    These are quite the eye-popping numbers. Thoughts USMB?

    Liberals will probably call on them to lower their standards, this is obviously discrimination and racism.

    Instead, I propose encouraging the youth and everyone else for that matter to start eating better and exercising. Go outside and enjoy the summer days instead of quibbling over politics on the internet.

    Oh wait a minute...

    At the very least we should be encouraging a more healthy culture and promoting a strong and broad education for all.

    Ahh America is the greatest country on earth!
    We are second to none!
    Gawd bless Merica.
    Aren't large urban areas just wonderful?

    Now if we could just go back to a strict constitutional govt everything would be fine.

    Put them through boot camp. When they get through they'll qualify.

    Wii rocks.

    if we keep stealing each others material, we're going to have to work out some type of licensing agreement.

    but do you like philly cheese steaks? i can't tell. :eusa_whistle:
