My "You Might be a Republican" List

1. If you are fine with corporate welfare, but oppose welfare for people, you might be a Republican.

2. If you complain about your right to free speech being infringed when someone else criticizes you, you might be a Republican.

3. If you considered Mitt Romney as "too liberal", you might be a Republican.

4. If you believe MSNBC is the liberal equivalent of FOX News, you might be a Republican.

5. If you complain about Pres. Obama getting rid of the Bush tax cuts on top earners, but have been quiet about Pres. Eisenhower's 90% top tax rates and the 11 times Pres. Reagan raised taxes, you might be a Republican.

6. If you think Sandy Hook was staged, you might be a Republican.

7. If you fantasize about tyrannical government takeovers, you might be a Republican.

8. If you believe that Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, Coulter, etc. are honest, you might be a Republican.

9. If you say you believe in liberty, but have no problems with women being denied abortions, gay people not being able to marry like straight people can, or voting being made more inconvenient for poor people, you might be a Republican.

10. If you claim that Social Security is "unconstitutional", yet you continue to use it, you might be a Republican.

11. If you consider yourself a Christian, yet you are diagnosed with Obama Derangement Syndrome, you might be a Republican.

15. If you consider yourself "pro-life", but oppose universal health care and support the death penalty, you might be a Republican.

16. If you believe that Global Warming is a hoax despite 97% of scientists saying otherwise, you might be a Republican.

17. If you believe that Spongebob and Sesame Street are liberal propaganda, you might be a Republican.

18. If you were more concerned about Twinkies disappearing than the workers losing their jobs when Hostess was going out of business, you might be a Republican.

19. If you think that Obama is a big-spender, but have nothing to say about how much money Bush ll spent, you might be a Republican.

20. If you think that Bush ll won both of his elections legitimately, but you think that Obama stole the presidency, you might be a Republican.

Tell me what you think of this list, and feel free to add more!

Ted Nugent to Piers Morgan: "Kiss My Ass"

Why does Sean Hannity always refer to Pres. Obama as "the anointed one"?

Where did this idea come from that he's some type of king or dictator? First I heard Rand Paul talk about him trying to be a "monarch", and now I just heard Hannity with that "anointed one" crap on a clip shown on Bashir's show.

Why is the concept of race and ethnicity so messed up in America?

This really has been bugging me lately. I'm annoyed at how so many Americans seem to have trouble differentiating between race and ethnicity. Ethnicity is defined as the fact or state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition, while race is a biological and anthropological phenomenon. Occasionally I hear people saying something such as "that lady looks Jewish" or "he looks like he might be Italian or Canadian". How can a person look like they follow a certain religion or be from a certain country? And many months ago on DU when I first joined, I posted a question about whether Hispanic/Latino is a race, and everybody told me "no", and that a person from any race can be Hispanic or Latino. This honestly came as a huge shock to me, since my family and most people I know think that it is a race, and how the media seems to treat it as such (like when they discuss demographic trends).

Do you agree with Coach Belichick that the NFL should get rid of extra points?

More: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/08/23/bill-belichick-doesnt-see-the-point-in-extra-points/

Patriots coach Bill Belichick recently caused a stir when he said the NFL wants to eliminate kickoffs. Now Belichick has weighed in on a play that he says would be better suited to elimination: The extra point.

In an interview on WEEI, Belichick pointed out that the point after touchdown is so easy that it rarely creates any interest at all, and he said that if the league isnít going to make it harder, then the league should just get rid of it.

The "Last Letter" Thread

The rules are simple: say a word that starts with the last letter of the comment before yours.
Example: One person says "blue", so the following comment should be a word starting with "e" such as "egg" or "exclusive". I'll start it off:


Bay Area DUers, what do you think of the plastic bag law?

The Rubber-banding A.I. in Mario Kart is a Cheating Bastard

This game has driven me to a depth of frustration I've never experienced with any game. It sucks without bounds.

Note to Nintendo: Please stop putting cheap A.I. in Mario Kart games. It's not fun, nor is it challenging. It's just fake difficulty and annoying. Period. I'm tired of having massive leads in 150cc only to see computer-controlled characters speeding up and catching me in no time. Every time I hit them with one of my items, they catch up within a few seconds, but when I get hit, it's tough to get back in 1st place.
