Jim Webb Is Kewlll

“How’s your boy?” Bush asked, referring to Webb’s son, a Marine serving in Iraq.

“I’d like to get them out of Iraq, Mr. President,” Webb responded, echoing a campaign theme.

“That’s not what I asked you,” Bush said. “How’s your boy?”

“That’s between me and my boy, Mr. President,” Webb said coldly, ending the conversation on the State Floor of the East Wing of the White House.

The Big Green Apple

Being that I am a native, NY isnt as exciting for me as it should be or at least how it seems to be in the eyes of migrants and tourists. I sometimes really wish it was and wonder why I am so often bored living in "the greatest city on earth". I do appreciate many things about NY that i know arent common place in other cities states and countries. For example being able to go buy your groceries at 4:30 in the morning. I love nothing more than when someone comes to visit from abroad. Especially when they have never been here. Only than do i get to appreciate NY as anyone should. Seeing the city lights, the big buildings, three beautiful bridges lined right next to one another through the eyes of a simpleton that never left the village they were born in and one day upped and said "To New York Cityyy"!! Is for me the only way to fully absorb the greatness NYC has to offer.

A Chemical Imbalance

I try to convince myself to stay single these days saying any relationship i get into now would just be a mutual waste of time.
But i have to admit its fun to connect with someone on such a level where your every thought revolves around that one person and where making another person happy is your actual goal for the day.

Were All Born Unique But We All Die The Same

Sometimes I wonder about how the effects of sociality and the world in general change us individually. When we are born we are fresh minded and the sky is the limit. After living a little while and having the world rub off on us and our minds molded by people around us we become the same uniform thinking soldiers. Same wants same needs. This has become incredibly boring since everyone wants the same things. No one is unique. The world and everyone in it is in a never ending race that has no winners but many losers. Am I an anarchist? Hardly, but I hate being predictable and doing whats expected of me. Id love to do the complete opposite of what the world thinks a 25 year old Jewish New Yorker would do. Just in spite.

Democracy At Gunpoint Is Tyranny

Normally i dont rant about politics but while driving i noticed a neighbors house with a sign in the window reading "Democracy At Gunpoint Is Tyranny" Its amazing how blind most Americans are to this. An imperialist administration now governs our country. You get a clearer picture when abroad. Bush loves the fact that everyone thinks hes a moron. In hindsight he is enriching all the people that he calls friends and those who have fueled his failed business ventures prior to becoming president. He is actually a sharp, cut throat, int'l business minded financier who manipulated the political system in-order to improve his bottom line. He knows its easy to accept that someone stupid did something wrong. True, in some countries I would get castrated for speaking so freely, but the public mindset (because of their emotions toward terrorism) has become to accept that we are pushing our ways on people that want nothing to do with it. Their set in their ways. If a clear voice was to penetrate the terror alert level conscious, propaganda filled minds of the American public they would easily understand there is no way to westernize the middle east. Thousands of years of Muslim tradition isn't going to be swiped away by any 1 or 2 term governance. Bush's ultimate slap in the face was how he used our help to essentially steal a country and didn't even share the booty. Where the hell is all that oil that was spewing out of the ground burning on our CNN. The war was/is simply a way to enrich the American business elite. Yeah Saddam was an ass and all but there are much bigger fish to fry. Isn't it funny? A country we thought had weapons of mass destruction was obliterated while countries we know have them are left alone. I once thought bush was a bold war time president but he turned out to be a yellow belly pussy. If terrorism is what your 2 term presidency is all about than go it all the way. Put guns in your daughters hands as Saddam has with his sons. Bomb Iran. Bomb N Korea. Bomb SAUDI ARABIA since thats where the 9/11 jackers came from. And while your at it, Bomb all other countries that are trying to protect themselves as we have been doing for the past 230 years.

Funny Money

So the other day when my friend came to my office to gloat about how he made 350k in some deal he closed, I couldnt help but notice being told that is intimidating. Normally I would'nt be but we've known eachother since second grade and him making more cash than i do is not cool. He sometimes asks me why i dont get involved. The real estate business is great and all but you close deals only a few times a year and that wouldnt give me the proactiveness im into. Yagshemash!

Death of a grocery man

Tonight i went to see the Borat movie. I waited months for it to come out and yes it was quite funny but didnt meet my expectations.. Im very confident i would have found it much funnier had i not been informed while on the way to the movies that my corner store grocery man was shot in the head and killed. Religously before starting my day he would make me coffee and i would wonder how he was able to work such long hours (I often see him before going to sleep and then again in the mng for coffee) He was a good guy who worked hard. As a child i grew up playing ball in Marine Park. All too often my brother and i would get chased all the way home by the older black guys that wanted to steal our basketballs and/or bikes. Even after growing up with these "adventures" I can truly say I am not a racist although I am a realist. It was'nt an irish guy that pulled a gold chain my grandma gave me off of my neck while playing a video game at 12 years old. The sad truth is that it was 3 black guys that decided it would be easier to empty the register in my corner grocery store if my coffee man was lying on the floor with a hole in his head. Its a mad world.

"Mad World" by Gary Jules (Damn Good Song)

All around me are familiar faces

Worn out places Worn out faces

Bright and early for the daily races

Going no where Going no where

Their tears are filling up their glasses

No expression No expression

Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow

No tomorrow No tomorrow

Hello, Friend?

I sometimes think about how strange and complex relationships are. What i find is that absolutely everyone changes inevitably. Sometimes the changes are minute and nonapparant. Sometimes they change a persons character or personality. We all have our own self-adapted images of what/how we think others are and sometimes its surprising and unappealing when they turn out diferent. This is the cause of most divorces I think. I've met someone that lost part of their family in a fire and left a very lucrative career on Wall St to become a motivational speaker. He could no longer stand his wife since she was "spiritually beneath him". Another friend married his ex after dating for a solid 4 years and said they both no longer enjoyed eachothers company. So many horror stories keep me resilient after ending a long relationship. Realizing that there probably isnt one person in this world just for me gives me the same feeling an 8 yr old must have when they learn that Santa Claus doesnt exist.

I Wish I Was Easily Amused (Halloween)

Its been a while since I can really say I have been surprised or shocked... Things are beginning to get boring.. Its as if we were given an empty mold on the day we were born and since then we are all trying to fill every corner of it appropriately. Doing what's expected of us and just surfing our generations wave. While at the village parade I noticed nothing shocked me which is scary in itself. There was a blind referee which was cool but things are becoming all to uniform. 4th of July Halloween, I remember egging cars, buses and peoples houses. As illegal as it was, it was actually tolerated and it was damn good fun. Together with the crime and the filth Giuliani took away the True celebratory essence of the 4th of July and Halloween in NY.
