21 more questions CNN should ask the democrats

Weeks ago I published an article called “21 questions CNN should asked the democrats.” http://tygrrrrexpress.com/2007/06/21-questions-cnn-should-ask-the-democrats/

Attached are another 21 questions for Hillary, Obama, Edwards, and the remaining candidates, assuming reality has not set in for them as of the time of the questions.

1) You have all explicitly or implicitly stated that religious Christians have hijacked religion. Is this more or less serious than Islamofacists hijacking airplanes, and why?

2) Are you all willing to unequivocally state that if elected, you will not try to restore the Fairness Doctrine?

3) Are you willing to unequivocally state that if elected, you will continue the policy of not taxing internet commerce?

4) Given that adult stem cell research has led to cures for over 70 diseases and embryonic stem cell research has led to no cures at all, wouldn’t it make more sense to fund adult stem cell research instead?

5) Given that when we left Vietnam the killing fields began, are you concerned that pulling out of Iraq prematurely could lead to millions of murdered Iraqis?

6) A man is currently suing his dry cleaners for 54 million dollars over a pair of pants. Given your support from trial lawyers, how can you be expected to pursue meaningful legal reform, especially in the area of medical malpractice?

7) You have all said that you are ok with raising taxes on the rich so that they pay their fair share. What dollar amount constitutes someone being rich?

8)Given that you all support equal rights for everybody, why are you against gay marriage? Isn’t that discrimination?

9) Would you pardon Scooter Libby? Do you believe his conviction justifies the independent counsel statute?

10) Some credible scientists claim that global warming exists, but that humans do not cause it. Other scientists say it does not exist at all. What makes the scientists who say humans cause global warming to be correct without question?

11) France has been using nuclear power without incident. Why should America not follow the example of the French and build more nuclear power plants?

12) If we capture Osama Bin Laden and find out that he knows of an imminent attack already in the works, would you support torturing him to stop the attack? Which specific coercive interrogation techniques count as torture to you, and which do not?

13) President Bush has been compared by some people on the left to Adolf Hitler. What do you plan to do to restore civility and end the politics of personal destruction?

14) If newspapers or other media reveal confidential troop movements, resulting in the death of our troops, under what scenario would you favor criminal sanctions? Also do you feel that shield laws for journalists and tenure for teachers leads to lower quality performances, given that no other industries have such protections?

15) Are we a Christian nation? If not, should Christmas no longer be a national holiday? Also, should Jews and Muslims each get one national holiday per year, such as Yom Kippur for Jews and the first or last day of Ramadan for Muslims?

16) Should America apologize for slavery, and what should be done in terms of reparations? Isn’t an apology without reparations a meaningless gesture?

17) Given that you are all pro-choice on abortion because it is a woman’s body, should women have the legal right to be prostitutes or take drugs? Why or why not?

18) The GOP traditionally fares better than the democrats among white voters and male voters. Why do the democrats have such a gender gap with men, and what can be done to win back white voters?

19) The GOP has been seen for decades as stronger on foreign policy, especially after 9/11. What can you offer the American people on national security matters that your predecessors in the democratic party failed to do?

20) What role will Jimmy Carter play in a new democratic administration? What about Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton?

21) Corporations are incorporating more and more in red states like Nevada to avoid blue state tax burdens. Are you concerned that raising corporate taxes could cause more corporations to incorporate overseas in places like Bermuda, destroying American jobs?

As I said last time, these questions will most likely never be asked, because that would involve CNN removing itself as an appendage of the democratic party. I would state which appendage, but given that we are talking about democrats, donkeys is as donkeys does.

    “why are you against gay marriage?”

    That question seems a bit hypocritical, since 1) Almost all people who are NOT against gay marriage are Democrats; and 2) using your logic anyone who isn’t in favor of gay marriage cannot claim to be in favor of equal rights without being a hypocrite.

  2. Skul says:

    And their reply to any……*crickets chirping*

  3. I posted this on your initial blog entry, but then realized belatedly that you may night see this if you don’t check your archives (a crime of which I am admittedly guilty!). I found your blog through your posting on Solomonia’s website, and liked it a great deal! So, I have added you to my blogroll, and would be honoured if you would do me the return favour of stopping by mine if/when you get the chance!

    More to the point, what gives Democrats the right to bang on about global warming unless they support nuclear power?

    Otherwise they are just engaging in luddite politics, or the politics of negationism.

    -> Here’s a problem. Now stop flushing your toilet, and put on a woolly jumper.

    God give me strength!

  5. Daniel K says:

    Item #10 – You say the cigarettes cause cancer, yet some scientists disagree. While it’s true they work for the tobacco industry, they ARE scientists. Why can’t we put up the Marlboro vending machine in my school?

    Item #8 – so you’re NOT for equal rights?

    Item #15 – no, we aren’t. The other questions are therefore baseless.

    Item #1 – you can’t really “implicitly state” something.

    Item #2 – what is it with you guys and the fairness doctrine? You keep whining that the media has a liberal bias, and a solution is right there within your grasp! Don’t be shy!

    Item #4 – Abstinence programs for teens have a far worse success rate, and we’re pouring billions into them.

  6. micky says:

    I cant answer #8 because it would clash with the statements I’m about to make on your upcoming “faith and politics” special.

  7. Bud says:

    21 mostly dumb questions, mostly- while you are at, why don’t you ask the Jews to “get over” the holocaust? God, I don’t even know why I still read the tripe and substandard writing on this blog.

  8. Bud says:

    By the way, the “killing fields” was not in Vietnam. At least get your facts straight!

  9. Skul says:

    Hey Bud. Go read the post again. He did not say the fields were in Nam. He said the killing fields started when we LEFT Nam. He just did not specify Cambodia as the location. Have a nice day.

  10. Another Great List!………………steve

  11. Victor Charlie Romeo says:

    So he thinks the killing fields in Cambodia are a direct consequence of the US disengaging a direct enemy of those who carried out the killing fields atrocities (and who eventually put an end to it themselves, once they had recovered from our invasion)?

    I’m glad that’s sorted.

    P.S. Which Governments supported the Khmer Rouge, the perpetrators of the killing fields, even after they were forced from power by the Vietnamese? Which country conducted bombing campaigns in Cambodia in order to help the Khmer Rouge come to power?

    You, sir, are a moran of the highest order.

  12. Skul says:

    VCR, you Sir are an idiot. Please by all means, offer some proof to you’re statements.
    “So he thinks the killing fields in Cambodia are a direct consequence of the US disengaging” .. Yes, that is true.

    You “P.S. is equaly misleading and false. Prove it.

    Your lack of intelect and reasoning is astounding.

    Now, have a nice day troll.

  13. Skul says:

    It appears VCR doesn’t want to play. Must be a “bad track”. You lose big time VCR. Stinking, lying, troll.

  14. Al Sharpton says:

    I read that the majority of women favor hilary.

  15. Brian Harris says:

    This list of questions is exactly the reason Democrats made what I think is a terrible decision not to debate on Fox. Nonetheless, you want to know why and this is why. These questions aren’t evenhanded. They’re not even close. They’re questions asked from a conservative perspective. If your point is that CNN asks liberally-biased questions, then point taken. If this is a genuine suggestion, then you’re as bad as the “liberal media” you excoriate.

  16. Gerry Anetrini says:

    I would really like to know why democrats aren’t even considering the impeachment of President Bush. Does he have some sort of well kept secret? The mayor of Salt Lake City recently expressed his desire for impeachment, but every time this issue is mentioned it peters out like a deflating balloon. There is certainly more than enough ammunition against him, I’ve watched numerous “experts” on TV say that there are certainly grounds for impeachment proceedings, so can someone please tell me why it isn’t being pursued? Thanks.
