My niece pointed out to me that Clay Aiken had come out of the closet. My response was, "Who?"

She was utterly dumbfounded. I wasn't.

For some you'd have to explain it...

T-Shirt front side:

"If it has an off-button, it is not oppression."

Back side:

"Where's Government's off button?"

"If it has an off-button, it is not oppression".

That's true in that context, and as such can be discarded and disregarded.

For the non-off-button context, and that itself is ubiquitous, it's effect is to overwhelm even the mental-ignore.

Academe pushes it, teaches it, includes it in course-work; it's belly-shirted into the work environment and incorporated into company policies; it's in almost every store, shop, and mall; it's on bumperstickers, street signs, building re-names, junk-mail, product-packaging.

It's not a mere nuisance; it's a full-throated attack aimed on undermining and destroying Western culture.

Hi Kevin,

I'd love to see that quote on T-shirts. Glad you liked it. (If any of your friends ever does do those T-shirts, I'll buy one.)

Have fun at the Gun Blogger Rendezvous. A great part of the world. I've very fond memories of stopping for a bite to eat in places like Winnemucca and Tonopah, and of nights spent by Pyramid Lake, or in Rachel, Nevada. Had some great late-night conversations. (Never stopped in Reno though, for some reason, just drove through.)

Infinite Jest wasn't David Foster Wallace's only -work-, and come to think of it _Broom of the System_ and _The Girl With Curious Hair_ were novels or at least fictional memoirs.

Try Oblivion. Save a tree.

(Then, make that Obama Goatse thing a link indicating some substantiating claim, ya defaming wretch.)
