In the nuclear "DEFCON" game we were non-players.
I don't know what rock you were hiding behind.

If you can't remember the USA going to DefConIII...

I said we have gone twice- I say twice in that there were two real occasions, not the pretend reason Bush came up with, should you care to look it up.

Two times when the USA and the USSR pulled the pins and made ready to use them.

Your antisemitism is showing ... again.
I am making this comment without knowing the context of the overall conversation - but I don't think it's antisemitic to suggest that Israel's nuclear cache should be inspected once in a while.

And I asked to go to Vietnam and be assigned to a river boat because I thought they were cool but since I weighed less than 150 pounds and since I scored in the top one percent of foreign language aptitude in boot I went somewhere else.

But I guess it is okay when you ding my service to this country and cry about it when I do it to you.

Liars always have to cite their soldier credentials. Its sad that they think this will suddently magically make all their lies about god into truths all of the sudden.

Slowly now ... Obama is set on making this (USA) a Third World country. I did not say it is currently a Third World country.
I beg to differ. It is not President Obama who wishes to make this a third world country, but those who think only their religious beliefs should run the country who are trying to do so. Those beliefs exclude higher education as a goal to be admired. They would rather have a Bible rule than good sense.

Please get your facts straight before looking so foolish.

You're a liar, as well as being unable to understand a conversation.

That's just it.
You have to respect someone before you value their opinion and the rantings of a deranged obsessive like barefoot, engender no respect whatsoever.
Last time I looked he was averaging approximately 76 posts a day. No doubt he'll be trying to push that average up to 80.
I personally don't care how many posts someone makes. But barefooty is making his mark posting only the same remarks for months now. It's old, tired and should be buried.

Not really...Sterilization, contraceptive use and abortion, PLANNED PARENTHOOD, will keep the U.S. from going into savage, third world, breeding mode where women with capacious vaginal dimensions and zero education plus low IQs squirt out semen demons, miserable crotch droppings, into the streets...See third world CATHOLIC countries...Obama is absolutely right in the support of Planned Parenthood but he does not go far enough in encouraging a culture of contraception, sterilization and abortion....and that's where my LIBERTARIAN support ends. Until breeding practices are called into question, all else is white noise. Glory!
So it's all the woman's fault?

If you want people sterilized, start with yourself and the men in your family. It takes two. Women can't have children without men to fertilize their eggs. So if you want people sterilized, start with yourself and the men in your family so that none of the women you have sex with can have a fertilized egg as a result of it. It takes two.

Okay. There were no WMD's. The wars were started to ... enhance Bushes re-election ambitions. Yeah, okay. So why didn't Obama pull our troops when he was elected?
