I'm fine with DC as Speaker.
2  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: does bushie represent the average oklahoman? on: Today at 07:22:33 pm
He's also far too educated. He has a degree

This, and I suspect his weight might also be under average.

Tim Howard is good, but he's no Manuel Neuer... Wink

Did anyone else notice the Democratic ration of negative advertising far outstrips the GOP?

Well that is the best argument Democrats have, that they're not the GOP...
5  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What would you spend $42 000 from your piggy-bank on? on: August 29, 2014, 10:50:49 am
I'd buy a vacant lot and let Occupy Cincinnati use it.

You'd only need about $42 to find a sufficiently large lot to accomodate Occupy Cincinnati.

And now imagine if we found a way to get rid of the East... Wink
7  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Can you vote in the 2014 Senate elections? on: August 28, 2014, 08:35:08 am
Yes, I'll vote for Durbin.

This.

Also change your avatar. I want more D-ILs. Smiley

The only official thing I have to do with Illinois anymore is a postal ballot every two years, so D-IL would be inaccurate... Smiley

Actually, being in IL right now... Although it's nice to see my American half of the family, I really won't mind leaving next week...

Wouldn't some of them be happy about the last one? Wink [/troll]

That's what I thought. Isn't that why Americans need to be armed to the teeth?

NAY
10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Nine year old kills gun instructor with Uzi on: August 27, 2014, 09:35:07 am

Indeed. These regrettable incidents are merely the price that must be paid to protect freedom.
11  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Can you vote in the 2014 Senate elections? on: August 27, 2014, 09:32:39 am
Yes, I'll vote for Durbin.

Some "grand" coalition that would be in Sachsen.
13  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Nobody is noticing but Democrats are absolutely flooring the GOP with SuperPACs on: August 26, 2014, 09:37:12 am
Seems like the price of a Senate seat rises dramatically every cycle.
14  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of this ad on: August 25, 2014, 09:57:29 am
Americans should be banned on commenting on the politics of other countries until they've past a test.

This is a very reasonable suggestion.
15  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Would you rather live in London or Stockholm? on: August 24, 2014, 10:02:26 pm
Are the Americans aware that Stockholm means passport free travel in Europe? Wink

Do you need a passport to travel to London?

There are border controls as they're not Schengen, but it needn't be a passport.
16  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Would you rather live in London or Stockholm? on: August 24, 2014, 12:57:49 am
Stockholm by far.
17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: U.S. Media Coverage Of Israel-Gaza Conflict Gets An 'F' on: August 23, 2014, 11:37:17 am
It's difficult to come to a different conclusion. I understand there will be a certain pro-Israel bias in the States, but even so, it's odd that the humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza would be almost completely ignored.
18  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: The 2-nd Amendment. on: August 23, 2014, 11:27:35 am
I think I've made my opinions on gun policy sufficiently well known, but irrespective of the actual gun regulations, it's absolutely nonsensical to protect it as a basic and absolute right equivalent to freedom of speech.

When being contained in a glass bottle -> FD

When being contained in a plastic bottle -> HD

/snob

So Germans use to drink water in glass bottles? I had no idea. Here you only buy in in plastic bottles.

Indeed, and I also prefer glass (and carbonation!). Smiley

1. Polnut

21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: If the rest of the world joined the USA... what would change? on: August 22, 2014, 04:00:35 pm
I'd revolt.

Happy birthday, hope you've had a martini or three Smiley
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: St Louis police murder scandal (PLUS: riots, idiotic press conferences, etc.) on: August 17, 2014, 11:30:44 pm
Can anyone explain why lethal force would be justifiable even if the accusations are true? Not seeing how any sane person could believe that.
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Switzerland on: August 12, 2014, 11:58:10 am
We've had this debate several times. I think the correct answer is that institutional racism is a far bigger issue in the States, having a large effect on many peoples' lives without expressibg it much. Openly appearing racist is a big no-no. Whereas openly racist sentiments are more commonly found among a usually outspoken minority in most European places. Switzerland being an extreme example, and one where the outspoken minority is close to being a majority...
25  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: BREAKING: American forces bomb ISIS targets in Iraq on: August 09, 2014, 09:20:21 am
I'm not seeing the arguments against this. A mission like this is precisely what American military might should be used for.
