The Outlaw Josey Wales


He has definitely gone over the edge now: Josey Wales. Chuck what's that about?

Two quotes from the movie have been rattling 'round my head as I watch the world spin totally out of control.

"Governments don't live together, people do." Josey to Chief Ten Bears when making peace with the Indians for the settlers he had been riding with.

"It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double-tongued." Ten Bears

Nuff said, huh?

Now Clint's movies have often provided inspiration to me. My favorite line being from Magnum Force, a Dirty Harry opus: "A man's got to know his limitations." But the two lines above speak volumes to me.

How about you?

Labels Part II due up soon. I've been busy as shit lately, not having enough fun nor making enough money. Intolerable I know, but life is still very good. Everybody's healthy (making exception for Robert who has a stomach bug kicking his ass and keeping him home from school these two days.)

I have a malfunction in my brain that makes it virtually impossible for me to quote movies. I believe all of that talent (if that's what it is) was shifted to the ability to quote song lyrics...the Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away...

But, response:

"We're sending soldiers to distant places
X's and O's on someone's drawing board
Like green and plastic, with human faces
And they want to tell you it's a merciful sword
But with all the blood newly dried in the desert,
Can we not fertilize the land with something else?
There is no nation by God exempted
Lay down your weapons and love your neighbor as yourself..."

~Indigo Girls, "Our Deliverance"
