VA HOSPITALS SUFFER HIRING FREEZE
In spite of a massive influx of patients, VA Hospitals across America remain crippled by a hiring freeze. Perhaps it's time those with "Support Our Troops" bumper stickers contacted their representatives.

It's a doggone shame.

I'd like to dedicate this thread to my missing dog, Taffy and of course all the lost lives this lack of funding will cause.

"WE ARE LEGION!"

Now fall on your knees and worship the one true god:



on edit: ooops, sorry i forgot to be all lovey-dovey

Please allow me to introduce myself
Im a man of wealth and taste
Ive been around for a long, long year
Stole many a mans soul and faith
And I was round when jesus christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I stuck around st. petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank
Held a generals rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made
I shouted out,
Who killed the kennedys?
When after all
It was you and me
Let me please introduce myself
Im a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But whats confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me lucifer
cause Im in need of some restraint
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or Ill lay your soul to waste, um yeah
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down
Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
Tell me baby, whats my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, whats my name
I tell you one time, youre to blame
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah
Whats me name
Tell me, baby, whats my name
Tell me, sweetie, whats my name
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah

I'm BACK IN BLACK!
Back In Black Lyrics

Artist(Band):AC/DC

Send AC/DC polyphonic ring-tone to your cell phone


Back in black
I hit the sack
I've been too long I'm glad to be back
Yes, I'm let loose
From the noose
That's kept me hanging about
I've been looking at the sky
'Cause it's gettin' me high
Forget the hearse 'cause I never die
I got nine lives
Cat sized
Abusin' every one of them and running wild
CHORUS:
'Cause I'm back
Yes, I'm back
Well, I'm back
Yes, I'm back
Well, I'm back, back
(Well) I'm back in black
Yes, I'm back in black

Back in the back
Of a Cadillac
Number one with a bullet, I'm a power pack
Yes, I'm in a bang
With a gang
They've got to catch me if they want me to hang
Cause I'm back on the track
And I'm beatin' the flak
Nobody's gonna get me on another rap
Don't look at me now,
I'm just makin' my bed
Don't try to push your luck, just get out of my way
CHORUS
Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back
Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back
Well, I'm back, back
Well I'm back in black
Yes I'm back in black
hooo yeah
Ohh yeah
Yes I am
Oooh yeah, yeah Oh yeah
Back in now
Well I'm back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back
Back in black
Yes I'm back in black
Out of the sac!

Everything Is Different Now

(Don Henley/Scott F. Crago/Timothy Drury)







I hate to tell you this, but Im very, very happy

And I know thats not what youd expect from me at all

Im not the kind to smile and bow out gracefully

I always wanted to take it to the wall



But I found somebody with a heart as big as Texas

I found an angel with the golden wings

She saw me down here in the dark somehow

And everything is different now



Yeah, I miss the old crowd sometimes

And the wild, wild nights of running

You know, a starving soul cant live like that for long

You go around in circles that just keep getting smaller

You wake up one morning and half your life is gone

I got so tired of that; I got so lonely

I dropped down and I called out to heaven

Send me someone to love.

And heaven shot back, You get the love that you allow.

And everything is different now



Oh, and its sweet to know

The wisdom that living brings

Since I got a telegram from the god of simple things



She said, I dont care what you do for a living.

She said, I dont care what kind of car you drive.

All I want to know right now is what do you believe in

And what it means to you to be alive

Will you stand here in this fire with me?

Are you ready for another life?

So I bit that bullet and I took that vow

And everything is different now

Everything is different now
