There was clarity in your father's generation and it is gone these days. The easier life gets , the more time there is for whining. Angry because he didn't get a new American car like his friends and trying to make his living from the fruit of another man's labor. Still mad at his daddy and his Uncle Sam for not giving him more. He really is a Ginger. On one of my trips something went wrong and like what is described as "Murphy's Law" the lady blurted out "It's the Americans" It is from institutionalizing every problem on the Americans. She used the saying , but did not believe it and was slightly embarassed. This gut bekieves it and is not embarassed and lives the life of what can only be described as a "Bitch" Trapped in a man's body and dreams of being an alter boyHe posts as a woman and does lack that clarity
Durak, spare us with the "humble" engineer. To write about what you know doesn't make it true or accurate. What bothers me is guys like you will take a shot at the Swiss people as if your morality is better because they have decided on something that you don't agree with.
You talk about separation of church and state like it's in the constitution, which it is not. Jefferson penned that in a letter to the Baptists who helped him get elected to the presidency. You adhere to this thought as if it is written in stone, but will not cite this as an issue with Islam. Why? There is no separation on Church and state in the world of Islam. So much for the gentlemanly way of life when they won't even acknowledge a separation that you hold so dear.
You will attack religion, but defend Muslims? That one makes me laugh. You kind of remind me of Neville Chamberlin coming back saying we have peace in our times. When moments after siging the agreement Hitler confided to one of his aides that he never will follow through with such an agreement. Same as the Muslims believe, it's okay to lie if it advances Islam.
Aussie has sent me pictures of him at Clipsal. Asked me If I would like to come. I said sure but I need airfare, he said he would send money, I told him I already had visa and he need not worry. Life is Good, I didn't know making money online would be so easy, but then I didn't really learn how stupid men are in South Australia until danny came along.
I told him about danny and his loss of 30k. He laughed and said what an idiot, and I told him I knew he was smarter than that. Cha Ching!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dunsing You " like japs" do you.
they would not have liked you Dunsing if you were a prisoner of war between 1942 to 1945 .A lot of Australian British and Americans were Prisoners of your Japs during this period. Many Australian British and Americans prisoners were starved, beaten ,used as bayonet practice and then beheaded.
The nuclear bomb on Nagasaki was blessing.
Dunsing it is pity you were not living in Nagasaki during that period or were a victim of Jap tortures then we would Not have to listen your thick ignorant posts on this forum.
Gee Dungrat, what city was it aimed at women an children? You don't know much about history do you. I figured as much you can't spell and I'm sure you can't read very well.
Though you're a multi-millionare.
Since you don't know much, how many innocent people were killed at Pearl Harbor? How many innocent people were killed by Nazi's? How many innocent people were killed by the communists? Hang you head is shame danny for being such a stupid person. You claim the US sticks their nose in everything, well we didn't want anything to do with either WWI or WWII and if you know history you would know that we entered both wars well after they were started.
Viet Nam wasn't started by us either. Same with Korea. Prostitution was going strong in Thailand before the US got there. Personally, I like the isolationist attitude myself. Though the problem being we would be drug into some conflict because others, like Australia can't handle their problems on their own. Close the borders and let the rest of the world fend for themselves. No more foreign aid, no more idiotic trade agreements. This isn't as much of a global economy as many think. There are quite a few countrys that could survive with internal trade and production, unfortunary. tely Australia isn't on of them.
Yeah it would be nice, no more young Americans dying for some other ungrateful fucking country, No more unequal trade agreements with third world dictatorships, fuck them all.
It wasn't the US who invaded Kuwait but your retarded thought is the war on terrorism is a war about oil. Just goes to show how ignorant you are. Bush and Cheney are gone now you have your idiot leader you love so much. He hasn't changed a thing. We don't need the middle east oil, but Australia does. Yep Australia is such a wonderful and self supporting country. The Japanese would have overrun Australia in a matter of weeks if the Brits and the Yanks weren't there. Good luck moron, don't you have some kids to molest on craft night. 40 year old man hanging out with young children just isn't normal. Sounds like to me we have a child molester in the forum.
I can't recall WWI, I'm not as old as nasfan :), but I recall WWII whereas Japan started the conflict, just for once the USA were the defender rather than the attacker, and Japan commenced that conflict by an act of terrorism in Hawaii having kept their declaration of war against USA a secret.
Besides other nationalities thousands of Australians suffered humiliation, torture and/or death at the hands of the Japanese, whilst many might be buying Japenese cars, hi-fi's, PC's etc. these days history should not be forgotten, move with the times but never forget.
Moving on to another subject ..... nasfan, give it up mate, you just won't accept when you are beaten, DD is far more knowledgable of homosexuality than you will ever be, just accept it, do you really believe the trips to Thailand are for ladies ..... or ladyboys!
"well we didn't want anything to do with either WWI or WWII and if you know history you would know that we entered both wars well after they were started"
Yes the World knows, i'ts well documented all about your late entry into both World Wars... good of you to spare your time and infinite resources at a time when our backs were to the wall... how many million Russians, Jews and Brits had already given their lives in the cause??
Why the late entry??
Shame on you... and another misguided and eyes on the $$$$$ president...
You're off on your own there, the topic, the subject, being accused is that USA are, have been, worldwide aggressors, in particular during WWII, and you're suggesting that USA have not been aggressive enough!
Starman or whoever you may be today, why should we cater to Europe? It wasn't our problem. Why should we ever get involved in any foreign dispute, all we get for it is a ration of shit from other nations, just like your idiotic post. We're damned if we do damned if we don't. So fuck it, we should stay home and let you idiots kill each other over there. There's no respect for our guys dying so screw it. Then who will there to be to blame? I'm waiting for that. Though our politicians are idiots. I hope this election coming up in 2010 we elect some congressman and senators who have more of an isolationist approach. Also I would kick the sorry assed UN out of New York. Talk about profiteering from oil. That's okay, they're socialists.
I'm not for promoting our form of government to anyone else. We have our own problems with the socialist ideals being imported to the US from Europe. Time to stay home, protect our culture and our borders and let the rest of the world sort out the problems.
Now I understand you better Durak, being an engineer, I should have caught that one right away since I deal with you guys on a daily basis. Maybe we should talk about service factors or false brinelling. Don't take it so personal and don't be afraid to call something for what it is.
Our country, your's and mine is being destroyed by the PC crowd. I'm sure someone loved Hitler, doesn't make him any different than what he was. Like I asked before please show me now, where Christians are killing innocent people, beheading them, burning down Mosques and I will buy into your argument. Or the last time a Christian recited the Lords Prayer before blowing himself and others in the same vicinity up.
Your little poem would define a schizophrenic person.
What argument? I wrote that the Muslims of my acquaintance are true gentlemen. How this could be controversial to a sane person who doesn't know the men in question, is a mystery to me -- unless that person has decided that all Muslims have horns, pointed tails, and walk on cloven hooves. It it possible to have a rational debate, with any person who insists that I said things that I did not say?
The little poem is about people seeing things that aren't there. To me, the world isn't a movie screen, made for the projection of my prejudices. It is a reality independent of my very small mind. I work to increase my understanding of it.
Even very carefully crafted conclusions are often wrong -- then what of those that are reached hastily, in ignorance of the lion's share of facts?
For the record, I'm not afraid to call something what it is. Ignorance, criminality, bigotry, prejudice, thuggery, brutality, hypocrisy, murder -- I don't care whose feathers get ruffled.
While I find political correctness to be distasteful, the greatest threat to our country is not the 'PC crowd'. It is certainly from any foreign source: no foreigners have the power to destroy our country ... but we certainly do! The great threat is citizens who go into the voting booth without having learned history, civics, science, and what is going on around them; and those cowards who have so badly soaked their trousers out of fear, that they would gladly shred our constitution. But I'm not losing sleep over such things, because I expect that this old Union will muddle through, as it has many times before.
And I may cut a pretty poor figure as a middle-aged man who was never an athlete, but I would willingly take up arms as my great grandfather did, against American traitors who would use force against my country.
I am no expert on world history, australia has sent its men to war on many an ocassion, they are now though a nation that wants a passive outlook on the world. I would only ever say this, if it was not for USA and UK we would all be speaking German Russian or Japanese as in the case of the Ausies. Agressive countries like the Uk and Usa has its advantages we stand up for right no matter what and the whole world like it or not owes these 2 countries a huge debt for their freedom, howether the biggest sacrifice was made by the Russians and we can safely say Hitler was mad but thank god for him because we would have never had stopped the Russians if their lunatic leader had designs on europe. So we all thank Usa whether we like them or not because at the end of the day we in europe owe them our freedom and the history speaks for itself.
Here's a little experiment for you Durak. Start a google search with Christianity is, do the same Judaism is, and for any other Religion, then tell me what comes up in your search of Islam is? You will come to a conclusion really easy. Tell me what you found. I know what I found. It might be over the heads of certain cretins here. Give it a shot then tell me what you surmise.
nas, I read that news story about that a week ago.
I can make some hypotheses -- I have two, that I consider fairly probable. But I don't have sufficient data, on which to base a conclusion. In my field of engineering, we learn (the hard way) that conclusions must be based on data. I have heard that for this reason, no attorney will allow an engineer to be seated on a jury if he or she can do anything about it.
I'll make you a deal! Tell me your conclusions, and then we'll test them out. That's what scientists and engineers do :)
Well my theory and it isn't much of one, is if you look sometimes it says filtered results.Says pretty much all you need to know there. Also search engines are done by algorithms, which doesn't really leave much to think about. Since algorithms aren't done on their own, because it is a mathmatical equation such as searching for a common denominator. It is manipulated by humans. Since we know there are negative entries on the web about Islam, the PC crowd at google must be worried about repercussions from the Islamic community.
Sometimes the biggest problem is analysis paralysis. I've seen over and over in my career.
Also my my viewpoints aren't from a movie screen in front of my eyes, but actual experiences I have had. Try this, have you been to Iran? Probably not I was there before that Shah was deposed, schooled with many Iranians at Great Lakes Naval Base they were affable enough people then what happened. The Shah was deposed, a despotic Clerick named Khomeini took charge invoked Sharia law and hatred of the US. How did this happen in a years time? I spent time in
Bandar Abbas, I walked the streets and didn't fear for my safety. I can't say I could do this now. It's what happened, when Iran went from Secular leadership to Religious fanatic leadership invoked by the Quran and Mohammed.
