    "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value."

    Above is an excerpt from Thomas Paine's "The Crisis" from back on December 23, 1776. I think it works for the situation we are in now. The Hell that is Madrid and the Tyrant that is Schuster must be toppled. REVOLUTION!

    I, using my newbie powers, designate this thread as the place were we rally our Barca pride and, and, um.... you get the point.
