This is what hurts my brain a little bit.
For years and years and years, a chorus of voices was raised against George W. Bush's so-called "War on Terror." It's a fraud, a scam, a way to push the wars, a way to screw our rights, a way to make money, etc. Here on DU, one could not swing one's dead cat by the tail without striking a thread making this argument, filled with many people agreeing vehemently.
In the last several days, with all the NSA revelations, a lot of those same voices from all those years have defended the NSA and the whole operation by claiming, in essence, "The NSA needs to do this for the 'War on Terror.'" Not just on DU, mind you, but everywhere.
So I guess the "War on Terror" is all legit and stuff now.
Strange days indeed.
Most peculiar, momma.
Hoo.May the FORCE be with you!

A Simple Game (4,905 posts) 21. The thing about this war on terror that gets me is
if you take away one catastrophic incident on 9/11 and the two wars that followed it, all you have for terrorism amounts to a pimple on an elephants butt.
We would have been better off just ignoring what happened on 9/11, much better off. I firmly believe we caused more terrorism after the 9/11 incident than all of other the terrorists combined. Afghanistan and Iraq did nothing to us, nothing at all.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

So on top of everything else, some ass just smashed my face with a brick
Yep. Just got back from the Kerry rally in Copley. Spent nearly eight hours standing in the cold rain and waind waiting for the word...and then the word came, and didn't come, and is hovering like doom...
So I am walking in the back door of my apartment building, and I hear someone behind me. I turn, and this douchebag threw a brick at my head. It mostly hit my shoulder, but bashed into my jaw. Pretty clearly a mugging attempt; the person who did it was young. Nothing is broken, I don't think. I can still work my jaw, and my shoulder is moving OK, and no teeth are loose. I have a big scratch on my face, and everything hurts like hell.
So, the moral of the story: No matter how bad you feel, no matter how crappy was your night, nobody threw a brick at your head.
