re: Switzerland to Muslim Students: Shake Your Teacher’s Hand or Pay $5,000 - Doc Fenton

Yes, and once your service is over, you get to keep your gun if you want, but it seems that a lot decide to turn it back in. Gun ownership is dropping, and might be as low as 25% ([link=(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Switzerland)]LINK[/link]) by now. Still, you don't want to mess ...

re: Libertarianism is BS - Doc Fenton
I haven't read this thread, but I will chip in my thoughts as someone who previously identified as a Libertarian in my teenage years, and even a little bit into my early 20s. First, if you study the law and economics aspect of regulations enough, you will quickly find that purist ideological libe...

[quote]If you were a black person living in this country (at least the South) before the mid-60s, you were prohibited by law from basic rights that in the name of decency, if nothing else, all men and women of this country are entitled to. I assume you're familiar w/ those prohibitions. THOSE pe...

Settle down, buddy. #1. Non-citizens shouldn't get citizens' rights. Whatever citizenship process a country wants to perform, it should be that country's choice, and it would be absurd if that didn't include cultural assimilation. #2. Kids don't have full citizen rights and freedom from "stati...

re: Switzerland to Muslim Students: Shake Your Teacher’s Hand or Pay $5,000 - Doc Fenton
Not quite. I've been splitting time between countries this year. I'm full-time employed in NYC and a full-time graduate student in Zurich this spring (and sometimes paying rent in both places!), and while that's been extremely exhausting, YOLO and all that, so why not? If things go according to plan...

re: There is no fricking left,right, liberals or conservatives - Doc Fenton
Well said, pimp. The only thing I can add, same as always, is that the people themselves are to blame, not some elite governing conspiracy. It's funny how the people who say there's no choice and both parties are bought, tend to be the same people who keep supporting unsustainable entitlements th...

re: Privilege: The Left's Original Sin - Doc Fenton
Any political ideology, if it is truly an ideology, is religious in character, seeking all-encompassing answers to life's questions by looking at things in a particular way. This tendency has been well noted for Marxism and for the Holy Church of Global Warming, and I would say that the current Left...

re: What if shots had never been fired on Fort Sumter? - Doc Fenton
Only 7 states had seceded prior to Fort Sumter: SC, MS, FL, AL, GA, LA, & TX. The 36th Congress that met in 1859 & 1860 had 33 states, only 15 of which were slave states. Had the Union simply let the 7 states go, the 37th Congress would have been left with 26 states, only 8 of which were slave st...
