Much ado about nothing.

They are using his book because he just won one of the most heated presidential elections in history. Though some people in this fora think it should be given a rest, B and N are trying to capitalize off of it.

Capitalism at it's finest. Isn't that what this country is about? Making the fast buck?

I voted for Obama but I don't agree with B&N asking for a charitable donation in the form of buying a book and then singling out a specific book, regardless of who/what the book is about. If the goal is to provide a new book to the poor/homeless, then they should probably be open to all titles and genres being purchased and donated. And if they're specifically targeting poor/homeless kids, then shouldn't they at least offer an age appropriate book? I mean, how many kids really want an Obama biography....or any biography about anyone other than athletes and celebrities?

Either B&N is making a pretty obscene political gesture, or (as fjep mentioned) they're just using it as a money making scam. In either case, the motive is definitely more selfish than charitable.

Well, bending over or other uncomfortable positions might seem like a large part of your experience, but in fact the discomfort exaggerates the actual time you're in that position.

In an ideal world, you go about upright, as does everyone. This doesn't preclude the fact that we have predilections that we're born with, and then we're instilled with certain values in our upbringing, and later we may encounter alternative views.

Our varied experiences should complement one another. When you meet with another couple, you probably hope there's some new experience about to unfold. The more you try to control it, or restrain it, the less you stand to gain from it.

The title of this thread has retained its relevance.

" I bend over backwards to be fair..."

See, this should explain pretty clearly what you're doing wrong. If your standard position was fair, you wouldn't have to "bend over backwards" to get there.

" I think Carter was a horrendous President..."

Let's see, if you were age 3 to 7 when Carter was Prez, you must have read about him. What history was that? and what was horrendous about his presidency?

Introspection tells you that you complain almost as much about Repubs as about Dems? Even if that's so, you're complaining almost as much about the bad guys as you do about the good guys. What's funny about that scenario?

When you learn to distinguish the good from the bad -- not the same as short term vs long term profits -- you'll enjoy life, not just the exploitation of it.

It's what I find most frustrating of all.

I complain about Republicans almost as much as I do Democrats, but not only do I get little credit for it, my complaints about Republicans are simply parroted back to me as if I'm somehow making their point about how Republicans suck.

that I will state that most politicians of both parties are in it for themselves, care little about the actual success of anything they push for and instead only care for the political success (i.e. them getting re-elected, or it reflecting well on their party, no matter how it actually pans out), and the person will reply in such a way where they act like I'm making their point for them about how corrupt Republicans are, always ignoring the other side of the coin.

A (highly) simplified version of how it usually goes is: Me: Most politicians, Reps and Dems alike, suck Miscreant: I agree with you VA. Reps suck.

Exactly VA. There is a few in here that are obsessed with vilifying one party or the other. They provide little to no substance, they post drivel simply to get a rise out of someone, anyone. While a cry for attention, it kills the desire to actually discuss anything at all. I posted about it several times, even have a thread about it. It's just frustrating. I've blocked most of those who have no ability to discuss anything in an intelligent fashion. Some of them I'm convinced are just senile old man, some suffering from dementia, some are just blind party followers without any understanding why they are supporting the said party. Regardless of the reason, I have zero desire to read their low IQ cries for attention. And will not engage anyone else in such stupidity.

The problem with what you describe is that we're not all going agree on which Presidents are fuckups and which ones aren't. I think Carter was a horrendous President, but I have no issues with things named for him.

As usual, I bend over backwards to be fair, and you use it for another "Republicans suck" jab. You are simply incapable of doing otherwise. It's absolutely boring to attempt to debate with someone like that. Let me know if you ever say anything other than one of your 25 or so variants of "Republicans suck".
