The Lost Art of Protests

Lame protesters

The world has become soft, and so have I.  My mid-section is not what it use to be. Lazing around has taken over where an hour of exercise use to be.  I sit at my desk and at home, much more than I use to.  My joints are worn.

So what has happened to the protest?  Has it gone online?   Is it sitting in a chair eating a bag of chips.

The protests for the California State college system are very lame.  Have you paid any attention to how the students protest today.  Just a shame, I think.

Of course, I’m not interest in sedition and car bombs, and takeovers, as I’m part of the establishment now.

Yet it is quit pathetic to see how protest today is  done.  Even more scary is the illegal aliens are protesting, as if they had the right to do so.  They should be arrest for causing a disturbance.  Until they are citizens they have no political rights.

And furthermore with 4 godzillion channels to choose from, the local news doesn’t even fall in the range of stations frequently enough to hold the citizenry hostage to watching “developing news.”  Even if the protestors burned down something, the audience would probably switch to another channel like Fringe, 1969 super blown.  Smackdown or monster trucks!  Protestors today are competing with some serious entertainment – the value of which is limited, but still a good protest is not able to get much attention.

Is History Funny?

We have all heard the expression “history repeats itself.” And so we also know that human beings have a tendency to forget harmful and even wicked events. We bury them. And once we bury the history, do we forget it? It struck me today that when Jerry Lewis died, people start talking about the film […]

Of Perfecting the Human Genome

Of Perfecting the Human Genome

What do we do when we’re all physically and mentally perfect? Congratulate ourselves on eradicating the need to help each other?  Shouldn’t everyone fend for themselves?  Is human society evolving or turning neanderthal? It’s always best to start a philosophical piece with questions. How perfect is the human race today?  We still have a world […]

The Trash Economy

The state will give you all you need to live in one handy-dandy, little white-plastic shopping bag. It’s all about the taxes. Without a balanced approach, states are […]

America the oligarchy: Cheating for the rich

Ever since I was a kid, I hated the idea of cheating. I didn’t like cheating because cheating made competition null and void. When someone cheated, they were usually a bully type of person. I suspect that’s the same today. People who are really highly competitive, and love to grind down opponents tend to want […]
