Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

Friends

Mark wrote an introspective post, "101 Things About Me", & it got us thinking about doing something similar. This is a tad more focused & a hell of a lot shorter. It is about friends. You know, that species that you just wanna kill sometimes if they weren't your friends. We also feel that we are on the verge of losing a friend for reasons unknown to us. Considering the, umm, circumstances with this friendship, it's probably for the best. Sad, truly, but past experience has shown us that friends can be fickle indeed- here today, gone tomorrow. Feel free to post your own answers to these questions in the comments link.

There's something to be said about this:

I am a Rock (by Simon & Garfunkel)

A winter’s day
In a deep and dark december;
I am alone,
Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I’ve built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship;
friendship causes pain.
It’s laughter and it’s loving I disdain.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

Don’t talk of love,
But I’ve heard the words before;
It’s sleeping in my memory.
I won’t disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me;
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room,
safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain;
And an island never cries.

Simon and Garfunkle! Great song. I actually have no friends, in person, anyway. All my friends are people I met over the internet.So, that answers all those questions.

There is always a friend in Jesus. Go to Church! There are many nice people there. I have found the more fundamentalist type Churches to be the friendliest. Catholic and Lutheren the least.
