And they wonder why no one likes them. The Muslims in Europe are the guests of the local people, and should learn to behave as such.
127  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UNICEF; 1 in 10 women sexually assaulted by age 20 on: September 05, 2014, 12:24:26 pm
I don't think we should consider cyberbullying in sexual assault statistics.

Cyberbullying can be considered a form of sexual assault.

Almost anything "can" be considered assault. It's about bringing some common sense to this equation. Being called fat on Facebook isn't sexual assault.

Is there any evidence that this happened as she said? No?

We don't just take every word a complaining witness or alleged victim says as Gospel. That's not how it works. It sucks this is what it took for her and others to realize this. There is a due process procedure and it annoys me how people are willing to handwave it entirely as soon as a case that touches their emotions comes up.

I know some people who work in law enforcement. And the thing is they have to scrutinize these cases because, and I know this will rub people the wrong way, but these kinds of things are made up all the time. Most of the rape accusations they get eventually turn out to be fabricated out of personal spite before they even make it to court. Usually nobody is charged with anything.

I don't get this mentality that whenever someone is on trial for rape we automatically believe everything to alleged victim says and assume the accused is guilty until proven innocent.

Would be such a waste of time and idiotic, it's not going to happen no matter what Ted Cruz says.
130  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Glenn Beck: Hillary will win in 2016 on: September 04, 2014, 08:42:12 am
A broken clock is right twice a day. This appears to be one time when Glenn Beck is right.
131  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Morality of working on campaigns for HP politicians? on: September 03, 2014, 07:16:47 pm
It's fine, so long as you are using it as a stepping stone to some kind of greater good.
132  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Opinion of this statement on: September 03, 2014, 07:16:01 pm
More like, if you landlord made a commitment to you upon hiring that he would pay for all utilities and then suddenly decided cable was no longer a utility and dropped it while keeping rent at the same rate.
133  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Who is guilty of felony murder in these scenarios? on: September 03, 2014, 07:15:00 pm
The second example doesn't even make sense. Neither of them is guilty of murder obviously. I don't see how dealing drugs to someone could in any way link you to them killing someone in self-defense.

135  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Swedish artist sentenced for 'racist' art on: September 03, 2014, 05:19:28 pm
I always thought that those European speech bans and bans on symbols were absurd.
136  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: al-Shabab on the ropes on: September 03, 2014, 05:16:52 pm
Good. Crush them and show no mercy.
137  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: State Representative to Utah Legislature: hospitals can be dangerous.... on: September 03, 2014, 05:08:27 pm
What a moron.
138  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Sen. Gillibrand: I was sexually harassed by men in Congress on: September 03, 2014, 05:07:58 pm
I think she would have said the names if they were Republicans. I bet they're Southern Democrats.

Probably not even. It would be a "breach" of sorts and other Senators would have a hard time trusting her in the future. I would think the milieu in the Senate is that these kinds of things are handled "in-house".

Keep in mind that the claims would be denied and can't really be substantiated anyways. It would backfire.
139  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which 2016 GOP presidential candidate's dad is more racist? on: September 02, 2014, 10:07:37 pm
Ted Cruz's dad, hands down.
140  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: BREAKING: American forces bomb ISIS targets in Iraq on: September 02, 2014, 10:02:02 pm
The UK should join in on the bombing after they execute David Haines.

As should France. An international effort will be required to defeat the Islamic State. I'm glad to hear reports that Iranian air units have begun giving some close air support to Iraqi forces.

This is golden. The more the merrier.

142  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Ukraine Crisis on: September 02, 2014, 10:25:41 am
One interview-like question-

Where does Putin see Russia in 2024? What does he want the map to look like?
I am probably partially wrong in my analysis, but I would assume that Putin would like to see Russia absorb all of Ukraine, Estonia, Georgia and Poland over the next decade or so.

I don't think the Russians could ever annex/clientize Poland without a major war. Replace Estonia and Poland with Belarus and Kazakhstan (The Kazakhs being puppetized, not annexed).
143  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Germany starts arming the Kurds in Iraq on: September 02, 2014, 07:56:02 am
Nice figures ... on paper.

You should never mess with Russians, because they are amongst the most brutal fighters known out there.

Russia could move easily towards Berlin, without NATO not even knowing what hit them, if they want.

Yeah..... no.
144  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of the Great Society on: September 01, 2014, 10:39:53 pm
I'd you even think it belongs in the same sentence as the New Deal, you're mistaken.

That's beside the point.
145  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of the Great Society on: September 01, 2014, 06:57:23 pm
Massive FS
146  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Germany starts arming the Kurds in Iraq on: September 01, 2014, 05:27:18 pm
Now if only they would start arming the Ukrainians....
147  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Purely Capitalist Utopia vs. Purely Communist Utopia on: August 31, 2014, 08:37:01 pm
Purely communist, and it's the furthest thing from a difficult choice.

Jews, right?

Yes, as should everyone else.
150  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pres. Obama Planning Executive Order on Immigration on: August 30, 2014, 02:04:24 am
Yay!  Thank you President Obama for protecting these poor people who just want to have some opportunity!  I can't wait to see the racists throw their usual hissy fit.  It's funny how the GOP likes to say racism is dead as they exploit it for votes.

Yes! This might be the second best thing Obama does in his Presidency. The first being giving health insurance to millions of American who otherwise would've went uncovered.

I can't wait!
