    Doesn't it though? Haha. I do know a few facts about his presidency... but I stray away from politics. It's all slander. Let's all be communists!

    ...just kidding. Communism never works. There will always be people fighting for power.

    Socialism, the government formation, under which communism is classified, looks very, very good on paper (I don't know about Marxism though, I read about it but it was very confusing). Everything is equal, and whatnot, but it has been proven not to work after the downfall of the USSR (Not Russia, Russia fell in 1917 and was re-founded in 1991). The only exception is China, and they still battle constant problems with censoring. Just look at North Korea and Cuba, just look at their economies, the quality of life there, and other factors that are considered when judging a country. Sorry for writing so much, I just love politics...

    BTW, you shouldn't say something like that in such neglect, I'm sure you would never say that to my Russian friend would you?

    I meant no harm in what I said. And I definately didn't mean it in neglect.
    I apologize if I offended you in any way... Just making a harmless joke.

    Anyone watching the state of the union address? Pretty funny to see the faces on the Democrats when Bush says something like "we will balance the federal debt". "We will fix Medicare and save social security". That's what hes been saying for 6 years now. It's horrible, they should ban clapping, plus it makes it like 2 hours longer.

    I commend you for putting fourth the question. But historically you forgot Mickey Mouse.

    I'm watching it, and George has a lot of good points. I'm neither a democrat nor a republican (I feel that I still need time to find out). There is a lot of good I could say about the USA's Figurehead, and there is some bad too. We can't judge a president until about 20-25 years after he leaves office anyway.

    I completely agree, he has some excellent points, but it doesn't mean he will go through with them.

    Thats if the world still exists then ~nuclear winter~ "cough"

    Lol, did anyone notice (my) Senior Senator Ted Kennedy nod off? Was it just me? After a minute he touched his glasses but was still looking down like he was sleeping. It seemed too low for him to be reading as well.

    Haha..I didn't notice it, but a alot of people were doing some weird stuff. Cheney kept on bending over for some reason, and Mccain and Rice looked like they were daydreaming.

    cfitzarl TechSpot Chancellor Posts: 2,520   +9

    I noticed Cheney doing that too. Condoleezza kept frowning, and some others were doing the same.

    I still can't get over how ridiculous it is that they clap every time he says something. It gets so annoying.

    What irritates me is I felt like I paid more attention to the speech than anyone that was there in person. We elected a lot of those people, why the hell can't they pay attention for LESS THAN 1 HOUR, it not even a continous hour, they get applause breaks. Every one of them that screwed around or daydreamed during that speech needs to be kicked in the nuts and or removed from office.

    So true.

    lol..i would love to see that happen

    Whata bout condo rice

    She and Cheney probably get a little leeway because they likely had direct input on the speech and knew every word he was going to say. But those elected people out there in the audience...

    I was referring to her gender.

    kicked in the nuts

    But I'm still oblivious on her gender anyway.

    So maybe you could kick "her" in the nuts.

    The speech in itself is pointless anyway, they had no real reason to pay attention.

    It was more or less bush talking about stuff that will never happen, to get some sort of trust back from the American people.

    I almost feel sorry far the guy, he's so far deep i don't think he will ever get back up, but then again he dug his own hole.

    Those are pretty well thought up, although i don't think i would want to live in the second society.

    Whats up with the furniture restoration stuff lol

    I have no idea, it's randomly generated :) . You answer a few questions and it sums up what the country would be like if it were real.

    I haven't really studied him, I know he's a Democrat, but how far down the left-side of the scale is he?
  20. twite

    twite TechSpot Paladin Topic Starter Posts: 1,083

    He's pretty far left, but those are usually the ones i support. Hes no Joe Lieberman. He's an absolutely phenomenal podium speaker, and is a very straight forward, "honest" man. Of course that is my opinion, but i think about 90% of Illinois will back me up on that.

    Thanks, I'll further look into his views (i.e. war, democracy, etc). I just noticed that Stephen Colbert is up there with 15%!

    :approve:

    I anticipated Obama and McCain to be in the lead, but i honestly didn't think Clinton would get any votes..interesting.

    Why not invite the German lady. She clobbered Condo..

    What ever happened to Paul Simon ? He seemed to hold a lot of promise.

    Now that George had done the dirty work, the scalp hunters move in for the spoils.

    How many Presidents have done better in their second term ?

    Should a second term be allowed ?

    Depends on the president.

    Some i would say no *bush* cough. But others i would love to see them run for 4 terms. So i guess 2 is a good number.
