Not that blame is relevant. Sure, I'm pissed at all the idiots who
didn't vote (what was more important than the election that will set

The Tenth Crusade--10,000 american kids dead,1,000,000 arabs dead, car
bombs in the US on a regular basis
Damn, I wish I was a gay-hating millionaire babtist. I'd be so happy right now.
Instead, I see the country I love circling the bowl, baby.
The only thing that's going to moderate any of this will be the EU.
They have enormous power over us economically. Maybe, maybe ther
