Democracy? meh..

a form of governing where every common person in their country has a say..

sounds cool but who said that’s all there is to it..nah that’s what we’re told.. there are so many wrong things with this concept than known..

to make things easier, let’s take the states as an example n see how flawed that concept. to start, in a democratic state the majority rules. but what makes it logical that most of the inhabitants of a country know what’s best for them n their country?

didn’t the majority rallied behind its government n supported it to wage a war in Vietnam then after seeing how bad things could get they decided they didn’t speak well?
wasn’t it the majority who pushed for a war in Iraq n now the majority is asking for a quick victory or a retreat n think this war they supported at start is useless?

would you still believe that what the majority agrees on is what’s best for them?

every four years the american people get ready to head to the election boxes to choose the candidate they want to be a president.. who did the majority decided to pick as president 8 years ago? yea you got it! n by the end of those four years the majority just decided what an awful president he is. yet, didn’t the majority elect him for a second term? n yes you guessed it! after four other years they decided..meh his policy destroyed America. he’s leaving the office in 40 days or so leaving behind a bad economy, an army troubled in Iraq.. in a month the americans are going to elect a new president regardless who he will be, wait more 4 years n the majority will be upset cuz of the way he’s running things n they’ll head again back to elect n it goes on n on.. basically what the majority think is good for them cant be true all the time, thus there gotta some authority watching over stuff n correcting whatever strays..

im not gonna get into what effect the media has n what role it plays in misleading the majority to think the wrong way they do.. im gonna stick with discussing how flawed democracy as the one form n the only form of a government allowed to exist without leaving space for another type of governing to co-exist..

most people don’t know what’s best for them, they’re basically fed what they should be thinking n acting like.. its pathetic.

imagine the entire world ruled under such an incomplete flawed form of ruling..n don’t think the states is the only state suffering, take a look at the others. it may not be as apparent but its there..yes people should have a say in what they want their future to be like..

but don’t you forget, among people you’ve many uneducated foolish n misled people who unfortunately form a majority that outweighs this educated and aware minority..

the media gets uneducated people to stop working their minds n just feed on what they provide, most people don’t care n others just look one side n neglect more important ones only cuz it’s not of a concern to him.. it’s messed up!

to sum things up, most of the time the majority gets lost n when they wake up n realize what they’ve gotten themselves into, it’s too late.

im no politician n have no idea how things can be solved but from where im looking, if the United States dropped voting of the people n only kept the congress to decide even who deserve te presidency is really good n much better.

the congress has representatives of the people, n no people got no say who’s selected. he must be educated n knows what hes doing. those educated people should lead the country, vote on bills etc. they know better. what the heck a common guy on the streets know about running a country other than the lies he’s being told in every presidential campaign that goes with the wind once the candidate secures the office?? god! those americans can’t even show you where Iraq in on a map! what the heck do they know about politics!

democracy? huh ya, right…it’s just so flawed!

summer comes to an end

it’s monday, last week of summer session, day of my finals n the day where the summer journey finally comes to an end!

my gosh, 8 weeks stuck with 2 courses n only 2 close friends n some guys here n there i barely see twice a week.. too boring compared with a regular semester, but yea my primary goal is accomplished n im happier with myself than i was few months ago..

a 40-day vacation is what i need now, im so excited to board the plane n fly back home, even tho last year’s summer was wayyyy better but we had fun this summer too, from goin to the beach to riding horses it was fun. well, bara is the one who did the last one :p to be honest it seems gay to me lol gettin on a naked male being’s back n going wooooo thats quite gay :p guess i’ll wait some time till i ride one..

we might go on a roadtrip to Riyadh if everything went the way its supposed to, n it is so far going well..it’ll fun n the last thing we do this summer before leaving home n gosh im so excited!

even tho this summer was short on awesomeness lol it was quite a victory for me, it was good in terms of bonding with people, there are only a few this summer n i could get closer to some. i have to start packin to stuff it all in the trunk of my car since im sending the car tomorrow, my mood is really so good this week, lots of stuff waiting to happen n many changes, god i hate routine..

well here’s my sixth semester in colloge almost over n the seventh wont be easy at all, i need to work twice as hard to accomplish what i have in mind.. anyhow till that time comes i’ve got over a month to enjoy n relax :o)

buh bye studyin! hello fun!

summer

been a while since my last post..

i sleep +10 hours a day, i spend most of my day relaxing and i might have put on a little weight..summer sucks

anyway, whinning is never good so i decided to take matters in hand n try to find something cool to do.. i read a book, i played video games, went out, played billiard,bowling, ran n walked till i couldn’t walk anymore n im still feelin pretty bored n useless..

finals coming up in 5 days then i get to go home n that isn’t any better, lots of stuff are waitin over there for me to be done but at least i wont be sittin on my ass doing nothing.. oh since i mentioned finals, my last exams results are back n i scored full marks in both courses im taking.. im surprised, it feels great.

seems like no traveling this summer, i’d be probably spending the rest of the vacation learning german, playin online, surfing the net, working on the relationships i have in my life n nothing more..

i hate routine, i want today to be something, to be special but it’s hard to think of something fun to do right now.. most likely i’ll go take a shower, hang out with some friends who are bored as well, drop by the laundry, have dinner n hit the sack… aah summer !!

A pity….!

a lying friend, an illusive past, a new person coming in to my life and crazy relatives… just wow!!

it’s so not good to live 3 years chasing something n later on find out it’s all been for nothing! nothing is all i get…

why do people lie? why do people hate? why do people suck!!! i thank god for the family i have n some of the friends i have who are damn great if it wasn’t for them i would’ve lost it long time ago..

interacting with people means gettin hurt at some point, yet nobody can live without interactin with one another.. humans having feelings is a curse n a blessing, with no feelings there wont be hatred, wrath, anger etc. still humans are nothing without feelings….

at some point you cease to believe in stuff n start doubting everything around.. cease to understand n realize what’s the meaning of life.. we live decades full of pain..
when we’re young we see everything colorful and beautiful, charming n adorable… but we grow up..we eventually get into a new world where good ideals are unacceptable, makes us strangers n render us stupid n useless.. where good manners can get us to nowhere as everyone around is doin ‘what it takes’ to secure a position or achieve somethn..where we cant get to where we wanna be till we’ve sacrificed every good thing we believed in n have been raised to hang on to for dear life.. as time passes a voice inside wakes us up, n we start to realize how much we’ve changed n strayed.. we choose to ignore this voice n keep on going.. we reach a place where nothing makes sense..where everything loses its meaning.. n where we just fight for survival.. once we’re totally consumed we’re thrown away n replaced with others, fresh blood n can get the job done.. we survived..done fightin..its as good as we can ever get.. but the stuff we lost fightin all the way never comes back..n the stuff we gained remains there for eternity till we’re buried..none of what mom told us to keep n never lose is still there!…..
we have babies..we start teaching them all those same good manners n good ideals to hang on to n never let go of..ha what an irony..they end up taking the same cycle we’ve been in once..despite our cries n shouts of correction..after they finish their cycle..they have kids who take over…

what a pity…!

have you ever stopped for a moment to wonder… janitors, soldiers, salesperson, homeless person, cops, students, kings n presidents etc… weren’t we all kids? didn’t we love the same stuff n fight for ’em? weren’t we all taught the same perfect ideals? how on earth did we end up this way? life just makes us this way, simply there has to be a janitor n a cop n a king..we can’t all be the same!

do you think humanity is a civilized race? do you think because we have all those skyscrapers n major cities that we’re civilized? if your answer is yes then let me leave you with a thought..

take away those machines people use to call 911, 999 or whatever your emergency number is, take away authorities, take away juridical systems.. strike fear into people’s life n see how they fight like animals for survival..

Jeddah Legend

for the guys who have no idea what is.. i dont think i can call it a band, just a saudi guy who was studyin in the states n was so influenced with the black culture there n came back to saudi arabia n managed to record an album..

i usually hate this kinda music and when i heard about him i was like ” oooooooh come on another one tryin to imitate what he saw in there” but when the album was released days ago i was actually amazed..first a damn great accent, second the suitable voice n the right pitch for this kind of music n finally good lyrics

for sure , as with many other albums out there, not every song is an absolute win, two songs of my favorites are mother and jewels.

overall the album is fine and much better than i thought, so if you’ve already made your judgement before takin some time to listen to it, i suggest you give it a chance :o)
