Suspended Animation

The endless false equivalences from the 'news media' drives me fucking crazy.

Daily Kos: The Left Wing Hate No One is Talking About:
"It is dishonest for right-wing commentators to insist on an equivalence that does not exist. The danger of political violence in this country comes overwhelmingly from one direction -- the right, not the left. The vitriolic, anti-government hate speech that is spewed on talk radio every day -- and, quite regularly, at Tea Party rallies -- is calibrated not to inform but to incite.

Demagogues scream at people that their government is illegitimate, that their country has been 'taken away,' that their elected officials are 'traitors' and that their freedom is at risk. They have a right to free speech, which I will always defend. But they shouldn't be surprised if some listeners take them literally."

Not too sure about irreversible, but ass whuppins have occurred. Just wish that would show up in what passes as 'news media'.

Neither did I, Johnny. I always considered you a principless asshole.

However, you did brand your Presidential campaign "Two Mavericks".

So 'liar' applies, also.

This practice is definitely a class cock block. Probably a factor in the music 'industry's tanking. Too many privileged incompetents.

Growth of Unpaid Internships May Be Illegal, Officials Say - NYTimes.com

Unpaid Labor Illegal? In America? : Lawyers, Guns & Money:
"Good on ‘em. Let’s be clear; the unpaid internship effectively excludes a wide socioeconomic swath from gaining useful experience and making effective connections in business, government, and NGOs. For example, it was utterly impossible for me to even consider an unpaid internship as an undergraduate; paying the bills was difficult even with loans and full time work. Lots of young people lack significant parental support, and require minimum payment to have any hope of making ends meet. Moreover, even for those with support the “payment” for unpaid internships (connections, experience, and recommendations) often has no lasting effect on the intern’s job prospects. If you’ve ever wondered why DC NGOs and journalistic organizations are dominated by Ivy Leaguers, it ain’t just because they’re smart."

Dude is hilarious.

Lord knows I've been doing my part in the test phase.

Is 'Suspended Animation' Just Around The Corner???


Just OMG. I hate you Ryan Reynolds (not really. I actually think you are kinda funny. But, still, don't be an asshole bogart).
