Peanut Gallery (Different kinda rant)

Instead of compiling a list of things that offend me (a la DFO here), I drew up a different kind of list, in random order. I don't care about red and blue states, I am searching for a state of grace.

I am shamed by lies.
I am shamed by greed.
I am shamed by theft.
I am shamed by anger.
I am shamed by hate.
I am shamed by violence.
I am shamed by killing.
I am shamed by war.
I am shamed by apathy.
I am shamed by stupidity.
I am shamed by ignorance.
I am shamed by racism.
I am shamed by starvation.
I am shamed by disease
I am shamed by pollution.
I am shamed by people who know more about Desperate Housewives than the Sudan.
I am shamed by people who don’t listen.
I am shamed by inconsiderate people.
I am shamed by people who think only of themselves.
I am shamed by instant gratification.
I am shamed by curse words.
I am shamed by sloth.
I am shamed by laziness.
I am shamed by homeless people.
I am shamed by soldiers who are lose their limbs and then have trouble getting their benefits.
I am shamed by the rich getting richer.
I am shamed by the poor getting poorer.
I am shamed by addiction.
I am shamed by rudeness.
I am shamed by anybody that hurts a child.
I am shamed by people who throw cigarettes out their cars.
I am shamed by people who use Allah's name to murder 3,000 people on 9/11.
I am shamed by people who use Christianity as a political club.
I am shamed by people who promise to be more loving once the Christmas trees and lights go up, but go back to their selfish ways once the lights and ornaments are in the attic.

DFO: I couldn't resist pulling this one out front. Good job, Lennon Fan.
