Apparently I got what I had been so strenuously, yet blindly, seeking. I clearly sought that which I found. Nov 8th saw the end of my pissing match, though I died in the process. Painkillers combined with sedatives do the trick every time. This suicide has oddly woken me up. I guess the third time really was the charm for me.
I now live with the repercussions (family not speaking to me, court ordered treatment, order of protection, relocation to a decidedly cold climate , homelessness in said cold climate). i live now with the emotional blows which come from shelters turning me away as well as the emotional highlights of Churches where members and leaders don’t walk around with the plastic smiles of folks going through the motions.

Today, at the city mission, the Minister talked about mercy and justice. He drew a metaphor of the concepts as coins being brought together. the minister discussed how mercy and justice yearn to meet though it is clear each are very different moral concepts. They come from very different basic premises. each stirs strong – and very different – emotions when considered.
In the haunting lyrics of his song Get Me Right Dashboard Confessional’s Chris Carrabba sings of sin and how
it remains inside of me
It battles and devours me
It cuddles up the side of me
And whispers it convinces me I’m right.
Carrabba tells the object of his love
I own a sinners heart
I know the rain falls hard
I know the currency
I know the things you’ll need
So which is a more virtuous or more proper currency when dealing with others, mercy or justice, because I’ve been finding it hard to differentiate between the two these days. I’m certainly finding it difficult to say which I would want used in exchange for my sins.

FEMA just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth.
Federal Government graduates first class of Homeland Youth. The new Hitler Youth Corps for the Barrack Obama USA... What the hell is a bunch of first responder kids going to do?
The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany.
We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.
Vice President Joe Biden laughed a lot during tonight's vice presidential debate. For an event that started out with a question about the terrorist attack which claimed the lives of four Americans, what exactly did he think was so darn funny?
Twitter has some theories:
Perhaps moderator Martha Raddatz was giving Biden the giggles.
A fantastic PSA (remember how corny they used to be) from KidRockVideos starring Sean Pean & Kid Rock as politically opposite archetypes coming together in the post-9/11 era and finding common ground.
True and honest patriots. And just when you thought that we’d never see real bipartisanship.
This is the kind of political bromance any freedom loving American could get behind.
Think it won’t/can’t happen here?
Video of riots in Spain and the Spanish Government’s response.
Boy, do you have “full faith” in and offer a lot of credit to “the U.S. Government”.
From the gov’t: thanks! Good little sheeple!
“when we’ll see men dying of starvation around us, your heart won’t be of any earthly use to save them. And I’m heartless enough to say that when you’ll scream, “But I didn’t know it!” – you will not be forgiven.”

Have decided to stop pretending and keeping mouth shut to avoid confrontation. Have decided that the Liberal ‘Obama criticism = racism” argument isn’t about honest Liberal folks opposing allegedly racist Conservative opponents nor is it a cynical game devised to boost the concerned, worried, and traditionally low black vote, as bewildered and/or angry Conservatives maintain.
It is a racism thang, folks, it is worrisome, and it is cynical – and it will succeed if folks don’t wake up and hear the dog whistle.
It’s not about distraction, folks. The dog whistle is tuned to one fever pitched group – the stupid.
Stupid people vote and they convince others who to vote for when they themselves are convinced they must. Read More…
Who said Presidential debates had to be boring?
Party animal Taylor Bigler, entertainment editor for the Daily Caller, offers to adventurous debate watchers a fantabulously political potent potable game. This drinking game is just the thing for folks who can’t sit through the Obama/Romney death-match sober.
Bottoms up – ballots out – and….on to November!
