It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.

Dan Rather to step down at CBS News anchor

Wonder if this was a choice...

I still don't get it. Clinton lies about getting a blow job. Impeached. Bush lies to start a war preemptively where 1222 Americans have already died in combat (not counting beheadings, etc). Nothing. Rather either lied or, more likely, did a shoddy job, if any, researching documents that were given to him, and he's essentially fired.

Are our priorities fucked up or what?

    Justice would be if the Instabullshit were to lose his job because of all the stupid shit he says.

    Read the 9/11 commission report and supporting documents.

    Bush and his admin did not lie about the intel they receieved and their reason for going to war. The mistake you are making is just repeating the same line you've been told over and over. Educate yourself first hand and things become clearer.

    Anonymous solved the riddle for me!

    Why are the Republicans choosing to ignore the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission? Answer courtesy of Anonymous' post...Because even if they "read" it, they didn't understand it. Thanks Anonymous.

    Ok..my name is chris....there..am I any less anonymous now, jackass?

    Bottom line you still have not read and understood any of the 9/11 commision's report, and you know it.

    I am an ex navy veteran..I spent the better part of my service during the 90's in the middle east, involved in counter-terror activities, and the idea that there are NO links between Iraq and Al-quaeda not to mention NUMEROUS other anti US terror groups is laughable.

    I am a combat veteran whose primary concern was terrorism in the middle east from 90-97..ane who lived there for most of that time. I feel SUPREMELY more qualified than yourself or any other children like yourself to judge the justification of the war on Iraq.

    Try again...KID....

    Hey Anonymous or Chris or Ex-Navy or Old Dude. I'll give you the first suggestion on getting your message across.

    Find an audience who wants to hear your drivel.

    That's all.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by "or what".

    Well, if there truly were justifications for kicking the shit out of Iraq which panned out to be true, I haven't yet heard them. All I've heard are the stovepiped "NUCULAR BOMB" scares which Dick Cheney's office massaged and trumped up, Dick Cheney's unverified assertions, some lame ass allegations about Zarquawi (one leg? two legs? who knows?) receiving treatment in an Iraqi hospital (which as far as I know have never been verified, some equally lame and unverifiable assertions that some Iraqi intelligence official may at one point have met once with Mohammed Atta, and the location of an Ansar-al-Islam camp in the northern no-fly zone, which was controlled by our allies the Kurds and protected by the US and UK Air Force (which suggests that we of course were sheltering some Islamic militants -- that is beyond the Islamic militants we trained and funded in Afghanistan).

    So some raw assertion from someone who claims to be a big swinging military dick that of course Iraq had ties to Al Quaeda just doesn't cut it. The American People deserve truthful, detailed public reasons before we're to starting a crusade against an Islamic country.

    what's wrong with calling someone a jackass when that person is indeed a jackass? Nothing in my book....

    When you kids grow up and see a little bit of the world outside of your sheltered existences...you will be embarrassed of some of the things you found yourself saying when you were younger. If you don't think this will happen you are even more naive than the average kid...

    oh well...you keep on keeping on with your "beliefs"...

    This whole post is too rich...clueless kids talking about how messed up "our priorities" are? Kid....there are worlds of education, experience and accomplishment between you and being considered with me in the group "our".

    Someday perhaps some light will creep into your young brains....then again..there are alot of ultra liberal and ultra conservative middle aged jackasses out there that have an idealogy devoid of fact and reason...so I guess you can just consider yourselves replacements...

    me..I prefer first hand proof.

    back to class, kids....

    No..I KNOW you don't want to hear it...noone likes to hear their wafer thin arguments put under the light of scrutiny..but I would have thought by now you'd be used to your ideas being shown the door....

    oh well...my suggestion to you is get used to your ideas being shredded..unless you plan on greatly improving them....

    try again...

    you can't argue with an ignorant person, he'll just bring you down to his level and beat you up with experience.

    You know what I don't get? People who are so arrogant that they truly believe their opinions are the only ones that matter. Whatever your age or experience, there will always be people who don't care what you think. So be the "adult" and walk away.

    And name-calling is just childish.
