Because of the need to prepare our income taxes, this may be the shortest issue of the year. You can thank Uncle Assam for the loss of content. Back next month with a regular issue, assuming Uncle Assam doesn’t have something new and time-consuming for us (a big “if” these days). Just think of all the extra work piled onto doctors these days at the point of Uncle Assam’s guns and you can’t help but wonder that anyone wants to be a doctor anymore. The people making all this extra work are dangerous and are a direct threat to our health and longevity. Don’t elect new “better” people who want to do those jobs, get rid of those jobs! OK to elect people who truly want to get rid of those jobs, but watch out, lying is almost ubiquitous among the political class. Example: Gov. Sandoval of Nevada lied and lied about reducing taxes and is pushing for more and more of them. We believe that this man is a true SOCIOPATH. He doesn’t care what it costs to innocent bystanders for him to pursue what politically benefits himself. Something seems horribly amiss, when your political class is populated (mostly) by sociopaths.

Appetizers

Men ought to know that from the brain, and from the brain only, arise our pleasures, joys, laughters, and jests, as well as our sorrows, pains, griefs, and tears... These things that we suffer all come from the brain...Madness comes from its moistness.

—Hippocrates(*)

The brain has to model everything it encounters, including itself. ...In that sense, the self is just a representation maintained in the brain, just like any other representation that we have of objects in the world.

—Jacob Mohwy, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia (from an interview by Anil Ananthaswamy, author of The Man Who Wasn’t There, Dutton, 2015)

To open a shop is easy, to keep it open an art.

—a proverb from the far East (probably China), no date given

(Comment: You have to wonder where it was and when that opening a shop was easy. It sure isn’t easy most places in the USA of 2015. On the way up, one supposes, as in the rise of the U.S. and the Roman Republic, it was easy to open a shop, but not on the way down in the U.S. and the Roman Empire after they passed the Republic phase. Julius Caesar ended the Roman Republic by declaring himself the Dictator, while in the U.S. it happened more quietly because no one was honest enough to declare the Republic kaput. According to the World Bank, the USA is now down to #40 in the ease of starting a new business. There are now more small businesses dying than being born.)

If I return to earth in another life, I hope it’s not during a Republican administration.

—Timothy Leary

[Dr. Leary never met Barack Hussein Obama.]

If we wanted to regain freedom, we were forced to strike. We told the Soviets that you can enter with your tanks if you wish. Then, we will put flowers in the guns of those tanks and your soldiers will sooner or later be forced to open the tanks and get out and get some air. When they are out, our girls will kiss them to death. However. we are not going to work for you anymore.

—Lech Walesa, PEACE 1983

[Ah, it’s the bonobo strategy of peace, trading sex for aggression. It works for the bonobos and it appears to have worked for Poland.]
