Rhode Island...not even an island...Oklahoma is also pretty ridiculous.

Rhode Island is an island.   Rhode Island and Providence Plantations is a state.

Guard Mounting?  I've never heard of it but it sounds kinky.

Washington should be named something like Columbia, Rainier, Cascadia, Olympia, Salish, etc.

Nookshack, Muckleshoot, Suquamish, Klickitat... lots of good names to choose from.

Seems like a wannabe Robert Morrow to me.

I loved him in Northern Exposure and Quiz Show.

Think about this and tell me if you get it: You have an ear on each side of the head. What's in between them?

Are they popularly elected?

They were appointed by elected officials.

I'd have to side with opposing that then, though not with the dumb arguments about how we don't need libraries anymore.

Deluded for believing in socialism in one country

has there ever been any other kind of socialism?

I've never heard until now of counties having a library board that can raise taxes. 

It's common all over the country.

Are they popularly elected?

I've never had trouble understanding the speech of an Anglophone Canadian so far as I can recall, like I have with the other options.  But I'm not sure what the question is asking.

Not surprising. The guy frequented a gay bar.
92  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Heath Shuler (D) vs. Susan Collins (R) - who would you support? on: June 21, 2016, 12:35:58 am
probably Collins.  I have a vague visceral distrust of Shuler.

I don't think the Mongol Empire believed in borders.
94  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which German party would you vote for? on: June 20, 2016, 05:03:20 pm
Of you mean SPD with the second, then of course them. They still stand for something. Most of the Agenda 2010 reforms were the right thing to do.

I think the second is supposed to be FDP, though it could conceivably be described by a few of these.

I think the third is FDP or Die Linke.

no, it's The Greens.

Not so long as the left treats treat religious people like the right treats foreigners and poors.  I think instead you will see the rise of religious politics which fits less and less comfortably with both the right and the left. 
97  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Majority of Americans support assault weapons ban.... on: June 19, 2016, 11:04:24 pm
The amount of non-military families that possess automatic weaponry is extraordinarily low.

Yes. What does that have to do with this topic though?

Nothing aside from the fact that automatic weaponry is a better term than "assault weapons" for this sort of topic. Maybe I should've clarified my statement: Any semi-automatic modification of an automatic weapon OR automatic weapon.

How is it's origins relevant?  Isn't that sort of like classifying Coca-Cola as a narcotic since it used to have cocaine?  Or advising an alcoholic not to drink Welch's grape juice?

Are there any real arguments as to how an AR-15 is more dangerous than the guns that people would use instead if it were banned?
98  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Update for Everyone IV - Hungover on: June 19, 2016, 09:10:40 pm
last Monday I took my cat into the vet to get her vaccinations and a check up. She hadn't been eating much at all in the past few days at that point, and it turns out she had lost a fair bit of weight.  So the vet took a blood sample for my cat for some tests. I took her home and that night she started eating again, and has been since then. But on Wednesday i heard back about the blood tests, and the vet was concerned, said she has some warning signs for kidney or liver disease or possibly cancer.  So I take her in for an ultrasound tomorrow. I really really hope and pray to God it's not something that can't be treated.  She's so important in my life right now, it would turn my world upside down if anything happened to her. I realize that's a lot of responsibility to place on a cat, but that's how I feel.

What you do in these situations is spit in their food without them knowing. That would have been the appropriate response.

This is disgusting ! Why would you even say this ?
Because liberals can hate at the same levels as conservatives.

Sure. I, for one, enjoy hating you Smiley

Jesus instructed his believers:  "Love your enemies."

 I am a Jewish atheist Smiley

Jesus also said "Love thy neighbor as thyself."  That's incumbent on me, regardless of whether or not it's incumbent on you.

It would have been highly offensive if you, indeed, loved me Smiley However, Since I do not believe you are capable of love, or even know what it is, I am not concerned Smiley Whenever you try to immitate love, you can only produce hate.  Irrespective of your views about the teachings of some ancient yeshiva dropout Smiley

Who are you to say whether someone you barely know is capable of love and who isn't?
