"Well...You were right, but in the wrong way. It was a good thing to be at condition Yellow. You, however went to condition Orange in an uncareful way. You were aware something bad was possibly going down, but were detected by that…"
""...product designed to kill..."
Nice strawman argument ya got there. Did you get that off Ebay?
Got any others? Maybe you can tell us how owning a gun is a way of compensating for a small weiner? (I know women gun…"
"We had boots on the ground in Iraq. We told the bad guys when we were leaving, and they simply bided their time. The preezy o the steezy ran on getting the boots off the ground in Iraq. Recently he said leaving wasn't his…"
"I have yet to understand what a "common sense gun-law" even is.
When I hear them described, they always center around some new restrictions of the rights of those that already obey the law. They never seem to focus on…"
"So it's come to this... A Health Test.???
To exercise a civil right?
The same government that already claims we don't eat right and need to be told what to stuff in our faces is going to do this, right? They get to decide who or what…"
"Is that because motor vehicles kill far more people than guns?
Or for some other, nebulous reason?
(Pssst...in many states, it is harder to get a gun than a driver's license.)
In Maryland, you can be an illegal alien and get a DL. …"
"But you don't have to wait 7 days for certain types of cars because the government that is letting a licensed dealer sell you the car doesn't trust you to drive it off the lot. (Even if you bought cars before and met all the other…"
"I will take 1 through 3 as the main course, thank you very much.
I am not willing to "offer" anything as a bargaining chip. We have "bargained" enough on the Second Amendment. All it has gotten us is in…"
"I haven't seen a bulk box of my preferred ammo, the venerable .22 lr, in a very long time. I'm down to my bare minimum stock and can't shoot anymore without replacing it. 9 is finally coming back but finding my particular…"
"Cabela's wanted 35$ for a 50 round box of 230 grain .45 JHP... I remember paying 10-15$ for that stuff back in the day.
I've got a few reloading supplies, but I don't have a complete setup. Seeing that, which I didn't…"
"From what I understand about Trump's policy on this, it is to impose a tariff on them, which will lead them to raise the cost of their goods to pay said tariff, which will in turn just trickle down to costing the consumer more.
Not quite. We…"
"Now wait! By Systems Engineering the course structure where i am taking it is about things like requirements writing, test and verification risk assessment, and system modeling. Are we talking about the same systems engineering?
Also my electives i…"
Alright, so I know I posted a whiny thread a while back, but now I'm working on getting ahead in my life, and I have some questions.I'm quite sure I'm going back to school by the Fall semester at the Community College I was attending before, and I am really interested in funneling my interest in science and invention towards entering the program to transfer to my state's university for the engineering programs there.I've noticed that quite a few guys around here are engineers, or engineering…See More
"It has to appear as a hard line. And sometimes might become one. Look what he did with Fox in January. He got up from the table. He doubled down. He walked away. They started calling him within 24 hours. Hannity was begging him on air. O'Reilly…"
"For most of our history we followed an economic strategy identical to what Trump is proposing. It's called the "American School of Economics" and it had five key elements: support of industry, physical infrastructure, economic…"
"Manipulation of currency though is a whole other matter, and we are already seeing that bit China in the ass. The World Bank won't let them in and the Chinese workforce has already started to shift. Eventually they won't be…"
"Is it to take advantage of lesser powers? I'd think maybe it was to keep them in check "initially", thinking of Japan and Germany specifically, but do those objectives even hold water anymore in this day and age?"
"See that doesn't seem like such a hard line to me anymore, and your suggestion to read his books to help me understand his positions now seem more clear to me.
