there IS a new threat to our native graet lakes fish (can you say "exotic mollusk"?), but in general, ther's no fish shortage. I can't see how he might have missed all of the thousands of lakes in the state and will assume he tried to fish at one. Is he an experienced fisherman? Morning and dusk are the best times to catch fish as they surface to feed. If the day is HOT, they definitely hide in the cooler depths. Did he try to catch them by HAND? I find a rod helpful...PS HI! Thanks for the Q! See ya around!
haha. The signs are funny because of where they're at. Like one by campus that says 'Jesus loves everyone' and its shoved halfway behind some bushes off the highway like a second thought. I find that funny for some odd reason. Possibly because my sense of humor is odd. But yeah. I don't like when the Suits come knocking on my door at 8:30am when I've only gotten to sleep at 4am. Not that they'd know or anything, but still. haha. What normal human being is up at 8:30am on Sundays???
haha. It's hardly my home state. I'm from Chicago. I think he may just have bad reception because I have tons of friends that go to IU who are all into that whole music group and do fine. I just laugh at the crazy billboards, but not in a cruel way. It IS the main religion around here, so I guess it fits. I'm fine until the Mormons come knocking on my door and the housewives start preaching about my damned soul. haha.
>>>>>>>have you ever looked into libertarian thought? the thing is, i think anarchy is great, but it is unachievable at this point in time.
Libertarian, as it is often understood in the US, isn't really my primary focus, because it often still allows certain hierarchies to go unchecked. In anarchy, which means no leader, all hierarchy gets challenged. My main focus is being allowed to focus work towards what I think needs to be done, without jeopardizing my survival. In other words, selling widgets or being involved in a service industry that have little relevance to survival, and but is unavailable to me does not come from a justifiable type of society.
While I would like to wake up one morning to find that we have an anarchist society, I don't expect it in at this point of time either. One of the problems of not supporting an idea because it is unachievable is that it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.
Anarchism is a philosophy which certain elements many people practice. Food Not Bombs usually will set up at a place without permits, even when it is required or a demonstration may be held without permit; collectives will develop but their is no leader.
Currently there are movements that are occurring in the world based on anarchist principles. Mexico has a few places in the South, much of it by indigenousness peasants that are constantly booted off land. There are also movements in Greece, and in China.
You ask why I am a Communist. Well, I am really an Anarchist, which is not exactly the same thing, though both groups are do often have people in both.
What I beilieve in is that people who should make the decisions are the people who are in the front lines of production. I don't think it is necessary to have bosses, rather decisions should be made by equals.
I believe that capitalism encourages people to be aggressive to each other, and it encourages people to consume recourses much faster than it is sustainable and necessary.
There are many people whom you may have heard of that have similar politics as I, most notably, Noam Chomsky, Ward Churchill, Allen Ginsberg, Henry Miller, Voltairine de Cleyre, and Emma Goldman, just to name a few.
Now, I doubt I answered your question, but I do hope that you have gained some insight to my thinking.
I suppose for generally better memory more sleep, actually exercising regularly, shaking up your routine, challenging yourself, and eating well are all good for keeping a sharp mind. :) Glad you found your keys.
