    Why am I suddenly winning free prizes through text? Wal-mart gift cards, iPads, and sometimes these prizes arrive at two in the morning.

    But that's okay. Sleep is for the weak-willed. NEVER SURRENDER.
    Sprinkles *fairy dust* on Panda.... or was that my *angel dust*... dammit, I'm always getting those two confused.

    Sprinkle away! I need encouragement to vacuum. Yesterday I beat the kitchen back under control, but now the floor is crying out for attention.

    * ignores floor to get through 1,000 words for the day *

    WHERE IS MY COMPASSION???
    Finally, a legitmate gripe for the thread.

    Sorry, my compassion has all been used up for today. Try again tomorrow?

    Today my compassion is going to poor Peehead the Lamb, whose mother has peed on her so much now that not only is her head yellow, so is her wool halfway down her back. Only her back end is still white.

    I want to give this lamb a BATH so badly. If she gets any dirtier, I'm going to have to rename her Ke$ha.

    Sure, it's only going to take like six months for me to pay it off. I can gripe every day between now and then.

    I can complain about how my bills are so high and how I hate people who want universal healthcare which would only serve to make things even more expensive.

    But actually understanding that and trying to articulate it makes you uncompassionate in the eyes of others.

    Grok: I'm against slavery.
    Statist: Why you uncompassionate person, you should just shut up. Take your speech somewhere else. Being against slavery is just hijacking this thread. Is that all you talk about is being against slavery? Why don't you get off your soapbox?

It is about something that sucks hard (though obviously nothing like how hard it is for Sudenveri). Something you disagree with might ease her pain or make her better, guess what man, shut up. Disagree in your head. No amount of talking about it, no matter the number of points you bring up, no matter how right you might be (I am not going to agree or disagree with you at this point) it does not change the fact that someone is hurting. Do not make it worse man. Save it for another thread and another day.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Healthcare is not a right. In order for it to be a right, someone must become a slave in order to provide your healthcare.

    Being in favor of slavery is not showing compassion, being against slavery is showing compassion.

    Yes, hospitals, and insurance companies and drug companies are all trying to make a profit, but they are doing so through the use of force and violence. The hospitals work with the government for medicare/caid services which the government pays for through violence. The insurance companies work with government to get tax breaks for their products if you are employed, and work with government to create laws to reduce competition like buying insurance across state. The drug companies work with the FDA and have patents enforced by the government to prevent competition.

    Basically everything wrong with the industry is a result of government, not a result of the free market.

    If you follow the money you end up at The Federal Reserve every time. You don't end up at some corporation. Oh and by the way, a corporation is an entity which is created by the state and would not exist in a free market.
    Wow now I've got guns and I am a statist! Looks like I am officially a Fascist!
