  • Vonnegut

    I always got a kick out of that common blurb on the back of Mike's books saying he was "superior in style" to Vonnegut. Hell, Mike's superior to Vonnegut in every way! But, this is a real good piece Vonnegut wrote recently. Thought you might find it interesting...

    Wow, thanks for that link, AriochRIP. It's an excellent piece. I particularly loved this:

    "We’re spreading democracy, are we? Same way European explorers brought Christianity to the Indians, what we now call 'Native Americans.'

    "How ungrateful they were! How ungrateful are the people of Baghdad today...

    "[George W Bush] and his cohorts have as little to do with Democracy as the Europeans had to do with Christianity. We the people have absolutely no say in whatever they choose to do next. In case you haven’t noticed, they’ve already cleaned out the treasury, passing it out to pals in the war and national security rackets, leaving your generation and the next one with a perfectly enormous debt that you’ll be asked to repay.

    "Nobody let out a peep when they did that to you, because they have disconnected every burglar alarm in the Constitution: The House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, the FBI, the free press (which, having been embedded, has forsaken the First Amendment) and We the People."
    "Wounds are all I'm made of. Did I hear you say that this is victory?"
