I Don't Believe in These Tests Anyway!

.::What Famous Leader Are You?::.

I Am What I Am... and That's All That I Am!!

I've taken .::these tests::. multiple times and get the same results. I have no idea how accurate they are, but the results only confirm, for me, that who we think we are isn't always how we're perceived.

Extroverted (E) 60.53% Introverted (I) 39.47%

Intuitive (N) 64.52% Sensing (S) 35.48%

Perceiving (P) 50% Judging (J) 50%

ENTP - "Inventor". Enthusiastic interest in everything and always sensitive to possibilities. Non-conformist and innovative. 3.2% of the total population.

What is Everyone Talking About?

Rarely do people intellectually process what the talkingheads on television are saying. As a result, it is easier for those with ulterior motives to introduce language into the mainstream that validates their actions and beliefs. Without critical thought, they are able to "frame the debate" on any issue.

A prime example is the "insurgency" in Iraq, comprised of the Sunnis, Shias, et al. There is no "insurgency" in Iraq. There is a war, however distasteful their methods of causing death and destruction may be to us, we also cause death and destruction while participating in war.

in·sur·gent ( P ) Pronunciation Key (n-s├╗rjnt)adj.
Rising in revolt against established authority, especially a government.
Rebelling against the leadership of a political party.
The U.S. is not an authority, nor is it established in Iraq. Those who are fighting against them are resisting an occupying foreign army. That would make them resistance fighters. By mislabeling them, it adds credence to Smirky's belief that it is natural for the white man with the biggest army to be in charge of other people, no matter how illegal the military's presence in their country may be.

.::Political Conversation: Condi’s Slip::.
A pressing issue of dinner-party etiquette is vexing Washington, according to a story now making the D.C. rounds: How should you react when your guest, in this case national-security adviser Condoleezza Rice, makes a poignant faux pas? At a recent dinner party hosted by New York Times D.C. bureau chief Philip Taubman and his wife, Times reporter Felicity Barringer, and attended by Arthur Sulzberger Jr., Maureen Dowd, Steven Weisman, and Elisabeth Bumiller, Rice was reportedly overheard saying, “As I was telling my husb—” and then stopping herself abruptly, before saying, “As I was telling President Bush.” Jaws dropped, but a guest says the slip by the unmarried politician, who spends weekends with the president and his wife, seemed more psychologically telling than incriminating. Nobody thinks Bush and Rice are actually an item. A National Security Council spokesman laughed and said, “No comment.”
I guess it should have been obvious that only a confused Black woman in love would shill as hard for this administration as Condi has. Ewww!! I wonder if she has daydreams about being in empty-eyed Laura Bush's place. Tha' Skeeza and Chimpy holding hands as they stand before a shocked press corp(se) and announce how wonderful interracial love is. *gaaaaackkkk!*

That sad woman! Doesn't she know that men like him wouldn't touch her with a ten-foot pole? Ol' Dubya is a white woman's man all the way!! Other white men would go for what they know in private, but never publicly. I would hope that she's been around white folks long enough to at least know that she should never even entertain the thought of some "crushes."

Chas Freeman—
"Wars end only when the defeated accept defeat, not when the victor declares victory. ... Arrogant daydreams that inspire military actions can become humiliating nightmares that produce political debacles."

David Podvin—
Conservatives explode in rage when the current disaster is compared with Vietnam - there is nary a rice paddy in view! But the parallel is unmistakable: America has again put its soldiers in a chaotic killing field where they are unable to distinguish friend from foe. In seeking to justify this endeavor that they insist in no way resembles the Vietnam War, Republicans have dusted off all their arguments from the Vietnam War: if we fail to subdue these ideologues, it will have a domino effect…we better fight the enemy over aid and comfort there or we will have to fight them over here…it may have been a mistake to get in, but it would be a bigger mistake to get out…to disagree with the war is to give to the enemy…
