Turns out that jd was just a little premature. Our enemies have been saying for a long time that we ruled the world, so some folks figured, "Why not make it true?"
I'm not really interested in ruling the world - I just want to rule my world - which I think is true for most people. But if the bastards out there want to make it impossible for us to live and love unless we rule their world too ... well, I guess that only leaves us one option.
It's likely to be rough for a few years. Take care of yourself. Keep the faith.
