Perhaps The Best Paragraph You’ll Ever Read

"The Great Depression finally came to an end in the United States because millions of men were removed from the unemployment rolls and put to work smashing the means of production and reducing the labor pool on two foreign continents. There is no great secret behind the incredible economic growth of the '50s and '60s; if GM were to blow up all of the automotive factories in Japan, Germany, Korea, India and China, it would be able to assure itself of similarly explosive growth in its auto sales for the next decade. If Obama wants to end, rather than exacerbate, the current economic contraction, he has two effective choices: Resist the impulse to intervene in the economy or attack foreign lands." – Vox Day

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    I vote to attack foreign lands, beginning with the EU. 😛

  2. TedWest says:

    I prefer an attack on Washington!

  3. Darcy says:

    You dudes are so violent 😛 And Ted's the moderate!! LOL

  4. TedWest says:

    Don't let it get to you, It'll eat you up. You need to understand that being a moderate doesn't exclude violence… it means that I know when, where, and how to target it for maximum casualties for the shortest duration.
    The doctrine of Overwhelming Force IS moderate!

  5. Jordan says:

    I am suspicious of moderates (in politics). That is one adjective that doesn't apply to Ted. Subversive is more his style.

  6. TedWest says:

    OK, but just so we're straight, over at BloggersBase, I'm a compassionate moderate, yeah?

  7. Darcy says:

    Jordan,I've been teasing Ted because over at BloggersBase they think I am the radical one! That was actually supposed to be a jab at both of you because that other guy thought Jordan was a Dude, Dude. (snicker-snicker)

  8. Jordan says:

    Yeah Ted, on BB you have relegated yourself to the humor section and I understand why. you know, not rocking the boat.

  9. Jordan says:

    Darcy, first of all let me say that I realized who you were on BB just 2 days ago, after noticing the avatar looked familiar and checking your blog and putting 2 and 2 together. See I thought, you didn't comment on BB.As for the "Dude" comment, Confuciosness has called other women Dude (you too) b/c the gender was not specified in their profile.Man (not you), I sound so boring with these explanations.

  10. Darcy says:

    LOL — I thought it was funny.Jordan, I try not to be too political and I temper my comments because I have this public image and I like to eat, so I don't want to piss-off 1/2 my customers. It's hard to do. Ted has done a fine job of keeping his opinions hidden over at BB. That Ultra Fine – KEK guy is voting us all down like crazy. He's voted thumbs down 87 times as of this morning. I vow to vote him down at every opportunity. The more he votes us down, the less our votes count and the lower our score is.

  11. TedWest says:

    It's as you say and more. I have no desire to do political commentary the way I used to. Not to mention that the competition in Politics is already intense, and frankly, when that happens in anything, I usually bow out. See, I'm all competitioned out. I was a major athlete many years ago, and as I told Chad last week, I didn't just play to win, I wasn't happy if there weren't casualties. I never realized that such feelings would one day leave me "war weary."
    Although I did experience a resurgence with Chad who was not exactly a willing participant at first. I kept insisting that we were going to WIN at BB, and that we were going to take no prisoners. He had a ridiculous concern about something he called "ethics." I told him there was plenty of time for that once we WON! And now we are winning… and Chad's is becoming the lazy me, so what are ya gonna do?

  12. Jordan says:

    Darcy, I thought it was hilarious. How do you know Ultra Fine is the one voting people down? Is there a way to keep track of who votes what?

  13. Jordan says:

    I understand backing up our side, because the critters on the opposition know nothing about fair play. I too have gone through the weary phase. I am not interested in prolonged battles that degenerate in personal attacks. But I will no shy away from saying what I think.

  14. Darcy says:

    Jordan,over on the left side there is a "top readers" link. Go to page 5. You can see how many times each person has voted down and had down votes against them.

  15. Darcy says:

    Jordan,I'm feeling like I need to be a little more scarce on the BB political pages. I'm glad to hear that you just figured out it was me. This is just to illustrate my point. Today, I sold several books to someone named Martha DuPont. A quick google search of this person brings me over to the Huffington Post. So, you see, I have a financial stake in keeping my opinions to myself.

  16. TedWest says:

    Jordan, I've said many times that civilized people have to be able to "out vicious" the degenerates. There is then plenty of tiem to return to civility afterward. I don't believe in that "eye for an eye" junk. You take my eye, and I want all of you!

  17. Jordan says:

    Darcy, no need to apologize.Fully justifiable. We all do our part in various ways.Thanks for opening another door (top readers) on BB.

  18. Jordan says:

    Ted, I get the gist, but don't you agree that outsmarting them is better? And yes, if the choice is between "Dirty Harry" or the punk, I'm with Inspector 71.

  19. TedWest says:

    I have no idea what you said there, so now I understand how most people must feel about me!
    I assume "the punk" is Joel, but Dirty Harry? I'm lost, and Inspector 71? Are we inspecting underwear?
    But in answer to your question, I'm sure I agree.

  20. Jordan says:

    Inspector 71 aka Dirty Harry. I was attempting to correlate the action of D.Harry who didn't always follow procedures, but had the right attitude about getting the "punk" off the street to safeguard innocent people.Is it any better?.

  21. TedWest says:

    Now I'm with you. But Dirty harry wasn't real, so I prefer Charles Bronson, though I don't remember his name!

  22. Jordan says:

    Charles Bronson in Death Wish? Clint Eastwood played Dirty Harry.

  23. TedWest says:

    Yes, but his name wasn't Death Wish, was it?

  24. Jordan says:

    No his name was 'Make my day, punk!'

  25. Darcy says:

    LOL — go get that Ultra Fine guy. I'm pretty sure he's the new punk.

  26. Washington, DC = Death Star against the economy and human freedom.

  27. Jordan says:

    Should I be concerned about being liked or being right?
