17101  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Is leftism pro-Islam? on: March 07, 2008, 02:26:25 am
The left isn't pro Islam.  Many on the far left are anti-Israel (note I didn't say anti-semitic...though some of them are) and thus have a lot of common ground with many extremist Muslim Fundie organizations.  There were a LOT of hijab's at the handfull of peace rally's a few years ago (why'd you guys stop doing peace marches?  There is a lot more to do now than there was in 1969 I guess.  "Hey, peace march today you going?"  "nah, Oprah is on").  A.N.S.W.E.R. is certainly pro Islam, but many on the left distance themselves from them (as they should) in the same way right leaning groups distance themselves from the KKK.

So no, the "left" isn't pro-Islam.  Though some on the left share a hatred of the state of Israel with many Muslims.

Good.  This will get us off the evil foreign oil sooner rather than later.  Right?  Isn't that what we all want?
17104  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Venezuela, Ecuador send troops to Columbian border on: March 07, 2008, 12:26:47 am
So in the end while Colombia has a major advantage in the number of men currently in uniform the Venezuelans have a very large edge when it comes to military equipment, especially when it comes to the Air Force.
Air superiority trumps everything else in modern war.

It wouldn't be a big deal if his sig wasn't a screen and a half long.  Do you really need three (3!) pictures as your sig?  3?
17106  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: what web browser/operating system are you using on: March 07, 2008, 12:07:21 am
Depends on where I'm at.  My main box is running XP and IE7, but very little of my internet browings are done from there.  All the work machines run Win2k (what I ran everywhere at home until just recently.  2k is the best OS Microsoft has ever made, by far.  Most of the good of XP without most of the bad.) with IE7.  I've got an Ubuntu box running in the basement, but I never use it for surfing.  I've also got an K6-2 550Mhz running 2k in the basement, that's where I do most of my forum whoring.

Why do I have the feeling some of the jackasses around here are going to say this is a good thing?  At least it makes spotting the violent, authoriatarian leftists easier.

It doesn't matter, if they stay, they'll be assimilated just like everybody else has been.

If I got enough money, hell yeah. I'm sure he'd take the opportunity to be able to stay in Thailand without returning to the US or working for years in exchange for writing up a little bit of witty dialogue.
Witty?  There are a million adjectives you could throw at opebo's posts and you chose witty?  Do you know what witty means?
17111  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Is it hypocritical to defend Ralph Nader and occasionally gamble? on: March 04, 2008, 06:58:35 am
Is this like owning pets and giving money to PETA (they hate pets)?  Is Nader anti gambling?  Like the Christian Fundies?  How odd.

17114  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Minister warns of ‘inbred’ Muslims on: March 04, 2008, 06:35:51 am
Woolas, who represents the ethnically mixed seat of Oldham East and Saddleworth
a seat with a long embedded BNP vote, and the less Islamic seat in Oldham...
has previously warned that Muslim women who wear headscarves could provoke “fear and resentment”.
LOL! What a dumbster bigot... "AARGH! She's wearing a headscarf! HELP! HELP! MOMMY!" That kind of "fear"?
I'm guessing the Muslim woman not wearing a headscarf might get a little nervous if she starts seeing more and more of them around her neighborhood.
17115  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should Minnesota return Virginia's Confederate battle flag? on: March 03, 2008, 03:13:13 am
Just because both groups had racism and war as a major parts of their essence doesn't mean they had a lot of other things in common.  Tik, can you list some non-racist things Nazi Germany and the Confederate States of America had in common?  I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just saying I haven't seen the evidence showing you're right.

I don't know why you're asking me, I'm not advocating anything. But if you want I could make something up Smiley
You're right, my mistake.  Go ahead and make something up though.  Maybe the Nazi's and the Confederates both had extremely large, but hidden, hardcore gay clubs?  Or both were big promoters of sport fishing?  Maybe they both were innovative in submarine warfare?  Or took new strides in undergarment fashion?

Ugh. Loads and loads of great countries, and 300,000 inbred fishermen in the lead.
Iceland is the Alabama of Europe?  I always thought that it was Romania or Bulgaria or something like that.  I love finding out what Euro's feel about other Euro's, it's so fascinating to me.  Has there ever been a thread about it?
17118  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should the penny be abolished? on: March 03, 2008, 02:56:39 am
I'd like to know whatever happened to 50 cent pieces.  I mean, I used to get them all the time.  Now, almost never.  I thought they were great!
Everybody collected them out of existence or gave them to their grand kids who shoved them in their underwear drawer never to be seen again.  At least that's where I kept the 2 or 3 I had as a child.  They did it right with the quarters, they made so freggin many of each that they will never be collectable.  If only Americans would embrace the dollar coin like all sane peoples everywhere.  Actually, it probably doesn't matter anymore...who carries cash?  I keep a $20 bill in my coat pocket for emergencies (like $20 would help in an emergency:) ) but never ever use it.  It's all debit or credit card anymore.

The Salvation Army claims they would lose millions of dollars in donations each year if we abolished the penny. Why do you all hate poor people?
Mainly its the smell....but the reasons are varied and numerous.
17120  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Battle of the States: ROUND 3~! ===New Mexico vs North Carolina=== on: March 03, 2008, 02:50:01 am
I have no good reasons to vote for or against either one.  Yawn.  They have both have interesting geography I guess.  New Mexico has more unique geography as there are about 20 states with rolling mountains and a billion tree's like N.Carolina boasts and only a few with NM's varied topography.  I've been in NC, but I was to young to remember.  My smokes come from there, so that's good.  On the flip side, NM's never left the union so they could continue using people as property.  Then again I'm pretty sure Bill the Kid died in NM.

I'm going to go with NC because it has a better shape.

One of my cousin's did my mom's dad's ancestory once back to England and the family there had done one pretty far back.  I just casually looked for the hardcopy of the family tree, but I cna't find it.  It went pretty far back.

We don't know dick about dad's side other than that there German.  I suspect some American Bund members or something Smiley
