Well - I tried pretty hard to make a difference in the world, to help promote a place where people of all different walks of life, religions, sexual
orientations, men, women, people with autism, different political orientations, all of them, could celebrate their differences and feel free to be
themselves in public and embrace some of the most important things about being human - happiness, freedom and real
But it looks lie for all the thinking I did, and the writing I did, and whatever (lol I'm not sure I could make a difference, but I sure as hell tried
hard) we've actually moved backwards as a country since 2008.
There is more division, more hatred, more fear, I swear that racism and sexism and homophobia have increased, and our constitutional rights are
becoming so minimal that people seem to be afraid of being themselves for fear of being arrested. Our economy is still sunk.
About the privacy issue, and the free speech issue, and the freedom of assembly issue, and the 5th amendment issue, and the 4th amendment issue, and
the freedom of press issue where Snowden is being tracked down, Assange is in exile in an Ecuadorian embassy, Michael Hastings was assassinated, and
Citizens United (that Jimmy Carter in a recent interview said was directly involved in our political polarization as of late) allows corporations to
pump unlimited money into political campaigns -
Meanwhile, news outlets like Fox news, talk radio, MSNBC, all of them spew out literal lies to the point where a debate on an issue isn't even
possible because finding out the facts isn't even possible!
The N.S.A. has been spying on allied countries in Europe, for example, listening to around 70 million civilian calls a month in France and spying on
the German Chancellor, yet Obama downplays it, maybe it has been going on all along but the honest truth -
That Federal agencies and law enforcement agencies are using roving wiretaps and roving internet spying techniques against the 4th amendment (which
says a warrant is required on a specific person and place for information to be gathered) against common criminals, and then rewriting their reports
in order to make it look like they got the information legitimately - the fact that there are so many laws that it is nearly impossible not to break
them - that the political parties are so out there that every single one of us is a target of someone -
How the hell did we go so backwards in less than 5 years? It's just ridiculous. I can't do anything about it, I can't even find coherent and accurate
information about what's going on.
I've had a few hard circumstances come my way lately, as a matter of fact, I'm currently officially listed as homeless, which I find damages my
self-esteem a bit and is quite embarrassing - even my incoherent posts lately are embarrassing - but it's due to stress and all, hopefully I'll pull
myself together by the end of the month.
Don't worry by the way, I'm looking after myself and getting things in order, I just have to fight a dumb legal battle involving... a questionable
police department (I just don't know if it is corrupt or not well trained or what, corrupt doesn't seem appropriate as it implies they are trying to
do bad things), move into my new apartment (which I was able to get out of pure luck after the said police raid set off a series of ridiculous
circumstances), get another job, all kinds of stuff like that.
Oh god... my stuff is scattered all over the Pacific Northwest until I get it into one place, too -
