aw, hell.

Ok, I really didn't expect that last post to cause so much of an explosion. It was not intended to be attacking or looking down on any of you. There's a lot unstated there, stuff from my parents, stuff from my religion, stuff I didn't feel like spelling out explicitly. Apparently I should have.

Will clarify later, probably to friends-only due to the family stuff.

Hey, I wasn't trying to attack you personally, just how you phrased your ideas. I think most of us who posted were just looking for clarification, as your post seemed to be bashing things with very little backup. I didn't feel attacked, personally, 'cause I know you don't do that, I was just trying to figure out what you meant by the post, and I am *very* interested in further elucidation of your ideas.

We love you!

hey, a little debate is good for the soul :) or the mind, at the very least, as it forces us all to think.

and if you need to clarify--clarify away! I personally would love to read it...

I'll jump on the bandwagon of not thinking you meant any of it personally. I think people were just trying to give you their POVs so you could see the other options. If you want to spell things out for yourself and us by clarifying, go for it. But don't feel obligated.

I think your post was head on, and many people reacted because they too are forced to live as "responsable adults". We are forced to do this because the things we want and the activities cost money and time. The time we have, but the money is the hard part. In order to get money, we have to take on responsability. Taking on responsability means staying healthy, which requires bills and taxes. Thus all this stuff is around getting enough money to live how we want to.

At times we all have these pangs of "why do I have to do this" and I think your post hit home for many. So we all jumped to explain in support of your thoughts and to let you know you're not alone. Not to attack your rocking the boat.

Sorry. Didn't mean to sound offending or offended. Just wanted to put my .02 in.
