"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

Learn It

Wealthy black guy (starred in the same baseball movie, and in a different movie about Vietnam), who makes movies about a martial arts loner against the world, neglects Uncle's portion of the Empire bill, gets three years in the custody of the federales:

Only problem I see here is that the white guy should be going to a state pen.

Not that that isn't a problem. But $38M and no taxes? Not okay. Not your point, I know. But not okay.

Jack Crow said...

Yeah, Landru - the difference is definitely state versus federal charges.

Use every man after his desert, and who should escape whipping?

The obvious answer is that the judge really didn't like Blade 3.

Don't forget rapper Method Man. He learned what happened when you fuck with the government's cheddar.

...but we have The First Black POTUS!

...and yet, this is how America really works, Symbolic Post-Racist President or not.

Betting that Monsieur le Dickster Cheney, he of the present corpse-like presentation, has swiped more of Uncle Sam's dough-nuts than Blade's tax arrearages times one million.

Halliburton did so well under Bush-Cheney. All those no-compete contracts. The finest theft in the world.
