    Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Col. Cathy Reardon said the idea was proposed by an Air Force researcher at a lab at Brooks Air Force Base in Texas, but it was rejected by the Defense Department. Officials noted that the Air Force constantly is considering funding proposals.

    No money was spent, Reardon said, and no such weapons are being considered. The goal was to create a non-lethal weapon to be used against enemy troops.
    So what exactly could "only have happened under, um...well, then" ?

    The rejection of the idea and no money being spent on it?

    Such a comment could lead one to think you believe it would have been taken up under any other administration

    it’s an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    So what do you think I took away from the story, Nigel?

    The only sure fact that may be fairly derived from it is that no story, issue, complaint, rumor, or what-have-you (and you must admit at this point there has been plenty of everything) about the Bush administration quite resembles this.

    Has the pointing up of such factoids driven you totally moon-batty after a mere 200-odd days of Democrat "control" at all (at all).

    Why so touchy, Nigel?

    Outside of you and Busyman, the rest of us are having a blast.

    BTW-

    How do you feel about defending your point, which (no matter how you view things) reduces to:

    See? Your brand of incompetence is completely inferior to Ours..."

    Also-

    Have you the question I requisitioned from Headquarters.

    The rumours were rife about this when it was suggested years ago.

    I have nothing against a gay method of stopping wars as long as it is not Enola Gay.

    I thought it was quite funny.

    Do you think vid would have said anything if

    1) it wasn't you posting the thread coupled with

    2) mentioning this goes in the Clinton column

    Tbh, my first thought when seeing the thread title was, "Oh here we go again".

    Then I thought the article was quite funny then...

    I thought, "Wtf does this have to do with the Clinton column?"

    Then I go, "Oh it's just j2, again."

    Your line about the Bush admin is quite funny too. Are you trying to be ironic?

    You are right there, because this story points to a silly idea being turned away, Bush would no doubt embrace it.

    Please explain what exactly some inventor proposing something has to do with the Clinton administration. If the story was that it was proposed and accepted then it would have an attachment.

    It's a funny story worth posting, I just wonder what kind of obsession (apart from the mantra "everything was Clinton's fault" ) led you to say it could only have happened under Clinton.

    You remind me of British tabloid headlines like "Queen in gun scare shocker".

    The headline might make one think someone had actually planned something or got near to the queen with a gun. The story would turn out to be a gun was found in a trash can the day before and two miles away from somewhere the queen was visiting.

    Officials noted that the Air Force constantly is considering funding proposals.
    perhaps you should concentrate on what actually got through instead of what didn't

    I'm not being touchy, what I'm asking is one of those questions that you never seem to answer but instead pose another question.

    I asked a question and you answered with another question then asked me when I am going to ask you a question

    it’s an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    I don't like your, um...innuendo.
