I agree with Newt's premise, but I disagree about demanding an apology. We will never get an apology from any so-called moderate Muslim for their religion causing the burning down of churches full of people. I say we should just laugh at them and say we have nothing to apologize for. Take your bassackwards thinking and shove it up your arse.
Go Newt! It was exciting to hear him in person in WA state...We had a good crowd and we are all very excited for Newt!
Newt is the only man in this race with a good game plan...
I believe it is time to install the Peace of Carthage, to this wayward, and hospitable country. Burn and salt the poppy fields. Pull out of Kabul to a distance of 30 miles, which is just beyond the horizon level of the Earth, and napalm Kabul, starting with Karzai's residence.
When Perry dropped out of the race I then supported Newt. He has the wisdom and knowledge to lead our country during these troubled times. I like Santorum as well, especially his stand on the social issues, and if he is the nominee I will support him.
I've been contemplating the idea for sometime now that Newt is quietly waiting in the wings, for a third comeback.
Wowee scowee! Lots of great posts on this page from great folks.
Newt. He's the rootinest, tootinest, Newtonist, shootinest, scootinest, high-falootinist, barack-butt bootinest... Aaahahahaha.
Shut up Rs. OK.
Yup folks - this is the guy who's carrying the big stick. I've got no major problems with Rick Santorum, but Newt is the only one who consistently takes it to Barry, calls out the right enemy and provides a solution.
I found it interesting that the day after the last debate, Billo in his diatribe (I mean monologue), said that during the debate not one, NOT ONE, candidate brought up any of the major issues against Obama. I guess he just didn't notice Newt (I know, they are in the tank for Romney).
Also, after the debate, one of the leftie analysts said Newt did a pretty good job 'but, of course, wasn't in the center seat'. WHAT! So only the center seat meant anything to them?
I noticed that as well, I actually threw my daughter's stuffy at the t.v....er not my most mature moment, but to be so obtuse and blindly rant about how no one took it to Obama, got my blood a'boiling!
This is what a president is supposed to sound like. Nobody else in the GOP race can equal Newt in his breadth of knowledge and ability to communicate in clear concise statements. The man is brilliant ... and is the only one who could enter the WH running.
All the rest ... but especially Santorum would be doing on the job training, and would thus be open to establishment manipulation on a massive scale.
I have been praying and believing that Newt would rise again. After his defeat in Florida, I was depressed, but when he spoke afterward..I was inspired again. I just knew that he would come back. He has been dismissed and cast aside and all the pundits who have a short memory said he was out for sure...well Newt is doing what he does best..rising from the ashes.
Yall... Watch the highlights from the debate Tues!
I did this morning when I got off work. It was so good.
Made me sleep like a baby all day.
Like others have said on this site before....the thought of Newt as President gives a feeling of security and HOPE.
Thanks for the link. I listened to the debate but it was great to hear the "adult in the room" schooling everyone with solid (and cheerful) responses.
I hope he is serious about returning power to the states because my biggest worries about him revolve around his statements that he is a Wilsonian progressive. I don't want him reverting to the big gov't mentality.
I will be happy to vote for Santorum or Newt and, in fact, he might just be the pit bull we need. :)
Hide your face in shame all who voted for the first Muslim President.
It's not very complicated. Think of the Duck Theory: "If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it is a duck"
The Muslim Theory: If he was born a Muslim, celebrates holidays and dinners with Muslims, supports The Muslim Brotherhood, bows down to a Muslim King, and quotes from "The Holy Koran", then he is a Muslim.
I'm glad you spoke out Newt, the only ANNOUNCED candidate to do so at this posting! But I have to tell you, Mr. Speaker, that Sarah Palin blasted his a$$ YESTERDAY, shortly after Obama spoke!
Why does it take so long for those actively SEEKING the office of President to speak out? How is it that she instinctively knows what to say and when to say it while the others are still 'drafting' their remarks?
Once again, Sarah Palin leads from the front and the others just follow along after. Yet another reason that the four leftovers aren't capturing the publics attention.
It's all good. Consider that Newt is a bit busy running a major campaign. Even though Palin hasn't endorsed Newt, it is easy to see she supports him and this clip is one reason why. Husbands who are as close to their wives as Todd Palin is don't just "go rogue" with their endorsements. He delivered and I don't care who said it first ... and I am a Palin fan.
That's great and awesome! Anyone have a link to the whole speech?
I also just heard his 30 minute talk on energy? It was perfect! Here is the link:
I got that in my e-mail this morning as well. It's worth the 30 minutes to listen to it. And he did it without a teleprompter or notes.
Full speech about 30 mins.
You tell 'em Newt!
Can you imagine what Newt would do to Barry in an actual debate between the two of them? Get the media out of the room and let the two of them explore issues of actual importance and not this silliness we've seen so far. Independents would surely see the lies and arrogance of Obama contrasted with gravitas and boldness of Gingrich.
There is no such thing as "Radical Islam." Radical Islam is an oxymoron. Islam is Islam and that's it. In the words of a young canibal friend of mine who just got back from the 7th century pest hole that is Afghanistan: "No one can help those people. Islam IS the problem. We should just leave and nuke the place on the way out".
Funny you should mentions nukes. I was thinking just the other day about what kind of force we should use against the Iranians. It's not to early to talk about this. I mean they have given us a good reason for an attack and, like Obama's little boy Rohm always says, "Never let a good crisis go to waste.
Then I recalled the Neutron Bomb, that's the one Jimmy Carter liked:
"Also called ENHANCED RADIATION WARHEAD, specialized type of small thermonuclear weapon that produces minimal blast and heat but which releases large amounts of lethal radiation. The neutron bomb delivers blast and heat effects that are confined to an area of only a few hundred yards in radius. But within a somewhat larger area it throws off a massive wave of neutron and gamma radiation, which can penetrate armor or several feet of earth."
I think a hundred of these would send the right to Islam. We could rename it the "Islamabomb." You can fire such weapons from modest sized artillery-- 8"/200mm. They Navy could deliver the shells before lunch from destroyer in the Persian gulf and Obama could write the apology.
I think I'm starting to like the neutron bomb approach- they're just a lot more personal than Bunker Busters and nuclear warheads.
One other thought comes to mind. Firing a nuke from a howitzer is a suicide mission. Even with a "RAP" projectile, the crew is still too close to the impact area. Back when I was a No2 man on an M110 (200mm/8in) we would practice such scenarios and we figured out that we were way too close to the impact area 16,800 meters away. A rocket-assisted projectile would impact 30,000 meters away. Still too close, especially if the wind shifted suddenly. Air dropped munitions are much better.
If I'm not mistaken we got rid of all our artillery-born nukes. They were all the rough eqivalent of a Hiroshima bomb.
Just a little info for ya. :p)
Drones are a seperate issue. We were talking about something else. Your comments in light of the subject matter being discussed, are absurd. You wouldn't be a liberal would you? Never assume anything about folk. You'll only make an arse out of yourself. My last MOS was 11C40 what was yours? And that was a migration from 13Fox and 13 Bravo. So either provide a better data set than mine and stick to the points that were being laid in this discussion or go to another thread as the topic seems way over your head.
Sorry, I was talking about guns, you seem to be talking about all the fireworks you may or may not have seen. A drone will carry anything, better and further than artilliary. Yeah, shooting a cannon is fun, but if you want really want to send some ordinance, you use airborne power, just like the man said. But, no matter what you use, the marines still have to clean up the mess, with rifles and pistols .
I was responding to old outdated info with actual experience and knowledge. What are you talking about? You seemed to have missed the point.
We opted not to make neutron bombs and we're fresh out of 200mm howitzers, We gave them all away. I believe the last 8 inch unit replaced their M110's with 109's (Paladins) back in the early 90's.
Great idea, but we would need to build those weapons first. That 100 megaton air dropped nuke that Herr Ayatollah Ali Obama just had destroyed would have been more than sufficient, depending on wind speed and direction to take out Afghanistan and the western Paki provinces too.
Just like ballistics are way over your head. Ob is destroying American weapons, from the top down. Did you object, in any way, when the big bomb was dismantled? I opine not.
OMG. That sounds beautiful. I trained on the 175 and 8". Spent three years as a No2 man in an 8" Battery as part of the old 3rd Armored Division. Nuclear arty was our business as we were (in the Cold War against the Soviets) at the tip of the spear. That type of weapon came in real handy in 1973 when the Soviets started moving their heavy armor towards the "Neutral Zone" and pushed their border posts inside the DMZ in Fulda.
Prettiest thing I ever saw was a 424 round, Charge 7 White Bag that was fired with wet powder. The whole ground shook, the ground actually cracked and the flame that shot out at night must have been visible for many clicks. That was pure power on display.
We had an 8" SP in our front yard that would lift you off your bunk when lit and a beautiful 175mm across the street that sprayed unburnt cordite on the tin roof of the hooch. Sounded like manna from heaven on a dark night in An Loc. Guess I'm a little dated in my arty, Infidel. Thanks for the update!
Which has to do with what exactly? Can you do better than a monosyllabic nonsensical response? Or is the subject matter discussed here just over your head?
Sobering and accurate.
The are two steady states in an islamic country: brutal dictatorship or brutal sharia theocracy. Everything else is a state of transition.
