"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."―Lao Tzu

I would have to disagree with that--at least with the romantic types of love.

I put this here, since I recall Shane asked to see the video I mentioned, where Coughlan addresses MartinJWillet. It's not the original video, but it has a lot of elements that he brought up.

It also doesn't sound like something he would have said. I'm calling mistranslation or misattribution.

Yeah, BrainyQuote's not a good source for those. They don't seem to make any effort to verify them the way Wikiquote does.

And I don't see anything like that in my copies of the Tao Te Ching, which is the only thing he wrote that survives. There might be a similar verse that got translated that way, but I don't see any obvious contenders.

My fav Doctor who music is the Peter Davison theme tune. I dont think he included the deleware themetune because that wasnt used in the Doctor Who series.

Also, UrinatingTree's reply to someone else making a joke about "real socialism":

"If at first you don't succeed, it's not real socialism. Then you try it again, but it's not real socialism. Then you try it again, but it's not real socialism. Then you try it again, but it's not real socialism...."

More music with furry art posted, like I remember seeing a lot of ~10 years ago.

Between seeing videos like this, and early/mid 2000s era style anti-republican president parodies like this:


It's been a very nostalgic last few weeks for me.

Already added the Emo Trump song to my YouTube playlist of politician parodies. Bad Lip Readings of the election debates are hysterical, and so are  some of schmoyho's Songify This ones.

I'll share an older gem. :D ROFL


And here are some quotes I really like, other than the one I inserted in my signature, from a new favorite song I discovered, by acoustic song writer Abby Green. It's titled "Statism"

"If we're always guided by other people's thoughts, what is the point of having our own?" - Anonymous

"A lot of people tend to use the term 'conspiracy theory' as a synonym for 'crazy rambling', which I consider a narrow perspective. To me, a theory means just a plausible thing yet to be confirmed or unconfirmed. That being said, let's proceed to the subject.

Questioning has an importance on itself, and it is independent of being right or wrong. Being able to doubt anything is a quality on itself, the only way to be close to the truth (or far from lies) is not believing blindly. Critical thinking is the only way to see things as they really are.

On matters of power and authority being against is the only thing that prevents us from being dominated. That is the importance of disbelief, having opposition, resistance, deciding for ourselves, what we want or not want. Never allow others decide for us what our lives will be."

- one of my friends had written this. Smart guy. Creative thinker! His name is Axel.


"We don't know we're in prison. Don't rattle our cage. Stuck in indecision - we don't wanna change! You can hide in the crowd, but you're still all alone. For crying out loud, you are stuck in the comfort zone! Stupid, selfish, and proud; trapped in the comfort zone!" - songwriter Ariel AZ Alexander (He is a musician I discovered last year on YouTube, during an occasional searching for songs with nuggets of truth in them. I have saved at least 10 of his songs on mp3 by now! :D He's written 2 songs about phony lamestream media, some philosophical songs, and other songs about politics.)
"I refuse your religion. It starves my soul, bringin' hate and division. Thinkin' for yourself will always be forbidden. Well, you are not my savior. You're nothin' but a mere mortal..." - Abby Green

Perhaps one of the worst things about the Trump administration and Trump supporters is that they're making people who are otherwise wrong about everything right about something.

Like Paul Krugman:

Quote
One thing is certain: The media reaction to the Syria strike showed that many pundits and news organizations have learned nothing from past failures.

Mr. Trump may like to claim that the media are biased against him, but the truth is that they’ve bent over backward in his favor. They want to seem balanced, even when there is no balance; they have been desperate for excuses to ignore the dubious circumstances of his election and his erratic behavior in office, and start treating him as a normal president.

You may recall how, a month and a half ago, pundits eagerly declared that Mr. Trump “became the president of the United States today” because he managed to read a speech off a teleprompter without going off script. Then he started tweeting again.

One might have expected that experience to serve as a lesson. But no: The U.S. fired off some missiles, and once again Mr. Trump “became president.” Aside from everything else, think about the incentives this creates. The Trump administration now knows that it can always crowd out reporting about its scandals and failures by bombing someone.

Or Robert Reich:



When you make Krugman and Reich right about anything, you know you've done messed up!


No Sovereign but God. No King but Jesus. No Princess but Celestia.

Quote from: Dick Masterson
The middle east is a boat that I dunno, Eisenhower bought? and for some reason... every president thinks that they're going to fix this boat up...
Bush goes in, he's like "all we need is a new shell; and a new engine; and a new upholstery; and a new life vest; and a new tow rope; and a new trailer: that's all we need. that's all we need, and we're gonna do it." so he sends trillions of dollars there. Boat doesn't get fucking fixed.
...
Trump said "I'm not dumping any more money into this boat." Bush couldn't fix it, Obama tried to parley the boat to another boat, Obama tried to get us TWO BOATS! He goes "Bush fucked up the boat that we had, so I'm going to trade this boat we have with a guy I know for two boats. So the odds that one of those boats works is better than one boat working." So now Obama's got two boats, neither of those fucking work. Now we've got to fix two boats.

Trumps whole campaign was "I'm no longer fixing boats" NO MORE BOATS! WE'RE GOING TO FIX OUR HOUSE!
Day fucking 70, what's he doing?, he's eyeing that boat.
We're like "No mister Trump, don't eye that boat, just let it sit in the yard, it's okay"
and he's going
"Ehh... I dunno, I think I could fix that boat; chemicals are leaking out of the tank; they're fucking up the yard; I gotta do something about that" and we're like
"NO MISTER TRUMP! It's okay! Just let the chemicals leak out! There's chemicals all over the place! That part of the yard doesn't matter, there's whole sections of the yard called Africa where there's no grass at all! Where 900 kids die every fucking day because they're not getting water. Ignore the chemicals dripping out of the fucking boat.
...
You know what the best thing to do with the boat is? Trump goes out to the yard, takes the boat, rolls it across the street.
"HEY RUSSIA! I'VE GOT A FREE BOAT! FREE BOAT!"
