  1. IMO, Beck is a very dangerous character as he ties almost everything back to religion and god. The tea party movement, free markets, individual rights, etc are all promoted on his show on such flawed premises that he has to be doing more harm than good. This guy is no advocate for reason, I mean come on he has a painting of Washington and other founding fathers with the words faith, hope and charity under them. Day after day he talks about how religious the founding fathers were, how this is a christian nation and how evil liberals are because they want to take god out of school and separate church from state. Beck is nothing more than a religious conservative and not one of those Republicans that just pays lip service to religion he believes it hook, line and sinker. He may expose people to Ayn Rand's work but he is such a mental midget do we really want him associated with trying to spread secular reason?
  2. Don't forget all the shit in the meat you are eating too. Combine that with all the shit you are drinking in the milk and I dare say, you are full of shit.
  3. I know one sort of crime is kidnapping. Arizona is now the kidnapping capital of the U.S. and second only to Mexico City in the world.
  4. Great short biography of who Tesla really was: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSpi8GwDZfY
  5. From my understanding and research Australia's War on Drugs is on par if not worse than the one being waged in the U.S. You may not care because you do not take drugs but the political climate for this to be happening must be pretty statist.
  6. I was looking over the blog for the time line for how this thing is going to get enacted. One question I thought the penalty for not having insurance was supposed to be $695 or something like that. But on the timeline in 2014: "Individual mandate penalties begin (phased in from $95 in 2014 to 2.5% of taxable income in 2016)". So does this mean that if you don't have insurance by 2016 2.5% of your income will be the penalty? That seems like a hell of a lot of penalty.
  7. Being a vegan myself for over 10 years she is one of those vegans that I have run across many times in my life. The story goes like this: A teen struggling with their weight and most likely an eating disorder turns to veganism to help lose weight. Their version of a vegan diet consists of eating cereal, potato chips, and some other vegan junk food. Health issues galore ensue. They then blame all their health problems on eating a "vegan" diet.
  8. I guess 'ol Tommy boy has never seen the movie "Unit 731". The movie dramatizes and documents the horrendous things the Japanese were to doing to Chinese prisoners in their pursuit of biological and other weapons of mass destruction. They were actually pretty close to developing clay bombs that would drop super black plague infected fleas on cities. When they had to abandon the site because the Americans were kicking the Japanese in the teeth they left the fleas and the area was devastated by the black plague killing untold amounts of Chinese. But I guess we shouldn't think about these things and just say we were after them cause they have slanty eyes.
  9. Watch Beck around the holidays and you can see he is a religious nut. I also think it has to do with his past alcoholism and how he overcame it with the higher power and all that goes along with it.

    They showed the whole season (english dub) on adult swim or the cartoon network a little while ago. Since it is licensed in America if it is not on DVD/Blu-ray already it will probably get released soon seeing as it is one of the most popular and highest rated animes since Death Note.
  11. lol, that was funny, don't forget the small 7 year old japanese girl that can show you how to edit photos.
  12. I think the only answer needed for his film was written a while ago and it was called Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal.
  13. Even more upsetting than Obama's speech was the republican's response to it. The republicans are bankrupt, and leave no options in 2010 for me.
  14. IMHO, I would say the DEA and the War on Drugs (thanks Nixon), to be one the most damaging frauds perpetuated on the American people. The really messed up thing is that America has egged on this War on Drugs around the world and chaos has followed. Locking up non-violent drug users, gangs that terrorize cities, corruption of law enforcement, funding terrorism, and the list goes on and on and on.
