05:53 pm - My first long entry in some time
The human mind is so foolish. There is no hope. Today's cynicists are tomorrow's optimists.
I watched a movie today on the abuse and murder of the millions of people in Iraq that were caught up in the whirlwind of Saddam Hussein's genocide. I was on the brink of crying as I watched the suffering of so many innocents and the psychological, emotional, and physical damage that is still affecting the Iraqis today. How horrible it is that we live in a country plagued by so many liberals. Liberals that would feel ok with watching millions die and letting a wicked and gutless group of people, the United Nations, decide what is right and what is wrong. We should have fought the war in Iraq. We should not have sent in a small team to assasinate Saddam, we should have invaded them. Luckily we have a president with balls and we did this. Liberals are bigger dumbasses than their closed minds could imagine, or would even let them imagine. Please forgive me for being biased toward the truth. I have this frightening tendency to believe the truth. Sadly, you liberals out there haven't the first clue what the truth is, because your head is engulfed up the media's asshole, sucking up all the shit it puts out. In my opinion, the most miniscule reason for going to war was the possibility that there may have been weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. In all truth there may have been, considering we are just finding fighter jets that were buried in the sand in Iraq 12 years ago. I believe that America should not "police" the world by going to every little village where tyranny exists, and furthermore spread democracy to everwhere it doesn't exist. However, when genocide is occuring, the torturing and slaughtering of nearly one and a half MILLION innocent people, something must be done. Even if its not by us, clearly something has to be done. Unfortunately, for years, this problem with, not just one wicked leader, but a complete regime, continued to exist, when it should have been eliminated years ago. The United States waited too long to stop this evil, but we finally did so under the leadership of the "ballsy" and intelligent President George W. Bush. Somebody had too do it and we stepped up to the plate, and somehow millions of foolish Americans stand agains this war. Imagine to yourself that you were born in Iraq and somehow managed to escape and now lived in America. Keep in mind, this is YOU. Now you realize that your own parents(not to mention Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, Cousins, Friends) who are still in Iraq are in trouble. Most of your loved ones are led to camps where evil people are PLEASURED in TORTURING AND MURDERING them. If this happened to you, would you not plead the United States to free Iraq? If this truly happened to you, would you not be for the war in Iraq or would you simply say, "NOT MY PROBLEM"?
How could any human being with a conscience feel ok with this happening and be against this war? Are you against World War 2? Was it a bad idea to stop Hitler from torturing and murdering the jews? Your grandchildren and great grandchildren will not look back at this war of today and say, "that was a foolish war". When they read the history books, they will be saying, "it seems to make sense that we would want to get rid of a man who killed millions".
I don't understand liberal's logic, because it is not solid or correct.
Evidence apparently means nothing.
The logic of the liberal of today is that of an ignorant buffoon.

"Sin is a queer thing. It isn't the
breaking of divine commandments. It
is the breaking of one's own integrity."
I found this to be thought-provoking and I halfly agree.

The repitition of any plural noun on a stand-alone basis hardly tickles my fancy, and without further deceit, distastefully affixes itself with my fastidious grey cells. Such forgery of downreaching cerebration is the embryonic rationalization of a desperate, impetuous buffoon.
That being said, I MISS EVERYBODY!!!!!

I hate rumors about me, but who wouldn't? I hate being stereotyped, but who can help it? I'll never be left alone, but why would I be?

06:36 pm - my life
i honestly feel like an eggplant, who has managed to slip down into the gas tank of a humongous car. I could once see the outside and the beautiful daylight and bright blue sky, but now the gas cap has sealed. Even still, for a while I was able to see the light through the cracks of the gas cap piercing through the dark depths of the tunnel which led to the tank full of gas. Now I can no longer see that because I have been drowning in the burning gasoline. Alas, my beautiful purple skin is burning and changing colors. But wait!! I once again can see some light!!! Maybe there is yet hope for the hopeless eggplant....

“Mirror” by Sylvia Plath
I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful—
The eye of a little god, four-cornered. Most of the time I
meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink with speckles. I have looked at it so long
I think it is part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness separate us over and over.
Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me, Searching my reaches
for what she really is.
Then she turns to those liars, the candles or the moon.
I see her back, and reflect it faithfully.
She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands.
I am important to her. She comes and goes. Each morning it is her
face that replaces the darkness.
In me she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman
Rises toward her day after day, like a terrible fish.

i just want to yell and i want to be accepted and loved and liked, why do i need that so bad?!?!?! i shouldnt i shouldnt need it i shouldnt want it. sometimes i just feel like the only reason i get up is because i've temporarily tricked myself into ignoring the downs

09:56 pm - DON'T GO, BANANAS
I enjoyed writing this.
It’s a hot, summer day and yard work has been consuming most of your time. The work is hard and you can’t wait until it’s over. After you’re all done, you excitedly drive to the local Dairy Queen and order a banana split. Savoring this delicious treat seems to make all your hard work worthwhile.
This rewarding scenario may soon become a thing of the past because the banana plant may be on the verge of extinction. As incredible and unlikely as this may seem, recent problems afflicting bananas are threatening the banana’s survival. This year, Emile Frison, a Belgian pathologist of the International Network for the Improvement of Banana and Plantain stated that the dominant commercial banana variety, Cavendish, may become extinct within 10 years. This problem is not a new one. Fifty years ago, the Gros Michel banana was eliminated by a Panamanian fungal disease. Now, the most popular banana, the Cavendish, is being threatened by a global epidemic of another fungal disease, Black Sigatoka. With nothing on the horizon to replace the Cavendish, the banana industry is at a crisis point. “In some ways, the banana today resembles the potato
before blight brought famine to Ireland a century and a half ago,” reports a recent article in the New Scientist magazine. An understanding of the banana plant is necessary to arrive at a solution. Edible bananas are asexual and seedless. This means that in order to grow another banana plant, a farmer must take offshoots of one banana plant to form another banana plant. Because of this fact, both plants become susceptible to the same harmful fungus such as the Black Sigatoka. Clearly, something must be done soon to save the bananas.
One solution that has been presented consists of developing technologically
advanced fungicides and pesticides. This solution might eliminate the problem with
current funguses and pests, but it doesn’t seem to address the problem of funguses that might develop in the future. In addition, many scientists are already alarmed by the great use of chemicals in the production of agriculture because of the adverse side effects that they have on humans and on the environment. For these reasons, this solution seems to be a bad solution for the banana problem.
Another idea that has been offered involves cloning bananas and growing them in greenhouses to protect them from dangerous funguses. The problem with this idea is that it would be too expensive. How many people would pay $10-$20 for a bunch of bananas? As a luxury item, some might pay the price, but this does not offer a solution for the millions of people in the world who rely on bananas for everyday food.
Scientists and banana enthusiasts believe that the only hope for bananas is found in biotechnology. Scientists must develop a way to genetically manipulate the current species. Genetic manipulation would involve taking the current species and altering the defense mechanism in the plant so that it would be able to fight off all current fungus problems. Recently, at a banana seminar in France, Emile Frison agreed with this solution when he said that genetic manipulation is “the only hope for the banana.” One of the advantages of this approach is that it would virtually eliminate the need to use expensive and sometimes harmful fungicides. In addition, it might also be possible to produce a more nutritious banana.
Without this solution, we could be nearing the “end of the road” for the banana. Some may think that the demise of the banana is not such a great tragedy. However, many in the world, including millions in Africa, use bananas as a daily food source. In other words, these people survive because the banana is still available. For them, the banana is not a luxury, but a necessity. Saving bananas now, could save lives later and also provide enjoyment to those who have worked outside during a long hot day.
