issue of main concern regarding a given subject
My chief beef about "Black Swan"? I don't know how it relates to the immigrant experience.
Basically, a person who likes being alone. Unlike the social attitude that says people who are alone are really unhappy inside, many loners are actually the happiest when they're alone. Rather than finding solace in friends and family, they find solace in things such as video games, Internet, books, etc.
But the main way political beliefs are inputted into people is through being social and associating one's self with others. So unfortunately, many loners tend to have radical beliefs and hold morals that greatly differ from their peers and even their own family. To put it simply, you can find a communist in a family of patriotic Americans or a conservative in a family of liberals.
Grandfather: Women's rights should be the main concern!
Father: Gay marriage should be allowed!
Son: Welfare should be abolished!
An adjective used to describe basically anyone attractive. SEE, pretty people MUST be shallow, huh? In a lot of cases, this is true, but not because of their appearance. A lot of people who don't fit society's standard of pretty are as shallow as a petri dish.
Also used to describe people who can pick out any guy/girl to ask out or talk to just by looking at them.
"I am NOT shallow, I like people with depth!! Nevermind that my main concern is how I look and appear to other people!"
-Paraphrase of speech given by an undeniably deep person... well the true stuff that wasn't said, anyways.
A German philosopher of the late nineteenth century. Fredrick Nietszche began his academic career in philology, the study of languages and linguistic systems. He became an admirer of Wagner, with whom he later fell out. Following the publication of 'The Geneology of Morals', his main concern was to reaffirm life in 'the twilight of the idols'.more...
His phrase 'god is dead, we are all his murderers' was not an attack against religion as such, but against nihilism which believed in nothing on the one hand, and on the churches and christians who had sapped the true value and meaning out of life and religion on the other. Thus he claimed the churches were 'sepulchres', and the nihilists he urged to 'keep holy your highest hope'. That hope he grounded in the act of creation, and affirmed in the idea of 'eternal recurrence' - the ultimate affirmation of life.
These ideas are best outlined in 'Thus Spoke Zarathustra', in particular the sections 'The Tree on the Mountainside' and 'On the Three Metamorphoses'. In this last section he outlines how the human soul begins as 'a camel' wieghted down by loyalty to the old gods, then he must become a 'lion' and denounce them before becoming 'a child' who creates a new value and new meaning for his life.
Nietzsche owed much to Eastern, particularly Buddhist metaphysics, as well, I suspect, as being influenced by William Blake and Wagner. His is the same kind of reaffirming existential mission. His influence on the 20th C. existential...

and seize packages and pocket the currency
Clicks control strips full clips are sprayed
Yellow tape barricades sidewalks where bodies lay
Madness strikes at twelve o'clock midnight
Stick up kids on the ground broke the staircase light
And I stays harassed, scramblin for petty cash
Jakes on my ass young bucks is learnin fast
357's and 44's
Bought inside corner stores, their fire sparks the wars
Hospital floors surrounded by the law
Homicide questioning while the Jakes guard the door
My hood stay tense, loyalty puts strength in my team
Cause niggaz main concern is CREAM
Some niggaz in the jet black Gallant
Shot up the Chinese resteraunt, for this kid named Lamont
I thought he was dead but instead he missed a kid
and hit a twelve year old girl in the head and then fled
Tactical narcotic, task force, back off fast
Cause the crime boss is passin off cash
Extortions, for portions of streets, causes beef
Havin followers of Indians trying to play Chief
You witness the saga, casualties and drama
Life is a script, I'm not a actor but the author
of a modern day opera, where the main character
is presidential paper, the dominant, factor

|6.||Desert Foothills Jr. High|
The crappiest Jr. High School in Arizona, where their main concern is if you where your hood up on your jacket or not, instead of the kids who are cutting themselves in the corner or the kids flunking 7th Grade for the fiftieth time in a row, and a girl came to school and shot at people because someone "took" her boyfriend.
Mike: What school do you go to?
Emily: Desert Foothills JHS
Mike: haha, that sucks.
He's not a retard. As someone else already pointed out, that's offensive to those who are retarded but struggle on with their lives. George Bush jr. never had to struggle for anything other than to take a shit out of his coke-constipated colon. George Bush jr. CHOOSES to be as dumb as he is, chooses to deal with the people he deals with, chooses to shaft the US public whilst telling them he's celibate. I can only hope that one day he has a heart attack whilst his cock's stuck in the donkey on the white house lawn, so the press find him like that...
Bush said the US had proof Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. 8 months prior to 9/11, Bush had members of the Taleban over to discuss the building of a major section of an oil pipeline through Afghanistan (suprise surprise, now it won't cost so much)
Bush claims to have human rights as his main concern (hence the afghanistan invasion and then iraq) yet continues to ignore widespread human rights abuses in nigeria (but there's oil there, and Shell), saudi arabia (he's still buddies with their rulers though), the sudan (nothing of monetary value there, so who cares eh?), chechnya (ditto), somalia (ditto) and so on. You gotta love his consistency (about the same as oil, i'd say)
