That's the problem; they don't want to work together to find a common term; it's one extreme over the other. I rather not spend millions on tanks but nothing goes to war vets.

So that's why I look at all the views and see what appeals to me.

@Rondo: in this world due to the demand of humans people do what they have to do to get by. Which shows that all humans are the cause of all other human's problems without caring or being aware of it. That's why some people drink energy drinks and energy shots. The young people.....I have no idea. Maybe its the yolo.

I agree. There are cuts that can and probably should be made in the defense budget. There are redundant bases that can be closed. There's a ton of "feel good" projects that could easily be cancelled (does the military really need a diversity outreach program?). The decision should be made on what the military needs--more ships, newer planes, etc.--rather than what wins votes. Right now, my home state of Montana is facing the loss of a fighter wing that has defended the "northern tier" for 60 years, in favor of a transport wing Montana doesn't need or want. The reason why is because Dianne Feinstein wants the fighters in California--despite the fact that California already has fighters.

I think you're on the money, DS. Republicans can and sometimes do take the defense budget to extremes. Some Democrats have this tendency towards seeing it as either a piggy bank or as a social engineering experiment. Why not ask the military what it needs and go with that?

I rather not have snow. All you people that want snow do you drive or take public transportation or work at all? You know how much hell it is to go to work in a snowstorm? It's not like how it was in the school days; the really bad snowstorm in Chicago a few years back that was near 10 inches? Had to work in that.

That makes me not want to use credit cards but due to society trying to omit real cash it's getting hard, since buying stuff in stores is becoming a pain in the butt lately. Well for me.

And I laughed at the Church's chicken.

We barely get any snow down here during winter. It snows maybe once or twice. The snow is on the street for a day or two, then it is gone.

Through there was this weird storm a couple of years ago that dropped not snow, but solid ice.

Because it was snarky, condescending, and insulting. Which is politics, true...but IMHO Obama didn't look presidential. Several pundits--both liberal and conservative--have said that Obama looked like he was the one running for office, not Romney. That's not a smart move for someone who's falling behind in the polls. It might fire up the liberals, but those aren't Obama's target audience. Liberals are going to vote for Obama no matter what (just as conservatives are going to vote for Romney). Independents will decide the election, and they might see that comment as being schoolyard bullying. Nobody likes a bully.

The other problem is, it shows Obama not understanding the military either. We actually use horses a lot in Afghanistan, and bayonets have been used in combat frequently--I don't know about Afghanistan currently, but I do know they were used in Fallujah in 2004. The comments on the Navy also betray a general lack of knowledge. Yes, we have carriers and submarines, but cruisers and destroyers, along with support vessels, ensure that the carriers can survive on a modern battlefield. Right now, with the sequestration cuts, the Navy is scheduled to retire four Aegis-class cruisers capable of shooting down ballistic missiles...which seems like a really dumb idea when we might need those to knock down Iranian or North Korean (or, God help us, Chinese) ballistic missiles.

The Navy is going to feel those cuts, and Obama's condescending attitude towards the Navy--asserting that we don't need a very big Navy, which is patently untrue--may hurt him. Obama needs Virginia in his win column, and there were a lot of Navy personnel and shipyard workers who heard Obama's comments last night. Those people live in Norfolk, VA.

So yes, it was a burn. If Obama was debating Romney on Facebook, it would be worthy of a like. But he just made a horse's rear of himself on national TV scoring a point that can now be used against him (just think of the Romney ads painting Obama as not knowing what the hell he's talking about militarily), and that burn could cost him. It could cost him the election. Biden made no friends acting like the drunk uncle last week. We'll see.

At least we've only got 10 days to gripe about the election (and four years to gripe about who gets elected!).

I don't understand why someone would purposely set themselves on fire.

Didn't answer the other two questions. Trust me if you have to work 5am and there is a bizzard you wouldn't want to stand around waiting for a bus to get to your job two hours away. So I wouldn't wish snow even if I was being sarcastic. Bad voodoo. I'm paranoid I know.

Although most people who seem to like extreme snow have a car. Or are kind of off.

Depends how bad we're talking. Aspen/Snowmass stays on top of it because that drives business, but there have been few instances I dreaded working after massive snow. Probably once or twice.

Your views change when you are actually dependent on "bad" weather.

Quote

the really bad snowstorm in Chicago a few years back that was near 10 inches?


This is not a question? I had to stay overnight in a room at my hotel for that. Was pretty nice, but I think I was overly tired or sick that day, so I was relieved at noon the next day and roads were clear. Overall an enjoyable experience. Free movie passes.

I could live with snow..if it happens on a weekend. 20-25 minute commutes home turning into 2-3 hours commutes home is not my cup of tea.

Here come Hurricane Sandy...er, Frankenstorm. I still think it'll push out to sea with a brush up against the cost near NC.

^ That was pretty much my point to Kirby. Even snowplowers have it hard, considering that they have to go through and clear back alleys, or the city doesn't even bother. I seen plowers get stuck in snow. That's not fun when you have to leave your truck someplace and you don't get overtime.

I remember when there was 10-20 inches and most of my apartment was back alleys and cars were just stuck. Everything was closed. Bad case would be that someone would become gravely ill and have to go to the hospital; couldn't happen because of the snow as well as a lack of bus service, cars were literally gone in snow.

But that was here. I don't know if other states had to deal with ghost towns.

Montana broke a national record. Apparently the only commercials we have are political ones. And they suck. C'mon guys, you're spending millions! Couldn't you get some decent CGI or something?

No attempt to secure the geek vote either. We need anime characters stumping for candidates.

I just wish they'd stop calling. I got a call at 6AM the other day (yes, that's illegal, but good luck reporting it because they've all got fake phone numbers. : /)

I have to wonder, do these campaign calls actually do anyone any good? They're certainly not making me like anybody any better.

Still report it, fake or not, and tell them to put you on the don't call list. Proper prevention helps against people who think that someone not doing anything is a weakness or a sign to keep doing it.

Some ignorant people do believe these ads so they reach out to those kinds of people.

Sure not the people running. Maybe the stations that host them?

I always wonder "who," gets paid to do and run these ads?

You know what would get them more votes? If they actually spent all that money on relief efforts or charity and the like. Then juat have one had of them saying, "Hello, This will be the only ad you see of me. Why? I just took the millions of dollars for tv ads that don't actually help the economy and put it into ________. Because I care. /end.

That would be pretty good. Romney did donate some of his funds and campaign vehicles to Sandy relief. (Obama didn't because, well, he's the President. FEMA handles that for him.)

The thing is, the candidates themselves only buy about 1/3 of the ads. PACs and other interest groups, or the parties, buy the rest. Out here, I'd say Planned Parenthood runs at least half the ads for Senator Tester.

There is one woman running for state attorney general in Montana who ran only an op-ed in the paper. She stated she didn't accept money from either party, because she believes the AG of a state should be nonpartisan and not influenced by party ties. That gained her my vote.

Heh. This is kinda interesting:

What Your Favorite TV Show Says About Your Politics

So, if you're on the left side of the political spectrum, you probably like American Dad, Big Bang Theory, Star Trek, and Jersey Shore (!). If you're on the right, you like NCIS, Deadliest Catch, and Ghost Hunters (?!).

That's kind of true. I'm pretty much on the right, and NCIS and Deadliest Catch are my two favorite shows. But here's the weird part: liberals love Game of Thrones and Walking Dead--two other of my top 5 shows. (Top Gear rounds out my top 5 list.)

Hmm. I'm confused now...

Wut. Shouldn't it be the reverse? My mom loves NSCIS, Deadliest catch, numbers, etc. and she's left side all the way.

Long story about this avatar: I was looking for Miku ramen pictures (due to an interesting picture I found from jlist,) and I found this user on pixiv. I was curious since the icon they had was cool.

Let's say I seen things I shouldn't had. Thank goodness I'm used to weird stuff.

Just don't ask how bad it was; it was bad but not in the sense you might be thinking, like guro. Just "Wut."

Miku's my background right now. I too encountered many "wut" pictures.

I didn't know she was that flexible...

Then you took an arrow to the head.

Or maybe the girls did.
