    Agreed, Ving and I seem to always be putting words into each other mouths when we argue. Could be some latent desires we have to be married. Vingnir, if you move to Washington we can get hitched. Let me talk to my wife about it first though.

    lol

    Despite what youve heard about non-conservatives, i dont swing that way...

    But i'm not above throwin back a couple rounds/pitchers (of beer) lulz


    On a more serious/officer side of things note, i disagree about moving the news discussion to the debate ring. The news thread should be for a limited amount of discussion on the topics presented.

    The 'issue' we are having right now are the WTF thread, and the Attention thread. Not so much here i think.

    THOSE 2 threads are supposed to be for those less inclined to serious conversation, and those looking for a more 'fun' place to hang out, -an alternative, to this 'sometimes' serious business stuff.

    The topic is being discussed now, at the appropriate officer level.

    I didn't think "it" had a political affiliation anyway... not my swing either but we do argue like old married folk sometimes.

    Edit: At least the liberals are honest about it. The gay conservative politicians just lie about it and get in trouble using airport bathrooms.

    My opinion: 1-2 year detention for the lot if convicted, deportation of the foreign nationals at the end of detention, FBI watch list, for the American citizen.

    FBI watch list for all three, if not convicted. This is not unserious business. its a matter of national security, and public safety. Learn something, feel lucky this is a merciful country stateside, and grow the fuck up.

    First they scare you out of the market, then:

    and as soon as they feel too many people are back in the market it will drop again.

    IMO we're more likely to see a Biden led ticket, most of the time second term VPs end up leading the proceeding bid to hold the presidency. Honestly though unless the political climate does a complete 180 I don't think the republicans stand much of a chance at another presidency. They only have the house due to an astonishing amount of gerrymandering and the GOP is split into three wings that don't really like each other at the end of the day. They're losing traction in every new election as the t-baggers hijack the primary process and force un-electable candidates into the general elections effectively destroying the chances of more fiscally or socially sound conservatives to challenge democrats on the national stage.

    Let me speak for all non-democrats ... I hope Biden is the guy. Unless he is running against a Bush, I never want another Bush in office.
