    Attention Liberals: PLEASE do not elect Hillary Clinton as President!

    Tell me, did you vote for Bush because of his rugged and manly Broke-Back-Mountain sort of features?

    Plan to Use Nukes on Iran is Operational

    Yes, that flightly liberal hype-tank the New Yorker and the most obviously slanted and overly biased Washington Post, I am glad that someone here still cites that cool-headed, even-keeled, middle-of-the-road bastion of clear eyed reporting, Fox News! It is rediculous to believe that there are...

    Plan to Use Nukes on Iran is Operational

    And I think it would be obviouse that, if we were to nuke Tehran, and, Mecca, it would be considered by Muslims to be a direct attack upon themselves and their faith. I think it wise that we NOT provoke more anger then necessary from one of the largest religions in the world.

    Thank you Bush ...

    By torturing ANYONE we show the terrorists that they are right to hate us, that they are justified in killing our children and flying planes into our buildings. By taking part in acts such as torture we create the very circumstances in which terrorism comes to exist.

    Should there be an American bias to the news?

    Our media is an excellent tool for keeping our government in check. I think bias in the media is overated. The media is such an extensive and diverse group of people with such a diverse number of differing biases that any educated observer can usualy gleen an accurate picture of events. I think...

    Socialism and Me!

    Actualy if you look at the stats I think it's something like 60% of the Chinese population makes less then a dollar a day. China is doing very well when you're looking at it from the perspective of the poeple living in the blooming urban areas. However the majority of China is rural communities...

    The "Theory" of Evolution vs. "Creationism"

    Your right. As I have said before I am not very knowledgeable about a lot of the finer details of scientific theories and the scientific process, but at least I try to avoid pretending I know things I don't. Again you are correct. I understand that it is imperative that students learn the...

    The "Theory" of Evolution vs. "Creationism"

    I completely agree with you when you say that it is important that students get a firm grounding in biology. It just strikes me as strange that the students are not encouraged to reach out and try to make sense of some of what they are learning themselves. I don't believe you can cram knowledge...

    The "Theory" of Evolution vs. "Creationism"

    I have in no way demeaned science. I am a complete follower of scientific thought, even if my own scientific grounding is admitedly lacking. I the only thing I was critizising was the teaching of science in lower level education. (K-12) I find no fault at all with the scientific community, their...

    Socialism and Me!

    I think the defenition of fascism is: A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism. It seems to me that...

    Socialism and Me!

    I don't see any need to get into it, Though I was wondering if you could tell me why you don't consider it socialist. If we assume that it is socialist, just for now, then I think that this overview of chinas economy gives a pretty clear picture of the pros and cons of a succesfull socialist...

    Socialism and Me!

    Dosn't socialism go hand in hand with communism? Like China. (Which I hear is really a socialist republic) It seems that socialism works very well in places with very small populations. But as the population grows so does the govornment, and (as I think was stated in an earlier post) this leads...
