and maybe someone other than me could say something in here once in awhile...so i dont look alone on the issues perhaps?
anyhow, Dawn, i agree we all have to go see farranheit 9/11 - not 911 - yes the director was on the daily show (ron stewart you know the whole shebang) anyway it definately is down our alley.
also, last night i had a though about some things...such as laws that take away our rights etc. and i figured, maybe this will get some people to start saying something in here? maybe not? well here goes...
it's driving me nuts that everywhere we turn there's a new law that's keeping us from doing something we want to do, we're known for our independence so what's happening to it? it's slowly slipping away into nothingness with every act they make to ban this and ban that. i think i started thinking about this because i saw the jay-z video with that little new announcement about him being gunned down in the end, and guns aren't allowed on TV, why not? everyone is so closed minded, and they don't want their kids seeing this and that, and it's making their kids naive and ignorant to the world around them anyway, which in my opinion is worse. and cigarette taxes are 75 cents too, i mean, i understand that they're horrible for us, but we are educated about it five million times and raising the prices isn't ending the addiction, it's driving the people into poverty, people in poverty waste their money on cigarettes for christ sakes! and everytime i see these stupid reports about iraq i get so irate, we're trying to help them? why don't we go aid all the third world countries with all the disease and starvation before we go take over rich countries for their oil. geez louise.
