I voted for McCain. Fellow Vietnam vet. POW for years. Locked in a cage. Poked with sticks. Tortured and beaten often. Malnutrition. No medical care. Psychological torture. Stop me anytime...
i wanted to, but then he picked Palin. i couldn't in any clear conscience vote for that ticket. his republican party, in it's current iteration, was tough enough to swallow.

In picking Sarah Palin, whom I have never liked nor supported in any way whatsoever, it makes me question McCain's judgment and wonder WHAT THE HELL WAS HE THINKING ?!

If he was so intent on putting a woman on the ticket, there were far more better-prepared women that he could've picked.(A Republican female Senator perhaps ?)

(I have read that Condi Rice was actively campaigning for the VEEP spot behind the scenes, but that she was passed over because he was afraid too many people believe, rightly or wrongly, that she's a lesbian.)

SO WHAT THE HELL WAS HE THINKING WHE HE PICKED THAT DUMBBELL SARAH PALIN ?!

(And I didn't vote for McCain in the POTUS election).

To society, I agree. But the planet doesn't really give a sh!t about religion. Remember, I'm a geologist (without capitol for no reason) so I know.

Funny stuff!

i never heard about Condi, and she probably wanted to actually sleep after 8 years. she was also to close to Bush. that taint had to be run from hard and fast and it seems McCain couldn't run that fast or far...(no-one probably could have...)

Wonder why she never fixed that gap toothed grin? Could certainly afford it. Good dental plan.

Funny.

Really, Bush inherited a Jimmy Carter economy......and I thought Bush inherited a surplus instead of a deficit...which meant that this Country was doing fine, not in a recession, like when Obama took over.....and how do you think things would be under McCain right about now? Better? or the same? Maybe even worse? When a Country was in a mess like it was after Bush.....it will take some time to get back on track.....maybe 8 to 10 years........so, sorry, the President is moving this Country in the right direction.......just at a slow pace!!!
The day 9/11 happened, I was headed to work, and then when I go to work and turned on my computer and saw what had happened......it's all I could do not to want to go after those who were responsible......later, I sort of found out who was responsible and it showed by the countless violations to our Freedoms and to our Constitution.......and many folks were ready to do to the Muslim-Americans, what many DID DO to the Japanese-Americans after Pearl Harbor.......and that wasn't right either!!!
DON'T EVER QUESTION MY PATRIOTISM TO THIS COUNTRY.....MY colors DON'T run!!!
Thank you for showing us your grasp of patriotism and politics? Go back to your civics book, read and understand? Have you ever studied Islam the religion? Do so and get back to us? I never did question your patriotism, that's your nevermind... Also folks were not ready to do anything to Americans, they aren't Muslim-Americans they are Americans? Just as Blacks aren't African-Americans, they are Americans. This hyphenated stuff is crap? It's a play on words, Jesse(Jackass)Jackson & Jesse Jackson JR love to hang their fedoras around??

Sorry, I don't need to study the Islam religion to know that NOT all Muslim-Americans were at fault.....just like not ALL Japanese-Americans were at fault for the attack on Pearl harbor......but yet ALL got blamed for it.....THAT WAS WRONG THEN, and it's just as wrong now!!!

I understand both Patriotism and Politics and I've defended this Country, have you? I've take enough Political Science classes as well as Civic classes.....and I'm sorry you don't get it!!!

As for your BS about hyphenated Americans.....well, that is how they are referred as and it matters not whether you agree with it.

Again, my COLORS don't run and discrimination needs to stop!!!

When did you defend this country?? Doesn't matter, has no bearing on religion. All Muslims are taught in their religion to reject and kill the infidel. An infidel is anyone who doesn't believe in Allah. BS about hyphenated Americans, when did they begin to be hyphenated Americans? Who really gives a rip but you? Americans are Americans. Hyphenated Americans discriminate, that's why they hyphenate their names? Gee Whiz for a veteran you surely aren't versed in American history. Give it up little girl your history belies you...

When I served......it's called defending this Country from all enemies foreign and domestic!!!

Sorry, but what they are taught and what they do, is not the same thing......many Christians are taught that Homosexuality is wrong, but some have gone out and killed them all in the name of their God, not right, illegal and they face the consequences of their actions.

Did all Japanese-Americans harm this Country the day Pearl Harbor was attacked? If not, why did they end up in the camps, losing their freedom and considered Terrorists? How long has this Country been paying for that error?

I see you are angry towards others and you have a right to be.....but what if your anger is pointed at the wrong people? What if the President at the time allowed our Country to be harmed in order to seek revenge on a Country he would not have been able to under normal circumstances?

If I were you.....I'd educate myself on what is more plausible that what you have been told!!!

Oh and don't placate me.....I'm far from being a little girl!!!

That's not an accurate characterization of Islam. I still don't like it.

Christendom's hands are far from clean along those lines.

Actually, fucwit, both "crimes" and "misdemeanors" are legal terms that have fairly concise definitions. Incompetence is not an impeachable offense.

Clinton got impeached for lying under oath about getting a bj, not for the sex act itself.

The President can be impeached for "high crimes and misdemeanors". Nowhere in Constitution does there exist a solid definition as to what that means. So Congress gets to make up its mind as to what is an impeachable offense. So yes, it is entirely possible for a President to be impeached for incompetence.
Hell Clinton got impeached for getting a blow job. I didn't agree with that at all!

You don't get an MS without having a field of concentration. Unless yours was in the noted fields, you're not an expert in the field.

Even though I can spell and have a M.S. geology with 33 years experience I know less than her about oil because I am not an Obama supporter. I get it now!

I really don't give a sh!t. If you want to believe that the young woman who cannot spell or even construct a sentence and has "been to college recently" knows more about oil than a geologist with 33 years experience fine with me jackass!

One wonders at your motivation though. Is it maybe because you like her politics better than mine? That's a very stupid way to be.

What a dope!

And Obama can be impeached for the same. I never said impeach him though. Some one else did. I just agreed it's possible. And it is.

All I want is answers. If you blindly accept his rather lame explanations, fine! It's a stupid way to be though.

What a biased dope!

Of course, all Muslims are NOT taught to kill anyone who is not Muslim, and more that the Bible teaches all Christians to stone disrespectful children, and conquer all enemies of God, slaughtering every man, woman, and wailing baby, leaving no living things within the walls of sacked towns.

It always depends on what you take from the teaching, and not the written words of it.

The God of the Old testament was a vicious, vindictive, and cruel creature, who extorted his followers to do terrible acts. Slaughtering babies, enslaving virgins. Lovely stuff, all in the name of Yahweh.

That is the deal when humans invent gods. The gods end up with human traits like the ones you mentioned.

Silly religions...
