    YO, Dubya

    Get the damned helecopters to Pakistan. I don't care what it takes, get them what they are asking for.

    Are you really that much of a clueless fucking idiot?

    Get the damned helecopters to Kasmir.

    Jesus, you clueless fucking asshole, do whatever it takes to help that country. Now. 24 hours from now will be to damned late.

    You want Osama? Get the freaking helecopters in there. Get the food, the water, the supplies, the equipment in there now. You want to solve the Pakistan - India debate over Kasmir over with? Get the fucking helecopters in there now.

    We picked a really bad time to have elected a clueless clown as president.

    • "Helicopters and C-130 transport planes took troops and supplies to damaged areas Sunday. When confronted by urgent appeals from villagers, Musharraf responded, "For heaven's sake, bear with us."

      Bush said he spoke with Musharraf and "told him that we want to help in any way we can."

      "Thousands of people have died, thousands are wounded, and the United States of America wants to help," Bush said from the Oval Office.

      Aziz said the American helicopters would be drawn from coalition military operations in neighboring Afghanistan.

      But Maj. Andrew Elmes, spokesman for NATO's 11,000-strong force, said it was outside the mission's mandate to operate beyond Afghanistan.

      The United Nations, Britain, Russia, China, Turkey, Japan and Germany offered assistance. An eight-member U.N. team of top disaster coordination officials arrived in Islamabad on Sunday."

      So that's what the TN stands for.

    • All right, I'll wade though all the emotionally charged Bush bashing for those nuggets of SCOX fun I get to see here. I'll quit whining.

      BTW: One of those nuggets is two of the investors in the "System for software source code comparison" live only minutes from my house :)

    • I don't care that you don't care. ;)

    • << YO, Dubya. Get the damned helecopters to Pakistan. >>

      Sorry, Skipper. But Algore _still_ lost the election.

      The Republican party controls the House.

      The Republican party controls the Senate.

      The Republican party controls the Oval Office.

      The Republican party controls the Supreme Court.

      And, no matter how much you piss and moan -- about this, that, or the other -- the above still remains true.

      Come, on! You don't give a flip about what's happening in Pakistan, or anywhere else! You just want to bitch out your frustrations, and are looking for an excuse to do so. Trust me, I understand this, I understand this very well.

      I do wish that you at least be a man, and at least be honest to yourself. There's nothing wrong with being frustrated and driven mad, because your side of the aisle has been out of power for over 20 years now (with few, short-lived exceptions), and is on a definite one-way trip to the ash heap of history.

      I understand all your anger and bitterness. I really do. And I wouldn't mind your pissfest, providing that you're at least honest about it.

      But puh-lease, don't pander and make yourself out like some kind of a martyr, tearing your heart out and throwing yourself to the lions, because of the supposed plight of those poor souls halfway across the world.

      Come on, you don't really give a damn about them. I know that. and you know that. You just want an excuse to bitch about Bush.

      That's fine. That's OK. Just go ahead and bitch your heart out. I always say that it's better to get these things out in the open, rather to keep all that anger and frustration bottled up inside you.

      I don't mind. Besides, it's rather entertaining to watch a left-wing wacko having a cow. And you really don't need to find some excuse to do that.

      Just let it rip!

        Perhaps not.

        >>The Republican party controls the House.

        >>The Republican party controls the Supreme Court.


        Ah, that explains the mess we're in.

        Things tend to get really messed up when one party controls everything. Especially the current Republican party where supporting the "party line" is pushed so hard. It is better when there is a balance between opposing parties and to pass legislation requires convincing members of the opposing party to break ranks. This tends to slow down bad laws from getting passed. Good laws tend to have broad bipartisan support, but when one party controls too much they can ram their laws down the other almost half's throat. This also causes instability and divisiveness.

        As for Dubya, I just don't think he is anywhere near up to the job. Never was, never will be. Unknown what would have happened if the election turned out different, but I do think from what I've seen after the election that there would have been more thought and consideration put into the position.

        But, it is what it is. The question now is where do we go from here? What kind of man should be the next president?

        A right-wing religious zealot?
        A left-wing zealot?
        Someone with a superb intellect?
        Or someone who makes the average joe feel good?

        What's it gonna be?

      • <Sorry, Skipper. But Algore _still_ lost the election.
        The Republican party controls the House.>

        That house is in obvious need of a cleaning.

        <The Republican party controls the Senate.>

        That chamber is in need of a scrubbing.

        <The Republican party controls the Oval Office.>

        I assume you mean Halliburton. It needs a Love Canal grade cleanup. And indictments.

        <The Republican party controls the Supreme Court.>

        That, will be handled in the afterlife, if there is a G_d at all.

        <And, no matter how much you piss and moan -- about this, that, or the other -- the above still remains true.>

        Read history. Read widely, across all boundaries.

        <Come, on! You don't give a flip about what's happening in Pakistan, or anywhere else! You just want to bitch out your frustrations, and are looking for an excuse to do so. Trust me, I understand this, I understand this very well.>

        I for one would bet my life otherwise. I may not agree on various things, but I hear truth from Dio on this.

        <I do wish that you at least be a man, and at least be honest to yourself. There's nothing wrong with being frustrated and driven mad, because your side of the aisle has been out of power for over 20 years now (with few, short-lived exceptions), and is on a definite one-way trip to the ash heap of history.>

        ? wtf

        <I understand all your anger and bitterness. I really do. And I wouldn't mind your pissfest, providing that you're at least honest about it.

        What you don't understand, you missed out on in kindergarten, and there is little hope now.

        <Come on, you don't really give a damn about them. I know that. and you know that. You just want an excuse to bitch about Bush.>

        I call bs. Compassion for others I realize is just not part of your expressed soul.
        If came down to it, I'd take a round for Bush, and suspect most of the other "Bush-beaters" here would beat me to it. Because I salute the rank, not the person. Trust me, in this case I truly do not salute the person.

        <That's fine. That's OK. Just go ahead and bitch your heart out. I always say that it's better to get these things out in the open, rather to keep all that anger and frustration bottled up inside you.>

        I refer you to your mirror.

        Left wing wacko? That's just funny. If Dio's left wing, I'm a decorated FBI agent.

        (unless you meant Flagon was holding a cow under her left wing; that is entirely possible)

      • There are no political parties in the US. It's equal opportunity self-centered greed.

        There are no political party platforms in the US, there is "I want mine now" and "not in my backyard"

        There are no "representatives of the people" in the US Congress, there are only "representatives of the large campaign contributors"

        Where I get pissed off is when those who swore to uphold the Constitution sell their vote to the highest bidder.

        Those fighting for the Constitution are not fighting for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, they are fighting for a bunch of rich, power wanna-bes.

        And it makes NO difference which side of the aisle ... they're all the same.

    • "Yep, there's your real mark of the brave. Just come in, stir up some undefendable shit, then leave because no-one will agree."
      By that you mean he interrupted an OT political rant and had the nerve to voice an opinion contrary to the circle-jerk in progress?

    • <<<I should have kept my mouth shut. I knew better. I apologize for having said anything. I will shut up now.

      ssm>>>>

      Yep, there's your real mark of the brave. Just come in, stir up some undefendable shit, then leave because no-one will agree.

      Funny, that seems to be a recurring message coming from the right-wingnuts: drop in, talk shit to the point of major disruption, then leave because it's too big of a task defend your words.

      We're still waiting for you to answer bystanders' questions about the current Bush administration. So? Where's the long speech? Tell us how Dubya saved us from the terrorists, or how he nominated the most qualified person available for the Supreme Court, or how his cabinet members are all qualified to handle their assignments... please do tell us, won't you?

    • Please, keep the damn politics off this board.

      I don't care if Bush eats roasted babies for breakfast. It has nothing whatsoever to do with SCOX which is supposed to be the topic of this board.

      • SCOX is violating many of the rules laid down in the Sarbanes Oxley act.

        Congresscritter Sarbox (a House Member from Ohio, a Senator from Maryland, and a Polymerization card from a YuGiOh deck) created the Sarbanes Oxley act to reign in the ridiculous behavior of U.S. executives, where they steal until they get caught, then use the "I'm as dumb as a box of rocks" defense.

        Senator Orin Hatch of Utah has a son named Brent who has worked on the SCOX case. There has been much speculation that there is some circuit there that protects SCOX from being examined by the Securities Exchange Commission.

        Given the current scandal around Tom DeLay of Texas now is not a good time for congressmen to be found doing anything at all shady.

        Freecode has mentioned that trying to get Sarbanes and Oxley to pay attention to this issue might just be a good thing, and I agree. I'll be writing a letter and phoning the offices of each of them some time next week.

        Politicians don't do the right thing unless its incidental to doing something politically beneficial. Hopefully one of them will take an interest in this matter and start inquiring as to why the SEC has not acted on the many obvious violations that have occurred.

        I was reacting to an event that happened in the last 24 hours that killed at least 10's of thousands of people.

        Let me put this in perspective for you. SCOX, on Friday, traded 750 shares total. Roughly $3,000 dollars.

        10,000 of thousands of people vs a freaking $3,000 dollar a day company?

        As they say on the NOVL board, blow me.

      • <<<Please, keep the damn politics off this board.

        <sarcasm>

        Coming from someone who is such a major contributor to this board...

        </sarcasm>

        Why not inject some SCOX criticism instead of adding to the "hideous" OT, like you just did.

        "Don't do as I do, do as I say...."

    • Agreed. It is going to be a lot tougher. India did not need help for the Tsunami. They could handle it on their own. India did not directly ask for help on this one either. They did not say they did not need it though...
