"A new shootout at Navy headquarters in Washington - a lone gunman and 7 corpses. Nobody's even surprised anymore,"

Is anyone?

I didn't see an example of mockery there. Someone's over sensitive to foreign criticism...

Well, we ARE #1 in mass shootings.

That's pretty special.

American Exceptionalism is a really dumb and dangerous idea but why is this coming from the world's most powerful mobster?
 
2013-09-16 12:45:30 PM
We just got trolled by the Russians with the willing participation of the Moonie Times. I'm sure journalists in Russia are amused. The ones not dead, I mean

"Russian Official" is the world's most powerful mobster?

If you were to compare America's white population to Russia's white population, Russians commit far more homicides.  Which is pretty sad for a variety of different reasons.

We are #1, and it's not even close.  Second place is Yemen, third is Finland, IIRC.

Funny, I remember a day not so long ago when it was the highest form of patriotism to criticize the President.  I guess that ended sometime in January, 2009.

/The President is not the United States.
//You can dislike the man and still respect the office.
///Love my country.

Just wait till a Republican's back in office.  Democrats and Republicans will just switch places.

It embarrasses you because apparently you don't know what it means.

Depends on your definition of "special"

So the Russian equivalent of Michele Bachmann says something stupid on Twitter and the Washington Times runs it on page one?  Seems like the the good old days of "you supply the Pictures, I'll supply the War" are back with a vengance
 
2013-09-16 12:56:45 PM
Well, I took a huge dump this morning in the third stall on the second floor bathroom. This is clear confirmation of Russian cronyism.
 
2013-09-16 12:56:47 PM
The Russian guy is right about one thing - nobody is surprised at this at all. We do so love to tune in and watch the blood flow however.
 
2013-09-16 12:56:48 PM
So the next time some Chechen terrorist kills a bunch of Russians and one of our politicans mocks them they'll be cool about it?

Yeah, there has only been one shooting here.

Russia would have gassed everyone in all the buildings like they did at the Moscow theater hostage crisis.

FLMountainMan: We are #1, and it's not even close.  Second place is Yemen, third is Finland, IIRC.


Mostly because we can afford them. Yemen would probably pass us in a heartbeat if all the people that wished they could afford a gun could suddenly buy one. Don't know why we feel the need to arm ourselves more than the inhabitants of a desert wasteland with roving bands of rapey-murdery types about, though.

1.  I do not think it means what you think it means.

2. Careful, you may be fogging up your own monitor with mouth breathing.

Real Americans prefer Manifest Destiny.

Can someone remind him that Russia's homicide rate is almost four times that of the United States?  Russia's pretty exceptional in that regard.

Russian has lots of violence of all kinds, but relatively little gun violence.  Why?  Because in the old Soviet Union, if you committed a crime with a gun, and they caught you, you'd get an unceremonious bullet in the back of the head before disappearing.

So, the criminal class in Russia got very good at accomplishing its violence without guns.

If all you care about is reducing gun violence, I suppose the Russian gun violence prevention model has much to offer.  It is proven to work.
 
2013-09-16 01:01:36 PM
This is obviously a false report.

Nobody can have a weapon in a Gun Free Zone.

Or DC, for that matter.

Really?  When was that?  Because I recall anyone speaking out against Bush during the Iraq War just being branded a traitor.
