    I hope your mutual funds in the military industry are doing well, that your groovy
    Afghan hachís gets you yummy high, and that overall you enjoy your lifestyle...
    because many of your daily joys are built at the price of these kids' lives.

    Have a nice day.

    ...

    P.S. Oh yeah, and enjoy those expensive Xmas presents, and the company of
    your loved ones, and the delicious eggnog... knowing these kids have none of that.

    Oh, sorry, I didn't notice that they were
    carrying their Muslim ID in their right hands.

    90% of what we currently celebrate as "Christmas" has nothing to do with Christianity. It's a hodgepodge of various pagan winter festivals, the Jewish Channukah observance, Kwanzaa, the Cult of Santa Claus, the Cult of Scrooge, the New Year festival, the Celebration of Childhood, the Great $$$ Ceremony of Gift-giving, and the Season of Boring Bowl Games -- all wrapped into one big super-holiday.

    If Muslims want to get in on the holiday fun, I'm sure there's plenty of room for them.

    well - you did say, in so many words, "Do They Know It's Christmas Time at All?"

    a song we will all be soon hearing a few dozen times between now and Christmas.

    But the inhabitants of these territories (once statehood was achieved) would all probably vote for democrats, so the conservatives would be quick to oppose any such plan.

    So, seitse, please post the names of humanitarian efforts you have contributed to to help these poor kids. Then, tell us how much of your salary or welfare check you have sent in, complete with photocopies of the receipts of course.

    Your haughty but limp insults aside, have you got any response on the 'market capitalism & Vietnam' questions that were raised on the other thread similar? Or any answers - other than your stock 'personal abuse answers' - to any of the other questions like the ones raised by KN and Cerbus and others for instance?
