Do you believe...

...in a literal creation as described in Genesis (six days to create all life)no

...in spiritual gifts (healing, speaking in tongues, prophecy, etc)-no

...in a literal resurrection and/or ascension of Jesus-yes

...in 'end times' (as described in Revelations)-sort of

I agree with most of  your list, but who do you think Wallace could have picked that would have helped him more than LeMay?
17078  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Has the left developed an anti-entertainment authoritarian streak? on: April 21, 2008, 11:28:49 pm
.... we wouldn't have formal boycotts or picketting like the reactionaires did with Book of Daniel or Farhenheit 911. Though, F911 was sorta asking for it.
Aye. If you make a movie that you know is full of lies, you can expect some jerks to get upset about it.
17079  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Which is these do you agree with? on: April 21, 2008, 11:23:39 pm
None - although I come close to hating Mexicans.  Why?  Because, being part Mexican, it saddens me that so many Mexicans think that they can just walk over to America and have the taxpayers fund their lives and health expenses.  So, I don't hate them, I'm just strongly dissappointed in them.

You poor ass, they come here for brutal, poorly paid toil in the worst sort of jobs.  They certainly receieve nothing from the government.
If this were true (it obviously isn't) why would they risk their lives to get here then?

Hillary's campaign hasn't been funny enough?

In a free society, people who have nothing to do with a crime would not pay to incarcerate them. A poor person would not steal cake from an armed person.

So, you're saying, in a free society, that if I wanted a raise and had to use a gun to "encourage" my boss, that would be okay?  After all, it's a free society... or, maybe that's a social-darwinistic anarchy.
Dude, you are an EXPERT at reading into people's post exactly what you think they are saying even if it has nothing to do with anything.  I'm pretty sure English is your first language, what's the deal?

The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down

Pretty funny actually.  It's pretty accurate too.

le sigh

I find it funny that you call global warming "deniers" zealots when in reality, the most annoying group of zealots going are the global warming pimps and the idiot class they've brainwashed.

Flight of the Living-meh.  It's zombies...ON A PLANE!

Street Fight-Documentary about the Newark mayoral election of 2002.  Suprisingly sad that this kind of political tactics is still allowed in this country.  Sharpe James and a lot of cops should be in jail.  (wiki)  Ahhh, it seems he's heading that way or is already there.  Good.

I'm watching Right at your Door right now.  Good stuff so far.

It would be funny if WWIII started between the West (and our eastern friends) and China (and her friends) over a jerk in Sub-Sahara Africa.

Not "ha-ha" funny.
17086  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Which is more important? on: April 19, 2008, 09:01:31 pm
Moral of course.
17087  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Has the left developed an anti-entertainment authoritarian streak? on: April 19, 2008, 06:30:22 pm
Knocked Up was funny as hell.  Anybody that gets their panties in a twist over that isn't somebody worth listening to.
17088  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 19% of Americans want increased gas tax on: April 19, 2008, 06:19:51 pm
Some of your left leaning friends aren't going to like that.

17090  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: what's the differene between CIA and FBI? on: April 19, 2008, 09:33:34 am
The CIA is external and into intel gathering.  The FBI is internal and into investigative work.

I don't know ya, but congrats and good luck.
17092  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Least Polarized States on: April 18, 2008, 11:57:04 pm
These are mostly farmers and children of farmers that I've known and they tend to not be dicks about much of anything.  Sometimes there is a Ford/Chevy/Dodge thing though Smiley
17093  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Five things that Piss you off? on: April 18, 2008, 11:33:50 pm
No, like everything you could possibly think of.  For example, if we play a board game, it's as if it's a race to find out which color (or whatever) is going to be argued over.  Very snarky to each other in general.  It's mainly the middle girl who instigates it, but the other two are rarely innocent.  I have this theory that middle children are normally the brats/bossy ones.  Both family units I've been personally attached to have had the middle child fit this mold and I've seen it in a lot of other families.
17094  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Five things that Piss you off? on: April 18, 2008, 11:15:53 pm
1.people that are happy being ignorant and knowing it...and don't care.  About something specific or in general
2.when people or organizations I had thought highly get caught doing something that is morally bankrupt
3.when people go out of the way to defend their own people or organizations when they do things that are morally bankrupt
4.when i don't compete well at sport or game (that I normally compete well at)
5.my kids arguing about pointless crap constantly
17095  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Least Polarized States on: April 18, 2008, 11:09:05 pm
Yeah, I've been in nearly every part of the state at one time or another and while they are politically aware (or at least more so than average), they ain't dicks about it (at least less so than average).
17096  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Name 5 things that make you smile :) on: April 18, 2008, 10:55:08 pm
1.watching my kids succeed at something for the first time after failing but sticking with it.
2.old people or little kids falling down...or normal people...hell, anybody falling down is funny
3.various natural beauties one sees from day to day like sunrises and waterfalls
4.competing well against the enemy at game or sport...winning is just icing on the cake
5.other people smiling
17097  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Who are the "weirdest" forum members? on: April 18, 2008, 10:43:44 pm
I've discovered after many years of research that once you scratch the surface everybody is weird.  Raising children has added the truth that we turn weird at a really young age too.  Sure it shows a little more on some than others, but underneath, we're all weird.

Iowa, I'd say.
That was my first thought.
17099  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Name one thing you liked about the last recent Presidents on: April 18, 2008, 04:26:47 pm
Nixon-he supported Israel in the Yom Kipper war when he really didn't have to (nobody else was except the Dutch)
Ford-i have no idea...not much
Carter-deregulated the airlines
Reagan-he told the air traffic controllers to go suck eggs
Bush-looking back..not much.
Clinton-hmmm, he did lead to a lot of good jokes on late night comedy shows
Bush-ditto
17100  General Discussion / History / Re: Was the expulsion of Germans from east of the Oder-Neisse justified? on: April 18, 2008, 03:52:11 pm
And everybody got the shaft.


edit-except for the Communist leaders of course.  They lived like Kings.

And they continue to. In 1995, Poland kicked out Wałęsa and put in one of them.
If Communists acted like he did as President they'd still be around....and wouldn't be called Communists.
