Isn't it funny how real wisdom can be distilled down to so few words? No sessions with the shrink, no need for a shelf of self-help books, just a good old-fashioned, succinct, shoprt and sweet sound bite delivered with perfect timing.

great comparison of the two wars. You left out the lies that got us into this one. Or did you find the WMD's and Al Qaeda while you were over there?

don: I knew it was only a matter of time before your jason-clone self would weasle back in here.

I'm not about to rehash the whole WMDs and al Qaeda "lie" business. You "know" they were lies. This, despite the reliance on bad intel (WMDs) and an outright falsehood (no connections to al Qaeda). Geez, do you find no solace that a con hater like me is against the war? No -- I have to agree with your reasons for being against it! Man, if we only had listened to the UN! (What, were they too busy getting ready to send peacekeepers to Darfur? Oops, never mind.)

Of course, there was a thing called the Gulf of Tonkin incident back during 'Nam....

You and the Hilfiger-liberal crowd constantly attempt to think up the next big "revolutionary gear" that'll motivate people

Hube, I agree with much of what you write here. But you're dead wrong that there aren't massive things to protest and fight like hell against for the current generation. Folks are simply picking the wrong ones. There is a revolution to be had, but it's a different kind of revolution.

There should be protests in the streets demanding that BOTH parties stop bending over for corporate interests, particularly the oil industry, and start representing the people. Americans should be protesting absurd Executive salaries from the same companies that tell Congress that increasing gas mileage on cars is just too darn expensive. People should be shouting from the rooftops that it's been proven time and time again that happy, insured, reasonably compensated workers are more productive and make more money for their bosses. They ought to be screaming bloody murder about the uninsured, deficit spending, lack of government accountability, voting machines that can be hacked into, and -- yes, sorry -- the environment. I'm among those wacky leftists who wants cleaner air and water, and for companies to go about their perfectly lovely capitalist affairs with a sense of social and environmental responsibility -- as some VERY profitable companies already do.

It's time to stop thinking about the social issues that are chic or "hot-button" -- because in fact, you're right, they're not the same as they were a generation ago. Certainly things have improved.

It's time to start thinking about the shit that actually has the potential to destroy us.

You make some good points, dan. However, obviously things aren't that bad. Yet. But they certainly have the potential to be, I agree.
