it wasn't really a troll, it was just a reminder that some people
would rather see funds diverted from self-perpetuating money pits
into something that can further our slow and steady world domination -
- and not the kind that requires occupation, that's just stupid...
i'm talking about the kind where we keep our place in the world by
holding everyone else to second- and third-world status until they
figure out who's boss, who's language we'll use, who's currency, and
who not to blow up as a hobby...

seems simple enough, eh?

feh... you forget, i don't play politics with reason... i play to see
other people start to decry extremism by brandishing their own...

maintaining an unchanging political view on anything is silly, given
that none of us are witnesses to much of anything, and what we do
witness is anecdotal and often emotionally charged...
