Real cute video, Chief.

Can't wait til you grow up and need a job.

Hope CAP AND TAX doesn't limit your opportunities.

They say he who is not liberal at 20 has no heart.

They also say he is not conservative at 40 has no brain.

Good luck with your schooling, depending on who your teachers are, you just might need some.

We could probably all use a little spring - it has been a long winter.

Global Warming, of course.

Or was that Climate Change.

The story changes so much out of East Anglia University in England, I get confused.

Nice comment, Chief
Maybe you could make an argument or a point next time. Insulting others, when are we told that's unacceptable? Kindergarten? First Grade? I thought Andrew was the one that needed schooling.

Moving on

I have an even better idea. Let's ignore these issues completely. Let's keep spitting hatred at each other instead of engaging in discussion. Forget progress, forget making the world a better place. We should keep thinking about ourselves. We should sit at our homes, angrily mashing away at a keyboard because that's how things get done. Let's keep using stereotypes, logical fallacies, and blanket statements to put others down. On nights when council meets to deal with issues, let's skip them because we all know council's a corrupt body out for their own good. If people ask why, let's cite old age wisdom and claim it isn't cynicism. Let's tell them that they'll understood once they get older. Yea, let's keep this up. It's the goddamn American dream. Right?

It is awfully interesting how those that disagree so often hide under anonymity isn't it?

I don't agree with probably 50% of Andrew's political stances, but we find some common ground to work from, particularly on parks and environmental concerns.

Any good free market advocate should understand that the earth is a resource and it should be protected, the same way that employees are a resource that business owners SHOULD treat properly in order to succeed in the long term. The problem is, too many Republicans (and I'm a registered one) think business is all about making the most money at any cost. They talk about not adding restrictions without understanding that the current system ALREADY gives breaks to big businesses that shouldn't be there in the first place. Don't think so? For any easy example, look up imminent domain and Walmart. They get land cheaper than anyone else because they say it is for the "public good." It is that kind of thing that shouldn't exist in a true free market. If you want to preach against "cap and tax" maybe you need to take a hard look at the system and talk about repealing regulations that benefit large businesses. Maybe you should really consider the effects humans have on their environment and what favoritism of big business does to the earth. I'm not saying we create global warming, because I think it is debatable if we are the cause or not, but certainly we have hurt it in other ways by "biggering and biggering" to quote Dr. Seuss. A true advocate of the free market would understand these things and find the real relevant battles to be fighting- against corporate favoritism that allows big business to treat all of their resources, people and planet, as trash.

Forgive my tirade. I am thoroughly annoyed by people who use catch phrases and party rhetoric to act like they know what they are talking about.

And for the record, I would rather have our 20-somethings thinking, even if I don't agree with them all of the time, than sitting on the couch and ignoring the world around them.
