    Not that it excuses the stupidity factor, but I'm pretty sure that the AR-15 (unless the guy pictured had a Level III license) isn’t an “assault rifle.” Maybe the resident gun experts can set me straight.

    Before we can answer, we have to define "Assault Rifle", which is the biggest problem with the whole Gun issue.


    BTW, how can a guy named bbgun not be an expert on this subject?

    It's not technically an assault rifle as it does not have selective fire.

    Here, look at the data like this. The graph shows the relationship between graduation rates and military enlistment ratios. The x-axis is grad. rate and the y- axis is military enrollment.

    [IMG]

    Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming all have graduation rates of 80% or higher. Only 3 of them have positive enrollment ratios. 3 out 12.

    Of those 12 states, 5 are considered "red", 5 are considered "blue", and 2 are considered "purple".

    That data indicates that the correlation between graduation rate and enlistment is significantly higher than the correlation between state political leanings and enlistment.

    Yep.

    Maso hates Southerners.

    He's like the anti-Foghorn Leghorn.

    It's true. The fact that I'm a southerner fills me with constant self loathing. It's a perfect match for my 20-something angst and my recently acquired Northwestern depression.

    Whoa slow down with all that Army talk. If you join the Navy then you can be shipmates with Bob.

    :D


    Now quiet down! You're going to make people believe I think Southerners, military men, and non-matriculators* are dumb.

    *There has to be a better (and real) word for that. What word am I looking for?

    Honestly? YES!!! I'm there. Maybe we can bunk together.

    The antonym for matriculate is graduate. So I have no idea.:D

    Well, I wanted to say someone who didn't enroll in college, but given the high school graduation rate graph, I guess I should have just said non-graduate.

    I wanted to find the college enrollment data to make a comparison graph, but I have no idea where to find it.

    I understand your meaning, but I didn't know a better word for it.

    So I just thought to myself: "What's the antonym for academician? Certainly that will provide us with something."

    Of course, the antonym for academician is ignoramus -- which wouldn't have helped your case at all.:D

    I beat you to it.
    The individual refused to give his name.
    Unlike Kathy Abrahams who stood up to Arlen Benedict Specter,this clown would not give a name.
    Coward ACORN plant.

    No doubt this guy was a plant.
