Comment: Re:What is an "AIDS denialist"? (Score 1) 268

Her child, Eliza Jane Scovill died from AIDS-related complications on May 16, 2005. Christina Maggiore died from AIDS-related complications on December 27, 2008. I am wondering, if the idea is dangerous, and the propagandists of that idea literally cause death, can we shut them up for public safety sake? Or sue them into oblivion and charge them with endangering the public?

but one has to remember that there are such things as ethics. Just because a sick idea came to your mind one has to remember that it might be quite unethical to unleash it on the world. Hitatchi being an electronics company did it for business and money sakes hoping to capitalize on various businesses in Japan or for example on outsourced remote employees. But they should have known it is wrong. Thanks, Hitatchi. I used to own a TV from you few years ago, a VCR many years ago, and number of other items. Never again will I ever buy your products.

I don't mean to imply that I am an opponent of the theory of evolution... But why is that many of those who are either atheists or believers in evolution (deniers of intelligent design) are so eager to embrace the concept of an the aliens causing life on Earth? (I've read theories about a life alien DNA landing on Earth, aliens artificially putting life cells or DNA on the planet)? After all, to those atheists, what is the difference between an alien cooking Primordial Soup vs God cooking Primordial Soup?

It is a lot more complex than that. One can not define governing philosophies in a single-dimensional space. I would say even Political Compass ( is quite a bit simplified concept, political spectrum had a wide viriety of research. In my personal opinion, Nazis are economically to the left, socially to the far right. Comminists (Stalinist and Maoists) were also economically to the far left, socially to the far right. I personally think that a line of nationalistic tendencies is the last invisible measurement of the Political Spectra where actually Nazis and Communists are differ. Nazis were extreme chauvinistic nationalists. Communists were inherently internationalists. Also Nazis allowed private property (although the plan for the final Greater Germany called for the full nationalization of the world wealth for the benefit of the German nation.)

Ha, here is a question to Adams: why did not his father make such arrangement when his mind was still with him? Is it possible he did not want to die by his own or anyone else's help? Perhaps he himself has religious or moral problems with that? Do whatever da fark you want, but don't make decisions for anyone else, even if they are your family. You really have no moral or ethical right to determine anyone else's right to live.

Based on your various spellings I would assume you are a German, and not just any German -- but a piece of Soviet-left GDR-garbadge. Wallow in your shame for not just your Nazi past, but your communist past as well. And wallow in the shame of your inferiority complex against those Germans who grew up in the West side of the country.

Neither you , nor I know that he cut off Daniel Pearls head, because his confession was gained by torture - cause a man enough pain and he will tell you he owns the moon and will sell it to you as well.

Guess what? Confession under torture is still a valid confession. Besides, even in a court-room, he once again confessed, requoting himself word-by-word from what he told in interrogation.

"I decapitated with my blessed right hand the head of the American Jew Daniel Pearl, in the city of Karachi, Pakistan

Does it sound to anyone here as though this was taken by a confession?

240 of them are still there despite their innocence being known.

Not even going argue about numbers. They were foreign fighters in Afganistan fighting for Taliban. By the Taliban's very definition the foreign fighters were Al-Quada affiliated. In short -- they deserved it.

Can I put a big sticker on you that says "Muslim" and expect you to pass through the US unmolested?

Absolutely. I will not be molested even if I were to show up wearing Taqiyah with a Muslim wife dressed in a full hijab in a middle of New York city or at the airports. And no, you probably have not talked to enough of the average Muslims. While percentage of Muslims that are scrutinized by TSA is higher than any other religion, it is by far not unique, and very small minority of Muslims who pass through the airport gates get scrutinized.

RTFA, the dude is Hindu. The red flag goes up for many reasons, and when enough flags go up -- the computer flags you for extra scrutiny. This is a price of living in a "safe" country.

Kinda funny a guy from Russia et all... Sort out your own shit before crowing about anybody else's pal.

Did you even read what I wrote? I grew up in Russia and I spit on that place. Russia is your worst offender of human rights, and while the domestic America-haters on the left love to hold Russia up on a pedestal -- this behavior is not unique, and been present among the socialist-liberal / academic circuses since 1930s. As Lenin called them -- "Useful Idiots". Seriously, Fuck Russia. But at least in Russia they won't cut your head off for being different nationality or religion, unlike among the prisoners of Guantanamo Bay.

As a person who grew up in Soviet Union and still keeping in touch with things that are happening in all of the Soviet republics, I can tell you that Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan easily qualify as an answer to all four of these questions. BTW, who in the United States have been militarily imprisoned without a trial? Are the constitutional rights REALLY including freedom of speech, religion, the right to own a weapon, the right against self incrimination, the right to own a property are really not protected in these zones? Does the government really suspended entire constitution in these zones? Or are the government with agreement of the courts (who are the constitution) expending the right of limited warrants for the cause for search and seizure? Are the prisoners in Gitmo really innocent? Can I put a big sticker on you that says, "JEW" and put you in the same room as Khaled Shekh Muhammad? (You know, he personally cut the throat of Daniel Pearl, for being Jewish.) Perhaps I don't need to label you as a Jew. I can just add you as another American in a Gitmo room full of "innocent" jihadists. Lets see how long you last. And where and when have we assassinated one of our own citizens for engaging in protected speech? The only assassinations of the American citizens are those of the Yemeni cleric from Detroid (I think). And he was running an Al Quada media wing. Was that only because of the so called "protected" speech on his part?
