"i hoep you are bashing bush for good reasons and not just doin it because its the "cool" thing to do. Your simplistic meter hits hard. keep it up. " -- ryan severud.
"Thank you indeed Ryan, and yes, my writing is more than a mere reaction to contemporary world events you'll be glad to here." -- Colin Baker.
"Neither artistic nor relevant. You ought to pay more attention to the politics of that shit-hole of the western world in which you live instead of sticking your nose in the business of this country. How can you criticize your neighbor's house when you live in a pig pen yourself? " -- Richard.
"Hello Richard, Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't the US military been criticizing their neighbours' houses (often murderously so) for decades now?" -- Colin Baker.
