"Left" and "Right"

Interesting to see research shedding light on something I have considered from an intuitive point of view before.

"Their research, published in the journal Science, indicates that people who are sensitive to fear or threat are likely to support a right wing agenda.

Those who perceived less danger in a series of images and sounds were more inclined to support liberal policies.

Get the ____ out you' throat and go vote.

If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don't bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don't bullshit yourself that you're not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard's vote. --

Happy Birthday L.

This should have been posted yesterday, but I spent all of yesterday playing with L. Her party is booked tomorrow with cake and everything.

Try to ignore the fool behind the camera.
