Hello, My name is James. I am writing you this letter to let you know about my problem. see, the problem is not physical nor emotional. more a mental. but it is not because i am a mental case, it is a problem i have with mentality. people have the wrong mentality in life.

do you know what it feels like to walk down the street with everything you own in a plastic bag? no, you don't. you sit at home with all your \"emo\" friends and screenbuddies. life is a luxury to you pricks. you have no idea what problems people have. i for one dislike Rats, like George Orwell. you probably have some sort of artificial fear, designed exclusively for your manifesto. which is of course, to prove you're hardcore, to prove you're worth it!

but you already are, but you think you need to have people tell you that you're hardcore or awesome. the root of the problem?

EDUCATION! We have the wrong attitude. it's all about being better than \"chad\" from down the road with the hair that goes over his eyes and his tight jeans, isn't? it's all about vampires and how every other american kid who isn't a total dickhead thinks he's a vampire.

Still confused?

Why are you still reading then? You don't understand about 90% of the things i'm saying, but then thats why i'm saying them.

apreciate what you have, before you know it, the racists, fascists, communists, socialists militants and nazi's come to kill our democratic peers, and you WILL find out what it feels like to walk down the road with everything you own in a plastic bag.

Goodbye, My Name was James.
