    No, they don't. They encourage people to vote which they might not do if the poll wasn't anonymous.
    I don't care what cowards think

    I think you merely forgot to make the poll non-anonymous

    The only black people mentioned in the novel (that I recall) were from the south and were heading to Mordor when Frodo and Sam saw the oliphant. I forget the name of their race off the top of my head, though.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Actually, I just enjoy that they are good books and the movies are a mostly accurate representation of them. Not everything has to be viewed through a political lens and dissected for it's socioeconomic subplots and meanings. What was the meaning of "The Expendables" pray tell?

    You couldn't tell? Stallone is the son of an Italian immigrant and immigrants are here to save America. Pure liberal garbage.

    And who was the main bad guy "boss"? It was former professional wrestler Steve Austin. And what kind of trunks did Austin wear? Black trunks. Obviously America needs saved from black people. Pure conservative garbage.


    You really ought to pay more attention to the brainwashing subtleties in the movies you watch.

    What? A 5' 6" fellow can't be the world heavyweight boxing champion? Even if he tries really, really hard?
