Still Here, Still Enraged; Out of My Mind for 28 July 2009

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. — Buddha

Scumbags: Bio-Pirates.

The world’s greatest healthcare insurance system: The GOP doesn’t want you insured, just to pay premiums and get no service or coverage. I’ll ask: Do the fuckers really believe this crap they spew or do they say it solely because they’re paid to? Congress no longer leads, they just shill for their paylords.

Lying scumbags: These senators who want to institutionalize the insurers’ refusal to cover and call it reform. Now, I wait for Obama to simply say he will sign no bill without a vigorous public option. Bets?

Cretins: To the Times, it’s front page news that texting while driving is really bad. (And this one is little better. Or this.) Tell me that any paper who can make a call like that is of any importance to the world.

Scumbags: The RIAA: More proof that all the theft isn’t actually hurting the recording industry. Still no proof to the contrary…. Me, I see all the “thievery” not so much as a free alternative to buying but as a replacement of free radio as a try-before-you-buy system. Me, I think it’s nuts that anyone would really think that people would continue to buy freely without being able to get any idea what’s on album, whether it’s anything they’d care to buy, that people would continue to buy deaf.

(The story behind that last video is here.)

Cretin: Anyone who could watch this and say Palin has anything to offer in any leadership position whatsoever:

Dead: Merce Cunningham. (Check this out too.) A leader from the time when there was an avant-garde, before the only avant-garde was among the speculators looking for new but insensible investment devices….

The dirty secret of the Kindle: It’s ugly to look at.

This is where I’d love to live (at least if I could get broadband). Although maybe I’d like to visit some of these places or some of these.
