sounds like the logic they used in medieval times to incriminate witches so they could burn them at the stake...

hree is a joke!

A man hears knocking at the door, so he gets up and opens the door. Standing there is a snail, snail says "hey can i talk to you for a second?", the man picks up the snail and throws it and yells "get the hell outta here!". Three years later the man hears a knocking on the door, opens it up, and the snail says "what the heck was that all about?"

i swear i have told that joke to everyone... no one has laughed. i read it once and i havn't stopped laughign for 3 days. what gives!

i want a i hate new york shirt
That reminds me, of how when I went to Senegal last year, the two most popular people were:
1. Madonna
2. Osama bin Laden

That is based on the stickers people had on their vans or cars there. I thought the mixture was pretty interesting. Also, New York is a pretty popular city judging by the T-shirts there.

A few hours ago I was writing up a new Rwanda thread for the forum here, on the laptop on the way back on the plane from Miami, which I will post sometime between now and the anniversary date of the genocide, which is April 10th.

"It would be the bugle of retreat, it would be echoed and repeated from every minaret in Iraq: the coalition forces have decided to take the first step backwards."

-Senator John Warner voicing his disapproval of a resolution in the Senate calling for a troop withdrawal from Iraq by April 2008.

I found this quote interesting because of the word "minaret" by Senator Warner. His choice of words is an admission that the U. S. presence in Iraq is a Crusade against Islam, which he supports.

Dude, it would be just brilliant to see u get hired as one of the primary presidential speech writers. What works of art u shall create!

"I think it is fair to all soldiers that all share the burden equally"

-Defense Secretary Robert Gates 20070411 announcing that soldiers would have their tours extended in Iraq from 12 months to 15 months.

The wording of the quote was interesting to me because of the phrase "all share the burden equally". If it were really true then Gates would go to Iraq himself and spend 15 months on patrol looking for Muslims to kill. President Bush should send his daughters there for 15 month tours, in some really dangerous areas. And the Congressmen and Americans who supported the war should be sending their sons over to Iraq to kick Allah's ass. I don't see why there is a shortage of soldiers when millions of people supported the war, and still after all this the majority of the Congress continues to support it.

When Gates said he wants all to share the burden equally, it was a very small "all".

It 's funny to see the only criticism of this conflict coming from the survivors of dead soldiers. When they're alive, their families support it; when their son dies, families start to question what happened and why. Too little. too late folks.

George Bush 20070605

"The people of the Czech Republic don't have to choose between being a friend of the United States or a friend with Russia. You can be both. We don't believe in a zero-sum world."
-president Bush in Czechoslovakia

Does this mean the former statement by Bush made 2001-09-20: "Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists." was not true?

'lurkie, you are a man of ideas.

Why don't you run for public office. I'd bet that you would have a blast.
