Supports all the right people.. except Bloomberg.
8927  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you support universal health care? on: July 15, 2007, 01:16:02 pm
At a very decentralized level, yes. Or at least some form of provision for any citizen, but I don't have anything against private health care as long as the goverment and the private sector don't entwine each other too much.

I once dreamed that the Pope was an elected, partisan office.  In Idaho.

The Pope of Idaho.

Did this pope get a popemobile?

If so it sounds kinda cool, in a mormon sort of way.

Probably the most devastating possible thing that could happen to the Republican Party would be if Roe vs. Wade were to be ever overturned.

I totally second this.

Which is why Roe vs. Wade will never be overturned (at least in the foreseeable future.)

If, indeed, a majority of Americans hate the two-party system; then they have three options:

Put up; shut up or change things !

Excellently put, sir.

8932  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Do you believe a national handgun ban would cause crime to drop? on: July 14, 2007, 07:23:36 pm
Probably not given how easily guns can be accessed right now. If a ban came in place people would just stockpile their guns prior to the ban being enacted (and perhaps start off a massive black market trade).

It's less ridiculous an idea through that having students carrying guns on university campuses for protection. As if any sane human being wants to be surrounded by armed hormonal late adolescents.

Geez... you know you're hitting the bottom of the barrel if your political hero seems to be Spongebob Squarepants.. not that I have anything personally against the squishy one. He and Patrick seem rather angry for some reason.. Weird Sea creatures of the world Unite (Untie?)!

Apparently I read somewhere a recent survey showed that 20% of Americans still believe in Geocentrism (ie. The Sun revolving around the Earth, the centre of the Solar System), now I don't know much about that poll's accuracy but It would explain alot in the context of this thread.

Directly? No
Indirectly? Yes

Indirectly in the same way Jesus was responsible for the Crusades.

Uh, could you be, well, a bit less didactic... just a tad.

Hmm.. That depends on how well defended my Cave is by then.
8939  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Ohio Considers January Primary on: July 14, 2007, 04:41:36 pm
Great, more early primaries probably means the nomination going all the way to the convention gets more and more likely.

And if that happens to the republicans, imagine all the fun we could have.

8941  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you support impeaching Dick Cheney? on: July 14, 2007, 12:48:08 pm
Can't think of a reasonable arguement for 'no' - except that the US should wait to file criminal charges once Bush is out of office in 08' and so can't pardon him.

* Barack Obama becoming President with an Afro.

That would simply be the greatest thing ever... If Barack grows a 'fro you know who'll I'll be supporting come next November.

Most of my dreams tend to be incoherent, though I remember once dreaming of watching Canadian Election results (god knows why) on TV and the NDP had won something like 80 seats (Or some really high number).

After that I swore not to go on this forum anymore, I was wasting my youth ffs. And I never did...

8944  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: when will the republicans win another presidential election? on: July 13, 2007, 03:48:52 pm
The last time the presidential election ballot did not feature either a Bush or a Clinton anywhere on it was 1976.

You Know if you add Nixon and Dole to that list you're looking at only one election since the 1940s (1964)...

And if you add Roosevelt, Dewey and Bryan you go back even further.. only three elections since 1892 - 1916, 1928 and 1964.

So this ain't a new thang...

8948  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: The Politics of Strip Clubs: Are Lap Dances Free Speech? on: July 13, 2007, 01:52:15 pm
I won't argue legal niceties here.. but suffice to say I struggle to imagine how a lap dance could be figured as "speech" - perhaps we need a new word to clarify and separate this from speech - "Free rights to 'performance' regardless of the nature of said performance on Private Property" or something of that nature. (Yes, I'm very aware of how that could be read - but I not bothered right now to go into any detail.)
8949  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Conrad Black's found guilty! on: July 13, 2007, 01:49:01 pm
It's good to see pure human scum go to jail. Especially those who are worthless to society, like Lord Black. 

Now if we could say the same about Scooter Libby...

But let's not detract from the main topic at heart. Which is worthless human being is found guilty of crime SHOCK! (Anyone know what the possible sentence might be?)
8950  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: when will the republicans win another presidential election? on: July 13, 2007, 01:46:28 pm
2020. At which point political scientists will be able to speak of the "Democratic era," as they will have won the popular vote in all but one election since 1988.

I doubt it. It'll probably be referred to as the Bush-Clinton era, assuming Hillary is elected in 2008.  Hell, it's quite possible I could be 28 by the time I live under a President whose last name isn't Bush or Clinton.

Hmmm.. Jeb Bush 2016? Or will he be too old by then?

I have a funny feeling that the Republicans will somehow.. and not sure how and with who.. win in 2008 (Unless Al Gore is DEM nominee).. which would actually be bad for them in the long run. I thought the same in 2004 and look how that turned out..

Apart from that, I echo Lewis' sentiments.
