It was probably Muslim terrorists, but let's just go ahead and Blame Bush (TM), mkay?Comment Posted By Ogre On 19.09.2006 @ 12:47
Your general supposition with this post implies that you think the (formerly) mainstream media has some passing interest in the truth. They have zero desire for truth. Seriously.
They want to sell newspapers, period. And sensationalism sells. Therefore, if they can make something look more violent or bloody, or even more interesting, they will do so, no matter what the truth may be.
They honestly do not CARE what the truth is. Their business is NOT the truth. Their business is entertainment.Comment Posted By Ogre On 16.09.2006 @ 12:59
Indeed, a good analysis. That's my question to Republican incumbents running this year: Why in the world should I vote for you? The only answers I can get are all negatives: "So X doesn't happen."
It's not working on me, but there's no elections in any of my districts this year, anyway (everyone from dog catcher to US House Rep is unopposed).Comment Posted By Ogre On 24.08.2006 @ 11:30
I'm with kreiz: I don't think even a nuclear strike by Iran on Israel would be enough for the US to use nukes. The left would argue against it because it's mean, the Republicans would argue against it because it would "make enemies."
Me, I'd be held back by guard from pushing the damn button. I don't think we have the will to use nukes, and I think Iran knows it.Comment Posted By Ogre On 11.08.2006 @ 12:51
Very well said.
But I defer to Roger Daltrey:

At least you have a choice.
Here in my district in North Carolina, all decisions have already been made. There is no competition for federal elections, none for state-level, and none locally (other than a judge or two).
And be aware that not every polling place allows write-ins -- they are not permitted in North Carolina unless the person who is to be written in has "qualified," following a long and tedious process -- otherwise your write in is simply not counted.Comment Posted By Ogre On 18.05.2006 @ 09:39
Hey, I give off pherenomes and I'm not on the list.
What do you mean, "Those aren't pherenomes?" Pherenomes ARE a green gas that follows around behind you, right? ;)Comment Posted By Ogre On 17.05.2006 @ 09:34
I'm rather surprised that after Miles' outburst towards Granny that Granny didn't demand to hear that tape the very second that Jack walked into CTU -- never mind that whole "clean this tape up" crap.
And ONE F/A-18? Never happen. You ALWAYS send two -- in case one has problems.Comment Posted By Ogre On 9.05.2006 @ 09:44
And where in the world is Aaron Pierce?Comment Posted By Ogre On 2.05.2006 @ 14:53
Here's a wild one -- what if Henderson escapes and runs to Weasel for protection. When Logan refuses, Henderson offs him and runs for cover in Germany.Comment Posted By Ogre On 2.05.2006 @ 14:30
