I'll ask my buddies in Baghdad how the surge is going. As soon as the power comes back on.Comment Posted By tHePeOPle On 8.08.2007 @ 19:53

Rick Moran Said: "Whatâ€™s silly is the notion that they had much of a clue as to how weâ€™d do it.) For this reason, the irresponsibility of the New York Times and other publications that continue to leak classified information should be condemned."
I completely disagree with this argument. What's silly is the idea that hey are naive to our techniques. If they're smart enough to enter our country, LEARN HOW TO FLY JETS, and bring down our pillars of commerce without us being able to do jack about it, then they're smart enough to figure out how we might monitor them.
Furthermore, if the NYT and other publications know about it, it's hardly classified anymore. The application of my argument can readily been seen in the computer industry. Security flaws are regularly posted in order to force companies like Microsoft to react immediately, as opposed to sitting on the info and doing nothing about it. You might argue that lives may not be at stake in the computer security business, but I'd argue differently. Lives and treasure. Publishing this information helps us more than it could ever help the terrorists. It forces the government to get it's collective sh!t together at a much quicker rate.Comment Posted By tHePeOPle On 1.08.2007 @ 19:08
It's good to hear that everything's going well. I had no idea. Everything else I read says the exact opposite. I hope to see our progress reflected at the pumps soon.Comment Posted By tHePeOPle On 30.07.2007 @ 13:46
Lets also not forget the unprecedented fallout that this whole nightmare is starting to bring. Not only do the actions of the administration undermine prosecutor credibility, but they open the window for defendants to challenge their cases, demanding dismissals or retrials based on prosecutorial political motivation in bringing the cases in the first place. Yes, this is happening right now across the country. I wonder how much credibility and money this will end up costing?
Oh, and by the by, David Iglesias is a f'ing national hero. If the republicans had a guy like that running, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat. Integrity. But unfortunately, a guy like that would never run in the first place.Comment Posted By tHePeOPle On 30.07.2007 @ 10:33
Any chance to hear what candidates think is good for independent voters like myself. I don't care if the questions come from a talking snowman or two actual lesbians*. Quit being gigantic pussies and answer some f'ing questions! I want to know who to vote for, and it sure as hell isn't going to be someone who's afraid of direct questions from the public.

"The only question is will more die if we leave than if we stay."
Actually, I've got another question. Where is my ROI for this war? Whether it be cheaper gas or, well.. mostly just cheaper gas, I want it now. I don't want it 30 years from now when history vindicates George W. Bush. That's crap. With enough effort, I figured it'd be possible to turn money and corpses into AT LEAST a dollar savings per gallon. Probably more than that if we get some of the good scientists working on it. Not these number fudging "100k dead" quacks. The current rate of return is disappointing.Comment Posted By tHePeOPle On 26.07.2007 @ 14:16
This is why I love politics so much. It's just pure F'ING insanity.
Republicans spend like six whole years F'ING up the country. Literally. They get booted in the election, then they sit back and screw with, and laugh at, the Dems as they struggle pathetically to fix the mess. It's classic.
I'm so happy to be an independant.Comment Posted By tHePeOPle On 19.07.2007 @ 11:54
The Iranian people can't even put gas in their cars. They hate their government almost as much as we do. That's the key to this whole thing. Defeating Iran's insanity should come from within Iran. When the people in a country filled with oil can't even put gas in their cars, they're gonna get pissed, which they are.
The blowback from (another) US nudged internal uprising along those lines might be preferable the blowback from bombing the crap outta them. Even though that would be more fun and we'd get to use more of our f'ing cool exploding stuff. (I LOVE Future Weapons)
The great thing about blowback though, is that it's exactly like Gozer the Gozerian from Ghost Busters. It's gonna happen anyway, so let's try to think of the least scary form. Like, I dunno, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man? Do they have marshmallows in Iran?Comment Posted By tHePeOPle On 16.07.2007 @ 12:30
