212 Squadron - "The Old Man's Eyes And Ears"
I meant the Spacebattles forum
I don't think this thread was ever funny (admit it, the attempts at jokes of voting based on their record for fighting the Kilrathi were pretty lame), and to be honest, I think it's a little disrespectful to have tried.
The stakes in the upcoming presidential election are much too high.
We may not be worrying about mutual assured destruction like in the Cold War, but then again, the Soviets never killed 3,000 Americans,
You could reason with them. Islamic fundementalism is much more scary.
Yuhuh, because sending large forces into Afghanistan worked out so damn well for the Russians, the British, Alexander the Great, and everyone else that's ever tried.GeeBot said:And then we have the whole situation in Afghanistan. What if we had used our own troops to root out Osama bin Laden in Tora Bora, instead of relying on undisciplined Afghan militia?
Never mind the fact that any real economist would tell you that tax cuts boost the economy, create jobs, and (to a certain point) actually increase tax revenues.He makes vague promises to cut the deficit in half without mentioning that making his tax cuts permanent, something he constantly harps upon, will do the exact opposite.

Wow... being completely naked was the central theme of the Republican platform? That's... different .ck9791 said:Its nice to be completely naked sometimes.....
And yes, I believe that was a central part of the Republican Convention in New York. Bush, his wife, his daughters, Rudy Guliani, John McCain, and every other speaker said that was the central theme of the Republican platform.
Maj.Striker said:Bush's daughters are clearly a much better option for the naked role...here's another reason to vote for Bush: "Vote for Bush, he has hot daughters!" Maybe that would make a good commercial...seems to move a lot of "Live Girls at Cancun" videos...
