Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Next time someone tells you Arafat 'offered' to step down. Even CNN says that it seemed like he was joking.

In what appeared to be a joking aside, Arafat also said he was willing to let the Palestinian Legislative Council replace him. In what appeared to be an off-the-cuff remark, a smiling Arafat also told the council, "If you want, you can bring someone else to replace me in the executive powers. I wish you would do it and give me some rest."

They even go so far as to point out that while 'condemning' attacks against Israeli civilians, he did not actually call for an end to the attacks. Like I said below. Same old crap.
