Use your thinking parts, son.  I don't approve of nuclear power, but the technology exists, people use it, and I don't see why some should be allowed to while others aren't.  

Criminy.

You're not making any sense. Nobody should have nuclear power, but everybody has the right to have it and should?

I'm curious, where do you come down on this issue Pidgeon?

On whichever side he thinks will rile people up. He's outrageous!

So the number of countries with nuclear power should increase, even though you don't approve of it?

Don't give me that smug BS, you know your opinion has holes in it.

I don't like where this is going. Calm down everyone. We all have a right to our own opinion.

I don't think anyone has a right to anything.

What's your opinion on the matter, Pidgeon?

As my sister commented to me, it was awful nice to hear a president say that Iran has a right to pursue peaceful nuclear power (not that I'm a fan of nuclear power, mind, but why shouldn't Iran have it if others do?) and that the Palestinians were entitled to their own state.  Imagine Reagan saying that!


I strongly disagree with the first point

Hey, I don't think anyone should have nuclear power; I just don't see why Iran can't when we can.

Quote
and mildly disagree with "are entitled to" in the second.

As entitled as the Israelis are, anyway.



I'm more of a realpolitikcian.  It goes along with my Utilitarianism.   If you think that Iran is less than or just equally likely to *use* nuclear power in an offensive weapon as, say, France, then I think you're wrong, but I understand your opinion.  If you're couching global issues in terms of "fairness," we might as well quit discussing this now.


I'm going to leave the Israel-Palestine question alone.  I believe there's just no point in discussing that in this forum, period.

I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Why can't you be bothered when I can be bothered whenever stuff that bothers me starts happening? 

It's not fair.

I don't know that I would necessarily be opposed to this.

Ok ok ok, I apologize for whatever.

I still stand by what I said, but I really am not that educated on the matter. I was just going by common sense.

I laughed when I read that the CIA never told anyone about what meetings Cheney attended regarding torture.

Even though he is no longer in office.


What happened to the records of G.W.'s dad's time in office.


Does Iran/Contra ring a bell for anyone but me?





And Alex Jones?
