Re: Senate report on CIA torture

Sorry if I don't let you get away with implying that I am racist (I see it as a way to minimize my thoughts and expressions) as a non sequitur.

Re: Senate report on CIA torture

I don't think I ever accused you of racism, but I am definitely in the camp that says you are an apologist. I don't think I've ever read anything from you that I thought was racist.

Re: Senate report on CIA torture

I am not going to get worked up about it.

The only thing I remember you getting worked up about is when some racist is accused of being a racist. Not that you get very worked up, I grant, but that seems to be stuff that get's your [more]

Re: Senate report on CIA torture

I can accept people making mistakes. Those things happen. But, it's too bad the people minimizing or defending these tactics don't know what McCain was referring to when he mentioned "national honor"

Re: Racism without racists

For years the timber companies hired high school kids to plant trees. Packing a 60lb ruck full of seedlings up 30% hillsides bent over with a hoedad was work.
