Every so often I feel the need to post something here, and I just can’t stop myself from doing this. You really shouldn’t be reading it. There’s nothing interesting in here. There isn’t going to be either. I just don’t want to study right now. Life is just too hard. Whine, bitch, moan. If I ever have something actually interesting to say or do I’ll let you know. Stop reading this now, go back to your life. Seriously, stop. If you’ve made it this far, congratulations, but there won’t be a punchline today. Normally I’d try but it isn’t that kind of post. Life isn’t actually too hard. I was overreacting earlier. Maybe I’ll get some of that fake text to put in here so it looks like I’m saying words. I could even use SwiftKey predictions for the kids and a couple other acquaintances I don’t want to step on someone else’s toes and I think it could work well enough to be done by me and Brandon can take the bus home if the lab goes late in the car that I had an opportunity for the first practice of my part to do it in the right to be done by me and my family. It makes sense but doesn’t too. SwiftKey is scary sometimes how well it knows me. I had to delete some of the predictions cause it got to real. Okay here’s the end. That’s a lot of words.

I’ve had it with this shit.
The moral mission of saving lives behind universal health care (and any health care reform, really) far outweighs the pathetic complaint that “red tape” is going to interfere with your precious time frame.
You know what people who complain about red tape all have in common? They have health care.
Do these people have no idea how privileged they are to be in a position where they can complain about something so petty in the face of the true problem at hand? People are sick. People are dying. And nobody is helping them because that would be bad for their bottom line. Private interests have the power to deny people life-saving care for the purpose of making a higher profit, and I defy you to tell me that the reality of that isn’t seriously fucked up. We want the government to step in to protect the people from abuses of power, even if this power is private — especially if this power is private.
But there are people who refuse to budge on this issue because they’ll have to wait a little bit longer to get a check up.

In 1995 a 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit Kobe, Japan. Almost 6,500 people were killed. Japan studied this disaster very closely and devoted tremendous energy and resources to being better prepared for the next big earthquake they knew would one day come. As a result, Friday’s earthquake (I am NOT…
