Quote of the Day

"The best kind of partying is the kind you can’t remember."

"The 1972 tour was known by other names – the Cocaine and Tequila Sunrise tour or the STP, Stones Touring Party. It was the beginning of the booking of whole hotel floors, with no one else allowed up, so that some of us – like me – could get privacy and security. It was the only way we could have a degree of certainty that when we decided to party, we could control the situation or at least get some warning if there was trouble."
Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones in his biography "Life".

Chimpanzees on LSD

Public hearings are often a formality, a minor road bump. Plenty of earnest folks show up to question the impact of a proposed subdivision or shopping mall upon their neighborhoods and lives, and the politicians pretend to listen.

By that point, though, the deal is already sealed, the necessary majority of votes secured.

This cynical charade has been going on since the beginning of statehood. It's the reason so many Florida cities look like they were planned by chimpanzees on LSD.

Comment of the Day

From Think Progress:

InvictusCorruptus 10/13/2010 05:01 PM

Everything we've ever been taught to trust and believe in as children was all part of a grand illusion perpetrated by the powers that be in order to control the peasants from uprising.

We have systematically been beaten into submission, becoming apathetic little sheep, ignoring the massive corruption going on behind the scenes by the rich and the powerful, all at the detriment of our country and society.

The advent of new technology will one day be looked upon as a plague by future civilizations. Dehumanizing, dysfunctional, impersonal, divisive, deceptive, destructive. Human kind with all of it's new gizmos and gadgets, from ipods, to blackberry's to PlayStations, we have become a nation of drones, trolls and zombies. lacking empathy or tolerance for others, while with the popularity of fixed news and am talk radio, we have built our barriers, chosen our sides and battle with one another over issues that are tossed out there by politicians, special interest groups and political pundits, issues meant only to further anger and divide the people of this nation and to breed more hatred for others.

Meanwhile while we are battling amongst one another, the rich and powerful become richer and more powerful. The slightest legislation meant to help the poor and the sick, that in a just society would be a no brainer, becomes an all out war carried via the media.

The game is over, the have mores and have a lot more have won. They have conquered we the peasants, the have nots of the world, who if they are lucky to have a job, work their asses off just to survive these days. Yet we still pick our sides, become more divided, playing right into the hands of those pulling all of the strings. Nothing is going to change in this country until the peasants have an uprising. Hoping that one party or the other party will come to their senses is an exercise of futility.

Bad Joke of the Day

A cowboy appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.

"Have you ever done anything of particular merit?" St. Peter asked.

"Well, I can think of one thing", the cowboy offered.

"On a trip to the Black Hills out in South Dakota, I came upon a gang of bikers who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen. So, I approached the largest and most tattooed biker and smacked him in the face, kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring, and threw it on the ground. I yelled; Now, back off or I'll kick the s - - t out of all of you!"

St. Peter was impressed, "When did this happen?"

"Couple minutes ago."
