Moaning Meme

Julie at Thinking About tagged me for this meme, one for complaining a bit. Nice idea, huh?

5 people who will be annoyed you tagged them.

• Gawilli at Back in The Day
• Naomi at Little Red Hen
• Kate at Hugging Aspens
• Ginnie at Goldendaze Ginnie
• Joy at Joy of Six

4 things that should go into room 101 and be removed from the face of the earth.

• George W. Bush
• Dick Cheney
• Saying cruel things to people because "they need to know"
• Crony capitalism

3 things people do that make you want to shake them violently.

• Mistreat children in any way.
• Believe that they earned all of their good fortune and people without their advantages are lazy.
• People who have been insulated from problems by their race and/or social class, giving out prescriptions for social ills that attribute them to individuals and start with "all you have to do to solve this problem is. . ." (Like "Just say no")

2 things you find yourself moaning about.

• How long it is taking me to recover from the combination of unrelated surgery and injury that knocked me for a loop these last couple of years.
• The destructive path of the Cheney/Bush administration, which seems bound to send our Constitution down the shredder and turn the republic created by our founders into the Evil Empire.

1 thing the above answers tell you about yourself.

• Although there are a lot of things I don't know, I'm confident I sure as hell know more than the idiots running the asylum.

• Link to the original meme at so people know what it’s all about!
• Be as honest as possible. This is about letting people get to know the real you!
• Try not to insult anyone - unless they really deserve it or are very, very ugly!
• Post these rules at the end of every meme

"Believe that they earned all of their good fortune and people without their advantages are lazy."

I despise that attitude. I encountered it quite often when in college and surrounded by rich kids with all the connections and comforts to do well. These kids never understood that you can do everything right and still not succeed at things. Not because you were lazy, but because sometimes too many things are stacked against you. Still makes my blood boil.

I have not forgotten this, but am formulating my responses. The questions are very thought provoking.
