Episode 30: I Was Gonna Vote to Acquit Then I Got High


What I was saying is drugs are just one method we have to escape, and I really don’t see that they do any more damage than some of the other common methods humans in the 21st Century choose, and I am not just talking about booze and food–I am talking about ALL the ways we duck out on reality.  Endless hours in fake reality killing creatures that never existed with people you’ve never met and calling them your friends  Some people Like have an imaginary friend who tells them will live forever and are SO special you are chose above all others–you know the one I’m talking about.  Or how the reality of your shitty life and shitty job is somehow connected to brown people.  How about spending money on tiny cardboard chits with random numbers on them in the expectation those random numbers will match some other random numbers and you will be obscenely rich?  There is no moral difference between those escapes from reality and tying your vein off and shooting your body up with a cocktail of chemicals designed to give your brain cells the best wet sloppy beej they ever got!


Episode 16: “I Talk the Law on the Law One”


Jury duty is one thing you can do that doesn’t take any real effort that contributes positively to society.  AND it will make you feel good!  If you are the hard core law and order time,  you can put a bad guy in jail!  If you are the peace and love lefty lib type, you can set and innocent person free!  If you Henry Fonda type, you can hang up the trial and piss off every single person in the trial!  Perfect for the sociopath asshole who hasn’t yet committed a crime!  Jury duty is one small step to making our criminal justice system a little better, or a little worse, depending on the kind of person you are.
