i hate sarah palin.
Say that to my family. My mom who had to work 4 jobs while going to college just so that we wouldn`t lose the only form of homeage we had when I was a kid, a townhouse that leaked and had mildew and made me sick multiple times as a child. Say that to me, who has to work to get even the smallest luxuries that every other teenager`s parents buy for them without a question and who asks for clothes for her 16th birthday because her parents can`t afford a car like most people get on thier 16th birthday. People like you DISGUST me. I really, really do wish I could wring your neck and then hang you, you despicable, evil little right-wing non-nice individual.
let the final battle begin...
"The problem is MOST of the political posts approved for posting here are right-winged posts. The posts that make it to the front page are not politically balanced, and both sides are not equally represented."
Ummm... Are you drating kidding me? I`m not even a little Republican, and I can see that IAB has far more left winged posts.
"If you are poor, then you didnt work hard enough."
Again, are you drating kidding me? I get what you`re saying, that people who drop out of school and smoke pot all day have no right to complain when in ten years they`re broke, but saying that poor people somehow deserve it is ignorant to an extreme degree.
My college Energy and the Environment professor spent a few days teaching us about clean coal. It does exist, and it is one of the possible alternatives scientists are looking into.
Okay, I guess my mom didn`t work hard enough at her two jobs when she was raising me by herself, and that`s why she had to steal baby food for me so I could eat. I guess I`m not working hard enough right now with my two jobs and full-time college, since I`m living in a small apartment eating Campbell`s and packaged rice. I guess those Ethiopians didn`t work hard enough since they have no food and can`t afford to import enough.
I would call you a poor excuse for a human being, but you`re not even legal yet.
1) Dont spend above your means. Actually, spend below it. I`ve noticed people that make 30k a year, 50k a year, 80k a year, and 200k a year; normally have the same car.
2) Get every possible dollar you can. Take risk. If your IRA grows at 5%, and stocks grow at 7%, don`t be afraid to invest more in stocks.
3) If you can, go to private school. Its better. I go to public school and what my teacher in AP English is teaching me is the same she taught her students in 6th grade at a 20k a year school.
Clean coal means they aren`t burning the coal, they are pressuring it to get the energy out of it. We have more coal than anyone else, we should use that method of energy.
"Viralshade, raising taxes wrong... because of a new law of physics? Because schools + hospitals pay for themselves?"
Tax cuts almost pay for themselves.
" I say tax the hell out of the rich."" obiously you have no idea what its like to be poor and not be able to find a job."
Coming from someone who was kicked out of their house and lived in a farm in a major city because your illegitimate dad kicked you out. The best way to get out of that is by not taxing the business, let it grow. More people get hired and thats how you move up.
I went from rags to... spoiled.
Are you kidding!? Maybe it`s just my wishful thinking, but I think IAB is a lot more left sided.
...I`m far too tired for this sh*t.
Come November we`ll find out who`s the president, and then a year from then we`ll see how the country is.
France gets 80% of there power from nuclear. They haven`t had any issues.
"primetimekin, I am glad to see you`re happy with the republicans. It will make it easier for me to know that you will gladly pay off the debt from this admininstrations follies in Iraq, I won`t have to pay this off, but you sure as hell will. Ha f#cking ha."
There are 3 economic thoughts in accordance to debt1. Keynesian view- debt is a burden and should be paid off2. Ricardian view- Debt just means you`re spending more than your receiving. In the future the process just needs to be reversed and it wont really matter.3. Debt is an inconsistent measure and cannot accurately describe the economy.And its not debt, its public debt. The EU standard is 60%, US is at 70%, its not that bad. Compared to Japan`s 180
That is a bullpoo statement right there. Usually the richest people hardly work at all. the people who work away all day with hard manual labor hardly get paid. Also, you could be poor becase your parents couldnt afford to put you through school, and many other reasons.
And Nazarene, Poy is right, farmers hardly make enough money to continue farming, let alone be generally wealthy. Have you ever seen farmers in an estate with all modern and tricked out furniture? I think not
And as for Iraq, it was a dumb idea for us to go in there in ther first place. That should have never happened. But we cant leave now because the second we do a horrible civil war would brake out and that would be our fault. what we need to do is put in some sort of goverment, then slowely ease our way out
Then why don`t you go work in a coal mine? Seriously- if you wish you had that money, tell me why you don`t go work in a coal mine.
I live in a rural, coal mining area. Coal miners make about $30+ per hour. Farmers own $200,000 combines, $100,000 tractors and a few hundred acres of land. I wish I had the money of the average coal miner or farmer around here.
Yeah because the best paid people on earth are the ones that worked the hardest, you know, farmers, miners, etc.
I mean if they slave away for say 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, and they`ll make as much as the national average. All they gotta do is work the remaining 6 hours, quit bathing, sleeping or seeing their families, and hey presto, they`ll be millionaires in a mere 17 years assuming they have no bills to pay, and assuming it`s all tax free.
I consider the above a solid mathematical proof of the statement "You are as dumb as mud".
Is that what your parents told you?? Have you ever worked a day in your life?? A poor kid in the ghetto with no education has little chance of getting a decent paying job.
that`s why no one asked you
this is about a page back, reading it made me laugh out loud, too bad the guy who said it will never realize how idiotic it sounded...oh well
thats where i live
You do realize Europe has a buttload of nuclear power plants.
Ok, so what exactly is safe about toxic waste that continues to pollute for hundreds of thousands of years? You do know at one point they were just launching that crap into the Atlantic Ocean and housing it in concrete boreholes that will never effectively contain the radiation materials for it`s given half-life?
Sorry - nuclear Power is reaaaally not safe. You`d be kidding yourself to think otherwise.
Anyway, watch this...
McCain on religion.
And then this...
Obama on religion.
And it will become painfully obvious just how bad for our country and anti-American John McCain really is. Despite what many of the more ignorant Americans would tell you, this is not the united headquarters for the international christian offensive. This is America, land of the free, FOR ALL.
Wrong again. She is not overly rich. Until now she makes over 100k. And Obama wants to raise taxes for all business big and small. Regardless of popular belief we are in a stagflation not a recession. The worst thing to do in a stagflation is increase taxes for anyone.
"Then why don`t you suggest a good link or post one right here?"
So wait. Everyones complaining that IAB has a bias (because McCain`s Brain was obviously a left-wing attack?), then someone states another bias and you say well... just suggest a link. How is that any different in this case? There`s a link, now we are commenting on it. BIAS BIAS.. yada yada yada
" How similar the parties are these days."Thats been the main complaint of both parties. Conservatives aren`t conservative enough, liberals aren`t liberal enough.
Nuclear power is actually safe. The only real incident has been chernobyl. I dont think a cartoon is good enough reason.
You`ve got to be kidding me. How many anti-Bush post must there be? We just had a bunch of links that made fun of Palin.
"so the US building nuclear powerplants is OK, but other countries building nuclear powerplants are labeled by the US as doing so only in order to enrich weapons grade materials?"
Most of them don`t comply with UN inspection.
"Aren`t there plenty of other places to get all worked up over politics? Do we really need it here?" It pays Fancy`s rent
And regarding what Starstreet said - Yah we get people like her here too, just the kinda folks who knock what someone else is doing when they`re doing no better.
Just because the nature of politics which is `get more votes than the other guy` they will say anything to get more people on their side. And since the majority of americans are much more moderate than the people that represent us in the government, the politicians are blending into the same party with similar policies (even though they claim their`s is better) and different names. Its basicly like watching a yo-mama-so-fat match, only these people are wearing suits and ties.
So they waste tons of money on two conventions, when in reality it would be better to just have them at the same place simultaneously...That would be much more entertaining, which is all americans care about now isn`t it?
Its obvious that he has been doing a lot in the Senate and her "present" remark saying that he doesn`t do anything is just ridiculous when you look at how many pieces of legislature he has been involved with.
B-tch, the CITY of Chicago has over four times the population of the STATE of Alaska and far more dense.
You wanna talk about people belittling YOU sweetheart when calling your state small and governing one isn`t justifying your qualifications to be VP? Then go and say unlike Obama you`ve had ACTUAL responsibilities? Give me a break.
No respectable scientist disagrees with evolution. Its as accepted in the scientific world as gravity. Only your creationists disagree. We have more evidence proving the existence of evolution than we have evidence to prove light exists.
No because there isnt any
Another problem is MOST of the post are anti-christian/anti-creationism... that`s definatly not blanced either.
Has there ever been ONE post here that shows the science behind creationism and whatnot?
evern thogh im not american, i know that whoever comes into power can have a big impact on nearly everyone on the planet, im hoping that person is obama
I`ve noticed that too. Whats wrong fancylad? You work for drating faux news now bro?
lol, no bitch, Obama`s gonna raise YOUR taxes, not ours. He`s gonna tax the rich harder, and the real people less.
also babies father looks scared to hell. run boy. run!
Then she claimed Obama was using change as a political move, coming from the woman who was chosen to be VP simply for being a woman.
... awkward silence...
And if you don`t like politics on IAB, don`t click on political links... No one`s forcing you.
And I agree with the "clean coal" statement, Dainty... I had to backtrack to make sure I heard her correctly.
I am so sick of all this crap, and it`s only just beginning. This year`s election is only a gimmic fight. Who has the better gimmic? The old white guy with the woman, or the black man. Who cares.
The problem is MOST of the political posts approved for posting here are right-winged posts. The posts that make it to the front page are not politically balanced, and both sides are not equally represented.
