So everyone is clear, I live in the USA (If it's not obvious) Fuck the government. It's like Maya. "Oh shit, look at all these problems??? OH you know what, let's just add on more and more shit until no one notices or cares." Just so may things make me want to destroy everything. I'm still on the verge of tears with how much of my life was wasted in the school system. I loved my teachers, I adored some of them (and I admit, some were actually satan. Racist fucks), and really respected others.
But the content, the testing, and the way we evaluate someone's intelligence, are just outdated, and not right. At all. I do NOT read instructions well. There could be many reasons for that, but I just turn off. I see something once, I'm set for life, Gotcha, primo, yay, let's go.
I taught kids for a while and even though I had to follow a bit of a formulae just to get through the class, it's so clear that no one is dumb, or slow, or distracted, people are just different, and ruining kids' lives because of tests is a terrible thing to do. I'm not going to lie, I have no solution, but I'm so angry that we just keep letting it happen. Just this past year it's started making me angry. (I'm happy with my job, don't get me wrong) I don't know what's causing this, I just know that things are very wrong.
In regards to art? Taxes, small business fees. Taxes should be taken out of transactions, not from your income. It's hard enough being a small business without all those extra fees. There's a reason there's a scale to determine how much the government can tax before people stop working. It's ridiculous! I'm not saying I don't understand the reason for taxes, but don't take the money people make, take it out of the items they buy. There would be far less anger and hatred. Not to mention laws and taxes shouldn't be so difficult you HAVE to hire people to understand it. (Not that I'm dismissing how much work people put into those careers.)
Word wall. I rambled, but I'm not even close to done. I could go on and on. I can't be the only one? isn't this a democracy? Can we just tear it all the fuck down and start over? At a certain point you fuck with it, it's going to get worse, just like art, and you have to start over. These laws were founded so long ago, I get tradition, but damn, I guess we should just bring back the slaves, and pretend to have religious equality. This is stupid, things change, so should our laws and our government. The LGBT marriage laws are a step forward, but there are so many problems, it just makes me want to cry.
If you're a watcher, no I don't talk about politics much, no, and people say that to keep friends, you should never discuss them, but I just have to wonder if it's everyone. How do huge corporations get away without paying taxes? How do the people that pass tax law not have to abide by them? It's absurd, I thought this was a democracy. More like democrazy. Pfff. Hell yeah, I ended on a pun. If you read or even skimmed that, hi five! Let's go burn everything to the ground and make things make sense!
(I mean, so many people fight and die for our freedom, it's like some kind of sick joke. What are we doing? We can do so much better - ugh, I'm done, for real. I'm done.)
