Yeah the Clintons have never been mentioned in connection with some shady business deals or people of questionable character.   Roll Eyes
There was a very long, drawn out, and expensive (how many hundreds of millions?) investigation... and the only thing they came up with was... a BJ.

Yeah, but they came out with a lot of people (including me) thinking that they got away with something. I don't think the Clintons were innocent in Whitewater, and now they have a stigma attached to them because of it.

But I like it the way one blogger framed it: it's nice that nobody is getting coronated (despite the media's attempts to do so), and that all the candidates actually have to (gasp!) make their case to the voters.

Cite.  In particular, the "despite the media's attempts to do so".

I don't know if you can cite that, just go to/watch CNN, MSNBC, etc and decide for yourself. Edwards isn't getting a lot of talk on MSNBC when I have watched last night and last Thursday. It's all about Hilliary and Obama with very little even said about the Republicans.

I did watch Fox for awhile last night and they seemed to be only talking about the republicans.

The only truly great speeches I have seen, from either side, are from Obama. He comes across as very presidential and is winning me over a bit more every time I see him talk. He's a natural at it.

Quote from: ATB on January 08, 2008, 08:13:12 PM

You believe Iranian state run TV more so than liberal mouthpiece CNN?

The only people who say that don't watch CNN. Just because everything isn't pro-Bush and they don't show a bunch of pieces saying how great he is. They also don't fill up their time slots with very biased commentary like some other station does (Larry King is hardly political 95% of the time). I would say CNN leans to the left, but they are hardly a mouth piece for the left. Now Fox is 100% right and their shows reflect it. They call it the no spin zone, but it is the complete opposite. And don't get me wrong, I don't like CNN, but if I want news without the commentary they are who I go to.

On a related note I was listening to Rush on phoner call in Friday. A major topic was that people were mad because Rush wouldn't go over each candidate and say whether they were conservative or not. To Rush's credit he refused to do so, but people were upset with him for it. It's like they wanted to be told how to think.

Show me where in the Constitution that our social programs are supposed to be funded by the government.  It specifically says that the government is responsible for post offices, posting roads, and army, navy, and posting defenses.  It doesn't say anything about funding social programs.

Does it mention the Air Force in there?? I hope so or we're going to have to get rid of it since the Constitution doesn't actually call for one.

As a side note Netflix's Watch it Now service is greatly improving. While the library needs to expand I can always find something I wouldn't mind seeing on there if I am bored. The full screen picture is quite good now, close to standard TV I would say, although the lack of forward and back buttons is annoying.
2291  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: David Lynch does an iPhone commercial on: January 05, 2008, 07:23:42 PM
Who buys a phone to watch movies on? It's more of an "I am stuck at the airport for 5 hours and I need something to do" kind of thing. Not to mention that there are tons of movies that are perfectly acceptable on a small screen (including most of DL's movies).
2292  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Awesome Video - If it's Real! on: January 01, 2008, 09:37:07 PM
Yeah that's a pretty cool video (search Youtube for "Nike soccer" or "Joga Bonito", there are a few good ones out there). Supposedly Nike admitted that it was fake, but I never saw anything official. Ronaldinho is really good (at least he used to be, he likes to party too much nowadays), but I doubt he is that good, so I would vote fake which seemed to be the general consensus when I first saw it a couple of years ago.

Quote from: Lee on December 30, 2007, 12:18:58 AM

Sure ATB, but God wanted Bush to be president, so we expected a little bit more from him. slywink

Source?

He didn't actually say it directly, but it has been no secret that he thinks God intervenes in the world, implying that God is on his side. He did say that God wanted him to run for president.

Quote
Stephen Mansfield, author of The Faith of George W. Bush, goes on to say: "Not long after, Bush called James Robison (a prominent minister) and told him, 'I've heard the call. I believe God wants me to run for President.' " Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention heard Bush say something similar: "Among the things he said to us was: I believe that God wants me to be president, but if that doesn't happen, it's OK.' "

Or here:

Quote
Bush said to James Robinson: 'I feel like God wants me to run for President. I can't explain it, but I sense my country is going to need me. Something is going to happen... I know it won't be easy on me or my family, but God wants me to do it.'

Just do a search for Bush mandate from god and you get a ton of hits for things Bush has said. A lot of them implying that he thinks God choose him.

Edit: Canuck beat me to it. There is a whole book about it actually

What should we have done instead?

I don't know what he should have done, but it is very hypocritical. We justify Iraq by saying we had to get rid of a dictator and spread democracy, yet we ignore other countries when it suits us (not that Musharraf compares to Saddam). If we cared about democracy and human rights we would be playing a role in Africa instead of a blind eye with the occasional comment to condemn the violence.

That's awesome, I have been wanting one of those forever but never found one I liked (not that I found many). I didn't know Alton Brown sold stuff, off to go buy one.

Edit: Thanks to Arkon I got to looking around Alton's site and ended up with one of these too:



Can't wait to try it out, if I like that angled handle I may have to replace my Global Chef knife too.

I was going to get it, but figured I would try the demo first just to make sure. I couldn't run the demo on Vista because it said I need to be logged on as the administrator, but I already was. So if you get it, you might want to see if you get the demo to run first.

2304  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Merry Christmas (Yes I said Christmas, so sue me) on: December 24, 2007, 04:58:37 AM
Who has told you not to say Merry Xmas Ken? I can see it if you were in public service, because you don't know who you are talking to really. I always figured this war on Xmas is something invented by Bill OReilly and the press and in reality doesn't really exist. Sure there has been some silly objections to trees and such, but I don't think the vast majority of people could care less. Even as an atheist I have no problem with it at all, Christmas doesn't have to be about religion, it can be about family, giving, or anything else you want it to be.
