A tie I guess.  Wanting to toss somebody in jail because of a fake blog is pretty lame.  I don't know if it's more lame than actually making a fake blog though.  That's pretty childish.

I figure they like to paint all Libertarians and conservatives with the same giant brush....wait, I didn't really do that did I?  I should have said something like, "see, the left is full of nuts" or something.
17079  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is the most racist? on: December 11, 2007, 04:49:26 pm
I think its a tie between the GOP and the Constitution Party.

What about the Dems? They were the slavery/segregation party, now weren't they?
And currently they are for the only openly racist policy in America, Affirmative Action.

The left will never run out of nuts.

17083  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Do Ron Paul supporters remind you of communists? on: December 11, 2007, 04:08:00 pm
No, the thing is that Paul is not a real leader for America.  He is a doctor from TX, what does he know about running the country other than his own beliefs.  Therefore it seems to me he just wants to push his crazy ideas(no matter how much people wish they would they will never work) on others.
Apparently you missed the "Congressman" part of his title. It seems to me that a successful doctor with political and military experience is more qualified and "in touch" with the majority of Americans than a lot of the people running for office now. As for pushing his "crazy ideas," the whole of his candidacy is that he's against the government forcing things on people.

Well then why does he want to outlaw gay marriage and abortion?
Except he doesn't.  He just wants to take it out of the hands of the Feds.  So...ya know....when the next time the Bible Thumpers get in charge they wont take them away in mass.

every libertarian i know is also a pot head. its amazing!
Don't get out much do you?
17085  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Am I a hypocrite? on: December 11, 2007, 02:04:51 am
Of course not.  Christianity isn't a one size fits all kind of thing.  There are many different flavors.

Of course there is a matter of Free will here. Hawkins is responsible is actions I didn't say otherwise...

But why in that case do more people America like Hawkins direct their free will towards violence than in European countries, where more often they don't?
Maybe because Americans don't have at outlet for their violence at their sporting events?
17087  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Do Ron Paul supporters remind you of communists? on: December 10, 2007, 03:11:34 pm
Yes. Not ideologically of course, and not communists NOW obviously, but look back to the 60s in countries such as France. Watch The Dreamers and take note of the twins especially the guy who reads from Mao's little red book.

Essentially, Paul's supporters are sort of a political cult similar to some communist parties, even if they are ideologically diametrically opposed.
Are you saying this is a bad thing or just attempting to insult by contrasting the ideologies against each other?  Do you have a problem with nonviolent political activism?

The kid was evil.  He said he was sorry for what he was about to do, yet did it anyway.  He said "Now I'll be famous" - he's an evil freak that left his poor family the legacy that he was a murderer.

I'm sorry, Inks, but it is at least of no use and at most patently absurd to consider individuals the cause of 'their' actions. 

So you're telling me it's not the kid's fault that he killed 8 other people?

How could it be?  He was a powerless person, socialized in a certain way.  When poors are abused thusly, we can expect that some of them will kill themselves, some will turn to ordinary crime, some will lash out as he did and then kill themselves, and the great majority will knuckle under and be good obedient servants for 50 years and then die. 

I should think if we are intellectually curious we would want to trace the source of the original socialization rather than waste time with 'blame' for the individual.  We already know that 'he' 'pulled the trigger', now lets move on to some more interesting analysis.
So we're all victims?  Even though we live better lives than anybody in history?
17089  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Should members of the Church of Peyote be allowed to consume mescaline? on: December 09, 2007, 03:04:40 pm
The Twinkie benifits mankind more than mescaline does?  Are you aware of any religons that use the Twinkie as a major aspect of their faith?

But even if there is no good reason to use a substance you can grow in your backyard, why should the govt have any say in whether an adult uses said substance or not?  Maybe Liberty means something different to me.

Narcotics aren't victimless.
Neither are cars, twinkies, tall buildings, beer, air travel or peanut butter.

Are AK-47s legally obtainable (to an individual matching Hawkins' despriction) in Nebraska?
All that is required in Nebraska to purchase a rifle is an adult passing this FBI check(like most states as far as I know).  If he would have passed that (I don't know if he would have.  He did have a "history", so maybe not) he would have been allowed to purchase an SKS.  As was his legal right under the Constitution.

He didn't though, he stole it from his (presumably estranged?) step father.

Bottom 10.

The Great Society was a giant step in creating the monster bureaucracy we have today in the Federal government.  I think only FDR did more.  He didn't stop us from going to the moon, so I guess that's a good thing.  By all accounts, he was a HUGE asshat.
17095  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Are you more conservative or more liberal than your parents? on: December 07, 2007, 02:08:50 am
My mom was a Farming Democrat turned Kennedy Democrat turned Reagan Republican.  My dad has always been kind of straight laced about everything including politics.  Overall I'm probably more "liberal" than my parents, I don't think victimless crimes are crimes and I'm against the Federal govt regulating social issues (whether that regulation comes from the left or the right) both of which my parents come down completely opposite of me.  My mom feels sorry for the poor more than me or my dad does.  We're all pro gun, but I'm MORE pro gun...whatever that means.  We all self identify as conservative though.

Thank you dear Second Amendment.
How does the 2nd play in here?  He didn't get the gun through legal means (as far as anyone knows).

I've heard (no site) that it was an SKS and that he stole it from his step dad.  Just local rumors as far as I know.

edit-verification of SKS...stolen from stepdad still just rumor as far as I know.

If we really wanted to help the people in Darfur we would be petitioning our govt to send the military there.  The only way life is ever going to get better there is if regime change happens.

It should be illegal, BTW.
Why?
