A lot of websites allow any size but have software that automatically reduces it for those of us who are not so computer literate - and note not everyone even HAS Photoshop. The minimum size my camera can even make is 250kb.

It's not true that agnosticism is a "middle ground" before theism and atheism. Here's a link with a good explanation:

Note I have no respect whatsoever for the people running that site, but in this case they got things right.

She also doesn't believe global warming to be true.

She's a right wing extremist. I don't know where to find the links but she definitely doesn't believe evolution true - and wants abortion illegal even in cases of rape/incest or where it could endanger the health - but not life - of the mother. Basically she's a female version of George W Bush.

You know, agnostic and atheist aren't the same thing. You are correct, I was assuming that some would not be able differentiate the two. Atheists say "There is definitely no god." Agnostics will say "There may or may not be a god, but this is ultimately unknowable." This is false. You're confusing ...

Patriotism tends to be more about liking your country and being proud of it - Nationalism is more about thinking it is better than any other country.

And just starve? Edit: Sorry, that wasn't very fair of me. I do think we'd be better off without these tactics, though. The human race survived long before there were businesses. If you don't like what businesses have to offer, then don't buy. Grow or pick your own. ruveyn Individuals didn't usuall...

I find it hard to find pics below about 100kb. I don't have the computer skills to do that changing stuff.

Nationalism was a big reason for the First World War - a pretty direct cause of not only the Second World War, but also the modern problems in the Middle East and the ones in the Balkans in the 1990s.

WTF is AGism? Patriotism can be good, but Nationalism is bad. The thing that gets me are the idiots when you criticize anything the US government says reply "well why don't you move to (insert name of especially unpleasant country to live in.)" No crap, the US is a better place to live than Iraq or ...

raise tariffs on imports and exports. I'd like to see megacorp CEOs cut down to size as well. Raising tariffs on exports would be an incredibly bad idea - however raising them on imports from countries where labor is incredibly cheap would help save/create jobs here. I think a very good idea would ...

In terms of the gap between rich and poor, the US is actually closer to the 3rd world than it is to other Western countries.

Difference between CEO's and average workers(supposedly middle class) in some countries:

Britain: 24:1
France: 15:1
Sweden 13:1
US 475:1

I would say they should change it so if someone retires with a large ammount of money and/or a method of good income outside SS they shouldn't get it - and there should also be a minimum, livable ammount for those who never made much money for whatever reason (like someone who becomes totally disabl...
