  2. whassamatter Gus, just ’cause you’re too lazy to go out and work for your country, you have to call those who do hateful and such? BTW, go look in the mirror and say “dhimmy” three times.

    congrats Mlah.

    Shut the phuque up, Yup. At last, have you no shame, sir? (famous quote directed at McCarthy.) I say Mlah is hateful only because of his views as expressed plainly here, especially that basically Islam = Jihad. My employer is state gov’t, so kiss my heinie.

  5. Gus, your employer is a state government? do they know about your penchant for abusing illegal drugs (ala extasy)? hmmm, a slovenly perpetual grad student who does part-time work running a computer lab for the university? or is it more of a case that you are a contractor working on a state-issued project? ooooh. shiver me timbers. somehow, it just doesn’t seem equivalent to putting on a uniform for your country and going out in harm’s way. or even putting on a tuxedo for your country and going out on the canape circuit.

  8. “do they know about your penchant for abusing illegal drugs (ala extasy)?”

    Alas, it’s been years since I’ve found anything along those lines.

    “hmmm, a slovenly perpetual grad student who does part-time work running a computer lab for the university? or is it more of a case that you are a contractor working on a state-issued project? ”

    What makes you think you know shit about my life, ya spaz? I’ve never been “slovenly”, haven’t been a student in years, am employed full-time and permanently by the state in IT (not on campus) and have been for years… jee-zus. Instead of taking the opportunity to argue the merits of my words here, you pull these silly caricaturess out of the black hole of your heart in an effort to discredit my perceptions? The Republican game-plan at work, very classy, indeed…

    “ooooh. shiver me timbers. somehow, it just doesn’t seem equivalent to putting on a uniform for your country and going out in harm’s way.”

    That’s right, I’m a completely different cog in the machine, so what? It has absolutely nothing to do with whether my fear of one day being represented diplomatically by a paranoid idiot like Mlah is valid or not. Get a life, Yup.

  9. Did I strike a nerve, Gus? Feeling a little bit diminished by your life’s work in a safe little cubicle doing network diagrams for middle management? What?

    You don’t like to consider Mlah being at the diplomatic fore of our country’s presence around the world, yet have no trouble with our political leaders like Algore, Howlin’ Howard, and Drunkennedy bloviating about how terrible our country is and how much better the countries who coddle the jihad movement are?

    You adhere to the belief that “Islam is the religion of peace” and there is in no way, shape or form any commandment in the religion for its adherents to wage jihad? Is that about it? You don’t want to hear “foul lies” as spewed forth by Mlah? Can you prove what he says is a lie? You must be thinking, well, gawrsh, there must be a moderate movement in Islam, so Mlah’s just full of shite. Tell me Gus, where are the massive demonstrations by these so-called moderates condemning the killings, bombings, and terrorising being conducted in their name by their fellow travellers? Why is there so much squirming by liberals to justify the “outrage” caused by some lowly Danish cartoonists and not resounding support of FREE SPEECH (which you so dearly hold in your heart)? Why do the Muslim groups howl in outrage when a statesman says they should be held to their allegiance to the country that nurtures them over their allegiance to some imam thousands of miles away (look up recent news from Australia if you’re clue free on that one)? Show me the money, boy, and maybe I’ll start listening to your dhimmi claptrap.

  11. “Did I strike a nerve, Gus?”
    Not. Dream your little dreams of me if it makes you feel better. You wouldn’t know what to make of me in person, anyway.

    “yet have no trouble with our political leaders like Algore, Howlin’ Howard, and Drunkennedy bloviating about how terrible our country is and how much better the countries who coddle the jihad movement are?”
    Oh? What countries are those? Saudi Arabia? Pakistan? UAE? Cuz those are BUSH country!
    On the domestic front, I think their problem is more with this particular administration (for countless good reasons) than our country per se. Just a heads up– listen to them again.

    “commandment in the religion for its adherents to wage jihad?”
    It’s a relative thing, isn’t it? Or else *all* Muslims would be doing it. How many Christians and Jews keep the Sabbath holy? Same difference.

    “where are the massive demonstrations by these so-called moderates”
    Do you really think demonstrations would work? That makes one of us. I believe Nixon referred to them as “The Silent Majority” when all the crazy hippies were grabbing the headlines.

    “Why is there so much squirming by liberals to justify the “outrage” caused by some lowly Danish cartoonists and not resounding support of FREE SPEECH”
    There’s plenty of support for free speech, where are you looking? Who, exactly, is squirming? Not me.

    “Why do the Muslim groups howl in outrage when a statesman says they should be held to their allegiance to the country that nurtures them over their allegiance to some imam thousands of miles away”
    I’m not up on the incident you’re referring to, but it sounds a lot like the relationship of diaspora Jews to Israel.
