Today has been kind of a bad day for me. It all started last night when I watched something that put me in a bad mood. Then the more I thought about it, the more disturbed I became.

As some of you know, I was supposed to be inside the world trade center on 911, but sleeping in possibly saved my life. Because of that, I have been more interested than your average joe on what is happening during this war.

What bothered me was watching the presidential debate last night. All but two people said they were ok with the military participating in torture (like weatherboarding) to try to get information out of terrorists.

Isnt using pain and fear to get someone to do what you want terrorism? What makes us different from them?

This depresses me a lot. For every "suspected terrorist" we kill, 2 innocent people are also killed. I say suspected because with many, we just don't know. How is that winning? If everytime you scored a touchdown in football the other team scored 2, you would have no chance of winning.

We have bombed 6 countries in the last 3 years. Can many of us even name those countries? Do we even care? What the fuck is wrong with us? Our government is killing and torturing people and we don't even ask who or why. How does that make me safe?

    what makes us better than terrorists? We've got the good guys on our side. Don't take that last sentence literally, think about. What justifies a countries actions is one little phrase: "what the hell will anybody do to stop them?". They've got the military, nobody is willing quite yet to start a war about it. Yes, it is terrorism, but they're going to do what is typical in the English language; they'll coin a term that won't mean a damn thing different but won't legally be punishable. The world is fucked up yo, but it hasn't gotten to the unnoticeable folk yet; we still have some time before shit gets too crazy for us. Let's be thankful, smoke that weed if it makes ya feel any better. But definately pop in some tunes, even if it's not Korn, just whatever you've got that'll blind you to the world's impurities. That's why there's religion, drugs, romance and sex, and music. It's all just Tylenol that makes the badstuff go away for a while.
