I CARE about people, I have FRIENDS. [View all]

I am a Liberal - I have friends, I care about people.

Politically, I self-identify as a Progressive - I want to see Progress in our Political system. 3 steps forward + 2 steps back still equals 1 step forward. I'm willing to compromise as long as our country moves forward and not backward. This means not always doing what I think is "right" - but what I feel is "expedient". As long as I feel our country is Progressing.

There are many who disagree with me - good! I don't suspect that I am perfect. As long as we progress, not go backwards. For everyone, not just me. Because I care about people.

There are some here who seem to care about no one but themselves. And, they expect everyone else to think as they do.There are some who brag about their own salaries. There are some who post "how have YOU benefited..." ignoring the good for the masses that such actions have taken.

If a FRIEND of mine is doing better, then it makes my heart lighter. I might not be Gay, but I have a lot of friends who are - and if THEY are able to serve in the Armed Services openly (I have a friend who I suspect is Gay who recently joined the National Guard) or able to marry the person they love, I am happy (even though I am divorced and am down on marriage). Because their happiness makes me happy.

If you Google "definition sociopath" you will come across this entry:

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=sociopath

A sociopath is mainly identified by there being something very wrong with a person's conscious. They either 1) have a conscious with "holes" in it, 2)they don't seem to have one at all or 3) they are able to completely neutralize their sense of conscious into a perspective that they aren't doing anything wrong.
One thing is for sure: Sociopaths only care about themselves and only see themselves as being "real" or truely human. Everybody and everything outside of themselves are twisted in their mind into mere objects to be used to achieve personal fulfillment.
A sociopath oftin {sic} believes that they are doing nothing wrong or doing something greatly good, due to their egocentricity and grandiose sense of self-worth. They will cold-bloodedly take what they want and do as they please at any expense of anyone in their lives; predators who satisfy their lust for power and control through superficial charm, manipulation, intimidation, and violence.


Sound familiar?

In the words of the Late, Great George Harrison of The Beatles:

All through the day, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
All through the night, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
Now they're frightened of leaving it
Everyone's weaving it
Coming on strong all the time
All through the day I me mine

I-I-me-me-mine, I-I-me-me-mine
I-I-me-me-mine, I-I-me-me-mine

All I can hear, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
Even those tears, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
No-one's frightened of playing it
Everyone's saying it
Flowing more freely than wine
All through the day I me mine

I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine
I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine

All I can hear, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
Even those tears, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
No-one's frightened of playing it
Everyone's saying it
Flowing more freely than wine
All through your life I me mine All through the day, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
All through the night, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
Now they're frightened of leaving it
Everyone's weaving it
Coming on strong all the time
All through the day I me mine

I-I-me-me-mine, I-I-me-me-mine
I-I-me-me-mine, I-I-me-me-mine

All I can hear, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
Even those tears, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
No-one's frightened of playing it
Everyone's saying it
Flowing more freely than wine
All through the day I me mine

I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine
I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine

All I can hear, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
Even those tears, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
No-one's frightened of playing it
Everyone's saying it
Flowing more freely than wine
All through your life I me mine
