Actually really easy to spread for ISIS with a group of people willing to die for the cause. One person gets infected in liberia on purpose by drinking some infected blood. He then gets his ass to mexico, where 5 to 10 people wait for him to become symptomatic and then use his bliod to infect themselves. They get their asses across the border to our 5 biggest cities where other groups await to infect themselves and then dump infected fluis across the city and infecting the homeless or using needles and then passing them among the drug using population.. Then getting sick and dying themselves.

Bullshit. Saying green tech will help in any of the catastrophic models is like saying pissing on a house fire will put it out. Now, in the non-catastrophic models, green tech can help, but then it also won't be too hard for humanity to adapt to any changes. As such you would never gain the political will needed to implement said tech in India or China thus making the point moot.

if you want people to actually respect your pisition, then you should act like the realities of your position demand. In the case of AGW catastrophism that requires one of three positions. One, push for massive amounts of research into large scale carbon sequestration or other terraforming techniques. Two, call for the extinction of 80% of humanity. Three demand the entire world follow the living standard of a North Korean peasant. Those are your only three options to actually solving the situation. Everything else is just you slapping your dick in peoples faces.

No. Well, you're right about the British actions, as technically speaking the shot heard round the world was fired in defence of the colonists keeping their ammo and powder. You are wrong about the rest. There were plenty if anti-black and anti-poor gun control laws passed post Civil War, the most famous probably being the New York Sullivan Act.

Figure an average 3-4 people per household. Then figure that half the households in the world don't and won't have internet access for the next 5-10 years. Then figure that sooner or later China's gonna actually get smart about their internet censorship and put their entire population behind a NAT anyway(Out of curiosity, why haven't we just done that with an additional 1 number prefix for continent routing rather than this IPv6 shit anyway?)

Sorry, but there were plenty of scientists who denounced Gally as wrong as well. This is because he was a giant fucking asshole to everyone, including his contemporaries, and completely fucking wrong on quite a few subjects, meteors being but one. Had Gally not been such a giant asshole and also decided that snidely insulting the pope was a bad career move, the church never would have put him on trial in the first place, let alone successfully.

Clearly a certain marine needs to take a statistics class. As well as pay attention to trends. Namely the trend of more guns in the US over the past 20 years along with a 49% reduction in homicide rates and a 70%+ reduction in other gun crime rates. Yet more guns per capita are in circulation than ever before in the history of the US.
