By and large, the right leaning people have good jobs, 2.5 kids, a home and 2 cars. Not rich, but comfortable and free to work hard to chase the American dream of peace and some prosperity. They are known as the silent majority. Minding our own business. Voting their conscious. Generally content people.
The left leaners are told the above individuals need to give up some of their dream to those on the left who have less, largely because they don't work hard or are generally unskilled so payed less if they do indeed do work hard. You see them in the streets with signs and yelling. gathered by the super rich who incite them to do so and curry their votes come election time telling them they will work for them to achieve "equality", when in fact after it's all done, go back to their gated communities and sip fine wine.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

Today is the day. It's the longest night of the year and from tomorrow on the days will become longer again. Sitting at home and recovering from a few operations, this is going to be one sad christmas, so I need something to do.
So it had to be something old. Something trhat I had skipped and that has enough content to last a while. After a perverse download of updates (about 20 Gig), I have this now ready to go: Fallout 4[^]. They actually have a suit of power armor (with almost dead batteries), a minigun and a Deathclaw to get a level 2 character to get started and have some fun. A small army of Raiders just gets gunned down inbetween
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
