Friendly advice: spell check before lecturing people on their language skills. Glass houses and such.
Turn you in: Again: FOR WHAT?! You are not there, never were there! So what the DEVIL would I do that for? Answer.
I answered you last time. You insinuated that I personally had stood silently by while my fellow Marines committed crimes. I was actually rather
impressed with how many times the word "you" managed to appear in that brief little snippet. Were you not an American, I might accept the copout you
are hoping to take, that you were referring to Americans, the context being what it is, it seems most likely that you were charging me as a member of
the armed forces when you said
How about some of these movies that have floated around showing the US military looting sites? Not sure where they are now, 2 years later but I
saw 2 of them. Want more proof: the Iraqi museums... oh wait! There gone! Everything was looted! Now you say: That was the Iraqis not US! WRONG! You
never held the good of the people in mind, ever. If you did you would have protected their heritage,
If not, pray tell who exactly you believed would be reading this post which would make a direct address appropriate.
So would they NOT fudge the numbers to make it sound like that 40,000 a year which is actually less than that after taxes is a good
Look at it objectively. Median isn't some magic made up figure that the government decides upon. It's determined mathematically. Use that dictionary
you were bragging about- the definition is quite absolute.
The average American either has a poor standard of living or they do not. Most rational people would say the average American has a pretty decent
standard of living. So where exactly is your argument?
Not that I need to take the government's word for it: I live on less than 1/4th of that at the moment and you'd never know it by looking at me. I
work for a decent room, I know how to shop and cook instead of shoving 4.95 worth of fries down my throat at every meal, and I don't have to spend
money to entertain myself.
Yeah ok whatever, taxes are given allocation in my state immediately.
If you are contributing money to any part of your state's budget, you are making it possible for them to afford their national guard, period.
"oh, it wasn't my dollar, it was my neighbors dollar that bought the bullet". That doesn't matter. If you hadn't paid those taxes they would have
had to reallocate money from other purposes and they wouldn't be able to support the war.
Interpretation: What is there to interpet?
Are you that unrefined or is this strictly posturing? Do you really have no appreciation for the subtlties of law? You have made the stolen election a
part of your argument. Do you believe that every E-1 in the military is qualified to review Bush v Gore with due respect to precedent and determine
the validity of orders from this CinC?
Nevermind the questions over the unitary executive, the controvery over the legislative veto, the standing of international law in relation to
American law, and countless other factors which would be decisive on various arguments for or against the war. Most of them are certainly
intelligible, but I wouldn't want just any dude fresh off Paris Island to be making those calls, especially when he had a rifle and the fate of our
country in his hands.
Besides which, you fail to realize that if they would just listen to the people,
Ah, the good old "me the people" argument. How many people have signed off on your opinion?
Stealing an election by a LARGE margin will cause war, people will not stand for it.
Even changing the election by a small margin would cause a war, that's what I'm trying to tell you. The stunt that Bush pulled never would have
worked if people like you would stop going into hibernation in November. Just fill your gas tank all the way up so that you can get to your polling
place without having to pay any taxes by stopping for gas, and try quarterbacking on sunday for a change, or tuesday as the case may be.
Mass media: WRONG! I never said "Mass media" YOU DID! I was talking about using what is available to get messages out: independent radio and the
last TV channel: FSTV (free speech TV) along with the few newspapers, magazines, and other such groups that still exist.
You are quibbling over diction. You have failed to challenge the point. Show me this overwhelming demand you speak of which is unquestionably the
clear, actionable will of the majority, whatever the hell kind of media it is from.
Prove to you the people...: 151 million, yeah right, people want him IMPEACHED! I want him impeached AS WELL!
Many do, and I'm among them, but with no solid numbers and no clear demand that's hardly grounds to insist that the military should orchestrate a
coup. I cannot believe that someone who claims to want freedom could bring himself to utter the words.
2008/9 will decide this matter.
Having your cake and eating it to I see. What's so special about the next election that this 6 point swing from corruption you mentioned wont be able
to touch it? Funny how you admit to my points when its convenient. I can see why you don't want to debate.
Citing the dictionary websites: hmmm.... so you did not read them? I read the defenitions of these forces,
Actually you completely made up your own which sounded very little like the dictionary definitions. You made money the end-all-be-all of mercenary
status, completely omitting the requirement of foreign service which 2 of 3 definitions included, and you also neglected the part where it
specifically says a soldier fights for a cause.
the household dictionary... assuming you even have one.
Nope, I don't. I didn't spend all that time making this computer servicable again just to go off and buy a library worth of stuff that I can get for
free online. Welcome to the future. You can return your generations out of date sources to Granny Clampet.
Blob-o-tex: I use emphasis, you do not. That a crime? If so, by whos rules? Yours apparently, no one elses.
Well, I didn't really want to throw a book at you, but since you ask...
Brother, I've seen Bowling for Columbine and Ferentheit 9/11. Yes, propaganda. If that is not the case for the others, who don't you reconstruct the
arguments instead of just saying "see this" "see that". Such references suggest that they make strictly pathological appeals which are difficult
to recreate in a reasoned discussion.
H2H forum: why because you want to let loose of civility? I am being civilized here, not interested in a "bloody up someone" forum which
Bloody up nothing. You have repeatedly accused me of doding questions and ignoring evidence, you have presented extremely poor evidence yourself, you
have shown a complete lack of skill and style in the art of rhetoric, and I think if you didn't know deep down that you'd be roundly trounced that
you'd be willing to subject our discourse to the review of a neutral 3rd party and have these various charges borne out or disproven.
You cannot by any means "relieve" me of my notions,
You are rather staunch in your incorrect positions, I'll give you that.
I suggest you get over your ego and just walk away if you do not like how I talk.
On both counts, you certainly don't know me very well.
Friends: you are not a friend, never were, never will be.
Well you may not be my friend but I'm yours. You should take things less personal. I'd hate to see my newest addition to my friends list have a
heart attack. Afterall, if all this ugliness wasn't just friendly ribbing, that would make us both rather assenine wouldn't it? I don't think I
want to be assenine, so I'm gonna call it all in good fun from my end.
I am talking about a video and actions here on a topic,
Thanks for clearing that up, because from your posts so far, I don't think anybody had a clue what you were talking about.
you want to start a fight. No. I will not partake in a fuedal fight over someone elses spilt milk.
Feudal does not relate to a feud little buddy. Feudal is where poor folks like me work your land for your benefit and are little better than slaves
for it. You can just say feud or fight. The redundancy is redundant.
if you do not like how I talk, just hit the IGNORE button on the left side of your screen, or just walk away.
Nah, that's alright. I still love ya, even if you are quite nearly as coarse as I and wrong about virtually everything.
Don't take it personally brother. A lot of my friends need to be brought back to reality now and then.
