"There's a formless anger out there."

"Children with autism live near freeways."

"The world is laughing at us."

"The current government is a vile, despicable, tyrannical socialist machine."

The only formless anger out there is coming from one guy sitting in a house of white and it makes him very formlessly angry.

John Lynch said...

Freeways? What?

Maybe the point is that since most of us live in cities most of us live near freeways, so that most people with autism live near freeways?

Or just that correlation is not causation.

Children with autism live near freeways. Uh huh.

And adults with OCD like to wash their hands.

Truth, the mother of hatred; anger, one of the symptoms.

I think "there's a formless anger out there" because "the world is laughing at us" since "the current government is a vile, despicable, tyrannical socialist machine" that believes "children with autism live near freeways."

That last one is the give-away:

Aptly, all those short quotations excertpted from the Sunday morning talking heads form a Crackophony.

"The world is laughing at us."

I love this one. Somehow we're all supposed to live our lives and govern our country so that "the world" won't laugh at us.

I have heard a lot of laughter the last two years though.

I just looked up that study on autism. The sample size was really small - 300 children and didn't seem to control for other factors.

* What if the child doesn't live 1000 ft near a freeway but spends time in child care that is?
* How many hours a day need to be spent near a freeway to increase risk?
* What about prenatal? Does it matter whether the mother works near a freeway?

It comes across as an anti-pollution screed.

Who made the claim about autism?

Love the drawing of George Will, by the way.

john bord said...

Talking heads.... that they are.... has any body checked to see if the grey matter has functional cognitive powers or just regurgitation powers.

Here's a post that casts a critical eye on the autism-freeway link.

Every child in L.A. has autism?

This is why I won't have kids. They are simply too powerful to have around. They force us into submission at every turn. Wait till they see the debt we left them. Children of Corn get behind the wheel. It's gonna be Armageddon. No, seriously, for real this time.

They just noticed? That's what comes from dismissing all those tea party demonstrations as Astroturf, which is, in turn, what comes from relying on Astroturf to manipulate the media. After a while you don't recognize real grass roots anger when it waves signs in your face.

AST said...

Hmm. Formless . . . Anger
I hope it's not . . . God's anger, 'cause I remember reading about a city called Bam in Iran where thousands of people were killed in an earthquake, and the Iranians have it on good authority that the earthquake was the will of God. Yet, they did nothing to change. I'd hate to have formless anger directed at me.

'Cause the results could (wv:) strackic.

The Lefties are always angry. These days they're angrier because fewer people believe the class warfare rap and how government is good for us.

Quayle said...

The sales department has been running the company and production has ground to a halt.

And now the sales department doesn't know why the customers are so unhappy and thinks all that needs to be done is a new ad campagne.

The problem is that the idiot sales department doesn't know how to run a company.

David Byrne is angry at animals. And why not?

I’m mad...and that’s a fact
I found out...animals don’t help
Animal think...they’re pretty smart
Shit on the ground...see in the dark.

They wander around like a crazy dog
Make a mistake in the parking lot
Always bumping into things
Always let you down down down down.

They’re never there when you need them
They never come when you call them
They’re never there when you need them
The never come when you call them down down down

I know the animals...are laughing at us
They don’t even know...what a joke is
I won’t follow...animal’s advice
I don’t care...if they’re laughing at us.

They’re never there when you need them
They never come when you call them
They’re never there when you need them
The nevere come when you call them down down down

They say they don’t need money
They’re lvinign on nuts and berries
They say animals don’t worry
You know animals are hairy?
They think they know what’s best
They’re making a fool of us
They ought to be more careful
They’re setting a bad example
They have untroubled lives
They think everything’s nice
They like to laugh at people
They’re setting a bad example
(go ahead) laugh at me.

David Byrne is angry at animals. And why not?

There is an animal conspiracy to get humans.

“It’s been percolating for years,” Bedore said last week speaking over the telephone from his Minnesota home. “If humans are evolving, animals are probably evolving and their awareness of us making hats out of them is also evolving. It’s not some freaky thing, it’s just survival.”


“It’s important to let people know about this conspiracy,” Bedore said. “I believe animals hate capitalism. Again, it’s a very sound evolutionary concept. If Freud is right and it’s all about sex, who gets to do all the mating in the animal world? The alpha male — he’s the powerful one, the aggressive one.

Be careful out there.

Anger with soundtrack

A commenter named Quayle spells it "campagne"?

Unintentional humor is the best.
