Liberapedia gives the opinions of American Liberals and left leaning people worldwide. Liberapedia aims to entertain as well as educate. Some of the articles are serious. Other articles are satirical and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. Yet more articles mix truth with satire. We hope users will like to contribute to Liberapedia and will enjoy reading articles.
Liberapedia is always trying to grow bigger. If you want to add to it, feel free, but make the articles ridiculously liberal, yet make them claim that they are neutral. Otherwise it's not funny and you should just go to Wikipedia. Our aim is to create an wiki that is both relatively factual and funny at the same time. It is important to remember that Liberapedia is not just another joke wiki like Uncyclopedia.

Liberapedia is a trustworthy resource for those seeking truthful and accurate information about liberal beliefs, which have been proven to be better (with SCIENCE!) than all other points of view. Well it's more trustworthy than Conservapedia anyway. If you feel you can improve the Wiki, please do. Conservative deceit and propaganda will not be tolerated here: if you try to sneak any of that in you will regret you ever did.

Feel free to add stuff, and thanks for visiting!

Sure, they are "more right" than the UK or Australia, but they still have room to grow.

I know I flip-flop a lot, but I'm just a kid. <snip> I don't know a lot. I'm not as smart as most people here. My views keep on changing, because I keep seeing a different side of everything. Hopefully, at least by the time I can vote, I'll be more consistent.
You'll be a yellow in <3 years.  You fit the pattern.  Don't rush yourself though, the path is more fun than the destination.  Good luck.

(and never become too consistent and keep looking at things from a different angle)

They won't do it without serious help (covert or overt) from the PRC.  If the tubby midget does go off on his own it will suck for the Korean peninsula, at least in the short term.  In the long term it will...hopefully, if the PRC lets them, will become a much better place.

But even if Our Dear Midget does go off half cocked it's very likely a good chunk of his military are going to start carving up bed sheets and looking for sticks to wave them with.  Hopefully his nukes suck or we shoot them down or they fall into the sea....I'm sure the guys in charge of that are loyal to the regime.

Odds of a war involving N.Korea in the next decade=<5%
Odds of a war involving N.Korea but NOT the PRC in the next decade=<2%

opebo, thank you for always being here to educate us on the various social classes in the US.  We should all be thankfull we have such an expert on our message board.  Always willing to drop into any thread about the poor to tell us they have no chance at all to move up in life, how 80% (or was it 90?) of us are in this group and the top 10-20% (of which opebo is part) knowingly keep their collective boot on the throat of the masses.  We're too brainwashed here to see it though, only opebo has managed to remove the rose colored (coloured) glasses and has seen America for what she actually is.

Thank you again sir.

Obama lived in a majority-Muslim country in his youth....

In fact, he was even born in one!
Evidence?

Evidence that he wasn't?
snopes

Not that anything will change the mind of somebody so willfully ignorant as to believe this particular conspiracy theory.

Recidivism is always going to be high, there is a reason these people went to crime in the first place and most of the time those reasons only get bigger/stronger while they are in prison.

Sadly I don't see a practical solution either.  There are some things we can do though.  Change how we fight or stop the war on drugs.  Keep telling black dudes that getting a girl pregnant and then taking off is one of the worst things a person can do.  Change the public school system...get some kids into vocational training earlier (if they want it).

Aye...forgot about them.  They are nearly always in or near the sh**t part of town.  Several reasons for that I'm sure....cheaper to buy, neighbors have less money to fight putting it there in the first place, closer to manual labor type jobs.
17109  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Canada becoming a libertarian paradise? on: May 27, 2009, 02:46:58 am
Increased spending is (almost) always ridiculous, but yeah, I agree with you.  That's why I don't vote for "lesser of two evil" Republicans and Democrats.

Well sure, but an entity includes people and groups of people.  The people half is more important than the "groups of people" half, but the "groups of people" half is still important enough to warrant a mention.

You can have maximum freedom and liberty with a lot of govt intervention? 

Of course it's not a black and white issue (less govt intervention=more freedom is clearly not universally true), but generally speaking, the fewer the rules, the more freedom an entity has.
17113  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Canada becoming a libertarian paradise? on: May 27, 2009, 02:34:23 am
Just a note than those numbers are false now. Conservative party has spend all the sulplus. Next budget is in a deficit 50 billions.
Aye, this year will be a deficit.....a small one.  In the middle of a horrid economy.  Meanwhile the US's is well over a trillion.

I don't think they release criminals to a location.  The criminals are released and they go home...."home" for criminals is almost always in poor areas.

Maybe.  If he was in the gifted program you'd be ok with him and his family saying no?  What if he was a normal 16 year old (I know he isn't 16)?

  • Govt spending in Canada was 53% of GDP in 92, now it's 39%.  The US dropped all the way to 33% by 2000 and is 38% now.   Next year we pass them.
  • In 1994 Canada's debt was 70% of GDP, now it's 32%.  We were down to 33% in 2001, but we'll make it to 60% next year and will likely top 80% by the time Obama's 2nd term is up.
  • Canada has had a surplus for ten years in a row.  The idea of a surplus is absurd in the US.
  • Pension plans are fixed and funded in Canada, discussing it by politicians is off limits in the US.
  • Only 41% of govt in Canada is controlled at the Federal level, it's 62% in the US and always growing.
  • Canada's corporate tax rate has been traditionally higher than the US's, not no mo'.  by 2012 it will be HALF what we have and individual tax rates are really close right now, will be even closer when Bush's tax cuts for the rich expire next year and if Obama adds any more (likely) theres will be lower than ours.
Mostly from here.

Sure they aren't as free when it comes to guns, but that's a wash because they are more free with pot and whores.  Is it time to start looking for work in Alberta?

There will always be the "worst word in the English language".


edit-and by that I mean "nigger" of course
17118  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Boy's family refuses cancer treatment on: May 27, 2009, 01:52:51 am
I'm still not comfortable with the government forcing medical treatment on people.
AYE!

Wait....is "faggot" offensive again?

yeah, we tried the whole word reclamation thing, and it worked for dyke, queer and fairy, but not for faggot.
Well that sucks.  I hate "off limits" words.

Who thinks corporations or individuals can't restrict freedom?  I think maybe you should take ilikeverin's advice.

They usually start the fires don't they?

And I thought cities were spreading them throughout the town instead of piling them on top of each other.  Gives them a nice, steady level of crime throughout the city instead of focusing it on one small part.

The most amazing part is that these people HATE drugs, yet are clearly on something.

Really though, it's an embarrassment to conservatives everywhere.  Group ignorance is both funny and sad.

I really don't understand why you in particular label yourself a 'conservative'. Conservatism and libertarianism are fundamentally askance worldviews.
Because I'm weird.  I still like guns and Jews.  I don't hate Christians.  My economics. 

I'd love to take back the word "liberal", but that's not going to happen.
