  1. Conservatives having loud complaints, but no real solutions? Get outta here.. Why I never...
  2. I agree. PETA is actually going to end up being the best thing that happened to Vick. They are going to go way overboard (like they always do) and eventually turn him into a sympathetic figure...
  3. Yeah I love that speech also. Never stops being relevant. Belated HBD to one of my heroes...
  4. Yeah he is a reach. Most mocks have him going at #8 to the Knicks now but we really won't know anything until the personal workouts and measurements are done. But with the NBA one or two suprise picks can screw everything up and cause a couple of lottery picks to fall. I'd take Lawson over Teague in a heartbeat if they are both available. I think Flynn would fit our system the best and would love to see him fall to 19. A lot of mocks have us taking BJ Mullens the 7 foot 275 lb potential stiff out of Ohio St. that should have stayed atleast another year.
  5. Looks like we are locked in at the 19th pick (barring a trade) which can be a sweet spot in the draft where you can potentially get a steal.. Point guard and Center are going to obviously be our biggest needs..This draft seems to be a lot deeper at PG than almost any other position. Unrealistic pick- Ricky Rubio, Brandon Jennings Longshot pick- Tyreke Evans, Jrue Holiday, Stephen Curry, Eric Maynor Likely available pick- Jonny Flynn, Tywon Lawson, Terrence Williams, Jeff Teague
  6. Jessica Biel because she's a bad azz P.A.W.G. that I want to fornicate with.
  7. McDonalds throws away enough edible food on a daily basis to feed the entire island of Haiti. If you steal from them you're actually doing them a favor because they don't have to bother with the costs and energy of trashing it themselves.
  8. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090519/...91cmNlZGVtbw-- President Barack Obama's allies in the Senate will not provide funds to close the Guantanamo Bay prison until the administration comes up with a satisfactory plan for transferring the detainees there, a top Democrat said Tuesday. Sen. Diick Durbin of Illinois said Obama's plan to close Guantanamo is not dead — only that the funding will have to wait until the administration devises an acceptable plan to handle the closure and transfer the detainees. Obama has promised to close the military prison by January. "The administration has not come up with a plan at this point," said Durbin, who is the whip, or No. 2 Democrat in the Senate. He added that Democrats are likely to address the issue on later legislation. "I think Guantanamo should be closed and we have to wait for the president's direction on what happens to the detainees." With debate looming on Obama's spending request to cover military and diplomatic operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, says Democrats will deny the Pentagon and Justice Department $80 million to relocate Guantanamo's 240 detainees. The administration has yet to develop a plan for what to do with the detainees, and Obama's promise to close the facility is facing strong GOP opposition. It appears to be a tactical retreat. Once the administration develops a plan to close the facility, congressional Democrats are likely to revisit the topic, provided they are satisfied there are adequate safeguards. Explaining the reversal, Durbin said: "The feeling was at this point we were defending the unknown. We were being asked to defend a plan that hasn't been announced. And the administration said, 'Understood. Give us time to put together that plan and we'll come to you in the next appropriations bill.'"
  9. http://hotair.com/archives/2009/05/19/crac...y-barack-obama/ I bet this is 1 billion dollars in the budget that conservatives won't complain about being piled on the backs of their grandchildren lol.. If Barry keeps this up then all the "he's the most radically liberal politician ever" complaints won't hold any weight.
  10. I agree. But if you torturing someone prevented an attack that saved thousands of lives in my community, I'll throw a ticker tape parade for you when you're released from prison...I'm not going to pretend that you are no better than the people that wanted to attack us...(which is something that people on the far left foolishly do).... It's all about context... I know it's just a movie but I'll use this as an example. In A Time To Kill did Samuel L. Jackson's character break the law and deserve to be punished? Yes.. Was he just as bad, as the men he killed and did he lower himself to their level? No...
  11. It teaches mark azz bustas not to step on my shoes without apologizing....
  12. True. They had a good thing going for them (in theory) and instead of going with complete denial they decided to change the rules halfway through the game.Taking away the fact they broke the law, they should be prosecuted for arrogance and stupidity alone I guess...But in their defense (can't believe I'm defending this administration) they knew they had screwed up by ignoring the pre 9-11 memos and they knew the American people were out for blood. So using their logic at the time they probably felt they could get away with it (having people like Nancy Pelosi co-signing them only probably added to their confidence).... I personally think we should just all move on... I know I'm in the minority on my side with that opinion but it's just a gut feeling I have..Nothing good will come out of releasing photos of abuse or prosecuting these people. I feel like if we just are more discreet about things going forward things will eventually get back to "normal"... People always pose the question "Do we want to live in a country that tortures"? My feeling is we already have been our entires lives. now. Do we want to live in a country that has as many enemies as we do and doesn't torture?
  13. For me it depends on the circumstances. But make no mistake, it is a cruel and evil thing to do (even to the worst in our society). Just don't sugarcoat it and call it something that it's not.....
  14. I see a constant them that suggest people actually believe that......... 1.Torture only came into practice after Bush came into office.. 2. Waterboarding is the worst thing that we have done to obtain information. Let's alll act like adults for a moment...
  15. So you think it's our "morals" that have kept us safe for the past 200 years? Oh wow.....
  16. Didn't we fight a war over 200 years ago so we wouldn't have to give a **** what they do over there?
  17. Having said that, when you are caught red handed, you do have to police yourselves if you want to hold on to that false sense of moral highground...I'm of the attitude that if you want to police the world you have to maintain a sense of rightousness just for the sake of appearence if not for anything else. It's like we know a lot of cops are dirty, steal money, extort criminals use brutal and excessive force etc.. But as long as they don't get caught most people are willing to turn their heads. Once you get exposed you have no excuse not to punish the officers in question...Most Americans don't want to really see how the hotdog is made they just want to serve it on a bun at their kids birthday party...
  18. Thank you. It all goes back to the false romantic idea that this country was founded and built on us maintaining sometype of moral high ground. Which in itself is total bullshyt .... When I hear people make statements like "We can't lower ourselves to the terrorists level" that in itself lets me know that they are in denial about how we really have built and maintained our super power status...
  19. Would you trust a Keith Olbermann source that is confirmed by the New York Times? Would you trust a Sean Hannity post that is confirmed by the New York Post? Or do you have to find two sources that have what you feel to be conflicting agendas (because agenda free news doesn't exist) before you give a story credibility?
