3251  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.

Because he presided over very good times.

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.

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.

Which version of Batman? He has many incarnations, in animation, film, and of course comic books.

And would he really pick a fascist like Iron Man as a VP? I don't know who else he would pick though, because most of his "family" live in New Jersey too.

OP/Mod, could you change the title of this thread? It's been days, so this isn't exactly breaking news.

Tear it down completely, and build a holocaust memorial museum in its place. 

There's too many of those.
3265  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Are you a member of the "neo-fascist loony left"? on: June 27, 2013, 05:08:45 pm
Some classic J. J. quotes that I can't believe weren't discovered until now recently surfaced in some thread that was bumped, where he uses this term, and basically uses the criteria for it as "supporting gay marriage".

So yeah based on this definition call me a neo-fascist!

Give us a link or it didn't happen.

Republican voters (and especially self-described conservatives) continue to hate gays with all the soul and all their heart and all their might. The Republican politicians are indeed extremely annoyed. Their primary tool for getting workers to vote against their own interests no longer works in much of the country. Though it remains highly effective in other areas. But I have no doubt that they will continue to support oppression and indignity by whatever convenient means in the future. At the moment, it seems like we are returning to the ancient ballad of "States Rights." Why does that sound so darn familiar?
Maybe because Democrats used it to support Jim Crow.
3267  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Nelson Mandela NOT dead on: June 27, 2013, 03:04:21 pm
It is also important to note that Mandela has done more for the cause of ridding the world of AIDs more than anyone I can think of off the top of my head. The man was a freaking saint.



Bush?
3268  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What will be the next states to give gays the right to marry? on: June 27, 2013, 02:56:33 pm
Illinois, Oregon, Hawaii will probably be the next states to do so.

New Jersey will do it whenever they get a Democratic Governor, same goes for Michigan, provided that they have a majority in both chambers of the legislature. Virginia will be the first Southern state to make it legal.

SCOTUS probably makes it legal everywhere the minute it gets a progressive majority.

Is he still considered a terrorist by either government?

You know JCL, shouldn't you be excited about this, with all the sins of mankind becoming acceptable, which in turn brings forth the Second Coming?

I know that these things are signs of the Second Coming as it talks about in 2 Timothy 4:1-5 yet it saddens me and other Christians as well.
So you don't want Jesus to return?

Bad news folks, turns out those who are in Civil Unions that are marriage in all but name can't get married.
3274  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Maps on gay marrige polls from The Atlantic on: June 26, 2013, 04:44:29 pm
These guys mapped out polls on gay marriage in the other 37 states:

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2013/06/gay-marriage-state-polls-mapped-ranked/66626/

The polls might be skewed; I highly doubt that there are more supporters in Oklahoma than every other state in the South (Minus Virginia)
3275  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What will be the next states to give gays the right to marry? on: June 26, 2013, 04:32:21 pm
I'm going to go out on a limb and say mine will be the first red state to do the flip. For all we vote Republican in national elections, we're not a socially conservative state. I mean, even under our most right-wing gubernatorial administration in a long time, the state government disappears anti-abortion ads regularly.

Plus, we're apparently somehow more gay-friendly per capita than Maryland, which has SSM.

That's because more people live in Maryland then Wyoming.
