    Default Intelligent Politics Discussion Thread

    As the title suggests, this thread has been created for intelligent discussion on politics. By intelligent, I mean people should try to look at things with a little more perspective. You know, not let bias overrun the facts. Let's try to keep it rational in here.

    SubBass obviously need not apply.

    I would like to discuss the collapse of bear sterns with you.....Its troubling that the fed is now allowing financial institutions to go directly to it for its borrowing...frightening.

    "Perhaps the Fed's most significant move over the weekend was the creation of a new program to give emergency loans directly to the 20 largest so-called "primary dealers." These are investment banks that do business directly with the Fed and which purchase the majority of Treasury securities."

    Intelligent politics?

    Where are the jumbo shrimp, military intelligence, quantum leap, air field, compassionate conservative, and freezer burn threads?

    It could also be a decent move in the end. it remains to be seen. The fact that the fed was so willing to do this means they're more optimistic about the short term. It does however kind of bear the faint whiff of an old school mafia-style bust-out.

    I vacillate between being angry that taxpayers are bearing the risk for the stupid decisions of a few, and resignation that the idiots need help in order to benefit the whole.

    I'd imagine people are worried about glorifying cigarette use and/or giving up the progress made on cigarette laws and taxes. Not that it will do either, but people can be pretty dumb sometimes.

    michelle told obama that he could only run for presidency after he quit smoking.
    and he already quit smoking a while ago. why do you people assume that he still smokes?

    srsly, We've got a former cokehead in office right now and people are being retarded about a few cigarettes.

    Being able to quit smoking demonstrates character anyway IMO.

    Is this thread going to be domestic material or can we discuss international news/politics? I tried to make a Russia/Nato thread but that was a miserable failure.

    Sure, we can discuss International issues. I was thinking mostly election stuff, but it would be nice to try to incorporate things outside of that area, as well.
