76  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What's taking so long for Puerto Rico to become a state? on: January 13, 2014, 02:28:25 pm
the major reason is of course that the Puerto Ricans themselves do not want to become independant.

This isn't rhetorical, but aren't they mostly independent now?  Perhaps even moreso than the states?

Bah, I meant to say they don't want to become a state. >.< (My bad)
Not that they want to become independent either.
They like having US citizenship but not have to pay federal taxes.

I real pity to loose you Al, you are the greatest mod.
I really hope the personal stuff will work itself out. The great insight and knowledge you bring on political geography and history is literally (and I mean this word in its literal meaning) the best thing on this whole forum.

As for the successor, both Antonio and Frankenburger would be great.

I don't think anyone votes for the Moderates or the Alliance because of Beatrice Ask, but despite Beatrice Ask.

Well, maybe Ask and her family, but besides that no one I've met have considered her to be competent at her job. (Then again I hang a lot at Law School so...)

Just goes to show that the old jokes about you guys are accurate. Wink

Beatrice Ask is not comparable to the rest of the Swedish people.
As a matter of fact she's from Jämtland, which historicly has stronger ties to Norway than Sweden.
So if anything, it should prove our old jokes. Wink

His strong principles and his constant belief in a better world. I might not agree with him on most of it, but you know he doesn't change his opinion just to suit certain people or situations and he truly believe the world can be a better place.

Berlusconi, probably, is for the Spanish system

Berlusconi, just this once, would be right.

People take this forum way too seriously.
88  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Are you a virgin? on: January 05, 2014, 08:33:07 am
I've had about 80. Is that actually seriously weird for here?

That's seriously weird for everywhere. Tongue
(Though if you're a hot gay Scot why not. I couldn't say no to one of those)

Most people my age I know IRL, including myself, gay and straight seem to have had between 10-20. Anyway, the number of persons isn't really relevant, the amount and quality is far more important.

I'd prefer really great sex with one person on several occasions, than to one-night stands with 10 average to bad persons.

Um, obviously freedom animals, anyone who says otherwise is ignorant of human history in general. Without horses, we would still be cavemen. Literally.

Human development is just enabling of Capitalism anyway.

Oh and my opinion of BRTD increased tremendasly seing him use celsius. Wonderful. Now we just have to convert the rest of the US.

There is no way this thread will go well.

How would you define 'not well', prude?- if there are any non-virgins?

The prospect of "this thread not ending well" certainly included you making a moronic comment involving the word "prude".
94  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of Horses on: January 02, 2014, 05:59:07 pm
Have any of you been near them? I visited my Aunts neighbor's property in Vero and saw them up close. Their huge, and I rather not get kicked to death by one of them. Freedom animals, but I keep my distance from them.

Yes, I used to ride them. (Well actually still do now and then) ^^ My dad comes from a long line of horse breeders, and two of his uncle still breed horses. Actually my parents met in the stable, so I own my whole excistence to horses. Smiley

Also Sanchez, you should know better. They're huge, not their huge. Tongue (Teens these days)

Freedom animal.



Majestic, loyal, strong, an essential part of human development through history.
What would we have done with-out them. 
96  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Opinion of Horses on: January 02, 2014, 04:20:53 pm
In light of this post, we were in need of this poll.

Horses are horrible creatures and should be wiped out. I support anything that will make their presence less felt.

Option 1 (normal).

What?!

Really Antonio? I never thought you'd be one of those people... <.<





Option 3, I couldn't live with-out neither bacon nor asparagus. 
98  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: De Blasio seeks to ban Horse-Drawn Carriage rides in Central Park on: January 02, 2014, 03:32:27 pm
The horses are inspected regularly and treated well, so it's only hardcore animal activists who have a real problem with it. The one legit problem is that horses have been hit by cars on the outskirts of park, and a few have died. It just seems common sense to me to keep them off the streets. It's a disaster to have large animals that can be spooked in one of the busiest cities in the country. The park is an ideal place for them.

So as I suspected, your solution is the sensible one.
Alas, too bad common sense rarely ever prevails in politics these days.

Yeah, I also think a S+MP minority coalition working across the aisle would be the most likely out-come if the left doesn't have its own majority, and in my view I actually wouldn't mind that so much. I could live with a wing-clipped compromising left government.

I don't really understand why people are so animated about this.  But, I suppose anything involving animals gets yuppies into a frenzy. 

I'm not really sure who you are, but this statement might jus have made you one of my favourite posters. Wink

This is obvious pandering to vegetarian latte-liberals who know nothing about horses.
The horses who draw these carriages have been bred and trained to do this, and get no harm from it.

Now Rays proposal to give them a more limited area to be in, would probably be a good idea, mostly for traffic reason.

Could someone who knows a bit about NYC local politics give a prediction on how the council will vote on this?
