Spelling

There are several spelling errors on the page. Several links direct to the wrong article. Can this be fixed before he leaves office? -_- Crackertalk 01:03, 5 April 2007 (EDT)

Can't we use his REAL first name, to avoid obscenity? --Ballon 21:07, 11 March 2007 (EDT)

If you mean the article name: I think it goes by what he's best known as, just like Bill Clinton is not at William Jefferson Clinton (it had been moved there briefly, but then got moved back). --Sid 3050 21:16, 11 March 2007 (EDT)
Are you serious? His first name is obscene? Get real.McTavidge 23:16, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Whenever this article gets unprotected, it should be put under Category:Vice Presidents of the United States. --Interiot 21:25, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

And what's the deal with the protection? That's lame -- are the party leaders to remain untouched by the editing of the masses? Surely they can take it. McTavidge 23:47, 19 March 2007 (EDT)

And speaking of the article, someone just edited and left it a mess -- look at the fifth section, unhelpfully entitled "S:" (after bouncing back and forth between "Accidents:" and "S:" a couple of times. McTavidge 00:04, 20 March 2007 (EDT)

Daughters

Cut from article:

Mary is a controversial figure, as she is a lesbian, who has a daughter with her same-sex partner. This is direct contrast with the views of a large number of the Bush Administration's supporters, who are opposed to homosexuality on religious and moral grounds. Mr. Cheney believes same-sex marriage and other laws relating to homosexuality should be decided at State Level. [1]

Is she controversial? Or do Cheney opponents want to use her as a pawn in a political battle?

Are we judged by what our children or other relatives are (or do)? --Ed Poor 16:37, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

He's a republican vice-president. His party is against gay marriage, deleting this reference eliminates depth of the man. (He, personally, doesn't care one way or the other on gay marriage, IIRC.) BTW, I don't think anybody used Mary although they may have sought to try but I think she put a stop to any sorts of moves years ago. Rob PommerTALK 16:47, 29 March 2007 (EDT)
Kerry used Mary, and his campaign manager justified it:
  • Fox News October 16, 2004: Kerry Campaign Manager Mary Beth Cahill told FOX News on Wednesday night that Mary Cheney's orientation is "fair game." [2]
I think this encyclopedia has more important things to do than to address this, except as an example of what the bounds of political discourse are. Speaking of which, how is the 2008 Presidential Campaign coming? Have the two parties settled on their platforms yet? --Ed Poor Talk 19:03, 7 July 2007 (EDT)

Mary Cheney

Even though it has been widely used in an attempt to discredit Cheney, the fact that his daughter is living a homosexual lifestyle remains just that, a fact. To the effect that this personal matter likely affects Cheney's ideas about "gay marriage" is both public knowledge and instructive to who he is politically. I think in the interest of avoiding the pitfalls of wiki, one of which is leaving out facts which aren't convienent to the liberal mindset, we should strive to be inclusive with the truth.

Broken link

The cite for Cheney's education (#1 I think) is linked incorrectly...should be http://www.whitehouse.gov/vicepresident/. A sysop should fix this as the page is locked. Murray 13:24, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

Picture

Could someone put a picture of Cheney on the actual article, please? --User:Additioner 16:51, 15 April 2007

Thank you for the picture --User:Additioner 13:29, 16 April 2007

  • No problem! Sorry, I didn't remember the picture you put here! If you'd like, I will switch them. --~ Sysop-TK /MyTalk 23:23, 16 April 2007 (EDT)

We might want to add a rule from the Americans for Gun Safety Foundation regarding hunting safety, to whit: "When hunting with companions, determine ahead of time the "zone of fire" or area within which each hunter will track and fire should game appear." [1]

Don't forget the principle of overlapping responsibility. It's not just the shooter's job to make sure that "down range" is clear. It's also the job of bystanders to keep out of the line of fire. An accident such as Cheney's can only happen when both parties make a mistake. --Ed Poor Talk 18:54, 7 July 2007 (EDT)

What's about Dick's other lives?

Nobody knows anything about Dick's involvement in Bechtel and Haliburton - and nowadays projects going through Afghanistan? The oil pipeline from the Caspian Sea to Pakistan through south Afghanistan is not relevant enough? Mr. Cheney was one of the leaders of this project. Nobody knows... Should be time to open the books, to see behind the official stories... --User:Turbo

None of this liberal backwash has been proven true (although Haliburton's plans for this natural gas pipeline existed as early as 1983). Please post such trash on Wikipedia. We have no use for factual evidence on this site.J2xl 20:41, 27 June 2007 (EDT)
Turbo, J2xl is speaking for himself. Conservapedia is all about facts, unlike Wikipedia which is takes a neutral stance on crucial issues or adopts a "consensus view" (which to no one's surprise always turns out to correspond to the Liberal viewpoint).
Any information about office-holders using their power to enrich their cronies or themselves is fair game for political biographies. One of the greatest strengths of a democracy is tolerance of opposing points of view, and also the idea that no one is above the law. That is what separates America from (pre-war) Iraq, as well as several dozen other hopelessly corrupt dictatorships. America lets the underdog "speak truth to power".
I'm very interested in a series of articles about presidential corruption. Generally, the further back in time you go, the easier it is, so <smirk> that'll make it easy to dig up dirt on Clinton and Gore. I only ask that we avoid any partisanship. No fair picking on Gore (e.g., pointing out his scientific dishonesty) or Clinton (giving false testimony under oath) just because their sins are so well-documented. Give everyone an even shake(down), I always say. --Ed Poor Talk 18:50, 7 July 2007 (EDT)

Category

Might want to add this: [[category:United States]] to the article. Jrssr5 14:31, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

The Whole Story?

These pages I assume are intended to allow folks to add contributions. A man who served in the upper echelons of government should have more than 2 paragraphs. In my humble opinion you should stomach the failings of such a figure in order to have a complete and accurate picture. What you have here is a third grade summary, of quite possibly the most influential conservative in the world. Unfortunately, it may be the very nature of conservatives to not collaborate that may lead this site's demise. Grow a pair and best wishes.

A lot of pages here should have more than 2 paragraphs - especially if those new paragraphs include objective information, as opposed to radical, fringe opinion. Several recent reverts in the Recent Changes link come to mind... Stryker 12:17, 3 July 2007 (EDT)
Date of birth is January 30, 1941. That might be an interesting factoid to include. I did miss it in the template but it is not in the body of the article. U2 20:42, 7 July 2007 (EDT)
