Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

First they came for the Muslims...

... preventing them from praying on aircraft...

then they came for the Jews.

That's what bigotry and hate lead to. if you have an AIPAC going around sowing bigotry and hatred against Muslims, eventually some of that is going to land right back in their laps. Pots calling kettles black rarely works out well...

C'mon, the heathen were taken of the plane for the safety of the real Christian folk on the plane. If The God of Real American Christian Folk is in a foul mood (and let's face it things aren't exactly going His Way these days, what with Mel Gibson having to apologize and the Kansas Board of Education losing all of its Intelligent Designers...even The Pope has been somewhat mellow) and gets in one of those smitin' snits He's fond of, there's no telling what sort of calamity might follow.
Just as He's hearing all of them Real Christian Prayers about having a safe and smooth flight and please don't lose my luggage and then He hears some heathen gibberish...boom! there goes Flight 2694 Real Christian Folk and all. Hell, I bet that's the real reason the commuter plane went down in Kentucky, heathen prayers!

Who could ever argue with Real Christian Folk logic like that?

The most radical revolutionary will become a conservative the day after the revolution.

BBC, you often make some pretty pithy comments here. Is it your statement that revolutionaries stop their dreams as soon as they obtain power? (OK - I admit that's a generalization, and those are always suspect, but let's keep this metaphysically speculative.)

Is political revolution only about power or is it about change? When does change stop? Should it stop? Is it valid to believe entropy, or analogous processes, exists in disciplines other than physics?

I may no longer travel by airplane. The current restrictions prohibit my vials of Holy Spaghetti Water, which are required for safe travel. With a few little whimpers, The Republic has perished.

Unfortunately it's a long swim back home to Antarctica, so it appears that for my annual migration, I will need to ditch my tin of holy herring and fly without the Great Penguin's assistance. Not that the Great Penguin really bestirs himself to assist anyhow, he's too busy slumbering from his last big mean of herring :-(.

This is assuming that the State has not by that time classified all penguins as potential terrorists and put them on the no-fly list of course. And that the airline crew doesn't evict me for being an obvious penguin in the midst of a band of hairless feces-flinging hooting howling chimpanzees.

It is a matter of time before a free nation becomes so plauged with rules and regulations that the nation falls into tyrany.

Lurch... I'm not into metaphysically speculative.

Revolutionaries CHANGE their dreams as soon as they obtain power.
