feckingmorons: h, you don't say the word you do it by implication with comments like "Why is that important to you?"


That was a simple question.  I was interested in the answer.

feckingmorons: and obliqely talking about Republican/racist jokes about the president.


Who's sending these jokes, in your opinion?

Seriously, they really went all out.  The only thing that could have gave these people a bigger hard on is if watermelon, chicken or crack could have somehow been worked into it.

Over_Zealously_Apathetic: jehovahs witness protection: Over_Zealously_Apathetic: feckingmorons: In case everyone hasn't figured it out now shoe laws are as absurd as banning high capacity magazines or guns that look scary and are called assault weapons.

Criminals will be criminals, there is little we can do about that. Sure, they should probably hold down the hype for these stupid shoes, but even if they took waiting lists some loser would probably shoot the guy with the list and add his name to the top.

You'll always see a few people on Fark who live for the opportunity to call someone a racist. Yet they're the ones posting the racist pictures.

The people that said criminals - of every race- are the problem are spot on. We don't need more laws to stop crime, we just need to put the criminals in jail and enforce the existing laws. We don't need new gun laws or new shoe laws. We have plenty of laws, and too many criminals We need to use the laws we have to reduce the criminals we have.

Calling everyone racist is not a solution, it just makes the hand wringers feel better.

I'm surprised you roped so many in with this ridiculousness.

I'll tell you one thing, it makes no difference to me whether or not a moron got a gun legally, I'm still not safe.  By all means, lets arm more morons.

Like you?

Would it make you feel better if I was carrying in public?


Yes. I do.

feckingmorons: eraser8: feckingmorons: I'm as entitled to my opinion as you are to yours and your insinuations.

Of course.

But, the fact remains that I never called you -- or anyone else here -- a racist.

Yes, you never used the word.

Well except when you said Republican/racist cartoons, you know the kind you have a procedure for finding.

That seems a little odd to me.


Will you two just get a room already?

sethen320: Wait, I take back my previous post...you're not the troll, its the other guy.  Sorry.  I need to go sit in the corner now.


No, not at all, they are good at it, but reasonable people who can think clerly will always be better.

It is easy to call people racist or rush to knee jerk reactions like a scary looking gun ban. It is much harder to find real solutions. We need more thinkers and less knee jerkers and and race card players.

You guys must still be fired up from that CPAC event where people claimed that blacks were better off under slavery and whites were being systematically oppressed.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen these logins during the day when CPAC has been going on.

GAT_00: hardinparamedic: GAT_00: This thread is fantastic.  It ought to be kept around and reposted every time some of these people claim they aren't racist.

You're the REAL RACIST, Gat! I mean, just look at how INTOLERANT you're being for someone so tolerant.

Yeah, that's pretty much the argument I usually get.  Unless you openly accept open oppression, then you're really the person oppressing other people's views.


Who is being oppressed? People are shooting one another over sneakers.

Climb down from the cross and live in the real world.

You mean the guy planted by Kos to start that crap? No, we shouted him down.

Yep, some of us do go to meetings to discuss our nation's problems and work on solutions.

You've got nothing but name calling and old worn out rhetoric.

You still haven't proposed a solution to the violence at shoe sales? Will you ever?

Yes, there are a few of them in this thread. They come out when they can tell us all how horrible we are for wanting to put criminals in jail, thinking that eventually every able bodied person should get a job, and recognizing that decades of incompetent and criminal leadership have driven Detroit into the ground.

He finally said something I agree with. His crowd was honest that they simply call people racist every chance they get, and the rest of us called the criminals that shoot one another - and innocent kids- over some ugly overpriced shoes scumbags.

El Brujo: Rodeodoc: feckingmorons: So you think it is OK that our elected officials aren't doing enough to stop the violence in our black communities?

Is there some reason it's the responsibility of government to stop the violence in black communities?  Are you suggesting black people lack the desire, motivation, or skill sets to stop murdering each other in their own communities.  Are you suggesting that black people have lived off government largesse for so long they are incapable of independent thought or action without some Uncle Tom taking them by the hand? There is no room for such racist thought, sir.

my favorite one of the thread so far



Yeah that's pretty good, but you are a racist for enjoying it.

Agreed.

But, I actually DID NOT call anyone posting here a racist.  He did.

Apparently, according to his logic, pointing out anti-Obama racism is itself racist.  He's like a cartoon.

So, other than the pictures you posted in the thread and links that I haven't tried what do you think is racist in this thread? Why do you keep asking people their intentions with their posts - your couched way of calling someone racist.

I guess you didn't see the Republican/Racist comment he made, or the 'What's your point?" comment when I noted they don't have shooting as unhyped boring work boot sales. He didn't use the word, sure (well except where he really did) but he sure insinuated it.

Do you guys get points for not actually using the word, what is the protocol? I'm sure there is one, there is a 'procedure' for evaluating how long it takes to find racist images on the Internet.

This is why I don't really believe the witness statements.  If he was wearing a camouflage jacket, how did they see him?  Sounds like a bunch of racists covering up for the fact that the girl shot herself in the leg.
