“The much more dangerous precedent was a pre-emptive war or as intelligent people would call it, initiating a war for no reason.”

“Also, sending troops into harms way for no good reason is 1 definition of treason.”

“"Pre-emptive war"! Love it. You know, if our military would start pre-emptive wars all around the world without provocation, we could simply wipe out ALL other nations and then there would be NO doubt that We're Number One!”
“Al Qaida were the terrorists. The Taliban, however despicable, were the ruling party of Afghanistan, which we invaded. They are nothing but Prisoners of War, a war which is ending shortly. To call them terrorists is inaccurate.”
“All I was doing was trying to make a joke about his complaining about the amount of taxes he pays. The fact is that the main reason people like him are making so much money is because the top rate isn't 70% anymore like it was up until 1980.
The top rate is less than 40% and every time it's been lower the economy has suffered. From 87-92 the economy wasn't so good and from 2002-2012 it wasn't that good either. The top rates in those years went from 37.5 to 28 to 31% and the top fate was 36% from 2002-2012.
Mickelson was even clueless as to what he was paying since he doesn't do his own taxes and doesn't realize that his state and foreign taxes are deducted from his income for his federal taxes.
Anybody making millions of dollars a year complaining about their taxes is a friggin crybaby in my book.”

“Thanks for the clarification. When I initially read your post, I thought you were referring to him crying after winning the Masters, and I was going to challenge your post. I'm glad I read the entire thread before do that, as I entire agree with your point.”
“Why Bradley? Do you know Phil personally or do you just hate him because he has made something of his life?”

“I am disappointed in Phil if what he is being accused of is true. And, yes.... He must pay the price. But you.. Are equally as disappointing. Your insult falls short in my eyes. He is a decent husband and father.”
“113,880 hours is 13 years of 24/7. Let's say school is 8 hours per day that brings it down to 37,960 hours. Summer vacation and vacation days are at least a total of 3 months so that brings it down to 28,470 hours or 1186 days or 3.25 full years.”

“Good point. And school, of corse, is NOT 8 hours a day. It's about 5-6 in most places. And should we give credit for lunch, recess and study hall?”
“I was in the adult film business part time from 78-82 when I started running a video company for an independent producer director.
He told every new girl the same thing. Are you sure you want to do this because everybody you know or your future children can find out about this. It's 30 years later and it's impossible to keep it a secret.
Every producer, director or agent should make sure these girls realize this. I also think that 18 is too young for a girl to make a life changing decision like this.
Finally the people bullying her are lowlifes.”

“I think every girl (or guy) should get that speech, but I don't think it would make a difference. I used to be in the gaming business. I used to feel good about telling people that if they had an addictive personality, put their money back in their pockets and leave. No one ever left.”
“If they talked about the facts and science the anchors would have to know something. This way they're just in the middle of an argument between a scientist and a paid liar and can contribute their 2 cents.”

“A horrible day in American and human history made worse by just about every decision our government has made in response to it.
I feel bad for all the people that lost love ones but I'm so tired of them speaking out over and over again about something they don't like. Three thousand dead leaves a lot of family members with lot's of opinions. Not one of those family members opinions is worth more than any others. No matter what the press is going to find someone that's willing to complain, be outraged and set off some sort of debate.”
“What's most upsetting about this type of argument is people like Ken Langone have benefited tremendously from government actions and policies starting the last 70's regarding free trade, less regulation and much lower taxes. They ignore all the damage it's done to the majority of the country.
All the people that he's complaining about want to do is role some of that back.”

After the first billion of personal wealth, what exactly do you spend the second billion on.”
“We need 100% decriminalization of marijuana possession in this country to start changing the minds of people like Leonhart. They should also not allow companies or anyone else to drug test for marijuana since it stays in your body for so long.
If someone's getting high before or during work that's one thing but casual use should be treated like social drinking.”
