    I never heard of that one. I don’t know a lot about the ins and outs of the pacific theatre. I’ve heard enough from all sides to convince me that it suuuuuuuuccckked.

    Retreating Japanese soldiers went through the mangroves swamp.  The blood and screams atttacted crocs.  Almost all died.  Soldiers reported hearing the distant screams of the Japanese getting eaten alive all night.

    "Demand" is great but what exactly underpins that demand?  For a house, it is that you either want to live there or you want to rent it to someone else.  Who demands a house that nobody wants to live in?  What happens where there are a lot of houses nobody wants to live in at the price offered?  

    Now if a flourishing middle class and aspirational working class is driving demand, that is one thing.  Do we see evidence of that?  To me it seems like cheap credit and looser lending standards has allowed people to have "fake advancement" where they get a big house with lesser down and lower payments than in the past.  

    To me it seems like Americans are addicted to credit and credit is what is driving home prices.

    In Boise right now you better have a cash offer above asking price if you want a home.

    I'm still trying to figure out how we got from wearing a goddamned mask to the comparisons to Japanese internment. 

    A democrat brought up WW2 comparisons?

    They have a habit of doing that.  Hitler, Stalin, Fascism, Nazis and so on

    Not probably, definitely. That generation fought the enemy in crocodile infested swamps. A bloody resistance in their own streets would have been much more horrible than the disgrace that did occur.

    OT- do you think Ramree island really went down that way?  Crazy.

    I find that hard to believe. I'm not saying it couldn't happen, but I find it highly unlikely. I was at the 2007 game (that was the first game Kap came in) and I didn't see that and I was right in front of where the drum major would have been and I don't recall seeing that. There's a fence that runs the length of the field that would make that very difficult. I smell another BadWillHunting/grandmother story here. 

    Seems credible to me.  Trying to stop a drunk Nevada fan from an act of violence is like trying to control the tides.

    I really doubt it. If the government is committed to putting you into camps for possibly being foreign agents of a nation that sneak attacked us, and the rest of the people are pretty cool with that, racial militias are going to look more like a 5th column than minute men.

    Maybe.  Woud there still have been the will to do it if it meant armed resistance?  Probably.

  7. If the Japanese all had tricked out tommy guns and organizes into militias they government probably thinks twice about rounding them up and sending them to camps.

    Those who don't learn from history may end up repeating.  It is your civic duty to own several scary black guns!

    UNLV is way too irrelevant to be obsessed with... it's just a few of their fans that are fun to pee on when they are lying in the gutter 

    Boise and Nevada fans to UNLV fans

    WTF are you talking about?  Women are never happy.  Every dude knows that, its what men talk about regardless of generation.  That and sports are what bind us together as a gender.

    It is weird.  Gains in womens rights have made them more misserable.

    Boise St is the new basketball royalty in the MWC and possibly the West, they might've never won a single NCAA Tournament game in the entire history of their program, hell they might've never had a single week ranked in the top 25, or even held a better than an 11th seed. They've never even recruited a player higher than a 3-star!

    But hear me out! Their fans seem to think they're good now soooooo...why not?

     

    We just know we are better than UNLV.  Have been since we came to this conference.

    I mean, it's always been obvious during my life time that Conservatives believe that a woman should live to serve her husband, bear his children, do all the cooking and cleaning, and make sure his needs are well tended to. You know, the way it was in 50s-60s television. The Leave It To Beaver life. It's what all woman should truly aspire to become. 

    Back when women were happiest?

    To many (most) working moms that probably sounds like a dream.

    Well, I guess it's at least nice to know that we're still just as stubborn, ornery, and stupid as we were 100 years ago.

    'Murica.  We are a beautiful, inspiring and often stupid people.

    It figures you don’t know shit. You never do Mr. “I fvcking got fooled on RussiaGate, even when month after month Convert gave you reality, but you were too stupid to see it”. Everything I said about RussiaGate has turned out to be true. All of it. A total dork that can’t even predict that the sun will come up in the morning telling someone else what’s really going on in the world is pee-recious. 

    By the way, I’d love to go point by point and prove everything I stated is legit. So if you want to go there, let’s do it. 

     

    Another Convert promise of a list?  Not until you prove Nature magazine wrong about feral cats!!!! Me first.

    The vast majority of mine does as well, quite unfortunately.

    We did a family zoom meeting on Thanksgiving.  They were all in agreement that there were shady things that took place.  My uncle then went on to change the subject to how the royal family killed Epstein, which admittedly makes a lot more sense.

    Being that I was stoned, it was still nice to hear them all again.

    The goal here is to win the court of public opinion so that enough people question it to make it hang there for the next four years. They played the same game with the Russia investigation as well as the impeachment.

    Basically.  My entire family thinks the election was riddled with fraud.  So frustrating.
