As the bad gets worse the good gets better.
This is the centre of the universe.
My tribe is gathered around me.
Behold me.
I AM.

Or...

As the bad gets worse, the good declines along with it.... a general, all-around lowering of standards or expectations.... kinda like Clint Eastwood in "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly'....

(He was 'better' than 'Bad', or 'Ugly', mainly because he was better with a gun...)

Or not.

as the right becomes center the left becomes right
Did you notice that? Like an epihany for me. It has been on my mind, in the back of mind. KD articulated it for me. Not sure how she meant it, maybe she meant that the left is becoming more correct these days? But I saw it as a swing from left to right in political opinion. The left is not sounding so good to me these days. But I have been visiting some strange websites, conspiracy theories about 9/11, Pearl Harbor, Jewish plots. I will be reading along and agreeing then something hits me that makes my jaw drop. Lincoln a 19th century Hitler, George C Marshall a communist, SENATOR JOSEPH MCCARTHY a hero, the Holocaust a hoax, sounds left to begin with then swing to the right of Franco.

True enough. And the definitely not so good appears to be fairly close to all right.

...which accounts for why we would consider paying $1.75 for a gallon of gas extremely cheap today.

yep i'm talking about lowering of standards. and its a big problem for the left...they have no new ideas, not only that but they seem to be being forced to the right because the right is now the middle where as it use to be considered the right if that makes any sence.

and though you have a better understanding of whats good by experienceing soemthing bad. i don't think peak experiences relate to this. i think if because something is bad is making you see something that was not so bad as great...thats not nessisarily something to be proud of.

its so fucking hot in the dorm rooms i think i'm going to die.
Blah!
