  1. this is an argument that has gone on for thousands of years...and will keep going on. without a fundamental collapse of modern society no real change is possible. good news though...in 100 years or so (long AFTER Al Gore and a huge chunk of the human race is dead), the earth will start to look like mars and whatever manages to scrape a living out of that, just might have a chance to make some real progress
  2. what I STILL cannot figure out is why the right is so vehemently opposed to it. (the aca) the line that they are worried about the economy doesn't hold water...they have proven for years that they give a shit about the American economy. or rather that a Mexican style economy (where you are either super rich or dirt poor) is the way to go so that might be it, but i doubt that's the only reason why I would love to know for sure
  3. agreed medicare (2012) 571 billion http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/attachments/43060_Medicare.pdf medicaid (2011) 432 billion...(157 billion of that paid by states not fed) http://medicaid.gov/Medicaid-CHIP-Program-Information/By-Topics/Financing-and-Reimbursement/Downloads/medicaid-actuarial-report-2012.pdf (forward to page 26) military (2012) 553 billion http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/factsheet_department_defense the military budget is where the math become fuzzy and the sources get really political. but 553 bil is about right (give or take a few hundred billion for the stuff no one knows about)
  4. if god is responsible for everything.... then god made the internet too I thought you might like to see some of the other technical marvels god has been responsible for in the past The Rack: designed to dislocate every joint in its victim’s body The Head Crusher: Compresses the skull, shatters teeth, squeezes out the eyes ( a favorite of the Spanish inquisition) The Breast Ripper: Painfully tears and mutilates a woman’s breast .....and of course what holy instrument of god couldn't be without the Judas Cradle: The victim’s orifice is painfully stretched, flesh ripped
  5. the moral of this story is... never have sex with the chick who lives behind said dennys dumpster without first doubling up on the prophylactics. moons over myhammy....$3.99 sex with the dumpster girl...$2.99 2x glow in the dark condom from dennys bathroom...$1.50 living a life free of syphilis....priceless
  6. Food Companies Spend $10 Million to Keep Junk Food Covered By SNAP .....a lobbyist for the Texas Beverage Association, which desperately wanted all of its drinks available for sale to the fastest-growing market in America: the food-stamp market, which has quadrupled from $20 billion to $80 billion in the past 12 years. Companies such as Coca-Cola, Kraft and Mars have spent more than $10 million in the past several years lobbying Congress to keep their products available to those using food stamps. “No clear standards exist for defining foods as good or bad,” the lobbyist said..... http://news.yahoo.com/food-companies-spend-10-million-keep-junk-food-220551522.html
  7. peace? you speak of peace and yet threaten Mars with weapons of mass distraction?
  8. OBAMA RAN ON THAT VERY PROMISE...that was a major reason I voted for him the first time. the best solution I can see is to establish term limits in congress. it wont solve all the problems, but it also wont make it so easy for the corporate interests to buy a politician for life
  9. newly released video, created by stitching together images taken by a veteran Mars spacecraft, provides a richly detailed, three-dimensional view of the Red Planet. The European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft has orbited the Red Planet nearly 12,000 times, capturing images of Martian valleys, canyons and lava flows that have provided unprecedented views of planet's terrain. Researchers pieced together the individual images into a video that shows a eye-popping video of Mars in 3D. This has enabled the creation of the most comprehensive data set that has ever been acquired by a German instrument designed to study our solar system," Jaumann said. Nine light-sensitive detectors aboard Mars Express sweep across the surface of the planet, capturing images in sequence from nine different angles. This data is then processed into three-dimensional images by planetary researchers at the German Aerospace Center. "We can see the entire topography almost as well as if we were standing on Mars ourselves," Jaumann said.
  10. while simply cutting food stamp revenue is yet another brainless attempt by the right to get reelected...I do support reform. there is (what I would consider) rampant fraud in this system. and not just by the people spending them.
  11. wife?...LMAO! closest thing that fuck-stain will have to a wife comes in a box and needs to be inflated
  12. name one politician who doesn't lie? wtf do you live in candyland???
  13. its an imperfect solution. but faith in our fellow man is no longer enough to protect kids. the world is broken
  14. its not hard...just pretend your debating your grandmother, don't link other political forums, and don't try to sell us land in Antarctica....rule number 1 is mine and the other mods responsibility

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.


  • All lives matter.


  • Double post deleted.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.

    Being offended does not make one correct. 


  • By teacher

    I still own this cat box.

    "I'm coming to you for ask a quick favor."


  • By teacher

    "Anyone that places a color in front of their name is racist." That one is not mine, got it from another member. 


  • Where’s all the hot bitches? 


  • By teacher

    Kidding me? 


  • How do I get rid of this chatroom box?


  • How do I get rid of this chatroom box?


  • Get me out of Chatbox!


  • By jefftec

    The chatbox stays expanded and is a nuisance blocking screen images. What setting is there to control/collapse chatbox?


  • By kfools

    Just click the no holds barred to collapse it.

    diddle dee dee


  • By teacher

    Like Jesse Ventura said to all that would not take a chew in the movie "Predator." LF.org is a political debate forum. This chatbox just ups the opportunity to go at it. Ya'll have your political views, seems to me that ya'll should have thought these things out and be ready to battle. 


  • By teacher

    Is real time political debate a thing ya'll hide from? What do you morons do if you happen to run into some one with opposing political views on the street? 


  • By teacher

    I've never ran into anyone, in real life,  that said Obama lied. I run into folks that tell me Trump lies. I'm at work. I didn't bring it up. I don't reply, I'm representing a company. Not my place. 


  • By teacher

    Lookie there, all I have to do is get out and come back. Why is it that liberals, when they have a company man before them decide they that is the time they go off? Why would ya'll put a company man into that position? 


  • By teacher

    Chatbox is mine.
