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

With Friends Like This, Who Needs Enemies?

I had a long and substantive chat with an Obama staffer over the weekend.  This is someone who came from out of state to spend the summer campaigning for Super Ego.  I asked him to justify Panders' recent batch of flip flop waffalo pancakes.  He said he's very disappointed in the FISA decision, and has been lobbying him on his website.  He hopes he changes his mind.  I'm really sure that will happen, the narrator said with incredulity.  

His final analysis of his candidate at the end of our talk was, "He's not a perfect candidate, but he's the best chance we've got."

That's it?  That's the sum game for Pampers supporters?  He's not perfect, but he's the best chance we've got?  In how many ways can I say, "Fuck you!"

Hillary Clinton got kicked to the curb for that?  If you thought I was pissed off before, you ain't seen nothin' yet!

Shtuey,

Hey, watch your blood pressure. I would be mortified if anything happened to you and your scintillating blog. I know I am selfish, but I would not have my laugh my a** off moment each day.

I think I can honestly empathize with you after a conversation I had with my brother about 6 weeks ago. He too is a koolaid drinker (I thought he was smarter than that), and he can't name one thing that Barkety-bark has done, and is convinced that America is willing to elect a black man before a woman...AND the theft of the delegates was OKAY with him because it broke for his candidate.

Needless to say, he isn't listening to me anymore or accepting my emails. I have been very tempted to leave a message on his facebook asking him how he feels about FISA...but I'm a tad more mature than that.

Hele On!!

Preach it, shtuey! I'm with you all the way.

And I'm delighted to have found your blog via Logistics Monster. I've been wondering where you went after the implosion on the Taylor Marsh site. I'm bookmarking your site.
