They're both dangerous - and for the same reasons. Any group that believes that it has "divine truth" on its side and has received a dictum to spread that belief is dangerous. The problem isn't the particular god, or the particular tenets of the religion in question, although they certainly help. The problem is unjustifiable mystical beliefs and the notion that those beliefs ought to be shoved down every non-believer's throat.

With that said, it's clear that at this time, Muslim extremism is a much more pressing issue. But let's not stick our head in the sand and pretend that only Muslims want to impose a theocracy.


Neither here nor there to what I was quoting.  I don't doubt for a minute that the religious right would impose a Christian theocracy if given the chance.  Doesn't change that the typical liberal mentality that I see displayed is one where Christian's are dangerous, but Muslims are not.  It's utter nonsense.

Sad - they find the missiles at the school, yet may have given them back to Hamas.  Come on. 



No. Sadly, the Palestinian people want peace. Most of them do. But Hamas does not, and uses them and doesnt care about them.  Very sad.  No one wants missles coming to them, either way.  But Hamas needed this, because the Arab world was slowly stopping to give them money, and worse - Egypt doesnt want anything to do with them, as well as many other Arab nations.

What is not noted here is that Israel and Egypt are working together.  At the same time Israel responded to Hamas' rejection of the cease fire, Egypt closed all borders and illegal tunnel activity on their end too. 







Nope.  Not only was Hamas elected by Palestinians it is impossible for them to function without their help.  Of course there are those that don't want a fight, as in any war.  But trying to portray Hamas as so different from the average Palestinian - the very ones who put them in power - just reeks of politically correct non-sense.

really? You have a link?


I'm not a big fan of politifact, but it's one of the first that popped up and I don't feel like searching.  This is a dead issue.

Here is the part in context:


"And those ideas eventually inspired a band of colonialists across an ocean, and they wrote them into the founding documents that still guide America today, including the simple truth that all men -- and women -- are created equal.

But those ideals have also been tested -- here in Europe and around the world.  Those ideals have often been threatened by an older, more traditional view of power. This alternative vision argues that ordinary men and women are too small-minded to govern their own affairs, that order and progress can only come when individuals surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign."

You didn't read anything.  Aren't you the same twat crying about coach not reading your multi-page non-sense.

Why yes...yes you were.

15) Liberalism is pretending that Christians are dangerous while radical Islamists chanting "Death to America" and advocating Sharia law are harmless little lambs.


lol...yep.

82  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: 5 NYPD cops choke unarmed man to death on: July 20, 2014, 05:26:47 PM

The guy was dealing in untaxed cigarettes.

That affects the salaries of the cops, the prosecutors, the judges.

Doesn't surprise me they off'd him.  And I fully expect them to all cover for each other.

I think I'm getting just more and more cynical. 

It's unreal that we as a society accept that these charges are so horrible, so heinous, so terrible that the cops are allowed to murder somebody just to get them into custody.  Un-fucking-real.

The Palestinian people are a conquered nation.  Let Israel finish them off and get the fuck over it.  It's happened time and again throughout history and it will happen time and again in the future.

No, it's not.  I would encourage you to read his whole speech.  This non sense was already posted.
86  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Federal Judge Strikes Down California's Death Penalty on: July 20, 2014, 04:36:50 PM
The Innocence Project has really changed my mind about the death penalty.  Too much room for error, too many corrupt prosecutors.

I suppose if the guilt is without any doubt whatsoever (if such is possible) then maybe I'll be all gung-ho about the death penalty, but for now, it's just too convoluted.

Well, I think we are incrementally moving to a NWO, but this video is non-sense and they put together his words out of context to make it sound like he was saying something he wasn't.

?  I made the comment:  "We would never take away someone's liberty for this kind of mistake in the U.S."  You call that statement naive, but cannot provide an example of the U.S. locking someone up indefinitely because they made a mistake like this? 

Nobody sits in jail for three months over this kind of mistake in the U.S. 

And yes, the issue is that he missed his exit and wound up in Mexico with weapons.  He wasn't trying to transport weapons into Mexico.  He simply made a mistake.  If you've ever driven into a country with open borders you'd understand how easy it is to miss your "last U.S. exit," especially in that part of the country. 


Of course they do.

Here's an ex-cop spending 5 years in jail for accidentally violating NJ's requirements while moving.  I had thought we had this case on this very board too.

I'm not saying he didn't break the law.  I'm saying several things: 

1.  These kinds of laws were not targeting people like him. 

2.  There is a lack of proportionality. 

3.  Mexico law enforcement is corrupt. 

4.  We should be doing more on a diplomatic level to bring this kid home.

It is way too simplistic to say he broke the letter of the law so lock him up.  It's much more complicated than that.  Or at least it should be.


Yeah that's the problem though, you're making a huge assumption for #1 about 'people like him' that just doesn't fit the facts.  Driving around with loaded guns, in reach, and hidden under clothing doesn't make 'people like him' look all that good, lol.  In fact, it makes him look down right criminal.  Not to mention the lying.

Welcome back.  Still the same:  Soul Crusher posting every day, his stalkers repeatedly calling him gay every day, the president lying, debt continually increasing, etc., etc.   Smiley


haha...too true.
92  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Marine to remain in Mexican prison on: July 14, 2014, 05:07:02 PM
Dude had a rifle, shotgun, handgun, boxes of ammo...
plates showed up 3 times previously doing this.
Dude tried to escape from prison in Mexico lol...

It doesn't matter what we *believe* because the FACTS are clear here.
He smuggled 3 guns into a very anti-gun country, knowing the law full well.
He went THRU the border crossing, knowing that was highly illegal.

I find it VERY difficult to believe "but but but there were no U-turns before entering another nation" haha.


Yes he lied.  Also, his guns were loaded and within his reach - not legal in CA.

And the only evidence he didn't do this intentionally seems to be his (and his moms) claim.

But, even giving him the benefit of the doubt and buying he didn't do this on purposes, he still needs to serve time for his irresponsible stupidity.

93  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Marine to remain in Mexican prison on: July 14, 2014, 04:26:22 PM
Same analysis.  Laws regarding illegal possession of firearms were not designed to target people like him, nor was prison designed for people like him. 

An absolute waste of resources and something that is contrary to the freedom we enjoy as American citizens. 


Meh...he's right in line with the basic premise.  Too many people acting irresponsibly with guns is what leads to all these stupid gun laws to begin with.

94  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Police State - Official Thread on: July 14, 2014, 04:20:35 PM
typical of you, you seem to always throw the first punch then when you get smacked upside the head you whine about "typical cop mentality" 


It should not 'seem' that way.  I'm seriously not getting your reasoning for the special treatment.  Some things we can agree with...you need to violate traffic laws to catch crooks or no trespassing signs, etc.

But this makes no sense.  In fact, it was me who pointed out Garrity as it applies to all in the public sector, and you're protected from having to incriminate yourself, when you were conflating the two.  And if we agree that we are talking administratively only, then I would think most people would expect you to be held to the same or more stringent standards as anybody else involved in an incident.

95  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Marine to remain in Mexican prison on: July 14, 2014, 04:12:03 PM
I take a more commonsense approach to this stuff.  Laws regarding gun smugglers were designed to deter and punish gun smugglers.  They were not intended to punish people who mistakenly cross the border.  We would never take away someone's liberty for this kind of mistake in the U.S.  There also needs to be proportionality.  Fine the guy, suspend his passport, make him take a geography class, etc., but not indefinite prison in a foreign country.   

We should not allow our citizens to be locked up in a cell for this long.  Even the dumb ones. 

I make an exception for those who intentionally turn themselves over to the enemy (i.e., Bergdahl). 


He's charged with possession, not smuggling so the smuggling laws or purposes are not relevant.

25 years old, combat veteran, more than grown up to know better.  He should've behaved like a fucking adult, especially driving around with loaded weapons.  IMO, he needs to do more time.

We don't need anything fancy.  Hell, if you wanna buy, feel free to take me to Taco Bell and cut in line.
97  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Marine to remain in Mexican prison on: July 13, 2014, 07:52:47 AM
I've driven that part of the border and it is very easy to miss the last U.S. exit and wind up in Tijuana.  I'm sure it's a common mistake.  No way this kid should be locked up for over three months. 



True...he should be locked up for much longer.

This is no different than our argument over the soldier who went into Canada with firearms.

If you're gonna have guns you act and behave like a fucking ADULT.

Know where you are.  Know where you are going.  Know the laws, rules, and regulations of all areas around you.

He can sit in that Mexican shithole which is exactly what he deserves until he grows the fuck up.

Help me out here, I'm trying to figure out if you are playing stupid or your hatred really doesn't allow you to have a civil conversation


Yeah...you're calling me stupid and hateful cause you're trying to have a 'civil conversation'.  Roll Eyes

Typical cop mentality. 

But, we'll cut you some slack since the SCOTUS ripped you a new asshole with your bullshit cell phone argument.

You're asking for a special treatment...one you typically don't afford to others or even victims for that matter (could be good or bad depending).  I'm advocating you be treated with equal footing.  Make sense?

He set no precedent. Are you referring to the execeutive orders? the type bush used almost twice as much?





lol...gotta luv how the Canadian retard rushes to Obama's defense every time.  Is he giving it to you good?

I'm certain by now that you want to be an American so bad it's causing your vag to itch something fierce.

Why did we turn you away?  Because you're dumb?

BTW, quantity is not the issue with the Executive Orders, lol idiot.
