The lamest idea...to use environment for political purposes. These guys are the best con artists ever...

Dalai Lama: Nice FF8 speak.

And I voted for Nader just to piss people off.

Pericles, their entire party is based on protecting the enviroment. They are not using the enviroment to further their agenda, becuase the enviroment IS their agenda. They are no more con artists then any other political party.

Thanatopis, that's is funny, but are you going to tell me that no one in else is the world fell for that crap. You know Dubya would have if he gave a shiat about the enviroment. It was probably just some low level PR guy who read it and then told the higher ups about it, who bought it without doing their own research.

The Green Party altruistic and all, but they still have a long way to go before being viewed as much more than goofy hippies. I still respect Nader, which is social taboo these days.

Tree-huggers just isn't politically correct. Can we please stop saying it. These pukes prefer to be called by their correct name, terrorist-huggers.

i only vote so i can speak of politics.
i only vote for greens is so im not responsible for what the winners do.

Really Fb-? That's funny cause I thought it was the ultra right wing(nuts) that were in on it with the terroists. Being that they have a shared hatred of our and Isreals government. Hmmmm...

2001-11-08 02:29:26 PM
whatever, Fb-...ya gotta hate somebody for something, huh?

don't you (any of you) think the 2 party system is pretty lame...specially since your party affiliation doesn't really count for shiat. i mean, you maybe an ass or an elephant, but when it comes to a specific topic aren't your ideas your own or do you simply read from your party's handbook?

demo's can and do vote against minority topics and repub's can and do vote against major corporation interests...parties are stupid and pointless.

but, since the tradition isn't going anywhere...getting another party in the game with only inprove the situation...or not.
 
2001-11-08 02:34:08 PM
Maybe you should learn what the Green Party represents before calling them terrorist-huggers

In fact, maybe if you weren't a dumbass, you could understand that the environment and attacks on terrorists have nothing to do with one another.

Or maybe you should just continue being a dumbass troll everywhere, so nobody will ever be surprised when you show no wisdom whatsoever.

Yeah... I think that last one is the best idea.

yodaTuna,

I agree. I've suckered lots of people

a bit of a dim-bulb.

I think and edit button would be cool. So
would a spell checker.

yay.. my very boobies.. yippeeeee.. In any case, I'm a *greenie* but I'm all about kicking some taliban bootay. I'm happy that the Green Party has gotten this far, now if it could only get farther. Not all Green Party members are airheads who clutch on to trees and scream "MURDERERS!" in regards to the Afghanistan airstrikes, much in the same way that not all Republicans are Jesse Helms (shudder) and not all Democrats are Jesse Jackson.
 
2001-11-08 02:50:45 PM
p.s. remind me never to name my kid Jesse.

I love the green party too, they are all for the fall of corporate america.

But..in the grand scheme of things the green party gets all of it's great qualities overshadowed by these "dirty butt hippy tree (terrorist)-huggers", and the intelligent people who are an active part of the party i.e. Jello Biafra & Ralph Nader don't get much respect from voters. So I kinda throw my votes away by voting for them.

Just a note. Stupid people are everywhere, they are put on the planet to constanly make my life more difficult and miserable. I hate them all. Including dirty hippies.

Bananafish: First you have no idea what my politics are and second, looking at your profile you seem awfuly **green** yourself. Gotta start somewhere, prick.

Apparently you did not read Nader's campaign platform before you forgot to vote for him due to too many bong hits the night before the election. If you had, you would have noticed all sorts of positions that had nothing whatever to do with the environment.

I am a member of the PACIFIC GREEN party mostly because there is zero difference between Republicans and Democrats.

I own an AK-47.

I love Jesus.

I am not Mormon.

I am Oregonian.

I love hockey.

Fark you conservative farks.
 
2001-11-08 03:17:25 PM
huh? I wish I knew what you were talking about, Habeas. I *am* a Green Party member.. and I *don't* have a clue as to what your "politics" are because all you said was "I lost my posting virginity". I can't be a prick because I'm a chick. Lay off the brownies, bud.

tarl3k:I think fb is going for some sort of Fark record. Most blatant flames in the most comments sections in one day.

Everyone. Please do Fark a favor. If you see a flame, IGNORE IT. Do not respond. It only encourages unenlightened debate. For those of you uncertain as to what flamebaiting is...

(from dictionary.com) flame: Informal. An insulting criticism or remark meant to incite anger, as on a computer network.

Let's not see Fark go the way of so many other sites.

have a nice day,

mh

Lordargent, you're RIGHT. It's STUPID STUPID STUPID that the Green Party be given recognition! I mean, GOD FORBID that the United States actually have a DEMOCRACY, right?

Jeez...
 
2001-11-08 04:18:10 PM
I vote Green. Quick, someone insult me.

"Other parties recognized....include the Reform, Libertarian, National Law and U.S. Taxpayers parties."

Isn't that the Natural Law party? Seriously?
 
2001-11-08 04:22:28 PM
Oh boy, now the Green Party can be corrupted by big money like the other parties!

Time to celebrate.

Oh, and I voted Green too.

Lordargent, you're RIGHT. It's STUPID STUPID STUPID that the Green Party be given recognition! I mean, GOD FORBID that the United States actually have a DEMOCRACY, right?

Thats right God forbid. Democracy is nothing more then tyranny of the majority over the minority. LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC!

I love the green party too, they are all for the fall of corporate america.

So you admit that the green party is a communist party?

The green party has some good ideas, but they're a little too stoner-friendly for my taste. Here's what I'm screaming:

1. Corporations have too much power and too little accountability. A corporate death penalty for incorrigible offenders and greater accountability for company executives for crimes is a good idea.

2. Education is not easily accessable to the poor. A government program to allow free first-year tuition to a community college (the cheap ones, not the expensive universities) renewable for a second year based on grades is a good idea. Although we have some good financial assitance available, it could stand to be quite a bit better. Being uneducated practically guarantees that you'll stay poor and so will your children, and everyone should have a fighting chance to get off their asses and move up in the world.

3. Health Care availability just plain sucks for many people, particularly old people and people in their early 20's who are too old to be covered by their parents' insurance, and too young and inexperienced to get a job that provides them insurance. It needs some help.

4. We are farking up the environment pretty quickly. Anyone that's tried to breathe anywhere Newark, NJ knows what I'm talking about. We don't need to run around hugging trees and saving animals, but we do need to make absolutely sure this planet is fit for today's and tomorrow's Humans.

5. Assisted suicide should be a non-issue. If someone wants to check out, how could anyone call it a bad thing? Allowing terminally ill patients to check out early if they want to saves a lot of people a lot of time, money, and suffering.

 
2001-11-08 04:31:56 PM
Surprised it took them so long. There has been a Green Party in many Euro nations for quite some time. They finally figured out that the Dems only care about the envrionment 'cuz it harks off the Republicans.
