And so it is with cultural evolution. When I was a teenager (think the 1960s), hooded sweatshirts were considered nerdy, pussified attire. Any kid who wore his pants halfway down his thighs would have been beaten senseless for looking like a "homo", and people (of any race) who mumbled unintelligible pseudo-English would have been considered mentally handicapped, whether they were or no.

What Were Once Vices are Now Habits. Or worse. There was a record album (vinyl)by Steely Dan, I think...

I'm sick and tired of seeing things turn out the way I expected. There is no satisfaction in witnessing decay disguised as progress. But few "moderns" get it, or even have the consciousness necessary to get that they need to get it---if you can get that.

And if you can't, blame it on cultural evolution. Or maybe, historionic effect.
You'll get it---sooner or later. I'll bet.But not the bank.

A couple of asides related to Bobby Rush. His own son was murdered in 1999, supposedly the target in a drug-related killing, though I think Rush disputes that. And an intersting non-tragic bit of history: Rush didn't (and perhaps still doesn't) like Obama. The two have an unpleasant history. Obama ran against Rush for Rush's congressional seat in 2000. If I remember correctly, Obama lost because he wasn't black or Chicago enough yet for voters in the 1st district. Obama's stronghold, the UofC-Hyde Park neighborhood, is an island of academics and professionals in the middle of the ghetto where Obama was still relatively suspect compared with a former Black Panther who did jail time and was there when Fred Hampton was killed by CPD.

Kevlar hoodies will be the next fad

Frank, Hurry and order yours.

"Kevlar hoodies will be the next fad"

And then all of the gunzloonz will be loadin' their arsenals with copkillaz bulletz. Just sayin'.

If you don't need a Kevlar hoodie, you can always get one that's not, strictly speaking, defensive, here:


Everyone can benefit from having a judge in their pocket, so to speak.

The "Taurus Judge®" is so named because of the number of judges who carry it into the courtroom for their protection. Capable of chambering both .410 2-1/2" shotshell and .45 Colt Ammunition, this amazing combo gun is ideal for short distances - where most altercations occur, or longer distances with the .45 Colt ammo.
