Psuedo Going Galt

Not quite a classic "going Galt" scenario, but part of going Galt is the concept of giving up on the system that has become corrupted beyond logic and reason.

I've certainly felt screwed by the recent economic depression and have many times wondered how I could screw them back. I've not stopped paying my mortgage, but I did take their money during unemployment and now I'm depriving them of tax revenue by earning less money.

Well... off to work, because I haven't completely thrown in the towel. I'm just waiting for 2012 to once again cast a vote for reason.

Phillip Marlowe's type.

"She likes you." Randall said, like a polite FBI man in a movie, a little sad, but very manly. "Her old man was as straight a cop as ever lost a job. She had no business taking those things. She likes you."

"She's a nice girl. Not my type."

"You don't like them nice?" He had another cigarette going. The smoke was being fanned away from his face by his hand.

"I like smooth shiny girls, hardboiled and loaded with sin."

- Farewell, My Lovely by Raymond Chandler
