Think he's an FF if you like, but implying that this particular remark is a Freedom Statement or an in any way reasonable, accurate, or acceptable one is absolute nonsense.

Are you Jewish by any chance?

I'm confused, lean ban.

Posted that during my Hifly-blubbing.

Without the strictest discipline and highest expectations my parents enforced, I never would have obtained my organ scholarship to Oxford University.

Are there polls on whether Austrians would support a return to the glory days?

A claim that if true just makes your opposition to gay marriage more jarring because their opposition has the benefit of making sense.

So you accept religious opposition to gay marriage as a valid reason?

The only valid opposition to gay marriage is opposition to the archaic construct in its entirety. Anything else is recycling engrained dogma or bigotry.


I simply believe that marriage is a traditional institution which should not be sullied through arbitrary redefinition. I like the homosexuals and I have homosexual friends. But I do not support them having the ability to enter matrimony.

Joe Republic, please stop trying to insult me. Whether you like it or not, I was accepted to the greatest university in the world on an organ scholarship; the only reason you interpret me as being boastful about it is because how much you bring it up and force me to respond.

First, it's not me.  I'd never create a sock, no matter how much I want to.  And second, I never said that Democrats of today are racist, at least not like they used to be.  I simply stated a well-established historical fact, which is that Democrats have had a long history of supporting racist policies like slavery and Jim Crow laws.  There are plenty of current Democrat policies I oppose as well, such as redistribution of wealth and abortion on demand.

If only they did support that!

Small business owners (along with certain underclass elements) are by far the most prone to far-right ideology, as history has taught us.
14  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Only rich folks go to Congress on: Today at 04:15:29 am
Elections are the source of this problem; if you want working class people in government, you have to fundamentally change how politicians are chosen. The Athenian democracy did not have elections to the extent that we do. Athenians distrusted election because it almost always hands power to the rich. The real solution is to forego elections in favor of random selection of officeholders.

I've though about autarky and I'm iffy. But at the very least make elections as democratic as possible--no campaign spending allowed whatsoever and ensure that officeholders can be recalled by their constituents at any time, and in general bring in Nix's proposals.

Surely you mean demarchy? Autarky is cutting off foreign trade.

LOL, I did. Just saw my original post again from it being quoted in Foucaulf's signature.
15  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Opinion of Hamas on: Today at 04:11:53 am
The latest round of rocket attacks were retaliation for an Israeli airstrike meant directly to provoke them--combined with the fact that we now know that the kidnapping was a lone wolf attack and that the Netanyahu regime knew from the beginning that the kids were dead, declaring Hamas more terroristic than Israel is difficult.

They are on the AlternateHistory.com message board, so it's not unheard of for a reasonable level-headed forum to enact such a rule.

I didn't know that was the case although I remember they banned the thelyniezien for constantly bringing up the subject.

Didn't the AH mods ban you?

Yes but because I was an immature p**** a half-decade ago.

You're allowed to say penis again, friend. Inks isn't moderator anymore.

Evidently Inks spends most of his free time reporting posts with profanity according to MODLEAKS on the IRC.

Delaware's three counties were originally the three southern counties of Pennsylvania, but they seceded when Pennsylvania was going to ban slavery--therefore, Pennsylvania was a northern/"free" state while Delaware was considered a southern/"slave" state.

There are plenty of posters who've posted more awful things without getting banned.

Okay, Feldmarschall.

The destruction of the state of Israel and its replacement by a secular, socialist, and democratic Palestine, with equal rights for all and special privileges to none.
