I listen to music like System of a Down and Rage Agaisnt The Machine, because I don't like the government or being told what to do. Then I get upset with my daughter when she doesn't do what I tell her.
Contradiction In Reality

He never said hello because they never introduced themselves—not once!

When you go out with make-up they call you fake. ("We prefer natural beauty.")
