  1. Sometimes its easy to pick out certain ones. In the sci-fi series one, I could always find an Alien or Robbie the Robot cause they were super heavy. Same with the TMNT ones, all I wanted was Krang in his robot suit. The Game of Thrones ones, I easily found the dragons cause when you shake the box, they don't move much due to large wings. With the anime ones, that's gonna be rough though.
  2. I've seen mystery mini's go for anywhere from 5.98 to 7.98 I believe. Depends on where you get 'em from.
  3. Didn't see anything anywhere else, mods feel free to move and/or delete if I'm wrong. Anyone into these lil buggers?? I've gotten hooked on them and the Funko Pop! Figures.
  4. No, but you can marry a woman. And under that stupid logic, then a woman can marry a woman. Problem solved? And as I stated, a large majority of the time, the entire basis against homosexuals is RELIGION. Furthermore, proving the stupidity of the argument that I always see; WHY IS IT ALWAYS ABOUT SEX WITH YOU PEOPLE? Homosexuals want to marry because they are IN LOVE. Also being homosexual isn't a choice. To say it is is akin to saying the universe revolves around the Earth, or that the Holocaust didn't happen. Legally there is no intelligent or LEGAL reason to deny homosexuals the right to marry. And eventually they will be given that right, once all the majority of moronic bigoted senior citizens die out, and the only "majority" of your type left are now the minority. You don't have to accept the whole thing, but you do NOT have the right to deny them equality. You can whine about not wanting to be called a "bigot" all you want, but if it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, its a duck. You cannot give any intelligent reason why they can't marry. Its really sad that you guys were brought up in such a moronic lifestyle to think such a way, and I really do feel sorry for you. I hope that your kids (if you have any) don't grow up with such a small mind. And again like I said, you should all be ashamed of yourselves for treating human beings as you do, simply because of your (more than likely) religious objections to homosexuality.
  5. No not exactly. Gays do not have the right to apply. They are automatically denied on the basis of their homosexuality. That is not equal. It is not a special right. Just because you have some off-kilter reasoning that makes sense only to you to deny them marriage, does not make it ok to deny it. Negative. Common sense dictates that you don't withhold something from a group of people when theres no intelligent reason to withhold it. Common sense dictates that you treat your fellow human being with respect, and stop relegating them to being seen as second-class citizens. Emotions (and usually religion) guide any thinking against same-sex marriage. Yeah, people who want to treat homosexuals as inhuman abominations to nature. As Mongoose said "If straight people are legally allowed to marry, and gay people are legally allowed to marry, then no local government can vote no to that. A law banning gay marriage would make straight people and gay people unequal. Regardless whether marriage is a right or not, treating gays differently is unequal. Unequal = Unconstitutional." You can try to slap it around whether its a right or not. But when it comes down to it, it is simply wrong to treat our fellow human beings with such disdain as to deny them such a simple thing. And to try and rationalize why you think it is "OK" to treat them this way, no matter how many friends/family you say you have that are homosexual, it is still a hateful and bigoted thing to do, because, like I said, you are telling them that you think they are second-class citizens and not worthy of being held equal in the eyes of the law, and you should all be ashamed of yourselves. Mind you, I don't post alot on here because I've seen the stances, and I know that arguing with you is akin to arguing with a brick wall. It is still sad that in this day and age, people can try to rationalize hatred, and think its ok to treat others this way.
  6. The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage - Newsweek
  7. I walk in on my wife sleeping with another man and I kill him. It's only a "hate crime" if he's Mexican. So a while back when a black man beat a Rabbi with an aluminum baseball bat, while shouting slurs, (mind you, I had read stories saying there were and were not things said during the attack, so I don't know,) but this was during a time of tension between Jewish and Black community in NJ, and you're telling me that man wasn't beaten almost to death b/c he was Jewish? That's not a hate crime?
  8. Now I'll agree with you that the people messing with the cross in the Mojave are on the same level of stupid as other thieves/vandals. But I have to ask, whats wrong with that billboard? It's simply stating that people can be good people w/o religion. Its not anywhere near as spiteful or insulting as some of the other atheist billboards that were shown. I don't think being rude helps either sides cause at all, mocking or insulting others is no way to "convert" if you will, followers. (To note, while I don't believe in any sort of Deity, I'm not so arrogant as to say I'm right. I'm agnostic, I fully believe it is possible there is a God, but, as it stands I don't think there is. I just don't think people should be constantly insulting/attacking/forcing their beliefs on others. And yes, in the sparse times I've commented on things here I've been more on the childish side of posting, and for that I apologize. But I think people just need to leave each other alone. Live and let live.)
  9. Ok for 1: I thought we were discussing the here and the now, and more to the point, billboards and signs of the like; 2: We could both spend all week finding quotes from both sides using disparaging remarks about the other from books/interviews/etc. It is common knowledge that when one side doesn't like the other sides beliefs, they will say mean things. That is not the issue here. The issue is how each side reacts to it. Now mind you, I could be wrong, but I've not come across any stories where pro-god signs/billboards have been stolen/defaced in an obvious way by atheists.
  10. Roseanne Barr, anyone?? Perez Hilton???? You wanna start the petitions, or shall I? If we get down to work NOW we can have 'em stricken from sight before Christmas.... I'm on it and I'm adding one more... Micheal Moore! Oooh! This sounds like it could turn into something amusing. I nominate Rose O'Donnel, Keanu Reeves, and Tom Cruise! And this lady: OMG Or this lady : Ew.
  11. Atheists = Murderers ? Anti-American? Again? Fear Stupid Etc... All I could fine at the moment. And this is not pointing out the local church signs that constantly have disparaging remarks about non-believers, under a thin veil of trying to be witty.
  12. Ok, so its not ok to do things insulting to people who believe in God. Have the believers in God ever thought that alot of the stuff they do/put out in public are insulting to others??
  13. Bonkers candy. I remember it fondly from my childhood. Was my favorite. Sadly it disappeared.
  14. I still don't get the logic behind making what might be one of the more requested characters for DCU Con only. They used the lame excuse with Lobo that he's "not appropriate for retail" even though they had stated that DCU is a "collectors line." Then they're going to only sell a tiny limited amount online. So hardly anyone will get one at a normal price (oh, wait, mattys selling them, it wont be a normal price, it'll be a disgustingly inflated price), and then the actual fans will probably lose out on getting it due to the 'tarded scalpers. I guarantee after matty reads "sold out" on Plas, you'll see tons of them pop up on Ebay for $100 a pop. Bah. Bah humbug. Yes, yes I am bitter and ranty.
  15. I'm still a little confused. So Plas is going to be like Lobo, convention only???? (and matty)
  16. Oh great. K-Mart. So now if we want to buy them first we have to pay $20 a figure?? K-Mart is a dirty crap store, and they overcharge for toys. Why in the blue hell would anyone shop there? Good job Mattel.
  17. And a question, why does it matter that it was deemed illegal?? Is it hindering your ability to pray?? Does it bring you any sort of pain??? Does it perhaps hurt your butt???
  18. No, my proof that it's illegal is based on the RULING of the judge, since its their JOB to interpret the law, since, after all, that what they specialize in and went to school for. In my view of the case law, government involvement in prayer may be consistent with the establishment clause when the government's conduct serves a significant secular purpose and is not a "call for religious action on the part of citizens." No, its not "forcing" but it is making a special comment as government telling people they should pray. Says the man with the fancy law degree. It goes beyond mere "acknowledgment" of religion because its sole purpose is to encourage all citizens to engage in prayer, an inherently religious exercise that serves no secular function in this context. So you would have no problem if the gov't enacted a National Day of Mock Christianity? Or a National Day of Atheism?? Perhaps a National Day of Non-Prayer, where the gov't encourges everyone to NOT pray. No? Then again, the law is illegal, and you seem to not understand why, because it offends your belief system. Perhaps you'd also be ok if the government also made a National Hug-a-Gay day? I mean after all, they're not forcing you to. "Waaaaah, the mean librul judges don't believe what I do and makes laws based on my belief, waaaah." Sorry, but conservative judges and politicans do this all the time. Again, its why the Nat'l Day of Prayer was created, and its why "In God We Trust" is on our money. RELIGIOUS "conservative" judges/politicans putting their religion in government. In this instance, the government has taken sides on a matter that must be left to individual conscience. No, but by saying its a National Day of Prayer, its SAYING that they think everyone should. And its also actively leaving out those who do not. Why can't it be called National Day of Silent Reflection? Why does it ALWAYS have to be religion?? Why do you always want to leave the non-religous out? Do you hate them that much? Do you not understand what "equality" is? "When the government associates one set of religious beliefs with the state and identifies nonadherents as outsiders... Obiviously someone was feeling put-out and offended. Much as you would feel if the gov't made a National Day of Don't Pray. And I'm sure for most Christians the revoking of the National Day of Prayer was akin to being beaten and crucified. *rolls eyes* ...it encroaches upon the individual's decision about whether and how to worship." Not forcing, but heavily suggesting, which the government SHOULD NOT BE DOING. Again, feel free to use your massive law degree to go change it. What? You don't have one? But you say you still know more than a judge whos job it is to do this?? WOW. I'm impressed.
  19. Even if it is an "endorsement" of a particular religion, where does it say the government can't "endorse" religion? They can endorse religion all they want, they just can't make a law that says YOU have to follow it. Christianity has been "endorsed" by our government since the United States was first founded...it's only been over the last 10-15 years that people have decided the first amendment had been being interpreted wrong over the last 200 years, including by the very people who wrote the friggin' thing. "LAW respecting an ESTABLISHMENT of religion." The government is creating no LAW by having a national day of prayer. They aren't ESTABLISHING a religion that the American people are forced to follow. Again, show me how they are creating a LAW that is ESTABLISHING a religion by recognizing a national day of prayer. ""In my view of the case law, government involvement in prayer may be consistent with the establishment clause when the government's conduct serves a significant secular purpose and is not a "call for religious action on the part of citizens." McCreary County, Kentucky v. American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky, 545 U.S. 844, 877 (2005). Unfortunately, (section) 119 cannot meet that test. It goes beyond mere "acknowledgment" of religion because its sole purpose is to encourage all citizens to engage in prayer, an inherently religious exercise that serves no secular function in this context. In this instance, the government has taken sides on a matter that must be left to individual conscience. "When the government associates one set of religious beliefs with the state and identifies nonadherents as outsiders, it encroaches upon the individual's decision about whether and how to worship." McCreary County, 545 U.S. at 883 (O'Connor, J., concurring). Accordingly, I conclude that (section) 119 violates the establishment clause."" Right there. Again. From the Judge. It goes beyond "acknowledgement." And Christianity has been "endorsed" by some political figures because they were Christian, and, as is evident by things like the Nat'l Day of Prayer, where they are trying to force religion on others.
  20. Illegal? Show me where this says it's illegal to have a National Prayer day: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." How is having a prayer day, that the government recognizes, creating a law that establishes a religion? They aren't telling you that YOU personally have to recognize it. They aren't forcing it down your throat. Too many people read the first amendment as saying "The United States government cannot recognize religion under any circumstances." Truth of the matter is, it was wrote into the constitution to keep government from becoming corrupt under church doctrine, as it had in England. In other words, the church is to have no power over decisions the government makes, and the government can't force you to practice religion if you don't want to, not that the government should be void of recognizing the religion that the country was founded on and that the majority of it's citizens still practice. What you're failing to recognize in all of this, is that many of the people in these groups want to see religion abolished from our country. If they didn't, they wouldn't put so much effort into these types of things. They want a secular society, because they view religion as being too restrictive for their own purposes, and are going out of their way to make it happen. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion" National Prayer Day is an endoresement of a particular religion. I don't care what groups are taking part in it NOW. When it was created, it was referring to one particular religion. The government CANNOT endorse a particular religion. Furthermore, a Judge has already ruled that its illegal, because it is. Completely offset from all this, theres a Natl' Peanut Butter and Jelly day? LOL. My youngest will be thrilled.
  21. "Butthurt"? Ironic you would make that distinction, and then go on to make an anti-(Christian) God rant, like somebody that's been seriously "butthurt" by it? @firedevil@ Let's have a funfilled look at all the "DAY OF's" (some NAT'L) in just April alone.... I'm sure there's more than PLENTY here for you (in just our current month) to take up a crusade againt, whine and cry about having it removed and to get all "butthurt" over....if they leave it as is? Wow. good job avoiding the facts there. Also, nowhere was I making a "I am 'butthurt' and an anti-God rant." But good job jumping to your own silly conclusions. I could care less what you believe, fact is the Nat'l Day of Prayer was illegal. The gov't should not have had it. Simple as that.
  22. I'm certain he wasn't speaking about Allah, or Zeus. From the Judge ruling over the case atm: It was illegal. Stop getting all butthurt over it. Not even looking at the fact that the entire exercise has its roots pointing at one particular religion. You want to pray as a group on one day? Fine, but the gov't needs no hand in it. Nat'l Day of Prayer is just another outdated illegal relic from the 50s, much like putting "In God We Trust" on money. (which again, from the 50s, was put there referencing the Christian God to difference the US from the communists)
