i liked it better when you were ranting on tf'ers to "do something". tf'ers were doing whatever they could, but it wasn't enough (and it isn't) and you would bitch and moan. but at least you were trying to incite people to action. rather than begging the establishment to convict themselves.
i watched alive day the other night. i was thinking, why the hell are they doing patrols in hum vee's when they're obviously not sufficient for the task?
i was thinking about the rally, the doom and gloom and reevaluating my position that gov corruption will end in tears.
we have job losses, but not chaos. we still have running water, electricity and stocked food marts. roving gangs of ultra violent yewts have yet to form. pop music is still bubble gum.
and those poor bastards in iraq and afghanistan are still running around with insufficient armor. doing what? al queda didn't have to lift a finger, 9/11 didn't even have to happen for them to get their wish. you think that maybe, just maybe, their judgements on our american gov and corporations were right? trillions in banker bailouts, soldiers patroling in soccer mom suv's. that's a problem. that's here and now. **** the bond vigirantes or the stock market or the pig flu. when pigs fly... democrats said we denounce the war, but support the soldiers. but just not as much as the bankers. rumsfeld wanted a military for the 21st century, light weight fighting forces for the new battlefield. so light, that in place of tanks, we send in investment bankers; goldman, et al to invade iran.
