    And you know this how?

    Also, curious, how far would you like to turn back the clock?

    If I were you, I would choose someone who's actually dug a foxhole and knows how to establish shooting lanes.

    BTW....since you brought it up, how many foxholes have you actually dug?

    Cause I said so, and in my mind, that's all I need to know. Hooah?

    About 1940 would be good, when people actually took pride in what they did, and this country. Back before the dope smoking, rainbow coalition, hippy generation changed us into where we are headed now.

    Any more questions? I will have to answer later, because now I have to go be a productive member of society and help maintain this free healthcare system you guys want.

    Why would you think you know more about America than I do? Regardless, answer this question, what is it do you think, that has made America a great nation?

    Funny thing about the past. It always looks good through rose colored glasses. But if you look deep, you find they were no beter or worse than we are today. They had different problems; but every generation has had its issues.

    Third, if he had been tried in Africa, were he killed 284 people, they probably would have made him Lion food within about 30 minutes.

    And lastly, as for the waterboarding goes, I bet if the truth were ever told, we get more good intel from that than we do bad intel. Sometimes it's not who your torturing you care about, it's about who's watching him get tortured.
    First of all, I never said more than half were republicans. I said probably half were republicans and that is just a guess as the country is made up of republicans and democrats with some independents thrown in and I don't think the defense or prosecution attorneys polled the jurors and eliminated just the republicans from the jury.

    As far as waterboarding goes, I am willing to bet anyting that the CIA
    could get anyone to confess to anything if they were being torchered so the confession would be meaningless as far as I am concerned.

    I've dug a few foxholes, but thank God I was only ducking MILES lasers and not FMJs. It was eye opening to hear a real combat NCO talking of the considerations for digging a good foxhole and coordinating shooting lanes.

    And after all that, we make some awesome louisiana gumbo-clay domino sets in between swatting skeeters.
