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.

    • Perhaps you are associating peanut butter with sweet things, like cookies or peanut butter cups.   But peanuts aren't sweet and can work in savory things as well.   Asian food seems to do that with peanuts a lot, just as an example.   African food also. 
    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.
    • nw wisconee private marsh
    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
