Quote from: Michael Vandeven on January 18, 2012, 01:59:47 PMthis is why i get annoyed when people complain about gridlock and herald bipartisanship as some great moral victory for us all. gridlock and partisanship exist for a reason. it's supposed to be FUCKING DIFFICULT to pass new laws. when gridlock goes away and is replaced by this precious spirit of bipartisanship we're always told to believe in, we get wars, the patriot act, and the potential for the erosion of our freedoms becomes limitless. i love it when politicians fight. civility in politics can be very dangerous.

Quote from: Frys Girl on January 18, 2012, 02:23:59 PMI have to say that I just heard Rush's rant on Romney v. Obama, and it was beautiful. That's a great campaign ad. Romney owes Mr. Limbaugh a good dinner. Wow.
Quote from: BobGrau on January 19, 2012, 08:54:23 AMIt occurs to me that America, that fortified stronghold of capitalism, does not have a particularly capitalist attitude towards its politics. That's how it looks to the outsider anyway.

Quote from: Harmness on January 31, 2012, 04:38:49 PMCan people from Boston understand what the mayor's saying? The rest of us find it kind of hard.
Quote from: Scruff on January 31, 2012, 12:13:54 AMHey that's me! I never carry cash anymore, you can use your debit card for anything. Sometimes I buy gum just to get $20 cash back and avoid ATM fees. It's only slow when people don't know how to work the pinpad - and I'm a pinpad NINJA!On a similar topic I hate walking into a gas station and they have the $5 minimum purchase sign. That's against the contract they sign with Visa/MC, you can't even set up the machines to process a minimum, they're just being cheap. You wanna process sometimes you gotta eat some fees. Also, the chuckleheads buying beer without an ID, then they want to argue with the clerk while you stand there waiting. Nobody cares how old you look, granddad, it's the law. How did you drive here anyway?

Quote from: CoastCanuck on January 31, 2012, 05:58:16 PMThe frequent use of the word 'like' . Many teenagers can't talk without saying 'like'.
Quote from: b_dubb on February 01, 2012, 11:13:16 AMi sometimes wonder what America would look/sound like had Moon Unit Zappa not released "Valley Girl". overnight (it seemed) everyone went from being their regional/local norm to a poor approximation of some privileged brat from an LA suburb. anyone else recall this transformation? it must've scared the hell out of Moon ... she never released anything ever again
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on January 31, 2012, 04:52:45 PM "Mumbles" Menino speaks a language unknown to man. We found it funny at first(1993) then it became horrifying and now we're numb. We realize the world laughs at us. Not with us, at us.
