^ Fixed the first part of that sentence for you. I'm curious to know what evidence there might be to support the second part.

It’s hard to fake not almost stroking out. Still better than teaching. At least it doesn’t make me want to kill anyone besides myself.
^ Well, that's very worrying news OccultHawk. You should have a medical check up asap.

I hate Alex Jones. He is a zionist puppet. A controlled opposition gate keeper. Don't compare me to him.

France banned guns and a man just fired an AK-47 into a crowd. Gun laws don't work.

The parents need to lock their guns up and spend some time with their fucking children.

If parents spent more quality time with their kids, the number of mass shootings would go down. PERIOD.

Did he kill anybody?

You're right. Unjustifiably elevated levels of respect = fetishize

Everyone deserves respect.

Lulz looks like they've got to you mate. There's actually never been a mass shooting in America. I would have expected you to know that.

Ok, technically not. But:

^ Probably. I'm not happy with it, but it often happens when two countries are at war with each other.

Yep, murder is inherent to war. That's why I consider joining the military to be an endorsement of murder and why I view it as a morally bankrupt decision that I can't support.

"Eh, that's war" is as poor of a justification for murder as "but I was mad". Behind every weapon that kills a human in war sits another human actively making the decision to murder someone.

OK. My bad. You happy now?

We owned it, we governed it, we pretty much controlled its economy. How do to you think Pearl Harbor got there in the first place.

Plus, Spam.
