    posted a message on Why do people like heavy metal?
    Some people have an affinity for that which is rejected by most society, don't ask me why. But yeah, metal doesn't really hold a lot of value musically.

    posted a message on What's your top 5 favorite music artists?
    I see a disturbing lack of disco and dance pop. I'll correct that;

    Ace of Base
    Earth, Wind, and Fire
    Bee Gees
    Village People
    The O'Jays

    I don't see how disco ever went out of style. Best stuff ever.

    posted a message on How do you write the date?
    I usually just write the date out, like May 2, 2014, 'cause I'm one of those people who still has to count from January to determine what number month it is. But when I do write it just with numbers it's month, day, year, as that's what's standard in the US, being shorthand for the written out version.

    posted a message on Heart vs. Mind
    Why the black and white? It's irrational to choose only the heart and it's, well, heartless to choose only the mind. You have to find a healthy balance, and that balance often shifts depending on the situation.

    posted a message on Domestic Spending vs. Military Spending
    You do know that the US spends more per student than any other nation in the world, right? This isn't an issue of lack of funding for education at all.
    Quote from CosmicSpore

    It all comes down to this.

    The US government does not want people to be educated. They make greater profits for themselves when people are stupid, ignorant, and their schools are under-funded. They remain loyal and obedient to the government when they do not know or understand anything outside of what they are being told to believe.

    Except that that's not true at all. Better educated publics consistently provide higher GDPs. Bettering education is seen as one of the best ways to boost economic activity in the long term, the problem isn't some sort of conspiracy trying to keep the American public stupid(and for the record, it has one of the best educated publics of any nation), it's just that the execution and certain ineffective policies are keeping it from being all that it could.

    Education is funded by property taxes, that's why bad neighborhoods have bad schools and good ones have good schools. Many schools in the US receive excess funding, as is the case with my high school. This is also one of the contributing factors to the United States having poor social mobility.

    It seems like y'all just want to blame the US for everything.

    posted a message on Liberalism & Conservatism(?) Question
    Of course that's not an accurate depiction of American liberalism. In a general sense Liberalism leans toward social responsibility while Conservatism leads to individual responsibility. One might be better than the other in certain cases and there very often isn't one that's correct, as both have positives and negatives.
