Liberals and conservatives--light questions

1. Who has the better sense of humor? Or are both sides
equally humorless?
2. It's said in general, when liberals get in trouble, it's because
of sex and when conservatives get in trouble, it's because of
money. Do you agree?
3. Do conservative musicians make crappy music?
4. Do liberal filmmakers make boring movies?
5. Was anybody actually for John Kerry?
6. Did Ashcroft covering the naked breast of a work of art
protect our morality? Or was he worried about an FCC
violation?
7. Should we open up a Ten Commandments convention to
add amendments? And how much of a majority do we need to
end a filibuster?
8. Is George Bush a sexy Republican? (Oops, does that belong
in another thread?)
9. Should liberals or conservatives hold the key to the locked
box? And when we open it up, will it be like Al Capone's
vault?
10. If there is an afterlife, will there be politics?

Re: Liberals and conservatives--light questions

WELL LIBERALS HAVE THE MAJORITY OF ENTERTAINERS...


2. It's said in general, when liberals get in trouble, it's because of sex and when conservatives get in trouble, it's because of money. Do you agree?
ABSOLUTELY NOT.

3. Do conservative musicians make crappy music?
FOR THE MOST PART YES. CAN'T THINK OF ONE CONSERVATIVE MUSICIAN THAT I LISTEN TO.

4. Do liberal filmmakers make boring movies?
AS OPPOSED TO ALL THOSE CONSERVATIVE FILMMAKERS?

5. Was anybody actually for John Kerry?
SOME.
6. Did Ashcroft covering the naked breast of a work of art protect our morality? Or was he worried about an FCC violation?
NO HE'S JUST AN ASS.

7. Should we open up a Ten Commandments convention to add amendments? And how much of a majority do we need to end a filibuster?
WHY WOULD WE NEED AMMENDMENTS, PEOPLE DON'T FOLLOW THE TEN WE HAVE NOW.
8. Is George Bush a sexy Republican? (Oops, does that belong
in another thread?)
ABSOLUTELY NOT, NOT ONE THING SEXY ABOUT THE MAN.

9. Should liberals or conservatives hold the key to the locked box? And when we open it up, will it be like Al Capone's vault?

10. If there is an afterlife, will there be politics?

IF SO COUNT ME OUT.

Take the best conservative comedians and put them against the best liberal comedians. I can't really make that call. I think they're both capable of being both humorous and humorless.

2. It's said in general, when liberals get in trouble, it's because
of sex and when conservatives get in trouble, it's because of
money. Do you agree?
No. I'm more attracted to sex than money, but I'm no liberal. Although one could argue that Nixon fell in the wallet trap and Clinton fell in the sex trap.

3. Do conservative musicians make crappy music?
Depends on which conservatives you're talking about. I'm not into Toby Keith, but the "conservative music" I listen to every so often can entertain me.

4. Do liberal filmmakers make boring movies?
If you mean F9/11-style docs, I'd say yes. If you mean films such as The Fast and The Furious (to name any random movie), I would say no.

5. Was anybody actually for John Kerry?
I think he would've made a halfway decent president, but he wouldn't have represented me on a number of key issues. I did not vote for him, to clarify.

6. Did Ashcroft covering the naked breast of a work of art
protect our morality? Or was he worried about an FCC
violation?
I think it was just funny. Whether he realizes it or not, he has quite a sense of humor.

7. Should we open up a Ten Commandments convention to
add amendments? And how much of a majority do we need to
end a filibuster?
Some can be forced upon society, and are universally accepted (thou shall not kill, steal, etc...), but some would be between God and the individual (covet your neighbor's possessions, etc). I find it to be a pretty grainy idea, and I don't mean it particularly in a good way.

8. Is George Bush a sexy Republican? (Oops, does that belong
in another thread?)
From what I've heard from females:
"Bush is hot!" (2000 election, in comparison to Al Gore)
"Gore is better looking than Kerry." (2004 post-election)

I don't think he's a bad-looking guy, especially if Laura fell for him.

9. Should liberals or conservatives hold the key to the locked
box? And when we open it up, will it be like Al Capone's
vault?
I don't really care either way.

10. If there is an afterlife, will there be politics?
No, that's the beauty of it.

Both sides have “hot points” but I find liberals tend to be “offended” first.

2. It's said in general, when liberals get in trouble, it's because of sex and when conservatives get in trouble, it's because of money. Do you agree?

Both sides get in trouble when they are selfish.

3. Do conservative musicians make crappy music?

The music sucks at the extremes on either end.

4. Do liberal filmmakers make boring movies?

Only when their desire to preach surpasses their desire to make a good movie.

5. Was anybody actually for John Kerry?

Only those who would profit from his election.

6. Did Ashcroft covering the naked breast of a work of art protect our morality? Or was he worried about an FCC violation?

Yes, we are too fragile to handle classic works of art. Perhaps he can team up with the people who decide which words we can use.

7. Should we open up a Ten Commandments convention to add amendments? And how much of a majority do we need to end a filibuster?

I think God can override any filibuster we can muster.

8. Is George Bush a sexy Republican? (Oops, does that belong in another thread?)

Well, duh.

9. Should liberals or conservatives hold the key to the locked box? And when we open it up, will it be like Al Capone's vault?

Excellent call – it will be dry and dusty no matter who hold the “lock box”.

10. If there is an afterlife, will there be politics?

God has no room for a second party.

Re: Liberals and conservatives--light questions

1. Who has the better sense of humor? Or are both sides

I think both sides have their funny people and their not-so-funny people.
2. It's said in general, when liberals get in trouble, it's because
of sex and when conservatives get in trouble, it's because of
money. Do you agree?
In some cases, that's true, but then again, not every conservative is money-hungry and a prude, nor is every liberal sex-crazed and careful with their money.
3. Do conservative musicians make crappy music? I'd have to admit that most of the musicians I listen to are ones who I'd agree with politically. But I have heard the occasional song from some more conservative artists, and there's been some songs from them I don't mind. Besides, I've heard some songs from liberal artists that I think suck like nothing else, so...
4. Do liberal filmmakers make boring movies? Not all of them, no.
5. Was anybody actually for John Kerry? He wasn't my first choice, no. But I just felt that out of the two, he would've been able to handle things better.
6. Did Ashcroft covering the naked breast of a work of art
protect our morality? Or was he worried about an FCC
violation?
Who knows-I think it was a stupid act on his part regardless.
7. Should we open up a Ten Commandments convention to
add amendments? And how much of a majority do we need to
end a filibuster?
I rather like the answer BVS gave. As for the filibuster...hell if I know.
8. Is George Bush a sexy Republican? (Oops, does that belong
in another thread?)
The words "George Bush" and "sexy" should never be in the same sentence. Seriously, I'm trying to keep my dinner down.
9. Should liberals or conservatives hold the key to the locked
box? And when we open it up, will it be like Al Capone's
vault?
Locked box? .
10. If there is an afterlife, will there be politics? Nah, I don't think so-I'd like to think that everyone will have gotten over any differences by then. Not to mention, if there is an afterlife, we'll all know what it's like when we get there, so that would take out the religious battles that happen here in this world regarding that topic, as there'd be no need to fight over who's right anymore, and that'd be quite nice.
