Generic_name I should simply be Generic_name until a Generic_name II exists.

So WJB would just be King William for now.

You guys can tell that to King William I, but he might have your head in the process.

Tell that to King Billy's decomposing corpse. Also, since I assume you're planning for this to continue into the present, how are you going to deal with Ruth II's child? I can't find any sources on her online.

Boo! Hiss!

Also, all hail King Nicholas, the First of his Name!


Return to the North and I shall give you your own lordship!

When I left the icy lands of the North to seek adventure in yon Southron pastures, I was forbidden to return for six moons. I fully intend to keep the vow I made to then-Holder-Of-The-Position-Known-As-Governor-At-The-Time Scott that my return would be thence. However, there are many untamed beasts in the lands of Memphis, and I have taken it upon myself, along with my brothers-in-arms in the Labor Party, to tame those beasts. Once I have completed the quest that I have undertaken (which will take however long Dave wishes it so take), I shall return home and reassume my ranks among the Grand Council. If I fail in the quest, I shall l return when the sixth moon of my limit has ended.

Chicken? Really? Gay chicken is already a thing, so that ruins Googling it for EVERYONE FOREVER.

Stupid gays.

Oh, olds can't be otters? I wasn't aware that age factored into these gay-animal-stereotype designations. Interesting!

Wait, there are multiple gay-animal-stereotype things?

Sexual education should not be taught in kindergarten.

Would that also exclude teaching small children how recognise (risk of) sexual abuse?

No I don't really consider that sexual education. I was more referring to sex positions, nerve endings, secretions, forms of protection, cross dressing, and homosexuality. It's always good to teach of abuse.

So what ages do you think should learn sex ed - after all, you only said kindergartners in your first post? I don't think kindergartners should be learning about sex positions and condoms and things, but I think older kids should be learning them. Also, why shouldn't kindergartners be taught about "cross dressing and homosexuality"? They exist and they're totally harmless.

Destroying a government might be the most democratic thing there is, really. At least in some opinions. That are legal. And free.

So, cut the shit, and let's vote this bill down.

Please explain to me how this was democratic at all, and do not leave out the explanation of locking out citizens from the ability to change it. I know it was voted on by a council taking advantage of people being lazy and inactive, but explain to me where the Democracy is in preventing the people to choose for themselves if they want to re-establish their regional government. True democracy would have been an open debate where everyone knew exactly what they were in for, and then voted for or against the constitution.

So what are your thoughts on zombie voters?

Harding and our best POTUS, William Henry Harrison.  The only truly terrible one was McKinley.

Sometimes I think to myself "Hey, wormyguy's not insane". And then I read this.

How would it have gone differently?

No the law is still the law and the jury has to follow the law.

You are a naive little person, you know that?
1694  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: TX police confiscate tampons, allow guns in gallery ahead of abortion vote on: July 14, 2013, 10:04:28 pm
If everyone has a gun, then others are less likely to start trouble.

If everyone has an abortion, we can bring a halt to juvenile delinquency within eighteen years.

But we need people on our planet to continue our species. We could do an even better job at keeping our species alive if those with criminal intentions were constantly faced with the possibility of their victims being armed.

And we could do an even better job at keeping our species alive if those with criminal intentions didn't have guns.

I'm too lazy to do that multi-quote thing/don't know how to do it without copy-pasting the [/quote] blocks, so my responses are in bold.

The democratic process is best in dealing with those who engage in Pacific Rimjob type of tactics.

So why can't we have a fair and honest dialog about the views of humanity's beginnings in the relms of science. I don't think the darwinist can accurately explain the skeletons of giants being found all over the world.

Are you referring to the Cardiff Giant? Because that was revealed as a hoax.

Also the Smithsonian has been actively suppressing these kinds of archeological finds beacuse of the ramifications they hold firmly against the darwinist and by such in favor of at least intelligent design if not right out Biblical Creation. If you want information regarding the giants look up Steve Quayle, L.A. Marzulli,  Doug Hamp, or Rob Skiba. Kids need to know both sides to fairly and with their own free will choose what to believe about the origin of life.

Should kids "know both sides fairly" about geocentrism? Should they be taught that the sun goes around the earth?

To respond to Alfred's question the idea or theory of a one party state is anathema to all who believe in represenative democracy.

While the movement has certainly been annoying, causing economic collapse and posting in different languages are not the characteristics of a terrorist organization. Calling a party we don't like a terrorist organization is undemocratic.

The fact that they brought down an entire region warrants the label. They created terror as part of furthering their views.

You have no damn clue what terrorism is, do you? Terrorism is the use of violence to achieve political change. The NM-AM has not, AFAIK, used violence in their handling of government.

Violence has more than one strict definition and is not limited to  physical force. A destructive action also falls under most definitions.

If I abolish a government agency, say, the Department of Education, is that violence? I destroyed that government agency, did I not?

Logic fail

Jbrase didn't define a "destructive act". I'm simply asking where he draws the line.

Next question: What is your opinion of recent legislation referring to banning parties that display characteristics of terrorism according to the bill?

24 hrs

Oppose, strongly. The people may cause such parties to fail, through the democratic process. To ban them from participating in the electoral process is a travesty of democracy.

And if they ban in he democratic process?

Let me answer your question with a question: would you have a problem with President Chris Christie, together with a Republican House and Senate, banning the Democratic Party, and the Supreme Court upholding the ban as constitutional? Would you have any problem with that?

Define "unplayable". After all, this is a game, and we make the rules. Who's to say what's unplayable?
Every playable position in the region was abolished and they wrote the law in a way that it was impossible for the citizens to get them back. Not exactly democratic.

You don't know what democracy is, do you? The Council passed that constitution, and the Council was elected by the people. That's democracy.

Seriously, Napoleon, Yankee, DemPGH, you should ignore them. They like trolling, we must defeat them, but giving them any importance, it's playing their game.

We're all just playing a game, though, aren't we?
