Such bullshit, people don't want to convict them on the grounds that it'll be racist and look bad... not guilty for attacking someone because they're not used to drinking? How about if I shoot someone but I'm not used to holding a gun.. should I get away with it?

It would be racist to prosecute people who carried out a racist attack...

In other facepalm-worthy news, the prime Republican presidential candidate denies the existence of Palestinian people.  I know that conservatism is about maintaining a status quo, but seriously some obviously bad and pointless things are just... argh this hurts my head. Please just reelect Obama America. I know he's boring but at least he isn't a moron.

It's sad to think that some people genuinely believe that Palestinian people didn't exist until 1948... They must have just sprung up from the ground after the British Mandate dissolved! This is one of the big issues that partly led to 9/11... Why is Israel so highly favoured anyway?

It's primarily due to a pro-isreal government currently in the United States. People downplay Muslims in general due to 9/11, under faulty logic that, for some reason, all Muslims are somehow categorized as violent hateful people who should never be taken seriously. Honestly, I can't really take sides for either the Israeli or Palestinians. They both committed their fair share of violence against one another, so choosing one over the other just promotes more ignorance. Really, the only solution is to deny both the Israelis and Palestinians from their "holy land," since it's clear they both don't deserve it with blood on their hands after, literally, centuries of conflict.

Oh, Alex are you referring to Newt Gingrich? He's one odd fellow, I'd actually be rather scared to live in this country if he were elected.

This is a hard one to answer without sounding like a massive asshole, but mainly it's down to the Jewish lobby in America which are more or less on par with the NRA and Creationist lobbyists (both for attention and moral dubiousness).

Israel can easily pull the holocaust card to shut people up and do whatever they want, but ironically they depend upon Western support to exist. Without Western support they would be financially crippled and pretty quickly shooed out the of Middle East by neighbouring countries.

Yep I'm referring to Newt Gingrich :|

Moving Palestinians and Israelis apart to separate lands (preferably unoccupied ones which won't cause unending trouble) would be a radical thing to do. But it would be one way of solving that problem, kind of like two children fighting over one thing - sometimes the best thing is to deny it to them both

Well, I won't defend them really, but your argument wasn't very good Alistair. Holding a pistol doesn't affect your brain directly which alcohol actually does.
I don't get why this would look like a racist thing if they had them arrested, they probably arrest a hundred muslims a day just like every other country. I can't get the though out of my head that it would look fucking badass though, a bunch of girls in saris beating up people and getting drunk!

I'm sorry you didn't think that argument was very good "Anton", but if you've been drunk before you know that even though your brain is altered with the effects, you're still aware of what you're doing, which is why blaming alcohol for doing stupid or violent things is invalid everytime.

Yes I have, but the fact still remains, some people who are otherwise quite sensible people can get really angry or uncontrolled when they are drunk. You shouldn't ever blame drunkeness but of course it's not comparable to just holding a pistol.

It's quite simple, really. Republicans are regressives and the Democrats are Conservatives. The US actually has only a small handful of actual progressive politicians thanks to the constant slide to the right following Carter leaving office. Hell, my mom was a hard-line Republican back in the mid-1990's and nowadays is considered a socialist in this country, because despite her views not changing she's now further to the left of even the dems. :coolbiden:

Oh, Alex are you referring to Newt Gingrich? He's one odd fellow, I'd actually be rather scared to live in this country if he were elected.

The worst part is he has a Ph.D in history and was a professor for several years, so he should know better, but :newt: The fact that he's the only Speaker of the House in the history of the country to ever be forcibly removed for ethics violations, who has a rapsheet of other horrific/contradictory bullshit that puts even Nixon and GWB to shame, is now the GOP front-runner is just downright vomit-inducing.

Fuck the middle east!
There's too many problems.
They just get in the way.
We sure could live without them.
They hijack our planes.
They raise our oil prices.
We'll kill them all and have a ball,
And end their fuckin' crisis.
Beirut, Lebanon; Won't exist once we're done.
Libya, Iran; We'll flush the bastards down the can.
Syrians and Shiites; Crush their faces with our might.
Then Israel and Egypt can live in peace without these dicks!

Did you make that up or is that some kind of limerick that some Americans chant? If it's the latter, I truly feel sorry for those people.

While we're on the subject of morons in American politics, I'll add Mr and Mrs Clinton, Dick Cheney, Madeleine Albright and of course Joe Biden...

I know I'm dragging this on a bit but:

If a white man were to rape a black woman in this country, and give the excuse of "being drunk" that would not hold in any court room. It would rightly be prosecuted as a crime. What's wrong is that minorities who commit crimes are (on occasions such as this) given more lenient sentences, I can only imagine this is to try and fiddle statistics.

Obligatory army service ftw. That will at least harden up some nerds and make them fit mentally, and physically.
Yeah but most nerds would get a desk job. There was a guy who worked on the HOE project who had to do national service and (as I recall) just did stuff on computers :P

World War 2 and rationing made light beer, Americans decided they liked it enough to keep their piss water.

All but like two of the senators impeaching him were having affairs while in office. That combined with them literally having to make shit up to even get to the Lewinski (LOL WHITEWATER SCANDAL) evidence was fuckin' great.

Reminds me of the Solyndra 'scandal' Obama had...never mind that he just made a few speeches and all the money was originally given to them by Bush with Obama renewing some stuff xD
