You should be fined very heavily. You are not a good and responsible citizen.
Say what you mean and mean what you say. Funny thing, a story on climate change and recommendation to act was on the front page of the paper here. I haven't read it in years but noticed it in a store. Guess the admission that the nsa is spying on your text messages wasn't important.

Hey Buck.
Do you have a view as to which religion is the most stupid?
I'm thinking about joining up in one where I'll be an immediate big shot.
Of course, I'd have to give up my Holy Church of Catcher, unless it's allowable to have allegiance to more than one religion.
You don't need to do anything then. You are already in the dumbest one

Cali does have some amazing geography, you're right. But unless you're really wealthy, living here is pretty crappy. There's so much smog, the skies are usually grayish-brown. The traffic is friggin horrible, being on the freeways is like being in a parking lot. Most people are so stuck on themselves they can't see straight. Illegals pour in from all sides to take advantage of the stingy rich people. Shootings and robberies are commonplace. Gun crime is through the roof. Taxes are out of control. House prices are still shit.
You'll have hard working people here living right next door to some section 8, HUD crack white and her thug boyfriend and both sets of people have the same living conditions.
Everything is do overpriced here, I swear that if the "Big One" ever comes and California slides into the Pacific, the Pacific will just spit it out saying "I can't afford THAT!"......
And to top it off, stupid ass Californians elected Schwarzenegger.
Schwarzenegger....
Cali sucks. Vacation somewhere else.
Yea, I laughed when he was elected. No doubt that when I was working in your area because things had just crashed and could stay in a Hilton for 50 bucks colored my view too. And your traffic is like nothing I'd ever dealt with. In fact I worked on Sundays (something we never did here) because I could cover more ground as it was the only light traffic day.

Did you see where the head of the NSA said because they hasn't had any complaints in ten years prior it was proof that someone was doing things right. Because you can't be spied on if you don't know your being spied on!

LOL...it's amazing these people aren't on corners with a monkey an organ grinder let alone running the most covert intelligence agency in the world.

How can someone actually argue that if they didn't get caught then they didn't really do it?

This could be a profound development for repair of the Topix atheist brain.
"They found the highest agreement between structure and information flow in the “default mode network,” which is responsible for inward-focused thinking such as daydreaming."
Normal people are easily snapped out of it by external influences. Perhaps insertion of a transducer increasing the voltage required for such can help them.
You should see how drug use, especially in the developmental years, can interfere with normal brain functioning.

No. Catcher is on record moaning about climate change. Imo if it bothered him so much he might want to cut down his time on planes as well as his speeding.

BTW, Catcher, where you gonna move to when CA dries up?
You have too many people to recover from that drought you are having now. Big difference between the conditions now and any time in the past.
Ready for drinking water recycled from sewage? Drones spying on your jacuzzi level? Sky high water and sewer rates?
You can't recover from the damage you have already done.
That's nothing to the taxes the liberal state and local governments are larding on them.

Hope they grease 'um good.

Put the gas tax up to $15 a gallon. They vote for liberalism - make 'um feel it.

Yes. The other night I was looking for a link to give you on a general that testified last summer on it. Not since the Church hearings of the 70s have we seen our government at this level with contempt. And now technology is mind blowing.

Dave Nelson has deciphered The Topix Atheist code.

OK atheists, at our weekly meeting on Tuesday, somebody has to come up with a new code.

7 p.m., at the Holy Church of Catcher, right after the happy hour. Same password as last week.

You vomit a lot of bigoted, hateful views.
Homophobic views are included in your bigotry.
Thanks for your offer to discuss some of your other bigoted views, but I'm busy focusing on your homophobia at the moment.
He really couldn't have written a more reasonable post. He thought the fliers were uncalled for and just mean. He doesn't know why people single out homosexuality and doesn't think they should. Most the stuff he says is in humor and targets all groups equally in fun.

I personally have found it somewhat amusing to see that you go for the bait every time

Although when you respond how you do to posts like these it just looks desperate and petty. Are you really that angry that you haven't been able to convince anyone else that RR is a terrible person? And do you see that as a personal failure or professional one counselor? Although in your defense you are trying to argue a pretty weak case.

And it's not like I think RR needs my support. It actually doesn't even matter to me that it is RR in these kinds of situations. It's more that the post you responded to is normally the kind of posts that allow people to understand each other better and bridges gaps. That is a good thing. Most people would never think to try to chit on that. It's not like you won't have other posts to try to convince people he is a horrible person. Maybe not targeting posts that are good exchanges to have in a civil society would be the better option for a humanist?
