    Anti-Politics

    For those of us that have noticed the outburst of politcal threads, starting about a year ago, we need to speak out.

    Some of us may enjoy them, but for those who are tired of it, I bring you the "No More Politics" footer.

    For all those who oppose the rash of political, Bush bashing, or Iraq centered threads, I have created the simplistic yet powerful image of anti-politics here at Flashkit.

    For those of us who want to take back the Coffee Lounge, and bring it back to it's mind numbing useless glory, we must unite!

    Perhaps the more this image is used, the stronger our voice will become. Feel free to use it in your own footer (I would appreciate if the majority of you uploaded it to your own server, however).

    Thanks, and goodluck.

    Even if Disney have a legitimate reason, its gonna make them look bad and provide even more publicity for Moore and his causes

    would the politics of dancing or grooving be acceptable?

    I don't quite get this - Disney stops distribution of the film because they might lose tax breaks in Florida, as insulted Georgie's brother is the 'ol governor there, but aren't tax breaks written into the state's books, to be taken advantage of by those who qualify, not arbitrarily handed out (and similarly rescinded) like some type of crony-istic government kickback?

    I don't see hoe Jeb can harm Disney, tax-wise, without making himself look like a Floridian king.

    Floridian King...yeah...there's something to be proud of.

    Disney's not doing so hot these days. They'll release the film. Just stirring up the pot.

    who would have thought a couple of years ago someone could become president of a democracy when they didn't win the most votes in an election ..... ?

    Discussing politics is fine. But when there is too much of it, and there IS too much of it, then it gets out of hand.

    When every other thread gets off track within the first couple pages, well. It's ridiculous.

    Maybe we need another religious battle.

    I propose that we talk about pimps and their affect on modern society.

    I like politics...perhaps I'll make this my footer:

    I really enjoy forgetting. When I first come to a place, I notice all the little details. I notice the way the sky looks. The color of white paper. The way people walk. Doorknobs. Everything. Then I get used to the place and I don't notice those things anymore. So only by forgetting can I see the place again as it really is.

    when i'm "elected" emporer of earth in 2014, if I show up at a warehouse and put on a hardhat, somebody shoot me. Not a head shot either, put it through the gut so I die in pain.

    Now that's what I don't like.

    "anyone but bush". So, as long as it's bush, it has to be better? I'm sure we could be worse off than Bush. But unless you have a true belief in a candidate, then you should atleast be open minded.

    And there we go. No more politics in this thread. Just anti-politics.

    So, how about those Flyers?
