I truly wish I was lying. I hope this is just some stage that these people will grow out of. Cause these guys will protest ANYTHING. A Starbucks was closing and they protested that. Saying that Starbucks is a pillar of the community. GO DOWN THE BLOCK AND GO TO THE NEXT ONE! There is a Starbucks everywhere.
Also, there was a story on the news about prisoners in Iraq. (Please forgive me if I have any of this wrong. I have some memory issues) The prison I believe was once an airport. But I am not positive. Anyway, the news was talking about their poor living conditions and how small their living quarters were. It was all true. but what the news did not show was the living conditions of the soldiers at the prison. The US soldiers there were in the same size living spaces, BUT with more people in them. Also if an inmate was sick and a soldier was sick, the doctors had to see the inmate first. Normally the inmate was lying to get an easy day. While the soldier was legitimately ill. From what I remember they ran the story about the poor, poor prisoners on one news station. Then Fox News ran the rest of the story.
I also vaguely recall a false story a network ran about a Marine flushing the Koran. If anyone can remmber either of these in more detail I would greatly appreciate it.
Either way its very clear that you guys/girls seem to have a target on your back. It kinda seems like this generation is the "Its not my fault" generation. People claiming they raped a girl cause their dad hit their mom and other bullshit like that. It seems like our Military have been chosen and the fall guy.
P.S. God Bless Texas :)
Then you didn't spend enough time hanging out on the Commons or early weekend morning in the Bakery - I heard plenty. There's things about Ithaca I miss, but the damned hippies aren't one of them.

I cant help but think of this video right now:
YouTube - Redheads Protest Wendy's
The flushing of the Koran was done by prisoners themselves. They'd rip out the pages and use them to clog the toilets and flood their cells.
Yeah but didnt a new station claim the US soldiers there did it?

You want to derail, post your own thread.

How do you listen to people like the aforementioned protesters without kicking their ass? I mean, damn.
