Andy Rooney (who otherwise went a few bricks shy of a full load a number of years back) said on 60 minutes the Sunday after 9/11 that we would do more damage to ourselves than those terrorists did by crashing planes into the WTC and the Pentagon. Prize goes to him, I think.


I haven't talked to a family member since that day because I said something similar.

Hypothetically... If some group blows up buses full of civilians, blows up airliners with luggage bombs, throws grenades into crowded marketplaces, sprays automatic weapons fire into the audience at sporting events, etc. and they are doing it to try to strike fear and terror into the populace in pursuit of some political or idealogical goal, this makes them terrorists.... but if another group blows up buses full of civilians, blows up airliners with luggage bombs, throws grenades into crowded marketplaces, sprays automatic weapons fire into the audience at sporting events, etc. and they are doing it to try to strike fear and terror into the populace in pursuit of shiats and giggles, or to show how bad-ass they are to some other group or gang, then this means they are not terrorists and don't deserve the same level of prosecution?

Robert S. Smith, an associate judge, asked whether that meant the members of the rival gangs were also terrorists.

"In the abstract, yes," Mr. Coddington answered.

"So everyone is a terrorist," Judge Smith said.


What would Socrates say? All those Greeks were homosexuals. Boy, they must have had some wild parties. I bet they all took a house together in Crete for the summer. A: Socrates is a man. B: All men are mortal. C: All men are Socrates. That means all men are homosexuals.

Definition of terrorist? Easy:

If you don't like them and have no obligations to their supporters: Terrorist.
If you don't like them but have obligations to their supporters: Violent Extremist
If you like them but have obligations to their opponents or supporters of their opponents: Armed Insurgent
If you like them and have no obligations to their opponents or supporters of their opponents: Freedom-Fighters / Rebels.

NY seems to have skipped the part of the lecture in which they covered terrorism really only being a definition applied to foreign operators. American citizens are just criminals.

I terrorized my cat with the vacuum yesterday. Not intentionally, mind you. But to my cat, I am a terrorist. He later terrorized me, though, by throwing up on the bed, so it's all good.

cleek: here's the USA PATRIOT act's definition of "domestic terrorist":

the term `domestic terrorism' means activities that--

`(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;

`(B) appear to be intended--

`(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;

`(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or

`(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and

`(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.'. 

http://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/Section802.html#802

pretty goddamned broad.

thanks W !


Well, dammit. There are posts on the politics tab that:

A) violate cyber-bullying statutes, and are cruel enough that they could possibly cause somebody to commit suicide [welcometofark.jpg]

B) are intended to intimidate or coerce "libtards" or "conservatards" and advocate influencing government policy by promising an "ass-kicking" or "beatdown" on election day

C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States

That could get you Gitmoed! Or maybe your wife, if she were trolling with your account.

Now that's not fair. God told Mitt and everyone else in his religion that as of 1978, black people are no longer animals. So calling him racist today is out of line.
