There are a lot of good comments here about people being bad. I'd have to agree - It is a sad state of affairs today in this world, in comparison to a few decades ago. I think that Thomas Jefferson alluded to this many years ago, stating that when cities get overcrowded these things tend to happen.

I'll still help someone out that is in need or needs a hand, but I won't be anyone's con. Part of feeling good about ourselves is in how we can help others...doesn't have to be free all the time, but doesn't always require a payment when you do someone a favor either. Just be the wiser, in the dealings and circumstances that (only you) allow yourself to get involved with at any given time. Then it's a mutual arrangement and all benefit.

Bullshark, sorry to see you were having such a bad day. We all have them, along with good ones. Have a good one tomorrow bud!

And as for helping family only!!!???!! Ha they will screw you to...

Guys it's bad out there! I don't see an end in sight...we are talking a major overhaul of our whole thought process... I did get a good lead from my rant in here last week so we shall see how it turns out!
Damn Jason you got Ganked bad, sorry too hear it. The Chef is absolutley right too. The Oxy/Roxy addicts are VERY bad. When they are DTint off them they will steal from anyone to feel better. It's Heroin in pill form and just as addictive. Lock up and get survalliance cameras. I just upgraded my system and it was pretty cheap. I can send you the link. You can watch all zones from any computer or smart device and record with a click, and have motion sensors active 24/7 . All wireless signal just need power and wifi.

Sometimes it's not a generational thing, I just bought a boat and the guy I bought it from was in his 60's. He looked my straight in the eys and told me BOLD FACE lies. This was to the tune of..... I now had to replace my motor on the boat I just bought.

I don't think being religious has anything to do with being a good person! You can have morals without believing in god, some of the worst people I've ever met claimed to be Christians and religious. As an example, look at the multitudes of convicts who "find god" If the only reason you do the "right" thing is because you're afraid of going to hell then you are not a good person anyways!

More evil was perpetrated on this planet in the name of religion than all other causes put together.
