Divide and conquer the dumbed down masses with political gay marriage bickering so they don't notice that they're being anally raped 24/7 by the Federal Reserve Cartel.

Best Answer

oh absolutely! i mean...i RARELY meet someone in "real life" who is against the idea of gay marriage. some may not agree with it as a practice, but they wouldn't treat someone BADLY for being gay and married either. they are TRYING to divide us like boobs.

Best Answer

Or the erosion of your civil rights and right to a private life which is fast disappearing to keep you 'free'.

Best Answer

oh totally! i was talking to dragonhermit about that on another of my questions tonight (think it was the one about conspiracies)

Best Answer

It is interesting that so many Americans are incarcerated. I can't help but think it has something to do with the fact that so many prisons are privatised. It's big business and it's good business for regions that would otherwise be struggling. So build prisons and make unreasonable laws and increase sentences to ensure they all remain full to overflowing. Big money involved.

Best Answer

FINALLY we agree on something. witness my response to dragonhermit, above

Best Answer

You'd be surprised how much we probably agree upon. I just don't believe in fairytales about gods!

Best Answer

you are just so RUDE and CONFRONTATIONAL about your views. you will NEVER convince anyone that way.

Best Answer

I don't care about convincing people. I come on here purely to have a laugh. And I find there's little more amusing than conservative christians from the US. Without doubt some of the most ignorant, misinformed people I have ever come across. I love it! LOL

Best Answer

every supposed argument you posit is merely calling someone stupid. it proves NOTHING. and you have not come close at ALL to plumbing my depths. you have not even the cajones to message me privately to discuss these matters! your idea of a laugh is putting people down. if you find that funny, then i have far less use for you than i once thought. i used to enjoy your responses on other questions, but you have devolved entirely.

Best Answer

I can be more serious if I feel like it but frankly you should know as well as I that nothing we ever say on a site like this is really going to make people change their ingrained views. You're not ever likely to see the light of reason and become an atheist because of anything I say and I'm definitely not going to ever be stupid enough to believe in mythological beings like gods no matter what you say. I accept I'm not going to change peoples views. I just enjoy the debates and the trash talking. It's fun.

Best Answer

it's fun for you to say the same thing, day in and day out? at least change it up SLIGHTLY every night, man.

Or the rights of babies being aborted.

Best Answer

could NOT agree more.

Best Answer

That argument has been had throughout the world and in most countries, that don't have too much religious influence over the government, it has been decided that legalised abortion is far better than the alternative. It's not like there's a shortage of humans on this planet is there and we already have issues with feeding them all and there's already been massive damage to the planet in supporting the lifestyles of those of us in 1st world countries. Why would we want to implement policies that mean more people are born? Especially if the parents don't want them?

Best Answer

HIRAFU, fancy meeting YOU here, old friend:-/

Best Answer

Do you disagree? I've never understood opposition to abortion. Especially when we already have a situation in the world today where more than 10,000 children die each and every day due to completely avoidable circumstances like malnutrition and starvation. I never hear the right to life religious nutters ever making a big fuss over those children.

Best Answer

Overpopulation is a myth and a cruel excuse. This generation. Its not the population thats a problem; it's the government and the destructiveness of humanity. This generation places pleasure above life. It loves pleasure and hates life. Its humanity that needs to change. Not the population. Shortage of food my *** as fat America stuffs their face.

Best Answer

i agree with you josegh. it's hirafu's specious (and well-worn) argument that we should legalize murder in the name of controlling our population. as IF we can control the world with human hands anyway.

Not sure what the numbers are now, but when I was conducting research into pot and it's effects, both positive and negative on society, I was a bit shocked to learn that according to the 2009 FBI's crime statistics website, a whopping 53% of people in federal prisons were there for non-violent, marijuana related "possession" crimes.

Best Answer

omg..53 percent?! no WONDER they won't legalize it...they like to harp on the statistics of how much it costs to keep a prisoner in prison, but they wouldn't put so many people in prison if they werent somehow getting money out of it. it's a BUSINESS, just as CHURCHES are the business of Bible study (and im a Christian)

Best Answer

Yeah, I think it's something like $60,000 per prisoner, per year, but don't quote me on that. At least it's fully legal in Colorado now. ;)

Best Answer

It's around 43% of arrests are for possession of marijuana, 6.2% for sale. However Marijuana related crimes only make up for around 1/8th of all inmates incarcerated in the United States.

If you're writing about the U.S. education system, I agree that it is terrible. But what's really the worst part is that there are much better ways to teach than the way we teach presently.

Best Answer

The prisons we have that are overflowing stem largely from the prohibition on drugs this country has followed now for more than thirty years. Our education system is in a shambles. Not to mention an outdated military as it is currently structured. But with the lack of real Statesmen we have in DC right now, I do not think better is coming soon. If the Dems can turnout and retake the House perhaps we can see much fixed. In it's current state, Congress just does nothing. Over two million now locked up of which 82% were for non-violent offences with drugs.....bc
