and yeah i know what you mean about the not drinking. i'm the DD for all my friends, and they're always trying to get me to drink and stuff and think i'm crazy when i don't want to.

i don't really care much it's just that
A. i'm driving
B. alcohol tastes bad
and C. being the DD, i see and take care of everyone else drunk, and i don't want to be that pathetic.

and yeah, same philosophy with me, you shouldn't have to be intoxicated to enjoy yourself.


Ya I quit drinking because its not really that fun and I act like a jackass when I get drunk. Almost all of my friends still drink though...

I dont know what its like in other countries but here in America because the drinking age is 21 everyone thinks its really cool to drink and noone thinks that maybe drinking so much that you puke and **** on yourself isnt fun.
I'll be your number one with a bullet.

it's the same here and drinking age is 18. it's a cultural thing, unfortunately.

look at france.

I'd say look at Europe more generally. Liberal approaches to alchohol breed the sensible drinker.

However, Europe seems to have a much bigger problem with recreational drug use, in terms of pills etc, in night clubs than we do here.

I think a "be sensible and do it in moderation" culture is better than a "no" culture. Moderation creates a wider breadth of experience experience and an awareness of limits, prohibition/abstinences generally creates more extremes of viewpoint.

...Maybe in Scotland but where I live everyone does pills. If you go to a nightclub here, good luck finding someone who isn't pilled out of their face.


On the alcohol in moderation thing, teaching kids to do it responsibly is far more sensible. There were calls a while ago to prosecute parents who gave kids alcohol at home, and to raise the drinking age to 21. Both are ridiculous, counter-productive ideas. Kids who have never been denied access to alcohol don't go crazy so much. Generally having a stable, decent upbringing helps prevent alcohol abuse as well. Trying to prevent traumatic family situations would lower binge-drinking rates as well.

I was just saying that the problem has been more prevalent in Europe for a greater period of time than it has over here.

And to put it frankly, if you tried to make Christianity the religion of Texas, I would like to see you dead.
----------------------
I would argue that Christianity is already the religion on Texas as by far the majority of it's citizens are Christians.
Also IMO your post is a gross violation of the posting guidelines and could possibly be taken as crimminal threat.
I'm curious to see what the mods think for future reference.

+3... i guess. i dunno how far these pluses can go, haha.

after all, everything is bad for you if you have too much of it. too much oxygen can kill you, eating too many cherries can kill you, dancing too much can (eventually, assuming you don't stop) kill you... even playing guitar can (dare i say it?) kill you if you play for long enough. say you play for literally 4 days straight nonstop... aside from being tired, your fingers would probably be bleeding and get infected and you could potentially die.

bottom line: everything in moderation.

Oh no!


I probably made that a little too personal, though. Kind of got pissed off when you said there are no seperations between Church and state mentioned in the constitution.

And I think you have me wrong. Make it illegal not to be Christian = those feelings. I don't care what other people are here.

You know damn well that I'm not outside your door and that I am an axe murderer, I would suck it up.


Fear the 15 year old who doesn't know where you live!


EDIT: Where did I say I would kill you? I would like to see a lot of people dead, but I myself am not a physically violent person. Doesn't mean I will not hope for the worst, though.


EDITEDIT: . This reminds me of the Ann Coulter V RATM where they took a quote of a conversation to make it look like a direct death threat.

LOL! I understand. And believe me, I am not afraid. But your post is IMO a violation of posting guidelines. And it doesn't take much to constitute a terroristic threat these days. Like the opening sticky says, let's try to keep things civil, huh?

yeah, it's the same here (not so much with the gun deaths, but the drinking). Alcohol is apparently evil till you're 18, so everyone under 18 tries to drink as much as possible. Even up to about 25 or so, getting plastered is almost expected. When i say I don't drink, or don't drink much, people look at you like you're somehow less fun, they almost feel the need to say "I'm sorry for your loss"... which is retarded.

I dunno, i always worked on the principle that if i had to be paralytic to enjoy myself, the thing i was doing or the place i was going wasn't very much fun in the first place.

God is no more Republican than George Bush's staff writer is literate.

God (whether you refer to Christian "God", or Islamic "Allah") is omniscient and omnipotent. He backs no political party.

I don't understand why you guys need guns for protection anyway? It kinda seems counterintuitive, improved quality of life, better median incomes and reduced segregation seems like it would stop you guys from killing eachother. Not guns.

Yes, I know that I am bringing up an old topic, but this is one that I like discussing in political debates.

It's not that we need guns here. But we've had them for so long now that it'd be next to impossible to get rid of them.

Also, if someone is commited to killing someone, they don't need a gun. It's not like guns are the only things used. If we ban guns, then we need to ban hammers, axes, chainsaws, etc. If guns are outlawed, then people will only find other ways of killing people. Even barre hands have been used for killing someone before.

Yes but fire arms make killing more people alot easier and quicker, i doubt a killer could kill 10+ people or even 5+ with his bare hands or something....

You really don't know what you're saying do you? Any one can snap your neck literally as easy as a twig. However you are right killing people is a lot easier and quicker when you do have a firearm IF you know how to use it properly. Contrary to popular belief it is actually really difficult to kill someone with any handgun. They are amazingly hard to aim with when the object is still , if the object is moving ... well... I'd rather use my bear hands if anything.
#190
In my opinion, guns being banned isn't going to make criminals, gangmembers, etc. get rid of them. They've already broke the law once, and guns make law breaking easier. Those may be reasons to ban guns, but what's the point if they're still going to be used by people we don't want them to be used by?
#191
More people die from heart disease than from guns every year. We should ban McDonalds. ^_^

But in all seriousness, I say keep the guns, but ban shit like machine guns and assault rifles. You don't NEED those things. A hit squad isn't ever going to come by your house, a situation that might necessitate one of those weapons. Rifles and handguns should be enough (although I'd prefer getting rid of handguns too, since they're so much easier to screw around with, but it's still hard for me to justify banning them).

Wait a second. Have you ever heard of this document called the Constitution? Its a pretty important political document. Its what the United States of America is founded on.

Its says:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Laws arent magic either. If you outlaw something it doesnt make it go away. It just means people cant get it legally.

executive branch is the president, vice president, and his cabinet. it also extends through the armed forces and the police department. it's main job is to enforce the law.

legislative is the congress. they make the laws. it's split into two houses, the senate (with 2 members from each state), and the house of representatives (state representation is determined by population). senate is the more powerful.

judiciary is the court system. it makes sure that all laws passed are constitutional.

they each have power over one another, such as the president (executive branch) can veto laws passed by congress (legislative). but then with enough votes congress has the power to override a presidential veto. the supreme court (judiciary) also has the power to declare the law unconstitutional, and it will not become a law. the judicial branch has to approve cabinet members for the president before they can take office.
