“I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies another this right makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.”     Thomas Paine,    The Age of Reason

Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Oh, how are things going in Venezuela these days?

At Caracas’s middle-class Sambil shopping mall, lines at cashiers reached 50-deep. Carmen Blanco, a 28-year-old accountant, waited to buy a 42-inch flat-screen television she doesn’t need because she already has one at home.

“It doesn’t make any sense to keep my savings,” Ms. Blanco said Saturday. “I’d love to see how things work in a normal country.”

There are no normal countries, Ms. Blanco. Only varying degrees of fucked up.

I suggest Canada.
