    I couldn't give 2 fucks about what happens in Syria. Why do we need to get involved in another shit hole country? Seems like both sides in this war represent each armpit of humanity. For some shock entertainment, Youtube recent footage from the civil war going on there. It seems like everyone has a gopro strapped to their helmet. Some crazy stuff.... Not posting a link due to NWS.

    Russia's hands aren't clean in this either. Airstrikes on an oil producing nation? Is it just a coincidence that about 75% of Russia's economy is based in natural gas?

    But I agree, who gives a fuck about Syria?

    I'm moving to Australia. When the shit hits the fan, I'll be alive going, "WTF mate?"

    And no GMOs in my food...

    As far as guns go, it's actually a system similar to NJ. Apply for a permit citing a reason (as easy as hunting or target shooting), wait the prescribed time, get your gun. Only real difference I've seen is that they have different permits for pretty much every different type of gun.

    I'm kind of divided on this subject. Part of me thinks that we should just step back because it's our enemies killing our enemies, why should be intervene? Let them destroy each other.

    The other part of me says that we should do something because of the chemical warfare aspect. They are violating the geneva convention and if there is no punishment for their actions, what prevents them from conducting another chemical attack, possibly on US soil?

    Then yet another part of me thinks that Obama just wants to retaliate so it appears that he has finally found his pair of jewels underneath that skirt.

    Considering a few countries have already threatened to retaliate if we do decide to take part in the attack, I'm not sure this is a wise move on our part. Personally, I'm just not willing to bet that all of the countries threatening to retaliate are bluffing.

    But this is foreign policy and politics, which basically translates to the world's largest dick-sizing competition. So, naturally, the US will have to be involved in one way or another.

    This thread shocks and appalls me.

    There is simply too much to correct here - But Slush's opinions on "The government letting him (insert.. well, any word here)" makes me particularly angry.

    buying an m16?
    watching a donkey show?
    have a private conversation on the phone?
    send private emails?
    let you drive your car as fast as you're capable of?
    have a real voice on how laws are written and which ones are passed?

    And those are just social issue.

    There's a lot actually. Part of me wants a real democracy, but then I remember how many people love jersey shore....so i live with what i got, but it could always be better.

    I was more asking which ones I had referenced. I realize I have limited "rights". What I said about Australia was not just a joke, I'm seriously entertaining becoming an expatriate. Doesn't hurt that 3 of the top 10 "livable cities" are in Australia.

    On a worldwide scale they are more limited rights. They use to be like Texas, if you can load it, you can own it, but then there was a few high profile incidents followed by a media campaign to limit rights. Sounds familiar...
