Message 1138666 - Posted: 10 Aug 2011, 23:43:18 UTC - in response to Message 1138628.

I've read Carl Sagan's Contact. Bet most SETI Crunchers can't say that. Wanna Bet on that Prof?

I do not place bets.
I read it before it was made into a movie.
As the book/movie has come up before, there is at least 1 more than the 2 of us who have also read it.
Upon what do you base your generlization?
(Note: I grew up about 30 miles from Ithaca, where Cornell is, and saw Carl Sagan speak twice in person while I was in middle school aka junior high.)
But, we can go tit-for-tat on these things, taking your own thread further off topic. :)

Plus, The Duke was A Shootist. Continuation of 2 Wars. But mostly, authorizing Strikes(Shooting) against Libya and Others. Hence, Duke Attribute, again.

At any point, did you support the wars in Afghanistan or Iraq? I'll bet there's a good chance you did.
As for Libya, 1988 or so, "A message to terrorists everywhere. You can run, but you can't hide." "Today, we have done what we had to do. He counted on America to be passive. He counted wrong." (Or something like that.) Who said it? About whom?

Hint: At 4:56, here the voice of the quotee.. You will certainly recognize it.


"Hear," that is.
So, shall we talk Libya? Which president? Good for goose, good for gander?
Effects on economy?

That was Iraq. I asked if you wished to discuss Libya further.
Barry, I can name you 3 Norwichians right off the bat.

Message 1139903 - Posted: 13 Aug 2011, 4:46:01 UTC

Shock and Awe is a Generic Term used for any 1st World Country Raining Down Destruction from The Heavens upon Defenses with No Chance.

Man 'O Live, The Duke sure Wowed them in Michigan. I listened to The Whole Speech and The Change Agent was On Fire. The Peace Prize Potus is in Election Mode for sure.

He ended The Speech with His Patented Cresendo of Emotion. You know, how he did with Every Election Speech to Become Da Potus. The Zombiedizing Emotional Peaking which Creates The Hynotizing Action when Presented with The Ballot.

Goodness Gracious and Good Goodly Moogly, The P-man sounds like Dubya and Slick Wille had a Baby.

Or like Slick Wille doing a Dubya Impression.

Save Me Lord!

Since The P-Man has Invoked GOD, The P-Man will Not Get My Vote if it goes that far. No Contender Who Invokes GOD gets My Vote. Therefore, I usually Do Not Vote.

I voted For Perot and Nader. Can't remember if they Invoked GOD. Perot probably did. But that was Before I Decided on No Vote For GOD Invoke.

Can you Dig it? I knew that you could.

Of course I also Do Not Vote for Anyone Who Panders To Certain Groups. hehehe

Fair Enough.

But. I can have all The Opinions and Views as any Other Human/ET and can Express Them as any Other Human/ET.

And what I have written for this Thread and Other Threads are My Opinions and Views.

Call them Complaints if you wish.

As far as Voting, far Better Minds in Disciplines from Political Science to Philosophy have said A Citizen Need Not Vote to Express Their Opinions, Views, and Complaints.

We all need a none of the above choice. Loose to none of the above and your name can never appear on a ballot again.

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, Job.

The Vaunted New Green Company Praised by Potus Going Under. Solyndra. 1100 more Jobs Down The Drain. DOE $500M Down The Drain. Photo Op on Solyndra Mfg. Floor picture collecting dust.

Yep, Most People starting to feel like Job. Trials and Tribulations galore.

And Peace Prize Potus NOT THERE to Help.

Sure, Another Speech Coming. About Jobs. Again. And Again. And Again.

Job aka The People. Your Pain is Felt. You know, like Slick Willie felt it.

Only by Pure Luck, Willie Prezed during a The Final Peak of A Business Cycle.

Change is A Coming America. Change from Your Dollar to Their Dollar.

And you get Cents.

Cents is Coming America. Dollar to Cents.

Will Potus mention in His New, Shiny, 'Let's Get The Future Going' Speech The Solyndra Debacle. Naw. Nary a Word.

No one owes you a job.
No one should look to a President to get him or her a job.
Get off your duff.
Put out more applications.
Do things to improve your resume, such as better your education.
Quit being a whiny worm, claiming he hates Democrats and then wants the democratic President to provide jobs, when he know Reagan's mantra "Government doesn't create jobs." Quit being a whiny worm and become a man.

$793,447,624,760 approx cost of war in iraq
It is said our involvement in Libya may soon approach
$001,100,000,000.

I would say Obama is a heck of a bargain shopper!
If we can just clear the dead weight from congress,
we should be able to actually get some things done.

Oh I did catch part of a debate in the senate, John McCain vs. another
senator(democratic). It was refreshing to watch an intelligent, respectful exchange.
