Oh, the outrage!  That free men may spread the good news in savage nations.  Cannot these brave soldiers be likened to the Mormon, who happily goes from house to house preaching the virtues of his holy book?  The outrage ought to be reserved not for the Christian soldier, but for the bleeding heart liberal who stands arm in arm with the Mohammedan.  For them to reject one of the founding principles of this nation - that men ought to have freedom of religion - not freedom from religion - is almost treachery.

If the Mohammedans will reject Christ, peace in the Middle East is but a dream, a chasing after the wind.

Yes, peace can come through Middle East only through the embrace of a religion of peace.  Now it is time for the people of Iraq to make a choiceFor Christ, or against him.
If you're going to rant and make yourself look foolish, at least show your Lord some respect and capitalize "him" when referenceing Him.

She is Bill's last chance at any kind of legacy, so I'm sure he'll push her that way.

There are VERY few reasons to put somebody on ignore in my opinion.  This is one of them.

Which political group is considered open minded?

That's an awfully narrow definition of Libertarian.  I use it more in the "classical liberal" kind of way as, I think, most Libertarians do.  No sane Libertarian would put a yellow ribbon magnet on his/her car.

"Classical Liberal"? Interesting, what's your opinion on Locke's Tabula Rasa or on the Mazzinian notion of the Nation State?
I have yet to form an opinion on the idea of tabula rosa (the idea that we're born as a blank slate and must learn everything, including how to learn), but I like the idea of a nation state. 

I'd like to think that eventually everyone in the world will have all their basic human rights available to them (and protected from future bad guys with vigilance and force), but obviously we are not there yet.  In the mean time the best way to defeat tyranny is to group together as best we can to fight them.  I'm much more against tyranny than I am say, Socialism.  I don't like Socialism, but by itself it can be tolerable.  Totalitarian or authoritarian govts should never be tolerated.

Wiki claims a lot more "factions" in the GOP. cite  But most of them overlap with big three above.  I'm just curious.  I always assumed the left would be friendlier with Libertarians than they would be with Fundies and other more "traditional" Republicans, but recently I've seen a LOT of anti-Libertarian posts.  Culminating with the thread in U.S. GP where left leaning posters are hammering Libertarians and praising Fundies.  I could have sworn that you guys have been bemoaning the Fundies as the worst thing since Hitler for the past 7 years or so, has Ron Paul scared you?  I have a theory or two as to why this is, but I'll wait and see how this turns out.
17109  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Huckabee attacks Libertarianism on: May 30, 2008, 06:06:57 am
But who would rather have in charge of the Republicans? Fundies or Liberties?  I think that would make a good thread.

17110  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: New York State to Recognize Gay Marriages on: May 30, 2008, 01:49:28 am
To be fair, I've never met a homosexual who has stayed in a relationship longer than a month and having lived in the Bay Area, CA and Santa Fe, NM, I have met my fair share.
..and I've known 6 different gays/lesbians and everyone of them was in a relationship for longer than a month while I knew them.  Many gay men are whores, but so are many straight men.

aye.  I really wanted to go to the Air Force Academy, but I was much to lazy.

Concurred with the other two.  I certainly don't dislike you.  It comes across as if you're trying to hard to be liked or something.  Your whole identity comes across like a large "brag".  "King of the Bench Press", can't you imagine what other people thing when they see that name?  Bragging about sh**t on a message board will normally bring most of that message board out against you (unless you've already solidified your position among the forum elite).  You need a few thousand posts before you can start telling people how much money you or your parents make and how expensive of a car you can buy or how much you can lift.  Even then you'll alienate some people.  Liar's and braggarts always piss me off even when I like the person doing it, hell, sometimes it's even me.

Yep, and that's one of the many reasons why they suck so much.
17115  General Discussion / History / Re: Forgotten History: War with Britain? on: May 30, 2008, 12:39:32 am
Well sure and I'd mary Rosie O'Donnel for the money if it wan't for all that other stuff that you need to do there. Smiley
17116  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Iraqis claim Marines are pushing Christianity in Fallujah on: May 30, 2008, 12:36:23 am
Yeah, I know about that stuff.  I just didn't want it to look like the USAF or the military in general was full of Fundies.  It isn't.

How would you know?  Who else would be crazy enough to go into the military?
That's right, you'd know better than I.  Your preconceived notions trump my anecdotal evidence.

re Kerala:

As a state government, it's powers are by definition limited. But the Communist-led LDF (Left Democratic Front) has been willing to go in and out of power peacefully, and they've followed the rules of democracy.
Shocking isn't it?  Communists going in and out of power peacefully.  But aren't they supposed to?  Isn't this like congratulating a father that pays child support?  You're supposed to go in and out of power peacefully and you're supposed to pay child support.

The left likes fundies more than Libertarians?  How odd.....and why?

Cadets still do this kind of thing at the various Academies.

Ya know it's threads like this that make people not like you right?
17122  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Guess the IQ of the Previous Poster on: May 29, 2008, 11:53:20 pm
Your schools use/d IQ scores to see who could take advanced classes?  How odd.  What if you made good grades but preformed poorly on the IQ?  They don't force people with high IQ's into these classes did they? 

I'm nearly positive when I was in High School you actually had to preform to get in the advanced classes.
17123  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Huckabee attacks Libertarianism on: May 29, 2008, 11:44:11 pm
Republican in-fighting. I love it.
They're amateurs compared to the Dems.

As for the OP, I don't care.  The Republicans sold out to the Fundies a long time ago.

17125  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Bush 'plans Iran air strike by August' on: May 29, 2008, 11:01:01 pm
The left's been saying this since about 6 months after Iraq started.  When do we get to stop listening?

Yeah I doubt they will do it in August. If I was Bush I would wait till October 31st. Its Halloween nobody would notice. Also election in a few days. But I am just being a conspiracy theorist aren't I? I hope you are right man but if you are wrong, I blame it on you and other people like you who still think the Bush administration has the country's interests at heart.
You can't blame me, I've never voted for the guy.
