      It was a strong storm and it stalled in a bad spot, if it had moved as they normally do we wouldn't be having this conversation, it was a category 4, no new category was required to classify it, it wasn't anything new.

    I bet you were hoping it would take a little longer before this post would seem so naïve and out-of-date.

    At least you admit you've got a dirty mind.

     

     

    Well.....that's what you say.

    You read dirty mags (no wonder you see dirty sex everywhere).  Hmmmm......and you keep invoking Satan. 

    He must be constantly on your mind.  I don't see you....for all I know you're a little minion with little horns, doing your satanic jig.  Well here's to you......

    Exactly. We could project all kinds of negative attributes of each other with questionable evidence and state these projections as though they were fact, just like Trump did when he said Obama was tapping his phones. And we would be lying because we really don't know anything about each other. I'm glad to see you are beginning to understand.

    You're like a sleeping volcano that's just woken  and blowing up all over the place.....your lava oozes everywhere.  I don't know for how long we have to put up with it.  General Discussion section should keep you well-contained. animated-laughing-smiley-emoticon.gif

    Isn't that plagiarized from Penthouse Forum? I take from this you want a place for sex talk?

    Sure but we haven't seen the Hurricanes that were predicted back when Katrina hit. 

    It's funny, anytime the weather is normal to cool, the refrain is weather is not climate. But anytime the weather is not normal CLIMATE CHANGE!!!!!! This spring was  very wet in Southern Ontario CLIMATE CHANGE!!! last Summer there was a pretty significant period of dryness CLIMATE CHANGE!!!! Anytime weather isn't perfect people are looking for reasons to blame the first world, it becomes tiresome. 

    I'm not saying Climate Change isn't a thing, I'm just saying that predictions have been pretty useless so far.

    Climate Change is beyond my control. My carbon footprint is a fraction of those who are telling me that driving to work is killing the planet.

    If someone told you emphatically that recognizing the existence of climate change is not blaming the first world, would you feel differently?

  5. I have found that references to George Soros and paid protesters are a good litmus test to find out if you're debating with someone who is grounded in reality or if they have gone off the deep end into full batshit Infowars land---in which case, the debate is already over.

    I would say the same to you.....Obama was ignorant, and didn't know what he was doing when he withdrew....yet you seem to have supported him anyway! :rolleyes:

    We know that Trump is a rookie as a politician!  Obviously, he was advised by experienced people who knew what was going on!  Look what he accomplished with that summit in Saudi Arabia!  Never did Obama made such an accomplishment as that in the ME.   

    Take a long look back and see where Obama's method has brought the USA! 

    Why do you say I seem to have supported him anyway: smiley face? Is it just because you hope I did because then you would have an argument? I didn't. Sorry. Maybe try the bigger emojis now.

    But it's big of you to admit that Trump doesn't know what he's doing. Too bad his supporters didn't realize that a year or so ago.

    America under Trump means..........going to war with the goal TO WIN!

    TO WIN!

    War isn't a game, folks.  So don't give us that liberal bull about being fair.   Your method of fighting  war, is what's really costing so many lives - military, and civilians!

    But what about the years of tweets saying they should just withdraw from Afghanistan? Are you saying he didn't know what he was talking about then but you supported him anyway?

    But what "method" are you referring to? Are you once again completely unsure of the direction they should go or what's going on but will support your team no matter what without knowing the details?

    Yup, it is getting ugly out there alright, and you can thank G. Soros for that. 

    I've been wanting to get one of those Soros protesting gigs but can only find information on them on batshit-crazy Russia-generated right-wing news sites. Do you have a contact in the real world where I can find out more?

     Shall we now start tearing down statues also of those presidents, uhmm?  What do you have to say to that, eh? 

    That slippery slope arguments are always ridiculous and don't account for the fact that people can make rational decisions. Put simply, gay marriage didn't lead to us marrying dogs after all.

    Uh......we differ with Nazism.    In my books, it's right up there with Communism -  evil.

    I suppose Nazism is to extreme right as Communism is to extreme left.

    The inherent evil of Nazism was not its economic policy but its theories of racial superiority and practice of genocide, which was built right into its philosophy.

    What do you find inherently evil about communism (i.e., not Stalin or Castro other pretend communists, but the political theory of Marxism/communism)?

    I already explained why I made those post.  

     

    Can you repeat? Specifically, why do you feel compelled to make sure everyone knows the Nazi committed the "lesser" crime of second degree murder? Are you trying to rationalize that Islamic terrorism is worse because it was planned in advance? That's the only reason I can figure.

    And you expect to be taken seriously?

    All this does is give another reason for defending freedom of speech. Even of Nazis. Because to fanatics, everyone is a Nazi if they disagree with them. Just as our Turkish member crows with delight whenever some journalist or college professor or human rights people are arrested as "terrorists" so too do people from the Left eagerly label anyone on the right who disagrees with them with the handy all purpose labels of Nazi and racist. So we have to defend the rights of Nazis because the people most strongly attacking them think we're all Nazis anyway.

    And comparing Hitler to Reagan is kind of like comparing the NDP to Stalin, wouldn't you say?

    There have been over 31,500 Muslim terrorist acts since 9/11. Now how does that require exaggeration?

    1275 people were murdered in Muslim terrorist attacks this month alone.

    http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

    But they're not my own group, and as far as we know it's just one guy.

     

    You tripled the number of attacks cited by the clearly unbiased "religion of peace" website and then you ask how you were exaggerating?

    But the right-wingers you defend have not committed just one terrorist attack. They are responsible for the majority of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11 with an average of 300 a year.

    It's interesting to note the hypocrisy of the Left on this issue. A hundred thousand members of one group (Muslims) commit brutal, violent terrorist murder in the name of their ideology over the course of decades, and the Left rushes to embrace that group after every event, proclaiming the group entirely free of any collective guilt in the actions of those particular individuals.

    One member of another group (white supremacist) demonstrating in favour of a confederate statue runs his car over people, murdering one person, and the Left rushes to convict not only all White Supremacists, but the whole far right and anyone else who cares about tradition and history with collective guilt. Hell, they're now yanking down statues of Confederate era soldiers and stomping on them just to spite them all! 

    It's interesting to note the hypocrisy of the Right on this issue. They inflate the number of Muslims who have committed terrorist murder in the name of their ideology so they can better paint all muslims with the same brush. Then when many of their own group commit terrorist murder, they defend them and still whine about being painted with the same brush. Even though nobody is suggesting all conservatives are Nazis like they like to imply all muslims are terrorists. But whiners gotta whine.

    What about physically trying to do so? I think Communists and Marxists - who are a prominent part of the NDP, btw, are every bit as dangerous as Nazis. Their movements are actually responsible for more slaughtered people and more misery than the Nazis. There were a lot of Communist flags and signs flying at the anti nazi demo but nobody seems to care about them.

    You're saying the NDP has slaughtered more people than the Nazis?

    You don't know what premeditated is?

    I can't spoon-feed you.  look it up.

    It means it was planned beforehand.

    Why won't you answer why you feel it's important that that distinction is made in this forum? Is it less heinous a crime to you if he didn't plan it beforehand? Personally, I think he's Nazi scum whether he planned it or not. What do you think?

    Somebody accused Hal of being a nazi supporter just because he said the murder wasn't premeditated.  I responded by saying Hal is right, since the driver is charged with second degree murder.

     

    I don't dispute what was said. I just don't see you and Hal arguing that Islamic terrorism in similar situations might merely be crimes of passion and I wonder why. Why is this guy worthy of that distinction?
