Politically Incorrect.

I often wonder why people come to me for advice even though I am a fuck up.

I enjoy helping people so I enjoy these talks, yet it has its own hilarity to it. I have a strange bearing in life where I'm allowed to say almost anything to anyone (no matter how vulgar) and I get a free pass. Am I some sort of new-age guru? I sit here in my cheap jeans, stoned out of my mind and contemplating life, and people see me as a wise man. An old hermit who lives in the woods. People walk through the forest and up a mountain to hear me speak, but no one would choose to live the way I do.

This is why I don't understand why people drag personal lives into politics. As long as it does not conflict with their duties, who says a person can't be a good leader just because they have a soft spot for prostitutes? Stop looking at petty shit and look at the real issues you morons. The choices you make now affect the lives of your children.

Just because someone waves God in your face and has decent "christian morals" doesn't mean they are better suited for leadership than a homosexual or someone who follows a different religion. Look at how they'll treat the school system or the rise of unemployment in your country. If you type in "nys" to google its first recommended (most searched) is "nys unemployment". I know at least my country needs some improvement, and I'm willing to look to anyone qualified. No matter what age, gender, race, religion, or sexual preference.

So I will finish this post, before I go on a politcal rampage and spew a bunch of shit that you do not care about. But, I want to leave you this lesson. Just because they don't have the same views doesn't make them bad at what they do. If you take anything I write to heart, and take my advice, then you should know that.

Because I sure as hell have never met anyone with the same views as me.

Down with the sickness.

I recently read a chapter from a book that caught my eye. In this, they explained the theory that human beings may in fact share the same family tree as viruses. They believe that large DNA viruses with organism-like properties may have created the first nucleus by infecting a primitive archaeon. This rendered eukaryotes. Much of the human genome is viral in origin anyways so why not?

I enjoy this theory because it represents most of humanity to me. For as long as we've known that they exist, we despised viruses as evil machine-like destroyers, yet we may be evolved viruses ourselves. This reminds me of how much we disdain our own little evils. We resent that strange impulse to do something wrong. Maybe its just our inner virus telling us to do whats best for yourself.

Also, this fits the old saying "The human race is a virus". We do procreate to no end, overpopulating the Earth and destroying it as we go. Now, as our host is dying, we look for new hosts! We talk of terra-forming Mars and inventing the technology to do it, but do we need to? To act as a virus is the very nature of human life. Do we really need to spread our disease to the universe?
