I wish I had written this guy's post....

I've been saying it long enough. But as I told my son most people want "experts" in  charge of their lives.


bankers who bribe our politicians, presidents who steal elections, assholes in Congress, scientists who know only what they read about in schools, guys at work who know only what TV tells them, priest who hide their pedophilia in church (Don't get me started on these scum) and let's not forget the Hollywood set.

But I really like the quote from MacArthur at the end of this piece.

dreamslaughter: Food For Thought
Civil disobedience, that’s not our problem. Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem.
~ Howard Zinn

Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear, kept us in a
continuous stampede of patriotic fervor, with the cry of grave national
emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some
monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not
blindly rally behind it.
~ General Douglas MacArthur

If English was good enough for Jesus, it's good enough for them Mexicans.
~ Texas politician, Spanish as a second language
