Is it just me?

12 posts in this topic

Is it just me, or is it ironic that on this forum, it is o k if my side does it, but not if yours does?

Bill Clinton had numerous affairs and it is none of our business, but McCain had affairs years ago and now it matters.

There is a forum now about oil speculators and a proposed law to control them. One side praises it as, at least they are trying something, they are being proactive. Where was that attitude when one side wanted to try to privatize a small percentage of social security? Wasn't that trying to be proactive also.

There is now disscusion on the board about the second ammendment, and many seem to think that it isn't in danger and it isn't very important, while the fourth ammendment is in danger and it is important. Aren't they both equally important?

I am a pretty conservative person, but I have never voted a straight party ticket. I actually respected Paul Wellstone. I disagreed with him on most things, but I felt he was standing up for what he believed. I felt bad for his family when his funeral service turned in a political rally. The speakers forgot why they were there.

Before you jump on this as liberal bashing, you can flip every example around and have the flip side of the same coin.

I think you need to go back and read my post a little closer wink

I said ALL of the Ammendments in the Bill of Rights are important. If you can find where I said the Second Ammendment is not important I will be a monkey's uncle. My point was that people get worked up over talk of infringing on one of them but didn't appear to give much thought when another right was actually being allowed to be violated. No one of those Ammendments in the Bill of Rights is more important than any of the others.

If you read a little further you will see that I also said I wasn't singling out G.W. There were repubs and dems that voted for the Patriot Act, they should have all been lined up and slapped like Larry, Curly and Moe for that one. I don't care what party someone belongs to, if it is dumb it is dumb on either side of the aisle.

Casey, I wasn't pointing to you individually. My point is that MOST people on here seem to think it is only o. k. if there "side" does it. Like I stated, it is not a one sided issue, it goes both ways.

I somewhat agree with the rationale of your post. But I had to laugh when I saw your statement above. How much time was wasted with hearings, press conferences, and sworn statements with the whole Clinton scandal thing? In the end what did we find out? He was unfaithful and lied about it. Hmm, that never happens in politics. If he had fessed up to it from the beginning, it would have been difused and the issue would have eventually burned out.

But I'm not sure McCain has suffered through 1/100th of the attention that Clinton got for similar issues. Of course it is only July...

You know, part of me hopes BHO gets in just to shut everyone up. We'll see how fast everything plumits then. Bad things is we'll have four years of it and then have to fix it all.

The politicians that want to impeach Bush should focus on this. Much of this debt is held by other countries. I believe at some point in the future will come back to haunt us. It is also devalueing the dollar and contributing to high commodity prices that squeeze us every day. I view this as a "high crime" and possible treason. Oh wait, these same folks also did their share on running up this deficit.

My bad, I thought you were including me in the "many" since I spoke to the topic you were citing.

I will agree with you it goes both ways.

    • I see that the morans are still falling for the fake shiat.......   WASHINGTON — D.C. police have identified the man who was arrested after firing a gun inside of a restaurant Sunday afternoon in Northwest D.C. Edgar Maddison Welch, 28, of Salisbury, North Carolina, told police he went to Comet Ping Pong, a popular pizza place in the 5000 block of Connecticut Avenue Northwest, to “self-investigate” the conspiracy theory generated by a fake online news story, D.C. police said in a news release Sunday night. Comet Ping Pong was the target of the conspiracy theory that went viral before the election. The fake story claimed the pizza shop was home to child-trafficking, and that there was a connection between the pizzeria and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Initially, D.C. officials had said that while the motive for the incident was unclear, it wasn’t likely tied to the fake news story. At around 3 p.m., police responded to reports of a man with a firearm at Comet Ping Pong. The suspect entered the restaurant and pointed his firearm in the direction of an employee, police said. The employee was able to escape and call police. The suspect had ordered everyone out of the restaurant then fired his assault rifle inside before he was taken into custody. Two firearms were found inside the restaurant and an additional weapon was found inside Welch’s vehicle. Welch was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon (gun), police said. There were no reports of injuries. Police said the area was safe and that the incident had not been a terrorist situation. Comet Ping Pong’s owner, James Alefantis, made a statement late Sunday night after the shooting, denying what he called “malicious and utterly false accusations.” He said that employees were getting the day off Monday, but hoped that operations would resume in a few days. Alefantis added, “I hope that those involved in fanning these flames will take a moment to contemplate what happened here today and to stop right away.”
    • 5 dollar bubbler, 5 dollar cooler and the theft of my wifes hot glue gun for 5 minutes and I have a minnow bucket that keeps them cool in the summer and wont freeze in the winter.  toss in a 94 cent scoop that hangs from a string and that's a price that's hard to beat at the store.
    • It's neat and I love looking at stuff like the Geniejar but it seems they are solving a problem I never had.
    • I've used the cheap vinyl fly line too but always get the coil effect unless you weight it fairly heavily.That can make you a lot further off the bottom than you think when you use the weight to set them. It coil even changes the depth if you set them with a flasher. I tried the new Suffix tip up line, they have braided and vinyl, and the vinyl was limper than my usual stuff but the braided was a real hook magnet. It's so thin if you break a strand or two you've lost 1/2 your strength it would seem. Is this all we have to think about? Come on Ice! 
    • How about "Minions Cheer for Crony Capitalism"?.....  
    • You should be able to find a way better price than that.  We had a 21' done for under $1k, and a 24' done for $1100.  
    • I'm a huge fan of fly line.  Remarkable hard to tangle or knot.  
    • I think the money is front loaded but the cap hit lives with us forever. The NHL also penalized these kinds of contracts in the last CBA so we are likely stuck with it no matter what happens, not sure on the details but I'm sure we will hear all about them if things get bad. We should get some cap relief when we lose a guy to Vegas this off season so sort term we aren't too bad. Koivu off the books after next season, Pommers the season after next unless we buy him out which is possible. The Suter and Parise contracts are going to hurt us in the long run no matter what we do, it's just something we 100% had to do at the time to become a competitive team.

      It's just too bad that Pommers and an injured Parise had their production tail off because some of the younger guys are having nice seasons and for us to have any kind of a chance at a cup we needed everyone clicking at once. Not that it can't still happen but it just makes it harder for us.
    • Excuse me, I meant fly fishing line, not backing.  I use a level taper (uniform diameter throughout entire line length).  I don't know what the coating is but it is fairly intermediate sinking rate.  Just don't get floating line.
