Nailing It (de Tocqueville Came Here - I Went To France)

U.S. culture - everything framed in confrontation.

Get all warm and fuzzy - Glenn Reynolds is on the case:

Applause - he sees it:

Democrat racists BAD

Republican racists? Haven't seen 'em.

"Kinda" cultish, right? 

At this point - almost practical.

How about that Mitt Romney, huh? Making a comeback. You do know he marched with Martin Luther King, don't you?

Fortunately, we despised men don't have to keep our stories straight.

I hear the laughter:

Where is the Love?

Fraud - certainly does sum up the state of things, doesn't it? But listen to me - another poor soul with a victim mentality:

I's the same old story, is it not? The "utterly fascist, utterly Stalinist" tactics used to advance (or hide) a lie? We live under so many now it's merely a distraction to mention it. To mention them. Oh, whatever - I stole the "distraction" bit from somewhere else anyway.

The point is no one's truly free. Never has been. Few even have an appreciation for it. But I do.

"It is just as obvious as obvious can be. Even a five year-old could see that it's obvious. But that will not stop this line of argument (and our perhaps overly provocative headline) from enraging those who prefer to luxuriate in a bath of warm and fuzzy emotional validation, rather than to think about this simple fact: In a world of scarce resources and limitless need, it's just common sense (and common decency) to direct our charitable resources to those who need it the most. It is not moral to pour charity money into non-life-and-death causes when that money could be used to actually save human lives.

Though it is not considered polite to say it, the fact is that most of the charity money we give to less important causes represents money not given to more important causes, and that means fewer lives saved, simply due to our own whimsical preferences. That's not nice."

Debt is slavery? 

Shut-up, Crack? No, I don't think so:
“To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.”

American culture is my culture:

It seems like a little thing but, I am an artist, looking at you all:
