    And the progressives who buy these lies hook, line and sinker wonder why some of us are "skeptical" with respect to the chronically inaccurate climate models from agencies funded by progressive governments. 

    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.

    You can thank the government run public educational system for dumbing down our kids, enslavening them to MORE government and handouts. This was all understood and guaranteed to happen. Raise the minimum wage, you lose jobs, now we are gonna see entire job sectors erased. Robots don't need maternity leave, health insurance, complaint cards and safe spaces. Big Government is causing massive waste, fraud and commerce and business pro's refuse to take it in the rear end.

    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?

    who said anything about banning all immigrants? and which values are you referring to that suggest that we should allow anybody and everybody in and disregard border security

    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 need to be violently dealt with as soon as possible. I don't believe that, nor has there been justification for that view. 

    How about these refugees? How many are we talking? Why? Are they actually a threat? What can we do to mitigate the threat? The dehumanizing language thrown around about these people is disgusting. Hordes of invaders? Barbarians? Savages? 

    The current proposed "solution" is to shut down the borders and shoot any of them if they get close. It's cowardly.

    'unqualified and possibly unjustified' is an opinion, nothing more. the rest of this is nonsense since it was already stated "without impeding on people's rights"

    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. 

  5. 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 a giant wall along the U.S. border because we're afraid? Swinging our ***** and making snap decisions based on gut instinct works when you're an animal, but not when deciding policy that costs billions or trillions of dollars and impacts millions of people.

    Can you clarify what the crock of **** is, as you see it?  

    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.

    and yet four times more people die of drug overdoses than from firearms

    https://mises.org/blog/dea-releases-new-drug-overdose-death-figures-guns-safer-prescription-drugs

    ****, alcohol related deaths and non alcoholic vehicular deaths FAR outweigh homicides and accidents with firearms and yet you don't seem to advocate the banning of drugs or alcohol or express any concern for your safety in driving

    furthermore, if crime rates would plummet with legalization, the disparity in deaths would be far greater

    and not to be rude, you are delusional if you think organized crime couldn't have weapons manufacturing set up within a few months. or that the two companies based in Mexico that already manufacture arms couldn't expand their operations quite easily. or that they wouldn't funnel in arms from other countries to create a black market

    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 ****.

    You shouldn't be so harsh on WFW. Him and the rest of the republicans were keeping quiet on Bernie, because they wanted to damage HRC and where secretly hoping that he would beat HRC. Now that HRC is going to win, all of the anti socialism stuff they were planning for bernie is going to waste. He is just trying to get out his best material at once. He should start becoming more coherent once it is out of his system. 

    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. 

  9. 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.

    you didn't answer my question

    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. 

  11. 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.

    and you don't think that the cartels wouldn't just start acting as suppliers? 

    how is it that the key to stopping the illegal drug trade is drug legalization but somehow banning guns wouldn't turn into the same situation?

    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.

    You're right, no one has said it.  What, you want the two day work week?  They don't have beer, I''m out.  You act as though I'm posting false information here?  If you're short on money I'll pay your passage there for you.  

    Someone care to translate this gibberish?

    What do things cost in socialist paradise now?

    Hamburger $170

    Movie tickets $875

    Hotel room  $6,900 a night

     

    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.
