Isn't that the opposite of the other place that also doesn't exist?  :P

Yeah lol, those idiots who believe New York is real. Empire State buildings and diners? People didn't actually fall for that crap did they?

I was going to keep the troll factor up, but I think I should be sensible.

We've had these threads before, there's no need for atheists or religious people to try to force their beliefs onto others. If you do feel the need to discuss it, I think there is still a religion thread floating around somewhere.
Lets keep one contentious topic per thread, shall we?

True, sorry about that.
Update: I would just like to add a little sidenote the discussions about religion these days are not so much about people shoving their beleifs onto others, nope it is no longer the case. It has been essentially a one-sided debate about questioning one's beliefs and how religion is at the heart of all problems in the world. Preaching reason and clear thinking, yet not actually doing it. And that's all I am going to say, as far as I care about the matter.

There's a couple of other political stuff that we could cover...

Greece's insane financial problem...

Blagovich's indictment...

Portugal's new goverment, who hopes to turn the country around and reduce the size of goverment.

Typing stuff in big font and exaggerating situations isn't going to make you seem more logical.

Of course the US violated the rules, they should have consequences. Should have been brought up way sooner.

Sorry if it sounds that way, George, but I didn't put the font that big... Nor I edited it in 1969.

The font is at 99px!? I had it at 8px or less.

Looks like Keynesian economics have some more supporting evidence.

I'm assuming those are CBO numbers. Lord knows their methodology is flawless.

No. Those are official universally accepted employment numbers released from the bureau of labor statistics each month. Congressional Budget Office doesn't announce past numbers, it predicts future numbers, which are also typically accepted universally, but whatever. That's not relevant here anyway.

Even when the CBO director publicly casts doubts over their own reports?

The provincial election campaign's in full swing here.
I'm a bit undecided on who I'm going to vote for, so I took an opportunity to do some volunteering alongside the local NDP candidate. Size them up a bit, and get an idea of who I might be voting for.

Quit volunteering : ( you make me feel lazy. Which I am lazy, but I don't like to be reminded, haha.
