Quotation of the Day

America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship. You’ve got to want it bad, because it’s gonna put up a fight. It’s gonna say, “You want free speech? Let’s see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil; who is standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want to claim this land as the ‘land of the free’? Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Now show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then you can stand up and sing about the ‘land of the free.'”

— Aaron Sorkin, “The American President”

    I’m currently debating whether it’s worth $150 to get the British DVDs for S5&6.

    Hey man. I’ve been trying to get in contact with you.

    flashfire on the sfgiantsfans board is becoming real nuisance. I’ve stayed the bigger man, yet he is still insulting me pointlessly there.

    Can you help me out with him please?

    I think maybe you should read the quotation above, for my response to that whole thing on sfgiantsfans. 🙂

    Why did you ban me from the forum? Flashfire is the one who insulted me first? Why are picking on me, the innocent victim? That’s really messed up dude.

    Actually, you called him an asshole, first. I saw the comment before you deleted it. You’re not the victim, here.
