What are your thoughts
Why is this a wrong section. Are we not in politics
Islam is a way of life and includes all things
Most importantly politics
Ramadan is not Holiday. Ask any MuslimPolitical News Writer answers:This question belongs in ‘Politics & Government’, not ‘Holidays’.
P.S. By posting in the section, are you trying to limit the answers to Muslims? I don’t get it. This forum is open to everyone.Linda asks…IS Michelle Obama Racist?First Lady Michelle Obama brought renewed energy to the NAACP today, delivering the keynote speech at the annual convention one day before the nation’s largest civil rights group is expected to condemn what it calls racist elements in the Tea Party movement.

I would take it that she agrees with what he says and likes it and they are very good friends.Donna asks…Is it just a tiny bit arrogant to call yourself a prophet like Texas governor Rick Perry did?Fox News Neil Cavuto: You have kind of like the Chris Christie phenomenon: very popular outside your state, still popular but not nearly as popular within your state. There are even Tea Party groups within your state who like you but don’t love you. […] What do you say?
PERRY: I say that a prophet is generally not loved in their hometown. That’s both Biblical and practical.

I asked him ‘Why do you need a tach.?’ He said the idea was to be able to rev the engine until it was just short of exploding. I said ‘Why don’t you rev it up until it explodes, then just back off a little?’ ‘Cos I was trained as a broadcast engineer, and that’s how you set the gain on an amplifier.
Well this is what Gov. Goodhair is trying to do. He wants to get crazier and crazier, saying things that will get him a lot of attention in the media. The idea is to say more and more outrageous things, things calculated to draw criticism from the major media. Then you hold up the criticism to your audience and you say ‘See how they hate us?’ The real masters of this technique are Ann Coulter and Bill O’Reilly.
Eventually he’ll go too far–if ‘too far’ is even possible for Republicans these days. He’ll say something -so- stupid that even his fans will think it’s stupid. Frankly I don’t really know if that’s even possible in Texas. But when that happens. Goodhair will know he’s reached the limit, and he’ll back off about 1mm.
BTW the line about a prophet not being loved in his home town, that’s a very common line from the Bible. It didn’t mean Perry is identifying himself as a prophet.James asks…Are conservatives masters of projecting their own flaws onto others?Or at the very least, criticizing things in others that their own movement has been well known to do?
Exhibit A: OWS and all the empty rhetoric about vandalism and this:
I’m not condoning either group’s troublemakers but I don’t label the Tea Party according to the actions of their most insane members either. What about you?

and I was talking to him. I could tell that he liked me because he would always stare at me ect.
but I think when I was talking to him I might have made the wrong impression. he’s in the church band so he’s always busy when ever I see him (Sunday & Wednesday) and I don’t wanna be like (I want to talk to you alone) or whatever. I think that would be awkward. I just want to have a conversation with him, so he can get to know the real me. I was looking at his facebook and we have so much in common. I don’t feel like he really knows me. bottom line: what can I do to get to have a REAL conversation with him?? it seems like every time I talk to him it’s only little things like (good morning) blah, blah, blah.
Things we have in common:
we are both really in to politics (tea parties & such & we are teenagers)
we both listen to the same music
he plays the guitar and my dad has
some gibson guitars… (cool points for me maybe??) lol
and I know this sounds really silly… but I was think about tripping & falling down
on purpose in front of him. to get his attention, and see if he would help me up?
and on wednesday nights we have dinner for the people in youth group too. so the main time I would get to talk to him would be at dinner
and I don’t want to ask him out yet. I’m sorta new to this church and… I just don’t want to go on a date with him yet.Political News Writer answers:Try getting together with him and some of your new friends from church. Get some people together and go to the park or hang out somewhere and have fun. Don’t get a big group or it will still be hard for you to talk to him but have about 5 or 6 people (that includes you and your guy). It would be a good way to become better friends with him and other people from your church. I hope I helped. Best of Luck! :)Steven asks…Who is going to Vote in 2012? Who and Why?Who is going to Vote in 2012? Who and Why?
Personally I’m not because politics is just a primitive excuse now a day… I believe that they only help 1 part of the problems other then the whole, and that we should solve these problems with Science and understanding (Or the Science Method)
With that type of progress we can help schools, the ecosystem, the economy, and hopefully the world.
So what do I vote for? The Venus Project and or the Zeitgeist Movement! 😀
It’s a plan that I want to help with, it’s not great but its better then what we have now!
But forget about me, who do you choose and why? And yes it can be for a certain group like the tea party and what not.
Please leave a respectful answer and thank you for reading! ^_^
huh, Who would you vote for President (USA) in 2012Political News Writer answers:I agree. Voting really changes nothing. We fool ourselves and pretend it does, but history proves it does not.
However, real change is coming. It is certain that the next 20 years won’t be like the last 20 years.
The question is, will we embrace love or fear?
Our current monetary economic model is fundamentally flawed. It requires infinite growth, which is impossible on a planet with limited resources. Infinite growth means the economy requires us to keep buying and consuming at an increasing rate. If we stop, then it all falls apart: businesses fail, unemployment rises, the unemployed don’t have money to spend in their communities, and the downward spiral begins.
Why is change certainly coming? There are many reasons, but the main ones are:
+ Peak oil has been reached. There is not enough oil for humanity to continue on the way we have been, but there has been no urgency to find an alternative. Look around you and think about how we use oil. It is everywhere! From your plastic toothbrush to the tires on your car. We are addicted to oil, but it is a limited non-renewable resource that is running out. It may already be too late, but governments don’t want people to think about that because it would lead to anarchy.
+ Technological unemployment is inevitable as our computers and machinery gets better and increases a corporations profits by replacing the largest cost: human labor. It’s happening all around us. Farming has long been automated, manufacturing has long been automated, and now the service industry is being automated: self-check-outs, DVD vending machines, stock brokers, travel agents, newspaper classifieds, etc. Get ready for real estate agents to be replaced en masse by FSBO on-line websites. Why do you think unemployment numbers not coming down, but corporations profits are steadily climbing? Corporations have to embrace technology and limit their need on human labour, because if they don’t, then their competitors will.
+ We’re destroying the one thing that we all depend on, the Earth, and we’re doing to with ever increasing efficiency in the never-ending quest for more profits: pollution of the land/air/water and unsustainable stripping of resources faster than they can possibly be replenished.
We must change our ways. The future of our species depends on it.
Real change is not made with elections and changing country leaders.
Real change is not adding more laws, implementing more restrictions, and giving up personal rights and freedoms.
Real change is not “going green” by bringing your own shopping bag to the grocery store.
What is real change? First, we have to start by looking at what is important: We have one planet with limited resources that must be carefully managed in a sustainable manner to be available for all future generations.
Is money important? Can you breath money or eat money or by sheltered by money? No, money just facilitates exchange so you can obtain necessities.
What if we could make available all the necessities of life without money? What if we could do it for everyone on the planet in a sustainable manner?
Luckily for us, we can. We have the understanding and advanced technology to do just that.
We only lack the maturity as a species to go where we need to be going.
The Venus Project is all about using our best knowledge and our best technologies to create a good life for everyone, and to sustainably manage the Earth’s resource for all future generations. Anything less shows the immaturity of our species and allows the problems of the past to continue into the future.
The leaders of the world’s countries will not embrace the idea of The Venus Project. It is too radical and supporting such an idea would likely lead to losing their job.
Instead, the movement to switch to a Resource Based Economy must come from the grassroots. There are more of us than there are of them. If the people want it, then it can happen.
Right now, it’s all about spreading the word of the possibilities we can achieve and the better world we can all live, now and for our future generations.
