COLLECTIVE MADNESS


“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

  5. Never trust a man with a mustache and a goatee.

    Nice music, Anon, but not really from the 60' 0r 70's. But then I guess you can't afford to be 'nostalgic'. The rat might get on you again.

    1. What's an air guitar?

      You just wait till OGF sends me her great stuff!

      Then you will hear music.

      And I'm not nostalgic. I'd take my JD 8440 over a team of horses any day!

  9. I've been listening to this country/western/rock station for hours/days/weeks on end. The lady that spins the records spends half her talk time dissing her ex husband. :) Son of a bitch had a jealousy streak so bad he killed the family cat because it kept wanting to sleep in her lap. That did it, that was The End.

    If you marry a disc jock, don't get divorced.
