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...
| Political Talk|| Why isn't Santorum talking about divorce? - ImmortalSynn on 2/21/12 at 9:19 am|
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? ...
| Political Talk|| GRAPH: the real reason why Santorum will not win the nomination - ImmortalSynn on 2/8/12 at 11:08 pm|
Look closely. The blue line is Romney's fundraising.
The red line? That's not the X-axis of the graph... that's Santorum's fundraising. Dude can't attract money. At ...
| Political Talk|| Good lord Santorum says idiotic things! - ImmortalSynn on 2/5/12 at 4:27 pm|
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]

Wow, just friggin' wow.
To women pregnant via rape, he says [i]"accept what God has given to you."[/i]
No wonder Newt's the...

Sad, but not surprising. She's been through it....
| Political Talk|| If you've seen "The Iron Lady" yet: thoughts on treatment of political issues? - ImmortalSynn on 1/16/12 at 12:15 am|
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 ...
| Political Talk|| Anti-abortion proponents: how would 'you' enforce it? - ImmortalSynn on 12/29/11 at 9:43 pm|
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...

To me, it seems to pretty clearly say:
[i]"Wow, 300Million people in this country, yet [b]THESE [/b]a-holes are all we have to choose from?!"[/i]...

...ah yes, the "activist judges" line, perhaps the most idiotic meme in politics. :rolleyes:
Y'know, the more I hear him spout off about stuff like this, the more I believe he's trying to pull...
| Political Talk|| Gauge: your true opinion of Ronald Reagan - ImmortalSynn on 12/16/11 at 9:13 pm|
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.
This was a pretty centrist board, but still, to my surprise: most self-identified conservatives/Conservatives, Republicans, ...
| Political Talk|| Suggest some good Vietnam War era movies/films? - ImmortalSynn on 12/14/11 at 10:28 pm|
[i]I know this isn't exactly politics... but sorta close. That, and this section of the forum at least has the mental capacity to handle this in a semi-mature fashion. I dread the inanity of the OT/Entertainment section, and would rather just not ask, than post there.[/i]

| Political Talk|| How to pronounce Newt's name - ImmortalSynn on 12/8/11 at 12:27 pm|
No real epiphany, but just saw it on TV last night, and thought it was an interesting FYI sorta thing.
As per his sister, their name is actually pronounced [i]"GHEEN-rick"[/i] (not the common [i]"GHING-gritch"[/i]).
Seems too many pundits got it wrong when he was first starting out, and he jus...

| Political Talk|| Difference between Gingrich and Romney? - ImmortalSynn on 11/28/11 at 12:17 am|
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...

...looking to get a basic-but-decent GPS for my Jeep.
Pretty much narrowed it down to these two brands, but it's tough to decide between them, since they offer a lot of equal stuff on both price and performance.
So I thought I'd ask here. Y'all ever use either or both? If so, which would y...
| Political Talk|| Pawlenty drop out too early? - ImmortalSynn on 11/11/11 at 12:27 am|
To me, it seemed obvious that Tim Pawlenty had no desire/intention of taking a Presidential run seriously... and used a meaningless straw poll to drop out at near the first face-saving opportunity.
But I wonder, with several other not-Romney candidates having already had their moment... would he ...
| Political Talk|| Still don't believe the "Family Research Council" is a JOKE? - ImmortalSynn on 11/9/11 at 5:43 pm|
Anyone with two open eyes can probably figure out that Tony Perkins and his Family Research Council are little more than a anti-homosexual crusade, presented in thinly-veiled sham packaging.
But if ever there was any doubt, peep this:

I've always referred to Louisiana as [i]"the Africa of the Western hemisphere"[/i]... i.e., a place that has EVERY conceivable resource that an area could possibly need (or even [u]want[/u]) in order to prosper, yet is basically a ridiculed shithole.

I know he's very likely to win, as he's got cash that'd be very difficult to raise for any candidate without massive public recognition already.
You guys planning to vote, considering?...
| O-T Lounge|| VIDEO: the mind-numbing *tragedy* of AA965 - ImmortalSynn on 10/16/11 at 5:03 pm|
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,...

Booing a soldier for asking a question??
And not a single one of those candidates stood up for him.

I'm certainly NOT a 9/11 conspiracy theorist...
