The unions in the US have way too much power,

Wow, thanks for demonstrating that you don't know a fucking thing about the topic.

Unions in the US have been almost entirely exterminated.

This is quite possibly the stupidest comment I have ever seen.

You're a delusional fucking moron.

Next time you see some one doing an up-skirt don't look away, look right at the person and make it clear you see him (or her) and do not approve.

I have a friend who used to do shit like that. Not like super duper creepy, but opportunistically.

We were all out at a bar one time and he's walking back to the table, sees this girl in a short skirt facing away from with at a "good" angle.

He starts lining up the shot and his girlfriend goes up to the girl and says, "Excuse me, there's some pervert over there trying to take a picture of your underwear".
The girl looks around sees him calls him a pervert and we all bust out laughing.

Don't fuck with Lisa. They've been married a long time now ;-)

Are you saying....wait back up a second...are you saying that's not the optimal approach to things?

Mind blown....I'm totally going to start showing up on your doorstep whenever I get high even though I didn't get it from you...just to run it by you...you'd totally like that, right?!?!

Unfortunately the money is with the corportists.The real energy though is with the tea party.

I find it bizarre that you don't understand that these are the same side.

The shrinking of the federal government the tea baggers keep pushing is only in those areas designed to reign in the corporatists.

The tea party is primarily funded by the corporatists for exactly this reason.

Are you honestly so out of touch that you don't grasp this?

Do you not believe in it, or are you, as you stated, just skeptical? That would make you an agnostic. It's true that agnostics don't have a belief system, as by definition they don't know what to believe. Atheists are another matter.

So completely wrong and people are modding this insightful?!?

A skeptic and an agnostic are not the same thing.
An agnostic is not defined anything like "they don't know what to believe".

An agnostic is one who thinks that it is not possible to know whether or not there is a god.
A gnostic thinks that it is possible to know whether or not there is a god.
Gnosticism speaks to what can be known, it doesn't say anything about belief.

So if you think it's impossible to know whether or not god exists, but choose to believe that he does, then you are an agnostic theist.
If you think that it is possible to know that (whether or not you actually do know) and choose not to believe, then you are a gnostic atheist.

The other two combinations are left as an exercise for the reader which I would suggest you actually do since you are this badly informed on the topic

  "As a defense mechanism, they attempt insults or ridicule, rather than engage in reasonable debate."

That's known as projection on your part.

I still think Reagan is worse.

He set us on this path, and a large percentage of the country still doesn't understand what a complete disaster he was. Hell, a lot of Repugs still think he was a great president.

I mean selling crack to American school kids to buy guns for Osama bin laden is only the tip of the iceberg.

it's just that a massive financial gain clouded their judgement

Look, no more offense intended than necessary, but are you three years old or have you been in a coma for the last 30+ years?!?

Let me guess, you think they're going to get punished for this.

They did it with the full knowledge that they would get away with it.

They knew that because they figured that there are enough ostensibly intelligent people such as yourself that are *that fucking stupid*.

And, you know what?

They were god damn motherfucking right.

I almost want to shoot you in the face more than I do them at this point.

They were right.

Please do not ever vote and if you feel the least twinge of depression, just off yourself.

People as fucking naive and as deeply stupid as you are why we're where we are.

I did 110 (according to the spedometer..maxed out) in an '87 CRX.

It's I-5, the name of the game on that road is get the fuck through to where you're going.

That's probably the number 1 road around to go all out. Nothing's there and it's flat as fuck.

If I had the time for scenery and curves, I'd be on the 101.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
