we are a generation wasted
on waiting tables and failed get rich quick schemes
so starved for a revolution
that we accept the rebellion provided for us.
get out of your own head.
make each decision based on the information available.
not making a choice
is still a choice.
i move back to gboro in exactly 2 months.
i dont know if anyone caught steven colbert's performance as the closing act at the white house correspondants dinner, but it was fucking amazing.
a few quotes (mind you George Bush was sitting 10 feet to the right of him throughout):
"Mr. Snow, I don't know how you ever plan on replacing Scott McLellan, that man could say nothing like nobody."
"Reverend Jessie Jackson is a tough interview, he says what he wants, as loud as he wants, and as SLOW as he wants to say it. Seriously, talking to him is like boxing with a glacier. (amid laughter) Yeah, enjoy that similie folks, cause your grandkids won't know what a glacier is."
"Damn you liberal media, NOTHING is ever enough for you. You call for personnel changes in the White House, and they give it to you, and then you have the nerve to call it 'rearranging the deckchairs on the titanic." Well I call that bull. This administration is SOARING, not sinking. If anything, they're rearranging the deckchairs on the Hindenberg."
If you missed it I feel sorry for you, cause you cant find it online anymore because of "copyright infringements". But ask me and i'll send the video to you over AIM.
(1893-1946) Commander-in-Chief of the Luftwaffe, President of the Reichstag, Prime Minister of Prussia and, as Hitler's designated successor, the second man in the Third Reich.
"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
So i recently obtained this book written by Jon Stewart in 1998 called "Naked Pictures of Famous People", and it has had me laughing to tears all day.
Excerpt from chapter titled "The New Judaism"
(this chapter is on the past trials and tribulations of Jews and how his new amendments to the faith would solve all future problems"
" ...The Spanish Inquisition: Grand Inquisitor's Sophisticated Method of Interrogation
Inquisitor: Are you a Jew?
Inquisitor: Are you sure you're not a Jew?
Inquisitor: Oh well, sorry to trouble you. Would you like to stay for cake?
Jew: Is it chocolate? I'm allergic to chocolate.
Inquisitor: It's an out-of-this-world lemon pound cake.
Jew: Well, maybe just a nosh...
(the inquisitor smiles a sinister smile)
'Jews have a mascot?" you ask. No. This is a problem. Any new idea that expects to have legs in the marketplace needs a lovable mascot to represent and brand the product with the populace. Just ask Santa. How many Jews have felt the pain of trying to compete during the Christmas season by concocting a mascot, the personification of their own giftgiving holiday? A Hanukkah Harry, the swarthy man in charge of Jewish kids' presents who waits until the Christmas rush has ended to try and get some decent bargains, only to find the good toys gone.
The New Judaism takes a page from the playbook of successful ventures like Christianity and R.J. Reynolds with the unveiling of our new character, Jewey. Jewey's a cool, camel-like character (actually Joe Camel with some slight retooling) who brings laughter and joy to all the Kinder. Imagine a Bar Mitzvah boy's excitement at knowing he just became a man, and that Jewey's on his way with money and cigarettes. And here's the best part...He can fly!"
Basically, buy this book. You'll either hate it, or spend a whole day unable to breathe. Yep
