You know? I was going to register as some other idiot like the others but what the fuck...
Back for this spell. Because I'm so damn insignificant now for such a sadly damaged forum as this...but Appleinsider wished me a happy birthday this weekend...
Is it just me, or has Jon Stewart gotten better now that he has something to defend rather than just attack
I truly enjoy that he's come out in defense of the progressive tide in our politics. A lot of the younger people have grown up in a political environment so polarized that we naturally assume that one side is just as bad as the other. An environment where we're quick to criticize, but not to defend.
But that will only ever get you halfway there. Stewart helps me remember that although both sides have dirt on them, one of them is nonetheless demonstrably better than the other. That professional jaded detachment doesn't accomplish anything. That we won't get anywhere unless we choose where we stand and wade into the fray.
Jon Stewart is real. He is the truth. And he may have changed journalism and reporting the truth to a whole new level.
But I could be wrong. Anyway, did anyone watch the Bill Moyers' interview with William K. Black
Quite telling I must say. He should have been appointed Head of Clusterfuck Abatement for this financial crisis. Because the blame shouldn't go to Obama, or anyone else...just ourselves. Or Bush or Clinton or Reagan even...they have all been phonies, everyone we praise, vilify and rant on. Phonies. Not a true original yet in the bunch.
No, not even Reagan... I have to laugh here...We all have to...
Guess what? Maybe, just maybe we've all been gamed, ponzied and lobotomized by all fronts. Left, Right and Libertarianly fucked up the ass my fellow PoliticalOutsider nonesuches.
Go back to arguing about Apple and how well served and priced they are, how more superior they are. Because Apple's just hardware and the reason you and I have one is because we are all just BOOMERS
See you in I guess...1,382 days. Or until Hell freezes over. I will lurk, someday this forum will be worth posting again (looks over shoulder).
So! Hassan? Many blessings. Jimmac, FormerLurker, Northgate, etc.? Keep up the good fight.
Trumptman and all your aliases?
Ok. I guess I crafted another solid, true and irrefutable argument that you or your aliases won't read or care about ("agree to disagree", etc...). Therefore...
Party. Like. 1999
