Re: Plane Hits Building...

MBM ·
I never said it never existed. Quite the contrary. I just said it never hit the Pentagon. For example, say Cheney's order to shoot down all incoming planes was actually executed on this plane. Is it so implausible, in the panic of 9/11, for someone (Rove?) to manufacture the story that that flight hit the Pentagon as opposed to was shot down by American planes? Can you understand the extraordinary political risks associated with a president - already with the shakiest of politcal footings -...

Tis you who should pick up a drink (and a clue). The plot gets thicker by the minute! So now we have TWO missiles! We shoot down the plane for some reason. And then we go on to shoot our own selves at the Pentagon. And then presumably clean up the "real" crash site of the plane and litter the Pentagon with the bodies and fuselage. This sounds reasonable to you?? THIS? sounds better and more realistic than a plane ran into the Pentagon? Weee! Now we have a Smart Missle that is bright enough...

Frenchy - darling - do you understand anything about politics? Do you understand that a weak president shooting down an American plane would be political suicide? What if they shot the plane down and it really didn't have any "terrorists" on it? They made a mistake and thought a plane that was returning to land was in "attack mode" and shot it down. Who knows? Do you know anything about Dick Cheney that would lead you to believe that he would NOT shoot down an American plane? If the primary...

You keep waffling here. Are you saying that you want to be able to fantasize about getting these men or are you honest to goodness really wanting the right to hold out for the status-symbol-trophy-husband? Fantasies are free. And you have the right do hold out for whatever you want anyway. If that's what you're about then you just have to ignore what people say. But if what you're really saying is that this what to shoot for then I know I'm going to get a lot of hate for what I'm about to...

This is NOT the point, AG. No one is encouraging women to date only a Denzel. No one is saying Denzels are the only quality men. No one is saying that we want the right to hold out for a Denzel.

Two comments: One, it's funny that this wasn't reported until 24 hours after the incident occurred! That it was not reported by the White House And that his "in perfect condition" azz had medical staff and an ambulance following him around on everywhere he goes! Secondly, I thought quail couldn't fly!! So how did he shoot that man in the neck and cheek and chest?? Shouldn't he have been shooting downward??

That was bb's and buck shot is just a little smaller. I think that there is more to this than meets the eye too MBM. But the jokes surrounding this are just absolutely HILARIOUS!

This is one of the many reasons that central. government controlled banking should have been snuffed out early on in the nation's history. Also, allowing the government to get off of the gold standard gave them god-like control over our finances. For instance, if they want to take your money to shoot an Arab, buy someone's viagra, or pay for a bureaucrat's Starbucks they can either tax you directly or just print more money - a method which taxes your savings indirectly.
