Hey, I learned everything one needs to know about false eyelashes!

Concerning yesterday's comments about the lack of fairness in primary elections and our two party system:

A. We do not have a "two-party" system (granted, we currently have two major parties). We have at least three members of congress not affiliated with either major party (One Socialist, two independents). The U.S. Constitution does not address political parties, that is a state function.
B. In CA there are presently 6 State recognized political parties; each party is allowed to draft their own rules for Primary voter participation. For the Feb 08 Presidential Primary, as follows:

There are six parties fielding candidates in this election. California voters who wish to cast ballots in the Republican, Libertarian, Green or Peace & Freedom parties' primaries must be registered to vote with those parties. The Democratic and American Independent parties will permit "Decline to State" voters to participate in their primary elections. "Decline to State" voters who wish to do so must request a partisan ballot.

C. The argument for a closed primary is that the Party nomination should be controlled by party members - not outsiders. Would the local Lion's club let any walk-in vote in their office elections?. Should a walk-in Zoroastrian be allowed to vote vestrymen in an Episcopal church?. If Scientology had internal elections, would they let the local Psychiatrists participate?

D. Anybody can get their name on the Presidential ballot by petition.

Here endeth the lesson.

Another clip that absolutely gave me chills sending me back decades to seeing them do it on the stage of the Winter Garden.

I find it ironic that I first saw FOLLIES in its LA presentation in a spanking new state-of-the-art-theatre - which has now been torn town because it outlived its usefullness (read: land more valuable as high rise tower). It sure was a nice venue for A CHORUS LINE, SUNSET BLVD, and RAGTIME.

Any time. :) Of course, the real thanks go to the people who have these things and post them for all the world to see...and download. ;)

LIST OF THE DAY:

Californians

So as not to be outdone by all the redneck, hillbilly, and Texan jokes, somebody had to come up with this, you know you're from California if:

1. Your coworker has 8 body piercing's and none are visible.

2. You make over $300,000 and still can't afford a house.

3. You take a bus and are shocked at two people carrying on a conversation in English.

4. Your child's 3rd-grade teacher has purple hair, a nose ring, and is named Flower.

5. You can't remember . . is pot illegal?

6. You've been to a baby shower that has two mothers and a sperm donor.

7. You have a very strong opinion about where your coffee beans are grown, and you can taste the difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian.

8. You can't remember . . . is pot illegal?

9. A really great parking space can totally move you to tears.

10. Gas costs $1.00 per gallon more than anywhere else in the U.S.

11. Unlike back home, the guy at 8:30 am in Starbucks wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney really IS George Clooney.

12. Your car insurance costs as much as your house payment.

13 . You can't remember . . .is pot illegal?

14. It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on every news station: "STORM WATCH."

15. You pass an elementary school playground and the children are all busy with their cells or pagers.

16. It's barely sprinkling rain outside, so you leave for work an hour early to avoid all the weather-related accidents.

17. HEY!!!! Is pot illegal????

18. Both you AND your dog have therapists, psychics, personal trainers and cosmetic surgeons.

19. The Terminator is your governor.

20. If you drive illegally, they take your driver's license. If you're here illegally, they want to give you one

They are working on our complex.  The DD is going nuts, he's whiny and restless. If it hadn't been raining for ever, we'd take him to the dog park, but it's probably one big mud puddle.  Why couldn't they work on the complex during the summer???

The Sixth Sense - the Rules and Clues commentary explaining all the neat "secrets" (a total spoiler - but great fun after you've watched the film).

A Murder of Crows - both Audio Commentaries give an interesting insight into the "game" of making a limited budget independent film.

Here endeth the lesson.

der Brucer

(I could've won a million dollars...) I had a feeling I'd be hearing from you, DR derBrucer  :-*

Yes, yes, you've got the facts on your side, BUT the reality check is:

A. I was not that in love with Ralph Nadar but voted for him because if the Green party had gotten a certain percentage of votes (it was like 6 or 10, or somewhere around there), it would have been eligible for some of that campaign dinero -- and then the monopoly held by the Demos and Repubs might have been cracked and America might actually have been on the road to true democractic elections -- and a true three, four, five. etc., party system in the future. (But instead I got burned in two ways -- the Green Party didn't get the percentage and Gore didn't get a bunch of those Green Party votes that otherwise he would have...) Sure, there are all kinds of parties out there and occasionally a Libertarian gets elected, but the reality of it is, America is a two-party system (that's my opinion and I'm sticking to it!) by design, by intent, by historical maneuvering, and by the money factor. So I can be quoted all the facts out there, but I know in my heart it's still a two-party system...

B-C. Sure, the parties can control their primaries and make them closed if they want to -- and sure there can be all that mumbo-jumbo in California or other states as folks mix and match primary rules as they like -- but it doesn't mean have I to agree with it, or think that it's right and above board -- or that I'm naive enough to not know that it all goes back to my earlier point about the historical maneuvering (i.e. that folks through the years have worked hard legally and illegally to keep this country a two-party system while throwing us a faux bone every once in a while...) I'm proud to be an independent and I don't thinks it's right to blackmail me into picking a party in order to be part of the primary process, but hey, that's the American way (at least in Arizona where I'm registered to vote)  ...

D. Sure, I can petition to get on a ballot but guess how far I'd get without the right political connections and that all important dollar sign....(I saw a sample ballot for the GOP primary the other day and there were like 30 names on it and the only ones I knew anything about were the ones with the clot and the money -- McCain, Huckabee, Romney, Paul, Edwards and Guliani -- I had never heard of the other guys who petitioned and got on their names on the ballot...) ...

Love ya, der B, but I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one ...
