New Most Hated Phrase
I'm going green. I am so sick of hearing this. Like if they were actually turning green, would be the only acceptable excuse for saying this. Unless you are turning into the hulk or the Jolly Green Giant, stop telling people you are turning into my favorite color. Now some of my friends will ask, "I thought blue was your favorite color?" The answer? "That was before I decided to go green". I am joking of course. I did change my mind though. The dumb thing about it is I like the fact that people are consuming less and more responsibly, it just bothers me when people are hypocritical about it. Some things are OK and others are not. You can't say you are green and drive a gas guzzling vehicle. I drive a mini-van because I have too many children, but you won't catch me lecturing anyone on consuming less. You can't be for animal rights and wear leather shoes or carry a leather purse. You can't be anti-war and be pro-abortion. Be consistent. If you hate violence, hate all violence. I do. I hate it. I hate war, I hate abortion, I hate corporate killing through a capitalistic country, I hate unfair trade both here and overseas. I think the lives of the Iraqis are just as precious as the lives of Americans. I I think Jesus loves terrorists and extremists just as much as He loves fundamentalists. If you are for love, be for love for everyone, not just your friends, that's easy, but your enemies too.
Labels: I also hate the word "amazing" now, I hate the phrase "If you will", I hate when people say "Fact" before an argument they are about to make
I'm a simple person to figure out. I usually write it all down here. I try not to pretend to be anything. I am what I am and that's good enough until it's not anymore. I want my kids to remember me smiling when I'm gone. Integrity is the very basis of a good life. I love my God, my wife, my kids, my friends, and I try to love all of the rest of you.
