    So these crazy religious hooligans are going to stop trying to install Islam as the national world religion just because the NSA starts collecting phone records on suspected terrorists who make calls overseas to other suspected terrorists or questionable suspects…?

    Not that they’d stop, but the point is well taken.

    Let’s play my favirote game, where we quote old people that lived over 200 years ago and take their quotes as commandments. You think our so-called liberties in the Constitution are being exterminated? Do me a favor faggot, take some valium and shoot yourself before you give me a peptic ulcer.

    You think that calling people you don’t know a “faggot” somehow makes your argument more convincing? Don’t bother shooting yourself, you’re not worth the cost of the lead.

    Yeah, we Americans are *so* oppressed.

    Yes, this is definitely what the terrorists want. No, not millions of dead Americans, but Americans listening to other Americans make phone calls.

    Please.

    Actually, I think it’s a reference to the fact that, in the first couple years after 9-11, no Republican could shut their mouth about “The terrorists hate freedom” or “The terrorists are jealous of our freedom” or the whopper “If we sacrifice our freedoms, the terrorists win”. Of course, those platitudes were quickly forgotten once the republicans figured out that the only way to “fight” terrorism is by attacking the Americans and that freedoms must be sacrificed for our ? (still haven’t figured out what you folks are fighting for if not freedom… little flags? Crying bald eagles? Christianity as… Read more »

    The terrorists do not hate “freedom.” What they hate is Western civilization, not “freedom.” We only think they do because we equate our way of life as the definition of freedom. And what “freedoms,” exactly, have you lost, Alec? And you might want to answer quickly since we all know that the Gestappo is on the way to house right now to apprehend you for spreading this propaganda. And “collecting phone records,” doesn’t mean they’re listening to your every freaking phone call. Give me a break. More than likely, what they do is check your records, see where you were… Read more »

    *cough* habeus corpus *cough* separation of powers *cough* indefinite detainment without conviction *cough* Flying Mantis Strip, you people have lost the freedoms that make every other freedom possible. Sure, it hasn’t all gone downhill yet, but all the protection is gone. At this point, US politicians are on the honour system not to turn you into a freaking dictatorship. Willing to trust in that? Because the people who invented habeus corpus and separation of powers sure as hell weren’t, from their own personal experience. The problem with you Americans is that you’ve had too many generations of relative comfort with… Read more »

    Caio, First of all, don’t tell me that I don’t see the values of my freedom. I know all too well the priceless value of it all. I see what you’re saying, and I do agree to a certain point, but don’t even begin to say that all Americans are like that. Fuck you. I’ve been to Iraq and seen firsthand the chaos there, so don’t tell me what I do and don’t appreciate. Again, fuck you. Secondly, in reference your argument that we have lost the “freedom that makes every other freedom possible, that simply doesn’t make logical sense.… Read more »

    If You’re Happy And You Know It – Bomb Iraq
    If you cannot find Osama,bomb Iraq.
    If the terrorists are frisky,
    Pakistan is looking shifty,
    North Korea is too risky,
    Bomb Iraq.

    Funny how when you have a country run by fascist religious fanatics who like to blow sh*t up to further their political agenda they’re immediately labeled as terrorists… unless the country is ours. Let’s hear it for fundamentalist Christian America!

    Religion of any kind is a man made prison designed to control and exploit people and limit their freedom. Christians might let you practice another religion (as long as their God is mentioned on our money and in the Pledge of Allegiance), drink (except for when they passed prohibition), let women have a voice (but only after 1920 – not even 100 years yet – and still not allowed by the church to have an abortion), but really what is the difference? Every religion wants you to believe in an invisible man that will destroy you if you don’t love… Read more »

    That’s a nice argument, Flying, and I’m sure you’d get an A+ in philosophy class, because it has nothing to do whatsoever with observed reality. Let me explain to you, Flying, the type of dictatorship which is not only the most common in the modern world. The type you’d find in Zimbabwe for example. I’ll use an example I’m familiar with, Salazar-era Portugal. You see, during the Salazar years, Portugal was a free and open democracy with fair elections, separation of powers, rule of law, and it didn’t even have the death penalty *on paper*. It just happened to be… Read more »

    True. They’re both fun back n’ forths to watch. We could always combine the two and talk about how religion hasn’t put out an upgrade in centuries and politics keeps crashing because its kernel is corrupted.

    If you don’t want them to listen to your conversation (and you’re not that special sorry, they WON’T listen to your conversation) so bad then you’re obviously doing something wrong your self.

    Or maybe you’re just too idealistic, and theres no place for that here.

    Oh and Caio: On the Brazilian Military Regime, I think it was better off having some people getting shot at and having some security (crime wasn’t THIS intense here back then) then having Corrupt politicians washing money like theres no tomorrow into exterior bank accounts and literally bending the country over and fucking it. Not to mention the deterioration of the public systems such as health, the police, and even road paving that has happened in the major metropolitan areas. Bush is not a dictator either. The US works on a checks and balance system and the GOPS haven’t been… Read more »

    Sure, the Islamists spent a few million – and the US spent trillions, almost bankrupting our economy. They lost thousands of uneducated street urchins, we lost thousands of highly trained professionals. They used IEDs that cost them a few dollars, we used cruise missiles and smart bombs that cost millions a pop. Before 9/11, Islamic fundamentalism was small news, now it’s talked about every day worldwide and thousands are signing up to become martyrs for Allah. Now it takes hours just to get on a plane and your shampoo is confiscated, all because some Islamist just TALKED about making a… Read more »
