I'm more concerned with the essays right now. My wills knowledge is scant, at best.
Neither video proves or alludes to any elitism whatsoever.
You are not elitist by the mere fact that you are wealthy. But I am not surprised one bit that a democrat doesn't understand what the word means either.
Ditto to everything you just said.I just can't imagine Farve ending his career as anything but a Packer
As a hardcore 49ers fan:
I never envisioned Jerry Rice playing for the Raiders or Joe Montana playing for the Chiefs. Those two are the greatest players ever at their positions (and in the case of Rice, there isn't even any debate about it).
"Ask yourself, would you want an American troop to be treated the way we treat our detainees? I should hope not, but that is what we are setting them up for and will have no grounds for complaining when it happens."
You mean terrorists might start doing things to our soldiers, like beheading them or cutting off their genetalia and shoving it down their throats?
Boy. That would be terrible if it wasn't already happening well before we tortured anyone.
What you are doing is equivocating us with them, and that's your mistake in this situation. We are responding to terrorists who hide behind the people they claim to be fighting for, who use children as shields and who set IED's with the intent to maim anyone they don't manage to kill. For being there. In Iraq.
"I'll be throwing one party when he leaves office and another when his associates are charged with war crimes.
Worst. President. Ever."
Sounds more like the most boring parties ever.
There will be no war crime charges. And Obama won't win. The reason he won the primary was because of his ability to unify the far left fringe. Now that he's starting to soften his stances and move his campaign towards the center, he loses his advantage.
Of course if he wins, get ready to get raped on taxes when you manage to pass the bar - his tax hikes are likely to hit you harder than anyone, especially if you manage biglaw.
An Obama presidency is nothing more than a new old policy that failed before and will fail again. At least with McCain, we have a chance to avoid the massive depression that would be the result of an Obama Presidency. Gas prices are higher than ever, people's homes are worth less than they were 6 months ago, mortgage rates are rising, and spending is down. Obama wants to raise taxes, which will leave the average american with even less disposable income, causing a further dip in consumer confidence and an even worse economy. Food prices will rise significantly as the cost of living rises, production drops and unemployment skyrockets, directly proportional to the effect taxes will have on the american small business owner (many of whom will be forced to either reduce staff or go bankrupt).
If you don't like Bush, that's ok. But the Obamessiah won't save or solve any single problem that you think is important. Not one. He's now changed his stance on Iraq and afghanistan so much that it seems quite similar to McCain's plan.
Obama won't win, and if he does it will be a very difficult, depressing 4 years followed by a Republican President and Congress.
Did anyone notice or care that the democrat run congress has beaten their own low score on the congressional rating, a new record low in the history of that rating?
Blame Bush! Blame Bush! Blame Bush!
See you in November.
Gore has to be part of the discussion.Gore was never president, so he couldn't be the worst of all time.
The only way you can really evaluate Bush, is against what someone else would have done in his situation. How much better would Gore have dealt with the last 7.5 years? What would he have done differently? Why would it have worked better?
You are all entitled to your opinion, but it seems to me like most of the people who think bush is the worst ever, completely ignore his accomplishments.
Why would you do that?
It's almost as bad as when all the right-wingers thought Clinton was the worst ever because of his impeachment.
Bush is a great athlete but will be nothing more than a 3rd down back in the NFL.
It's hard always being right. 3 years later and Bush is not even a functional 3rd down back. Bush finished last season with just 6 total touchdowns and 581 yards rushing, averaging 3.6 yards per carry.
