It Rots The Soul

The Trouble With Dope
The aspect that seems to be missing from modern debates is about the morality of Not Being a Complete Waste of Space. Whether it is the pothead or the drunk or anyone else who is merely occupying the world rather than living in it, it is entirely legitimate to criticise those who make no effort to pull their weight in the world or assume that society will be there to catch them when they fall.
Great article at spiked.
I had a doctor that particularly hated people smoking marijuana.  he said that booze, cocaine, heroin will leave the body in a relatively short time, however mj sticks for weeks.  He looked at usage purely from a health point of view.  

My thought for the day!

Words Without Deeds

My favourite loveable old duffer at Duff and Nonsense has a wonderful essay on the one's brother.
We've got the wrong one
Everytime I read about the one and the lies constantly spouted from that hole in his face I think of this song from My Fair Lady

so Mr.O, I say this to you:
Words! Words! Words! I'm so sick of words! 
I get words all day through;
First from him, now from you! Is that all you blighters can do? 
psst:  I know Julie Andrews sang it better on Broadway, but I do like the clip

I guess McCain and Palin kind of forced the WH hands.  hehe

Tit for Tat

lewd conduct
From what I have been reading the conduct alleged is far worse than anything I have heard about men's behaviour over my years in an office environment.  Personally, other than the odd colourful joke that was more embarrassment than harassment, I have never experienced this behaviour in the office.  Maybe it is that look I give.....
If it is true, may the book be thrown at all of them.  Women have been degrading men (and boys in the education system) for decades.  Reputations and careers have been ruined with the merest unproven hint.  If we are all created equal and in G-d's image, than we all should treat each other with dignity, at least common courtesy.

Liars, just Liars

all good things in nigeria are done by muslims?
How can any one take this crap seriously.  I could link to all the atrocities happening in Nigeria but I wouldn't want to deprive you of the fun of research!  But just in case one might be to lazy or uninformed, Christians are being slaughtered.  Damn Amish at it again I suppose
thanks to Blazing Cat Fur for the link

What Tyranny Looks Like

The Most Divisive Campaign - Sultan Knish
There is not a single Obama voter anywhere in the land who believes that another four years of him will make this country better. Not a single one from coast to coast. No, what they believe is that he will make the country a worse place for those people that they hate. That he will have four more years to sink their ideas deeper in the earth, regardless of how many families go hungry and how many fathers kill themselves because they can no longer take care of their families. What they believe is that Obama will grant their group more special privileges and the rest of the country can go to hell.

It Is Time For A Fantastic Light Show


Update:  I missed it.  Went to bed too early and woke up too late.  I did see a very bright crescent moon, Venus and Jupiter and that was lovely indeed.

Liars

“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.” 
 Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
