Berkeley CSUA MOTD
1998/12/17 [Politics/Domestic/President/Clinton, Politics/Foreign/Asia/Korea] UID:15111 Activity:kinda low
12/16   Korea clones human!
        \_ While Clinton bans human cloning in the US, other countries are
           already producing super intelligent beings, capable of crippling
           US intelligence and inventing high tech weapons of mass destruction.
           The "Pretender" vision is alive!
        \_ troll deleted
           \_ Clearly, they're evil and anti-christian.

12/16   US strikes IRAQ.  Clinton to speak soon.
        \_ Clinton should order attack against the republicans.
        \_ All I have to say is not Wag the Dog.
           Besides that: Take everyone in Washington, put them under oath,
           ask them: Have you ever lied, misled or withheld or otherwise
           decieved your voting public? If they say yes: kick 'em out.
           If they say no, assign an independent council with 40 million
           dollars to investigate them for as long as it takes.
           \_ $40 million?  Shut up, cmlee.
1998/12/17 [Uncategorized] UID:15113 Activity:very high
12/16   How many people think that Emmanuelle is the Queen of the Galaxy?
        \_ how many people think this guys a twink?
        \_ Huh?  Yeah, sure, whatever.
        \_ Webster is not the queen of the galaxy.
1998/12/17 [Health/Men] UID:15114 Activity:nil
12/16   This probably starts another flame war, but what's the difference
        between a penis pump for pleasure and a pump that is a so-called
        "penis enlargement system"?
1998/12/17 [Academia/Berkeley/CSUA/Troll] UID:15115 Activity:nil
12/16   Tom, maybe you should consider just biting the bullet and cease
        deleting what you consider trolls so this whole issue can just die?
        Maybe you've noticed that the bulk of noise on the motd is related
        to your troll deletion; far more noise than the trolls themselves.
        I think this is a case of the cure being worse than the illness.
1998/12/17 [Uncategorized] UID:15116 Activity:kinda low
12/16   Need a line on a good ISP in the LA area.
1998/12/17 [Uncategorized] UID:15117 Activity:moderate
12/17   WordPerfect for Linux now available for free download
          \_ Why are they giving away a full-featured version?  I thought
             Corel made money buy selling software not providing support.
1998/12/17 [Uncategorized] UID:15118 Activity:very high
12/16   Stupid Questions deleted. -the stupid question deleter!
        \_ Yeah it was dumb to think Tom might actually grow up and stop
           making more noise than the trolls he deletes.
                \_ That one wasn't mine.  -tom
                   \_ I did it! It was me! I deleted the stupid
                      question. I'm flattered that you though I was Tom!
                      -the stupid question deleter!
                        \_ I didn't think it was Tom.  Don't flatter

1998/12/17-18 [Politics/Foreign/MiddleEast/Iraq] UID:15121 Activity:insanely high
12/17   Muslims condem the US strike and are boycotting Prince of Egypt!
                \_ it's 'condemn' you twink.-!tom
                        \_ He means a con-modulator/de-modulator.
                   \_ No, it's "condom".
                   \_ unless you're talking about the merger between
                      Compaq and Tandem, in which case it's either
                      "comdem" or "tampaq"...
                        \_ no, it's just "Compaq"
                           -- bitter tandem employee
                          \_ why bitter, at least your stock is worth $ now
                             -- oj, way ex-tandem
                             \_ if only they gave me stocks.
        Oh no! What are we going to do?
        \_ Attack the Muslims!
           \_ American Muslims strongly condemn US bombings of Iraq, and
remind President Clinton, and all those who support his action, that
Iraq is NOT a democracy and that Saddam Hussein's policies DO NOT
reflect the will of the Iraqi people. Bombing innocent Iraqi civilians
& their property, therefore, is unequivocally immoral and prohibited
by international law, as it is a serious violation of universal
principles of human rights. (Bombing Iraqi facilities thought to
contain weapons of mass destruction are in most cases located in
highly populated centers).

The timing of the bombing also raises serious questions about how
credible IS the Iraq threat to US interests? It is important to
remember that when the Lewinsky affair first became public, that
President Clinton attempted to distract the nation's attention by
threatening to attack Iraq. When the Starr report was first released,
Clinton attacked the sovereign nations of Sudan and Afghanistan.
And, now on the eve of what would have been congressional debate on
his possible impeachment, Clinton is bombing Iraq.

Bombing Iraq will only kill innocent civilians and worsen Iraqis
desperate situation following seven years of sanctions. The
sanctions have resulted in more than a million deaths, of which
750,000 were children below the age of five.  Access the International
Action Center (IAC) website on the effects of UN sanctions on Iraq

Bombing Iraq will only bolster Saddam's position
with the Iraqi people as protector of his country's sovereignty
against the US, and further jeopardize US relations with the people
and governments of the Middle East, which work against US interests
in the region.

I pray for the end of the bombings, for the besieged people of Iraq,
for the relatives of the dead and injured, and for the welfare of the
Iraqi people who have suffered long enough in the hands of Saddam
Hussein, and now, by direct US actions.

        \_ What does "Prince of Egypt" have to do with bombing Iraq or Muslims?
                \_ Possibly because he supports blowing the shit out of
                Iraq, and he is muslim?
                        \_ Moron.  "Prince of Egypt" is the new animated movie
                           about Moses.
   \_ The oil protected in the Gulf war is equivalent to the excess
    oil needed to keep fuel-inefficient SUV's operating in the U.S.
                STOP DRIVING!
