05/03/2002 Entry: "Right on"
JD from Sublime Directory (no link cuz I'm trying to ease off the porn ) wrote this today and since it's right in line with things I've written here before and totally the way I feel, I thought I'd post it here as well so more people could soak it in. Enjoy.
"i saw something that really bothered me in the paper yesterday. as many people now know there was a teenage couple that were walking on the beach here in miami when 5 piece of shit kids kidnapped them, stabbed the boyfriend to near death, through him out of the car, raped the guys girlfriend and then killed the girl by shooting her between the eyes. i haven't been this disgusted since those mental midgets in jasper dragged the black guy behind their truck until he died. obviously this kind of stuff turns everyone’s stomach inside out but what really bothered me is a quote from the guy that stopped to pick up the dying boyfriend on the side of the road. he was obviously religious and said something like "this is not an act of god, it is an act of satan." satan? bullshit! i mean common! i'm so tired of religious people thanking god for things they view as positive (i.e. when hollyfield thanks god for giving him the power to nearly beat his opponent to death) and blaming satan for something they view as negative. guns don't kill people, drugs don't kill people, cigarettes don't kill people and SATAN doesn't kill people...PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE. to put the blame on inanimate objects and imaginary people (hey if you want to believe in satan it’s your problem) is such an insult to the human spirit. all people have the ability to achieve the greatest and be the greatest with some "soul nourishing" and a GOOD EDUCATION. what is the common denominator of almost all these heinous crimes? people so ignorant they can barely put a sentence together and so ignored by family (if they even have any) that there isn't an ounce of human spirit left of them. so what is the solution? stop pouring this country's almost infinite resources/money into to stupid things like the drug war (btw, how do people not find the irony in a hard nosed drug war and a republican president that did cocaine in college). instead spend it on education and our country's foster care and adoption system. fix the problem at it's root! everyone deserves a good education and everyone deserves to have someone that loves them. it may take a generation or two since there are already uneducated/ignorant parents raising hateful ignorant kids but if we can pull it off it would take this country to a whole new level of consciousness. one of my favorites, deepak chorpa, said it best when he said "There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in."
