If consoling means calling someone a whiner, then Purge is a great comfort.

Truth hurts, don't it?
I need some forewarning next time; we'll throw a GT down-time party. I'll stock up on some cheese, and ATB will bring the W(h)ine.

I like how they don't mention Iraq or the Republicans trying to keep control of the government.

I find it funny that communism/socialism hasn't made the list for the last 90 years straight...




I'm not sure that left-wing democracy" [read: capitalism with back-door deals] has won much recently either... or are the republicans in power?  :slywink:

Canada has medicare (a socialist ideal). It is not perfect, but it's certainly better than getting bills for being sick.

Were there really that many good xbox games to make it worth keeping the old xbox around after purchasing a 360? I guess maybe if you're a bachelor you have more time than there are 360 games.

I still have my old X-Box, but it's disconnected and sitting in the closet.  I didn't feel like trading it in and figured it might be worth it in case I ever get the urge to play some titles that aren't backward compatible yet.

Or when you buy a PS3 and decide to tie them together to form a mass so heavy it rivals a black hole and your house colapses on itself.

Can we say insurance claim?  :slywink:  icon_lol

It is not the fault of the person who points out the crime. A rat is someone who blows the whistle to save their own ass, not "doing the right thing".

As to the harms way, one could state that Mr. Bush has directly put his troops in harms way. As it stands, the AG incident acted as fuel on the fire of an already active anti-american attitude.

Frankly, if the roles were reversed (a country like Iraq) were "bringing peace" to another nation and this got out, the USA would have just nuked the desert into an irradiated field of melted glass. This was a military crime, and it flies in the face of the "we're a morally and culturally advanced civilization; we expect you to change to our standards" that the Us/Iraqi occupation represents. Regardless of how your enemy behaves, there is a need to maintain the virtues upon which you expect others to follow.

"Do it or we'll violate your troops with broomsticks" ain't gonna fly in a media-centric society.  eek It will undermine your footing both at home AND on the front-lines; the fact that someone reported it is merely inevitability; that person was acting upon the doctrines taught by the culture they represent; the same one that was "hiding" the indescretions of their peers.
