"Pregnancy is not a disease," McQuade said.

Maybe not, but I'm still going to continue treating it like one I don't want to get.

if the housing bubble collapses, pickup sales disappear. detroit disappears. prop up those subprime loans, federal reserve!

i'm thinking that bush is nothing more than a huge pair of ambulatory testicles. opening up the vietnam war can of worms? ballsy, but fucking retarded. familiarize yourself with the term 'blowback', you sociopathic narcissist. absent our presence in vietnam, the khmer rouge never comes into existence.

you've/we've screwed the pooch. our empire is gone in the worst strategic blunder since hitler invaded russia. there's no way to happy that up.

I think we should let Americans buy any car or truck they want.

But if it gets less than 40 mpg, they should pay a stupidity tax each year on their license renewal. We can use that money to fix the bridges. Figure double the basic tax.
