Why? Is there a chapter on shitheads in there?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

This statement is certainly not in line with what Siddhartha was trying to reach.

No, there is a chance for the white elephant with six white tusks though.

No, it had to do with your other thread where you asked if we could have two weeks without political posts on OT. I had replied that we could be like MBWorld OT and "and talk about zit cream, who is "hot", why folks can't get dates, does the collar on the polo shirt stay up all the time, why X was banned at BWOT, does this watch make me look rich, or what classes to take in Freshman year."

It was a continuation of that comment.
