    Also, the market's going to "come back," but there's no guarantee that it'll reach the growth it did in the last 20 or so years (especially since a lot of that "growth" apparently was built on a lot of fairly dubious credit.)

    liberalism/progressivism finds faults with capitalism like the left does, but they believe capitalism can be reformed & made nicer/more fair, given a 'human face' if you will (this is especially silly, trying to cure the sickness private property causes w/ private property)

    the left finds it a rotten system from the core given its inherent contradictions & advocates its abolition

    not too hard to delineate here.

    I mean, kanye cut the best part of the sample, which is too bad because it kills pretty much precisely his audience
    Young, very young, teeny bopping revolt on weekend young, dig by proxy what a mental ass kicking they receive through institutionalized everything, and vomit up slogans to stay out of Vietnam. They seek to hide their relationship with the world's prostitute alienating themselves from everything except dirt and money with long hair, grime, and dope to camo-hide the things that cannot be hidden. They become runaway children to walk the streets downtown with everyday Black people sitting on the curb crying, because we know that they will go back home with a clear conscience and a college degree.

    The irony of it all, of course, is when a pale-faced SDS motherfucker dares look hurt when I tell him to go find his own revolution. He wonders why I tell him that America's revolution will not be the melting pot. but the toilet bowl. He is fighting for legalized smoke, or lower voting age, less lip from his generation gap and fucking in the street. Where is my parallel to that? All I want is a good home and a wife and a children and some food to feed them every night. Back goes pale face to basics. Does Little Orphan Annie have a natural? Do Sluggos kings make him a refugee from Mandingo? What does Webster say about soul? I say you silly chipe motherfucker, your great grandfather tied a ball and chain to my balls, and bounced me through a cotton field while I lived in an unflushable toilet bowl and now you want me to help you overthrow what?

    The only Truth that can be delivered to a four year revolutionary with a hole card, i.e. skin is this: fuck up what you can in the name of Piggy Wallace, Dickless Nixon, and Spiro Agnew. Leave brother Cleaver and Brother Malcolm alone please. After all is said and done, build a new route to China if they'll have you.

    I'm genuinely surprised that this hasn't happened yet. Though, I'm anxious to see who's involved in the next (and there will be a "next"), and what it will take to end it. Last time, it was two nuclear bombs. Shit's only going to get heavier.

    Personally, I'm buying some guns at soonest convenience.

    the way international economic ties work makes a world war immensely unlikely (everyone is codependent on each other, or at least the countries capable of having world wars) and it's the ozone hole above antarctica which is shrinking, which has basically nothing to do with global warming

    this... has been fairly common for years, even in low-wage positions

    Drug checks and credit checks are a rarer concept over here in Blighty

    I have never undergone either, although I hear MI5 etc. do it

    My current employer is a branch of an English company and they didn't have any drug or credit checks for me

    my boss also leaves for like two hours at a time in the middle of the day to go to the gym maybe four days out of the week

    "micromanaging" is not a word in these people's vocabulary

    so mark that down on the "Lobsterbacks: Pros" column
