minus one hour in life answering questions about the Bush administration: Me: Hello? Lady: This is the California Republican Party . . . Me (interrupting): This is nice because I've been wanting to ask a few questions. First, where are the weapons of mass destruction? Bush repeatedly said Iraq had weapons, Cheney continues to say it. Lady: Iraq was making deals with France and Russia so that the UN wouldn't invade. Me: Take it to alt.conspiracy.* newsgroups. I believe Bush's words were "The British intelligence has learned that the Saddam sought to obtain large quantities of uranium from Africa." Lady: You do realize we have been under attack for more than 25 years. Me: From Saddam Hussein? (chuckle) Strange, I thought he had only been in power since the 80s, and that he was installed by Reagan. Lady: No, from the terrorists. Me: Care to prove the Iraq-Al Qaeda connection, then? Other than the fact that both Saddam and Osama were buddy-buddy with the Reagan administration, of course. As was Iran, hence the IRAN-Contra scandal. Also, why exactly did Halliburton get a no-bid contract? Bush and his ilk tend to forget that the capitalist system thrives on competition, which a monopoly is not. It went on like this, touching on gay marriage, Canadian drugs, the Bush tax plan, the mission to Mars, etc. for another hour or so. Lady: Is this a prank call? Me: Funny, since you called me, I was about to ask the same question.
