DIE, you wrote: "We pay the taxes that provide services to people"

Unfortunately, alot of those services are entitlement programs for people who are perfectly capable of working, but choose not to, because they are content with the govt giving them money for nothing, then complain how "the man" anf govt are holding them down. Certain people in my family immediately come to mind on this one. I hate the fact that I work hard and pay MY taxes so that others can sit on their fat asses.

AP- I'm sorry you have family members like that, but the US is a large nation, and that's inevitable and unfortunate. However, if we're going to play the “I know someone game,” I know a substantial amount of disabled students who get part of their tuition paid plus other benefits for living expenses by the Government because work and school would be an impossible combination. You're suggesting that these students should be denied that assistance because you know of someone who abuses the system.

Edit: it should known that there is an assumption that these students will get jobs or continue on to graduate school after graduation.

The morale of this story: If you all had forwarded the damn email, all your wishes would have come true, but then you'd have nothing left to bitch about (Obama, taxes, politics...) and you'd be bored, so it's probably for the best. :-)

I was fine before this shite. I can see why IN warned us against this becoming a poltical thread. I won't say anymore on the current topic at hand like I said, but I would like to thank Natsquatch and DIE.

The problem lies in the fact that every fucking thing that's a simple issue to discuss is made into politics. I work with a political party for crying out loud and even I do not turn everything into some big political discussion with all of the "us versus them" bullshit that comes along with it. Then there's the fact of people including emotional reasoning. Admittedly, emotional reasoning is what most political parties use to appeal to the 99% of voters who have no valid reason to vote for their chosen candidate. Even Obama used it and it was made really obvious. Remember how he used "change" as a recurring theme for his series of flowery speeches throughout the election? I'd say it wasn't nearly as bad as the crap that his fellow nominees pulled. But let's say hypothetically that electing Obama was a huge mistake. Was it not because he used an extremely vague theme that appealed to the situation of America a year ago when things could not get worse? You be the judge of it.

2 things and I will leave this topic alone.

DIE: I certainly didn't mean disabled students. If you have a disability and can't work, then I understand. Not understanding would just be heartless. I'm and A-hole,but not a complets A-hole. I was simply reffering to the shitless layabouts who simply refuse to work. In other words, the moochers.

IN: A year ago, things could get worse, and they did. Quite simply the fault of 2 inept politicans.

I made my comments. Now what ARE we going to do about these forwards. If only there were a section in email programs for this junk. =P

IN: Sometimes I think you are contrary for the sake of being contrary. I know you are a smart girl so I would ask that you read your last post to me again and tell me if you still stand behind it.

Nov 23, 2009 1:24 PM ET #61 (permalink)

Blindgreed: There it goes again. Rather than saying something of value, you're making judgements about me. Whether those judgements are negative or positive is a matter of complete irrelevance. The fact that you brought the subject of "me" into it says it all. Cut it out. I am not some driving, important element of politics.

Liberalism at it's finest. First they become the victim, then they turn it around in your face and make you the asshole for pointing out fallacies and shortcomings.


*looks around nervously* Pssst. Is she buying it?

IN: I never said you were. I just have to wonder if you really think that someone's personal experiences are less credible than the media. By criticising the "value" of what I say, aren't you judging me? Hello pot... Meet kettle.

I don't even know what to have for breakfast.

But seriously Americans should be thankful that they have something protecting their rights, something that their nation is built on.
Commonwealth countries don't have anthing like that. We don't even have a Prez, our head of state is meant to be the British monarchy.
We all assume that because we are a democracy we can say whatever we want, but it isn't the case.
Australia doesn't even have an 18 plus rating for video games.

Our government can do whatever they want and we don't really have a say in the matter.

I don't recall saying that. I just think they're not anywhere worth near as much as a person's direct experience. By criticizing the value of what you say, at least in the instance where I applied that statement, I'm not judging you. I highly doubt that politics or debate in general is all there is to you. I never associated particular characteristics to you this entire time so I did not judge you.

Canada is not a "socialist" country, you are a Capitalist nation and your government is a Parliamentary Democracy like us.

When someone refers to a nation as being Socialist they mean the governemt directly runs everything. Canada has private companies and industry, which means it is not Socialist.

Bed time.

IN: Did so! :P

Nov 23, 2009 3:13 PM ET #68 (permalink)

No, I did not say that. Another person's experience is not your own and thus is not a personal experience to you.

Nov 23, 2009 3:34 PM ET #69 (permalink)

Is so! :P BTW... You already addmitted that you were horribly misinformed so lets just leave it at that shall we?

Not about what you're thinking of but okay lol

Yay! I win!!! So... I was at a party on Saturday and this tiny little crack head dude started shit with my friend Eric who is 6 foot 8 and weighing in at about 350lbs. We were all thinking this was going to get real ugly real fast and then Eric says "I will rip your arm off with my bear hands and smoke it like a cigarette". We all fell out laughing so fucking hard that none of us even knew where the little dude went.

well put AP1, i have never never never been for the muslim anti-american communist bastard - ever! we are so close to becoming an obamination of what this country stood for. he has not done one single thing to help american citizens and have been trying like hell to make it easier for illegal immigrants to settle here (withouht really becoming citizens) the stupidity of americans never stop amazing me. everyone here lives their lives day to day with their heads in sitcom reality t.v shows and do not ever get out of their box to see what real reality is. they take everythign at face value and believe it because it is what they want to hear. all anyone in the office talks about are there damn t.v shows. american idol bullshit and who donald trump is going to fire next. but you bring up obama and your either a racist (if you against) or you dont want to discuss it (if your for him but realize what a mistake he is and do not want to appear racist). well all you mother fuckers out there who voted for him because he was black (i have not found one person yet who voted for him for any other reason- honestly) well you are a racist. now everyone has to suffer because you guys wanted to be fucking "cool" and appear PC! not much offends me more than PC!

holy shot there is a lot to read here i though i read them all but there were a few more pages. socialism is the transitioning stage from capitalism to communism. this country is great because we are capitalists. socialism is utter bullshit. thats why canadians come here for medical whenever they can. i have a friend from canada that is a teacher here on a visa and IN i am sorry, until you drink from both sides of the river you should really be more open minded and try to experience what each has to offer. you will see the shortcomings of socialism. and socialism may work alright in canada it will not work in america. we are greedy arogant people and we like the option to work hard to get what we want if we chose to and those who prefer to be lazy well thats on them they do not deserve to have anyhting handed to them. obama was lost us more jobs. the fucking momo gives out stimulus packages to those that have money and breaks on buying houses. what good is a break on buying anythign if oyur proly going ot lose you job soon. the idiot should have been giving stimulus packages to companies to bring their labor back to the u.s. we need jobs. nothign else is going to help. you know obama may make us all equal in the end. we will all be jobless and poor if something does not happen to him soon.

"IN i am sorry, until you drink from both sides of the river you should really be more open minded and try to experience what each has to offer. you will see the shortcomings of socialism."

So you've lived in a socialist country have you?

I'm sick to fucking death of people also having this fear that Obama is a Muslim. His middle name is Hussein, that's as far as it goes. He's a Christian. And even if he was a Muslim, what would that matter anyway? Has he enforced Islamic law there? Has he banned alcohol? Did he tear down churches, schools and hospitals and replace them with mosques? No, didn't think so.

Read through your posts again.

But hey, what right have I got to say anything? I'm not American so I know fuckall right?
