While I agree that his views are much too extreme, I do say that flag burning should be legal. I mean, Texas v. Johnson in 1989 already determined that flag burning is an expression of speech. As it doesn't harm anyone, I see no issue with it. And as for vandalism of national monuments, that's apples to oranges. Monuments are owned by the federal government, your own personal flag isn't. Once something is your property, in your possession, you can do what you want with it as long as it doesn't present a danger to the public.
User avatar #52183 to #52180 - byposted (11/21/2013) [-]
I find the problem to be this expansion of what "speech" designates. The Supreme Court is due to define money as speech, further turning elections into corporate undertakings.

Can it be my "speech" to pull down my pants in the middle of the road and begin doing my business? It can be, but it goes against public decency and thus is not sanctioned under law. I cannot even do this on my front yard, even though it is my property, for this very reason. Public codes in general can be said to be a violation of speech, expanding this thought. What right is it for some state workers to tell me that I can't have an air conditioner in my window?

Jurisprudence has its basis in the linking of state and society, and the flag is the symbol of society. Flag desecration being sanctioned under the law is an irony, in my opinion, as such.
User avatar #52187 to #52183 - lightarcanine (11/21/2013) [-]
As I said, the action of burning a flag doesn't harm anyone else. Jacking on a street corner or your front yard does. As ironic as it is, flag burning is protected as it should be. The United States has a duty it would seem to protect the accused instead of just laying down punishments. Though the speech may not be popular and offensive to some, those opinions are protected.
User avatar #52198 to #52187 - byposted (11/21/2013) [-]
I know we disagree but the way in which "harm" is being used here is silly.

I could argue that jacking off on a streetcorner doesn't "harm" anyone else either. Burning a flag and jacking off both have the same shocking effects to the public, but neither result in people dropping dead. Why, don't you remember when it was illegal for womyn to dress a certain way and for blacks to drink at certain water fountains by "bigoted" standards?

Billionaires being able to pool tons of money into campaigns doesn't "harm" anybody either. So why continue to regulate campaigns? That's a violation of "speech," etc.

Note that "speech" has gone beyond simply "opinions" by this slippery slope. I, of course, do not consider flag desecration to be an expounding of "opinions" as I have studied the foundations of law. It is dangerous to disregard fundamental truths; law does not exist to protect "speech" in all of its manifestations but to regulate the nation.

Is there like a map or anything where you can see the territory in Syria?
Like if areas are under control by the army or occupied by the opposition?
#52117 to #52114 - byposted (11/20/2013) [-]
This is an old map from earlier this year. (red = SAA, yellow = Kurds, green = Israeli/Saudi Nomadic Goat Herders). Much progress has been made since this map was published: No longer is the situation around Damascus so precarious as is recently evidenced by the capture of Qara, the situation in the southwest near Daraa is very good, Homs's outlying territories are being cleansed, gains in Idlib have been seen these past months with concurrent advances on Aleppo's east and the Kurds have been doing well to put pressure on the ISIL in particular. Insha'Allah, Assad should cleanse them after the goat herders are taken care of!

If it's simply portraying terrorist "activity," of course not. They are still capable of killing civilians in Damascus as they have. It's just that they are the ones fleeing in the Damascus provinces now. It is indeed outdated on plenty of the cities, though. Homs and Qusayr have long been liberated.

A socialist is mad as fuck at me because I'm going to be inheriting a lot of money, and I asked him how I should invest in it

Is this a common trait in socialism?
User avatar #52136 to #52112 - lulzforhiroshima (11/21/2013) [-]
You should invest it into a market that will lead you to profit such as buying a property. This is what my Dad did multiple times in Florida and is leaving me for inheritance other then the house and cars.

User avatar #52131 to #52112 - jewishcommunazi ONLINE (11/20/2013) [-]
Generally, socialists aren't very fond of inheritance, most of us want it to be at least temporarily abolished as soon as the Dictatorship of the Proletariat is estabilished.

Inheritance is private property. A "temporary" abolishment of inheritance would soon turn into the, theoretically at least, confiscation of all private property. Picture related.

Not really. Socialists make it sound that way because they're all members of this class themselves. They're stuck well into the last century and assume they're working in coal mines as they read Marx.

You may understand it but OP may not. Socialists are almost all well off and in college. In that sense, they're not very different from old Socialists except that they live in a much different world than their predecessors. They are championing around 15 dollar minimum wage in Chicago as if it has connection with the Pullman strikes. Quite silly.

"Assault weapons" isn't even a real term. The media fucked it up and made a new category of weaponry. Assault Rifle would be the correct term, but guns they describe have handguns and submachine guns involved and those are totally wrong.

Sooo... You want to work in a labor position, or an insurance broker or... What exactly is it you want to be?

A co-op program is something a lot of colleges have, where they allow students to enter an internship of some kind in a career of the respective major. Sometimes it's paid, sometimes it isn't. The main part of co-ops is to give you experience for the books, but it also serves to give students an opportunity to have a real-time perspective on the career associated with the major, and to be able to decide whether or not they actually want to be in that major.

Got news for you bud; we're not the only ones doing it. We're just the best at it - Norway's probably got their own surveillance system set up, and if they don't, they're working on it.

My father once told me how he had a computer teacher that had a brilliant insight as to how technology was going to be (this was back in the... early 80s? late 70s?), predicting a computer would not only be available to the private home, but also advanced enough to be in the telephone and cellular device, but also predicting that 1984 was going to become a reality through the advancement in technology.

By the way, any idiot can open a college with enough money. And the end result is always some pathetic company like NAU.

It's kind of like those martial arts "dojos" that just hand deliver children black belts when the parents pay a premium rate and they're promised they'll be "taught" to that level in 8 months.

I read just a little, but at first glance, it sounds like ridiculously outright attempt for propaganda, why not just include management lessons instead?

the daily mirror is best described as a slightly less "left" wing guardian presented like the sun or the daily mail... its not the best newspaper around..

Because of liberal arts.

That sounds stupid too, what exactly is it?
User avatar #51913 to #51909 - undeadwill (11/18/2013) [-]
Writing, ethics, art. etc.

Stuff that you can't get a job with.

But they use the classes to influence young children

If it wasn't for the brainwashing it would be acceptable though, I like to draw and stuff.

Enough to pay 2000 bucks for a class?

>Paying for classes.

It sure feels great to live in paradise utopia Yurop (joking).

Jokes aside, free education is essential in my opinion, and people (especially the ones who care) shouldn't have to pay to learn things that will possibly allow them to contribute more in the future.

1. government controls subject matter.

2. They become more about grades

3. quality is lower.

1- Protect from brainwashing through constitution or something (how would private owners not do it aswell anyway?);

2- Isn't school supposed to be about grades? I'm not saying people who are less capable shouldn't have access to it.

3- (X) Doubt; Public schools in the USA tend to be shitty compared to public schools on other developed countries== like paradise utopia Yurop==. Personally, I don't have many complaints on public schools over here.

Private owners have been paid for a service they must provide other they can be taken to court.

It means those with higher grades get in while those with lower grade don't. While it may seem fair poorer people often have lower test scores due to problems at home.

Because we lower the standards and still keep exceptions high. Like for example what is an D in your country?

"It means those with higher grades get in while those with lower grade don't. While it may seem fair poorer people often have lower test scores due to problems at home."

Is there a better alternative though?

"...what is an D in your country?"

I don't know, we're evaluated with grades from 1 to 20, 9,5 up is positive. Below that, you'll have to repeat the test or something.

Liberal arts is a place where many students who are still young and don't realize the class is useless go to. The professors generally don't care about teaching marketable skills but progressive, communist or socialist values.

This class is basically a reaction to that.

"Liberal arts" in American education is just a buzzword for easy shit people do for the sake of a degree--even though it has nothing to do with the traditional term.

its hard to tell if this is a typical american knee jerk everything i don't like or agree with is communism/socialism or if its actually true

The SCOTUS has been socially conservative for a while now. You'd be surprised what kind of nationalistic bullshit they turn a blind eye to.

Milton Friedman - Why Drugs Should Be Legalized Is this an overdebated topic?
#51892 - undeadwill (11/18/2013) [-]
I found this as an ad.

It won't be Hilary. This is what will happen.

Democrats try someone (Female) possibly unknown in order to lessen the failure when a republican wins. The democrats who still have their jobs then institute the full weight of the laws they pass on regulations of business and investors will break the stock market. Thus leading people to say "Capitalism is fail" Then the democrats move back in with anther female (possible Hillary) driven by "muh female oppression" leading to the democrats in key places to lessen up and the investors on wall street to go back to using fraud to keep the system alive a little longer.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxytocin

"Recent studies have begun to investigate oxytocin's role in various behaviors, including orgasm, social recognition, pair bonding, anxiety, and maternal behaviors.[2] For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as the "bonding hormone". There is some evidence that oxytocin promotes ETHNOCENTRIC BEHAVIOR, incorporating the trust and empathy of in-groups with their suspicion and rejection of outsiders.[3] Furthermore, genetic differences in the oxytocin receptor gene (OXTR) have been associated with maladaptive social traits such as aggressive behaviour.[4]"
