It's just a ride - Happy Birthday Bill Hicks

The world is like a ride in an amusement park and when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud and it's fun...for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question "Is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered and they come back to us, they say "Hey don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride... and we kill those people. "Shut him up! I've got a lot invested in this ride, shut him up!" "Look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real." It's just a ride. But we always kill the good guys who try and tell us ever notice that? And let the demons run amok... ...but it doesn't matter...because it's just a ride. And we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. Just a simple choice, right now - between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride... Take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over - not one human being excluded - and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer... forever, in peace. - Bill Hicks

What war?

Everyone is talking about a war on Christmas, I haven't seen it. Give me specific examples and maybe I'll buy it. I choose to say happy holidays because not everyone I know is a Christian, so speaking in general terms this is my way of being inclusive. I call it Christmas because that's been the tradition in my family. I think this 'war' is just divisive bullshit
