Quote of the Day

From Carl Gordon, who re-stocks a supermarket by day, and by night, splits atoms... with his mind.

In regards to what the “ace” is spouting off about, I think the gist of his argument is incorrect: instead of focusing on what Hillary said/didn’t say, he should focus on his own obvious condition, something akin to Asperger’s Syndrome.

With ace’s well documented quandary with truth and reality, over time, his obvious disgust towards existence (check the page design!) forces him into near-insanity and self-hatred. He embodies Sartre's theories of existential angst, and he searches anxiously for significance in all the things that had filled and fulfilled his sorry life up to that point, excluding his convalescence and subsequent medication “therapy”. But finally, he comes to a revelation into the temperament of his being - the troublesomely provisional and limited nature of existence itself, and on top of that his notorious attention deficit.

In his solemn oath to kiss the ass of Boosh and any of his criminally morality-deficient lackeys, he accepts, yea revels, in the indifference of the physical world to man's aspirations. He is barely able to see that realization not only as a regret but also as an opportunity, just like Boosh and pin-dick Cheney. People are free to make their own meaning: a freedom that is also a responsibility, because without that commitment there will be no meaning, not that that ever bothered anybody in the current admin in the least.

This “ace” is just one of many examples of people whose behavior shows bad faith, who are inauthentic: members of the bourgeoisie who believe their social standing or social skills give them a "right" to exist, or others who embrace the banality of life and attempt to flee from freedom by repeating empty gestures, others who live by perpetuating past versions of themselves as they were or who live for the expectations of others, or those who claim to have found meaning in politics, morality, or ideology.

Strong words. Strong, retarded words.
