It was a conspiracy all along to take the site down slowly so Jude didn't just close shop.

Is there a sudden rash of perverted bathroom incidents that I'm just totally unaware of?

What are you people DOING in there?

Have they stripped all the stalls out of women's rooms and installed stripper poles?

It never ceases to amaze me when teams play man-to-man defense on WVU. Especially Kansas, who was getting KILLED off the dribble the entire first half.

Make us shoot over the top of you.

I understand that maybe some coaches think that playing a zone D leaves them susceptible to offensive rebounds, but it's a hell of a lot better strategy than to just let (ENTER GUARD NAME HERE) penetrate and draw your big guy away anyway.

I like his brashness i agree we should temporaly ban muslims from coming in, i agree a wall on the southern border is needed, i agree to not taking refugees at this time.

We are so far down the rabbit hole that someone like trump is exactly what we need. Its pretty obviouse a lot of folks seem to agree based on his polling numbers at this point.

Him against hillary will be a cake walk


LOL

He's pulling 30% support among likely voters registered as Republican, which makes up 25% of Americans.

If you think that's a commanding lead, Hillary has been polling near 60% of a party that makes up 31% of Americans. (And that party's membership will skyrocket with Hispanic voters if Trump is the nominee.)

Trump might be the Republican nominee. Then again, at this point in the election cycle in 2012, Newt Gingrich had a 10 point lead.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/th ... t-and-12-years-ago-today/

There's a reason the entirety of the Republican establishment wants Trump out of it, and it's not because he "TELLS IT LIKE IT IS." It's because they know, unequivocally, that if he's the nominee, they'll not only get crushed in the race for the White House, they'll also get crushed in every other Congressional race from the people showing up to vote against that clown.

Wait, it's news now that some news and opinion outlets are occasionally wrong about something?

The New York Times is the most respected newspaper in the world. Take a look at their corrections section some time.

The fact that Vox, an online news outlet putting out dozens of pieces of content literally every single day might've made some mistakes in the past doesn't change anything about the message, or the point of this thread before it came to a pissing match over quotation marks, quote boxes, and crowd-sourced repudiations of online news:

- There is no connection between Syrian refugees and the Paris attack. The attackers were almost all Belgian and French citizens.

- Linking the threat of terrorism and terrorist attacks to Syrian refugees is completely ass-backwards, and serves only to aid the enemy and their cause rather than keep us safe.

- Islamophobic rhetoric aids the enemy, too.

Exactly the point! They AREN'T refugees....they're PRETENDING to be. I guess you also missed the fact I put refugees in quotation marks, obviously indicating that I clearly wasn't placing blame on real refugees, but instead on those pretending to be.

Thanks for playing and unwittingly arguing against your apparent position.


Sorry. Didn't know your quotation marks indicated that the one guy wasn't a real refugee. Sometimes this medium isn't the clearest form of communication. No need to be an asshole about it.

First of all, are you ISIS? I mean, you know exactly what they want, right? And what could ISIS possibly gain from the US refusing refugees? How could that possibly further their ultimate goal of a global caliphate? Contrary, they NEED their religion to spread across the globe to achieve it.


No, I just pay attention when they say what they want.

Aaron Zelin, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, writes on the site Jihadology, that he
Quote:

looked through a number of ISIS's public statements on the refugee crisis. ISIS speakers "warn that the ‘Jews and Christians’ do not have their interests at heart, and will force them to convert in order to remain in their countries," he found. "They assert that the Islamic State will remain strong despite those leaving. [Refugees] will find happiness only in the land of the caliphate."


http://www.vox.com/world/2015/11/17/9 ... ris-attacks-isis-refugees

ISIS hates the refugees. They are fleeing what ISIS deems to be paradise. Accepting the refugees gives shelter to the enemies of ISIS.


Quote:
And you couldn't be more wrong. There's a vast wealth of information detailing how ISIS is following the Q'ran and pretty much boasting how they are in fact using the refugee crisis to smuggle supporters westward.

Does that mean there aren't really Syrian refugees? Absolutely not. There are lots of good people who are fleeing the violence and terror.

But it's also absolutely true that ISIS is exploiting the overwhelming migration to pour as many sympathizers through the cracks as the possibly can while the flood gates are open. If you can't see that, or refuse to believe it...it's pure stupidity, not ignorance.


You might be right that ISIS intends to use the refugee crisis as a means of slipping some jihadis through the cracks. But the Paris attack was almost entirely carried out by French and Belgian citizens.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/20 ... paris-attackers.html?_r=1

And as the Vox article I linked earlier pointed out, there's genuine debate over whether or not a part of the plan in Paris was to leave a fake Syrian passport so the refugees are treated even worse.




By turning away the Syrian refugees because you think a few of them could be sleeper ISIS agents, you further the argument by ISIS that the Western world is already at war with Islam, not radical jihadi Islam.

And you give ISIS exactly what they want.

None of the killers were Syrian refugees. One of them was posing as one to move more easily in Europe.

Refusing Syrian refugees into the United States and other western countries while simultaneously blaming moderate Muslims that already live there is literally exactly what ISIS wants.

Also, FWIW, several have pointed out that Trump has been in first place in the Republican primary for more days than there are left in the Republican primary.

With that said, I don't think Trump will be the nominee from the Republicans. I think it will be Jeb Bush.


Bush is polling in the single digits right now.

Things can change, I suppose, but even if you don't think Trump is going to make it to the finish line as the nominee, there's 3 other alternatives that are all doing better than Jeb.

He's in fourth place in his own home state.

And I don't know who the hell told him it was a good idea to start arguing with Trump over 9/11, but that has to be one of the dumbest hills for him to fight on that I can imagine.

I know you're dying to pin every crime ever committed on soft, bleeding heart liberals, but interjecting politics into this story is the reach of all reaches.

The Judge was appointed by Mayor Bloomberg, an independent. The Police Commissioner who is outraged by the decision was originally appointed by Giuliani, then re-appointed by Bill De Blasio, the current (and extremely liberal) mayor, who is also quoted as being horrified by the decision to divert the kid.

This is a screw-up. It has no political affiliation.

(And as BADLY as y'all want to use this as another argument against gun control- for some extremely strange reason- please also note in the article that the victim's family appeared outside the courthouse to push for stricter gun control laws.)

Apparently, not only did you skip the middle part of this thread but most of the part where you deal with the reality of living in this country....

My 2nd amendment rights are CONSTANTLY being restricted. With the Oregon shooting and others MORE clamor for even MORE laws restricting my 2nd amendment right so don't act like this is the first rodeo when it comes to gun rights.


You can't keep and bear arms? I've seen guys with arsenals capable of arming a small country. No one has ever seriously proposed taking any of your guns away.

The only argument you ever hear is for increased background checks for buying MORE weapons, and even that can't even get through.

I mean, if you're a felon, then yeah, your second amendment rights have been infringed upon. Then they'll take your guns.

Quote:
Regulated has absolutely nothing to do with your 2nd amendment right. It is an adjective which modifies militia. As a result it tells us WHAT KIND of militia is necessary for a free state. The right is to keep and bear arms and that shall not be infringed!!!! What does infringed mean?


What does "Congress shall make no law... abridging the freedom of speech" mean? I listed just a few of the ways we abridge the freedom of speech.

And the kind of militia that is necessary for a free state is one that the government can make sure has been properly trained and is capable of handling deadly weapons. Some kind of background check might be helpful here.

Quote:
At the same time, you haven't bothered to read the Harvard study I showed above and how the remnants of the cold war have effected the reporting of murder rate.

How media coverage DOES influence and promote these shootings like Oregon. Then for you guys to say.....All we care about are the children when you are shown that to eliminate this one-upsmanship among campus and school killers you need to limit coverage.

If you don't want to do that....and to be honest I can live with that.....but don't mess with the other rights because you can't solve the real problem.


I actually didn't, and don't, disagree with you at all on this point. I've seen studies myself that indicate one of the ways you can lessen the temptation of a mass-shooter is to stop glorifying the perpetrators of these incidents.

This is also true for assholes that blow up marathons, then get their picture on the cover of Rolling Stone like they're a hot new band or celebrity.

The media does need to cover these events FAR more responsbily, and to some degree I think they've actually started to do that. You saw that to some extent with the Charleston shooting, focusing on the victims more than the perpetrator. (Though that may be related to the fact that one of the victims was a prominent politician.)

But if you don't believe in restricting any part of the second amendment, my point is just that you shouldn't be in favor of restricting the first by having the government enact a law to restrict media coverage either.

Just be consistent.

Admittedly I skipped most of the middle of this thread, so I might be behind, but I think I'm in the twilight zone...

The second amendment absolutists are acknowledging that the rights granted by the Bill of Rights (particularly the First) are routinely infringed upon, while arguing that they should be restricted even more as it relates to media coverage of shootings?

I've always said that if you believe in absolutism, believe in absolutism. The First Amendment is FAR more clear as to restrictions on freedom of speech and religion. It says Congress shall make NO law.

So if you don't want your second amendment rights to be restricted in ANY way (even though the word "regulated" is right in there), you should be consistent and require that all laws abridging freedom of speech are unconstitutional, and that slander/libel/hate speech/verbal threats/protests/etc. are perfectly legal.

But no sane person ever believes that.

Growth of government

The GDP also decreases as the growth of government increases. Funny how these stats don't go back to the 20's when government and taxes were cut in half resulting in the roaring 20s.

A lot of lefties on this site like or want to try a 90% tax rate. Well, as Harry Reid said, this is a voluntary tax system. I would like to know the number of the lefties on this site that paid extra on their income taxes to equal the 90% rate. If you really like it, why don't you pay 90%? I would certainly hope you would voluntarily pay 90% of your 2015 taxes. Your federal rate, being 25%, 30, 35, 40 or whatever is the minimum you have to give. You lefties can give more. Like Warren Buffet saying he pays too little in taxes but you don't see him volunteering to pay extra. If you don't pay 90% this year and have never volunteered to pay the 90%, STFU!!!!


Never thought I'd see someone advocate we go back to the fiscal policies of the 1920's. Probably because most people remember what happened at the end of the 1920's.
