What Is An "Original Post" (OP)? What Is An "Original Post" (OP)?What Is An "Original Post" (OP)? by DAPoliticalForum
In the simplest terms, an OP, or Topic Thread, is a report of someone's actions, an issue, or of an event, which has not been previously reported, and which interests or affects significant segments of the DA Political Forum audience.
An OP might be defined as:
a report of recent events.
material reported in a credible, verifiable newspaper, magazine, the news media, etc.
matter, or issues that are newsworthy.
sufficiently interesting to the general forum audience to warrant posting.
News, then, has a timely value, and it must be interesting to be of worth to the general forum audience. It must, also, have been previously unposted. Once posted it is no longer news, but history.
How does a poster evaluate an event for its newsworthiness? Perhap
The World of SheepPeople watch a shining TV in the middle of the night.The World of Sheep by Asrath
Drive their cars to work, walk through the town’s streets.
Buy, consume, work, produce.
Be together, never alone. Don’t ask questions, don’t stand out.
Dreams are for prodigies. For lucky people.
No one is ever lucky…
And in this twisted world of sheep,
I am a big, black wolf finding my way.
SATIRE: Free College For Students Who Visit CubaSATIRE: Free College For Students Who Visit Cuba by BlameThe1st
Free College For Students Who Visit Cuba, Venezuela
Obama proposes free college tuition for students who study abroad in Cuba or Venezuela.
In a bold move to combine his efforts to provide free college and improve U.S.-Cuban relations, President Barack Obama has proposed free college for students who study abroad in Cuba or Venezuela.
Under his proposed cultural exchange program, eligible students would receive one year of free college tuition in exchange for spending the three months of their summer college break visiting either Cuba or Venezuela.
"Education should be much more than simply reading books," Obama said. "A well-rounded education should also provide opportunity to experience and learn from other cultures."
However, potential college students should not expect their travels to be a glamorous beachside vacation at a luxurious five-star resort. Instead, their visit to either country will entail volunteer work in humanitarian efforts whil
Corporate Lobbying: The Death of DemocracyCorporate Lobbying: The Death of American DemocracyCorporate Lobbying: The Death of Democracy by ComradeSch
In America, it is widely known that corporations are given rights, as if they were people- And by that, it is meant they can pay politicians to pass laws that permit them to become stronger, reduce regulations on industries so they can pay their workers less and earn more, not illegalize harmful goods, and make news channels that only express one point of view. In America, this is a growing problem- And not only socialists recognize that.
Liberals have formed Wolf-PAC, an organization intent on getting money out of politics. As a matter of fact, Wolf-PAC is one of the few groups that actually tries to do something about the problem. As well, Anonymous hackers and DDOSers have the ability to shut down government servers, and whether or not they do it is up to the individuals of Anonymous- And I am certain Anons are dedicating themselves to the problem. Socialists are adamantly against lobbying as well- However, after the bad name the U
SATIRE: News Media Haunted HouseSATIRE: News Media Haunted House by BlameThe1st
Haunted House Scares Guests With Ebola, ISIS
This haunted house trades the ghosts, zombies, and ghouls for media boogeymen such as Ebola, global warming, and the Koch Brothers.
Tim Russet Potato
Every Halloween, the abandoned house at the end of Main Street has been used by the local theater group for their annual haunted house.
However, this year, instead of being haunted by imaginary boogeymen like ghosts, ghouls, and goblins, the house is hosting imaginary media boogeymen such as ISIS, Ebola, and the Koch Brothers.
The decision to update the house’s haunts was made in light of recent fear-mongering within the mainstream media, which proved to be harsh competition for traditional scares, the trope’s leader, Dr. Rector, claimed.
“When you have cable news channels pumping the public with fear 24/7 over Ebola and ISIS, suddenly classic horror monsters like Dracula and Frankenstein no longer scare people,” Rector said.
But rather than be

Red Humour- America, Invade the Vatican!Swiss Guard: 135 Members, No Tanks, Artillery or AircraftRed Humour- America, Invade the Vatican! by ComradeSch
Al-Quaeda: About 25,000 members, Has IED's, rockets, and potentially WMD's.
Vatican: One of the richest organizations in the World (has been collecting gold for 1,600 years). Wealth nearly incalculable
Al-Quaeda: Relies on stealing enemy weapons and Molotov cocktails to sustain combat. Main resource is crude oil.
Vatican: 100 acres of land.
Al-Quaeda: Has no specific territory, operating globally.
So, my friends, why note invade the Vatican, steal all the gold, and sell it off? After all, with that kind of money, you could BUY the entire Middle East and stop wasting lives!
The Creeping Devil: Russian NationalismGreetings all!The Creeping Devil: Russian Nationalism by KnoFear
This piece represents a conglomeration of work which I feel I may have overdone, in view of the length of time I used to write it. My return piece concerns the growing trend of Russian nationalism, a right-wing philosophy has been essentially the national policy of the Kremlin.
Russia for Russians: A Brief History
Russian nationalism has been a mix of historic attitudes and Orthodox Church support for centuries now. In the past, tsars manipulated the xenophobia of Russian peasants generally to stoke support for non-Western varieties of modernization or expansion. Given that Russia was harshly dealt with by Mongol invaders, it’s not hard to see where a general dislike of foreigners may have originated.
A radical sea change began with the October Revolution in 1917. Suddenly, the entirety of Russia (and soon, the Soviet Union) was now under the leadership of an internationalist
Typical Arguments of White Supremacists- RefutedMe: Why do we bother to hate our fellow humans, based on skin colour, race, language or sex? It's infinitely pointless, and perhaps one day we may realize.Typical Arguments of White Supremacists- Refuted by ComradeSch
White Supremacist: Actually WRONG moron! It goes far beyond skin color & in fact there are over 120 major differences not to mention the white mans brain is substantially bigger! These people's have been a scourge & a pestilence toe very single nation they come into, where have you been? Study your history. It was a majorly foolish mistake to introduce these people's into our society, there is no such thing as working integration. PERIOD!
Me: I noticed your reply to my comment, and perhaps it's my obligation to set you straight. 120 major differences? And I'm sure close to all of them are irrelevant. Brain's slightly larger? That does not decisively indicate lower intelligence. Someone can have a slightly smaller skull and yet have twice the amount of connections in the brain- Making him vastly more intelligent than YOU.

I. The Degrading State of the World
One time, we of the First World (before the term "First World" was coined) were politically, economically, and socially stable. Yet, after World War 2, Korea, Vietnam, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lybia, Syria- All these conflicts and investment in the military-industrial complex, we see political stagnation, steadily rising unemployment, increased incarceration, complete shutdowns of government, instances of martial law, and incredible objection (mostly for religious reasons) of honest attempts to make society more fair, and equal. To the revolutionary, and particularly the secularist and the socialist, it seems as though society is falling to the ground. However, the Marxist gets the last laugh, as "in the conditions of the proletariat, those of old society at large are often swamped... Law, morality, religion, are to him so many bourgeois prejudices, behind which lurk in ambush just as many bourgeois interests"
WillThey used to call it going to church. For about twenty years, just before I was born, they called it going to the mall. That was before the CCTV agencies got connected with the wiretap WATCH agencies in to one big network. They had to stop calling it that because CCTV confirmed none of the folks were at the mall when they said they were. Nowadays they just call it hanging out, but they never say where.Will by witwitch
Going to church isn't illegal. And neither is religion or believing in God or reading the Bible. Most everyone is Christian. But Grandpa says people forgot what it means. Grandpa wants me to know what it means. That's why he's going to take me to church.
Grandpa wants a lot for me, and I don't mind it. The only part I mind is keeping it secret. I want to tell my friends but Grandpa doesn't trust them. He tells me things he doesn't tell my brother, and that's the only reason I don't tell nobody, besides the fact that I'm afraid he'll stop his telling if I do, and I like to listen when he
Grandad.I stand at the foot of his bed as heGrandad. by nornagesta
Restlessly struggles to breathe.
His soft skin draped over bones
Like an ill fitting blanket.
Deep lines in his face,
Deep with the tales of a life long lived.
With the life that stood in my defence,
That stood tall with our nation.
Now lying there so cold;
A shadow of his former self.
Tube fed and ventilated.
Sitting next to him a girl
Flipping through a magazine.
Glossy pages, glossy lives,
An obscene fašade of who we are.
And who are we?
Peers, peer to peer networking;
Networking a lie in order
for us to forget what it is to live.
Because if we live,
And we love,
Then we must also lose.
Wild eyes deep set in greying pits
Fervently search the room like
A child waking from a nightmare
but he recognises us.
A bell rings, time to leave.
But for the last time?
I honestly don't know.
I take his hand.
The hand that was once massive compared to mine,
That tied his handkerchief around my knee
As I cried with the pain of
Marxist Analysis of the 2013 Debt CrisisA Marxist Analysis Of The Current Debt Crisis In America.Marxist Analysis of the 2013 Debt Crisis by The-Necromancer
By now, most anyone who has been paying attention to American politic will have become deeply familiar with the crisis in Congress. Once more, the Democrats and Republicans are waging verbal war over raising the nation's debt ceiling. The point of contention largely falls on the funding of "Obamacare" (Officially the Affordable Care Act) which went into effect roughly two weeks ago. The Republicans also point out, for legitimacy's sake, the excessive spending of the Federal Government in general as well.
Now, as "Obamacare" has gone into effect, and was upheld by the Supreme Court as Constitutional, there is very little standing in the way of it's implementation. The Republican opposition to the new law is largely, repeat largely, ideological in nature. It represents to them a quasi-Socialist level of government "intrusion" into individual lives. Not only that, but golly-gee, it might just be expensive. Certainly the Cong
Interview between a Capitalist and SocialistCapitalist: You do realize that Lenin's forced collectivism caused the Russian Famine of 1921 right, and that he oppressed civil liberties as much as any dictator?Interview between a Capitalist and Socialist by ComradeSch
Socialist: He did not know, however, that collectivization then would have that effect. Collectivization before 1917 had worked just fine. Also, he only issued "war communism" because of the Russian Civil War- And if he had not died in 1924, he would have likely repealed war communism for a more regular system.
Capitalist: You are right that Lenin did not know of the results his collectivism would bring, but does that mean very much? Approximately 5 million (I believe) people died from it, and he created such a totalitarian, oppressive atmosphere, that nobody would dare to tell him that his collectivism was causing the starvations in the first place. It's just like what happened with Mao Zedong's Great Leap Forward, only to a much less degree. However, collectivism has been tried before 1917, with the pilgrims, and it failed
An Argument for SocialismI am often reminded that Capitalism lifted nations out of poverty. But it could also be said that monarchies lifted nations out of barbarism. As time marches on, we build new governments for ourselves, and new methods replace the old. Capitalism has done well getting us to where we are now—but there is reason to doubt that it will take us further.An Argument for Socialism by witwitch
Capitalism has brought us a wondrous age of innovation and new technology. The first world nations now live longer and more comfortably than ever before in human history. Society has changed. We depend on many modern day innovations to survive and function. Our society has become more complex and advanced, and our government should take this in to account. For this reason, governments should guarantee healthcare and education as rights to its citizens. In first world society, these things are essentials which are required to function within that society. To prove this, we shall examine how human beings survive in first world society.
Bullshit Mountain Erupts: The Government ShutdownGreetings all!Bullshit Mountain Erupts: The Government Shutdown by KnoFear
In a break from my experiment with poetry (which appears to be going well so far), this week I’ve decided it is rightful to address the government shutdown. Seeing as this isn’t a very common event, I’d like to present some ideas for dealing with it, alongside with a slightly new approach to how I structure these pieces.
Introduction: What caused the shutdown?
For those not living in the United States, the news of the shutdown of the government is likely not covered highly and/or not paid attention to. Even if it is, I’ve already had to explain to several people what’s going on this week, so I feel it’s a good idea to cover what caused the shutdown, and what it means for my country.
The shutdown occurred Monday, when Republicans and Democrats in Congress could not agree on a budget for the new fiscal y
