Black Friday?

So, is anyone joining the 'herd' and going shopping early on Black Friday? Remember it's not Christmas shopping it's now Holiday shopping, to go after the non-christian market. It seems that they want to join in the fun too and make Walmart a pile of money. We can't seem to buy enough substandard foreign made products. That's Christm.......uh the Holidays in the 21st century. Enjoy your turkey but ...not too much because they say that it's mean to kill a turkey. Why is everything so damn complicated?
Well anyway, Merry Holidays to most of you, but just the ones who support my political views. The rest of you are just socialists, fascists and all around bad people. God Bless America because He's always on our side.

Cats v. Dogs

Since we’ve had these cats I started to realize that cats are pretty smart, smarter than our dog. Then someone brought out a laser pointer last night and the cats were running all over and around in circles chasing the laser dot. The dog looked at them like they were a couple of fools, when I saw that I came to the conclusion that dogs win.

Aldous Huxley

         "Twenty-seven years later, in this third quarter of the twentieth century A.D., and long before the end of the first century A.F., I feel a good deal less optimistic than I did when I was writing Brave New World. The prophecies made in 1931 are coming true much sooner than I thought they would. The blessed interval between too little order and the nightmare of too much has not begun and shows no sign of beginning. In the West, it is true, individual men and women still enjoy a large measure of freedom. But even in those coun­tries that have a tradition of democratic government, this freedom and even the desire for this freedom seem to be on the wane. In the rest of the world freedom for individuals has already gone, or is manifestly about to go. The nightmare of total organization, which I had situated in the seventh century After Ford, has emerged from the safe, remote future and is now awaiting us, just around the next corner."

"A society, most of whose members spend a great part of their time, not on the spot, not here and now and in the calculable future, but some­where else, in the irrelevant other worlds of sport and soap opera, of mythology and metaphysical fantasy, will find it hard to resist the encroachments of those who would manipulate and control it."


"Under the relentless thrust of accelerating over­population and increasing over-organization, and by means of ever more effective methods of mind-manip­ulation, the democracies will change their nature; the quaint old forms -- elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest -- will remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of non-violent totalitari­anism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slo­gans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial -- but democracy and free­dom in a strictly Pickwickian sense. Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of sol­diers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit."


 "Meanwhile there is still some freedom left in the world. Many young people, it is true, do not seem to value freedom. But some of us still believe that, with­out freedom, human beings cannot become fully hu­man and that freedom is therefore supremely valuable. Perhaps the forces that now menace freedom are too strong to be resisted for very long. It is still our duty to do whatever we can to resist them."

Aldous Huxley from "Brave New World Revisited" 1958

TV fun.

Watching HGTV,that show where couples buy their first homes. This guy is obsessed with having a man-cave. He's said man-cave about 5 times already. It seems that his aspiration in life is to become an American cliche. His wife want's an office instead of a man-cave. I see a messy divorce in their future.
