Re: A newbie's confusion about GPL (BS)
Boy has this thread gone out into left/right field, however you want to term it, and gotten off topic. Why do we allow ourselves to be distracted and flame back and forth, completely ignoring why this list exists, we're here to form a constructive dialogue and to help each other solve real problems with specific systems, not argue over stuff completely disconnected from this list's purpose. Nobody can ever win an argument without killing their opponent physically, emotionally or otherwise; and to endeavor to do such is downright immoral and unethical.
P.S. - On the political side of things I am a Christian, an American, and a Conservative and if anyone gives a rip about my view of america's position in the world they can email me at email@example.com... OFF-LIST, where this sort of degenerate argument should be, freeing the rest of the people who want to use this list constructively from the mess clogging our inboxes.

Do you think you've got a bigger dick than me, too, just because you're an American?
I was talking to this electrician who just relocated here to Canada from Russia, and I was blown away when he told me that they didn't brainwash their people in The Commie Days half as much as the US does today. Yeah right, I said! But he said that they never had movies where the Americans were depicted as ignorant morons like you guys do. Anyway, to make a long story short, the guy's got a point.
If you, as an individual, want to remain ignorant, that's up to you. But don't criticize us for having the courage to think beyond what they tell us on the American news.
And it's not about any of that European bullshit either. It's about what's true, and what's right.

You haven't seen American military power yet. All of you've seen is us
holding back, cause the TV crew is looking.
I was on a plane to Cali, sitting next to a guy going to Ft. Pendleton.
He was in PsOps -- told me some great stories.
One was about Somalia. All you heard on TV was the American getting
dragged through the streets. You didn't hear about the next day, when
we went in to get some payback: guy told me we fired so many shots, the
soldiers gun barrels melted. Killed about 200 civies for payback.
Another guy told me the true story abo ut the first gulf war: on TV, you
saw pictures of Iraqis surrendering to TV crews. In the radio room, my
friend told me stories of Iraqis walking out of bunkers only to be
So, if you want to get all pissed off, get REALLY pissed off, cause the
truth is 500 times worse than your theories, but don't be mistaken that
what's going on Iraq is because we couldn't massacre the fuck out of
them. We're holding back, trying to be nice.
The whole European "we've evolved beyond war" is an illusion - I can't
wait for the next good war you get yourselves into. It'll happen. And
I'll be there calling you a baby killer.
