Why does the government hate its people?
3252  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of naming things after Ronald Reagan on: July 14, 2013, 01:46:07 pm
I'm opposed to naming anything after anyone who hasn't been dead for at least half a century.

That rules out every president since Hoover other than FDR.

If anything, LBJ was against civil rights for political expediency during his time in the senate. He really did care about blacks, he just couldn't show it while he was a senator. In 1964, he had no fear of getting re-elected; so he did it then.

Take a guess.

Saddam had been dead for five years by the time the Iraq war ended, and OBL has been dead for two years.

Awful. I Facebook ranted about it last week.

'So Superman was unbelievably dull. I felt you hardly got to know him at all (other than the fact he hasn't painted his mothers house which he could do in about 2 seconds, the selfish little sh-t) and the film was essentially carried by two of his dead dads. That and the thick spread of 'Jesus' throughout the whole thing which left you with that 'aw no' aftertaste of a cheap film on Hallmark where the guy prays at the end and you feel bad for having ever watched it. Kudos to Russell Crowe who at least didn't attempt to sing.'

So they went with the "Superman is Jesus" angle again?

Well it's true and obvious.

FF.  There's a reason they called his presidency the "Era of Good Feelings."

I don't get it.
3264  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: How did Nixon win a majority of woman voters in 1960!? on: July 08, 2013, 07:25:42 pm
They weren't shallow enough to only vote for a man for his looks back then.

Thank you for posting stupid things directly into your thread, bruv:

The civil rights movement had long ended by 1990
Well, what I meant was that segregation had been long since solved as an issue by then.

Ehhhh...

That looks more like classism to me.

Wasn't JPII's canonization reported years ago?

There's still time for a 50's president.
I don't think anyone currently in the running was born in the fifties.

Every decade from the 1730's to the 1960's has at least one president born in it except these three. What happened? Were all of them too extreme or unpopular?

America deserves better than pictures of bimbos.
3270  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why is JFK still so beloved by the Left? on: July 04, 2013, 02:22:48 am
Liberals don't really have a singular patron saint the way the Right has Ronald Reagan

FDR?

He was too long ago. He died before most of todays politicians were born.

No, let's unban someone like Engzine who had a change of heart.
3272  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why is JFK still so beloved by the Left? on: July 03, 2013, 04:58:17 pm
Because he presided over very good times.
3273  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: The official Oldiesfreak thread on: July 03, 2013, 01:48:39 pm
For the same reason he's still so beloved by Americans in general.  He was young and charismatic, and more importantly, he got assassinated.

It fits the narrative of the young, courageous (right), crusading liberal President, struck down in his prime as he was about to change the world, end the war in Vietnam (right), pass Civil Rights, etc.
But only after the March on Washington made him do it.  During that march, he expressed concern that the demonstrators would "sh*t" on the Washington Monument.

So no.

Uh, only posting the bad is not a good argument. Show me some pictures of the good they did.

(Someone else can too)
3275  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Why do people cite Timothy McVeigh as an example of a "Christian terrorist"? on: June 30, 2013, 08:42:48 pm
I'll mention the obvious that the KKK are Christian Terrorists. Mostly in the 3rd major incarnation (Civil Rights Era).

The WBC may qualify as terrorists too.
