The god is Comus. His wish is our command.

“The common mistake that bullies make is assuming that because someone is nice that he or she is weak. Those traits have nothing to do with each other. In fact, it takes considerable strength and character to be a good person.”

@tontoiam,
hi

“I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody is going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody is going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except you, and nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up your dreams.”
- Barry Manilow

That describes the USA in a nutshell, Vonny. Good find!

Can you explain to me why the UK helps the US pick on the poor and innocent? One would think y'all had more innards.
