    Id prefer to see atleast a fraction of the huge increase in military research spending of late transferred over to the civilian sectors and the NSF, so they can get reasonable increases in their bugets too. The military research may make us a military powerhouse, but the research on everything else is what makes the country tick.
    that makes no logic

    Good idea Jim - it could have collateral benefits. Maybe football broadcasters would drop the war analogies and begin to use arm wrestling lingo instead. Is there an arm wrestling lingo?

    I've always wanted to see GWB in a fight. Just one fight. I bet if it was televised he'd lose half of his base in a single swoop when they saw what a wuss he'd be. Bravado just wouldn't work after that.

    I say we have MMA style fights, the first one to get knocked out or tap out loses and only the politicians get bloodied not any one else. I personally want to see Chancellor Merkel kick GWB in the head.
