honestly I used to debate with these idiots on tranceaddict but as of late those pill monkey stephen harper youth wing wannabes make me nuts.

At least on tribe we get some actual useful debates. On tranceaddict you get 3-4 guys who anytime the government does anything they lose out and blame foriegners and terrorists.

sigh tribe politics room i wuv you

yeah, i've stopped arguing with neo-cons too. i use to find it enjoyable but now it's just reminds me of arguing with 10 year olds. no matter how valid your point is, they just will not concede to it.

it's fun to shoot holes in all their logic and arguments but it gets a little boring after a while because it's so easy.

Substitute the words "corporations and the religious right" for "foreigners and terrorists," and you have just described Tribe to a tee.

that reminds me of the time that my ex gf (who worked at the Fraser Institute) invited me to a young Conservative party social where Belinda Stronach was speaking. I went for three reasons: 1) free beer 2) put in some face time with the gf and some of her coworkers 3) find out if Belinda looked good in person

Omg, what a collection of dorks, hanging off Belinda's every word. She definitely had some charisma, but she had a swarm of losers surrounding her the whole night so I never got up close.

The funniest thing was that the organizer packed up all the booze at about 8 PM. What kind of a social is that? No wonder the Conservative party has the image of a bunch of humourless stuffed shirts. No concept of a good time whatsoever.

Subsitute all the above words with "a whole lot of suck" and we have you to a tee.

I don't know, but doesn't have people of differing opinions make for much better debate? I have never been on TA before, but I find here there seems to be little debate. This is simply because we are all smart enough to know it IS all the fault of corporations and the religious right.;)

you would hope. what i've found is that there's usually 4 types of people in political discussions

1. the idealist (be it socialist grad student or bible thumping neo-con)
2. the shit disturber
3. the uninformed pragmatist
4. the informed pragmatist

the only group that really has anything useful to say is #4. and they are always in the minority and usually are drowned out. tribe has a lot of #1, a few #2, a few #3, and occasionally a #4.
the debate you speak of is usually a pissing contest between # 1 and #2.

Meh... it's not worth it. 95% of what shows up on this board is same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same same.

Might as well have fun with it.

Many statements on TA are so ignorant they make me cringe. Examples/Fun Reads:

I am really glad you brought these threads up, Karim. You brought one particular one to my attention. I hate discussing politics/religion however, I can't just let this go without saying anything.
