    And the difference between the Green Party and the Republicrats is?

  2. Cutty Sark Says:

    Marxism.

  3. Joe Says:

    I don’t think there is a a Republican Party in New Zealand, but gambling may be one of the differences. Consider that Newt Gingrich recently received one million dollars from Las Vegas Sands Corp. for “patriotic education” and Frank Fahrenkopf, current co-chairman of the Commission on Presidential Debates and former chairman of the Republican Party, is also the currently president and CEO of the American Gaming Association.

    Cutty – which is not marxist?

  5. Andy Says:

    BAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! I told you all that Greens were really not that pro-freedom when it comes to gambling. The only political party that really supports the right to gamble is the Libertarian Party.

  6. Trent Hill Says:

    Not neccesarily true Andy. Alot of Republicans support the right to gamble.

  7. Cutty Sark Says:

    Mike:

    Republicans: Fascist
    Greens: Marxist
    Democrats: Fabian Socialist

    Andy:

    Double or nothing.

  8. Mike N. Says:

    Cutty – all means to the same end. There is no difference.

  9. Cutty Sark Says:

    All roads lead to Rome, as they said in the old days.

    Gamble with other people’s lives, that is.

    Just not the ones that were elected by the majority of Republicans…

    Yeah, it was Republicans that were responsible for the internet poker ban. Also, when I was in Nebraska last year it was Republicans who were leading the fight against the gambling ballot initiatives.

  13. Trent Hill Says:

    Actually Mike, that precisely right.

    Alot of Reagan-Republicans support gambling rights. Also, alot of libertarian-Republicans (no. Not like Wayne Allyn Root. Although im sure he would support the easing of gambling laws too).

    “Alot” is not a fucking word. Please stop exposing your red neck.

  15. Cutty Sark Says:

    Dude, don’t be so pissy about missing the space key. Typos – we all make ‘em.

    I’m a brown redneck (brownneck?), personally. What the fuck is a redneck except a white person who works outdoors?

    An ignorant, bigoted person who classifies people by class and color?

  16. Trent Hill Says:

    Cutty, I definetly didn’t expect defense in this form, but thanks. You literally took the words out of my mouth.

    UA, you are again exposing your ignorance by denouncing “rednecks” for racism with a racist term of your own. Sort of like saying “Jews are so racist. The kikes never quit making fun of other races.” or “White people are basically spoiled, the crackers need to learn what a hard day’s work is.”

    As for saying “alot”

    “Fucking” isn’t really an adjective. Stop using it that way.
