Why Is There So Much Hate on This Forum

I despise the evil little bastard to the bottom of my soul. Lately his smirking, smarmy face and his arrogant body language has me laughing more than angry, although I soon stop when I think of the dead and crippled Iraqi children. As for Rumsfeld, well the less said about that munchkin the better. If ever there was a walking manifestation of the "short man syndrome" it's him!
I mean, with Howard, even most of those who voted for him know that he's an opportunistic, rat-cunning politician who is looking out for No.1. But he's THEIR man, doing what they want him to do, which is keep in power and enact legislation which favours their profits. But I think even the members of Howard's party would baulk at Bush and Rumsfeld.

I've still probably got netmeeting on this computer, but from now on I'll stick to "safe" areas!

Strange about Stockholm, because here in Australian "Massage Parlour" is synonymous with "brothel". In fact "respectable" massage parlours have to discreetly let it be known that they aren't brothels.LOL

You are right, there is hate stemming from fear in the world. Unfortunately, I think this fear is being stimulated by vested interests. You don't have to be a mind-reader to guess who I mean <g>. It is the old divide and conquer which successive imperial tyrants have employed since time immemorial....and people still fall for it!

care for the US. If I were the GOP, I would be very
shocking as it may be to you vig, it's been brought up and shot down before. when i was at college in 1993, clinton flew in and gave a huge speech to kick off his socialized health care plan, and it was shot down. you like your health care system? good for you. don't assume we want it here.

That bide the pelting of this pitiless storm,
How shall your houseless heads, and unfed sides,
Your loop'd and window'd raggedness defend you
From seasons such as these? O I have ta'en
Too little care of this: take physic, pomp,
Expose thyself to feel what wretches feel
That thou may'st shake the superflux to them,
And show the heavens more just.

Britain has a universal health care system. My friend lives in NZ now but was born in England. She collapsed whilst on holiday over there and needed at least a million pounds worth of treatment....she got it, and didn't pay one single penny!
I've had two lengthy hospital stays over the last six years....didn't cost me a cent....because I'm on the pension. Those who are working pay a small percentage of their tax to keep it going...the Medical Benefits companies hate it! LOL
Ah! well....stay well, and healthy of course! <g>
