    • "Is that Zen, New Age, Taoist? I'm trying to identify the cult."

      just the common sense of a thinking human...the indifference of nature makes people so afraid they invent divine beings to pretend something outside humanity cares about them...

      I thought it was, "The moving, fickle finger of fate writes...."

      Actually she was wiser than you--after all she got you to pay for the food I'll bet >>

      Great observation, Stock.
      Ayn Rand, in Atlas Shrugged, described this syndrome in detail. The "looters" depend on our goodness. They know that we will always try to do the right thing and will usually feel sorry for the poor unfortunates no matter what their status, dirt poor to rich nitwit with inherited wealth. They count on this and are scared to death that we will one day wise up and, in their imagine, think we will let them die where they fall.

      If the repubs in Congress ever wised up and began treating the dems the way they hve treated the repubs it would be all over in a heart beat.

    • Taco Bell for 2 ten year olds fortunately didn't ruin me financially (maybe set me back a beer or two a week). Probably kept me slimmer back then.

    • OBP Just read your posts today. Do you need a little group hug??

    • >> Winners write the history books...

      You are one scary MF.

      Does that scare you, kid? It's true. Immediate history is always written by the winners. It takes years and the efforts of impartial historians, and they get to be impartial by waiting for a few hundred years, to dig out the true stories.

      I'm reading about Gengis Khan right now. You guys think the war today is bad news, that the stuff that went on in Afganistan and Iraq is horrible beyond belief. Guess what, Charlie, compared to what the mongols did todays efforts are mere fraternity pranks.

      Mongols marched capitives up to the walls of the places they were fighting. After the battles they raped and killed and plundered untill they couldn't raise an arm to chop off a head. In one battle, the turkish army surrended. They accepted the surrender and the offer for them to fight with them. As soon as the battle was over the killed 30,000 of the ones who had surrendered. And this is just a sample of what went on in the "good ol' days".

      The closest thing that can come to what the mongols did then is what the Japanese did in Manchuria just prior to WW2 and with the rape of Nanking.

      Reality sucks, kid.
