    Getting bored of arguing politics...


    GASP

    Go ahead, say it "Your Game, Your Rules"

    Lol

    Seriously, after the election, no matter who wins I am done with this topic for a while....

    I'll either be crying in my beer, or poppin the Dom, but either way, unless we start bombing Iran, I'm all done with talking politics for a while...

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    Yeah but then chaos ensues. Either invade and force a new government on them, or just wipe 'em off the face of the map.




    Seriously though, something has to be done about Iran. For the Bush haters...you DO KNOW that Kerry wants to supply nuclear technology (for energy purposes) to Iran, don't you? (think N. Korea)
    Hohum, if anything makes you shiver, that should be it. And you're voting for him.

    There are many things that Kerry supporters know nothing of about him...

    Like, EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!

    Do any Kerry supporters, honestly, know what to expect of him IF he does get elected???? He certainly has no record of any signifigant accomplishments in his 25+ year political career.

    The first step to recovery is admitting that there is a problem, right?!?!?!?!

    Yes, Kerry and Edwards want to supply fissile material suitable for use in nuclear reactors (BUT NOT WEAPONS) to the Iranians on the condition that they drop their enrichment program (since if its just for energy as they say, they should be totally willing to get some cheap ready made uranium from us)

    Wouldn't you be happier with an Iran that isn't enriching uranium on their own? (especially given that reactor grade material isn't usable in fission or fusion bombs without further enrichment?)

    No, we don't know what Kerry will do but even a trained monkey could do better as president than the current trained monkey

    Seriously, thats a bogus argument. What did you guys know about Bush before he came into office? The same thing, NOTHING. He was a failed businessman, and governor of a state.... whoopdedoo. Thats just like the old "don't switch horses mid race" argument, and its another "fear mongering" no substance argument.

    Chris, do you realize how dangerous that would be? Do you remember when Madeline "halfbright" Albright made the same deal with N Korea? They "promised" not to use the technology for weapons enrichment. Guess what, they broke their promise. Do you really think that the Iranians, who already hate us, would keep their promise? I certainly would not trust them. Besides, why would Iran, a country with some of the world's most plentiful oil reserves need to use nuclear energy for their power? Do you think they have something else in mind?

    No fear mongering at all, just the facts, Jack!!!! You are correct in the fact that we knew relatively little about G.W. before he was elected, but we know far less of the Senator from Massachussetts other than his failure to report for his obligations 70% of the time throughout his Senate tenure.

    That 70% is just another lie with statistics right there. That number reflects his attendence on the Senate Intelligence Committee, not his attendance in the Senate or on coting issues. Its just propaganda thrown at you that you bought, hook line and sinker.

    We know a good deal about Kerry if you bother to look at his actual voting record itself (you can find it online at a .gov domain, anyplace else you find it isn't likely to be terribly accurate). Contrary to Bush, who all we knew was that he was willing to do things like enact a 'Jesus Day'

    And btw Joe, its actually much harder to get a Senate seat that a gubernatorial seat. Compare the number of dollars spent on each campaign... Costs about half as much to become a governor in the majority of states as it does to become a senator (in pure dollars spent of course)

    There's eight states where it costs more to become governor than it costs to become a senator (in terms of campaign spending trends)

    Think big states

    Small states a gubernatorial campaign is nowhere near as big or pricey as a senate campaign.

    At least you got my point, a VERY telling point. BTW, if he can't make the intelligence committee meetings, what business does he have blasting the President on intelligence issues? I'm really surprised, given how intelligent you and Clayton and highsider are, that you guys don't see right through Kerry. He has proven time and time again, that he will say anything, no matter how outrageous the lie, to get elected.

    I don't know why we continue to argue this stuff....
    I can't wait for the election to end.
    Maybe after Nov.2, we can post on MOTORCYCLE related stuff!!!!


    So when is NESR day at F1 Boston?????????????????

    That of course is a very telling point. But its a point OUT of context. The majority of time Kerry was serving on the Intelligence Committee initially, he was a very junior senator, and as far as big committees go, junior senators usually just give their proxy vote on the committee to the senior party members on the committee. Its just a political play that is a side effect of our entirely two party dominated system.

    It doesn't change my opinion that Kerry will look at new intelligence more as hints than as black and white knowledge like our current president did...

    Ahhh, arguing on the internet

    This is how we have the current N. Korea situation.

    There's alot of talk about Iran becoming a democracy on it's own...

    This is what you think Kerry will do. But, even you and his other supporters must admit that nobody has any idea of what he will really do, if elected.

    I know I will not change any minds, here, but I have read many editorials and articles written by Kerry supporters over the past few weeks. The one thing that ALL of the writers that I read have in common is that none are very excited about Kerry. They all just hate Bush. Sad.....
