subject: it's a sword if you know how to use it well
in reply to outzider in message #59:


completely free enterprise works even for non-rocket scientists...

it is the equalizer.....the race is not to the swift, brawny or even the smartest:


\
"He sounds as though I shall like him, sir."

"I am sure you will. He is a man who has all my respect. He possesses a quality of . . . how to express it? . . . of shibumi."

"Shibumi, sir?" Nicholai knew the word, but only as it applied to gardens or architecture, where it connoted an understated beauty. "How are you using the term, sir?"

"Oh, vaguely. And incorrectly, I suspect. A blundering attempt to describe an ineffable quality. As you know, shibumi has to do with great refinement underlying commonplace appearances. It is a statement so correct that it does not have to be bold, so poignant it does not have to be pretty, so true it does not have to be real. Shibumi is understanding, rather than knowledge. Eloquent silence. In demeanor, it is modesty without pudency. In art, where the spirit of shibumi takes the form of sabi, it is elegant simplicity, articulate brevity. In philosophy, where shibumi emerges as wabi, it is spiritual tranquility that is not passive; it is being without the angst of becoming. And in the personality of a man, it is . . . how does one say it? Authority without domination? Something like that."

Nicholai's imagination was galvanized by the concept of shibumi. No other ideal had ever touched him so. "How does one achieve this shibumi, sir?"

"One does not achieve it, one . . . discovers it. And only a few men of infinite refinement ever do that. Men like my friend Otake-san."

"Meaning that one must learn a great deal to arrive at shibumi?"

"Meaning, rather, that one must pass through knowledge and arrive at simplicity."

From that moment, Nicholai's primary goal in life was to become a man of shibumi; a personality of overwhelming calm. It was a vocation open to him while, for reasons of breeding, education, and temperament, most vocations were closed. In pursuit of shibumi he could excel invisibly, without attracting the attention and vengeance of the tyrannical masses.

name one country that has had a completely free market with unregulated enterprise and succeeded with it. and don't say the Chilean government almost had it right because we all know they hid their unemployment and infant mortality rates from the UN during those dark years. face it dude, your Friedman-omics have been tested and have failed, now you are just clinging to them like some tired has been sucking at the dry tit of lost fame.

ah gotcha! great song that one. some would say that the best way to block ignorance is to lead by example,
and that might mean letting it scream until it realizes no one's listening.

what do you think? you could always challenge it to a battle of wits in the cars forum, with the loser having to stop trolling, or maybe close an account, but we all know where that would lead.

in reply to outzider in message #49:


The EFF—not exactly a conservative organization—says, "In Warrantless Wiretapping Case, Obama DOJ's New Arguments Are Worse Than Bush's."

Nobody could have seen this coming!


...Except for anyone who remembers reading this White House press release back in 1994.

We understand that many in industry would like to see all encryption products exportable. However, if encryption technology is made freely available worldwide, it would no doubt be used extensively by terrorists, drug dealers, and other criminals to harm Americans both in the U.S. and abroad. For this reason, the Administration will continue to restrict export of the most sophisticated encryption devices, both to preserve our own foreign intelligence gathering capability and because of the concerns of our allies who fear that strong encryption technology would inhibit their law enforcement capabilities.

The Clinton administration was so intent on spying on Americans that it tried to outlaw math. The Clipper Chip never did fly, but development of SSL (the 's' in the 'https' you see in your browser whenever you shop or bank online) was moved to Europe to get around American restrictions on encryption. That fascist George W. Bush was actually the one to repeal it.

wow, most of that post made as much sense to me as Glen Beck.

do you ever take a look around you and see the people that are on your side. it is hard to take you seriously when your constituents are talking about "FEMA Concentration Camps". it makes it seem like you are a member of the "tin foil hat party" more than anything else.

welcome to irrelevency.

"a" "e" sue me.

at least i am not selling cell phones from a mall kiosk. i don't know how you look your self in the mirror in the morning after facing all that rejection.

you'll be happy to know i am not working a union job right now. i am a bouncer at an "alternative" bar. And the best part, is getting to put morons like you under the dumpster out back when you slip up, call some one a fag, and they complain. My boss likes the way i enforce the zero tolerance policy. he considers republicans a hate group because of its support to marginalize the citizens of California, and we don't allow hate group members in.

so as long as you keep your mouth shut, your fine. but you and your paranoid sisterhood actually have a reason to think we are out to get you. because we are.

how much is the going rate for a bouncer in a ghey bar?


you have a weak jaw, btw (better protect that)


does your girl play the piano? she looks decent. she has nice teeth.


that's one of my favorite cellphones! & i am indeed happy to know you've left that union job....


so the other ghey morons you put in the dumpster out back are republicans? they may be portuguese!

since your boss doesn't allow republicans in, then there are probably only democrats & portuguese morons in that dumpster lol

that makes them ALL GREEN....after they become compost fertilizer mixed in the garbage dump......good for the environment
