I don't know what to say, probably because I lack the words to express how awful it is, but I am glad you have the strength to talk about it now.

At the risk of sounding trite (I don't think my minor discomfort should get in the way) I'm sorry you had to experience that.  I can't imagine...

Once I got this, I just went outside and played football with my kid for the rest of the day.

Win  :D

Oh, I don't know.

Realizing shit about how the world works can open you up to a shitload of "ohfuq, THIS is what we live with," but it's better than walking around with blinders on.

Sure - but I wouldn't call it "enlightenment", because that seems to be putting another set of blinders on.

The OP is preaching to the choir here, but not a bad rant. Needs to be edited a bit for less redundancy and better narrative flow, but overall I rate it a 7/10.

I'm not disagreeing with this, because I note my perception is probably skewed, but I had the impression that a fair chunk of people here believed in "enlightenment".  It's more often talked around than explicitly laid out for mockery, mind.

Now do me.

You will offer a heartfelt, genuine apology to Khara, then you will post no less than 5 pictures of yourself for her to WOMP or not WOMP as she sees fit.

Just to clarify - would these be just for Khara to WOMP, or could anyone join in?

That's the beauty of Poe's Law in action.

Should we x-post?  Was that the idea?

CU,

I agree philosophically, just not yet practically.

Democracy might be salvageable (not that we have much choice), first past the post & anything else subject to Duverger's Law needs to go though.

The idea that we can trust anyone with power for four years at a time, where it is extremely difficult to remove them, has to go.

The categories here are ready to be finalised, pending any further input:
  http://erisbarandgrill.org/sandbox/index.php/So_Just_Exactly_What_ARE_We_Doing,_Anyway%3F

if you already have an account at EB&G, then you automatically have an account on the wiki - it uses the same username+password.

Then we can vote on them, and - with accurate data in hand - have an open discussion on what, if anything, we'd like to do about it.

How does that sound?

You keep talking about "the good old days", but then linking to the most inane of all drivel.

I guess a Cult of Ideology can't change course as nimbly as a Cult of Personality can.

Did the Right actually revere Bush, or just cheer him on because he was on their team?  In 30 years will the Right be yammering on about the "good old days" under Bush?

I think you both have your heads up your arses.

Palin couldn't be that much worse, and she'd be a hell of a lot funnier.

Obama's jokes were funnier when the other guy did them.

The good thing about you electing the Smiler is that at least now it's crystal clear you get fucked both ways.

If McCain had won, a fuckload of semi intelligent people, and I suspect quite a few of our own would have still believed "we wouldn't be in as big of a mess if Obama had won".

Crushing those beliefs might just have been worth 4 years of slightly lower quality jokes.

I just hope that it doesn't demoralise a generation into thinking that nothing can change, so let's not even bother.

Discordians are all of the above.
