It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Thank Goodness!

At last we know the name of Anna Nicole's baby's daddy...the man who undoubtedly will be responsible for her years and years of drug addiction and therapy. I think his name is something Shithead. Now would somebody please tell me why we give a shit? Really, someone please tell me. I mean, I know there isn't anything pressing going on in the world so we have time to put into this, but really. A drug addict with no acting ability is dead. Drug addicts die every day, many of them in a world of filth and pestulance that most of us cannot relate to at all. No one's covering their deaths. I suppose if they were gold diggers with big tits who couldn't string two sentences together then maybe we'd hear something (some undoubtedly are, but they weren't screwing any producers (well maybe they were, they just weren't the type that get any media exposure). Personally I'd like to thank all the major media outlets for covering this VERY important story because otherwise I'd only have to ignore George Bush's delusional rantings. CNN, I hope you sent Wolf Blitzer to cover this because quite frankly you're wasting his ineptitude getting him to cover world events with his nonsensical rantings. This is more his speed. And call me when Geraldo Rivera takes us in search of Nicole's brain (here's a clue Gerald, it's in Al Capone's vault you miserable waste of air).

Speaking of it me, or is it about time that the world finally figured out that Don Imus is a fuck faced douche bag who doesn't know a hawk from a handsaw? This weed has been posing as someone people actually give a shit about for too long. Glad John (the butt kissing rebel without applause) McCain is still planning to do his show...we thought you were losing your cutting edge John--thanks for setting us straight).

So what's the solution Shtuey? You just keep bitching but you don't tell us what the answer is.

Fair's fair. The answer is so utterly simple, you won't believe it. Music. Music is the answer. Music has been at the center of every important cultural revolution of the 20th century. Think about it. The Blues spread throughout America with the Black exodus of the South. Jazz soared into the mainstream during prohibition and the labor movements of the early 20th century. The Beatles coming to America in 1964; the San Francisco sound that fueled the psychedellic revolution (arguably the single greatest socio/cultural revolution of the past 100 years). Music people. Go out and make it, listen to it, go see it live. It doesn't even have to be rock. Go to a performance of your local orchestra, choir, or philharmonic. I guarantee you will walk away feeling better, inspired, less weary. Really, you will. I'm not kidding. That's how we're gonna bring peace to Israel, and get the Palestinians to reject the culture of violence. Stop depending on the crooked politicians and let the musicians sort it out. Arab and Israeli musicians record and perform together all the time, and no one gets blown up. There are even groups made up of Palestinians and Israelis, and guess what? No fatalities. Put the musicians in charge and there will be peace, and rock.
