Mark the time: The main headline on the DU front page is a 9/11 'Loose Change' thread.
Edited on Fri Jul-27-07 12:38 AM by WilliamPitt
Bzzzt...cannot compute...Grovelbot must send thread to 9/11 forum...bzzzt...but on front page...melting...melting...what...a...world...what...a...world...

Dig it: http://www.democraticunderground.com /

No biggie, I just know there can be static when threads go downstairs, and I show up, and WHAM, there it is, hello, we're DU, come on in and have a seat, and tell me, what do you know about Bildebergers and chem trails and dolphins carrying nukes to create tsunamis? Nothing? Great...have you read my newsletter? Are you wearing a wire? What's the frequency, Kenneth?

:P

*fleeing*

I am only teasing. Please don't get angry. If we can't poke fun at ourselves, we're...well...pretty crappy boring people.

*fleeing again*

:) :)

8. You put olives in Ketel One?
The Republic is lost.

Unless they're lemon-flavored olives, or they taste like someone in the next room whispered "Vermouth" while walking away quickly.

Edited on Fri Jul-27-07 02:28 AM by WilliamPitt
:P

Never got martinis, or especially gin. I was mid-20s and in full-bore bar hop mode in San Francisco all during the freakin swing music craze. Everyone had to have martinis like the guys from Swingers. Me? I thought the stuff was good only for cleaning carbureators. And any who drank it were just posin'. Scotch for me, or Jamesons, or Bushmills if the IRA isn't about.

Gin. Bleh. I was eventually convinced there are, in fact, people who like gin. All the ones knocking it back a decade ago? Wine coolers.

Gin = wheat from the chaff, it seems.

But I never drink the stuff.

I'm all about the Vodka baybee.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here. This is the War Room."

dragging themselves through the copycat threads at dawn looking for a rec,
angelheaded progressives burning for the ancient heavenly broadband connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of the internets..."

23. You can get an honorable discharge from the military and...
still have a military obligation. The way it works is that when you sign up for so much time as active duty, you're still obligated for a certain amount of time even after discharge from active duty. The options for fulfilling an obligation can be reserves, guard or inactive reserve. It's possible that he either didn't realize he still had an obligation or ignored the remainder of his time.

24. I read that and it has not been posted on DU and should.
It was another attack just like Michael Moore.
I was trying to find his record on line but couldn't dispute what he said.

I think the army has a trump up charge.

33. It looks like he was stop-lossed and didn't want to play along..
Apparently, he was put on the "radar screen" because he was stopped for taking pictures of an Air Force base.


http://www.thedailystar.com/news/stories/2007/07/26/jpr...

But a handful of Rowes close friends knew he had not been "totally released," the source said.


In the summer of 2005 and with just a short time before his four-year enlistment was to expire, Rowe was arrested in the town of Oneonta for driving while intoxicated, the source said.


A routine check revealed he was AWOL, and he was taken into custody by Fort Drum military police, the source added.


However, once he was in Fort Drum, Rowe was released on his own recognizance to appear at his duty base with the 101st Airborne in Fort Campbell, Ky., the source said.


Rowe returned to Fort Campbell where he was told he would be "immediately" sent back to Iraq, and after unsuccessfully trying to fight the stop-loss order and AWOL charge, he decided to desert, the source said.


"He had honestly felt he had done his time," the source said.

34. I think he could have handled this better...
he wouldn't have been the first to go public and say he was refusing to deploy based on what he believed in regards to the war. Would probably have gotten a lot of support.

37. "I think he could have handled this better..."
Edited on Fri Jul-27-07 02:23 AM by WilliamPitt
A 9/11 Truther...might possibly handle something better???

Perish the thought.

:)

Maybe all of us could take that lesson.

Except me. Just here. In all other threads, I just suck. But here, we be cool.

Because this thread is supposed to be fun. And...brace yourself...that's OK.

Because if we can't tease each other, laugh at and with each other, if we're TOO HUGE IN OUR OPINIONS OF OUR BELIEFS AND WHO WE ARE to accept ribbing and smiling and well-meant fun between friends...

Then we're done. No impeachment, no 9/11 truth, no anything. Maybe that's why GD is always so brutal. Everyone is too bristled in defense.

I. Am. Teasing. 9/11. People. The sun will rise, and maybe some people will smile.

Be human. It's fun. :)

And feel free to mock my ass. I got called a drunk, enabler, liar, fraud, jealous of Cindy's media attention, Dem sycophant, Establishment whore, and that was over the last 48 hours...all because I wanted a plan beyond sloganeering...from people who want to see things get done...but have no tolerance for anyone trying to organize actual tactical plans.

If that ain't funny on it's face, well, you need to go to a water park or an arcade. Or read Vonnegut. Or H.S. Thompson. Or Leviticus, with an eye for satire...God: "Yea, thou shalt not fart audibly beside the boulder with the green moss on the Sabbath next to any who lie with sisters while wearing clothes of different thread after being near butter or fish or very small twigs in a nest filled with sin and flounder..."

Moses: "...wait...um...am I stoning someone, or just getting stoned...ah...help? Loud Scary Voice Guy? Shit. Guess I'll have to wing it."

Welcome to history. We get monotheism. Whee!

:hug:

All in the same lifeboat.

The ones who talk about suffering, injustice and state crime.

So smile.

Ooo.

He shoots.

He scores.

At least you're screen name isn't Baltimore-Oriole. $42 million on the bullpen, worst pitching in baseball. Quasar bad. Bad enough to have gravity, bad enough to bend light.

Toronto is over .500, 51-50.

Great. You're a crummy Hagar-era Van Halen album.

Eww.
