News to me

It is very weird hearing that you've died. I feel fine but somehow the news media is convinced that I died Sunday the 29th; age 71. I would like to tell the world at large that Tom Snyder, 29, is fit as a fiddle and living happily in Lexington KY. Rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated.

Don't know how to feel here.

Steven Colbert made a reference to the Apple of Discord and the Original Snub. Below is the video that contains it (its at the end). A mainstream comedian makes a joke on a popular show and a few people in the audience laugh. The three-ish people who got it aren't what weirds me out; it's that the joke was deemed worthy of the show and was made. I wish I had been there to yell "Hail Eris!".

Evil Masterminds at Work! Caution!

Well work has gotten interesting. I think I've gotten my friend Gene a job at Lexmark. I think I've gotten my friend Casey a job at Lexmark if he wants it. I am going to be getting a new job there also. I talk to a person here, I talk to a person there, and suddenly everything I've been working towards for months happens right now. We'll see how this plays out with my trip to Thailand. Everything is going to be crazy and difficult but from chaos and hard work comes vast riches if a Discordian knows his way around a whelk.

Hail Eris; that crazy bitch!

You're Broke. You just don't know it yet.

"The abandonment of the gold standard made it possible for the welfare statists to use the banking system as a means to an unlimited expansion of credit.... In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value.... Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the "hidden" confiscation of wealth.... [Gold] stands as a protector of property rights."
"This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the "hidden" confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists' antagonism toward the gold standard."

Well I've almost complete converted over to a nut bar isolationist.  I want to buy a gun and convert my money over to the Liberty Dollar. I'm scared that my world and the things I love in it are on an inevitable slide down into the shitter and there isn't anything I can do about it. I see problems but I don't know how to fix them that won't be as painful as allowing them to fall over.

Help. I don't know what to do.

What I'd have meant.

GW Bush told the terrorists to Bring it. I can actually agree with that though I choose to believe it means something different than he did.  I agree with Bring it; Bring it Here.  Come fight us here, on our soil, away from your support structure.  Thank you for showing us how we were weak and complacent; I'm pretty certain that there isn't another plane full of people who will comply with a terrorist.

My problem is that along with the solution; waking Americans up, we've also stripped away a lot of rights and are doing a lot of expensive things that are positively mass producing bad guys.

Apologies. Admit failure. Leave.

A very scary book.

Freedom Under Siege by Ron Paul

If this is accurate and fair things are worse than I thought

Todays critical thought about Ron Paul

Is Ron selling me fear from a direction I am more willing to accept? At what point does informing a person of the hideous place they inhabit switch from information to terrorizing? Is the Government as fucked up as I’m being told? How can I trust the people I’ve learn to distrust?


One of the faults that I believe I have is that I have a tendency to self-indoctrinate. I probably wouldn’t trust someone else trying to convince me of something but I am willing to listen to myself; both good and bad.  I find something that I believe very strongly in and use that belief to help me ignore faults in the thing. I don’t mean to do this and I’m not sure how to correct it. My only certainty is that this is bad and needs correcting.


It is for this reason that I need people to give me their honest views on my beliefs so that I can try to determine the validity of their argument and the validity of mine.


Towards that end I have to say that I am pro-choice.  I do not consider an unborn baby a person; they are unborn. It is my belief that a fetus is closer to a parasite than a person.


Those being my beliefs I have to say I disagree with Ron Paul and his platform of Pro-Life. As I do not consider a fetus a person, I am concerned that Ron Paul is not for protecting my ability to choose.


That being said I feel that his specific wording is that he doesn’t think the federal government should support abortions or rule on the legality of them; both things I can get behind. He would have that turned over to the States.  That means that I would have the ability to go to a state that supports my belief in the freedom of choice and would allow “me” to have an abortion of an unwanted fetus.

Critisim of Ron Paul that I like

God I'm tired

If everything in my life wouldn't turn into shit were I to do so, I'd like to go away for a month. Just sort of check out of existence for a bit. No work, no responsibilities, no human interaction; maybe just a feeding tube, a pooping tube, and sensory deprivation tank. What do you do when you have to work so hard to have fun that the fun itself doesn't seem worth it.

I want a hammock, a cool glass of sweet mint tea, a good blanket, and a nap; and if the gods are listening someone cute and feminine to curl up with me.

God I'm tired

The Roommate has lit a fire under my ass about the apartment. Our lease has run out and we are going to sign a 3 or 4 month lease but after that he is moving out.  There isn't a grivence that caused this; he just wants to quit pissing money away in rent.  I don't blame him and he has a good point. He is talking about getting a house and has made an invitation to me and another friend of ours but I'm hesitant because it's a major decision. I don't have much time; three months isn't enough for me, but I don't have much choice.

I HATE moving.  I like it here. I don't want to leave.

crap crap crap
