Celebrities and Politics Sep. 2nd, 2008 @ 10:14 pm
Wow, this community hasn't been used in almost two years!

Anyway, this is mainly just my curiosity because I don't think I know enough about the subject. But what do you guys think about celebrities and their voice about politics. I saw and article today stating that Anne Hathaway was going to campaign for Obama despite her breakup or whatever (OMG! That's so cool...um okay). But do you think celebrities should be able to influence people in how they vote?

Also an unrelated question, but people are being urged to vote so much now a days, but if voting is a right, isn't also someone's right not to vote? Is it right or fair to guilt someone into voting?

Family... Sep. 11th, 2006 @ 08:05 am
I don't know if this can be considered a debate, but I was just wondering, what is a family, what should it be made up of, and what's the most important component in a group of people to be considered a family?

The Smoking Ban Jun. 28th, 2006 @ 04:20 am
First off, quick admin note: If you know of anyone who might be interested in this community, feel free to tell them! Advertise in your LJ, etc. I'd like to see this place be more active but that won't happen unless we get more members.
And if there's something you're passionate about that you'd like to discuss, don't be afraid to post it here! Any and all topics are just fine.

Anywho, figured I'd stir things up a bit because I'm sad seeing this place devoid of discussion for so long. This one's for Wes.

It's somewhat recent news and something incredibly relevant to Californians like myself, but is still an issue that can be discussed by people throughout the world. Recently, a ban was passed on public smoking in a city very near my hometown. Here is the law (it's a pdf so you'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader or browser support to read it): http://www.cityofcalabasas.com/pdf/agendas/council/2006/021506/item2-O2006-217.pdf

What are your opinions? Are you for or against this new law? How do you feel about smoking bans in general? I'll post my own views on this in a reply to the entry.

Evolution? Jan. 29th, 2006 @ 01:34 pm
Okay...I've been waiting to post a thread here until we got a larger member base so we could actually have a wide range of opinions...but our member count hasn't actually grown in a while, and I'm in the mood for debate, so I'm going to launch the first post. I've been debating the subject of evolution with people on DA, and discovered it is extremely frustrating and useless since they respond with things like, "Just to let you know, I really don't care what evolutionists say. I didn't even bother reading the link," or "I don't know how it turned out that way. I wasn't there. It's pointless to ask a question no one knows the answer to," when I come up with an argument that they can't defend.

So I come here in the hopes we can actually have some intelligent discussion on the subject. So. Evolution. Or evolution vs. creationism/intelligent design, if you will. Discuss.
