  3. So lawyers are going to start billing hours for posting on AFMB? I just saw dollar signs flash in the eyes of several members.
  4. All correct. Just pointing out it's not moral equivalence. At the very least, they are cutting their losses with the companies instead of a wholesale giveaway. And my more pressing criticism was (and remains) that the NYT asserted that McCain supported the loans, when he has been saying the opposite. He might be a hypocrite, but the NYT didn't prove it merely by stating that he supports it. They didn't quote him once, they didn't cite to a vote, nothing. They just threw him under the bus that Bush is driving and never looked back. Sure, and you're right that loans are not the same as giveaways
  5. Yeah, he wants to cap the number of people from a different race who can live here so that the US can preserve a white majority. That's borderline white supremacist. And John McCain agreed with him about the cap. You are reading in to it and coming out with the wrong idea. O'Reily wants to cap the number of people who are flooding our country illegally and putting a strain on our resources and taking jobs away from American citizens. But of course you wanted to make it a race thing. That's the easy way to explain it so that you don't have to back it up. No, I'm reading what he said and using
  6. You're right that a $400 billion loan is not the same as a giveaway. However, consider that the US has to pay interest on the money it's lending, and since the government is lending money to these companies at cut rates right now, it's likely that we'll be in the red on interest. Also consider what happens if the companies default on the loans, leaving the Fed with a bunch of hard-to-sell securities (that are backed by mortgages). Taxpayers take even more of a loss on the loans. Considering how irresponsible a lot of these companies have been (e.g., CEO salaries and bad mortgage lending pra

  8. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/28/business...agewanted=print March 28, 2008 News Analysis Parties Differ on Whom Economic Aid Should Help By EDMUND L. ANDREWS WASHINGTON When an election campaign coincides with both a crisis on Wall Street and soaring home foreclosures across the country, the traditional ideological battles over more government or less government become blurred. Senator Barack Obama and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Democratic candidates for president, claim to have proposed a more activist role for government than either President Bush or the likely Republican pre
  9. A ten year old in your weight class? That's a big arze ten year old. Are you sumo wrestling or something?
  10. I wonder if that holds true for children, though. Not sure because I'm not in the medical field, but I can imagine that physiological differences would change how the body reacts to different sports activities.
  11. An idiot..? sometimes. Flaming? Never. It's Thursday and all. Besides, I had to use someone "safe" for my example. I don't want to get got by the snitch, after all.
  12. You're talking about the Wright sermons here, right? Yes. Most campaign "controversies" in general are just given life by extreme drama queens on both sides. That's what I thought you were saying, but I wanted to make sure. I agree with you.
