Sometimes I see or hear something that makes me seriously angry. Things
that it seems to me, should make everyone mad. This is my place to express
my rage. Sometimes I'm ashamed to be one of us.
Got a rage share
it. Got an opinion about one of my rages tell
If you've been here before you can go to straight to out-rage-us
page two. If not read to the bottom and go from there.
Mutant Frogs! Sounds like some kind of cheesy science
fiction movie doesn't it? Problem is it's real. It's been reported in Minnesota
that tainted water is causing frogs to be born with extra, missing or misshapen
limbs, missing or shrunken eyes and other deformities. Its not only Minnesota,
reports come for a dozen other states and Canada as well. The Republicans controlling
congress have already cut funding for the EPA and want to reduce
their powers even more. Do we wait until people start to mutate?
This rage was passed on to me from Annette
She asks "have you been keeping up with Project Cassini, our dearly
beloved government is going to send up 72.3 pounds of Plutonium around
the Earth, then send it as a care package to Saturn! ! ! The rocket is
going to be orbited around the Earth 4 or 5 times to gain speed, then blast
off to Saturn! If anything goes wrong, on take-off, or as it circles the
Earth, it's going to rain enough Plutonium to give cancer to 12 billion
people !!! And, get this; there are NINE more Plutonium missions planned
! ! ! ! This is absurd ! ! ! "
I agree and if you too are concerned you can find out more by going
to the web site of The Farm and clicking
onto the Cassini link.
I was eating at Pizza Hut today. I watched a woman going
through the buffet line picking up pizza, with her hands, looking at it
and then either putting it on her plate or putting it back. I was soooo
to follow her back to her table and start picking up her food off her plate
and then putting it back. Think she might have been a little upset. Some
people should have to wear their stupid sign around their neck.
Does it make you mad when you see a big four wheel drive,
with huge tires, parked in a handicapped space and you see some big obviously
healthy guy come out, climb in (it sits so high you almost need a step
ladder to get in) and drive off totally unconcerned? It does me!
Tonight I've been watching 48 hours. It's about a militia
in Utah. these people are really scary, talking about armed revolution
against the government. The redneck sheriff isn't much better talking about
how he can take them if they do anything. The paranoia is unbelievable.
Waiting for someone in the government to come after them. They were actually
teaching their children to be racist and showing them how to use guns when
they're not much more than babies. What's most scary is that this is not
just some kind of isolated case. They have groups like this in every state.
Some states have several. How do you deal with people like this? I swear
they all have this wild eyed drugged out look and I finally remembered
this look. It's Charles Manson's look and that's very frightening to me.
First let me set the scene. Today is labor day and I didn't
have to work so I decided to do some work on my car that I had been putting
off. I've been running around all day back and forth to the parts store.
I had to stop for gas. Here I am in dirty jeans, torn, greasy t-shirt with
hair that hangs almost to the middle of my back. I pulled into a convience
store, stopped at the pumps, pulled the nozzle, flipped the switch and
within seconds I was pumping my gas. As I was pumping another car pulled
up beside me. This car was nicer and much newer than mine. Driving this
car was a black man I would estimate to be in his mid-twenties. Clean-cut
in casual clothes. Could have been a young doctor or lawyer as far as I
know. What I'm trying to say is this fellow looked far less dangerous than
me. When I went in to pay for my gas he was still standing there waiting
for his pump to be turned on. I walked in the door, pointed out to the
man and told the lady behind the counter "turn that pump on for him". Until
this time I had assumed she either thought she had turned the pump on or
not noticed him but the look on her face told me different. She looked
out at him, then back at me and started to say something. I guess she decided
it was best not to say what she wanted to so she reached over and turned
the pump on and then looked back at me with a "are you satisfied now look".
After paying for my gas i went back out and as I was about to get in my
car a voice called "hey". I turned and he said "thanks". I said "no problem"
and then he said "I know and that's what counts". I realized at that point
that this wasn't an isolated instance for him and he probably encountered
this type of racism all the time. I don't know if this was this woman's
own personal prejudice or store policy and I know if she were confronted
she would swear she wasn't a racist. This is were the us
comes in. I didn't say anything to her. Will I go back to the store and
complain? I don't know. I know I should but sometimes you wonder what's
the point. Would I have made a difference? Probably not, but If I don't
go back and say something to someone I'll never know will I? When even
one person is a racist doesn't that affect all of us?
I'm beginning this page today because yesterday the Princess
of Wales (Diana), and two companions, died in an automobile accident. Today
I've listened to news reports blaming the photographers that were following
her. If early reports that they were chasing her at speeds up to 85 miles
and hour, it would seem they did contribute to her death and they should
be punished. If they caused the accident then they should go to jail and
if it's true that some of them took pictures and left before the police
got there without trying to help, I hope they have a conscience and it eats
them up for the rest of their lives wondering if they could have saved
her. Now let me state the real reason for my writing this. The photographers
are not the only ones to blame. The trash tabloids pay huge amounts of
money for pictures of celebrities. Why do they pay so much? To sell their
papers! This brings it all down to us. If people didn't buy
the papers, that print the pictures, there would be no market for the pictures
and therefore the photographers would not be stalking people whose only
crime is that they are famous. So what do we do? Ban the papers? Censor
them? NO! They have just as much right to exist and any other newspaper.
Just don't buy them!
