UN-AMERICAN, adj., Wicked, intolerable, heathenish.
The rich are the most discriminated-against minority in the world. Openly or covertly, everybody hates the rich because, openly or covertly, everybody envies the rich. Me, I love the rich. Somebody has to love them. Sure, a lot o' rich people are assholes, but believe me, a lot o' poor people are assholes, too, and an asshole with money can at least pay for his own drinks.
"And what do you believe in??" the parish priest asked Amanda sternly. Amanda looked up from the beetle shell upon whcih she was painting a miniature scene in watercolors. "I beleive in birth, copulation and death," she answered. "Although copulation empodies the other two, and death is only a form of borning. At any rate, I was born nineteen years ago. Some day I shall die. Today, I think I'll copulate." And indeed she did.

The most preposterous nation that H. Sapiens has ever dreamed up is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery. Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all history. The second most preposterous ntion is that copulation is inherintly sinful.
Democracy is based on the assumption that a million men are wiser than one man. How's that again? I missed something.
The old saw about the early bird just goes to show that the worm should have stayed in bed.
