I have just the thing for sumac...but it involves bathing in torg droppings and applying waskit worms to the affected area.

In answer to your question, here's one powerful group, the Campaign Legal Center which is run by former counsel for McCain:
They represent a mindset that says political speech should be regulated because the American people are too stupid to not be swayed by dishonest claims made by non-journalists.
They are reprehensible creatures who deserve to be boiled in oil.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 4.06.2005 @ 14:43
Since you've left more than (I think its) three comments in the last 24 hours, my spam blocker thinks your posts are on a par with on-line poker or sex sites.
Sorry 'bout that...Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 7.06.2005 @ 11:59
Marty & Richard:
When 85% of attendees at the Democratic convention opposed the Iraq War and 45% opposed the war in Afghanistan, can you argue that the "left" as represented by the Democratic party is "hard headed" or not ninnies?
There are plenty of Democrats - moderates and liberals - who support the war on terror. My beef is with the moonbat left, the ones who think Karl Rove controls everything and George Bush is a robot. Or who think that Bush was behind 9/11 or that we're trying to steal Iraqi oil and that's the only reason we're there.
We already are a global empire - we've been once since 1945. It can't be helped. Our military, only the 14th largest in the world, is by far and away the best in the world, better than any two armies. We have a $9 trillion economy. All of western europe AND Japan are not as large. American culture is dominating the planet as people gobble up American films, American music, and American styles. English is the language of international diplomacy, of international business, of science and technology.
In short, unless you're willing to shrink our economy, emasculate the military, and ban the export of American culture, then you will have an American empire. So the question isn't getting one - the question is what do with it now that we have it.
My point in the article was simple. We could lose the war on terror very easily. We could lose it by giving up. The surrender would be couched in soothing language, much like Kerry's bromides during the latter part of the campaign..."Let the UN do it"...Get the europeans involved"..."Give a timetable for withdrawal"...etc.
This will sell a lot better in "08 as we will have drawn down our troops substantially and Iraq will hopefully not be an issue. It will be close - just as it was in '04 - but there could be enough switches to give the election to the Democrats on the basis of not being too agressive in going after al Qaeda. You underestimate how that might play and I think you overestimate the resolve of the American people in the matter. Only another 9/11 size attack would bring most of us back to our senses.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 6.06.2005 @ 20:48
First of all, thank you for your service. Secondly, the idea that supporters of the war who are not serving are chickenhawks is bull. It's pure sophistry to argue this point and while it might make you feel good to call your political opponent names, you only show yourself to be shallow minded and petty.
That said, I agree with much of what you said:
I would love to have seen Bush take the actions you suggest even if it meant putting his domestic agenda on hold.
As for the number of troops, the problem there is politics. Is it better to an overbearing presence that would complicate our position in the mid east enormously? I don't know the answer to that and neither do you. The people we elected to make those decisions think we had enough. You can criticize the decision, but please don't ascribe inferior motives to it.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 6.06.2005 @ 16:57
You are correct about the title of the book.
I'm just wondering how you get from my statement "I recommend reading each and every book listed" to me advocating book burning?
Please point out in my post where I advocate book burning? You can't, of course. There isn't even a hint or a suggestion of it. Only in your warped, ignorant, and confused, hate filled mind is the suggestion made.
Perhaps you're projecting your own wishes about other books? That's the only explanation I can think of.
I'm sick of your inane comments. I'm sick of you putting words in my mouth and attributing ideas to me that have no basis in fact.
I'm sick of you. You're banned.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 4.06.2005 @ 10:29
"Darwin wrote The Origin Of Species."
"And even though they included both Darwin’s Origin of the Species and Descent of Man..."
What part of that didn't you understand?I think you need a remedial reading course.
Also, I would recommend reading each and every book listed here - not putting them on a "bonfire" dingbat.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 4.06.2005 @ 08:55
Sorry you didn't read the article.
UN satellite analysis showed something being moved from those sites before the invasion. My questions stands; why move them if they were not related to the biological weapons production?Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 3.06.2005 @ 11:26
