Re: BSA allows gay leaders
Friday, 7:18 PM
in the Lounge forum

To be serious for a moment, I've worked with the UN. The idea that it could be a global government is ridiculous to anyone who has ever seen it in action as asserting that the US Postal Service could take over the world. Anything I've ever been able to find about the Bilderberg Group that had any evidence to support its claims was pretty benign. On the other hand, it seems to be a subject where anyone can just make ...

Yes. I've also heard a bunch of tinfoil hat assumptions about what all of these things are.

Also veteran %u2260 competent. There may be some overlap between the two, yes, but there's a lot of people in the military who just don't get much rifle training (I was a lot more Radar O'Reilly than Rambo for sure), and rifle skills are perishable to begin with. And, events like this don't exactly draw out the most sane, well-adjusted of the community. Apparently, the "guard" who negligently discharged his firearm at a recruiting centre in Lancaster, OH was a ...

LARP is "live action role play". While some of the volunteer guards are competent and their hearts are in the right place, this has attracted a legion of incompetent posers, to the point where the DoD has classed the "guards" as a security risk. As to it being even necessary, I'll let you in on a secret: it isn't. It's a hysterical response.

How is a bunch of dumpy Call of Duty LARPers with lousy trigger discipline "standing guard" outside of recruiting offices not a slap in the face to the armed services, let alone a negligent discharge waiting to happen? Oh. Wait. It already happened. Well...

You (I presume inadvertently) included a few mischaracterizations in that data from which you were tempted to draw a conclusion. New Orleans has the same gun laws as the rest of Louisiana (although since it has one of the most infamously corrupt police forces in the United States, law can be a bit arbitrary in New Orleans) and a vastly higher violent crime rate than the rest of the state. Detroit has the same gun laws as the rest ...

If you're content to clean toilets and pick crops, yes, that'll work. Immigrating legally, even between the US and Canada, is rather more difficult and time consuming.

It's a weird emotional attachment to a bit of mass-produced cloth on both sides. By the by, have you ever tried to move to another country?

If the states where you can't carry concealed are barring you from doing so based upon your race, religion, or sexuality, you just might have a case, since that's the precedent which has been set by Obergefell v. Hodges, Loving v. Virginia, etc. :)

I had it recently related to me that listening to Americans talk about the politics of their country is a bit like listening to 14 year old boys talk about sex. They throw around these terms and concepts but eventually it becomes apparent that they have only the crudest understanding of what these things are or how anything fits together and you just need to wince with sympathy. *wince*

The position being ridiculed is that 1) massacres and/or terrorist acts such as this one are exploited to make political points in favour of gun control, and 2) if he hadn't had a gun he'd have used something else.

>> Too bad nobody is making such a ruckus about the deaths of black people from the hands of other black people. Chicago has seen 197 deaths this year alone. Aren't guns damn near illegal there? But we don't want to talk about that. Let's talk about how racist every white person is and that they're unstable if they own a gun. That violence among the black community is basically ignored by the media actually is a form of ...
