life is short...

Human life is truly a short affair. It is better to live doing the things that you like. It is foolish to live within this dream of a world seeing unpleasantness and doing only things that you do not like. But it is important never to tell this to young people as it is something that would be harmful if incorrectly understood.
Personally, I like to sleep. And I intend to appropriately confine myself more and more to my living quarters and pass my life away sleeping.

You said it chief. Fustercluck after fustercluck, and why should we even give a shit anymore? Supposedly this is where we bow our heads like the bovine Americans we are, tune the world out, and focus on our own petty little problems.

Fuck it, let me try: I can't have alcohol for a longass time. That's bullshit, life isn't fair. Who is Nader? Who cares? Me. Me. All the time. Me.

What, that president guy fed the deficit with MORE deficit? Whatever, Greek to me. Survivor is on and Hot Pockets are bubbling with fake-cheese goodness in the microwave.

Fuck yeah, I am a true American.

The central flaw in democracy is that those attracted to positions of power are those whom we would least like to fill them.

I have a neighbor who is honest as the day is long. He goes shopping for the elderly spinsters in the building. He washes everyone's cars on a sunny day. I'd vote for him in a minute, but he's too busy being a great guy to run for office. He has no political ambitions.

Beware those with political ambitions. Beware the panderers. Beware those who rely on lineage and money to get to a position of power. Hell, you're right. Beware the candidate. The spokesman for the issue of the week. The Pepsodent Smile. The sharp suit. The packaged, processed, and well schooled, sharp dressed man.

I'd rather do government by referrendum, but then I listen to some of my hick neighbors and I know that - deep in my heart - I want to do nothing to empower them with their ignorance their bigotry their mindless patriotism.

My name is Diane Smith and I am an American.

yeah, back in the founding fathers' days, we had more of an aristocracy than a mocracy. one of our biggest problems is the sick little dance that goes on between for-profit corporate mass media and for-profit political candidates, who raise money from corporations to place commercials with the media corporations. that, and the primary system. and megalomaniacs trapped in an infantile stage of development.
