    I heard there was a place in Times Square in NYC that sold gummy bears the size of your head. Probably FAO Schwartz. That place rocks! You know… for the gummy bears.

    BBC News is running an article discussing how scientists have been able to take control of fruit fly brains to make females behave just like males. Another complete waste of government funding, but hey, grant research pays pretty damn well. So when does the military admit it’s already utilizing this technology and has sent Ann Coulter into the American populace as an agent of destruction?

    I stopped by the downtown market on my way home from work to get tiger prawns and tomatoes for seafood gumbo. While in the store I saw a sign that said “pet supplies”. So I did.

    Socialism vs. Capitalism

    I’m not one to peruse video sharing sites, but this link was passed to me on an albeit non-video critique of capitalism versus socialism. It’s a little slow and hard to follow with the orator’s rather thick English accent, but what I found most interesting was the video response entitled “See Dick Prosper“. This guy is trying to defend capitalism without actually having to say he’s defending capitalism. He starts off by quoting Ayn Rand and her self-developed philosophy of Objectivism which pretty much means we have the right to starve.

    “We all choose our life path, our careers, our lifestyles, including those whom, at this point in time, have less than us.” This simply couldn’t be less true. The fact is, there is far more in an individual’s life that they don’t control than they do. You can’t have personal responsibility when you are forced to accept responsibility for things which you can’t control. In order to have true personal responsibility, in order for your gain or loss to be a measure of your worth, you can have neither good, nor bad, luck. Capitalists are perfectly happy to take responsibility for luck as though it were of their own making, and to accept the bad luck of others just the same. Neither is true.

    Follow me here… Most of the successful people in the world are so despite their efforts, not because of them. They have a good family, or good luck, or good money, or any of the other things that are not their personal choice. Most of the people whom aren’t successful aren’t successful despite their best efforts, not because of a lack of trying. Take a look at the number of people who have tried their asses off and gotten nowhere compared to the number of people who have tried their ass off and succeeded. No, it’s my contention that success is far more often given, and failure far more often forced and yet capitalists expect you to have equal culpability either way.

    These people think those who live within the freedoms of capitalism, free enterprise and free will, live under the consequences of their own decisions, not their governments. That’s the way it should be and how it’s very much not. If my decisions affected my life as I had intended, I’d be sitting high atop trump tower by now. It’s plain ignorance of the truth being that you are not in control of your own destiny that leads these idiots to enforce their views upon the rest of us without regard to the consequence. You can’t, for example, just “get a job”. Someone has to be willing to give it to you. Your lack of money for the right clothes, for example, may keep that from happening. You hear it all the time… “well, if he’d have done such and such then he’d be able to afford the right clothes” but that’s a bullshit argument in every possible way. We are culpable for the decisions we make, as we should be, but if those decisions were modified by others, we are not to blame, nor to be given credit.

    People who are anti-capitalism are “immoral… probably criminals”?!? Wow, dude you sure picked an appropriate title for your response. I did, in fact, see a dick.

    Ok, someone else rant now.

    I’m back as the title clearly states. I didn’t really go anywhere, but I’ve been so busy the past few months it seemed that keeping my site up was the easiest part of my routine to eliminate to ease the tension. The people who know me know things around my place have been difficult recently and I’m working overtime to keep things moving.

    I haven’t been up to anything too terribly exciting, though I’ve got some projects in the works that I’ll be sure to share soon. Right now I’m waging intellectual warfare with someone claiming ‘less watts’ is actually the proper English rather than ‘fewer watts’. Regardless of his clear mental handicap ‘fewer watts’ just sounds better. Hmm… that might be bitterness + beer talking.

    Bitter because my football club is playing for shit this year and, coincidentally, the US Dollar is also worth shit. I swear that new fed chairman needs a kick in the beans. The sad state of our economy can prove problematic for my never ceasing lust for silly Asian gadgetry. US and Canadian money is at financial parity for the first time in 31 years. Gonna be so much harder to make fun of Loonies and Toonies if they’re worth more than our money. If memory serves a few Canadian provinces run budget surpluses though I can’t be entirely certain since I’m not Canuckistani; our great white socialist threat to the north. If this keeps up we’ll be dividing the US Dollar by 1000s like Rubles.

    I hear the Federal Reserve is going to redo the $5 bill too. Goodbye Mr. Lincoln, hello Rich Uncle Pennybags!
