morning fiendss
i aint gonna blog bout iraq today
big sigh of relief
what would i know
youre right
im just an olde dope smoking hippy
not prepared to do anything
cowardly lazy peacenik
i mean imagine if it was world war 1
and my type had ruined that little picnic
imagine if we hadnt stopped them dominoes tumbling
in vietnam
imagine if all the pot smoking cowardly olde idiots
like me
had ruined the boer war
the crimean war
the hundred years war
the punic wars
cmon
imagine all them pot smoking peaceloving pacifist fools
those ignorant cowardly hippies like me
filling up history with….
gulp…
peace!!??
d’ya see fiendss
theres always a reason to go n fight someone somewhere
some reason why a loada women n children gotta die
just ask genghis or attila
or lord kitchener (whats a few men?)
imagine if all the countries on this earth turned
neutral?
like sweden
or switzerland
where would we be then?
cmon
the badde guys would run amok
i mean
the first world war….
we hadda fight that didnt we
my grandfathers hadda get mustard gassed didnt they
to stop the hun?
there was goode reason for it wasnt there?
for our glorious dead?
to get back that bit of land in alsace-lorraine or wherever
johnny got his gun?
the trenches?
the cannons?
gallipoli?
where would this world be now
if we hadnt had that “great” war?
you see im a good for nothing
stupid muso (who smokes pot)
i cant understand why people have to die
with land mines
and smarte bombs
and napalm
and bayonettes
whats wrong with me?
when will i learn?
gotta fight fire with fire
if theyve got fire
we have to get a bigger fire
if they take an eye n a tooth
we should take a hundred eyes n teeth
why cant i be brave n resolute
like messrs anonymous
now those guys are doing something
theyre prepared
i mean..
well…
it aint actually them doing it themselves…
well of course not
thatd be kinda dangerous….
wouldnt it?
i mean you could get hurt that way…couldnt you?
but you know
someones (other than them)
gotta do it
i mean imagine if all the soldiers in this world
on every side
chucked down their lovely guns
and started playing music and smoking pot
and we used all that “defence” money
to , you know, help people
or educate em or build swimming pools n libraries
jesus…what chaos
so i find myself truly chastised by messrs anonymous
(if theyre so brave..howcome they dont put their names
i stupidly wonder…?)
i’ll stick to what i know
i will be happy that my country of australia n england
followed a nonelected draft dodging ex alky coke dealing
death penalty advocating nepotistic man
of very little charm, intelligence or grace
into a little skirmish
to get those weapons of mass destruction
even tho we the people were not consulted
i trust em
well we had to stop mr hitler didnt we?
so just in case mr hussein was another hitler
we had to stop him, didnt we?
and if a few children have to die
well thats just the price you pay, isnt it?
(as long as it isnt my kids, cos theyre white n christians
and i kinda like them)
but theyll thank us for it eventually, wont they?
mr bush wouldnt get us involved in some outrageous
invasion of someone elses country for no reason
would he?
we must trust our leaders
thats what they do…lead….?!
youd be crazy to listen to
an olde cowardly pot smoking idiot like me
an idiot who marched against vietnam in the 60s n 70s
lucky it took us a while to stop that one
them dirty commies
wed all be speaking friggin vietnamese now, wouldnt we?
i should keep my head down
talk about what i know
which aint that much
leave war to the experts like mr bush
he knows what hes doing, doesnt he?
i mean hes got mr cheney, and that lovely miss rice
and mr rumsfield
and
(gee i wish lbj was still around)
cmon
those people gotta a handle on things
havent they?
c’mon
some wars are ok….arent they?
we gonna get them bloody terrorists aint we
we gonna torture them torturers aint we
we gonna make the world safe, aint we
i mean ok
we got a few nukes up our sleeves
but we’re the good guys, aint we
i mean
we speak english and are christians, aint we?
we wouldnt go around the world imposing our schtick
on other places willy nilly, would we?
and ya know what
i think god is on our side..
i think he wanted mr bush elected
to sort out all them villains
and any one whos saying”uhh, hold on a minute”
well theyre just uninformed traitorous seditous imbeciles
who aint got the stomach for the good fight
thats what all the bombs n mines are for..
gods own work
ok
im gonna keep silent from now on
gee
thanks messrs anon.
ya put me straight
im suitably chastised
now will you fuck off
while i dribble on about music n marijuana
and my memories
anyway
i guess those guys have enlisted by now
and on their way to the middle east
to stop evil
to save freedom
kick those bad guys arses
eat mcdonalds in baghdad
(and maybe if theres a little oil there too
well,
its an ill war that blows nobody up good…)
halliburton got some restructuring to do…
hurrah
hurrah
we have won a glorious victory
against the axes of eevil

anyway
i smoked a big fat joint yessaday
and wassa strummin mah guitar when….

oooops outta time
love
from
the cowardly custard

    Anyway…have younoticed Steve how used people have become to all these supposed ‘hits’ that use anothersong’s music. SO many songs now that it’s apparently ‘cool’, but noway.
    Although the owners of the original song probably rakeit in, from a creativesense it’s just a blatantripoff. All you need is to find a song that no-one else has done itto and make up a new melody- oh with a rap-etc. feel, ofcourse.

    Hearing that newone with ‘Tainted Love’ splashed all over it just makes mecringe (eventhough I hate the original song anyway!), and the Rouge Rip-off Merchants- My Sharona? Not theirs atall! Give me abreak!

    Hey Sk,

    I’m totally against the invasion of Iraq by the USA….what’s the deal with contravening international law! What sort of precedent did they hope to edify — big dog eat little dog then bites own bum? Will we see GWB in the dock at the Hague 10 years from now???

    However, IMHO I do believe we need an international “peace keeping force”. I don’t think sides should be taken in any conflict but people trapped in war zones should be offered protection. And you can’t protect people from a tank with an olive branch. Perhaps the military should have an R & D division devoted to creating non-toxic non-lethal military devices…i.e. instead of mines they can trap soldiers & tanks in trenches filled with dung!!

    Anyways, what I’m trying to say is that I believe International law needs an enforcement arm until all humanity become enlightened pacifists (don’t say I’m a dreamer!)…The international community can’t turn a blind eye to atrocities like Rwanda.

    Anyways…that’s what I think…

    Peace & Love
    B

    PS

    Not a fan of REM…actually, don’t know any of their songs (except for ‘Shiny happy people’ and that’s because my neighbours played it ad nauseum) but, I do admit to digging U2 & Bono…and the comparison between the Church and U2 seems an entirely natural one to me…spiritually speaking, I’m completely “at home” whether listening to the Church or U2. As far as I’m concerned, both bands are intensely mystical (except for U2’s “Zoo” phase which completely lost me!) and concerned with metaphysics…as for the comparison of you to Bono…well I can see that too…ya both appear to be decent human beings with shitloads of talent and refreshing deep honest self-effacing humanity coupled with a quirky dignity & nobility of spirit (hope I ain’t sounding like I wanna give you a kidney).

    Funny thing. I never saw anyone argueing for the death of children, arguing the merits of all wars you mentioned.

    A question was posed to you as to whether (even in the case of Hitler) it was always wrong to fight, even if the world would be dominated by evil because of your pacifism?

    You didn’t answer that, but you did then misframe the question and statements with it and then you avoided the question entirely while spouting all of the same stuff I was saying when I was 17.

    If we’d all refuse to fight other nations it’d be great – I’d support that. If money grew on trees it’d be great. If sickness didn’t exist it’d be great. If criminals wouldn’t hurt others it’d be great. If old pot smoking hippies didn’t dishonestly put words into my mouth that weren’t said, it’d be great. But none of that is reality.

    It’s a nice dream and one that many of us share. But ‘you can’t keep back the killers with love man’.

    It’s your blog of course. I just wish if you were going to bring these kinds of things up and then insult some of your readers over it, you’d at least have the honesty to frame the discussion/debate/statements honestly, instead of twisting comments your fans made and pretending it’s about something else.

    Well said, buddy. Esp. about the war mongers not having to get their own hands dirty or risk their own flesh and blood – oh, wouldn’t it be lovely if Jenna or Barbara joined the marines just to piss off Daddy?

    Yeah, a bunch of us pot smoking pacifist hippies tried to stop the Vietnam war way back when. And although we didn’t cause it to come to a screaming halt, I believe we helped turn the tide and helped bring that horrlble “little” war to an end.

    btw I believe there is a way you can bar anonymous comments, if you would choose to do that.

    The majority of the MTV eating youngsters don’t really care about the war because it doesn’t affect them, or so they think. If the draft were reinstated, you’d see an increase in anti-war sentiment from that demographic, and this is why the dubya admin won’t do it.

    Funny how this whole labyrinth of shite goes back to 16 years ago when the US chose to stop Hussein from taking control of an Oil-Bearing Nation (OBN).
    Funny how the US did that instead of wasting time stopping the silly people in Yugoslavia from committing genocide.
    Funny how there are so few times when war is better than sitting still, and the US had an opportunity to do the good thing, and still chose oil over people.
    Funny how Bush et al keep saying God Bless America…I just haven’t figured out which god they’re talkin about…
    Pluto?
    Midas?
    Cthulhu?
    I mean, it’s always more important to feed the greed-beast than to act like a friggin human being and help someone out, isn’t it?
    Hell, offer anyone enough money, and they’d hand over little Susie wouldn’t they?

    I’m the funny sort, I guess. I always considered questioning the judgement of those in power to be my most patriotic duty. Afterall, I never want to look a soldier in the eye after he/she has been wounded and say, “I just assumed you were being sent into the line of fire for a good reason.”

    I support soldiers, I have students I taught _To Kill a Mockingbird_ now carrying guns over there and as I support them, I’m gonna scream loud and long to make sure that they are there for a reason, not just to make someone money or settle a family debt.

    When you’re told not to question, it’s usually because someone doesn’t want you to know the answer.

    When it comes to REM I remember hearing “Talk about The Passion” on the radio & buying it the same day. Then I saw them on TV & Mikey S was wearing his paisley shirt -then the camera panned down & he had….trainers on!! I sold the record next day. Guess that makes me shallow. It was still the correct decision. No excuse for it.

    SK,

    I agree with you that after the first baby gets hurt it is all pointless.

    What drives me fucking crazy is why people aren’t screaming about what is going on in Darfour. Iraq is a horrible situation and the US and its allies have made it much worse. They all need to be forced to sit and listen to ‘Unearthed’ with incense burning and some Indian dude chanting softly in a lightless room.

    But why don’t we hear about Darfour? Fuck man…a million people being burned to death, raped, and wiped out like someone stepping on an ant hill? Who are these fucking people? And how can we be of the same making? I’m with you…pass the joint.

    the smoke clouds somehow outline the here and now
    Humanity and its quest for greatness and progress
    has forgotten to listen to itself
    the underlying message
    tis not empty pacifism..
    cuz on the other side of that current of energy is the Ultimate peace,
    one that should be open and upheld by everyone,
    its easier to let the horses go into the abyss
    but the master in his mind controls the universe
    and holds everything in peace

    Freedom without Love is Dangerous…
    can freedom exist with peace ???????..
    ??????????????????????????????????
    I say yes, but I see the world and renounce its rotting shell, realizing it better to behold the flower..
    and thats easier said than done, but it is to be done..om tat sat om.

    War N Peace
    While I can conceptualize both perspectives somewhat without having to suffer through any war, God bless
    and while I can understand that pain and suffering are integral in experience
    War is not,
    its a denial of the sacred faculty of Reason which brings on ignorance and fear
    working in direct Opposition of the faculty allows us to concieve enlightenment
    and realize that our nature is creative and formative..
    The truth is that war cant be stopped
    until there is a Universal Realization of Oneness
    ya think were all dreamers living outside of the horror
    no friend we’re not,
    I am ultimately worried about people that think its
    necessary to kill someone for no real reason other than ignorance due to lack of compassion and diplomacy
    Waking up in a world in which yu gotta kill to live is horribly wrong..

    The real problem comes when people have reasoned their ignorance into truth
    and truth as a necessary evil, which they hold to be truth for everybody
    so geometrically when ignorance=truth & truth=evil
    it is then interchangeable
    then you are forced into sustaining the Death equation
    which = devastation for humanity,
    and I mean yu and yu and yu..

    We feel frustrated cause humanity has brought forth great ideas, amazing concepts and beautiful sentiments
    and I feel they are spiritually at odds with these horrific wars and their mentalities.
    all the higher elements such as love, peace, compassion, music
    they come from a place that admires life as well as death, accepting the Lord and all its incarnations
    Conflict is unnavoidable, but lack of conscience is a Godless place..
    I guess the one great thing that comes out Negativity is greater ideas of understanding
    unfortunately, War ultimately inspires Peace right..

    So just so you know, we all love what we love
    dont be afraid to love more, beyond your mind, love everything and it will reveal itself
    jus know that the more excesses and distractions one riddles the soul with
    the harder it is to discriminate between Childlike love achieved thru material attachment
    and sincere Love that understands and learns Divine detachment..
    Realizing that ultimately we all want to love the same thing
    we just have to realize it..
    we are all the same, we are all ONE..
    thats what we want, its with us all the way…
    thats what yu can pray to..
    pray on the suffering today people..
    pray towards bliss…

    its so easy to laugh
    its so easy to hate
    it takes strength to be gentle and kind
    tis so easy to laugh
    tis so easy to hate

    “But why don’t we hear about Darfour? Fuck man…a million people being burned to death, raped, and wiped out like someone stepping on an ant hill?”

    Beause Colin Powell took the issue to the UN, and the UN refused to move on it. The US’ resources are tied up currently on two fronts and while they can help they can’t do it entirely themselves.

    Predictably, the UN refused to recognise Darfur as the problem it is and do any military intervention to stop the slaughter. Kofi Anan would HAVE to deal with it militarily if he admitted what was happening, so instead he refused to admit that it was genocide and called it ‘unrest’ instead. The UN doesn’t have to intervene for ‘unrest’.

    Why am I unsuprised to see that last comment from “anon”……………why are US forces tied up on two fronts?……….why am I so exhausted and angry about all of this?…..why do anons still talk about MILITARY solutions?…why “anon” are you still reading this blog on a daily basis & commenting?
    Military solution? US resources tied up on two fronts? Achieving what exactly?
    It’s pitiful. I despise the fact that we have one unfettered “superpower”. In an ideal world we’d have none (bring it on), sadly we’re stuck with Bush and whatever sickness courses through the veins of his support.
    And saddest of all it’s done in the name of Jesus…how sick is that?

    “why are US forces tied up on two fronts?……….why am I so exhausted and angry about all of this?…..why do anons still talk about MILITARY solutions”

    You never have answers, just criticisms.

    So the US is bad and tied up on 2 fronts – bad US, BAD! More to the point since you don’t like unilateral action – why isn’t the UN doing anything? What’s your answer about what the UN should do for Darfur?

    You don’t have one. Neither does SK and besides you don’t believe in force. If you were in charge, the slaughter would still continue.

    Which leads us to the fact that you criticize all military solutions. WHAT IS YOUR ALTERNATIVE that will effectively stop the slaughter?

    Again, you guys never have answers – just criticism of others or attacks for the person that presents the question.

    You CAN NOT give an answer that doesn’t involve 1) criticising me for asking, 2) criticising the US, or 3) ignoring those two questions or changing the subject. Every time such a discussion comes up, one of those three things happens.

    And lastly – none of “it” is being done in the name of Jesus, so why use this to bash Christians? Just bigotry on your part, pure and simple. Even as an athiest this makes me sick.

    Why ‘anonymous’? Because I know many other Church fans in real life and like to maintain good relations with them. I know other fans who think like I do, but we are not safe revealing our thoughts because you guys attack and name call rather than discuss and tolerate. So we keep quiet, or if we do speak we do so without a name attached so that you don’t carry over the animosity to other Church related things and snub us then.

    hey anon, I admit I don’t have a solution, but my criticism is valid. As a US citizen (and a Church fan) I feel that it is valid to say:

    since WWII (and probably before) the US has been instrumental in the development and distribution of arms around the world, to every tin pot dictatorship that would promote US business interests. The problem is not the US per se, but it’s activities abroad (and at home).

    The solution (non military) is to stop being the biggest distributor of weapons and money for military control (such as our pathetic drug war). This IS a global society and the actions of the US government rarely work for the benefit of the people of the world, much less the people of the United States.

    Incidentally, I’d like to take a moment to Aaron Russo’s excellent forthcoming film America From Freedom to Fascism, and suggest that every American watch this film when (hopefully) it is released nationally.

    I retort with:

    Patriotism is proud of a country’s virtues and eager to correct its deficiencies; it also acknowledges the legitimate patriotism of other countries, with their own specific virtues. The pride of nationalism, however, trumpets its country’s virtues and denies its deficiencies, while it is contemptuous toward the virtues of other countries. It wants to be, and proclaims itself to be, “the greatest,” but greatness is not required of a country; only goodness is.”

    “…you people that criticize the US NEVER EVER EVER have a workable plan as an alternative”

    The answer IMO is for the Iraqi people to be allowed to establish a coheasive structure that addresses their needs for themselves by themselves. The best way to have achieved that was to support them when they were down under Saddam.

    Instead we attacked them too and removed medical aid to their weakest and most vulnerable citizens.

    The answer now lies I feel in admitting our mistakes and changing the way we are as a people.

    1. Let’s stem the oil addiction that got us into this difficulty in the first place.

    2. Perhaps they would be more comfortable with soldiers from Muslim countries patrolling until they can re-establish fully the army and police force we disbanded three years ago. This would also allow our troops a well deserved rest from what is a political catastrophe, not a military one.

    3. Let’s apologise to the Iraqi people and give them the support from the outside to either establish one country, or to divide into sectors or regions that can govern themselves. Perhaps without our military presence we could help re-establish running water, electricity and security more efficiently.

    4. Can we promise to stop invading sovereign nations just because we feel the urge. Forced help usually isn’t help.

    5. Let’s try to remember the world is here and now. Life is life but death is death. Let’s walk on the bright side of the road for a while.

    The problem actually is “you people” who only see domination, exploitation and aggression as the only solution to all of the worlds problems.

    Anonymous,
    This is Steve Kilbey’s blog but I am going to just hijack it for one moment while I say, with all the peace and love in my hippie hear: You’re a prick. Now you just want to antagonize people.
    Amen and thanks and bravo to Brian (altres) for addressing the problem of Iraq, which what Steve was initially writing about. He suggested some solutions and instead of having the maturity to at least acknowledge that, you skirt the issue and tell us he addressed the wrong war. We can’t win.

    Here’s my solution to Darfur, which would’ve been my solution to Iraq, quoted by the UN peace-keeping chief Jean-Marie Guehenno:

    “The United Nations never imposes itself on any country,” UN peacekeeping chief Jean-Marie Guehenno told reporters after the joint team met Foreign Minister Lam Akol. All our peacekeeping operations in Africa are deployed with the co-operation of the host country.”

    Today the African country and the UN are trying to get UN peacekeepers in the country…it’s a start. No one says they have all the solutions. DO YOU? I admit, I don’t have them all. But…I never would’ve invaded Iraq to begin with. And I do have some thoughts on solutions – maybe they wouldn’t work, but who knows? When you show your face and your name on this site, I’ll talk with you respectfully, off this site. You know where I am.

    Steve – all apologies for this. I know where your heart is and it is good. I know you are human and you don’t have every answer either but I know you need to keep singing, writing, painting, (esp. painting!!!! have you guys checked out steve’s art??? GO NOW!!!) because you provide us with hope, and happiness and beauty and stuff to think about and ponder.

    walked away from the puter for a bit to spend time with the family…wow…
    First thing, I’m gonna toss this out and leave it. I don’t wanna turn our beloved sk’s blog comments into a quagmire more suited to a FOXNEWS radio show.If any further commentary/discussion is desired, feel free to email me through my own inconsequential little blog.

    Now…wow…just…wow. I haven’t been lumped in with “you people” in so long I’d almost forgotten what it was like to be painted with a broad brush.

    As far as “criticizing the US instead of viocing a solution”, all I attempted to do was make the point that despite the fact that you seemed to be voicing questions that did indeed warrant answers, the tone of the post along with the words chosen struck me as those oft chosen by those that tend to resort to flag-waving and labelling people of dissenting opinions as “un-American” and the like. The tone and words chosen, to be blunt, pissed me off. Thus I chose to respond with a quote instead of instigating a flamewar.

    As far as Darfur goes…while I have sever issues with most acts of aggression, I may differ from some brother/sister Church-fans (my wife included), by holding the view that there are times when it is the “right thing to do.”

    Unfortunately, like most things, “good wars” are a lot like Communism…they look real good on paper…

    As a student of military history, and not some armchair critic, I am well aware that there are times when (after ALL other paths of recourse are exhausted) military force is the only remaining option, but the US (my own much-beloved nation) has shown a tendencey under the current administration to give half-hearted attempts before rolling out the tanks.

    Our own justice system doesn’t even allow for the excuse for violence as “He’s dangerous and he looked like he was gonna swing.” Any judge worth his salt would laugh it out of court.

    Darfur? It’s a mess, and something needs to be done about it, and yesterday. I will be quite honest with you, and say that while I have no alternative solutions, I will not be ablew to support any military action anywhere until I see other, real, attempts made to resolve the situation.

    Going in with guns blazing to save the day makes you a hero. Going in with guns blazing just because you don’t want to try working something else out makes you an asshole.

    As previously mentioned, I’m open for continued debate on the topic if you, or anyone, wants to email me…easily done through my profile…but I won’t clog sk’s space with this any more.

    it is impossible to have a rational discussion about something as irrational as using weapons in any form for any reason

    history shows it never works

    don’t think so much
    there are a ways

    and it is nice to think of peace and beauty in the world and at the same time practical support eg food, shelter and a sense of hope

    everyone needs this – it is not a debate of intellect – it is the basic need of all souls to have hope

    stop arguing do something like support UNICEF – positive actions to create a change – think about where we make purchases – recycle – the lists goes on –

    I for one am sick of seeing children dying and in distress in any country in the world for any reason – so I try to do something

For that baby that died, save another one’s life. Make some kids life happy. We’re so busy arguing and whingeing.

    Forgo that extra glass of beer or expensive magazine, that $3 or $7 (it costs fucking $7 for magazines these days, can you believe that?! – who needs ’em!) or whatever could actually educate someone.

And Sue and Anon are SOOOO right – if we sponsor one child or educate one person to teach a village, we’ve done something better than all this pointless bickering.
    For Christmas ask my friends to buy trees from Oxfam, or feed children for a month – it’s not that expensive!

    I am however, unable to stop spending when it comes to Church merch. 😉 I also apologize for name-calling; that’s immature – I just get so angry and worked up. Sincere apologies. Why don’t we dare ourselves to really do something? What could Church fans do TOGETHER to make the world a better place (besides attending as many Church shows as possible of course), if for just one child, one family? How about ideas on that??

    I’ll bet it’s easier to decide what we CAN do to better the world than to stop the insanity that’s started and basically out of our hands at the Iraq level.

    My first dare: Who is with Sue C and Anon and myself and who will take us seriously on this? Who will take the love and peace I know is inside all of us and put it to good use? Feel free to email me with ideas…and alas, Steve. I picture you hiding your computer under the bed, not coming out til this stops. Actually I hope you’re just enjoying some down time.

    I don’t know why it didn’t go on the blog but it was me aaa who asked for people to donate to eg UNICEF or something positive

    I guess thats still sort of anon but for some reason when I first read this site I put aaa ….

    Some friends and I have been talking about a Healing Day but do it on a regular basis…. I know there a lots of different days for different reasons – I just get tired sometimes and I thought it was a good way to get back some positive energy ….and it can be done anywhere and does not cost a cent – just some time and postitive thought….

    I like the idea of thinking of the earth as our Mother and how we should treat it ……..

    Well hope that makes sense …

    PS I think events like Musicfest are also a good idea …………

    the 42.45% of americans who voted apparently sent george dubya bush over the line last time when he received 2.5% more votes than kerry. it’s a great pity all you americans out there don’t vote – if you had, maybe US troops wouldn’t be in iraq making such a bloody mess of it, followed by the australians etc. it’s vietnam all over, except even worse. there were no weapons of mass destruction. it had nothing to do with 9/11. saddam was one bad dude, but the problem was internal. there is no axis of evil. that kind of racism, one that points to a map and uses that terminology, that’s evil. you can’t fight a war on terror. war causes terror. it’s like trying to kill a virus with a handgun. john wayne can’t do it. only love can stop terror, love and patience, listening, communication and common sense. but that’s in short supply in the oval office and in kirribilli house these days.

    come back kilbey, we miss yer thunderclouds and yer lovely rainbow of words.

    first strike

    how can there be a war on terror?
    you might as well invade fear
    if you could annexe horror,
    then you could rape disgust
    if you could take bewilderment by coup,
    you could surrender to agony
    you could occupy disfigurement
    you could annihilate common sense

    Brad –
    ..to quote a drunk redneck for levity, “arguing on thuh inter-net is like bein’ in the special uh-limpics, you might win, but yr still a retard.” et al

    c’mon man – are you for real? that’s the most insensitive thing i’ve read on this blog. you can be a better man that that.
