    Kudos to the Austin Powers reference.
    Even showing the soles of your feet is a grave insult over there. What kind of weird, ****ed up society would go nuts if you showed them the bottom of your feet, but would be highly insulted if you did not let out a loud, raunchy, and smelly fart at the dinner table? Damn, come to think of it, if it wasn't for their politics, I would feel right at home over there.

    I think that there is a big misunderstanding here, throwing shoes is not freedom of speech...throwing shoes to another person is an attack, a physical one.

    Freedom of speech is what my father taught me to be when I was a child when he told me that people can say whatever they want about me because "words gone with the wind" and I can react the way I desire at that moment, but, a single physical threat against my physical integrity calls for my inmmediate rejection, defense, run away, etc.

    Even the Iraqui prime minister is 100% wrong when he excused the event with the words that such is what happens when freedom of speech is allowed. That is not true, because I can bet that Saddam sent to kill to thousands of Iraquies who tried to kill him or did threat him as well, and thousands of people mean that they indeed "expressed physically" their rejection to his regime.

    If this is a case of "freedom of expression", then the Egyptian journalist should be released at this moment and no charges should be imposed to him, but as you can know, he is assumed to be eight years in jail because what he did, this is to say, because he indeed made a physical attack to another person, in this case, the president of US.

    I did laugh about how good president Bush evaded the pair of shoes, but I wasn't happy about the event. This is like to watch those shows where people do stupid things like trying to jump a ramp from building to building and get injured breaking their bones, or people in their houses trying to do extreme activities and ended with injuries as well, all that is funny, I laugh a lot about those events but this doesn't mean that I am happy that such accidents were deserved or similar.

    I think that the Egyptian journalist might think that he was right when he "insulted" president Bush that way, I think I can understand that he might enjoy the simpathy of many arabians or muslims, but such must never be the reaction of americans. No american can be "happy" about what happened with president Bush, as I explained right above, we can laugh about the trowing of shoes but we cannot be happy because this attack happened against president Bush....and definitively, this is not a case of freedom of speech...by any means.

    Ah yes, let us appointed the great and all knowing Chanda to be the all powerful judge of everything potentially wrong in this world. Only the great and mighty Chanda can deem what is ABSOLUTELY true, beyond a shadow of a doubt, and is worthy of assulting someone over so that such an assult becomes an insult.

    You think you have legitimate disagreements with Obama? Not if the great and mighty Chanda does not believe it so! You may only assult those that the all knowing Chanda dictates is worthy of it!

    I believe that is not a "fart" but a "burp" the compliment given to the food at the dinner table. At least that is what I understood about eastern customs when I watched an old movie long ago.

    Re: Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip

    Actually, lets extend this reasoning.

    If You BELIEVE someone did something very bad, you may break any law against them as long as it doesn't physically hurt them it seems by Chanda's AMAZING logic.

    So I mean...think a teacher failed you wrongfully? Well, screw vandalism charges...go smear dog poop and toilet paper all over their house. It doesn't hurt them, its just an insult!

    Think that 40 year old guy at the retail store dating an 18 year old is a horrible pedophile? Well, its perfectly okay for you to then break into his store and leave with a few laptops. It doesn't hurt the guy, its just getting him his just deserts.

    Think that cop pulling you over for "only" going 3 over is just OUTRAGEOUS! Well, drop your pants and let the golden rain fly. Piss can't HURT the officer, so he should just accept that you're showing him an insult and he shouldn't do a thing to you.

    Yes, its wonderful folks. Life according to Chanda. Simply BELIEVE that someone wronged you and you're free to break the law

    Except all the stuff you are talking about doesn't relate to death and invasion.

    Re: Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip

    Fine, lets even play that.

    Lets say a guy got drunk, drove, and hit your father and killed him. You have no clue if he's done it to other people before. Is it then okay for you to then go, throw bricks through the guys windows, spray paint his house, TP the tree's, and dig up the front yard? When the cops come to arrest you should there be a public outcry that you're not violating the law, you're "Insulting" him because he didn't actually get hurt, and you're justified because he killed your father.

    Lets say your state decided that they're putting in a new high way and they need your business's property for an off ramp. Yes, they do pay you a bit of money for the property (more than its worth perhaps), but the fact of the matter is you don't want to go. So you break into you hack into the local governments computer, find out the universal code for the number pad locks on the building, and publish it all over the net to embarass them and possibly inspire others to do illegal acts against them with that information. Should you just be shrugged off, ignored, not arrested at all because I mean...sure, you're breaking the law, but they invaded your place of business, took it over, and you just really really wanted to insult them.

    So is what you're telling me is that laws only should apply, unless you really really don't like the guy that the law was broken against, and thus it should just be allowed?
