I just read something yesterday from some quote about being granted the pain of bein alive. The way I saw it was, What's the use of being alive if we aren't learning anything? How can we learn if we don't have pain?

what i was trying to get at was doesn't matter how much pain you go through be thankful that you are alive and to stop wallowing in your own misery.

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

""something for you all to ponder.

Examine pain, in order to note the similarities and differences to being alive?
Examine being alive, in order to note the similarities and differences to pain?

Let us say for this, that penalty is pain, pain is penalty?

Being alive, is a result of being born?
Say being born is a punishment that is imposed on a wrongdoer by statute or judicial decision
Death being the penalty imposed later if you die?

haha, forget it :P

"The penalty of living, is the pain of penalty"
