Where should I go next fall? / Re: Fourth of July Stinks!
« on: July 05, 2007, 01:53:34 PM »
Last night I was watching the last three in season 4 leading up to Zoe's graduation.  I have the complete series and am going in order to show them all to one of my friends... It's my crack, really.

My friend used to be really into West Wing, and a few years ago he made me watch like the first 5 episodes with him.  My life hasn't been the same since.  (Although I haven't seen most of seasons 5, 6, and 7.  But I've seen 1-4 about 10-15 times I'd say.)


Initially, I was torn between the fact it was a decently executed show and the incredibly biased and inspid political commentary it contained.  Once Rob Lowe left, the latter won out, and I had to quit watching entirely.

Granted it wasn't especially sophisticated, but I do think it showed liberals at their best--a bunch of people who really think government can and should do something.

The era of big government is over.

BARTLET
You want to cut the line?

TOBY

I want to change the sentiment. We’re running away from ourselves, and I know we can score points that way. I was the principle architect in that campaign strategy, right along with you, Josh. But we’re here now. Tomorrow night, we do an immense thing. We have to say what we feel. That government, no matter what its failures are in the past, and in times to come, for that matter, the government can be a place where people come together and where no one gets left behind. No one... gets left behind, an instrument of... good.  I have no trouble understanding why the line tested well, Josh, but I don’t think that means we should say it. I think that means we should... change it.



And another one...


BARTLET
Why shouldn't I do it?

SAM
I think you should. I think ambition is good. I think overreaching is good. I think giving people a vision of government that's more than Social Security checks and debt reduction is good. I think government should be optimistic.



Edit:  How about one from Josh, talking about the Lend-Least Act, in regards to loaning Mexico money...

Yeah. Simply put, a loan of arms to Russia and Britain, with the understanding that they'd pay us back when the war was over. And [Roosevelt] said this, he said, "If your neighbor's house is on fire, you don't haggle over the price of your garden hose." There are too many things in the world we can't do. Mexico's on fire. Why help them? Because we can.


Ok I'll stop now

My BBQ, where I was promised barbecue, instead had grilled meat.


That's an outrage.

How can you say it was biased?  What about Ainsley Hayes?  ;)

I love the holiday; I watch 1776 and West Wing and feel a lot of pride.   HOWEVER, I'm concerned that this year my waitlisted schools' admissions committees may have taken the week off and I'm nervous!


West Wing sucks.

I always enjoy your posts, but this is just wrong.  ;)


No really... I made a big dinner last night for my best friend and watched 1776 and west wing... it was a perfect day.  Oh, and I took a nap... can't forget how awesome naps are.

To be clear, I was saying Lindbergh was wrong.  Which episodes?  I always enjoy talking about West Wing.  ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Is this enough LSAT studying??

personally i think putting someone in their place is of great value.

Fair enough, I'll recreate my posts:

OP:  Help!
Good samaritan:  Here, try this.
OP:  No, my way is better.
Bosco:  Watch your tone.  >:(
Another good samaritan:  Maybe try this
OP:  No, your advice is stupid.
Bosco:  Watch your tone.   >:(

what why you delete?

Just so I don't have so many silly threads coming up on my unreads all the time.  If I say anything that could potentially have any sort of value, I won't delete.

Understood.  **nod**  I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes here, but could it be possible that this test isn't as preppable as people make it out be?  Maybe a 164 is all I'm capable of?  Could it be that no matter how hard I study, no matter how many questions I go through, I'm simply not capable of achieving a 170+ level score?  If this is the case, I just want to make sure that I've maximized my potential on the exam.  I just want to make sure that I studied my hardest and earned the highest score I'm capable of earning.  I'm open to hearing anyone's thoughts on this topic. 


2) I don't think you really are. You asked a question and a few people gave very good responses that you could have tried to understand better and incorporate into your thinking. Instead you basically dismissed the responses and went back to arguing your original point. Actually, now that I think about it, maybe you don't have the capacity to score above a 170. Maybe you just don't understand.

Yeah, I noticed that too, which I said earlier, but then deleted my posts.  I'll delete this soon too.

girlanon - how did it work when students in different states study different subjects each year.  For example, if you were going into 8th grade, and in your old district they did World History in 7th, and US History in 8th, but in the new district they do US in 7th, World in 8th, what happened?  Would you just take US with 7th graders?

Good question.  For instance, in Dallas we all took Texas history in 7th grade.  But I bet Hawaii and Montana teach Texas history in 8th grade or even 6th.  Am I right?

Lol  ;D
