Lots and lots and lots of people died for all kinds of reasons during WWII. Hundreds of thousands for no other reason than that they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. I don't like people being slaughtered senselessly for any reason. Today thousands are dying because they don't believe in the same god the same way some crazy fuckers want them to believe. If you're looking for injustice it's easy to find as it's all around us. I'm sorry if my lack of concern upset you but I am a bit overwhelmed with how much pointless hatred exists in the world to lose sleep over a particular group that was persecuted by Nazis all those many years ago. Claiming that a million were killed just jumped out at me as an incredible claim and I had to research it because I knew it was ridiculous. No, I don't hate gays. Hell I don't really hate any group, not even Muslims. I do hate a few individuals.

More than a million homosexuals? Where do you come up with that number?

This is what wikipedia gives

"Between 1933 and 1945, an estimated 100,000 men were arrested as homosexuals, of whom some 50,000 were officially sentenced.[1] Most of these men served time in regular prisons, and an estimated 5,000 to 15,000 of those sentenced were incarcerated in Nazi concentration camps.[1] It is unclear how many of the 5,000 to 15,000 eventually perished in the camps, but leading scholar Rüdiger Lautmann believes that the death rate of homosexuals in concentration camps may have been as high as 60%."

So we're looking at less than 15,000 dead maybe as low as 3,000. Long way from a million.

While not a fan of homosexuality (I admit I find it strange and disgusting) I feel no particular hatred either. More like indifference. I definetly do not support persecution but the outright lies from proponents of that lifestyle are so fucking outrageous.

The right way is for the President to go to Congress and ask for a declaration of war. We keep fighting police actions instead and police actions by definition shouldn't not be called war. If it was a war we'd have it declared and ramp up to get it over with instead of this death by a thousand cuts stuff we're doing now.

I'm saying that people will always have issues. People hate for all kinds of reasons and as a nation we will always have enemies. A religion that has a major, not minor component, that states "believe the way we do or we'll kill you" is never going to be my friend and I don't give a shit what race or sect or whatever they are. How many times have we tried to be friends with someone and then once our common goal is met or gone they go back to being our enemies? It's an ugly world and to think just because you're nice to people and give them lots of money they'll love you is a deadly fallacy. And yes many times we've been the bad guy, there is way too much of "the end justifies the means" kind of thinking going on.

You can't buy friends. No matter how much money you spread around it ends up with most of it in the hands of the thugs running all these little shitholes and the people still hate us because we don't bow towards Mecca. The NSA have a job to do but they need to clean house by firing everyone there from the top down to minor level administrators. All the idiots in charge should have been fired right after 9/11. Instead of rolling heads we got the fucking "Patriot" act. They aint' patriots they're fucking traitors to the Constitution they swore an oath to. Not one of those sorry fucking cunts got fired! Thousands dead, towers down and nobody got fired much less put in jail for criminal negligence. It's a God Damn outrage.

I find it easy to believe. He's typical of the fucking morons that run the bureaucracy of this nation. War is what happens between nations and criminal activity is what happens when individuals or gangs break the law. This whole thing of calling these thugs terrorists tends to legitimatize them and makes them more effective. Just catch them, throw them in a hole and toss the key away. Enough of all the drama already. Now they've twisted things so that minor criminals serve time like they were mass murderers or something. It's like the terrorists won, they destroyed the entire culture so that you can't even fly from Atlanta to New York without feeling like you're in the old Soviet Union. It feels like you're trying to sneak out plans for a new Red Navy submarine.

I see your point. The problem of course is when you become the criminal. In the future I suspect there will be a lot more restrictions. A lot more and they already have the system coming into place that will insure compliance with whatever they mandate. The reason of course is that in about 8 years or so the government will be bankrupt and when they can't write those checks without printing ridiculous amounts of phony money there will be a lot of people that will suddenly find their monthly check doesn't buy a living, even a meager one. That's the day they will need all this stuff to control a pissed off and hungry populace.

Just the fact that AT&T proposed it is enough to poison the entire proposal. Anything out of AT&T is going to be an attempt to fuck somebody because that's what they truly excel at. After all the taxpayers have done to provide money to build these guys networks and the subsidies they've gotten over the decades it's time for it to end.

And here I thought we were talking about ice. Snow is precipitation, ice is frozen water. Generally snow may or may not melt upon reaching the earth depending on surface temperature. Ice of course is formed by freezing temperatures causing water to freeze. I'm not a climatologist but I do have a general idea of the basics.
