Oh but what's funny is that they have done nothing about the strip clubs or rub and tug massage places? Oh and you can still go down to the river and see the girls sunbathing topless....

So pictures of boobies=bad, but boobies are still ok

mloree: You couldn't do that in American cities because of the way blacks behave here. People have to flee out to the Suburbs to keep away from the violence and drugs. I blame it on the welfare mentality.

It's nice to see what FARK has become.

it's not going anywhere. I just had to comment after that Pennsylvania hayseed from a city smaller than my neighborhood decided to spew some idiotic racist bullshiat. I really shouldn't have bitten seeing how racist comments from people living in towns that are 96% white are a dime a dozen.

I'm just sick and tired of the world's governments banning stuff, constantly.

I wish there was another "New World" and we could perform another great experiment like the creation of the US, only with much stronger protections against creeping over-government.

I'm not a fan of Heinlein's writing, I think he's an asshat that lets his politics ride roughshod over any human realism in his writings, but he said one thing that I shall paraphrase and I agree with unreservedly -

Man always makes himself busy creating rules and laws about the activities of other men. Never restricting his own, always looking for something that "others" do so he can ban it.

It makes me sick.

MDGeist: I really hate how soccer moms and Muslims republican douche bags now rule the world.

FTFY

... ya know, just in case you missed:

"Ironically, the world may have a bizarre coalition of puritan New Labour and evangeligising Americans to thank for this giant leap forward for moral mankind"

... and ...

"Researchers in the field of sexual relations have complained for some time that the Bush era meant it was impossible to pursue any research - even in the UK - that failed to address issues in ways that aligned with the fairly narrow moral agenda of US neo-conservatives."


Republican douche bags: is there anything they can't screw up for everyone else?

Little.Alex: I dunno about that. I've never been to Hungary, but I've been to Ukraine and Russia dozens of times. On a warm night; you can walk down the main street of any Ukrainian city and drink a beer and talk to people. They even close down street traffic to make public drinking a little safer. Xrishatic street in Kiev is like a big open street party every Friday and Saturday night. Music, beer, chatting, flirting, ice cream and women and children too.

Little.Alex: roscotsmalls: It get's worse....

There also getting ready to implement a law making it a crime to drink in public here and require all bars that share a building with any appartments to stop serving alcohol at 11pm...

I have moved to the Utah of Eastern Europe

GTFO!!11! The public drinking is what I like best about Kiev! It reminds me of what America could be like without blacks; People able to go out and socialize without violence and massive rude behavior.

What about the Russian Mafia? I know that they are all around Eastern Europe. Heard they like to frequent bars/pubs in Budapest, Hungary.

My dad always talks about how it was over in Europe when he was a military policeman in the Army. I really think that my dad actually felt safer over there than here.

Seeing that you are also from the Harrisburg, PA area what do you think of all the crap that is going down in Harrisburg? I really think that place is going to down hill fast starting in November if not now.

Sorry for mentioning reality. Have you ever been to the United States?

Would you take your wife and kids for a nice walk, drinking a beer and chatting while you push the stroller, in downtown Detroit or Washington? Or L.A.?

No, you couldn't. Why not? You can in Eastern Europe. What's the difference?

We've taught millions of people that if they destroy their own lives, somebody somewhere magically owes them money.

Stop turning off your brain for the sake of political correctness. Give yourself the luxury of a thought that wasn't put between your ears by a television. I'm always amazed by the slave mentality of most Americans: "If I only have State Approved Thoughts I am a Good Person!"

Go spend a week in Kiev, and come back and tell me the difference. Most Ukrainians are much, much less wealthy than "Poor Blacks" in America. But they don't have the destructive culture, and violent mentality- so it's a nice place.

Loophole. Your Honor, this isn't porn, it's an instructional video, thus pursuing another goal other than just depiction of sex acts.

It's not something that everyone, especially those in power, will admit to though. Perhaps it's a different effect, like the secretly gay religious types and politicos being the ones that preach and legislate the most hate...

That flawed culture hypothesis is just racism 2.0 created by media pundits and the like watching rap videos and thinking they were a reflection of "black culture". I guess watching TV > interacting with people? This kind of crap hooks hicks such as yourself who have no interaction with anyone outside of your extended family and lends legitimacy to your fear and loathing of those with differing skin tones/last names. Me thinks you are the one watching too much TV (and possibly too much time with your cousin... you know the one I'm talking about).

Good point. Except when the American Government is overrun by these evangelical types, and these people are in positions to decide how research money is spent it can obviously create problems. (The "abstinence only" stipulations with AIDS reseach money for Africa is a good example.)

I've read somewhere in the past six months/year about the rise of the evangelical movement rising up in the UK, too. I lamely tried to google it but didn't have much luck. You could maybe find more info, though, if you're so inclined.

And you didn't bring politics to it. Those quotes were taken directly FTFA.

I'm a contractor. I move around. I'm originally from Chicago, but for the last couple of years I've been doing contracting in Washington and New York -so I got a home between the two for a particularly juicy 5 year gig. Next year Texas, previous gig San Francisco, I've been a lot of places, including Ukraine and Russia.

Funny how you pretend to know things about people. Like you know my friends and habits and education. Everything in your post about me is 100% wrong, but since you can't address what I said, I understand your need to fantasize and produce personal insults. You're a lazy minded person, and I introduced a new idea, and that makes you feel threatened and probably gave you a headache.

Do this; turn off the TV. Go somewhere. Go see what the rest of the world is like. You wouldn't be such an ignoramus if you opened your eyes.

Me thinks you are the one watching too much TV (and possibly too much time with your cousin... you know the one I'm talking about).

What has been stylized as "black culture" is not specifically black, but it is more predominant in the African-American population, per capita, than in other populations. It does have very specific cultural markers, such as difference in language (the "ebonics" dialect) and difference in values, including a preferentiality toward drug use and a devaluing of the education system. This is not to say that a member of "black culture" would not want to see his or her child succeed, but rather that the child should succeed in ways that are valued by "black culture" rather than the culture of others (in fact, members of the "black culture" tend to have a heightened desire for success among the children of "black culture"). The values of this culture are very highly devalued by the majority of Americans, and thus its cultural markers tend to be made criminal activities which is, the theory goes, why Black men tend to be a much higher percentage of the inmate population than they are a percentage of standard American population.

It's not, as you suggest, "crap." It might be that the term "black culture" is inappropriately named, because the name can serve to reinforce racist ideals, but it is very much a different cultural group and treating it as such can be of real value in terms of education, laws, mutual understanding, and so on. For education, for instance, schools that have learned to value "black culture" and its own forms of literacy and learning have seen extremely positive results in terms of student performance.

In one sense you're right: Russia has less political freedom. That's true.

But Americans have lost other freedoms, in different ways. Taxes are much lower over there. America has the highest taxes on Earth now.

And how free is a woman living in Detroit, or South Chicago, or L.A. or Washington, who must lock herself inside as soon as the sun goes down? She's under house arrest for life.

You can lose a lot of freedom without the Gov't getting involved. Or more precisely; with the Gov't ignoring the situation.

If you can think for yourself; you'll see it's not so black and white.

Eh, Scandinavia would like to have a word with you, they have 50-60% income tax.

Of course they have pretty good lives in a lot of other ways, lots of vacation, a very family oriented working culture. And somehow without taking away adult freedoms too. I wish my (UK) government would take a look over there and see how they "think of the children" (by allowing dad to work 7am-3pm, for instance) without banning porn/booze/whatever.

That said they do have some fairly high alcohol taxes.

God dammed Ukranian pentacostals yes there are a bunch of them here in Sacramento. A few years ago a bunch of them started harrasing some Fijians at the lake because the men were dancing with each other at the lake as is part of their culture (also misogynist) any ways the Ukranians start throwing around some gay insults and then two of them kill a Fijian. One of the Ukranians flees to russia where he is also a citizen and can't be extradited the other is found guilty. The Ukrania pentacostal community was in arms saying that they did it to protect the children and the one found guiltys sister says on the radio,that the victim wasn't killed because he was gay but because he acted gay. The Sacramento area has a wonderful diverse group of immigrants from around the world but we could definitely do without that bunch.

Of course they have pretty good lives in a lot of other ways, lots of vacation, a very family oriented working culture. And somehow without taking away adult freedoms too. I wish my (UK) government would take a look over there and see how they "think of the children" (by allowing dad to work 7am-3pm, for instance) without banning porn/booze/whatever.

That said they do have some fairly high alcohol taxes.


Oh yeah. I was thinking Corporate Taxes, not personal, but I should have specified. But if you're successful, income taxes in the USA are well over 50%.

/and b4 somebody goes there, yes Japan has a corporate tax rate that is .04% higher than the US, but when the dividends reach the owners their capital gains rate is lower for most investors.
