Maybe snippets of Michelle whispering to her husband "All this for folding a flag?" and then shaking her head in disgust....with Obama nodding his head like "yea, baby, I know...gotta sit through dis shit"  Grin
1403  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Should we continue our government funding scientific research or on: September 19, 2011, 07:36:05 PM
If anything, increase it (so long as it is put to relatively good use).  The endowments granted to the various universities across the US have made a great many contributions such as the University of Florida to agriculture down here.

If anything, cut Defense spending by a significant amount.....there is no reason for us to be maintaining hundreds of bases overseas where there is no threat(Germany, Japan, Italy, S. Korea).  Make Social Security a personal, low-interest government bank....what you, as a person puts in, is what you get out of it when you hit the retirement age.  Cut social services by a significant amount......there is no reason at all for able-bodied people to collect welfare, free housing, free cell phones, EBT cards, and free electricity/energy to their free homes. Reduce or eliminate wasteful foreign aid, especially to hostile nations.

Tax the shit out of soda, candy, chips, all junk food on top of fast food....implement taxes on strip bars(Gentleman Clubs my ass)...give nice, scary warnings on junk food and fast food as they do on cigarettes.

Woops....sorry.....Rant Off

agreed but I still think Rick is electable...but as a moderate Republican..he can attract Democratic votes in the general election and republicans have no choice but to vote for him since they hate Obama so much

Rick Perry certainly does look presidential, and a far better candidate than McCain was.  I still think the economy has to further decline, however, for him to win.  Or if National Security issues suddenly go on the front burner of relevant issues.

The Few and the Proud....

a book about Marine Drill Sergeants from WW2 up to the modern era.....featuring R. Lee Ermey(who provided some great insight on the making of the movie, Full Metal Jacket)

World War 2 Commanders...........

just a quick and concise bio of WW2 commanders from both the Axis and Allies side.

I'd like to know this as well. Auto races in general are pretty dang boring.

The sound of roaring engines from open headers and the smell of fumes mixed with some beer is a thing to experience!
1408  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Israel - Arab Conflict on: September 19, 2011, 03:35:41 PM
The second highest recipient of US Foreign Aid is Saudi Arabia...including around 60 Billion in Arms sales to Riyadh last year.  Several hundred million in aid also goes to the Palestinians from the US each year (although it pales in comparison to the billions we give to Israel, however).  Many of the Middle Eastern nations are just as if not more responsible for the Palestinian's woes as Israel and the Palestinians themselves.  Palestinians are pretty much the "cellar dwellers" of the peoples of the Middle East, many working low wage jobs in other Arab nations.......basically, a step below where illegal Mexicans now stand in the US today.  They are used for propaganda purposes to keep pressure on Israel and its allies.

I may point out the excessiveness and influence that the Israeli lobby has here in the US, but the Israeli entity is certainly not a sole bad guy, if they are a bad guy at all.......an Islamic-dominated region simply cannot sustain peace with any of its neighbors...whether they be Jewish, Christian, or Muslim.
1409  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Warren Buffet - Hypocrite on: September 19, 2011, 12:32:02 PM
The US has a much greater SPENDING problem than it does a taxing problem.  Due to tax loopholes and the various ways in which the very wealthy accumulate their wealth, higher taxes would mean very little to them in the long run.  Buffet's plea sounds more pluralistic than an actual solution to the US debt problem.

Then again, more tax income just means another endowment to some company to create electric batteries for electric cars that don't exist.

Yup, it just looks politically expedient to say we are bringing troops home, but just send more taxpayer paid contractors over there to take over their similar duties (law enforcement, mail, cooking, engineering, drivers, etc..).

Lots of other nationals over there as well working various jobs.
1412  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: THE OFFICIAL RICK PERRY ELECTION THREAD on: September 19, 2011, 12:07:38 PM
Which african-american repub candidates have been smeared in 2011?

None, from what I've seen.  If Herman Cain were indeed a front-runner, the Godfather's Pizza CEO would get annhilated.  However, he's with Ron Paul....ignored and relegated to the back seat.
1413  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: New Book On Palin: Sex With BBall Player And Cocaine on: September 19, 2011, 12:03:21 PM
Weiner's weiner was very different...it just had great bonus comedic value to it that could not be passed up.  Even then, much of the mass media did not put a huge emphasis on the moral wrongness of his indiscretions. 

This is just another example of how many of the big media networks have a liberal bias and do not criticize or attack Democrats nowhere near the amount that it attacks Republicans and/or Conservatives.
1414  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: New Book On Palin: Sex With BBall Player And Cocaine on: September 19, 2011, 09:08:28 AM
I'm not a Palin fan by any means, but........this is just another hit piece on a Conservative woman.  There is nothing controversial or damning when the attacks are aimed at conservative women and/or blacks.  Why?  Because it is so common, this book will be forgotten in a week or two.  If Sarah Palin were a Democrat and has been, say, John Kerry's VP, you wouldn't have the attacks on her like you do nowadays.

The hypocrisy is amazing.

Then again, Heath, outside of Mr. Personality Dexter Jackson, doesn't have a bloated, GH gut.  Has to be a good thing..and he's a personable and likeable guy.

LOL, whiskey and a carton of smokes.  Nice.

Anyway, Black Lychee tea with honey in it, some papaya and pineapple slices, and 3 egg whites.

Tasty.
1417  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Now I'm getting pissed. NFL in cooperation with DHS orders enhanced pat downs. on: September 19, 2011, 08:58:44 AM
No, I did not state that a pat down would...perhaps it would dissuade someone from going, perhaps, I don't know.

Pat downs are simply an illusion of security.  They've not been found to prevent anything, and are often an annoyance and a possible intrusion on our privacy.

But there sure are a lot of rude, drunken assholes in football stadiums though  Grin
1418  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: THE OFFICIAL RICK PERRY ELECTION THREAD on: September 19, 2011, 08:56:11 AM
He is UNELECTABLE...just like every other Republican candidate.  The mass media(outside of Fox and AM Talk Radio), the entertainment industry, big cities, and some large corporations will ensure any Republican gets absolutely smeared and abused to set up an Obama 2nd term.  God forbid if you are a female or black Republican, than the insults and smears come at you twice as hard........and without the protections of the various so-called "civil rights" organizations that pretend to defend AFrican-Americans and/or women.

I really, really hate agreeing with anything Benny B puts up, but damn....the writer here is mostly correct.  Many prominent people would agree with these assertions as well.

Have you seen the animals that have been going to games as of late?  I'd say many NFL venues are not exactly family-friendly.

1421  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Maybe one day America will be like Russia on: September 19, 2011, 08:41:07 AM
Our nation already resembles this in many ways...take a ride through Detroit, Buffalo, Gary, Cleveland, or any other rust belt city.....hell, just check out the dingier areas of the foreclosure crisis in some of the perceived "premier" cities of the US....Miami, Las Vegas, Los Angeles.

Russia still has a multitude of problems, although they have made many improvements under the great visionary that is Putin(the best of the world's leaders).  Alcoholism is taking a HUGE toll, and needs to be stopped.

I go to these types of events.....went to the Ft. Lauderdale Air Shows a few times, been at the drag races, Monster Jams, demolition derbies.  All kinds of people go to these events from all walks of life.

No one is saying that he is better than Coleman.  However, Phil is compared favorably to Levrone and Flex, and those were guys who could stand on stage with Ronnie and give him some competition.  There really isn't anybody in the history of bodybuilding that would be able to compete with a Coleman at his all-time best.
1424  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: What should Jay's punishment be for his doctored up bicep? on: September 17, 2011, 07:41:06 AM
So direct site injections can dramatically change the shape and size of a bicep in a matter of months(if that)?  His left arm has been terrible, but he shows up with an almost Coleman-esque peak?  It has to be oil.
1425  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Time to put the UAW Union in their place on: September 11, 2011, 02:52:07 PM
Unions themselves are quickly becoming a thing of the past.  Membership continues to decline, as well as their influence.  GM, Ford, and Chrysler continue to build factories in Mexico and China to utilize the much cheaper labor.  Foreign manufacturers such as Toyota, Nissan, and BMW are building factories in places like Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi.....where taxes and cost of living are low, with great weather...............AN D...no unions to contend with.  This is why the northeast and rust belt areas continue to become the shitholes of the US.........high taxes, high unemployment, reduced populations, cities like Buffalo, Detroit, and Cleveland...no one wants to do business there.  Period.

Thank globalization.  Both parties have sold us out and we have little to no protectionist policies in place.
