  • #Dharma – "You make people afraid of you." "It's what folk have inside of them that makes them afraid." –Clint Eastwood in "High Plains" #
  • part 2 – You live by sucking up, profit through manipulation, and fib dozens / hundreds of times each day … /I'm/ the one who's crude. YR #
  • Gawd TV is pathetic. Watching history of NASCAR just for a touch of mere sanity. #matrix #borg #
  • "Confidence" does not mean self-esteem. US students are #1 of 30 in "confidence". But #21 for science and #24 for math. My basic mistake. #
  • "Communicative gestures" are all sorts: a winning smile, or a smutty remark. Folk love to bla-bla-blah, but discourse? Folk lack the spine. #
  • #YEG – You the sort who groks shipping and receiving? Bet we could make a bundle optimising JIT inventory for the oil field. #geek #
  • @mario Unfortunately it's symptomatic of deep anti-intellectualism. On the materialist / rationalist / idealist continuum TeaBag = trog. in reply to mario #
  • Imagine, "See this tree trunk fits in the palm of my hand … so it's a palm tree" as badge of honour. That's "saved by faith". #TeaBaggers #
  • My respect for #yuppies knows no bottom. "Bullying is just what kids do when they're kids." OMFG #borg #
  • p.s. you wouldn't have like me as a kid, either. While you were watching bullies do their thing I was standing against them. And you. #
  • "Generation Kill" again on History Channel. hooa! (Don't know it? Don't judge. Bad karma.) #
  • Refinery Fire – Workers don't dare talk to reporters for fear of being black listed. Welcome to Alberta, Canada. *sigh* #
  • The desert wind scene reminds me of one time I was site logistics for a folk fest. Saturday aft … near-miss hurricane. Great good fun. #
  • AutoUpdate with #WordPress 3.0.4? #FAIL … You gotta be kidding. Gooooooood night. meh #
  • The American right is showing its colors: AZ Congresswoman shot. (TV show "Conceal and Carry" was just on. Sick … just sick.) #
  • Ultimately a "saved by faith" fundamentalist could shoot and kill someone they don't like because … well, because "don't like" is enough. #
  • @jamesjyu Carefully, carefully; "optimistic" does not mean "optimistic about recovery". At this stage it's more likely to mean "won't die". in reply to jamesjyu #
  • @FACLC You saw a lot of lefties walking around political rallies with pistols and rifles? Just goes to show that you're a /flake/. in reply to FACLC #
  • Jared Loughner was worried about currency, land ownership, and oh yes: mind control by government: http://bit.ly/bT6qqz < #
  • For the record: I don't think you'll find anyone who's called more often for the clear voice of lucid conservatism than I. Crackers /suck/. #
  • Cached version of Jared Loughner's MySpace says "can only be viewed by friends". Ironic, nae? #
  • @drgrist What you just wrote? The core of my studies in cog-psych / criminology. Spider "epistemic closure". It's a complex. in reply to drgrist #
  • As we drift into an ever less social construct, "social contract" means ever less. Add low self-esteem and unrealistic confidence. *sigh* #
  • @healthcarenuts No, won't register to comment. But: 3 days? Water + vy little = 3 days survival. Easy. No challenge. 3 good meals would do . in reply to healthcarenuts #
  • @CharlesMBlow Even a slight reading of the (alleged) shooter's videos evidences deep instability. in reply to CharlesMBlow #
  • @CharlesMBlow I can't think of an instance in history when zeal for solidarity and compassion and empathy motivated crime. *tilt* in reply to CharlesMBlow #
  • I got into it with a US army colonel last year. On levels of crime and violence? "It's because we're the freest nation on earth. *head/desk* #
  • p.s. yet another envelope bursts into flames in US postal facility. Breaking news: injustice is bad for your health. #
  • @digiphile The core reason behind my "GroundPlane 101" is that anger / resentment given no place in discourse. That's not healthy. *sigh* in reply to digiphile #
  • @MWJ1231 Broken grammar made key parts tough to parse, but key (apart from mind control) was currency and land ownership. cc: @Mickeleh #
  • @avinunu You've misquoted the story. Shows who you really are. /me unfollows @CodyBrown in reply to CodyBrown #
  • @mathewi "That page doesn't exist". Not that I care so much, but ;p in reply to mathewi #
  • @ryandevereaux But it's /you/ who brings Muslims into it. Consciously cracker? Accidentally cracker? *shrug* Flake. #
  • @IdeaGov My instinct tells me that this is a left-handed way to rally the faithful. Watch, it'll morph into defending open-carry rights. in reply to IdeaGov #
  • @Janefonda "Progressive"? Oh my … from my reading of things she was moderate, if not conservative. #
  • @dangillmor There's a subpoena against WikiLeaks. Goose / gander? (j/k) in reply to dangillmor #
  • @GlenAllenWalken Any chance you being the GOP candidate in '12? This aulde lefty would do comms for you, no problem / gladly. in reply to GlenAllenWalken #
  • @IdeaGov Thanks for the ReTw but out of context it takes on a different reading, as though the shooter was a gun rights nut. HeyHo. in reply to IdeaGov #
  • /Beliefs/ have consequences. Those who view themselves as the elect, saved by faith, can live in disregard … http://huff.to/e2NdwB #
  • Of 4 young girls behind Pelosi 2 were wearing pleasant smiles as she spoke of Gifford's fate. Yuppies' kidz give me the willies. #
  • 1 of 2 – Liberalism recognizes the tension between rights and responsibilities … protections and such. So why do we need conservatives? #
  • 2 of 2 – In the USofA "liberal" is an insult. Meanwhile greedy ambitionh is a virtue, and bullying / manipulation are seen as normal. *sigh* #
  • In other news: Seattle is whoopin' New Orleans. #
  • @tsbandito see my 1st tweet, 5hrs ago > http://bit.ly/f4Sw70 < Smacks of a troubling disconnect from reality. cc: @IdeaGov in reply to tsbandito #
  • Remember Foucealt? "Madness and Civilization" > http://bit.ly/fe1ZAF < (And yes, "post-modernism" is also a dirty word for crackers.) #
  • I ask myself again: are the psychopaths to blame? or the "nice" people who profit from systemic injustice, bullying, and manipulation? #
  • @timdorr I suggest strict Zen. No guarantee but betcha it'll give you a wicked sense of irony. Tally ho! __{*}__ in reply to timdorr #
  • @IsCool You may love NRA, but you're not real big on facts. Palin's August "reload" tweet was, actually, deleted. > http://bit.ly/dVZ8Hu < in reply to IsCool #
  • Q: the bullies you avoided or indulged in school … do you /really/ think that they grew out of it? turned over new leaf? disappeared? #
