Episodes & Show Prep / Re: 2011-12-20
« on: December 22, 2011, 04:34:12 PM »
Loved (naturally enough!) the promotion of singing on the 12-20 show.  I looked for the Facebook discussions with those who were opposed to it (alternate points of view can be instructive, after all), but couldn't find them.  Can you tell me where I could get a look?

Also, I have a bunch of songs written so as to be easy for a crowd to pick up.  Try "Everybody Sing Freedom," from the Civil Rights days, which is just "Amen" with "Freedom" replacing the operative word.  A few of those, with just three or four "h'isters" to start them, can get the crowd going!

Well, I thought it was in enormously bad taste.  While it is annoying how many liberty activists are complete blockheads when it comes to understanding Lenny Bruce / Paul Krassner - style humor, this went overboard.  I might feel differently if not for repeated exposure to the "I'm not a man-hating feminist, bUUUUuuuuUUUtttT all men are rapists" crowd, but their perpetual usurpation of the moral high ground on the issue soured me on it permanently.  It was taboo to so much as smile when the topic was discussed at the other end of the room when it involved women, but when men were victims of it, it became subject for loud, high hilarity.  That was when I determined that so-called "feminism" had succeeded in reducing women to an inferior sex (a brave few, who never needed the theory because they had the practice, rise above that by ignoring it).  For those reasons, I refuse to indulge in the blame-the-victim mockery, and so, I think, should a radio program with the high ethical standards of FTL.

Lenny Bruce never made a funny joke in his life.

He was really more of a stand-up philosopher.  A lot of the laughter he received was the automatic titter that accompanied mention of words like "cocksucking" in those days (and somewhat less so in these)--though some was from the recognition of the forbidden truths he dared (eventually fatally) to utter.

I don't think you should go around asking anyone to "bare" children for you.
That could get everyone involved brought up on at least state, if not federal, charges.

And then he would really be "discrete"!

Saint Lenny had something to say on the topic:

Congrats on Catcher. It's an excellent book.

I'm stoked about it.  Should provide a nice weekend. 

I just re-read the saga of the Glass family over a weekend not long ago.  You might want to start at the beginning of that, with this brief piece:

Better hurry, before someone gives away the surprise . . .

It pretty much exemplifies many of the major faults in communism.  I've always seen it as an obvious attack on it.

"Exemplifies"?   It's a point-by-point allegory of the Russian Revolution.
And Orwell, though obviously despising totalitarianism, still purported to be a socialist himself.

Not as bad as the last one. However, we're going to see a suicide rate that resembles Johnson's FSP graph.

Now if all those suiciders would just take five or ten bureaucrats/politicians with them . . .

So there was this awesome drunk guy in the mall the other day.  Someone in Ruby Tuesday's called the cops on him, and they hauled him away to the drunk tank.  But he wasn't doing anything.  I mean, he was bumbling around and whatnot, but then he just sat down on a bench and stayed there.   :(

Ironic, considering the lyrics to that song . . .

I'm too much of a wuss to cause a scene. I just make sure I am in the bathroom when the music plays.

Standing or sitting . . . ?

I'm really pretty tired of the whole "you're not in it for liberty, you're in it for pot" argument. 

I've quite had it with the "I can read your mind, and your motives are malevolent" argument regardless of which direction it comes from.  Anyone who resorts to that tired old dodge has said more about his own evil motives than he can ever possibly surmise about mine.

I've often wondered, given a situation of being privy to some sort of plot or upcoming event--from terrorist attacks to poison in the water to space alien invasion--just how someone would go about spreading the word.  I can't imagine climbing on a horse and calling out "The ETs are coming!," and in today's political climate, possession of such sensitive information is more likely to get you locked up.

The Polling Pit / Re: Should there be a law?
« on: September 13, 2008, 08:21:09 PM »
Laws restricting politicians are the ones I'm likely to carp least loudly about.
I think just to run for office, a candidate should be required to pass a tough, graduate-school-level exam on history, economics, etc., and spend two months incognito in a maximum-security prison.  And any form of malfeasance in public office should be treated as an act of treason, with appropriate penalties.  I'm still making up my mind about the oath of poverty, chastity, and obedience . . .
