(no subject)

I scream so much, you know what I mean, this electric stream,
and my tears in league with the wires and energy and my machine,
this is my beautiful dream
I'm hurting no one, hurting no one...
I want to give you everything,
I want to give you energy,
I want to give a good thing,
I want to give you everything, everything...
In one final scream of love who could climb this high she looks beautiful like a child
I feel tears and I want to scream, you know what I mean,
'cause this is hurting no one...

Artistic Temper

I fuckin' HATE when I can't get something to work. HATE, hate, hatehatehate, fuckin' hate it. Having an eight-year-old who's babbling a mile a minute, asking questions and not listening to any answer you give doesn't help matters any. Not understanding what it is you are doing wrong makes it even worse.

Fuck this, now I'm just pissed. Scrap it all, try again tomorrow or something. FUCK.

Hell In A Handbasket

More proof that humans should be exterminated:

So, you have this chick. She's manic-depressive and schizophrenic. She's got a prescription for meds at a local Wal-Mart. OK, no problems there. I guess, at some point, she assaulted police officers and was arrested for attacking a fellow customer there. Well, she's messed up, no real surprise. Later on, at a Wal-Mart seven miles away, she bought a shotgun, and killed herself. Well, that sucks.

The story gets better. Her mother, Lavern Bracy, is suing Wal-Mart for $25 million, saying clerks should have known about her daughter's illness or done more to find out. Apparently, she figures they should have known and looked up her medical records. Now, Wal-Mart didn't do this, because Texas law makes medical records confidential. Due to this, this chick's name didn't show up on her background check for the gun purchase. Maybe the law should be changed, maybe not. That's not what I'm here to talk about.

My problem here is this mother's cashing in on her child's suicide. Where does the fault really lie? On the gun? On the gun seller? Or on the person who pulled the trigger? If she's this bad and not responsible for her actions, then why was she allowed to go wandering around on her own? And what exactly does suing Wal-Mart for 25 million dollars accomplish? They were not negligent in their background check; they had no way of knowing that this person was mentally ill, as they had no access to medical records.

Lobby for a change of law, sure, but that's not the American Way. The American Way is to greedily sue whatever corporate giant has the money to pay your exorbitant charge, for whatever bullshit reason you can trump up, and cash in on misery. Fuckin' bitch. I hope she loses the case and gets fined for a frivolous lawsuit...but I doubt it'll happen.
