"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."

It's not like Rhode Island really matters, but it's good to see this crap get thrown out.

I think my favorite part is where he didn't even read the entire bill before submitting it.

Also, "Everything is terror now. That thing where you go outside and say how fucked up it is that there's all these homeless people, and abused, obese citizens sucking down their daily load of crap TV, suckling at the teat of Mother Distraction so they don't have to look at how inane, trite and horrible their own life has become", that thing. That's terror now.

Trying to find a better way to live is terror.

When your rulers want nothing more than for you to be static, living in fear, that's the final wake-up call.
