teh. Real burritos all come from locations with a warmer climate.
You need to protest the fact that you will be getting a substandard burrito.
Burritos here in san diego are bigger, better and cheaper. That's just not fair.
The federal government should redistribute taco stands accross america so everybody has access to a decent burrito.
Fucking smug Judo brown belts.
Did you know that only 40% of the world's Judo practitioners currently have t3h 100% of black belts? And do they distribute those belts? Except for Matt Morton and Kites of Shamar, **** no. They fucking hoard them.
We are the 60%, and we want t3h black belts! Occupy joodo.

Sweet Tea? Where the hell are you located?

All public offices should have a 2 term limit.
First of all, it wasn't a CYA line. I believe that. I'm not morally against violence to accomplish a goal, but I think my family and I are far better off in a functioning society. I believe if things degrade to the point where we're having violent conflict, it could ultimately result in positive change, but I'm not naive. I know how much suffering would be involved in the process. I don't want my family suffer. I'd rather them live in a society that's imperfect but relatively safe and peaceful than in a war zone.

However, I also don't go around purposely fucking with cops and inviting a beatdown. Cops have a lot of leeway in how they conduct their business. They also tend to be protected by the local establishment. If you want to run your mouth in the back of a squad car and test a cop's willingness to put a boot in your ass, go ahead. I choose to avoid that.

And their overall opinion " we've got ours and the rest of you are lazy whiners".... rather similar to certain folks here who are still young enough to " know it all". The largest difference being that while those hear will pipe that tune they actually *DO* still give a **** about this country.
The corporations DON'T CARE , not about YOU who seemingly support the status quo , nor about those of us who quite openly advocate a PEACEFUL ( if at all possible) Revolution.
In the end all of our argueing *here* and in countless other locations around the world are merely a vehicle to KEEP the public divided upon the criteria of socioeconomic , religious , sexual , ideological and sociodynamic lines and at each others throats while they continue to loot the public via whatever method they can employ for a given location , and they'll go just
as far as regards human rights abuses in a given location as they can get away with , this has proven true over and over ad nauseum in a wide variety of locales and across history.
Start running the corporate tentacles on some of these companies , they lead some interesting places , and I've seen more than a few of them *personally*.
These are a glaring example of how much Big Govt and BigBusiness care about you and indeed about the populace at large. Once can proceed from their to the antics involved saayyy the MarCopper disaster , BP's various pecadilloes both in the 'States and round the globe ( and believe me the Gulf Spill is merely the tip of that sordid iceberg) , or the various and sundry Canadian lakes where the tailing froms the mad rush for heavy metals used in the manufacture of batteries for the " hybrid" market have been dumped.
After that we could perhaps discuss all the " public good" and how much govts and corporations " care" with examples such as the Ekati example and the various other toxic incinerators in the far North.
And since we've already argued as regards *education* perhaps some folks would like to discuss *exactly* what has gone wrong with our educationa systems ( as regards the States) and how it has been transformed to a large degree into an eduindoctrinational system geared towards producibg complacently brainwashed , submissive drones who will toil from womb to tomb without questioning their lot. Willing giving yet more and more to the massive parasite masquerading as the " host".
" It's for your own good." ..." think of the children. " and any other buzzphrase to play upon folks emotions and soothe them back into somnambulance.
