FOUR FOR FRIDAY

Q1 - Crime: Is there a crime, which if it wasn't illegal, you would gladly commit?

Q2 - Immigration: According to recent figures, the conflict in Iraq has forced over 2,000,000 Iraqi citizens to fee the country. Most are stuck in limbo in neighboring countries like Syria and Jordan, while a few (up to 12,000 for the year 2008) are allowed to seek asylum here in the United States. Given our government and military's actions in Iraq, do you think we should open our boarders to more Iraqi refugees or is 12,000 enough?

Q3 - Donations: Have you ever donated money to a presidential candidate? If so, looking back on your donation, do you think it was money well spent? Related: Have you donated--or do you plan on donating--money to someone running for the Presidency this time around?

Q4 - Keys: How many keys are on your keychain, and do you know what all of them are for?

1- In Alabama, if three or more people are sitting on a bed without shoes on, it's an illegal orgy... I think I could go for something like that.

2- Never thought about it in those terms before, but now that it's pointed out, it sure seems like we ought to invite a few more over.

3- Never have, never will... but if you want to help an underdog, check this guy out... www.frankmooreforpresident08.com

4- 7, deadbolt and regular door lock for home, mail key, car key, 2 keys to bike locks (neither of which I still own), and a cash box key that doesn't work as well as a paper clip.

1. buy land and break all the building codes by building a smurf village

2. queue neil diamond's they come to america - 12,000 is not enough, boat em over and we'll have a kabab and coke

3. no never, If there was any one of them that didn't look or act like a polished for the media political/businessman soothsaying boring assed rich mf'er, then maybe I'd do some legwork for their cause.

4. mmm..yeah er car, door, door #2, unknown door, to a lock that had been lost for several years

1. I'd probably opt out of paying for taxes. Or transport real beer into Utah.

2. I was unaware we were harboring fugitives. I find it funny that we are thinking of instigating big brother national ID's to keep our country 'safe' and we are shipping people over. I wonder what 'difficult' test we give them to prove they aren't terrorists?

Are you a Terrorist Quiz:
Q1: Who won American Idol in 2004. True Americans watch Idol...

Q2: Larry the Cable Guy's catch phrase is...

3. I never have and I doubt I ever will. Although, I was very tempted to get one of those sweet Obama shirts with his face on them.

4. 4 keys. I'm a minimalist when it comes to keys. Car, Front Door, Mailbox, Office Door. My motorcycle key is on a separate ring. I had a girlfriend once who had more keychains then keys. I have a theory that the more keychains a woman has, the higher maintenance she is. It's just a theory at this point, I have no scientific facts to back it up. Just personal experience.

1. Crime: I'd probably shoot a few people. It's been a long time since I practiced my skills on moving targets. Seriously though, I'd pick up a P-90 submachine gun. It's the only rifle I've found that is truly usable one-armed.

2. Immigration: Well crap, I completely flunked Josh's terrorist quiz! I say bring the smartest ones over and have them build a californium bomb which, as any high school chemistry student knows, would be 100 times more powerful than a hydrogen bomb!

3. Donations: Never a candidate, never a party. I have yet to see any of them spend money wisely. However, if Bo Gritz ever tried to run again, I might start up a fund to bribe him to drop out.

4. Keys: Four. Car, house, filing cabinet, and a padlock which I don't know the current location of. The last two keys are really only there to give me an excuse to even have a keyring. I'd feel so empty without the jingle of keys in my pocket.

1. There is a crime I already gladly commit--all the time: speeding. I also pay little heed to the dotted lines that tell me when I can enter or exit the HOV lane.

2. That's a tough call. I think we should be open to more.

3. No. No.

4. 6 keys: Car, Scooter, House, Office, Mailbox, Parents' House.

1. I have been advised by my legal representation to abstain from answering this question...

2. I seem to remember a certain poem greeting everyone entering NY Harbor which I always thought (hoped) all Americans believed:

"Give me your tired, your poor,your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."

3. Yes I have and yes I do believe it makes a difference.

4. 5 keys: Car, Apartment Entrance, Home, Mailbox, Office.

I played along this week! Have a great weekend!

1. I'm sure this is a copout, but I can't think of anything illustrious to say about this one. Guess I don't have a hankering to defy the law today.

2. Well everyone deserves a fair go and I personally wouldn't mind opening more doors, but managing a larger body of immigrants seems an insurmountable task with racial profiling and the general lack of checks and balances that already seem to exist.

3. No never have, perhaps this is related to my answer last week regarding when I jump on the campaign wagon. I wouldn't know who to give it to until the very last minute - nor would it probably matter then.

4. Keys.. not really sure and don't feel like tracking them down. Guess this means I probably don't know what they are all for either.

1. I'm thinking the HOV solid white lines need to be taken away, if they didn't matter anymore, I would definitely use the lane willy nilly.

2. I say let 'em in legally so we wont be spending so much money trying to force the illegals out ;).

3. Nope, no plans to either.

4. 3, two house keys, one car key.

Posted by: Meadow at February 2, 2008 10:03 PM

1. Given all the stupid laws out there, sure. I already do break several minor ones such as seat belts and not paying sales tax on internet or mail order purchases though.

2. We created the situation that forced them to flee, so yeah, we have an obligation to allow more in.

3. Nope. I've never donated to a political campaign, nor do I ever plan to. So far, I've never seen a candidate who deserves my money more than I do.

4. Seven. Car, apartment, mailbox, keys for both my mom and brother's houses, the storage dungeon at work and an ex's house.

Posted by: mike at February 3, 2008 10:25 AM

1. I really don't know what I'd do.

2. Hmm...While the U.S. is "the land of the free and the home of the brave"...I'm not sure whether it would only cause more problems, but what do I know? It can't hurt to help people out of a bad situation.

3. Never donated and never will. Most politicians have enough money, they don't need any of mine.

4. Two. Car and house.

* Hmmm. While it's not always black & white, cheating bothers me. If the cheat was 'beyond a reasonable doubt', I might want to have something to do with helping to even the playing field for those who had been wronged.

* We should not open our boarders.

* Donated to a party. No and no.

* 8. Nope.

Q1 - Crime: Maybe Jay Walking. Seriously, I was at college and there was a police officer handing out tickets for jay walking. That's when I knew I was in a pretty safe place ... College Station, Texas. Gig'em Ags!!! ;>)

Q2 - Immigration: 12,000 is enough in my mind. We need to manage the threat of letting a potential terrorist into the US.

Q3 - Donations: I have donated money in the past, though it was not much at all. I kinda felt like it was useful, only because I really wanted the underdog to win. I might donate this year too since I am totally stoked by this election.

Q4 - Keys: 3 keys ... just that simple. and luckily I know what they are all for.

Q1 - I am with Clark and admittedly speed with pleasure! I would gladly not wear pants in public on occasion, and not pay bills if I didn't agree with the amount I was forced to pay.

Q2 - America is the land of opportunity right?...so what does that say about us if we closed the door on that opportunity?

Q3 - Nope and nope.

Q4 - 7...Car, bicycle, office, apartment, mailbox, and Davey Jones' locker. Not sure what the last one is for...probably some lucky gal's heart. Ok, that was dumb. Sorry.
