  1. I don't think anyone voted for him and expected there to be no discrepancies. What president EVER has no discrepancies between pre- and post-inauguration? Campaigning is campaigning, not running a country. I don't feel betrayed or let down at all.
  2. Kind of...haha not really. I forgot about this place for quite a while. Then doublenecker commented me and I got an email, which reminded me of here. I looked around and posted once, and haven't done anything since haha. This was like a week ago. School is just so busy, I can't really afford to spend much time on a forum. So I end up just not coming because I know I'd get addicte

  3. I'm a PC gamer. Recently been playing Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress 2, Mass Effect, and World of Goo. If you have L4D for Xbox, I'm sorry. Aiming is way to slow without a mouse, and that hampers the atmosphere a lot for me. It's much faster and more intense on PC. Mass Effect is AMAZING. Except for having to restart my computer once an hour because the game freezes. My PC is capable of running L4D and Fallout 3 on the highest graphic settings, so it's more than up to snuff. The game itself has technical issues. A lot of people can't even play the game. But it's only $20 on Steam, so n
  4. Oh I see, you were cheated because Obama more than doubled your candidate's electoral votes. Right. And all of a sudden, because your candidate lost, 'it's not fair!' "MCCAIN LOSES " Get over it.
  5. I think the design is beautiful. I see where you're coming from, but if you can improve...why not? Plus I think it would be kinda weird to be in an exact replica of the twin towers. Sort of like a haunted house deal. Does anyone get what I'm saying?
  6. It seemed to me that he was more struggling to keep control by twisting the facts so Obama had to straighten them out. So those who don't know the issues (or the candidates) might have bought it. But then again you only saw the first 20 minutes.
  7. I go through my metal moods every so often. Not right now, really. But I mostly like hardcore metal, stuff around there. Our Last Night Misery Signals The Fall of Troy Norma Jean Throwdown Scary Kids Scaring Kids Circle Takes The Square John Henry Vs. The Machine Lower Definition Underoath
  8. ......Who are they? I feel that additional research is necessary.
  9. That was on the local news! Some radio show host called them socialist maggots. For expressing their opinions, which happen to differ from his. See what kind of people support McCain? The ones who want to restrict your rights. Wtf? It's actually really annoying, you posting the same thing all the time. Same with that other guy that's always like "PALIN WINS ".
  10. I really enjoy reading Hermit's posts. Given I am a democrat, but Hermit is crazy knowledgeable about this stuff, and I appreciate his point of view. Makes ya think (if you're open to that sort of thing ). And the reason you're not seeing major news coverage on Biden is because: Biden isn't the first woman on the presidential/VP ticket. Biden isn't extremely unknowledgeable about national politics. Biden doesn't preach about god in regard to politics. Biden's views aren't nearly as controversial as Palin's. Obama's choice of Biden actually made perfect sense, and McCain decided to
  11. Actually, McCain's Palin-boost has run out. realclearpolitics.com showed McCain with a very slight lead after the Republican Convention, but his lead has dwindled and gone. The polls are now tied. Surely we'll see that trend continue, and Obama will regain his lead (which he has held almost constantly, by the way. Not to mention McCain has not even attained a lead that reaches Obama's average lead thus far ). And that's not even considering that we have some sure-to-be entertaining debates left in store, which will certainly expose Palin for the rookie she is.
  12. Mine's pretty easy... I don't want a hot-headed liar in office, who will probably declare war on Russia. And I don't want someone as inexperienced and extreme as Palin being that close to presidency. The Republicans build her up as more experienced than Obama because of her legislative experience. Uh, no.
  13. I think he was referring to Gore getting more popular votes than Bush....not a conspiracy. There is a difference between participating in religion and justifying political action (WAR) by means of religion. These aren't the fucking crusades. The government has nothing to do with the Church. Palin's going to have to learn a lot, and fast, or come debate time Biden will walk all over her.
  14. Uhhhhhh yeah. I would call 9/11 more tragic than both of those. Killed/injured more people, and led us into two wars, not to mention an economic crisis. 9/11 affected a lot more people, and in many more ways. Tell me that's not as bad as the Oklahoma City bombing or Columbine. The only thing that comes to mind comparable to 9/11 is Pearl Harbor, but 9/11 was an attack on civilians. So I would call it the most tragic, yes.
  15. Do some reading. It's all right there. What makes me uncomfortable is how McCain hasn't explained how he's intending to change America. You know, the whole 'party of change' deal. What are his plans, and how are they going to lead us in the right direction?
  16. I don't understand. By 'hunting for sport', you mean people hunting without a dire need to do so, right? It's no different than buying a chicken at the store, except you do everything yourself. There is no buying a moose. You buy a gun, you buy ammo, you buy tags, you drive somewhere, you find a moose, you shoot it. You clean it, you haul it to your car, you drive it to a meat processing factory, you wait for them to process it, you pick it up, and voila! Delicious, fresh meat. The only difference is who kills the animal. Does it really matter? By your definition of murder, is harvest
  17. Yes, the ads here are abundant when the elections happen. Notice the date of the first link - 2004. There has been plenty of time for amendments to be made. As of our last set of ballot measures, which was August 26th, a person cannot fly on a plane and shoot a wolf in the same day. I don't know how long this has been in effect, and the measure wasn't about hunting wolves, but those rules were mentioned and made clear in the measure.
  18. ...........Nope. We actually just voted on a ballot measure related to this. They wanted to expand the 'aerial gunning' rules, that are already applied to wolves, to grizzly bears. The rules that say you can't fly in a plane, land, and hunt them in the same day. The rules that say only fish and game officials are allowed to do it. To my knowledge, nobody is allowed to shoot animals from a plane. Though I think I will do some reading on it, try to find the actual legislation.
  19. I don't find that funny at all. First, I'd like to know where you got that statistic. And if it or something of its nature is true, I'd like to add that a lot of that is probably because of all the native villages who aren't educated at all. I don't even know if these people have access to birth control. Here in Anchorage, the more civilized, modern cities, I don't believe it's that much of a problem. Actually, to my knowledge, she hasn't done anything of that nature. I have no idea where you got that notion. And to clear up something about the aerial hunting of wolves
  20. Well of course Zogby's going to show McCain with a large lead. They always bump his numbers, and shouldn't be regarded as a credible source. I'll admit the polls have gotten a lot closer, but realclearpolitics.com's polling average still shows Obama in the lead. Guess we'll see how it plays out when the debates start.
  21. Dunno if you've noticed...but McCain has never been ahead of Obama in the polls. Where's this "real America" you're speaking about? And Sarah is doing nothing to pull in more voters. She's so Republican it hurts, that's where the strong reaction is coming from; she's only energizing the people who were unhappy with McCain but voting for him anyways.
