Armageddon In Paris

Post by Reub » Fri Nov 13, 2015 4:36 pm

Any doubt that it's emissaries of the religion of peace? Dozens dead all over Paris. A hundred young hostages.

Maybe if we stick our heads in the sand they'll like us and they won't come here?

i heard the Muslim immigrants are voting for a new french state motto

"veni vidi Vichy vici"

"I came; I saw; they collaborated; I conquered"
Government 2020+ - a BANANA REPUBLIC - if you can keep it

Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence

If there's any personally-applicable lesson to learn here, it's this: if they try it here, shoot back. Carry your guns. I'm wearing one right now and you should be too. Don't go down without a fight. Do your part to protect your society and your civilization.

The Eagles of Death Metal, the so called "American Band" at the concert hall is a band that I have followed since their inception and would likely have attend their concert if it were in my city.  Craziness.

That's why they won't try it here, or if they do, they won't be very successful.
Unless it's in a "gun free zone", of course.  :(

Obama just told me that we can't rush to judge who was behind this, so I'm going to wait and see.

I suppose in most states, rock concerts and sports stadia are gun free zones.
Stay free, my friends.

I know, but from the media I have watched they were being referred to as just the "american rock band", or something along the lines of the "Eagles of Rock Music".
