Yes, the majority of us have also taken philosophy 101 and ethics.
For some of you, then, it doesn't show.
Let me guess... part time adjunct philosophy professor (online). We have another one of you--his name is Kawphy... you'd like him.
Don't say his name, harps! It'll summon him!
Yes. Sorry. Not to take away from this child's grief, but there's a reason we don't let children vote or run for political office. It's because they don't really have the mental capacity or maturity to develop reasonable political positions. Pointing that out may make me terribly heartless, but it's still the truth.
lol and you think scott adams (the guy who writes dilbert) is "good, witty"
Who says anybody was asking her to make policy decisions. Her parents more than likely let her pen that letter as a way to allow her to grieve and perhaps get some of her own anger and frustration at her brother's death out in a way, that I think is probably a very healthy outlet for it. I posted that link because it releated to the overall story in THIS thread, not because I do or do not endorse what this young child wrote in her letter. And yes, in MY opinion your pretty heartless for your opinion.
why did she write it to obams? that guy is already so on board! (meaning he's on a surfboard and he's ridin' the wave of this whole thing all the way into shore)
also coober's looking skeletal these days. what's wrong with coober?
The people who thought her letter to President Obama regarding gun control policy was worthy of being reported on, apparently.
Yes, they were reporting her story because they think she is qualified to makes laws and not because it's a loving, heartfelt story.
Weird how out of all the grief, love, and togetherness to have come out of this event, the "loving, heartfelt" thing that attracted the attention of some people happens to be a letter to a politician they support advocating a law they support. You'd almost think they cherry-picked it because it helps them push their political agenda.
But of course, that would go beyond simply politicizing a tragedy to straight-up exploiting a grieving child for ideological advantage. And anyone who would do that would be a real slimebag.
you know i really wish people who oppose fascism would stop bringing up the holocaust. STOP POLITICIZING THE TRAGEDY YOU MONSTERS
Somebody's cherry picking, but somehow given other Conn. related stories I've seen in the media this week, I don't think it's actually them.
This isn't the only thing that's attracted the attention of they media. They've shown quite a lot of stories regarding this.
Seems you're cherry picking to fuel your own conspira**** notions.
Annnnnd we've reached Godwin. Which is traditionally where I bail on threads.
Considering you're the one who brought up Nazis earlier either in this thread or the gun control one, don't let the door hit you in the caboose on the way out.
thanks for linking to the wikipedia page on godwin's law im sure nobody would have picked up on a tired internet meme from the 90s otherwise
The results of a small group given weapons training, and then observed under fake attack:
For something so commonplace, you have a pretty deep misunderstanding of it. That's about stigmatizing an opposing viewpoint or user by way of comparison to Nazi ideology. Rogue didn't do anything of the sort. He contrasted the public post-war response to the Holocaust with the public response to this shooting in order to highlight the absurdity of the "don't politicize it" argument. At no point were Nazis even germane to the comparison.
Booooooooring. Won't you play with us some more?
Because there are so many loving, heartfelt stories about the right to bear arms that they could have picked.
They just had a moment of silence and bell-ringing in Newtown. Rain was chucking it down - seemed appropriate.
So when is the NRA going to make an announcement? I've heard from some that they're doing it today?
I think within the hour.
