guys should I buy a suit. I have no use for a suit but I kind of want to buy one to have one. I could wear it around or to church. Not a super expensive one or anything but not too cheap I would have to have it tailored to me so it looks good.

Then I suppose I'm a fucking moron.  Thank you for pointing that out.  My life is now complete, having posted here for so many years and finally having met someone with your profound wisdom to shed some light my sorry state of existence.



I was criticizing your mindset when you got your first paycheque. (Not criticizing your current mental capacity; we all know you're a brilliant wordsmith, so there's no need to patronize me). The point of my post was that I want to know what really changed your views back then, because you had to have known the tax man was going to come down and take your money. Surely in associating with socialists this was not brought up?

I see it so often that people are liberal in there youth, but become conservative as they grow older. It's exemplified in that famous quote you mentioned. (a quote that truly irks me, in case that wasn't obvious).  I think the change for most people does come from seeing the tax man take their earned cash, but it seems bizarre to me that they wouldn't have thought about that before. After all, thinking about tax theory is at least part of an active political liberal.

I may not be 35 yet, but I do face many of the same challenges a lot of people go through when they make their political shifts. I have a decent job, and a family to raise. And yet, I have not made this political shift. If anything, many of my experiences have shifted me more to the left. Perhaps I am still to young, and still have a "heart". But as a parent, I'm rather grateful for that trait.

Good post.  I hate that quote on getting conservative as you age. I have moved to the left as I got older. Some of it may be the Republican party is crazy. But I turn 30 in 2 months and I'm the most liberal I have ever been although I'm not really that liberal. I'm not a huge fan of paying taxes and I don't like it when the money is actually misspent or wasted but that money goes to help a lot of people who are less fortunate than me. The real world has made me liberal I have seen way too many people work too hard and then hit a hard time and need help, or people just barely making it who need some food stamp help.

Yeah since I blew past my goal I had 91 oz of pop today putting my weekly total at 279oz almost double my goal. I was doing great up until Friday night. I will have the same goal this week 140 oz limit.

Kerry Bentivolio, HP. The district is just Republican enough to keep electing him baring a Democratic wave year.

Gerald Ford's library is in Ann Arbor Michigan and the museum is in Grand Rapids. Ford went to college at the University of Michigan, but his congress district was based around Grand Rapids. Maybe Obama could have a library and museum separate in two different cities.

Also has anyone been to a presidential library? Ann Arbor is only 20 minutes away and it is free to get into the library, maybe I should check it out.

Bushie has posted about some really stupid things. Pop addiction is not that stupid.

Also I had 24 oz of pop today bringing the weekly total to 92 oz. I feel I'm doing very well since there have been single days were I was over 100 oz.
 

Personally I think more people here should start a update thread.

ugh today I blew it and had 64 oz of pop, I had 32 oz yesterday so because of todays pop I have broke my limit of 140 oz for the week. I'm now at 188 oz for the week. This is still quite a bit under the 300+ oz I can easily drink in w week but I'm upset that I drank over 140 oz. I will have to try again next week to stay under 140 oz.

$1000 dollars a month where do you live Detroit? Probably not it would probably be higher if you did. Even Michigan has high car insurance.

No addicition is stupid. Both Bushie and you and even me have issues. But you won't get any help here if you just tell us each day that you drank more soda than my car could hold. You haven't done anything to combat the problem, so this Update knock off isn't progressing anywhere.


Well this week I have drank a lot less pop, I'm trying to keep my weekly total under 140 oz. Today I only bought a small 24 oz pop instead of the two liter bottle.

Just stop buying soda. Or switch to diet, but even then you're drinking really unhealthy levels.

I can't just not buy pop I will do ok for a few days then crave it and go drink a ton of pop. I need to be able to enjoy a pop at least every few days. I can't stand diet pop. I might cut my regular pop with half diet but it I can get down to only a few can of pop a week having regular won't be all that bad. Plus I can enjoy a regular instead of settling for half diet.

horrible threads but also this.


Would be better if people used them to offer constructive feedback or point to the best posts of the member in question instead of the usual bandwagoning.

This thread may be even more depressing than Update.

Is my pop addiction that depressing?
91  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: I'm addicted to pop on: February 11, 2014, 09:52:08 pm
So I had 0 pop yesterday and only 20 oz today, my goal is under 140 oz this week, I'm at 68 right now. Then 120 oz the next week and probably dropping 20 oz a week until around 40 oz. I really enjoy a pop now and then and I don't think I can completely stop drinking it. 40 oz of pop a week is like 500 calories or so in pop a week not that much.

Yes it was,  2010 would have been a bad year for the Democrats regardless. Republican would have most likely opposed any Democratic plan.

I had no pop on Tuesday because I was sick, I had a can of pop Wednesday, then unfortunately I had a 100 oz on Thursday and about 80 oz today. I think the only way I will be able to limit my pop is if I get a job but it took forever last time to find one and now I have that I was fired from my last job. Also it's hopefully only another month until the weather starts to improve and I can go for walks or ride my bike around, 50 degrees will feel very warm after winter.

What about the liberal elite in Michigan, Ann Arbor? Michigan is Democratic but it seems it has a lack of the liberal elite vs other states.
97  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: I'm addicted to pop on: February 03, 2014, 02:52:20 am
Lots of pop today about 96 oz. I went to my friends house to watch the Superbowl. I brought a two liter of Cherry Coke since I was asked to bring pop, but my friend had bought Mountain Dew Throwback, which I love, so I drank 6 cans of it. I'm currently drinking a cup of black tea right now quite good I don't know why I don't add sugar to it or anything. If I get a craving for pop I should drink a cup of tea first, I have both regular and decaf black tea if I want a cup of tea at like 3am.

I support raising it to around 10 an hour. Does anyone think this would cause significant inflation though. Also the food stamp program should be increased but when I bring up food stamps in discussion most people seem to hate them and want them cut. They talk about lazy poor (black) people buying steaks and pop, ugh I have had a few of these discussions in just the last week.
