    NBA playoff ratings down big...

    It will probably come down to injuries. If one side suffers a key injury that limits someone or causes them to miss a game, the other side will win.

    This is sad, smart girl though

    I remember when I was like 10 years old, I was walking alone crossing the street in the crosswalk. Then I heard this loud revving on an engine. I looked up and the truck that had been witing for me cross so they could turn had floored it and was making the turn while I was still crossing. I sprinted to get off the street in time and the guy sped down the street coming close to ramming me. Unfortunately for him, a cop was sitting in a lot right there and saw everything. He immediately threw on his sirens and chased the truck down and pulled him over. I don't know what happened to the guy after that. What do you think the cops did?

    Remember when Republicans HAD to change French fries

    I'm saying the democrats were going to excoriate Bush either way wether he went in or not. 1. If he goes in, they will say no active program was found. 2. If he doesn't go in, they will say Bush is a wimp and every terror attack in the future will have 329478234892374389 democrats in front of a microphone openly demanding an investigation on if Saddam supplied the WMDs or training or any kind of aid to the effort and then immediately demand impeachment. If an attack goes off in America and Iraq had the slightest thing to do with it, the democrats would still be building granite monuments for the victims and remind everyone that Bush didn't invade when he could have done so to stop the attack. He just took the option that was more appealing. In fact, I don't think there is a single president that would NOT invade given those options. I mean sheet. If Bush does NOT invade, and there is a terror attack on US soil and some democrat traces a strand of hair back to Saddam, Bush not only resigns the presidency but his entire family probably have to move overseas for the rest of their lives.

    See, i Knew someone would probably do this. The democrats made Iraq and Bush such an emotional issue that its almost impossible to have a logical conversation about it. I linked a new york times article detailing the WMDs found in iraq. They existed. These weren't bottles of bleach. Stop being emotional and open your eyes.

    Iraq had WMDs but they were old, manufactured before 1991, but they still existed in corroded form. They did not have an active WMD program. but it could be reasonably assumed they could restart it at any time to supply terrorists. Bush had a political calculation to make in 2002 and early 2003: 1. Build up the military on the Iraq border, talk tough, but ultimately back down on the active WMD program point. In this scenario, the democrats begin to immediately attack him for being a wimp, for backing down, for being a frat boy unable to pull the trigger. The democrats will go on TV every day and say Saddam still has a chemical weapons stockpile (which he did) and that Saddam could sell them in some form to terrorists. Every terror attack in the future will include a LOOOONG line of democrats getting in front of a camera and wondering if the supplies used to perpetrate that attack came from Iraq. 2. Invade Iraq on the premise that he has a WMD stockpile and failed to fully comply with inspections, ignore the active WMD part. In this scenario, the democrats will ignore the issue of the old chemical weapon stockpile being sold to terrorists and attack Bush for not finding an active WMD program. It is very likely that a thorough search of Iraqi laboratories turns up evidence of some chemical weapon activity anyway making it a slam dunk. Without knowing how things played out, I think most people in Bush's shoes select option 2. Unfortunately, absolutely no evidence of any kind of active WMD program was ever found, and the democrats somehow managed to convince the public that no WMDs were found (which they were): https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/10/14/world/middleeast/us-casualties-of-iraq-chemical-weapons.html?_r=0

    Two socialist were talking

    Why do SJWs hate dentists? They want to make teeth straight and white.
  8. Its good stuff but, the 6 months we get of baseball is when life is good, and the 6 months of no baseball is soooooooo boring.
  9. It is not. What results in harm to the environment is lack of checks and balances. When there is no TRUE oversight committee, large scale damage can be done. This is why countries that lack freedom, like China today or the USSR in the past, committed the largest environmental disasters in human history. If you have a radical left wing government, and then a radical left wing media that protects and defends whatever the government does, you have no checks and balances. So that government is free to pollute or outright destroy the environment with impunity because the media won't report it. China caused widespread environmental damage with construction of dams. The USSR destroyed a massive ecosystem by draining lakes and diverting rivers, and had lax standards on radiation fallout leading to large areas contaminated. A free market economy is VASTLY superior for protecting the environment because there are checks and balances. The media will call out a corporation that violates environmental standards so its more careful not to.
  10. Actually this wouldn't happen because in this upcoming civil war, the media are going to be MILITARY targets. This is because so many people see freedom of the press being abused to corrupt everything. I think one of the very first things that happens in this civil war is most of the leftist media getting rounded up and simply vanishing.
  11. Keep in mind, the media is firmly against him, so every little misstep and error he makes is amplified 1000x. Obama would say and do strange things too, the media would just bury it or turn it around so that if you questioned it, you were a racist. Regardless, Trump's instinct on human behavior can be downright genius at times. Here are just a few bizarre quotes from Obama: "R-S-P-E-C-T." --flubbing the spelling of Aretha Franklin's famous song "Respect" while paying tribute to the iconic singer, New York, NY (March 6, 2014) "When I meet with world leaders, what's striking -- whether it's in Europe or here in Asia..." -mistakenly referring to Hawaii as Asia while holding a press conference outside Honolulu, Nov. 16, 2011 "We're the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad." —Cincinnati, OH, Sept. 22, 2011 "One such translator was an American of Haitian descent, representative of the extraordinary work that our men and women in uniform do all around the world -- Navy Corpse-Man Christian Brossard." –mispronouncing "Corpsman" (the "ps" is silent) during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Washington, D.C., Feb. 5, 2010 (The Corpsman's name is also Christopher, not Christian) "The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries." --Tampa, Fla., Jan. 28, 2010 "UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? It's the Post Office that's always having problems." –attempting to make the case for government-run healthcare, while simultaneously undercutting his own argument, Portsmouth, N.H., Aug. 11, 2009 You can argue that with the crap Obama says here, he is Forrest Gump too. But the media will roll their eyes at you and ignore it if you mock him for it.
  12. This British pundit is ready to overthrow capitalism to "save the environment". He has a movement apparently. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/apr/15/rebellion-prevent-ecological-apocalypse-civil-disobedience
  13. Actually the democrats should be forced to live in a community filled with illegal immigrants.
  14. Fair enough. We'll see! At this moment, I say Beto is the favorite though.

    Why do you buy Water? really?

    Human taste buds are finely tuned to be most receptive at room temperature. When you heat up or chill foods, it has the effect of dulling your taste buds, which for a lot of people make the taste less sharp and more palatable. Some people then complain it tastes bland and start adding room-temperature condiments to bring the flavor back.
