  • mulp commented on the blog post Call Congress: Oppose the Syria War Amendment

    2014-09-17 21:31:00View | Delete

    Wouldn’t it be better to call your representatives and tell them to repeal PL 107-40 because you want Muslims to have the same liberty to kill Americans as members of the NRA, the police, and other gun loving Christians?

    Be sure to make it clear you would rather die by the knife of a Muslim just like you you are more likely to die by the gun of an American Christian because you love liberty more than life.

    The problem is that no one calls Congress to demand that the liberty of killers be protected until after they are convicted of murder in a civilian court.

  • Wonder how long until he t-bones a car with the green or runs over a pedestrian stepping into the crosswalk because cars have a red…

    He would probably argue they aren’t really deserving of a right to life because they live in DC where they are denied citizenship in the pre-14th amendment sense. Of course, rights were granted to everyone, especially the vast majority denied citizenship.

  • Hmmm, not a single call for closing gitmo by transferring all those in gitmo into a Federal prison in the US.

    Then they would have full access to Federal courts which could set them free in the US.

    That’s the real solution. You need to convince your neighbor to vote for members of Congress committed to closing gitmo and bringing all the prisoners into the US and into Federal criminal courts where they can be set free.

    You damn capitalist!! You are going against the will of the pillage and plundering Kochs who want you to let your investment in your house decay so it burns more and more oil to heat, driving up demand for oil, driving oil profits from the scarcity. But at least you have a gas guzzling car [...]

    The policy needed is clear, so why not march chanting “huge carbon tax! tax us hard with a huge carbon tax! gasoline at over $10 per gallon NOW! heating oil at over $10 per gallon NOW! tax us hard with a huge carbon tax NOW!” Nah, that would not be a free lunch and too [...]

  • mulp commented on the blog post Hearts, Minds and Dead Sunnis in Iraq

    2014-09-16 00:49:02View | Delete

    Many Sunnis see their own government as more of a threat than any ISIS occupation, given the record of the past eight years of Shia control.

    If it were simply a matter of letting the “some Sunnis” have their way and be subjected to the rule of ISIS and they let ISIS kill the Sunnis that would not conform to ISIS, Obama would have let ISIS keep taking territory in Iraq toward Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. But instead ISIS turned north and began killing everyone who was not Sunni willing to submit to ISIS.

    You need to make the case for supporting ISIS committing genocide on the scale of hundreds of thousands to millions as the best policy for peace.

    If you can make that case, then the simple solution for wiping out terrorism is carpet bombing all conflict zones with nuclear weapons and finally getting my money’s worth and my parents who paid for building tens of thousands of them. No revenge would be possible then because the populations would be wiped wherever terrorists operate.

  • The “tricks” today are the “tricks” of 2001, not 2003. The WTC towers burning and falling, the Pentagon burning, the dead are the same as the dead of the mass murders proudly filmed for the West to view, and the beheadings filmed to view. If Americans were to react to 911 and ISIS like they [...]

    Yeah, we need to vote in politicians who will make sure innocent people are able to be mass murdered by dictators, religious fanatics, pirates, bandits, terrorists.

    Why given North Korea has three Americans hostage, we need to let North Korea nuke Japan, South Korea, and any other nation they can hit with their nukes.

    If land line telephone service is the model for net neutrality, then you are saying that congestion resulting in busy signals due to too much total traffic is net neutrality, or in the case of Internet traffic, dropped connections, delays, and stuttering video are all consistent with net neutrality. It does not matter if the [...]

  • If you aren’t demanding gasoline and heating oil prices be hiked to at least $10 a gallon by a carbon tax and high war taxes on oil imports, then you are a supporter of war over oil.

    Obama represents all the American people who want cheap oil in the only way a liberal can, by doing whatever it takes to ensure lots of oil in the market including war.

    You can’t end the need for war for oil by closing your eyes when putting gasoline in your car and imagining its electricity generated by wind and solar.

    I see you are a free luncher….

    You talk of the war for oil, but you don’t call for a carbon tax alternative that hikes gasoline and heating oil to at least $10 a gallon immediately.

    Obviously you want the cheap oil that needs the endless wars, but don’t want to pay for the wars, and obviously do not want to price oil so it is so expensive you will be forced to be a capitalist who invests and pays for every harvested from the sun and wind.

    TANSTAAFL.

    Don’t want war, then demand that high taxes that force the massive capitalist investment in wind and solar economy ending the pillage and plunder of natural capital, made possible by using human capital as cannon fodder.

    After claiming the Assad government would “never regain legitimacy” Obama said he wanted Congress to give him new authorities to fight ISIS in Syria – a move that will help the Assad government stay in power.

    Given ISIS is an ally of Assad against the pro-democracy revolutionaries, how does defeating ISIS with the help of the pro-democracy revolutionaries transferring the territory ISIS holds to the pro-democracy revolutionaries help Assad? Assad does not attack ISIS. ISIS does not attack Assad but only takes territory and resources the revolutionaries hold or are close to controlling.

    Maybe ISIS will turn its attention to Assad once its wiped out all other opponents to Assad, but that would trigger Putin acting in defense of Assad and his bases in Syria. ISIS would more likely head into Turkey, Jordan, or even Saudi Arabia/Kuwait. Baghdad will be defended by Iran so ISIS will be satisfied with fueling a civil war there with Sunni massacres their objective to give ISIS the freedom to go massacres Shia in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia who are near the Iraq border. That will draw in Saudi Sunnis to join in the killing.

    Or just go into Jordan. That will be easy pickings.

    Following up, members of Congress receive pay of $174,000 and a typical session is 175 days which is $994 per day in session. At the current minimum wage of $7.25, that is 137 hours of work. A minimum wage worker would find voting almost mandatory for survival. Given the number of citizens age 18 or [...]

    If anyone thinks such an amendment would solve any problems, well you are delusional. The campaign reform to get money out of politics made things worse rather than better because it made conservatives focus on grass roots organizing instead of money to influence elections, and made progressives abandon grass roots organizing and just sit around [...]

  • The appropriate comparison is between terrorism and gun violence.

    Which do you fear more, your six year old child killed by a Muslim terrorist with a knife, or your six year old child being the lone survivor of a mass murder in his grade school by a mentally ill gun lover?

    Of course, several six year old kids are killed every year by stray bullets from guns.

    Are Americans willing to have government prevent the large numbers of murders of Americans by Americans with guns?? Absolutely not, so why do Americans find the very few deaths of Americans by Muslims to be so important that hundreds of billions should be spent in response.

    If global warming is caused by capitalism, then ISIS is capitalism to the ultimate because ISIS decapitalizes, pillages and plunders, rent seeks, pumps and dumps its power and generally inflates its power. ISIS beats Exxon in its capitalism. ISIS beats the Kochs. But if capitalism is ISIS, the Kochs, and Exxon, then the future is [...]

    Yep, Obama is defying the 70% of Congress who are opposed to burning fossil fuels elected by the 80% of voters who are willing to pay any price to go green including $50 for a gallon of gasoline and $50 a gallon for heating oil. You are absolutely a free luncher. TANSTAAFL. Pay the price [...]

    Why Obama went against the 70% Democratic majority in Congress in issue the authorization for nuclear reactors using executive authority that is unconstitutional, but supported by the 30% of Congress that is Republican and approved by the 30% Republican Supreme Court….

    Why should I care about the people around Diablo who vote for the anti-government, pro-polluting big corporate backed and backing Republicans overwhelmingly except when it came for Obama?? Republicans talk about taking responsibility for your actions, and 60+% have voted in favor of the party that sees Diablo as a virtue because it defies the [...]

  • What hope is there when Assad, ISIS, al qaeda, the House of Saud, the Shia parties in Iraq, the emirate leaders, see the millennials as a greater threat than radical islamists and mass murdering terrorists from the West’s disaffected discriminated millennials who are liberated to murder without reservation because they have no connection at all to those they are murdering?

    Assad and ISIS have found common cause: killing the millennials who look West to find their social and political values, and thus they leave each other alone for now.
