From Wikipedia.org:

"Total war is a neologism to describe an international war wherin countries or nations use all of their resources to destroy another organized country's or nation's ability to engage in war. The practice of total war has been in use for centuries, but it was only in the middle to late nineteenth century that total war was recognized as a separate class of warfare. Total war is most easily distinguished from other forms of warfare through a blurring and combining of strategy and grand strategy...

The most identifiable consequence of total war in modern times has been the inclusion of civilians as targets in destroying a country's ability to engage in war...

The final consequence of total war eventually became, ironically, an end to war between industrialized nations. After World War II, industrialized nations' ability to wage war between each other became terribly destructive largely due to nuclear capabilities...There could no longer be an economic impetus for war between industrialized nations. Instead, wars between industrialized nations were fought through proxy, such as the US war in Vietnam, the Six Day War, or the Soviet War in Afghanistan."

Get the Total War mug.
Techinically a person who eats no meat or dead animal products. Some choose so for ethical reasons while others may simply be grossed out by the prospect of eating flesh. Despite claims to the contrary, most vegetarians are not elitist or prejudiced. Another false argument also includes that eating only plant matter kills more rodents, etc which it doesn't. In order to eat beef for instance, it takes far more energy and resources to grow food for them (as opposed to eating it directly) and then killing the cows on top of it. There've been many proposals for third world countries to focus on farming as opposed to ranching because, if done properly, it takes far less resources and land space. Another common argument is that it "destroys your body" which is blatantly false. It's actually very easy to get sufficient amounts of protein as well as other nutritional necesseties. While in the past it may have been necessary to eat animals to get by, many argue that it no longer is. Our canines are a "left over" so to speak of our evolution in the past.

Despite all this, and despite that most vegetarians are non-judgmental and aren't affiliated with PETA in anyway, many get a good dose of humor out of bashing them. Presumably because the concept of not eating meat challenges their manhood and they need to defend their metaphorical dick size.
I've been a vegetarian for years, since I was 16. The rest of my family has always eaten meat but I (like most others) don't hold it against them. But you can't convince the morons of that.

*at dinner with a group of people*
Person A: Yeah, I'll have a vegetarian burrito please.

Person B: OH GOD. Oh what, are you a VEGETARIAN? Huh? You think you're too good for us?

Person A: Uhhh, no.

Person B: Yeah, I can see it in your eyes! You're not gonna stop the rest of us I hope you know!

Person A: You knowwww.... I really didn't plan on it. Eat what you want; it's your choice.

Person B: I told you you can't stop us! GOD, what is it with you people?! I'll bet you're a FASCIST too aren't ya? And a faggot. GOD, you make me sick. I bet you just can't STAND the thought of me eating a steak, can you? Huh? HUH?

Person A: Wow, you're an idiot.

A miserable failure in every way. Even conservatives are beginning to question its intelligence and effectiveness. Like Prohibition during the '20s, the banning of drugs now puts the business into the hands of organized crime.
Drugs are by no means great, but there would be far less deaths, murders, and waste of money if most of them were simply legalized or at least decriminalized.

Italian Justice who is perhaps the most conservative one on the Supreme Court. He's a god-fearing Bible thumping Christian (translate as "idiot" or "superstitious zealot") who voted against gay rights and frequently denounces abortion as "evil". Apparently very close friends with Dick Cheney, even going so far as to take a hunting trip with the man and later insisting to sit in on a trial of his claiming to be "impartial".
Much like Bill O'Reilly he frequently rambles and shouts and acts tough but as soon as he starts getting his ass handed to him like the moron he is he tries to shut them up. Most recently he fought to keep "under God" in the Pledge because this is a "nice wholesome Christian nation."

On a side note, there's a nifty little thing called The Fourth Amendment which guarantees a right to privacy so long as you're not doing anything "bad."
"Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Although according to Scalia, this doesn't apply to gay men because they're "sinful" and no justification is needed other than that.

The ninth is also worthy of notice:

"Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

Decent actor and father of Jake Busey. Seems to be more than a little crazy in more ways than one. Did a lot of drugs and hit his head very hard in a motor cycle accident. Believes he had a conversation with Death personified and in alien conspiracies. Amusingly he is also a registered pastor of sorts. Most people agree he's a bit of a nutjob, including his son, but that he's a well meaning, funny guy.
Most recent projects include an acting appearance in the videogame Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and the TV show I'm With Busey on Comedy Central. The latter does an excellent job of illustrating his behavior.
