Another mass shooting.  This time at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin.  7 dead, apparently including the gunman.

Yea this one caught me off guard. Who the hell has a problem with the Sikhs?


I'd very curious who the killers were and what their motivations are.

Apparently the shooter was white.  Some are speculating that the shooter mistook them for Muslims.  Seems somewhat plausible in that it has happened before, and is Ramadan right now.

That was actually my first assumption, a white shooter who thought sikh's were muslims.

That's what they get for not arming themselves.

El Barto, I get that you think there would be less crime if everyone had guns.  That's fine.

But to insinuate that they somehow deserved to get shot because they weren't carrying fatal weapons?  Seriously?  That's just awful, dude.

Wow. If it's true, it's the epitome of ignorance to mistake Sikhs for Muslims.

But the turbans!

I'm not all that surprised if some dumb American thought Shikhs were Muslims, I am more surprised to hear there's a large Shikh population in Wisconsin...

I was just reading an article about Syria, and it struck me that outside the oil thing which fuels the whole thing, just the fact that the Middle East is birthplace of shitloads of religions doesn't help. There's Shiites, Sunni, Alawites, Salafists, Jews, Christians, and they all inherently distrust each other.

Im at a conference early, and there is some woman here who is going on and on about politics. She's a liberal, which is a knock. But the baseball can I am, you get three strikes. Well, she's also talking about issues she clearly has no idea about. Strike two. And then she said she doesn't trust "those dark people" and is trying to convince others of the same.

Why isn't the speaker here? He's like 10 minutes late.

If she doesn't trust dark people, she's not really a liberal. She might be more liberal than you, on some issues, but she's not a liberal.

Oh right, i forgot, people don't like to use the definitions of words anymore. How silly of me to apply the dictionary definition to someone.

I will weigh in however by saying that just because she's more liberal than you doesn't make her a liberal. And if it does, our country is fucked.

The definition included so many different things, that you could literally name any famous liberal from history and they would not qualify to that standard.

If I don't believe in Jesus Christ as my personal savior, and I call myself a Christian, am I right?

One problem is, the Democratic party is no longer that liberal. Most of what it stands up for is a conservation of existing rights and existing practices. It doesn't really fight for anything new, and where it does, it does it in a conservative fashion. People who identify more with the Democrats, wrongfully, think they're liberal. That may not be the case. I'm a liberal, and I barely identify with the Democrats.

Open-mindedness is sorta the backbone of liberal thought, though. It's not like it's some obscure definition, it's the heart and core of what it means to be a liberal.

Not really responding to you in that post, so I don't know why you would be stopping me.

Oh you liberals. Maybe he meant knocked as in ummm knocking on wood? So a good luck trait!

Or like Knocked Up, so that she was super sexy and he wanted to get her pregnant because she was a liberal.

Or maybe Knocking on Heaven's Door. Maybe her being a liberal reminded him of Bob Dylan.

BTW my brother called me obnoxious and delusional because I don't believe his theory that because I'm a Jew, all of Europe and the Middle East wants to kill me. Sure, I realize those places are dangerous for Jews now or at least not as safe as they were, but I've never known someone to take it to as ridiculous degree as that.

I have noticed there are two continents called "America" while there is also a country called "America," where I live. This is very confusing to me because when I'm on the phone with a call center worker in El Salvador and I say, "I want to speak with an American," he always insists that he is an American, even though he knows he's not really.

Therefore I propose we rename South America "El Chupacabra" and North America "Greater America."

Proposed new map:
