Clearly the books are cooked

Edit: that was meant to follow the debt numbers, and it took on a full new meaning after following David's post instead heh

I've never been of the mindset that a classic is beyond criticism. That said, who gave that last guy a job? That's not even a review, that's just him grunting in disapproval lol

He was mocking the way Holden talks. I actually got a kick out of that.

NDAA: The Biggest Election Issue No One's Talking About.


It's a Cracked article, so it's funny, but there's a serious point behind it.

Quote:
You don't have to live alone in the woods, reading issues of Guns and Ammo and co-writing your manifesto with beard lice, to be terrified about the state of basic freedoms in America today. Given the counterterrorism provisions in the fairly recent National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), we currently live in a country where the government can pick up American citizens and detain them indefinitely without access to a lawyer or even a criminal trial. That means locked up forever without even the basic protections we afford to rapists and murderers.
"That can't be right," you say. "Such a power would be completely unconstitutional!"

And you're right. Even President Obama said he had "serious reservations with certain provisions [of the bill] that regulate the detention, interrogation and prosecution of suspected terrorists." And then he signed it.

I guess, though I think if you're giving a book a bad review and you mimic its style you can't really expect your review to be taken seriously. Either you're honoring it while demolishing it or you're giving an 8th-grade book review, the literary equivalent of calling it names.

What the fuck. On msnbc they're breaking down the "Flohva" vote; that is, Flordia, Ohio, and Virginia. This channel is a joke.

Yeah that was pretty good, I laughed. Kind of comes off as a good review though in an ironic sort of way. Makes me want to re-read it for like the 10th time.

It's on my to buy list. Have a few to finish first.

Nothing to do with politics, but I was thinking about this this morning: what became of that Horrible Crows live dvd?
