And if an identity between bolshevism and fascism can be established, then the proletariat cannot at the same time fight fascism and defend the Russian 'soviet system.' Instead,...

Death

Posted 17th October 2008 at 09:51 by Plagueround

Today, sitting at the dinner table, my girlfriend and I were reminiscing about seeing George Carlin live, something I'm glad I had the pleasure to do twice.

My son was listening rather intently, so I turned to him and said "Son, I'm sorry you never got to see George Carlin live."

Pseudophilosophical ramblings

Posted 4th November 2008 at 01:20 by Ẋʼn

Introduction

First, I will make an admission - religious fundamentalists fascinate me. They have a worldview so completely alien and opposite to mine that to read their screeds that are frequently posted on Fundies Say The Darndest Things is to take a glimpse into a strange and terrifying (and to me at least) new world. These are people that genuinely believe they have an all-benevolent cosmic father watching over them, that He has a plan for the human species. Many of them also believe...

A Travesty We're Still Paying For

Major metropolitan areas all over the US are beginning to realize that their transportation systems are inefficient, wasteful, and, in almost all cases, in need of great expansion to meet rising population demands. While our politicians have no problem pumping billions of dollars into road construction and maintenance (largely due to the huge lobby this industry supplies), little long-term planning is present.
