Subject: BS: I Want to Be a Dictator!
From: Bee-dubya-ell

Not really. But every time I see the "I want to be a director" thread title I think it says "dictator". So maybe when I see this thread title I'll think it says "director" and everything will balance out. Harmony will be restored. Or maybe not.

And maybe someone will call me a dumbass for starting this stoopid copycat thread. That'd be nice. Nobody's called me a dumbass for weeks. Come on, call me a dumbass. Make my day. My shitlist is down to two names and they need some company.

Sorry, Carol, but there's a nondisclosure clause in my shitlist maintenance licensing agreement. It's in the fine print. It's probably in yours too, assuming that you're running SList 5.0 or later.

But if you're concerned that you may be one of the two remaining people on the list, don't worry. I've totally forgiven you for sending the incriminating photo to Tweed.

ANyone coming out and asserting they want to be a dictator is too dumb to be a dictator, unless he already has his hands on national power, like our E. Dumbya Imperialiis.

as a student of grammar & language, I note that the statement says:
"I Want to Be *a* Dictator!" ...a post which can be meaningless.

now if he wants to be THE dictator, we have a different situation.

I always aspired to be Emperor of the Universe, but I seldom get a vote after I explain my platform.

LOL!! Mick, a dictator?? No, you have a Deep Misunderstandiong; Mick persuades, encourages, harasses, encourages, explains and exemplifi3es, and sometimes even exhorts and bugs; but DICTATE? No, never, not he.

There's a simple reason -- his heart is too big. Dictatorial attitudes require a scrunching down of the heart, even unto a black cinder in some cases. The United States Presidency comes to mind.

BeeDub, you should know that Babelfish is pathetically inept at nuance. For example, it cannot disitnguish between "far", meaning extremely, and "far" meaning a long way away. Your sentence reads "It is spoken (a long way away) too frequently in this place." Roughly.

Laura: You are treading a slippery slope telling boys not to play with themselves. I mean I can understand the desire, but the problem with laws designed hastily is they have unintended consequences. Some of which you would probably deem less desirable than the original problem, possibly, I guess. SOftly, softly, catchee monkey!! Consider the thoughtful self-restraint of the Founding Fathers; they imposed no moral requirements, out of respect for the individual.

Of course you could tell him you thought it was really gross -- that would handle it through sheer embarassment, and no law needed!! :D

Me, I would make a law against making laws that were about more than one subject, and which were of the wrong scale.

One law, one subject. Federal-scale mandates from Congress, everything else from the states and counties and civic units.

Yes, Babelfish's French sucks! But it doesn't suck nearly as bad as what remains of my 35-year-old single course in high school French. That's why I decreed that French shall not be spoken. You may not speak in tongues which your dictator can't understand!
