I'm no slouch myself.



Kevin Drum quotes Cliff May's deep thoughts about Saddam and the war:

It's easy to say that if we had left Saddam alone, nothing bad would have happened. But how is that different from what was said for years about Osama bin Laden?


Kevin points out that might be a good argument had somebody actually been saying that we should leave Bin Laden alone.

But I'm more concerned with May's statement itself. It bears a little too much resemblance in structure and cadence to Judge Smails famous speech dedicating his boat in "Caddyshack:"

It's easy to grin, when your ship comes in... and you've got the stock market beat. But the man worthwhile, Is the man who can smile... when his shorts are too tight in the seat.


Is Cliff May really Ted Knight?

He shouldn't sell himself short - he's a tremendous slouch.

Liberals would have us believe that ending the war in Viet Nam and leaving them alone would have somehow magically allowed things to calm down and proceed to some kind of pie-in-the-sky diplomatic dialogue followed by full "head in the clouds" trade relations over the course of several years.

We all see how that turned out.

Don,

Your sarcasm is duly noted.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
I ended up losing a few months of hard work
due to no backup. Do you have any methods to prevent
hackers?
