  1. Sorry I didn't answer this earlier. For some of us the issue of murdering babies in the womb is pretty big. Absolutely that is the reason I switched parties. The pro life movement is centered in the Republican party. Even dogs will fight to the death to defend their offspring. We have fallen below the level of animals.

  2. Good job man! I really mean it. You ever need an Organizational Behavior psychologist you let me know. 100k plus though (I do like you, I am not joking. My wise cracks before, meant nothing personal).
  3. Well I am sorry you burned your cash on a donation to that organization. Because even republican congress members have said that they will not going to be successful in the repeal, but instead want to waist the countries time "because that is what they voted for". Okay, why don't they do something people actually voted for like creating jobs or lowering the deficit. In fact, the CBO states that 230 billion will be added to the deficit and 32 million more will be uninsured if the repeal happens. Good luck selling that bill of goods for corporate interest. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/06/cbo-health-care-repeal-deficit_n_805192.html
  4. http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/05/fiscal-shock-2/ Nice little op-ed, more needs to be said but still okay.
  5. Leach ran a clean program and had the highest Grad rate in the big 12. The fact that you would believe Craig James, who was involved in the biggest college football scandel in history is mindboggling. Anyways, college football loses when Mike Leach does not have a job. That TT team was amazing to watch every Saturday after the ND game was over.
  6. Well to be fair, in police work it is different. But remember you work for the government. Even still, they are having trouble transferring from one gov't job to another. So if an education is not the solution what is? I know this history, I have seen the houses built by private businesses to military families that went to work for the auto plants in Flint. I have seen those houses with my own eyes and matter fact sold a few. In fact, I lived in a suburb that I bought my house in that was the old exectutive suburb of the biggest plant. The fact is these people can not find jobs becuase we make nothing anymore. Service economy, leads us no where for the future.
  7. We are finally seeing what your were fighting for!!! We should definatly as a nation, not help them out. Because they should fend for themselves!! My republicans stand up!!! Standing? No? Where are you, no deficits remember? Who cares about other people remember? I thought we were in this together? No? You sure you do not want to support the GI bill? Your sure? No, you could careless right? It does not go with corporate interest? We shouldnt help them NO! It adds to the fake deficit!! We could careless it is in us, we didnt goto war why should we care? I support the troops and I love them, but spend my tax dollars? No way! http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/12/29/AR2010122904498.html?hpid=topnews
  8. I work harder than you with my pinkie finger. Get a life son. I know you old and have half accomplished what I have done in your life span. But seriously Rich-Rod "Get a life". Seriously stalker, you need help. Get to work, funny to me, see like Chiro I own mine sonny. And I continue my education, you got a problem with that? Not only do I own my own business, pay my taxes, root for ND on Saturdays, but am pursing a real Phd like others that fake it on this board. Get off MY %^&%! http://healium.wordpress.com/files/2009/07/obamam-lol-y-u-mad-tho.jpg I never came at you personally? Matter fact, since I started I never came at nobody persoanlly. Y'all attack me, ban me whatever. I just speak my piece and y'all get your panties in a bunch. But I gotta give up to the mods, I know they are all right-wing and I have had private chats with some. Really good people keeping me on board and all. I mean seriously, Don Juan we went at it in that one convo, and you banned me, but you brought me back and I remember that good back and forth we had in the PM. It was a good discussion. I would love to have good discussions with everyone and sidetrack the personal vendattas against me. And thank you Pjack for stickin up, it was me and you against all in that NFL socialism discussion, you brought some serious heat could not have done it without you bro. You see it is a funny thing with this board, it does not represent Christians, ND, or anything of the alike (open forum). I came here like any other fan would for great insight on ND football and then I seen the open forum!!! My personal agenda you ask? It is to expose Hypocrisy. You see the Vatican is all about no wars, yet you support them. The vatican is about no condoms, yet I support them. Tucker Carlson your Republican fox news loser is about executing Michael Vick, yet you are pro-life, and I questions why are Industrail farmers not executed for the serious harm they do to cows, pigs and chickens similar to Mick Vick's actions. A pig is smarter than a dog. So I will continue to question. I will always question ignorance, until my soul burns slow. No America is a Oligarchy. Or crony capitalism whatever you see fit. Definatly not free-market. That has not existed for awhile now, if ever. I love when conservatives use that term though, it is so funny!!! I never in my life have seen it in real form, it is kind of like communism, has anyone ever seen it? I mean the way Marx laid it out? Nope, never!! HAHAHA hilarious, so funny, neither have ever been done! Free-market=maybe in the 1200's, communism maybe also in the 1200's. Never has either been seen in true form in any of our lifetimes. Yet we fight for this? Funny to me, I dont know about anyone else?
  9. Harpers magazine from 1847, which read, "I know we've ge huge deficits, major environmental problems, several social ills, and so on. And these are serious problems. Unfortunately, we'll always have serious problems. However, equating 'serious' with 'fatal' would be to greatly underestimate this country. 'It is a gloomy moment in history...never has the future seemed so dark and incalculable. The United States is beset with racial, industrial and commercial chaos, drifting we know not where. Of our troubles, no man can see the end."
  10. Because the President at the time said it was safe to go and try to help. A citizen? Okay stand up do something about it then. Are you standing yet? And I could really careless about what Crockett said some almost two hundrend years ago when asbestos or planes did not even exist. Lets not mention he was probably talking about soilders who have that ol' socialized healthcare, would you cancel that? They did not have 200k hospital bills back then or any dollar amount that can even relate to inflation of now. And you really think republicans that held this up even remotely thought of what you are talking about? No! It was a political gain, plenty republicans request billons in useless earmarks and could careless about deficit spending. They wanted to hold this up so they could put another +1 on their 911 agenda, republicans want to deny dems from anything that has to do with 911. They would have passed this easy once they took the house. Again, Cheney himself said deficits do not matter. So while you have noble thoughts here, you are falsely mistaken for anyone in office really following your beliefs. The victims families got a lot in charities. This is about the volunteer fireman/police/regular citizens WHO DONT HAVE UNION OR HEALTH INSURANCE. For you ignorant folks that think that this was just for the staffed govt employees. Hey I all for us pulling the 50k troops out of Germany and similar stories in other nations. Cut that defense spending, best policy I ever heard! So you do not have a thought on the thread? You support republicans opposing this bill? Or are you going to continue stalking me in every thread? Is there some void in your life where you have to wake up everyday thinking about how much you hate me? Were you abused as a child, your parents call you ugly?
  11. Did you even watch the video? http://thenewvoice.files.wordpress.com/2008/04/thetruthisoutthere.jpg
  12. This is from some Right wing looney website "campus reform". Trying to coax conservative parents not to send their kids to left-leaning schools. Apparently Notre Dame made the list. The University of Notre Dame is located in South Bend, Indiana, just 90 miles east of Chicago. Notre Dame was founded in 1842 as an independent, national Catholic research university. Today, Notre Dame has expanded to more than 11,600 students of which approximately 8,300 are undergraduates. Campus Life Of the 23 political campus groups, 16 are liberal and seven are conservative. The liberal campus groups are the American Civil Liberties Union; Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty; College Democrats; Diversity Council; Environmental Law Society; GreeND; MEChA de ND (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan de Notre Dame); Net Impact Undergraduate Club, which focuses on sustainability; Progressive Student Alliance; Proponents of Animal Welfare Service; NAACP chapter of Notre Dame; Social Justice in American Medicine; Social Justice Legal Forum; Students for Environmental Action; Students for New Urbanism; and Feminist Voice. The conservative campus groups are the College Libertarians; College Republicans; Federalist Society; Jus Vitae, which is the law school’s students for life chapter; Right to Life, which is the undergraduate students for life chapter; Young Americans for Liberty; and The Irish Rover, the only conservative student newspaper at Notre Dame. The italicized groups are affiliated with CampusReform.org's Campus Leadership Program, which provides students with advice, assistance, and support. Faculty According to campaign finance data from The Huffington Post, 82% of Notre Dame faculty and staff who contributed to presidential campaigns in 2008 donated to Democratic candidates. In all, 71 people donated more than $47,000 to Democrats -- and just 16 gave money to Republicans. According to campaign finance data from OpenSecrets.org, 44% of the donations made by contributing members of Notre Dame's Board of Trustees in the 2008 presidential election went to Democratic candidates. University Policy In May 2009, Notre Dame invited President Barack Obama to receive an honorary doctorate and deliver the graduation address. Critics, including many from the Catholic community, opposed Notre Dame's decision as a pro-life, Catholic university to welcome a president who adamantly supports abortion. FIRE, a prominent legal defense organization, gave Notre Dame a "red light" rating in its 2010 report. This rating indicates that Notre Dame has "at least one policy that both clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech." In particular, FIRE highlighted policies that punish students for damage to the "psychological well-being of others" and "posting, viewing, printing or sending material that is contrary to the mission or values of the University" using university computers or other technology. Although these policies may sound straight-forward, conservatives should beware. College administrators consistently use ambiguous policies to silence conservatives on campus -- and have argued that conservative views are "degrading" or "disrespectful" or "intolerant." Last fall, members of the Gender Relations Center and the Core Council for Gay and Lesbian Students started a petition "to have 'sexual orientation' added to the University of Notre Dame’s non-discrimination clause –- it’s currently not listed alongside 'race/ethnicity, color, national origin, sex, disability, veteran status or age.'" According to a recent Observer article, a number of organizations at Notre Dame have petitioned to include “sexual orientation” for several years, but the University has refused to amend the non-discrimination clause stating, "after careful analysis from both the legal and theological perspectives, it was determined that adding the clause may not allow us to distinguish between sexual orientation and behavior, which is a distinction that we must maintain as a Catholic university." In January 2010, Notre Dame’s Student Government passed its own resolution that called for "sexual orientation" to be added to the non-discrimination clause, arguing that "as the only top-20 university without 'sexual orientation' included in the clause, 'this is just going to hold us back.'" http://nd.campusreform.org/group/blog/20-university-of-notre-dame
  13. I did not intend to mean that in your way at all. I was just saying not only white Catholics graduate from there. And how does St. Joesph country have nothing to do with Notre Dame? When it is in the county. Look, Catholics most of the time always have voted for majority Democrat in elections.
