  • #Election08 Now after victory you’ll let him fall on his face. Cuz you’re lazy. And lazy. Also lazy. Slothful? Sure, slotful. Also lazy. #
  • @tomguarriello Have a brain? You mean knee-jerk climb on band-wagon is “brain”? Thanks for pointing out how fucked Uncle Sam really is. #

  • #truth Typically individuals are emotionally fixated at age 10. Intellectually, 12. You could see it, but you think seeing is evil. #
  • @Marti_L Maybe there’s something in that that she reacted to. Maybe something very pure. Hurrying makes us miss that. #matrix #
  • @Stammy “watching election coverage” Noooo. Are you? Wow … how unique / eccentric / bizzare. It must be just you. *Holy fuck!* #
  • @Mickeleh Is that what intellect comes to now? ” Think they’ll get any wrong?” You really do justify the cynics. #
  • “starting to dooze off here” … now, ain’t that a waste of electrons? Really, yuppies and yuppies’ kidz are a terrible waste of space. #
  • #fact I haven’t seen even 1 Tweet that shows anything like thought. You’re showing your colours, Amerikkka! You’ll leave him hung to dry! #

  • @DMular “stunningly gorgeous bike” Thanks. I was impressed by your tweets. Now I can UnFollow knowing you’re just EMO. #
  • Know how fucked you all are? Imagine, “OMG, there’s an election!” That’s how you sound … pathetically mindless. And you’ll help PotUS?! #

  • @DavidStephenson STOP FUCKING SHOUTING DIP-SHIT. Notes from a friend. #
  • @1938media And that’s what I tried to tell you: only in empty cynicism does your creativity show … so you suck up to fascists. Ever think? #
  • @yourdon Oh, now, Ed, as a master you can surely realize and actualize what’s foundational to communications. _Techne_, not widgets. cheers #
  • @LindaEskin Breaking news: if / when you add http:// to links like monitter.com folk can click on them. It’s called the inter-tubes. #
  • @giyen Imagine that … even in USA there’s a process. Uganda, Cambodia, Nepal … they get it there. But in Amerikkka? Rude surprise. #

  • @livingsanctuary Thanks … it was very in the moment, but I don’t take pics of myself (ever!) so *shrug* it seemed the right.thing.to.do. #
  • Well I’m gonna go get pissed. Twitter has shown itself to be “what it is”: entirely puerile. Oh, hey … you are the future you want. *sigh* #
  • @1938media ” Excuse me do I know you? And what the fuck are you talking about?” So you’re 1) asshole and 2) ignorant. *shrug* #
  • @giyen Noooo … she needs to see the sky, and the stars, and the sun as it sets and as it rises, to know from what she’s come. Not defeat. #
  • @mvizdos I love your attitude bro’. Got 2 or 3 friends who’ve been sand-bagged … hoping they’re as positive as they pretend to be. cheers #

  • Kidz … see? Gravitas is about remembering the guys and gals who are facing a gravel road in the dark. Or a factory floor and a long shift. #
  • Kidz: you’ve empowered hucksters and rewarded speculators. “Change” is about a hard step in the right direction; no golden road. #
  • #oligarchs tried to cut Obama’s Achilles tendon. Your “financial crisis” is a capital strike. Wake the fuck up … help your new President. #

  • @r Amazing … a fate only shared with 100s of 1000s who’ve gone before. Self-referential insights … soooo marketing. #
  • @livingsanctuary People jump on you when you admit your parents are American? No kidding … Alberta is by far the most US proc in Canada. #
