what you are saying is correct, but it doesn't mean we don't have to seek perfection. we need to identify such problems and try to work towards a better system. we shouldn't just say that's life and move on.<br><br>i want to see a candidate who says, part of my program is to make the election process more transparent so that more people with good ideas and good abilities can get into power.<br><br>

Long, short, I was wearing a fire fighters coat. This thing was great. Comfy built to withstand god knows what and very well made down to the cuffs which slip over your thumb to keep the embers out.<br><br>Is there a place to pick up a used one of these? I bet they cost some bucks new. For chain sawing in the middle of the winter sort of stuff the coat would come in handy.<br><br>PS: definition of risk: Taking a birthday party of four eight year old girls to the Boston Museum of Science and you are the only adult. I wish I had a tranquilizer gun but actually they were very well behaved. I had "get this party started by Pink" on the iPOD. (All versions including the house mix. We rocked down the Mass Pike.<br><br><br><br><br>

Well, its officially hit the big time, its on Slashdot <br><br>A very weird thing to see a movie discussed there, but I think the idea is that there is so much interaction between computer technology and politics now (RIAA, Bush and Microsoft connection, etc.) that it deserves discussing the subject matter. Of course, the majority of the thousands of replies are from well educated computer scientists, so they're mostly liberal.<br><br>
LOL. Been there. Done that. Took my youngest and 4 of her pals (a few years ago when she was also 8) to the Museum of Natural History in Manhattan. They had their strategy down pat. In rotation, one would distract me while the others would attempt stunts like climbing the dinosaurs, pocketing a moon rock, throwing gummie bears into the mouth of the big hanging whale... <br><br>Ever since that day, I have to wear a disguise when I go there. <br><br>
If the coat withstood everything,<br>why do I hear bagpipes playing across the street so often?<br>(before I'm accused of being "cryptic" again, I live across<br>the street from the town graveyard.)<br><br>it IS freakin' popularity contest, ...and a festival of liars as well.<br><br>'Who shaved, and which side the candidate parts his hair! <br>who doesn't smile enough, and who's ears are too big.' <br><h1>WTF????</h1><br>So why do we stand still for it?<br>why ARN'T we voting for the BEST, instead of the "Least-Worst"?<br><br>Don't you see how truly sick this situation has become?<br><br>This isn't our GrandParents World.... this is TODAY.<br><br>Just as the 'world has grown smaller' by the advent of airtravel<br>...and the chances of plagues increased 100 fold as a result...<br><br>THE HARM THAT CAN BE DONE IN A FRACTION OF THE TIME IT <br>ONCE TOOK HAS BECOME A HUGE CONSIDERATION DUE TO PRESENT<br>TECHNOLOGY INCLUDING (but not limited to) THE COMPUTER.<br><br>While we're indeed personally concerned with the issues that<br>effect our personal well being (in our fireman's case, an actual<br>matter of immediate life and death) it is every bit as dire to <br>the rest of us that have to live on this planet ruled by profit-based <br>thieves & liars that are cutting up & selling off our heritage to their <br>CRONIES in upper corporate management positions, that see us a <br>NOTHING more than replaceable parts in their money making machines, <br>and consumers of whatever garbage they crap out on us to kill us<br>to pad their profit margin.<br><br>I resent being called a liberal by people that don't bother to see<br>that I don't endorse EITHER candidate. HOW DARE YOU LABEL ME!<br><br>All I want to do is LIVE. But I can't. I'm dying quickly from the<br>crap spewed out by a chemical plant that was finally closed,<br>then allowed to reopen elsewhere... poisoning another generation <br>of kids, because the New Laws under the Present Administration ruled<br>that Corporations are allowed to pay fines, that are less expensive<br>than cleaning up their act.<br><br>I want my best friend back that had his tongue cut out & still<br>died last year from spraying pesticides in the service of the people <br>of my state government.<br>I want my new best friend not to die because the sky above him <br>no longer offers him any protection, as he toils in the sun growing<br>food for our table.<br>I want food grown that nourishes human beings, rather than being <br>turned into poisons for profit by the new food corporations that<br>are about to take over the world, even as we finally begin to<br>see the wisdom of phasing out fossil fuels.<br><br>"The lesser of two evils" just won't do any more.<br>We are coming to a time where we are on the knifes edge between <br>a decent existence, & being ground beneath the wheels of the huge<br>profit merchants that sees us as no more than graphical statistics. <br> <br>Please realize, that the choice we make, no longer effects us personally,<br>and not even the entire United States.<br>This Time It's For All the Marbles.
