Rants About Everything.
Perhaps a psychopath's everyday opinion simmered a little with anger or cooled down with reason.

Okay! So. I think animal testing is completely wrong. Yes, I am aware of the benefits, however, there is a difference between the sacrifice of one (or few) for the benefit of all, and torture. Many would argue that the animals don't have souls, therefore it is better to test on them then homo sapiens.
I believe that with a soul comes the capacity to feel. There are a large number of animals capable of showing that they are happy, for example, dogs. There is an even greater number of animals that show fear. Fear is an emotion, I, personally, do not believe to just come with the instinct to survive.
So let us pretend we all agree that they have souls, i.e. non-human beings. So now they would tell me they are less intelligent beings unable to communicate or comprehend the world around them. They can't build rockets that will take us to the moon. Okay. So are you telling me that we should also start conducting tests on those mentally handicap and unable to speak? We won't even go there really, because I am sure somewhere that is happening anyway, and it is just as wrong.
Now let's just go with another personal belief of mine. I am agnostic. I don't know if I believe in God, or divine beings, or anything such as. I haven't figured that out yet, but for the sake of saying that I believe, I would also put into that belief that we, as humans, were not put here to abuse this planet and it's living beings for our own benefits. I would believe that we are meant to be caretakers, not a plague. Instead we infest, pillage, and plunder, as it were, this planet we call our "home". I think its tragic.
On to the violence towards these researchers/"researchers". I put it quoted as well as non-quoted because, yes, the tests the perform do benefit us, but it is also cruel and torturous to these living beings they "test" medicines, and such, on. I do not endorse the violence. I think it is a major step in the WRONG direction. To be honest, I would love to take these researchers and make them become the subjects to their own tests, but I would not actually act on that feeling, nor do I feel as though anyone else should. We can't bring about real change that anyone would fully stand behind if it was taken at forceful measures.

Now I would like to move on to something I came across on Deviantart.com.
Here is a link to the deviation. Read the artist's comments.
Here was my response:
The economy must shift with the faults. There will always be greed, and so capitalism will always lead to the downfall of an economy. It fell because of the lack of regulations. A true balance would not include a totally free market like so many would like to believe. The government should always be involved in the market, even if only somewhat. Otherwise it will just lead back to depression. People will always lie about money that does not exist just to get the sale, and that is what screwed our economy over.
As for being called a Euro-American.
I call a African American a black person. I can slightly agree with you on that issue about being called that, with political correctness and all. However you may want to remember that there are many other words, or slurs, for people of the skin color, and that not too long ago people would call them black with hate behind the word. I can understand the sensitivity to the word.
Though I agree with you on that, it has absolutely nothing to do with Obama being elected, and I believe that he will do much more good for this country than McCain would have.
Countries are diplomatic, there are few, if any, that want only to destroy us. You are ignorant in that issue. You have to realize that there are some people, extremists, who act out and who you are basing that generalization on.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it
Here be a screen shot of my response, I'm putting it up for no real reason, just thought I should.

It is sad that the economy has crumbled because of deceit and lies about money that didn't exist just to generate business. It is ridiculous that so many people have to pay for the mistakes and lies of people trying to get that sale that will give them more commission or whatever. The Free Market Economy really only seems to allow greed to be ahead of the pact screwing so many other people over.
The government should temporarily take over the major businesses that put us in this mess and fix up some things, not give them a blank check with the only catch is that it has to be paid back. The heads of these corporations should have never seen a cent of the money given to them by the government. They should receive a pay cut, a drastic one.
The Economy is a joke, the proper people aren't being punished, just everyone else who had nothing to do with it's fall. It's fucked up, and it's still happening. Hopefully Obama will shed some light on the situation and help patch it up, because right now, people are losing their jobs by the thousands everyday.
Good luck calling in Unemployment if you need to, it's difficult to even be put on a more than hour long hold.

Boston Children's Hospital is now offering sex change clinics for children as young as seven. That is something I believe to be a very big mistake. Yes children can feel as though they are in the wrong gender body from a young age, but the decision to change their sex should not be allowed until at least the age of sixteen. Transforming from one gender to another does make an immediate and very potent change on one's life. It is a decision that shouldn't be allowed at a time in life when the world is quick to judge you, especially peers. The harassment that could easily come with the decision, because peers are not open minded to such things, could be devastating to the way the child grows and develops. They could easily become depressed, suicidal, or even violent towards others. I would say the age of sixteen to be the youngest point you can decide that because at that point you can look at the good things that would come of it, but also the many negative reactions you will get from close minded society.
If I was a psychologist I would have much more to say on the matter. Children's minds have not even developed enough to understand what comes with a sex change.
Also in some ways being gay or trans gender is a fad, and what do kids to? They try to be cool. They could try so hard to be cool, convince their parents they really want to change sex, and realize later that they made a really big mistake, that they liked their original sex.

I like to write, I like to draw, I go to College, I'm not sure what I want to be yet, I love music, I'm bisexual. I also like to play Volleyball, shoot some hoops, and play video games, like Halo, once in a while.
People find comfort in masses of others who may share only one trait with them, and I admit, I as well do the same, but I don't think people keep their identity with them, I think for the time they are with that mass they identify themselves as that trait. Example: Gay, Star Wars Geek, Mother to be, Father to be, Activist, union worker, etc.
I realize that this entry doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. Let me explain. I have a friend who everyone knew was gay before he would ever admit it. He got in fights about it in middle school and was always made fun of in high school. Now that he has finally come out of the closet to everyone he identifies as gay. When he does something, a lot of the time he says something close to "I'm gay, what did you expect" and it drives me insane. I hope this gives everyone a better understanding of this post and why I wrote it.

If it is true that the cost will rise, why should it matter? The wind turbines are very expensive to build, thus the cost of them will have to be paid off, but over time the costs will decrease, we will have cleaner air, and a more environmentally friendly renewable energy source. Most of the energy that will be used will pass through
Addressing the Forty-Three foot forest: People who live on
Transformer oil is, alas, essential to transforming the energy and sending it to the cape and the islands. If we keep using fossil fuels, plenty of ships carrying oil will pass there having a much larger chance of seeping into and contaminating the ocean.The Arguments against cape wind seem to be less educated and more of greed.
