Dear Facebook User:

It has come to our attention that you have circulated an image that was a.) not based on an e-card, or b.) did not contain the image of a cat, in violation of the terms of service.

For this reason, your Facebook account has been suspended.

There's kind of a difference between being "pro-gun" and being "anti rendered defenseless."

At that time, the people of India faced a menace even Greater than British rule: Legions of pigs.  Fortunately, after Gandhi convinced teachers to carry AR-15s at all times, the porcine horde was conquered and they could then turn their attention to the British.

The rest is history.

This being NaturalNews, I'm forced to assume that they weren't banned, said nothing about guns, and likely never existed in the first place. I'm beginning to doubt the existence of Gandhi and Facebook, as well.

BSABSVR: schrodinger: Check out some of the ads:

I think that the real reason they got shut down was part of a conspiracy to promote cancer. Doctors love cancer, and they don't want people to realize how easy it is for cancer to be cured.

Wolf_Blitzer: tenpoundsofcheese: He said: "If we want to learn the use of arms with the greatest possible despatch, it is our duty to enlist ourselves in the army."

That is NOT saying what someone else said, namely: "He wasn't advocating for private ownership of arms. He was advocating allowing Indians to use arms WHILE SERVING IN MILITARY SERVICE."

How are you that amazingly stupid that you can't understand an If/Then statement? Thats exactly what he's saying


Ten pounds of stupid, at least.

FloydA: HighOnCraic: A Terrible Human: Wolf_Blitzer: Britney Spear's Speculum: There is a whitehouse petition to crack down on child porn on facebook. Someone want to expiain this to me?

People can start a petition about literally anything on the internet.

If I started a petition about Obama's wang how quickly do you think it'd get removed?

Why do you want to remove the president's wang?!

Once again,I am too slow.


And besides, I really doubt that Obama is using one of these:

Shostie: I know nothing about this NaturalNews website, but the fact that they seem to be cool with Infowars is rather telling.


I had similar thoughts.  Upon seeing InfoWars, I knew I could stop reading as the rest was probably hyperbole bullshiat (at best).
