9/11 should be a day of rememberence, but Patriots Day isn't the right name for it.

Option 1. Vinyl is awesome. I have a few records but still can't find a turntable. My best friend's collection is massive. He has everything. Whenever I come across records, I usually buy him one. I usually go for weird stuff like Chuck Mangeone, etc.

I assume the comments about poor people are true. They actually make me like Hollande more.

I also think poor people are mostly awful and largely responsible for their own plight. I'm a socialist but mostly because I think people are too stupid to live their own lives. They need the government to keep them from falling into outright squalor.
You sir, are a horrible, horrible person. The new "worst."
54  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Kate Middleton pregnant with baby #2 on: September 10, 2014, 08:41:23 pm
Its terrible that the Royal baby news was completely overshadowed by the video of a football player knocking his girlfriend out and dragging her out of the elevator like a caveman.

In 5 or 20 years no one will remember the creep and his biz-nitch but the unborn baby will be in the news all the time. I'm serious, there has been Zero news coverage on American TV about this (at least that I've seen).

I wonder if its less of a story this time because this baby is the proverbial "spare" and therefore not as buzzworthy.

P.S.: Why are they cramming the pregnancies so close together? Prince George and his sibling will only be about 20 months apart. Kate has another 20 years in which to have children.
First of all, I have more of a chance of getting with Abby Huntsman than this kid has getting the throne. I don't see why we should be as interested here as we were for Prince George, which was actually news.

Back just in time for another epic 9/11 story, I see?

There's also a "T".
Again, when transgendered people come up in conversation, I refer to them as how they wish to be addressed. Just because someone is not straight doesnít mean they must be relegated to acronym. People are individuals, and I refer to them (and their sexual orientation) as such.
58  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which term do you prefer? on: September 10, 2014, 06:11:27 pm
LGBT (normal)

It is much, much easier to say it this way, but the simple term "gay" is what I use.

But...it doesn't mean just gay.
When I come across a bisexual person in the news or in my personal life, I'd say they are bisexual. But I don't use the term "LBGT" in conversation because most people don't know or don't care about the term. If a man marries a man, or a woman marries a woman, it is a gay wedding. It is a simple phrase that no longer carries a negative connotation, no need for such severe political correctness (seeing as it is perfectly correct to use the term "gay" in most circumstances).

Dixiecrat runs as a populist, southern conservative. Governs similar to a combination of Rand Paul and Rick Perry, and is widely hated by the left. He wins a very close reelection, and his administration is shaped by his blunt language and attempts at various domestic initiatives.
62  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: It's been 13 years on: September 10, 2014, 05:45:29 pm
It’s been thirteen years. I was five years old and watched towers falling, people jumping to their deaths, and the Pentagon burning. I saw humanity at its worst, and like most posters in my age group, it is burned into our memory. In fact, it is my earliest vivid political memory.

That being said, it has been thirteen years. I am over it. I will briefly pause to think about it, but as time goes on, so does life. So no, I will not be removing my avatar and I encourage everyone to do the same. Getting teary eyed over an event so long ago is exactly what Osama Bin Laden would want us to do.

I don't intend to, but IIRC, isn't illegal to watch these videos? Or is that only in the UK?

After winning election on a populist economic platform of lower taxes, single-payer health care, and withdrawal from NAFTA and other free-trade agreements, (and after his enraged questioning of his hawkish opponent "would you join and fight yourself?!" over and over again in the foreign policy debate went viral), his approval ratings plummet when his administration is revealed to be incredibly corrupt, and investigative reporters uncover the President's former ties to the white nationalist website Stormfront, as well as many other past comments deemed offensive to minorities and immigrants. In a desperate attempt to win reelection, the now borderline sociopathic President is caught in a Watergate-style scandal and impeached.

Several years after his impeachment, it is discovered that Sanchez had foolishly taped all of his conversations in the White House. After the tapes are released, it becomes clear that he was even crazier than previously thought, and often speculated to his advisors about the existence of a globalist conspiracy to assassinate him and establish a "New World Order." He also frequently made racist, xenophobic, and anti-Semitic comments in jest, though this revelation may have actually improved and cemented his reputation in the public memory as a lovable, hilariously politically incorrect buffoon who, despite being a buffoon, was still our buffoon.
Minus the corruption part, this is perfect. If I could find the clapping gif, I'd use it. That last line is exactly how I want to be remembered!

Edit: Also, I never had any connection to StormFront. I just lurked from time to time in my worst phase. I'd pardon myself and resign with a bang, and the taping will be intentional to create the image of "buffoon."

A boat crashed on the Intracoastal about 100 yards from my house. No serious injuries, but it made the news and the helicopter has been buzzing above my house all evening.
67  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: The Confession Booth: Post something very personal about yourself on: September 09, 2014, 08:19:13 pm
I guess I have a dumb little confession to make, about something rather silly on the greater scale of things.

So I'm really bummed out by Joan Rivers dying. Like really, really bummed out. I have been saddened by the death of celebrities before, but never like this. Itís not that I am saddened because I was a huge fan-I was a fan, but I never went out of my way to watch her on TV. I never thought that she was any more interesting or funny than any other comedian, like Louis CK and so on. I donít quite know why I am so depressed. Maybe it was just another punch in the gut after a series of other events that has pushed me over the edge back into yet another slump. I just donít know why I was so emotionally invested in her sudden health deterioration and death, but here I am. I guess thatís kind of embarrassing. I guess not.

Edit: I figured it out. Joan Rivers always reminded me of my grandmother. My grandmother is also extremely funny (not brutal like Joan Rivers, but she has a good sense of humor) and we are extremely close. And if you ever heard Joan Rivers on TV or on the radio, you would know how much she cared for her daughter and grandson. I think that is what is drawing such an emotional reaction. I am watching the River's family experience what I fear most.

I didn't realize that middle-class white men were the authority on defining sexual assault against women.
Have you ever been raped? Sorry, but claiming that cyberbullying of rich white teenagers in the first world is in the same category as actual rape is pretty offensive. You should be ashamed for not only trying to defend the suggestion that it is, but implying that those criticizing that suggestion are somehow misogynists for claiming that rich first world teenagers getting perverted comments online is not the same as people being actually raped.
Thank you for saying this, as someone who has been the victim of such crimes, it helps to see responses like this. Smiley
I'm sorry you've been through something like this. I can't imagine going through such a horrible thing. You're clearly a great guy and will survive through such a thing Smiley.

Heel. I sometimes call it the "end piece" when I can't think of the term.

I don't have a word for it. But I put it right in the garbage, where it belongs.
Also this. But I keep it in the bag and hope somebody else eats it so I don't feel guilty about the waste of food.

Switch George Bush out for John McCain in 2000, but still have Iraq, and there you more or less have it. A center-right, internationalist administration.
