[QUOTE="JohnBasedow"]I think it is better for some people. I do not condone brutally killing but execution of rapists ect is fine by me. I don't think a civilized society should have to live with a people who react like that to racial slurs and many of them should be deported. I'm not saying its for everyone, some people are qualified to make these decisions and some are not. Taking the law into you own hands is a privilige.
Indeed, some people are qualified to make decisions about law. They're called police officers, and they earn the privilege of taking the law into their own hands, because there is a high probability of them acting within their established boundaries of conduct. The same goes for judges and for the very people who make the law. All of them have earned the privilege of taking the law into their own hands somehow. I may not agree with every decision they make, but I can trust that they will, in most instances, make calculated, educated decisions as opposed to brash, emotionally-motivated decisions. They will also be subject to scrutiny from other qualified individuals who can over-turn their decisions or discipline them for over-stepping their boundaries.I agree with you for the most part but do you honestly trust judges and lawyers?
[QUOTE="cjek"]Honesty and politics doesn't work. There is almost no way that society would work without lies and deception in politics, because the way things work behind the scenes aren't pretty in any country, anywhere in the world. No government can actually please the public without a negative occuring somewhere else; they can create illusions of the things that they promise, but things like money do not grow on trees.JohnBasedowYeah, I feel like alot of things could be helped out if they didn't put so much money in their campaigns. The amount of money spent for one politician running alone makes me sick.Ron Paul's one of the few guys(yeah I know Hills technically a woman....) running for pres that isn't wasting a bunch of money on his campaign. I encourage GSs more liberal crowd to at least give the man a good look. He was against the war on Iraq and def isn't your typical conservative.
So what? John Lennon wasn't a great singer, technically.
John Wayne fits the western image perfectly, he fills roles different to Eastwood. Respectively, they're both icons for the genre :wink:
i agree with this. wayne usually fit the characters he was playing pretty well. having said that, i must admit that i don't like any of his movies. they are mostly nationalist propoganda. he was also straight up racist.
he was racist? I didnt know that. last thing i remember of him was a rumor that he died of radiation while filming his last movie since they filmed it near the atomic bomb test site.
I actually don't care that he was racist. You have to remember that this was before the civil rights movement, and half the nation was already racist. He wasn't an evil person, just uninformed.everyone's racist by definition. how was he uninformed?
