    Like Spectral and I said, if this is the extent of our worries we have the easiest existence of all time.
    In fact as far as I'm aware the UK is the only european nation that outright bans guns for civilians.
    Shotguns I'll give you (provided you're allowed 12 and larger gauges... because I mean... come on...) but not .22s.
    This is why people ban guns. Gun supporters don't know what guns are.

    I'm an American and that made me sick to my stomach. Did the man do the things the officers said he did? Yes. However, it was all done with the air of throwing around the weight of American "superiority". Those officers were never in danger from that guy and they knew it. They didn't like that he didn't sit, stay, and play dead when he was asked to. While I am glad that our country is actually checking people, this particular check was an exercise in being a massive dick. Police state indeed. Our Constitution is becoming worth less than the paper it was written on if I had wiped my ass with it.

    I thought I heard a few cuts in audio there. It's quite possible the guy in question was behaving like a total dick to the officers and just cut those parts out. It wouldn't surprise me in the least.
    Well 1, 2, 3, take my hand and come with me
    Because you look so fine
    And I really wanna make you mine

    I'll give you that, but the part at the end? "You pulled your arm away, that's assault." The fuck? I remember when our country used to have a sack.

    The fuck? bit for me was when they told the guy he was going to jail. Just when i thought that was about as fascist as they could get they told the guy 'You wife is going to jail as well lolz'. In a situation they incited and then escalated they are going to throw him and his wife in jail?

    They must have had to build a new section at Guantanamo Bay as well if that guy is catching 3 terrorist a day sneaking across the Canadian border.
    I'm a Forsaken. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on in your existence is never understanding why.

    Except I wasn't talking about the 1800's exclusively. They believed in Manifest Destiny, that it was their divine right to settle in America.

    It wasn't greed, it was their devotion to their faith.

    Yes, if Germany had won WWII and their lebensraum ideals were fulfilled then they would become a normal stable society. And people would brush off the holocaust as a minor thing as well, a couple hundred years later.

    That's my problem with America. Hypocrisy.
    But they're not the same, basically.

    Making assumptions.
