If this is the price for small government then you disgust me. I wonder if the libertarians have gone quiet because they don't want to admit they've done anything wrong or real life just got in the way.
Excuse the typos. On the phone
Nice little Rant there Sardia.
Real Life. Real Life, just, got in 'the way'
Real Life is hard. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_Barnett
Dr. Barnett died in 1979. That is a long time ago.
Sometimes when other people do something that looks stupid or clumsy I say, "What were you thinking?"
Sometimes when I do something that looks stupid or clumsy I can be asked, "What were you thinking?"
I memorized something Dr. Barnett wrote. Page 8. At the top; I think.
He wrote, "Mind may yet guide Man's destiny in a capricious universe."
The universe may be capricious. It is not good to have Statesmen that are as capricious as 3-4 year old girls.
It may be time for the people of the US to say, "Fill this cup."
You are fussing about Money. Correct?
Fill the cup. Did you notice anything?The bottom of the cup fills, First.
Does that seem obvious to you? good.
Now; Explain it to them.
How does a people enforce their will?
What is 'The Will
' of The People?
Have you met The People?!?
I am angry at the TEA Baggers.
I spoke with one during the daylight hours, today.
If he represents his people then I am angry at all of them.
If he stands alone then I am angry at him.
He was a belergent person; Almost determined.
His bumper sticker said, "The president does not apologize for My Nation."
Or; Something to that effect. The conversation got around to, "Who does apologize for you?"
He was so creepy. He was dirty. I could smell him. He was full of himself. -To be fair who should he be full of if not himself?-
Was that the smell? I don't think so.
It was, just, dirty. I am not proud of these TEA Baggers.
They are ready for the UnCivil Civil War. That man is ready.
That man has a head start on many of us. He lives like there are no public services, NOW!
When do you think The People will miss their Government?
The SS checks need to keep going out. That is life or death for many people.
No SS check needs to be any larger or smaller than any other SS check.
When they go out they go out All The Same!
What number? I don't know; What do you think?
It is imaginary money, after all. Do we want to be overly generous or Punitive? See?!
It would be easy to be punitive. It is just as easy to be generous and fair. Let Level Heads work out a Number.
I get angry and want to be mean. It is not good to be mean; Even when they Have It Coming!
The other stuff is Fluff. Right? Who needs a bunch of Fancy Pants engineers?
Who needs? What do the TEA Baggers complain about? Road Work?
They say, I have heard them say: Nothing in this country was ever built right, anyway. Not anything The da - da - da -Government had any part in!
I forget. It is like a Religion War. I believe he should take a bath he thinks I should go fuck myself.
They are a powerful Lobby. What do they want? How can that be given to them without harming Innocent OnLickers?
Is this what War is really like? I had heard. Some people say it is boring.
Nothing. Days and days with Nothing happening. Then some more Nothing.
Some people say it is Hell. People turn on one another. Trust is precious, indeed.
The Milk of Human Kindness is like the Milk of a Cow.
It dries up under stressful conditions.
How else is this like a War?
People are armed. (check)
The guys in uniform are in it for their own gain. (check)
The roads are darned good for a War. That was Truman's idea.
I am not sure he thought of it. He seemed to think it was brilliant. It was. It is?
We have darned Good Roads.
Some of our bridges are nice, too.
Ech. Tomorrow will be The Same Shit; Different Day.
No Change is what The TEA Baggers and their TV OverLords want.
They are a powerful Lobby. If No Change is what they want, that is what the rest of us will get.
Excuse me. I think I did hyperbole. (shrug)
The mountain of words we write each day will cover what I wrote.
I Rant, too. We are do. These are difficult times for People.
The Cats and Dogs are doing FINE! Even on the internet.
The internet gets to stay? Will we have internet?
Will Google Balloons float over and let us chat to our favorite forums?
Will it be fun? Will it be a slice of Hell?
Yes. and; Yes.
The cynics will tell you. If we do we are Damned. If we don't we are Damned.
I am not a we. I am, just, a me.
There is electricity and water and the internet.
I don't see any signs of distress in my Nation from an ongoing Civil War.
We are, just, overreacting. Who Wants to talk to Bonner?
(rasies hand and waves it a little.) I do.
I am still angry.
When you see Bonner, ask him about that "Drown it in a BathTub." remark.
It is not a simple off handed remark. It is a slogan. It is a TEA Bagger slogan.
I would like to allow them the opportunity. He is one good place to start. It is almost Halloween.
An Oak Barrel is almost the same size as a BathTub.
This one man and his friends represent Da Govnmt.
Will you talk to him? Will he let you?
Get back to us.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
by mr. Oscar Wilde.
Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
