  1. Re: Filmakers behind anti-Planned Parenthood propaganda to be charged

    How many people have you killed over this?
  2. Re: Filmakers behind anti-Planned Parenthood propaganda to be charged

    Anyone who thinks this is and does nothing but sit in-front of a computer and type about as if it were an argument over tax reform is a coward and without honor. They would be complicit in evil.
  3. Re: Discussion on Greek political, financial issues + new elections

    In all fairness ancient Greece was really just a Portuguese colony.
  4. Re: Is criticism of arms sales to Saudi Arabia misguided?

    Well yeah.

    People like Christopher Hitchens (pbuh), Sam Harris, Ayaan Hirsi Ali etc. Did a pretty good job showing that what lies beneath much of the Sunni world (especially in the Gulf) is wide...

    Sorry, when you said both parties are to blame I didn't know you meant the Whigs and the Democratic-Republicans.

  7. Re: Thanks Obama! (and Hilary) Guns, guns and more guns.

    I think the the memory of the rise of the brownshirts in Germany, the blackshirts in Italy and the Falangists in Spain do explain the modern European approach. They are memories of strong right-wing...
  8. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Progressive means unfair/skewed towards the poor.
  9. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Progressive in the technical sense not the political. They are the least progressive social programs in the US. Mitt Romney will likely collect hundreds of thousands in Social Security and be will be...

  12. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Maybe he was daring Obama to invoke the 14th Amendment. But I think he was dead serious and led the way on not raising the debt ceiling which would would have led to some form of default. He also led...
  13. Re: UConn to give segregation the old college try, or how the Board of Education of Topeka was right after all.

    Well, I don't really know.

    But the beneficial nature of self-segregation in black communities is a widely held political idea. Shopping at non-black owned businesses is frowned upon. Brands like...
  14. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Wasn't Cruz on board with the US defaulting on it's debt to win a political battle?

    I think Trump is full of hot air on almost everything he says. I think Cruz was pretty dead serious about that.
  15. Re: UConn to give segregation the old college try, or how the Board of Education of Topeka was right after all.

    The Supreme Court ruling in 1954 failed to de-segregate school systems. Self/cultural-segregation persisted well into the 1960's (hence the civil rights movement). The confrontation only really...

    And let's be honest. There's going be a lot of white women in this dorm.

    I was really just looking for some :wub: material but thanks for the analysis.

    At least nobody was eaten in this one. Which in Wisconsin is a sign of progress.

    Re: On why christianity has declined in the west

    Using scapegoating to avoid punishment isn't very moral.

    Maybe we did get lucky and correctly tortured and murdered a cosmic Jew-God 2,000 years ago and will be getting an eternity of milk and...
  27. Re: Political Correctness next victim: Comedy. Towards a Orwellian nightmare?

    No. Not threats, actual murders.

    They genuinely fear becoming the next Charlie Hebdo. That is far from fearing a "twitter-storm" caused by college students with too much time on their hands.

  28. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    The establishment wing of the Republican party will get in line once there is a clear candidate for them to vote for. These are the people who elected GWB, McCain and Romney. They haven't...
  29. Re: Political Correctness next victim: Comedy. Towards a Orwellian nightmare?

    Don't lump the self-censorship of depictions of Mohammad in with social justice warriors.

    The reason they avoided like the plague by media outlets is out of fear of their staff being murdered by...

  32. Re: Is criticism of arms sales to Saudi Arabia misguided?

    It was forged in 1945 between Ibn Saud and FDR on the USS Quincy. That basic agreement hasn't changed; the House of Saud maintains a steady flow of crude oil out of Arabia, the US provides the tools...
  33. Re: Danish teenager who fought off rapist will be prosecuted for using pepper spray

    As we all know victims are usually very afraid to report assaults. This is probably why the young man hasn't come forward. This fact also makes me suspicious of the women. Why is she so eager to come...
  34. Re: Filmakers behind anti-Planned Parenthood propaganda to be charged

    If this is worse than Hitler, Stalin and Moa then only moral thing would be to resist this with absolute violence. We must be the Von Stauffenberg's of our age. Rise up, stop the murders, and if we...

    I am fairly sure this violates his right to Equal Protection under the law guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.

    I think the best advice is to simply not resist. It only makes things worse.
  37. Re: Danish teenager who fought off rapist will be prosecuted for using pepper spray

    According to her story. For all we know she assaulted a perfectly innocent man with a chemical weapon.

    Re: Occupaton of Norway by the Nazis' in WW2

    I might be misinformed, but especially after the start of the Winter War there was a lot of anti-Soviet sentiment, but not really pro-Nazi sentiment.

    Alleged rape. There has been no conviction.
