Sen. Lieberman at the RNC

29 posts in this topic

This is another reason why I believe the McCain/Palin ticket will win. How many registered repubs. showed up to support Obama?? While I don't believe in alot Sen. Lieberman has to say I believe this goes to show even a died in the wool Democrat knows whos going to win!!

//quote//

“When others wanted to retreat in defeat from the field of battle — when Barack Obama was voting to cut off funding for our troops on the ground — John McCain had the courage to stand against the tide of public opinion and support the surge, and because of that, today, our troops are at last beginning to come home, not in failure, but in honor,” he was to say. //quote// (Joe Lieberman)

Maybe you Dems. aren't half bad. Atleast one of you says something worthy of common sense. wink

Yeah, those too. Whether they are on the stage or in the streets, seems like everyone at a national presidential political convention is protesting something. gringrin

Lincoln Chafee, Jim Leach and Jim Whitaker are three Republicans that have given their endorsement to Obama. That is three times as many Republicans supporting Obama than Democrats you have shown to support McCain.

What does that mean for the election, NOTHING!

You can google "democrats for mccain" and "republicans for obama" and see there are groups on both sides supporting the candidate from the opposite party.

I think the term for those guys are "wolves in sheep's clothing."

I believe Senator Lieberman is there for one reason. One Party's candidate for President is willing to keep Fort Iraq in place as long as 100 years. Israel is "safer" with a large American presence on the Ground just the other side of Jordan.

O.K. maybe two reasons. See personal income rank by state for Connecticut, (1st).

O.K. three reasons. He lost the 2006 Connecticut Democratic Primary.

Considering he has an (I) next to his name. He was ostracized from his party.

I would use some not most.

Big Tom: Lieberman's connection to the Israel lobby is well documented. I suspect his support for the Iraq occupation has more to do with the desires of Israel's foreign policy stratigies than with U.S. interests.

While I do not understand the linkage between Israeli neo-cons and a democrat/independent, Lieberman appears to follow their lead.

And let’s not forget the tensions between Israel and Iran. Israel has already stated that if Iran continues with its nuclear program that they will attack Iran. And this is not to mention McCain himself already talking about Iran being a threat to Middle East peace.

Only time will tell, but I'm convinced if McCain wins the election we'll expand this war into Iran.

Ummmmmm......how old are you? This has been said since around 1979. Remember Beirut? Remember a certain embassy being taken over and people being held against their will for quite a long time?

Iran has been a boil on the azz of the world for decades. If they succeed in producing "The Weapon", it'll get real interesting somewhere.

What's different this time is that we already have feet on the ground in that region, it fit's in to he Republican New American Century plan and McCain has already talked about using whatever means possible.

Kidd: add to your analysis that Ms. Palin is in the Christian Zionist crowd and you have a complete picture. She is better than Lieberman in that respect...a stealth zionist. Tim LaHaye and the rest of that crowd will be very happy with her.

Iran better get ready for the invasion.

I agree, but it's the Dems that want their Piggy Banks. How do you get that from Reps when they cut taxes and Dems raise them?

Maybe you got a tax cut. I'm not that wealthy.

GOP has had control of Congress 14 of 16 years and the Presidency 20 of 28 years.

Check out the National Debt and Deficits over this term, show me anything other than patches on the AMT, breaks on Capital Gains and tax rates at the highest levels and I'll be willing to listen...

Seriously, you should consider demanding more "leadership" on fiscal issues and less bull$hit. It's old, it's trite and by far most importantly, it's inaccurate. I see no more from the Democrats either, but then I also don't have to swallow the hypocrital tax and spend and family values horse hockey at every turn either.

I'd vote for a purple transexual for President, Senator or Congress if I thought it would lessen government intrusion into my life and my wallet. Isn't that your definition of conservativism or is it wrapped up in hockey moms or muslims or some other irrelevant smears. sick

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
