Re: Postify your facerity

Thanks guyyys! It was Antigone, and since the play only has about four or five parts and there were a bunch of people in the cast, my director created several parts by taking and mincing words from other parts. So I was Kreon's Public Relations Secretary, loosely based on Sarah Palin. I followed him...

Plus the fact that Japan was the only member of the axis left in the war, was quickly running out of resources, and was going to surrender very soon.

Re: North Korea carries out 2nd nuclear test

Part of me has a huge moral problem with the US telling other countries that they can or can not have nuclear weapons. We are the only country to have ever used them, and we did so incredibly irresponsibly. But that said, no one should ever have nuclear weapons, especially not North Korea, and they ...
