I was reading somewhere that during a Presidential Election year, when the Redskins play, the end result points to the likely winner of said election with the odds around 95% to 98% of the time. When the Redskins win, the party that currently holds the office will win. When they lose, the party that does not currently hold office will win. (Now I have not researched this to see how true this may be....just some trivia that I read in some obscure website)

I am a big Steeler fan, much like the rest of you here on the Planet, but I dont know if I can take 4 years of Obama for one Steelers win. :HeadBanger Had the Steelers won last week, I could accept a lose a little easier. But now, we just can't drop two games in a row.

Oh the heartache....... :?

Yup. Four years ago was the first time since the 1930's that the "if Redskins win then imcumbant party wins" phenomenon did not occur.

I think the popular vote still carried that stat though...

It's just a superstition, but you know Dan Rooney's loving it!

I won't get too into my beliefs but let's just say I'm not as conflicted.

No. GWB did not carry the popular vote in the 2000 election. I believe that he did in 2004.

The really frightening part of this statistic is that there has NEVER been a game during an election year where the opponent's coach (in this case the Steelers and TOMLIN) has been as unprepared and unqualified. This means that the fate of the free world's biggest election could be decided by someone who is not fit for the job and was only put in position becuase of the Rooney rule.

I'm hoping for such a devastating blowout by the Steelers that they have no choice but to add Harrison/Woodely to all ballots/ Then Steeler Nation shows up at the polls and they win in a landslide.

Let's see Putin intimidate them!

I think the stat was in a situation when there is not a candidate up for re-election, the oval office changes political party with a skins loss every time. I just heard it on ESPN radio a few minutes ago.

Seriously, write them in...

"As the first order of business, President James Harrison has delcared that the state of Ohio is to be used as a landfill for the rest of the union...... Maryland as well"

In all seriousness, regardless of your views this election has been exciting. Maybe I'm finally of an age to care, but it seems like EVERYONE cares this year. The turn out for early voting here in NC was staggering.

Agree completely. And there are other reasons I vote republican, none of them are really applicable to this board. However, as a proud republican, I know two things . . .

1. I think no matter how hard I hope against it, Obama is going to be our new president, and we should just come to grips with it now. :HeadBanger
2. I could give a shat about this when it comes to rooting for my Steelers. :tt2

I think once we get past the idea that we don't have a right to everything we earn ...

[Now before anyone blows a gasket, think back to what your minister/priest/rabbi/shaman said this weekend - you know the part about it's not really ours, it is God's. And remember that other part, the one about giving to the poor?

Or, to keep it secular, if we all pocket every penny of the money we earn, who will pay for: the military, roads, research (National Institutes of Health, anybody?), schools, health (Medicare, one of those truly SOCIALIST government programs :twisted: ) , and any 10 or 20 other things I'm not thinking of?

Yes, taxes are EVIL, and socialist too, and we should have none of them!]

... anyway, once we get past the part that we do need to give some back, and that all taxes are "Redistribution", it's just a matter of how much and to whom.

Obama won't redistribute your earnings "as he sees fit" any more than McCain would. It's a matter of setting priorities: "Should this big pot of money go to the Wall Street fat cats whose annual income is 400 times the national average, or to someone in the middle class who is trying to pay the bills for today, save for their kid's college, and also try to have enough of a retirement to stay out of the county poorhouse? "

I'm in favor of the middle class, and that's why I'm voting for Obama.

My money should go to me first and distributed how I see fit, not how someone in the oval office or some Washington Big Wig sees fit. The problem is, regardless of party, that the people of Washington, New York, and LA do not and don't want to understand what it is like in Middle America and the hard working Americans. And for them to determine how I spend or what I should do with my money, let alone tell me how I should live my life or raise my children is ludacris. I am for the Middle Class, just not Obama's obscure and un-experienced thinking of how it should be. The American Dream is being flushed down the toilet by this new breed of democrats [aka Socialists (They are not the same democrats as when our parents were groing up)], the major national media, the big coastal city liberals, and the quite often mindless hollywood celebs who should do what they are paid to do and not use their exposure to push their political ideas. This is not the idea of America that my father and grandfathers fought to defned. God help us!

This will be the last of my political rants as I don't believe that this is the proper forum for it. GO STEELERS!

Who is gonna determine who is rich and who is not? Who is gonna determine what constitutes a small business?

I first heard $250K, then $200K, then $150K now $120K. None of those numbers mean your rich. Raising taxes is not the answer, especially in the fiscal crisis we are in. Vote for your wallet and vote for who you fit in best with. A majority of these people always vote for specific parties so who do you fit in with?

Gays, Hollywood actors, welfare recepients, college students, the media, lawyers, hippies, unions, PETA or do you associate yourself with business owners, military and law enforcement, older people, successful people with money, Christians and veterans.

You can joke about the stereotyping, but it is what it is. I associate with men and women who although not filthy rich, are mostly financially successful, some are religious, (I am not), we believe in family values, (keep the smut in the bedroom and not in front of the kids), we work hard for our money, and we aspire to make more. We don't expect the government to give us anything, but we will donate to worthy causes and always help our community. I find it funny how most everyone I know feels this way, and votes in a similar fashion. We aren't racist's or rednecks or gaybashers. Some of us our business owners, some are employees, some are college grads some are not. We are everyday hardworking, money making Americans who support our military and our law enforcement. We don't like crime, or forced hand outs. We don't want to be forced to take care of other people who aren't doing anything to help themselves. We want to protect our borders our language and our culture. We are the silent majority who don't go and protest. But we also make up many voters in the US.

Hey SD, the only thing I would say is that there are people on both sides of the aisle who feel exactly like that on just about every point. I think that is called the great middle in America - not wacko left or wacko right. Time will tell, no matter who wins, how much they try to do the right thing for us in the middle. If they cater to the wacko fringes, this country will go down the tubes at each other's throats. If they do it right, we can get back on our feet and keep the American dream alive.

I want my kid, and his generation, to be better off than mine. It can happen, but only if we make strong efforts to tear down barriers between us, instead of govern by dividing.

I want my kid, and his generation, to be better off than mine. It can happen, but only if we make strong efforts to tear down barriers between us, instead of govern by dividing.

I hope so, but why does it seem that a majority of those wacko fringes are on the left?

Games on!

You mean like Rush Limbaugh and conservative talk radio? The NRA? Or the religious right? :P

Hey SD, the only thing I would say is that there are people on both sides of the aisle who feel exactly like that on just about every point. I think that is called the great middle in America - not wacko left or wacko right. Time will tell, no matter who wins, how much they try to do the right thing for us in the middle. If they cater to the wacko fringes, this country will go down the tubes at each other's throats. If they do it right, we can get back on our feet and keep the American dream alive.

No, I'm talking about PETA, and all the anti war activists, and the nation of islam, and those who need to legalize pot, and those who don't mind killing babies in the 3rd trimester, and those who think everyone who should be able to come here from every other country and we should pay for their schooling and their medical costs and learn their language, and those who think that we should teach our kids about gays, and those who don't want to be judged yet they pierce their faces and dye their hair strange colors, and those who think if we celebrate Christmas we are being insensitive to people who don't believe in God, and those who believe we should pay reparations to African Americans because we once had slavery in this country, and those who think freedom of speech mean showing sex and saying four letter words on TV when the kids might see it, and those who want to crap out more kids even though they don't have a job because they know the government will pay them more money for each kid.


Limbaugh and talk radio is a knee jerk reaction to all the stuff above, the religious nuts wouldn't bug anyone if networks would use common decency over the airwaves, Roe vs Wade will never be over turned, and I'm glad because we have enough unwanted children in this world, and the NRA wants to keep their weapons, which is allowed through the Constitution, they are just worried the pacifists on the left might come to power and say who can own firearms. These aren't really fringe wackos, most of them are your neighbors unless you live in Hollywood, San Fran, the Tri state area, a college town or a major urban area. But the major media outlets have found a way to broadcast their propaganda to small town USA, and the havenots who are looking for handouts, and the weaker brained followers are buying it.

If Obama is voted in tomorrow, then I will truly know that I am now a minority in this country, and if that happens I know all is not lost, because I will go into the infomercial business and sell some program that shows you how to get rich quick without working, because I will know the idiots who watch TV are ripe for the picking. :lol:

Guess I'm just a live and let live kind of guy. I'm not religious but try my best to treat others as I would like them to treat me. I don't own a gun because I feel no need to. I don't believe the 2nd amendment would ever be overturned and people who say it will are simply fear mongering. 2/3 of congress and 2/3 of the states would have to be in agreement to overturn. 37 states have CCW laws...I think your guns are safe.

As for "people being different" well, for those of you claiming to be religious, if you believe that God made man in his image then that includes ALL man...you don't get to be selective on that one. Sorry...it doesn't work like that. It's an all or nothing deal there.

Life is precious and short...we all only get one. I don't like everyone and I don't believe it's possible for anyone to like everyone. But I guess I see it as Ghandi once said, "If you can't help someone at least don't harm them." Whatever takes place between two consenting adults is none of my business and as long as they aren't hurting me or anyone else then I don't give a rats ass what they do.

My point is people should stop letting fear rule their lives. People should stop worrying about differences so much...especially in cases where someone's differences have no bearing on one's life whatsoever.

People should live their lives and try to enjoy them rather than fearing, hating and condemning everything they don't understand and/or agree with.

Hey D! Good thoughts, as always.

History is the story of the pendulum swinging back and forth between conservatives and liberals (sort of). When it swings one way, the one camp is happy. When it swings the other way the other camp is happy. Glad you're happy now. When it swings back the other way I will feel better about things.
