Trump on Berkeley riots submitted by oiseaulibre to politics

NO FEDERAL FUNDS? I love it.

I hope he makes an example out of U.C. Berkley. Some university departments are brainwashing the youth into acting like fucking terrorists and they need to be held accountable.

Degenerate or Subhuman. If I had to pick a conventional one, it'd be "retard".

I make myself laugh all the fucking time. I giggle to myself in public and I get into these long-winded arguments or fictional reenactments while I'm driving. Sometimes I cannot tell a joke because I just make myself laugh. I think I'm the funniest guy ever.

As reductionist as it sounds, I ultimately see myself as a biological machine. When I feel good, it's because of neurochemistry and whatever other crap I don't feel like making up; you know what I mean. So, I think about what sort of input does my brain need to make me feel good and happy? It sounds autistic, but I've lost the ability to anthropomorphize years ago.

You say that you require a "purpose". I don't think there is an innate purpose to human existence (at least what fictional stories sell us), so the statement is at best half-true. You want to strive past the mediocrity of the world. I think all of this has a common theme. Think back in the hunter-gatherer days. These sort of first-world problems are not really all there in simple days. We were pretty happy back then because we don't actually need a lot to be happy.

I think you need a tribe of sorts. People and a community that you feel good contributing and accomplishing tasks together. I don't see how some San Fransisco boy wanting to do some gay activist shit can be more fulfilled than a caveman bringing back the meat for his woman and kids.

Sometimes you have to be more reductionist, think about what fundamentally drives people to do things. Your sense of purpose can be derived from basic human needs.

I don't think I have R- blood, I've been told I have O+

Besides, it was some shitty walk-in doctor that got really uncomfortable when I started crying that prescribed me Citalopram.

I do not have any physical conditions that have depression as a symptom. My case is purely psychological, rooted in past events and perceptions of myself and the world.
