@blueveinedthrobber,
Ya can't ignore the facts, Bear.

Well, then again, history shows you can.

What's the difference between you and coldjoint? Y'all chastise him for avoiding the facts. You can't point me to a place where you discuss what you say you discuss, just not 24/7, and you expect that you should be believed.

@blueveinedthrobber,
Bear: do you actually think that you calling me disingenuous has some sort of meaning to anyone other than you?
/////////

It means something to Finn. You stole his modus operandi.

@blueveinedthrobber,
It is hard to reach Americans regarding America. It’s not a place so much as a mindset. For myself, I got out of that mindset quite by accident, but it also took some effort. When confronted by contradictions that made me uncomfortable, I did not stuff them away and ignore them.

If life is a waste of time and time is a waste of life, lets all get wasted and have the time of our lives.

“Don't bother to argue anything on the Internet. And I mean, ANYTHING.... The most innocuous, innocent, harmless, basic topics will be misconstrued by people trying to deconstruct things down to the sub-atomic level and entirely miss the point.....”

We Americans are not usually thought to be a submissive people, but of course we are. Why else would we allow our country to be destroyed? Why else would we be rewarding its destroyers? Why else would we all — by proxies we have given to greedy corporations and corrupt politicians — be participating in its destruction? Most of us are still too sane to piss in our own cistern, but we allow others to do so and we reward them for it. We reward them so well, in fact, that those who piss in our cistern are wealthier than the rest of us.

How do we submit? By not being radical enough. Or by not being thorough enough, which is the same thing.
Wendell Berry

@blueveinedthrobber,
American culture is not about experiencing our shame, it's about denying it. It's been that way our whole history.

@Olivier5,
Pierre Dac also said: "Certain anal ways are even more impenetrable than the ways of the Lord."

Not sure that translates...

“I realized these were all the snapshots which our children would look at someday with wonder, thinking their parents had lived smooth, well-ordered lives and got up in the morning to walk proudly on the sidewalks of life, never dreaming the raggedy madness and riot of our actual lives, our actual night, the hell of it, the senseless emptiness.”

@edgarblythe,
What a cheap shot ed. What a ridiculous thing to write and what a self-pitying resignation its narcissism plumbs the depths of.

Dreadful in the literal sense.

“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”
