Get out there and don't vote

I would like to encourage everyone, except those voting libertarian, not to vote. It makes my vote worth more. Democracy sucks anyway; it's the tyranny of the majority.

Exploding dog

I recently stumbled upon this website. This guy, "Sam," draws pictures based on phrases people send him. I think his picture are very fitting and I really like his style.

An example of his art:

"it is not love"

Voting time..

Tonight I attended a debate for city council, school board and hospital board elections.

It was disgusting. Nothing pisses me off more than to see all these slick politicians talking bullshit and wasting my time. For city council, we have two slick politician incumbents, who are running for their 100th term, one totally ISANE dude who kept talking about how many times he's been arrested by the cops, one honest former police officer and another businessman. The cop, totally insane dude (he was able to entertain me for 3 minutes by saying absolutely crazy shit) and business man have my vote. I really hope the cop, Robert Ritchie, wins and I definetely hope those two idiot career politicians get kicked in their asses.

Don't you just hate these arrogant politican motherfuckers? They're well-funded by special interests and tend to steam roll over honest men who seek to end corruption, but have no power and no funding due to their honesty. Fuck all of these parasites.

The favored candidate, Jim Ayres, raised $80,000 to run a local election, as compared with Robert Ritchie, who only raised $6,000. Most of Ayres' contributors are people who own building companies and who want to build here.

Simply, I want money and power so I can crush these pieces of shit who have money and power.

Politics favors the corrupt. Fuck the corrupt. FUck politics.

Physics realization
I had an interesting realization during my physics test today, which interestingly enough, should have been some type of realization concerning my actual physics test. Moments earlier, however, I had been in a heated political debate with several members of the class over the current president and abortion.

Intrestingly enough, this girl said that she was conservative, but voted liberal (Democrat) because she was able to exclude her personal beliefs for the "good of the nation," and she like John Kerry for this reason, because she felt that he could divorce himself from his personal beliefs and be objective for "the good of the nation."

The thing that I realized is that there is no objective way to make any decision on any issue. Take abortion, for example: proponents argue that it's the mother's choice and those against it argue that it's murder. But in order to make a decision, one has to ask the question of "How ought things be?" There is no objective argument for that question, unless you believe in absolute morality, which I'm not going to go into. The fact is, "objective" arguments about how a woman should be able to "make decisions about her body" are valid only with a presupposition that freedom to make your own decisions is objectively good and things ought to be that way.

This brings me to my point: It's impressive that John Kerry, or anyone for that matter, is able to divorce themselves from their own personal beliefs for what they believe is the "objective correct thing to do." It's awesome in fact. I love objectivity. However, his "objective" decision that "abortion ough to be legal" is based on an underlying presupposition that he can't objectively justify. Therefore, his "objective" decision is no more valid that Bush's subjective, religious based decision, because both rely on underlying subjectivity. In fact, if you consider moral absolutes, then Bush, in his lack of "objectivity," may actually be more objective than Kerry.

Anyway, I wish I had realized more anwsers to the physics test. After all, math is objective unlike Bush or Kerry. No wonder I have so much trouble with it.

My candidate has been arrested

On October 8th at 9PM, two third party candidates were arrested for attempting to enter the Washington University complex holding the second presidential debate. The candidates, Michael Badnarik of the Libertarian Party and David Cobb of the Green Party, chose civil disobedience to fight the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). Over half of Americans believe third party candidates should be included, yet politicians continue to funnel public funds into the bi-partisan Commission. S.W.A.T. teams were used to deny the will of the American people while mainstream media ignored this historic event, a shameless suppression of political diversity.

Americans deserve to know about the unjust takeover of our political process. I posted this to take matters into my own hands. If you believe that real democracy thrives on diverse political voices and that it’s time to use alternative methods to support these voices, post this in your Xanga, profile, or Livejournal, or e-mail it to those who care.

Sleep and lack thereof

There's something to be said about sleep. Personally, I have a love-hate relationship with sleep. I would love to be able to fall asleep earlier and I hate the effects of lack of sleep. The problem is that when I'm tired apprently, for some reason, I can't sleep. And when I finally do get sleep I don't want to get up. I'm sure everyone has a similiar problem.

I've recently turned to quick-fixes to subdue this horribly beast that is my overactive-unwanting-to-sleep-psyche. I can tell you that none of that herbal shit like "melatonin," "seratonin" etc etc, does anything for sleep, even in doses far exceeding the manufacturers recommendations.

Certain herbal shit does help one to sleep, but I can't say that that's anyway to get a recooperative rest.

I've literally raveged through the medicine cabinet late at night, searching for something to take to cure my problems. I've quafed a bottle, (YES, an ENTIRE bottle) of sampler Niquil that some nice lady gave to me at Costco, taken meclezine, zolofts (yes, the anti-depression drug that I borrowed from a friend, but that is used to treat insomnia often) with no effect (although things did seem sunnier the next day ;-). Actually, just kidding, I really didn't notice anything.), Sudafeds and, even in great desperation, Advils and aspirin. These were all to no effect.

I did recently discover a cure-all drug, namely Benadryl, that did make me tired and that actually helped me to sleep. This only worked for a short period of time and the culmination of my long term use of Benedryl was the need to take successively higher doses, until I was taking nearly 6 times the recommended dosage. This would have been great, becase I have no quams about taking 6 times the dosage of anything if it helps me to sleep better. The problem was that in the morning, things didn't seem sunny at all. I don't know if the drug makes you depressed or you just have a hangover, but at any rate, I didn't feel real great in the morning.

So here I am, typing this late at night, looking for my next miracle cure.
