Way to blow the cover, Jobe. We could've had fun with Sigz!

Regarding management: Huh, that's the deal here. Our president is the image on how the country should be managed term by term. Why the hell do we need a Constitution if it's gonna be amended when he wants it? Blind Faith. What a shame.

Any boss who'd make such silly assumptions based on nothing but party association is:
A:  So incompetent that the business would fail anyway.
B:  Such a stunning asshole that the Obama supporters would be happy to leave.
C.  Get shot 7 times by the gun toting Republican asshats that didn't get laid off as soon as A happens and they realize B.

wat

 :lol That was my first thought before I even read this.

Anyways, I'm leaving this board for a while, I'll still read it, but I've gotten rather sick of arguing the same two things over an over again, just with different examples.

What are you talking about? You haven't discussed anything, Sigz.

All you say is: "No." "Lol". "Now wait a minute, man". The only thing we know is that you are socialist, but as far as defending your position with clear arguments, positions, support by other authors you pretty much aren't saying anything.

You just proved his point perfectly.

The very fact that you call me socialist shows that either a) you see political beliefs as a total binary choice, or b) just pigeonhole your opponents into one group so you can throw the same canned arguments at them. I'm guessing it's a combination of the two, but either way it's exactly this kind of stuff that's made me lose interest in posting here.

Well, well, well. We have a rebel within our selves, everybody. He doesn't likes to be labelled. AND he doesn't likes to say anything about himself because we, the plebs, have no possible insight to his brilliant mind of abstraction and superiority. He cannot waste another second with us, the vague minds that cannot discuss something worth for his brains.

Never say never, my friend.

Dude, if you seriously think I'm stopping from posting out of some sense of intellectual superiority, then I don't what else there is to say. I'm simply sick of every thread (besides Andy's) coming down to either "the government is good/bad" or "the bible is right/wrong". Those two things have become the Kevin Moore of P/R.

Then post something different! Start a thread about philosophy or whatever. I'm sure many will be glad to jump aboard.

Sure there is, especially from his perspective, which is also changing. I can't imagine someone being the same after 33 years; I can't imagine someone being the same after 1 year.

So libertarians, one of your arguments against things like the FDA is the amount of money it wastes, "it's a huge waste of taxpayer money!" That's a common rallying cry against every sort of governmental administration. But the FDA's annual budget is ~$3 billion, and that's after Obama raised it. That's $10 a person in this country, little less, a year. I honestly doubt people are going to notice $10 less a year, or hell $20 less a year, for the FDA when it can accomplish something important if done properly.

For someone who claims to not like George Carlin, you sure seem to reference his material a lot.

I grew to appreciate Carlin as I became older, though like Emindead will never appreciate his views on religion.
