Waging War Against Life’s Daily Battles

Some times you just get the shit beaten out of you.

Every day, every hour, no matter what you do, no matter your outlook, no matter whether you believe in God. No matter how hard you fight, claw or pray. None of it matters. No one is immune from the vagaries of this cesspool of corruption, pain and misery in which we live.

I see misery and unhappiness everywhere; train stations, work, people walking down the street. All struggling, clawing for whatever little scraps this world is willing to bestow on them, as if it is imparting a gift of a few moments of relief from the world. You see it too, but perhaps you choose not to recognize it; to give it the full faith and recognition it warrants.

Home life? Work? Travelling or commuting? Dealing with the constant battles of life? They beat us up. Everyday.

Scammers are everywhere and everyone tries to game the system.

People want free stuff and will lie, cheat, steal, scam or do anything to do it. As long as it is someone else’s ox that gets gored.

You do not achieve great wealth in this country without cheating or scamming. Lawyers overbill clients and concoct fraudulent lawsuits, Wall Streeters cheat their clients and churn accounts. People scam Medicare, flying around the world on trips, having the best cell phone service and HDTV’s while hiding their income from taxation or and living off the public teat as if we are nothing more than a hose from which they can siphon off whatever they need off the backs of our children’s debt.

But for some people, scamming others isn’t even enough.  No, some particularly loathsome individuals scam God. Or at least they try to. They don’t want to feel the slightest pain of sacrifice, so they scam the rules, find loopholes and yet still present themselves as defenders of the faith. Hypocrites like this deserve to be targets of the Misanthrope. Continue reading
