You're all sorts of a dick for having less sympathy for someone being murdered because they have a political opinion that differs from yours.

No, that's not what I said.

I don't care what political opinions she had. That's not why I have less sympathy for her allowing herself to be run over by a bulldozer. Please read this carefully:

Rachel Corrie was in Palestine protesting the US by burning a mock US flag and teaching Palestinian children to do the same. That is an ACTION, not a belief. I don't have reverence for the US flag, but when I see someone go to a foreign nation and publicly burn their own country's flag, that's not merely dissent. That is an entirely different message. Dissent is one thing, and it doesn't involve burning flags.

Rachel Corrie's publicly burning a US flag in Palestine was a declaration that she was an enemy of the US.

I should also mention that she allowed herself to be run over by a bulldozer in order to be a martyr. She had enough time to move away from the bulldozer, but she CHOSE to run over. That was her choice, and it wasn't an accident.

So, if I'm a dick for being less sympathetic to a woman who declared herself an enemy of the US because she allowed herself to be martyred, then fine, I'm a dick. But don't characterize me as judging people based only on their beliefs. I judge her because of her actions, which were hostile to my country.

She sounds like a delight. She'll be missed.

I thought Al was referring to the hitchhiker girl, but Rachel Corrie is someone else...Not sure how we got on this subject??
RIP Uncle Al. Always in our T's&P's

I was commenting on the site Redflag, a reactionary right wing news site, and mentioned that sometimes even sites like that get important fragments of news that are intentionally omitted from the US mainstream media.

I was absolutely not commenting on the hitchhiker.

That's all ... sorry for the distraction. Back to the subject at hand, the cis-oppressive shitlord patriarchy.

Is hitchhiking really illegal in that many places?


I know it is illegal on the federal interstate highways, which effectively thwarts long distance travel. I don't know about all the secondary roads in the 40 states.

Huh...I didn't think it was, searched online a bit, found conflicting information,
From Hitchwiki
most states it's illegal to hitch from the interstates (motorways) themselves (though enforcement of this rule varies), but you can typically stand at on-ramps (highway entries). That being said, understand that the ramps are still technically considered interstate property and are illegal for pedestrians to be on, although it is almost without exception permitted if you stand in front of the "no pedestrians" sign.

It is illegal on all interstate highways. Beyond that:

Michigan Creates ‘Safe Space’ For Students Afraid Of Debate On Feminism

During a recent stop at Rutgers University, protesters disrupted the event and smeared fake blood on their faces. Afterwards, the members of various student organizations gathered for a group therapy session to cope with the effects of Yiannopoulos’s visit.

These are our future leaders, peeps. We're doomed.

I'm starting to like this guy (Milo Yiannopoulos). I guess I should maybe go back and listen to the ACS show with him on it.

His current college tour is called the "Dangerous Faggot Tour." He founded a scholarship exclusively for white males. His troll game is strong.
