Kids should be unable to have children until they reach the age of 18.

But they should be framed when they produce bad work.

First-time DUI offenders should get jail time.

Christians already have too much influence on government.

Of 537 elected officials in Washington, there are 43 Jews, 1 Muslim, and not one atheist.

I do not believe in Affirmative Action, I believe in "Best man/woman for the job"

I think reality TV is terrible

I believe in the death penalty. If you kill a man in cold blood & take his life away, you in return deserve to die. Fuck rotting away in prison...Death ASAP.

The public school system is a mess. (ok maybe that's not so unpopular)

The fact that it took 9/11 for most families to actually admit they loved each other and said it once in a while is pitiful

Christmas has turned into complete bullshit thanks to the holiday becoming a liability to exchange expensive gifts to friends/family rather then it's true meaning.

We are a society that spends more time complaining about issues rather then making an effort to change things. All we do is point fingers (usually at Bush)

wow, only one thread for this?

Just about everything I think is unpopular

where to start...

Political correctness and worrying about everyone's "feelilngs" are creating a generation of wussy cry babies that can't handle the reality of life. This extends in so many different directions it is actually hard to cover it all in a post.

*ahem* If you are on Welfare, you do not get to have a television, radio, attend movies, concerts, or theater performances, or own any kind of vehicle. The only food you should be allowed to have is a nourishing but tasteless paste. The government will dole it out to you so that you are only allowed the caloric intake to maintain your weight. Plus you're not allowed to vote. Or breed.

Nice. How exactly should they go out to find work, since they obviously shouldn't be allowed to ride the bus with normal people.

Since they wouldn't own the bus...hello?

I was going to post "The best way to attack an argument is with a straw man." but that seems to be rather popular.

Christians should try witnessing and loving others to bring about change rather than force their beliefs onto the entire nation through imperfect, hypocritical, selfish politicians.


Please note: I believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and am politically active. I just can't stand those who wish to go about enforcing their beliefs on non-believers. God gave us free will... remember?

Hall of fames should be based on merit not stats.

Politicians are far worse than criminals.

Christianity is the root of all evil.

Sobriety is over rated.

Monkeys are smarter than most humans.

The moon landing was fake.

There was a shooter on the grassy knoll.

King Kong is better than Casablanca.

I'm agnostic, borderline atheist (very popular). I'm skeptical of all religions...but I think Christianity is one of the more unlikely ones in the pile.

Reality TV all sucks. Yes, that includes Survivor and American Idol.

America wastes too much time obsessing over sports.

The ability to express an opinion does not automatically mean it's correct or meaningful.


No one is so poor they can't pickup their own yard.


Guns don't make the country safer but they make me personally feel safer.

Well, like last year, I still think teachers are not underpaid unless they're in the type of school where they're afraid of their students.

But also:

I pity rather than hate Angela Yates and other people who just went crazy (as opposed to being truly evil like Susan Smith).

I enjoy listening to Def Leppard more than listening to Led Zepplin.

Now that I'm used to them, crocs are actually attractive even if they make your feet look big.

You can't have too many unpopular opinion polls at dvdtalk.

Infocom games were more fun than the games these young whippersnappers play nowadays.

Watching other people get tazed is kind of boring.
