Well said. Israel *shakes head* Well lets not go there in this thread...lol

Until this whole fight stops being about 'us versus them' or really when you "simplify it down" 'good versus bad' or 'christianity versus islam' THAT is when terrorism while subside (but obviously not go away, how can it in a world such as this?)

I think when you stand up and say you are 'fighting the axis of evil' and then go on to say God Bless America etc etc, you are inciting something in people who ordinarily might just roll their eyes and stop at that. Honestly it seems that religious people hold THEIR religion up in the highest regard and that it is a part of who they are, no WONDER when they get called 'the evil side' the "wrong" side etc etc, they gonna get all het up about it!

Oh and on the book thing, just because GWB and his administration have only read 3 books between them, doesn't mean everyone who checks out a book on a 'bad bad' man is preening to be their protege! I believe by "monitoring" thing, its just another scare tactic to an already frightened dumb animal know as the en mass of America (that isnt meant to be inciterary, but more an observation of the country as a whole)

I guess that America still isn't in hell yet

IT WAS A HOAX!
Quote:
NEW BEDFORD — The UMass Dartmouth student who claimed to have been visited by Homeland Security agents over his request for “The Little Red Book” by Mao Zedong has admitted to making up the entire story.

The 22-year-old student tearfully admitted he made the story up to his history professor, Dr. Brian Glyn Williams, and his parents, after being confronted with the inconsistencies in his account.

Had the student stuck to his original story, it might never have been proved false.

But on Thursday, when the student told his tale in the office of UMass Dartmouth professor Dr. Robert Pontbriand to Dr. Williams, Dr. Pontbriand, university spokesman John Hoey and The Standard-Times, the student added new details.

The agents had returned, the student said, just last night. The two agents, the student, his parents and the student’s uncle all signed confidentiality agreements, he claimed, to put an end to the matter.

But when Dr. Williams went to the student’s home yesterday and relayed that part of the story to his parents, it was the first time they had heard it. The story began to unravel, and the student, faced with the truth, broke down and cried.

Crying like a little girly man hahahaha

I don't know why people do that. Attention I guess. But then to embellish the damned story is just so stupid. If you're going to make up something like that, stick to the same fucking story, you idiot!

it was a breaking point

i should have included

*if this is true*

there are policies and actions that the Bush administration has taken
that do support my contention that the country under this Administration
has gone to Hell in a handbasket

that said this story was really studid
from the get go

those of you that have blind faith in alls things W
and were justifying this behavior

get gold stars for honoring your loyalty oath

many times I stay away from sensational stories

with more time
the so-called facts, seem to evaporate

if this one put a little egg on my face
so be it

it may help my complexion
with time
i become more lovely

No, but it's amazing what Daddy's money and influential friends in the 'right' places can do.

Ahh. That's good to know. Certainly raised some interesting and ugly issues though, didn't it?

i'm glad it was a hoax

because it shocks and saddens me that more than one person in this thread posted that stories like these are the reason they no longer want to use public libraries.

i was suspicious when the guy said he needed to give his social security number for an inter-library loan. libraries usually have pretty strict privacy policies. a social security number is something our district makes it a point to never ask for.

Actually, the Social Security Number thing isn't that unlikely. Alot of colleges still use your SSN as your Student ID number, which you have to give any time you request a book even within the library, or to check your account. Our library site wasn't even secure, but we did it.

My college quit doing it about three years ago, but I know friends who still have to use it as their ID--and yes, have experienced identity theft as a result.
