Keep modern values? I'm out
@Cabbage Merchant, Exactly! I brought the moonshine
@Cabbage Merchant, just vote Republican and you'll go back to the good ole days, presumably meaning slavery and keeping women barefoot and pregnant.
@DoctorThrob, you do realize your Republican Party is the one that ended slavery.
@WilfredMott, And you do realize that Republicans and Democrats have completely switches roles in the past 50 years?
@Faptain, this is not what I intended
@WilfredMott, what Faptain said. Bigotry and patriarchy makes up the modern Republican Party.
@DoctorThrob, I don't know why you were down voted because you're completely right..
@DoctorThrob, he says in a closed minded and bigotted fashion. BTW I'm not a Repub I'm Liberatarian, just incase you wanted to attack me for being a "bigot" or "sheep". I believe in legalization of marijuana, gay marriage, and blah blah blah but I also believe that Democrats don't know how to handle money, cause well....they don't.
@jklyt1, close minded and bigoted is how you read into it. Since we're discussing backgrounds, I'm probably one of the only people on this app who would directly benefit from Republican policies since I'm in the 1%, monetarily. However, I'd rather pay more in taxes than live in a religious oligarchy, which is what the Tea Party (the public face of the modern Republican Party) would have us do if it were up to them.
@Aftershock05, because everyone on this app is of an age where they still follow their parents' ideals.
@Faptain, they have kind of switched side indeed, but you know why? Well there was a huge push by the Democratic party to get black people to vote for them to quote LBJ "they're getting upity and have something they never had before" so their plan was to take a false stance of social equality in order to get black people voting blue to quote LBJ again "We'll have those n****rs voting Democrat for the next 100 years"
So ya that's why all you Dems consider yourselves to be a politicaly correct social equality party, because a while back a bunch of racists wanted the black vote so they could stay in office.
@DoctorThrob, no you are not in the 1% you would have to be INSANELY rich to be in the one percent. The distibution of welath in America doesn't just go 1% and then the other 99%. But ya the Democratic party wants people to believe it does cause they (as well as the Repubs) already get money from a lot of the peopke in the 1% and the Dems know that if they can convince anyone who's not giving super rich that they need to be against the super rich then they'll vote for them.
And ya you can attack the Tea Party for being religious zealots but the 99%ers are fascists so I mean take your pick. Or you know you could just not be a sheep to a mjor cable network and actually think.
@jklyt1, quoting Ronald Kessler? Really? Hardly an unbiased historian there. Also, the 1% cutoff in the US is $380k a year. So, yeah....
@Cabbage Merchant, dad?
@DoctorThrob, fun fact. If you make 20,000 a year, you are among the top 1% of the world.
@Cabbage Merchant, haters gonna hate. I'm with you!
@jklyt1, you think the 99% are fascists?? Wtf dude the 1% are the fascists the 99% want all the money to be distributed more evenly. My god you are a higher form of stupid
@DoctorThrob, aaaaaah no I was quotinf Lyndon B. Johnson. You know the guy who actually said the quote not the one who exposed him for saying it. But also talking being in the 1% you would have to have accumulated roughly 9 million dollars to be in the 1% for America. It's about how much you have, not how much you make.
@Aftershock05, well facsism is about the government having a slight hand in industry to make sure money is spread they want, so ya the 99% are fascists but I suppose you're right they are a lot more like communists than fascists. So the 99% are commis.
@jklyt1, Kessler is the ONLY source of that quote. He is the one who falsely said Obama attended sermons against the white man years back. The source matters. As to your 9 million number....you're still not making your case.
@jklyt1, what's wrong with sharing money I do not understand why that's a bad thing? Who cares what name you call us if the 1% is going to control most of the money in our country and using lies like "we're stimulating the economy" to just gain more money so they can be richer and the poor can be poorer then I don't want to live here anymore. I don't know how you're a libertarian if you believe that the 1% should control everything leaving everyone else with barely anythings, there's nothing fair of free about that.
@Aftershock05, ok tell that to all the North Koreans or Chinese who would love to be in your position. Only way to live comfortably in Commusim is to rule the country. This world is not a place where you can just ask nicely for something and expect ut to be given. If you want something you have to fight and work hard for it. And if you don't want to and would rather just be chill than do what I do, start smoking weed. Also what do you mean how can I be a Liberatrian? They're practically more fiscally conservative than republicans.
@jklyt1, libertarian's are basically fiscally conservative and liberal on most social policies. That's the best comparison to date I've heard.
@PrestonRX, and that is what I am. I believe two dudes should be able to smoke weed on their honeymoon but I also believe we don't need so much taxation and pointless spending.
@Giant Cabbage, out of all this conflict I accidentally created I'm glad that I can trust! I remember you when you were just a little leaf in the soil!
@Cabbage Merchant, and I remember when our kart home was destroyed and I rolled away and started a new life!
@jklyt1, I'm personally conservative, which seems to have become taboo, but I don't really care. I have my own personal social beliefs but I strongly believe that the states should vote on their own policies to suit the people's wants, and when it would come to my state, I'd vote my mind, which is conservative. A lot of issues aren't a federal issues. They are state issues. Plus the federal govt shouldn't have any say in marriage, gay or straight. It isn't in the constitution so I don't understand how it became a federal issue.
@PrestonRX, I completely agree the federal government has over stepped it's bounds in a lot of social issues. Honestly I really just don't care what people do that's why I'm socially liberal.
@jklyt1, I have my personal, religious beliefs, Oh Nooo taboo, but there are on some things that need restrictions for protection. Most people say no to that. That people should do what they want. Most of that is about drugs, but then again, what would happen if we removed all speed limits? I believe in freedoms but not anarchy. Weed is a special subject for another day because, IMO there are many implications for it, yet people would abuse it even more. But then again I believe in removing all warning labels and let stupidity sort itself out, but I guess that makes me a walking contradiction. Haha
@Cabbage Merchant, modern values meaning same sex marriage and equal rights.
@PrestonRX, I completely understand where you're coming from, I grew up in a Christian family and still consider myself one but I am also bisexual and see weed as a drug comparable to alcohol. And we all know how prohibition of alcohol went.
@jklyt1, I don't look at it like alcohol and prohibition. Really I believe that if you slip up somewhere, like alcohol, then people will eventually push the limits even further, like weed today, and who knows what else in the future. That's Human nature. Given an inch and take a mile. We see how much we can push. In other words, the slippery slope saying. Most people laugh at others who use the saying, but it is true.
@Giant Cabbage, I'm happy for you! My cart has been destroyed several times since then. That arrow boy always seems to be around...
@PrestonRX, eeehhhh but marijuana is a natural drug it's not produced like meth, cocaine, or anything like that.
@jklyt1, but, in my opinion, that doesn't forward the argument of legalization. I believe it should be a controlled substance because people aren't responsible enough to handle it. I mean look. Every year they have a day to say "fvck the police" and smoke it. Now I'm not the most responsible person but that's stupid. There are good implications to it if researched and studied more and deeper, but people give it a bad image, both people who slander it for no reason and those mentioned above who go all yolo out. It is a mature substance that can only be handled maturely.
@PrestonRX, that's why you put restrictions on it. In Washington and Colorado you have to be 21 you buy or consume it and you can only have so much on your person.
@jklyt1, again I don't have enough faith in people to let that slide. Sure same age as alcohol but it isn't the same as it. There are practical uses for it. 21 says nothing about maturity.
@jklyt1, my phone bugged out. But that's why I believe it should be left up to professionals to say who needs it and who gets it. Sure there will always be corruption but it best suits it so the people who need it get it. A controlled substance like oxycodon, mind the spelling, and the like.
@PrestonRX, well it's all avout personal responsibility and weed is a mild enough substance that I think it should be legalized.
@jklyt1, I personally see it as a powerful substance that has medical practicality and industrial practicality. I don't believe a full out legalization is the way to go. I believe baby steps and have it used for practicality before recreational use should even be considered. Alcohol is mild enough to be legal yet people still abuse it and some of those people cause MVAs. I'm not saying to make alcohol illegal because the cats out of the bag but that doesn't mean we should make everything else legal too. My personal beliefs here. That's like saying abortion, which I see as 100% murder, is legal so we should make speeding or this or that legal too. It's irresponsible.
@PrestonRX, well abortion is more of a flat out moral issue and there are times where the baby isn't going to make it past birth and abortion is the only way to save the mother from a painful death. Also autobahns in Germany have no speed limit and they actually handle it very well. But anyways weed is less damaging to you than alcohol and the effects don't last as long. You gotta understand though I live in Houston where practically everyone and their mother already smokes weed so ya....hahaha
@jklyt1, I live in TN in a small county where a good number of people do, and I even wrote a paper in English 1010/1020 about it and it's benefits. Plus I am working towards being a doctor so I see it as a medicine/drug to be handled carefully. Because it can do damage, sure less damage than other things but still no justification. It can help with blood sugar and diabetics, and it'd be cheaper than insulin, assuming it worked the same way as insulin. I'm not sure of the mechanics. Just know that it lowers blood sugar which makes you hungry. And since it lowers BS, it can also help with cancer in a way I was surprised when I heard of it. A low sugar diet to basically starve the cancer cells rapidly. That's how I see it. A medicine that needs to be taken seriously as any other medicine.
@Cabbage Merchant, to clarify, I did not mean I want the 1920 morals of segregation and inequality. I was only poking fun at our modern morals.
@Cabbage Merchant, take me with you
@Cabbage Merchant, I assume you meant you'd rather remove swag yolo beiber and driving like an ass?
@Destroyer of Food,
@Cabbage Merchant, *speaks out* "So how about the weather?"
@Nice Guy Noah, *grabs lawn chair and pop corn* what'd I miss?
@jklyt1, Eyyy another person from Houston.
@CriTiKa1, ayyyy! Am I right though? Even the people you would never expect there is a good chance they have smoked at least once in the time they lived in Houston hahaha. What part you live in?
@jklyt1, I went to a Catholic high school and even there just about everyone smoked weed. I think out of my group of friends I had, I was the only one that hasn't tried it yet. I live by Hobby airport. You?
@mazemarble, yes! Thank you!
@jklyt1, I am also a libertarian, and unfortunately I arrived late to this party. But you did an outstanding job defending your point of view with facts and direct quotes, and I applaud you. However, as you know, you can't convince the sheeple of anything unless you're on a major news network. *sigh* Oh well, the next great die off is long overdue, maybe then it will all turn around? Anyway, outstanding reasoning sir or ma'am
@goC4yourself, it's all good fellow Libertarian sir or ma'm. Is it just me or have you noticed too that Democrats aren't very good at having normal civil conversations. They always have to resort to name calling it's ridiculous. I mean Republicans may not shut up about religion but at least they act nice.
@jklyt1, Well, an intelligent conversation would mean a chance for them to realize that their point of view is, in fact, wrong or in some way flawed as no view is perfect, and we simply cannot have that. Therefore, it is simpler for one to resort to insults and to change what we say around to where we sound like monsters, such is the gay debate unfortunately. If everyone would learn to shut their damn mouths and listen to each point of view before they arguing starts, maybe we could get somewhere. We can dream at least.
We are very close to ww3..
@High Summoner Braska, I was thinking the same thing... O_o
@High Summoner Braska, they r so dumb, hitler's regime wasn't even in ww1. They should really pick up a book sometime
@Dickwad, ikr? I study history in my free time and its definitely WW2
@Dickwad, but he was gaining control around that time right? Like after ww1?
Alright men there is 10 days left of July and any one of those days war could break out, so get your toilet paper ready to fight back ifunny and end the funny war
@SnipingPickles, where is the original pictures guy we can't have reposted during the war.
@SnipingPickles, were you in that crazy KiK chat?
@SnipingPickles, well with the Russian thing and the airplane.
@SnipingPickles, With the way the whole Ukranian thing is playing out, I wouldn't be surprised...
@CaptainSwordsman, Russia is already at war with Ukraine. But to add to that, there's isreal and palastine as well.
@SnipingPickles, War is already here, what with all this crap in Gaza and Israel.
@SnipingPickles, Israel did invade Gaza...
@K1ngPCH, gaza fired rockets nonstop even when Israel agreed to a ceasefire. If someone shot at me, better believe im not going to trade shots. Im going to give them every shot i got till they stop shooting.
@FightingIntheWarRoom, Israel pushed Palestinians out of their land, basically putting them in ghettos, banning them from visiting their holy sites in Jerusalem, and blame all of their problems on Palestinians. Israel has fired at them many times before, slowly taking their land. Damn right I'm going to try and take my freedom and my land back if I were Palestine.
I'm just gonna point out the Israel - Gaza stuff that's happening, it's July 2014 and that's going on, history is indeed repeating itself
@FightingIntheWarRoom, Israel has basically waged war on Palestine many times since WWII and Palestine gets all of the blame put on them for it. It's like if Canada took over America and then got mad at us for fighting back. Besides the only reason America sides with them is because we need an alliance in that region and we can't risk losing it. It's sickening to me. At least most if the rest of the world has humanity and protests against Israel.
@FightingIntheWarRoom, although I will admit, even if Palestine stopped Israel wouldn't. And if Israel stopped Palestine wouldn't. At least Palestine has a legitimate reason to fight.
@SnipingPickles, i know many people. They use ifunny. Im ready for this,..
@SnipingPickles, if there is a war this month can it be on the 29th? Cause my birthday is the 28th and I have plans
@SnipingPickles, Guys, I hate to say it, (please don't hate me) but I don't think the people of ifunny even know we exist
@Mastermist, no I don't have kik why what happened
It's time for who will start ww3
Russia or Israel?
@Pharaoh, my support is with Israel.
@Pharaoh, if Russia goes rogue, were ALL f*cked!
If history is repeating itself does that mean that a ship sank in 1812,1712,1612... and if so was there a war two years later??? #food_4_thought
@16Squirells, Technically, ships were sunk during the war of 1812...
@ExtremelyIndecisive, and the other years??
@16Squirells, alot of ships, or boats sunk while being unknown
@Carnival Cruise Ship, but was it to the magnitude of that of the titanic??? And the costa concordia???
@Carnival Cruise Ship, there were single ships that sank but that was because it was the means of transport and if that was the deffinition of a "calamity" then by that logic car accidents are "sinking ships"
@16Squirells, mmmmmmmno. Alot of smaller ships sink in the African oceans, but it's not really reported. That one ferry boat that sank in the Vietnam region was because it had 2x the weight limit (human error) and a lot of people drowned
@16Squirells, exactly, not all of them are reported on tv. The ocean is bigger then roads though and the primary reason for going under is from the waves. You could be 3 miles off the coast of Florida and sink for no reason and with no radio or nearby visual it could go unnoticed
@Carnival Cruise Ship, point taken... But someone will always lose a loved one and therefore report it, from there its the media that choses wherether it should or shouldnt be aired
@16Squirells, but i think our arguement is redundent because we are arguing the same point. All that i was saying initially was that people are taking a tragic coincidence and trying to make sence of it (as humans do). No one wants another WW, no one wants another hitler, all im saying is that people should be careful what they wish for and let coincidences be coincidences.
@16Squirells, indeed indeed. Social media has gone far and should really stay out of a lot of things, like the case when a child died in a hot car. A petition was started to release the father, but more was to the story. The previous wars were determined with the number of bombs and communists, what will the next be...
@Carnival Cruise Ship, a button(or a few buttons, depending on the movies we watch)
I really hope WWIII is going to happen this month. Anybody else or am I just a sociopath.
@The Vigilante, there's the whole thing with Ukraine and the Malaysia flight that got shot down. Then again, the US also shot down a civilian flight and nothing happened
@Kangaroo Jacked, and the Israel/Gaza Strip stuff..I say we all just take over everywhere.....@The Vigilante you and me both might be sociopaths..
@The Vigilante, We can move to Canada and we'll be safe.
Well Ukraine is a powder keg right now all Russia has to do is invade
Well World War I began on July 28th 1914...we have a week to prepare men...
Let's see if Soviet Russia will rise again...
*queues the Isrealites*
We still got time to start a war! Common Israel and the Ukraine! Up the anty!
Post-2020, I wonder if we’ll reach WW3 soon.
Phew I'm in the clear
Greeting from August 21st, 2020. Things are not okay.
@Jyggalag, all hope is lost..
Wow this did not age well
@myrajane92, The finest of milks
Anyone else come access this post in the randoms? If only we knew how crazy 2020 would start the ‘20s
EBOLAAAAAAAAAAA IN JULY 2014 -gasp-
Completely unrelated to the picture, but I just found out that my boyfriend uses ifunny instead of funny pics and I'm seriously reconsidering our relationship...
I love jazz
IF YALL SAY WHERE YALL FROM 1 MORE TIME
Well I'm moving to Switzerland.
And the great depression
The 100 year anniversary for WWI was a few weeks ago
The Costa Concordia was diverted onto a dangerous course by a false Italian Captain that I would love to make sink to the deepest part of the ocean
Watch your back when your bar starts getting flooded by different European nationalities.
With the way things are going down in Ukraine and Gaza... Ww3 might happen
Did u hear that they're building a ship called Titanic 2? It's going to be similar to the original and the route is going to be almost the same as well (don't quote me on the last parts, i don't quite remember everything. Look it up)
@Pred, did you hear..... that's been news ever since 2010!! Also yes it is going to be like the original, but it won't be used as an ice breaker depending on the nose, in other news no cold weather. Not saying there's the same ice today as 100 years ago
@Carnival Cruise Ship, sorry, i didn't see it once in the news (maybe because i don't live in the us). But thanks for the further info, appreciate it :)
@Pred, I hope my previous comment didn't sound mean...ship related stuff is kinda all I'm really needed for
@Carnival Cruise Ship, no worries man, it's all good
Yes, we shall be home before the leaves fall from the trees...
...this frightens me deeply
21 July 2014 #21July2014
I was just talking about this picture earlier today. Coincidence? I think not!
I've already heard music from the 2020's! Its called Time Machine by SpekrFreks. It's actually really cool
I just started round two four pics back. Does that count?
