    Where did you go to college?

    The bolded part of your message makes me think I'm dealing with a student of William Shakespeare perhaps?

    [QUOTE=Warfish;2805007]I wonder how Barrack H. Obama would have done in the Naval Academy at that point in his life.

    I wonder if he listed his race on his application at Occidental College, and what effect that had.[/QUOTE]

    Still beating the reverse racism drum ehh? I don't get it.

    Can't you see AA's have had it and continue to have it much worse the us crackers?

    (and no, I don't support Affirmative Action)

    Yea what's really funny is your avatar was done in satire, but apparently you took it as fact.

    And guess what chiefy, you're "Obamunism" dig at Obama, you know that thing you feared so much, that dirty word, SOCIALISM... it just happened two weeks ago.

    It was done because a Republican president was clamoring for it.

    You must be crying yourself to sleep every night.

    [QUOTE=Das Ken;2804962]It may be that I'm still in school and others are not, but am I the only one who remembers who got the best grades?

    It was rarely the most intelligent, for they were smart enough to do the least amount of work possible to get an ok grade.

    No, it was the annoying, kiss ass, supposed know-it-all who got all the A's and cried and pouted whenever they got less than a (omgz!) 90 on a test. I still have to sit around them for a few hours every day and whenever they raise their hands to "add" something or, and this is the best, try to correct the teacher because they think they are far more informed, I want to strangle them.

    Point being made, grades and class rank aren't everything. In fact, they aren't anything. If you were one of those kids who complained when a test got curved or spent their entire high school/college career studying on the weekends, I hope for your sake you got that stick removed. Back on topic, it is/has been widely known that McCain wasn't exactly the hardest worker in school. He messed around, got tons of demerits though I think he turned out alright. But yea, we should definitely start having requirements for running for President... like a degree from Harvard. That's a must. And editor of the law review; how anyone could not have that on their resume and expect to be elected I'll never know.[/QUOTE]

    With High School, you're right. But as one of those people who skirted by doing the absolute minimum with a B average, I can say I only wish I was smart enough then to actually work for that A in college. Most of the ones who did are the real smartest ones.

    You cannot compete with me. I graduated with an Associates Degree from Camden Community College in Camden NJ with a 4.0 GPA in Minority Studies. Furthermore, I was class treasurer and a prominent member of the Key Club. You are not of my pedigree.

    did you watch the dem convention? did you watch his lead in lfe accomplishment video? did you see any mention of his time at either columbia or harvard? of course not. e apparently went diectly from being a basketball plaer in high school to community organzer and then on to the prez candidate of the dems. call it editing his accomplishments so that he didn't seem so elitist or anything else. the fact that his colligiate records have not been released should be troubling. is he hiding something? most people would be proud of there accomplishments. moreover, the boy spent 12 years at teh u of chicago law school as a professor!!! he was offered tenure!!! do you also realize that he didn't publish a single paper on his chosen profession or legal decision!!!!! this in an industry where you must publish or perish. he did nothing. just what the heck made him entitled to get all he did?? in his book he describes himself as having overcome the temptations of drugs. is this guy for real??? like he was the only one but did the others get a chance to go to columbia or harvard?

    the guy is dirty. he comes from the chicago machine and i believe he was installed there shortly after he left columbia and before he entered havard. there is way more here than meets the eye.[/QUOTE]

    As someone who actually went to law school, I can tell you that your quote is categorically false.

    obama has also criticised mccain for his divorce. again, mccain suffered greatly during the war. those guys just don't come back right. it takes time to work all that horror out. [B]maybe his ex-wife didn't have the patience or understanding. t[/B]hese things happen and obama should thank his lucky stars that guys like mccain have served for centuries bailing asses like obama out all over the planet.

    as for obama's scholastic record? nobody knows. he's not telling so it be very well that boy barack was also an anchorman. i'll tell you what. after hearing him speak in the last two debates it's plenty obvious to me that the guy is a dope. he is not only very ignorant of the facts but he can't even [B]ariculate [/B]them very well.[/QUOTE]

    maybe she just got tired of him cheating on her? thoughts.......

    and fyi~ you cant dumb your way through harvard son, I'm sorry but it just doesn't work that way. For all of his other VALID faults, intelligence isn't one of them.


    and what is "ariculate"

    Dude are you seriously questioning his education? I have been reading your posts and they just make no sense. It's a lot of "I cant figure it out but I don't like him. I don't know what it is but I can feel it"

    I know what it is, too many like you wont admit it conscientiously but it's his race, point blank, period. Of course if you blatantly admit racism then the rest of your argument sounds biased so you shroud your argument about his education (silly I might add) in innuendo and "what if's".

    I dont like Obama, I wont vote for him but it's for better reasons than you stated. That's just plain ignorant.

    I wonder how race SOMEHOW entered a conversation about education. Never fails to happen here.

    [QUOTE=sameoldjets;2805061]answer 1: if you are talking about a legacy versus an afirmative action then not. however, the election isn't about a legacy vs an afirmative. it's about one candidate who has a body of accomplishment, has served his country and nearly made the ultimate sacrifice versus the classic empty suit who is incapable (or at least handled) of being proud of his accomplishments (which means he probably doesn't have any) and has some serious subversive leanings. john mccain served to allow people like obama to be able to have their say without any threats of censure or imprisonment.

    answer 2: at the risk of making a bad generalization i would say that affirmative action beneficiaries are people of different cultural backgrounds thanthe [B]average american[/B].[/QUOTE]

    What does that mean to you my friend?

    And boy am I tired of hearing about his military service. It has NOTHING to do with his qualifications to be president. I used to love McCain based purely on his approach to politics but his temper, his sudden change in policy, his almost idiotic choice for VP and his poorly run campaign have given me serious pause.

    For all of Obama's faults, he has run an effective campaign, has made a good selection for VP, has come up with a economic plan that is fairly livable and has inspired americans. (Actually McCain's plan has a lot of good points also) just purely based on this alone he is winning. His affiliation with someone who was a radical before I was born but who is now a prominent college professor isn't relevant either frankly. That chicago political "machine" you refer to has given us a lot of presidents huh? How many so far? More nonsense........

    You better blow that shyt out son..........life is too short.

    So I guess any"dude" voting for obama has to be black right? and of course any "dude" voting for McCain has to be white correct? otherwise people might actually be voting based on their policy standpoints.

    good point

    [QUOTE=sameoldjets;2804957]ooo aren't we being pc. what word can one use when describing someone as inexperienced? green behind the ears? (he couldn't even get that one right. the real term is wet behind the years. but maybe the live birth abortions he has helped murder were green behind the ears and he had a flashback)[/QUOTE]

    Sorry, but you're just looking for a fight, and you frankly don't have the weapons to do so. A disjointed, rambling, empty argument in which you clearly have no clue what you're talking about is hardly making a case for your candidate. Being offensive doesn't make your case either. You might well take the advice of Falstaff: "The better part of valor is discretion." Time to retreat before you really make a complete fool of yourself and get banned. :rolleyes:

    Can't you see AA's have had it and continue to have it much worse the us crackers?

    (and no, I don't support Affirmative Action)[/QUOTE]

    First, the word "Cracker" as an racial epithet is not appropriate. I don't care if some of you think using racial slurs against whites is ok, it isn't, end of story.

    Second, I'm sorry you choose to see the world in generalizations and sterotypes when it comes to "not getting it".

    Let me give you specifics: My family was first generation immigrants, as poor as poor comes, with a father who worked three jobs including cleaning up **** as a janitor.

    My good friend? He lived in Great Falls VA. Look it up if you're not familar with the income levels required to live in that area.

    But sure, your generalizations sure do trump my specifics. I guess since folks like me, who had zip, zilch, nada to do with slavery in any form, should still be the ones to pay the price anyway, eh?

    I believe AA's continue to have it much worse then whites, and while I don't believe this is reason enough for things like Affirmative Action, I find the constant expressions of jealousy over it to be curious.

    If they have it so great, would you switch places and have been born into a poor black family instead of a poor white family? If you would, you are in the vast minority, if not, then I don't know what you're complaining about all the time?? Even most chowd trolls were able to allow us Jets fans our fleeting moments of glory when they were on top.

    Exactly Warfish, My dad grew up in Nothern NY his parents died when he and his brothers were just young kids, the oldest got a job with the Postal Service and provided for his younger brothers. He didn't accept hand outs unlike some today who think it is an entitlement! I thank him everyday that he is my father!
