Obama might actually be the Antichrist.
The Lightworker-in-Chief article makes me uncomfortable.
Oh shit, those links were real.
Boys, let's settle this like men. With swords.

There are a lot of things that could be done better, and that's a reason to support them, not to discount them (a statement which I might be unconsciously regurgitating from someone up-thread). In my teensy tiny experience I've recognized a few barriers formed ahead of the Augusta party due to what appears to me to be partially faulty reasoning, and another small fraction resulting from the imbalanced distribution of tasks. Coincidentally, I am a logical robot-y personality, and I've just pinpointed how I can be of use: defining a problem and determining the most efficient solution to satisfy all of the known constraints is my idea of a fun Saturday night. I would guess the types of personalities contributing to this comment stream might be the very people necessary to solve the problems magnified here.
I became wary of the ACLU when I read that during the 1970's members of the organization had auctioned off free abortions at a fundraising raffle. I mean, I realize that was a long time ago and to my knowledge the ACLU appears to have done more good than bad since then, but damn, calloused much? Roe vs. Wade wasn't just a win for your team, guys.
Have you seen La Voie lactée, or any other Buñuel stuff?

NOC: You've made some insightful points, and I intend to mash them together with a lot of other things and utilize them to the best of my ability. Mr. Caruso: OMG YAY. And thank you for sharing your thoughtful perspective with the public. I've learned a lot from yourself and your readers, both here and at TR.
Actually, Quizmasterchris, your comments here have inspired me to pick up where I've left off with the GP. I met over coffee with the leader of the Augusta, GA GP in 2009 to discuss establishing Green presence at my then-University, right before my life became a blur of family illness, research and overwhelming schoolwork. I've lived in Atlanta for a while now, and things have settled enough that my lack of involvement is inexcusable. Thanks for holding out in defense of the party here, seeing this seems to be just what I needed.
Oh, Cobb County.
Still jamming, apparently.

"Yes, beautiful. It's a complex set of emotions for me, since some of my fondest childhood memories are the yearly trips to Armed Forces Day demonstrations with my father, a career military man, at air force bases around the country (wherever we happened to be living at the time)." ...Me, too. Also, I lived at Andrews from liiike, 1992-1996, approximately.

Piggy-backing on Regina- what about black tea? I drink it as an alternative to coffee when I'm not studying something dense. With my body chemistry, black tea has shown less likely to produce the negative side-effects associated with coffee, and it doesn't plunge my pH into the yellow.
I've worked from the bottom of the food chain, literally, a Taco Bell in Augusta, Georgia when I was seventeen, to the mid-top, CANOE in Atlanta. I've consumed philosophical works every step of the way. I'm not sure exactly, but I think Mr. Crow might have been making a point for philosophy being written by the upper-class because they have the time to do it? "Custom hath made it in him a property of easiness. Tis e'en so: the hand of little employment hath the finer sensitivity"? Or not, whatevs, I just know how it feels to try making a point only to lose sight of it trying to defend myself against the counter-argument.

Considering that I've never seen any of these movies in full, this was very educational.

"If I regret anything when it comes to this creature, it's that I ever entertained the notion, even briefly, that he retained enough of a conscience that the killing he'd be doing once he became president might actually trouble him somewhat." I second that emotion.
