11/7    Obama's draft goes down the memory hole (LGF)
        \_ Oh please, let me quote the GOP from when that pompous cybersec guy
           came to ask cs studentds help in 02.  "GET OVER IT."
        \_ You guys are irrelevant. No one cares what you think anymore.

7/01    Obama's continuing flip-flops.  This time on same-sex marriage
        \_ hey guess what dittoheads: conservatives are the only people who
           care about "flip flops."  The rest of us call it "reconsidering."
           \_ I don't think _anyone_ here listens to Limbaugh.  You might as

9/24    Wow, they don't have gays in Iran
        \_ There are no gays in the US military, either.
           \_ Why pick on Iran?  How about Saudi Arabia?  How come we have
              no issue with Saudi chopping people's hands off, gauging eyes
              off, and stone women to death?  In fact, we love Saudi so much

9/14    So, exactly what did the surge accomplish again?
        My feeling is that Republican just want to drag this until
        2009 and blame Democrats for "loosing the war."
        \_ It accomplished exactly what it was intended to accomplish:
           it lined the pockets of the defence contractors, all who

5/27    "But in a world saturated with selfhood, where every death is by
        definition a death in vain, the notion of sacrifice today
        provokes puzzlement more often than admiration." from a WSJ
        op-ed (which I didn't/couldn't read)
        After seeing tonight's 60 Minutes, I think this applies to the whole

1/14    Guys, I am a bit nervous.  I think we are going to attack Iran next...
        Well, in a way, we've already did.  Last time I checked, embassy is
        considered as sovereign territory of a nation. As we have raided the
        Iranian embassy in Iraq, we are in effect attack Iran territory.
        Under normal circumstances, this would considered as an act of war.
