I think I've golfed 18 holes one to two times, and my family used to own a fishing boat. How should I answer?
3  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Is abortion and equal rights issue? on: April 27, 2015, 09:32:10 pm
"Equal rights" is a term defined almost entirely by those that agitate in their name. As such, males, whites, cops, etc. are never going to be in a genuine position to have dialogue on them because whatever they concede will never be enough, since they don't determine what "equal rights" means--"meaning" itself being the mere perception of a definition. Whatever actually is or isn't discrimination, racism, sexism, that doesn't matter, because we'll never know. As such, I refuse to appraise equality (or diversity, etc., for that matter) as something that is objectively good and what must be sought for by all of society. No, I don't think abortion is a matter of sexism or "equality", though I can understand why someone might think it is, or how someone else could use it. That's all irrelevant. My perspective as a white, conservative, male is never going to matter to activists and, as such, I'm not sure why their opinion should matter to me. It's not a matter of genuinely changing minds and hearts, or even being right or doing something good--those are all subjective and, at the end of the day, arbitrary; we haven't even proven that human life is objectively good as a phenomenon--it's about successfully enacting the policies that you want. Screw the ideology.

Final grades are in. 3.78 Winter 2015 semester GPA with a 3.43 cumulative. Five A's and a B-. One more good semester like this and hopefully I'll finally be above a 3.5 cumulative, which I need to get the weird Latin words on my diploma as an Honors student.

My preferred way of displaying political knowledge is through weird references to past presidential administrations.

8  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Would you rather live in Oklahoma City or Detroit? on: April 25, 2015, 11:48:16 pm
God, this thread. Detroit, obviously. In general, I prefer to be comfortable in multiple layers of clothing, and not worrying about sweating in "normal" weather. Normal security procedures will keep most of your crap safe in the neighborhood I'm stuck in right now, and that's hardly the only area of Detroit. Midtown's nice, for example. I don't recall being shot yet. And I work night security right now and have yet to see "incidents". In any case, your entertainment can be derived from bars, venues for various genres of music, and other adult things.

11  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Your politics and stance on equal rights for women? on: April 25, 2015, 10:31:22 pm
In the general sense, doesn't your description of "equal rights for women" imply that they'd be progressive in the first place? As such, this is a rather pointless poll, it seems.

While I'm a patriotic American I have to go with Ontario considering Toronto isn't the hellhole and epitomie of urban decay that Detroit is.

I really don't know where you guys get these ideas. I'll assume part of it is racism. Terrified of the image of a large black man, you're sent screaming like a little girl into the arms of the harmless white flannel-wearers to the north.

Apathetic. I guess I'd feel positive since it would make for entertainment and remove a powerful incumbent from office. But overall, it doesn't make that much a difference on my life.

I guess I'm now a junior in college. That last exam was rough. Jesus Christ, learn how to ask a question for God's sake. 'Nother 18 credits down. How many I take in the fall will depend on what my grades look like, though I'm planning on 18 again.

Both pits, but the Michigan shoreline makes up for it a bit. Voted Michigan.

Pits!?

That's right.

I would absolutely just love if you and the other trolls in this thread explained yourselves.

I like this comparison.  It's probably pretty accurate.

Liddy had served in two presidential cabinets, was the wife of a US Senator, and ran the Red Cross.

A person, why did you take the time to decapitalise J-Mann's sentences?

i didn't, it's a browser extension :p

I'm curious to ascertain why one would choose to use this particular browser extension.

And X Cathcon. This guy's nuts.

4O'Donnell would finish the war with France, presiding over the leveling of Paris with 'rods from god' (i.e. kinetic energy weapons fired from space).

Have you been reading Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Strikes Again" recently?

I'm not familiar with it, no

Entertaining work, but a far cry in terms of quality from its prequel, "The Dark Knight Returns". Long story short, Lex Luthor makes reference to gigantic metal rods being fired from space cannons, shot into the ground. I don't think they were intended for targets so much as to cause globe-wide disruption of seismic activity and create general death and destruction. Thought it might have inspired your choice of weaponry. "Rods from God", love it.

Are you or your editorial staff in fear of the liberal dandies calling you homophobes for your use of terms like "liberal dandy"? And hey, I once read a book by Sarah Palin. What're you tryin'a say?

Solid debate. Looking forward to the results. Were the results of the WMP convention made public? If not, then how has Hokey not been taken to task for knowing Duke's take of the delegates?
