They were also branded with the name of the owner in the cause of efficiency we should just ban the English alphabet. Oh wait a lot of the owners were French guess that has to go too

When you get yourself so worked up that you're posting on top of your own posts that's usually a sign it's time to knock off and go get a drink.

This will be surely met with outrage. CNN talks to 12 historians and political bloggers and determines Obama is no Ronald Reagan. http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/17/politics/obama-reagan-compare/index.html

When Reagan declared in his inaugural speech that government wasn't the solution but the problem -- and backed it up with small-government, anti-tax policies -- he took on FDR.


Lol, what?

Reagan wasn't transformational from just a rhetorical point of view. His "trickle-down economics" -- cut taxes on the rich to stimulate the economy -- still shapes how we pay taxes today.

I got 80% for Bernie Sanders, 74% for Hillary Clinton, and 69% for Rand Paul. Everybody else I matched with are all Republicans

I have the weirdest hodgepodge of views. Pretty much all because of SF





It says I agree with Bernie Sanders on healthcare. Thing is I don't think I really do. I dont think a mandatory single payer system is the system that best fits the US

I'm fairly certain I would be pretty liberal if I didn't hang around here so much. A lot of you have convinced otherwise on a lot of issues

Flawed tool is flawed. Take the Obamacare question, for instance. There's nothing there to represent my thoughts, but of course, fucking Canadian style singer payer is there.

Yeah my thoughts weren't there either, but I think it's accurate in that the stances represented are the stances of the people who are trying to get elected. It just might be that your stance isn't represented by any of the potential candidates

Also it turns out Donald Trump is actually pretty liberal on immigration issues? He says IIs should be granted citizenship, children should be given automatic citzenship, should be offered in state tuition rates if they pay taxes, but supports stronger measures for border security

Is this accurate? Or some kind of a mistake

That's because US liberals refuse to get educated and always seem to think universal healthcare = single payer.

I tried to put my own stance (wide) in and it would not submit.

I wrote my own stance, but instead of influencing your results they have a little section at the end that shows all people's opinions from everywhere

I'm fairly certain that the policy experts know all about universal healthcare but because the voters really don't the politicians have to kind of take stances that are familiar

is my conjecture

Well I've read your ideas and I have to admit that from my liberal and uneducated point of view they seem like something I could get behind , but even given that you still have to get past the conservatives who declare anything short of total free market medicine the second coming of Joseph Stalin

PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) -
A trip down the toy aisle had a local dad doing a double-take. He's furious over a popular Star Wars action figure sold in stores in our area. He says it's not appropriate for young children.

So is it harmless movie memorabilia or is it too racy for youngsters? Take a look and you decide. We sent our Chris O’Connell to talk with the dad and do some digging.

It's a toy on store shelves all over the country, but some parents say the action figure intended for kids 4-and-above is way too inappropriate for kids of any age.

We caught up with Fred Hill and his daughters at the Target Store in Deptford shopping for their birthday gifts.

The single dad was shocked to see this on the toy aisle shelf. A Hasbro-made Star Wars Black Series action figure of Princess Leia wearing what the box described as a “slave outfit”.

"That’s pretty inappropriate,” he said. "I got two daughters I don't need seeing that crap."

The toy features a scantily clad version of Princess Leia complete with a chain around her neck. The toy even had dad blushing.

"They're like ‘dad why does this doll have a chain around its neck?’. I don't have any answers. I was just blown away looking at it," Hill said.

Even his kids thought the toy meant for ages 4-and-up may be better suited for adults.

We showed the action figure to other parents who had a similar reaction.

"It’s a little indecent. A little more clothing would have helped," Eugenia Mirica said.

"It’s just a bit much for a child. So, no, I probably wouldn't give this to my 4-year-old and maybe not an 8-year-old," Tiffany Mahan said.

"It's true to the scene, but I don't know if I would purchase this for my girls," added Allison Degarmo.

We found the toy is sold online and in stores like Target and Toys R Us, but this dad thinks Princess Leia needs to go.

"But that kind of crap is in the toy aisles for me to see? Nah," Hill said.
