  - And what made me even MORE angry, was that nobody in the media shared my outrage...  IanDB1   Jun-29-08 05:07 PM   #2 
     - Don't get me started on Tipper Gore, either...  blondeatlast   Jun-29-08 05:11 PM   #5

  - WHAT is "Clipper Chip"  SmileyRose   Jun-29-08 05:09 PM   #3 
  - Not telling. Making you look it up yourself is half the point of posting this.  IanDB1   Jun-29-08 05:10 PM   #4 
     - OK, so I read 3 different links from google and still don't get it.  SmileyRose   Jun-29-08 10:05 PM   #16 
        - Indeed and at the time, I was furious. It seems almost a world away now. nt  blondeatlast   Jun-29-08 10:11 PM   #17

  - I had to look it up...  IndyOp   Jun-29-08 06:01 PM   #13 
  - I bet nobody has to look-up "FISA" or "Gitmo" or "Habeus Corpus" in 8 years. n/t  IanDB1   Jun-29-08 08:07 PM   #15 
     - Habeas Corpus, no. That's a common legal term. Gitmo, for some. FISA, probably for most.  Occam Bandage   Jun-29-08 10:18 PM   #18

  - ...  blondeatlast   Jun-30-08 05:34 PM   #27 
  - There should be a Nobel Prize for Completely Missing The Point.  IanDB1   Jul-01-08 06:18 AM   #28 
  - And Al Gore's so called "centrist" approach turned out well, eh?  depakid   Jul-01-08 06:22 AM   #30
