    That's true, but can we get a little more specific?

    How many tries do I get?

    Kerry

    • Son of privilege and wealth
    • Attended Yale
    • Did as little military service as possible
    • Can't take a stand without poll data
    • Left-wing Authoritarian who wishes to deprive you of your Rights
    • "Lesser of two evils"
    • Out of touch with ordinary Americans
    • A measure of how low we've sunk as a nation




    Bush
    • Son of privilege and wealth
    • Attended Yale
    • Did as little military service as possible
    • Takes a position, then insists that the polls support him
    • Right-wing Authoritarian who wishes to deprive you of your Rights
    • "Lesser of two evils"
    • Out of touch with ordinary Americans
    • A measure of how low we've sunk as a nation


    How's that to start with? :mad:

    Ok, I'll bite.

    They're both a couple of authoritarian statists who spend taxpayer money like a drunk on eBay with a new credit card.

    All the replies were good and right,

    and stevelyn got the answer I was looking for: Bush and Kerry were both members of the same elite fraternity, Skull & Bones. BTW, Clinton also went to Yale Law School, but he wasn't a Bonesman.

    That's right, we have two Bonesmen running for president. Those of you who are curious, Google for Skull and Bones.

    Ooooohhhhh, that's scary! Maybe we should try to find out if they're members of the Freemasons, the Trilateral Commission, or maybe even the ultra-secret Himalia Society (named after one of Jupiter's moons, membership is restricted to space aliens).

    I have it on good authority that both were made honorary members of the Girard Kiwanis as well. The conspiracy possibilities are mind-boggling.

    I agree with Antibubba and Justin.

    We have a choice between Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

    Monkeyleg, Don Gwinn, FedDC:

    Am I to understand y'all have, umm, limited appreciation for a nice conspiracy theory?

    I don't know about the Girard Kiwanis, Himalia Society or Phi Psi, but if half of what's printed about about Skull & Bones is true, those surreptitious Yalies are into some real wierdness. If it's not true, then it's really inspired paranoid fiction, and has some entertainment value nonetheless.

    Cheers,

    Richard

    Happy Independence Day!

    I always wonder about that cerimonial crap. My Frat had a mountain of stuff like that with candles and robes...even sites that were suposedly "Sacred" and we had to be taken there blindfolded etc. There were all the secret handshakes and signals, words etc that we had to tell who was a brother and whatnot... So what does it mean now? Not too much. It is good to meet up with buddies and have a beer while we laugh about that stuff. All the conspiracy crap about how the secret societies run the world is just that, crap. I have talked it over with a LOT of my buddies from other chapters and other houses and it is all the same, being part of a "Secret" society may be a nice way to say hi, but it doesn't mean that you will jump when they "brother" calls you and it sure as heck doesn't mean that someone would run a country a certain way bc the society wanted it that way. I have met a lot of guys from my house that know all the secret handshakes...and I wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire.

    This "story" has been on 60 Minutes for perhaps the third time. The woman who wrote the book about Skull and Bones is herself a Yale graduate. She's interviewed--in secret :what: --former members of the Skull and Bones society.

    Hats off to her for making some $$ off the book, but it's nothing more than an exclusive Yale frat club, complete with songs, rituals, and all the other crap that makes me question the value of Ivy League fraternaties.

    They wanted to recruit him the moment they laid eyes on him

    I can easily see Kerry in S&B.


    HE'S ALL SKULL!!!!!

    OK, we all got the cheap shots in about Bush and Kerry's similarities. However, on November 2 one of them will be elected president. (Unless Herself muscles in, which is a possibility and another thread...) Therefore, we ought to focus on the differences between Bush and Kerry. Those are much more important. Those differences will have a far greater consequence to the future of our country and the world than the endless yack about who served more honorably during Vietnam. There are significant events that both men have been involved with now, currently. Those events matter more than the 'secret Skull and Bones handshake' thirty years ago.

    They are both male (I think Kerry is still a male, Teresa might have taken care of that)

    Neither one should be in charge of this country.

    In the moment
    In a small room somewhere, someone is asking John Kerry what the average gunowner in America and Timothy McVeigh have in common. His answer is just as predictable and shortsighted as those on this thread.

    Assuming that someone wants a real answer, here we go:

    Bush:
    - pro-life
    - capitalist
    - favors low taxes
    - pro-defense
    - pro-gun (for the most part - that little license in my wallet proves it)
    - pro-family
    - favors US sovereignty

    Kerry:
    - pro-abortion
    - socialist
    - tax and spend liberal
    - favors a weak national defense
    - anti-gun in the extreme
    - positions weaken the American family
    - favors UN sovereignty

    That's enough of a contrast for me.

    Irony! :D

    Here’s the way I see it.

    Bush:
    - anti-abortion
    - petty fascist
    - favors low taxes for the wealthy at the expense of the middle class
    - pro-war
    - supports some gun control
    - pro-Christian
    - favors U.S. hegemony

    Kerry:
    - pro-choice
    - casual socialist
    - favors low/no taxes for the poor at the expense of the middle class
    - anti-war
    - supports most gun control
    - favors separation of church and state
    - favors international cooperation
