"Go to bed now."

Sorry, grandpa, I don't take orders from anyone.

There are exactly two things I never argue with: success and failure. Life Dynamics is successful; grubbing, cowardly Republicans are failures.

Take a hint ... until you say something halfway bright and quit making erroneous assumptions about my sex life (like you did last night) you'll continue to be on my "uninteresting people

Hell you showed the entire world your "sex life" last night. BTW just how old is she?

I'll never forget that weird composite picture Rush posted on his website of a typical Freeper. It was really bizarre and seemed to be a spontaneous and unprovoked dig at Freepers- last year or the year before. He depicted Freeper's to be, shall we say,mentally challenged and inhabitants of Deliverance country.Perhaps someone can get it out of the archives and remind Freepers of how Rush sees us.

"Why do you expect an answer? "

Oh, and by the way, why I expect an answer, is that as long as I've been here, this has been a forum for debate. And I expect that people who have a reputation here, would answer a question.

Rush is and always has been a "solution in search of a problem". He makes a good buck doing it but Rush is a media whore and he cares not who the "john" of the moment is.

(Lebanon? Are you smoking their hash or still longing for yasser to come back and destroy the rest of that land? And Morocco will be Judenrein by the time you get out of jail. I know Jews who lived in Morocco for generations before you were a nightmare in your ancestor's eyes. Dhimmitude lives on and grows worse for Jews in Morocco as you live and breathe...you should be happy.

More about Indonesia. It is a mixed bag, but to be fair, it sure ain't akin to what we find (sadly) at present in most of the Arab world. The best we can hope for is that this too shall pass.

I have been in and out of the thread tonight. Could you give me a synopsis of what went on tonight, with holdonnow.Was it about Bush's speech? What was his beef? I saw some of his replies and quite frankly, they were borderline incoherent- I still cannot believe that was Mark Levin.

You really are in denial re: his name calling, aren't you? That is a rhetorical question so you don't need to answer.

I've seen people all night point out his name calling to you and it just goes right past you. You ask for specific posts, but when they are supplied to you, you don't respond.

You seem to be quilty of wearing the same type of blinders you accuse others of wearing.

If a pot and a kettle are involved here, I would say you have purchased an entire set of teflon coated cookware.

What smear? He traded insults with bullies who deal in insults all the time. I don't have a problem with that.

If you're so worried about smears, go straighten out habs4ever and PhiKapMom.

Best I could get out of him - in between his calling other posters names - was that Bush was appeasing the terrorists and ought not to be offering them a state.

Oh yeah, he didn't like CFR, the farm bill, or a bunch of other stuff Bush did, and he didn't like it at all when people said that Reagan had compromised on a couple of things.

Maybe he gets so upset at the Rush and Sean bashing BECAUSE his input is what they are getting bashed on. As some said - he is the point man on Israel for Sean and Rush.

Thank you. Btw...I feel religious views are perfectly valid in forming policy positions. If Tibetan Buddhists in America want the USA to act a certain way toward Communist China, if Catholics have an opinion on our policy toward Italy and the Vatican, if Jews and evangelicals want us to do this or that regarding Israel, their voices count as much as anyones.

It would probably be because of an Arab boycott and Arab pressure groups.

"No, I mean terrorists like YOU! Your use of the word "squatter" is appropriate for what you do here on FR."

Testy, aren't we?

Care to compare "member since" dates, son? >:)=. -Eric

Care to compare how many innocent women and children intentionally slaughtered by jihadis that you encouraged? You go girl, you are edging close to the FR Goebelles award.

And who gives a flying for how long you have been SQUATTING on your keyboard at FR. Anyone who loves Peres and is STUPID enough to call many of the Jews living in Yesha socialists is an obvious candidate for HamAS juco validictorian of the year. And btw, I'm not your "son, I have 10 years on you, more than enough understand the weakness of your mind and your spirit.

No, it's an apt description.

BTW, as to a comment you made to me a ways back on this thread, I'm not a my-guy-or-noone person. Perhaps you remember me in front of "Cheney's house" a while back.

You also may have heard about Operation Infinite Freep--it's mentioned on the FR home page. I'm not bragging, just making the point as plain as can be.

Not having the time or interest to read the massive thread. . . did anyone in it anywhere discuss the feel of Bush's talk in terms of globalism?

I just kept having the feeling of him or someone after him giving a similar speech only MUCH MORE dictatorial--that it would not be suggestions at that point but essentially direct orders that uhhhhh military type people . . . unnnn somewhat after the pattern of some historical such types . . . would begin immediately to enforce.

I felt very uneasy though I wanted consciouslly to cheer Bush on.

Howlin,

I'd like to ask a question here, because this is not the first time I've seen a person try to prove some kind of bonafides, by claiming that they picked up a bull-horn and stood outside of Cheney's house during the near coup of an election. Exactly what does that prove? I do believe that it proves that they were against something, but to me, it never says what they are really for......

I am not sure exactly what you mean. Tt was simpley this president laying out his terms for a Palestinian state. Bush did not ask to become involved in this mess, it was demanded of him. Look, if you live in fear of what the "next guy" will do then you are paralyzed. Bush has, to the best of his ability, articulated what is required before we spend any further blood or treasure in this regional conflict.

I hope you're right.

I don't live in fear of the next guy. I've faced death enough times it would be welcome at this point, if it would be of benefit to The Kingdom.

It was just a feeling I had and I wondered if anyone else had had a similar feeling listening to Bush. I am aware of the accuracy of your description of the speech--at least on its surface and for all intents and purposes.

I was speaking more of an underlying intuitive sort of thing . . . an unease that it would end up being similar to a much more sobering speech in the future.
