As we get older and #stopmakingsense

And I’ll tell you why. This country is too fucking big. I honestly think…In nature, if a cell gets too big, it divides. You can’t come up with a set of rules that’s going to work for 350 million people. You’re just not. So we’re stuck. Robert Kennedy had this great quote: ‘20 percent of people are against everything, all the time.’ That’s a big number now. And you know what? ‘No’ is easy. ‘No’ doesn’t require any follow-up, commitment. ‘Yes’ is hard, ‘yes’ has to be worked on. It needs a lot of people to keep it as ‘yes.’ That’s where we’re at. When I’m president, we’re going back to the Thirteen Colonies, is what we’re going to do. It’s a weird time. Because the trajectory…Wow, I look around and I’m alarmed. I guess every generation feels that way, I don’t know, but I’m really alarmed. I talk to smart people who work in fields either, you know, neuro-cognition or social analysis, I go, ‘Am I going nuts or is this thing going a certain direction, really fast?’ All of them go, ‘You’re not imagining things.’ And I go, ‘What do we do?’ This could turn into Mad Max, like tomorrow. The fabric is so thin, I feel like.

(via Esquire).
[The Hobby Lobby decision] almost suggests that this religious claim is getting preferential treatment compared to the other hypothetical future claims that they’re talking about — and that, of course, is something the Supreme Court is not supposed to do under the free exercise laws. So it presents two sort of equally unpleasant possibilities. One is that they are going to be extremely deferential to free exercise plans in the future, which almost seems to suggest that people can get a pass from federal law just by invoking religion. Or it suggests that they’re treating this claim better, which is troubling because it’s a politically conservative Christian claim, and the Supreme Court should certainly not be more sympathetic to certain religions than others.

My Blog Has Officially Flatlined

Might delete it soon or something. Sorry if you follow me and wonder why. 


check out these things I made for my job over the last three weeks between teaching classes and donate to the non-profit I work for here (today only):

Please check out the work my talented brother is doing and donate to his non-profit. It’s a good cause that tremendously helps people.

At this rate, I don’t think we’re going to have a meaningful conversation about guns until we start using words for ammunition.

Hands Up, Who Likes Me?

RIP Rik Mayall.

A white college student from a private college goes into a poor neighborhood and volunteers four hours a week and that’s considered exemplary. [Whereas] a poor kid who lives in that community and takes care of all the kids in that neighborhood four hours every day is not seen as a volunteer.

I spun for too long and now my sound is gone. You couldn’t play me if you wanted. 

What did I used to go before I went nowhere?
What did I used to do before I did nothing?
What did I used to have before I had nothing?
Who did I used to be before I was no one?

Where did the time go?

I love to think about the secret life of the book and where it’s been and who’s had it.
