Santorum: College educations "devalue tremendous work" - ImmortalSynn
I realize that this board is pretty far to the right... but considering that it's geared toward college graduates, I'd be interested to see you guys/gals' take on this: [quote][i]Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Sunday reached out to voters who do not want a college degree, sayi...

Why isn't Santorum talking about divorce? - ImmortalSynn
If the dude wants to bring up all these social issues (I mean, he's dogging amniocentesis now, for crying out loud)... ...then why's he avoiding the 5ton elephant in the room: how essentially half of marriages here end in divorce? ...

Good lord Santorum says idiotic things! - ImmortalSynn
Obama and Romney have something of a gift for gaffe, and Joe Biden's name is almost synonymous with it..... but jesus, no one seems to take the cake like Santorum. As reported by CNN today: [i]The presidency, Santorum said, is "not necessarily a CEO type of position"[/i] [link=(http://politica...

If you've seen "The Iron Lady" yet: thoughts on treatment of political issues? - ImmortalSynn
I'm posting this here in this forum, because I want to talk about whether or not yall think the political issues (e.g, general Conservatism, flat tax, handling terrorists, war, etc) were handled by this movie. I think that for a Hollywood production, they were remarkably generous in their way of ...

Anti-abortion proponents: how would 'you' enforce it? - ImmortalSynn
For the ones of you who equate abortion to murder, would outlaw it in all forms (even for rape and female health/survival), and criminalize its performance.... well, how exactly would you enforce that, while claiming to the "small government" ideals that you're more than likely to profess at the sam...

Gauge: your true opinion of Ronald Reagan - ImmortalSynn
I'm bringing this over from another political forum that I frequent. In essence, a poster there asked what's up with the Right-skewed media's abject deification of Reagan.

Difference between Gingrich and Romney? - ImmortalSynn
Apparently, it's Gingrich's turn to be the anybody-but-THAT-guy against Mitt Romney, and his surge in the polls shows a lot of support behind him. But, um, why? What's the difference between them? Gingrich flipflops just as badly/blatantly as Romney. Gingrich also can't do the holier-tha...

VIDEO: the mind-numbing *tragedy* of AA965 - ImmortalSynn
The crash of American Airlines flight 965 was a horrific tragedy, but one that I've found morbidly-fascinating, in part due to the factors involved; but mostly due to how quickly the human error "bullet theory" came into effect as desplayed-- as the flight went from completely normal and in control,...
