ROFLMOA!

Oh Clyde, you just don't get it do you, but then I didn't expect you too. ;-)

Cheers.

No Clyde doen't get it.

I'm surprised we have so little hydro-electric power

So why do you keep attacking this notion, if its a notion that no one has ever stated as something we should seriously look at?

Because it allows him to engage in us-vs-them and attempt to claim the moral high ground at the bottom of the pit toilet and call for mass extermination.

When was the last time you commented, in these posts, regarding the Internal Culture's of France, Germany, UK, Australia, etc. Do you really care?

I know I was posting in the Crimea thread within the last week.

Lets assume you are right and that all men can't help but rape.

All? Your word, not mine.

Then rather than putting the onus on woman to police them selves lets start treating men as the animals you seem to think they are. Men should not be allowed out without a chaperone.

Glad you are calling for that. It will work just as well as Islam where women can't be out alone.

If you want to realize the biology, then study why penis and vagina developed as opposed to the many other methods different animals - yes we are an animal - use. Tell me is rape even possible with some of the other methods? Take that as a big clue to the answer to your question. None of this makes it right, it only addresses why it exists and why it is impossible to 100% prevent.

Why is it easier to invent anti-rape nail polish than find a way to stop rapists?

Ask your God why he invented testosterone and had some brains swim in it.

yes yes, and cats often eat their kittens.

What's your point?

Did you read the report. Having a penis causes rape. At least in birds.

I know you have no personal experience in having a brain swimming in testosterone, but I'm sure you are aware of how some chemicals, e.g. LSD, can affect thinking. Are you assuming testosterone has no effect?

You asked a silly question and got a real answer. I know it wasn't what you wanted to hear. You simply must realize that impulse control is never 100%. (Why do they put candy at the checkout?) Doesn't make it right, but it answers your question.

Almost nobody inside The USA, cares about all the internal problems of other Country's. That's your problem.

Clyde, maybe you don't, but we have something called "The State Department" that interferes in nearly every country's internal affairs. Does the phrase "ignore the government at your own peril" have any meaning to you?

I only stated what is America doing letting minors handle machine pistols/guns.

This is more deserving of a Darwin award than anything else.

The 'pause' confirms one of the few details initially released. That the Officer fired, Brown kept charging, and the Officer fired again.

Where did you get the "charging" from ? All the reports I have seen say that Brown was running away from the officer.

T.A.

So he was running away backwards? He was shot in the front.

Our problem, in this Brave New World, is that in 5, 10, 20 years: It is very possible that a Psychotic, Mass Murdering, Suicidal group, may be able to obtain, and use Weapons of Mass Destruction (Biological, Radiological, etc.) inside Large Western Populations.

Label, label, label.

Why don't you stop labeling and make them your best friend.

Best friends don't do those things to each other.

But still her mind was clear enough to be able to sue her shrink

Did she file it, or a conservator file it in her name?

I think you over estimate the numbers rushing to push the red X Clyde. I do find it amusing that you make these speeches about how offensive you find some posts, yet are completely oblivious to how offensive your posts have been on many occasions. (this being one of them)

+1

Luckily the more tolerant left wing posters such as myself don't need to be told not to go around red Xing posts we don't agree with, because left wing people believe in things like your right to express your opinion no matter how unpleasant it is.

Yes. But lets try and get back on the topic please.

If you want to scream about Rupert Murdoch's opinion a/k/a Faux, just use the create a thread button.

What is done then?

You can catch and bring to justice those terrorists without glassing the general area where they are thought to hide.

And with Muslim terrorism, violence as a response only creates more violence down the line. It would be feeding their cultural victim complex which underpins so many of their extremist organizations.

How does one identify ALL these people?

How does one CATCH these people?

Think about this: How does one catch ALL the common criminals, in your Country, before they commit crimes?

The ability to do this, you believe exists, doesn't, and will not exist in the future.

Sorry.

Clyde you are talking past James. No where did he say anything about trying to catch them before they act, only after.

Clyde are you actually arguing for thought police? Arrest and punishment before the crime is committed? Found guilty because of the people you know? That sure sounds a lot like the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice. Have you become your enemy?

I wish us all strength and skill as we struggle with intolerance in ourselves and in our society. It has been my personal experience that this struggle is not something one "gets beyond". Personally, I am better at it than I used to be, but I am not "beyond" it. If I deemed myself to be "beyond" untrue, unjust, unfair and unkind beliefs, I think I would be at risk for not recognizing intolerance in myself.

So true.

So much of what is intolerance may flow from ignorance. An example. You see a group of teenagers walking down the street. If they are like you, you can pretty rapidly judge if they are a threat to you in some way. If they aren't like you, from a different culture, you have no reference to make the judgement, however as they aren't doing the things you expect, you place them in the possible threat category. If you then end up talking to them, if you have them in the threat category you will be more hostile to them than if you have them in the no threat category. You have just engaged in discrimination.

It is next to impossible to stop this, until you recognize it. Even then you won't be able to 100% suppress it. Until you learn that culture, so you can read it, there will always be a percent or so.

I'm going to ask the tea party stuff move to a different thread. I'd like to keep this one a bit more "pure" on race and immigration.

And if it takes an example in Canada to get American's talking about their policies and prejudices, then that is a good thing. I know, sometimes things are to close to home otherwise.

http://news.yahoo.com/israel-says-found-hamas-training-manual-gaza-115338033.html
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The Israeli army has released what it says is a page from a seized Hamas training manual that would appear to support its case that Palestinian militants deliberately use the cover of residential areas for combat operations.

Hamas, which denies it puts civilians at risk by storing and firing weapons from built-up areas, dismissed the document as a forgery intended to justify Israeli attacks that have killed hundreds of children, women and other non-combatants.

Who to believe?
