Democrat and Independent Thinker..."The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." -Nietzsche

So I get cranky sometimes. And I get exasperated with some of the echoes in the echo chamber and the escalating attacks and counter-attacks and attacks against the counter-attacks etc. ad nauseaum.

What especially galls me is the less than holy level holier than thou blandishments and those blandished counter with pointing out the less than holy level holier than thou-ness of the blandishers while ignoring that they are doing so in an holier than thou manner themselves.

As the Buddha said, "Be ye a light unto thyself" and as Jesus said, something along the lines of don't point out the speck in your neighbors eye while ignoring the boulder in your own.

I become overcome with the patent ridiculousness and absurdity of it all.
