Rick Santorum is a Goddamm Moron

Santorum: US ‘lost the war in Iraq’

Pennsylvania’s former GOP Senator, Rick Santorum, slammed President Barack Obama on his handling of the Iraq war Sunday, saying on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the United States had “lost the war in Iraq” because Obama was pulling troops out, leaving Iran as the dominating force in the country.

How the fuck much more can we win in Iraq?
We defeated the Iraqi Army.
We captured and executed Saddam Hussein.
We blew up Uday and Kusay (sorry, I have no idea how to spell the pricks' names)
There is nothing left to win.
It's like we're the home team and we have the lead after the top of the ninth and Santorum is insisting we play the bottom of the inning. And go into extra innings for the hell of it. Except it's not baseball and people are getting killed.

We have already won everything there was to win. We have done more winning than Charlie Sheen. What could we possibly have to gain by staying even longer?

“To be in a position where, really, the Iranians now have more sway over the Iraqi government than the United States just shows the weakness of our diplomatic effort, the weakness of this president in being able to shape the battlefield, if you will,” Santorum said

You know Iraq is its own country, right? We don't need to be in charge of Iraq, and we have no right to be. Iraq can figure out its own future. They don't need us to be involved and they don't want us to be involved, and we get nothing from being involved. Unless you own Blackwater, or KBR or Custer Battles or Wackenhut, etc.

So how much longer should we stay, Rick? How many more deaths and maimings do there need to be to make you happy?

Time Warner Even More Evil than Previously Thought.

Boss Told Me To Stop Giving Dying Co-Worker CPR, Says Service Rep

Last month, a Time Warner Cable customer service rep died at her desk. After any unexpected death, people searched for answers, explanations, someone to blame. But in this case, there may have actually been something foul afoot. A local news station reports that after a co-worker began giving CPR to 67-year-old Julia Nelson, a supervisor allegedly told her to stop and "get back on the phone and take care of customers."

Nelson slumped at her desk at the Time Warner Call Center in Garfield Heights, Ohio, and wasn't breathing by the time paramedics arrived. But before that happened, a co-worker rushed over and began administering CPR, the woman told WOIO, only to be asked to stop. Employees at the scene have confirmed this report.
The woman was also told later by another supervisor that she could be "held liable if something goes wrong."
 Time Warner released a statement, denying any wrongdoing: "Time Warner responded appropriately to a medical emergency. Our company has procedures in place to respond to emergencies. We are saddened by the loss of one of our employees who was a co-worker and a friend. Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time."
