Politics?

Why are all the realistic challenges geared against corporations and for environmentalism? I think realistic 6 should incorporate something about environmental lobbyists who pay off politicians to get laws passed that limit our freedom. Realistic 7 is a downright lie, conservatives believe in independent thought, especially from governments. I do not think it is a big deal if same sex couples roam the streets, but I think it IS a big deal when they petition the right to marry so they can claim the same tax benefits as a legitimate family that needs it. Believe me, if there was no money involved, homosexual people would not want the right to get married. I just don't like the liberal slant this site has.

I would be more than happy to ban you, if that might help keep you from being subjected to differing viewpoints. I understand how this might make a lesser man uncomfortable.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.

Does it really bother you that much? If you don't like the challenges, don't do them.

Hint: The challenges aren't 100% serious...you realize that, right? Sure, they have a total left-wing slant, but they often extend it even farther to the left more for comedic value than anything else.

So?

I don't really like the ultra-liberal tinge of the missions either, but it's not like we're a militant group of rabid hippies, because although the challenges do have a liberal feel to them, they satirize it at the same time, as Sanddbox pointed out.

tldr:
We're not promoting a certain viewpoint over another.

More importantly, why are you paying more attention to the theme of the challenges than to the lessons that they're built to teach?

If you want to express your disagreement with liberals, there's a forum for that.

Believe YOU? Are you saying you are gay and the only reason you would marry your boyfriend is for money?

Ever heard of something called "love?"

If you couldn't sniff the hyperboles presented then you shouldn't be surfing the interwebs.
