  1. Except the actual translation of his quote was: "But one must say clearly: We distribute the climate policy de facto the world's wealth. That the owners of coal and oil, which are not excited, is obvious. You have to free ourselves from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has to do with environmental policy, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole to almost nothing." Again, ******** climate deniers who will accept anything presented to them to back up their politically motivated denial of facts.
  2. Norway, Sweden, and Finland all have government run educational systems, better pay do to collective bargaining (nearly everyone belongs to a union), better benefits, and all workers are guaranteed 25 paid vacation days on top of the 16 work-free holidays a year. Yet they score higher than us in educational scores, average wages, debt compared to GDP, with higher economic upward mobility, and less corruption. How can they do it, but we can't?
  3. So what happens when the robots become better than any minimum wage employee?
  4. He's saying they technically "appropriated" more from black culture than Justin.
  5. Snake. Throwing money blindly at an ineffective wall isn't doing anything for border security. No one is for disregarding border security, but better solutions to illegal immigration need to be thought of than just building a big wall and pointing a bunch of guns at the border. We need to start asking why. How many are coming in? Why are people coming in? Why are they choosing to do it illegally? Just because they do it illegally, are they a threat? How much of one? The current proposed options act as if all illegals are an immediate and major threat that nee
  6. Well then if you want to ban all immigrants from entering this country, because you believe letting a single one is a realistic threat to your safety, how about actually quantifying the threat and justifying why we should sacrifice our values before doing it.
  7. Focus people. My greater point is that simply demanding action, even at the expense of principles and law, because you feel an unqualified and possibly unjustified threat to your safety, is a senseless road to go down. What's next? Are we going to start violating international and evem our own laws by torturing people whenever we feel threatened...? Oh wait. Maybe we should start assassinating Americans with no due process whenever we feel threatened by them...? Oh wait. Where does this end? Do we start blindly throwing billions of dollars at an ineffective and poorly thought out plan to build
  8. The "right to safety" is arbitrary and non-existent. It has no definition, and advocating the ban of immigrants because "I have a right to safety" could be used for advocating the banning of guns, cars, and so on, because I am much more likely to get hurt by one of those than I am an immigrant.
  9. I'm still genuinely amazed at the cognitive dissonance it takes to bash Hillary but to support someone like Trump. He is literally proof that there's a large number of people who wave the conservative banner that literally have no principles whatsoever.
  10. People who overdose are doing it to themselves, which isn't the case with guns. Anyways... I AM NOT ADVOCATING we ban firearms. I am saying that the right to "safety" as stipulated by the federal government is a crock of ****.
  11. Again, besides the point I was making. I'm not actually advocating the banning of all weapons. I do disagree with how it would go, but I'm not supporting it.
  12. We should get him a board where he can just blast all of that out of his system without stinking up the place... Oh wait, that's rival central.
  13. Shh child. If you want to comment, ask for permission, but only before you read and spend some time processing first.
  14. The AK type rifles they buy are coming from the US. They aren't buying original Russian made AKs. The vast majority of guns they use are bought in the US legally and smuggled across the border. So again, they don't have the means the come in and fill the market. This is all besides the point. The point was that the right to "safety" is bogus, and that banning all immigrants based on that idea is a pile of fail at based, because statistically I have far more to fear from an American with a gun or car than any terrorist from the Middle East.
  15. Didn't know the state owned the industry in Sweden. Who would've known that that there is no difference in policy between Norway and Venezuela. Do you need me to draw you a chart?
  16. Again, because the cartels can't create massive gun manufacturing plants to replace U.S. made weapons, which is what they rely on. You can grow weed and an amateur chemist and replicate some harder drugs, but they aren't going to be pumping out semi-automatic pistols. And again, the point was safety, and drugs aren't near as threatening to me as guns are. We could replace guns with cars here and my point would still stand.
  17. I find it interesting that the neo-nuts of this board resort to googling some vaguely related article to the subject and doing some copy-paste any time they are reduced to inane gibberish by being questioned on the underlying assumptions and views their comments assume. If it isn't narrative driven, they lose focus. This is probably why they typically rely on a pundit for their news, as they have a hard time working out the nuance of a topic on their own without the guiding voice of a media figure.
  18. And we're talking about safety by the way. John Doe getting high on Alabama Kush isn't a threat to me, while John Doe with a closet full of firearms and a slightly special son deciding now is the time to cleanse society is.
  19. The cartels get the guns from us. We don't make them, then they start running out of guns and ammunition.
  20. It would work because we, the United States, are the supplier of the weapons, not cartels in South America.
  21. Manufacturing, selling, owning, etc. Mass confiscation and destruction of all firearms to ensure "safety."
  22. Still waiting on the first person on this board who has ever wanted to emulate Venezuela. So I'm going to assume this is like RC, where you're just posting **** because you like reading your own posts.
