But I like it a lot.

I've discovered a lot of exciting music, actually. It's a good time to be my ears.

So I was walking by the Chicago Federal Reserve Building the other day...

...and this is what I saw:

They are "anarchist communists", which apparently is a real thing. To me it seemed a little illogical that two apparently antithetical political and economic ideologies could come together so seamlessly, but I guess it's a little silly of me to expect anything political (or economic) to follow any kind of logic.

But anarchist communists? Seriously?


I passed this while walking the other day:

The United Nations Conspiracy

Monday, October 19, 2009

While doing some research for a hugenormous paper I have to write on the role of the United Nations in contemporary U.S. politics, I came across a gem of a book called The United Nations Conspiracy by Robert W. Lee. As someone who is very interested in conspiracy theories and the mentally sub-normal minds who concoct them, I felt that I really had to check this book out of the library.

I should note, by the way, that there are two quotes on the back of this book. The first is by the author, and the second is by the publishing company (Western Islands Publishers - the publishing wing of the John Birch Society, a conservative political advocacy group). What that says to me is that not very many people have actually read this book, and even fewer people have good things to say about it.

But that's not really the point of this post. The point of this post is that I tried to find this wonderful website I once visited that I did not, for some stupid reason, save to my favorites. On this website were reviews of various academic and non-academic writers, rating them on things such as their objectivity as sources. In trying to find this website again (for the millionth time. Do any of you know what it is???), I saw this:

And it was pretty funny. I love Google. The end.
