Dear God I hope so.
Why is that- because you are afraid of the alternative(as we all are) or because you are a supporte r of Assad?

The former.

129  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Has Obama handled ISIS better than Bush would have? on: December 29, 2014, 01:02:33 am
Educate yourself. The destabilization of Iraq opened up the country to all sorts of insurgents that have been able to operate because of the instability and ISIS cropped up after the war. Bush's action played a big role in Iraq's current state. But you are entitled to your opinion.

Nothing you said dismisses my post in any way. My post stands.
130  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Has Obama handled ISIS better than Bush would have? on: December 28, 2014, 06:55:57 pm
ISIS is Bush's fault, he wanted to start the Iraq War and without that, there would be no ISIS.

This is just silly. If you wanted you could say it was Saddam's fault for empowering the Sunni thus creating resentment whenever the Shia inevitably took over. Or it was the British Empire's fault for creating Iraq in the first place after WWI.

You can push the post back as far as you want and find someone who "fault it is" that IS exists. You could probably even blame the Romans for some action or another that eventually led to the modern arrangement of things.

We're not comparing apples to apples. We're comparing the (positive vs negative) impact of events during their respective presidencies. There's also no way to know FDR's positions on issues during Washington's day, so what?

Yeah, FDR still wins.
134  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Analogy: Climate change vs. impaired driving on: December 28, 2014, 02:23:04 am
What does "global temperature" refer to? Air temperature? Ocean temperature? Land surface temperature?

Also, that drunk driving chart is probably bunk. How did they come up with that data?

Internet Libertarians: Officially denying the correlation between being drunk and being an a car accident.
135  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Secret underground tunnel to Nazi nuclear test site found in Upper Austria ? on: December 27, 2014, 09:51:56 pm
You couldn't stick one on a V2?

No because the V2 most likely isn't powerful enough to carry the heavy warhead and the technology for shaping the warhead to be placed in a rocket doesn't exist in 1945.

Honestly I doubt this has anything to do with advanced atomic research. IIRC Heisenberg didn't think you needed control rods in a reactor and other things. Ergo the Nazi nuclear program is self-limiting in the sense that their first reaction will lead to a meltdown liquidating most of their people involved with the program.

The idea that the Nazis were close to a bomb contradicts literally everything else we know about their (largely non-existent) nuclear program.

Even if the Nazis did have bombs, and the means to deliver them by the time the could produce any it would be too late. A few atom bombs aren't enough to save Germany by late 1944/1945.

Just watched it. It was decent.

FDR, hands down. Being the first President =/= the best President.
140  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: GHW Bush back in hospital as a precaution; poll finds him most popular ex-Prez on: December 26, 2014, 01:49:58 am
He's been in and out of the hospital for some time now relating to pneumonia amongst other issues IIRC.

I fear it may be soon. He is easily the best out of the living ex-Presidents and I wish him the best.

Somebody should open a betting ring on whether Jimmy Carter or Bush Sr. will be the next President to die.

My bet is Pappy Bush.
143  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Who should the GOP look to to give the 2015 SOTU Response? on: December 25, 2014, 01:16:42 am
They would be smart to send up some nonentity (nationally). That way they don't risk tarnishing one of their rising stars in a bungled response. It's a pretty hard act to follow.
144  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: CNN Poll: Solid economy lifts Obama approval to 2014-high on: December 25, 2014, 01:15:30 am
Drastically downsize the welfare state, put Kennedy's replacement on the Supreme Court, gut the budget, and put in the 20 week abortion ban law - a strong economy can blunt the effects in 2018.

Just hand it all to us and set up Warren for a 1980 style victory in 2020. It would perfectly line up with the "cyclical Presidents" theory of late.

I'm going to watch it online free at a later time. Just like everyone else.

Paying is your patriotic duty, you jerk!

I haven't paid to see a movie since at least 2006.
