a grand facebook debate...

Heavynews notes that, at the end of business Monday, the flag of an occupying power was finally brought down and the skies over Florence, Ala., are clear again.

the u.s. is pulling outta iraq... ?

Heavynews at 7:50pm March 30
Well, if they are, it's only to intensify the battle in Afghanistan. Good. I'm more concerned that we quickly pull U.S. forces out of Detroit.

or out of north america, eh... ?

Heavynews at 8:07pm March 30
Only if we're going to mass them at the Mexican border. That'll stimulate some economies.

uhm, does it matter if mexico's also in north america... ?

I always regarded "North America" as more a political distinction than geographic, easily distinguished as those places where ice hockey is played. Mexico is much more analogous at this point to Central America's fake governments front for drug cartels. Besides, mister, when we get through annexing them, they'll be the 51st state. Or maybe the 52nd. Or, if you're our president. the 58th or maybe 59th.

i'll consider that an endorsement...

I would vote for you, if only to expose you ... and to get you out of the education system and stop your poisoning of young minds, But that's just me.

dude, didn't they tell you... ? mississip is in the minority... america is a blue state... but that's just me... ;)

Heavynews at 8:50pm March 30
Yes, well, you would think that. Something tels me you're conflating "majority" with "right," and that particular heavier-than-air craft rarely gets off the ground for long.

agreed... ! (surprise!)... all i know, aside from parrying your assertions rather effectively, is that what is "right" is we stop acting as an imperialistic modern-day rome, killing the brown-skinned aliens because we can (might making right, as you appear to have it), or is it not your concern that we're, at the same time, as rome was, spiraling the porcelain punchbowl because of that precise arrogance to which you allude for the past 8 - nay, 50 - years... ?

I feel like Frank Sinatra on SNL listening to Luther Campbell of 2 Live Crew. All I'm hearing is clicks and buzzes. Better luck at or DailyKos.
