    "I see the White House doesn`t remember 9/11."

    -It`s not that they don`t remember 9/11, they just want to make sure no one forgets it.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Las Vegas Trip: April 5-7

    I have NEVER heard anyone say "they don`t know what they`re going to do in Vegas." Generally its more along the lines of "I don`t know how I`m going to stay away for 3 days straight in Vegas."

    IN RESPONSE TO: South Park

    Nebu, you`re assuming Terrorists were actaully planning another attack. After 9/11 all the airline companies stepped up security and monitoring, and honestly there wasn`t any other viable avenue of attack. Even if Bush did absolutely nothing it would have been hard to stage another attack.

    That`s like giving Bush credit for preventing Nuclear war, there`s just no way to know what would happen if he hadn`t done anything.

    I just think credit should be reserved for clear accomplishments, like I Reagen clearly was instrumental in bringing down the Soviet Union. That is a clear accomplishment supported by facts.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Barack Obama wins presidential election

    My apologies, those 14 points I stated were very equivocal. If Nebu is willing to turn this topic into a post I will clearly define the 14 points and support them with cited sources.

    It is not difficult to disperse blame on a great many things, however, there are a few things that are difficult to dispute. Namely the fact that the majority of the public is dissillusioned with Bush and his well-meaning but harmful policies. That fact was manifest by the land-slide victory last night.

    Bush had an oppurtunity after 9/11 to drive this country in any direction he chose, alas that direction is one which ~70% of the public disagrees with based on the polls.

    If you wish to be dogmatic and blindly support a man who is in the lowest echelons of presidential performance then so be it - it is your right. However, do not chuck inane, unsupported arguments you made up on the spot to support your position. Example:

    7. Politicizing the Justice Department
    "In politics, everything is politicized. Starving children? Wither on the vine?"

    DeuceOfSpades, with all due respect, I can not even begin to explain to you how absurd that comment is.

    "The American people should always respect their president."

    Wrong. Horribly, wrong. The primary intent of the Bill of Rights (i.e. Freedom of Speech, Right to Bear Arms) is to insure the populace can rise up against tyranny, against injustice, against the violation of the truths upon which the country is based.

    Scrutinizing and questioning one`s government is not only justified it is the civic duty of each and every citizen. Do not forget this is a government of the people, by the people, for the people! The President is your leader and your employee. He is your equal, the moment you forget is the moment the Constituion dies.

    The founding fathers strived to create an egalitarian society, it had its flaws in the beginning (e.g. slavery) but for the most part if you were a citizen you were equal under the law. The President deserves no more respect than your boss at work. If he is abusing his power and killing the company you organize a strike.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Barack Obama wins presidential election

    Charkoth based upon your responses it appears the President of the United States has very little power; he is nothing more than a puppet.

    Essentially everyone in the country from the CIA to the city of New Orleans dropped the ball. It`s all clear now: Bush was simply trying to clean up the mess WE created. Thank you for clearing that up.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Barack Obama wins presidential election

    Charkoth please explain your support for Bush by explaining whether he has any involvement with the following and your own opinion on the legality/morality of the following:

    1. Bush Doctrine
    2. Misleading Information on Iraqi WMDs
    3. NSA Wiretapping
    4. Violation of Habeus Corpus
    5. Violation of Geneva Convention (Gitmo)
    6. Deregulation of money markets
    7. Politicizing the Justice Department
    8. Failure of "No Child Left Behind"
    9. Failure of Emergency Relief after Katrina
    10. Failure of negotiations with Iran and North Korea on Nuclear development
    11. Decaying infrastructure
    12. Increased dependence on foreign oil
    13. $1 trillion annual trade deficit
    14. $10 trillion national debt

    -I admit I may have obtained bias or distorted information on certain topics, but perhaps you can enlighten me on how these issues are irrelevant or how Bush is not responsible for them.

    "I`d take another 8 years of Bush over either of those two any day." -Chakroth

    -I am now convinced you are just a liberal in disguise: A satirical take on "Rovian Politics". The last threads of support that remain for President Bush are extracted from southern red-necks and the highest echelons of the upper class. As I, perhaps foolishly, presume you do not belong to either of those two groups I must conclude you are a liberal satirizing your avatar.

    I`ll just say this:

    Nebu please archive this thread and post it link to it on the front page. In four years, when Obama is re-elected by a landslide I will gleefully anticipate a response by Charkoth and his brethren.

    Charkoth

    "I`m pretty sure if McCain dies, it won`t be from a heartattack"

    The ignorance of that statement encapsulates - quite well - who you are Charkoth.




    Posted: October 21st, 2008 @ 7:39PM
    IN RESPONSE TO: Money analogy.

    @Charkoth

    "heartbeat away from the presidency"

    -Let me break down the significance of this statement so that it may stand a chance at penetrating your bombastic rhetoric and the multiple layers of arrogance that sabotage your common sense.

    -The choice of the term "heartbeat" contains an implication, one which did not apply to many presidential candidates of the past, that is, of course, the high probability that McCain may die, from natural causes, in office.

    -What warrants the use of the term "heartbeat"? First, McCain has had a recurring battle with skin cancer; if he has to be treated while in office - Palin takes his job.

    -Furthermore, at age 72 McCain is very susceptible to dementia. How many people in their mid-70`s do you know that do not suffer from some kind of chronic ailment that inhibits their mental function. Personally, I know none. If he begins to lose his mental capacity while in office, or even - dare i say - wartime, it may pose a serious existential treat to this country to have Palin take up the role of Commander and Chief in a war with Iran or North Korea.

    -The fact of the matter is McCain is a senior citizen with a history of medical ailments that all put him at a much higher risk of death or being incapacitated, than a majority of past presidential candidates. That being said, Sarah Palin is a "72 year old`s heartbeat" away from being President, insofar as McCain poses a much higher than normal risk of natural death for a Presidential candidate. And if for you, the reality of Sarah Palin being President is not akin to a perennial nightmare I pity your dogmatic ignorance.

    -You see Charkoth, it is your arrogance, your self-proclaimed intellectualism that is flawed and bias, not the liberals, and not the simple figurative language you are unable to decipher.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Democrats Still Aren't Serious About Drilling

    "Do you people live in a shell? If you haven`t noticed in the past 2 weeks 2 hurricanes have hit Louisiana and Texas. "

    Charkoth, I gave you the benefit of the doubt and thought your posts were sardonic, and a satire of republican chatter.

    -Facts:


    1)Crude Oil Prices dropped from ~$145 on 7/1/08 to ~$105 on 9/1/08.

    2)National gas average went ~$3.85 per gallon on 7/1/08 to ~$3.70 per gallon on 9/1/08.

    3)Hurricane Ike started causing damage & shutdowns September 6th.
    LINK


    ---Analysis:

    Facts 1 & 2 occurred before the Hurricane and the figures are unaffected by the refinery shut-downs. Crude Oil prices dropped about $40 from July to September, whereas the national gas average dropped from $3.85 to $3.70 in the same time period. That is known as "PRICE GOUGING." This has nothing to do with the hurricane, the oil companies, and yes, the gas station owners both kept the prices artificially high for increased revenue. It is not illegal it is how the economy works.

    -Hurricane Ike has been affecting oil prices for less than 2 weeks, this reluctance for the gas prices to drop has been going on much longer.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Democrats Still Aren't Serious About Drilling

    "Can someone please explain to me why when oil was ~$145/barrel gas was about $4.30/gal (depending on where you live) and now that oil is less than $100/barrel, gas is still around $4.10/gal?"


    - The phenomenon you are describing is known as "price-gouging." What happens is that the price of gas goes down but the gas companies and/or gas station owners hold off on lowering the prices to make more profit. I`m sure you noticed the price per gallon has a huge difference even in the same area now. Some places charge $4.50 others $3.50, its usually the gas station owner "gouging" you up the a$$. Here`s a scenario:

    ----Oil Cost: $140 -> Gas Company/Station Pays: $4.90/gal -> Your cost: $5.00/gal (Difference: $0.10)

    ----Global financial crisis -> Oil producers shit their pants and lower the cost of oil.

    ----Oil cost: $92 -> Gas Company/Station Pays: $3.25/gal -> Your cost: $4.25/gal (Difference: $1.00)
