Blue_Blazer: BMulligan: Blue_Blazer: WillyChase: rebelpride644: BMulligan: The Dog Ate The Constitution: Can't bomb these goat farkers fast enough.

The world will be a better place on the day that you leave it.

So it's ok for you to wish death on someone??

Uh, he didn't wish death on anyone. If you can't tell the difference between those two statements you quoted then maybe you should just sit your bad self down before you make yourself look stupid again.

Right, he was advocating using glitter bombs I'm sure.

I was advocating patience. That, and a well-planned celebration when th moment finally arrives of its own accord.

So... can we celebrate with glitter bombs?


You're going to watch a Twilight movie, and be happy about it? o_O

Sorry, but one violent bigot makes them all bigots. Oh wait, that only counts when the left talks about the tea party. Sorry.

theknuckler_33: It's pretty silly to suggest the history of US involvement in the middle east is akin to wearing a skirt and too much makeup.


Jesus... I mean, what is this, i don't even.

You know what? Fark it

I give up.

The dummies win.

theknuckler_33: halfof33: Blue_Blazer: The statements with the "but" clause signify that the speaker is able to understand causality.

FACE PALM. Understand casuality? Are you serious? The second examples falsely and fallaciously ascribe causes that blame the victim.

Unbelievable.

/the rape hypotheical is the classic example of the fallacious arguments you people are making.

It's pretty silly to suggest the Middle East would be just fine if the USA didn't exist or was never "involved".

Have any of y'all watched the stupid video in question? I have and I can see why the Muslims are rioting - not because it's insulting to their religion, but because it's 14 minutes of their lives they will NEVER get back.

Protesters pretty much always do it wrong. Even when I agree with the stance taken by protesters, their actions are nearly always counter-productive.

Actually I got these new, retro ones:

Walker: American mentality: free speech

Middle East mentality: say something I disagree with and I will kill anyone from your country or even allies of your country and then burn down my own city. That will learn you.

Close our embassies and don't give one more penny to these countries that hate us and want to kill us. We gave billions to Pakistan while they hid Bin laden for a decade. And if you think Pakistan didn't know he was there I have a bridge to sell you.


My Pakistani co-worker is quite familiar with the area OBL was hiding in. It's a very poplar section for military officers to have homes and there was no way they didn't know he was there. So yes, fark them. No more money, with the possible exception of Libya where the people seem to be attempting to make amends.

In one of the videos I just watched, the local "security forces" stood around doing nothing while the mobs tore down the German embassy fence.

HotIgneous Intruder: My right to free speech is protected, but if I got to a drug corner in Baltimore and start preaching master race nonsense to the corner boys, my highbrow rights don't really apply after a point.
My speech is protected, but my ass is not.


So, anywhere between Martin Luther, Biddle, Jones Falls, and Pratt? Or anywhere within a quarter mile of Pioneer City.

First, I'm not going anywhere without a pumpkin spice latte. Second, what color is the hen house at Hereford? Take your pick, skeezle.

I wonder if these Muslims understand how mentally ill all this rioting and protesting makes them look to the rest of the civilized world.

Superjew: It's a convenient excuse. Something organized is going on, and any pretext will do.

Somebody is using the thin skins of muslim fundamentalists to accomplish something.


Yup. Notice this seems to be happening mainly in countries that recently got new governments after Arab Spring uprisings (and places like Sudan that recently split in two). Looks like hard line Islamists aren't happy with their new leaders (Muslim Brotherhood) and are flexing their muscles.

That's what Obama said... and GWB in the campaign of 2000, and Clinton in 1992....

I'm as liberal as the next guy, but I don't have any respect for anyone who riots over "hurt religious feelings."

"Hurt feelings"? What are we, ten-you-olds? If someone does something insulting or disrespectful, put on your big boy pants and deal. Be a grown-up. Try to educate the offender as to why he is wrong. Or ignore him. But don't throw a violent tantrum like a small child because your feelings got hurt.

Given their opinions of the evil, decadent West, I don't think they really care what we think.

Despite all the efforts of these Muslims I still don't think Russia is going to let Pussy Riot off the hook.

They need to be careful around Germany. I mean the Germans seem like nice, peaceful guys now, but it might not take that much to make them try to exterminate another Abrahamic religion.

tortilla burger: Were the Prophet Muhammad around today, I think he'd be terribly disappointed in his followers. Even more so than Jesus would be were he around today. I imagine this scenario where Jesus and Muhammad would be sitting around at a bar lamenting about how idiotic their respective followers are. Though I think Muhammad would have slightly more to biatch about in that particular situation.


what's better:

1. good people
2. "followers" of a religion

Blue_Blazer: Seriously why do all the cons always want to talk about abortion and rape?


They like rape.

AcneVulgaris: Nurglitch: At this point one feels that the 'protesters' are just looking for an excuse.

After being shiat on by white people for 100 years or so, they probably have a problem with white people.


This is the Sudan. The "white people" over there are Arabs, and they're even more racist against blacks than our ancestors ever hoped to be.

Bo 'n Luke: Protesters pretty much always do it wrong. Even when I agree with the stance taken by protesters, their actions are nearly always counter-productive.


Civil disobedience is pretty much the only way to go. Make the people you're protesting against look worse than you. Jumping around and burning shiat is stupid.

Better to use the Eclipse and her "Continent Cracker" superlaser.

A) I didn't say that. and B) The middle east would be far better if the west never got involved in the first place. Read some history.

Protesting video about their violent history and ways by being violent. Nice job.

One of the downsides of being located at a global crossroads is that everyone gets involved anyway.
