I can handle it, but why do you want to delete your account?

@  Lito290 : (24 May 2020 - 09:02 PM)

How does one request the deletion of their account?

@  VHS : (21 May 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I gotta join that then

@  Shadow : (14 May 2020 - 01:17 PM)

Sure is. A lot more lively than here.

@  VHS : (02 May 2020 - 08:31 AM)

Oh shoot there's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 06:58 PM)

It's a disagreement between two people...n judging what goes on in there sometimes that's a very apt description xD

@  John Roberts : (25 April 2020 - 05:34 PM)

What's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 04:15 PM)

Activity is spread across forum, discord 'n the site chat room. There's life, it's just hiding under different rocks :D

@  RedAuthar : (25 April 2020 - 04:13 PM)

It's still slow. We ain't dead. Just close

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Wait, I thought this place wasn't dead, it seemed active

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I LIVE

@  wildfire : (22 April 2020 - 10:57 AM)

Ya know John, I wouldn't be surprised if it was me. At least I'm a bit more active these days

@  chief : (20 April 2020 - 05:24 PM)

Discod stays going pretty good

@  Nex : (20 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Is the Discord busy? Still trying t figure out where most of you monkeys hang out.

@  MauEvig : (19 April 2020 - 07:58 PM)

Well, I'll be chilling on the Discord. :)

@  John Roberts : (19 April 2020 - 12:32 PM)

It's just you, Wildfire. You're killing us mate!

@  wildfire : (19 April 2020 - 09:01 AM)

To be fair, there are more rapid forms of communication these days. The Discord server sees a far bit of attention. I remember the IRC too, but that's dead last I looked

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:10 PM)

A shame. And here I'm finally getting back into the spirit of everything Sonic. Well maybe we just need to liven things up. :)

@  furrykef : (18 April 2020 - 06:38 PM)

The forum's pretty dead at the best of times, really.

Well here we were about to attack Syria without a UN nor Congressional permission but Obama finally desired to put it to a vote whether or not to strike.

 

Now I agree, if you use chemical weapons that you should get punished but we are getting mixed stories about who really launched the attack so lets wait and get the full story. More importanly us in america can have a say. Go on Google, look up your congressmen/women and tell them what you think.

We need to do something but a war/military involvement is not an option

Pacifistic, or Just War. I don't think there will ever be a world without War of any kind. It's a living Hell, as some people would put it. But I always try to be the Yin within the Yang

Write to Congress like i did.

 

There's a way to do this peacefully, Obama is too stubborn to realize it (makes me think Romney would have handled this better)

I do not ascribe to the belief that we are the world's police.

First, we don't know who used the chemicals.

Second, the rebels are not any better than the government they seek ot overthrow.

Third, what do we hope to do over there, set up another glowing success like Egypt?

Fourth, Syria has staunch allies that we really don't want to piss off.

 

Military action right now is a really poor idea. I really don't think it is our business.


I love my God, my wife, my 5 kids, and I like my guns, my beer, my whiskey, and my pickup.

I dislike politicians, policemen, diet foods, no-smoking signs, and mowing the lawn.

I like Sonic games from the Genesis days, tolerate the Sonic Adventure series, can stomach Sonic Heroes, and can't stand the rest.

 Obama manipulated uncritical people with buzzwords and hollow concepts to get into office. "Hope" and "change" are meaningless terms without academic clarification and proper execution. If people just asked questions like "What the hell do you mean by change, what are you changing, and how does it benefit America?" We'd might have someone a bit more competent in the Whitehouse.   

 

 He is indeed a stubborn anti-colonial ideologue with a whole lot of personal baggage that deludes his sense of policy. Those are most volatile of politicians (IRS scamming religious charities and conservatives, Gaza, and a foul-mouthed sycophant for a vice-president show how inept and ideologically bankrupt his current administration is). He has no idea of economic, social, and political consequences. Overall, he can't see the world for what it is, but what he wants it to be...so much danger in that.

 

I am an army brat, my father and my father's father are and were military men. I have many people I care about who wear my nation's uniform, and all of them call him one thing: "Zero". Why? Because he has zero military experience (seriously, he is making a mess of our military, cutting important budgets left and right, and he is casting a ballot to throw our young men and women into another war?). He is also doing soldiers very dirty...half of my friends after all their toil overseas are just being heartlessly furloughed by old Dr. Obamnik. Obamacare for one is a giant "cool story bro", naive and destructive (I know of two businesses that I frequent are going bankrupt and three people who are forced to file bankruptcy because it's just about to happen - imagine when it hits the fan. Our budget can't take the strain...

 

 I am a CLT (a community living tech) who works with the disabled so they can achieve independence when it comes to basic life skills; my current client needs the social-safety net because he has special needs. When that social security is divided up into nothing, he and various others like him might not have the needed resources to survive or thrive. His yearly budget is already in danger... Instead, people who are perfectly capable of getting healthcare (or at least save some money in an emergency budget like I do - seriously do this, you will be doing yourself a favor) won't be getting it. Also, when some idiot gets drunk and crashes his car, knocks someone up, or gets an STD - guess who is paying the medical bill, us. When we are busy sharing wealth in a consumerist culture, it quickly becomes consumed. The individuals must produce capital by his works for the community, if he wishes to prosper.

 

To put it simply: If you are capable, if you don't work you don't eat.

 

 I'd encourage willful charity and social policy that supported altruists and philanthropy over a forced mass-socialism any day. Sad thing about Obama's welfare policies is that they don't fare well for those who actually need it, the elderly and the otherwise disabled.

 

 I agree Romney would have done better, he is a man of management and logistically capable. Though I still (after thoroughly studying their doctrine) would be hesitant to have a Mormon in the Whitehouse. I'd fear the connection to the LDS church would cloud his judgment when it comes to social policy.

 

 Look at it this way: A plumber might keep up appearances, he might speak of lofty things, but ultimately what matters is if he can whip out a plunger and get crap done. And if he or his cronies are making up names and setting people against each other in mindless debate, than he is a wolf in sheeps clothing.

 

 I vote Princess Sally. She'd get the job done! She always does. Our first furry president!  :awesome:

Re Uncle Ben. And it only took our embassy getting overrun and Americans sacrificed to murdered by a mob to win it over. The whole Arab Spring is a fiasco. And we all know that no news is not always good news when it comes to Africa and the Mid East.

Gentlemen, there is no "vote".
No matter what you do, no matter who you write, America will march to war.
Many Presidents lay the decisions in the hands of the people, and many of said decisions are turned out of the favor of the President.
Therefore, he alters the "vote" to make it seem that the vote of sorts fell into his favor.
The voice of the Populus, from the POV of a leader, is irrelevant to keep the reign of the leader, as he is dictated by bureaucratic persons of high status. It is never the people's deciding factor, only the likes of the congress. and in the words of a certain person, "everybody loves wartime presidents".

Try as you might, pacifism will take you nowhere.

Oh, I am not naive enough to think this is not what is going through the heads of our leaders. As Orwell once said, "War is peace."
