What a journey.
I empathize, or feel bad that he feels bad.
I did not say I agreed on the basis for which he feels bad.
Because in general, we have learned that ddt is my arch-enemy and I can 'take him'.

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
Seriously! Can you believe it?

It's a totally non-partison/non-political DUMBASS move to have such lax security on nukes.
But, on the other hand, I personally don't think nukes are all that they are hyped up to be.

Blackwater, Halliburton, Lockheed Martin, yadda yadda.

Morg "Hey, at least someone's getting a job right?" anti

P.s. I was so depressed the other day. An article talking about the Phoenix Mars mission, and the mention that Nasa's budget is approx 18 billion dollars. The cost of Iraq so far (already allocated/spent money) is 530 billion.

Thats 8.4billion a MONTH. thats one MONTH. And thats stat is actually for money "SPENT" that's not "future cost of war" or "cost of treating our veterans with the honor and dignity they deserve".

"I think history will record that a remarkably strong president happened to be in office at a juncture where weapons of mass destruction and terrorism rewrote all the rules of engagement in international relations," Gingrich said. "It will record that the president moved beyond old institutions and developed a new set of alliances."

Oh my god. Wow. "remarkably strong president"? President "hissy fit"? President "fuck you"?... WMD's and terrorism rewrote the rules of engagement? The old rules of engagement were "if we get attacked by a foreign power, we respond in kind. What are the new rules again? Oh, wait. If it's in our interest we will start a unilateral war. How did the rules change again?

What changed was the EXCUSE. The response didn't change. For god's sakes, were in a country that doesn't LIKE us, getting killed every day. REAGAN at least was smart enough to get us out of Lebanon. Changed the rules my ass. Moved beyond old institutions (read ignored and circumvented those evil bastards at the UN and NATO that tried to talk sense into the US) and developed a new set of alliances (yes, dont forget about Poland, and um... Fiji, and errr... um, huh... that hasn't worked out so well).

Ugh...

morg, it's not worth thinking about the opportunity costs of the Iraq war. That way leads to madness.

I can't believe there is ZERO national dialog about reducing the defense budget overall!!!

We spend more than the next 40 nations combined. Why not reduce that to the next 20 nations combined and call it good??

Furthermore, I demand we pull our troops OUT OF EUROPE NOW! OUT OF KOREA NOW! OUT OF JAPAN NOW!!!

He's the only atheist with a voice. Leave him alone.

That is his one redeeming quality. But if I want atheism I'll take Richard Dawkins or Robert Winston if I want moderate religion or agnosticism.

With Hitchens though, for someone so seemingly intelligent to still blindly and unquestioningly follow "the deciderer" based on the logic of "the islamofascists are worse" makes him an ass.

Oh that and the "I'm a former leftist and all these current leftists are wrong and traitorous, um LEFTISTS!!!" speil gets really old really quick. For someone so full of opinions, he doesn't really adhere to the spirit of Voltaire.

I was just thinking, yesterday, that if the Islamic fundamentalists hate us for our freedoms, why did we immediately start sacrificing freedoms when they attacked? Seems like we're giving them what they want. Not an original or timely thought, I know, but I'm starting to feel a lot of rage about it. I was kicked into this mode (again), listening to a story on how both parties in Congress voted to grant amnesty to the phone companies for illegally complying with illegal government requests for private information after 9/11. I mean, more people drown every year in this country than died in the 9/11 attacks. We don't invade countries for their swimming pools of mass destruction, or spirit away US citizens without charge or access to lawyers, or grant government extraordinary abilities to violate the privacy of citizens to try to find people who might plan on swimming. Why the fuck do we sacrifice the principals this country was supposedly founded on for this?


Sorry, in a bad mood tonight.
