Default Ten Greatest Americans

The Discovery Channel finished polling the American people on who they thought the Greatest Americans of all time were. Here are the public's final choices:

1) Ronald Reagan
2) Abraham Lincoln
3) Martin Luther King
4) George Washington
5) Benjamin Franklin
6) George W. Bush
7) Bill Clinton
8) Elvis Presley
9) Oprah Winfrey
10) Franklin D. Roosevelt

Now it's YOUR turn to choose your top ten. Mine are as follows (likely to be revised):

1) Ronald Reagan
2) Thomas Jefferson
3) Ben Franklin
4) Dwight D. Eisenhower
5) General Douglas MacArthur
6) General George S. Patton
7) Alexander Hamilton
8) Martin Luther King
9) Henry Ford
10) Thomas Paine

I'm gonna do more thinking about my list... so it's prolly gonna change.

Fuck, thats a depressing list. No wonder were in the shape we are today, the ten greatest Americans and Ronald Reagan wins? No goddamn way is W the 6th greatest American of All time. I suppose its happened then hasnt it? The American Dream has finally died, and this list killed it. It showed how stupid and ignorant people can be. Who the fuck votes for this sort of thing? Jesus Freaks and Klansmen?

Roosevelt helped the economy out of the depression and enforced new acts that would protect the future. I'm slightly surprised that he's so low.

If you think I'm happy with that... you're dead wrong... I just know that anyone more left than Dubya would expand it even faster.

Aww, I wasnt taking a shot at you, but rather, the Nazi's you support.

Yes, Im aware of the fact that a democrat would expand things more.Its just lets not allow the pot to call the kettle black.

My point, Nancy, was this...Between the two parties,each one loses sight of its own failures, while campaigning on the failures of the other. Its the death of all that is holy, when the two parties can run whichever incompetent asshole they want, only to have said asshole to fuck us more in the end...

Well, Helen, I don't support Dubya until people make outrageous statements about nazizm...

I don't like what either party has become. Period.

Thats it, your learning, pretty soon there wont be anything left. Pick up the pieces and try to start over again? I think not, theres nothing left to rebuild her with is there? I dnot know, maybe we could start again...

Its the end of the american century, my friend...Learn to understand that. Life doesnt look good for the refugees in America, here in the post American Century....and only a fool or a whore would admit otherwise.

You're probably sitting there wishing you had a pic of my kids so you could Photoshop them onto something because that's all you can really do.

Sure...you can take a run at numbfuck SC or plainjane Josh or complete moron Alex or can't get out of his own way Boston...but I don't agree with you about Barry and it's "Rueben Droughns this" "weed that" "your kids this" "Look at me and my halo over my head that."

Whatever. First of all, you don't have any depth of knowledge about any of that stuff, so you're just talking out of your ass. Secondly, you wouldn't be saying any of that shit if Barry Bonds wasn't some roided up freak who you're in love with.

It's fucking gay. I have better things to do than deal with someone who can't even debate a point, rather changes the subject again and again to deflect the fact that he's dead wrong. It's what dumbass 6th graders do...


I honestly don't give a fuck about your opinion. Like I told Alex, they're just words on a screen. I can't believe you don't get that concept...but okay.

I mean...you're the kind of guy that thinks if you yell louder than the other person, you will win a debate. And that's not new either...I've pretty much thought that about you from day one...

I didn't want to put it that way, but since you want to press on...

Lame dude. Just lame. I have better shit to do. You probably should too...but I'm betting you don't...

Late.

I wont comment on Reagan... cause you already know how wrong you are there.

I just wanted to point out that those slave owning founding fathers are the guys who set up the end of slavery with the following clause: The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a Tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.

You can't knock them for setting that up.
