Help me out here, folks. I am confused with some liberal thinking, on one side they think football is too dangerous, violent, whatever, and Obamam wouldn't want a son, if he had one, to play. Then, in another breath, we are now going to allow women to fight in the front lines...couldn', no, shouldn't we consider that to be dangerous and a violent circumstance for them? Why is one okay, and the other is not? Do these people even know what they really want??? Would Obama feel comfortable with his daughters going to war?
There are some several aspects to consider with these two issues.

In playing football, we are initially talking about young people, young brains, still forming and at highly susceptible to the high incident of brain injury in a collision sport like football. The science on football in recent years has determined that players are experiencing far more incidents of damage than previously recorded.

First off, in the case of females participating in combat situations, we are talking about adults engaging in the service to their country. Yes it's dangerous, but it's not a game and in my opinion, the higher risk is for a higher purpose. While the physical curve still exists between a male and a female it is not the equivalent to competitive football.

Football is a sport that relies heavily and constantly on speed and power that would put most females at an immediate physical disadvantage.

While in combat, there is always the potential for encountering situations where speed and power may be required, it involves a much wider range of skills and training with weapons and overall survival. It's not like in a football game where the entire emphasis is on speed and power where women would constantly be at a physical disadvantage.

Women with the proper training can be just as lethal as a man perfectly capable of defending themselves but in reality, there's little comparison between a football game and combat.

Requiring Gun Insurance Will Increase Safety
Insuring guns provides a means for financially compensating victims of unjustified gun violence not only families who have lost loved ones, but also non-fatal shooting victims and those who are assaulted with guns.
Requiring gun-owner insurance as a form of gun safety regulation is not a radical change in social policy. It is common for our society to throw the risk on the owner of a potentially harmful commodity. Motor vehicles, for example, must be registered and insured in case their use harms humans or property; and the thrill of driving a high-performance car comes with a higher insurance premium.
States often have insurance requirements for the owners of motorcycles, snowmobiles, boats, exotic wild animals even pit bulls. Owners of establishments that sell alcohol, such as restaurants and bars, are often required to carry insurance for damages caused by intoxicated patrons.

Do you realize that everyone knows that you changed that post and added the sexual molestation aspect to it. Forget about that you are trying portray Rico as the pervert.

Think about it..

1. Those perverted thoughts came from your brain

3. You are slandering and libeling two separate individuals
4. You are cowardly doing all this behind the guise of anonymity

LOL!!
It's just like when they pull their, if you come to the USA, speak English then point at the naturalized citizen requirements while conveniently ignoring the fact that when an immigrant enters lawfully under any kind of visa their is no law requiring them to speak English.
Yet they insist they do and the ironic part is that they want these people to speak English yet they're so bigoted, they'd never talk to these people in the first place.
And we all know that if they're not b*tching about them not speaking English... it'll be about something else.
If they don't try after so many years, or if they JUST DON'T SPEAK IT, TO BE ARROGANT......as some do to hint they don't care to speak English and there's plenty of these (majority) they want to force you to speak spanish to them....I just blow them off too and keep on doing my job. I ignore them and eventually they come around and show signs of TRYING to communicate and start talking to you in english, It's funny....but with me they don't get away with it. I have a job to do and I'm in charge.

There's no question about the requirement that a person needs to have a functional command of the English language to become a citizen.
I've said that several times now.
AL originally said that an immigrant had to be able to speak English before they were allowed to come here in the first place and she was wrong.
She also seems to think that most people go to a technical college to learn English.
She was wrong about that too.
Ok, I see...have a good one.

He don't care and neither do the pubs or dems.. I would kinda like to learn more about the probationary status and what it will entail.. What crimes they commit would send them to immigration court for deportation.. Just have to wait and see and with the backlog I hope they speed up the process..

<quoted text>The .1 percent has to do with the seasonal hires being laid-off. Just how long do you think the Federal Reserve should continue to print 85 billion dollars a month in AN ATTEMPT to stimulate the economy and lower unemployment. That is why the economy looks better. Look up QE3.
The .1% drop as you say is a representative of seasonal jobs ending... so why are you trying to link that with gov't spending?

Moreover... why would you support a policy [reduction in spending] that would tank the economy?

On one hand you want cuts but on another you'll cry about it when the economy drops. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

I'm not sure what your original argument is...

Yes, they both require more than sheer force and speed but in different capacities.

In combat, a female can be trained to maximize her potential to rendering her within the needed limits to survive.

In football where the emphasize is on 90 percent physical contact and strength and speed there is more of a physical curve.

The disparity between one being a sport where you risk injury and one being a combat situations where you risk life is easily distinguished with the fact that serving one's country is a higher purpose and cause than playing some competitive sport.

I love the game of football, but have had my eyes open to the un-forseen dangers present when I played.

My point is, you can teach a woman to shoot a weapon, self defense, any other combat skill you can teach a man. I'm not saying that it's impossible for their physical aspect to become a negative factor in combat but It's not like in football where it would immediately and consistently be a factor and disadvantage throughout the entire competition.

I agree with allowing women to fight on the front lines. I wouldn't want my daughter to go but if it's something she felt compelled to do I would support her and be proud of her.
