Going Nucular: Language, Politics, and Culture in Controversial Times

Was reading thee above linked book that I borrowed from a friend when I came upon this stuck inside. Thought it was of import.

There is no cohesive persona. No 'Self.' I am not a defined and static being.

The less you try to control the more you are free.
Change happens despite how you feel about it. Nothing is constant. SLIDE. I know that which I can control and I must not try to convince myself I am controlling more than that.

I want to be immeasurable.

Wow. My friend JB and I have often discussed these points and I miss that. It started with a rather strange obsession with Fight Club freshmen year fo college. Now it has grown exponentially, atleast on paper.
When in doubt, Slide.

Sunday, February 20, 2005 Track Federal Legislation

Am always looking for bew blog-tools and inventions and the like and came across this little peice of US political heaven. Personally, i think that c-span should be a non-cable network and every citizen of the US should be reauired to know at least the basics about our government and what they are doing. But for those who care, this site will take you there.

Friday, February 04, 2005 - Bush plan cuts domestic programs - Feb 4, 2005

Surprsie surprise. He will spend and spend, then talk and talk, and then cut what he talks about and keeps spending on whatever he likes. This what is SO frustrating with bushie. We need education, so ill cut spending. environmental issues? ill give undustry the green light to to whatever they like and then cut spending to clean up their pollution. How can anyone say that bushie is for families, education, the environment, social programs, drug treatment, etc, anything not related to war and profits. It just really disgusts me, and even more than that, people believe his bulshit still!

Some People Push Back

OK. The brewing controversy over a college speaker I suppose is not realy a 'controversy' any more because he was disinvited and will most likley be fired. The college is Hamilton College in upstate NY, which is not far from where I sit. The speaker was Ward Churchill, and his crime: having an opinion, expressing it, and then (gasp!) writing about it. This was quite a while ago, but then the paragon of American morality (thats right, bill o'liely) called Mr. Churchill was of course un-American, and many other things im sure (i really dont listen to him). And then the controversy ensued. Go figure.

We need to re-evaluate where academic, political, and media issues merge and who decides what.
