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]
| Political Talk|| Santorum to Piers Morgan: rape pregnancy = gift from God - ImmortalSynn on 1/24/12 at 12:12 am|
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...

Just got a CNN Breaking News text. Says she will do so effective next week, and as soon as tomorrow.
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...
| Political Talk|| GRAPHIC: Iowa GOP caucus poll results throughout 2011 - ImmortalSynn on 12/28/11 at 11:32 pm|
What's it saying to you?
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]...
| Political Talk|| Newt wants to subpoena and arrest judges he disagrees with - ImmortalSynn on 12/18/11 at 1:19 pm|
...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 ...
