If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work. Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done. So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business. This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.
The assassination of Franz Ferdinand was actually the most hilariously botched assassination attempt of all time though, like, I can’t even explain to you how badly it went. I mean there were six guys and the first one chickened out and the second one forgot to factor in the delay on a hand grenade so it exploded like three cars past the archduke’s so the guy took a cyanide pill and threw himself into a river, but the cyanide was expired and the river was six inches deep so the police just pulled him out and took him off to jail and then everyone else basically gave up and headed home, and then the driver of the archduke took a wrong turn and the car stalled next to the last of the six guys, and he was just like “what a crazy random happenstance” and started world war one.
Honestly, Anne did not do anything significant in history. The only thing that probably made her popular was her diary. That’s it! I do plan on reading her diary some time, I hope I can find it. It’s sad that she died at a very young age in a concentration camp, but others did too. Anyways, if you think that I’m wrong about her, please leave a comment, I would like to be proven wrong.
We hold on to things the tightest,
when we are forced to let them go-
We always want things a certain way,
when we know they can’t be so.
Dreams always last the longest,
when they are the furthest from our reach-
And the lessons we can learn the most from,
are often the very ones we teach.
The grass is always the greenest,
when it lies on the other side-
And the truths we preach to others, are often those we can’t abide.
We hold fast to the things in a storm,
which are most likely to blow away-
And yet we neglect to wear sunscreen,
on a bright and sunny day.
We spend our time trying to see things,
when perspective is one thing we lack-
And we never appreciate what we’ve got,
until we can’t get it back.
We expect the whole world to give us a break,
and yet ironically we’ll find-
That when others come asking the same of us,
we tell them they’re out of their mind.
We tell everyone what’s wrong with this world,
and we do nothing to make it right-
We complain about families falling apart,
and yet do nothing to keep them tight.
We preach about loving our neighbors,
and we teach children right from wrong-
But we never set good examples for them,
when real chances come along.
We complain about not having enough time in our lives,
to do what we must do-
Yet if we were given more hours in the day,
we’d use up all that, too.
We desire to be close to all those we love,
yet all too often look on from afar-
And when it comes to the truth do we want to change,
or remain forever as we are?
This is one of my favorite poems that I found, unfortunately I don’t know who wrote it
