Originality.

Taken Off Dictionary.com

** the quality or state of being original.
**ability to think or express oneself in an independent and individual manner; creative ability.
**freshness or novelty, as of an idea, method,    or performance.

Be yourself. Don’t be somebody you wish you were , The thing about us is that everybody is different and everybody is unique in our own individual way.


“Where is your Originality?
You are so fake so picture me like a gallery.
Capture What i say. All i need is one mic. All i need is one take.” –
Lil Wayne .

Assisted Suicide

Should people be allowed to kill themselves? I don’t mean just because they want to, but should terminally ill patients (those with a progressive, incurable illness), or anyone else for that matter, be allowed to choose to die? The freedoms of liberty, property, speech and many others are protected under the U.S. Constitution; supposedly. Based upon the U.S. Constitution, people can make decisions about themselves and their lives and surroundings; usually if they don’t hurt others in the process. Essentially, we are all guaranteed certain freedoms. Freedoms such as life.

Assisted suicide is when someone is provided with the means (drugs or equipment) to commit suicide. The controversial topic is usually aroused when discussing someone who is clearly on their way to death; possibly a very painful one. Should victims of AIDS or cancer or other plagues and illnesses suffer the wrath of their worsening condition? Should they be allowed to kill themselves painlessly before their progressive state plunges them into a bath of agony?

Many places allow assisted suicide with certain laws in place. A retired Norwegian physician, Christian Sandsdalen, had his medical license revoked after he admitted giving a morphine overdose to a woman suffering from MS (multiple sclerosis), a condition where the immune system attacks the central nervous system, damaging the spinal cord and brain; physical abilities and cognitive abilities (the way the brain processes information) begin to fade away. He was not put in jail, but had his license revoked. In Finland, there have been many cases where someone’s friend or family member assists in their suicide. They simply inform law enforcement officials and nothing more is done. Germany has no penalty for assisted suicide. Neither does France, nor Denmark, nor Scotland. In many places there are just simply no laws dealing with the issue. No law of the land. Law of the Bible or any other religious text, however, may play a large role in such acts.

The Bible states that one must repent (ask for forgiveness) for the sins that they commit. But if you commit suicide, you’re already dead, so you can’t ask for forgiveness. For those who believe in the Bible, it is said that those who commit suicide go to hell. But what about the people who assisted in the suicide? They can repent. Can’t they? Can they repent for playing the role of God himself?

Whether you believe the Christian faith or not, the U.S. law was formed around it. When you go to church, you must swear upon the Holy Bible that your testimony is valid. So it is sensible to speak about whether or not it is proper to “play God” when discussing such a controversial issue in America. Should anyone be allowed to play the role of God? Is helping someone end their suffering playing God? Is it just out of sheer love?

Would you assist in the suicide of your mother? What if she begged and pleaded you to “..help set her free..”? Could you aid her in suicide then? What about a mother to her children? Ask Carol Carr, age 61.

 

Carol Carr and sons

Carr, an American woman from Georgia, assisted in the suicide of her two sons, Michael, age 42, and Andy, age 41. The two brothers both fell ill to Huntington’s Diease.

A normal human brain

A normal human brain

 

This is an inherited genetic neurological disorder. The brain’s huntingtin gene normally provides information to produce the huntingtin protein. When affected, the gene produces a mutant protein resulting in an increase rate of neuronal cell death. This leads to the lack of neurological functions. Physically, victims will display uncontrollable, random jerking movements. Cognitively, victims will begin to lose the ability of planning and memory loss, both short term and long term appear over time. Psychiatrically, the victim will become anxious, depressed, egocentric, aggressive, and may develop many other unfortunate characteristics. With serious progression, patients mentally become different people, and become physically disabled. She shot her two terminally ill sons in June of 2002 and was sentenced to five years in prison.

Should assisted suicide be allowed? If so, who should be allowed to assist? Can murderers be let off of possible punishment by saying that they assisted in suicide of another? Is it ethical? Is it moral? Is it playing with fire, or playing the role of God? Should assisted suicide be allowed with strict government regulation? Could the government successfully regulate assisted suicide? Is it the governments decision? Is it your decision; my decision; God’s decision? Who decides? For more information visit assistedsuicide.org

 

Cops Just Enjoy to Pother others

I remember watching these video’s a while back but never really had the chance to think and analyze what was occuring .Im disgusted of these Youtube Videos , I feel officers nowadays think that they running shit like its their own . Public places such as Sidewalks are paid for by us . Their very own salary is paid by us. Police cars are paid for by us. Heck, Even Gas for the Police cars are paid by us . And what do we get back ? Flatout Disrespectful fools that have no manners , And to me they look like they find it Hedonic to rough teenagers who are Sk8ERS. (Skateboarders). But , Most importantly I would love to know why all the innocent people get pulled over and stopped , Its never all of the people crack-dealing or any kind of Drug Dealing  . Im sure they aren’t up for that challenge . Because I have yet to see them doing that to any Drug Dealer’s. I guess they must know what’s up . Because for a dealer , their rules are “Escape by any means necessary”.

I Just had to let you guys witness what Im speaking on behalf of , So for all of you SK8ers out there , ALWAYS KEEP YOUR CAMERA ROLLING ! THE BEST PART IS HOW THEIR PUNISHMENTS ARE 4 WEEKS OF SUSPENSION WITH PAY ! THAT MEANS THEY GO ON A VACATION FOR 4 WEEKS FOR PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY MESSING WITH SK8ERS !! I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU MUST BE THINKING BUT THAT SOUNDS LIKE A REWARD TO ME ! THEY ARE ABUSING THEIR RIGHTS ON SKATERS WITH NO MEANS OR INTENSIONS ON ANYTHING WITH A NEGATIVE VIBE !!!

EDIT : And I thought this only happened to people of color ? But now I have changed my opinion, I beg to differ .

BONUS : This is what takes place when Officers Mess with the wrong people .So , I guess this is what they fear . This is the reason why they never anticipate towards people who are commiting Crimes . THIS VIDEO IS RATED E FOR EVERYONE BECAUSE EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH THIS !

Well, The Title explains it all . Lately , Ive been hearing girls talking about how Guys are the Freaks. Wrong !(us) Dre & Don Have come to a Precise Clear-Cut Actuality that Girls are the freaks . Nothing else needs to be said . For all of you girls out there , Im sure you already have come to that conclusion . Our studies show that girls are 50% equally freaks to guys when sober . But as soon as they get in contact with some kind of government illicit drug , OR alcohol ! Their sexual wants arise to an amazing 100% changing mindset towards guys . Haha !  Good day to you all . Today is Sunday August 24, 08 & school starts in 3 days for MoCo. Have a good weekend ! (try not to think of school , Instead think of what to wear ! lol)

BONUS : When parties get shutdown , have something else planned , Ever heard that saying “Plan for the worst hope for the best” , Its nothing but the truth ! Over & Out !
