    Moderates, lament. The crazypants have once again co-opted the Sesame Street aesthetic. I can't wait for the Yesha Council, Nation of Black Israelites, and American National Socialist Party to start doing these. Daily Mail link here.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Is it crazy? yes ,Does it scare the crap out of me? yes ,would I ban it? No

    Free speech is the most important when it comes to things that we find sickening and wrong. It is easy to say free speech unless we don't like it.
    Child porn is difi=erent because people are hurt in producing it but other than that I believe free speech should be absolute. Not just because it is a prini=ciple but because you should not make laws that you have no hope of being able to enforce ,then you give credibility to these people that they otherwise would not have had and with the internet and other ways they have of distributing propaganda it is getting out anyway.

    Banning free speech just reduces are freedom without accomplishing anything.


    As far as the issue of Palestine that is a whole other thing that really deserves it's own thread if there is anyone interested.

    I grew up with army games and toy guns and GI Joe and all sorts of stuff that makes this look childish by comparison. "Asymmetrical warfare" is still warfare, and teaching kids to attack Cobra Commander might be a lot more insane. "See that masked leader of the laser-weapon serpent cult? Let's put on some costumes and waste him!" The packaging at the time said right on it that Cobra Commander worked for the Libyans.

    "I recently learned something quite interesting about video games. Many young people have developed incredible hand, eye, and brain coordination in playing these games. The air force believes these kids will be our outstanding pilots should they fly our jets."

    Talk of asymmetrical, in an Israeli children's show you wouldn't see the hookah as seen here in the second frame!

    cuz smoking is, like, bad, and evil, and wrong.

    It looks like a hookah! But is only a lamp.

    But a determined person could still smoke something out of it with the right parts! We need a "Hookahs for Mom-Bombers" program, maybe that would calm people down. :)
