serge doesnt this kinda remind you of the vietnam days? when the country was run like a police state? somebody was telling me all about it- the fbi runnin around doing stuff n all.
"OK, if I respond to this post, then technically I'm agreeing with what Joshua says, and I could implicate myself and get my well-thought out and carefully constructed thread closed" "Allright then, I won't hit enter"
*Looks at the calendar and realizes that today is Veterans Day in the U.S.*
Hey wait a minute, men and women have fought and died so that I could have freedom of speech.
Let me just hit this enter button....................................
serge, im pissed we dont have veterans day off. We have millions of people who fought and died for the country- who now have leukemia from scud missiles, gulf war syndrome, the vietnam syndrome thing, etc etc(did you see that king-of-the-hill episode?), who were held hostage, etc.
and now all we can give them is one lousy day. can you imagine telling a veteran that? "here, sir- you and your friends now have 24 hours named after you. it doesnt matter though- we wont be remembering you, nor will we care about what you did back then. we just want to keep you old men and women smugly content"
I think you mean the after effects of Agent Orange in the Vietnam war, Josh. But I agree with you 100%. I couldn't sign up for the marines like I wanted to because I hadn't fully recovered from my surgery for my ACL and MCL tear in my left knee after high school. That disappointed me greatly.
