We don't call them terrorists any more. Now this. What's next? A human chain of hand holding around the globe, singing Obama songs?

1. He stated it wouldn't be something that would happen anytime soon - "perhaps not in my lifetime." So he's not even obliged to take any action to make it happen.

2. It gives the US diplomatic leverage on the struggle to keep other nations from starting nuclear programs. The fundamental argument for these nations is 'you have them, why can't we?' That no longer holds.

3. It opens up the notion that US foreign policy has grown into more than putting our foot on their throats. With modern weaponry it's just not viable to say 'fug you, we'll blow you up' and expect to have a free, safe society. Take away all the nukes in the world and we're still have the most overwhelmingly powerful military in the world. We don't need nukes to kick ass.

Then what's the point? Imagine a Republican president saying "I would like to lead the world in getting rid of drugs."

In a liberal's mind, maybe.

It opens up the notion that America is softer than ever. The people who don't want to use nukes agree with Obama. The people who can't wait to get their hands on one are thinking "what an idiot...good."

    • lol like funchess needs to worry about celebrating
    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
