I had no idea that mercenary licenses actually existed and could be revoked. At least they managed to get paid a friggin' huge amount despite basically botching the job. I think that Tagon would be impressed.

Man, it makes me wanna cry that I backed the wrong horse to get in on the scam of a lifetime. I could be making seven figures now, had I gone to Bob Jones university instead. Just goes to show kids, be careful who you vote for - pick the one who'll be most grateful.

Oh well, at least I don't pay taxes as such either now. Hey, maybe the war'll drag out long enough that there's still a chance! GIULIANI 2008
