    What’s a statist to do when he goes against the state he worships?

    Isn’t sad and laughable that people out their support Hamas because the Israelis sometimes kill children in their assaults? What does Hamas do to Israeli children on purpose? And just who is using the children as human shields?

    I thought that was just a beverage.

    “Hamas is like the tiny ant…”

    Let’s see… invading a place they don’t own and didn’t build and their presence weakens and destroys it. Yep, that does sound like Hamas.

    Catholic is just an old word that’s a synonym for “unity” implying that, regardless of the divisions man has made in God’s church, this truly only one church – and that is the body of true believers, regardless of denominational affiliation.

    Catholics are part of the “mainsteam” Christian set of denominations.

    Those who were around during the hatch recommend people “keep your mouth shut and kind of cover your nose”

    Was that for the mayflies or was that person giving advice for an upcoming visit to Congress?

    Israel wants peace. Hamas wants Israel to cease to be. If we truly have evolved as a society, if we truly want civility and discourse and negotiation and liberty (or at least recognized rights), there is only one side of this conflict to support.

    “If I was in a club, and I found out that there had been generations of people abusing children, and then that club was covering that up, I would quit the club.”

    You’ve just describe humanity in general better than any specific sub-section (except, perhaps NAMBLA). Feel free to resign.

    There’s something between “profit” and “loss.” The government should be in the business of neither profit nor loss. If it operates at a profit, it is stealing from us for no reason. If it operates at a loss, that’s even worse.

    At any rate, what difference does it make who’s in control when the market isn’t free? Trying to sell me on the benefits of Fascism over Communism is a hard sell. Both lead to ruin.

    The government does not need to turn a profit, just break even. Even still, driving out legitimate businesses is fool-hearty at best.

    I might have more to say against it if gas prices were actually set by the free market. They aren’t, so if I’m going to have to choose who does the price fixing, I’d rather it be the government. Strangely enough, it’s more accountable to the people it is fixing the prices against than the corporations are. The real solution is a true free market, but we don’t have anything close to that where gasoline is concerned.

    The conflict is not hard to understand. Hamas, the Palestinians, most Arab nations want Israel destroyed and all Jews dead. Time and again, Israel has offered to give land for peace, it has always been rejected except for one instance – when Israel gave the oil-rich Sinai Peninsula – territory larger than Israel itself – back to Egypt to make a peace treaty.

    Palestinians don’t want peace. They want the Jews dead. How do you begin negotiations with that as the Palestinian starting position?

    I think it is also worth noting that he didn’t lose his job over it. I doubt the Gazis would be satisfied with the outcome, either.

    Saying your should round all of {whatever} on an island and then “nuke it until it glows” is not exactly a productive, helpful statement. Can’t really argue with a private organization applying a little discipline for something like that.

    “Sharia? A Thief Almost Loses an Arm in Philadelphia”

    The Truth lives here. A hand is not an arm and even a backwards legal system like Sharia has a process that must be followed that was not followed here. Apparently the Truth has no agenda other than to spin up its Conservative fanbase so they will click on headlines.

    “Completely legitimate” is a bit of a stretch. The people of the Ukraine elected a pro-Russian government which was toppled installing the present government in Kiev. It was toppled with the help of Western governments who didn’t like the idea of a pro-Russian Ukraine.

    None of that matters a whole lot, though, when talking about this airliner, though. It does not matter who is right or wrong in the macro sense of that conflict. If you don’t know what your target is, don’t shoot it. It’s as simple as that. Anyone who doesn’t follow that simple rule of combat is a thug and a criminal even if fighting on the side of the angels.

    A better questions is why anyone thinks it’s ok for civilians to traipse through a battlefield, even at 33,000 feet. Why do 300 people have to die for planes to be diverted from a territory in open conflict?

    “You’re getting beat with a bat and you fire warning shots?”

    Stranger still: The man you are beating to death in his own house fires a shotgun at you and you call the police on him?

    You need to stand for what’s right, not only regardless of who stands against you, but also regardless of who stands with you.

  • July 19, 2014 at 9:15am

    Ha. You invade a country, destroy infrastructure, wreak havoc, and then blame them for lapses of security when your “soldiers” shoot down a civilian aircraft. What a PoS.

    That’s not really support for obama as much as it is “don’t drag me into your politics.”

    I don’t really want to be associated with a lot of the Republican politics, either, especially Christie’s.

    “Churches noticing any burning objects on their property are being advised to call 911″

    Solid advice. Might want to add it to SOP even when there’s not a serial arsonist about.
