Discussion in 'Other Hot Topics' started by Becky Stevens mom, Mar 25, 2010.
ROFL Oh yes then! I would like to be in the rhinoceros party as well!
Come join my party!
I vote for these guys!
Can we bring them to Washington DC and my state capital too?
(BTW, been a member of the forums for a few years, but not as an active participant for quite a while - for a wide variety of reasons. Disclosure: I also came back to the forums to read after Brenda's message about removing the HCR discussion from the parents' email list, and have just spent a GREAT deal of time reading the various "Hot Topics".)
Me too, though I'm a registered Dem. I generally think that my blood runs blue, BUT both parties are making my blood boil these days. I'd like to see the two party system disappear.
I'm quite a lefty liberal, but want government to be fiscally responsible. I think people who do bad things should go to jail for a VERY long time, but before it comes to that, improve schools, youth jobs programming and gang prevention.
I am pro-life in all forms. Against abortion and the death penalty. (lock em up and throw away the key, but let the Big Guy be the final judge)
I really don't know where that puts me.
I voted against my better judgement for Martha Coakely though I like Scott Brown (the congressman EVERY one is talking about) because I wanted health care to pass.
Thinking strongly of un-enrolling, but I vote in every election, even city council.
-raises hand- uh, I'm republican by family, but my dog is more for the world domination party. xD (that wasn't directed at any actual party) can't really say I'm either in my mind. The way I see it-you vote, you lose you can't complain, you vote, you win, can't brag and if you don't vote then you have no right to be against any new laws, because you didn't help pick a president. >.<
I'm for the death penalty
I'm against abortion (in fact, i think only married people should be allowed to buy protection, might cut down teen pregnancy)
I think schools, police and fire people are at the top of importantness list they are all important.
I will not hug a tree. But I will stand between a bulldozer and one >.>
I think almost everything can be settled with peace talks, not war.
AND I think Peta should be banned ;D
Did you just throw darts at the "issues" wheel?
Well, I, for one, would be quite interested to hear how only allowing married people to buy protection would cut down on teen pregnancy. Here I've been operating under the assumption that giving people access to birth control actually cuts down on unwanted pregnancies, but it turns out that it's the opposite!
I want to hear more about this too, but this is maybe not the time/place for this conversation..
It's a "party affiliation" thread. Game on. I, too, am waiting to be illuminated.
Oh, to be young again. I hope Grandma has health ed. built into the homeschooling curriculum at some point.
"I'm a Canadian, which is just like an American, but without a gun."
The Kids in the Hall
Dem dare's fightin' words round these parts.....
Oh, yeah? Whaddya gonna do? Throw some poutine across the border at us?
(Just so we're clear, I'd scream like a little girl and run in fear if you did. I find poutine positively terrifying!)
THIS is the funniest thing ever! I am crying from laughter here.
Higher education, LOL
Ok men, set up those poutine launchers! We'll teach those Americans a lesson they'll never forget..
Why Americans and Canadians don't fight:
Texan: Them thar's fightin' words. You and me is fixin' tuh haftu settle this raht hure.
Canadian: Ya wanna go, eh? Well you better get your stick on the ice.
Texan: Well. I dunno bout no sticks, and we only put ahce in Lone Star Beer.
Canadian: Beer, eh?
Texan: Yep, and it's thuh best yer ever gunna have. Speshully when it's so hot you could cook on egg on thuh dash of muh truck.
Canadian: Yah. Figure we could have some of that country wobbly pop?
Texan: Reckon we could..
Canadian: Sounds like a plan then, eh? Honey! Throw me down the stairs my shoes!
Texan: Ah cain't understand uh werd yer sayin'.
Canadian: Do you really cook eggs on your dashboard?
Don't even start judging me because of my age. Just don't.
anyways. My opinion is that it might make them think more, and they'd have to take more responsibility for their actions. Look, my opinion is just that, my opinion. I don't need to explain myself. If you said you liked to eat grass I wouldn't ask you to explain your self. I'd say, so?
Brensdad: thanks for the laugh xD
I don't think she was judging you because of your age. I think she was implying that your opinion is rather...naive and uninformed, which is certainly not the exclusive province of the young.
If you don't want your opinion examined or question, I'd suggest not putting it out there on the world wide web.
Delayed reaction? If you were 30, I'd say the same thing. It doesn't make sense.
No you wouldn't. You wouldn't say "I hope Grandma has health ed. built into the homeschooling curriculum at some point." and yes, it was delayed.
Anyways, lets move on to the actual topic now. :cwds:
