parent: U.S.A : Wars-R-Us

Re: U.S.A : Wars-R-Us by JohnnyG on 2003-01-09 23:02:46

Listen, I'm just sorry people suffer. I don't have reasonable solutions to suffering. I cannot stand the fact people suffer. I wish I could prevent people from suffering. I don't want my wonderful Corgis suffering or any animal in the kingdom suffering. I have witnessed the suffering and death of both man and animal and it terrifies and distresses me. Hospital visits, nursing home visits, animal shelter visits are not fun for me. My low tolerance for the observation of suffering makes me feel intolerably overpowered by death. Yet, against the grain of all this misery, I will make the most of my vacation to Costa Rica. I will not contemplate negativity on this trip. I have 3 weeks to escape and believe me I plan to escape without apology. I feel the worlds suffering, including those with lupus, can be dumped on me right now and all I'll give in return are smiles and laughter delivered straight to the heart of those in pain. Of course when I rerturn to the states with malaria,well, misery loves company.

  I wound up not expressing myself clearly, to wit: My final thought was that dealing with lupus is small potatoes (every pun intended!) compared to the impending "Wars-R-Us" political machine currently being generated by god-knows-WHO for god-knows-WHAT-reason!!! (and that is something with which up, I will not put!)

  Wearing black, and I mean every article of clothing xcept my boxer briefs(I find boxer briefs breathe easier than tightie whities and conform to the contours of my butt & torso providing a bit of support and little slippage when I'm doing "The Twist" unlike typical boxers which slip and turn and even strangulate blood flow during my unusual style of locomotion) were black on the night of my declaration against suffering. Obviously wearing black, in my case anyway, impacts my emotional state and I'm sure friends & neighbors would say it reflects it as well. However, even though I'm wearing a red shirt and blue pants at this very moment, I still find what was written satisfying to my humaneness and though it seems a bit redundant and somehow grandiose, I would not change a single word unless threatened with torture. Since wars cause suffering I must submit that I am against war. There are exceptions of course. There are always exceptions. I would like to amend my statement and include the line "I am against any action that a government may take to proactively and unprovokedly kill humans as this will add high levels of misery to those suffering the loss of the human beings killed. If these human beings are not killed but wounded, well, that increases their suffering and those who care for them especially if they have lost mobility due to missing limbs, spinal injury or just general nervous system signals of outstanding pain"
