Well now that the cat is out of the bag I can explain the rant earlier.

 You know how there are people you work with who just rub you the wrong way? yeah, I thought so. I have one of those. One who doesn't want to talk to "sad or angry people" on the phone despite her job being a receptionist. Instead of thinking about those poor souls who are looking desperately for answers, instead of trying to believe TPTB that things will be ok, she is only thinking about how it will be hard on her feelings to have to hear someone crying. She isn't the only one either. The days have been filled with "well *I* know what *I* would do if I lost my job and those people should have thought about that too" Guess what asshat- "those people" are retirees who needed extra income because their social security doesn't cover everything, "those people" are college kids who need the money to stay afloat while they go to school and can't do much future planning while they work 20 hours and go to school for another 60, "those people" are moms living on tips whose extra time is spent taking care of their kids. None of these people make 20.00 or more an hour with a spouse who works so they have the luxury of putting something aside for a rainy day. These are the people living in the monsoon.
Get a clue, have a heart, stop bitching and help fix this horribly broken system or shut the hell up.

  Look, I get it, times are tough. They are. I know. Times will get tougher. That is also not a surprise. What I don't want to hear is how bad things are with no solutions. KNow what makes things harder in tough times? Bitchin' about it. Sometimes it feels like I am in a boat bailing with both hands while everyone else is sitting on theirs moaning and crying the boat has a leak. Don't bring me down because you are. If we are going to succeed then starting out on the down side of things will just make it harder.

Stop telling me what is wrong with the world and start telling me how you are going to fix it. Not just for yourself because that is a bullshit response. "oh i will go it alone because everyone else is stupid and sucks" is something my kids would have said at Emo13 not now. Grab a gods damn pain, STFU and bail. Less words, more action. Now.

  I hate having to swim through other people's shit to get someplace where I can breath.

but this just pissed me off

 gakked from [livejournal.com profile] morlock . I am not going to get into the whole post here the very first paragraph showed me just what an ignorant idiot the original writer is --
and I quote

"White privilege is when you can get pregnant at seventeen like Bristol Palin and everyone is quick to insist that your life and that of your family is a personal matter, and that no one has a right to judge you, or your parents, because “every family has challenges,” even as black and Latino families with similar “challenges” are regularly typified as irresponsible, pathological and arbiters of social decay."


ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!


Speaking as someone who has been white teenage mom I can only say you Mr. Wise are a fucking idiot. Did you even do any research before you posted this piece of mind numbing stupidity?? Srsly? As someone who suffered from YEARS of being looked down on, spoken down to, assumed to be a welfare mom, ignorant and uneducated simply because I was white, middle class and 17 at the time of my first born's birth I have to call bullshit on this. On top of that try being 21 and have two kids under your belt. *rollseyes*The fact that the cahsiers at grocery stores were visibly shocked because we didn't have food stamps tells me all I need to know about "white priviledge" Seriously. You know nothing and anyone who believes this load of shit must live in an awfully high ivory tower of their own.
