Scary Quote

“Naturally, the common people don’t want war, but after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.”
--Hermann Goering,
Speaking at the Nuremberg Trials after WW II

I think I just died a little inside…

(Cheer up: I’m working on something funny for tomorrow…)

This has nothing to do with your post so bear with me. I decided to take your "Snap, Crackle, Pop" quiz. I think this photo http://www.dollreference.com/images/ac_kellogg_snap_crackle_pop68.jpg

with Pop doing his very best Michael Jackson/ballet toe peak is definitive evidence. Case closed.

Mariel: Perhaps you don't understand... we have a President that can't speak the language (Okay, he can... but certainly not well and certainly not in a correct manner...) Plus, he's a douchebag.

EGL: Comment on whatever you want whenever you want... it's always wonderful to hear from you. Yeah, Snap!'s definitely the fag (they're all pretty gay--not as gay as the Keebler Elves, but still pretty gay. Only Snap! is the one naked and wearing a wig at Pride...)
