I always wondered about that inane grin

And on a more serious note...

-- Badtux the Picturesque Penguin


  1. In this case I don't agree with Lennon.

  2. Some sort of 'special sauce' comment.

  3. Yeah, I have to say there are occasions when violence is justified.

  4. The problem with violence when you are dealing with The State is that all you have is whatever hand weapons you can gather, while The State has tanks, bombs, and atomic weapons. Violence against The State is a loser's game unless you have an external source of support to provide you with weapons and money (since you'll have to somehow pay for the ammo to keep the weapons working), or unless there is a good chance of the security forces of The State coming over to your own side -- in which case they're in the driver's seat, not you, and typically Bad Things Happen (i.e., usually it's *not* an improvement).

Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
