Election

Post by Theicecreaman on Sat Nov 03, 2012 12:42 pm

Is anyone voting?

I'm gonna be busy on election day, and I forgot to do the early voting thing. I imagine Wonko's opinion is, "Voting only encourages the bastards." Razz

I figure you might as well vote for the lesser of two evils, you know. I mean, you just know that they aren't actually gonna do 90 percent of what they say, so you might as well vote for the one who best represents your interests. I would have voted for 'Bama if I weren't busy.

Obama is definitely the lesser of the two evils. Romney is just a lying, filthy rich, sneaky, secretive bastard.

I'm seeing things around the Internet that if enough people vote for one of the other parties it'll officially end the two party system in the states. That'd be cool to see happen.

I'm not planning on voting though. My reasons: I really like saying "I told you so" and there are people I know who will be voting for Romney. When the world burns (and it so needs to burn) I will thoroughly enjoy throwing it back in their faces as I head to my well-prepared zombie shelter. And if Obama wins instead, well, good for us.

Either way's good for me.

I hate the two-party system. It's the silliest thing in the world (I'm non-affiliated).

People who are on the extremes are sooo narrow-minded and will only look at things from one perspective. The thing is, people will generalize so hard from what they learn from their experiences.

They'll see a low-income person living a lavish lifestyle and say, "All poor people are actually rich and have the potential to go to Harvard, be millionaires, and live in a ginormous mansion with 15 servants and a robot." And at the same time, people will say, "There is no chance in hell ANY poor person will do anything unless we give them a shitload of money."

What happened to the middle ground? Like fo'rizzles.

As for the "I told you so thing," that's hilarious Razz Rock Hard

I love how they have Zoe over there Razz

Watching Firefly is probably one of the best pieces of advice I've gotten from Wonko.

I'd call Romney two-faced, but it doesn't do him justice. Perhaps it'd be more appropriate to liken him to a spinning top? Or a weather vane? I don't know, I'm not a good enough of a pundit or wordsmith.

But Obama is a less-than-competent, fork-tongued demagogue too.

If I were still a silly, ignorant teenager, I'd say I was going to vote Johnson wholeheartedly. As an older, sillier, and more ignorant teenager, I'd say Johnson is still the lesser of three evils. But at least by voting for him, I can hope the trend for supporting a third party candidate will slightly continue to grow.

To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.)

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except North Dakota, which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.

Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

-----------------------

1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,' 'favour,' 'labour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize' will be replaced by the suffix '-ise.' Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up 'vocabulary').

------------------------

2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ''like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter 'u'' and the elimination of '-ize.'

-------------------

3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

-----------------

4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can't sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you're not ready to shoot grouse.

----------------------

5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Although a permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

----------------------

6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

--------------------

7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.

-------------------

8. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

-------------------

9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also acceptable, as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth - see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

---------------------

10. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English dialect in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one's ears removed with a cheese grater.

---------------------

11. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).

---------------------

12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries.

--------------------

13.. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.

-----------------

14. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

---------------

15. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 p.m. with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

God Save the Queen!



Whelp. At least we'll get BBC now. Hooray Doctor Who!

haha badass!

So it looks like Romney is in the lead ATM. We'll see who wins it soon enough, though.

edit:

Looks like Obama's the president again! Better him than Mitt.

Thumbs Up

Looks like Wonko can't laugh at Mitt if he were elected. "Oh, I'm gonna raise--I mean, lower--I mean, raise taxes...uhhh on Muffins...or uhh alcohol, I mean, whatever the hell you want. Oh, did I say raise? Pffsh. I totally said lower."

Hehe yup: Razz

So, looks like marijuana is legalized to a certain extent for adults in Colorado and Washington: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-rt-us-usa-marijuana-votesbre8a705e-20121107,0,3733245.story

Didn't really expect this.

I think we all know of people who waste hundreds of thousands of dollars on drugs--my main thing with drug legalization is that I just hope it doesn't encourage more youth to get into it. Most of the adverse effects of marijuana are in the additives illegal drug manufacturers put in there to get you hooked (same with the tobacco industry), as well as the damage from the smoke to one's lungs and the mutagenic effects that mess with DNA/protein sequences and shit, increasing the probability of cancer.

Thing is, out of all the drugs out there, marijuana is one of the least dangerous. Most people won't get cancer, and it's hard to say what effect those additives have on one's health because it's hard to measure scientifically. But kids are just gonna keep on trying the next thing to get their high. I honestly don't even care that much about the 60-year-old guy sitting in his house smoking weed, but I care more about his grandchildren watching him do it.

Personally, I would never endanger my body to anything of this sort, or waste my money and time on drugs. But that's just me.

DEA/the feds are gonna be in for a hell of a time trying to combat it, like the article suggested...

edit:

Oh, one more point I have against marijuana legalization is really just this: would you trust your doctor, lawyer, or any other professional working in a field requiring mental alertness and overall dexterity knowing that he or she smokes pot in his or her spare time? It isn't the same as smoke breaks because nicotine is, by definition, a stimulant, while marijuana is a hallucinogen. Would you want that surgeon about to cut into you to do it if you know that he smoked pot a couple hours ago? Even if it was not a lot, do you still trust him? With alcohol, one can discern whether or not another has been drinking because of the smell in one's breath and stuff, but it might be easier to hide smoking pot (change clothes, etc.).

I'd say that's my main qualm against it. No no

SOUNDS LIKE WASHINGTON AND COLORADO ARE THE PLACES TO BE RIGHT NOW HEH. Razz

I do think you're right about people in very sensitive positions smoking pot though, maybe there should be some sort of penalty to deter such behaviour. Like you said, a surgeon smoking pot a couple hours before an operation is pretty fucked up. Not sure if I really care about lawyers fucking up their careers but I guess they could be involved with pretty far reaching critical stuff as well.

I find it kinda hard to imagine people putting their careers on the line like that but I guess it's bound to happen. I wonder how many lawyers and doctors/surgeons show up to their job drunk.

A lot more than I'm sure we want to know about. They work long hours to make all that money they make then probably have to go home to listen to the wifey whine about all the long hours they have to work so she can go shopping to spend all the money he makes and drive a top of the line BMW chatting on her cell phone while driving and oops, was that a child that just got run over, so anyway like I was saying she said and I know but oh, Alice, dear, let me tell you!

Banging Head


Too bad Obama can't make it illegal to be an idiot.

I Agree

My friend has a lawyer dad whose wife (my friend's mom) is like 20 years younger to him. I mean, this dude is old and his wife does exactly what Wonko just described (trophy wife is the colloquialism).

I think what we need is a perception change. That way, people won't have to drown away their pains in nicotine, marijuana, or alcohol to a major extent, because they won't be surrounded by idiots.

You know, the laws of science dictate that evolution among populations occurs during periods of sudden change when certain traits favor survival. Maybe what we need is one big catastrophe to allow natural selection to take place? All the idiots die out while the non-idiots survive? Wishful thinking, huh. Crazy
