Some blog posts are so perfect that all you can do is encourage your readers to hop on over and read the actual short post. Here is one from “Legal Insurrection.”
I meant to slam the Joe
ScarWhoreborough Palin hit-piece when it first came out. He whiiiined about Palin responding to a dumbass question about whether her new reality show would hurt her presidential aspirations. She laughed and said something about Reagan playing in “Bed Time for Bonzo” not having disqualified him from being president. Old Biddy Whoreborough took great umbrage and made it sound as though she was attacking Reagan. Not true. She was just pointing out what an asinine premise it was–that a reality show or acting in a stupid movie would disqualify someone from being president. Joe was just sitting around looking for an excuse to attack Sarah Palin, the better to get in good with all his liberal (and GOP Establishment) buddies. Fuck you Joe.
As today’s service to you, Gentle Reader, I will just point to some really useful things:
The Rawness. The Limitations of Knowledge Part I, Part II, Part III. I’ve been reading “self help” and “self improvement” books for about 35 years, and have actually applied some of the information therein. And I’ve had some success. It took quite a bit of seasoning for me to realize what is so beautifully and concisely quoted here:
It is much harder to live the truth than to feel it or know it. Knowledge is easiest. The mind is more malleable than the emotions or the body, and so the mind is relatively swift to change. You can hear something and immediately know the truth of it. Then you can tell it to others. You can write about it. You can create a whole philosophy around it. And still not much changes in your life. You can know the truth – for instance, exercises improves cardiovascular fitness – and then still sit on your butt.
In other very important news, The Camp of the Saints features Tera Patrick. Apparently, she is Not an Alien.
I didn’t have any idea who Ms. Patrick was before “reading” Bob’s post, but hey, that’s what the Internet is all about: EDUCATION.
