    But when you disarm them, you at once offend them by showing that you distrust them, either for cowardice or for want of loyalty, and either of these opinions breeds hatred against you.

    This would have no impact on any large oil company being that the gas and oil usage would be absorbed on the fillup days prior and after. The only guy's you would hurt would be the innocent gas station owner that would lose sales for that day, but he would still sale slushees and Twinkies so no big deal. In Hawaii it would not have much of an impact for damn sure being that 78% of our electricity is produced from Petroleum.

    I wish people would auto go to this site before forwarding this crap.

    Oh, did you see that one of the creators of snopes was on NightLine the other night regarding some of the bogus photos that have come out of Iraq (not the prison ones to my knowledge, just other ones that have been doctored...)

    I hate getting spam. It always seems pretty obvious to me when its bullshit. Snopes is a great way to confirm it.

    does this cut and paste shit ever end?

    but hey, think of the children; they are our future.. might as well put that in there...
    and for crying out loud, STOP SMOKING as second hand smoke will negatively affect our children.... and they are our future,, if you didn't know.....

    and please donate money to each and every worthy cause that is out there... they all deserve it. JUST GIVE MONEY THOUGH, don't invest any of your time...

    how about the widows and children.. as these people are special too..... donate generously..

    and if you don't believe me, i will keep on cutting and pasting all this shit until i ram it up YOUR behind.....
