Go Cheney yourself

Students at the conservative Mormon college Brigham aren't too enthused about the proposed visit of the terrorist war profiteering gangster Dick Cheney:-

They're not really upset about Republican policies so much as the man's personal integrity and so on. It's actually sort of pathetic in my eyes - the fact he uses "foul language" and doesn't "represent what [they] represent" is the least of his concerns. Lame protest if you ask me.

they did call him "morally dubious."

yes, they don't like to hear "fuck," but i think it also has something to do with the list of manufactured lies that got us into Iraq, the continual denying of reality about Iraq, the authorization of torture, Gitmo, Abu Ghraib, the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis (have you heard? some think that the 650,000 dead is actually as good an estimate as any).

and these are Utah Mormans -- Utah is the reddest state in America.

I think the complaints about Cheney's character are perfectly legitimate, and I agree with them. You can't expect a Mormon school to oppose the adminisitration's policies or not to object to profanity, even though I couldn't care less about Cheney's profanities, I object to his war profiteering.

That book looks quite interesting. And it's brand new!

I had no idea Chrysler has been sold to Benz!

i think they paid something like 30+ billion for it a few years back

and the best offer has been around 5-6 billion


no wonder they lost the war

Chrysler are tanking here because of the reputation attached to their quality. You'd think that's something Daimler-Benz of all people would have been able to turn around.

The problem here is they are overpriced new due to being imported, and in relatively small numbers, but then re-sale value is just ridiculously low. Jeeps especially have a reputation for being overpriced pieces of junk that lose thousands and thousands the second you roll them out of the dealer.

We won't silence Dick Cheney. We will make our voices count. Join the growing number of BYU students, faculty, alumni, and friends who want to make their voices count

torture was a necessary component of the greatest moral crusade in the history of our planet -- the removal of Saddam Hussein.

it doesn't matter.

all that matters is that someone is there to walk out into the Kuwaitti and Saudi Arabian oil fields and talk to that oil, tell that oil it's safe and secure, tell that oil that someone loves it very much, and that it's very pretty oil and is going to find a loving home in a beautiful SUV in a suburb outside of Atlanta.
