This is very interesting, only because the public school board doesn't think it's important to teach in California...

I believe we should, ultimately, accept Mexican immigrants and legalize them. This sounds simple, maybe, but it is really a very complex thing to consider. There are a lot of particulars that could make or break the idea, and I've just sat here for maybe 30 minutes thinking about the implications of every tiny thought that's went through my mind... but I believe that the best thing to do would be to legalize the immigrants that are here, now, but deport Mexicans that have a criminal history here which is hard to tell when they're not citizens, and deport drug abusers.

It would help everyone involved, I think, because Mexican immigrants would have the freedom to move out into job sectors that they aren't allowed as illegals. This would cause them to seek higher education, to push out of the barrios that they are stuck in, and would give them rights as employees that they currently need. Getting people out of the barrios will be more difficult than just legalizing them, it's going to take a lot more, but Mexicans are hard working people, good people, they really are. Even despite the fact that they aren't recognized by the state, have no protection in the united states, and are so looked down upon by resident population of America.

So I say we legalize them for the good of the Americans that are and are not currently recognized by the state.

That, or you can all get the f*ck off of my property. I am over 50% real "Native American".

The one about thought processes would be interesting but you put "Yes chemicals" and "No Im in control" as the sides. I think that they're caused by chemicals and a bunch of other things, and you can be in control of your chemicals or thought processes... so I don't really want to get into it.

The one about fear and respect, it's situational. Then, the one about which name is more descriptive, I don't see a purpose it debating this.

I would say music was at it's best between 1915 and 1949.

So, on a scale, 1 (one) being the best...

1. 1915-1949

2. 2000-2009

3. 1990-1999

4. 1980-1989

5. 1950-1969

6. 1970-1979

Classical from all eras is great but if we're talking time periods I think that means popular music of the time... It's hard to get that in there.

Also, I know that this isn't in 4 year cycles.

Maybe you should throw that out there as a debate topic, if nothing else it's 5 points for you. It would be interesting to see other's thoughts on this, but you should set up your perimeters well so people will give worthwhile answers.

"I don't think it's necessarily a lack of interest of will, but a lack of goals and direction, that has de-railed us."

If this is true to you, where should our youth be getting their direction? What should be their source of inspiration?

Excuse me there Xaeon, but the internet was invented by the two hands and beating heart of no other than Al Gore himself! Al Gore may be english though, seeing as he's a tree hugger.

Mostly true, and my view point here is sort of pessimistic, but I feel it's still valid on it's own.

The internet has potential but I can easily see it running into problems in the future. Not just problems that we can get over, but problems that have poorly conceived solutions that people will just accept, as a way of life. Just as television was free, and now it's $30 or something for a select few channels. It's no longer a free roaming place for the conscious mind, it's a sort of Mall that has rules and regulations like every other place in the world. Making duplicates of information is now theft, things can be hidden, there are places that we cannot go, even just for information (I'm not talking about porn).

The internet is a good thing, now, but in the future I cannot tell. So is it's beginning good if it ultimately condemns people in the end... I would say the television was a good thing, but look at it now, it's a monster. A complete waste of time, so that you can watch animals in africa, instead of studying them yourself if you have the balls... you can get news from a network like Fox or any other alphabet network instead of being there when shit goes down, or reading a paper, or talking to people who have been effected by events recapped in the "news"...

Society is debased and no one is asking why. It's as if people are too lazy, to unmotivated to care about the functioning parts in society that make their lives possible. Ask someone in the city what they think about the soil in Iowa or Missouri, they'll look at you like you're a fucking retard, but they're the ones eating from the soil in Iowa! They just don't care anymore, no one cares about almost anything. More people care about Lost or whatever's on the T.V. these days than anything about soil at all, and it's important shit. People look at work as if it's evil, like their boss is evil, and the CEO of their corporation is evil and everything that they stand for as a business is evil... and that's ALL they do, just look at it and complain until they can escape it and it's all behind them... until they have a new job to complain about, they won't need to worry about that other wicked business.

Try making your own business, you will look evil too, because when you're at work your job isn't to be a philanthropist, it's to get something in exchange for something else. People see that as evil too, you see? If you don't just give something to me, you're fucking evil! >:O

People seem to have forgotten, or never learned these things. No one feels privileged, they feel like someone, somewhere OWES them. This is a problem in America, I see it every day. I can list a million things here, that people have opinions about but lack any knowledge of, whatsoever...

I'll spare us though, because you never asked and I'm rambling on the internet.

Hard work in 2009 is:

- recycling

- conserving water and electricity

- growing your own food

- cooking every night (never going out unless it's to the grocery store or a special occasion)

- doing repairs to your car, house, etc. YOURSELF.

- closing the door of an air-conditioned building after you've walked in

- finding a trash can to put your trash in (or if you can't find a trash can, carrying it with you until you do find one)

- being polite to elders, holding doors open for females, opening the passenger door to your car for your significant other

- making your bed in the morning, because it looks good and keeps shit clean

- and then going to work and caring about the business that you're in... as if it belongs to you.

Hard work isn't just swinging a hammer while you're getting paid for it. If you don't work hard, as if you care, your quality of work will follow you home... and then you piss me off when I see your trash on the ground everywhere, especially when it's 12 feet from a trash can, and when I go to the grocery store and have to navigate a 50,000 square foot parking lot full of randomly placed baskets because people can't just walk their shit back to the store, and when I work and all I hear about from my co-workers is shit that could just as likely come from a girl... "I got a new x", "Someone said x", "I can't wait until I'm off".

Call me old fashioned but "just enough" is never enough when it comes to your work ethic.

- Open Mindedness (separation of church and state, freedom of religion, etc.)

- Liberty

- The people who actually cared about America instead of blindly proclaiming it's greatness (Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, Ben Franklin, etc.).

- The abolition of slavery and the industrial revolution.

- The history of flight.

- The Space Race

- Nothing after that... and I always wonder why. When I look back into these history books I'm always like "Where did these people go?". The ones that were inventing things that were useful, and good. The assembly line was an American invention, the vertically integrated business, the refrigerator, the airplane, the telephone, the light bulb, the computer... the microwave, the television if it's worth mentioning...

What happened? If you notice, most of the things invented in the late 1800's, that were sold and bought, were things like Sewing machines, tractors, tools... anything that would be used to help the society as a whole. They were products that increased capital, things that people needed in order to work.

I think that's something that America has lost touch with. We used to be a nation of working people. Now, with the supermarket, our backwards food industry, microwave, televisions, dvd players, cell phones, TONS OF DRUGS, omniscient mainstream media... our stupid politics (liberal vs conservative, hurr durr), and our overly dictating and distracting faith systems, like mega churches and their involvement in politics and society...

We feel like we don't need to work anymore. We feel like we don't need to push boundaries anymore, because the people that we buy shit from will just do it for us, eventually, and we'll pay for whatever they come up with for doing it.

I couldn't imagine having their job... No matter what you do, you're going to have 1/2 the nation pissed off at you all the time.

Government is changing, there is no way to stop it, all you can do is get in there and make sure you're changing it for the better or keeping people

from taking advantage of the system while it's changing. Socialism is something that will come about whether you like it or not, and to be honest, it's for the best of every person to stop

bitching about everything and get with the program. Society isn't small anymore, and it's only going to get bigger and more complex with every passing day.

The government is claiming all of this before it asks you if you want it all back... when you answer yes, you get your Socialized States of America... if you answer No, you'll get your Private Property of American Government.

Very constructive way to use the 50 character limit to your advantage, that joke was actually kind of funny...

I don't think this is accurate, I know more conservatives than liberals, and I find it to be the other way around. Liberals listen to more radio, and Conservatives watch more television. Now, I think this may be because the Liberals get their propaganda from the television, because they're more creative, and the conservatives get theirs from the radio because they're oldschool, so they each spy on each other most of the time.

I get all of my information from the paper, and the internet, which is a combination of everything. I'm an independent, I have to spy on everyone.

Shoop da whoop.

I wish this would happen, but at the same time I'd facepalm. Terrorist Fist Jabs should be an AMERICAN tradition, not to be done with people from outside of the United States.

Wow, so much exposure to porn, so little exposure to real sex... Interesting Joe.

I think this depends on your idea of God and your definition of corruption.


1) dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery : the journalist who wants to expose corruption in high places.

• the action of making someone or something morally depraved or the state of being so : the word “addict” conjures up evil and corruption.

• archaic decay; putrefaction : the potato turned black and rotten with corruption.

2) the process by which something, typically a word or expression, is changed from its original use or meaning to one that is regarded as erroneous or debased.

• the process of causing errors to appear in a computer program or database.

This is essentially the same as the Problem of Evil.

If God created everything in existence, and if everything only exists because of God, then the very idea of corruption is a creation of God. There are a lot of things that humans cannot handle, one of them is power, but why? We have different motives, I think, and different reasons to having power. Is God fighting to stay in power? Does God need to be dishonest or fraudulent? Does God need to bribe? No, an infinitely powerful being would not need to lie, would not need to commit fraud, and would not need to bride. He is of infinite power!

God being the source of corruption is also all-knowing and has infinite power, meaning God can overcome the corruption. People aren't all-knowing and aren't all-powerful. We are just people, and sometimes we lack the ability or desire to catch corruption before it sets in. We fight for power, and then we want more power. We bribe to get or keep power, and we lie for the same reason.

Corruption is in our nature because we are human. God is not corrupt because he has the power and knowledge to fight it.

I'm sort of playing devils advocate here, so I hope I make sense outside of my own head :^/

So what, we'll have enough oil to... run electric generators? The amount of oil that we could extract from those regions probably isn't worth the fabrication of the platforms that drill it.

The sea floor will become as polluted as the city it acquired, not good for marine life. I guess an upside though would be that more people would die diving to a city they couldn't care for when it was above sea level.

Just take a break. You'll find other things to do with your time, hopefully things that you enjoy more.

When you come back you'll have someone to compete against.

I think the only problem with managing the environment is working ourselves into that environment, but it is also the solution.

What I mean is, when we think about managing the environment, what is most important? To us, it is anything that deals with our existance. Sure, we look at the polar bear population, and say that it looks bad, and it's probably due to global warming, but really what we are concerned about is ourselves. If the food chain falls apart, we will suffer. We try to keep things together because it might someday become a problem for man kind, not just the rest of the animals.

But then, we are taking only one natural state of the planet and trying to preserve it. Look at Mars, there are no living things there, and so far we cannot tell wether there were living things there at one point or not. There was flowing water on the surface, CO2 up the wazoo, which is great for plant life, and now look at it. It's cold as hell, and dry. It got that way naturally though. If intelligent life were to have evolved there, would they still be fighting nature to stay alive?

I think the problem is that we assume the planet was created for us rather than assuming the planet created us along it's natural cycle, and is now doing something natural, but not benificial to life.

It's not as bad as you might think. It's definitely not a "fuckfest" because no one on digg has sex.

It seems as though digg is turning into diggchan though, and if you know chans, then you know what you're dealing with. The most liberal trolls on the internet (maybe planet)... and Digg seems to have a love/hate relationship with *chan.

Digg is a democracy though, and the users get what they want... Why aren't there enough conservatives on digg to equal out the content? Because conservatives fear everything, including the internet.

Maybe that's your problem. Stop spamming and pay attention. Your points will slow down but your efficiency will go up if your arguments are more relevant.

Maybe though, if you start doing that, there will be no joecavalry.
