    education here is really good. its goverment funded until your 18 (free basicly). and is vastly diverse.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education_ ... etherlands
    Read about it.


    Government funded and free don't belong in the same line of thought. There is no such thing as free, only free to you. I don't like the idea of forcing others to pay for your children's education.

    Normal school.

    I never understood why someone would want to homeschool their kids.


    Some people like home cooked meals, others like to go to restaurants. People just have different values.

    I unfortunately went to public school, my future children will undoubtedly be homeschooled. The education was poor, the environment was bad, and the whole attempt at indoctrination doesn't make it very good either. I'm kinda annoyed that when I eventually homeschool my children, I still need to pay for your children's education.

    Hitler deserves sainthood as much as Obama deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. Wasn't Hitler nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize also?

    Hurr derr, I'm American too, I'm not the one generalizing. I can be concerned w/ whatever foreign policy I want. And I'm repeating myself again and again because you obviously don't understand. This isnt JUST about criminals. It's about keeping killing tools out of the hands of the untrained, idiotic, and unfit to carry/own a weapon. That's the main reason why it needs to be regulated. Not just because criminals have easier access. Sorry, if you are 80+ and you can't see **** while you live by yourself, you're going to need to stick to dialing 911, because you arn't fit to operate a gun.


    So you think one of the largest destructive entities in human history should be responsible with determining who is "fit" to be armed?

    Wait, what the **** are you talking about?


    The United States government.

    another topic that should end w/..... mind your own business.

    most people arguing against it are from other countries anyways, so what do you care?

    and the ones advocating aren't going around robbing and murdering everyone. they want it for comfort and protection. whether legal/illegal, or regulated/unregulated criminals will still find ways to get guns. meaning a simple breaking and entering, which would be deterred by a quick cock of the shotgun (yes they get scared off that easy), could turn into armed robbers torturing and sexually assaulting your family. but, from what i understand is the consensus of this forum is..... poor robbers, they have a family.

    which completely blows my mind how some of you have such a simpathy for the common criminal. no i will not treat them the way i'd like to be treated, because i don't break into peoples' homes or steal their stuff. to try and put criminals and law abiding citizens in the same group is stupid.

    GUN REGULATIONS =/= TAKING AWAY GUNS.I have addressed most of the things you are talking about. And what, non-Americans can't discuss American politics? Even though Americans discuss the politics of every other country around the globe, others can't give their opinions on ours? Wow.


    Let's say there is a paramilitary raid on my home because I am a drug dealer. They find a room filled with automatic weapons, none of them registered and I have no license. They take them from me. How is that not "taking guns away", I'm pretty sure it is.

    NO. ONE. IS. GOING. TO. STEAL. YOUR. GODDAMN. GUN. And yes, you'd be shooting them for doing something you didn't like.

    The government taking your guns is theft. Many governments in history have done it.


    Like I said, the government won't take your guns away, because of people who WOULD shoot someone that tried to take them away. And believe me, you wouldn't stand a chance against the government if they ever went crazy enough to take guns away from everyone.


    Many governments in history have done this, are you denying history? Even in the United States there is a war on guns, not completely though, it's mostly an extension of the drug war at the moment.

    Let's put it this way: If anyone tries to take my gun away, I'll shoot them. And then fling a copy of the bill of rights in their face.

    It's this kind of ignorance. You don't like someone doing something else, lets ****ing shoot them. No one is talking about taking your ****ing guns away. Nor would that ever become an issue, because of people that would shoot someone if they tried to. Like you, apparently.


    I wasn't talking about shooting someone for doing something I don't like.

    I was talking about shooting someone for trying to steal MY. GODDAMN. GUN.

    Soo many liberals on these forums...


    Agreed 100%.

    NO. ONE. IS. GOING. TO. STEAL. YOUR. GODDAMN. GUN. And yes, you'd be shooting them for doing something you didn't like.

    Day of the Triffids. What's cooler than:

    1.Mass blindness
    2.Emergent State-gangs
    3.Packs of carnivourous plants

    The great thing is that I'm such an indoor geek there's a small chance I would be outside looking at the sky blinding event. I'm also a survivalist at heart, just never had the necessity to enact my instincts. Eventually everyone will die, but I hope to live longer than most.

    No, at least he's better than that hack Dane Cook (I despise him). My favorite current comedian is Kyle Kinane. Who can't love this:
