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

Is 2+2 the best forum to discuss politics on the internetz?? Do ACists believe that even other non 2+2 ACists are awfully ******ed?

I think 2p2 is probably higher on weed, but Digg is probably higher on the other stuff.

(Actually I've never really read Digg but was just playing along.)

He took off his suit jacket while working. This doesnt harm the original point or the point I made at all.

So your point was solely to indicate that the original pictures were not, in fact, taken in the oval office, and you were making no other implications?

Should we just make your undertitle "Captain Obvious" then?

Or is your point that it's okay to take your suit jacket off while working, but not do what, uh, whatever Obama did?

Well, I think I understand now what Vulture means, even if it was a little unclear to me at first. I think that the "original point" he was referring to was Andrew Card's claim that there is a "casual, laissez faire, short sleeves, no shirt and tie, no jacket, kind of locker room experience that seems to be taking place in this White House and the Oval Office."

I have no idea where Card got that idea or how he justifies it beyond the simple picture of Obama without a jacket and the claims from Obama's team that he won't require jackets in the Oval.

Nonetheless, the pictures of Bush originally posted do reflect a "casual" dress code, and Vulture was just pointing out that they were not taken in the Oval. The picture I posted was taken in the Oval, but does not necessarily reflect a "casual ... locker room" experience.

My objection is not to Vulture's point, but rather to Card's seemingly baseless and hypocritical charge.



Anyway, until he actually sees Obama dressed like this (or in the jogging outfit that Clinton wore in the Oval at least once), Card should probably just stfu:

I was listening to Obama talk about his new Economic Advisory Board, and I swear to God he said 'borg' instead of 'board' at least two times.

I'm suddenly afraid for this country.

I really dont care enough about this to argue it any further. Here is a summation as succinctly as I can make it. Card makes an accusation. Someone posts pictures of Bush outside the Oval Office wearing more casual clothes. I point out that those pictures were taken away from the White House. Someone posts a picture of Bush with his suit jacket off while working. I point out that this takes away nothing from my point. Note that I took Card literally about dress code around the White House. Maybe he was speaking more of the atmosphere. But suit jacket off != tshirts, etc. Surely even the most dense here can see this. And with that Im done with this sub-thread.

Yeah I wasn't wild about finally having to do that, but spammers end up using it more than anyone else to avoid the filter on their domains.

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

which one of you called into the mike church show just now? i'm listening to american right on xm (dont ask why, im bored), and a caller proposes that the logical alternative to government spending on infrastructure and improving the roads is to privatize them, properly incenticizing general upkeep.

now he's on a rant about drunk driving as a symptom, not a real problem. the people to blame are the ones keeping them on the road (or something), he blamed the government somehow but i was reading something online and not paying attention

Does anyone remember that guy that posted here all the time, and then he went to join some colony somewhere in the US I think...John...maybe? He always wrote long but interesting and informative posts.
