    Eh, republicans. At least war kills them. They bring it on themselves. :laugh:

    The Republican tax policies only benefit the rich. So what you are saying is exactly the opposite of the truth. :shadedshu

    My brother is an economist, and we have gone through the tax policies before. The tax rebates are a cheap ploy to try to gain support during a failing economy due to bad legislation from a republican congress and republican president for so many years. ;)

    Current Neocons are for big government and overspending until we reach a crazy deficit. George Bush did it, George W. Bush did it, and so did Reagan. They break their own records when it comes to incompetence.

    Are you for real.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pole_shift_theory#New_Age_Theories

    "Regardless of speed, the results of a shift occurring results in major climate changes for most of the earth's surface, as areas that were formerly equatorial become temperate, and areas that were temperate become either more equatorial or more arctic."

    Also read this to see exactly what it is.

    http://www.dailycommonsense.com/what-is-that-polar-shift-thing/

    "A pole reversal would have terrible impact on our planet. "

    It wouldn't be a pole reversal, but a pole shift. And its hypothetical. The poles have shifted in the past, and in 2012 the Earth will be perfectly aligned with the black hole at the center of our galaxy. Some say this could cause a pole shift (not a pole reversal), which, if rapid enough, would have drastic effects on our climate. However, like the article aphex posted said, pole shifts are usually very gradual and would not be rapid enough to catch us completely off gaurd.

    Interestingly, around this same time the sun will be in its hyper-active phase, when it is far more violent and it produces many solar storms. Our magnetic field usually deflects much of the radiation from the sun, but if it was disrupted the solar storms would have some severe effects on our everyday life.

    Also, there is a particularly nasty ray that is emmitted from black holes, the gamma ray. These pack so much wallop, that we can see evidence of them from trillions of light years away. If we were in path of one of these, well, thats the end of the planet Earth.

    Of course, all this doomsday stuff can get out of hand. However, there are a million different astronomical or planetary events that could totally and completely change our way of life or destroy us. All of them happen fairly regularly in space, but regularity in space is of course quite a significant amount of time to our feeble selves. But it still seems to me, our doom will most likely come from our own design, be it from carelessly squandering our resources or killing one another. But hey, what can ya do, right?

    You tard. Do you get all of your info from The Daily Show on comedy central??? The Bush tax cuts help every single person who makes money by raising the limit for your particular tax bracket.

    For example, let me show you how this helps the uber poor lazy asses who are a leech to societey.

    In 2002, to pay only have to pay a 10% income tax, you can make no more than $6,000.

    In 2008, to pay only have to pay a 10% income tax, you're now allowed to make up to $8,025 before jumping up to the next tax bracket of 15%.

    Thanks to the Bush tax cuts, all of the trailer trash coke addicts have over a $2000 (33%) margin before they have to jump up to the next bracket.

    For the highest tax bracket (35% income tax) there's only about a 15% margin, going from ~300k to the now ~350k.



    Here's some nice facts for you liberal whiners:
    >86% of all federal income taxes are paid by the top 25% of wage earners.
    >The top 50% of wage earners pay 97% of ALL income taxes.
    >the top 1% of wage earners pay 39% of ALL income taxes - which is up 2% from 2000 after george W took office.



    If you really believed algore's powerpoint presentation, watch this, then develop your own opinion.
    Man Made Global Warming is a theory. Belief in man made global warming requires faith, as does my religion, as does any theory that has not been proven.

    Thats because the top 1% own 38% of ALL the wealth.
    The top 10% own 71% of ALL the wealth.
    The bottom 40% own less than 1% of ALL the wealth.

    But those bottom 40% are all lazy trailer trash coke fiends right?:shadedshu

    He is to out of touch with reality to understand that teachers in public school sometimes fit around the poverty line. White trailer trash huh? Wow. :slap:


    Coke is the drug of choice for the upper 10% actually. That along with prescription drug abuse. Trailer trash would use Meth, Crack, heroin, inhalents and marijuana. If you wanna refer to trailer trash addicts, get the drug right at least. :laugh:

    Evolution is a theory. Gravity is a theory. Relativity is a theory. They do not ask for faith, they ask for facts. That was an interesting video, however did not provide enough in depth analysis for me, I will look into it more. Just b/c its a theory does not mean it takes blind faith.

    Yeah it takes a special kind of ignorance to make a statement like that, further evidence to me the end of man will be their fellow men.

    He is probably some snotty rich kid that thinks all people under the poverty line are lazy.

    The people with multiple jobs just to make ends meet are often found under the poverty line and they could be working 60+ hours a week. I am sure they would appreciate being called bottom feeders as they feed your family in a restaurant, or run the register at your local grocery store. Your a real man of the people Dangle.:shadedshu

    You would know:laugh:

    You guys aren't very analytical, are you? When I was referring to trailer trash, I was obviously speaking of those who make less than $8,025 per year in 2008. I found it particularly amusing how you fascists got offended. Show me an adult who makes <$8,025 and I'll show you a 1960 Winnebago. ;)

    BTW, we're getting off topic here so let me remind you:

    LOL, I am actually pretty straight edge, minus the gun I carry around. I don't drink, smoke, or do drug in any way. ;)

    My opinion has always been that if you want to do somehing to feel good, you either do a random act of kindness, or fuck your girlfriend. If you do it like a pro, it can be both at the same time. :pimp:

    I am analytical to a fault, and when someone makes a sweeping genralization about those who are less fortunate, I tend to make the analysis they are ignorant, and usually hypocritical. I think your post above strikes a far more fascist tone than I could possibly achieve.

    The reason for global warming is rich, powerful people, deciding to not let things evolve into being safe for the environment and less energy dependent.;)

    What happened to the electric car designs?:(

    So we started to talk about the rich and how they care little about the people on the bottom with the exception of a few.

    Warren Buffet is a smart man. Lets hope his ideas catch on. I hope he sticks around for a long time. :)

    Let me explain something I've learned about liberals. They get all of their knowledge and talking points from Hollywood flicks and Comedy Central.

    In 1970, there was an anti-nuclear power propaganda Hollywood flick. After that, everyone decided they were environmentalists and imposed coal-fired power plants.

    35 years later, those same lemmings see 'an inconvenient truth' and they try to ban coal power plants...

    in 2008 they complain about our foreign dependence on oil... yet they're the ones who prevent us from drilling our own oil off the coast of Florida, California, ANWR, and the continental shelf.

    Thanks a lot, dems.

    France is 80% nuclear, and they reprocess their waste. We can't even invest money in the tech because of you Hollywood sheeps.

    The production of electricity causes pollution too, at least with some meathods. Take nuclear power for instance. Yeah... critters just LOVE nuclear byproducts!

    They've actually got hydrogen cars in development now, run on pure hydrogen and emmit only water. Don't expect them to take over anytime soon though, there is way too much money in oil. When they do hit the market, they will likely be so expensive only the top 1% or so will be able to enjoy them. Even economics, is not without a sense of irony.

    What's unfortunate about living in the most free, prosperous state in the history of civilization? People in africa are living off of less than 1 dollar per day. You've got people here bitching because they're too lazy to ask for a raise at their fast food job because they know that if they do, they'll have to give up some of that free welfare check they're receiving.

    My dream life is to just sit in a room and play video games... I could do this if I wanted. I could quit my job, collect unemployment and welfare, get my social medicine, and have the gov buy me a house. Pay me extra for food. pay me extra for how many kids I can make. Give them free school and food. Shit i've got it made. World of Warcraft... here I come!!!

    Oh yea, and this one's for you Obama supporters... Let's not forget that increasing the Gas tax and the capital gains tax hurts the poor WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more than it hurts the rich.

    I'm not saying there are not those who are lazy and take advantage of a system to help those who are truly unfortunate. But not everyone who is unable to make $8000/ year is lazy.
