Tolerance for Intolerance? Really?

I am at a loss.  Honestly I’m bloody confused.  When did it become “OK” to tolerate intolerance?  Civility towards incivility?  How about civility towards depraved and horrible behavior?  How about … at what point does this become absurd? Or does it ever.  We all have a code.  And we must

Help with understanding Zerohedge latest, … anyone?

Perusing the pipes and tubes as usual and I came across an interesting article at Zerohedge, The ECB Has Opened Pandora’s Box. I am not going to speculate about anything this morning. No guesses about what the Finance Ministers might do on Monday, no simple addition or subtraction that the

No Mr. Buffett, you are wrong!

BUFFETT: It’s class warfare, my class is winning, but they shouldn’t be. No Mr. Buffett, you are wrong.  Your class already won.  Buffett made the above statement in a CNN interview June, 2005.  And even then they had won.  Check and mate.  The coup de grace had already been delivered.

On the plus side, maybe we would know where Iran is, … maybe.

Muhammad Ali, … really?

Ya, ya you know where this is going.  Let the flaming begin … Muhammad Ali?  Really?  That’s the guy we want to associate with King?  Or with anything remotely 99% for that matter? Ya, he didn’t want to go kill people in Vietnam (FDL #1, #2): I ain’t got no

“Not to reason why …”

We many, the 99. We, but pieces on their chess board, the world. We, at their whim perish. We, the tools of their trade, … war.   The impending Iranian “situation” frightens me.  What heights of madness lie this way?  What delusional insanity lies ahead?  And every day I remind

Above all, Be Civil

Just read wendydavis’ piece and near the end, Whatever it takes to speed up this non-violent revolution…is good with me. They must be stopped at all cost. Got me thinking.  One, about a diary I wrote a while ago.  I thought about our subconscious and how we’re wired as a
