[quote]If Bush had not invaded Iraq and had concentrated on Afghanistan, I think a few things would have happened:
(1) Osama would have probably been killed on Bush's watch;
(2) Bush would have maintained a higher approval rating through his reelection and through his second round of midterms;

I started P90X3 a little over two weeks ago. I'm really enjoying the workouts. I find myself much more motivated than when I did P90X... the simple fact that when I'm gassed (like in Agility X or...

Every time he got the ball, usually around the top of the key, the entire student section would chant, "Shoot! Shoot!" knowing that he wouldn't... because, after all, he was a 7-foot center who couldn't shoot.
Some time in the second half, he got the...
