So...Let's see. In Jordan they found a truck bomb containing enough bio/chem weapons ( and it was a variety of them all together) to potentially kill 80,000 people. Hmmmm... Then then were able to track the origins of the components of the weapons and guess where they came from...Iraq. The news guy didn't say when they were made, just that they were made in Iraq. ...and for those who ask "how"...they are able to track every weapon made by trace signatures left behind. Signatures unique to the facilities that produced them. Don't kid yourself into thinking they can't.
Also, they found a booby-trapped perfume factory containing the base components of chemical weapons.
Norm...this is for you...You seem to think that we will never find anything in Iraq...We have found stuff and still are...
N E A R B A Y J I, Iraq, April 26 Â Preliminary testing has detected chemical agents in a 55-gallon drum found in northern Iraq near missiles, warheads and suspicious vehicles, ABCNEWS has learned
And as for the precious UN... It would seem that they are not as noble as they are portrayed. Also did you know that they gave Saddam an award for his literacy programs. In fact he provided free education and health care for the people of his country. How did he afford this? He sold us oil when OPEC denied us. We bought obscene amounts of oil from him and this money was used to portray him as a man for the people. I don't think it worked...good thing he kept the beating, torture, and prisons going. They showed an interview with a nuclear engineer from Iraq. He told a story about how he was running the nuclear power plant in Iraq when he was approached by Saddam and ordered to make nuclear weapons. He said no, got tortured, and stuck in solitary for ten years...he was freed after the recent hostilities in Iraq. ..and he wasn't the only one.
Iraq has ties to Al Qaeda?Who could have guessed? I suppose they were training their own people to better serve peanuts on those 707 body's they had.
And again...Iraq signed an armistice and broke it... They have been shooting at amerians for over 10 years. They shoot a missle, we blow the missle site up...over and over. Don't you remember the news stories about it? It wasn't that long ago.

Luis has stumbled upon a most glorious plan for world domination...let me explain...
Brought to you by the makers of "Stupicide" and the founders of fabulously infamous "hideoscopy"...we bring you "Normus Spicy Sauce"
...the name needs work...and the name should be said with a lisp...anyway...
"Normus Spicy Sauce" can be used to juice up any meal. From beef to chicken to cawfish there is no meal that cannot be improved upon with a generous splooging of "Normus Spicy Sauce". And "Normus Spicy Sauce" is not limited to the kitchen. "Normus Spicy Sauce" can be used as a lubricant, a laxative, a wood stain. "Normus Spicy Sauce" can even be used to protect your house from storms, acid rain, and acts of God. "Normus Spicy Sauce" can also be used as a person protection device as well as a pet training tool, a weed killer, insecticide, even as an antibacterial cleaner.
...and in small print...REALLY small print..."Normus Spicy Sauce" should not be taken internally or externally. "Normus Spicy Sauce" should be kept out of the reach of children, intelligent adults, and/or pets. ...no mention of stupid people...
...in even smaller print..."Normus Spicy Sauce" should be, at any time, be allowed to come in contact with any currently or previously living organism. If contact does occur do not consult a doctor. Simply tuck your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye.
Agh...a super hot sauce that does not dilute in water...or bodily fluids...It would be glorious...

If an out of control bus full of nuns being chased by a stampede of elephants, rhinos, and a rollerblading donkey were about to hit one of your best friends and an old, sterile, crack addicted hooker he/she was helping across the street...and you can only save one and get out unscathed...which one?
If you believe that noone is better than another then your answer should be to save neither. ...Another answer would be to save both and then use your super phasing action, granted to you by God as he saw your selfless act, to pass harmlessly through the bus, nuns, elephants, rhinos, and rollerblading donkey...
It's nice to think that everyone is equal and that no more value associated with any one person vs. another...but I don't think that is how the world works...
What do you think?

What makes a person better than someone else? What makes a good person? ...a bad person? ...a grey?
Is it the way they live their life? Is it the stuff they have? Is it the people they associate with? Is it how much they're worth? Is it the little R, D, or I next to their name when they get on TV? What do you think?
Where do you stand based on your answer?
...those who do not answer will make baby jesus cry...and shall be delt with!!!

So...now there's a topic...
Why is there a "grey" area in everything now days? Why is it not good or bad, but great, good, kinda good, ok, satisfactory, unknown, unsatisfying, not so good, kinda bad, bad, horrible, and disturbing? Why do we need so much grey?
Either it's good for you or bad for you using whatever standards you hold...that's my idea of it...Black and white...Good or bad...yes or no...
Think about it...no more need to justify your actions to everyone...no more worries about it it was the right thing to do...no more relaxing of standards to fit in...whay does everything have to be so complicated? I'm confused...and tired...that's probably why I put this up...I go sleep now...
FYI: I don't mean to enforce my will on everyone else(well not in this argument anyway). I mean good or bad for ourselves and to hell with the rest of the world...
I'll be leaving Longview -- permanently leaving -- on Tuesday, April 6. In other words, this will be my last weekend in Longview. At that point, I'll likely set up another LFP writer with administrator access for the site.
Also, someone tell Mike he has access to the blog. I haven't seen him in a while.
