In which I reject the glamour of evil, and refuse to be mastered by sin

I hereby declare the monkey off my back:

If democracy is a religion (and it is -- "the worship of jackals by jackasses," as Mencken so indelicately phrased it), elections are its principal sacrament. Voting is communion, complete with miraculous Transubstantiation of the Most, in which a plurality or majority of ballots cast are magically transformed into the "consent of the governed."

Upon this rock the entire church of state is built. Every nuance of the perpetual Black Mass we call “government” -- every act of theft, extortion, brutality, murder, war read in solemn tone from the Liturgy of Realpolitik -- justifies itself on the basis of this alleged “consent,” in turn symbolized by the stickers handed out across America to those leaving the polling place: "I Voted!"

Remember - F, VVS, VS, SI and I - the most valuable at the start of the scale.
Platinum doesn't tarnish, and for those with sensitive skin, it is also hypoallergenic, making it comfortable to wear. The colour grade of a diamond is determined by looking at it on an angle and is often hard to determine with the naked eye.

You have to be careful here as the sizing isn't consistent amongst manufacturers. Distinctive and fashionable, baby diaper bags in camo designs are perfect for dad. When our level of motivation is low we are a like a car without fuel.
