Everyone is hereby given notice to remove his or her Halloween yard displays by November 7. If they are still up after this coming weekend, I will not be held responsible for my actions. You have been warned.
I think the weekend after Halloween is sufficient time for people to deflate the crap on their yards and shuffle it all back to the garage. There is no reason to keep this crap up any longer.
Yet, I have a bad feeling about this. Why do I think I may now see blow-up turkeys in people’s yards? Or even worse, they go straight to Christmas decorations 2 months before the holiday!
Maybe I should teach them all and create a big blow up leg lamp to go in my front yard! Hell, I know I could sell at least two of them! Now that would be classic!
Can I use any more exclamation points in the last 4 sentences?
Just found out yesterday I will be going to San Francisco at the end of November. Seems rather strange that I will be gone a week, but only 3 days of work. Two whole days will be spent traveling. What a waste.
I was a bit surprised that only one person had any sort of disagreement with my thoughts about protestors supporting terrorists. Of course, they missed the point on part of it. You have a right to exercise your freedom of speech. No one is telling you not to dissent from the government. But when your actions encourage our enemy to fight harder or are used by the enemy to demoralize our troops, you are effectively hoping they will surrender or die.
You had also wanted provide some proof to back up the assertion that war protests are fanning the flames of the insurgency in Iraq. It seems quite common for people to ignore the proof that is out there. The letter from Al-Zaqari to Al-Zawari (don’t care about spelling on those bastards) states that usuing the media is important. It is the same strategy that is used in Vietnam. The fact that newspapers had stories ready to go once a soldier had passed is proof. Besides, how many good stories do you see CNN, ABC, CBS, or NBC reporting on in Iraq? It is always death they report. They do not talk about children whose lives have been saved. They do not talk about how the Iraqi Army or Police have been trained or how they take great pride in what they are doing for their country.
You say the major media, both local and national, did not cover these protests. Depends on where you live. I saw it. It didn't deserve major coverage, but still got it.
Fact is Anonymous, you probably hide from the truth. Just as you hide your name. Do you read any website that will give you the opposite opinion? Do you read independent news outlets? It would seem you do not as you would get that information. Even calling it an “insurgency” is incorrect. That would imply that they are fighting Iraqis. They are not. They are fighting international terrorists. People that do not give a flying f@#* about the Iraqi people. The Syrians, Saudis, Iranians, etc. that are killing Iraqis all in the name of religeon are the problem, not good guys as you would like to think.
Furthermore, you show that you basically hate this President and will sleep with any dog that agrees with you, no matter their intent. Blunder-thon. I wish you had extrapolated on that subject more. By no means would I say would they have done in Washington is great, but it sure isn’t as bad as you or other haters would believe. Have you noticed the economy? Nah. You think the price of oil is the real topic they’re ignoring is how employment is at highs and how two hurricanes didn’t slow down GDP. International policy? More countries are experiencing forms of democracy in the Middle East than ever before. The Afghanis and Iraqis are free of tyrannical rule. The Syrians left Lebanon. Sounds like failure to me. Or are you going to give the “the world hates the United States” speech too. Here is a hint: the world has really liked us to begin with. See the United Nations for further proof. I bet you also think that Clinton was one of our greatest (cough cough) presidents as well though he accomplished what? And don’t even try to give him credit for the economic boom of the 90s. If you do, then you know nothing about economics.
You can think what you would like. My words won’t change your mind. Just don’t go harming our military.
And let me get back to talking about drinking and stuff.
