    Russia, Iran endorse Bush

    If you will not debate properly, then there is no point in continuing this. Either address my arguments point by point, or shut up.

    Russia, Iran endorse Bush

    Ah yes. Ignore my post, and attack me. How typical of you, when you know I'm right.

    Russia, Iran endorse Bush

    Weather or not Bushco accepted or even wanted the endorsement is irrelevent - the fact that they have expressed a serious preference for Bush is troublesome. quote: Republicans are NOT using scare tacticsCan you truly be so ignorant? What's all this "a vote for Kerry is a vote for the destruction of western society" rubbish that Cheney is spouting? Scare tactics, of course. quote: they are not trying to set up this election so that they can take it to court if they lose The left doesnt want it to have to go to the courts. quote: they are not sending 100's of thousands of voter registration cards in in order to overwhelm registars offices to such a point where they can't check them Ever heard of 'get out the vote'? That's what this is. I wont deny that a few of them are double registrants or whatever, but there are those sorts of people on BOTH sides of the fence. And also, methods used to deal with the torrent of registrants by Republicans in power (like Florida) or Republican-funded groups are rather worrisome. Like this, this, this, this, and this. Want more? There's plenty more GOP garbage floating around. quote: They are also NOT doing their best to take Nader to court in EVERY state to keep him off the ballot. Democrats are legally contesting Nader, winning some, and losing some. But of course you ignore what Republicans do, such as when Glenda Hood put Nader on Florida's ballot - against a court order not to, due to not having enough legitimate signatures. quote: I KNOW who the anti-democracy forces in this country are, and it sure ain't the Republicans. Wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.

    October 2004 All Insurgent Roll Call

    I've got a .txt file, dated June 4th, with the password for servers, 2, 3, and 4. I can PM you the password (its the same for all of them), if you want.

    October 2004 All Insurgent Roll Call

    Tried it again, this time, waiting longer then before, and lo & behold, it works. I guess I'm just too impatient. Takes like 10 to 15 seconds. I remembered it being less. Though on a side note, the registration page does not seem to have the password, just the current patch.

    October 2004 All Insurgent Roll Call

    I'm finally starting to come around. IE, my hiatus is over. I was even going to log in an hour or two online tonight, but the servers are refusing the password from june-july. Is there a new password or something?

    Citizen In Search of a Leader

    LIS: Your 'proof' is bogus. That newsmax article is similar to most right-wing propaganda, claiming a Al Qaeda-Iraqi link, jumping to conclusions. So one member of the Iraqi army was a member of Al Qaeda. Timothy McVeigh was a Bradley gunner, does this mean the U.S. bombed the Alfred P. Murrah building (AKA Oklahoma City bombing)? Lee Harvey Oswald was a Marine sharpshooter, does this mean that the American government ordered the assassination of Kennedy? Of course it doesnt. The affiliations of one person does NOT mean the entire group has the same affiliations. Freerepublic is me-tooing, conservative propaganda, and parroting whatever republican talking point happens to be the most prevalent. So there was another person affiliated with Al Qaeda, who was also in the Iraqi government. It's entirely reasonable to say that some people in Iraq were involved with Al Qaeda. But by no means does it prove that there was a concerted effort at the higher levels of the government to help Al Qaeda, like you're claiming.

    Here's another one.

    FreeAllegiance

    I had discovered it a few months ago through HOTU, and fell in love with it. Been spending a bit too much time on this, instead of UC. (sorry ShoHashi) Describing it, in a nutshell, is Freespace (with semi-newtonian physics) meets Starcraft. It's a space sim with a commander who basically plays the game like an RTS.

    September 2004 All Insurgent Roll Call

    Still here, still busy in the real world.
  12. So you only want to count the time serving on the swiftboat, Jag? Fine. That's still more then four months, yet, apparently you can't do basic math, as he served six months on the swift boat. Stop making yourself look like an idiot.
  13. Jaguar, when will you bother to look up the truth? Distorting history to belittle Kerry is so pathetic. But, since you are likely to just dismiss what I say, comfortable in your far-right belief and trust in Kerry-haters, I'll provide the truth for you. Kerry spent 10 months doing basic and officer training, like any other future naval officer. Then he spent four months on the USS Gridley, which spent time in the Gulf of Tonkin. Then another four months training for swift boat duty. After that, he served on a swift boat from November '67, to April '68. If you can do basic math, you'll see that this is more then just four months.

    Out of Kerry's Closet

    Kalshion. You're being just plain ignorant here. Ever hear of compression? You could easily compress your 45 gig file down to a gig or two, maintaining decent quality. and your 1 gig file? that could be dropped to like 50 megs. Now, I'm not an expert on video codecs, so these figures wont be exact. But I'm fairly certain you can drop the size by something like 90% with little reduction in quality. And uploading large files will damage a computer? ROTFLMAO. You truly have NO idea what you are talking about. It will take some HDD space, some RAM, processor time, and some bandwidth, but that is what it will take. And this is hardly damaging a computer. And your FTP provider saying you can't upload it? Again, ROTFLMAO. You mean your ISP, as FTP is a method of transferring files. And an ISP is not going to deny you the use of your bandwidth, unless you have a cap. Also, you would not need to put the file on an intermediary FTP server, it can be transmitted directly between yours and Takvah's (or whoever's) computers. Summary : You've been talking a load of bulls**t. But let's see the statement from your ISP saying that uploading a large file will damage computers. Since if they've really said something like that, it's obvious the person who said it has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. Likely a low-level tech support person.

    National Sales Tax considered

    National sales tax = totally idiotic. It would hit the poor HARD, as they spend a much greater percentage of their income on necessities like groceries, then the middle or upper classes. 10% of $50 is a lot more, when you've only got $15,000, compared to $50,000.

    Terror on the ground

    More fearmongering. Howard Dean sums it up quite nicely: "I'm concerned that every times something happens that is not good for President Bush, he plays his trump card, which is terrorism. His whole campaign is based on the notion that 'I can keep you safe, therefore in times of difficulty for America stick with me,' and then out comes Tom Ridge." And these warnings are useless for anything other then causing panic, a more useful warning would say something like "A reminder -- folks in the Citicorp building need to take extra notice of any vehicles or people hanging around. If you see someone who you don't know is authorized to be in the building, walk up, smile and ask 'May I help you?'" Also useful would be to actually force the evacuation of any buildings that are really so threatened, so that everyone who works there wouldn't be under pressure to negotiate their own safety with their employers (should I go in? Maybe I can call in sick? No, what if everyone should stay out, maybe we should all get together and then get permission as a group?) A "warning" that just boils down to "Orange alert! Woo woo! Worry a lot! Okay, now yellow alert! Don't worry so much!" serves no purpose.

    RA ROH Raggy!!!

    SAM engines in a Netherlands scrapyard, and some research on one bacteria species. And some demolished buildings. This is supposed to be evidence of WMDs smuggled to Syria...? Forgive me if I don't take a far-right "news" article with virtually no basis in reality at face value. Unlike you, I don't take things that support my position if they have no proof behind them. And change the thread title to something more relevant, Scooby-talk belongs on the TV show, not in a serious discussion forum.

  23. When will you get it, Jaguar? Profiling arabs will get some of them - i'm not denying that, but it won't get all of them. And only focusing on arabs will let every other terrorist through just fine, to blow up whatever. I didn't want to think so, but your obsession with only profiling arabs shows some real na├»vet├®. It's like going without any anti-tank rounds in a war. You can still do some, but you're helpless against something else. Note : Amazing how off topic this has become. Maybe split it off into another thread?
  24. Apparently Jaguar really doesnt understand how his beliefs will work in the real world. Profiling arabs will get some of the arab terrorists - and piss off the ~90% who have legitimate buisness. And it'l let all the non-arab terrorists through, just fine (and they'll switch to non-arab operatives, if we start profiling arabs, making it a moot point). Also, itl fill up Guantanamo in like 2 days. Which is going to cost a fortune. And they'll keep coming, if we keep dealing with them, using such heavy-handed policies. It's going to take a major policy shift, coming to an understanding with them (NOT giving in, mind you) to end the arab terrorist threat.
  25. Terrorism, defined by dictionary.com Terrorism, n The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons. Just because arabs may be the most likely to commit acts of terrorism, does NOT make them the only ones who commit acts of terrorism. Flying a plane into a building is NOT the only act of terrorism. Using force to intimidate, is terrorism. Bombing an abortion clinic as an attempt to get rid of abortion, is terrorism. Just because it doesnt fit your narrow definition of the word, does not make it so. The question here, is can YOU get real?
