    Do not go gentle into that good night

    The Example by W.H. Davies Here's an example from A Butterfly; That on a rough, hard rock Happy can lie; Friendless and all alone On this unsweetened stone. Now let my bed be hard No care take I; I'll make my joy like this Small Butterfly; Whose happy heart has power To make a stone a flower.

    Do not go gentle into that good night

    Hunter Thompson #1 quote according to whizzpast.com: Contained in this quote is the same assumption which bothers me about the first poem in this thread Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night. As elegant as the poem is, it does not depict real life. Both the poem and Thompson's quote reflect a common but false, young man's fantasy about old age. If "life" should be something other than "a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body", It will be literally impossible to "skid broadside, in a cloud of smoke", "and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride", when one is "thoroughly used up" and "totally worn out". In completely irrational doublethink, Thompson confers youthful vigor to old age. He literally cannot imagine what "used up" and "worn out" means, in advanced old age. Similarly, Thomas' poem, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night, inspired poetry though it might be, misses the most basic feature of advanced old age: feebleness and loss of intensity. He exhorts his father that "Old age should burn and rave at close of day"; "Rage, rage against the dying of the light". The young Thomas did his father's raging and raving for him, since his father was undoubtedly, long past doing it himself. I will speculate about what might have been one of the reasons Hunter Thompson killed himself: Once he found out, through experience, what getting older was really all about, he couldn't accept it. One of the truest cliches out there is "You have to be tough to get old". Because, as the harsh physical and mental changes one experiences with age accumulate, one needs to accept, reassess and reorganize one's life to all the new, unpleasant realities. If you can't do that, you're in for a rocky ride.
  3. On angel dust again, lying scumbag? Democrats run candidates of substance and veracity. Unlike the mouthpieces for the plutocracy who appeal to the gullible, such as yourself. God forbid we should run a psychopath such as you have in power now.
  4. Seriously. This makes sense to me.
  5. Sole seems to have faded from the scene, at least for the nonce. Sole is that rare functional psychotic who tries to spread the gospel of his own inner voices; Similar to Nostradamus.
  6. These are the ravings of a psychotic. He said "evolution" not revolution.
  7. Now it all makes sense.
  8. 2000 and 2016, for starters. But nearly any election will do. Now - Watch the whining begin. We didn't cheat waaaa waaaa.
  9. But you break the record. Everytime you win, it's by cheating.
  10. https://alijavedwrote.wordpress.com/2015/04/27/nostradamus-predictions-iran-russia-isis-the-blue-turban-and-world-war-3/ Nostradamus prediction: Very enlightening
  11. No. Because the Republicans can't figure out how to win elections without cheating. Low pieces of garbage like you, in particular.

  13. The EC needs to be abolished along with gerrymandering .... Both legal ways to subvert the will of the people, whoever uses them.
  14. The Antichrist? Heh heh. If anyone fills the bill, it's him.
  15. The Republicans would never have been able to gain and hold power without cheating of every type; Including an Electoral College, which no longer serves any purpose but to give an unfair advantage to Republican presidential candidates. Other ways they cheat are voter suppression of likely Democrats .... Spreading of false info about voting places and times to likely Democrats .... Tampering with electronic ballot boxes; And gerrymandering which, although practiced by both parties, is done far more often by Republicans. The Republican Party is the party of corruption, cheating and eltism. They have ruined the Republic.
