The hell? I asked you one question, is that the limit of your tolerance for discussion?

I said GOOD DAY. That was yesterday. New day, new beginning for me. Now towards the end of the day I see it's still the same old, same old from you. The truths you recognize are the ones that get you out of responsibility. That's why you've gone as far as you can go, both personally and professionally. No soup for you. Come back one year. We'll see if my hypothesis is correct.

Meanwhile, do continue to try to impress yourself.

Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and chicks for free

Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

We got to install microwave ovens custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators we gotta move these color TV's

See the little faggot with the earring and the make up
Yeah buddy that's his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he's a millionaire

We got to install microwave ovens custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators we gotta move these color TV's

I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama she got it stickin' in the camera man
We could have some fun
And he's up there, what's that?
Hawaiian noises?
Bangin' on the bongos like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Get your money for nothin' get your chicks for free

We got to install microwave ovens custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators we gotta move these color TV's

Listen here
Now that ain't workin' that's the way to do it
Play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and chicks for free

Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free

Easy, easy money for nothin' chicks for free) (I want my, I want my MTV)
(Money for nothin' chicks for free)

Do I strike you as particularly tolerant, of anyone, or anything, at any time?

Here's the thing, toad: all this...

I don't vote because I believe that tribalism is by far our biggest current problem, and fighting it is more important than voting. Declaring myself outside of it by declaring myself a non-voter is a principled stand. Being on no side allows me to more fairly judge and criticize the excesses of all sides.

I don't vote because I am not 100% certain of the best policies to govern us.

I don't vote because I am not a great judge of character.

I don't vote because I am an anti-authoritarian moderate and never find anyone that represents me.

I don't vote because people generally vote by their personality type and I don't think we should be governed by anyone with my ridiculous personality type.

I don't vote because I don't care to stay fully informed about politics in a world where our sense-making establishments are broken and desperate to reach audiences that demand only the affirmation of their own point of view.


...is poop.

Again: you can't make a show of the glories of democracy and respresentative government and then opt out.

Well, yeah, you can but that just makes you a hypocrite (not principled or thoughtful or insightful or an example to be followed).

As you like.

Both you two are alternating between unable to speak to me at all, and screaming at me full volume. Let's have you two battle over the question of how shitty I am and why. I think that will be entertaining. I'll just sit and watch, now.

He suffers from hypengyophobia and one of the symptoms is diarrhea of the mouth (he's got more excuses than Carter has liver pills). It's usually just monotonous; unless, he gets talkative while stoned. Then it can be entertaining.

"hypengyophobia"

No.

He's just a *chickenshit, and that's a matter of character, not a disorder.










*an assessment issued without **rancor

**cuz I can be pretty friggin' ***rancorous without even thinkin' about it

***which is a matter of 'my' character

I recognize that he has had some chickenshit ideas. I also recognize that good people can have bad ideas. I tend to separate the person from the idea and look at their ideas across a wide range of subjects. I don't paint them with a broad brush until they're consistently bad across the board.

In the political arena, I don't dispute your characterization and I'll consider all proposed etiologies.

We should be charging UT for this; but, he's providing the venue so I figure it's a wash.

The best thing about the secret ballot is if you fuck up and vote for the wrong guy nobody knows.
