of course, intelligence is not always a substitute for common sense.  being incredibly bright doesn't necessarily make you a better leader.
Neither does being functionally retarded.
When you have somebody dying because they are poor and black or poor and white or because of whatever they are ... that erases everything that's great about this country.

Well the original thread topic wasn't so great either.

first of all my aunt was functionally retarded...and she was more articulate than Bush has ever been. and i am dead serious.

second of all, this thread has seriously been hijacked. i'm disappointed that both sides had to resort to name calling rather than sticking to an intellectual debate.

I don't think the theme of the thread lends itself to intellectual debate.
However, I agree that people on both sides have gotten a little out of control.

its like that rule: three things not to talk about on the first date

b/c people are so opinionated:

-religion
-politics
-past sex history


i think they should add "affirmative action" to taht list

Quick, look over there!

And yes, if my lips are moving, or my fingers are typing, odds are you shouldn't take what I say seriously.  Ever.

how would i know your fingers are typing?  i don't have a camera in your flat.
Uhuh. Sure you don't.

In addition to not liking whities, she for some reason also hates mixed people.
Even though I think she's engaged to a white guy ??? I don't know. It's way too confusing for me.
