He never did that. So, Lori, what would you do, let your grandchildren live in abject poverty?

Frank says "All money is dirty."

Not if it's laundered.

First of all I'll never have grandkids to worry about, because I'm not able to have kids

But, if I could the most important thing I could give them is a relative whose words and actions match.

As I said, there are clean energy techonolgies he could have invested in. Ones that have a track record of being solid business with growth behind them and before them.

I'm sorry, but if you're going to tell me how to live, and demand I don't buy into big business, then it's gonna get me a bit upset if and when I don't see you doing the same.

Maybe he does. I am not privy of his other investments.

Let's not forget that if you have a car you fill it up with fuel that gives evil oil companies money. That includes Noam, it also included Gore Vidal, other radicals that take planes.

There is no clean money. Chomsky's human rights views are more important than some dumb mutual fund.

It seems only our side gets smeared when one of us dies:

Compare this to the glowing tributes to Hitchens and Ronald Reagan and William F. Buckley.

Vidal from 1990:

More fun with Gore from a 1975 edition of 60 minutes, with that snide little turd Mike Wallace:

Damned if Gore didn't predict our economic collapse way back then. The guy was mightily arrogant, but right.

Boy is he right about contraction.

I'd suspect Barber would disagree with his concepts about the term love.

Oh, and Ezra, I know what I told you, but I just wanted to give it a good try first.

I found a place I'd love to visit some day: Newport RI. Very nice. I'd rip down all the Patriots posters, but...

Frank

Here's the thing. I live my principles, and expect those who want to influence me to do the same. I shop for everything but the meat I eat at a local farmer's market, I don't drive, and my living space is no bigger than what I need to do what I do privately in comfort.

If a piss poor person such as myself can live by my principles, how much easier is it for men like the two you mentioned to do it.

It's really quite a nice place. Lots of activities, and a great place to just relax.

What caught your eye?
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

It is certainly what America should start to look like. The whole esthetic is serene--not too big, not too small, looks very relaxing. I'm not big on partying, so the lack of nightlife is no big thing.

I'm all about simple. :)

Lori, if I gave you a million bucks you would change in a heartbeat.

Here's another one for the demon file: He lives in Lexington as well. Woo.

Thanks Frank. Life is an Adventure, as they say.

I'm pretty sure I speak for the majority of my neighbors when I say "Okay, thanks, enough for now."

Actually Frank, you really don't know me well enough to make that comment.

But, seeing as how you did, may I remind you that I've had money and all it offeres a person. And, believe it or not, I still lived the way I do now, but just in a better space.

Unlike most American's, my principles cannot be bought, nor are they for sale.
