67. "Tired ideological battles" my aging, raging ass.
Edited on Tue Jul-12-11 07:58 AM by GliderGuider
Since when was wanting the make the world a more humane, egalitarian, integrated, peaceful, cooperative, altruistic and mindful place to live an ideological position? And what does it say about those who oppose such changes that they would characterize them that way?

The world has been sold a bill of goods by this man and his corporate backers.
