The current conspiracy theory overheard on overnight talk radio, perhaps on Coast to Coast AM, or possibly, Midnight in the Desert, is that George Orwell was a time traveler from the future, who was stranded here, and then wrote 1984 as a desperate attempt to save us from our selves and consequently save his ‘future’ self from having to make this trip in the first place and, thus, getting marooned here in this seedy version of “tempus contemporary” . Complicated? Maybe. But there are no paradoxes on overnight talk radio.
Mark Bryan’s, “The Ride“, could be the cover art for that still undiscovered final Robert A. Heinlein juvenile book. It is, however, safe to say that artist Bryan’s politics and those of author Heinlein’s could be a bit at odds.
Robert A. Heinlein quotes.
“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.”
“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
“There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.”
“Progress isn’t made by early risers. It’s made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.”
Pierce Brosnan – “The World Is Not Enough”
Hollywood Elites. If walls and fences and ID Cards and Invitations and guns are immoral, then why do you have so very many of them at your very own Oscar Event? Are you all racists? Or do you just hate all those deplorable unwashed people out there that just really want to see what the Red Carpet looks like. After all, those are the people that do the jobs you don’t want to do and support the economy that keeps you in booze, babes (or boys), big houses, big boats, big cars, big egos, and big drugs. Tear Down Those ‘Effing Walls, Oscar!!
