    True....but not difficult to get....probably easier than spending the time to work things out is.

    Guess we just fundamentally disagree. I'd much rather try and work things out than get into drawn-out disputes over money and custody of children. And I absolutely don't think people are getting married because they feel that it's easy to get a divorce. If things were that easy then why get married at all?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    You're also looking at it from a middle to upper class perspective....

    Lower economic class folks don't have as much to fight over, and are a big chunk of American divorces.

    I would think poor and working-class folks have a lot more to fight over, especially when it comes to money. Just my two cents, i don't have any personal experience though i'm still a kid.

    the majority of what makes a divorce difficult is fighting over custody, assets, and debt. the lower classes arent going to have a lot of assets...nor is custody usually a concern there. furthermore, neither party is likely to have the resources for a protracted legal battle and instead will settle most rhings by agreement.

    Fortunately Noot has no chance of getting the nomination in 2012.

    Maybe we need to find out how many times they mounted their other woman and see which one was the worst.

    I think just once kind of stains you.
    No.

    One lied.

    One committed perjury, a felony for which he subsequently paid a court fine and was disbarred.

    That's the key difference, not which holes were employed or how many times the humidor was opened.

    Almost as stupid as saying that we'll be dominated by atheist radical Muslims.

    What is the difference between Newt and a newt?


    One is a slimy, cold blooded creature. The other is a species of amphibian.
