Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshiping.

Has it ever struck you … that life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going? It’s really all memory … except for each passing moment.

HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Voter Apathy And Turnout At Historic Lows

Republican consultant and operative Paul Weyrich once said, “I don’t want everybody to vote. Our [GOP] leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down

In other words, oppositional, obstructionist Republicans and the Tea Party’s plan to intentionally break and gridlock the government is paying off. Voters who are hard pressed to even name the Speaker of The House or his political party (John Boehner R-OH) have fallen for the “both parties are to blame” meme and have opted out of the political process

While turnout for both parties is at historic lows, it should be noted that for congressional elections, the older, whiter and disproportionately male base of the Republican Party still has a greater participation rate (twice the rate) than Democrats. These are the Second amendment gunservatives and pro-Hobby Lobby (anti-choice) voters who reliably cast their ballot for Republicans
