How quaint, Starfox calling me lame.
Rousing was not talking about how good a speech I gave. It was a way to describe the tone of the speech, as in a rallying the troops around the flag. Saying "OMG I GAVE THIS AWESOMELY GREAT SPEECH" would be saying how good the speech was. And those words never came out of my mouth in anyway other than sarcastically. Go find a dictionary. It can help out with things like this.
Plus, ask anyone, I am pretty lame.
I accept the reality of everything. Doesn't mean I don't look back on it with regret. But hey, apparently I am supposed to be happy about the fact that they have had influence on the decisions of two of my allies that could be help with the defense of my alliance/bloc instead of being part of the dog pile on the other side.
We've been down before, we've been up before and we have always kept on ticking. That's what we are going to continue to do.
EDIT: Apparently editing a post with a quote in it breaks the quote. Oops.
