"...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

Shorter Alan Dershowitz: "...oh my god, oh my god, oh my fucking god, those Egyptian fucks are going to make it harder for my pimp daddies in Israel to pretend that the fascist race state is actually democratic, and what the fuck, how am I going to get pretty little actresses to intern for me if I have to explain Israel in everyday, ordinary, human terms because there are no Arab despots left to provide cover for the evil that we do?!...oh god, oh god, oh god, the Muslim Brotherhood is out on the streets now with ordinary Egyptians, while union members and the rump of the labor movement long crushed by US and Israeli funded and trained SAVAK style cops pronounce a general strike and the Suez and the factories grind to a stop!...oh god, oh god, oh god! why the fuck won't those fucking soldiers shoot already?!..."

Shorter Jack Crow: Chickens, meet roost, fuckers. Suck on it.
