  1. Re: One thing that makes people in communist countries more fun and friendly

    If outbuying or outaffording others makes those certain people happy, then why not let them? If it didn't make them happy, they wouldn't do it. I contend they should be free to want or not as they...

    Re: Treasonous Berkley city council.

    I think the ideology behind resisting compulsory service is freedom. The military draft was unpopular when it was last in use and I imagine that compulsory service would be just as unpopular if it...

    Re: Treasonous Berkley city council.

    Let's be reasonable for a minute, here. Asking recruiters not to contact your children or asking them to recruit in a specific manner on campus is not the same as an elected city council declaring...
  4. Re: One thing that makes people in communist countries more fun and friendly

    You're right that more isn't always better, expecially when it comes to food. But, if you read Bradford's journal, you'll find that under the communist system they started with, they didn't hav...
  5. Re: One thing that makes people in communist countries more fun and friendly

    It's kind of funny to see how this thread went from communism to women. It all goes back to women, I guess.

    Anyhow, Big, I had high hopes for us after yesterday's freedom post. I thought we were...

    Re: Treasonous Berkley city council.

    BTW, Willie Brown is as extreme left and hung up on the race card as they come. He concentrates more on race than he does on facts. I wouldn't be too pleased that he backed up any of my positions. ...

    Re: Treasonous Berkley city council.

    Clone, let's make sure that we understand exactly what is going on before we start slinging such hate as "punishing the citizens of Berkeley." We both know that Ugly doesn't advocate punishing the...
  8. Politics and Sausage: It is better not to see either being made

    I don't know if I'm the only one noticing this or if anyone else has noticed, but things seem to be getting ugly on the democrat side of the campaign.

    In the AP article found here:

  9. Re: The government and phone companies are together to spy on you!

    Big, I am shocked!! You had a thought that sided with freedom! You and I agree! That's amazing.

    I agree that the government shouldn't be allowed to freely wiretap private phone lines without...
  10. Re: What would McCain be doing now if he were not from admiral's family?

    All wrong! There was a draft back then. He graduated from Navy and you have to be in the military if you graduate from Naval Academy. He went to Navy because his family got him there. He was a...
  11. Re: What would McCain be doing now if he were not from admiral's family?

    Is it possible he stayed because the American military believes in leaving no one behind? Even if it was a feeling of guilt, he was still imprisoned and tortured.

    People can draw on their life's...
  12. Re: You know why do I always feel like I am the bad guy on here

    You would probably explain that situation to them in the same fashion that you would have explained to them that their fathers' heads were cut off because their government didn't like them. But, now...
  13. Re: You know why do I always feel like I am the bad guy on here

    Besides, the fighting after Saddam's removal is not all that matters. You have said many times in the past that life is not black-and-white. Thus, you know that other circumstances matter. You...
  14. Re: You know why do I always feel like I am the bad guy on here

    How many Iraqis were left disfigured or dead by Saddam's genocide? How many Iraqis no longer have to worry about their own government killing them? THAT is freedom.

    The fighting did not cease...
  15. Re: Super-rich Russians descend on tony Colorado resorts

    What exactly is that supposed to mean? Fast Food cat, borscht, and cheap wine? Is that a racial/ethnic slur? I'm not sure I understand your point here.
  16. Re: Super-rich Russians descend on tony Colorado resorts

    The market is only a reflection of its members. If one wants to be successful, all he needs to do is follow the example those before him laid.
  17. Re: There is a good explanation as to why McCain is the leader for Republican nomination

    involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule or dominate others.

    Does this mean that those who vote for Obama because he's black are engaging in racism because they...
  18. Re: There is a good explanation as to why McCain is the leader for Republican nomination

    When others of us have said that same thing, we were called racists.
  19. Re: There is a good explanation as to why McCain is the leader for Republican nomination

    I don't want to turn this thread into something other than what its author intended, but I do have a question. Since you stated that we of the dominate [sic] white class all perpetuate racism in...
  20. Re: There is a good explanation as to why McCain is the leader for Republican nomination

    Entitlement programs have the potential to increase, as I suppose just about anything else does. But, debt isn't necessarily a problem (see debt thread). The problem with entitlements is that they...

    Re: McCain skips vote on stimulus package

    If McCain voted, it could have been 58-42, still not enough votes. As for the 60 votes needed, don't forget that the Dems held up a LOT of votes in years past, some of which funded our troops, who...
  22. Re: There is a good explanation as to why McCain is the leader for Republican nomination

    Matclone always brings up race and can not believe that there are people in this country who see beyond that. Most of us don't care about race, but he still does. In fact, he knows so much about...
  23. Re: There is a good explanation as to why McCain is the leader for Republican nomination

    If voters were interested in backing the guy with less money or the fewest ties to Wall Street, they would back Huckabee rather than McCain. But, I don't think McCain will be the bust that some are...
