Your Say

There's a dark cloud rising from the desert floor
I packed my bags and I'm heading straight into the storm
Gonna be a twister to blow everything down
That ain't got the faith to stand its ground
Blow away the dreams that tear you apart
Blow away the dreams that break your heart
Blow away the lies that leave you nothing but lost and brokenhearted

I say let the war in Europe begin. We have no standing army strong enough to wage war by ourselves.
We can wait until half the combatants are dead before stepping in. This will have one good point — the socialists will put up or shut up. Oh, and draft the Brownshirts, our homeland army to go over there and fight. That's what all the wannabe warriors yearn for, innit?

With all the shit we have happening here at home, do we really care what happens in some second world country? Maybe Libertarians do, always crowing about the rights of man and common decency, like that'll fix everything, we help these underdogs get a fair shake.

Say what you want about Putin, but he's got the stones to do for his country.

We got what?
It's like being in Caligula's Rome. A half breed faggot of dubious provenance on the throne and toadying grifters running the place. You gotta forgive me, I'm not well ... sometimes I think I've seen too much. I wish Putin had grown up in Boise. – Remus
