Title: Are you For or Against?
Post by: Tyler on 07 May 2009, 17:16
I am totally for it! I have no idea how you could think otherwise.

Post by: Eris on 07 May 2009, 17:18
What? How can you be for such a terrible thing? It goes against everything good people stand for, like basic human rights!


I think maybe you should leave. You disgust me.

Jon, there's no sitting on the fence with this issue. You have to either be For or Against it.



And I think you know what the right answer is.

Post by: 0bsessions on 07 May 2009, 17:23
I just don't feel there's sufficient evidence to really declare a side one way or another and I think the lot of you are foolish for jumping to such ridiculously conclusive stances with such an evident lack of tangible rationale one way or the other.

Against basic human rights? Hannah are you serious? And man you too danny I would expect better from you. If anything, this is going to revolutionize human rights. It's finally a step in the right direction after all this shit we've been putting up with. I can't see how you could be anything but for this. I just can't comprehend what you people are thinking.

Edit: You too shoggoth on the roof (name?) Oh dear god QC I am disgusted with you.

Brothers, sisters, let us not be filled with such distress and uncouth behavior. It is clear that we all feel very strongly about this extremely important issue. But let us not become so engrossed in it that we forget that fact, that we are all brothers, and can discuss this with honor, respect and civility.

You who are against this, while i feel i must respect your position, and will willingly hear what rational arguments you wish to make, I must say I think you are quite profoundly wrong.

Like, what, are you fuckin' morons or some shit?

It's not about being cool, it's about about being against it, because being for it isn't cool. So everyone who is against it is cool because they aren't trying to be cool; which is, of course, what makes you cool.

We have to look at public opinion here:

for it (http://www.google.no/search?q=%22for+it%22&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a)
against it (http://www.google.no/search?hl=no&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=uzy&q=%22against+it%22&btnG=S%C3%B8k&meta=)


You see - the vast majority of people are for it, and in a true democrazy, that's what counts. Protect our western values, go for it!
Title: Re: Are you For or Against?
Post by: pwhodges on 07 May 2009, 23:50
You really shouldn't allow yourselves to be carried along on a wave of public opinion.  You should gather the evidence and think about it independently, carefully and logically, so that whatever happens in the end you know that you have at least maintained your integrity.  That being said, I am inclined to be for it - action is better than inaction, and change is preferable to stagnation.
Title: Re: Are you For or Against?
Post by: LTK on 08 May 2009, 04:58
This has always been somewhat of a controversial issue. It's very hard for me to pick sides because looking at the past, which I often do, gives us evidence that both for and against could lead to disaster. Although, when you get down to the core meaning of the issue, I have to say that my person is for it, no matter what the consequences may be.

You obviously need to be educated on the matter at hand. Merely debating the issue cannot give you the right to claim of being for. This decision will govern your actions on a daily basis, it will govern the course of your life, it will define your very being! One who does not take action on being for it might as well be against it.

Good sir, I am flabbergasted and appalled at your stance. You have not even taken into consideration the social and moral consequences that will occur if people don't support it. It figures that people like you aren't concerned with the plight for our social and geo-political infrastructure, and are only concerned with the contents of your back pocket.

Gentlemen, I implore you. Don't turn a blind eye to the truth. Stand for it, and let this world change for the better, for our children, and our children's children.
