I come from a military family, I was learning more about history, weapons, other countries and the military at the age of six than most people three times my age. Born and raised near San Fransisco. I love to read and write,not a great speller though. I was a world traveler till I was twenty five. I have friends of every size, shape, race, sex, orientation, type and political affiliation (except "truthers" or extremists, they are too irrational). I am passionate about Politics, I am a Republican and I make no apologies about it. Do I go lock step with everything my party promotes? No. Do I agree with a lot of Republican principles? Yes. I like to argue, and will often time play devil's advocate if I think it would be fun to have a debate. So I try to keep informed on both sides of a political argument. I like to talk and I like to laugh even if no one know why. Respect my views and I will respect yours. I always have a story to tell. And I usually ramble on and on and on
What do you think?
Side note: I have to say I am very dubious about the "facts" the video claims, although I believe the one about Islamic extremists was more in reference to Ahmadinejad. http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20080927...4 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
So Archeology proves the glaciers were smaller, but we should worry because the glaciers are getting smaller?
I have been listening to environmentalists screaming that “These are the highest temperatures ever!” for years now. And yet here is archeological proof that the glaciers in the Swiss Alps have grown and receded continuously for thousands of years (well millions really, but let’s go by the numbers given in this article shall we?).
So how many coal burning plants and cars were around in 3000 b.c. that contributed to the melting of the glaciers that allowed the person, who dropped these artifacts, to cross the mountains on clear paths?
So it was warmer 5000+ YEARS AGO? Wait I thought only Bush and the evil industrial world caused climate change? Were they even around back then?
And did anyone else note the reporter had to throw in a little warning about glacial melting too scare the enviro-kiddies after pointing out that it has happened before?
So let’s recap, the glaciers will recede and more sites would be discovered showing the ice had receded before, but we better be careful because the ice is receding…
If there is all this proof that “Global Climate Change” is dooming us all, why does the theory keep falling flat on its face when exposed to historical, archaeological, and geological scrutiny?13 AnswersGlobal Warming1 decade ago
So Infants and toddlers are racists for finding food "yucky"?
So then doesn't that mean most infants are innately racist, since most are picky eaters ?
I think Indian, Middle eastern and Caribbean food is "Yucky" does that make me a racist, even though I have friends who are Indian, Caribbean and Middle eastern?
Why do SOME liberals want us to become like Europe with it's ever increasing level of idiotic laws?

Couple of interesting stories coming out of Wisconsin.
It seems a pledge delegate Debra Bartoshevich, who was publicly upset about Clinton’s loss and about being forced to support Obama, openly announced that she would Vote for McCain. Explaining that her frustration with how Clinton was treated by her party and that she does not trust Obama or his inexperience, was the root of her displeasure.
Well, now it seems Disagreement equals Banishment in the DNC.
“At the state Democratic Party convention, party members, including Clinton supporters, unanimously passed a resolution asking the national party not to seat Bartoshevich at the Denver convention.”
And on the matter of Mrs. Bartoshevich’s removal Party chair Joe Wineke said, “It actually strengthened what we were doing here, I mean the thunderous vote on that from the delegation showed me that virtually everybody here has one mission, and that is to elect Barack Obama president.5 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
So why would someone who supports Obama also support Che Guevara? Is that the “Change” they are looking for?
So, what kind of “Change” are some Obama supporters actually looking for?

So shouldn’t rational people wonder why prominent Obama supporters and his own staffers (even if they are only volunteers) proudly display an image of a communist mass Murderer next too or around Images of Obama?
NOTE!!!! I am NOT implying that ALL Obama supporters agree with or own pictures or celebrate Che. But imagine if you saw a Photo of (for example) Pol pot, Timothy Mcveigh or Jim Jones prominently displayed with some other politician's supporters.

So Obama claims his uncle was involved with the Liberation of Auschwitz, so then his uncle was in the Red Army
Obama made a speech over Memorial day and said his uncle was involved in the liberalization of Auschwitz...
But Auschwitz was/is in Poland and the Soviets liberated the camp, not the US forces...
So if it is part of Obama's "Family legend" then is it possible Obama is a liar? or his uncle is a fraud? Or does it mean his uncle was in the Red Army, not to US (Which again would make Obama a liar since he aid he fought for the US)?10 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
In the last week or two there has been outrage from Obama and followers over a comment about appeasement from 70 years ago. And now people are ticked about a comment on a political assassination 40 years ago...
I know Obama and his followers believe the sun rises and sets at his command, but seriously... Does every event in history actually relate to him?
I see the same thing when discussing "Global warming", I mention the countless severe and dramatic climatic changes prior to the industrial revolution, or that Al Gore is actually profiting off the hysteria and SOME liberals act like I just took some one's puppy and stuck it in a deep fat fryer.
So what gives? Why be afraid of historical facts?
By the way, please note I said "SOME", I know SOME out there fail to notice the word and accuse me and others of making blanket statements.
And yes I know conservatives do it too, but the people who reacted the most negatively in recent events have been Liberals, get over it17 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago

Code-Pink's April fools joke was that they managed to kick the marines out of Berkley. Whats the real joke?
Code Pink put out a press release saying the Marines were leaving Berkley and were going to celebrate.
Of course it turned out to be a "Joke", they basically got together some tiny group and did a crappy performance piece in front of the Station claiming victory.
Anyone laughing at the "joke"?

Just an article about the filming of the Harvey Milk movie going on in San Fran.
Please note Sean Penn's Comments when discussing people he dislikes. He refers too Sean Hannity as "the **** boy of Rupert Murdoch".
So since saying anything negative about people in today's society (Particularly if it is about race, sexuality or gender) means having to take sensitivity classes and making a public apology, when can we expect Sean Penn to do so?14 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago

If Chavez invades Colombia and the US acts to protect one of it's allies, will the far left blame Bush?
(NOTE: I said FAR LEFT! I am not talking about all people in the left. This is for the ignorant people who don't think I know there is a diffrence.)
Chavez has become more and more aggressive as of late, there have been rumblings of conflict between Venezuela and it's neighbors since Chavez took office.
Now that Colombia finally managed to take out a leader of FARC (a mission in to Ecuador that had the permission of the Ecuadorian government) Chavez has started making threats and moving forces to the border.
So since far left Chavez is protecting the far left FARC, will the far left in the US try to protect Chavez if he invades a democratic and free nation?
And will the far left in the US attack Bush for protecting a long time ally and democraticaly elected government?14 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
How will Berkley and code pink commemorate today? The 63rd anniversary of the Marine invasion of Iwo Jima...?
Today is the 63rd anniversary of the invasion of Iwo Jima.
For 36 days the marines fought for control over a pork chop shaped rock in the middle of the Pacific, losing 6825 marines in the process.
The sacrifice made by the Marines helped save the lives of 2400 bomber crews (approx. 27000 men) who had to make emergency landings on the island and helped dramatically shorten the war over all.
On a day like today does it upset you that men like this and there decedents get slapped in the face by the Berkley city council and Code pink?

From the article: "Despite having hundreds of sonar contacts over the years, the trail has since gone cold and Rines believes that Nessie may be dead, a victim of global warming."
So now "Global warming" is killing of imaginary monsters... Should we be worried about Big Foot and the Chupacabra (the "Goat sucker" of mexican myth)?
Should congress pass protection laws on these creatures?
Perhaps some one should notify Al Gore... I mean man-bear-pig might be next.13 AnswersGlobal Warming1 decade ago
I thought the far left was not in to treason, did these guys at the demonstration in Berkley not get the memo?
These were taken yesterday in Berkley before, during and after the city council meeting.
I thought the far left said it was actually being patriotic by opposing the Marines and the government. These two guys seem to be relishing the fact they are committing "treason" (granted, whether it is or not, is a mater of opinion).
So is Treason actually a good thing? Or the Far left simply been trying to cover up thier true feelings and hatred?
Oh for those who say it is a couple of isolated incidents, here are a few more from other Bay area protests.24 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago

I know the far left wants to be seen as "Protectors the public interest". But if they can't even handle bad mouthing the marines for more than a week without starting to reconsider and starting to crumble under public pressure, how can anyone take them seriously?
