I'd rather have kids talking about this stuff and trying to make sense of it, rather than ignoring it. Whether that should be done in an RP forum is a separate issue.

I am 26 so not really a kid.

Although I was told Thursday because I was young I had to be a card carrying member of OWS. Poor guy had trouble understanding a younger person like me wouldn't be dying to support them.

And some old guys do... It's stupid to say someone has any kind of political view because of their age, race, up-bringing, religion, financial status, etc...

I think both sides make that mistake.

Your 12 pack and voucher for a month of free cable are available at the front counter.

You will need Id for the 12 pack though.

If you really want to get intense, I support aspects of both the Tea Party and OWS.

There's a good medication for that.



Believe what you believe, and speak out for it... but probably not on a railfanning forum.

It will be challenged and overturned. It's unfortunate it has to go that route...

I hope. I think there's a good chance. And if our Supreme Court can read the obvious words in the Constitution, they will. But no guarantees, unfortunately.
