What is the most outrageous thing you heard someone say this past week?
For me it had to be "*" saying that their is no reason to hold anyone accountable for faulty info about Iraq WMD because his re-election is basically a mandate that he did the right thing and that American People believe it.


Paraphrased basically but you get the idea.

2. The story
about Williams receiving money for the no child left behind act in order to promote it. Shame on them!

3. "the bad thing about Abu Grahib is that we got caught"
yup - a Bush voter at work said it, and all the conservatives nodded in agreement like the bootlickers they are. Oh, and of course they all call themselves CHRISTIANS.

5. the hypocracy is unbearable
As a Christian myself, I can't fathom how one could be of this faith and be a republican at the same time. It's just a horrible hypocritical oxymoron.

I posted a 20 foot sign on the freeway in Columbus before the election that said "Jesus was a Liberal!"

7. Rush Limbaugh said
that the sulfer-dioxide(I think he said sulfer-dioxide) exhaust given off by cars etc. is reflecting the sun's light and keeping the temperature on the earth cooler than it otherwise would be, so we have to KEEP driving our SUVs to stave off global warming.

8. Today's Fort Wayne Journal Gazette has this story on page 7
of the main section. I puked when I read it, especially because Dubya's smirking mugshot was at the top! The Journal Gazette is pretty Hoosier-right-wingish, so it surprised me the story wasn't on page one. Perhaps the editors are feeling just a teency-weency sense of shame at "our fuhrer's"- leadership?

10. The most outrageous?
My boss telling me the next two years of work will be done in six months. Work is killing me faster than any election regrets.

12. Bringing peace to Iraq
A woman came up to us during our protest for peace and said she didn't like what we were doing and it was right for us to invade Iraq. When we asked her why we went into Iraq if there were no WMD she said we went in "to bring peace to Iraq." We asked how killing 100,000 Iraqis was bringing peace she said, "That's just the price of war." Then we just walked away as she is a lost soul.

13. Peace through killing?
Edited on Sun Jan-16-05 03:54 PM by Confound W
That's shockingly stupid, but not surprising.
Some people are simply stupid.

edited for clarity.

14. The world has plenty of lost souls
To save them all is beyond the ability of the few remaining souls whose locations are known and accepted by the finders of lost souls.

15. "Do you really want to know everything your government does?"
This particular person believes that "big brother" knows best.
