Arizona / Re: If you are attending U of A next year
« on: June 08, 2005, 03:39:54 AM »
I'm pretty sure I'll be doing the bridge program. I've been doing mind-numbing work for the past few years and any warm-up exercises before the semester will be very helpful. Right now I'm living in Korea, so I thought that getting housing in absentia would be a huge ordeal, but it was actually very easy. I managed to get all the lease paperwork done by fax (and mailing in a deposit check). I went to UA for UG, so I know the area around campus, and when I found this place right in the middle of the University Blvd. shopping district, I jumped on it. There is a housing guide full of PDF's at wildcat.arizona.edu, look on the right side of the page for the link. I look forward to meeting everyone and hope you (we) all settle in easily.

Holla. There's a chance I might defer, but most likely, I'll be there @ Aug. 1. There's more of me on lawschoolnumbers.com look for dinobuddy.

Bear down,
Andrew

Do you think they really spend their 5 daily prayer breaks praying or at least some of them jacking off on their complimentary prayer rugs?

wow.  that's just about the rudest thing i've ever read. such a fine example of sophisticated, educated, enlightened american.  makes me proud of my country.  shur does.


in terms of the discussion at hand here, america is in a tough position now.  if the prisoners in gitmo weren't terrorists before, they sure as hell are going to be if/when/if they're ever released. 

And then the next logical step is,  if they've released any people, isn't that admission that they didn't have the goods to really hold them in the first place?  I have to agree with sleepyguyyawn on this one.  He brings up a good point.

So as to their culpability, i'm fascinated by the ease with which many of you make the jump from suspected terrorist to guilty terrorist.

whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?  is that too basic of a concept here?  i guess my litmus test is, holy darn, what if I or someone I loved was mistakenly rounded up? can you imagine, so many years of your life just gone?  no avenue for redemption.  no way of contacting the people you care about.  is the human aspect of this lost on you?

 I might be wrong here, but weren't a good number of these "terrorists" captured because of money based rewards.  "turn your turban-headed friend in for cash?"  Shouldn’t we be concerned about the possibility (it seems proven fact now) that there is/was innocent people being held there? 

If you're not outraged by that proposition, then you aren't american in the true sense of the word.  you have little respect for the values that this country was built on.  If you insist on thinking in black and white, then this should make sense to you.
 

war=suspected terrorist=guilty terrorist=not getting out any time soon. any questions?

those fvckers are lucky to be alive. how's that for 'human aspect' (whatever the hell that is)? no 'human aspect' in the torture rooms of iraq i guess... but wait this IS the liberal agenda: poop on bush. its way too obvious youve led sheltered and callow lives, and the others are outright socialists trying to suck some power from the proverbial cock in the name of love and equality for all bipedals. this is a just cause, a few mistakes are made, such is life, get over it.

'the values this country was built on?' are you on crack? speedballs? if i remember correctly killing people and taking over their land, as well as war, was exactly what this country was built on. get your head out of your fatuous ass.

im not outraged one bit by the proposition, but ive served in the military. so please tell me more about what an 'american' really is. i'm also an immigrant and more 'american' than you will ever be(again whatever the hell 'american' should mean).

since most will still be there when you get out of law school i will be looking for all you wonderful benevolent 'humanists' to be working for the 'civilians' at gitmo pro bono. yeah that'll happen. youll be too busy sucking down your starbucks and bitching about how evil republicans are.

I... I love you.

The person that I had in mind when starting this post, however, is Snoop.  He has developed his own language . . . which is more pervasive than Esperanto, he's hilarious, he's remarkably intelligent and he's one of the *note, not "the"* greatest rappers of all time.  He'd also likely be accompanied by a ton of hot women and wheelbarrels full of weed.

Does anyone even know his real name?  That, in and of itself, goes a long way in demonstrating how cool he is.

{Snoop's real name is Calvin Broadus. Don't ask me how I remember that}.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Off to U Arizona

I'm thinking about it. Right now I'm in Korea and will be until the end of July, at which point I will be moving (with my wife and whatever I've gathered over 4 years here) straight to Tucson. I'd love some time to adjust once I get back, but I think the bridge program will be a good idea for me. I've been out of the academic loop for about 5 years now and I'm already 30 (gasp), so I guess that qualifies me as non-traditional. Yeah, hell, why not. Count me in. See you there.
