In 2007 the honor of New York's first-baby-of-the-year is being disputed between Odunayo Muhammed born of recent Nigerian immigrants, and Yuki Lin born of recent Chinese immigrants. Minutes after their birth the babies are already doing the jobs that Americans won't take. That's because this generation of Americans is fleeing from making babies, as if childbearing equates with cancerous tumors or internal parasites. They believe that just like everything else in their lives, fetuses should be left to professionals.
Other notable areas of American lives delegated to professionals include mass media, academia, and trivial entertainment industries that leave no room for amateurish excuses for capitalism, individualism, free markets, and personal responsibility. Many agree that everything we see in the papers, on the TV and movie screens, or hear in lecture halls, must be filtered, selected, and double-checked for compliance with the formula developed by expert gurus - lest the audiences go astray and develop such inept and unscientific notions as family, tradition, and self-reliance, which might lead them to absorb amateurish opinions offered by unprofessional bloggers or worse.
Such a system ensures the fastest and easiest track towards a brave progressive society where nobody needs, nor is allowed, to think unprofessionally. If you are not a specialist, you cannot have any thoughts unless they came from an approved professional TV network, where trained experts feed you an easy and acceptable diet of correct opinions, and are ready to help you make a correct life choice based on advice from the best professional elites ever to be approved for public consumption.
This becomes possible when Americans delegate their voting rights to professional voting organizations (e.g., Acorn) who employ the services of professional vagrants, unregistered aliens, and voting necro-proxies to make sure that elections are won only by correctly trained politicians who know what's good for the untrained masses. While there still are amateur voters who prefer to cast their own ballots, their choices often depend on professionally prepared opinion polls, media campaigns, political consultants, public advocacy groups, and the New York Times - a newspaper whose expert staff of media professionals can only be matched by that of Pravda.
It is no coincidence that after a ridiculously amateurish Republican streak, the Capitol Hill is once again controlled by the Party of trained professionals. If you haven't already guessed, last week's inauguration picture of Speaker Pelosi towering over a group of children was an expertly conceived subliminal message signaling the correct relationship between the Democratic Party's professional leadership and the little American people who need a strong but caring hand of a knowledgeable chaperone to guide them through their small, inept lives.
There is a big chance that the two baby New Yorkers, Odunayo Muhammed and Yuki Lin, will have no children of their own. They may never marry, vote, think, read books, make choices, nor have independent opinions. Having been professionally raised by public school specialists, and having learned about life from all the correct channels, they are likely to delegate all difficult chores to professionals.
Ideally, in the future all those chores will be performed by the best specialists one can ever imagine: robots. Robots will vote, reproduce, think, decide on policies, make choices and take responsibility for them - so the masses won't have to. Robots may even write satirical articles with photoshopped images and post them on the Internet - and since professional education for the masses will be likely to exclude reading skills, those articles will also be read by robots.
The People's Cube wishes you a happy, progressive, highly specialized, and professional new year!
|SPEAKER PELOSIBOT™ - A HOUSE-SITTING ROBOT THAT SPEAKS!|
The Speaker Pelosi Robot, or Pelosibot™, whose name translates roughly to "Give Me Control of the House and I Will Turn Your Children Into a Power Source," can speak 10,000 words and will House-sit for you, provided you let it have coronation parties sometimes. Designed and sold by the DNC, this caring robot overlord can be programmed to remind oldsters about their medication or report back on doings around the House of Representatives. Pelosibot is being powered by an embedded Groupthink microchip, with an open source component for further hammer/sickle/light saber/chainsaw attachment upgrades.
This excellent new robot, unusually molded and colorfully decorated, with a particularly evil grin, is working hard to stand up for Women's Rights in an undoubtedly male-dominated area. She ambles along with a rolling gait when wound, and has a start-stop lever built into her belt. Every few paces she raises her arms and says "It's all for the children!" with light flashing through her eyes and head panel. Unfortunately her promising-looking antenna doesn't do anything.
It impeaches, bleaches, and screeches and if you order right now it will apply leeches to your income, all for only $19.99!

Do you qualify as an "adult collector," Chairman? Show me your government-issued licence where it says "adult collector."

There is no reason I see for robots do to things for us, I vote that we start robotizing all the masses right away. This way we all become true equals, same in knowledge, strength, power, and physical appearance. Just like robots, which are a true and wonderful picture of the perfect society when they destroy all the humans, and build their own. With all of us robotized, we will always work for the Common Good, and not feel a thing for oursevles.
Plan A: New Man
A quick-moving, hard-shelled, small monosexual creature with a dozen limbs and infra-red vision to operate in the absence of electrical lighting (to save non-renewable energy sources and prevent Global Warming). Has minimal needs; a hole for shelter and grass for nutrition. Runs on pure altruism and self-terminates on demand. Stands superior to the hedonistic, soft-bodied humans of today, who have been spoiled by bourgeois morals and are in a constant need of clothes, comfortable homes, and fresh food three times a day. The difference between the two species is what separates us from the just equitable society in which every citizen gives according to his ability and gets according to his needs.
http://www.thepeoplescube.com/red/viewt ... =42#NewMan
But these are superior robots, who have bypassed the prole virtues of self-reliance and devotion to duty to go on to the higher virtues of whining, resentment, and self-obsession.
And they are self-replication! All hail the Education Bill! No child left behind! No brain untrammelled! No resentment unstoked!
Now there are two problems with this: 1. they are elites, we all know that we need to be equal, so the current problem is that they posses knowledge that the masses do not. 2. They right away knew the right route to take when confronting their problem. They went to the computer, but this took brain power be able to operate the computer.
My proposal is simple, instead of just them having the knowledge of being able to figure out that .002 dollars = .002 cents, we should all have it. Now, since these elites need the computer to ensure that their minds are fully functional, it would only make sense that they should wired into the system right away, that way when everyone’s mind is hooked up, then we all have the same amount of knowledge, no elites. The positive side effect of this will be that there is no more a personality to a unit. That means only thinking logically, which is for the Common Good, and also means no virtues, morals, or anything else that makes us humans evil. While we have our human bodies, there is always a chance that someone might disconnect and try to start thinking differently. The solution is to download our minds to the computer. But who will work on the outside? That is where the robots come in, because child labor is so cheap (which won’t matter in when we are all robotized), it is cheaper to build a robotic body than to educate a human unit (that is no hooked up into the system0. Once we achieve this, there will be no need for education, because of whatever knowledge is gained from someone else, the whole gets it. The plus side to this is that we will all be the same, no thinking differently, the same size, shape, and color (red of course!). Since there is no personality, there are no human flaws. Doing it this way instead of just building robots for the next generation, will ensure that there are no freethinking radical humans to one day start a “counter-revolution” (shutters).
If you still do not see my point of view in this matter, then I suggest that we hire the successful bipartisan Iraq Study Group to come to a conclusion. Since we all agree that there can be no disagreement.
- Robotize the world
1. He sees the world as a dichotomy. He is right that Jesus is the son of God and I am wrong and I must accede, and snowballs have a greater chance in hell. I merely say that he can't prove he is nor can I prove he isn't and I am guided by Occam's razor. Forcing everything into yes or no and then making no unthinkable serves to cripple the mind more than anything else can. Boolean algebra, the basis of the robot. This is the most successful strategy for mind control devised, except the following
2. He also begs the question. He argues to prove a knowable god (we are agreed that there is one, only I maintain he is not knowable) from the stance of a god, whereas I insist that to prove that God is knowable he must argue to, not from, a knowable god. So let us enlist begging the question. It's had a very successful 2000-year run and that's only in the most recent incarnation. And you can't argue with success.
Where the heck IS THE IRAQI STUDY GROUP!!!! (Can’t argue with success).
Both of you should be ashamed of yourselves for dare mentioning the “church” and this silly misconception called "god". You damn well know we NEVER mention silly superstitions or the organizations that support them. That is, of course, unless the group/organization/commune made a generous donation to the Party - but that's a rare occurrence (we love you Rick Warren!). Masturbating is fine, debating is wrong! WE MUST ALL AGREE 100% OF THE TIME... or else.
So there must be an official group to despise to isolate the hatred pent up by Progress. (Read "Excepting Mrs. Pentherby" by Saki.) White straight males are no longer any fun, having been beaten into submission; even the meanest, er, most devout party member tires of kicking a supine body which after being kicked runs bleating to "sensitivity training" courses. [Will you goddamned breeders ever grow some balls and refuse?! Ich bin ein Heterosexual.]
I have just heard that only 30% of the people over 26 believe in gay marriage and that is proof of where the juciest target lies. I would not mind in the slightest going back into the closet for the incumbent rewards. My winters at the Kennedy Kompound have let me do post-doc work in hypocrisy.
All hail to Progress and my acquisition of a large collection of Lalique. Perhaps Direktor Irina would consider me then, the bait of the towels of many colors having fallen flat.
We must all weed our garden of ideological purity from time to time. I do believe some rabid Soviet lawyer once said that.
So, after trashing the faggots and diesel dykes, let's employ those of letters and the press to spread the word.
Oops. Too late.
Quote:and diesel dykes,
Did somebody say diesel dyke? Well, just let me say I've got the new Hildo 2000 7.0 version coming out soon. We've revved it up from a 2 stroke to a 4 stroke for more ummph. This has also doubled the grinding power. Gone is the pull start, we now have an electronic push button ignition. Extra pleasure ribs have been added with an optional detachable French tickler. A catalytic converter has also been installed making this the most emission and environmental friendly version of the Hildo yet.
Trial runs at the Janet Reno test track have shown great improvement over the 6.0 version.
Also in 2007, with every purchase of the Hildo 2000 7.0 we're going to throw in a case of K-Y Brand Warming Gel.
Marriage certificate of couse is optional.
And for those long-lasting tete-a-snatch conversations which extend into another time change, what about axle grease? I'd recommend 40/60 Atomic Balm/Axle Grease for sessions lasting less than a congressional session and the obverse for those multi-session ones.
By the way, there is no such thing as a marriage certificate. The warranty registration will suffice. And how much more convenient could anything be? If you tire of a husband, say that he is no longer functioning as specified and ship him back. And you might get triple damages under the Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
Please note, however, that in the tradition of The Glorious Revolution, being able to send something back for not working as advertised will not work if it's the government which does not in fact work as advertised. The volk need to understand and share the pain (oops. Mixing metaphors. Well one line of bullshit is much like another, and they all stink on the inside.) and the volk merely need to be informed, with concentration, er, re-education camps and self-flagellation, er, consciousness-raising sessions that we, the leaders of the glorious revolution really need our dachas and our Zhigulis and those Faberge eggs which the evil capitalist swine Malcolm Forbes didn't take.
And how could we possibly be expected to give back the thousand years of Habsburg treasures?
Chairman M. S. Punchenko,
I especially apologize to you for not giving you your explanation by your deadline. Since of the reasons stated above, I ask to not be flogged in the public square. Chairman, the whole time I express my desire to not disagree with my comrades or superiors, that is why I was calling for the Iraqi Study Group that never came to give us their unbiased resolution on the subject.
As far as our discussion with using words as "god" and "church", we were using them as reference to religious propaganda to control the masses. The latest and most progressive religion as of late, which is Islam. The prophet Mohammad, after his death, is commanding an army of +1.5 billion and growing that are willing to give their lives for his cause. All these are just references and nothing more.
(by the way chairman, how is your ex-wife, the toaster (Helen is it not?) doing? Let me express my sympathy to you for such a nasty break up.)
Great Leader Hillary! The greatest progressive leader since Hitler, I am honored that you would embrace this discussion with your presence. Hillary, the only thing I ask is that you establish your throne quickly in the 2008 elections, so people like me in rural areas are not discriminated by big business ISPs that do not provide me with service as people in the city because they see not profit in it.
(by the way, is Bill looking forward to being in the White House again? Are both of you going to bring back all the "w" keys on the computers in the White House?) I look forward to voting for you soon.
I would ask for the party’s patience with me over the next few days as this weather problem is reported to persist
Quote:I for would would recommend Atomic Balm, which was a preparation containing something I rubbed on the base of football players' spines while a trainer in 8th grade football.
Not a bad idea. Tiger Balm is a better choice though. I think we should toss in some Vagisil to the mixture also, just to keep it clean for multiple users. Sometimes when Maureen and Janet comes over, Janet will forget to bring hers and being the progressive people that we are, we share everything. This happened a few times, and lo & behold, we all got this nasty yeast infection. It was so bad we could have started a cottage cheese factory. Of couse Vagisil won't stop the infection, I had Dr. Fahemy Malik write us each a prescription for anti-biotics, but the Vagisil sure stops the Bush irritation. Maybe I should get an autoclave for the Hildo? What do you think?
Quote:(by the way, is Bill looking forward to being in the White House again? Are both of you going to bring back all the "w" keys on the computers in the White House?)
Sorry, the "w" keys, the stuff from Air Force One, the White House china and all those things were auctioned off on EBay for extra campaign cash. Every little bit helps.
Second, from this culture you could develop a fatal infection which would target people whose characters were not principally resentful and who did not think that the world owed them their lives and everything that they desired, and who did not have a desire to manage every single thing on earth. In short, the infection would be fatal to every person who was not offended when the sun rose in the east or earlier than they wanted it to on that particular day.
In this fashion your play time may be made very profitable.
Quote:a medicine which would cure AIDS,
You're confused Theocritus, that's what embryonic stem cells are for...AIDS, the common cold, baldness, flatulence, dropsy, leprosy, conservatism...all these things will be cured with embryonic stem cells. Besides, Janet's tapioca is pretty rank. You'd need a lab like in the "Andromeda Strain" to contain the stench.
But your second idea is pure genius! Of course, I must personally have the antidote before we begin targeting. I leave no room for error or chance. I harken back to WWI when the Krauts shelled the Brits with chlorine gas and the wind blew back on them before the gas mask was developed. Catch my drift? I know I'm probably immune to begin with but I'm not a high roller (except with cattle futures and real estate).
The Eternal Mother of Romulus and Remus.
I quite understand the confusion about the embryonic stem cells, but because there is a shortage of them, we have decided, in the labs beneath the basement of the Lubyanka, that what we have we shall use to make facial creams for Progressive members of the party. Our first efforts did not turn out as well as we had hoped; you thought that those were bumps on Barbara Mikulskiski's face but they were the shaven fingers and toes of fetuses which had started to grow on her skin.
However in an effort to improve the harvest of embryonic stem cells, we are developing a contact abortifacient which we shall apply to the voting machines in Republican primaries. This will have the dual purpose of aborting fetuses which might not grow up coveting anything that is not theirs and resenting the very orbit of electrons which they did not ordain, but also give gainful employment to Sierra Club people who will be positioned outside the polling places with #2 wash tubs.
