I know what's going on in the world...I have a passport with stamps in it, I have an attic full of old National Geographic mags in it, I watch educational television, I have books on Christianity/Islam/Judiasm...I have read the Dhamapada, I have read about/attended talks about AAs and their plight, I am aware of how the women live in parts of Africa and Asia, I went to college...I have inherited a whole homemade video library containing more countries than you can think of, and I keep an Islamic prayer rug, Saudi sword, and other stuff like that in my house for decoration. Think your neighborhood's ghetto? Check out East St. Louis, or take a plane trip over to Kosovo...I'll bet you've never seen such a bombed-out ****hole in all of your life. If you don't believe me, I'll send you some personal photographs. I grew up in a town with 5,000 people, and my next-door neighbor is probably in the KKK, but I've also lived in the most affluent neighborhood around for a time...I may be a goober, but I know how different people live.

True, I may not know everything, but I don't want advice from someone like you...someone I really don't respect.

You ask me to explain something I said, or make some rude, unnecessary comment about it, and when I try to explain, you claim that I am forcing my opinion on you. You are just trying to get me to talk more, and overanalyze everything I say to make me look stupid...and I fall for it every time. Good for you.

Stop saying it is nice to see me. I know you don't mean it, and I don't say it back to you for a reason. You are lucky I even talk to you after the way you treat me, and if we weren't related, I wouldn't give a **** if you were alive or dead. Big plan to only work one year after you graduate college...only to get pregnant and take care of your babies the rest of your life. You're almost a senior, and you don't have a boyfriend, so honey, I don't see it happening. I don't think someone as screwed up as you needs to have kids anyway.

Yes, guys can be creepy, but I'd so much rather spend my time with them than with girls...I guess that makes me weird.

Yes, we are very good friends...Stop asking him what he sees in me. He can be friends with whoever he wants.

You keep saying that I don't care about other people. How come I know everyone's birthday, and how come I keep buying cards and presents for the birthdays and weddings...I don't see you doing it. How come I know what kind of car everyone drives, and what they are currently doing in their lives, and you don't? Maybe that's because I actually *do* care. To bad nobody has taken the time to ask about my life...not that I care.

Most importantly, I don't really like Kerry, so I don't know who I'll vote may be Bush. He's not the anti-Christ, but he had better fix that Iraqi situation...and fast. I don't want all these widows and fatherless children thinking that their husbands/fathers died in vain.

Even though I have some liberal views, I'm not comfortable with any Joe liberal running things. I may not be Republican anymore, but I don't want people making decisons based on anything but facts and common sense...not scripture. I don't drink, smoke, use drugs, whore around, or watch programs/movies with a lot of sex and nudity, but that's not because I think those things will send me straight to hell...

Ah...the burden is getting lighter.
-I am a person.Not an object. I have a brain. Don't treat me like some random street-corner bimbo.
-I don't smoke. Don't ask me if I want to. If I wanted to coat my lungs in Tar i would suck on a Bus Muffler.
- I know I'm short. I know I have curly hair. I like it that way.
-Middle-aged men who ride public transit. Stop oggling the teenage girls. One of them will kick tour ass , and her name is Meekah.
Maybe the definition of home is the place where you are never forgiven, so you may always belong there, bound by guilt. And maybe the cost of belonging is worth it.

Had to come back and add I am so sick of people who obsess on fashions just to get attention. I don't mean a normal concern or interest in appearance, but trend freaks or people who dress "weird" JUST because they know people willl gawk. Please talk to a friend or see a shrink or whatever and get some self-esteem. People should pay attention to you because of who you are as a person, not because you wear whatever. Don't get me wrong, I can understand the appeals of fashions, to a point, but please, use your God-given brain and decide for yourself if something looks good or not or makes sense or not instead of being so obsessed about getting a reaction from people, especially strangers walking down the street, who cares? To hell with this "oh I'm so hip" or "oh I'm so different" thing. And it's not just fashion. I know women who actually started smoking cigars because it was trendy Do you have any idea how ridiculous you look smoking a CIGAR?? For Goddsake!
stop starving yourself! stop telling me how you want to lose weight when you're 3 inches taller than me and 40 pounds lighter. it makes me want to killllllll you! i dont want to hear about your self deprivation. thanks!

stop pointing out little things with joy and amusement - like lint on my clothes and a stray piece of hair. i really hate that.

you dont need to bribe me with presents. i dont need your money or anything from you. i can take care of myself. i will call you when i want to, not when you want me to.

get it together and be happy for me!
Don't talk make fun of people who are fat when you're with me. Am I supposed to laugh? Are we playing a game and pretending I'm not? That's so ignorant and it makes me really uncomfortable.
DO NOT BEEP AT ME and wave your hands just because I'm not making a right on red right away. Are you in THAT much of a rush? It's really not my problem if you left your house too late this morning. I am not risking my life because you're a moron.

I love you and you're a good friend, but please stop trying to make me feel guilty that my family doesn't have money problems and yours does. I'm not spoiled, my mom doesn't hand over money to me when I ask her, I work just as you do. Yes, my mom does pay for my college education...most moms and dads do! You have a good family and they really love you...I think that's more important than anything.

I'm sorry you're so obese. I wish there was something I could do for you, but I'm scared to offend you. You talk about your weight problem all the time, and it doesn't really seem like you're doing anything about it. I wish I could help you, but I don't know what you need.

No, you have NO idea what it was like for me to lose my father because your grandfather/uncle/neighbor died. NOT THE SAME THING AT ALL.
Stop with the annoying games. If you want a date, ask. If you're interested, say so. Sure no one likes rejection, but thats one of those risks you have to take if you want to get anywhere in life.

Geez, don't state the obvious, please!!! Most of us aren't stupid, and have the ability to perceive stimuli and interpret it on our OWN.

"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."

4a, mbl, low porosity, normal thickness, fine hair.
Napkins, wine corks, plastic bags. etc. etc.... NONE of them belong in the fruit bowl. The fruit bowl is for the fruit and it is partly decoration. Don't put that other crap in there!!!!

Why are you such a negative person? Everything you say is negative. How can you live your life that way?? It's so depressing. Get some help.

Don't try to put me down and then turn around and say ha ha I was joking. Many a truth is spoken in jest. I know where you are coming from you miserable hag. Oh, j/k! haaha.
Hey. You. Woman with the bad body image.



...a little straight-haired testosterone on the curlygirly bored.
I really,really, really regret about half of the things I say.

I don't state my real opinion nearly often enough.
YES, I'm thin, and YES I do eat. More than you, probably. NO, I don't work out all the time. I was born this way. Get over it. You do not need to point out the obvious EVERY TIME YOU SEE ME (you couldn't handle it if I returned the favor). And don't monitor my eating when I am in front of you. I'm full damn it! I might have just eaten. Do yourself a favor and stop trying to make correlations and "figure out" how I got to be so thin. Here's an idea--keep your eyes on your own plate. Perhaps you can "figure out" your own food issues, mmmkay?

Don't do me any favors by letting me know that my a$$ isn't big enough for you! So what? Entertain the thought that I wouldn't touch you with a ten foot 'bout that?

Don't eff with my emotions, dude. I love you, but I can let you go. Today.

God only knows why I am friends with you. I have concluded that this deed will be my ticket into heaven, LOL. You've never been as good a friend to me as I am to to you. Yes, you are a very attractive man, but so what? I don't want to be with you. Get over yourself. Stop trying to convince me that I am unattractive. Why on earth would you need to do that? Number 1 it won't work, Number 2 its not true. It is not my fault that you are unhappy and insecure.

I love the both of you more than life itself, but please understand that neither of you are my role models. Its too bad that I had to go out and find people to show me how to live a fulfilling life (and not just exist). I'm sorry that this makes me a weirdo in your eyes. Once again, I love you, but I have many issues with the way you put these limitations in my head. Please understand that when I ask you for advice, it is just that. I don't have to accept or heed it. In fact, your put-downs and snide comments are the reason why I don't ask you for your input anymore. I am OK on my own.

Get to know me before you decide that I'm stuck up. I am not. I am not cosmopolitan, or cold or mean or materialistic or high maitenance or any of that. Who I am will surprise you. Yes, I'm a funny chick. But that is not all I do. Please understand that I will not be your dancing monkey every minute of the day. I am not perfect, so please don't expect that. I am a person with feelings and needs. Sorry.

Don't come into my life and try to knock me off my pedestal. Yes, I have high self esteem, and there is nothing you can do to change that!

Yes, we were very good friends, but I no longer want to deal with you. You calling and pleading made it all worse. For all your sweetness, underneath you can be quite manipulative and needy. I don't care about your kids asking about me. I don't care that we had a bond. You just overstepped some lines, and I barely even knew you. I am not an ATM machine. I loved you as a friend, but when you started just automatically expecting things from me, that was the end of the line. And on top of all this, you had the nerve to criticize me! Nah, shorty. Maybe one day I will be ready to deal with you. Till then.....

When I walk into your establishment/work place, SAY HELLO (or something). If you are a business owner, do not hire ignorant-***ed people to deal with the public. It infuriates me to spend money anywhere where I'm treated like crap by some toothless heffa.

Ah....that felt good.
"Don't play me...I'm over 30, and I don't smoke weed"

- Please step down off of your self-righteous pedestal and get over yourself. You are not competing for Miss America - you do not need to tell me how much your new house costs, how you're just miss busy-body by participating in all these do-good activities and then turn around and bag on your fiance for essentially just being a guy! You have mental problems if you think you need to lose weight - you are skinnier than I am and I'm skinny! Then again, its all about you and how you are doing something that is better than everyone else.

-Stop calling me - I am NOT my supervisor's secretary or answering service - if she doesn't answer her phone, she's obviously away from her desk or on the other line, which means she's NOT AVAILABLE! I gave her your message 2 hours ago to call you - if she hasn't, that's not MY problem!

-Slow the freak down and enjoy life a little would ya?! Yes, I'm driving the speed limit *gasp* Imagine that. So please, remove yourself from my tailpipe and BACK OFF!

-You all are just as bad as high schoolers - you stand around and talk about one another and back stab - that's why I don't talk to any of you all day because I know I'm getting talked about behind my back. I DESPISE fake people.

-Stop being so judgemental. Just because someone chooses to do something that you don't agree with or would not do in that particular manner doesn't mean its wrong. I've tried my best to warm up to you, but have felt alienated and will not forget that for a long time. I am not a bad person, so why do you insist on making me feel like I am?

Whew......that's a start.......
OK this will probably tick off a lot of you but anyway - attention everyone who is ultra politically correct and gets offended at the drop of a hat: please do the rest of us a big big favor and go live in a cave. Of course knowing you you'll get offended by the rocks or something. Seriously if you're just looking for an excuse to cry, how about we throw you off a cliff so you at least have a good reason. Better yet move to Somalia or just about anyplace else for awhile and you'll see what REAL opression is. You are a spoiled idiot; get a grip. If someone calls me "tall" instead of "vertically blessed" or "Indian" instead of "Native American" I could give a flip (unless their intent is clearly hostile or rude). God forbid, I just called someone "black" instead of "African American" and got some childish go to hell look. ?? Oh no what a catastrophe. Guess what honey, I think AA is a ridiculous term anyway, because it's confusing and just too stinking long. And you know what, "AA" isn't any more noble or high and mighty than "black," which when I grew up 100 years ago in fact WAS the PC term. In fact, as "NAs" crying about the football team Redskins name, get over yourselves too. I understand your point and don't care for it either, but I think very few if any people think negatively of us when they think of that football team. We have much more serious issues that you should devote your time to if you REALLY care about "your" people.
Oh yeah, I forgot about these:

Don't treat your boyfriend like crap; be glad that you have such a sweet guy after what you did to him! It makes me sick that he kisses your damn a$$ all the time. Stop griping about wanting to go home every time he starts having fun somewhere. If he wanted to go home and you were having fun, yuo would throw a fit.

How DARE you cheat on me. I gave you "friend time" (which included your friends that were girls), never called to check to see if that is actually where you were because I thought it was healthy for us to have our seperate time sometimes. I trusted you and you broke my heart. Screw you! You are not even that cute, and you have a bad attitude and are self centered. You are selfish and heartless. Youre a mamas boy that is spoiled rotten and has never had to grow up.

If you do something wrong, don't weasel your way out of it, own up to your mistake. Be a MAN.
A closed mind is a wonderful thing to lose.

friends: quit making me feel guilty when i don't blow off obligations to work, school, family to come get drunk with you!!! don't make me feel bad that i don't spend my money on dinners and clothes and drinks like you do. i work hard, i want to succeed, and i'm willing to make sacrifices to do so. don't make me feel bad about it!!! and if you *borrow* a book or movie, i'm NOT GIVING IT TO YOU!

aunt: why are you so philanthropic to "the disadvantaged," yet you are cruel and dismissive towards my father? he is the sweetest man alive, and you have emasculated him and embarrassed him in front of me enough times. i want to toss you into the deep blue pacific ocean, you terrible shrew!! (no, not a death threat, i just hate the old bag) TIP--don't buy people gifts from garage sales...they'll KNOW!
don't blatantly admit you favor one grandchild over another. they may only be 1 and 3, but your attitude will carry over and they'll eventually realize.

people in general: take some f-ing responsibility for your actions and stop expecting me to give you a free ride in life! learn to advance yourself and your group-of-choice by performing well in the workplace, not *demanding* extra benefits!

activists: until you provide a viable alternative solution, i'm not interested. and a "vomit-in" will not make me suddenly take your cause seriously.

global community: wake up! look at history! appeasement never worked! israel is protecting itself! it cannot be called an apartheid state when all religions are permitted to practice freely inside the borders!
palestinians are brainwashed from the time they are born to see israel as an enemy to defeat, not a nation with which to peacefully co-exist! they are being used as political pawns by everyone from the dictatorial surrounding 22 arab countries to the radical leftists. the hate palestinians are being taught is all over the textbooks...and the money flowing to that country goes to arafat's bank accounts and explosive belts, rather than education reform. on the contrary, money to israel has allowed them to do things like invent the cellphone and allow churches, mosques AND synagogues. the fact that I'm jewish has nothing to do with this. the fact that I believe in the preservation of democracy has everything to do with this. so when you want to cry and moan over poor rachel corrie, please remember how she and other ISM idiots go to the middle east to teach hatred towards america and israel, rather than using the fruits of the liberties they've enjoyed here to teach the palestinians to help free themselves from the grip of terrorists like arafat!!!!

die hard liberals i understand your feelings, but you're living in a dream world. it was a rude awakening for me, but people are not good at heart. they are simply animals capable of extreme good and extreme evil. also of extreme jealousy...the desire to outdo others will always exist, regardless of the type of society in which man lives. enacting policies based on how you'd like people to be, rather than how they really are...bad idea!

die hard conservatives i understand your feelings, too, but the more you try to impose religion on others, the more they will resist. america is rooted too deeply in the ideals of personal freedom to ever abolish abortion... if you are opposed to abortion, raise money to educate teens and create private programs to present alternatives to women who accidentally become pregnant.

bush is not hitler. anyone who actually believes this should rot in the deepest cavernous depths of michael moore's A*N*U*S!!

/rant over

thanks for letting me vent!
I take great delight watching your downfall.

Obamacare is not a blueprint for socialism. You're thinking of the New Testament. ~~ John Fugelsang

I thought of something else. I love babies, don't get me wrong, but don't get insulted if I can't tell the sex of your newborn. You just can't tell with some newborns, and if you dress them in gender neutral clothing, please offer the information so I don't have to ask.

Oh, and seriously I love dogs. I know they are great companions, but so are cats. Stop hating on my cats. They provide me the same emotional fulfillment that a dog can, and I don't have to walk them in the rain. They are quiet, don't chew up my furniture, and don't bark everytime they hear a noise. Yeah they have a litter box, but babies wear diapers. You learn to deal. And I can clean the litter box when I feel like it. You don't get to pick when to walk a dog if he has to go or when to change a diaper.
I am perfect.

Barack Obama for President in 2008!
it's taken me a while to get through this thread...entertaining and insightful my turn...

Mom: Yes I'm happy that your boyfriend of nearly 5 years has finally moved in with you and things are finally turning around for you but why does he ALWAYS have to go EVERYWHERE with you? Are you no longer an individual because you have a man again? And would you CALL your best friend and go out to lunch with her please! She thinks you don't even care about her anymore and it can't be just you and her like it always has been because he's finally here. If you tell me to pick you up at a certain BE READY TO GO and don't make me wait around for a half an hour...I could have slept in some more. Don't ask me to drive and criticize everything I do. Yes, I've had some mishaps (large and small) but I'm in control and I know what I'm doing. Stop using the imaginary break, you're not gonna die.

Dad: Stop being such a stubborn arse. It's been nearly 5 years and I'm tired of my brothers and I being put in the middle. Grow up. Why don't you try actually spending time with your sons instead of just yelling and punishing when they do something wrong. Why the heck can't joe just stay there when he goes to the SAME school that alex does? There is NO sense whatsoever of bring joe all the way back to mom's house just to drive all the way back to your house when joe has to be right back out there the next morning. Stop doing things like that just to annoy mom, it's old, childish and unreasonable. Adam is only almost 14...stop acting like he's going to know everything, he's not an adult yet. He's still a kid, he's allowed to act like one. And fricking call management about the problems in your townhouse apartment, you pay way too much a month in rent to them to deal with that crap.

Alex: Quit with the attitude. I've been dealing with your oversensitive behind for too long and I'm really getting sick of your outbursts. And STOP changing your mind every 5 seconds when we're picking a movie or a place to eat. Yes, you do owe me nearly $100 for concert tickets.

Joe: What the heck is your deal? BRUSH YOUR DANG TEETH! If we ask you a question don't answer us in a 'isn't it obvious where i was aren't you stupid' tone of voice. Stop writing all over your jeans and then wear the same pair 5 days in a row.

If every livejournal entry is going to be about how depressed you are that your boyfriend won't be able to contact you for a month because he's in the military, then please don't post. I'm tired of hearing about him and every detail that goes on with him. We don't care. Get a job or a hobby or something.

No, I don't believe in God anymore and I don't believe that you can just 'leave it up to God'. Don't put me in Catholic school my entire life and expect me to still believe mom. You're not exactly a model Catholic yourself now are you?

If I take the time to answer with the proper greeting ("IT Helpdesk, how can I help you?") the least you can do is say "sorry, wrong number". DON'T JUST HANG UP. I'm doing the best I can to help you, don't hang up on me because I don't know all the answers. And no I don't know when the computer center will be with you, there are other people on campus with problems too. If you call at the last minute for audio visual equipment don't get pissed off when it's not available, you should have called sooner. If there is a sign on the door that says the computer lab is closed for spring break until March 8 DON'T COME IN. Yes, the door may be ajar but that's so WE can get in and out without always have a key. I don't care if you have to print something really quick. Learn to read.

Don't bring your kids to class and eat your dinner too. Don't bring your kids to the computer labs either, they're not going to sit still.

Stop asking computer questions you should be asking your professor! Why don't you pay attention when I'm explaining to you how to use your FTP and stop asking me the same questions over and over again.

To the McDonald's across the street and down one block: Stop over charging people who aren't black.

To the bum who sits at the light before the expressway: Don't call me a "Lousy f***ing b***h" because I wouldn't give you any money.

I'm MEXICAN not Spanish. If you can't pronounce my name after me telling you how to pronounce it, just don't do it. No, I can't speak Spanish unfortunately so no I don't know what they're saying.

yep that does feel better.

Don't go on a bulletin board and expect people to answer your school exam questions for you. You should have paid attention in class, you figging moron. Now why don't you get your lazy ass to the figging library instead of expecting other people to do your work for you.
