    I actually never said that I don't believe in sin, I just declined to answer your question. There's a whole lot of baggage with the word, it implies a lot of things. I don't know, I have my personal beliefs, and I don't really find it necessary to impose them on others, they're really not of that nature.

    There are some areas where, yes, I feel I must impose myself on the world, and I must act. I don't claim to be a saint, but there are certain things I can't go along with.

    I tried fence-sitting like I was supposed to, and it really didn't work for me. I couldn't do it, in the end.

    And do you take me as a fence sitter?

    Not at all. I don't know what your beliefs are.

    Personally, though, I think it's not always a bad thing to take an unpopular stand, although some people might consider it arrogant, disruptive, or egotistical.

    Never sit on the fence. Especially pointy ones.

    This is possibly going to sound ridiculous but I wonder if anyone in their vast and broad ranging study has encountered any good books on the protocols of the elders of zion? I dont really want to read the thing itself because I'm pretty sure its vile racist propaganda, the same way that no matter how interested I may be in politics I dont ever want to read Mein Kampf, but I'm interested in what the document is and what its origins were, I understand, for instance, that it was originally attributed to bonapartists, or French republicans, and could just be a list of conservative or right wing traditionalists fears about a vague "them" who want to destroy "all they hold dear", as a consequence I'm interested in how the "they" and what "they hold dear" both evolve over time.

    It's two thirty in the morning and I can hear a couple going through my recycle bin outside for aluminum cans. There's nothing to worry about. /Oakland

    I made more today my first couple hours at work than I did in a whole day one year ago.

    I made almost more than I did a week a couple years ago.

    This feeling is great. I have the power to command the way I wish to live.
