Or Kill Me / no good title.

I've had that problem with Moore too, you know he has good ideas but you have to tarnish yourself with the rest of them too, and so you end up looking abit stupid.  Its almost like there is a giant conspiracy to make sure Bush looks good by promoting these people as his attackers.

Or Kill Me / Politicians and public morality
« on: December 17, 2004, 12:31:43 pm »
This is a story from the UK that has been brewing for a few days and has got me rather annoyed.  As you may know, our Home Office Minister David Blunkett has quit over an affair and subsequent abuse of position to get his lover's nanny a fast tracked visa to stay here.  WHY???  Quite frankly, this disgusts me, that he has gone because he has become, and I quote, "an embarassment" to our Government.

Never mind that he passed a criminal set of "laws" (the 2001 Terrorism Act, whereby I can be arrested and imprisoned without trial because I hold an Aussie passport).  Never mind that violent crime has risen by 12% over the last year alone, that the Police force have become glorified traffic wardens with too much paper work, that he passes more maligned directives than the Supreme Soviet (the ASBO is a good one if you wish to search for that) and he waits 2 years after 9/11 to increase the size of the Security Services.  Oh no, he had an affair and caried out a relatively minor abuse of power (chances were the nanny would get her visa anyway, it would just have taken longer) and became "embarassing" and so had to go.

If I met a politician who's only crime was an affair, I'd probably buy him a drink.  Interesting how this is meant to be the publics servant, and yet he goes over a privte indescretion (trust me, more was made of the affair than the visa).  Public politics sucks.  Blair only gets rid of people when they become embarassing, and for a lawyer like himself with nearly no shame to start wit, that takes a long time (normally at least 6 months after everyone else wants the sod gone).  Argh!

Emo poetry doesnt count as poetry.  Therefore I see no problem.

Or Kill Me / if you're part of the problem you're part of the solution

Reminded me of a Bruce Lee saying (and I am someone who does not particulary like Bruce Lee so feel honoured that I decided to quote him here, probably for the last time).

"Let yourself go with the disease, be with it, keep company with it-that is the way to be rid of it"- The Tao of Jeet Kune Do

Now I'm not sure as to what its real meaning is but I had always interpreted it in the sense of the second paragraph.  If there is a flaw built into the system itself, exploit it, drive it to its absolute limit. If the system is built on that flaw it tends to crash under the pressure of it all.

Or Kill Me / Philosophical Vomit (Nietchze!)

I miss my Nietzsche library I have at home.  It had most of the books and a few discussions on them.  He is one of the few philosophers I truly liked. Him and David Hume.

I'm bored.  
::consummates the next poster::


Thats Cthulhu's job :D Nice rant, kinda reminds me in part of Jerry Mander's book, 4 Arguments For the Elimination of Television.  The death of the mind, the boredom of life itself, thats so big you cant even see it from the inside so it doesnt even seem that boring.  You know, I havent actually watched a TV in over 4 months.  Or watched that many films.  If I wasnt so busy with the mountain of work Im often doing on my computer, I might actually have time to do something intereseting.  Damn work :evil:

Or Kill Me / Like a Ton of Bricks

Well, when i spoke about learning I also just meant generally.  People do tend to over intellectualise stuff alot, something I try to avoid if possible.

Funny you should mention Madonna, she lives very close to my home, in fact my mum knows the sister of someone who used to work there for her.  Ah the stories I could tell and be bankruted for...

Also, about the "cheeseburgers", isnt that in part who the Discordian Jihad should be against?  I admit I am fairly new to the whole thing though I have a slight head start due to (in theory) studying Philosophy and so am going by websites that are mostly never updated and odd tracts I find in random places (like the one that bought me here actually).

But I am willing to learn, an important trait I picked up from martial arts training.  Never think you know it all.  Never tire of learning.  Once you think you have learnt it all, or think you are "enlightened" then it will elude you.  You will have lost the "true way" (my reading of Musashi is showing here, isnt it?).  The way is never attained, one can only live through it, it is not an object to be seized and coveted.

I thought the point of using Kerry was that Bush would get in, make things worse then Hilary Clinton comes round next time and everyone hates Bush so much that they vote for her.  At least thats what The Times and The Guardian has insinuated more than once.
