The first sentence might be a response to my post; however, it is so disjointed from it that I’m not at all able to grasp how it applies.


My guess is that it also was intended as a response to gungho’s assessment of YOU being a “me generation” person. But, I will comment on it anyway. Just because you do those thing doesn’t mean that you can’t have a sense of “entitlement” in other areas. Or, that such sense can’t be inappropriately excessive.


It was a reply to you both
Then, by all means available to ya, justify why it was a reply to me.
All I did was make a clarification/distinction of what gungho’s post was about.

YOU confused country w/ govt.


If you are all that touchy about someone helping ya;
don’t bother to make a reply.
Like YOU said: actions speak louder than words.


I am being touchY?
No Sir, it is you and you alone who trying to find something negative here.
Something to bash me for.
He mad A comment You clarified it.
It was nothing but appropriate to keep both of you in my reply.

Personally? No problem with it. In terms of the future of the country? We have a BIG problem with that.

Let me quote one of the top 5 Presidents in history in regards to this, and I will let his words speak volumes and I will add nothing more to this discussion:

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

John F. Kennedy "

If you have trouble reading this and understanding it, sometimes the emotion of the person speaking can drive home the true meaning. Here is the video:

I Disagree wit the notion of serving the govrn. for its them, not us who are the servants.
and one should never judge politicians by their words or emotions, but by their actions.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is it time to drop the death penalty?

Originally posted by vikaTae:

Punisher, this idea of the death penalty for officers of the law for any corruption no matter how small, is simply unworkable. The way you’ve phrased it, it opens up the death penalty based on hearsay.

Both police officers and judges are human. Both are capable of interpreting the law any number of ways, and they may be privvy to facts you are not. You’re basically callingfor their death if they interpret the law differently to the way you do, in your ‘any corruption, no matter how small’.

It would lead to a state without law enforcement, ultimately, or a state whose law enforcement refused to deviate from the letter of the law, thus ignoring the spirit of the law.


With other issues, what differentiates a professional thief from an opportunist thief? Are you setting some sort of boundary? If you are, please explain it.

Why do you have the death penalty for armed robbery, but not have it for armed assault? What’s the difference to your mind, please?

By corruption of the officers of the law who commit acts against the word and/or spirit of the law intentionally for personal gain or or the gain of some one else who is not influencing them by intimidation.
Professional thief is the one who commits theft for the sole purpose of gain economic benefit rather than immediate survivor.

Armed robbers rob for the sole purpose of gaining economic benefit from it someone commits an armed assault and kills someone to gallows with him,other wise, they must pay for the damages, if damages can not be paid, then they must suffer the same damage.
I forgot Rapists in my post, death to them with haste, whether victim forgives them or not.
For all offenses other than professional and law related, if victim or his heirs forgive, perp walks free.

I’m sure executing women who have been raped discourages them from being raped. Makes perfect sense. No wonder their rape statistics are so low!

They do execute for many crimes, but getting raped is not a “crime”.
So, if you guys could lease take your heads out of your arses, that would be great.

I don’t think ya got the gist of what Kasic was saying. Perhaps ya couldn’t hear it any too well because of the sound abating qualities of the abdominal wall? Diddgya see anywhere he mentioned it being a “crime”….at least THERE?

Most anywhere else, it is a horrible crime….very strongly punished.
In the U.S., child abuse is taken very seriously…..IN JAIL by the inmates.


Or, perhaps ya didn’t get Kasic’s point because it was so heavily laced w/ wonderful sarcasm?

In seriousness, the death penalty be based on PROOF. If there is any doubt, no death penalty.

In seriousness, tell me what ya mean by “any doubt”.
What would “beyond a shadow of doubt” be to ya?
Would YOU kill a person while any doubt at all existed?
The only surety I could have would be to see it myself; OR, if someone I utterly trusted w/ my own life did see it and related it to me.

Or may be Kasics post was so full of shit that I could not Understand It.

No I do not oppose west for the sake of opposition, but most of the conflicts of modern world are work of west or facilitated by west and that is why I oppose them.
west needs to stamp you out.

They are welcome to try.
Uh, no. I contribute to posts that make sense. posts that aren’t inherently full of shit.

I’d assume you care for it the same way most zealots ‘care’ for this site, by stumbling across it and immediately realizing that it hasn’t seen enough pro-hezbollah lebanese action!

The anti-Israel movement isn’t some palestinian frankenstein, it’s gone global. I see no reason why lebanon – or whoever claims to speak for lebanon – wouldn’t want to get in on the bandwagon.

I have, at times, contributed something to these threads. At the moment, broad skepticism in the views of arabs – and their sycophants in pakistan – do me quite well, but if you prefer, I hate Johnnybegood’s posts least of all.

If you are too high and mighty for this humble site, don’t bother coming, nobody is forcing your hand.

My complete contempt for you does, though.

YES, if you say something good about the Taliban, you ARE a shill for them. If you pointed out that dealing with the Taliban is probably Afghanistan’s only chance for survival from civil war, I’d agree.

But slobbering all over their collective cock, as you’ve done so repeatedly, is not the answer. I don’t particularly care how violent you are, or what violent actions you’re willing to go to take your goal. Your bluster is quite irrelevant to me, although I do find it enjoyable to read, so by all means keep going, but you have as much depth as Sacha Baron Cohen. When will morons like you learn, that westernizers are not persuaded by garbage? We don’t care how much you threaten, or boast, or whatever. We care what you can bring to the table. If you can’t bring solid facts, then you’re a worthless sycophant for dictators. That’s all.

This Hezbollah shill, for all his faults, is a serious speaker. When he writes, I listen, even if it’s more of the same garbage, because at least it’s palatable garbage, and not the same old ‘attack us and we’ll destroy you’ riff that I’ve long grown tired of. As far as i’m concerned, the Pakistanis can roast. And I don’t much care if they say the same about us. They’ll radiate long before we will, if only because of their own idiotic stubbornness.

So in tour opinion, stating some positive fact about someone, makes you their “shill”?
You, see I think that a positive attitude or an act committed by some one you don’t like, must not be dicounted just because you dislike the person committing the act.
Also, once, I was just like Labayka, then I learned no matter what, You can not change the opinion of most of the people online.
So why bother, its much more fun to just frighten or enrage people than researching hard facts and giving online links and such.
You may have grown tired of this ‘attack us and we’ll destroy you’ but that is the truth.
You mate seem to have a superiority complex, not unlike hipsters. You seem to see the world with a special glass, which shows you every one smaller than they really are.
I still stand by my statement that

Seriously, for many of these westerners, any one talking in contrast to what their media portrays is a goon of the related organisation.

Also you seem to attack the person rather than argument.

Interesting thread topic, but run by an obvious hezbollah shill, so there’s limited space for it to grow into something. Critics are somewhat knowledgeable about the topic (Johnny), but too many stupid analogies to disguise lack of source material. Most don’t know shit and instead rely on generalizations they believe are applicable to many war theatres (winnibago, Neilsenna especially), or technobabble (vika). Oh, and there’s also the pakistani militant shill, I suppose.


It’s no wonder that when I left, people were saying that Crow was the most insightful poster in SD. He’s certainly the only one whose posts I finished all the way.


I’ve never been called that before, and I don’t know why a Lebanese movement would care about an American gaming site.
Seriously, why would Hezbollah care about a gaming site in a country where it has no presence and is considered a terrorist organisation?
If you want to contribute something to the thread, I would be grateful. If not, it means that no one on Kong can prove that HE lost in 2006.
EDIT: Just read the first post and it does look a bit “shilly”. Blame it on my inexperience.

Seriously, for many of these westerners, any one talking in contrast to what their media portrays is a goon of the related organisation.
I mean if say something good about Taliban or any of the freedom fighters who had been fighting in Kashmir, I’m a “Pakistani militant shill” but those who intentionally target civilians just because they are not of same ethinicity or those who want revive naziism
are Revolutionaries and freedom fighters and those who take over land illegaly and then commit acts of violence against natives are “innocent civilians”.

Pride – Love watching people who think they are better than themselves look like tools, couldn’t do with being one of them
Envy – Never seen the point in jealousy
Gluttony – Can’t eat a full Mars bar without feeling sick let alone be a glutton
Lust – Probably the nearest but I’d still say no, I have a huge sex drive, very flirty and think NSA is the best acronym ever. However, I don’t join in with the lads when out and seeing a girl where they do that typical “whoa she’s nice, wouldn’t mind a go on that, look at those tits/arse etc” stuff, I just find it all very distasteful. I don’t tend to look at strangers sexually at all, obviously I can see a girl is my view of pretty, but I don’t lust after women. Passion yes, lust no.

So I’m just curious….how (strongly) would we define wrath here? For instance, if someone gets fired by an employer and they feel it is unjust, is releasing stress by blogging about it wrath?

Or would we only start to consider it “wrath” if they slashed their employer’s tires or planned a shooting spree?

You want a defination of Wrath/
You don’t know what WRATH IS!
You FUCKING DON’T KNOW WHAT WRATH IS?
IN WHAT KIND OF REDNECK HOUSEHOLD WERE YOU BROUGHT UP?
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH, YOUR STUPIDITY IS KILLING ME, GET LOST FROM MY SIGHT OR I’LL DO SOMETHING."

I have severe anger tendencies, yes. it’s not on the hairpin trigger it was during my teen years, but it is still there. I suppose if we’re talking non-traditional sins loyalty is a big one for me, that ties directly into wrath. Within reason if you hurt me, that’s fine. If you hurt those I love, you’re in for a world of hurt. Again, I’m not big on physical punishment; I’m physically weak and that’s not likely to change any time soon. But my mind is keen, and there are all sorts of ways to extract revenge if you know where to look.

But as I say to get me really angry, you have to work at it. There are a few things such as physical sexual assault of a friend, that will get you on the shit-list instantly, where you will stay for the rest of your miserable life. Physical sexual assault of me, is the one thing still likely to end that life there and then, probably along with my own. That’s an absolute no-no. Not again. Never again, and my wrath comes out full force if that even looks remotely likely.

Usually when someone gets on the shit-list it’s through abuse of those I care about, rather than abuse of me. One of the advantages of not having a 100% organic body, is you’re used to pain, and your threshold gets quite high. So I can deal with that. What I cannot deal with is when you’re hurting those I love. Stealing from them, exploiting them, physical trauma against them or against their kids. Depending on how long you’ve been doing it, or what you’ve been doing, you are setting yourself up for a very, very miserable life.

So your revenge will comprise years of suffering eh?
As for me, when somebody pisses me off, I just get a sort of wave of anger, kind of a heat wave, if I don’t do anything in that (which I usually don’t) no one gets hurt physically. After that, if offence is serious, I will look for the ways that hurt them, with in some boundaries and rules of course, not something cheap or unmanly.
\What do you mean that you do not have a 100% organic body?

Oh, absolutely…degrees.
And, as ya point out, even though we are (supposedly?) talking about SIN—whatever the hell (< intended referential pun) that is…very subjective—here for the topic of the thread; if one takes a more objective look at these areas of human behavior, we will see that the bell-curve can be applied.

One can either applied it to each side of the coin…good & bad.
Or, they can combine the two…with one at opposing ends of the bell.
This enables us to view Kasic’s point about how some of this behavior can actually be of benefit.


But, in addition to—or simply an overlaying aspect of that paradigm which brings a strong aroma of subjectivity—degrees is the concept of assessment of the actual behavior that can give some reasonable/rational description of each “level” of the behaviors in consideration.


Plus, while I’m not enough of a theologian to speak significantly on this, there is the whole factor about just how bad can a “sin” be if it is easily absolved (absolution?) by doing some very simple tasks (6 Holy Marys, etc.). I mean, if one isn’t held accountable in any serious measure for their “sins”….then let’s just call them mistakes and muddle onward in life.


Of note, it is my belief that such concepts of 7 deadly sins, 10 commandments, etc. are nothing more than something tangible, able to address the more ethereal nature of spirituality, used by a particular kind of “leadership” (religious?) on the lesser-intellectuals in an effort to manage them.


OH, I probably should muddy up the waters by bringing in: sins of omission and of commission.
Plus, would one be capable of gluttony were they to not be starving to death because they live in horrid conditions?


Holy Crap Karma, your answers are as straight as a corkscrew.
Wrath: I’m a wrathful being, no doubt about that. It usually takes a good while or a concerted effort on the other party’s part to get on to my ‘smite thee’ list, but once you are on … you never come off. I don’t trust easily, and as a direct counterpart, I forgive very rarely.

Wrath for me, almost never takes the form of a direct confrontation. If it does, it be verbal rather than physical. But that is usually part of a larger effort to seek revenge, using every trick and technique I know, as well as my awareness of systems and how they interconnect. Doesn’t have to be me you hurt either. Hurting my friends is actually rather worse than hurting me, and if you assault them, or assault their kids, well hell hath no fury… and it tends to come wrapped in my form.


So you are the perfect embodiment of a woman scorned.

I think it’s important to take into consideration the degree. At what point does anger become wrath? When does self interest turn into greed? Is it being lazy if you don’t always give all of your effort into every task? Is pride arrogance, or is it as simple as being more than comfortable with a position or belief? Is lust experiencing any sort of sexual desire, or is it only when it is obsessive/uncontrollable? Are you envious to want to have something you don’t have? Is gluttony overindulgence or anything greater than the minimum required?

Under my definition of each term (the extremes) the only one that really fits me is sloth. I put minimal effort into pretty much everything because I am capable of accomplishing tasks without trouble. There’s never been anything that challenged me (except Calculus 1 because my teacher did not teach the material). For example, I had three months to write my macroeconomics paper. It is due tomorrow. I finished it an hour ago and spent ~3 hours total. I’m confident I will get an A, but on terms of how much I tried, it’s on the order of 3-5% of what I could have accomplished if I wanted to do my best. In fact, I had an issue getting Word to numerate the pages correctly and I really didn’t care, so every page past the second is numbered as 2. Meh.

Maybe gluttony too, if you count eating a large brownie during that time. Speaking of which I’m going to get more right now :)

I’m not fond of the idea of these being sins. All of them are natural human tendencies. While some are obviously harmful or bad when taken too far, there’s nothing wrong about being angry, wanting more, relaxing, being proud of your accomplishments, having a libido, experiencing a desire to have something you do not, or consuming things you don’t need to survive. A lot of them can even be good in moderation.

Dude, you are not lazy, you are just extremely efficient just like, I have never exerted my self on anything my whole life, I mean when I was studying, it was a few days to each subject and I would score 70+ marks.
As for my Sins, Wrath and Gluttony would be mine.

According to wikipedia,
“The seven deadly sins, also known as the capital vices or cardinal sins, is a classification of vices (part of Christian ethics) that has been used since early Christian times to educate and instruct Christians concerning fallen humanity’s tendency to sin. In the currently recognized version, the sins are usually given as wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.”
So by this definition 7 deadly sins are:
* Wrath
* Greed
* Sloth
* Pride
* Lust
* Envy
* Gluttony
So what is/are your deadly sin(s)?
