If you really want perfect balance, you may add a Nietzsche book.


How about we just not burn ANY books or texts? When has that ever been an appropriate response to anything?

Qué?


That's actually not far off. Mao had a cult built around his story and personality.

But it's not a religion. There's a huge difference.

Well, there is the threat of freezing to death. It's an appropriate response to that.

Begin to learn Spanish.

Certainly is! Muslims HATE the cold; it's why they're centered in all those hot countries, and not in, say, Russia, or Greenland.

Related, and unfortunate: I wanted a chart showing the population density of Muslims around the globe, so the first thing I googled was "muslims per capita." First page, one of the results was "rapes per capita." That's... unfortunate.

He graduated Cape Girardeau Central High in 1969. Another member of the class of '69? Radio talker Rush Limbaugh.


While the youth cultures on the coasts were experimenting with acid, Cape Girardeau youth were apparently experimenting with crazy pills and bad haircuts.

Good idea ! I suggest Terry Jones goes burn his books in Greenland, where it's really needed. Far North. He could maybe even convert some Eskimos:

"Where does this warm come from ?
-Koran.
-Allah etc !"

oh, poor fred phelps - he must have been so annoyed at having someone else take over the "lunatic fundamentalist pastor" role on the nightly news.

Instead of a bucket brigade, I suggest counter protester showing up with BIG black boards so they could screen off any possible coverage. A literal showing of the people telling the crazies to shut up and all that.

Anyway, I hope the media has realized that the WBC is just pointless to cover because they haven't done anything new. One can hope, right?

It seems like coverage has certainly tapered off, until they find some crazy new and appalling thing thing to protest. Lately it seems the counter-protests get the real coverage, like at comic-con and when they protested twitter.
