  1. The Great Thing About Attacks on the Constitution Is that is solidifies and galvanizes support for the Constitution, and since everybody's ox is being gored, the support is across political boundaries. Tom Ridge= The guy everybody loves to hate. Repeat after me loudly: "If they can do it to them, they can do it to me." DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS.
  2. Smart got it in one We argued about it for hours. It provided endless entertainment at Anarchist/IWW/DSOC/Libertarian Party get-togethers.
  3. A guy in the Wobblies that I knew, died in New York like that about 1972 or so. He came home drunk to his apartment and realized he was locked out, so he tried to crawl out on the third-story ledge and get in a window. He hit the fence around the basement stairs. DOA. Bummer.
  4. For Christ's sake, Heydrich, why are you shouting? This is a small forum. You're hurting my ears.
  5. Let's Drink To That I got a gallon of Carlo Rossi paisano sittin' right here. I'm embarrassed to admit how much I enjoy posting in 12 oz. It's becoming a bad habit, like smoking. But it's nice to know people enjoy my writing and rambling. Do you know I was the only anarchist in my school in 1969? I had one friend who was a Libertarian, and we argued about something you guys never heard of, called "The Waterhole Theory." It goes like this: A guy is walking across the trackless desert and about to die of thirst, and he happens upon a waterhole. Overjoyed, he falls on
  6. Had one when I was riding my Harley a lot I guess it was just part of the uniform. My wife had a job at the Harley shop as a bookkeeper, because we knew the owners. There was a big ass recession, and the H-D shop was in deep trouble. To pay her the wages they owed her, they gave her Harley parts at at employee discount. I cleaned up big time that Christmas---new chrome drag pipes, tune-up kits, T-shirts, etc., including a cool ass chain wallet. I carried it for years, but when I went to nursing school in 1993, I hung it up, and mothballed my scooter. I never lost my wallet eithe

    All Humans are rather obviously not "equal" Some are more intelligent than others. Some are richer, poorer, taller, more attractive, have better teeth, etc., etc., etc. People may be equal before God, or under the Law, but other than things like that, they are clearly not equal. I think a good case can be made that all men (people) are created equal. But once born into this world, myriad forces and conditions, etc., begin to take effect. I bear the Somalis no ill will, but myself and my family are far, far, far more important to me than all of them put together. No reason to ge
  8. Smart, start a Hemingway thread I think this subject is good enough to spawn a whole shitload of good written sparring. BTW, I love Hemingway's novels, and my only big gripe with him when I was reading his stuff a lot was the fact that he dissed the anarchists in his Spanish Civil war stuff, because he was a Communist sympathizer. IF ANYONE HERE HAS NOT READ "FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS", GET BUSY. It was great. I always wanted to be like the dynamiter.
  9. Hey! Watch that "hippie reject" shit, there, you young whippersnapper. Why, the Boomer generation...uh....what was I talking about again?
  10. Life Experience is a Good Teacher I had to fuck up a few times, before I figured out that some things are just not worth hassling about. Some people think that they can get their way by being aggressive and threatening. This girl, and probably her parents (she learned this stupidity somewhere) has probably been successful in getting her way with authority figures like teachers, store owners, coaches, etc. by behaving this way. If she doesn't wise up, she'll pull this stupid behavior with some thug and get killed. The annoying thing about people like this is they think they can bully e
  11. What kind of music do you play? That would help a lot. It's hard to make suggestions unless we know more about you. What sort of principles drive your commitment to the band? To music itself? To Art-with-a-capital-A? What are you trying to communicate with your music? Who writes the tunes? What is his(her) social/political/sexual/psychic orientation? What instruments are part of your music? I've been looking for years for somebody to bring back the electric jug, a la the incomprable "Thirteenth Floor Elevators."

    Sorry, Ink Lunatic We cross communicated because I didn't direct my reply properly. It sounded like I was dismissing your comment and I didn't intend that at all. Please tell us whatever you can remember about Somalia. Were you born there?

    T.T. Boy True. What's your point again?
  15. Ever been Pepper Sprayed? I never have, but I got tear-gassed twice back in the '60s and had to go through the Gas Chamber during Marine Corps Boot Camp. Tell you what, the man tells me to "Stop, and put your hands on the hood of the car!" I do exactly as he says. A jaywalking ticket is no big deal, but that fucking tear gas hurt like a motherfucker. No thanks. Where do the kids in Florida get their how-to-survive-on-the-street education anyway? That girl's mamma must left out the lesson about not cussing out the po-leece. My opinion: Do not provoke big ass guys carrying gu

    Chicken Bone Love that handle, by the way---uh, I don't really care what political position or religion or anything that the Somalis espouse. My one and only beef with them was that they shot up a bunch of American helicopters and Special Forces troops. We sent them help, and they fucked our guys over. Therefore, fine, let the French or the British or the Brazilians send them help from now on. We should be generous to people that treat us decently and refuse to help people who do us wrong. There was no reason for them to continue to attack wounded Special Forces troopers. They could
  17. Sounds like the whole world already knows his stinky little secret How could they not know? Sounds like your roomie is headed for some serious alcoholism, too. Bummer. Move.
  18. Do you suppose she'll ever threaten to hit a cop again? Doubt it.
  19. I don't know man. Maybe it's the way you wear them, or something. And what does a "hobo hat" look like, exactly? When I was a kid, hobos wore a felt hat like in old 1940's movies. Ever see a picture of Boxcar Willie? He was no hobo, but he had the look down pat.
  20. I don't know, Smart. I just can't see one of Hemingways' characters pussin' out and swallowing a shotgun barrel. All that macho running-with-the-bulls shit, and then he sucks on a 12 gauge in Idaho? Come on. But he did have some FINE ASS grandaughters, for sure.
  21. It's a cliche, but I loved it in 1967 "For Whom the Bell Tolls." good ol' Ernest Hemingway. He was a phoney, but I like his shit anyway. Another good one, from that same period was "Across the River and Through the Trees." Another Hemingway war novel. There were a great number of war novels written after WWII by young intellectuals who joined the service out of either patriotism or political/social principles. Remember, we were fighting the Nazis, so once the Hitler/Stalin Pact of 1939 was over, young, American, Communists and socialists flocked into the armed forces to figh

    Y'all got some excellent grammar Uh, I guess my point was that although I stupidly talked shit about the Somalis in the past, it turns out that they've got more on the ball than I thought, and seem to have an admirable tradition of refusing to let strong central government get a foothold in their country. AS LONG AS THEY ARE ARMED and it's too much trouble to go jack around with them, they might pull it off. Their situation with a tribal society where nobody owns land except the tribe, and NO TAXES, along with "few" or "no" government services to speak of, will probably be able to exis

    Some people can't be pleased. (Yawn.) The people of Somalia manage to try and create at least something good out of an admittedly shit sandwich situation, and you guys appraently can't see it. Somali kids don't get a choice about where they live, who they are or the life they grow up in, any more than you do, or I do. In fact, a tribal society is a lot more restrictive and rigid a life in many ways than the post-industrial society we live in. You are who you are. Spare me the self-righteousness. Bill Clinton sent our soldiers there with inadequate tank and air support. It was a ma

    There is something entirely new going on in Somalia. I don't know how much of a chance it has of success, but it's at least worth noticing. Somalia was the site of the little military tragi-comedic drama that resulted in the movie "Black Hawk Down." I have, myself, posted statements on this site referring to Somalia as a "Third World shithole" and advocating that the U.S. and Europe simply allow them to starve, since they bite the hand that feeds them. HOWEVER--it has come to my attention that there is a serious effort afoot to try and maintain Somalia as what is called a kritarchy
