Social Network Sites Fun

Facebook is great for the following:

1. Re-connect with old (sometimes eerily old) acquaintances and friends, friends of friends and acquaintances of friends from elementary school.

2. Accidentally get involved in highly irrational political debates

3. Take quizzes only to discover that you have virtually the same personality as Dave's brother-in-law.

"i said some of this like two years ago..."
Alexander Tyler - “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse form the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.” Could Obama be that dictator? Were on year 233, and the way people voted for B. Hussein Obama because he promised middle class tax cut's but instead increased spending to unheard levels just goes to show how dumb people really are. 55 Million of us saw Obama for what he was, all the info was out there on him, yet 65 Million couldnt recognize there own ass from a hole in the ground. Wake up america your freedoms are at risk, but poeple dont seem to care as long as the government takes care of them. "GIVE ME LIBERTY, OR GIVE ME DEATH" Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775 George Mason - “I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people.... To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” As it goes i dont blame all this on the Democrats, The GOP needs to pull there heads out of asses and stop trying to be like the Democrats.

Me: this could maybe be interesting if it wasn't riddled with misspellings and obnoxious blatant propaganda.

like a liberal... focus on the wrong part of the message... its only obnoxious b/c its not what you want to hear... blatant?... i believe it calls out republicans in the last line

a. I never claimed to be a liberal. b. anytime text is in capital letters screaming at me i find that obnoxious, regardless of the message and c.everyone needs to get their heads out of their asses. seriously. The election is over, we have a new president. He may not be perfect, he may not be the one you voted for, but the fact remains that he is the President of the United States and therefore, shouldn't we all stop this bickering and support him, or at least have some respect? I've heard way too much lately. Respect your fellow man, complain all you want, that's your freedom, but stop trying to place the blame on someone else. we're all in this together.

Friend #1:
a) you didnt say you werent either and your language thru-out your reply suggest your are b) then i guess dont read others notes and give unwarrented and unwanted judgement c) actually were not in this all together. the texas house just heard a bill that will start the actions to secede from the US and 8 other states are issuing similiar still has a ways yo go but some ppl like me... are saying enough is enough. i will not get behind an arrogant socialist pop icon that is nosediving the us into a situation that has proven over every democracy in the past to fail. respect is earned not just given. lets put it this way.. there was an election to see if it was a good idea to lock you in your apt and set it on fire. the election results said it was a good idea. now since you lost that election can you just get behind eveyone else and support that?

I admit I freely commented, as I thought that posting such items online for everyone to read gives me the right to do so. I dont give a damn if my opinion is unwanted, maybe yours is too. Luckily we live in society where we can all say what we want. And.. I started my original comment with " this could be interesting" which I still believe. I am .not saying I know what is right or better, I'm just saying I wish there were more like me who would try to listen to both sides equally and come to an understanding rather than just be against it to be against it. I realize you are an extreme case with the whole Texas thing. Which, i admit I have no comment on, as I am uneducated in that particular debate. As for the apartment on fire scenario, whats the alternative? Tortured violent death by aliens? Sometimes you have to check your premises.

And, besides, this argument wouldn't be nearly as fun nor worthwhile if someone didn't stand up and actually disagree once in a while.

Im glad my words of wisdom bring out the true liberals out there :)

Friend #2:
I love it when liberals try to explain politics, no he's isnt the one i voted for because when it came down to it i did my homework, unlike the people who voted for him.
What has he done so far, he's spent more money than every President before him. Hmmm seems to me he said during the election that he was going to stop wasteful spending :).

"this could maybe be interesting if it wasn't riddled with misspellings and obnoxious blatant propaganda."
if you didnt want to sound like a liberal that probaly wasnt the best way to start, but most liberal's dont understand whats really going on anyway, they just get in line like everybody else waiting for there cocaine....
If more people used common sense and quit just blowing there mouth off, this country wouldnt be in such bad shape.

I would like to here some proof that this is "obnoxious blatant propaganda".

I said more.. but... really, what more is there to say at this point.

*sigh* I should just stick to taking quizzes.

Indians 22 - Yankees 4

True story. I can only remember one time in tribe history that I might have been more proud, and that moment was in early August (or maybe it was September) of 2004 when the Indians beat the mighty billion dollar Yankees into the ground 22-0. (Enjoy the nostalgic photo)

Today's game was a very familiar ass whoopin' (22-4) which once again proves that a clubs ability to buy the best players in the entire league is not always going to prove that their club is the best. The tribe already embarrassed the Yankees in their new stadium home opener a couple of days ago, and this game is just icing on the cake. 14 runs in the second inning . . the most ever scored in a single inning ever against the Yankees. No one likes to see the Yankees win and growing up and spending the majority of my life thus far as an Ohioan, and even a Clevelander for a while, makes me feel all warm inside when a city like poor, dirty, post industrial Cleveland annihilates a big money, endless budget, corporate rich city like New York. Here are a few links to today's awesomeness here, here, and here.

<<<< here are your nuts New York.

I've noticed that when something goes awry in western Europe, they protest a lot more intensely than we do here in the states. The current G20 protests are just an example. There is no peaceful sour faced, scornful brushing-off of big bank executives in England. The crowds burn, break, spray paint, and really draw attention. I don't necessarily support it, but I will admit that it is effective, and sometimes necessary. If only our populace were as passionate, maybe issues could be addressed before they spiral into the disaster they have become. Unfortunately, our country is insanely apathetic.
