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

Wear It With Pride

That's my theory. We are not fighting a "war on terror." You can't fight a means, a concept, an abstract. But we are at war, or I should say we have been invaded by the Massive Attack of Shabbiness. Just about everything is made in China, and is a piece of crap. The admissions standards at private universities are lower than ever (just ask former Duke President Nan Kohane, who confided in one of her deans, that the freshman class gets dumber and dumber every year). Look around you, stuff is crap. Even things that are supposed to be top of the line are made to be broken (not that this is a new concept; just ask anybody who bought a Colicovision back in the '80s).

And of course our presidential candidates are shabby. Let's look at Barack Obama, the liberal democratic poster boy. Everyone is giving him money and looking to him to save the country. Wake up idiots. The guy gave an impassioned speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. And? Tell me one thing Obama stands for, tell me one plank in his platform that is not a platitude. You can't. I went to his website and looked at his issue position statements. There is not one, not one idea, not one answer, not one plan. Platitudes only. He's the little wooden boy who wanted to be real. He's vapor. He's wasting everyone's time.
