You conservatards will be proud.
« on: November 03, 2014, 02:29:19 pm »
First of all, if you won't take the 3 1/2 minutes to watch this video, then kindly go huff a petri dish of Ebola and tard a different thread.  TIA.



At my school, we have video announcements every day.  Today, this video was included on the announcements for obvious reasons.  I suppose with MTV and such it appealed to a bunch of the kids.

First of all, only about 5% of our population is 18, so they can't vote anyway.  But I get wanting to get them excited about current events.  Problem is, if you watch the video, EVERY one of the individuals who says they are voting for something important to them advocates a liberal position. 

Obviously, when it comes to social issues I'm as liberal as they come...but it's not my job to beat kids over the head with my opinion - my job is to present them with as fair & balanced a viewpoint as I can. (And that's a REAL 'fair & balanced', not the Fox News variety.)  It wouldn't have been hard for MTV to include a kid saying "I'm voting to protect the rights of the unborn" or "I'm voting so I can keep my guns" or other such conservative shtick. 

Anyways, I made a complaint to my administrator about it - he said he hadn't watched announcements today but would check it out.

Well said.  Though you could have added "I'm voting to control federal spending" or "I'm voting for personal privacy."

I always hated "Rock the Vote" because it only seemed to show up during Presidential years, never midterms or off years (like when Virginia and New Jersey elect governors the year AFTER the presidential cycle), or even special elections.  And surprise surprise, most of the people starring in the ad you posted didn't vote in the last midterm cycle.

Celebrities are less likely to vote in midterm elections, just like us!

Rock The Vote released a public service announcement last month with a parody of Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What" that featured public figures who explained why they planned to vote in the midterm elections, but according to public records, a number of them didn't vote in the last midterm election.

At least five who appeared in the PSA "Girls" actress Lena Dunham, comedian Whoopi Goldberg, "Orange is the New Black" actress Natasha Lyonne, "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills" star E.J. Johnson, and actor Darren Criss did not vote in the last midterm, records from Los Angeles County and New York City show.

And yes, I did watch the video.

I'm guessing the tech teacher who puts it together just threw the thing on there without thinking about it, I doubt it was a LIBERAL CONSPIRACY like Tudo will come here and argue.

But my argument would be that if you put ANYTHING political on a school medium, it needs to be objective.

There is an argument to be made that your plan would violate the first amendment (you are talking about a public GOVERNMENT school after all) but I agree with you in adding voices from the other side.

That disgustingly fat hipster bitch with the hideous short blonde bob haircut said something about turning out for "reproductive rights"?  What does that mean?  Is somebody out there forcing her to have unprotected uncontraceptive sex and get pregnant when she doesn't want to?  Man, that sucks.

This is what you mean by "boat raced?"

Don't worry about it.    Obozo doesn't need the other 2 branches of government...   He will accomplish the rest of his "fundamentally changing US America" with executive orders.

This president has gotten more accomplished than any president since FDR....

The problem is it all sucks.

I think Obama won something like 93% of the black vote in 2012.  That's getting boatraced.

Yes, he did.  Are you trying to make some kind of point?
