My Standards

I will link to any blog post that includes the phrase "Fuck you, Chomsky, you faggot."

From the original article:

"There are some who claim that torture is a nonissue because it never works--it only produces false information. This is simply not true, as evidenced by the many decent members of the French Resistance who, under Nazi torture, disclosed the locations of their closest friends and relatives."

Irony is dead.

Is Chomsky a faggot? Cause I think I saw some documentary or other that showed him traveling around with his wife, going places to give speeches, etc. Not that this proves he's not a faggot. And even if he's a faggot, that's OK. Earlier today I was reading an old comment of mine at Fafblog where I quoted the Bible as indicating that g*d wants us to kill faggots. But I didn't really mean we should - I just wanted to point out that g*d's word (as many refer to the Bible) includes a lot of advice that isn't really very relevant in a a different sociopolitical context.

As for Dershowitz, if I'm in doubt about an issue and someone makes me aware of WWDD (what would Dershowitz do), that helps me to decide, by reducing uncertainty about what's reasonable.

ch -- "torture" is too ambiguous to use as a safeword -- and he calls himself an educator.

mistah charley, ph.d.Quite right. THE BIBLE describes the Laws and Rules for an ancient agrarian society which practiced BLOOD SACRIFICE.(no TEMPLE no sacrifice)
