• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Radio,

In my view, when someone says: "God's chosen people are thieves", it's the same as saying "Jews are thieves"! Do you really believe that?

If you had said something like: "These settlers and their supporters are thieves", I would agree with you.

If you said something like: "The present leadership in Israel are thieves, openly stealing Palestinian land in the West Bank.." Again I would agree with you!

Do all Jews support Netanyahu and his Likud policies? No.

Personally, I believe the only just solution is a greater Israel that encompasses all of Gaza and the West Bank and that gives every Palestinian equal rights just as Jewish Israelis have. I'm in a minority view on this, and it will probably never happen, but it's the only thing that will work. The next best thing is the two state solution, but that means giving up ALL the land and control of the occupied territories, going back to the 1967 borders.

Let's be careful in these discussions how we characterize other religions, races, ethnicities. I do not believe ALL Muslims are intent on creating a World Caliphate, in fact, I believe those Muslims that believe that are in a minority and are the extremists.

Again, there are Jews that openly condemn the taking of West Bank land, period and are going so far as to boycott institutions and businesses that profit from these actions:

Staff and Board | Jewish Voice for Peace

Read their Mission Statement and then see what you think, Radio.
Fair point.

I agree with what you are saying. In the name of religion there have been many crimes done, I agree that not all the people in a religion are extremist.

In my opinion religion in general is a bad thing. I mean as if we need yet more avenues of separation in our world. Peace is hard to come by when you have 4,200 estimated religions in the world and they all think they are right. How can anything good come from that?

Which is why I'm an atheist, myself!

For me, being Jewish is a cultural/ethnic identity and nothing more.

I have trouble with any notion of forming a government based on a religion, so the idea of a "Jewish State" rubs me the wrong way. Believe me, I am in a very small minority on this and I've been labeled a "bad Jew" or a"self-loathing Jew", etc from other Jewish folks because of this.

I feel the same way about other countries self identifying as being a religious state, such as Iran or Saudi Arabia, or ANY country anywhere on the planet that forms a government based on ANY religion.

Yes, I do believe, Radio, that religion, in general, causes more problems than it solves.

And now back to our regularly scheduled Tavern programming!

LOL.

Numbskull #1 Rob Goes Retard deflects a challenge, refuses to answer anything, and then claims victory.

I think he got his debate skills from Obama. Without his teleprompter(FOX) he can't mumble through anything.
Ouch a blow to the head......LOL That had to hurt.

Nope, the Rob I origionally started this thread for.

Hopefully he gets the notification and reads about his 'Charitable Religion'


Oh, it is the same Rob, then! N1RGR, yup.

I'm pretty sure he left Radio Reference because of some shenanigans directed towards him personally here in the Tavern.

Maybe he's lurking, I dunno, but I know him as man of his word; once he sets out to do something (or not do it, in this case) he does as he says.

It'll be interesting to see if he replies!

Kayn,



Just for grins and giggles, I looked Rob's stats up and he hasn't posted anything since 2014, just so you know. 73

Yea, I am not expecting a reply. I know Rob has left. Now we have a few Rob replacements. Same tired Conservative Christian Right arguments, from the dim witted suckers that fall for the conservative Cristian mantra:

Whine that woman want to make decisions about their body
Complain it is not the 1950's any more
Attack anyone that wants to be progressive
Deflect any sort of facts that refute their beliefs
Insult anyone that disagrees that Christianity is needed to be good citizens.

I was having the same battle in another forum.

These "love thy neighbor" and "love thy brothers" use their votes to hurt others. Oh, and for more military so that military can kill innocent people and create terrorists.

And I get told I have no morals when Christians of today are morally bankrupt.

I will care about people and let those who claim to care about people by their teachings lie all they want while I will walk the walk.

I haven't been posting but this hit the park.
