Just wait until after you graduate and you’ll find out that employers don’t even want competant employees who are talented and have the skills and knowledge, instead, they want people of specific race, age and gender in order to furfill the government’s dictoral demands for diversity in their workplaces. It just shouldn’t matter what a person’s race, age, sex, religion, national origin or even sexual preference in being considered for a position, what should matter, and the great Martin Luther King said, ‘is the content of a person’s character and not the color of their skin,’ and yet, because of Affirmative Action, the reverse is the policy, which is unfortunate.

t is the same type of hypocritical attidute that has been going on in the civil rights movement. They don’t even believe in the same values that their leaders advocated.

d has just taken a turn that this feeble minded inferior racial mind cannot fathom. I will now go do more racially acceptable tasks, such as making a lot of money and buying hyundais and trickin’ them out with ground effects

Hmm. Tough call. They ARE both men. But Bush is slightly paler so I guess you’re right.

t does their skin color or gender have to do with anything? MLK asked that same question back in 1963. I would vote for Colin Powel in a second if he ran for president, and it has nothing to do with his skin color or gender because its not relevant, which is what MLK said. But Gore is a big dope and he looks like a third basemen.

sed and overwhelmed with all the burdens of being an oppressed white male and all, but maybe it would be helpful if you left the quotes of the previous messages in your mail so you can remember what we’re talking about.


Please for the love of god, harrass this idiot to all means necessary.

i love you

Hi.

Sometimes, I don’t have anything important to say in words.

So, I make things for you; my dear sweet reader. I heart you.

Follow the link for my post of today. Remember, sound is important.

A MESSAGE FROM ELLE

Thanks,

Also I heart Diana. Hi Diana.

fuck with me and i'll fuck with you  --  ozzy (12k image)It was maybe two weeks ago. Emily and myself went to Toys R Us on the Pike to get a Birthday gift for Bill. We got out of the car in the parking lot to a man who was just getting rolling his cart in to a nearby spot where a car should park. I looked at Emily in a “one eye up” kind of expression. Emily said politely to the man, “Perhaps someone will want to park there.” In other words, move your fucking cart back to where you found it, assmunch. The man just shuged and looking pist as shit started pushing his cart back in the direction of the store. Not even after two steps he saw both of us going in the same direction. He then had the balls (hardly, and yes a poor choice of words) to ask us to roll the cart back to the store because we were going in that direction as well. #1 FUCK YOU. #2 With all due respect, you looked Middle Eastern to me and in a situation like this, it’s not gonna help you. Hell, maybe you weren’t Middle Eastern. Maybe you werent a terrorist. But to many people you would look like a terrorist. It sucks, but that is just the way it is right now. I hate generalizing. And I don’t dislike people from the Middle East. In fact I have many co-workers and friends from there that I adore very much. But a lot of the country does dislike Middle Easterns at this point. And cant separate the difference between a person from the Middle East and a so-called terrorist. If I was perhaps one of these uninformed people your ass would had a thick ass boot in it’s hole. You arent helping the fact of the matter. God was I pissed, regardless of the fact that he looked like he was from the Middle East. God was he lucky I didnt spit on him for being such a putz to Emily. God was he lucky he didnt get a fist through his skull if he had said that to a meat-head american. #3 FUCK YOU. So yeah, “an asshole is an asshole,” to quote a wise woman. But an asshole to an ignorant person is just that much more ammo to fuck his/her shit up.

In a more positive side of my life I am infatuated with this John Zorn CD i got last weekend. It’s part of the Masada Series. This time live from Sevilla in 2000. Bizzare as shit that M. Doughty actually played (“sang”) on a CD that performed all Zorn covers. I just cant talk any more highly about this new CD. This CD is good jazz to me. Coltrane and Miles are supposedly good jazz. And it is good. But it doesnt make me think of good jazz. Coltrane and Miles reminds me of jazz. Plain old jazz. Maybe I am ignorant. But John Zorn just does it for me. Maybe it’s jazz to the next level. Maybe i need a list of more interesting jazz CDs to get. I just want to hear more and more and more. And more and more less traditional jazz. Give me more Zorn or give me death. Uh. Or something.

Speaking of Doughty. Someone emailed me this from a recent online chat transcript:

iamgod: do you visit SCUG, Mike?
Mike Doughty: no, god.

Oh yeah, and I got my new frog today. His name is OZZY. Say HI to Ozzy! He’s cute and not as hyper as Skuzi. He’s also more transparent than Skuzi. Take him from my office and I will slice your balls off or slice out your overies, depending on your family jewels. Don’t fuck with a man who has lost his frog one time before.
