    You know, you are likely far more right here than you even know. Who has the problem here though?

I would urge you to read Niall Ferguson's excellent chapter on the interplay between religion and Empire in his book of that title.
    I'm sorry, what was the title? Religion and Empire? I'm a full time student so trust me, my reading is laid out for me till the end of the semester, but I'll keep an eye out for it. Sadly, I'm not doing much more than touching on the history of London as a city, this semester, as far as Britain is concerned.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Was there ever another President this goofy? Even including Jimmy Carter?

What is wrong with you? You can't even let two people have a serious respectful conversation that doesn't directly touch on your OMG OBAMA IS TEH SUX ranting without trying to troll it. What Grant and I were talking has NOTHING to do with Obama or even really the current economic situation. Nothing at all. You, sir, have no respect for other people, no respect for other people's discussions, and no respect for common decency. Please go back to whatever slime infested sewer you crawled out of, and leave the adults alone. You are acting like a disrespectful child whining and throwing a temper tantrum because no one is paying attention to you.

    Also, to address your personal attack about when I get into the "real world", has it ever occurred to you that I might already be there? I moved out a month after my 18th birthday and have been completely independent ever since. Right now I am working, I am thinking about picking up a second job, and I am putting myself through school as a full time student. You, buddy, have no right to make any personal judgements about me.
    This is an open board and anyone can jump in, and in fact it should be encouraged. I'll still naturally respond to those posts directed at me.

    Buddy, I have every right to my opinion and it stands based upon your posts. Congratulations on taking personal responsibility for yourself and for working hard to pay your way through college. Real life experience along with an education will help you in the future. There is no substitute for hard work and education.

    You, however, don't have a clue but it will come with time and experience. Just like your challenges of the data I posted claiming that I made up the numbers. You sure shut up in a hurry when I gave you the link. Hopefully you will learn to research those sites and get actual non partisan data befores spouting your rhetoric.

    I grew up a Democrat, thought I knew it all, just like you, but found out I didn't and learned something new every day. Ronald Reagan gave the American people some great advice when he said, "trust but verify" and that is exactly what I have done. I haven't voted for Democrat since 1976 and it was because I verifed the rhetoric and found it didn't match the results. Hopefully you will do that as well. Good luck to you.
