The issue to be honest, is that she’s not really owed 10 billion dollars, is she?
She’s only ‘owed’ any money because many laws in first world countries are heavily stacked in favour of women.
Being married to a successful person doesn’t make this woman a success by proximity.

“I don’t think a husband who cheats on his wife deserves to keep half of his money.”
That’s the key word though: “his money”… because it’s his.
“He should get kicked out of the house and she should get everything.”
“If he cheated on her, and that’s the reason for divorce, then he needs his balls cut off and the wife deserves to get everything.”
Why does she deserve everything?
“Just like if a wife cheats on her husband, she shouldn’t get anything in the divorce. She should be cut off without a penny and die in a trailer park.”
So if a man cheats on his wife, he should be sexually mutilated, and she should get all of his money and property, but if a woman cheats on her husband, she just leaves with what she brought to the relationship? Why doesn’t the man get all of the woman’s money and property if she cheats on him, and why is she spared from the sexual mutilation that you believe men should suffer?

“The Bible is very clear that ‘race’ doesn’t exist. Everybody came from Noah and his family. Everybody came from Adam and Eve before that.”
First of all, the Bible doesn’t explicitly state that Adam and Eve were the first and only humans who existed at the time (see pre-Adamism/co-Adamism), and Genesis is not a fact based historical account pertaining to the origins of human kind.
“Anybody who believes that ‘race’ exists is rejecting what the Bible says, and accepting some neo-Darwinian interpretation of humanity.”
Actually, it’s quite the opposite. Both you (people who believe 2 humans are the ancestors of every human being on the planet) and the ‘out of Africa’ evolutionists believe in monogenism. Neither of you are willing to accept the concept of different main races because it doesn’t fit with your narrative.
“That’s like saying that black cats are evil, and white cats are good. It’s superstition at best, and total nonsense at worst.”
You forgot that “white cats” (statistically speaking) have higher IQ’s, are more civilised, and are less violent than “black cats”.
“To think that people with skin tones are a different race is pure ignorance and rejection of the Word of God”
To think that race is based solely on skin tone is pure ignorance and a rejection of logic, genetics, and historical knowledge.
Does a Norwegian become an African if he moves to Africa and becomes tan from exposure to the sun?

Yes, and isn’t it funny how most of the people who believe homosexuals were “born that way” don’t feel the same way about pedophiles?

“And yet there are still Zombies out there that say it didn’t happen.”
There’s no doubt in my mind that Jews (and other groups) were killed en masse during WW2, but some questions/complaints I have are:
1) Why is there a constant emphasis on the Jews, while hardly any attention is paid to the non-Jewish victims (majority of deaths) of WW2?
2) Where did the ’6 million’ figure come from, and how accurate is it?
3) Why is it a crime (in many countries) to deny the holocaust?
4) Why were/are German tax payers forced to hand over money (reparations) to ‘holocaust survivors’ and their families?
“No they are not going to prison just for ‘questioning’ the truth.
They are going to prison for outright lying, about it.”
An opinion isn’t a lie.
For example, it’s my opinion that Obama is not a legitimate American citizen. Should I be sent to jail simply because my opinion doesn’t square up with ‘the facts’?
If you published an article claiming Obama wasn’t an American citizen, you actually could be charged for libel. Publishing falsehoods about someone is illegal under US Law, as is publicly spreading lies on radio or TV (that’s called slander).
To answer your questions:
1. Jews are emphasized because proportionally a larger percentage of Jews were murdered. Close to 67% by some estimates. No other group compares in either numbers or proportion.
2. The 6 million figure is an estimate. Many people have tried to approximate the casualties. Some saw 5.9 million, others 7.5. As time passes the estimated get more precise. As for how, techniques are varied. For example, the deaths at Auschwitz are calculated by using the Nazi records on arrivals, subtracting the number of those who were reported as escaped or transferred as well as the number still alive upon liberation. The difference is the death toll.
3. It is a crime to knowingly lie about sometime in this country too.
4. Germany chose to pay reparations to Israel. That was a decision by their own elected officials. No outside force compelled them. Besides, it was the German government that stole from and murdered Jews.
1) There were, indeed, many non-Jews who were murdered by the Nazis in and out of the camps. Gypsies, Roman Catholic Priests, political prisoners, Poles, Soviet POWs, etc. But of the 11 million killed, the majority were Jews. Westerners, as a culture, view genocide as being in a separate category from lives lost in warfare (the classic "collateral damage" and actual combatants exceed the Six Million Jews, but these deaths do not fall into the category of genocide). The former Soviet Union suffered tremendously from both deliberate murder as reprisals for partisan activities (as did other countries in lesser numbers), and huge numbers of "collateral damage" lives lost. Red Army soldiers were killed in staggering numbers as Stalin used them as classic "cannon fodder". But these deaths still were not genocide.
2) The NSDAP regime kept excellent records, contributing to the total. Census records before and after, adjusted for survivors who escaped to other continents, contributed. Is six million an absolute number? No, it can only be an estimate based on data available. It is the most accurate data available.
3) So history and the people will "Never forget". Denial is the proverbial Camel's nose in the tent of removing the event from history's records.
4) The then German government officially carried out the program, the current German government accepts responsibility for some level of restitution financially.
I tried - but doubt this will change your opinion.
Once in a while it's good to read a post by a screwball. Jesuswasasocialist fits the bill.
to jesus, stein and other haters 1. Jews were totally exterminated by virtue of their birth and not because what they did. In fact, most of Jews showed absolutely no hostility toward Germans. One can change his behavior, nobody can select who is he born. Even Jews who rejected their faith and/or fought for Germany in WWI were eliminated. There was never in history precedent for this bestial slaughter. It was unique crime in history. Genocide in Cambodia and Rwanda do not come close, because people who lived in one country had animosity either on class or ethnic distinction, Germans killed Jews in any country they invaded - total annihilation regardless of their behavior. 2. It's the most well documented crime in history largely because perpetrators tended to be punctual and proud of their efficiency. 3. First, because it is hate-only-motivated lie; second, huge money must be spend by judicial system for political trials; third, these lie falls on fertile ground because most Gentiles are Jew-haters and it takes an effort to overcome it. There are many other reasons, but in US it's not a crime and I am glad it's not. So, go on. 4, Absolutely ridiculous question. Because Martians and Hottentots who committed Holocaust are apparently out of moneys. Sorry Martians. Oh boy, flooded my laptop weeping for poor Germans. Know the difference between opinion which may be supported by some facts (Obama) and undisputed facts.

“Some people have not figured out that ‘Anti-Racist’ means ‘Anti-White’.”
I think the people in this instance understand exactly what they’re supporting. The main supporters of black on white racism (other than blacks) are self hating whites, and marxist Jews.
“It’s a trendy fad that’s not going to work out well for the participants and those who associate with them.”
I agree, but I have to say… I will feel a great sense of elation when I see the white idiots being backstabbed by the black thugs that they’re so eager to support.

“That means she committed murder on herself.”
I dare you to find a respectable dictionary that lists suicide as “self murder”.
As for your “God’s plan” idea, I think JRook summed it up pretty nicely. It’s my understanding that even if God has a plan, human will can supercede it. If human will (aka free will) doesn’t trump God’s will, then all the horrible acts carried out since the beginning of time (by humans) were effectively condoned by God.
I think of 2 Peter 3:9 in this instance. “It is God’s desire that none shall perish (refuse to repent and be sent to hell)” (paraphrased). So either that means God’s will trumps the desire of those who want to perish, or that the will of those who want to perish will trump God’s will, right?

“There is no ‘dignity’ in suicide.”
I disagree. Though it doesn’t really matter, because most people who commit suicide don’t care about your perception of dignity.
Also, I’d say that choosing to kill yourself when you have a terminal illness is more dignified than people who live a full life on government welfare, or as a depraved criminal, etc.
“She will now be the poster child for a portion of our country that believes ‘suicide’ is acceptable.”
Why shouldn’t suicide be considered acceptable? Suicide is just a choice. It might be considered a bad one by outsiders, but you don’t know what was going on in that person’s life, or in their mind.
“I once believed that it took a lot of courage to commit suicide but having seen several friends and family members make that horrible decision, I now believe it takes even greater courage to fight on, to stand in the face of hardship and say ‘I surrender not’, to stare down death and know the glory that waits on the other side.”
I’d say that either choice would take courage. People who kill themselves usually lack a sense of worth, either in themselves or in the world around them. It’s not as if people who kill themselves just flip a switch one day and say “Hey, you know what… I’m sick of living and I want to hurt my family and friends!” before killing themselves. There’s usually a reason behind suicide, and it’s not always repairable.
Suicide is a choice, one that cannot be regulated or outlawed by government. The morality of the decision is a matter of personal opinion and from a libertarian standpoint, it is easy to make the argument either way.
The issue here isn’t whether it is acceptable or not, or what takes courage or not. The issue is that it shouldn’t be up to the government. If you really want to take your life, you are going to try and you may or may not succeed, but the government cannot stop you. Conversely, if you really want to live you are going to try and you may or may not succeed, but the government cannot stop you.
And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is the issue at hand here because the government wants to be able to decide both. Brittany had to be approved before she could exercise her “right,” and the ACA requires a board to approve your surgery in case your life isn’t worth the cost.
There is no "dignity" in death.
When life is cheap, the entire culture goes into the tank like the Netherlands has and we mostly have.
I thought she decided NOT to take the poison pill and died on her own??

“Everyone – EVERYONE – interprets the bible in their own unique way so…”
People might have different interpretations of the Bible, but that doesn’t mean that everyone’s interpretations are equally valid.
If the Bible says ‘Jesus was a male’ and someone interprets that as ‘Jesus was a female’, then it’s evident that their interpretation is wrong.
“Why not an emoticons version?”
They can make this version if they want, but I can’t see many people using it… especially when Matthew 7:15 translates as:
‘Red x, hippy with a halo and jaundice, ram, deer/fox hybrid facing left’.

“However, don’t ask someone else to do it for you and don’t force someone else to clean it up afterwards”
How do you suppose a dead body is going to clean up after itself?
I was thinking more along the line of make a mess of yourself. Knowing you took the easy way out is bad enough on your family, don't also make them clean up a real mess afterwords, compounding trauma on top of trauma.
Easy enough. A vat of molten metal leaves nothing behind. Throwing one's self in the ocean with weights ensures that you will be "recycled." Plenty of other ways.
Having lived with a host of immune system diseases, I have to say that these "death with dignity" people are cowards. Almost all of them created their own situation through drugs, tobacco, etc., and now they want to avoid reaping what they sowed.
Consider, too, what that person is really doing. You don't find Saved people doing assisted suicide. That means that that doctor is closing the final door that that person has to get Saved and now that person will be in hell without hope of ever getting out.
That is about the most immoral act a person can do.
Who's labeling it “death with dignity”?
Dignity has nothing to do with it.

“most of them think a turd can be picked up from the clean end.”
Haha, it wouldn’t surprise me if that was actually true.
 November 2, 2014 at 10:45pm
I didn’t say that killing yourself is heroic; just that it takes courage if you’re sane.
As for those who choose to live in spite of a looming painful death, I think that’s good for them, but I don’t judge or object to those who want to call it quits.
 November 2, 2014 at 10:19pm
Why does it matter that she peacefully commited suicide, instead of slowly, painfully dying to cancer? How do you know that it wasn’t God’s plan for her to kill herself? Conversely, how do you know that it was God’s plan for her to die from cancer?
 November 2, 2014 at 9:55pm
“Best analogy I have heard. No one condemned them for jumping when facing certain death from fire. Why should she be treated any different.”
Many people (particularly Christians) would have you believe that God gives, destines, and takes away a person’s life… something that I don’t believe to be true (at least the destiny/taking part).
Do these people think that God destined for billions of people to be murdered, or die from accidental deaths? How about children who are born with terminal illnesses?
I think that people who condemn suicide as a cowardly act are the true cowards. Unless you were in a really bad place emotionally/mentally, it would take a lot of courage to end your own life.

“It’s just not important to you because you don’t understand how serious that is in Germany East and West, and how serious the genocidal extermination of an entire people is to those that were almost annihilated.”
The Jews were not “almost annihilated”. Even if you believe in the 6 million figure, the Jewish population would still have been in the millions.
Complaining about some random German teenager saying “Sieg Heil!” just shows how pathetic these holocaust milkers really are.

What’s wrong with German?
Besides, the man in this story isn’t from ‘the greatest generation’, he’s a baby boomer. Baby boomers (particularly in America) were arguably the most decadent and selfish generation the world has ever seen, so please spare us from your ‘holier-than-thou’ BS.
