When I was in the third grade, I thought that I was Jewish
Because I could count, my nose was big, and I kept my bank account fullish
I told my mom, tears blurring my vision
He said, "Mort, you've loved God since before circumcision"

Obama said he would bring transperancy to government. Releasing the records could put the Birther debate to rest wether or not he's a natural born citizen

LOL, idiots. It would be hilarious if Orly Taitz got 2nd place next month in our US Senate race.

I hope she wins

I don't know, I think the beat-back that happened in the wake of the Inks-Deluge debacle (and the descent of Leip to address it) means that the Mods don't have the standing right now to pull off a ban of a big-name poster.  this place would absolutely erupt, at least for opebo.  jmf maybe a bit less so, but still an outcry.  doesn't mean it could not happen at a future point.

Red - the beautiful color of blood
Flowing like a stream
White - the color of bleaching bone
Lovely and obscene
Blue - the bruising color of flesh
Battered, ripped and torn
The colors of the flag of hate
Of violence and porn
What you see is what you get
You haven't see the bloody trail yet
I'm no patriot, just a hate-triot

Barry now tries to avoid ANY economy discussion so he had use everything for his campaign: from gay marriage and free condoms to Romney dog.
Also, there is one more reason for this.

Henry Kissinger is quite arguably the best Secretary of State America has ever had, certainly the best during the Cold War. Future Secretaries should try to mimic him.

I don't agree, certainly, but that qualifies as neither absurdity, ignorance, nor bad posting.

Thank you...
I could post on here how members of this board would root for Iran in a war against the USA but that's an opinion- as absurd as I may find it they have a right to hold it without being mocked

That has never been the main point of this thread - too often the point of this thread is to collectively ridicule a poster for having opinions that deserve to be seriously debated but that some posters are not ready to tolerate for some reason.

Amen.

But, as ZuWo said, that's not the idea of this thread. It's all too common for posts to be quoted here just because they don't adhere to the Democratic forum party line.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

If he wins, it will certainly be a major victory for those who wish to return to the good old days of the 1800's.

As long as I'm the patron saint of this thread:  Why genius political analyst Peter Brower believes Scott Walker is "wildly unpopular."

I think that people are scared to admit that they loathe him to a pollster now. There's nothing that he has done to win support... but many interests have created a climate of fear in Wisconsin. Whether that translates into voting is a different matter.

No more wrong than saying "Federal Republic of Germany" instead of "Bundesrepublik Deutschland."  In fact, it's probably better not to mix and match languages.

Not the same thing. Its Iran in modern English, Persia is no longer correct, its like saying Mesopotamia instead of Iraq.

Well yes I know that their government prefers "Iran" to "Persia" in English, but I was just thinking about what I think should be the general rule. Tongue

(Also not quite the same; Mesopotamia is the name of a region but Persia has always been used to denote a government).

General rule is that Iran is used in a political context but Persia is appropriate in a historical or cultural context (Islamic Republic of Iran vs Persian rugs or cats).
