Protesting, or rioting Palestinians, Sarge. Which is the more honest statement.

Going to have to reference that one, Sarge.

As far as lands taken, the bare fact of the matter is that those palestianians making a grievance had no land prior to the Brits taking control over it, and using immigrating Jewish settlers to nurture the land. All that was created was built in a land occupied by nomads, not any semblance of a Palestinian people.

You are ignoring the one salient fact about why peace HAS BEEN SO HARD TO GET.

The Palestinians have not backed down from their desire to commit genocide upon the Jews and their arab allies in Israel. It has been the foundation of their existence to exterminate the people inside Israel. When they finally formed a govt entity, part of their stated stance was not sharing or living with the Jews and other arabs who have enjoyed living a free life in Israel. After the elections, it became crystal clear that the Palestinians desire any solution that includes the extermination of a people.

Nobody in Israel has made those statements, and the egalitarians nature of life in Israel treats those arabs and Palestinians inside Israel as true citizens.

How is any discussion to be had when one side embraces extermination as a non-negotiable stance?

Re: “The line is open

Some of my favorite writers are, shall we say, iconoclasts.

Some may consider them assholes, but then some of those calling them assholes are, in fact, the asshole.

Take Harlan Ellison. Great writer, very sharp, and intolerant of fools. So, to some fool who incurred the wrath of Harlan, yeah, Harlan's an ass. When you hear the whole story, though, you can understand why Harlan verbally eviscerated the fool.

One of my favorite parts of the video, Dreams With Sharp Teeth, a biography of Harlan.

Hunter S. Fucking Thompson... he was so crazy he skirted and flirted with asshole status. Brilliant mind, crazy ass whack job, but he could really distill the truth from a mountain of bullshit. Here is Hunter, in full whack job mode, having a semi-civilized discussion with his neighbor.... "In a Democracy, you have to be a player" he says as he is reloading his old Lugar.

I read Dalton Trumbo's Johnny Got His Gun, then saw the movie Lonely Are The Brave based on his being the scriptwriter. Then I read that Edward Abbey wrote the book used for the screenplay, so I got everything Abbey wrote. He had a fierce heart, but calm demeanor. nOBODY OULD REALLY CONSIDER aBBEY AN ASSHOLE, BUT HE DID LOVE HIS ISOLATION IN THE DESERT, and having lived there, I understand it. I still miss the desert.

Kind of hard to say if great artists are assholes, so much as they have little time to forgive casual idiocy. Sure, too may celebrities have an overinflated sense of self, and are arrogant asses, but if you sit down and honestly listen to what some of these people have to say, you can understand why they may react a bit aggressively towards some ignorant twit.

Re: “The line is open

sO, You're saying the woman was part of MS13? That was what the adjective was directed at, not immigrants, legal or otherwise.

As for the case of the woman being shot by agents who were assaulted by a mob on the border.... well, we'll see how that shakes out, but it's not like he summarily shot her, which seems to be what you are implying.

Re: “UA puts goats to work

My goats don't consider eating to be work. They are piranhas with hooves, they way they will reduce shrubbery. I cut down part of a tree and tossed it into their yard, and they hit it like Grant hit Richmond.

If you get the chance, go sit and watch them eat. It is amusing and relaxing.

Nice to see you guys being pleasantly punny.

Re: “Arkansas-linked Charlottesville marcher identified

Didn't miss any point, Sarge. You deal in lies, yet you make the aspersion that I am the drunk one. You have yet to use any source for how you came to your 'opinion', so they may seem more informed, but feel free to discuss this supposed and elusive 'Israeli terrorism'.

You would be very hard pressed to prove Israeli terrosim, as much as you would be impossibly pressed to prove or show a desire for peace from the palestianins.

So far, the one part we can agree on is that regioal arab nations have exploited the suffering of the palestinians. To that end, those same arab nations are more responcible for palestinian suffering than Israel.

Rememeber, Israel didn't take any of the paledstinian lands during their war for independance, but Jordan caved up a sizable chunk in the first week, then booted the palestinians out of the designated lands.

Even as recetly as 2005, Israel abandonded their rich and well nourished jewish homes and settlements in the hopes that letting the palestinians return to Gaza might mean a cessation of killings.

It didn't. Not only that, but the terrorists palestianian groups tore down most of what the Israelis had built, and began firing rockets into Israel.

You will have to do some hard digging to find anything of worth ot back up what you have claimed, sarge.

Re: “The line is open

Not just defamation, but inflicting of mental anguish. I get some goons that think just because I am a gun nut, and have conservative leanings, that conservatives buy into this loony notion that no child was harmed in the making of this false flag.

Uh, yeah, except, like most conspiracies, Occam's Razor has already shredded the insipid idiocy of the sandy hook deniers.

Alex Jones has been the lightning rod for keeping the stupidity alive in the tell, so yeah, he needs to be hit with the humongous financial smack down for being a really shitty, lazy human being.
