"My idea of American policy toward the Soviet Union is simple, and some would say simplistic. It is this: 'We win and they lose.' What do you think of that?" -- Ronald Reagan, to future National Security Adviser Richard V. Allen, 1977.
My idea of American policy towards Iraq, Iran, Syria, pretty much any camel oriented nation: we win they lose. You want to live like Tusken Raiders (seriously, you Star Wars nerds know what I'm talking about, there are some odd similarities between Middle Easterners and the "sand people" and I'm not just talking about them living in the desert and having poor hygeine) that's fine by me, but come bother us and we will bomb you back further than the stone age. (since that is where you seem to currently reside)
And can we all agree that teachers are the most overpaid workers in America? Seriously, do they actually work like 8 weeks out of the year? $30k/year doesn't sound too bad when you get summer off, spring break, Christmas (I mean "winter") break, every holiday imaginable and when it gets a little cold you get a "snow day."
But the important thing is that Randy Leonard is saving kids from the horrors of seeing adults smoke cigarettes in the park. He says that smoking isn't "role model behavior." Fine, but Portland celebrates stuff that isn't role model behavior with alarming frequency:
Where you saying something about "health risks" Randy? But I'm sure that Portlands "gay community" (they get their own community because they are so opressed) is so glad that now they only have to worry about AIDS and other STD's and not having their children (oh wait...) see adults using legal products in the public park.
On to my new hobby: I have been holding all my conversations as if I have drank the cool-aid. I've found it quite enjoyable. (especially with a certain co-worker who I will call "Gary") I simply parrot the most asinine liberal trash that I can think of. Examples:
Anyone who is friends with Dick Cheney is referred to as a "cronie."
Make statements such as "we should take the money we are spending in Iraq and instead 'invest' it in preschool nutrition programs."
Take no responsibility for your problems and instead blame them on "the white male establishment." (corporate America can also be blamed)
Mutter about "the rich" constantly.
Talk about oil as if it is snake venom.
Make fun of Christians, especially Pat Robertson.
I'm going to sign off with a link to some Reagan quotes. Boy do I wish that man was president today...
