That's why America is so great - to have our leader always high, and thinking about that wang dang sweet poontang. I'm voting for Ted, when it's his turn!

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are made to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." - Jack Kerouac

Ken Kesey was from my town. There is a really cool bronze statue of him reading Sometimes A Great Notion to some bronze children on a bench downtown. I don't know why I thought I'd share that with you, but every time I think of the merry pranksters, La Honda, or any one of his books I think of that statue. It's kind of cool that the city actually has a monument for one of the predominant counterculture leaders.

Oh what a tangled web we weave
When our children we deceive

Life is a tale
told by an idiot
full of sound and fury
signifying nothing

The Masters Make the Rules for the Wise Men and the Fools
by Ron Jacobs

One law for the rulers and another for the ruled. So decided English Chief Justice Bingham in his 1998 ruling granting the mass murderer (and former dictator of Chile) Augusto Pinochet immunity. His exact words were: "The applicant is entitled as a former head of state to immunity from civil and criminal proceedings of the English court." I don't know about you, but my reading of this decision is that Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, and a few other murderous former heads of state would walk out of this man's court room, as well. Once again, the law written by the rich and powerful for those of us not so favored has protected its own.

Pinochet was murderous, but he wasn't a commie. That ruling wouldn't apply to former heads of state we (the international anglo goodguy conspiracy) didn't like.

"When I tell you I dream it might seem like silence but so much can be heard." - Balin

"Now what is happening here, is we're gonna try to do a sing-along. Now a lot of people don't like to do it because they feel that it might be old-fashioned. But you must dig that it is not a fashion in the first place. It is a feeling and if it was good in the past it's still good." - Stone

"Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?" - Gaines

"When I was alive, I often received advice from my own big brain which, in terms of my own survival, or the survival of the human race, for that matter, can be charitably described as questionable." - Vonnegut
