8851  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: What's the last movie you've seen? on: July 26, 2007, 07:25:49 pm
The Simpsons Movie
I really liked the opening half hour or so - but I thought the latter parts of the film suffered because of the need for plot development which weighed it down a little. Worth seeing though - much better than most of the Simpsons output in recent years.

Did they show a trailer for "The Dark Knight" beforehand?

Not when I saw it, no.

8853  General Politics / Political Debate / If a man gets Pregnant should he be allowed to have an abortion? on: July 26, 2007, 07:24:10 pm
So if a man accidentally wakes up one day and finds himself pregnant, should he be allowed to have an abortion?

Hahaha.. That's almost exactly what I was going to post in this thread.

Also the attempts at Political 'satire' were far too feeble. The Simpsons truly sucks when it tries to be relevant.
8855  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Should Polygamy be illegal? on: July 26, 2007, 10:29:51 am
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the largest problem with the act of polygamy usually the ages of those wives the man is taking?

What about Polyandry in that case?
8856  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Should Polygamy be illegal? on: July 26, 2007, 07:44:14 am
Have to re-organize society quite a bit if you want to make Polygamy legal.. never mind 'mainstream'. Ernest pretty much summed it up already. Polygamy and Group Marriage should be legal, Bigamy certaintly not.

sounds like william jennings bryan.
WJB is my hero.  John Arthur Eaves is no WJB.

But he's still got my vote for governor, just by not being Barbour.

Which Bryan?... There are two distinct Bryan's for the world to judge... The first was the glamorous Boy Orator of the Platte who fought for the working man. The second was a middle aged political preacher who blotted out the memory of his early crusades by fighting for prohibition and creationisim. (This might not have been so bad, but once he denied man was a mammal, and was broken by Darrow at the Scopes Trial,  I think he really lost his credibility)

He also ended his career defending the Ku Klux Klan on stage at the 1924 Democratic National Convention. 

During the early 1920s, nearly everyone defended the KKK or either belonged to the organization, esp. in the South or Midwest, so I really wouldn't hold that against him.  Times have changed.  After all, I have some ancestors who were members of that group.

Except for those radical figures (among others) Warren Harding and John W. Davis....

aww. the contest is over, I wanted to say satan

What is it with this Satan obsession that some on this forum seem to have?

I don't know but it's fitting when talking about Dick Cheney.

I imagine if Bush were to die tomorrow (*shudders*) then President Cheney................................................................................. Excuse me, I have to go and
bury myself in a tomb for the next few centuries...








Will decide choose not to replace VP, or if he did it would be another neocon hireling, possibly Condi Rice. Cheney knows that he is the kiss of death as far as popularity, sanity or balanced human life is concerned.

The First time I saw this thread I thought "Hmm.. This doesn't seem too important or maybe they've finally found one of the big guys in the Child Porn Industry" and I got my hopes up, only then to see that CARLHAYDEN had started this thread and my faced dropped as I thought to myself "This is about Mexicans isn't it". And behold...

Of course, but you must realize that non-interventionism is an authentically conservative ideology. Notice under which party's banner that the WWI, WWII, Korea, Nam, Bosnia, and Kosovo have happened under. Iraq just happens to be an exception because our Republican president is a "neocon" (definition: "Liberalism under a Republican administration"). Democrats never learn from their mistakes.

You forgot the Spanish-American War and the Civil War for the Republicans

Well, although both of those wars were unjust, it doesn't really support my argument, because back then, the Republicans were the authoritarian party and the Democrats were the libertarian party.

Andrew Jackson sure was libertarian to those Indians.
8865  General Discussion / History / Re: Lincoln and Bush on: July 25, 2007, 07:46:03 pm
I think so. Lincoln was like Bush only to a greater degree. Lincoln suspended habeus corpus, violated the 3rd and 10th Amendments, got us into an unnecesary war, and was hypocritical, to say the least.

Lincoln's war was at least fought on the American mainland.

And no, the two men are not comparable. Though Lincoln has alot to be criticized for surely. Whether you judge the war as unnecesary or not has to based on your opinion on the United States - The Ideal.
8866  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Democrats:Would you support Hillary Rodham Clinton for President? on: July 25, 2007, 07:27:27 pm
I was referring to the donors, Hollywood liberals, more or less. Not the voters. Hollywood gave so much support behind Bill Clinton, it was ridiculous.

It ALWAYS makes me gag when people refer to those egotistical buffons in Hollywood as "left-wing", Decadent and occasionally very useless does not a lefty make. The far left have hated every US president there has ever been (even FDR) read Howard Zinn's book\hackpiece The People's history of the United States and then read a real history book and realize that the far left isn't worth a damn to anyone but their self-satisfied selfs.

Rant over.

8869  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Britain to get border police force on: July 25, 2007, 06:15:08 pm
Ummmm... isn't Britain almost completely surrounded by water?  Is this to keep the Irish out?

LOL

I'm almost certainly the closest of any forumite to a British border, certainly to a land border.

It'll make a change to see 'border police' instead of remarkably young soldiers carrying weapons bigger than they are.

Monaghan doesn't count is, o/c, an honourable exception, Jas. That's Ulster - I mean pretty much the UK. You have to be a true Blue DUB to be truly wild and Irish and have the natural propensity to irk the rest of the country by virtue of one's innate sense of superiority... now Cork people on the other hand.. Can't we just flood Offaly, Laois, Kilkenny and Carlow Longford, Roscommon and Cavan so that we can finally remain a civilized bastion. I mean no-one's using those counties. Tongue

Corrected your post. Smiley

Clearly this new fangled Internet-thingy is messing up Culchie-Monaghan Brain. It just can't handle so much information so puts lots of waffle usually against how the Dubs are stealing all your 1) land 2) wimmen 3) Potatoes - When will the culchie bitterness end?
And why would we want to flood Longford? I mean look at what it's done for Civilisation.... Where would be without Longford Town.. I imagine something like this:

Dude, You can't 'like' or 'hate' Iraq, man, I mean it is an abstract concept sort of like Terrorism (or Dick Cheney, hahahaha) - I mean it's just a line in the sand. Is there different sand in Saudi Arabia than in Iraq. No the only difference is that America supports Islamic fascists in one country and kills Islamic freedom fighters in the other, I mean dude come on as we can see George W Bush is the world's number one Terrorist - look how he uses rhetoric to brainwash to American people, the sheep, American Dream, American Scream, Man it's all the same. HELLO YOUR CHILDREN AREN'T SPECIAL, YOU ARE JUST CORPORATE SHEEP FIGHT ABSTRACT CONCEPTS AND EVIL RIGHT WING RHETORIC.. Right to bear arms? Oh yeah, I support the rights of Iraqis to bear man.. Oh man.. Oh man, I'm so damn high right now.

Hillary Clinton (2009-2013)
John Ellis Bush (2013-2021)
Barack Obama (2021-2029)


Bush-Clinton from 1989-2021.. Talk about Dynasty. I doubt America will have another Bush presidency for some while yet, if ever.
