Want a better world? Make it. Want to make a change, then give change.

It's gotten to the point where even the word "politics" brings on instant fatigue and street. I don't know if I'm supposed to engage and discuss things with people, put things on my own site or stay the hell away from it all.

I think the key to politics, in general, is to get mad enough to do something, then slowly back away, because there's no point in getting madder. This is where my idea of a modified "cuss jar" comes into play. It's simple. When you see someone say something you want to respond to, put a quarter in a jar instead. When you fill up the jar, donate it to something that makes a difference. Heck, donate it back to yourself as a reward for not wasting time engaging with knuckleheads.

Give it a try and see if your stress level doesn't go down.
