Welcome to the People's Republic of Common Sense

As with all governments, you need rules. For starters.......

1. Spandex will not be made in anything larger than a medium.
2. Driving the speed limit in the left lane is a felony unless traffic warrants it.
3. If you cant speak the language of the country you live in you will be deported.
4. Welfare will only be available to an individual for six months at a time, with six months between
periods of receiving it.
5. Food stamps will only get you eggs, milk, and raw hamburger. Period.
6. Sports and entertainment 'stars' can only make four times the minimum wage of an area.
7. College will be free to those with the knowledge and the drive to get a real degree. Not in arts.
8. Prisons will house four people in a cell with two beds and meals will be cereal, sandwiches
and hot dogs. And no, there will be no tv's.
9. Cops can not get in trouble for shooting those under the influence of substances that are
behaving in a threatening manner.
10. If the government decides a cause is worth fighting for, them and their family will be the
first to suit up.
11. No, the ongoing civil wars and general stupidity of those in underdeveloped countries is
not our problem.

It is your country too, so suggest some laws!!

I suggest that people as stupid as you should have mandatory vasectomies. Now go back to having sex with your cousin or whatever it is you do. Thinking is obviously not your strong-suit.

Re: Welcome to the People's Republic of Common Sense

Not to start a flame war but some of those things you listed undermine the basic theory of economics.

For example those sports stars are rare talents and when and item becomes rare it's value goes up. Trying to limit that value would end up hurting the economy. On the reverse side, I agree that people should not become dependent on welfare and foodstamps but there is some sort of economics behind foodstamps as well and although I can't remember what it is at the moment cause I'm too busy focusing on the XML I'm writing as I type this, it does allow for some sort of equilibrium in the market for the lower class of america so that money can be spent buying goods other than necessities.

Titanium Grey HB 5 spd, ABS, Moonroof, Leather seats, Exel RS-GT 17x7.0 Hyperblack 225/45/17 Azenis RT-615, Racing Beat Front/Rear Sway + Endlinks, Mazdaspeed MSP3 Coilovers, 88 AWR Mount, Apexcone 6000k HID, I deturboed my car and removed my built engine. I'm now stock powertrain + an Injen.

I suppose you don't know any families who can't find enough work or money to feed their kids, who might want to give them better than eggs and milk. Not everyone who gets food stamps are buying Filet Mignon with them.

People who get liberal arts degrees work hard in the real world too.

And if you don't like the fact that entertainment stars and athletes make a lot of money, then don't buy their CDs, don't watch televison, don't go to movies, don't go to concerts, and don't watch sports events - basically, stop giving them your money. Then you can whine all you want. Until then, stuff it.

Whats wrong with eggs, milk, and hamburger?thats all you need. If you have a family that you can’t afford to maintain then maybe you shouldn’t of had a family. Food stamps and welfare are to help people get back on there feet. Food stamps aren’t supposed to buy you the foods you want, they are to buy you the foods you need.

If...
Nissan Motorsports = NISMO
Then Does...
Honda Motorsports = HOMO?

Re: Welcome to the People's Republic of Common Sense

Personally, I would ban spandex entirely as I can count the number that look in it, equally with those that look good in a speedo, which I would also ban.

The foodstamp issue is a toughie. The economics work similar to rent control. Either you're a capitalist or a communist and history has shown that neither works in a vacuum.

Even if I don't agree with much of what was said, ( funny though much of it was), any time people actually start talking about important issues has to be a good thing.

Oh ya: Many of those civil wars mentioned in third world countries were started and continue to be funded because of american interest. That pretty much makes them our problem.

I do not exist merely to exist.

Re: Welcome to the People's Republic of Common Sense

i dont know about filet mignon, but i work in a grocery store and many people will buy soda and milk in glass bottles for the deposits, on food stamps, take them outside, dump them and come in and buy beer.. thats not where i want my tax money going.

and i dont buy cd's or go to the theater. its a ripoff.

as far as limiting 'talen' they are going to be limited when people decide it isnt worth eight hours of work to pay for a ticket to watch someone PLAY A GAME...whoopeee.. i love sports but that is ridiculous

and phoenix, you said i was stupid but didnt state why??
