Toupee, Or Not Toupee http://thelightcavalry.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/2/toupee-or-not-toupee

 Toupee, or not toupee, that is the question -

 Whether 'tis nobblier on the bonce with plugs,
 To crown the cranium with an outrageous rug, 
 Or to take ointments 'gainst the curse of slaphead
 And by anointing end it ? To dye, to streak,
 No more; and with a wig to make amend
 For thinning of a thousand natural locks
 That make a hair-do? 'Tis a flocculation
 Devoutly to be swished. To dye, to streak,
 To streak, perchance Brylcreem. Ay, there's the rub. 
 
This improves on Shakespeare's :
 
To be, or not to be, that is the question—
Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing, end them? To die, to sleep—
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
The Heart-ache, and the thousand Natural shocks
That Flesh is heir to? 'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep,
To sleep, perchance to Dream; Aye, there's the rub.

On the day of the Scottish referendum http://thelightcavalry.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/9/on-the-day-of-the-scottish-referendum As a Londoner, Ukipper, father of Americans, and interested in the future of America and Britain which are now countries with significantly depraved electorates, I want Scotland, where I’ve often hiked and climbed and may one day choose to live, to become independent. The main effects will be:
1. England will become independent; 59 left-wing Scottish MPs seem to wield decisive influence over UK politics and it will be far more likely that England will leave the EU, a consummation devoutly to be wished.
2. Scotland will be forced to take responsibility for itself, instead of mooching off the rest of the country. If it persists in socialist dumkopfery for a while, a crisis will force a more entrepreneurial future on Adams Smith’s homeland.
A remoter effect may be to trigger a separatist wave all over Europe and the US. Good. Unless the strong Federalism of the Founders can be re-established to rein back the US government to its enumerated powers, it will not remain viable for the many healthy parts of the US to be governed by the diseased administration of such as Obama, Reid and Pelosi.
Today’s vote may have an historic significance undreamed of by the political pygmies infesting our lives.

Confucius he say http://thelightcavalry.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/5/confucius-he-say “If language is not correct, then what is said is not what is meant; if what is said is not what is meant, then what must be done remains undone; if this remains undone, morals and art will deteriorate; if justice goes astray, the people will stand about in helpless confusion. Hence there must be no arbitrariness in what is said. This matters above everything.”
