If you pay enough attention to your surroundings and the people around you, you will find one of those: a scapegoat. The weather is horrendous; therefore it is someone's fault.The price of bread went up, it is also attributed to the person who caused the bad weather. The price of gas went up so, in… Continue reading The Scapegoat
Before anyone of you get some kinky ideas... No... not in that context! My previous post was about filters, this one is the opposite. I put my words through filters before saying them (self censorship if you prefer); the gag refers to the words I want to get out... those rebel words I want to… Continue reading The Gag
