Political Survey

Postby Patach on Thu Nov 21, 2002 4:26 pm

I'm taking a survey to see what type of political people reads "Final Draft". :)

I will not be doing any voting since this is for the readers, not the creators

WHOA!!! DOWN HERCULES!!

Postby Flabajaba2213 on Mon Nov 25, 2002 5:31 pm

Been a while. OK. I can really relate to what you said about schools. I am a senior, and my high school is mad tight. (not the good tight, but the bad tight. 8)) Anyway...... The school was built for 800 students, we ow hold 1250. Next year is a projected 1340! HOW FUCKED IS THAT!? We have had to reduce our library by 1/2 to build more class rooms, put 35-40+ students in every class, and pay $125 to use the PUBLIC school buses. Whoo. That felt good. All that I'm trying to say is we need another high school, 2 new middle schools, and 1 more elementery school. I am glad that this is my last year.

In other news that nobody really cares about and will probably not read because I am typing this sentence, I WAS ACCEPTED TO COLLEGE!! WHEE!!! Now I can get back to work on whats really important, finishing this year alive. I my town, that is what we all strive for.

Later,
The all-knowing, all-powerful, merciful, magnificent, awesome, talented, handsome, dashing, charming, economically advantaged, vertically gifted, Gods gift to man, and humble......... flabajaba2213

I can't really say what I really am politically...I liked Clinton, but I also liked McCallum. Hell, I'll vote Green party since I agreed with most of their ideas and figured it would be less corrupt anyway.

By the way, I go to private school, I can't really complain about it...despite them constantly charging us money for fundraisers and pizza sales and other crazy things, it's not a bad school.

The public schools are a different story...they passed a guy with a 0.14 GPA because the teachers didn't want to deal with him...

Well, it's after thanksgiving. Hope ya'll had a good one. Never around here. (enter bitching mode) The native americans (no, we can't say "INDIAN" it isn't politically correct) had their own little protests. They protest until the media leaves, then they lam out. They call it their "national day of mourning". The only thing that they have to mourn is that the state won't let them build a casino. Here's the story. The Native American "tribe" want to build a casino on what they say is their ancestral land. Howvere, someone found an artifact during a dig that dates back later than the native americans. The tribe is now fighting this in court. The thing is, if it is proven that they wern't the first inhabitants of the land, then they have no claim to it. (end bitching mode). Everybody is out to get something for nothing. Also, I know that I will get mad flames for this next comment, but some friends, a teacher, and I had a discussion. We came to the conclusion that Canada is not a real country. It can be better classified as a Commonwealth. I will now leave before I get hatemail. :cry:


Bye Ya'll

I haven't heard of that story before. I'm surprised that Native Americans would try to attack archaeological findings, especially since all races and tribes after and before them (before the European invasion) are considered Native American. I'm assuming this group of people are attacking the dig based on them digging a hole on their property (or where they wanted to build the casino). I don't think somebody can actually find a good reason to sue a digging industry just because they don't want to be "discovered" as a synthetic origin to Native Americans.

Not to criticize, but they do have much to mourn about on Thanksgiving. Because the holiday is a tradition of friendship between white man and Indian put into Christian prayer. That definately wasn't the case in real history when Native Americans were forced to adapt Christianity, English and to give up the rights to their own land.

Also, I know that I will get mad flames for this next comment, but some friends, a teacher, and I had a discussion. We came to the conclusion that Canada is not a real country. It can be better classified as a Commonwealth. I will now leave before I get hatemail.


LoL, I do remember that you mentioned this. But isn't a Commonwealth a Nation anyways? That would constitute it as a country, I would think. :)

Of course this is only my opinion. I'm happy that you are welcoming debate here in FD, even if it seems I'll be the only one talking about it :x

If anybody has an opinion, please type :), and vote dammit!

Things that go "boink"

Postby Flabajaba2213 on Mon Dec 02, 2002 6:37 pm

The thing that you have to remember is that this is Massachusettes, things don't have to make sense here. People will try to sue for anything. However, I neglected to state what led up to this predicament. What made this case interesting is that several years ago, the same tribe went to court against a development company that wanted to buy and build a comercial building on the land. The tribe won, on the grounds that Native American relics were found on the site. This was the only reason that the tribe won the case. Since the artifacts were found on site, and that they dated back before the first colonization by the Puritans, the Judge concluded that they were the initial owners of the land.

Don't get me wrong, I agreed with the case ruling. They were there first, so they should keep the land. However, after wining the case the Chief (I think he's called a chief) stated to the press that they would keep the land as it was, stating that it would remain "a window to our heritage" or something like that. This case was ruled about 10 years or so ago. The current case with the casino started 2 years ago. The main reason why the case lasted so long is because Massachusettes has a law against professional gambling facilities. The towns have long opposed gambling on the grounds that almost every town that has had a casino built has had an increase in crime and degradation of the surrounding areas. Every several years, the issue comes up and is voted upon. However, it is always voted down by a substantial margin. Until gambling is legalized, the case will remain in "limbo", so to speak. (end rant)

Thats enough of that. Sorry if I sounded too "meanish"(if Bush can make up words, so can I) in my last post, then don't get me wrong. Believe it or not, I have converted from being to the right of Genghis Kahn to moderate. Thats enough for now, since I need to eat. BYE BYE!!

Yours in hunger,

I'm not sure if I understand what you're saying. Are these casinos being built in Indian Reservations or territory? Indian Reservations have different laws from the rest of the state, I recall. Indian Casinos have been drowning in business lately, mostly because of the shift funding that keeps Native American houses from getting a lot of the money.

Whee.

Postby Flabajaba2213 on Mon Dec 16, 2002 7:33 pm

That thing about the degradation of surrounding areas was as a general rule. About 80% of all towns that have casino's have had a downshift in their surrounding areas. One of the exceptions is Vegas, since they have a lot of security. It dosn't matter if it is an Indian casino or not. This was taken froma general survey. I know, I jump from topic to topic a lot, but it makes sense to me (which dosn't say much). Anyway, thats enough out of me.

You know what I love? Teenage whitebread privelaged morons that think they have a political clue espousing anti-semite bullshit when history is nostalgia for a He-man figure they had when they were younger. To imagine the sorts of social injustice, degradation and extermination that has occured here to be so further degraded by the simple fact that some pampered Mama's boy is "sick of all the bitching" is so beyond my contempt. If "trials and tribulations" are for you getting a date for a prom or into that neat liberal college all your friends think is cool, then you need to sit down and listen a bit more junior. :evil:

Postby Flabajaba2213 on Mon Dec 30, 2002 5:28 am

Down Boy! Just a few random things. I am not liberal, I am moderate/conservative. I prefer wheat to white. I also try not to be racist. This is just my opinion, and I am exercising my rights to express my opinions. You couldn't tell it by looking at me, but I am part Native American, navajo on my mothers side. They believe that since they were cheated several hundred years ago, that they should be paid back over and over again. If we do this for the Native Americans, then we should do it for the African Americans, the Irish, the Japanese, the Chinese, the Russians, the Mexicans, the Jews, the Germans and the everyone else thatI may have forgotten that have been wronged by the American Government over the centuries. Thats enough for that topic. Anyway, CD review time! Linkin Park's CD [REANIMATION] is decent. It has remixes of some favorites, as well as a few new ones.

Finally, the series is coming to a head. I hope that Kristen finds peace in whatever decision she arrives at.
