I've been giving it some thought for a week or so now.  In light of the events in Quebec and Ottawa last week, I have been asking myself, why don't the so called liberals get the point.  Now I'm no nuke 'em all and let god sort it out type, I enlisted back in the day (if I may borrow from so many police forces), to serve and protect.  I'm all for trying to talk out problems.  However, there do seem to be some people you can't talk to. 

Back in my school days, we didn't ask bullies to be nice, we met them in the parking lot after class, and either they went down or you did.  I can't say that it was the best way, but if you won, the bully shut up, if you lost, well then you kept trying until you did. 

So I think that the time has come to take a stand. I don't know if these jihadist groups can be completely stopped, but they should know that there is a penalty for trying to export their violence and xenophobia to the rest of the world. 

The sad thing is, I don't think the people of the western democracies have the will to pay the price this may cost in treasure or blood.  We don't seem to have the same sense responsibility and willingness to make the necessary sacrifices that our grandparents had.  I think we have become a little to spoiled and soft, scared of losing all the little perks of our highly technological society.  But some things require defense with blood.  Who was it that said, "Pay any price, bear any burden."

I know that these Islamic fundamentalists claim that the west is trying to corrupt their ancient traditions and customs, and there's no doubt truth in those claims.  But a society that doesn't change to adapt to new conditions in the world around it isn't maintaining it's traditions, it's stagnating. 

  
I've got a question.  I'm not certain if anyone out there can help me or not.  How do I get rid of the Suprasavings crap that has suddenly( as of approx. June 30) appeared on my computer, and mostly on Deviant Art.  I have tried to follow the directions the company gives about uninstalling, but the trouble is there are no files with the names the Suprasavings popup gives on my computer, I've uninstalled everything dated June 1 this year or later, but no luck.  Among other things it seems to have disabled my ability to go back to a category when I look at a picture, and I have go all the way back to the main message area each time, it's taking a huge amount of time to go through my messages, especially if I'm saving pictures...
Its annoying as hell, and forcing me to cut back on my downloading of art, as I don't want to spend six or seven times the usual amount of time I do on line...
