    I'm dead serious

    I'm getting kinda sick of social politics. Who wants to flee with me into the wilderness and form a colony? It could be like the village.

    So soon?
    I've been sick of financial politics for the past 20 years.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Starting a colony would be rad but I dunno why you can't tune it out after a while. I fully admit to not being as affluent with social issues as most people my age may be, sit back, and let others do their mental masturbation.

    20/20 came right out and said the other day that voting is an almost pointless ritual if any voter honestly expects campaign promises to be fulfilled amongst slow moving bureaucracy.

    You guys need to relax. It's only 6 months of social politics followed by 4 years of financial politics.
    It's just an intermission. The Happy Hour of politics.

    Why listen or read the news at all? Same crap different day! I only read sports that I'm interested in. Sports can never fail you unless your team has a bad season!

    Oh I don't even just mean governments. I mean school, work, apartment complexes. It's all gotta go. Fordy's got the idea.

    Yeah you are right on, sean. Its like everyone is always wanting to "but" you to death or procedure you into oblivion. But what is the point of life without some sort of frustrating perpetual set of problems and annoying people with rediculous policies?

    I think you've lost focus.
