Nukem Boy;3769789Well I've go just the place for you: The Northeast and/or West Coast! You'll find just the type of tolerant, secular people that fit your lifestyle. On top of that, you get to pay higher taxes for more social services! And the REAL lesson of the Second World War is: always take evil at its word while diplomacy in not a panacea. Call me an idiot, God-fearing, hick if you must, for everyone in Chapel Hill, NC is as you well know. :rolleyes: At least I can defend myself when push comes to shove, when the stakes are high. To further that I have the honor of attending USMC OCS this October, as part of class 196.
My kind of young man... kudos!! :bows: I am glad for the UK. They are living smart here and it is sad what energies must be expended to counter all this craziness.. With Real-Bad it's a mix. He is ever so right about Islam and if they do not choose to tone it down internally, the nations of the world ought to help. But all religions are not bad. I've seen too many people helped by the Christian variants to say that, myself included. Let's not go to Christianity's past but look to the present. More charity is down at a grass roots level by Chritians than anywhere else in the world (no you cannot count Bill Gates in this - he is in a class all his own :)).
Nukem Boy;3770640Because of Federalism? Oh and don't forget that much-maligned Southern Military Culture. But who needs marksmen anyways? Then again, as Ms. Rosie O'Donnell said, "Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam." ince she is a none-Southerner, as well as a lesbian, she clearly is a credible source. Curse those God-fearing folks, who largely reside in the South!
Yeah, you know my uncle Buddy was one of those god-fearing folks who largely resided in the South. It was kind of a wake-up call when my aunt Jimmie found his klan robes in the attic after he died (choking on a tuna-fish sandwich as he was walking back indoors to shoot her -- at least we extrapolated that from the fact that he'd been beating her up, he'd loaded his truck to leave her, and he was carrying a gun when she found him.)
I guess them thar lesbians don't deserve to have an opinion. Or abortionists, liberals, furriners, negroes, jews, Californians, etc.
Oh, and some of us lesbian abortionist liberal furriner negro jew Californians shoot pretty damn well.
As for "federalism", learn what it means. It is a system of government that shares power between a centralized body and constituent parts. Whether or not those constituent parts feel like buggering off, and whether the central government will let them, is more a question of how each side feels about the issue and how it interprets its governing constitution than of the underlying principle.
Typical insufferable snobbery, but I guess shame on me for not being sophistimacated enough to head to Switzerland. Who in the right mind would want to serve in the US Military anyways? The talking points look at the military as largely a culmination of the downtrodden of our society, poor them!
No, shame on you for not being sophistimacated enough to not be an idiot. Nothing wrong with the nice folks who join the armed forces (at least the non-idiots). A lot wrong with the idiots who join the armed forces, with the idiots who misuse the armed forces, and with the idiots who are apologists for such stupidity and criminal incompetence.
Have fun, though, and I hope you stay safe. Don't forget though, the part with the hole in it points towards the bad guys.
I dare you to post another derogatory comment about whatever, using the legitime sexual habits of anybody to support your crap, please do it, I am bored and maybe a small antihomophobic crusade will wake me up.

What I love is that you talk about how Southerners have such good aim, and if I recall correctly, Berdan's Sharpshooters, perhaps the first official marksman group, fought for the Union. Also, we got a few more Irish people than you did, and judging by the fact that the Irish were generally the best shots in the world before Americans overtook them (in the 1880s, IIRC), I'd say we had better shots. Plus, we kinda, um, won. So I guess that whole "skill" thing didn't really help enough, even if you did have better aim.
We took your asses back in because we believed that a house divided against itself cannot stand. We didn't want the British to take over the CSA and be surrounded by them(and then since the French were fvcking with the Mexicans, we would have been surrounded by Europeans). Consider it an act of charity, if you will. Oddly, though, the CSA is the only region to have not benefited from fighting/losing against the United States of America.
I fail to see why what any celebrity says matters. Others have held those beliefs, and there are perfectly valid reasons for those beliefs, as well as historical precedent of those beliefs leaving some bodies in their path. Also, I fail to see what her sexual orientation had to do with anything. It seems as though you are attempting to discredit people based solely on the fact that they aren't like you.
Shame on you for making all Southerners look bad. You know who wants to serve in the US military? Me, for one. Me, a California liberal with a lesbian sister and who firmly believes that the Civil War ended properly, that the merit of a person should be based on their deeds, abilities, and not their sexual orientation or geographical origin, and that the church and state should remain firmly separated. Other people who want to serve are those who want to pay for college, or those who want to shoot some towelheads, or want to emulate their parent, or feel that they should serve because their country gives them certain unalienable rights, and that they must pay their country back for all that it gives them. Then there are those that join just for money or because they've played too many first person shooters (or read too many texts that state that there is reincarnation or an afterlife) and can't comprehend the permanence and totality of death.
Judging by the people I know that went into the military or are going into the military, the military is the sum of all parts(hell, even pacifists). No one thinks that they are a sum of all the downtrodden, although the grunts are generally composed of the poorer or less educated groups, or the ones with the least options, of the population.
Crazy Wolf;3772804Also, I fail to see what her sexual orientation had to do with anything.[/quote] It has a lot to do with anything. Nukem boy's mother has a burning hot love for her brother who has his secret urges as well, they tustle and produce a mentally handicapped child... [quote=Crazy Wolf;3772804]I fail to see why what any celebrity says matters.
Easy on the entitlements.:p Soon Jared will be wanting some of that action.
My God, do people really take me that seriously? Crazy Wolf, I've known plenty of kindly, patriotic lesbians and gays myself; Rosie is a kook though. Indeed Every remark I've put in this thread is half-joking, half-serious.
(Serious now) Bottom line is, I'm damned fortunate to be able to call myself American, and I enjoy making myself out to be a mock stereotypical Southern [SIZE=-1]supremacist, hayseed of a man[/SIZE]. Islamic Terrorism is the greatest threat to Western civilization in half a century. Religion is not the problem, just those who manipulate it for malicious agendas, i.e. Al-Qaeda and the Westboro Baptist Church. I'm privileged to be able to have a discussion with each and every type of person in this very forum, for that I thank you; I hold no ill-will towards anyone here. No more posting here for me, end of sermon!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! You get back here this instant!!! There are still two more days in the work week to get through!!!! Come BACK!!!
Nukem Boy;3773938My God, do people really take me that seriously? Crazy Wolf, I've known plenty of kindly, patriotic lesbians and gays myself; Rosie is a kook though. Indeed Every remark I've put in this thread is half-joking, half-serious. !
You're right about the religious nutjobs, and you forgot one more: people who manipulate religion for political ends. There's a reason we have separation of church and state, and it's not because we hate christians (or muslims or jews or the Universal Life Church of Modesto, California, of which I happen to be an ordained minister, try it, it's free, you can do it online and you get a little card you can fill out; Hunter S. Thompson and Mick Jagger and Hugh Hefner are in there too.)
It's because we want to avoid having a bunch of people persecuted, robbed and tortured for their religious views by an all-powerful state. We don't want anyone to have to get on a boat and flee to another continent to found a colony etc. etc. you get the idea.
If you were being tongue in cheek, I take off my hat to you, you pulled it off masterfully (if you weren't, you're still an idiot.)
Unfortunately, there are enough people who spout that kind of horseshit garbage and mean it seriously (and they're either in power or rabidly supporting those in power) to completely destroy the tone of political debate in the United States for decades (not to mention the economy and our international status.) It's like NASCAR took over the damn country, while those of us with half a brain look on in petrified shock and terror, asking ourselves, DO THESE PEOPLE EVER STOP TO F*CKING _THINK_?
Having an uncle with klan robes in the attic kind of sensitizes you to this sort of thing.
As for stylie, this thread needs scantily clad women, stat.

I'm on it! Not my best work, but gimme a break, this was done in like 5 seconds.
