Maybe it's age. Maybe it's cynism. Maybe it's both.

I am just finding as I get older that it is increasingly difficult to keep my mouth shut when stupidity stares me in the face. Unfortunately, with the internet and forums galore, not only does stupidity stare me in the face, but it sticks its tongue up my nose as well. Bleah.

Case #1. I just switched my cel service from Cingular to Sprint. I found a cool board called sprintusers.com. Cool in the fact that people talk about all things Sprint. Uncool in that many users are extraordinarily stupid with way too much time and money on their hands. The majority of people seem to think Sprint is the devil and are determined to get something for nothing. Other people blame every single problem they have on Sprint. Still others are completely clueless, creating threads like "Should I go to Sprint?"

Yeah, dumb shit. Figure it out. How lazy must you be to just post on a board instead of doing any actual research?

Of course that's just the tip of the iceberg. Our country is getting MUCH worse WAY too fast.
Quiz-- how much has congress voted itself in raises since it raised the minimum wage to 5.15/hr? 30 GRAND a year. Yep. They can't seem to find it in their hearts to make sure people are paid a living wage, but by god, they make sure to take care of themselves!

here in Indiana (Yes, I know I didn't capitalize. I'm on a roll. Fuck it.) I saw a state rep car with a #30 license plate. I'm sure they are coded, and I'd like to find out who it is. It was a nice new shiny Pontiac Solstice. Nice to know where my tax dollars are going.

But don't get me started..
