Never thought of PPR as a super-progressive forum (as any thread about feminism will attest to), but then again I'm an actual social democrat so I am left of most American reform liberals.

In the US, the UCC is the United Church of Christ, and it's a very liberal Protestant denomination. Is your UCC similar?

A lot of rural California's economy is under the table, so it looks more impoverished than it actually is. Well, the informal sector isn't taxed, so that makes it even less likely that middle income hardworking rural folk are subsidizing those spendthrift city slickers with their hard earned tax do...

Some people were proposing breaking up California into six states just because a lot of California is rural and sick of how LA, San Fran, etc. are ripping through government money.


Does rural California not realize that the role urban centres play as economic engines?!

Why didn't you become a spook Raptor? I sometimes wonder if Raptor is really some sort of undercover Chinese or North Korean agent. He's so right wing he seems such a try-hard. I think Raptor more or less admitted to trolling once (essentially, doing stuff to get a rise out of "liberals"). And we a...

My favorite thing about Wal-Mart is the DVD trough. It's just a giant pit full of discount DVD's. Like, there's no way to look at what they have for sale without abandoning your dignity. There's no "cool" way to burrow into a vat of cheap DVD's. You can get better at Amazon.com and all you need to ...
