Pratt County
stumbled across this while trying to discredit Wells.
Apparently in Dec 2000, Pratt County made room for ID in their science curriculum. Not only that, a critic of Wells wrote a letter to the Pratt Tribune.
too funny.

Re: THE END IS NEAR!!!
what a load of crap.
He thinks the dollar will fall by february because the interest payments will reach over 2 trillion dollars? We, the citizens, own most of the debt. Those things called bonds.
Anyhow, a currency exchange wouldn't even make a lot of us instantly destitute. Brazil changed their currency, which was experiencing hyper-inflation in the early 90s, without too much trouble.
Another fun point--the dollar is strengthening in the midst of this crisis. There are essentially no gold-backed currencies today. The ones that don't float are pegged to the dollar generally.
Great for a laugh, until you realize people will take this seriously and then hurt themselves.

Well, it seems that Buz's thread is devolving into the ravings of badly-defining conservatives and pot-humor. But this takes the cake:
quote:
This logic is also why germans are so gruff, why italians talk a lot, why brits are shits, the irish spoiling for fights, the swedes so cold, and the danes impossible to understand (no, seriously. Listen to them sometime: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-mOy8VUEBk).
And since you're in the netherlands, you're obviously in hell or something since you sit lower than anybody else, so you're doubly messed up.

To which Huntard replies:

While this is true in a general sense, I live in the province of Limburg, which is the highest province we have
  —huntard
I honestly don't think I'll stop laughing about this until the weekend.
To make it all the better, one of our resident canadians, Dr. Jones*, illuminated this previously unknown aspect of SecDef Gates:
quote:
this move obviously exposes Gates as a double secret stealth muslim who has weaseled his way into the job in order to hand over the US and Israel to the muslim hordes.
  —Doc Jones*
Ah, to long for the days of serious political discussion!
*since he's not posting, I'll say it for him: Not an actual doctor.

Re: A message for Christianity
All hail the power of Mjllnir!
Not that it did much good for Thor when he went fishing for the world-serpent, or, for that matter, against Jrmungandr...

1) Pajamas TV didn't even get the map of North America right. They put Canada as part of USA.
No, they got the map right. The manifestist's* wet dream is to have canada (and mexico?) as part of the US. This is just simply fulfillment of that dream.
I just didn't know pajamas tv was a bunch of manifestists.
*believers in the manifest destiny of the US, best summed up as this:
"... the historical belief that the United States is destined, even divinely ordained,[1] to expand across the North American continent, from the Atlantic seaboard to the Pacific Ocean. Sometimes...interpreted so widely as to include the eventual absorption of all North America..."
Manifest destiny - Wikipedia (sorry to kill the humor with that)
