Bloodbath in Syria

<t>Can anyone think of a later colonial effort than the creation of Israel? I'm wondering if it's technically correct to refer to Israel as "the Last Colony."Also, is there any other example from history of an agricultural population being ethnically cleansed, beside the Palestinians? Agriculture, a...

The King of Corn Fuel

<t>z, I guess it really bothers you that I wrote one time a long while ago that I'm generally the most visible (noticeable? Probably you remember better than me my exact wording) person on whatever street I happen to be on. Maybe you like to be the most noticeable person, and you don't like sharing ...

The King of Corn Fuel

<t>What's really galling about z's dissing of my shoes is that in fact they're fairly expensive hiking boots. Not that I bought them for being expensive, mind you, but I have very wide feet and the only way to get shoes or especially boots that fit anywhere near decently is to pay through the nose.N...

Do left-wing people ever have sex?

QuoteOriginally posted by: HerdI want to add: as much as I dislike US foreign policy, I like the ways they deal with this.This is not the US. This is NYC. The US can almost go toe-to-toe with France in coddling celebrities, but NYC is unimpressed.

Do left-wing people ever have sex?

I wonder what Charlie Sheen will do to reclaim the title of World's Number One Bad Boy. I think it won't be pretty.

... and best of all, as with IMF officials, when you have other people's money to spend.

Do left-wing people ever have sex?

Why the f#@& is the IMF paying $3,000 a night for a glorified civil servant's hotel room??! This is the organization that preaches austerity to some of the poorest countries in the world?

Obama did it

<t>No, you dumbass. They took the two and a half months between the time you would have conducted the raid -- if indeed you weren't impeached for starting a war or two over the several earlier raids that you would have conducted -- to raise their certainty level to where they were fairly confident t...

<t>QuoteOriginally posted by: outrunA very interesting question is: Why didn't they just tell us that he was armed?Just a thought, but possibly they felt an obligation to tell the truth about the matter.

<t>While I find Obama a disappointment as a President (albeit for sane reasons, and not the hopped up nonsense of most of his detractors ...), it beggars belief to see this dissecting and character assassination over the bin Laden mission. If he turned water into wine, zerdna would sniff that it was...
