Obviously I think we give everyone a pseudoname but make them all linked and/or recognizable. I call Ragnar Danneskjöld

Wow.... Krugman actually wrote several coherent and accurate paragraphs at the beginning, and then went off the rails back into stupidity. Someone should post this in the "Does Paul Krugman understand Austrian Economics" thread...

Sean Hannity forums

I think the main problem with finding a forum is that what we're looking for is a "Political Philosophy" section. The problem is, most of these places are such echo chambers that they don't have any need to defend their ideology.

ftw, they have a Latin American section, too bad Chile is not in it because the discussion is only from Mexico to Argentina

edit: My first mission is to change the Latin American section so that it says from Mexico to Chile.

Re: ***February Low Content Thread***

I already sent a PM to the mod of the Latin American forum, I saw the mod has an AS flag so decided to use that to my advantage. Here is the PM I wrote:

Hi, in the latin american forum it says discussion from Mexico to Argentina, however LatinAmerican ends in Chile and not Argentina , I know this is a nit PM but for some reason that small geographic mistake bothers me, do it for Allendes memory!

Guys,

It's time to ax the talk about forum invasion now. People have been banned for this, and it's never as fun as you think it'll be.

"The government agreed to impose Islamic law and suspend a military offensive across much of northwest Pakistan on Monday in concessions aimed at pacifying the Taliban insurgency spreading from the border region to the country's interior."

It's nice to see an "ally" being so helpful.

Re: ***February Low Content Thread***

Comedy Central censors suck. I am watching the Mike Judge movie "Idiocracy" on Comedy Central. I've seen the movie a few times, but this is the first time I've seen it on non-pay TV. Early in the movie, the Luke Wilson character awakens in the future outside a restaurant called "Butt****ers." Of course, Comedy Central blurs out the four offensive letters when they are first showed. 5 seconds later, Wilson looks again in astonishment that a restaurant is called "Butt****ers," but it is unblurred this time. Epic fail Comedy Central. Thank you.

Depending on who they made the deal with Im not sure that's a bad thing. You cant kill your way out of this thing and and the Pakistani army cant fight anyway. NATO are also gonna have to make a deal with some of the more "moderate" parts of the Taliban/Pashtuns/other crazy tribes afaik.

Re: ***February Low Content Thread***

lol, from my american government class

We were going over the questions for Wednesday's exam, question starts,

"In a democracy" GOD DAMMIT WE'RE A REPUBLIC YOU ****TARD, "do you think that unelected judges should have the right to limit the actions of elected officials" Ohh, well, no, in a democracy they should not be able to, I thought you were talking about the US for a second there, I apologize for my outburst, "Why should they be able to tell U.S. Presidents that they cannot hold enemy combatants without trial or tell...." Mother****er! I've been had!

Anyways, after a good 5 minutes I raise my hand and say "What if we, instead, acknowledge that the US is not a democracy, and that its a Republic?" Response was rather uninteresting, but apparently he agrees with my sentiment, so...I don't know why he wrote the question like that?!?

I'm considering saying **** it to the grades, and just writing a critique of the question. "This question is ******ed because blah blah blah blah".

Re: ***February Low Content Thread***

Between the truth and the grades I always go for the grades except when I decided to abandon economics, in a business oral exam they asked me what I would do in case x happened, my reply was that I would hire somebody who was more competent than me, the examiners loled.

I love fighting professors, however on live debates I have this special wit and irony( the sort of wit pvn has when replying to post) which allows me to make my points very quickly and in a sarcastic manner.

Fark.com is another place I read once in awhile but people there are 90% commie idiots so I'm trying to avoid it generally so I don't end up pulling my hair out.
