"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

Petty Squabbles

I guess a certain blogger needs occasional reminding that an attempt at an inversion - and one which is admittedly undertaken with a decent chance of failure in mind - is not the same thing as a "rehabilitation."

Wait, Jack, sorry for being dense, but I don't fully get it.

Are you saying, "I took a job, but I still hate that shit"?

Or are you talking about something else?

If the former, then, yeah, I fully get you! That's the contradiction in this whole awful economy and the position the OWS people are forced into -- namely: they have to fight in order to be granted the very jobs that were never truly fulfilling in the first place...

Nah, Pharrell. It's just a note to a blogger who disabled comments, but who likes to misrepresent a nearly two year old post of mine.

Oh I see...ha! My guess was a little off, then...
