Lenny Bruce

On some uninspired night i was fishing for stuff to post on the blog, about separation of Church and State and its virtues.

While i didn't find anything good (or recent) about it, i did a sketch of Lenny Bruce, and the theme is how a Democratic State functions. Listen to it if you haven't ... this guy is as contemporary as it gets.

This is the XXI Century

'Amanda Donaldson is a former employee of Eldorado Chiropractic, a “Christ-oriented office,” in McKinney, Texas. Her claim is that upon her employer’s discovery that she is an atheist he became discontent and immediately displayed animosity toward having an atheist working within his business. Soon after this information came to light Amanda had to take time off from work due to breast cancer surgery and rehabilitation. She further claims that on her first day back to work she was fired and the main cause behind it was her lack of belief.'

Full article on

The Examiner

One thing pops in my mind when i read the article which is... what if this exact situation happened because someone was gay / black / (insert minority here)

Just because we choose to think that there is no God, should we be fired from our jobs and shunned? This is a civil liberties issue and freedom of thought issue... i don't even know where to begin ranting

Wait, i do. Found this 'Motivational Poster' on

This is a start : )

I was mistaken

2 posts back i ranted on about how wonderful Zeitgeist movement was because it negated religion, nations etc etc. I'd like to say that i still think those distinctions arent useful any more on the XXI century, and that our progress depends on changing our perspective on those things

So i went off and read 2 pdfs which you can download from the site:

Ok in a nutshell, what the 'leader' of the movement wants to do is.

Remove law
Remove currency
'A Resource-Based Economy utilizes existing resources rather than commerce. All goods and services are available without the use of currency, credit, barter or any form of debt or servitude.'
Eliminate democracy 'In a Resource-Based Economy, people do not make decisions; they arrive at them through the use of advanced technological tools that incorporate The Scientific Method.'
Create some kind of science fiction world where decisions are made by machines 'The delegation of decision making to computers is the next step.'

So... what pisses me off is that they tap into genuĂ­ne concerns which have a real basis to propel this kind of idealistic, fairytale agenda. I feel like i've been fooled by a pseudo-communist sect that insults everything i believe in.

Good riddance Zeitgeisters!

Ok, heres the setting.

'The Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) was an American committee formed in 1985 by four women: Tipper Gore, wife of Senator and later Vice President Al Gore; Susan Baker, wife of Treasury Secretary James Baker; Pam Howar, wife of Washington realtor Raymond Howar; and Sally Nevius, wife of Washington City Council Chairman John Nevius .'

'The PMRC claimed that the change in rock music was attributable to the decay of the nuclear family in America.[1] Gore asserted that families are "haven[s] of moral stability" which protect children from outside influence, and that without the family structure rock music was "infecting the youth of the world with messages they cannot handle.'

'As a method of combating this alleged problem, the PMRC suggested a voluntary move by the RIAA and the music industry to develop "guidelines and/or a rating system" similar to the MPAA film rating system. Additional suggestions from the PMRC that appeared in an article in the Washington Post included: printing warnings and lyrics on album covers, forcing record stores to put albums with explicit covers under the counters, pressuring television stations not to broadcast explicit songs or videos, "reassess[ing]" the contracts of musicians who performed violently or sexually in concert, and creating a panel to set industry standards.'

There was a Senate hearing about this issue and Frank Zappa, a partidarian of free speech, participated in several television shows to support the opposing position.
The following video is extracted from an interview in CNN's Crossfire.

Frank lives forever!

It's Just a Ride

Bill Hicks. Listen and think.
Then click on the link with the big globe


I found this a little by chance, but politically i think i agree with it... its a little like John Lennon's song 'Imagine all the People'

'The Zeitgeist Movement is not a political movement. It does not recognize nations, governments, races, religions, creeds or class. Our understandings conclude that these are false, outdated distinctions which are far from positive factors for true collective human growth and potential. Their basis is in power division and stratification, not unity and equality, which is our goal.'
