We can start another thread if need be but nature doesn't use cataclysmic events to correct overpopulation. We aren't hurting the Earth by overpopulation, the Earth will be here either way.

When a population becomes too large in nature and cannot be counteracted by a predatory population, competition within the species increases. Translated to humans this can be accomplished via economic means as it is now (the economic powers live lavishly while the billions of poor show their ribs and are essentially enslaved to make our shoes) or via war.

Do you think that the US government has control over the online media, that we all have access to, to the same degree as China? If i wish, i am able to access news media from any number of nations far beyond the censoring eyes of the Whitehouse. We are not limited to Fox News or Pathe news reels anymore.

It is no longer relevent to suggest that your average citizen is ignorantly expressing an opinion based upon half facts.

i have never seen an episode of jersey shore. frankly, from what i hear, such a program does little to keep people 'calm'. if anything, it is a profound cause for concern that such a thing is given air time in the first place!

Another thing, you can be against war and using military force, but if a nuke does drop in country... then who will be the pig headed retards.
the retards will be those charged with the task of maintaining a country's security to ensure no such 'in country' incident arose.

the irony of this entire situation, is that the people of iran are entitled to live with the same sort of securities and assurances that we have.

and so with every nation on this planet looking at each other as being 'shady', who are we to dictate who can or cannot babysit someone else's kid?

Last and most important, I am a man of God
this is the least important. if you wish to find comfort from a work of fiction that is for you, but this does nothing to justify people getting fucked up in the real world, due to such nonsensical faiths and allegiances.

It just so happens that i do know jesus and i know him well enough to know that he respects my opinion and how i choose to live my life. i also know that if someone has ever discharged a weapon with the intent to kill and feels that was acceptable, then it is not me with things to worry about.

the truth has been revealed to you. do with it what you will.

Well if its a holy war you're waging then consider this. Both Christianity and Islam were heavily influenced by Zoroastrianism, the Persian religion that is arguably the world's oldest monotheism. What reason would god have to destroy a people who've made such a contribution, or any other persons for that matter.

The blablabla was probably because you brought religion into a political argument. I mean really? Lord give me the strength cause this boy really needs Jesus

as the question 'who are the pig headed retards?' was asked.... consider these two recent stories and take your pick!

Quote:
Canadian officials are investigating what they called an "unbelievable case of concealment" after an Asian man in his early 20s successfully boarded a Vancouver-bound flight in Hong Kong disguised as an elderly Caucasian man.
Old-man disguise fools airport security

Quote:
SIKH Americans on Monday protested at what they said was a new policy at US airports to screen their turbans systematically, voicing fear the move would further stigmatise their faith.
Outrage at US airport turban search | Fraser Coast Travel | Holidays and Tourism in Fraser Coast | Fraser Coast Chronicle

I am unsure which is the most retarded...

that airport security has a fixation upon religiously derived dress-codes, whilst being oblivious to artifical faces...?

or that the sikh community's hypersensitivity is deemed credible or even news worthy?

travellers need to expect comprehensive searches, religious groups need to quit whining over every little thing, airport security needs to get with the fekkin program and news media should indulge in a policy of quality over quantity.

this world grows dumber by the day.

by no means do i think we should cut down a whole apple tree cuz of one bad apple, and were not. were doing a lot for the "normal" citizens of afghanistan right now which is awesome except for the fact our citizens are fucked up and need the help and our southern border needs controlled. anyways, i hate politics, shouldn't have got involved due to my opinion doing nothing to help anything unless i actually get involved in politics, which is the last thing i want to do. But enjoy agreeing on everything and ranting about things you wont change by posting on this forum. back to snowboarding threads

...and so because 9.0 found themselves to be out of their depth so quickly in here, the rest of us are mere ineffectual buffoons who should wish to be as smart as them, by not participating in anything unless it is snowboard related.

try not to let the door hit you on the way out.

incidentally, the 'normal citizens' of afghanistan have enjoyed so many awesome things since the 1980s, today they are vocally advocating negotiations with the Taliban! Yes! that very same taliban who were supposedly instrumental in the realisation of the WTC attacks. Success! *smacks head*
