  1. I see the point that you're making. And you have a point. But I also think that the words apply domestically more or less unchanged. Heck, I don't think applying progressive or conservative to foreign policy actually means anything or has ever meant anything. Our foreign policy has been pretty nutty pretty much since the Cold War. With some exceptions. But on balance, nutty. Your point about the RTP is well founded. The same point about Neocons doesn't even need to be made. Still H was supposed to be this 'realist' and Somalia was completely nutty. If I'm going to talk about con
  2. I am a small p progressive. I think most of our evolution has come from progressives. Lincoln. FDR. Still, Democrats *are* responsible for some massive mistakes like Vietnam. That was Johnson. Yeah, Nixon made it even worse but he inherited something that was already stupid bad. But conservatives are responsible for our epic mistakes, the colossally big ones (although Vietnam was pretty big) and they have nothing on balance. But I can't think of any conservative accomplishments and modern conservatives are just plain nuts. They have this mythology like winning the Cold War etc. Yawn. I thi
  3. Tom, do you clean and lubricate your tool regularly?
  4. That MOB pole tube is iconic to the 37 and the 27. But some tricked out 27s (Peaches) have done away with it. Alsberg was actually an Alameda designer; he worked for Gary Mull as did Jim Antrim. The 27s+37s were built in SC by the Alsbergs.
  5. I think Tom's post was in the original and now deceased Charleston race thread. Period. Still the name of the federal court decision would suffice.
  6. Welcome to civilization, I mean, California. We passed Prop 209 way back in 1996.
  7. Why are they inconvenient to you? Now this is the essence of Fakebertarianism. Bravo for distilling it down to its meconium.
  8. I don't know. But it is an interesting question.
  9. This US Attorney needs to go through a wood chipper.
  10. Deep deep sixed. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=what+is+the+depth+of+the+north+arabian+sea
  11. Damn and this from the most transparent administration ever. http://politicalwire.com/2015/05/22/u-s-wont-release-bin-ladens-porn-stash/
  12. Well, the gunwalking did get started by a Republican, right?
  13. And what a messenger he is. Yes, I'm a party animal (don't think I've denied this) as is your messenger. You on the other other hand believe and somewhat uncritically.
  14. The towel headed one promised a third volume on Fast and Furious. He promised.
  15. I think when Tom passes, and may he live a long life, that he'll be reincarnated as a gun corporation.
  16. I apologize folks. Tom seems to be having an eruption. He couldn't handle the Nugent questions.
  17. There is no thread but this thread. Happy Jack is the messenger of this thread.
  18. Was that an opinion poll or a fact poll? If it was a fact poll then you should label it as a fact poll rather than an opinion poll as that can be confusing.
  19. It applies to the press. Mr Clean is press. I'm not sure if he is incorporated. It also applies to the NYTimes. I'm pretty sure they're incorporated.
  20. It's pretty short. You might want to meditate on the bolded text: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Corporations used to have the right to assemble but that got offshored.
  21. Tom, have you read the First Amendment?
