    Thread: Does Anyone Think Burn a Koran Day is a Good Idea?
    Who cares?

    Who'd be covering this story if they were burning The Bible? In fact, maybe in protest, we should burn Bibles. In fact, now that I think about it, that'll be the next story.

    BREAKING NEWS: President Obama suggested today that Catholics burn the KJV Bible in protest to those burning the Koran on Saturday. General Petreus agrees. News at 11.

    The White House, Petreus, others are helping make this a story by their responses. When will the White House learn not to weigh in on the news?
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    A majority say "yes" ??
    This speaks poorly for the responders...and maybe our nation.
    In anger, in the past, I have agreed to this nutsy/evil idea....
    But, here, I suspect an influx of tea-party trolls, or just children trying to make trouble..

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Our resident insecure ballot box stuffer(s) are fighting the good fight to falsely portray their views as mainstream again, only one of those votes was not "anonymous"

    We as a nation should take the high road here.
    Reality tends to have a liberal bias.

    Two sides of the same coin.......
    WRONG. I supported the RIGHT of the people to build a mosque on private property in Manhattan, and I support the RIGHT of people to burn any book they want. I just think it makes them look like moronic neanderthals. And, the mosque builders look like inconsiderate douchebags.

    The thing is...it's well within someone's rights to be a douchebag in the U.S. And I support their rights to be that person, if that's what they wish. I also support MY RIGHTS to call that person what I think they are.

    meh, the high road is over-rated. all it does is make you look weak in the eyes of your enemy and encourage them to continue to attack you.

    True. We should just throw out that silly constitution and bill of rights while we're at it. They're just so inconvenient at times, when what we really want to do is torture someone.
