Natural Gas - 26%
Large Hydroelectric - 7%
Renewables* - 14%
Nuclear - 9%
Coal - 44%
*Renewable energy sources include biomass and waste, small hydroelectric, wind, solar, and geothermal. So, I guess I'd need an "all of the above" option. This is the first slashpoll where I've actually learned something interesting as a direct result!
...because most of them pay no taxes
This is the thing that I hear from (mostly) the Right which pisses me off the most. The argument boils down to: Poor/immigrants/liberals/etc. aren't participating in society and freeloading because they "don't pay taxes". This is pure bullshit.
What they really mean is, they don't have INCOME tax liability. Even if I didn't have any (which I do), I am still paying social security, medicare/caid, sales tax, gas tax, car registration, and (by virtue of being employed) payroll and corporate taxes. Just because people don't make enough to be taxed on income, people act like they don't pay taxes at all. Also, I am right in the middle of the Daily Show and Colbert's audience (26 and liberal) and I pay taxes; including income tax. Please find some other bullshit reason to completely ignore my opinion.
Yes. To quote Jon Stewart, to Bill O'Reilly, "You're the sanest voice on this entire network. And that's a little scary sometimes."
Mr. Stewart went on to say that's "like being the thinnest kid at fat camp." I love that line.
We just need to let them know that nobody ever said those 71 virgins were women.
Ah yes: a huge, eternal, post-mortal D&D session awaits the faithful jihadist.
Raimi also produces the Legend of the Seeker tv series. Make of THAT what you will!
1. 'Produces' (actually, co-produces) != has a strong hand in the art direction, storyline, acting, etc. thereof
2. I actually like this show. It's reminiscent of the old Hercules and Xena shows, though not quite as quirky. For a TV fantasy show it has a few things going for it: very accessible plot, attractive females, and respectable fight choreography to name a few.
