The problem with your group O.Hinds is that it is literally the latest in a long line of groups fighting the Citizens United Decision. Of the top of my head you have Common Cause, Wolf-Pac, Move to Amend, Free Elections Now, Campaign to get money out of politics, Where's Our Money and I can find links to a dozen more with a quick youtube search. And that's not counting the individual, democratic, progressive and tea party groups who have released statements condemning the decision. Heck Feingold's whole job after losing his senate seat was running yet another organization against Citizens United.

So I can't volunteer for your United Republic campaign O.Hinds, sorry but they are the back of the line where money and time are concerned as the johnny come lately's to this fight.

Eh, it's fine. They don't require much as a minimum, but I can certainly understand having prior commitments.

Nallar gives it as 1020882, but that, being an automated system, includes words that aren't actually part of the story. We are over a million, though!

I can't drive people insane like Kipper or this 'Kim' person. I just harass people. Twilight crazy

EDIT: I decided a few minutes ago to listen to Einstürzende Neubauten. Thanks Cao for turning me onto this band. It isn't the aggressive blood-stirring music I normally listen to but it has it's own quality. The lyrics in some of the songs give off the feel they are telling a story of sorts. Really good stuff to listen to while I work/write/read.

Neubauten are a very artsy group, despite the aggression (at least in the early stuff which is pretty dated). There's a lot of literary references in a lot of of their lyrics. Very amazing stuff.

The fun part is I'm 0% Introverted. Trope averted!
I have plenty of friends anyway. I keep a small enclave of friends because most people I want to beat to death.

looks like an INFP Luna this time with % at 33-11-33-0, I got ISFJ sweetie bell a year or so ago, but your personality usually doesn't really set until you're around thirty, so i am not surprised.

on a side note, found blood in my Phlegm again, trace amounts like last time, thing is when i went to the VA on Tuesday they said nothing showed up on the X-ray so now I am less concerned. still that's not right.

weird how I started hacking up a lung over the past 30 minutes or so. Now i know how murky must feel.

well on sunday i blew this clot out of my nose, not too big but still the color of a bloody snotty mess. then monday i blew a bloody loogie. went to doctor tuesday, no blood till today, I just got back from starting work again. start a hacking cough, and blegh! bloody loogie again.

i am doing what the doctor prescribed, generic 10mg of claratin and gargle salt water before bed and in the morning, use a saline spray in the nostrils... the thing is i only feel congested in my chest, my nasal passages are pretty clear, aside from boogers here and there...

I haven't forgotten my replies... I'm just really bad at them

Post by Meleagridis on Sat Oct 20, 2012 12:22 am

Open question to the PHCC:

How would you have replied to Boing's nihilistic speech?

As a completely seperate question, how would you try and convince her otherwise?

The Speech:
“Yup. Ploughed good,” she said quietly, simply. “Wasn’t the first time, neither. First time was Daddy makin’ a mare out o’ me while Momma stood by. Reapers got him good. Momma tried sellin’ us to the Society, but I wouldn’t sign so she just dumped me. Ended up in Chapel.” I swallowed in horror. “After we split with you… well, lost Friskyhorn two days later to an angry radhog. Giblets got too many rads, puked up her guts, and never woke up. The others run off. I met those two with a plan to scav some bunker; figured why not? Make enough caps to get out of here. Probably planned on killing me once we found something worthwhile.” She swallowed and closed her eyes. “Then you smashed me good. Doc said you damn near killed me.”
“I’m so sorry…” I muttered.
“And that’s why yer stupid,” the filly countered. “You think my daddy was sorry? Or my momma? Or them raiders? Them ghouls? Was the radhog sorry? Or the radiation?” She gave a little snort and closed her eyes. “Not a one of them was sorry. So why are you coming here askin’ me to forgive you? What’s the point of that?”
“Because… because I am sorry. What I did to you was wrong. I shouldn’t have done it,” I said as I sniffed. “I’m trying to be a good pony… I’m trying to do better…”
“And that’s where you done fucked up. There ain’t no such thing as good ponies. Not a one in the world. I ain’t a good pony. You ain’t neither. We’re all just ponies,” she said as she sighed and closed her eye again, shaking her head. “You just want ta feel better than the rest of us by playing the big hero. Well, ya ain’t. So if you feel like scum, congratulations. You are. And someday you’ll accept that. Then you won’t give a fuck about forgiveness.”

Well, the big thing about Blackjack's reaction is she's being selfish again. Seriously, she's referred to herself 6 times in what amounts to two sentences.

She may feel sorry, but you don't make it all about you, especially when someone is basically pouring their heart out. She was definitely not a smart pony here.

@Boing: I probably would have talked about Priest and Chapel and how even if we aren't all always good ponies, at least some of us strive for it, and hopefully we can make it easier for other ponies to do the same thing. She would probably shoot that down so fast it would make your head spin, but I can't really think of any better examples relevant to Boing. I guess I'd try to explain the difference in being good and trying to be good, and why they are both admirable qualities. I would avoid talking about her problems because I'm bad at that kind of thing, which probably wouldn't help my case at all. So yeah pretty much if I was lucky, I might not fuck it up as bad as Blackjack did.
