Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.
-- Robert A. Heinlein

    What I despise most about American politics

    As exemplified here.

    Party not in control: "These actions/policies/powers are unconstitutional overreaches of the limited role of the __________ ."

    Party in control: "Screw you, these things are cool."

    *an election happens*

    Party no longer in control: "These actions/policies/powers are unconstitutional overreaches of the limited role of the __________ ."

    Party newly in control: "Screw you, these things are cool."

    An open letter

    To the various conservative/Republican organizations that keep calling my home phone:

    Get bent.

    I found this fascinating...

    ...but I'm probably alone in that.
