Should the US sign an FTA with New America?
60977  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: World's friendliest/most hostile int'l border on: September 04, 2005, 05:09:29 pm
All EU nations and US/Canada are definately the most friendly. North/South Korea is definatly the most hostile, India/Pakistan is up there too. US/Mexico doesn't even come close.

You have American Conservative and Liberal (supposedly opposites) right next to each other and near the top. You also have Anarcho-Communist and Liberal Nationalist above Thachter, which seems odd for you.

The "Liberal" result is probably closest to Libertarian, since it means classical Adam Smith Liberlaism.

About wishing I was there, it'd be nice to visit but I wouldn't want to stay there permanently, location means that touring bands don't come there and there aren't any great record stores. No doubt lots of hot strippers though. But the clubs are probably pretty damn expensive.

DeWine has the lowest approval ratings of any senator
Ryan is more pro-gun than DeWine.

Ryan can definately do it.

I was about to be uber partisan and say 1, 3 and 5 but then I remember Vitter trashed Bush over this. So I'll excuse him. And Blanco hasn't been too great either. So 1, 2 and 3.

Get someone who isn't an incompetant idiot who basically does everything he can to piss off the other other side and maybe.
60989  General Politics / Political Debate / Are the campaigns of intolerant prudes only self-defeating? on: September 04, 2005, 10:47:31 am
I read once about how when Married...With Children started out, it was only moderately succesful. But then some housewife in Michigan saw an episode and got disgusted because it contained homosexual references, a man in garters, anda topless women holding her arms in front of her breasts (yes, this was a big deal to her.) So she wrote to the advertisers demanding they pull from the show. Her campaign picked up steam and soon she was appearing on talk shows and getting mentioned in the newspaper.

Sure enough, this just resulted in people wanting to see what the show was all about. The ratings skyrocketed, it became one of the biggest hits on TV, and advertisers decided the revenue was stronger than any potential boycott and came back. So the show stayed around for a very long time, hence meaning she accomplished nothing.

It was quite similar with the video game Night Trap. That was one of those awful FMV games that existed in the 90s, for the Sega CD, a console dedicated to such awful games, hence it's flop. The game was terrible, and sold the same way. Then intolerant fake Democrat Lieberman focused on that game as part of his whining about video games despite the fact that no one was buying it anyway. Sales skyrocketed afterword.

I am also reminded of reading about a strip club owner who said he was happy a local fundamentalist church had launched a crusade against him, as it only resulted in free advertising and increased business. Furthermore all the whining about Grand Theft Auto has done nothing to hurt the games' popularity, and it's also a main source of that idiot Marilyn Manson's popularity for his worthless crap.

So should intolerant prudes just shut up, as they usually only hurt themselves?

Bush is an incompetant moron who can't do sh!t right and he completely botched this up resulting in the deaths of thousands of Americans. There is no reason he should not be bashed for that.

So I repeat:

BUSH IS AN INCOMPETANT MORON

This is no different from what you guys would be doing if Carter was president as you say the exact same things about him.

I will NEVER support Bush. NEVER NEVER NEVER.
60991  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Would you live in North Korea or Taliban Afghanistan? on: September 04, 2005, 10:31:16 am
Afghanistan for that reason, easier to escape, plus easier to start your resistance.
60992  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: OH Senate 2006. on: September 04, 2005, 10:26:35 am
Yeah, it's not like DeWine doesn't have the lowest approval ratings of any senator in the country or anything.

If you want people to listen to your criticisms, you have to offer something other than criticism occasionally.  This you fail miserably to do.

so in other words no one should listen to your idiotic ubllshi! t whining about feminists and liberals.

ETA is a Marxist organization and they don't support the Basque National Party, but rather the recentely banned socialist Batasuna.

All four quadrants of the politcal compass have had terrorists, but has there any been a centrist one?
