    I watched Fahrenheit 41.11 last night. Wow. Watching that movie did re-enforce some ideas that I've held for a long time. I shall list them.

    1. Politicians are scum
    2. Politicians are Republicans
    3. Politicians are Democrats
    Therefore, both parties are scum. Simple really.

    How dare anyone disagrees with obama or brings up the fact that he's black, you know if you do, you're a racist.

    That is such a red herring. Where do you think politicians come from? They aren't from outer space. They aren't manufactured in a factory. They are us. Do you think just because someone stays away from politics, they are a better person? It's illogical to say that politicians are scum.

    It's not only alive, but I've enjoyed mixing it up with my old buds here.

    I've been pretty complacent about past grievances with Presidents but Obama is just wayyyy too far to the left for America and when he says we can learn from Europe, that's when I write him off. Every country in the world has determined its destiny by configuring American culture and policy into their own goals, not the other way around.

    That's because our country was conceived differently than Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East through no fault of our own. We had to do what worked best to make us the Nation we are today and Obama is not pleased. Well, he can go run for office in France or any other leftist, elitists strongholds. We are a republic under a brilliantly devised Constitution and with all our faults and failings we still ain't broken.

    Anyone want to borrow my soap box?

    actually I wonder if this is a record thread considering it's only been up for 7 days and has 1700 views and 170 replies and it should earn extra worthiness because of the thread starter's comeback status !

    When you can prove to me that the majority of politicos vote for what their voters want, rather than what keeps them in the powerbase I'll concede the red herring. Otherwise, I shall stick by my assertion that careeer politicians are overwhelmingly scumballs.

    Hold on a second. I think that Paft has the right idea although it's a bit misdirected imo.

    If big business is a factor in the downfall of the US...then why are you faulting Obama for not improving the financial situation of these same big businesses? I'm simply asking you to look at it from a different perspective. By improving the financial situation, aren't we therefore enabling the corporatocracy? It's a bit of a catch 22. I feel that we need to find ways to enable small businesses to succeed.


    I am in no way defending him, but through his failures, he might actually be helping to mitigate the issue. We vote for candidates...not CEO's. Too many corporations have a stranglehold on our elected officials and the political process.

    What really pisses me off is when foreign corporations/entities help finance American political campaigns.

    This is also one of the most bipartisan pieces of legislation in action today. And it is aimed corrrectly at terrorists. It was conceived after the Oklahoma bombing and refined and buiilt upon until Bush finally signed it into action.

    Here's a site that may interest you.

    Terrorism isn't an existential threat to the United States. Period.

    Would you like to trade data on this?

    I'm not denying that. I'm saying that it's the nature of our species to be corrupted by power.
