  • Commented on The Election
    Hello again, friends. Its certainly been an exciting 4 years, hasn't it. Boy a lot has changed. I find myself now waiting in baited breath hoping to see President Obama re-elected....
  • Posted John Edwards: Felon? to onegoodmove Forum
    I won't touch the personal issues, like cheating on a cancer-stricken wife, but I'd like to think we all agree that our elected leaders shouldn't be felons. http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/43163300/ns/politics-more_politics/ So there you go- send this post back in time, to the days when I was mocked as our resident "Paultard", and the wise, aged among you told me why this guy should be my President. In other news- the value of gold has literally doubled in this time. So just imagine- had you listened to me way back when, not only would we have elected an awesome President, you'd all have doubled your money. Que sera. / told ya so...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Monday
    What a shame that some men are so weak, They can’t handle so much as a peek Of a Hillary pic. Seems they fear that their dick Can’t withstand her alluring physique. What fun! Let me try: This little stink...
  • Commented on Obama and the 2012 Presidential Run
    I have seen the future! In 2012 Obama will run, and get reelected (barely) after the progressive base is convinced to vote despite a lackluster, right-of-center first term by threats of a Bachman Presidency. During Obama's second term it will...
  • Commented on A Sarah Palin / Michele Bachmann Rock Opera
    Musically painful, and ideologically bankrupt. This panders to the lowest-common-denominator of American progressives, secure in the knowledge that the great blogosphere circle-jerk will provide the 15 minutes of fame the creator is so desperate to see....
  • Commented on Friday Links
    "Storm" was outstanding. Thanks for sharing it....
  • Commented on A Driverless Car
    Due to traffic density, the demand for rail down here in the Southeast USA is minimal. However, this self-driving car would be a smash hit (especially if we assume it would be legal to ride home smashed and high)....
  • Commented on Founding Fathers - Bill Maher New Rules
    Ahh Bill Maher, the psuedo-science pushing self-described "libertarian" who is anything but. Amazing how much I just want to punch that smug face of yours while waiting for forced laughter for an unfunny punchline. One of my major beefs with...
  • Commented on Some Red Meat for the Forum!
    the most prominent rabbis of our day have forbidden smoking, but, being jews, we pay no attention. :) I learn something every day. Come to think of it, every Jew I know smokes either a pipe, cigars or weed...
  • Commented on Republican's Best Friend
    I dream of a world in which the national race comes down to Ralph Nader v. Ron Paul. First of all, no matter who won, I would feel confident the winner was sincere in their desire to improve America. Even...
  • Commented on Where do we disagree? re: TSA
    JoAnn- help me here. As far as I know, you are a thoughtful, loving, warm and compassionate woman. I find it simply horrific that kids are being forced through this screening. Look at this sweet little girl for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJNY_PTULO4...
  • Commented on Where do we disagree? re: TSA
    My heart sings as I see rational ideas begin to appear at the table. My feeling is it's all for show anyway. I agree 100%. So why the hell would you photograph a 6-year-old girl via the "porno-scanners"? Just for...
  • Commented on Where do we disagree? re: TSA
    Nudity never really bothered me Hell, I LOVE walking around nude- but we're not talking about a personal preference here, we're talking about a forced security screening. As for the constitutional stuff... At play is not only "search and...
  • Commented on Where do we disagree? re: TSA
    and the constitutional thing-unreasonable search- doesn't bug you? I've figured this out- they've been treated like cattle for so long, they've started to moo. I've only seen a few pictures of the scans they are using, but I have...
  • Commented on Where do we disagree? re: TSA
    Just re-read this- I lost myself with my math errors in the 4th paragraph. I demand Norm upholds my Constitutional right to an edit button! Not in the Constitution, you say? Pfft. Typical liberals....
  • Posted Where do we disagree? re: TSA to onegoodmove Forum
    In the year 2001, you were more than three times likely to be killed by a drunk driver than a terrorist. Assuming the world is still exactly as safe (or unsafe) as it was on 9/11/2001, you are 4 times more likely to die from the flu, and 3 times more likely to be murdered. http://reason.com/archives/2006/08/11/dont-be-terrorized According to this article from 2006, your odds of being killed by a terrorist is 1 in 1300, assuming we have one 9/11-sized attack every year for the rest of your life. For the sake of argument, let us assume the new TSA measures will reduce the threat of terrorism by 50% (an extremely optimistic assumption) and our lifetime risk of terrorism is reduced from 1 in 1300 to 1 in 2600 (still assuming a 9/11-sized attack each and every year of your remaining life). I implore all RATIONAL people to keep this in...
  • Commented on Thanksgiving Traveling (And TSA Jokes)
    people aren't focusing as much on what's really the issue, the effectiveness of these machines Actually, you seem to be missing what's really at issue, which is an inalienable Constitutional right to avoid unreasonable searches. But I can illustrate...
  • Commented on Craziest Glenn Beck (FOX) clip?
    Thanks! Man, you couldn't script stuff funnier than this....
  • Commented on Zaphod's Bailout Update
    Did the economy shrink by 60% from Oct. '06 to Oct. '08 because the Dow did? Like I said above, somewhere in the middle is the truth. How much of the economic growth from 2001-2006 was propped-up by the...
  • Commented on Zaphod's Bailout Update
    As of Nov 24, 2008: 1 Euro = $1.29 (USD) 1oz. gold = $816.19 (USD) DJIA (DOW) = 8,406.59 As of Nov 15, 2010: 1 Euro = $1.36 (USD) (+ 5.43%) 1oz gold = $1360 (USD) (+66%!!) DJIA (DOW) =...
  • Commented on ayn rand on love
    One of the reasons I like Ayn Rand, and argue she is highly underrated, is because she pisses off everybody. The super-religious hate atheists. Liberals hate her politics, e.g. free market/anarcho-capitalism Social conservatives, even those who aren't hung up on...
  • Posted Craziest Glenn Beck (FOX) clip? to onegoodmove Forum
    I'm trying to compile some clips of FOX News and Glenn Beck specifically, but there is so much on YouTube I'm having a hard time knowing where exactly to begin. Can anyone recommend a YouTube clip that highlights FOX's special brand of insanity better than most?...

    One of the most passionate Dawkins speeches I've ever seen. This really got me fired up!...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee
    Strikes me as an obvious strawman. It is an obvious strawman. And, just for the hell of it, let us assume for a moment that there is absolutely NO health advantage to organics whatsoever (compared to factory farming). So...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee
    Ok, I have to comment on this here: Whatever farming methods are the most efficient and sustainable, producing the highest quality and cost-effective food – that’s what I support. The author wants his cake, and intends to eat it too....
  • Commented on About the 2nd Amendment
    Is Rebel a multiple personality? I can't understand which side of this issue you are arguing in favor of. Erick is totally correct; Rebel is totally wrong, re: "regulated". In the 18th century an army marched with "full regalia", as...
  • Commented on Destroyer of Worlds
    Can we turn the clock back? No. Can we indefinitely prevent nations such as Iran from pursuing nuclear technology? No. Can we find a cleaner, more economical source of energy given present technology? No. I vote for more nuclear power...
