nd. I have ZERO substances in my life - used to do 2 or 3 glasses of wine, like my folks, before me. One day it hit me - What do I do so poorly at the task of Living, that I need substances to enhance the way I feel? Now, if I used any substances it would bring me DOWN from my natural high.

INSANITY: PARTICIPATING IN AN ECONOMY DESIGNED TO ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR YOUR LABOR, FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION; AN ECONOMY DESIGNED TO MAKE THE VAST MAJORITY OF PEOPLE IRRELEVANT. How much longer do you think this can go on? How much longer do you plan to participate in your own enslavement, impoverishment?

LIBERALS, WHAT’S THE DAMN GOOD REASON MANY RIGHY’S HATE YOU? * They can’t win in your world, in your economy. They can’t. They don’t have the education, the background, the social, emotional, intellectual capital. Weren’t born to it, like you. * They see, they sense, that soon your world won’t have enough jobs, places, EVEN FOR YOU. Yours is the world of educated technocrats, and between automation, and concentration of wealth, daily, fewer of you are needed. * Raising the minimum wage does not change this. MUSICAL CHAIRS.

*  They can’t win in your world, in your economy.  They can’t. They don’t have the education, the background, the social, emotional, intellectual
capital. Weren’t born to it, like you.

*   They see, they sense, that soon your world won’t have enough jobs, places, EVEN FOR YOU.  Yours is the world of educated technocrats, and between
automation, and concentration of wealth, daily, fewer of you are needed.

nd. The homeless shelter in which I live will be closing. Sometime in the next 12 months. City wants the real estate for high rent, and they want we homeless gone. We're becoming illegal in the DC, just as we are fast becoming across the US. I'd say there's a 50% chance I'll move back on the streets and go to prison for the rest of my days, making a stand, against a society that values stuff over a meaningful place in the society for all citizens. Interesting. I find no meaningful place for myself. I find I am not wanted anywhere. There are millions like me, and the % is growing daily.
