Carter's "peace" was based on continuing aid to brutal regimes, meaning he was funding war even if not actively participating.

Right, but he was still "better" than Reagan or Clinton. Sadly, we will never have a peacetime president.

And possibly never had
No, there were several peacetime presidents:
John Adams
John Quincy Adams
Zachary Taylor
Millard Fillmore
Franklin Pierce
Andrew Johnson
The Gilded Age Presidents
Theodore Roosevelt
William Taft
Calvin Coolidge
Herbert Hoover
Jimmy Carter.

I guess no one wants to guess if a peacetime president will happen again, like Carter?

So that's 38 states, DC, Puerto Rico, and Guam all have SSM in some way, shape, or form.

By the way Obama, there's this prison in Cuba you could stand to do something about. You wanted it shut down from the beginning, you know.

Peacetime presidents are becoming rare. The last one was Carter, and he was almost 40 years ago. Is it possible for another peacetime president?

Of course, the last true peacetime president was Hoover, and that will never happen again.

Obama's like the opposite of Bush; he's getting better while Bush got worse.

No, we had no reason to until we were attacked.

People need to stop comparing themselves to Lincoln. Or Reagan, for that manner, since his reputation is going down.

Given that the average American lives to mid-70's, raising the retirement age isn't too bad of an idea.

This has been done before. I vote Victor because he's the most sane one.

Yes, it was probably around 2010 or so, whenever it became obvious that it was going to happen nationally.

War is hell and I always hate it but this was one of the few times where there was a truly existential threat to humanity that needed to be defeated.

Title is misleading.

Anyway, are these books only in Texas or are they going to the rest of the country?

I just was looking for a clever display name and I remembered reading the term here before.
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama to Denounce "Conversion Therapy" on: April 10, 2015, 02:21:02 pm
And here I'll once again point out that it does work sometimes, but more often than not it fails. The few success stories are the reasons people do them.
23  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Your Bottom 10 Presidents List on: April 10, 2015, 08:57:42 am
Bush made the war on drugs physical, Nixon - Clinton didn't kill Mexican cartells.
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Your Bottom 10 Presidents List on: April 09, 2015, 05:27:36 pm
Ok, let's see:

At higher numbers, it gets hard, but at ten we have the early general who died from cherries, Zachary Taylor.

At nine, it's still hard, but it's the boring and strict Jimmy Carter.

Eighth is the man without a party, John TraitorTyler.

At seven there's the most corrupt president in the history of the United States, Richard Nixon.

Sixth of all is a man who did nothing about a national crisis, Herbert Hoover.

It's easy now to keep going, so at fifth is George W. Bush, the one who caused an unjust war, installed the police state, made the war on drugs literal, and pretended to be dumb about it.

Four is Millard Fillmore. Three words: Fugitive Slave Act.

Third worst is Franklin Pierce, another Southern sympathizer.

Second is Andrew Johnson, who was a horrible racist and was one vote away from being removed from office.

It's near fact that James Buchanan is the worst, or second worst. Everyone knows why.

Harrison and Garfield are excluded.

Only Jefferson and Tyler would support the Confederacy.
