd rant about the lack of aid we've given to the Iraqi people. Then I figured I could start in on the Pope as well. I figured, I could probably alienate the majority of the handful of people who drop by to read what I have to say on a regular basis. But then, I didn't want it to seem like all I do is complain.

I'm not sure what I'm actually trying to say here. I think I'm just frustrated. I look at the world and I see so many things that don't make sense, such a feeling of disparity between the haves and the have-nots, the left and the right, the Christian and the Muslim...the list goes on and on. I keep thinking, "gee, just worry about the stuff you can fix" but that seems a little close-minded to me.

Since I've been doing this whole blogging thing, its probably become reasonably clear how I feel about certain issues. Never would I chose to impose my feelings on others, nor do I expect everyone to agree. I'd be frightened if they did. But this is my outlet to rant. And right now, I'm frustrated. It sounds idealistic, but this can be a better place if the good people would just stop getting fucked over.

Chris- when I start reading someone's blog regularly I always like to go back and read their very first entry...not sure if this was your first, as it appears you'd already been blogging (but it was the earliest one I could find). I just wanted to say that this EXACT post could be something that came out of my mouth at this very moment. I totally get it. hmmm...since it was posted nearly 5 yrs ago, wonder if you'll even see my comment?!
