The boys — two are 17 and one is 16 — will be released no later than their 19th birthdays, according to the plea agreement… If the girls refused to have sex for money, the gang members beat and sexually assaulted them and threatened their families, police said.”
What the hell is wrong with the people down there. Letting them plead down to 2-3 years for assault, rape, and forced prostitution? I seriously want to know why the prosecutor didn’t try them as adults? Think about it in 3 years all these fuckers will be back out on the streets and if you think that they aren’t going to go back to the same shit you are lying to yourself. They where gang members, this is organized crime.
They get 3 years in jail for human trafficking of underage girls. 3 fucking years. Don’t try to tell me this scum can be rehabilitated, They won’t be.
There are miserable creatures like you in every administration who don’t have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements with the boss or colleagues. No, your type soaks up the benefits of power, revels in the limelight for years, then quits, and spurred on by greed, cashes in with a scathing critique.
In my nearly 36 years of public service I’ve known of a few like you. No doubt you will “clean up” as the liberal anti-Bush press will promote your belated concerns with wild enthusiasm. When the money starts rolling in you should donate it to a worthy cause, something like, “Biting The Hand That Fed Me.” Another thought is to weasel your way back into the White House if a Democrat is elected. That would provide a good set up for a second book deal in a few years.
I have no intention of reading your “exposé” because if all these awful things were happening, and perhaps some may have been, you should have spoken up publicly like a man, or quit your cushy, high profile job. That would have taken integrity and courage but then you would have had credibility and your complaints could have been aired objectively. You’re a hot ticket now but don’t you, deep down, feel like a total ingrate?
sorry I need to take a breath.
OK I’m Good
I’d type LOL but that’s for douche-bags.
Ok what the guy says might be true it might not, but I think Mr. Dole might have a point. Either way it’s funny.
“Nothing is more American then protecting what’s yours with a gun”, it’s a quote from DMZ, it’s true none the less. What is this some ignorant redneck rant? As some of the more liberal fellows might sputter in their usual aloof hipness and general douche-baggery. Really how the hell do you think we got this country. One day some angry colonials decided they had enough of little George’s shit and took matters into their own hands. It’s really hard to oppress the masses when they are armed to the teeth and a little bit pissed. Government is about checks and balances, government power is checked from the barrel of a free mans gun. It’s as simple as that.
Orwell once said “That rifle on the wall of the laborer’s cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there.” He meant that. The oppressor can only oppress those who cannot fight back.
The Second Amendment isn’t about hunting, it’s about giving the common man the power to keep those who would seek to enslave him in check. It was a guarantee that you had the means to defend yourself from tyranny. When they try to take your freedom you could take it back. Yes the freedom of speech is a wonderful thing but words can only inspire debate and inspire men to great things, but words alone cannot stop a tyrant.
A black man’s only friend in 1930’s Alabama was his gun. The injustice of the Jim Crow laws left him with no other savior then his 12 gage and .38.
The Warsaw ghetto uprising was the last stand of Jews with guns in hand fighting till the last was swept away by the brutality of the Nazi’s. To few guns left in their hands they couldn’t take the onslaught of the tyrants.
Revolution is a cruel and bloody thing, but when the tyrants know that the populace is sufficiently armed to defend themselves from oppression they will yield and run. Should the government trust you with a gun? No they should not! That my friend is the point. The Second Amendment is a warning to the government that should they so chose to try to take your liberty you will so chose to promptly shoot them in the face. I am so sick of people saying they are afraid of our government. They need to be afraid of us. Am I crazy or the only true student of history?
Should convicted felons have guns? Hell no, but every free and law abiding citizen should have and be trained in the proper use of such arms even if he chooses not to own any (then come running to the rest of use for help). Criminals will always have guns they don’t care about your gun laws they are criminals remember! However to tell an old widow living alone in D.C. that she can’t have a gun when you know damn well every gang-banger in her neighborhood does what the fuck is wrong with you?
So please everyone de-arm yourselves and hope your new masters are benevolent.
I leave you with some words from the previous Dalai Lama Thupten Gyatso (1876-1933):
“In the future, this system [Communism] will certainly be forced either from within or without on this land…If, in such an event, we fail to defend our land, the holy lamas…will be eliminated without a trace of their names remaining;…our political system…will be reduced to an empty name; my officials…will be subjugated like slaves to the enemy; and my people, subjected to fear and miseries, will be unable to endure day or night.”
“.…we should make every effort to safeguard ourselves against this impending disaster. Use peaceful means where they are appropriate; but where they are not appropriate, do not hesitate to resort to more forceful means” (emphasis added).
Lastly some words from the current Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso: “If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.”
Umm… This isn’t good.
Well for one it isn’t constitutional (as if that ever stopped congress before). Two it’s a bad bad idea, do you want the same morons that run the public schools (50% can’t read or calculate up to their grade level) and can’t figure out how to actually enforce immigration laws they have had on the books for 30 years run an oil company?
Venezuela is doing fine since they did that, right? OK well Hugo Chavez is still cool the average person is dealing with food shortages and outrageous inflation, but Hugo’s doing good.
It is however always good to watch them slip up and basically come out and say they are a bunch of Marxists. I can’t wait to hear the spin on this one. I wonder what they are going to try to take over (steal) next.
I can see it now. The department of Oil is created on June 10th 2009, on June 15th 2009 there is no oil left in the entire country.
God help use all!
“Leaders of the Communist Party of St. Petersburg have accused the actors Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett of being “capitalist puppets” and promoting crude, anti-Soviet propaganda in their new film, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”
Really Indiana Jones makes communism look bad? I know the last movie sucked a phat one but really are you serious? What about the Gulags, forced starvation of the Ukraine, the pogroms against the Kulaks, or The killing Fields? None of these make communism look bad?
Nope it’s Indiana Jones!
USSR – Between 44-66 million
China – Between 70 – 100 million
Cambodia – Between 1.5 – 1.7 Million (25-35% of the countries population)
Yugoslavia – About 1 million
North Vietnam/Republic of Vietnam – Between 500,000 – 1 million
North Korea – At least 1.7 million
Cuba – 31,173 (although I think this number is vastly underestimated)
So if you only take these you get 171,431,173 people murdered.
Indiana Jones, really?
None of these figures include deaths cause by wars either directly started by communist countries or through proxy. These numbers are only people killed by intentional government programs. Now this list is not inclusive of all communist oppression/murder I just used these as an example. Essentially Marxism has contributed to the deaths of over 200 million people world wide and I might be low balling that number. All the deaths in WWII civilian/military only was only around 72.5 million for some perspective.
Now some one tell me how Indiana Jones is making communism look bad? It seems to have done a good job of doing that for itself. Now you can argue that it is not the true intention of the Marxist system however since socialism and communism must rule through absolute control, the idea of the constant class war, and the worldwide aims of Marxist ideology it is very hard to divorce the mass murder from the actually ideology. Even the revolutionary nature/ideology of Marxism implies the need for brutality in order to create and then keep the populace in subservience to the state.
Capitalism on the other hand is an economic system not a totally inclusive political/economic/social ideology like communism. A capitalist country can do bad things but it isn’t from capitalism it’s from the individual government. If you do not or cannot understand the difference you might want to take off the Che’ t-shirt and read a book that wasn’t written by Kim IL Sung or Noma Chomsky.
Before you bitch democracy can have it’s problems as well but has never even come close to the brutality of communism. Only through a government with limited powers (through a constitution) can true freedom and human rights exist. Otherwise you are at the whim of your masters (screwed).
