In Topic: The Walking Dead Season 5

Yesterday, 10:50 PM

Last episode of the season coming up.  Saw an interview on some morning show with Norman Reedus a couple weeks back and the reporter asked him what to expect in the season finale.  He said  "Get your tissues ready and get ready to scream at your television."

 

This season has been a let down,  so this last one better be good.


In Topic: The hardest, hardcore lyrics you can remember?

Yesterday, 09:59 PM

The blind men shout, Let the creatures out
Let's show the unbelievers
The napalm screams of human flames
Of a prime time Belsen feast  YEAH!!!

 

As the reasons for the carnage
Cut their meat and lick the gravy
We oil the jaws of the war machines
And feed them with our babies

 

 

.............

 

 

Body bags and little rags

Of children torn in two
The jellied brains of those who remain
Put the finger right on you

 

As the madmen play on words
And make us all dance to their song
To the tune of starving millions
To make a better kind of gun

 

:shocking:  :headbanger:  :headbanger:  :headbanger:

So, the Reagan Democrats never existed?

:D

Sure they did.  EVERYONE wants to vote for a conservative.   :D

The GOP is at a crossroads of sorts in my opinion.  There are several subsets of the party.  You have the Rand/Ron Paul Libertarian Tea Party faction.  You have the Religious Conservative Tea Party like Cruz and Huckabee.  And you have the more moderate, wants to work with the Democrats like Paul Ryan and Huntsman.

 

I respect the Religous Conservative subset because they know their values and they stick to them come hell or high water.  A part of that is respectable to me.  My issue is that, in D.C. the unwillingness to compromise causes gridlock and nothing gets done.  Rather it makes things worse imo and causes wider gaps with the fringes.  I believe you have to give something to get something and move things forward.  Some politicans are able to do that, some stick to their beliefs come hell or highwater.

 

But more specifically here are four major things I don't agree with:

 

1. Cruz favors putting American boots on the ground to fight ISIS. 

2. Cruz favors a flat tax.

3. Cruz opposes abortion, even in cases of rape

4. He is against net neutrality

 

While I think he is smart and a terrific speaker, I don't think he is willing to work at all with anyone who's ideals and morals he disagrees with. That is pretty much my concern with him. 

 

ETA: They have measurables out there to rate how liberal and conservative a person is based on voting record, public comments on issues, and other factors of the like.  Cruz is the most far right conservative of any other canidate in a very long time.  He's more Conservative than Santorum, Bachman, Huckabee, Palin.   He isn't just far Right, he's all the way Right.  It's why he won't win a General Election.  Cruz can rev up the far right masses and fringes enough to make noise in the primary but that's about it.

Thanks for the serious reply bro.  I disagree and think it is imperative that we nominate a conservative and not some establishment moderate/liberal.   Reagan ran as a conservative and they said he could not win.  He won in two landslides.  Not Obama landslides,  true landslides. Around 44 and 49 states landslides.

 

Dubya ran as a conservative,  even though he wasn't,  and he won twice too.  Folks had not figured him out when the second election came around,  plus,  folks did not want to change POTUS in middle of war prolly.

 

Ran what you are talking about last two elections and lost to a guy with virtually no experience at anything.   If the GOP runs another moderate,  it will just hand the presidency to the democrats.  

I was just curious as to why you had a problem with this guy.  So thanks.   :cheers:

 

ETA:  Not sure if you followed what happened in the Israel election,  but they all said the same thing about Bibi.  He won HUGE.  Check it out.
