Actually, I have a chest cold that I think is the flu - not double pneumonia which was a play on the fact that I covered two weeks of Watchers council results.
But hey! I still feel like double crap, let me tell you...Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 28.09.2006 @ 21:06

I appreciate your comments as always.
This was not a practical joke. Both under the law and in point of fact, it was a terrorist act.
No different than using a toy gun to hold up a bank. They still call it armed robbery.
And I think that you have to separate someone's politics from their basic humanity. I hate what Olbermann stands for. I don't hate the man.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 27.09.2006 @ 22:59
My oh my...quite the little snot, aren't we?
Hoplessly naive to the last, my friend. I'm 52 years old and I've been hearing basically this same crap for more than 30 years - we're vulnerable, the world hates us, you're on your last legs America, yadayadayada...
Are you saying, like Bullwinkle to Rocky as the Moose tries once again to pull the rabbit out of the hat, "This time for sure! Presto!"
America has been buried by better than you, my friend. And somehow we came back...or maybe we never really went away. So take your simpleminded, overbearing, insufferable commentary somewhere else.
Might I suggest an al-Qaeda website? I'm sure they'd welcome you with open arms since you feel about America exactly the same way they do.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 28.09.2006 @ 16:20
Thanks for the spelling correction.
And I make no apologies for someone elses' abuse of the English language. It may be generational but I suspect the reason I didn't get it is ideological.
For that, I am immensely grateful that my imagination can't grasp the idiotic liberal penchant for mangling intent when it comes to language.
Guess I'm just not hip enough...Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 26.09.2006 @ 13:47
While I disagree with the thrust of your commentary, the moral blindness of the left in not taking responsibility for giving aid and comfort to the enemy is one of the most infuriating aspects of both the Viet Nam and Iraq conflicts.
Go ahead and be anti-war. It is a perfectly patriotic and moral position to hold. I was in Viet Nam. But to think that your opposition takes place in a vacuum - that the enemy does not take heart from the media and the left in their more unbalanced critiques of the war ("torture" that isn't torture, "No blood for oil" ect)then you are mired in a kind of moral blindness that holds enormous consequences for any military action we take in the future.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 24.09.2006 @ 11:52
Gee...I can't imagine why someone would ban you or hang up on you. You're such a quiet, rational sort of guy, not given to conspiracy theories, and very polite with people who disagree with you.
Nope...just can't see it...Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 24.09.2006 @ 19:22
The Clintonistas and the left successfully buried most of this information in the 9/11 Commission Report by simply concentrating on the very real and outrageous failings of the Bush Administration in the lead up to 9/11.
Maybe if you read the post (if you are capable of doing so) you would have noticed that this "Bushbot" (shallow thinkers inevitably lump anyone they disagree with in this category)knows full well the failures of the Bush Administration in the lead up to 9/1..
In fact, you prove a point I've been making for weeks; that the real problem with the ABC project and the discussion since then is that no one is blaming Bush ENOUGH for 9/11.
It is ludicrous, of course. Which is why your critique of this article is so stupid. I'm not the one with a narrative to defend here. I've got the facts on my side.
All you have is spin...Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 23.09.2006 @ 14:40
You make a good point. There's a fine line between exploitation by advertisers and exploitation of one's personal physical gifts. Both seek to sell something although I agree with your argument that the woman getting dolled up is interested in the reaction to her personally.
But models in a beer commercial must have similar thoughts, no? What the company is after is product recognition. If a specific model's body aids in that effort, might that necessarily mean that a woman is using the exposure in a commercial to make a personal statement about her own beauty?
It's a stretch I'll admit. But the reaction to beauty when we see it is almost universally positive - by both sexes. One wonders how advertisers got along by doing anything else.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 17.09.2006 @ 18:13
I'm not so sure he'll give in. He's had two opportunities to apologize for what he said and instead has apologized for the reaction to what he said.
Yes it's a thin line but he hasn't crossed it and, given the entire message contained in his lecture, I don't think he will.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 17.09.2006 @ 08:32
