Americans already don't understand the technology the rest of the (civilized) world is using/evolving/creating. Americans are too busy with real issues like how many days it took god to create Eve, or who had lunch with Jesus on the day of the Last Supper, or where Natalie Holloway (sp?) is hiding, ...

Yep! Brother Joequinn is right. The Rapture, rupture, rat trap, rectum, whatever the hell they call it, is nothing more than an 1840's "heavens gate" silly concoction of b.s. and boobery. Just like the bible, itself, only a pile of nonsense of a more recent vintage than the original, dreadful tome. ...

Seattlegal "...a desire for a smaller, weaker Federal government that is fiscally responsible and will not run over the rights of the citizens."

Seattlegal said: "On the political compass, I'm moderate, with libertarian leanings. I see government as a necessary evil. Perhaps I seem so far to the right to you because you are so far left." If you say you have libertarian leanings, that's about as far RIGHT as you can get. Under Lilbertarian r...

NeelyGirl said: "But Democrats need to "make" more Democrats. Does that make sense?" Neely, yes it sure does make sense. And is exactly what needs to be done. Showing people how their own self interest is better served by voting DEM than GOP is the only way to make more DEMs. RICH folks vote GOP BE...

Seattlegal, W.T.F? Excuse me, but from what I've read YOU live on the Right. Am I wrong? Anyway, the GOP uses the "center" word only as a diversionary and convenient trojan-horse-in-drag trick to disguise and make more palatable to the ignorant and unwashed their party's reflexive and ingraned pro-r...

I understand why we are not winning. WE HAVE TO BE REAL DEMOCRATS! And proud of it...not cringing centrist GOP-lite clones. AND THE RIGHT FEARS THAT DAY OF AWAKENING.

Well, Corvid, it's true! And if you look at LUXURY goods sales during the past two decades you see that as wages go down in real terms for most of America, spending on Lux-o items goes up-UP UP!

Corvid is right. And believe me, my family knows about Reichs and how they are made. And this is EXACTLY how it went Germany in '33 to '36.

How nice... Madam 'Condolences' Rice has been named Sec. of State.

Yeah, Liberalism and Socialism are soooo bad that's why every industrialized country (except this god fearin' doofussville we live in) has had a strong Social Democratic party for most of the past century. But AMERICA is always different. And slower. And how can anyone say America and Liberal in the...

My suggestion on new rules for the P&G threads is only this: " THOSE who can't stand the heat should get out of the kitchen" There are plenty of other areas on the FF for more lighthearted discussion. Turing P&G into a vapid "i'm ok, your o'k" thing-y flies in the face of what politics is all about....
