live cat soap: good point about chicago, el.
live cat soap: paul krassner told me about that
Elayne: In most cities where the jack-booted thugs have moved in on the Occupy camps, the mayors have been Democrats.
live cat soap: is that a p/nis or is that a nose
Elayne: But most of them are RICH Democrats. That's the difference. It's not Republican/Democrat, the split is between the haves and have-nots.
live cat soap: like kennedy during the cuban missile crisis. had to prove themselves trough
Elayne: Most of the members of Congress are millionaires. About half of them are probably in the 5% if not the 1%.
H Stones: i see that the mayor said they would not tolerate violence, i suppose this does not apply to the pigs
live cat soap: was it someone on colbert or stewart last night who said kennedy kept us from bieng killed in cuba?
live cat soap: uh uh

live cat soap: dex has no memory of such events, but i recall clearly how close we were to universal death as kennedy dithered at last minute
live cat soap: only the brqve choice of a soviet submariner kept us all from being dead now
Elayne: And yeah, that includes a Rockefeller and one of Liz Taylor's ex-husbands.

live cat soap: that's becaiuse you see it as not an option, dex
Dexter Fong: Cat: Huh?

live cat soap: no
Dexter Fong: Attention Earthlings. We have watched you flicks and find them dangerous to the Univeral Mind
llanwydd: well, if I'm going to have a nuclear weapon dropped on my, I need to know the charges against me
