do you actually even watch MMA? Your wit with schoolyard names is even more impressive than your political acumen.

Well, Bush put us into a deep deep recession. Whoever the next president is, will have one hell of a time digging us back out of that hole, no matter who it is. I'd rather see someone who has no relation to Bush give it a shot, and thats Obama.

Well at least we know that Mc Cain has secured the can't-use-the-edit-button vote.

are you serious? In the beginning the UFC was basically no holds barred with very few rules - if any. Wasn't the tag line in the early 90's "There are no rules". Kicks to the nuts, headbutts and hair pulling were allowed.

Today, the sport is now sanctioned with state athletic commissions. Without this, the sport would be no where near as big.

Forced prayer in schools - nice one. Isn't this a card liberals use every 4 years? Maybe a little more praynig is what this country needs - or maybe San Francisco values should spread across the nation.

As for the "we could be in Iraq for 100 years". Are we still in Germany? Are we still in France? Do we have any presence in Japan? Yes, yes and yes.

The UFC is still the same as it was in the early 90's? I wasn't aware that they were still allowed to do eye pokes, headbutts, groin strikes etc and that there were no weight classes or rounds/time limits . I guess you learn something new everyday.

While your statement is wrong, at least you have some type of belief, which I can respect. Sure beats stupid comments like Tepang makes. However, it is amazing that Bush grew the govt. like he has - every Democrate should be in heaven. The amazing thing is Bush has grown govt. spending without raising taxes.

If you really believe Obama and socialism is the answer - that's your call, and again I can respect your position while not agreeing with it. go look at the economic plans of Obama and McCain, look at which one will want the govt to make more of our decisions and control more of our money and lives. Check which one wants us to take SOME personal responsibilty and get the govt. out of our lives where it makes sense.

Its just as bloody as its always been, and when did McCain even say he wanted to ban UFC and that it was human cock fighting? Probably in the last few years.

Forced prayer is the kind of bullshit palin would try to pull, im not a liberal but I dont want to be forced to do anything. I would LOVE to see the government try and make me pray. Try it, please.

Yes we are still in those countries, for what? Making sure they dont act up? Its draining our tax dollars and isnt needed.
