    Trying to bypass the legal process, creating an expensive decade long fiasco and losing public sentiment by aiding in the suppression of a recently conquered people was rational? How?

    Boston things

    Hello everyone! I'm going to be doing some traveling in Massachusetts and Connecticut on family business for the next week or so, and though my weekdays are tied up, the first weekend in Boston MA is...
  3. Oh, now you start asking logical questions about...

    The difference? One is attempting to liberate victims of a concentration camp from racists, oftentimes who are literal (Neo-)Nazis.

    The other is killing people for being gay/brown/women/trans and...

    You don't quite get it. No one approved when "a leftist", for instance, opened fire at a bunch of congressman on a baseball field a couple years ago, genuinely wounding six people and endangering...

    I grew up in the western United States, and this is the first political event I have a conscious memory of. Obviously I was too young to understand the implications at the time aside from "everyone...

    Also, the TMT has 1.4 Billion dollars behind it just in terms of direct investment, let alone the legal and police services they've been receiving from the US Government for free. If that's "far...

    But they do have the coercive power of the state behind them. Many of these protesters are going to end up behind bars. If this goes like things did in Dakota territory last year, many with grievous...

    Because his attack failed.[/QUOTE]

    Why? I admit that military strategy is not my forte, but if I were going onto a campus with the intent of killing people, my first shot would be aimed at the...
  9. Lol! You would be the first to call that...

    It wouldn't even take all that many people. A small force of snipers could play havoc with the guards without being a risk to those being held. Half your force takes one shot and retreats. The...
  10. You say that despite the clear evidence of the...

    Attacking the facility is very unlikely to injure the owners, and far far more likely to injure those in the facility, including both the residents and the officers.[/QUOTE]

    You say that despite...

    No, they are not giving up, nor should they. I'd be up there with them myself if I were on the islands right now.


    They were never consulted to begin with. You want someone to believe that it...
  12. Models and theories aren't the same thing though,...

    Models and theories aren't the same thing though, both of these terms already have a definition.
  13. Yes. Because I've actually talked to folks who...

    Yes. Because I've actually talked to folks who are in this situation. Have you? They are constantly monitored, constantly in danger. Their neighbors see them as baby factories to produce new...

    I've never seen the book. I made up the bit about appendices.

    I thought we were joking here. Sorry I struck a nerve.[/QUOTE]Then I similiarly apologize for taking you too straightforwardly....
  15. It's not the means I would have chosen, but I'm...

    I'm not silent. And I am not weeping any tears for anyone "terrified" because someone lobbed a few molotov cocktails at a for-profit concentration camp before getting predictably shot to death. Are...

    No he wasn't. He was born in the British colony and moved to another British colony.[/QUOTE]

    Probably why the appendix shows all those abstinence positions.[/QUOTE]

    I take it you "read" the book by flipping through all the pictures and leaving it at that? It is a religious work, not just...
  19. Ah yes, focus on the part of my post that's easy...

    Meh. If you can't take me for what I write and must pretend I mean something else I didn't write you can fuck right off.[/QUOTE]

    Ah yes, focus on the part of my post that's easy to respond to.

    And in the meantime they get what they want - they live in the US and have opportunity to make some anchor babies. [/QUOTE]

    Alexander Hamilton[/QUOTE]

    Hamilton was an immigrant himself, who argued on the Congress floor that the new Republic ought to have a king, and whose arrangement of the department of the treasury...

    Why? We're not voting in England's elections, we're voting in ours. What the hell do we owe to a crusty European power that opposed our own freedom, as opposed to a fellow revolutionary state that...

    They ARE invading as we speak. Not all invasions are armed.[/QUOTE]

    I'm not too worried about the great Guatemalan takeover, but even if I were, making an enemy of Mexico will do nothing to stop...
  24. There's no need to make anyone do anything;...

    So, yes, you do think Americans should have to learn Spanish rather than require immigrants to learn English.


    Only because we have so many illegals who refuse to learn English.[/QUOTE]

    Plenty of Americans do know Spanish already. It hasn't hurt them any. In fact, bilingual workers are far more financially successful than their monolingual peers.
