Peace Shmally!! 17.Jan.2003 23:56


Who gives a damn! I feel all this changes nothing! Iraq war is on the way as planned by Bush-wacker and company over 2 yrs. ago. 9-11 is the super excuse and all the noise is just static to the powers that unfortunately be.
It will be great entertainment to hear the roars though, but the above facts remain. :)~ ---with love from a cynical youth

cults? 03.Feb.2004 16:40

wanna live

chruches and relgions are scary nowadays. You cant tell the differnece between a group of evil cult members who want to kill people that dont agree with their wacky beliefs. I wish that fake churches wolud not be allowed to particapate in something that is promoting exaclty what they are secertly against. I found this out the hard way. Trust someone whos lucky to be alive right now. I still have the balls to let others know so they can be more aware of the "chruches" they assume means what they say but later find out their to murder someone.War is oppsite of peace. It should be somehow morally recongized that some particapants have evil dark motives exacly what peace is not so what can you do about while keeping peace.
