Thread Name: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
Subject: RE: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
The Old Fart said: If you anti-war Jello Brains had your way we would be speaking Japanese or German right now, Poor as shit and suffering like the North Koreans because we would be under the thumb of a dictator that you anti-war pukes refused to fight.

You don't know how lucky you are to have people willing to fight for your freedom while you call them names.

I haven't been back to this thread for a long time, and I will tell you something. I was doing some silly research for MOAB last week and I did a spontaneous little search for quotes and was surprised to find all of the Scientology stuff about Amos. The difference is, I did some critical thinking while I was reading, and weighed this with the fact that I've been talking to Amos himself for a long time now here at Mudcat. I was able to evaluate what I was reading. The Old Fart doesn't seem to be able or want to do that. I count Amos a friend and am continually astonished by his deep grasp of many subjects. It didn't take long to conclude that the Scientology episode was in the past, and that, as I have always known, for Amos the present as it leads into the future is what is important. The view to the future looks pretty grim right now, with Bush's cadre making war and enriching their corporate friends as fast as they can before they get caught and stopped at the next election. The Old Fart just wants to try to stir up old stuff, out of context, and drag it forward to hamstring someone who has lucid understanding and articulate criticism of Bush and his cronies.

How pathetic. That the Old Fart would pull out the soldiers-fighting-wars-for-you-and-me dogerel when he's clearly decades out of touch with the world. No wonder we're facing global warming, with such gaseous windbags around.
