So, I was defriended, unfriended, removed as a friend from someone’s facebook.  Yes, I know I was going to talk about my near-death experience, but by the time I publish that story it will be anti-climactic, so it is probably for the best.  Besides, this just happened, and I need to write about it.  OK, where was I?  Oh yeah, someone removed me from their friends list.  What’s up with that?

Now, I am not a huge fan of facebook?  I still haven’t seen the movie, although I plan to, but I just don’t go on it very often.  When I do go on my facebook page, it is usually because I got an email that someone said something to me, tagged me, or I had a stupid thought that I wanted to share on the facebook airways.  Granted, even when I have a stupid thought, of which I have many, I still only hand select a few stupid thoughts worthy enough for me to take the time out to log on and litter your brain with my randomness.  This is the main reason I started a blog.  It gives you, the reader, the option of whether or not you want to log on and read what I have to say.  Most of the stuff I see on facebook, I couldn’t care less about.

But, I find facebook useful in one way, and one way only.  There are people in my life and past life that every now and then I would love to see how they are doing.  The few close friends that I have, hopefully are not relying on facebook to know how my life is going.  If that is the case, then I find that sad, partially because I don’t share enough on facebook for you to know anything about me, of course you could always read my blog =).  I hate emoticons, but I use them, and every time I do, I die a little inside, =(.  Actually, there is one other reason; if I ever won a contest to throw a party for me and 100 of my friends, I now have a mechanism to make that happen.  Have you ever heard one of those contests?  I have never entered a contest where the winner gets to throw a party for 10 or more people.  I am just not that popular.  Oh well.

OK, here is what happened.  A person in my past life popped in my head.  I had befriended them long time ago and thought I would look them up to see how they were doing.  THEY WERE NOT ON MY LIST!  What!  I know I didn’t take them off.  They must have done it.  You know what it felt like.  It was like you have decided to break up with your boy/girlfriend, but before you get a chance to break up, they break up with you.  Suddenly  you are talking about how much you love them and can’t live without them, although had they not broken up with you, you would have broken up with them.  That is how I feel right now.  How can I be removed from a friends list?  I’M BRETT WOODS!  Are you kidding me?  But it is so stupid.  I almost never go on facebook, and this unconscionable action probably took place months ago, maybe even more than a year.  That is how much I have no idea about the activity of people on my friends list.  Maybe there are people on my list that are sad that I don’t interact more.  Possible.  Am I going to change?  No.  And yet here I am, Mr. Sad Face.  What are you going to do? 

This may sound like a stupid irrational reaction to you, and it is, but everyone has their thing.  What is yours?  I hate rejection.  I just do.  You might be saying to yourself, but who doesn’t.  I really, really hate it.  Mainly because I expect everything to go my way, but that is another issue.  I will get over this, eventually, but for now, I must live with the fact that everyone does not want to be my friend.  Sad clown =(

I am at the library right now and there is a woman who is working behind the desk who I think is pretty.  But here is the thing, her beauty is highly depended on her age.  Of course beauty is relative, as I point out in a previous blog, aptly named, Beauty is Relative.  Check out that blog as I discuss additive and subtractive points for different scenarios.  In this case, the librarian gets one point, just by being a librarian.  Hot librarians are rare, and therefore get an automatic point addition by being good-looking.  However, this librarian is unique in that she is 50 years old if she is a day.  So, here is my beauty ranking for her:

If she is 35 years or younger, she is a 3 (no added library point for being below 5)

40 – She is a 4.

45 – She is a 5, plus a point for being a librarian, and gets a final point total of 6.

50 – She is a 6 + 1, for a grand total of 7.

55-60, she is an 8 (7+1).  60-70, brings her up to a 9(8+1).

If she is 70 years old or older, she is a stone cold fox, and receives the coveted 10 ranking with the librarian adjustment.  I’m just sayin …

So, yesterday was election day.  I wish I had more time to give this post the attention it deserves, but it is either a quick post or no post at all.

Our neighbor has a “Vote Pro-Life” sign.  I hate it.  I hate signs in the yard in general.  I also hate bumper stickers.  Not the funny ones, but any bumper sticker that tells me any information about you.  I don’t care about you, and I especially don’t care how smart your kid is or who you plan on voting for, but I digress.  The reason I bring up the sign is because I think voting for anyone because of ONE issue is asinine.  I will NEVER vote for a person because of their stance on abortion, but people do, and I don’t get this.  First of all, no one, neither Republican nor Democrat has touched Roe v. Wade, but most of all, how can an entire politician be summed up by one political stance?  I also find it fascinating that many that are pro-life are also pro-death penalty.  People say, “I’m pro-life because murder is wrong and I am pro death penalty because murder is wrong.” WHAT !?!?  This kind of hypocrisy sickens me.

The other issue I hate are people who vote their party.  How does this make sense?  Are you telling me that ALL Republicans are right and ALL Democrats are wrong, or vice versa?  This is stupid.  If I told you I was Democrat and pro-life (a stupid phrase by the way) would your head explode?  Think about it, who isn’t pro-life?  We are all pro-life, unless we are psycho, just differ on the role of government in the woman’s womb.  Huh? I wonder if we can call pro-choice people Tea Partyist, because they want to reduce government in the womb?

My whole point is that the system is broken, people are crazy and stupid, and no one truly knows what is going on.  This makes me sad, because at the end of the day, people are either voting with little information about the candidates, voting blindly for their party, voting based on who Fox News tells them to vote for, or are not voting at all.  And one wonders why things get so screwed up in this country.

And why does running for election require so much money?  Are you telling me that with the “free” technology of the internet, one could not get their message across to millions of people without spending millions of dollars?  Here is a simple campaign reform: No one is allowed to spend more than $50,000.  Third party commercials/advertising is illegal.  Major parties can still hold conventions to select a candidate.  Anyone found to accept money from outside sources will be disqualified.  Debates are paid for by a government fund and each candidate gets to run ONE 20-second commercial also paid for by a government fund.  Simple.  How would this NOT work?  Eliminate money, and maybe, just maybe, we will get politicians that will do what is right and not try to placate their money sources.

I’m sick, just sick with our current system, and no I am NOT a communist, I just think we are smart enough, we have the technology, and have evolved to do better.  Just my opinion.

Do you read the Harry Potter books?  Remember when there was a new Minister of Magic (or something like that) and when he got in office there was this talking painting that told him all the secrets of the previous Ministers?  His response was like, “Why wasn’t I told about this before I took office?”  And the talking painting asked him “Are you going to tell the next guy all this?”  I think there is a talking painting of George Washington in the Oval Office that tells each President secrets.  Remember when Obama said he would make government transparent.  I think painting George has told him some crazy stuff, and Obama’s reactions was, “Shoot, I can’t tell people this.”  What other explanation is there for EVERY president NOT doing what they said they would.  There is a talking painting in there, I know it!  What other explanation can there be?  I’m just sayin …
