PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE #2 LIVE THREAD
10/07/08

Posted on 10/07/2008 2:01:24 PM PDT by TornadoAlley3

While the two presidential candidates, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama, prepare for their second debate on Oct. 7 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tom Brokaw gets to sift through questions submitted by you. In addition to queries from a group randomly selected by the Gallup organization, Brokaw will be fielding questions submitted online at mydebates.org, the site created by the Commission on Presidential Debates and Myspace. The focus of the town hall-style debate will be domestic and foreign policy, Brokaw's specialties.

The guys on local talk had quite a go around about this one am. They alleged that it must be a form of Democrat id. Look at our Aunt Jennie’s GRAND mole.

Obama is a master at blaming everyone else but himself, on even the littlest things.

When do liberals ever take responsibilities? It so much easier to blame the other guys

The Internet was originally developed by DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, as a means to share information on defense research between involved universities and defense research facilities. Originally it was just email and FTP sites as well as the Usenet where scientists could question and answer each other. It was originally called ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency NETwork). The concept was developed starting in 1964, and the first messages passed were between UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute in 1969. Leonard Kleinrock of MIT had published the first paper on packet switching theory in 1961. Since networking computers was new to begin with, standards were being developed on the fly. Once the concept was proven, the organizations involved started to lay out some ground rules for standardization.

One of the most important was the communications protocol, TCP/IP, developed by Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn in 1974. Robert Metcalfe is credited with Ethernet which is the basic communication standard in networked computers.

Tim Berners-Lee perhaps specified technological applicability and / or linguistic construction of HTML while working at CERN, is chiefly credited for the ease of use and wide public adoption of the web. Here is his website: w3.org

Remember McCain ruled the last half of the last debate. I think he slowly gets sick of the crap piling up on the other side and gives it a shove.

No kidding...if bambi is going to cut taxes for 95%, and only tax those that make over $250K...then that can ONLY mean ONLY 5% in this country make OVER $250K!

I SERIOUSLY doubt this is true.

I’d venture to say well over 5% make $250k or more.

Is it closer to 10%?

Anyone?
