MAYBE YOU SHOULD COME TO THE USA (*HACK* *TOOEY*) BEFORE DRINKING THE COLD BEER, BUBBA

Reminds me of a country that would try a child as an adult, then wait until they turn 18 so they could execute him.
 
2018-07-12 02:51:58 PM  
There are not enough death sentences for me. I guess I won't go there.
 
2018-07-12 02:56:31 PM  
At least he didn't spit his gum out onto the sidewalk.
 
2018-07-12 02:58:40 PM  
My teenage years would have gotten me beaten to death.
 
2018-07-12 02:58:53 PM  
Hmmm... If I only got 80 flogs for committing murder I would have to seriously consider it. I mean, it wouldn't be a habit, but every once in a while... You're messed up in the head subby!
 
2018-07-12 03:00:46 PM  
But will they also spit on me and call me 'worthless'.

Not a real flogging then.
 
2018-07-12 03:01:26 PM  
Was it, say, Coors Light?

He kind of deserved it if it was, says, Coors Light.

The religious nutcases here at home cheered on the clergy, then had impure thoughts, after reading that article,
 
2018-07-12 03:01:45 PM  
Huh, seems backwards. I did much more flogging as a teenager and put the drinking off til later.
 
2018-07-12 03:01:58 PM  
Unlike our laws, Sharia laws never moderate with time.
 
2018-07-12 03:02:34 PM  
Ah yes, but lesson learned.  He now won't ever again consider having a drink as a teenager.
 
2018-07-12 03:02:51 PM  
I think Iran needs some criminal justice reform....
 
2018-07-12 03:03:45 PM  
Since it's Iran, I'm guessing he got off for in fact committing the first two and the third never happened.

/religious law = calvinball

He should have learned from someone else's experience.
 
2018-07-12 03:04:47 PM  
Hey, man, you do the crime, you do the time. I never drank alcohol 10 years ago as a teenager, I can tell you that.
 
2018-07-12 03:11:43 PM  
Waitaminnit...if I drink beer in Iran, could I get a flogging, too?
A flight to Teheran might be cheaper than seeing a pro here in the states.
 
2018-07-12 03:14:59 PM  
Wow, that 80 lashes really made me thirsty. Who's up for a beer?
 
2018-07-12 03:20:13 PM  
He got flogged because he is a Muslim. When I get a drink in Tehran I make it clear to everyone that I worship almighty Satan.
 
2018-07-12 03:20:21 PM  
It's kind of fascinating that we have stuff like the Handmaid's Tale on tv when we have stuff like Iran happening right next door.

He must've pissed off someone, or an old rival finally ascended into a position to order such a punishment.

Religion is an excuse to be a tyrannical dick in a "justifiable" manner. Certainly there were others drinking at this event...he happened to be the one who somehow crossed the local religidick.

No, no, NO. In Iran America is Satan. So you would be the spawn of Satan. Sheesh.

He was flogged once.  But he took 80 lashings during that flogging.

/Get it right.

Just a little friendly reminder of what some of the world's neighbors are up to.  We still need armies, borders and guns.
 
2018-07-12 03:52:54 PM  
If I was teleported there on any given Saturday, I'd he the most evil man in Iran.

Well, to be fair, TABC isn't so much against alcohol consumption as they are incompetent and firmly pro big business.

Probably the drunkest, but most evil? I doubt you would be in the top thousand.

Yeah, we should salute the a guy who sent them billions of dollars and lifted sanctions because they're just peachy-keen!

Nice deployment of a giant straw man while pissing yourself. You ought to take that act to Burning Man.

Just to be clear, "we shouldn't respect presidents who have diplomatic relations with Islamic extremist governments" is the argument you're going for, yes? I want to be charitable and assume that what you're saying isn't nearly as stupid as it sounds.

Thanks for getting upset when I criticize Iranian theocrats. It nicely illustrates my point about your team.

Even FedEx doesn't deliver there.  I don't think you know what a straw man is.

It's obviously not rape cos it's generally the victim that gets punished in those cases.

Isn't it bad that iran can take the high ground and say 'yeah we might have flogged him, but at least we didn't take infant children from families having the gall to walk across an unmarked line in the desert trying to escape murder and lock them in cages for literally half their life...

My poor dolphin must have done A TON of underage drinking, because I am *always* flogging it.

You're implying that anyone is seriously arguing against the existence of guns, armies, or borders. I don't think you understand the basic precepts of logic or English.

I thought borders were racist, and anyone and everyone should be speed to enter and leave with no oversight what so ever.

Wouldn't that be 80 "lashes"?

Cagey B: diplomatic relations with Islamic extremist governments


Signing treaties and lifting sanctions in place for 35 years is a bit more than your standard "diplomatic relations". We have diplomatic relations with North Korea.

I think one would be plenty.
