10 Years After: 2005 -- Which One's Pink?



This one went around the world and back in September, 2005.

Damn but I really did do a lot of writing that first year.

Oh by the way, which one's Pink? *



* (I will rarely do a modification to an existing post, but this seemed too sadly appropriate not to add.)

This is a graphic-intensive post, and be advised the last few images are rather strong.

They are tragically nothing you won't see on your local news, but some people may find them disturbing, and my intention is not to be gratuitous.

I'm simply furious.


("Us and Them", from "Dark Side of the Moon" by Pink Floyd, 1973)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Us



and Them



And after all we're only ordinary men






Me,



and you



God only knows



it's not what we would choose to do



Forward he cried from the rear



and the front rank died



And the General sat, as the lines on the map


moved from side to side



-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Black


and Blue



And who knows which is which and who is who


Up


and Down


And in the end
it's only round and round
and round


Haven't you heard it's a battle of words


the poster bearer cried


Listen son, said the man with the gun


There's room for you inside



Down


and Out



It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about



With,


without,


And who'll deny that's what the fightings all about


Get out of the way, it's a busy day


And I've got things on my mind


And for want of the price...


of tea and a slice


The old man died



Fuck these men, and God damn you if you voted for them.

I don't believe for one minute in a petulant and vengeful Deity that murders people to score debating points. However, if I did actually put my faith in such childish superstitions, I think I would be be much less inclined to blame gays for every single bad thing that happens and pay very close attention to the fact that God is at His most wrathful when foolish men in great nations make monsters into kings.

May God forgive us for letting criminals and madmen run our country.

Yea, verily. The fact that people such as these achieve dominance shows the system, as it exists in America, is completely broken.

It's a sad fact that there is no money for Healthcare, food, decent shelter or any of those things that make life bearable. Plenty for killing.

Thank You. That takes a little of my hostility for today away.
The more I read the more angry I got till here.
At least I know I'm not the only one to feel this way.
