I get it. Blah Blah Blah. Talk is cheap. When the sh!t comes down, you keep twiddling those thumbs. There are other avenues that need to be explored. You know, Warrior, you don't even come close to realizing the hordes that are massing on Israel's borders.(aka Syria) This ain't 1967 and you ain't tucked into your Vietnam era aircraft killing machine. Actually, you are starting to bore me.

LOL. He did spend a lot of time showing them. Interesting to note that he doesn't have my package. 2 more shows. I think. Ray Donovan's final show for the season, on Showtime. What to do. What to do.

Taking away the mindless comedies geared toward a fifth grade education audience, all the Drama shows up for Emmy's are on cable. Tell you something? It tells me something about attention span. Veep, Newsroom, Breaking Bad, Homeland, House of Cards, were and are fantastic. Unfortunately, it's not free. But, neither was your college education. Arf Arf.

I get the channels, I just try to limit my viewing time. It's too easy to slip into vidiocy and get lost in the plot lines. And I'm past the point where I can't stand to miss an episode. DVR...ever heard of it? It'll give you your life back.

DVR? What's that? 8-Track, what's that? 2 sided cassette players? What's that? It's standard DVD Players already being replaced by Blue-Ray. Next? Blue Ray being replaced by 3-D viewers. What the fccuk is "vidiocy"? Being past the point of missing an episode is only the hemp talking. I mean Sundays have to have special viewing alternatives other than just being here. Who ya got? Breaking Bad or Ray Donovan? Ray is probably in for another season. 2 more Breaking Bad. What to do. What to do.

Wrong Bongo. Vidiocy. Sounds just like you trying to entice Ahmad to join you in your vidiocy madness. No?

Noun. The state or condition of being addicted to video games.
The man who was addicted to video games was suffering from vidiocy. You may not like my link, but, at least, I posted one.

No matter how much McCain’s original audience,(attributed only) or any since, appreciates his remarks; the dark apocalypticism in which they are couched is really not so healthy. The doomsday scenario that he predicts, even if accurate, is surely not the basis upon which to support the existence of the State of Israel anymore than a relentless campaign of suicide terror is the basis upon which to support the creation of a Palestinian state.

Yep, sounds exactly like something you'd write.

Not.

If you interpret their position as meaning that before they go down they will take a lot of their attackers with them, I think you're absolutely right. If you're implying that their stance on survival is an impediment to peace with the Arabs I think you're a chump.(If it is he and not thee, you have my apology)

No apology needed. As I said, the Devil's Advocate was speaking for the sake of discussion. Personally, I see no other way out other being ready. Arabs are a different breed. For example:

I'm not sure how far back we'd need to go but I'm pretty sure I'm already on record asking the Arabs where they'd like us to ship their third-holiest site. It's in Israel...if not for the treaty with Jordan they could box it up and send it to Aqaba. In fact, Jordan could use the tourism revenue.

Having had my customary Sunday night 2 lbs of steamers, and doing all the dishes like a good little boy, I'm heading for my dose of vidiocy. I'm taking Ray Donovan as it's their season finale. John Voight at his best. It put me on to this song that got me dancing with the Mrs tonight. Silly sh!t , but we did it. Try it, You'll like it. Good night ,Commander.

This was never an announced goal for the operation, neither was the eradication of Hamas. Operation "Cast Lead" was solely conducted for the purpose of ending the terrorist rocket attacks on our southern towns and cities, as declared very clearly from the start by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Minister of Defense Ehud Barak. This has been achieved as evident of the current calm in our southern border and 3 more days won't change it.. Israel has changed the equation and Hamas now knows the price it will pay for every violation of this calm.
Gil'ad Shalit shall return home in due time, I trust my government is doing whatever it can to secure his release from captivity from the hands of his vile abductors.
I hope one day Egypt and Israel can cooperate , sadly we did not utilize camp david to benefit from Israel experience in government governance and private business.
