Did a little reading on the Our Gang comedies, and learned that Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer was a vicious bastard. He was a sadistic little monster as a kid.

The Victoria's Secret photos remind me of a comment that H.L. Mencken reportedly made to Alistair Cooke about a femininity-challenged leftie protester at the 1944 Democrat convention, to wit:

"Makes you want to burn every bed in town, doesn't she?"

Back in Stalin's time, the Central Planning Committee would draw up 5-year plans. Stalin would push for quicker implementation, no matter what the cost, the slogan propagated being "The 5 year plan in 3 years!"

Now we're looking at the 4-year plan in 2 years?

Apparently Obama thinks that if you can make one baby in 9 months, you can make 9 babies in one month.

That is my definition of goofy, well-intended, ruinous, lofty, "crash programs" that never come close to fulfilling whatever promise the enlightened, more-evolved, high-and-mighty asshats who "lead" us have made to us.

""""""Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer was a vicious bastard"""""

So, perhaps his tragic death by stabbing in a bar was karma.

"Karma" means fate, or destiny - the life circumstances one is born into this time around. Contrary to what the hippie children believed in the '60s, it has nothing whatever to do with payback.

In other words, "good Karma" means winning the birth lottery in this incarnation. It doesn't mean that helping old ladies across the street will ensure that you can find a parking place on Saturday afternoon.

Carl Switzer's Karma was to be born into a situation that guaranteed him childhood stardom while being a vicious asshole who inevitably was stabbed to death in a bar. Maybe the last time around he was an aardvark. The concept of reincarnation gets a little murky about that point.
