As usual, filthy, you have a unique way of cutting through the bullshit and hitting the root of the matter.

Well I could have sworn filthy got it backward unless he was using net sarcasm, isnt it the song thats important and not the language.

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini

You know, I'd actually read Filthy's last sentence as "It's not the language that's important." I guess that's the conclusion my brain was expecting from the context, so that's what I "saw." I still think Filthy meant to type that. Either that, or he's just proving how easily the human mind may be manipulated.

Daily show had a clip of Laura Bush saying she thought it was fine to sing the anthem in Spanish. The interviewer then asks if she and Georgie disagree on this matter.

They're both a couple of airheads.



I've heard this elsewhere. The point they brought up is that she reversed her position 180 degrees in 25 seconds.

Two words. Stepford Wife.

And Georgie didn't sing the National Anthem in Spanish. I saw Dick Cheney's lips move slightly. Just like always.

Way off topic -- but has anyone else noticed how much Filthy resembles Judge Roy Phantly Bean?
