  3. Wow why would they celebrate that? Hmm I wonder?

  4. lol why wouldn't we celebrate? huh?! apparently they celebrate st patricks day, and independence day, its only right that we celebrate the communist revolution too, right??

    lets have the kids in school celebrate the commie revolution too

    Yes.. lets make everyone honor what is apparently 60+ years of pointless war, since now we seem to be celebrating about it all.. its only fitting that America celebrate their own entry into the communist regime..

    I like how we don't celebrate any other communist countries and their revolutions, in fact we act against them, however, honor thy Chinese communism!

    hell, lets all take a day off.. or wait.. how does that work? what is a communist celebration consist of anyway? government approved music and food? I CANT WAIT!

    the past 2 weeks of life have been really eye opening as far as changes go though

  5. interesting

  6. If Fox News told you guys you should switch to wearing panties, I shudder to think of the visual consequences.

  7. yeah! fox news.. *sigh* even though it happens to be the first link you see in google when you type in 'empire state building red communism', which is probably why the link was posted, due to feasibility, not for some love for fox news.. instead, lets just read another reporters coverage of the same exact real life issue by visiting a different web site.. it really makes a big difference on the issue at hand..

    I don't know what Obama has to do with this but if your concerns about your "freedom" have to do with taking anabolics, you are totally misguided. And one thing I must admit about Fixed News, they have gotten a lot of you so called "young conservatives" with your underwear in a knot over trivial bull**** while the Hannity's, Becks and Limbaugh's make a ton of money. Rock on

    Obviously his biggest concerns about his personal freedom are not whether or not he can take anabolics, its just another example of how Liberals in general want to control a large amount of what our "freedoms" really are. If they think its not good or not right then no one should be able to do it. Its not the trivial bs thats the problem its the direction this type of thought leads a country.

    So you think what is going on is fine? It's fine for you to say it's fixed news, but all the liberal media isn't fixed? Where is the Gopher hole you call home?

    What makes the so called mainstream media liberal to you and see if you can answer this without quoting verbatim one of your conservative heroes. Also please enlighten my about these freedoms you feel you're losing. btw, I spent some time in a foxhole in the 70's, never a gopher hole though.

    You guys are saying it didn't really happen because it's on Fox News?

    I mean if Bill O'Reilly said it, then chances are it didn't happen that way but you can only slant an actual report that's about a one time event so much.

  14. It's a privately owned building and if someone pays them to light up lights to celebrate something then that's their RIGHT as an AMERICAN. Those of you who think this should be stopped are arguing against the very freedom you're alluding to us loosing.... You and everyone else have a right to not utilize that building or other assets of that business if it upsets you.

    That's Freedom.

  15. All im saying is that anyone who does so is a commie lover, and I dont like commie lovers.

    Or we could go suck Obamas knob like many of the other news media outlets tell you to.





    In terms of the OP's post, Id have to agree with Jay on this one....... "thats the way it is."

  17. Commie lover or lover of Capitalism... You decide!

    Jayhawk your M. Thatcher quote explains it all. As for Fox..., have you guys seen MSNBC lately????? I think they are owned by the DNC.

  19. None of the news media outlets or their "non main stream" counterparts are unbiased in their coverage. If you watch one without at least watching the other to compare 'facts' and distinguish what's opinion, then you're really hurting yourself if you wish to stay informed. What is so damn irritating is how each side constantly flips attack and defense styles and only plug in current buzzwords and whatever their platform standard is.

    Sometimes I start getting hope when I hear what appears to be a rationalized and well debated argument/news piece and then it gets stomped on by whatever twist is added to sway the viewer. Almost feels as if the reporters get some kind of high from being able to change the masses perception of reality.

    I am more on the so called liberal side but I would tend to agree with your assessment of MSNBC.

  23. That's what I do! Always keep em guessing... Worked for years with my therapist :P

  24. Just noticed the "loosing" instead of "losing" I hate when people do that and go and do it...

    I find regular people arguing about political stuff about 50x more annoying. They use obscure "facts" with nothing to back them up but you can't argue them unless you're in a position to look them up. If you make an analogy, they go into a detailed explanation about how that is an ineffective or illogical debate method then turn around and use it themselves.

    So many people have beliefs based on... well basically nothing, that you can actually change peoples minds if you are patient. Ask them the right questions until they are arguing for your side then just say "so basically you think..." and restate your position. If you've done it right, they end up going "oh yeah I guess so."

    You can do this with anything. I'm in science, so I'm agnostic leaning towards atheist. This has not stopped me from convincing atheists to go to church just because they were annoying me with their atheist rage.

  26. I've gone out of my way to sway someone from their original belief for pretty much the same reason.

    Yes and no. Yes, they should be allowed to light up their building as they see fit. No, people who argue against it aren't violating anyone's freedom unless they storm the building and put out the lights or get the government to outlaw it. Otherwise these people are just voicing their opinions and trying to shame the owners into behaving a certain way, which is their right and actually a crucial portion of the network of social controls that stops society from spinning into hedonism absent control by the government.

  28. Think you took my statement a bit different than intended. I wasn't directing it towards those who don't like it. It was for those who think that it shouldn't be legally allowed. Should of made that more clear.

  29. Every president blames the previous administration for the mess they're cleaning up. that's how they compaigned to get into office 9/10 times. Nature of the beast but as far as your comment about why he doesn't interview with Fox is simple.

    1. Why interview with potential liability to your current administration as well as fuel fire?

    2. Your comment above is pretty much what is expected in terms of what a typical interview may look. Fox news is biased just as the others are.

    I don't agree with the man's policies or the way the media tends to make him into an idol but i'd think he was stupid for a Fox interview.

    this is a funny post, as Jay didnt say that at all. Man, you see things that dont exist.
