Now here's something truly ugly...

Nearly 3,000 mostly American people died on 9/11.

In the five years since then, more than this many American soldiers have died on the premise of avenging the atrocity of that one day.

Every day, 3,000 people in China die due to smoking-related ailments.

Every. Single. Day. Over 30,000 children under the age of five die world-wide of malnutrition.
4,000 for want of vaccines, 5,000 due to unsafe drinking water, 3,000 from malaria, 1,200 of measles, and from other causes so preventable that they are a non-issue in the Western, industrialized world.

Every. Single. Day. 1,400 children under the age of 15 die of AIDS-related illness.

In America, more than 1,500 Americans die of Cancer. Every. Single. Day.

The war in Iraq is costing about $200 Million, per day.

What could cancer research, AIDS research or the Red Cross do with that amount of funding? Half of it? A tenth of it? And sure, they're bureaucratic and inefficient organizations and I'm sure some of the money would go to waste. But would it be going more to waste than it is now?

Priorities. Just saying, you know?

][War: Not really necesarry in a modern society.
][alcohol and drugs: Legalize everything. Everything has a purpose medicinally, recreationally.....even if its toxic......if people want to kill themselves...let them.
][popularity: Its fun but should never be anyones ambition or goal in life, especially while you're in school. It can fuck with your head if you try too hard and your minds becomes more at peace when you don't care about fitting in.
][religion: Alot of the organized religions I have noticed seem to have run their course into the millenia. Majority of the organized religions are obsolete for the most part and their traditionalist conservative views more often then not hold society back from developing, not just in areas of social boundries even in things that you wouldn't even suspect religion plays a part in such as scientific development (Stem- Cells anyone?)

has anyone else here picked up the new dropkick murphys album? what do you think of it? it just came out a few weeks ago and i can't stop listening to it. I really love the title track, the warriors code. if you don't have the album yet you can listen to a few of the songs here on Epitaph's site. has anyone seen them on warped tour this summer? what did you think of their show? boston's boys are doing it again!
