I didn't call you third world I said you are looking third world.
But kinda expect mass killings every few months these days from 3rd world USA.
Ya you did, pri
ck. It's not what you say, it's how you say it. Without tone & inflection, it's hard to take that any other way even if you didn't mean it that way.
Now you have bombs going off in the streets, and really the only reason I brought up Iraq was for comparison. As someone above mentioned, this happens all the time Iraq, but I didn't mention that for that comparison. I mentioned it because every few months you guys seem to be having a crazy show up and kill a bunch of folk. Kinda similar eh.
You literally pulled an Alma there. It wasn't di
ckish, its just confusing when you say you brought it up for comparison but then you didn't.
Military base shootings, Theater shootings, school shootings, bombs going off.
Yet you do nothing about the guns, and for the bombs you just take more personal rights away.
We're doing something
about guns, even if its totally going to be watered down in the Senate. After Oklahoma City the World Trade Center Bombings, we took away the right to buy the materials used in those bombs as easily as they were prior. I agree that the Patriot act was a bit much after 9/11, but we also had a less "even-keeled" President at the time & a congress that wrote him blank checks. I expect security to be tightened for large gatherings after this, other than that, I can't predict what'll happen.
(oh and if anything this is just going to increase the amount of anti-arab, anti-muslim rhetoric in your country regardless if a while christian was responsible or not, they will just suspect home grown islamic terrorism. Whether or not it is true is redundant....that is your country now.)
I don't doubt it, even if I don't think it's right. You think Canadians would behave differently in the same situation though? Fear overrides logic pretty much every time. It doesn't make it right, it makes us human. Upside is, like Patton Oswalt elegantly stated, "when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, The good outnumber you, and we always will."
If anything, that was proven in Boston today. Edited, Apr 16th 2013 4:43am by Omegavegeta
