Wow, you sure showed him, genius

BTW, ogrenutz is one of my P3 homies and he's anything but a liberal. Fine distinctions like that, along with much else, doubtless lost on you.

Thanks Mars. I suppose everyone has to have a label. I'd rather be branded a liberal than a moron, dipshit or dumbass. I guess I'm supposed to choose a side? Succumb to those who want only to divide and conquer? No thanks. Besides the nature of my social values precludes my alignment with either party. I like guns. I think a woman has the right to choose. See, I'm all fucked up. I prefer to be a critical thinker willing and able to call it as I see it. Partisan politics and the two party system is destroying this country. I won't be a part of it.

It matters when promotion time comes around.

Military grunts are not meant to engage in critical thinking.
For example .... "Should I shoot this sucka or not ?"

"I like guns. I think a woman has the right to choose."


Hmm. What if a woman chooses to use a gun instead of a physician?

Oh j/k

Wonder why these generals remain nameless and are willing to talk only to ultraliberal foreign press ?

US generals ‘will quit’ if Bush orders Iran attack - Times Online
Michael Smith and Sarah Baxter, Washington

SOME of America’s most senior military commanders are prepared to resign if the White House orders a military strike against Iran, according to highly placed defence and intelligence sources.

Tension in the Gulf region has raised fears that an attack on Iran is becoming increasingly likely before President George Bush leaves office. The Sunday Times has learnt that up to five generals and admirals are willing to resign rather than approve what they consider would be a reckless attack.

“There are four or five generals and admirals we know of who would resign if Bush ordered an attack on Iran,” a source with close ties to British intelligence said. “There is simply no stomach for it in the Pentagon, and a lot of people question whether such an attack would be effective or even possible.”

You are now on record as calling Rupert Murdoch "ultraliberal". Cool.

Now I just crawl up on the tailgate and grab what I need and then crawl off. No more real jumping.

And the snowboarding during the holidays was a big mistake. My ankle is still swollen, though the snowboarding was much fun.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
