People -- dahova is not George Bush. Don't unload everything on him. thx.

Of course not. I've made that exception for him earlier; he didn't take it. Since then he's managed to do just well telling us how he views the world.

Go on with your bad self, you f-cking tool.

Does hiding behind a tank and an automatic weapon make you feel tough? Did your balls increase in size when you entered the Corps? Is your d*ck bigger than a civilian's now?

How does it feel to know that your country is being overrun by homos and illegals and ragheads and asians and brownskinned people and granola eating hippie electric car driving liberals?

How does it feel to know that women don't stay in the kitchen and cook your food and do your laundry and lick your a$$hole and are taking your jobs and your sexual power? Does it make you want to go lift more weights, bash some more nerds, slap a female dog, shoot an Arab?

How does it feel to know that right now people are burning flags and pissing on your 2nd Amendment rights and taking GOD and JESUS out of the schools and throwing them in the dumpster?

How does it feel that people are telling your president to go to Hell because he's among the most insane fundamentalist terrorist out there? How does it feel that you and those like you are finally in the minority?

Are you scared now, or just pissed? Are you able to formulate any thoughts or emotions beside that arrogant, hubrisitic macho act you're putting on, or will the Corps let you think?

How does it feel that while I'm typing this I'm stroking the crotch of my boyfriend, while he's playing with my a$$hole? How does it feel that we're thinking of you when we do it, in your camo, sitting on your tank (ooh, how phallic!), sweaty, muscle bound? How does it feel to know that you make me hard?

I'll let you come slap me around, tough guy? You can drive your Hummer over here and I'll give you a hummer right back.

How does it feel that over 75 percent of this country thinks that this war is ridiculous, that right now Congress is passing a bill opposing the "surge" (oh how sexual that term is)? How does it feel that the Cheney's and O'Reilly's and Wolfowitz's of this world are on their dying breath?

I still bet you're too chicken-sh!t coward to look an Iraqi in the eye and to tell them that you still think that what you're doing is right.

I was specifically linking those enlightened comments by the US soldier in that thread.

The Kerry comment was a reference to his botched joke:

"You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you can do well. If you donít, you get stuck in Iraq.Ē

Not surprised, but saddened.

Maybe Kerry was right...

Well I have plenty of problems with the way this war has been conducted. A good majority of the reasons the insurgancy has sustained itself in my opinion, is that the way we fight in Iraq is geared towards appeasing those who no matter what, would critisize this president. I am not a die hard Bush guy, but there is a greater fight going on in Iraq. And that is against radical Islam. America would have had to confront this problem in some arena at some point even if 9/11 hadn't happened. Do you honestly think that if we had never invaded Iraq and just solved the Afghanistan problem that all these threats would have went away? They would'nt have.

Going to war with Iraq was a noble endeavor. Regardless of why we went in, we liberated the county and brought freedom to those people. Now, the nation as a whole has NOT embraced the concept of freedom, there are many people in Iraq who still live in huts, no electricity. You can lead a horse to water but can't force it to drink it.

In my opinion, Iran was a more severe threat to national security than Iraq. After the Gulf War, the Iraqi military was pretty much desimated as a standing army. The war with radical Islam will continue long after most of the "soon to be lawyers" on this site pay off their loans. I wouldn't say that lives have been wasted in Iraq, I think if we pack up and left today one could ask, "what the hell did we fight for?" We will never achieve a total victory in Iraq or any of these nations. They have essentially sucked at life since biblical times and who are we to think we can change that. I would also attribute the fact that there have been no attacks from any radical Islamist groups on American soil to the intel and combat ops being conducted in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as across the world.

It's so sad that you buy into this "us vs them" mentality. It's even sadder that we give bigots tanks and guns.

Fighting in Iraq ABSOLUTELY equals fighting for your freedom, if it doesn't I wish I could send you over there in full gear during 130 degree heat in July and tell me that I am doing it for big oil or W. You need to re-evaluate where your freedom is derived from, and where it has derived from since the revelotionary war. Because of the bravery of the few, the many enjoy freedom. Period.

As they say, "If you can read, thank a teacher. If you can read in English, thank a Marine."

Oh please, cry me a f-cking river. You signed your life away to be a tool for a worthless f-ing cause, so don't go appealing to that sympathy ploy. I feel sad that lives (both US and Iraqi) are being lost for a ridiculous reason, but I don't feel sorry for you if you're too f-ing arrogant to see that Iraq posed no threat to our freedom, nor did they ever.

This is a worthless argument. So long as you're over there you have to believe that you're doing it for a noble and worthwhile cause. It's probably a normal human reaction to the fear and stress and danger you guys face. Come back and see me in 5 years when we're still fighting the same pointless fight, killing more and more people for nothing more than hubris, intolerance, and making some bank for a few rich white guys.

Can you even look into the eyes of an Iraqi person and still believe that you're doing something noble?

I've been eating turkey sandwiches and driving a K-car for four years of college.  I am going to do it for three years of law school.  If doing it for 3-5 years of legal practice means that my 30th birthday present is no debt and a six-figure salary, happy birthday to me.

This simple advice should be loudly shouted at all potential law students.

Prognostication from the hip:

A year before the midterm elections of 2006, Senator Clinton was hedging to the right (Pro-Life rallies in Utica, etc) based upon the perceived shift in the populace that accompanied the 2004 election.  Emboldened by the results in November 2006, she has hurled herself headlong back to her husband's posture (football that she is).

Recognizing that the Democrats have overestimated the mandate of the "not-Bush" midterm, the Republicans will seize an opportunity to play centrist to Dean's pinkos.  Not wanting to counter the Dem's "who-can-be-more-against-the-invasion" fringe-fest with an equally incendiary Mormon or risky New Yorker, the Republicans will give the nod to Senator John McCain. 

Facing off against the most disliked woman in America or the (potentially) youngest President in American history, the oldest President in American history will ride his track-record of co-authoring bills with Democrats to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Nice story.

But Edwards will win, despite the efforts of that c-nt Bill Donahue to discredit him for the same things that his crew does continuously.

Fox isn't just pro-America, they're pro-bigoted, irrational chickenhawks with a dash of white nationalistic hubris and just a sprinkle of f-ing retarded. They'd also just lie about all that and call everyone else unpatriotic.

FWIW, fighting insurgents in Iraq hardly equals protecting our freedom. It's more like getting yourselves shot at and killed for a ridiculous reason for a bunch of batshit ignorant politicians who don't have a personal investment in the casualties over there. Even Michael Savage will point that out.

All the same, stay safe. With any luck after all this sh-t settles we can start going after those who deserve to be put on trial for war crimes.

A good blogsite that compiles a lot of great information about the travesty of the media and right-wing politics.

We had 6 courses my 1L year at Santa Clara. That'll teach me to be a retard on the LSAT.


You, Halfie and a belated, halfhearted "yeah you got me, I have an agenda" from whoever the hell "Last life" is does not add up to most of the posters...I wish we were the only ones who sure would have made for a funnier thread...

Hardly belated and half-hearted, though. I never pretended I was doing anything otherwise than flinging shite from the beginning.

I differ from those in that the prestige whoring and smug attitude bother me. It's about as worthless as me bitching about it on this thread, only there are real world implications in his case. And I won't fail to keep flinging those deuces he keeps dropping right back in his face (if for no other reason than that I'm a rotten lout, though with the perhaps "naive" and "virtuous" notion that he might one day pull his head out of his own ass).

pls explain

List the goals you have set for yourself post-law school. You can do it here, or just run them through your head. What does it suggest to you?

Also, I'm not expecting an answer to this. Play around with it for awhile; see what your priorities are, and what that says about yourself. 

I have some guesses. If I'm right, I'm a petty lout and you're a worthless, smug pile of sh*t. But I could very well be wrong. In that case, oh well, I'm still a petty lout and you're a contributing member to society that used that advantages that his degree afforded him to their utmost potential.

I prefer the latter.
