...After all, most of us expect life to be difficult.

No, it's not that, it's all the "good things happening to bad people" that drives you to the brink. And even that wouldn't be so bad if it weren't so continuous and prolific.

4. I don't know this Israeli/Lebanon thing bothers me
the fact that we are supplying these super bombs that are killing all these children
and now we are supplying "NSA" data to Israel, why do I get the feeling that the
White House has no oversight from Congress. Sen. Warner calls us an honest
broker for peace in the Middle East. I think not, I think this is more
Neocon crap.

5. A perfect example is OxyContin Limpballs. After his Viagra slip
through customs was reported with no charges, the man sounds even more arrogant (if that is possible).

Today, I turned him on for the first time in a good month I would say. I get so tired of his BS; anyway, he was talking about Match.com, signing up for it, etc. (didn't he meet his last wife on the Internet?).

A man called in who was a member of Match.com and told Limpballs that the way he was talking about how things worked on Match.com was completely wrong . . . the way he signed up, the way they set up the matches.

Limpballs interrupted him and stated (not verbatim but close to his actual quote), "You have to understand that the way things are done for me, a political radio talk show reporter, an celebrity or ICON, and the way things are handled for the average person, like yourself, are just not done the same way and they never will be."

That pretty much said it all I think. Not just for match.com either.

6. It's not just him...
...I see it everyday with people in my own town. It just seems as if the more rotten you are, the more you talk about people behind their back, the more you engage in political maneuvering and backstabbing, the more duplicitous you are, the more you exploit inequity to your own benefit, then the farther ahead you get and the more exposure you receive as a community pillar.

7. I've Actually Never Cared A Damn When Good Things Happen To Bad People.
I think it's always nice when good things happen regardless of who it happens too. Praise the Lord for all that is good, ya know?

It does bother me, however, if those good things happened at the expense of good people. or absolutely when bad things happen to good people. But I'll never get upset when a good thing happens to anybody, bad or not, as long as that good thing in no way adversely affected another.

8. Well, there's the rub...
...because when those good things occur, it is normally at someone else's expense. In a world of finite resources and opportunities, that is fairly unavoidable.
