General Off-Topic Board / Re: Is Iran Next?

Another thing to keep in mind is that Iran perfected modern terroism and suicide bombing. Look at what they did to Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war -- they sent out thousands of "human wave" suicide attackers which bogged Saddam's army down. If we invaded Iran, we'd see an insurgency there that would make Iraq look tame by comparison.

I think I read that in 5th grade (Terabithia).

This guy has a great shot at Georgetown and probably is all-but guaranteed a GW acceptance. These are much higher ranked schools in the area and while Howard is a good school, I don't know why anyone would choose them over the aforementioned.

My last day is 2 days away....and it can't come soon enough!  ;D

Very good points, as always. And while I don't think Stevens would like to see someone like Alito replace him, I think he probably would rather see a fellow Republican succeed him than someone of the opposite party. I was reading an article somewhere (and I can't find it to save my life -- it was on suggesting he'd had some discussions with the administration, had told them he's stepping down in 05, and they had promised to replace him with someone more in line with his judicial philosophy.

Of course that's all speculation, but I thought it was very interesting all the same (and plausible). It's definitely an interesting position to be in. The question is, how much does the administration respect Stevens' work on the Court? I guess we'll see just how much of a "big tent" today's Republican party really is and how much Bush is willing to stand up to the hardliners in his party.

I don't think Lori Dhue is that hot...she's kind of mannish.

Fair enough....conservatives in general aren't as visible and outspoken as the liberals. But at the same time, liberals on average aren't exactly a poor group of people themselves -- most of them are upper middle class and seem to have no problem with higher taxation....

Why on earth would he want to go to Howard when he has a decent shot at T14 and practically a lock on T25?

While Braveheart's idea makes a lot of sense -- and I can only throw out anecdotal evidence in response -- it does seem like there are a whole lot of liberal elitist types in law school.

Also, the longer you're in school, the further left you tend to lean...
