re: When will the left deface the Newseum? - Joshjrn
[quote]Has no issue with the 1st Amendment, goes on to explain their issue with the 1st Amendment. Just forgot the 'BUT' after the 1st sentence. [/quote] It's a matter of degree. Very, very few people in this country call for the First Amendment to be interpreted literally: Congress shall mak...

re: When will the left deface the Newseum? - Joshjrn
[quote]That's cool and all, but when you consider simply voicing your political opinions as "inciting violence", you can see where that goes.[/quote] I'm a minarchist, so they can promptly go frick themselves. I'm simply conveying the argument :lol:...

re: When will the left deface the Newseum? - Joshjrn
With that (vastly more important) statement out of the way, my understanding of their argument is as follows, and I'll do it in first person because it's grammatically easier: [quote]I have no issue with the First Amendment. What I take issue with are people who hide behind their privilege in de...

re: Soooo Boston didn't turn out the way Democrats/CNN wanted - Joshjrn
[quote]"Anarcho communists"[/quote] Depends on how, exactly, you define "communism" and how, exactly, you define "the state", but if they wanted to be more accurate, they should probably use the term Anarcho Syndicalist, assuming they have the faintest idea as to what that means. ...

[quote]The only group that even comes close to what you're describing is the Yazidi and their peacock God.[/quote] Kudos on the world religions knowledge. :cheers: The Yazidis are an interesting bunch. Talk about religious persecution......

re: The pending rise of Gen Z is going to be staggering - Joshjrn
I find it interesting that people on this board who otherwise fart in the general direction of "experts" on a daily basis all of a sudden swear these tight generation bands are gospel truth :lol: The reality is that we won't know how to define these generational bands for another decade or two. B...

re: Are there any monuments to WWI and/or WWII soldiers in Germany? - Joshjrn
[quote] I won't pretend to be a civil war expert, and I've been trying to get a handle on it's origins because this "the war wasn't about slavery" bit comes up a lot, and I honestly can't seem to come to a conclusion that, at some core level, it WASN'T about the rights to own slaves.[/quote] Rea...

re: Are there any monuments to WWI and/or WWII soldiers in Germany? - Joshjrn
I haven't spent a ton of time in Germany, but they are super fricking testy about anything that could be seen as glorifying their militaristic past and WWII in particular. Wouldn't surprise me to found out that there is a healthy amount of WWI memorials, though. As although certainly militaristic, th...

re: Governor of Maryland orders removal of Justice Taney statue - Joshjrn
[quote]You misspelled Obergefell v. Hodges or Roe v. Wade or National Federation v. Sebelius[/quote] If you want to argue Roe, I'll allow it. The other two? Whether one agrees with them or not, naming them as among the worst decisions of all time displays an almost astounding ignorance of the cou...

re: If The British Did What Progressives In This Country Wanted - Joshjrn
[quote]Unless they have a couple dozen GBU-28's the stuff they use would just remove the dust from the outside. The pyramids are huge and solid as hell. Good luck to anyone wanting to destroy them.[/quote] Honestly, it would probably be more efficient to dismantle them brick by brick. ...

re: "if you are a white male and you feel oppressed, boy are you ignorant" - Joshjrn
[quote]Personally, my view is that an extremely small amount of americans can objectively claim to be "oppressed", but the intent of the quoted statement is to somehow imply that white men have it good in america, and don't have a right to complain about anything. [/quote] I think that's the root...
