    In sixth grade we had a debate about globalization. Again, I was one of the few against it.

    In twelfth grade we had to make a list of the most pressing issues. When 'national deficit' and 'economy' and 'education' were my top three, respectively, everyone made fun of me.

    Throughout college I was an avid supporter of non-interventionism and well a mild form of well, not isolationism per se, but just minding our own bloody business. I was always a minority....

    *sigh* When you bite your own tail long enough, things are going to get bloody...
    I can easily relate to all this, except that by 9th grade I stopped arguing with people over these issues. I saw no real point anymore at that stage.

    When fascism comes to Germany, Germans try to take over the world.

    When fascism comes to Italy, Italians prance around in snappy uniforms.

    Yes, I know I'm an idealist and an extravert, so I still argue with people lol.

    Victor does not deserve my recognition, as he is purely talking nonsensical gibberish.

    Yes, but it is written in a pseudo-prose, therefore you must acknowledge it.

    Life does not evolve around us. It evolves around our newly referbished bedrooms$
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?
