  •  again you are not responding to the substance (0+ / 0-)

    of the conversation! would you or would you not blame the President for any terrorist acts in this country?

    •  I would probably blame the perpetrator of the... (7+ / 0-)

      ...act.

    •  So far, there is no substance to the conversation (3+ / 0-)

      to respond to. Add a few more paragraphs to your diary, maybe?

      At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)

    •  A Familiar "Argument" (5+ / 0-)
      "Comrades!" he cried. "You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself. Our sole object in taking these things is to preserve our health. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organisation of this farm depend on us. Day and night we are watching over your welfare. It is for YOUR sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples. Do you know what would happen if we pigs failed in our duty? Jones would come back! Yes, Jones would come back! Surely, comrades," cried Squealer almost pleadingly, skipping from side to side and whisking his tail, "surely there is no one among you who wants to see Jones come back?"
