Topic: Bush retroactively pardoning himself
Replies: 5
Views: 1114

Bush doesn't have to be tried by some World Court for war crimes. The thing about the United States is it takes its own treaty obligations very seriously, at least it used to. When a friendly administration comes in, a prosecutor like Patrick Fitzgerald might make a case against them. It would proba...

managed to put the most powerful military in the world to shame by failing to meet the 'Two fronts' standard of the Pentagon, Can you elaborate on this "two fronts" standard? Is there an actual long standing foreign policy about not opening a war on two fronts, or is it a lot more subtle with diplo...

I'm sure I will be punished for giving you the benefit of the doubt in subsequent posts.

You pulled the "did you really think I meant" bullshit on me, and you were the one who said this ? Of course a teenager can dress however he wants, within the limits of the law and what his parents allow, on his own time. How about I invoke DR6 on you asshole, and ask you to show where I said a teen...

Qualifications my ass . If you are looking for a legalistic discussion about whether teenagers can wear what they want, then there is nothing to talk about RI.

Anyway, let's get to the heart of the matter: what does it mean "you can wear what you want?" Mike seems to think that means, you can wear whatever you want without consequences. Same as me. RI and Zac seem to want to divorce the consequences of clothing with the choice. Under a microscope, no, you ...

Have you ever actually worked with teenagers? Almost all of them are perfectly capable of grapsing the "nuance" of "You can wear what you want sometimes, but not others". When a kid dresses inapproppriately for a job interview, almost always one of these: 1. He was never taught what constitutes app...

Wow well, that utterly destroys every conservotard fantasy. Let us count the ways. "The surge worked."

It was a lot more retarded than that Shroom Man. It was something along the lines of "the deaths will be a footnote" or "fine print in history" or something... classic Bush.

I don't see how you're paying so goddamn little for your student loans. Either you signed in on a fixed interest up the ass, or your loan is incredibly small compared to some others.

Here's the problem Zac. They can't dress how they want. Teenagers don't like being lied to, and if they find out you've been sugar coating or see white lies there's hell to pay. Better to tell them, no they can't dress how they want, not if they want a career and a future. If they whine, bring up sp...

I can imagine the attack ads now. But Republicans will.

Rice?

Rice has gone up 60% in the past month. There was fearmongering about a rice shortage in Thailand for a few days due to the price surge.
