Stupid political crap your friends post on facebook. - Page 159

post #2371 of 5454

I used to be a hard core republican but changed when Limbaugh went insane..... possibly near around the time he lost his hearing.  But Rush was really cool in the 1990's.

 

But since then I am a centrist.

 

I blame both sides and both sides love to spend spend spend.   Both sides are really chicken hawks.

 

Castrate the house and senate then watch the war end.   This war is only for 2 things.  Oil and religion.

 

 

Cut up the Govt credit card then watch the money being saved!

I never understood the oil argument. If we went into Iraq for oil, why have oil prices gone up and stayed up rather than come down?

It wasn't for the oil consumer it was for the big corporate oil producers. They got exactly what they wanted, higher prices.

Or some such bollocks.

oil is essential for the functioning of our (and the world) economy. it is seen as a national security issue. pump prices are irrelevant. any large scale instability could have dramatic effects. i'd recommend reading "the prize" and "the quest" both by daniel yergin.

Oil was still being produced and sold when Saddam was in power. You think Saddam was going to let anything get in the way of the source of his wealth?

Iraq only produced 1/3 what the US does. Canada, the country that we import the most oil from, produces more than Iraq. What is the big deal about Iraq? They are producing the amount of oil today, that they were in 2000, and we saw a big dip in between because of the war. Iraq being critical for oil is bullshit.

People still think governments are going to spend billions of dollars on liberating people ????

Control of energy sources is the main challenge not conquering territories for the sake of it..

Afghanistan and Mali are different ..They're geostrategical wars to contain the spread of a certain ideology and a domino effect..

The paper from my hometown area uses FB to sign in and make comments. This rules me out from commenting but I get to see FB people posting. Is they illiterate a common type of poster?

We need to stand togeather and force are government to invest in things that will make are future better rather than fighting illegal wars and occupations around the world putting all the money into the military instead of the country to leave are children with future.We are going to leave are kids a much worse world then even the corrupt 1 we were born in.It's rich and poor not Black White and we need to invest in education the thing that gives the people the ability to make our countrys better.A majority of people that we put into power in the government in or so called democracys are more corrupt then most people in jail.The biggest crimes are legal and rob us of are weath and chance at improving are lives.America needs to close most of their over 1000 military bases around the world and have a military for defence not offence like it's been for hundreds of years.This money could be put into the things that help us not hurt us and other around the world.This is the 4th time I wrote but all did not do through my internet keeps sutting down.We need to stop listening to the lies about are history they put in our heads through the MSM, Hollywood, and Education and learn the truth that's available on the net.They do their best to seperate us through race religion and anything else they can.It's called divide and concer and has been used against the people since and even before biblicle times.Their is no easy fix we need to start fresah with people in government that do what's best for their countrys and the world, not just themselfs and their friends well we suffer.

It's impossible to say, since the level of discussion you'll encounter on facebook depends entirely on who your friends are (well, almost entirely, since it also depends on who their friends are.) Incidentally, back when I was more regularly engaged with political and religious debates on SF, I was convinced that my facebook friends list- which, at the time, consisted almost entirely of Hooters waitresses and Lady Cats cheerleaders I'd never met- was, pound for pound, substantially more intelligent than the readership of StyleForum.

Well as you and I are part of that readership you have to figure we skew things against the SF sample universe pretty drastically.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

I would like to know whether you have a newsletter, because I wish to subscribe to these gorilla fighting tactics.
