    " As Tim Krieder suggested in The Pain – When Will It End’s America’s Scum Belt, the motto of the area could well be ‘You ain’t from around here, are you?’ – not exactly hostile, but far from friendly, and a gentle and constant reminder of the area’s fundamental resistance to outside influence."

    Given that's it only ended about 150 years ago I constantly amazed the the U.S.A. functions.

    learned helplessness is almost always externally applied

    freak set me strait about paul and what he knew when he talked to his son
    wasnt a question persay

    was something id determined for myself
    which got shown the door

    something id believed
    incorrectly

    i will henceforth be more careful
    in construing my questions
