QUIZ–Foreign Policy Philosophy

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 28, 2007

I just found a website called Neo-Libertarian through an email list. I found a couple of quizes on the site, and I took one on Foreign Policy Philosophy, and here are my results:

My top result for the SelectSmart.com selector,
Foreign Policy Philosophy,
is ?????
#1 Neoconservative
Emphasis on civilizations, democracy, strength; states act through civilizational and cultural means for their own advancement. We must spread democratic institutions and markets to other countries, but also include a very strong military establishment, democracy is a tool of diplomacy and war, ultimately democracies will side with us and we must side with them, although some of our allies may be non-democratic. Bush-43, Kristol, Wolfowitz.

More information about this result. Get your selector results graphic and text links here. The most frequent top results for this selector. Read selected Books

#2 Liberal
Emphasis on freedom, markets, democracy; free democratic states are good and fair, but autocratic states are immoral. We must push for democratization and liberalization around the world using open trade and international organizations: all people should be free. Wilson, Reagan, Kant, Shultz.

More information about this result. Get your selector results graphic and text links here. The most frequent top results for this selector. Read selected Books

#3 Neoliberal
Emphasis on cooperation, consensus, free trade; cooperative, democratic states are more advantageous than rogue autocracies. To secure our own borders, we should make sure other countries are democratic, free-trading, and participate in international organizations: a much more pragmatic version of Liberal. Clinton, Fukuyama, Marshall.

Quiz: Nerd, Geek, or Dork?

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 7, 2007

I found a link to this quiz on Ogre’s Politics & Views, and unsurprisingly, finished in the 99 percentile in all categories!

Your Score: Modern, Cool Nerd

78 % Nerd, 73% Geek, 26% Dork


For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn’t use to be cool, but in the 90’s that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn’t quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and “geek is chic.” The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

Congratulations!

Starting Year Three of Thunder Pig

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 14, 2007

First, the Bad News:

I am considered a domestic terrorist, and not just by the lefties:

Are you a terrorist?

Your score is 85%

You are a domestic terrorist — according to the US government. In fact, you scored so high that your name is likely in one of the super-secret government databases and your phone and email usage may be monitored. After all, the government needs to watch you to keep everyone else safe. Those “rights” you claim to have were exchanged for “Security,” so stop complaining about them.

Take this score !

I can, with great confidence, assure you that I am on some watch lists.
Which is why I fly privately instead of commercial!!

Now, for the Good News:

I attended the Dedication of Franklin’s “NC Civil War Trail Markers” on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed myself, despite the loss of my 7.1 Megapixel Camera Friday. My 4 MP backup worked well, even though I mistakenly left it on the 3 MP setting (D’Oh!).

I also had a Camcorder that I used to record the event, and will have video up by Wednesday at the latest because of problems converting the video files.
I will have photos tomorrow of the Wreath laying by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and a reenactment of the surrender of the last organized land unit east of the Mississippi in Franklin on May 12, 1865.
