  1. The U.S. is a constitutional democracy, which means you have the right to vote for people like Obama. The problem with the U.S. is not primarily political, but philosophical. The U.S. needs reason
  2. There is no logical sequence of causality that links de-regulation to recessions. De-regulation isn't teh cause of the economic crisis, and it's not a knock against free market economics, because the economic problems are caused by regulation, not de-regulation.The CRA literally forced banks to lend subprime mortages. Aside from that, the gov't created easy opportunity for lenders to sell subprime mortages by financially backing Freddie and Fannie. Then you have the 700 billion dollar bail-out to prop-up the housing market. In fact, it's a perfect against gov't interference in the economy.
  3. When I say it's a failed system, I'm referring to any country that practices it, to whatever extent, which happens to be every country in the world, including mixed economies such as Canada and Sweden. The old Soviet Union is just one of the best examples of Socialism, along with Nazi Germany and Cuba. What's terrible about dying waiting for an operation in Sweden, or not being able to afford a car, or paying 25% in taxes on your food? They have the exact same problems that are typical of socialist influence. Laissez-faire capitalism is the antithesis of Socialism. Or, Socialism is th
  4. ;) One thing that I think hasn't been mentioned is the proposed subisidy cut to the parties, which was one of the supposed reasons for the forming of the coalition, along with Harper's failure to present a plan to "fix" the economy. What you won't hear anywhere is what is required to "fix" an economy, or what constitutes "breaking" it. The truth is that there's really no such thing as a broken economy. An economy that's in poor shape is so because it was inhibited or interfered with, an act possibly only to the government. Recessions are the result of inflation. Inflation is caused by the
  5. got friendly with Matt Good, at some point, apparently!
  6. That's a good idea. Though at a certain age, your kids would probably resent you if you snooped on their private life, especially if they didn't know you're monitoring what they're doing. I'm talking about 13 and 14 y/o's, who are still kids but starting to gain independence. Do you spy on them then?
  7. So basically I need to reformat the c: drive and when I click to delete the partition, it says I'm not allowed. I have the XP service pack 2 update. I called Microsoft, who transfered me to some guy in india. After much struggle in trying to understand what he was saying, he got me to change the boot order, and then said there was nothing else he could do. what? I don't want to haul ass my PC to a store when there's something easy I can do to fix it. Any ideas?
  8. Nobody has complemented and collaborated with Matt as perfectly as Genn did. Matt didn't "write everything", just the vast majority of it. Sadly, the only way they'll get back together is if Matt and Genn both hit their heads and suffer amnesia.
  9. On the positive side, you're able to get pretty much anywhere in Toronto in under an hour more or less. That's a really big plus to anyone starting out in a new city, especially if you don't have a car, and especially considering the rising cost of gas. If you find work relatively close to where you live, you can buy a bike and get around no problem. Lots of people do that. The biggest downside to Toronto has to be that it's the most multicultural(racist) and one of the most liberal cities in the world. The city is separated into dozens of sub-groups, divided by culture and race. There
  10. The thing is that with the rise in technology and drop in philosophy, the culture requires that parents be far more responsible than ever before. From the time your parents (or grandparents) grew up to now, this is a totally different world. And that is unprecedented in human history. The answer is an easy one. Parents are responsible. it's harder to be responsible, but they're still responsible. To the idea that the internet causes children to be preyed upon, you can add to those other fallacies, like when people blame food for fat people, or guns for murder, or stupidity for Obama.
  11. Those definitions in response to marx. In actuality, I think "threadshitting" is used to mean posts that people don't like, whether that means someone says something you don't like, or whether it's a post that demands too much of the reader. So that's childish. If most people don't like my posts, that doesn't mean they're shit. One person's threadshitting is another person's stimulating conversation. I view dropping short, narrow, perfunctory remarks as being more suitable to be called "shit". So what, that's my subjective taste. I put quite a lot of effort into a lot of my posts. They're ofte
  12. ;) Religion causes adults to marry children. Sex is a part of marriage, therefore it stands to reason that religion causes pedophilia. I don't know enough about pedophilia to say to what extent the problem is genetic. The problem is obviously biological and psychological and you can draw analogies to gay sex. Maybe some are born with that desire. Maybe under conditions of extreme stress people develop that desire, or maybe they just satisfy the desire with the opportunity that's readily available to them, like prison sex (How much of prison sex is motivated by a desire for men as opp
  13. Yeah, I know that Corey Haim(SP?) had a bad relationship with the producers because of the whole drug thing over the years. On IMDB it says he's in the movie, but I don't see him in the preview.
  14. D'lite, I don't view argument as inherently hostile nor do I view an attack on my ideas as an attack against me. If someone wants to argues with me, I am not "offended". Sounds like you do get offended. So if it annoys you, then it's probably not a healthy thing for you to do. But, at the same time, it's also not healthy not to be unable to argue. You're alright because you won't shut-up, even though you say you want to. ;) I'm anything but a diplomat. So what? That doesn't mean I'm not civil, and I almost never resort to personal attacks, even though others usually do with me. I really do n
