"In a delayed reaction report from the "Did He Really Say That?" Department, the Huffington Post has unearthed a June 17 C-SPAN clip of Joe Biden chatting with an Indian-American man about the support he's received from other Indian-Americans. "In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans, moving from Indian," Biden says. "You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking!""(D-MNBA)
""Living conditions (in Iraq) have gotten so much worse, violence is at an even higher tempo, and the country is on the verge of civil war. The administration has been successful to the extent that most Americans are not aware of just how dire it is and how little progress has been made. They keep talking about how the Iraqi army is doing much better and taking over responsibilities, but for the most part that's not true.""* btw - given that troll-hunting is fun, and we've had a recent episode - here's a flashback (from one of my fave email correspondents: email@example.com):
BTW, are you a leftist of some sort or a Conservative of some sort. From your site I couldn't tell, and that is badi suckered him along for a bit (i've lost the actual exchange) but eventually he saw through me:
The sharing of the same mood is a pretty good social solvent and coordinate but not always easy to accomplish.
the Reds took over Hollywood in and around WW II, and are substantially still camped out there.
I see Red China, a brutal dictatorship, winning and Australia losing as things move along... Could we have a conversation about these and other things with an eye to being more effective at what we are doing."
"Subject: Your Fucked Mindi should reach out to him again to see how he's going.
In my opinion you are nuts. It is none of your damned business what our volunteer professional soldiers are doing in Iraq. It is their lives you are pissing all over. They are giving their lives for something THEY believe in, while you shit on their graves. Fuck off. You want my opinion, that is it.
Wake up and get some intelligence, morals and ethics, if possible. If you want to change your stupid ways and thoughts I will try to help you. Other than that forget you know me.
"We are in a war to protect your butt, and to protect Australia which I assume you give a damn about. Freedom isn't free. It has to be paid for in blood. You seem an air head that can play intellectual games with people's lives.
Our soldiers are every one volunteers and professional. And no one has any
right to mess with them. They don't want your blessing, or your sympathies,
or your wishing they were home.
They have a job to do, and you are in the way and damaging to their morale.
That is why your morals and ethics are no good. If you want to suck up to
the commies and liberals that are enemies to both Australia and America then
suck up to them and stop trying to pretend you are doing anything else.
It is your phoniness that is most annoying. Get on one side or another and stay there.
That is what to make of all this.
If you were intelligent you wouldn't be dinging our war effort. People who talk like you in time of war were shot in times past.""
