Comment Glad to help. (Score 1) 1011

The effects on true believers whose religion has been shown to be false are so sad. You should have picked one of the traditional religions, which admit they are based on faith.

Anyway, all you have asked for has already been done and made available online many days ago.


I understand the NYT has been silent about the contents of these stolen and leaked emails, presumably because these emails did not endanger national security.

To cheer you up I leave you with this happy video.

Everyone knows you can only do tasteless jokes about a black woman or man when they are a conservative.

Remember Condoleezza Rice?


Remember Michael Steele?

Self loathing and ignorant. How sweet.

Stalin just loved killing. Soviet or National Socialist, Stalin was happy to have either dead. Praising the Soviet body count without looking where it came from suggests you value quantity over quality, and you don't even care where the quantity comes from or why.


Comment Wrong on the statistics, wrong on the facts (Score 2, Informative) 507

What utter bullshit. A moments Google search for total crimes per capita would have shown you that from worst to best, the rank is:

1 Dominica
2 New Zealand
3 Finland
4 Denmark
5 Chile
6 United Kingdom
7 Montserrat
8 United States


Furthermore, people don't steal because they are poor. They steal because they are sociopaths. Bernie Madoff was not short of cash for a box of donuts and a six-pack. He was not poor or downtrodden or starving.

There are plenty of poor people who never steal, and plenty of rich people that do.

Reproducing the numerical values in the table counts as "junk characters". A tech website that counts numbers as junk. Go figure.
