7. Vote for who?  As I understand it, both the Dems and Repubs are backed by the same economic masters and the largest third party, the Libertarians, are willing to make the de facto power of the corporations de jure.

And any other "third" parties are largely side-shows and stunts to get their face on TV and in newspapers so they can sell magazines, books, or whatever else their company/organization produces.

However, an interesting side note that i just thought of.

Maine's former governor Angus King (who was an independant) is part of a group called Unity 08.  They are seeking to form a sort of bi-partisan Presidential ticket for 2008.  It's not a third party but they are looking to have a President/Vice-President duo that aren't party loyalists.  Basically, they'd be moderates ala Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, or Lieberman.  People who are in a party but who aren't slaves to it.  Hope they are successful.  Even if they don't field candidates that have a shot of winning it might, at least, show that you don't have to be Political Party dupes.

I've tried to disseminate them, but recipients were righteously indignant when I failed to produce anything but an internet pen name.  Some people seem to dislike uncredited works.

Next time ask them if they own any recordings by Madonna, Usher, or Marilyn Manson.  If they still don't take the flyers, inform them that it wouldn't have helped their chances anyway.

This is in response, sort of, to some of the discourse about how best to go about spreading the discordianism message.  

FACT:  Grass will grow faster than Discordianism

We will not change the world overnight.  That's not the point.  The point is to change something.  Give those who will listen a chance to either find themselves or rediscover what they lost when they turned 5.

FACT:  Discordianism WILL spread by word of mouth.  (pamphlets, flyers, book swap, etc.)

How did you end up here?  Probably the same way I did.  A buddy leant you his/her copy of Principia.  A lightbult went off.  You had that moment of realization that you aren't really all that crazy for thinking the way you do.  Of course, you are living in a field of cabbages.  So, you wonder, are there others?  You Google "Principia Discordia" or "Eris" or "Malcalypse" and you end up here.  

You pick up your own copy of Principia or you print it out from this site.  You leand it to a friend from a different circle.  The lightbult may or may not light for them.  Or, they may be one of those who quote lines because they think it's punk or cool to do so.  Or, they may be the silent type who don't say anything to let on whilst inside the gears are a smokin.  You win some you lose some and you drive others batty with your "new weirdness."

So, to summarize:  

Grass grows faster than Discordianism and it WILL spread by word of mouth.  So, in other words, the word IS going to spread buy very slowly.  It may not be as sexy to go about it this was as, say, a Discordian Crusade but it most likely will be more successful.  In fact, we may already be more successful than we realize.  There may be neophytes reading these very words right now.  They are gathering up their courage to participate in the fray.  They may fear the appearance of being green or saying something that will be too dorky or PD-nerdy.  To those I say, please, join us.  The more voices we speak with the better.  The wider we will be able to cast our nets.  And do not worry, most of us can tell the difference between a cabbage and lettuce.  

Now, let us continue....

Which is really too bad.  I liked him more AFTER the scream, you know.

Anything is better than watching Al Gore's impression of a 2X4.

Ah. Well, I liked Holiday too. And the last bit of Jesus of Suburbia.

Holiday is a good tune and Boulevard of Broken Dreams was listenable but got way overplayed.  The whole punk rock-opera idea was novel and it was certainly a lot better than most of the rest of that year's Pop music.  But, I hate pop music so that isn't saying much.

not saying much.

I don't get distracted by peripheral issues like the rights of the three-toed sloth

Haven't they figured out yet that Americans, deep down, don't REALLY care about the environment.  Sure they'll pay lip service to it to impress someone but that's only because it inflates their ego and self-worth.  It's not for a better tomorrow or for our grandchildren.

Needless to say, everything DHS has done since its inception has been a total failure...As anyone who's been to an airport or port facility can tell you.

This is troof.  My cousin is an Air Marshall and he was telling me that when he goes on vacation he does not fly. He KNOWS security is that bad.  At least when he's on the job he's packing so he has a fighting chance.

Coming to my neck of the woods eh?  What part of Maine you heading to?

Sorry, can't help there.  I'm not all that big on either one of those bands.  AS sound like they have promise and I have to give them credit for helping to bring back the art of the guitar solo to mainstream music but I just can't stand the vocalist.  His voice is very grating.  

And I've never liked Green Day.  I was a big Nirvana fan back in the days before MTV turned them into the "Grunge Gods" so when Green Day and Offspring came onto the scene after Cobain had a lead lunch I think I was a bit bitter.

Yeah, because if it doesn't happen in Iraq, Iran, North Korea, or Washington D.C. it WILL NOT show up in the news here.

agreed.  The world stage certainly needs to have some re-energizing.  The current production has gotten very old indeed.
