Posted in: Violence poses conundrum to Hong Kong protest movement See in context

Haaa Nemui, what kind of experiences ? Don't you think they look the same as some people in middle east ?

Experiences in the UK of course. Like that which you were trying to tell us they don't have. I don't care if they look like some people from the middle east. I do care that they look like people who are fighting for their lives. I do care that authoritarian China is starting to look like Nazi Germany.

 Let the world see with their own eyes, why would the freedom pro-democracy mask their faces ?

I agree. In fact, China is far too secretive overall.

What are they afraid of ?

People who the state does not agree with have a strange habit of going missing.

Trump is great because he tells you what you need to hear--maybe not what you want to hear and maybe a bit crass--but definitely what you need to hear.

Nobody needs to hear how great his crowd sizes are or how great he thinks he is at all. That's probably 50-60% of what he talks about. Most of rest of the time he's out there insulting people... telling them "what you need to hear", the people already know the problems and reinforcing or reiterating those does nothing to help anybody. Strangerland had it pretty much spot on with his comment.

He needs some time away. Would only have been a matter of time before there was something much worse being reported on so I'm glad the cops have got him.

I gave a no vote but it's not really so simple. Best person for the job should always win, often women, often men, but in some places the old boys network really needs a push.

Absolutely. The RWC isn't in the bag until it's in the bag. I'm still thinking England, Wales and Ireland will all be tough teams. Not to mention the boks. It's gonna be a good tournament that's for sure. Confident the AB's still have a good chance.

So anti immigration now equals white supremacy?

Not exactly... Anti immigration is not equal to white supremacy. This part here is...

Before the March 15 shootings, Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian white supremacist, posted a 74-page manifesto on the website 8chan in which he outlined his racist views and his beliefs that immigrants were invaders who would replace the white race.

That he has supporters is what scares me. Perhaps allowing him to send mail can point to some who ought to be looked at carefully.

Why outside the Japanese embassy? Isn't there a sporting authority or institute in SK that would be better to focus their attention on?

Is this actually about the environment or is it just another excuse for South Koreans to protest against anything Japanese?

The radioactive symbol being on the signs is an indication it's about the environment but I had the same thought. Still do.

But a conservative would tell you someone's asthma might kick in or their heart might give up when they try to defend the gun.

Exactly. You can outrun someone with a knife but you can't outrun a bullet.

Yeah it was a hopeless performance all round from the AB's I think. I'm not giving either of these teams a chance right now. Still... RWC often brings out the best when it really matters. Not just for the AB's but for everyone. Next weekend will be different too, I'm certain about that.

That's not great of course, but I'm not saying it wasn't a weak performance from the AB's. I'm talking about the wallabies having everything in their favour and still letting in two tries from an undermanned team. That's nothing to be crowing about.

Wallabies shouldn't be too proud of themselves for this. To let two tries in by an undermanned team... they should be a little concerned. All Blacks lost fair and square though.

It’s the only media outlet liberals will listen to and accept.

Not even remotely true. In fact, almost every time I see CNN mentioned or cited it comes from one of you guys.

Well except when they prove my point.

And that wouldn't be very often.

it also has a link to the ACLU source document. so it’s not only CNN, it’s actually factual this time too.

So when Snopes do it it's ok now? The tune has changed from yesterday already?

As I have said before, there needs to be a better system to weed out people that have problems with mental instability another factor we desperately need to look into.

Sorry, at work and can't reply so promptly.

My earlier comment suggested more stringent checks on mental health, regular and frequent for all gun owners without exception. Not you or I or anybody else is immune to a mental breakdown. Not saying it will happen but it could and if mental health is the number one factor then it absolutely needs to be done as a preventative action. Nothing will work 100% but as part of a range of measures it would definitely help.

The amount of gun violence in the States really is a serious problem, and something must be done about it. So America.. talk, and keep talking, and listen, and don't just stop when you hear something you don't like.

You know what, you are right, but here is why gun supporters don’t trust liberals on this issue, let’s say they ban the sales of all AR-15, I don’t really care, don’t really need it, not an important gun to own, at least in my opinion. But the bigger question is, after that, then what? Now mass shooters will use another gun or try to modify it or let’s say they use a rifle? Take your pick, first it’s AR-15 then it’s something else, that’s how it starts. It won’t stop with one gun, liberals over react and they will chip away but by bit until all guns are banned. This is why we don’t trust the intentions of liberals when it comes to guns.

But that's just it. Not saying all liberals, but most are not as anti gun as you try to portray them to be. There are guns which have validity... guns for hunting a specific example. But there are some guns which are 100% unjustifiable and even your fears about them being just the start doesn't justify them.

One reason if, if these laws are implemented, there is definitely room for abuse. Look at the bill that Pelosi proposed, under her bill, let’s say for example there is woman getting attacked physically and brutally by her partner and she in desperation gets a gun from her neighbor to defend herself and has to use the weapon, under Pelosi’s bill she would go to prison, in other words, she would not be able to defend herself even in that dire situation. So again, liberals skeptic about this because we know that liberals will find loopholes to make it harder for us to keep or own guns and gun owners want No part of that.

So talk about it and iron those loopholes out. Don't just shut up shop.
