    Obama - Health Reform & everything else

    Re: Obama - The other side True. But, too little government intervention is as good as anarchy. Checks and balances are needed. I co-manage a horse business; it started off making very little profit, but now turns in a decent amount of money. But of course, our expenses have gone up as well...

    Obama - Health Reform & everything else

    Re: Obama - The other side I have no problem with wealthy people who've worked hard, and earned every dollar. I do have a problem with people like our auto industry CEOs, who come to D.C. on their private jets asking for money. These men are getting more in severance pay than many people make...

    Obama - Health Reform & everything else

    Re: Obama - The other side FDR is accredited with pulling us out of the Depression by spending way more money than the country actually had. Same principle here. Are you suggesting that tax cuts for corporate CEOs are the way to go? :rolleyes: This is what I'll never understand about...

    Should Marijuana & Other Drugs be Legal or Illegal

    Re: Marihuana: Legal/Illegal Actually, I did read back, at least to the last page. :p I think it's quite possible cannabis has health benefits, but you'll never hear the anti-drug people admit that. It's like trying to get the USDA to stop telling us how evil fat is (sorry, this coming from a...

    Auto Industry Bailout

    What do you guys think? Discuss, and feel free to ignore the rant from my blog below. :D Okay, so all the car company CEOs come to Congress in their gas-guzzling, million-dollar private jets, with a tin cup in their hand. Naturally, they were turned away. So, they tried again. From an article...

    Should Marijuana & Other Drugs be Legal or Illegal

    Re: Marihuana: Legal/Illegal Hi, guys. Exactly. I'm not an expert in the field, but it's pretty obvious that legalizing marijuana would go far in helping the economy. But it should be legal. Let's start a petition.:D I definitely support legalizing marijuana. I've never taken drugs and never...

    Apocalyptica's cool, but I can't stand that song they did with Three Days Grace--so whiney. The more I listen to metal, the more it grows on me.

    Should there have been an American Civil War?

    I don't think it matters whether the Civil War should have happened--it did, and it was pretty much inevitable. However, alternative history ("what if...?") does matter, because it helps us to understand the world. If the Confederates had won, the North and South would still have a hostile...

    American Election '08

    Not particularly fair, but if you see someone who looks African-American, you're going to classify them as black. On the other hand, someone might be half-Mexican, but they have brown hair and white skin...are you going to call them "hispanic"? Probably not. I get the impression it's not the...

    American Election '08

    The whole "Obama's a muslim/socialist" thing is ridiculous; what's scary is the number of intelligent people I know who believe that crap. Although his healthcare plan makes me a bit nervous, any coverage is better than none at all...and I don't get why tax cuts are such a big issue. The cuts...

    American Election '08

    Re: Let's talk election '08 It's amazing how many more people voted this time around...although it does make sense, since Kerry and Bush were equally bleak options. I think McCain really lost a lot of support because of the last debate, among other things. Obama looked appealing that night...

    trash T.V.

    I don't watch t.v.... I have YouTube. :D But yeah, there's a lot of junk out there. I don't get how people can watch it all. A lot of shows are so boring as well as sick; how do people have the attention span?
