I take this to mean Twitter will soon ban the SJW's who like to doxx people right?

Inevitable when Islamic societies and governments treat women like property. Nasser needs to rise from the dead or something. It won't get better, but the PC left won't admit it.
129  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 'Art of the Deal' ghostwriter regrets helping Trump, calls him 'Sociopath' on: July 19, 2016, 01:11:07 am
while not unitlateral it is close to it. The president can order a strike for any reason he wants, but it needs to be seconded by the SecDef and in theory POTUS could just keep firing SedDefs until he finds an acting one who will agree with him (kind of like that night Nixon fired the AG and asst AG until he found one who would fire the special prosecutor). The cabinet could stop him if they could organize and agree to remove him under the 25th amendment, but they would have to do that before the missiles started flying.

But that's not exactly a realistic scenario. If one madman in the Oval really tried that it could be one of the few things that could trigger a military coup in America.

"Get's the nuclear codes!!11!"

Can we stop with this meme? The President doesn't have the unilateral authority to utilize America's nuclear arsenal.

Wow, I can't imagine how Cory would do in a world were half of the people here actually liked Erdogan Tongue.

My head would probably explode.
132  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: On-Going Military Coup in Turkey on: July 18, 2016, 11:19:35 am
It was very depressing to read this thread and see the low value that democracy and respect for human life have here (especially because many comments came from red avatars). I am no fan of Erdogan (I really hate him) but I can't support a coup and specially a coup from an army with that background (secular but with no respect for democracy or diversity and very nationalistic).

And sincerely, the concept of "greater good" is gross and disturbing.

So you wouldn't support a coup from the Germany Army in 1935? Because you "can't support a coup"? Especially from "an army with that background"?

All because something is extralegal doesn't mean it's bad. Life isn't that simple.

And what, exactly, was that "greater good", may I inquire? Or am I liable to torture for being so impertinent to ask?

What is the "greater good" varies from person to person, and from ideology to ideology. But in this case I was referring to my belief that it is for the best that Turkey remain a secular state, even if we have to break a few eggs to make the omelet.

In what ways is Gulen worse than Erdogan? 

It doesn't seem like any of the Erdogan voters are interested in answering you.

135  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: On-Going Military Coup in Turkey on: July 17, 2016, 10:15:08 pm
Have you checked how many people they killed and tortured in the process?

Sometimes these things have to be done for the greater good. Life isn't always pretty and things aren't always perfect.
136  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Recep Tayyip Erdogan on: July 15, 2016, 10:24:38 pm
I was honestly hoping the coup would succeed, but alas it seems not to be so.

While I agree with her sentiments, it's inappropriate for a Justice to comment on electoral politics.

Tom Ridge.

The background checks are good, but other than that, definitely not. Can we make that the only thing on the ballot measure?
140  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Scott Brown: Warren should take DNA test to prove her Native heritage on: June 29, 2016, 11:50:27 pm
Warren is from Oklahoma and, if memory serves, claimed to be like one-sixteenth Cherokee or something. There is no reason to believe she doesn't (or didn't) genuinely believe this to be the case--indeed, there's no evidence that I know of that it isn't the case. Clearly she wasn't claiming to be more Indian than that. She's, I assume, perfectly aware that she's blonde with blue eyes.

True, but I think people got the vibe that she like that white blonde girl everyone knew in High School who was "like totally Cherokee".

Cersei is officially bae.

Her getting total vengeance was on of the most satisfying things I've seen from a TV show in a long, long time.

But I do wonder how Littlefinger will react to the new situation. Jon Snow is King in the North and Sansa won't marry him. His plan is unraveling and he has to do something. Maybe allying with Cersei and crushing Jon Snow/Sansa is on the table? Robin doesn't get along with Sansa in the show so that could be a factor.

Of course he did. Modern far-right and right-populist parties and politicians (Drumpf included) are playing the exact same role communists did in the 1950s.

All in all the result was a big win for Father Kremlin.
144  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UK 'Brexit' Referendum on the EU on: June 23, 2016, 10:44:47 pm
And the UK votes to leave....

The one who didn't try to start a nuclear war

*facepalm*

Voted Obama though for reasons Roger Waters went over.

Goodness gracious, the potential End of the WorldTM if the Kim regime falls is not the problem, the fact that the Kim regime hasn't fallen is the problem.

It's just too easy to say this stuff. There has to be some sort of proof to substantiate their claims.

Don't let the SJW's on college campuses hear you say that.

You would use an escape hatch to get out of a debate, wouldn't you?
