"You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven."
the people who say “it gets better” - dont have to put up with auditory hallucinations every fucking day of their lives.
Sometimes flowers grow up through cracks in concrete, without anybody there to water them.

what good did the world cup do? billions of dollars spent on
advertising, traveling, teams… imagine if that money went to
feed the homeless. to fix the gang problem in Chicago. to rebuild
one of the nations backs that we broke during war. how about
putting that money towards finding those 200+ young women that
were taken from school for forced marriage and slave labour? i
bet we could have found them - yet the people of earth complain
when these things arn’t done while enjoying the hoopla of the
worldcup, in idiocy.
do you watch youtube videos? well often there are ads that show
right before the videos. ever notice how all the ads before rap
videos are beer ads? yet we say nothing, we’ll bitch when a
white person says the n-word, but we say nothing when they
use black people to sell alcohol - a subtance repsonsible for
more deaths yearly, than marijauna; and illegal substance
our government won’t let us use because it makes more money when
of course you don’t pay attention to the ads on facebook.
facebook having ads to make money when it pretends to be a
friendly site is the same thing as shady campaigners contributing money to the presidential run. but you just accept it, you don’t
even realize you’re getting fucked in the ass. even when i spell
it out. wouldn’t you bitch if everytime you picked up the phone
to call a friend, you had to listen to a 30 second ad before
getting a dial tone? but no, on the internet, you just accept.
the same fucking people who bitch about “if God existed, there
wouldn’t be war” just accept the greed in the world and don’t
stand up against it. Greed is a sin, God SHOULD be smiting us
with illeness and plague and death and loss of hope. hope is
something you aquire - but through your actions you aquire the
position to be in pain, then wonder why it hurts. and when it
hurts, you don’t even consider that it might be you making the
wounds bigger, you just point the finger at everyone else.
….. can’t finish this right now. i’ll write more later. it’s hard to write when my words fall on deaf ears.
“It’s a good thing when nobody who works full-time is living in poverty. That’s not un-American. That’s not radical. It’s right. It’s what built this country.” —President Obama in Denver on expanding opportunity
i haven’t watched this in full yet, but i totally intend to when i can relax more. i know that might sound wierd, but i really dig Obama. i think he’s an even better president than Clinton was, and thats saying a LOT. (this is kind of for my own notes so i remember to watch this when i come back to tumblr)

Words can hurt. Think twice before you send a message by text. Once it’s out there, you can’t take it back. Learn more about cyberbullying.
i know bullying for me isn’t really an issue anymore cause i’m 34, but when i was in school i bullied people, and i got bullied a lot too. it sucked.
