    From an AP story appearing on the AT&T web site:
    Seems to me that our image has sunk to an all-time low when people want to kill Americans because of a cartoon that appeared in a newspaper in Denmark. It ain't like the cartoon was drawn or planted by an American.

    Good grief!

    They are protesting over a bloody cartoon. There isn't exactly too much of a logical link inherent there.

    Said persons opinions of Americans might not be all due to American, nor all the meaningful.


    And besides, the "Death to America" chant is such a cliche that it'd be out of place for them not to do it.

    "Death to America" is just used as an exclamation point in some countries.

    "Would you like fries with that?"

    "Heck yeah! Death to America!"

    See?

    I don't know. There always have been people who dislike America and Americans, no matter that what they are protesting did not have American involvement.


    Oh, by the way, In Before The Lock.

    I traveled to Europe twice last year. Have done so for many years.

    I sensed that they despised HRH King George of Crawford. They liked Americans about as well as Americans like fellow Americans. However, the mention of King George just sends them thru the roof.

    I have 2 trips planned for this year.

    That is the inevitable "thanks" we get for the globalist brainfarts of our "compassionate" leaders and the blood of our soldiers.

    I say, cut off all foreign aid, bring the troops home, and let the crapluckistans revel in their backwardness and misery. It seems they like it the way it is.

    Sorry. I thought it fit under "Political." If I have sinned, moderators feel free to lock or delete.

    It is political, but I don't see it really as relating to RKBA or civil rights. Coronach went and locked down over a dozen threads last night that were political, but were not about RKBA or civil rights.

    It looks as if the mods really want to bring this board back on topic with political threads that are about RKBA and civil rights, not just politics.

    See this thread on APS for discussion: http://armedpolitesociety.com/viewtopic.php?id=2488

    Feel free to post threads like this one on APS.

    Just a present for the moderators. They have been using quite a bit of these lately and I don't want them to run out... :neener: :neener:

    I don't despise you, Old Fuff. But if you want to send me money, feel free. :D

    And yes, off topic, for the reasons stated. ;)
