The salesman praises his product. The PR person praises her client. The advertiser praises the Brand. Priests praise God. And, the President praises himself. As a Fool I praise Folly; what more can the world ask?
Liberals Like Christ. Over 6,000 hits a day these rat bastards get. Christ may have worn sandals, but he was no Liberal. They call him the Prince of Peace, but he will come again to turn the world into a living hell. It is all in the Bible.
The very first Happy Tutor, at least of English stock. Tutor's great-great-great-great-great, great-great-great-great-great, great-great-great-great-great grandfather. From Holbein's portrait of the Happy Tutor in Erasmus's Praise of Folly.
Given the depth of Wealth Bondage in our time, I do hope that I can be forgiven for this modest exercise in scholarship. Many are scandalized today by The Happy Tutor and seem to consider him some vile pornographer or revolutionary. He is made to skulk at the margins of society, while lesser Fools sell out their honored profession, and grow rich and famous themselves, courting the rich and famous. Tutor is a Pariah in Corporate Life, not to be mentioned in polite company, hunted from town to town by Captain Blowtorch and the Armies of Compassion. But, really, what could be more conservative and more honorable than to imitate a work of art from the Dark Ages, written (for Christ's Sake) by a Monk?
My humble abode. The beauty of it is that even with the top down, you catch the breeze across the tarmac through the window in the side. With the top up, it is as sporty as any convertible. As you can see, from the inside view, a good Dumpster is clean and spacious. Comfortably sleeps 6. More mobile than a Winnebago, and much less expensive. If you are ever in Dallas, I hope you will drop in. You are always welcome here with Dick and me. Whether rich or poor, our Dumpster is your Dumpster. And if the garbage men take it away, there will always be another, for one thing our society produces a lot of is trash.

In Her Own Words
I have $1 bil and a fucking Harvard MBA. What do you have, little man?
There's a reason that pedophilia was so widespread in the Catholic church. There's a reason why corrupt financial practices were so widespread in Enron. There's a reason why abhorrent interrogation techniques were so widespread in Iraq (and elsewhere).
An artistic (or religious) tradition is the quintessentialcommons. When you privatize that you make art and prophecy an adversary. Inspiration, the spirit of love, art, music and grace, the spirit of the muses, of the daughters of memory, (Mnemosyne) will tear down the walls - as those fell in Berlin. For property too,Lenore, is tyranny, when taken to an extreme. The holy spirit will not live in a bottle. Art is a gift. It is meant to be shared, and thereby create a community across space and time.
As samizdat was to Communist rule so blogs and p2p will be to corporate hierarchy, and their think thank apparatchiks, their government stooges, their patent office, their heavy-handed enforcers, and their perjured corporate media - the unconquerable forces of intellectual, spiritual, artistic, and political freedom. Stronger are the Daughters of Memory than the blinkered Horses of Law.

These guys crack me up. Free music? What will these commies think of next? Their biggest attraction is an outhouse. Stands to reason. Since all they produce is shit.
