paygun: Quasar: I refuse to believe any of this until I see Wolf Blitzer leading us through a holographic reenactment of the coffee purchase.

I'm with you, but it only counts if it's accompanied by a Google map on a touch screen bigger than 5' wide.


Alright over here is the candy aisle. Let's expand that. Alright let's shrink that back. Now over here is the coffee. Let's move that to the side, expand that. Alright let's shrink that back. Over here is Pennsylvania...

Pocket Ninja: Why, he was wearing clothes in the video! That means he bought clothes somewhere! Probably from a couple of different places! Unless he does all his shopping at Kohl's or something. And if he does buy his clothes at Kohl's, that means he was at a Kohl's! Sometime recently enough that he bought clothes he was still wearing! And he would have had to use his wallet! Which means he bought his wallet from another store that he was at! Unless he bought it from the Kohl's, which isn't impossible because they sell men's wallets, too! I mean, not great wallets or anything, but workable wallets! Leather ones! I think both in the trifold and bifold option! Although I don't know why anyone would want a trifold wallet! I mean, they're so bulky! Maybe that was part of the problem! Maybe he bought a trifold wallet at the Kohl's where he bought his clothes! And he didn't like his wallet! But I'm just speculating now! Stay tuned!

Came here to say this.

If any!


Since he was in a military uniform, I'm gonna go out on a limb here:

Combat boots.

There, now you can rest.

I would. Islam isn't a race.

on a semi related note, why do Mexicans love chinese food so much?
I swear I've noticed more hispanics eating in chinese restarants than I do in mexican restaurants!




I take it its a chinese buffet. Since you dont need to order food, you dont need to know english to eat there.

RoxtarRyan: See, here's the confusing thing: According to TFA, he wanted to get out since 2001. Eight (at least eight, almost nine) years ago. Unless the man was on stop-loss for years at a time, which I highly doubt, he had to have re-enlisted since then. If he was biatching since '01 that he wanted out, why did he re-enlist? Doesn't make any goddamn sense. Sounds like he had a shiatload of problems in his dome.

It made me damn sure that I'm not gonna have the military finance my med school education.

dude was 39 and a "devout" muslim. Looking for a wife.

If you were 39 and still a virgin, and had access to guns you would probably want to kill some people too if you thought the only way to ever have sex was to die a Matyr and get 72 virgins.

Too much older and even the virgins would not want him when he got to heaven.

RoxtarRyan: Britney Spear's Speculum: Does the military has capital punishment?
The real shame is that the taxpayers paid for his med school and he didn't fully fulfill his service obligation.

See, here's the confusing thing: According to TFA, he wanted to get out since 2001. Eight (at least eight, almost nine) years ago. Unless the man was on stop-loss for years at a time, which I highly doubt, he had to have re-enlisted since then. If he was biatching since '01 that he wanted out, why did he re-enlist? Doesn't make any goddamn sense. Sounds like he had a shiatload of problems in his dome.


Well, the army paid for my dad's law school, and he owed them 3 years of his services. This guy owed a fair amount if they paid for med school. Plus, if you flunk, you become enlisted.

AnotherDisillusionedCollegeStudent: BlorfMaster: I am always baffled about how making comments about the way another person worships their invisible sky wizard is 'raceism'

Let me ask you this, if a white Southern gentleman named John Parker Thompson went and shot up a military base while shouting "God is Great", would people immediately assume that he was a Muslim, and that the violence was inspired by Islam?

ihatedumbpeople: Is it racism when it's true and justified? It's not like I made it up or anything...he did it, he killed people in the name of Allah. If anything, I'd say he was the one full of stupidity, and so are you for bringing bigotry and racism into it.

Or, he was just invoking his god during a heavily stressful situation. Just like how anyone who has said "Holy Mother of God" in a stressful situation is automatically Catholic. Idiot. Seriously, it's your thought pattern that is and has been ruining this country for decades.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: Oh please, shut the f*ck up. If, assuming you aren't middle eastern, you had to choose to live for a year with only people of your race or only middle eastern Muslims you'd pick your race. And that makes you racist. So STFU and DIAF.

Apparently you know me personally. I'd love to know where we met, and how you ever got that inclination. Please, keep quiet while adults are talking.


What's it like being an extremeist apologist? It sounds exhausting.

No, what he was yelling was "Cialis Ahkbar", or "Cialis is great!". It makes the comments about Muslims "rising up" make a lot more sense, yes?

Contributory factors != proximate causation. Let's see, did he go apeshiat because he was a radical nut Muslim, or did he go mass-murderer because he was constantly dealing with the demons of the most psychologically damaged people in the military, was socially anxious, was having severe female problems, or maybe, I don't know, being sent off to freakin' Afghanistan in a few weeks?

The only reason people think Islam is the primary factor is because the guy's a freakin' Arab. That's why it's racism.

Yesterday, some kind person explained more about the route that this Major used to get into medical school. First, he was in ROTC at Virginia Tech, then he went to medical school at a military medical school - he was then sent to a residency paid for by the military. He was then obligated to pay them back with X numbers of years of service, starting with his duty at Walter Reed, which he farked up by being weird and surly.

My understanding is that he had 8 years he had to pay back and knew all along that doctors trained at U.S.S. Medical School were going to be Army Doctors and that nearly all of them would see some time overseas in a combat zone.

He did everything he could to try and get out of this deployment. He made statements regarded as controversial by other army personnel. Instead of kindly acquiescing to his wishes, the Army saw fit to deploy him against his wishes.

If he had managed to make nice at Walter Reed, he'd still be there - but he didn't. The Army retaliated by shipping him ever closer to Afghanistan. He then worked out his own strategy of fighting back.

So, to those people who keep asking why the Army would send a trouble-making shrink with non-standard political views into a combat zone, well, I'm thinking that's probably pretty much standard operating procedure and has probably worked well in the past to get them out of everyone's face.

If a White Southern man named John Parker Thompson went into Mission and shot up a bunch of gay people while shouting "Christ will redeem me," EVERYONE would immediately assume that he was a Christian extremist, and that the violence was inspired by Christian extremism. It would immediately be deemed an act of Christian domestic terrorism.

So I guess this is what Obama was implying when he said America was enriched by Islam. Religion of peace indeed.

Just like when Christians bomb abortion clinics. It has nothing to do with Christianity, it's just someone with an axe to grind trying to make Christianity look bad.

It takes more than using big words to succeed at an argument. They can teach you the big words at the college, but the other part needed is, perhaps, a natural talent (or perhaps you'd rather see it as a gift from God - I don't know your ideology).

Because a minority lunatic fringe has dick all to do with the few odd million Christians on this planet, amirite?

EVERY flavor of religion has their share of nutcases - Islam included. You just hear a hell of a lot more about them nowadays.

Maybe so, but let's deal with the real issue here. This whole 9/11 thing was blown way out of proportion. The guys who flew those planes into those buildings were just really bad pilots. Everyone assumes they did it on purpose just because they're from the middle east.

Nope, it's because he's Muslim. It's not based on how he looks, but his name. Did you read his full name? If a white dude with that name did this, i'd assume it was related to Islam. That wouldn't be racist. It WOULD be religious stereotyping, it would also be backed up by massive amounts of evidence.

i'll tell the girl at the campus bookstore that you're culturally thenthative. i'm sure she'll dig it until a non-wuss takes her from you.

So does quoting anything from the Koran, factually reporting what the terrorist themselves said was the justification for their actions, or generally saying anything bad about any Muslim even if it is 100% true.

What are you, some kind of Islamophobe? Next, you'll be saying that it is a bad thing to stone adulterers to death. How dare you make moral judgments, you're culture is no better than theirs!

"Mechanic, who does not know Hasan, said people don't just snap. 'When you start looking back, there are crumbs that suggest everything was not hunky-dory.'"

/followed by thousands of reporter-hours of digging without a single such crumb being uncovered.

What makes people think that we can predict this kind of crap? Post hoc, ergo propter hoc? I'm sure that eventually they'll find some co-worker who Hasan yelled at once for stealing out of the breakroom, and then they'll be all "Ooooh, we should have known! What a confrontational person, and non-forgiving too!"
