Comment Re:Fundamental right????? (Score 1) 188

Internet access is not a right (go live on a mountain and try to get service), using it is not a right either (blind people and the retarded have a hard time using the internet), the choice to use the internet if you want is a right, the choice to provide said internet service is also a right. The last two are known as freedom.

Trying to make the first two rights is called socialism which is just a prettied up word for people who believe in slavery.

Most Native Americans were killed by disease not invaders. The rest were either killed in wars or were assimilated into the dominant culture.

Every wonder why Mexicans don't look like the Spanish of Spain or the Hispanics of South America, well that was because they interbred with the local Native populations.

There was a cool speech by Bill Whittle when talking about "Whose is it". The Mexican's Claim Texas and the rest of the South West belongs to them. So he listed everyone that "stole it"

1. We didn't steal Texas from Mexico we stole it from the Confederacy. They lost the war the US got Texas.
2. The Confederates got Texas from the Republic of Texas
3. They stole it from the Mexicans.
4. But the Mexicans stole Texas from Spain.
5. Spain got it from France, but they stole it from Spain early.
6. Spain stole it from the Comanches.
7. Who stole it from the Apaches
8. Who stole it from the Pueblo peoples
9. Who stole if from the First View people
10. Who stole it from Plaines View people
11. Who stole it from the Folsom people
12. Who stole it from Clovis man, who incidentally was there first.

His best point was the fact that every group (except for Clovis man) up until the US had to murder and steal the land to acquire it. Yes I am aware of the US history, but we are talking today as in right now. Now if you want a piece of Texas all you have to do is move there and buy some land.

The Native Americans were bastards just like everyone else. The only reason they are painted as the victims is because they lost, not because they were morally better than their conquerers. The Aztecs, Incas, and Mayans were some of the most murderous peoples on the planet before the Spanish wiped them out. The same goes for most of the North American tribes.

Nice try. Last time I checked those evil Christians were targeting people who are murders in their eyes, and just about anyone with a functioning brain. Not infidels like most of the Muslim.

Christian: You abortion doctors killed 130,000 babies. We are going to do some bad stuff, we might even kill a doctor or two or try to burn down an abortion clinic, but mostly just protest.

Muslim: You drew a picture of the Muhammad sucking the cock of a goat. We are going to murder everyone linked to it and then riot and kill non-Muslim people in every major country on the planet by the thousands.

Like there is any comparison in those two things. You are a fuck-tard.

That is only true because they didn't keep statistics about which groups were perpetrating the crimes. That changed in 2012 in the US. We know, at least over the short term, exactly who (as in general groups) is committing all the crime. If we put all black males in prison between the ages of 14 and 25 crime would drop 65% tomorrow. If we did the same but with all Hispanic males in addition to black males that number would jump to 90%. Finally add in the white guys and that number would be up around 99%. Those Asian guys are too busy studying/playing video games to be bothered to commit crimes.

Notorious for it, but not actually linked to it? You are either ignorant or a liar. Which one is it?

Muslims run the full range of colors just like everyone else. Why are you being racist and claiming they are all brown? Most I've met are actually white or near enough. This is traveling in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and going to school in the US.

My answer isn't Fuck them, they are brown, it's fuck them they came from a country that was a shit hole before it became a war zone, and the odds are high enough that they are undesirable to have around because high double digit numbers of them are violent criminals and/or religious extremists.

I have the same opinion of all religions, though you don't see too many Christians blowing up children in the market these days, though I do remember when Ireland was on fire.

Double checked on the requirements on what it takes to become an EMT, yep still is only 2-6 months of training. Advanced EMT training and Paramedic training takes about 2 years total.

Not pooping on the good works you did, just stating the facts. The basic training for EMTs is very short, and training for paramedics is not much longer hence there are a lot of them and why they don't get paid much.

In the US we already have less than 90% of the crime being perpetrated by less than 10% of the population. I can see why they might be upset with a 1% bump nearly made entirely of Muslim males from shit holes and failed states in the Middle East, in their teens and twenties, who are particularly notorious for their bad behavior.

Bahahahahahahahah lived in harmony with the earth and it's native creatures. Wow that is rich! You are pretty ignorant.

Native Americans were responsible for the extinction of nearly every mega fauna (that would be real big land animals) in North America. They had worked their way through everything they could catch or kill causing even horses to go extinct. (Later reintroduced by the Europeans). They didn't know well enough that you have to stop hunting animals and let yourself starve when the critters got scarce just like those evil white people. The only reason the settlers had millions of bison to kill when the headed out west because the Natives were decimated by disease and it reduced the pressure on the animal populations to near zero which in turn resulted in a near explosion of numbers.

It's called natural selection and evolution. I thought they taught that in schools these days. Even without genocide, the more advanced culture will push aside the more primitive and leave it in the dust. (Well that theory held up until modern times with the suicide of Western Civilization.)

You obviously are unaware how little training EMTs have. They know enough to keep you breathing, slow bleeding, and stabilize you for transport and not much more.

There is reason why medics are paid nothing. It's not exactly rocket surgery to become one.

We had the same policy on every military base I've been stationed on. 1 a military EMT had just as much training. 2 The military EMT knows the base. 3 The military EMT did not have to go through security to get to the emergency.

If he can't remember where the chow hall is and can't remember where his bedroom is, exactly how is he going to remember how to use a phone or any other device? Once a person is to this point they need more than just assisted living. It's time for a home.

Personally I am starting to see the humanity in a more brutal time where large land predators picked off the old, the weak, and the sick (and the stupid).

Slowly fading away like that would be hell.

The trouble with money is it costs too much!
