Very generous Karma, Sigmonkey.
Happy 10 years! Glad to "know" you
Every day, the New York Times carries a motto in a box on its front page. "All the News That's Fit to Print," it says. It's been saying it for decades, day in and day out. I imagine most readers of the canonical sheet have long ceased to notice this bannered and flaunted symbol of its mental furniture. I myself check every day to make sure that the bright, smug, pompous, idiotic claim is still there. Then I check to make sure that it still irritates me. If I can still exclaim, under my breath, why do they insult me and what do they take me for and what the hell is it supposed to mean unless it's as obviously complacent and conceited and censorious as it seems to be, then at least I know I still have a pulse. You may wish to choose a more rigorous mental workout but I credit this daily infusion of annoyance with extending my lifespan. -Christopher Hitchens
"At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats."
“It is just as difficult and dangerous to try to free a people that wants to remain servile as it is to try to enslave a people that wants to remain free."

The other day I noticed that i've Been wearing the same silver coin ( Minted for the soccer world cup 1978) on my keychain for 40 year And it's all worn out. It would he a pleasure And and honor to replace it with a SF coin And wear it for the next 40 year - or after decreonysation
Thank you (and SF) for the input, humor, sense (both common and knowledge), compassion, compass, and for giving my mind a place to park away from the insanity

Not in for the karma as I already have a coin.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
Awesome post, well said and great Karma. Thanks for the chance.
A great place indeed. Such wonderful folks here that I can't fathom spending my time anywhere else (even for realsy ). Thanks for a chance at a great karma.
No thanks, I've already got a penguin.

Thank you for the chance at this Karma. While my post count is pretty low rest assured I gain a great deal of knowledge by spending time here. I hope I have passed on something useful as well.

"The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."
