    this guy needs to just be made to "go away" ... go ahead, Paul... pull the roof down on the whole corrupt enterprise... no love lost there... just be sure you fade away into irrelevancy, you comb-spiddling turd blossom...

    Wolfowitz threatens senior World Bank staff.

    “If they f*ck with me or Shaha, I have enough on them to f*ck them too.” — World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz’s comments according to a new special bank panel report, which concluded that Wolfowitz’s actions have “had a dramatic negative effect on the reputation and credibility” of the bank

    That POS is just mad that they called him out on his corruption, so hes trying to claim them to be corrupt. How is it that all these neo-cons scumbags get top positions in the Bush administration and yet he isn't held accountable for any of their mistakes?

    Did he surround himself with crooks to make himself look less crooked??

    Wolfowitz is clearly a POS, but you aren't somehow implying that the World Bank is, or has always been, a beacon of ethics and honesty are you? Power always corrupts. The institution, or it's cause matters little in that regard. Simply put, the majority of clowns like he, when put in a position to profit, will. I for one would hope that this azzwipe would bring down as many of the losers as possible on his way out the door.

    Forget the "history"of the Bank.

    This asswipe was the foremost proponent of the Neocon invasion of Iraq and has managed to "Johnson" his rep at the World Bank.

    Terminate...."with extreme prejudice"

    Oh, absolutely. I'm by no means a fan of his, nor a supporter. I was perplexed at his being given such a position at the WB in the fisrt place. I was only saying that if he decides to bring down some corrupt people on his way out, I wouldn't get in his way. My sentiment is that those who fear such exposure will quietly see to it that something is worked out behind the scenes. I just think of Hastert & Co. running to the defense of William Jefferson when his office was raided by the feds.

    The elite will always protect their own.....no "standup guys" here.

    The money flows to the corrupt.

    I notice you're pretty plain-spoken when you're attacking the left or defending the right, but wordy when attacking the right or defending the left. Is it like picking up local dialects?

    Who's on first? :eek: Did I say something in creole (sp)? What am I missing here?

    For the record, I speak 2 Italian dialects. Avellinese, and Napolitano.

    Well RW's impersonation of an "independent" has always been quite poor. Got to give him a cookie for continuing to try though :D

    The best evidence of his independance is his stauch repulsion to alternative thought such as that which Keith Olbermann offers with his interviews (most recently Gen. Batiste). Thats pure independance- there are so many Generals who think that Bush does listen to them, but the liberal media doesnt interview them.

    And he's right, I am jealous.

    Interesting that my disdain for Odorman is pointed out by some, while my identical feelings for Rush and Ann Coulter are ignored. Hmmm.... I guess you always have to consider the source said points are coming from. :D

    Well.....the train is leaving the station....time to choose.

    RW...are you up to it? Or are you still waffling on who to support in Iraq??

    Ask me a question and I'll gladly answer it. I've answered your question 5 or 6 times already, but I'll do it again if you want me to. I understand you don't like my answer, but fire away.

    LOL... You routinely come off as such an elitist jerk... Everyone around you is apparently just a boy, or ignorant, or lacking enlightenment... When, in fact, you're the one who acts like an 11-year-old...

    Don't mind RW. His ego is just bruised because I highlighted the racism in and stupidity of some comments he made a few weeks ago. Since then, he's been stalking me like an attention-starved puppy. It's utterly hilarious so please, don't do anything (like pointing out how idiotic he looks) to make him stop. :D

    Like I said, got a question? I didn't think so. I've forgotton more than you'll ever know about what's going on over there. Everytime you, or anyone else in here has put forth a question, I've answered it. That you don't like my reply is your problem, not mine. It's ok though, your hate blinds you. I've put my positions on Iraq out time, and time again. Have you? Not unless you call blanket criticism and complaining a position. Again though, blind hatred, gotcha. You want us to succeed though, I know.

    Elitist? LOL! So now I'm not only a racist, homophobe, bigot... (or was it bigot and then homophobe? :D ) who's home is ragged on, now I'm an elitist. A racist, homophobe, bigot, elitist living in Chelsea. Is that scientifically possible? :eek:

    Hmmm.... Of course, when one consider's the group of (in)tolerants that hold these opinions of me.... ;)

    I call a spade a spade bud, do you?

    Hey, there it is! Got no leg to stand on, lob a retarded accusation the other way. Gotta love the (in)tolerant.

    I'm stalking you, yet you're the one talking about me. Oh, please stop! :D

    My neighbors are going to be estatic! :D

    What's funny is, in some other places, I've been called a liberal by some Libertarians. All cuz I support gun control, public education, and limited welfare programs. Oh well.

    Worse than Wolfy is Bremer. Might be the most retarded individual this admin has ever...nevermind, I forgot about Brown. :eek:

    You know, GW hasn't really scored too well on his appointments. Has anyone in here realized that?

    I guess adherence to the Religious Right agenda should not have been the litmus test for job qualification.

    Ack! I kinda hate that place. It is nothing like it used to be. When I was a kid my friends and I used to live there. Now, I can't eat there anymore. Everyone still loves it though. I guess us old schoolers are inclined to be tougher critics form experience. I'm a regular at Floramo's though. They're still pretty solid. My fav used to be Club House, accross from Floramo's, but they got bought by some anchilada place (business should go up for them now, I wonder if they're selling stock). You know, you just made me hungry. I need to order some food. :D

    Anyhting to get elected right? Those same people he dangled the carrot in front of during election time, are going to prove to be the demise of his party (outisde of himself of course) for the next 10 years to come. It's why politicians piss me off so much. They will do anything to be elected. One will pander to one group, while the next panders to another. In the end, it's the American people who suffer. Just look at illegals and the hispanic vote that drives this issue in the eyes of politicians. This country is toast.
