Topic Socialism an illusion or the real solution?
Posted 21 Nov 2012 11:16

Socialism is when some ones house catches fire, and the towns people help put it out, when a community gathers to raise a barn for a neighbor, when people band together to achieve a goal for the common good. The Amish are socialists in a sense.

Topic Second Amendment
Posted 19 Nov 2012 16:39

I interpret that to mean; that people, regular everyday people, have the right to own and possess guns so that if a necessary militia is required they, the people, will be armed to do so. If guns were only available to government soldiers, then regular people would have no means of defending themselves as free beings of the state.

This is the problem with many's understanding of the amendments meaning, notice the bold highlights on half of the amendment, not the whole sentence.

This topic should garner some interesting debate. I maintain that as the second amendment states ''A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed'' in modern language that should require that only those serving in the National Guard be allowed to lawfully own weapons.

I admire Switzerland as a country that has minded it's own affairs throughout modern history and has prospered peacefully while it's neighbor's on it's borders waged numerous conflicts. There is a lesson to be learned there.

It may not be possible for the US to return to isolationism due to commitments we have already made, but it would be much better to be an equal partner in The U.N. than it's major source of military might and have all nations or a majority agree on actions and contribute equally.

Ideally a global armed force to resolve worldwide conflicts would be a worth while goal.

Desert storm was done by common agreement and is a somewhat flawed model of how this could work in the global 21st century. By contrast the second Iraq war and the Vietnam conflict will hopefully serve as a lesson of how not to wage war.

A vastly reduced military and focus on our own economic, energy and infrastructure problems maybe a pipe dream, but is a needed dream.

I give when I'm able, I had one girl who put nails into her nose and told my fortune, she was so entertaining and smart i gave her $20!

Giving to a person is better than to a charity as only a fraction of what you donate goes to those in need, the rest goes to pay the CEO of the charity.

Giving time and donations to a church that feeds and shelters the homeless is possibly the most effective means of giving in my opinion.

We would not have won the war of independence without France's timely aid and yet now we treat them with contempt, or at least we did during the Bush years.

General Washington made a much better president than he did a general, his retreat skills were good, but his battle skills were lacking according to honest historians.

Texas and Florida couldn't possibly expect that the US would leave any of the Federal resources behind, would they? There are 15 military bases in Texas and 21 in Florida - not to mention NASA facilities, FBI, Postal system, wild fire protection, and other federal services.. If they couldn't come up with some kind of trade treaty, I can't imagine them being allowed access to the US power grid, communications systems, all kinds of things they depend on sharing with the US now. Texas and Florida would both become third-world countries if they seceded from the US.

Texas gets back more than $1.06 from every federal tax dollar spent, Florida's rate is just over $1.03 so it is fair to say that both states get more from the federal government than they contribute. I say let them go, just let me get the Hell out of FLA first! They should be careful what they wish for, they might just get it - then they'd be fucked.

That is exactly my point!! Pull out all the federal resources in any givin state and see how they fare on their own.

I didn't mean to single out the south, almost all the states had petitions from it's citizens.

Unemployment is up and stocks are down due to the same kind of people that want to secede having no confidence or patriotism if that is true.

It is just sour grapes. But I have to admit that I be too butt-hurt if Texas seceded from the Union.

LOL It would be an interesting country if Texas or Florida was independent, with no trade agreements or support from the U.S.. Total chaos with a taste of the wild wild west and shoot outs a common practice. About the first time a hurricane struck they'd miss FEMA and the red cross and would beg to be re-admitted.

The Confederacy quickly found itself with worse laws and restriction of freedoms, not to mention economic stagnation and while it's nice to think about less taxation, etc. etc. I would think they'd soon find nation building is a long process and never perfect, but the in the U.S. just having the right to petition the government speaks volumes for the sort of country we enjoy living in.

The under god part doesn't recognize that this country was founded on the principal of separation of church and state and sends a confusing and conflicting message to young children.

The pledge should be optional for a freedom loving country, not required like a Nazi state would do.

The White House has received secession proposals from numerous petitions on it's website after President Obama's re-election. Citizens from Louisiana, Texas, Alabama, N.Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, Georgia , Ohio, Michigan and other states have gathered hundreds of thousands of signatures asking for, to quote one petition ''Peacefully grant the republic of Ohio to withdraw from the United States of America and create it's own new government''. Another stated ''It would be a crime against the people of any state to hold them, against their will, in a union that they desire to leave''.

Signers are not required to list their last names on these petitions, but must create an account,provide a first and last name, Zip code and an email address. It was also noted that signers didn't have to reside in the state seeking separation, so that citizens from Michigan could support Ohio's departure from the union and N. Carolina could support S. Carolina's ouster.

Another petition was also launched to deport everyone who signs a petition to secede on the same White House website.

I personally think this kind of action does a serious injustice to the memory of the many Americans who gave their lives so that the union was preserved in the Civil War.

Anyone care to comment?

What Constitutional rights do you feel are threatened?

Progress in four years? How about we aren't in a depression, the stock market has doubled, we are out of Iraq, set to be out of Afganistan in 2014, housing is growing-not falling, we aren't losing 800,000 jobs a month-we have added jobs 43 straight months, we are on pace to be the leading oil producer by 2016, small business tax cuts 18 times, my taxes cut by $2300-maybe more for you, stopped the banks from taking a cut out of student loans and using that money to increase student loan availability.

Three proven reasons to vote for Obama?
1. Saved over a million jobs saving the auto industry...56% of the money has been repaid with interest and the rest is coming in by 2016. Romney would not have put the money in upfront and that was the key in saving the dealers, parts makers, and the jobs.
2. Quadafi is gone...Romney gives Obama credit and agrees that was good move and policy (3rd debate.)
3. Bin Laden is dead. Gutsy call, if failed, it would have been like Carter's failed rescue in Iran. Romney said, "not worth moving heaven and earth to get one man.". Mitt also said we should get pakistan's permission. Of course now, Mitt agrees he did it just right.

Is Obama perfect, of course not, who is? I agree with you about Fast & Furious...some idiot needs firing. Benghazi? SOME questions have been answered, but still more need to be cleared.

Now my turn Gr8guy2, give me three positions/policies/principals that Mr. Romney has been consistent on besides the love of his family and his faith in the Mormon Church over the last seven years he has been running for President.

Agree or disagree with Obama...he says what he means and does what he says. Can that be said of your candidate?

I could not have said it better Jessicax and add those pesky wars that cost us so much in lives and taxpayer money are ended in one case and winding down in another . That in itself is reason enough to vote for President Obama and I doubt anyone's true patriotism gr8guy2, that cant refer to our country's president with respect, regardless of who is in office. It is the office that deserves respect, not the holder of the office.

It has been posted on the forums that the US went from a lender to a borrower nation during the Reagan years.

The economy is global now and if the dollar is weak it is reflected in world markets and all nations feel the effects so China props up our dollar and loans to us to it's own advantage.

" I do not hate women. I actually admire them a whole lot. They run the risk of being raped and kidnapped everyday , but they still take the chance of going out into the world , making it a better place. Without women, the human race would be non existent. Women make the world go around. Women are not as nasty or sick or ill minded as some men. Seriously, some dudes are sick in their head, goin' round raping and shit.."

WTF is that all about? Who thinks like that? angry7

Is it just me or is this a terribly disturbing statement? He sounds like a future rapist or a present one.Nutbag

As to the OP there is not enough of a portrait of your friend to give clear advice, maybe he needs time off from relationships to decide what sort of relationship he wants.
Relationships are never easy, they take time and a give and take attitude to work.
But giving up is asking for a lonely existence.
