Wait a minute. I thought the conventional wisdom was they couldn't be tried in the states because it would be a media nightmare, when they really wanted to do things on the QT.

Broadcasting their trials from Gitmo is NOT doing things on the QT. This makes no sense to me.

Posted in: Pentagon vows new measures in Okinawa after alleged rape See in context

Does anyone want to bet that the decision that will come down on high will actually cause things to get worse. All of the curfews just lead to resentment of the Japanese by some servicemembers. They need to forget about the curfew and get their Sailors off the ships and in apartments out in town. The more they interact with the Japanese, the better the chance for them to develop a sense of ownership of Japan. A lot will see they have a vested interest in keeping things safe in "their town."

Back in the days of old, there were no curfews and we were encouraged to interact with the Japanese as much as possible. Friendships were forged and the likelihood of doing something really stupid wasn't as great.

Locking Sailors on the base just increases their stress levels and causes some to feel resentment toward the Japanese.

There's no way anyone at the Pentagon is going figure that out. And they wonder why, with every new curfew or rule, things only get better for a short time before something really bad happens. Caging Sailors up on the base will not help one iota. In fact, it will lead to the next stupid decision made by a Sailor while drunk and off base.

And let's just dispel the myth that an earlier curfew will curb drinking. It doesn't matter what time the curfew is, an hour before it goes into effect, guys and gals will be pounding shots to get their drink on before they have to return to the base. The curfew encourages binge drinking.

If I saw that happening once, I saw it a thousand times.

May be China should start patrol near US coasts ? Why not ?

Why not? Because China's Navy doesn't have a vast history for humanitarian aid to other countries. The U.S. Navy does.

That answer your question?

This is no need for anyone to get their undies in a bunch. I'd wager the GW strike group will do an exercise before hitting some ports (most likely Hong Kong) to do some Christmas shopping. The U.S. Navy has been doing that for years.

Those liberal reporters. They're everywhere! In my closet; under my bed! They're coming for my victim card. Well, they can have it when they pry my victim card from my cold, dead body.

We've got several people playing the victim card now. Better not use it too much. It will get pretty dog-eared, you know.

Plus, the victim card kind of looses its umph when it's the only card you know to play. It invites ridicule.

Posted in: Biden comes out swinging in testy debate with Ryan See in context

I think it's pretty funny that conservatives looked at Mitt Romney interrupting Barack Obama, he was being "presidential."

When Biden interrupts Ryan, he's being "mean."

Is there such a thing as a conservative who doesn't play the victim card or prescribe to double standards?

They're like children in their terrible twos. It's all ME ME ME ME. And if they don't get their way, it's the media's fault.

I can't imagine what it must be like to live a life of ever ongoing conspiracies. Obama Derangement Syndrome has really taken hold of them and has them in its death grip. As they like to say about their guns, you can have their victim card when you pull it from their cold, dead bodies.

I think it's pretty funny that conservatives think Joe Biden was rude and mean to poor pitiful Ryan.

Yep, he's real mean guy, alright.

Remember when he told the senator to go fork himself on the floor of the Senate while in session? How about that time he shot his friend in the face and then had to be apologized to by said friend because that guys face happened to get in the way of Cheney's shot.

AND YOU CLOWNS THINK THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH BIDEN?

I knew there are a lot of people who are going to require years of intensive therapy to overcome their victimhood and put their Obama Derangement Syndrome behind them.

The ironic thing is, they'll be begging for Obamacare to take care of the costs of their mental health treatments. This IS the "keep your government hands off my medicare" crowd.

RomeoRamen. Here is what a poll from CBS, who surveyed self-identified uncommitted voters. They offered a different take than yours, with 50 percent saying Biden won compared to 31 percent who gave the night to Ryan. Nearly 1 in 5 said they felt it was too close to call. On the other hand, CNN did a poll and the results were that Ryan won, but because of a three point of uncertainty, statistically, it wasn't significant.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2012/10/11/vp_debate_polls_insta_polls_show_split_decision_in_vp_debate.html

Now I already know you are going to complain that CBS and CNN blatantly pander to the left. Much like your good buddy, Sailwind, it's all done in order victimize you.

Is there a single conservative on this site who DOESN'T play the victim card at every turn? JT should do a poll on it (of course, said poll would be just another liberal conspiracy to victimize Ramen and Sailwind, so you have to take that into account.

You caught us red-handed sailwind. You must be a great detective. You're right, the VP debates had nothing to do with the campaigns, the debate was there for the sole purpose of making you the victim. Yep, it's one of the most elaborate conspiracy this side of the JFK murder. You've got Biden and Obama giving the orders and the mainstream media acting as a sounding board.

All of that, just to pick on poor sailwind.

It must be difficult to live a life where you are always the victim. You're Charlie Brown and the whole world (except for Sarah Palin) is Lucy Van Pelt and we've once again pulled the football away at the last second.

I'm truly sorry you are such a victim. Victimized by the president. Victimized by the VP. Victimized by the debate moderator. Victimized by the main street media. Victimized because Sarah Palin isn't the VP. Whew, it's got to be tough being the world's biggest victim.

I'll have a candlelight vigil for you. Cho kawai so.

Once again, because it bears repeating: In reference to his debate performance, Factcheck.org referred to Romney as a "serial exaggerator."

Posted in: Romney turns in strong debate performance See in context

While Factcheck.org had instances where both President Obama and Mitt Romney were fast and loose with the truth however, in summary, they referred to Mitt Romney as a "serial exaggerator."

Mitt may have one the battle of the debate but the battle of the fact check is not going so well.

And here's something that doesn't make any sense to me. Romney wants to push a lot of programs down to the state level but he fails to explain how the states are going to pay for them. To my knowledge, North Dakota is the only state in the union with a budget surplus. Everyone else is in debt. Now they are going to have to pick up the costs of healthcare and education. Where does that money come from?

Also, pushing things down to the state level doesn't really work when there is so much inequality between the states. The deep south cannot bring in the money they need to run their states so to get by, they receive welfare from the North. California, Minnesota and North Dakota all pay for the south to run their businesses. Pushing federal programs down to the state level means very little cost increase for the deep south, because they don't pay their own way anyway. It would be very damaging to the north, however. Already, local taxes in Minnesota are through the roof and that money is leaving the state, and going into the coffers of the tittybaby south, who ironically, consider themselves all about personal responsibility.

I can only laugh.

If I were elected president, the first thing I would do is legalize and recognize the confederacy. If fact, I'd kick their deadbeat welfare mooching asses out of the United States because they are about as useless as tits on a manhole cover. It would be the best thing that ever happen to the rest of the United States. We'd still have our manufacturing sector, agricultural sector, technology sector and entertainment sector. Really, I can't think of a single good use for the South other than to be a buffer between Mexico and the North in the event Mexico attacks. The north doesn't need the south at all. The south has been sucking on the teat of the North since they lost the Civil War.

Bassforfunk,

You really crack me up. Are you from the South? I love the way stupid southerners talk about personal responsibility when their state is receiving hand-out money because they can't balance their budget.

OK, Mr. Individual Responsibility, Are you going to donate your money to your state? NOPE. You're going to sit on your arse and wait for your state to get more welfare money from the North.

Individual responsibility my ass. Bunch of parasites.

Here's what I don't get. Mitt says he knew all along that the stimulus package didn't work (which is wholly untrue and that he's had the answer for the economy.

Well, why was he such a selfish son of a gun, he decided to keep that knowledge to himself until the election. If you love your country as much as you say, you would have shared your secret formula for pulling getting the country running again.

I thought the same thing about John McCain. For years, he said he had the solution to the problems in the ME, but he wouldn't institute them until elected. Did he share that information with the president so that we can have safer country. Nope, he selfishly kept it to himself. His election and ego trumped the situation in the ME.

The truth of the matter is this: Mitt Romney is a douchebag. If you want a douchebag to lead the country, I'm inclined to think you might be a douche too.

Smitty, Regarding your last post, yeah, it's crazy how much the republicans want to obstruct Pres. Obama. There has been times when the republicans authored a bill that president Obama agreed with. As soon as they found out Obama was onboard, they change their stance, JUST TO BE CONTRARY.

These idiots will bite off their own nose just to spite their face.
