    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteWe must annex those people. We can afflict them with our wise and beneficent government. We can introduce the novelty of thieves, all the way up from street-car pickpockets to municipal robbers and Government defaulters, and show them how amusing it is to arrest them and try them and then turn them loose -- some for cash and some for ''political influence.'' We can make them ashamed of their simple and primitive justice. We can make that little bunch of sleepy islands the hottest corner on earth, and array it in the moral splendor of our high and holy civilization. Annexation is what the poor islanders need. ''Shall we to men benighted, the lamp of life deny?''

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteThere are so many hammocks to catch you if you fall, so many laws to keep you from experience. All these cities I have been in the last few weeks make me fully understand the cozy, stifling state in which most people pass through life. I don't want to pass through life like a smooth plane ride. All you do is get to breathe and copulate and finally die. I don't want to go with the smooth skin and the calm brow. I hope I end up a blithering idiot cursing the sun - hallucinating, screaming, giving obscene and inane lectures on street corners and public parks. People will walk by and say, "Look at that drooling idiot. What a basket case." I will turn and say to them "It is you who are the basket case. For every moment you hated your job, cursed your wife and sold yourself to a dream that you didn't even conceive. For the times your soul screamed yes and you said no. For all of that. For your self-torture, I see the glowing eyes of the sun! The air talks to me! I am at all times!" And maybe, the passers by will drop a coin into my cup.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote"Hi. You know with everything going down in West Palm Beach, and the holidays right around the corner I couldn't think of a better time to share one of my favorite children's classics, it's called: "How the Grinch Stole the Election". And ah--I'd like to read it to you now, shall we?



Every Jew down in Jew-vile liked elections a lot,

But the Grinch who lived over in Austin did not.

I know they'll be voting for Gore, he was thinking,

By Wednesday--the latest--I'll be back to my drinking.

Election Day came and the voting was close,

At one point the Grinch even started to boast,

'It's the Grinch by a nose!' all the newsmen exclaimed,

Even Dan Rather who was clearly insane.

But was he the winner, hey not so fast--

Al Gore called him up and said, "Grinch, kiss my ass!"

The race was too tight to say who was elected,

The Grinch was so stressed his face got infected.

All eyes turned to Jewville to sort out the mess,

But Hyman and Hershel and dear old Aunt Bess,

Were too senile to vote for the one that they liked,

They poked the wrong hole and joined the Third Reich.

The Jews down in Jewville took to the streets,

To complain about fraud, not to mention the heat.

The Grinch said something that couldn't be gosher,

'This election my friends, is perfectly kosher.'

Then a judge ruled each vote should be counted by hand,

The Grinch said, 'That's not what my brother Jeb had planned.'

His lawyers filed motions and junctions and writs,

Demanding that Gore and the Jews call it quits.

But just when the Grinch thought the deal had gone through,

He met Cindy Lou Lipshitz, age 92.

'Why?' she cried, 'Did you steal our election?'

The Grinch just laughed and gave her a lethal injection.

They say the Grinch's ego grew 3 sizes that day,

Unfortunately his brain went the opposite way.

So here's a lesson for now and for later,

Donít blame me-- I voted for Nader!"
