Okay, cool. I'll keep an eye on you, and perhaps you can serve as the demarcation of unacceptable stupidity that I've been looking for in order to better moderate CE.

Did Bill Clinton retaliate against Tim McVeigh by razing Pendleton, NY?

Can you explain in full sentences why you think this is a relevant question?

Win. I would have used more profanity in my response, but well done.

I'd like to know when there haven't been petitions circulating to secede. A friend of mine has been running a regular "Secession of the Week" feature on Facebook for years.

Remember when there was going to be that mass exodus to Canada after 2000... then 2004... Mind you, I know one family that actually did.

What I like is how some of my girlfriends Republican friends on facebox were going to move to Canada because Obama won the election. Not quite sure how that one made sense.

Certainly.

"Malik Jalal Khan lives in Datta Khel, a small town in North Waziristan, and is an elder of the Mada Khel tribe. He told me that more than 200 people from his tribe have been killed through the CIA-run clandestine drone program in the last seven years.

Thanks to Pakistani local channels which translated all three presidential debates into Urdu, Malik Jalal has paid close attention to every word uttered by President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney.

Just like these candidates, Malik Jalal is also responsible for the wellbeing of his people. He has to ensure that his tribe's young have stable jobs, children can go to school and sick people are treated in the best possible way. Malik Jalal listened very carefully when Obama said he would further strengthen health care, improve employment, raise taxes on the rich and improve public education. Such promises were doubled by Romney, who said that he would do even better if elected president.

This was all good news for Americans voting in the elections. But when it came to matters concerning Malik Jalal and his tribe's people, there was no good news. Both Obama and Romney promised to continue with drone warfare that has targeted northwest Pakistan if elected.

This means that Malik Jalal still has to live with the fear that any of his tribe's women, children or men like him are all potential targets, as reports suggest the CIA considers every male of able military age a potential terrorist in North Waziristan

It means his 9-year-old will still not go to school due to fear that his school might be targeted by a drone. It means people will still not attend funerals, have large weddings or conduct their fruit export or mining businesses openly.

Drone strikes started under President George Bush but were escalated in real sense by President Obama since he took office in 2009. According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, more than 3,300 people have been killed in more than 350 drone strikes during the last nine years."

Those sentences are very full. Good work.

Interesting. I suppose I neglected to mention this, but it seems like a lot of them are predominantly social issues voters - the kind who are deep Mormon and are surprised other people drink coffee, for instance - It would be interesting if that site also tracked social freedoms.
