  1. Goku. Without a doubt. Why? Hair. Goku. Yellow, glowing, pulsating mane that cascades past his knees. Superman. Ridiculous, over-styled combover looking thing with a "There's Something About Mary"/Alphalpha piece sticking out of the front. Like something you'd get from a drunk hair stylist at Master Cuts.
  2. I agree, but there isn't much that can be done about it at this point. The Fed took control of the government the day it started printing greenbacks. You couldn't get rid of it if you tried. Actually, Andrew Jackson was responsible for eliminating the previous central bank, but doing so nearly bankrupted the country and caused one of the worst recessions in American history. I'm rather certain it was also illegal.
  3. It's true. Check his website. It doesn't end there, though. He wants to remove us from all similar international unions and agreements as well. This includes the UN, GATT, CAFTA, NATO, NAFTA, WTO and the International Criminal Court. He also wants to eliminate federal income tax by repealing the 16th amendment and abolish the Federal Reserve. Basically, Ron Paul has the most outrageously massive balls of any human being to ever live.
  4. Right, the idea is to remove these regulations by taking us out of international organizations that have outside control over American interests. The idea of a free market is centered around each nation being able to define its own policies regarding international trade. Currently, the WTO is responsible for governing trade rules and agreements between all prominent trading nations.

  6. It's more than extreme. It's impossible. Ron Paul represents a return to isolationism as outlined in the constitution, which, realistically, will never happen because we get off on being "the world's only superpower" and would rather see the value of a dollar fall through the floor than relinquish our crown.
  7. ...and people wonder how we got to where we are. Please, if you're too apathetic or disinterested to educate yourself on the issues, do us all a favor and stay home on election day. The unfortunate truth is that both parties are equally useless at affecting any real change. Rather than being characterized by a certain ideology, both parties have resigned to defining themselves based on their differences over a handful of moral issues that are, ultimately, completely irrelevant to the actual function of the government. If you were to remove one of the two parties, you would strip the other completely of its identity because both are defined entirely by their differences to one another. Our government officials are elected according to their stance on issues like abortion and "gay rights", ethical debates centered around the "morality in politics" agenda that has dominated recent elections. These are issues that question an individual's core values and sense of right and wrong, creating a great deal of loyalty to the party that share's those values and effectively taking the politics out of a political election. The unfortunate result is the problem we face today, an elected government that is a gross misrepresentation of the people. The problem is that the politicians dictate what the important issues are going to be before their campaigns even begin. At that point, all they have to do is draw a line and stand on opposite sides. Meanwhile, we remain content to squabble over whatever vapid bullshit they decide should be argued over ad nauseum rather than deciding for ourselves what is and isn't important to us. This year's election will be a perfect example of why our current two-party system is, at best, incredibly unfair. If you look forward to the presidential race, it's fairly obvious that, regardless of his or her stance on any other platform, we will ultimately be choosing a president based on one contention: Iraq. Unfortunately, there are only two parties to choose from, and, as always, they have placed themselves on opposing sides of what is currently the single most divisive issue of the election. This forces us to adopt a president with a political agenda we may not agree with because of party lines that were drawn around one fucking issue. It's because of this juxtaposition that Americans have become completely oblivious to the politics of their own government. The politics don't matter given that, ultimately, all we can do is pick a side and hope for the best. By the way, good luck even getting a chance to vote in the next election. Under the Patriot Act, the president has the authority to indefinitely postpone elections during a "time of conflict" and, since it's impossible to win a "war on terrorism", we're one media-hyped bombing away from having our government replaced with a dictatorship.
  8. Did you ever stop to think that perhaps cancer and global warming are God's way of weeding out the ones who don't have giant penises? I bet you didn't! Seriously, though, let's be realistic. Does anyone actually know how much money has been spent on "dick research"? Viagra, for example, was originally intended to treat heart disease. I'm willing to bet that the amount of money spent on research for these pills is a fraction of a percent when compared to something like cancer research. I'm also willing to bet that the amount of money spent on this type of research is a fraction of a percent in comparison to research for vanity products like skin creams, cleansers, detoxifiers, whatever the fuck make-me-look-younger lotions, diet pills and all the other bullshit lining most women's medicine cabinets. It's easy to make one person's problems seem less important than your own, but let's not pretend to be less selfish than we really are. I'm fairly certain that insecure men aren't to blame for people dieing of cancer. Speaking of which, Lady, can you forward me a few of those emails? I'm going to be dating again soon, and, well... It's easier than being funny or charming.

    Dreamcast 2

    With the increasing number of independent developers being bought out by big-name publishers, exclusive titles are becoming less and less common. No publisher is going to become exclusive to a single platform because it would severely limit their number of potential customers. It's only a matter of time before we'll only have one console to choose from, and we can finally end the hardware debate and go back to actually playing games. Give it a few years. If Sony tries to push more ridiculous hardware with their next console, it's almost a guarantee.
