Huh. I was doing a little refresher on KAL 007 and came upon this rather strange article from 2012 about victims' family members who believe that their relatives are still alive and living in Russia thirty years later.
Ever stranger, in the comments section we find a poster or two who believe that KAL 007 was shot down because Rep. Larry McDonald, who apparently was also the Chairman of the John Birch Society, was exposing "the New World Order."

Sounds plausible to me.
Pot is reference to marijuana is a shortening of potiguaya, a Mexican Spanish word meaning cannabis leaves.
Huh, learn something new every day here in the OTD.

I'm sad to see that I've already been beaten to the punch in pointing out that my favorite North American mayor ("I've got enough pussy to eat at home") is Canadian, alas.

No, I think it is unlikely that I will make it to 2051.
As I said, you are free to dismiss the article as you please. I provided other links to the same topic for your perusal since you objected to the Mondoweiss piece. But I'm pretty sure Max Blumenthal isn't from the Islamic world.
Woah, he's Sidney Blumenthal's son? Learn something new everyday in the OTD!
My bad. It was in a thread about Detroit.
But here's the article. It only mentions three states, but in two of them it sounds like there was a direct link.
Well, I don't have a position on whether you guys are being trolled or not, but I do remember in a thread about gun control after being berated by Comrade X about a lack of giving a shiznit about the Founding Plutocrats coming across an article which averred that there were states that had allowed blacks and women who met the property qualifications to vote, but then took voting rights away from those groups when they introduced universal white male suffrage.

I suspect that he is referring to the disparity in casualties, but, alas, I am not Max Blumenthal. You can probably contact him if you'd like to ask him why he called it a "one-sided assault." I believe he is one of the leading figures of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, so the two of you should have a lot to chat about.
If those two points that you object to lead you to dismiss the article, well that, of course, is your prerogative.

Having given my "Israeli's are not a bloodthirsty tribe of child killers, war means unintentional casualties" speech... I believe this round of fighting is almost exclusively Israel's fault. Following the union of the Hamas with Patah in the Palestinian government, Israeli leadership has been anxious to find away to undo the union, not wanting Hamas to get a stronger political foothold than it already has. Using the kidnapping of the three Israeli children as a flimsy excuse, they sent the IDF to try and break the new government by force. When it was later found out that while "searching" for the children (in practice taking dozens of prisoners with no charges against them, wrecking homes and public buildings, and disrupting life in any way possible) the army already knew they were dead... that's inexcusable. That was a pointless, dangerous provocation. And lo and behold, Hamas retaliated. And when they did, they did it in such force that Israel had to retaliate too... and from there to here it was the usual spiral of violence.
My Israeli expatriate comrade seems to forward a lot of articles from this Mondoweiss website:
Doubling down, baby!
The Cookie Lobby is just another example of our corporate masters reducing us to automatons and welfare leeches. In fact, the whole system, from the halls of Congress to the local Chamber of Commerce, seems to be predicated upon reducing us to neo-serfs, breaking our backs at the convenience store, handing out Red Bulls and Doritos to crazy check recipients.
Clearly, the answer is to strike the takers from the welfare rolls.
"The One Percent is a 2006 documentary about the growing wealth gap between America's wealthy elite compared to the overall citizenry. It was created by Jamie Johnson, an heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, and produced by Jamie Johnson and Nick Kurzon. The film's title refers to the top one percent of Americans in terms of wealth, who controlled 42.2 percent of total financial wealth in 2004."
I wonder if the kiddie rapist's in it.
