  1. i don't mean to get nitpicky, but i don't think this opinion is rooted in any factual evidence. i guess 'mostly' is the operative word i have a problem with. it's entirely possible i suppose, but i tend to think that maybe many get into service because they come from a family that's in the service and it's sort of the chosen path, a way to carve out a longterm living that's fairly solid. the patriotism thing is secondary. that along with what seems to me to be a possibly high number of people that enter the military out of necessity rather than some notion of being a splendid american serving the greater good. i could be totally wrong and this opinion is also rooted in zero evidence.
  2. that wiki entry for penn is extremely light on the company he heads/represents. burson-marsteller have rocked some gnarly "public relations" campaigns for some even gnarlier clients.
  3. ..and now penn is out and clinton is using it as a springboard to attack obama's-own-handling-of-his-campaign-drama's. politically a good call maybe, but she really is a try-hard these days..
  4. i didn't know that. i don't seek out brzezinski sound bites, hence 'some of what he's been rocking'...which would be how he warned that the international community would view the invasion of a country that was no threat to the US as an illegitimate act of aggression and noting that it would also threaten america’s leadership, saying that without a respected and legitimate law-enforcer, global security could be in jeopardy. his establishment peers/pals were singing quite a different story, but in any case, he's still a goofball, so there you have it.
  5. true, but let's not get too into the knee jerk obama hate just yet.. first of all, clinton's team is demonstrably worse than obama's, even with brzezinski in the mix. who's whispering in clinton's ear? well she's got real swell dudes like holbrooke, a fine man who thought suharto's aggression in east timor was gnarley town, and a guy who gets a boner over the thought of fucking with iran. then she's got that old jingoist hag madelaine albright and sandy berger, both of who think we need, yup, more billions for the military. they also think globalization is super fun and, if my memory serves me, also think iran could be a good time. her team is straight up about hard power, and if some of the retarded ass positions many of her advisors were taking before iraq, during iraq, pre-surge and post-surge are any indication of what a 'new' administration of old hat, establishment, washington insiders is going to be like...uh oh! it's not like her whole team are retarded hawks, just the real close important ones. obama on the other hand also happens to have some general, i forget his name, who was also super hyped on the fun the indonesians had with the east timorese. but aside from him, the majority of his team, as far as i'm aware, are fairly young(relatively speaking) and progressive, and nearly all of the positions (of importance) they have taken during this administration's staggering retardedness are still holding up nicely. i'm sure you could find and twist something out of some position in there, but generally speaking his team is more on the soft power tip, and from what i can tell from their respective pasts and positions on things, they would be a little more measured in world affairs and perhaps more willing to try new ideas, something i think is sorely lacking. as for brzezinski, i hate to admit it, but some of what he's been rocking about iraq has been more insightful than all of his peers combined. and really, he's so old it's not even funny how little he'll be influencing an obama administration.
  6. i recently found out clinton's chief strategist mark penn is a burson marsteller man, the greatest propaganda corporation on earth. alot of potential for political uncomfortableness right there, although i highly doubt anyone, either obama or mccain/repubs, would make any noise about it.
  7. hell no i don't want you to go on... i don't think it's 'copping out' making your vote actually count though. it's like when nader runs, yea i agree with a fuckload of what he represents, and it would be great if a guy who brings that amount of weight to real issues had an actual chance...but he doesn't. i'm talking actual vote time here, not support time, which i think is alot different. so voting for the guy doesn't do a damn thing and all it does in the end is allow me to say i was apart of teh democratic process whilst washing my hands of any real shit that comes down the pike. no? but i guess if you're like you, mccain is just as bad as obama who is just as bad as hillary, who is just as bad as bush...
  8. ah, so he is apart of the NWO clique looking to take over earth. my my we get pissy easily. it's okay casek, we all know you're so dialed in maahhnn!
  9. ah, so he's a wolf in sheeps clothing? he's apart of the nefarious NWO clique?? it all makes sense now...
  10. watching the pundits is amusing, although it's akin to somebody clawing their nails down a chalkboard sometimes. yesterday on cnn that rick sanchez hotshot had viewers go to the site to answer the following question: "should sen. obama talk about america's blemishes?". the fact people actually find this to be a legitimate question alone is scary, despite the responses invoking the whole 'unpatriotic' thing.
  11. you can totally apply that logic to mccain as well as obama. in any case, it's a pretty weak complaint.
  12. here's a little something i've learning over the years at 12oz...bitching and moaning about obam-daddy (or anything else for that matter) on the internet is about as useful as a 3-legged cat covering up shit on a hardwood floor. and while every hater is sitting back putting forth much effort to hold the candidates to some unheard of barometer of morality & splitting hairs for any potential candidates words/actions/campaign/pastor, george bush and dick cheney are still in office and still sitting atop a massive pile of shitscuzz that nobody seems to really have the energy to do anything about. whatever pops yer zits though...
  13. it's amusing to see a guy like spitzer, with his background, being crucified for what are pretty puny crimes in relation to what the executive branch has been getting away with for 8 years. how does that work? granted he fucked up unbelievably bad, and for something so mind numbingly stupid at that. the sad part is that i think spitzer is probably a genuinely decent guy at heart, but like all of us, he's human and made such a sickeningly stupid follie that he'll spend the rest of his days in crushing regret and humiliation while his family is left to wallow in the knowledge their own flesh and blood betrayed them in the worst possibly way.
  14. i'm not holding my breath for any cheney indictments. cheney is on some upper echelon elite power shit. they may try to burn him, but he'll slick out of it. a guy with his background will never end up in the slammer.
