LOL

Stewie thinks the "surviving a bear encounter" thread is about ursine threats.

Don't you love debating with people who haven't got the slightest clue?

Ravens are cool, but that doesn't excuse their attitude.

They would fit in well here.

While reading through the thread I noticed a post by Ron Anderson that indicated England and Wales have high 'crime rates', amongst the top 11 in the world.....

An interesting statistic which reveals just how dangerous it is living here in Blighty. So dangerous in fact that the Total Number of Gun Related Deaths in the UK (Not just England and Wales) was a mighty 146, (the number of gun related murders was 39) that huge 146 number includes murders, accidents, suicides etc. which works out at 0.23% per 100,000 population.

In the same year in the US the Total Number of Gun Related deaths was a modest 32,163 which is 10.3% per 100,000 population.

Hmmm,

Jim: Please take the trouble to note that I start off civil & attempt to keep it civil when responded to in kind.

RON ANDERSON and anyone else who is interested in my comment about Ronnie's suggestion that we massacre 300 million + Muslims: Please check out the entire thread dated 0ct. 22, 2014 and titled "The Ottawa Shootings". It's not an extremely long one, so please read these comments with an analytical eye. Now does it appear that one of Ron's postings may have, uh, disappeared?

Judge for yourselves.

By the way, Toker villain - what profound insights did I miss by not checking out that thread? Are these facts relevant to this thread like the ones posted on the American Bar Association's web site, which I would assume are accurate enough to be considered legally admissible in any argument pertaining to the gun debate?

Edit:

Toker villain - as a matter of fact I had checked out the Surviving a Bear Encounter thread, which included video of a black bear's bluff charge.
I assumed that was what you were referring to. Now, again, what is your point?

My point, Stewie, is that you haven't got a clue. The point of the thread was to note that the police in this country have been so steeped in the polarizing culture of us versus them that it has been resulting in so many police abuse incidents that, should we not alter the course, then we could slip into a totalitarian state.

One of the first things Hitler did when he took power was to disarm the citizenry. Yeah sure, it could never happen here. (I bet a lot of germans said that too.)

In Europe the paranoid jews went to New York (like my grandfather in 1939) the ones who weren't paranoid went to the camps (like some of my other relatives).

I am planning to live on hundreds of acres with a few survivor types and great self sufficiency. Our guns will be business assets, and you already know what you'll have to do with my cold dead finger.

Once again I thank providence that you can't vote here, but feel free to sputter on,...

You think that it is so far reaching? Americans are idiots who can easily be guiled into voting for a "law and order" President who promises prosperity as a result. That is, those that DO vote, because most don't (and in my book have no right to grouse).


And screw you flip flop! Even if you misspell words you are a bigot. Did you read where my family members were killed? Cousins I never had?
I can easily trump Godwins law with Santayana;


"Those that ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it's mistakes"


Go back under your bridge you maladjusted weasel.

Toker villain: Sorry to hear about the loss of your relatives in the Holocaust.

That said, I can assure you that I (and most Canadians) haven't the least trouble keeping up to date on events in the U.S., and we also have a few of the same problems up here.

As Churchill said "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all of the others", I am in complete agreement with him. These are troubled times pretty well everywhere, and the only way that I can see for things to get better, especially in the U.S., is for those that DO vote to do everything within their power to not only get their disaffected brethern out to perform their democratic duties but also to make every possible effort to make sure that their choice of a candidate is carefully considered.

It is the duty of all citizens of a Democracy to do no less than the above.

Having said that, I think it is a terrible idea for you to think that forming some kind of libertarian Eden is the solution to the problem of a dealing with trigger happy cops. Here's the inevitable outcome of that kind of attitude spreading: total anarchy, and the slaughter of uncounted innocents. Do you sincerely believe that a more heavily armed group of others with a different set of beliefs would hesitate to annihilate you and your friends if they had the least interest in acquiring your assets?

Really.

Democracy is sick, but it can be cured if the true patriots do everything within their power to cure it.

BWAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!~!!!!!

Hey Stewie , now I like you.

You are funny AND a Churchill fan!
How many bios of him have you read?
You do realize that he defended himself with a broomhandle Mauser, killing at least 3 men in close quarter battle?

Here's where you go off to the vanishing point on your Marxist rails.

Libertarian, really classical liberal philosophy, is grounded in the reality of the unperfectability of human nature and the fact that concentration of power ALWAYS! leads to it's abuse.


There is no "libertarian Eden"

Only "progressives" believe they can force everyone back into the garden. It always fails no mater how many they eventually exterminate to achieve their "noble" ends.
