Based on that statement, some would label you a 'cynic.' I'll just term you a 'realist' until you give me cause to change my mind.

I'm definitely not a cynic.

That statement was based on the many hours (probably tens of thousands of hours) I've spent thinking about war and politics. My father is a vet... so I am STILL being lectured about how MacNamara lied to the American people blah blah blah. I don't know how many hours I've spent watching the history channel... so that's an influence. I also worked for the Senate (paid intern) for a short stint and I was able to meet (and thus mentally probe) many politicians... so I think I have a decent understanding of the typical politician's persona (few weren't egotistical). Basically, this is just my tiny little perspective on the matters... I admit it. I'm not a member of the executive branch and probably never will be *crosses fingers*, so I will never know all the gory details known as the truth (which can be different from the "truth" we receive via the media).

And I would wear womens panties.

How is that different from your usual Friday night outing?

Well when I go out on Fridays I wear a miniskirt and a cup to hold my shit in place.  When I wear the panties to the army I will just have my balls hanging out both sides of the crotch.    :smile:  Now that everyone has that mental image in their minds...

The politicians only represent the corporations that buy them.  Voting is almost useless.

Do you get 'hit on' much when dressed like that? Nobody gives me the time of day except drunken marines and old priests...

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

If 1000 people were about to die, but YOU could save them by shooting down a small, innocent kid, what would you do? Are 1000 lives worth the killing of a child? And what if that child was yours?

Well I can answer that one quite easily.
Simply put, it would depend on how much those 1000 lives meant to the person with the ability to save them.

And I will say this personal thought for it just jumped into my head without refinement and feels honest;

If it were indeed my child that was responsible for 1000 innocent lives or held them towards death, I would personally want to be the one to take my own child's life. I would feel in part responsable, and would rather bear that full burden than anyone else bearing or cleaning it up for me.

I think only a coward of will and accountability would balk at that question.

Anything can be used to justify anything else.

What's your point?

Cheers,
