    Intrade, located in Ireland, does not give a **** about who wins or loses. They have no side and no sympathy. You make your bets based on the analysis of the situation - that's all.

    If you're confident, then I would pout a bunch of money on Romney with those odds of almost 3 to 1.

    Of course, technically you are right. No argument.

    In NV, as you know, you can mow down a pedestrian if they aren't in a crosswalk. But would you? Should you? I'm guessing that you slam on your brakes and come to a screeching halt whenever you see a chance of this happening.

    Being right isn't always right.

    I haven't seen the movie... but a movie being critical of something is most likely protected speech here in the US ( a death sentence in some of the more backwards countries)

    in any event, the movie makers ,IMO, are blameless... the responsibility for the violence and death lies squarely on the shoulders of those whom perpetrated the acts... not ISlam, not the movie, not the great satan.. the asshats who did it.

    Yes, mission accomplished. But it was the innocent that paid the ultimate price.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Muslims who can't get it through their thick delusional heads that they don't get to run wild and kill people because the world doesn't cater to their ridiculous beliefs.

    So it was Muslims who attacked the consulates and embassies and the reason for their actions were their religious beliefs? And you have the facts on this?

    yes indeed. So far it looks like the organized assault on the Libya consulate was pulled off by a group known as Ansar al Sharia (which translates to "supporters of sharia" or "partisans of sharia"). in much of the rest of the area, the crowds that are mobbing the embassies are doing so because they are angry about a video which in their mind has committed atrocious heresy.

    Missed the joke eh?

    BTW, neither of these two clowns is going to win with 3 to 1 odds, anyone that believes either is capable of that is not living on planet earth.

    If they are based in Ireland that would explain a lot. I'll get a piece of that action.
