    I just wonder... anyone care to venture a guess?

    That would be laboring under the delusion that southbeach initially had sufficient brain tissue to be able to remove pieces and still be able to jab at a drool proof keyboard with his nose.

    I don't know .. how do you know if it was that or congenital? lobotomies don't always leave visible scars.

    I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies, so long as we keep all the death row inmates alive.

    I also voted Democrat, because Freedom of Speech is fine, so long as nobody's offended by it.

    I agree with meohmy icon_biggrin.gif

    What's wrong with having an opinion? Just b/c it's different than your and it doesn't go with the "the majority" of people here (which in and of itself is stupid) doesn't mean that it's bad or anything. This question is beyond ridiculous

    I'm not even a Republican and I think this is a stupid post.

    I see the future...many pointless attacks on each other and fights over a thread...

    Sorry Tiger Tim,

    Some of us just think for ourselves. It was fun at one time to be young and stupid and think like everyone else in our group and never ask questions. But then you hit 30, and start thinking outside your group of friends. You actually ask questions. You ask hard questions about both parties. I know it is tough. It is not popular. But some of us do it. I am glad I do.

    Both sides have their extremes. That's why I choose to take the self righteous and elitist middle ground on certain issues. Thinking for oneself is knowing who you are

    Most people are wrong.


    That's about as simple as I can get about political affiliation... it's not so much what you call yourself but how you go about an issue... the debate and dialectic.

    My other opinion is that people agree with each other fundamentally, yet ego allows for division and group egoism allows for things like racism, classism and elitism. Slowly we fall into the "us versus them" behaviour we would normally attribute to animals.

    No wonder we get culled as such. It's HOW we view each other.

    Hey, am all for guys like Tiger Tim. Youth and being young and fighting the establishment and having a point of view that is us vs. them, rich vs. poor, haves against the have nots, Republicans vs. Democrats. I totally get that. When I was young I felt the same way. Rich vs. poor.

    But that is not the real world. Life really is about the guys who produce vs. the guys who do not. Talk all you want but guys that produce move ahead, guys that do not bitch and moan about how bad the world is. The world is about producers. In any field. Produce, and you will be compensated. Talk about producing, anything, and the world will say thanks, but stop talking and show us something.

    No one hires a talker, at least not for long. Produce results, income for a company, and all the other BS makes no difference.

    This is kind of a hijack, but I nominate Webster as RJ's official spokes model. Wisdom and beauty all in one sinewy package. ;-) I'd follow him if only RJ had a twitter thingy.

    Hmm well you just committed the same simplification but alright.

    We still have the terms of who can produce, whether that has always been equal and whether or not there are proper apparatuses to let those who do work hard enough to be given the rights to produce.

    It sounds like the American Dream, come to think of it.

    Yeah, right. Tell that to all those who bust their asses, have an education, and try with all their hearts to produce and contribute and STILL get the short end of the stick. You sound like you live in an insulated world where such simplistic attitudes always win in the end. Life isn't full of happy endings, otherwise we wouldn't have such rampant homelessness, depression, and financial woes.

    Start seeing the world for the way it really is, not the way they tell you it is in the fairy tale that so many people think the world is built upon.

    why must the focus of all of these forums result in the blatant worship of surface-value traits and digress from what the point of the discussion truly aimed to be in the first place?


    although i don't really agree with the topic as it does offend varying political views, still, can we RJers simply stay on topic?

    Uhhh, I actuallly live in the real world. I own a company where I only get paid when I produce results. I am commission based. I live, or die, by getting a client that believes in what I do, and more than that, believes in me. I am not salaried, have not been for 6 years. If my client makes money, I make money. If they do not, I make nothing. I am not a guy living on a salary. I am not paid by anyone unless I produce results. Kinda hard for salaried guys to understand. But I am a guy that put all my belief in me.

    I've met more ridiculously stupid liberal hippy Democratic too far left crazy people that I've wondered if a Neurosurgeon performed a frontal, parietal, and temporal lobe lobotomy on them. Meanwhile I've met enough gay Republicans who are simply in it for the money (tax benefits). In fact I've met enough idiot Democrats who spew blanket statements about Republicans that it's pushed me closer to the center. Although to be honest there's plenty of idiots on both sides of the fence, so I'm on the fence.

    Stop stereotyping gay Republicans. That's like pointing the finger at gay blacks because black people voted Yes on Prop 8. Not all Republicans are bad, and certainly not gay Republicans.

    The more gay people become Republicans, the more the general opinion of the party dilutes. So stop hating on them. Log Republicans are doing more of a favor by bringing the party more towards the center than crazy doosh bad liberals yelling at them (which obviously doesn't help anything).

    Triggerman for the win.

    It's interesting, all these people who seem to be so set on this idea that the world is ultimately unfair. They're the sort of people who look at their prior work history and see that at job x, the manager hated them and prevented them from succeeding. Then at job y, well they just weren't challenged enough to do well because society didn't give them enough of a chance given their stellar performance at job x. And job z? Well, they just don't enjoy the line of work they're in, but now they're trapped - trapped! - by society, and bills, and it's all so unfair.

    Grow up. Learn something new at a community college and do that instead. Try opening your own business. Taking new steps doesn't guarantee success - you can't make people pay you to do what you love if that's useless to society at large. Your 'trying with all your heart' comment is hilarious though - as if all life were some giant Montessori school. Considering that at no point in history have people had as many options in terms of what to do for a living, it shows a remarkable lack of drive and energy for a person to not be able to retool and find something they reasonably enjoy. We even subsidize people's ability to take classes, and provide unemployment and welfare to boot.

    How exactly do you explain the success of so many first generation immigrant families without giving a nod to the fact that many Americans are entitled whiners, and many immigrants are hardworking doers? And on top of it all, generally the laziest of Americans then have the gall to complain about the immigrants that prop our society up. They're taking *our* jobs.

    Just astounding. When, if ever, do you take responsibility for your own actions and circumstances? We have Senators who were welfare mothers, and investment bankers whose parents escaped horrific conditions. What's your excuse?

    Sorry- Zee

    But the world is the world. If your education does not seemed to be valued, maybe you should talk to your college advisor, not me. The world apparantly does not value you education. Maybe it should, maybe it should not, but that is your problem. It is not mine and it certainly is not the worlds. You chose a certain path in the world. How the rest of the world views that is not my concern. I am not sure why you even address me.

    I've worked for both parties behind the scenes and let me tell you, the contempt most politicians have for John Q. Public is not to be believed. They laugh at us at behind our backs, they really do. It's all a big con game. Tell the people what they want to hear. Do whatever it takes to get elected.
    Every once in a while, their true sentiments are made public. One of Obama's men just took a hit for referring to the mentally challenged as "fucking retards". Another politician had something "insightful" to say about Obama's potential for success as owing to the fact that he is a "light-skinned" black.
    The list goes on and on. Unfortunately, most of their derogatory comments will never make the press.

    I also forgot to address the OP, namely by pointing out that though both parties are obnoxious and beyond redemption, it's entertaining to see him demonize the other tribe in such hilariously infantile terms. How many Democrats are the result of being dropped on their heads as children, or are the result of cousins breeding? Equally pointless, inflammatory questions that only the most facile mind would bother to post as topics for discussion.

    I'm embarassed for you, since you don't have the good sense to be as much for yourself.
