The Tao of Spartacus Jones

It's a shame that people who choose to exercise their right NOT to think, don't also invoke their right to remain silent.

Tao of Spartacus Jones

 Turning a tiger into a Lady is a neat trick.
Me, I'd rather turn a Lady into a tiger.

Death to Taxes

In my old neighborhood, they used to call it "extortion." sj

Frank Sinatra sings Antonio Carlos Jobim

Great songs as only Old Blue Eyes could sing them. It doesn't get any better than this. I hope you dig it. sj

The Bad Seed

If you haven't seen this movie, you should. The story unfolds around a little girl who is a psychopath. After I had an encounter with a psychopath, myself, part of my recovery therapy was watching this film again. Like the psychopath in this story, the one I knew was an accomplished liar and manipulator. She's able to read people extremely well, and plays to their needs to convince them that she's just a wonderful person. In fact, she's all illusion. She is none of what she superficially appears to be. I was lucky to escape her clutches without suffering even more harm than I did. She made the mistake of taking her focus off of me and onto her new target. It wasn't until I saw her interact with other people, that I finally saw behind her mask. sj http://www.aftermath-surviving-psychopathy.org/
