International Politics & Stuff

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Rats. When the revolution comes I will shoot them with impunity and kill their dogs and fuck their wives or is it fuck the dogs and kill the wives? I get mixed up when excited.

Yes, pretty much every western country outside of North America has already done it.
Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, India, Finland, the Netherlands, France, Slovenia, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Switzerland, the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Costa Rica, Brazil and South Africa.*

About time the Chinese finally got around to it! :evil:

You mean the oil and coal companies?
Yeah, completely shameless bastards. :evil:

And Bush's Saudi friends are at the root of the whole Al Qaida thing.


Fortunately, Sweden is one of the few countries poised to benefit from a warmer climate! 8-)

We're only doing the carbon tax thing out of sympathy with places like Bangladesh, the Maldives and Florida that will go the way of the dodo when the seas start rising.

Fuck man! This is me drug free. Like Castenada said, some people are so stupid they need drugs to see the truth and to realize it is not the truth. Just an illusion.

Truth is: Drugs can cause brain damage.

Truth is: Carlos was a lying beaner.

Sounds like you could use some drugs man. Why so judgmental? Lighten up you know. You do not know me. I survived shit and came out the other end. I am a father of three and whether Carlos was lieing or not, he wrote a good story. Why don't you try peyote? It might help.

So here we are in the country of the billions sequester. I listened to a show on NPR here and it talked about the disparity in wealth in America. Most Yanks are ok but the rulers suck ass. These times remind me of the old Yeats poem, The Second Coming where he talks about the best not caring and the worst full of passionate intensity. He wrote that before WW2.

These cuts about to happen are the result of lobbyists and the freaking Tea Party. Americans act as if their revolution was planned by God rather than business men.
