Whats the opposite of smart?????
A long long time ago, in a place far, far away there was a very bad man who took it upon himself to buy the biggest sticks he could and gave them to all his friends. People called these sticks 'Star Wars'. The bad man bought so many of these sticks that his enemies gave up trying to keep up with him and even abandoned their way of life. This was not such a bad thing though because 'democracy' or something close to it, broke out, good times were happening almost everywhere....yada, yada, yada a retarded cowboy came to power and the good times went away again. (Apologies to anyone who has been classified 'retared' if they take offense with GWB being labelled this.)
"In many areas of civil society - from religion and the news media, to advocacy groups and political parties - the government has unfairly and improperly restricted the rights of the people," Mr Cheney said.
Funny, at first I thought he was talking about the Bush administration, curious.
Does anyone else find it amusing that the 'bad boys' in the whitehouse are ruffling the feathers of the Russkies at the same time as they are seeking their assistance to contain Iranian nuclear ambitions, counter Islamic terrorism in Georgia and other former Soviet Republics and turn the gas pipeline back onto the Ukraine. "Are you totally deranged?"
When I was younger and trying to woo a young woman I didn't abuse her because she was mean to her mother. I didn't poke her in the eye when she disagreed with my point of view and I always laughed at her jokes no matter how inane. Why, because she had something I wanted, nay, needed.
If we really need Russia for our global plans, wouldn't it make sense to gently stroke her so we get what we want, nay, need?
Then once we have wooed them "Pork away pal. Fuck her blue."
