Chuck. Can I borrow your brain and edgyoukashun? I'll give it back I promise.
You could be more obnoxious though, I've only seen you give crap to W.Rabbit and MaartenSFS. Remember where you are.

I feel like I should get a grade after sitting through Chuck's long, stuffy lectures.

I found this lack of knowledge particularly striking in the early days of the Iraq war. I realize that many here were actually minors or children ten years ago, and many grew up with the US at multiple wars. In the early days there were many supporters of the war and they mostly were misiformed (the Fox news viewers believing in Saddam's ties to Al Qida, WMD etc) or uniformed, simply ignorant of history and current events. But they had "gut" reactions..."Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez

One of my mentors was manning a political table once at Utah State back in the 80s when Reagan was busy selling arms to Iran, importing coke, and slaughtering peasants in Central America. A young Mormon man started arguing about stopping the commies and my mentor said, "Well that's one thing, but what I'm concerned with is the benefits and health for children." The conversation changed because they now had common ground of caring.
When looked at this way it is easy to consider a corporation such as United Fruit evil. You don't have to justify their evil by their complicity in the assassination of Arbenz, one can just consider malnutrition and infant mortality that results from wholesale appropriation of farm lands by corporations.

Now that I've read all of Chuck's posts I wish I could steal his brain and I should rewrite or delete some of the above. Your reply to Mike is better than mine. Jesus Chuck, could you STOP making sense. We need more name calling and emotions around here!!!!!!!!!!!!"Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez
