If we are indeed on the cusp of WW3, how are you preparing?

    I'm heading to Owen Sound and crash with Double J.

    Hell, people from Toronto don't know where it is. Don't have to worry about no Islamic terrorists.

    One could argue that's the best role Paxton's ever played

    I was agree. Better than his role as Chet in Weird Science or the firefighter in that other movie starring the rappers. Forget the name now.

    Are you sure?

    I didn't see any fruit rollups in any of those pictures.

    Technically, this is World War IV.

    World War III essentially ended when the Berlin Wall was torn down ... and, as with Germany after WWI, left certain unresolved factional disputes that have led us to our current predicament.

    Well, he did mention the gun first, which tells me where his head is.

    And even if he doesn't have a gun, he's still panicking like a little bitch. I should add that though A_F and I have had board disagreements, I don't hate him, I hate the hit-the-panic-button paranoia he's spewing. It's counterproductive, silly, dangerous, and most important, EXACTLY HOW TERRORISTS WANT YOU TO FEEL.

    This is what I hate about the America we live in right now -- tough talk about how the rest of the world should run their lives, get threatened by the lunatic fringe that really doesn't represent the majority of anti-American opinion, go into uber-paranoia mode.

    It's a stupid-ass vicious cycle.

    Al-Qaeda cannot, I repeat, cannot bring WWIII to our shores. Nor can Iran, Syria, North Korea, or any other nations viewed as overtly hostile. The damage those nations can inflict on us pales in comparison to the damage we can inflict on them, so for people to hit the panic button about a third-rate attempt at an airline hijacking and extrapolate it into WWIII is pathetic. I'd worry if this were China or Russia, but this ain't the Cuban Missile Crisis folks.

    I hear a lot of conservatives talk about this ridiculous notion of the "pussification of America". It's times like this where the paranoia crew -- and many are righties -- show who the real pansies are -- the shoot first, ask questions later kind of pansies -- who refuse to live their lives without fear.

    I don't fear a goddamn thing about Al-Qaeda, and I live within horrible death range of the biggest chemical weapons depot in the nation. I refuse to give in to the notion that those assholes can fuck with the things I can control in the way I live my life. If more Americans felt the same, we'd be in a helluva lot better mindset than we are.

    An example? I don't admire the policies of the Israeli government, but I admire the hell out of the Israeli people, who live with this shit perpetually. Their ability to live relatively normally under fire is an example of what we should follow instead of flipping the chicken switch everytime someone threatens to kill us.

    I refuse to let Al-Qaeda win even one inch of doubt in my mind about the way I live my life. I will fly, I will visit large cities, I will visit would-be terrorists targets, I will rock with my cock out if the spirit moves me. What I won't do is panic like a little bitch because Al-Qaeda threatened us.

    To me, that's a helluva lot more American than flashing our piece Swingers-style to the world. Live your lives. Walk the fucking walk.

    Rant over.

    I think the key for the Israelis is that they are well-supplied with fruit rollups.
