Dear Mr Beck

I've never felt the need to point out what a moron you are. In fact, I've been more than content to ignore your existence entirely. BUT WHY MUST YOU COOPT MY BIRTHDAY?? September 11th just not cutting it anymore? Time to milk the rest of the year, one day at a time??

(I'm honestly afraid to click on anything, especially the creepy... liberty snake? Seriously, what the hell is the symbolism there?)

  1. I still think "Mellow Gold" was his best album.

  2. I found the "Here's To You Mr Jefferson" video hilariously ironic, as Jefferson was notoriously irresponsible with his finances. Even though he kept meticulous track of his expenses, he never compared spending with income. Since he always spent lavishly to maintain the aristocratic lifestyle he felt entitled to, he always overspent his income, which resulted in the necessity for many of his slaves and even, eventually, Monticello itself to be sold to pay off his indebtedness.

  3. FYI: Join, or Die is a famous political cartoon created by Benjamin Franklin and first published in his Pennsylvania Gazette on May 9, 1754.[1]. See this link in Wikipedia for more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Join_or_die

  4. THANK YOU for clearing up the creepy snake business! It does look familiar now that you mention it. It's nice to know we're still using political propoganda based on "a superstition that a snake which had been cut into pieces would come back to life if the pieces were put together before sunset."

    Why don't YOU have your own cable show, ms expert on the founding fathers? It could be based on, I don't know, facts? Is that not rabble rousing enough?
