Those of us with healthy minds, remember that discussion. Oh my went on & on about STUPID football statistics. Then on & on, some more, actually posting some NFL quarterback passing stats. ROTFL
It got crazier with each post, 1/2 her posts discussed complete passes, incomplete passes & dropped passes. Wow, she & IO run a close race with their constant attempts.
If memory serves correct (I'm not going back looking for the post, certainly not worth the time) the poster you're referencing doesn't know much about passing stats, either...

Talk about apples and oranges. I could be a person that murdered 1000 people but if I say the earth is round, is that a lie? On the other hand I didn't read the article and I don't care what it says. It has nothing to do with factual points of the article that was posted. What does your post have to do with anything? What does it have to do with the price of rice in China? Quit trying to change and reshape the OP. I think you have run out of spin.
Let me try again, Dave. The conservatives are the ones that are trying to protect the lives of innocent little babies, right. Now,(try to follow me here) if someone is murdering innocent little babies, then it seems to me that conservatives would be concerned.....apple or orange.

<quoted text>One other point that I have. Just because someone did not join the U.S. Armed Forces does not make them a coward. They just might not agree with a war, have a mental or physical handicap, or may be in medical college or something like that. They could be the last male member of their family. They could have parents or a loved one that must be taken care of. There are many reasons.
As far as Bush goes, he did serve in the Air National Guard. He could have been called to action. He did join, whatever his reasons were,he joined the guard,and he was a part of our armed forces. Our forces have always been made up of National Guard, Reservist, and Regular forces. He is still a veteran and I respect him for that just as I respect you as being a veteran. No He didn't go to war but not everyone in the U.S. Armed Forces did. Makes no difference in my mind.
When there is a draft to feed our kids into a war, and you support the war and the draft, it's the height if hypocrisy and cowardice to seek deferments to avoid the draft, and the war you support.

Bush used his daddy's money and political pull to avoid the draft, by risking the danger of the Texas Air National Guard, to avoid the Vietnam War, while supporting sending those who couldn't avoid the draft to fight and die in those cursed rice fields and hills.

Cheney supported the Vietnam War, and the draft, while using deferments to avoid being drafted himself, while supporting sending other kids to die.

Romney supported the Vietnam War and the draft that fed our kids to their deaths, while using daddy's money to obtain deferments to sit by the Seine in France.

They are are cowardly, draft dodging, ChickenHawk scumbags.

I understand cowardly draft dodgers avoiding the wars they send me and my family to fight and die in - I don't understand why anyone votes for them.

Let's see, 90% of this post is fact free opinion, and yeah, the first 37 times the Republicans repealed Obamacare they just weren't serious enough.
Ah, but some of us are capable of reading facts, processing them and then using them to form our opinions - which we can then share on public forums.

----'ObamaCare's efforts to expand insurance coverage and bring down costs depend entirely on convincing young people to buy coverage, while the law gives these people every reason not to.
A marketing presentation put together for the administration admits that convincing the young and healthy — who make up 48% of the uninsured — to buy insurance will be difficult, since they "take health for granted" and have a "low motivation to enroll." '

http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/0702...

----'Forty-one percent of the businesses surveyed have frozen hiring because of the health-care law known as Obamacare. And almost one-fifth—19 percent— answered "yes" when asked if they had "reduced the number of employees you have in your business as a specific result of the Affordable Care Act." '
http://www.cnbc.com/id/100825782

-----"And the Employer Mandate is mandatory. The law Congress wrote explicitly commands that this provision takes effect in January 2014. The ACA does not permit the government to grant a reprieve or an extension.
Yet in a blatantly illegal move, the Obama administration is presuming to rewrite the ACA by choosing not to enforce provisions that are causing visible problems. The IRS—which is tasked with enforcing the Employer Mandate—will simply not enforce it until 2015. Every large employer in the country is under the mandate. If they don’t comply, then they are breaking federal law."

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/...

-----"And as more young people do the math, more seem to be deciding the Affordable Care Act isn’t such a good deal for them: Support for a national health-care plan dropped nearly 11% among American college freshmen between 2008 to 2012, with under 63% in favor of it today, down from 70%, according to UCLA’s annual student survey."
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/young-americ...

-----"While the delay announced late on Tuesday is viewed as a setback for the Obama administration as it seeks to implement the law, a look through the political lens shows that Obamacare could become a bigger issue in the 2014 midterms than it was in 2010, the year it passed Congress."
"The timing of the announcement ... seemed to indicate some in the administration wanted to bury the development."

As I scanned the article I became hopeful when I noted the word "arrested" in an article about a War Criminal - but then I saw it was just a $10,000,000.00 photo op for a draft dodging cowardly rich spoiled white boy.
Let's see, Faux Spews published this article THE DAY AFTER the event, the article contains these statements:

The distance was too long for a helicopter ride.(San Diego to the carrier)

the president's aircraft kept its landing gear down after takeoff from San Diego

The president's plane hit the deck at about 150 mph

the end of the approximately 10-minute flight

Thank God the Supreme Court selected the right man for the job, it'd be unbearable if we had some political machine limit our choices every four years.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/2003/05/02/bush-...
...However, the fast pace of the carrier in choppy waters creates a challenge for every pilot who lands onboard. The president's plane hit the deck at about 150 mph and stopped within seconds.

Retired U.S. Navy Capt. Chuck Nash told Fox News he observed that the president's aircraft kept its landing gear down after takeoff from San Diego, and suggested it was left down to make sure there were no difficulties with lowering the gear at the end of the approximately 10-minute flight.

...Navy One carried the president, a former F-102 pilot for the Texas Air National Guard, who sat in the front seat, and two or three other passengers. The distance was too long for a helicopter ride.

Given the PLO's and now Hamas's usual tactic of placing missile launch sites next to hospitals, schools and neighborhoods in a blatant attempt to incur civilian casualties for propaganda purposes when Israel takes the sites out, I think this image is most appropriate.

Goodness, so much to deal with:
1. "showed NO compassion when dropping this bombs on people who didn't have anything to do with their leaders."
Well, as long as we're going back in time, let's look at someone who liked to use the military to distract from problems at home. BILL CLINTON
Clinton and Bosnia -"Leading the world’s most powerful alliance against lonely Serbia, bombing for 78 days from high altitudes to avoid (American military) casualties while killing hundreds or thousands of civilians, and ignoring atrocities by America’s allies didn’t make him into a hero anywhere other than downtown Pristina, where his statue stands." insert mine
http://spectator.org/archives/2013/06/17/the-...
"So we bombed a medicine factory in Khartoum, with only the most ludicrous "evidence" that it was involved in chemical weapons production.
And we bombed "terrorist camps" in Afghanistan. Our intelligence was so bad that two of them turned out to be Pakistani-operated bases -- our allies -- and as for the ones that might have been associated with our enemies ... well, Mr. Bill tipped our hand by withdrawing nonessential U.S. personal from the area before sending the missiles. They had plenty of time to get out of the way."
"A few months later, the House was about to vote on impeachment. And guess what happens? Bill Clinton discovers that there is an emergency in Serbia which requires the bombers to fly yet again."
So our bombers flew. But they had to fly very, very high, because if Bill Clinton is anything, he's an absolute political coward -- he couldn't bear to face the possibility of even one U.S. pilot getting shot down. So our bombs fell from such a "safe" altitude that we were bound to kill civilians willy-nilly."
http://www.ornery.org/essays/2000-10-25-3.htm...
2. We already spend a huge amount of money per child in this country with results that are worsening every year. The educational system is broken, but Dems are so beholden to the teachers unions and the bureaucracy of the Dept of Education that any attempt to actually improve our schools is met with a stone wall of special interests who care more about their turf than about our children. Just compare what we spend vs our results with the rest of the world.
http://rossieronline.usc.edu/u-s-education-ve...
3. "More people killed in the name of religion that can be counted."
That is debatable, but if we want to look at the 20th century we have an absolute "winner" in who can claim the most number of deaths in the name of an ideology: Communism
USSR: estimates range from 20-32 million (some have gone as high as 60 million)
China: estimated at 40-65 million
Cambodia: 2,000,000

You forgot to ask him if it was done humanely.

Yeah, you advanced the passing analogy while completely ignoring the Compromise figure, relegating it to an incomplete pass when pressed. Then one of the other brainiacs spewed that any QB with a 65% completion record would not stay in the NFL for more than a season, that little factoid (pulled out of their butt) was shredded by looking at the actual Stats for NFL QBs.

So, yeah Thanks for Playing.

This what I have personally observed. The kids that had enough money went to college and not to war. They were either lucky or smarter than the poor guys that returned from war. Those college kids had a good education and had good jobs while the returning vets had mental and physical injuries to deal with. They had also lost several years from their life which would never be made up.
The average citizen that has never served in war time will never know the feeling that most war time vets have and the feelings to their comrade veterans.
I have little to no respect for Cheney and his deferments as far as I know he just didn't want to take the time and didn't want to go.
I do still see Bush at least going into service for his country even though he did not go to actual war. I look on him no differently than all the other reservists and guardsmen that were not actively engaged in actual warfare at that time. I still respect their duty and time given to their country.
