It should be our words and our actions that determine things and not damn money but of course it will never that way in a greed driven fallen world where the top 500 richest americans hold more wealth than the bottom 150,000,000 and so time flys by and life is too short and most peoples hopes and dreams are shattered and broken remaining unfufilled and torn asunder because of the almighty evil f###en dollar bill and thats all so sad and sickening and true so excuse me while i go vomit my morning sickness that lasts all day and night...
