bl825, you seem to have such a balanced temperament.

Combine that with the large sunglasses & the purse...I'm like, seriously, your biggest fan.

bl825, who is the person in your avatar?? It must be a TV/movie celebrity..I don't watch TV or many movies, so I'm usually out of the loop.

Blake Lively from GG.

Ohhh. How do you answer the accusation that you may have in your possession a pair of large sunglasses (Gucci or Prada) and possibly an oversized purse?

The way I answer all accusations: no comment. 8)

that never look quite right in police report.

My point is that while there is a debate about constitutional powers involved, the idea of upholding the constitution is probably not the best way to go about arguing against torture.  (That's what it looked like you were doing.)  Why bring the constitution into it at all if you don't have to?  It's illegal, any way you cut it.
Oh yea...you're delicious and lean, but unsustainable and not to be consumed daily.

I'm sorry Julie, I can't hear you over the fireworks that are going off above the ferris wheel that I'm riding with bl825.

actually, no:  here how come up:

I dont see whats so bad about it.

Of course there's nothing bad about prosecuting torturers. Anything else would be hypocritical.

I disagree. I think the military should be able to do whatever they feel is necessary. It's too bad that it became so public.

ever take oath where swear uphold constitution?

nobody ever swear uphold geneva conventions.

Okay, okay, maybe I just misread the thing, okay?  :D

I still wouldn't have gone straight to the Constitution though.  :P
