That and the number of half truths, no truths, and irrational statements - too many that are either laughable falsehoods or simple minded theories - to debunk.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 1.06.2007 @ 14:44
I know where you are living. You forget that I do work for the European Union and friends in Interpol. Iâ€™ve offered you a mature way to deal with this situation. Youâ€™re obviously too immature and inexperienced to recognize the offer for what it is. Too bad.
Yes...classy.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 31.05.2007 @ 07:25
Joe and Valerie Wilson are the real patriots. They are the ones above ideology, capable of working for presidents of both parties.
Being a patriot like Joe and Val sure pays well. Book deals, movie rights, speech fees - one could almost say they're self aggrandizing lickspittles. But I won't.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 30.05.2007 @ 14:22
And where do you see me making excuses for Bush?
How do you like it when people put words in your mouth? Not very nice, huh.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 30.05.2007 @ 17:26
No words about what an incredible hypocrite you are for excusing what Clinton did while calling what Bush did illegal?
LOL! Indeed.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 30.05.2007 @ 13:28
That may be the most confused, convoluted, illogical post you've ever left here.
And that's saying something.

There isn't a historian worth their salt who says the MExican War was any but a war to expand the territory of the United States -a war of conquest. Ditto the war of Spain being a war for empire.
Perhaps what you're seeing is a little confidence in expressing my opinions. There's some subtly there that I think you're missing. I say absolutely nothing against the fighting men of the United States. But I point out that they have been ill-served - especially in this war.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 26.05.2007 @ 21:43
I think you've hit the nail on the head with Vader. History Channel had a fascinating 2 hour piece on the legacy of Star Wars including Joseph Campbell talking about the mythology behind it. The redemptive aspect of Lucas'development of the character is seen time and again in mythology. Of course, the rule is, he dies redeeming himself.
But Vader will still be considered a villain despite his wavering. Remember what he did to Han in Empire Strikes Back - even after he had expressed some doubts about killing his own son which I assume is where you see the redemptive process beginning. And Luke saw no such redemptive potential until after he fought him - but the audience wasn't with him at that point I don't believe.
If Lucas had bothered to get a decent actor to play Aniken Skywalker, the evil Darth could really have taken on a new life. But Hayden Christiansen couldn't act his way out of a paper bag and only made the transition from Revenge of the Sith to New Hope awkward.
Lucas is evidently working on the definitive Star Wars DVD collection - nearly 100 hours of movies (with scenes never before seen), outtakes, interviews - the whole shebang. I read where it may take 20 discs and cost $350.

You may be right about Mr. No name but I was hardly thinking Disney when talking about Boone and Crockett.
Dime novels of Boone began appearing very early in the 19th century and were gobbled up by easterners. Crockett's impact was even bigger. He was THE mythic hero of the 19th century with his stuff selling well into the 1880's.
I actually wrote about this a couple of times as they relate to Bauer:

Let me tell you what crap I'M tired of, Ricahrd.
I'm sick to death of YOU.
You have ten dwarves running for preident, three of whom belive evolutionis fantasy, nine who think torture is just dandy, and a twice divorced, mean spirited, adultrous bully who will say anything on abortion to get elected.
Exaggeration, lie, lie, exaggeration. You are incapable of making a comment without one or the other. I am SICK TO DEATH OF YOU. You add nothing to the discourse on the blog. You pollute it with crap. And life is too short to have to deal with people like you.
Once again. And for good. You are banned.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 20.05.2007 @ 09:40
