    I just joined a few minutes ago, and thought that this would make the perfect introductory message, as it reflects my attitude to modern day politics perfectly....relevant as it was the day that it was written.

    I'm hopin' the younger-people who (finally) stayed organized, long-enough, to get Obama elected, need to be reminded that their participation doesn't end, after the Election!

    The Yuppies (of my generation) are perfect-examples of what happens, when political-participation is seen as one-more-trend (the Yuppies dutifully-pursued)....after-which the Yuppies chased Disco, Greed Is Good and Family Values.....conveniently forgetting (what they claimed were) their Politics. :rolleyes:

    How funny. A guy requests truth, and the one guy on the entire forum that is consistently wrong the most often, replies to it.

    Re: The Truth Is...

    Truth is what you want people to believe.
    Truth is what sells.
    Truth is that which is not legally false.

    I don't know anymore who said that, but from a cultural perspective it's spot-on.

    Consider them overthrown. As of tomorrow, there are new winds blowing.

    "Bitter Truth"

    Libs want freedom but not responsibility.

    Freedom to smoke, but not responsibilty to pay health bills
    Freedom to eat at MCd's and not pay the medical bills for heart surgery..

    Just to name a few.

    Having the freedom to choose should not infringe on someone elses's right. My hard earned income to pay for those mistakes is infringing on my liberty.

    You seem to be painting with a pretty wide brush, lots of Conservatives smoke and the tobacco industry is owned by Conservatives. So you support gay marriage then, because gays are asking for the same rights and responsibilities under law that are given and expected from straights?

    So many say that they want the truth.

    Do they really want truth? I say, no, no no way!

    Here is the truth!

    Bingo!!!!!

    ***

    "Our cities have turned into jungles
    And corruption is stranglin' the land
    The police force is watching the people
    And the people just can't understand
    We don't know how to mind our own business
    'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
    Now we are fighting a war over there
    No matter who's the winner
    We can't pay the cost.

    What I am saying is that having the freedom to choose means you aslo accept the responsibility. don't expect a check because you didn't know the coffee was hot.

    Gays have the same right to marry someone of the opposite sex as anyone else.

    There seems to be this strange assumption on the part of liberals, that if the CEO of a cigarette company votes or donates to republicans, he must be conservative. Did that thought ever occur to you that perhaps they just don't trust democrats who routinely tax and restrict their business?

    Not saying none of them are conservatives. Obviously it's very possible some are. But most I would bet are simply supporting republicans simply on the basis of their CEO duty to do what's best to promote their business. Obviously a political party the likes to regulate, control, hinder and tax your industry, isn't the best choice to support for elected office.

    As if anyone didn't know the coffee would be hot, or didn't see the word written in red around the cup saying "HOT" wasn't enough of a clue. Not to mention the brilliance of placing the cup marked "HOT" with coffee that's always served cold, between your legs while driving.

    They shouldn't have fined McDonalds, they should have fined the customer for being so blatantly stupid.
