Oct 23rd 2009 9:02PM "We have spent the last 30 years supporting causes related to peace and justice," R.E.M. said in a statement.
No person wants peace more than a soldier, but sometimes a little something is needed to stop a lot from happening (if Hitler had been strongly confronted early by Chamberlain, France, and most of the rest of the world, there would most like not have been a World War Two.)
To think that this country has not "tortured" people since there was "this country", and even before, would be incredibly naive. Washington would have, and may have, tortured a Tory, if he thought it would help to save New York.
Let them close Guantanamo. I am not usre what the problem is. Put them elsewhere in the US. Why not? I mean some God forbidden place. Are you telling me that we do not have someplace in the freaking desert where you could have a kill-zone for 20 miles out from the prison. If they do escape, they would not be hard to find, in the freaking barren wasteland of Death Valley.
When the CIA was told it could no longer associate/operate with some "bad dogs" in order to catch badder dogs, it had no idea what any of the bad dogs were doing. Do you hang with a cat to find out what a dog is doing? No, you hang with some other dogs.
America has gone soft. No one is owed anything other than what the Constitution and Bill of Rights gives you. Suck it up!
Mar 18th 2008 4:37PM The lack of population control will turn out to be the number one reason humans suffer a tortuous exit from the world's stage. No person wants to make the hard calls, but we are not rapdily increasing our resources, medical knowledge, or the world's standard of living, just our population, and many drains on humanity (crime; air, water, land and noise pollution; warfare, etc..) More people need more, less people need less. Logical, but brutal in implementation. For example, if you save the starving children, the really badly malnourished ones who have been like that way for years, they will be a drain on society, because their formative brain years will be behind them, and those years were less than sub-standard. One African leader said they, the saved ones, were little more than zombies in his country, with such low mental capacity as to drain the nation, keeping the country continually poor, ecnomically, spiritually, and mentally. Letting them die was seen as one step toward salvation, while also pouring money into pre-natal care, and making sure that the people, while not as numerous, were better taken care of. To implement such an undertaking would be so cruel and so inhumane, that it would never fly. (The African leader did not go about letting his people die.) That does not mean, however, that the problem would take flight and not bother us any more. That is just one scenario. How do you keep people from having so many babies? Is educating them enough? This would need to be a worldwide undertaking. Mother Earth has too many people, and lessening water. How do you think that play out? Civility and all still there? What do we do?
Feb 17th 2008 12:12AM You cannot say the B's are not the 80's, unless you only know them from "Cosmic". Try "Rock Lobster" ('78), "Private Idaho" ('80), "Mesopotamia ('82), and so much more. The b's were most def '80's! I cannot believe some people!
Sep 25th 2007 11:50PM Why does size matter? If you look good, and she does, go with it.
Oct 18th 2006 12:53AM Foie gras refers to a dish of the liver of several types of bird, goose and duck being the most common. It is a delicacy, enjoyed by myself especially when coupled with a Sauternne. It sounds a little off putting, but it is so damn good. I also love to chow down on hots dogs, and I know there is a load of "extra" animal parts in them, but they too, taste so good. Free your minds and enjoy all of gods creatures and their various offerings!
