From funnytimes BugMeNot:
Can any of you seriously say the Bill of Rights could get through Congress today? It wouldn't even get out of committee. -- F. Lee Bailey
Revolution, n. In politics, an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment. -- Ambrose Bierce

The Meatrix is a Matrix takeoff comparing that world to the takeover of the family farm by huge corporate factory farms. Well done Flash animation. For background, read John Robbins' Diet for a New America.

Saw Matrix Revolutions yesterday afternoon. Intense. Nice ending. Ignore the critics; they think too much. Go and just have a good time.

I am sorry, but some square headed jerks in a blue shirts start waving guns around a bunch of children who are just going about their business at school, and it is reported that parents are "questioning the wisdom of police tactics"? Questioning the wisdom of police tactics? To quote that wit and sage Eddy Murphy, get the fuck outa here. I would be looking for some heads-on-spikes if a child of mine was subjected to that sort of treatment. How this incident has not resulted in angry mobs in the streets throwing rocks is beyond me. What does it take to really piss these people off?

I answered the Political Compass questionnaire. Some of the questions had no proper answers. The test itself has a marked socialist bent. I scored near the middle of the right libertarian quadrant, less libertarian than I expected, but about as far right.

Economic Left/Right: 5.62
Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.28
I recorded my result at Tim Lambert's Political Compass Survey page. Perry de Haviland's Samizdata post has further commentary on why this test makes no sense if you're not already a socialist.
