You might say why don't you just embrace regular Buddhism? Well like all major organized religions there are things I like and things I don't like. Plus if you've ever been to a Buddhist country you know how corporate it is. Just like all the rest.
So I'll tell you why I don't follow Buddhism. Basically Buddhist believe that life is pain and pain is caused by distractions and lets face it the distractions in life are what make it so great. So here are some of the basic principles and Tenets of my religion.
Distractions are not bad they are what make life worth living. Pot and Alcohol are not bad in moderation. I'm not a pot smoker but the hipocrasy surrounding it makes me sick. Over indulgence should be avoided but it happens. Sex is not bad. Even premarital sex. Who really wants a virgin? Worst sex ever. But we have to be smart about things. Babies are a good thing, unwanted and untimely babies are not so screw smart. I do not believe that abortion is the answer to unwanted pregnacies but I'm a man and I respect the right of women to make her own decisions. Being a pompous asshole is bad. Humility is the path to rightiousness. Respect for your world. This encompasses everything. Respect for your fellow man and woman, respect for your environment, nobody should shit where they eat, respect for animals, no animal should be tortured but they are tasty, and respect for yourself.
Question everything!!! Do not take somebody soley on there word. Ignorace is prepetuated by people believing what someone else tells them. This includes me, your preacher, your friends, and espcially your politicians.
Ignorace is the most deadly sin in Cynicalbuddhism. Knowledge is power and the first and most important tenet of Cynicalbuddhism is that You cannot undermine what you do not understand. Stupid people suck, in other words. The reason half the bad shit happens in this world is that people are ignorant to what is going on and people will take advantage of that. Ignorace kills it is not bliss.
Well that's enough ranting for now. Until next time.

If anyone sees this it'll be a miracle but since I have 3 sports card blogs and i've started to put my rants out on Collector's Crack I figured I'd start a new blog where i could rant about things that need to be ranted about or just a general vent or thought unrelated to sports or sports card collecting.
So my first rant is this new Stride gum. I was taken in by the commercials, even intrigued, I mean that's what they're there for. So recently when I was at the supermarket and looking for a pack a gum I decided to try it.
I will say this I haven't tried the other Shift flavors but Berry to Mint is terrible!!! I would say even disgusting. It literally almost made me want to vomit. Especially when the flavor shifts and mixes.
Stay tuned for further rants from the cynicalbuddha.
