    Something to do while our RP wunderkind and defense goes awry. Surgery for Chris, because of the wisdom of Jobe.

    I say bunt when Dee gets on first. It's what HoF manager, Joe Torre would have done.
    "I was just a soldier following orders", said the obergruppenfuhrer at Nuremburg, as did the LH Mexican/French CF of the LAD last night in LA.

    Snakes in Ireland is meta for something else.
    Probably Irish paganism or whatever else church wanted buried.
    I have almost no memory of how that story goes other basics.
    But I'm guessing it's about the church cleansing land of undesirables.


    Your religious affiliation doesn't matter as much when it comes to this.
    Atheist agnostics Muslims Catholics Jews Christians what have you.
    You don't know who you are till you are pushed.
    In the end people from all religions will betray their convictions in order to save their life.
    And by life I also mean lifestyle.
    Fear of losing your lifestyle is chief common denominator.
    People will put up with the unthinkable.
    They are deadening their hearts and minds.
    So when pushed they can comply without too much remorse.
    As long as they can live as many days in their paradise as they have left.

    I think the problem of these mass shootings isn't so much the guns, but the way the media influences people how to act or live. The standard of masculinity they put out there that promote violence and being a tough guy. This isn't a problem in any other country.

    Mass shootings and mass murders are not isolated to the US. Those are just the ones that get the most press coverage in our country (which is understandable). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rampage_killers

    And while I don't dispute there is some affect from pop-culture, mental illness seems to be the top contributing factor from what I've read/seen.

    And mental illness is not new and not difficult to deal with.
    Spartans smashed them on the rocks. We smash them with high powered brain chemicals.
    Mental damage is helped a lot simply by not eating chemicals.
    We don't just eat them with our mouths in the food water and pills we eat.
    This country is deliberately made retarded and worse by doing what it used to do to enemies when a resource was wanted.
    We not gonna play this stupid fake ass patriotic Bush era crap anymore.
    Obama was the great white hope, after that the people will no longer hope that these Cats give them back their change.
    We are being third worlded at breakneck pace.
    When you can't mine others gold you frack up your own lands.
    But hey, if water table turns methane flavored spiritwater then new coke will be a huge hit at the stock market.
    And what are we but London's market town.

    Then again people like to repeat lessons.
    Both parties have proven who their master is.
    Pictures tell a thousand words, words paint one of a kind masterpieces in your mind. But actions speak more than words.
    People really new how to love their special kids they would not leave the state to care for them. Saying that the gov knows what it's doing is washing your hands of the kid, Pilate style.

    What else can you guys expect to happen towards the end of western civilization?
    Everyone knows what time it is but you, people.
    Your top movie stars are cashing in doing tv ads while some dude in jail for making a movie.
    Companies all going for broke.
    Governments playing out their worst wish lists.
    Everybody cheating. The store is being robbed and nobody manning any more doors.
    There is no risk if you living for today because you know from within that high tech humanist social utopia is the biggest carrot on a stick for the dumbasses to smart to stop and think for themselves.

    :-$
    It's smarter for someone to think for you, leaves more time to enjoy.
    It's more efficient too, thinking takes a lot of brain power which can be better used executing awesome groundbreaking ideas if I do say so myself.
    Who needs to think before opinionating anyway?
    I mean who does that anymore?
    Next you gonna tell me that I gotta remember stuff.
    That's why we all have iprobes up everywhere to Google whatever we want.
    Knowing stuff is for nerds. :-$

    No not everyone thinks like that, thank god.
    But enough do.
    And they will be the new bullies and priests of a new but extremely old religion.
    Unfortunately many will blindly follow the leader.

    There are things you all know but can't except.
    That is why you aren't allowed to know more.
    You don't want to know.
    Or else what?
    You have to think.
    Then speak.
    Because if you don't speak.
    Others can't listen.
    And if they don't listen they wont think.
    And how else are others to tell others if you don't tell them first?
    Do enough of that and we will all start remembering again.
    That's action.
    And action are words to the x power.

    Because there is no fourth world, we are the last country.
    The final frontiere.
    And it will soon be like the wild west where everyone will walk with steel in their hands for fear of losing their life.
    And so they will.
    Live by the 3, die by the 3.

    Btw you people wasn't meant specifically for y'all.
    I was speaking generally, in case of any misunderstanding.
    All of us.
    There's things I almost rather not know too.
    No, definitely there are many things I sometimes wished I would have never learned.
    But every person has a ton of experience.
    And now they mining that too.
    How does it feel to be a human cave?
    A little emasculated.
    Get masculated.
    Remember that life comes from the balls.
    But you need a woman's touch.

    2 Billion for the Clippers??? That is plum loco but I bet there won't be the outrage when the Dodgers were sold because of the hatred for Sterling.

    A losing franchise with no championships is worth 2 billion. How can that be? I wonder what the Lakers and their 16 championships are worth? 32 billion?

    And how were the Clippers able to be sold so quickly while it took the Dodgers what seemed like two years to get sold? If McCourt had dropped an n-bomb would the sale have gone quicker for the Dodgers?

    I smoked for 40 years. I quit 3/3/11. Shortly after my 3rd anniversary I actually lit one up...hurt like a bkitch in my lungs.

    Occasionally, I still DESIRE a cigarette but after trying one again I'm fine with saying 'no thanks'.

    I don't mind smelling someone smoking, but I don't like the smell of a smoke filled room.

    I would say they have worked extremely hard to diminish masculinity.

    Just my take however.

    My dad smoked from the time he was 12 until he was diagnosed with emphysema at 50. Surprisingly he quit cold turkey the day of the diagnosis. He was a huge smoker 2-3 pack a day guy.

    He still says if he ever gets a terminal diagnosis he's smoking his ass off.

    Not really. I mean they've been more open to new ideas lately, but it's still all about violence and sex.
