Why do men hate women?

We're jealous. We don't understand you. We view nearly everything completely differently.

Chris Rock has a joke about married men being shoved together by their wives-"Talk to him. He likes baseball." Men are angry with women because your entire universe consists of things that we don't even know exist.

There is no excuse for rape or assault on a woman or a girl. But most men also live in fear that nearly any interaction with a woman can be misinterpreted as hostile, resulting in serious consequences for them.

Oh, yeah.

I hope George Bush is right. I really hope the Middle East will be transformed by the War in Iraq. That would result in millions of people being infinitely better off, not to mention happier and healthier.

That still doesnt change the fact that he didnt have to do it on the cheap, and he didnt have to lie about why he was doing it, and he didnt have to bungle the postwar and battle for the hearts and minds so horribly. That will be the lasting legacy of this war-one hundred years of children taught to hate us by fathers (or widowed mothers) who hate us because of Abu Ghraib. And Abu Ghraib is not the fault of the media, it is the fault of leadership. Funny how all this personal responsibility rhetoric ends when they are the ones who are responsible.

"It's just a goddamned piece of paper."
-George W. Bush, on the Constitution of the United States

Impeachment is too good for this guy. The unabashed gall of this man makes me literally nauseous. If you voted for Bush, and you're not ashamed of yourself, I'm not even sure you're human.
