Yes, it's a great idea to have the govt tell businesses what to spend their money on.  It's worked so well in the past.
17102  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you have an accent? on: July 31, 2008, 06:17:38 pm
31 of my 35 years have been in St.Louis or Omaha, so no, I have no accent at all.

Actually, you do.  There is no such thing as someone who doesn't have an accent.  You speak English in a particular way, yes?  Thus, you have an accent.
What's the point of the OP?

That you do, in fact, have an accent.  I thought that was pretty clear.
Yes, you are of course correct.  Why didn't you mention this fact to the dozen or so peolpe that said "no, I don't have an accent" before me?

I'm still curious if you guys would be ok with this if Obama took funds away from any schools that didn't force the uniforms on the kids.

Given how overweight we Americans are compared with citizens of other countries, it is amazing that we live as long as we do. If we further standardized life expectancy by body-mass index, the U.S. lead in health outcomes would likely grow even larger.
Aussies are more overweight than Americans.  cite

As for the people voting for all but crack/meth, etc., I do wonder why you would allow barbiturates, which are considerably more dangerous, addictive, and completely useless since the advent of benzodiazepines.
Ignorance.  It's the same thing that made some of them illegal in the first place.

I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure Muslim extremists have had a lot more "success" (in their eyes) in the last decade compared to the violence brought about by Christian extremists.

Laptops + Windows Vista = disaster2. Assuming you have sh**tsta o/c.
Only a bad consumer would own Vista.  Ok, maybe a sadist.

Nope I think that people would have to really know what they were doing. And  some Americans in my opinion are getting dumber,
You think we would have enough space? People are coming in like a swarm of flys. It would be way to crowded. Especially since you have to kick people out to make more room. Now what?
What do you do when they explode!!
Seriously?  Some Americans are dumb so we can't have things that need to be run by smart people?  We're running out of space?  explode?

I approve of this legislation. 66% of adults in this country are already overweight, half of which are obese. This number is projected to increase to 75% by 2015 and 86% by 2030. We need to withdraw from Iraq and declare war on obesity.
Yes, regulation will solve the problem!  If we're not smart enough to survive life with options, we need the govt to force tjhose options away.  This has always ended well in the past.

God Damned conservatives always using the power of govt to screw over the poor!  We should all learn a lesson here and vote Democratic, they'd never do something like that.

Nah.. conservatives just use the power of corporations... to which the poor are completely powerless.  At least here they can show up to the city council meetings and bitch.
Yeah, we've done this before.  Corporations are so much more horrible than govts, you'd show me examples, but it's just so obvious right?
I haven't heard about many governments purposefully dumping toxic waste near aquifers like say, Metalclad. Or putting plastic into puppy chow. Or any of the other crap you hear about in the news (or not). The truth is both big business and government are potentially oppressive, and they have a tendency to collude together. That's why there need to be simple, clearly defined and impartial rules on both.
And govts have killed many hundreds of millions of people (not even counting war) in the last hundred years through incompetence alone.  Add in malice and you've got another few hundred million dead and that's still not counting wars.  How many people have corporations killed in the same time frame?  How many corporations have sicked dogs on black people?  How many Jews have been shoved into ovens by the phone company?

It's amazing they don't break more often, what with all the fast moving little parts that are constantly being moved back and forth.  The modern laptop as a whole is wonder of modern engineering.  Thank you free market!

One would hope.  He'd have to be pretty naive to not half expect it to happen.  If I was the conspiracy type I'd think he did the whole thing on purpose.

The big question is:what does the anti-Zionist left think of Obama sucking up making nice to the "apartheid" govt?

That was just done to get the blood up in the anti-Zionists (of which there is a little crossover with Obama fan boys).  I'm not tossing the entire Jew press under the bus here.

Eh, it really wouldn't get much in the way of reducing the deficit, more like expand it. For example, MI Tobacco taxes only compensate for 10-20% of the health care costs incurred for Tobacco-related illnesses.

The good thing about the Olberman's, Hannity's and Rush's of the world is that you can instantly dismiss anybody that thinks highly of them.

Obama's Prayer Excavated from Cracks of Western Wall and Published in Newspaper
July 25, 2008 10:19 AM

There are conversations between a man and his wife, a patient and his doctor, a client and his attorney... But this is about as intrusive as it gets.

After Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, left a written prayer in the cracks of the Western Wall in Jerusalem, a Jewish seminary student dug it out and the newspaper Ma'ariv published it (assuming of course that the note is the correct one).

The note Ma'ariv published -- written on stationery from the King David Hotel, where Obama stayed -- states: "Lord - Protect my family and me. Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will."

Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitz, the rabbi of the Wall who accompanied Obama on his visit there told Israeli Army Radio, per the AP, that "the notes placed between the stones of the Western Wall are between a person and his maker. It is forbidden to read them or make any use of them." Ma'ariv's decision to publish the note "damages the Western Wall and damages the personal, deep part of every one of us that we keep to ourselves," he said.

More at link because it's not cool to cut and paste an entire article...ahem.

This is like recording a prayer.  Not cool.  I hope the kid gets kicked out of Rabbinical school.  The paper should be shunned by the people of Israel.  Total lack of integrity by both.

How do you not wear shorts?  Are you embarassed of your legs?  I'd never put on pants if I could help it.
17125  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: School uniforms on: July 30, 2008, 12:29:10 am
What if Obama took away school funds from schools that didn't comply with the new Federal School Uniform policy?  Would that be ok?
