The Wrong Enemy - ShortyRob
Found this an interesting if unsurprising story regarding our fighting in Afghanistan and the fact that Pakistan was never really on our side. Sure. This seems obvious but it clearly wasn't acted upon for a great deal of time(and really still isn't). [link=(http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/power-play...

Update for those who helped me a couple nights ago - ShortyRob
My wife is a difference maker. Circumstances related to work meant that until yesterday, I was having to deal with this issues alone. She managed to work a deal to get by my side yesterday. Things are still rough for me but having someone who REALLY knows what better or worse means is invaluable. I'...

Political Murders........Do you believe - ShortyRob

Read my lips......no new taxes - ShortyRob
Clearly, Bush 1 was an idiot. He should've had Obama as a staffer. Then, when his opponents hung that promise around his neck, he could've just said he really meant "no new taxes as long as the tax system worked" or something like that. And shit, at least we don't have tons of evidence that Bush ...

19 Maps That Will Help You Put The United States In Perspective - ShortyRob
I've always known this but it's funny. Just because I've always known that the Mercator map we pretty much always see is skewed north and away from the equator, that doesn't change the reality that even I don't "mentally see" these nations correclty in size because well, you pretty much never SEE th...

So. Bottom line on Dem excuses and blaming repubs for Obamacare - ShortyRob
So. They are arguing that if only Repubs had offerred amendments in exchange for support blah blah blah(Vegas Bengal). Bottom line. They are saying DEMS AREN'T CAPABLE OF CRAFTING LEGISLATION OR RUNNING shite ON THEIR OWN. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY ARE INCOMPETENT. You'll note, the VBs of the world ...

Magazine Photoshop.........am the only one who has become immune? - ShortyRob
I can remember a time when I naively lo"oked at the covers of magazines and thought,"holy crap, check her out" or hell, even in the case of guys thought, "gimme a break......" regarding how they looked. Now though, I literally walk by the magazines and I don't even look at the photos like they'r...

Holy hacktastic. Yahoo article stunning in stupidity - ShortyRob
This writer is an imbecile. Argues that companies who hire min wage workers COST the govt money because these workers end up using govt assistance. Um. No you fricking idiot. They hire low skilled workers who absent getting such jobs would require MORE govt assistance. Think about the level of br...

You say that's mean and you shouldn't say something like that? Why not? They were PERFECTLY HAPPY wh...

I ask again. Who on Earth is actually going to pay insurance premiums? - ShortyRob
I mean, seriously. Even for lefties who support the program, what percentage of not currently sick people will actually pay for insurance in cases where the fine is less than the premium? I mean, from an intelligent move perpective, that percentage should be 0%. I would pretty much expect nearly ...

A question regarding signing up for Obama care..........why exactly - ShortyRob
would anyone do this? I mean, let's speak not from a political standpoint, but just from a personal finance standpoint. If you cannot be refused for pre-existing conditions, why would anyone actually sign up for insurance while healthy? It would seem to me that the only people this might make...

Basic lesson in negotiation that Obama seems to be missing - ShortyRob
In watching what's happening thus far, I'd say it's going exactly as I expected. The right is getting pounded in opinion polls and is taking much of the blame. And, Obama/Reid et al are reveling in it. But, they're missing something sort of key in negotiations that it appears some on the right get. ...

Let's be honest here........congress and govt is NOT being dysfunctional here - ShortyRob
Everyone acts like there's some big confusion regarding why congress can't "do it's job" blah blah. That goes for both sides thinking congress is broken. Congress is NOT broken. It is a direct reflection of a dynamic going on in this country. Simply put, we have been traveling to this place for q...

FYI. It appears Military Pay Act has not conclusively ensured pay - ShortyRob

Another reason I say the GOP screwed the pooch here - ShortyRob
ObamaCare is a fricking catastrophe. And, the dumb frick people VOTED FOR the asshat that gave it to us. In my view, they deserve the assrape that they were about to start seeing on the exchanges. Had the Repubs just sat back another year, the outcry to repeal the shite would've been deafening. NOW...

A redux thread because I assume the other was anchored for poor thread title. This tactic is bull shite. Bring a damned bill to the floor of the House without the demand and vote on it. THAT is how our govt SHOULD work. You either have the votes or you don't. It is Bull shite when Reid refuses ...

it just makes no sense that assad launched chem weapons - ShortyRob
Bottom line, it seems nonsensical that assad did it. He had zero to gain on it. He was already winning and he knew it was the only way we would engage him. That is what fails the smell test to me. People winning don't generally do things on purpose to reduce their chances of winning in the future. T...

Nobel peace prize retroactive awarding - ShortyRob
So. Once Obama attacks Syria, can the Nobel committee retroactively award Bush a peace prize too? Would seem to make sense. Continued all of Bush's wars. Adds to them. Then. Attacked another main for what very likely are the same chemical weapons Bush used to attack Iraq. Seems fair enough that if t...

His attendance at Wright's church all that time no accident. No. He didn't miraculously miss all the worst sermons. His association with many other overtly racist prominent blacks is no accident. While he enjoys the vote of white liberals, you dudes are idiots. He couldn't give two fricks about...

Some of you can't even define profiling correctly - ShortyRob
The Zimm case had nothing to do with profiling. The perp who had hit the neighborhood previously happened to be black. That's not profiling. That's looking for strange folks that meet the characteristics of the previous perp. If no robberies had taken place in the neighborhood or if they had no ...

Question for Outraged Blacks - ShortyRob
