Worldwalker: clane, I'm kind of unclear on what you're trying to say there.
cameroncrazy1984: Civil_War2_Time: Most Texans blame Californians for ruining the "silicon hills" label we had back in the early 2000s, with their uppity attitudes and lackluster work ethic. Much of the .com bust we had in Austin during that time-frame was due to Californians.That's some fine stereotypin' there, Lou./seriously, replace Californians with "blacks" or "indians" and then read that
Big Man On Campus: In that case, John Wilkes Booth was just a freedom fighter, he was fighting for the freedom to practice slavery.
lewismarktwo: When I was in 3rd grade the teacher split the class into west and east Germany. The west got real snacks while the east got the literal crumbs out of empty bags and cupcake wrappers to eat. The west got to go outside to play and the east had to build block walls that the teacher would knock over once they were completed. As far as I remember she did this of he own volition.
vpb: An unnamed student informed WNDAt first I thought this was a real story.
Greek: Note that I am not a muslim. I just like to research things that matter, and try to correct misconceptions.
poot_rootbeer: I alone am best: Your "Freedom fighters": Killing innocent woman and children by indiscriminately detonating explosives in high populated areas.What's that you're saying about unmanned drone strikes now?

nubzers: Silverstaff: A story about an unnamed student that informed WND. . .Trolling achieved.One thing interesting FTA:CSCOPE labels fascism and Nazism as "conservative," despite the fact that both ideologies prescribe that the state should control everything and own all resources.Uh, fascism/Nazism is conservative, extremely so, that's the whole point. Nowhere in Fascism is the idea that the state should own all resources. Last I checked, Nazi Germany had LOTS of private companies getting very rich off of the 3rd Reich. Private ownership of resources is communism, and violent anti-communism is part of the whole point of Fascism.Volkswagen started there, the VW Beetle was created originally to be sold there. Bayer? The Asprin people? Yeah, they used concentration camp slave labor. . .and produced the Zyklon B poison gas for the gas chambers through subsidiaries. Messerschmit? Focke-Wulf? Those names that got associated with the Luftwaffe? Private for-profit companies (in both cases, these two lasted into the 1960's) That was kind of the whole point of Schindler's List, wasn't it? A Nazi war profiteer who owned and ran an ammo factory having a change of heart?Total ignorance of history and political ideologies and creating strawmen versions of them to attack?Just hammers in the political hit-piece nature of this right-wing anti-leftist "the liberals are trying to brainwash your kids" propaganda.Shiat, I went through the public school system in Texas and they made it pretty clear the differences between Fascism and Communism. I think I had one American History Teacher who was a die-hard conservative that purposely fudged the line between the two to fit her world view (Along with many, many other things) but I called her out on it and she pretty much dropped it.CSB: I would get into arguments with her daily, and she was always shocked that a student would even think to argue with her "truth". Constantly called her out on shiat about the reasons f ...
Civil_War2_Time: Texas sucks, and you should never come here it's so bad.
nubzers: One day she called me un-American. So I brought a copy of my enlistment papers to her class. Not a peep out of her after that.
