  • If you don't like what a person asks should you report the question?

    Enough already. I have seen about 6 questions deleted from this forum in the past 5 min. One might have been over the top, but most of them were fine. Is this not a forum for OPEN debate?

    Should someone who is angry at a person who shoots an abortion doctor, not be allowed a question on this forum?

  • Obama supporters who also like McCain.?

    I'm an Obama supporter, because I agree with the Democratic platform more then the Republicans. I also am inspired by Obama. That being said, I've always liked McCain. I liked him as a person, and agreed with more of his positions then most of his party. I did like him more when he wasn't running for president , because he didn't have to tow the party line.

    I know that this YA is mostly for mudslinging and rhetoric, but I thought I'd put a positive question out there.

    I wanna hear if there are any other Dems like me, who like McCain.

    If we could go back and time (and add a hypothetical) and choose between John Kerry, and McCain would you consider bucking the party to vote for him?

  • Could Ron Paul have won?

    I'm a Democrat, but I LOVED Ron Paul! He was sandbagged by Fox, and left out of debates even though he WAY more votes then Gulianni. He had amazing grass roots support, like Obama does, and he energized youth. Granted he wouldn't have been loved by the christian right, but he would have picked up many of the moderate democrats. Could he have won against Obama in the fall?

    I'm not trying to live in the past, but I was watching some highlights on him on Cspan, and it reminded me how much I liked him.

  • Do you find it as therapeutic as I do...

    I find that all these one sided questions are so pointless, and in know way intended to get any answer other then the one that people want to hear. Such as "When Obama destroys the country, who will the Liberals cry to?"

    Or

    "Why vote for McCain who is so old and senile that he just destroy America"

    Etc.

    Now even though these questions make me shake my head, I do find it therapeutic to jump in the wring and put my own glib answers up, for laughs.

    Is this in anyway a productive debate, or are we all just letting off steam at pundits to relieve a little political tension? Sort of like a form of masturbatory politics. It is one-sided, but does that really even matter?

  • Is the oil bubble about to pop?

    I just read that oil prices have declined two days in a row, due to the Saudis saying that they will increase production. They haven't started it yet, but just them saying it, the price began to drop. I can only imagine that it will fall of much quicker when they actually begin larger production.

    I think this means that the bubble will finally burst because so much of the oil price is caused by heavy investment. People will begin to sell of the investments if they think the price is going to drop, which will mean that even more oil will become available, thus dropping the price further.

    Am I crazy for thinking this? I find the topic interesting, but my knowledge of economics is limited.

  • Why are McCain supporters so... I dunno... thick.?

    I've just read so many anti-obama / pro McCain posts that I feel like they are privy to some information that I don't have. Like the Lollypop times, or Leprechaun weekly.

    Some sort of magical paper that tells them McCain is suddenly this great candidate despite many of his short comings. Even better is the hardcore anti Obama people who think that electing a Black man who's main agendas are fixing health care, and pulling out of Iraq is the worst thing that could happen to America.

    I truly can't imagine anyone wanting to elect someone who in anyway whatsoever smacks of Bush, or what we've had over the last 8 years.

    As far as morals go, would you alter yours if you knew there was no God?

  • Obama racist?

    I'm not really sure I get the massive amount of hatred towards the guy from some folk. This whole, he's racist and anti-american, thing seems a bit much? Why are people saying this so much. It almost makes me feel like there is an army of people who work in the McCain camp writing in.

  • How can Hillary supports say they would vote McCain?

    I don't understand how anyone who supported Hillary would jump on the McCain wagon. Obama and Hillary were very similar in their views and policies. McCain is in many ways the polar opposite of Hillary. I understand not voting (although I always find that kind of lame), but to jump to a candidate that is so different makes me think that you didn't really like what Mrs. Clinton stood for in the first place.

  • What are some good fantasy books/series?

    I'm looking to tuck into a new series. Recently I've read and enjoyed Raymond Feist, Tad Williams (Green Angel Tower)

    George R.R Martian (He's good but I'm not interested in starting another 4000page unfinished series), The Dark Tower, etc.

    I like series that end. Not the never ending Terry Goodkind books. I'm not interested in stuff that is geared towards young readers, Harry Potter, Golden Compass, etc.

    Any recommendations would be awesome. I'm travelling a lot right now, and airports are less painful when I can nerd out for a while :)
