Wow thanks everybody! I love being able to speak in English -- even when debating -- seriously you have no idea :)
analogsky: thanks! yeah, Im seeing this...
klemmy: I agree with you on the cuts negatively affecting the economy.
SFS: Yes, I agree that Bush has been faulted for things that he probably shouldnt be. My example would be the drugs issue -- yes, the man did drugs when he was younger, but people change. Leave it alone, and let him TRY to run the country with his non-stoked brain (although sometimes...). Yes, its true, Bush didnt shoot the heads off of and laugh at the children I saw, BUT, Bush has promised all of those joining the marines money for college -- alot of people from my highschool joined for that very purpose... not to fight in a war that (in my opinion) is everyday evolving more and more into an oil war (I didnt used to think the war was for oil, only for freedom for Iraqis, but now I ask myself "how can they be free if theyre all dead?"). They joined the marines because their families have no money and they want to make them PROUD by going onto college. Im sure the people that have done such horrible things were either fucked up before joining in the war effort, or, became crazy because they were young, scared, and just wanting to go to school. Just wanting an education. They knew of a war, they knew they'd have to fight, they were willing to do that in the beginning. But, after such a long time, with Saddam being caught and put back into his own country, no sign of Bin Laden, and knowing that the president has no idea as to what theyre going through over there (really, he may hear of it, know it, but he doesnt KNOW what it feels like), and oftentimes seems to forget about it, I'd be pretty pissed off too. Id probably go crazy too and shoot people. The country has been torn down, we are rebuilding, the Iraq situation is slowly turning into something better... but my big concern (and fear) is the Iran threat. First Iraq, now Iran... then Syria, then Turkey, then hell, lets take over Armenia (European, yes, but mostly of Islam) -- destroy and reconstruct; kill, bury, and apologize. Anyways thanks for your comments, you're constructively critical and you rock :)
300mhz: no, I think youre better off the way you are - life must be happier that way (I care WAY too much sometimes, even about stupid things)
tetesuro: THanks! :) Yeah, Im probably better off not worrying about it... but theyre my neighbors now, so, you know -- naturally Im a bit more concerned.
Siren: Thanks! Me too. :)
Minkybear: hey! :) Yeah, war anywhere is bad. Thats something else that bothers me -- doesnt the president and his cabinet see that America is made of immigrants (originally and some now). If he truly cares about his republic, he'd definately consider this -- more than once. I hope war doesnt come there, and I hope you get to go someday -- stop by in Turkey first though! Its REALLY gorgeous here :) BTW do you play violin?? Just curious because I looked at your SK page, and I saw the pic. I play viola!!!
gonzophysicist: NICE T-SHIRT!!! Where'd you get it? And a nice button too! I left you an eggplant recipie on your page. :)
delete yourself: thanks! (hey, at least you were honest, right?)
SubSonik: I like the SK policy AWBB2k4. Thanks for the welcome! :)
