I got out drinking and this thread gets all political? Damn, you need my liberal ass in here to calm the woe is the GOP togetherness ish going on in here...
And whoever said Obama is an LOL, all I can say is "Rick Santorum." He is literally working to bring down the GOP.
You guys should just forfeit the election and pump up Rubio for the next four years...
Idk whether to hit you or cry because toure right.
I hate politics - I hate that we're essentially only given a few choices, none of whom are worthy of office. The problem in Washington is that there will never be accountability for anyone there.
That second part sounds pretty darn good to me.
Moving on - No class on fridays is a wonderful thing.
This could get ugly.
New Orleans Saints face NFL sanctions for offering bounty payments for injuring opponents
"I like your head, it's a good look." - James Franklin, to a bald reporter asking a question.
I'll take Rick Santorum over Obama any day.
Try to fathom the hypocrisy of a Government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured .but not prove they're a citizen
Then I'm not sure what to tell you. Santorum is a horrible candidate, and having somebody that out of touch with reality as the head of state is dangerous.
And don't talk about creeping socialism, please come up with something intelligence.

Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Drinking Nugget nectar. Boom. That's all.
Bolden vs McGloin>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Obama vs Santorum. We, as a country, are more screwed than our offense was last year.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
Never said Santorum wasn't a horrible Candidate, just that he was better then Obama. Why is he out of touch with reality? Because he has morals, believes in God? Prey tell? I happen to not like the reality of what's going on in this country. A lot of people looking for a handout and to bring down achievers instead of pull themsleves up by their bootstraps and work to improve themselves.
Santorum wants to overturn the joke that is Obamacare. WHat a farce Obamacare is. I don't know if Obama flat out lied about the things he said about the program or he just flat out is ignorant about the topic, what he said and what's actually in the bill
Santorum believes in Immigration reform and actually following the law. Obama doesn't
Santorum wants to reign in spending and cut entitlements. So do I. Obama, not so much.
Obama swore an oath to uphold the constitution and law of the land. He has since given direct orders for his departments to ignore laws such as the defense of marriage act. Now, he may not agree with the law and maybe many others do too, that's not the point.
Shall we talk about all those shovel ready jobs and the idiocy of the stimulus?
Would you like me to keep going? There's not a thing Obama has done or stands for that I agree with and think is good for this country.
+1, Sneak. I was about to address the out of touch comment myself. The problem with Obama (and Clinton during his term) is that he truly believes he is smarter than everyone else and knows what is best. But the reality that Obama sees is not the same one that hard working, industrious people that believe in personal responsibility see.
Amen. Personal responsibility
Nothing is wrong with believing in God, or the fact that he has morals, but he is ostracizing a lot of people by talking from his soap bax about Christ.
How is Santorum going to fix the attitudes of the laborforce in America? His own party can't even fully get behind him, how is he supposed to rally people around him? Any plans to fix the unemployment problem? Or should those lazy underachievers just suck it up and shut up until people start hiring again?
I don't agree with Obamacare either, so I don't know what to tell you on that. It was a campaign promise he had to keep if he wanted to get reelected, and he made a ton of concessions to get the bill passed.
Unless they plan on increasing the funding for Department of Immigration, I'm not sure what good it will do. People won't ever stop coming over illegally, and I guess its JMO here, but if its easier to come across legally they won't have to resort to dangerous ways of coming over illegally.
Let the major companies fail, and thousands more become unemployed and a greater share of the market goes to foreign companies. I don't think it will work well because the companies are still run by nimrods who plan quarterly instead of for the long-term.
What about fixing the no child left behind act? Was that bad for the country? What about pushing for a natural gas pipeline from Alaska, potentially lessening dependance on foreign gas supplies?
You can if you want to, but I'd like to know what any Republican plans on doing to fix the problems.
Obama is an extremely intelligent person, he just happened to be extremely naive.
In theory what he's doing could work, its just not practical unless everybody works together and nobody cheats the system. Unfortunately, that will never happen. However it is a campaign promise, arguably his biggest, so it was one he needed to keep.
So I just watched Miracle. That game is easily the one moment in sports history that I wish I could have seen live.
What's everyone else got? Ali/Frazier maybe? Tiger's first Masters? The Babe maybe calling his shot? Jesse Owens telling Hitler to suck it (figuratively, of course)?
(I watched because it's the 50th anniversary of Wilt scoring 100, another worthy choice IMO).
Please tell me you are not saying Obamacare could work in theory.
Tex, take an economics class. Its fundamentally flawed economically. When it was announced even Dem analysts said cost nuetral wasn't going to happen. I have highly liberal profs that all say there's no way its even close to economically nuetral. Its economically flawed, its honest to God the worst piece of public policy that has ever been passed. And worst financially planned since Social Security.
If its not Miracle its the Hank Aaron record breaker for me.
Another great choice.
Side note, for Wilt's anniversary, the Sixers gave every single fan this mounted picture (the brown behind it is not connected) with an individual piece of the court that Wilt scored 100 on. On the back are Wilt's statistics from the game (most impressive being 28/32 from the line, find a big man today who shoots 20/32 and you're in good shape...).
It's probably the single coolest giveaway I've ever seen at a game.

Tex, you're young and you'll figure this out eventually. There are a lot of supposedly "very intelligent" people in the world. I've met lots of them throughout my career. However, just like in sports and pretty much every field, there are very, very few people that are clearly superior than everyone else. Obama is not a genius. He is well-educated. He is driven and he's well-spoken. He is also very arrogant. There are no (or few) imbeciles running around in Washington. The belief that he is "smarter" than everyone else is laughable.
Golf: 1970s St. Andrews, following Doug Sanders the entire tournament. He missed the two foot putt, then went on the next day to one of the greatest playoffs of all time against Jack Nicklaus, where Nicklaus beat Sanders by 1.
Baseball: 2010 ALCS when we struck out A-Rod to get to the WS. Happiest moment of my sports watching career.
Football: The 1953 OU-Texas game, when Oklahoma beat Texas 19-14 to start the 47-game win streak. My great-grandfather was there, it would have been pretty sick to sit next to him.
Basketball: Don't care about basketball.
Soccer: USMNT victory against Spain.
I'm sorry, but the majority of politicians I've met are lacking mentally. They're good at pressing flesh and small-talk, making you feel comfortable, but most aren't very naturally intelligent.
I never said he was smarter than everybody else, just that he isn't a moron like people make him out to be.
Baltimore Colts vs NY Giants in the greatest game ever played.
Penn State over Miami in the Fiesta Bowl.
Game 6 NLCS 2006 Cardinals over Mets. Adam Wainwright striking out Carlos Beltran to end it.
You realize the economy is much worse under Obama, right? His stimulus to make sure unemployment didn't reach 8% went real well.It's clear that Obama is the person who can't fix the labor force especially when all he does is cowtow to the unions who are running jobs out of this country left and right.
Lessen our dependence on foreign oil? You didn't really say that did you? The guy who has shit down drilling, costing thousands of jobs I might add while ignoring a courts ruling at the same time, among other things.He's made us more dependent not less.
Obama doesn't have full support of his party. Not long ago people were clamoring for Hillary to challenge him in the primary.
The biggest threat to education in this country is teachers unions, not no child left behind.
If you think that's what those bailouts were for then I can't help you.
As for immigration Obama could stop telling Holder and Co. to ignore the law. He could also stop going after states that have voted in laws to combat illegal immigration while he does nothing to stop it and even more to condone it. Hell, nobody thinks we can stop illegals from coming over 100% but that doesn't mean we should ignore the problem and let it get worse. Throwing money at the problem isn't the answer easy, theres a few things that could be done to really stop the problem.
I beg to differ.
