SCIENTISTS CONFIRM WE'RE NOT LIVING IN A COMPUTER SIMULATION


Well, sure, but if we were living in a computer simulation that's exactly what they'd tell you to believe.
Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.

Only in today's America can policy be based on the notion that the rich have too little and the poor have too much.

Have any of you seen the story of the Palestinian teen arrested for kicking an Isreali solder?

why is that even a story? assaulting a soldier got you arrested? you are very lucky that is all you got.

Palestinian "adults" (adult-aged persons who lack the maturity of actual adults) encourage teenagers and even younger children to do these things to try and create fake news and provoke responses. their children are tools to them. they (the adults) are animals.

There's a second side to the story.

Once you type "they are animals," you're in a bad territory.

the "they" referred specifically to the people who send their children to do things like this. if you can't agree with that, you are part of the problem.

This is at least the third video of this little girl assaulting or threatening a soldier, so she's a bit of a hothead. NYMR is no doubt right; the kids in the family have a way of getting hurt and or arrested.

Not to say I agree with either side. It would be horrible to have to raise your children, or to be a child, in this type of atmosphere.

The thing is, with her striking looks, if she got educated and learned to be a leader, she could probably become a force for good. But who knows.

Oh, come on. Don't go pointing fingers at me.

Either we're all animals, or none of us are. Dehumanizing our enemies is not going to get us anywhere.

I promise you, I'm doing what I can for Palestinian-Israeli peace.

People who will put their underage children in harm's way rather than themselves are animals, i'll be happy to keep repeating it.

Finding it nuts that a schoolteacher was handcuffed and arrested at a school board meeting for speaking out about a superintendents pay raise

And how about that sports reporter that was thank god found alive in Texas. Wasn't expecting that but I am very happy
