Hey, today is OUR day y'all. Remember we spanked THEM starting today. Long live the (old school TRAD U S A).

You people kicked out British administrators only to submit to a cabal of thieves, proles, money-men, and Planetarians. And now look where you are. You people are so owned, you don't even see it. There is nothing to celebrate here.

I just read this book last month. It was truly fascinating.

America is in the gutter, thinking it is looking down from the stars.

Great book. First ran across it whilst recovering from too much sun and er.... tonic, yes it must have been the sugars in the tonic, at a friend's.

And steady on old man, we've got some faults, but we'll work through them. I hope. There is an American Ideal, which, if we can live up to it, is a magnificent thing.

"There is an American Ideal, which, if we can live up to it, is a magnificent thing."

I agree. We have, and Had so much potential (being an east-side Detroiter), and yes, we are all owned, whether one is in the US, UK, EU, or Republic of China. Reality sucks, but we can try as a true global population to again become owners of ourselves to change that.. I say buy local, buy less, and Buy Better. One can always try, and then, potentially celebrate what we could be or have.

No mention of the Diogenes Club?

"A cabal of thieves, proles, money-men, and Planetarians"?

You mistake us for New Labour.

K.S. Anthony said...

I wonder, scale worm, if buying is really what we need to do...

Good grief, Ancient, old fellow; I misjudged you, Mulvaney. Don't like the look of scale worm, though: bit chippy.
