Trouble is, who can tell which are the good and the bad laws?

They are talking about gun laws.

Some states don't even have gun laws, yet have the lowest murder rate in the country.

New Hampshire is such a state I believe, that or Vermont, one of the two.

uhm ....

Thats because no one lives there


Im not really against guns per se..rather I dont give a fuck either way, other than that I am anti-hunting.

I just think Amerikkka has a serious cultural problem.


Also, the JPFO is one of the more wacked-out groups out there.

Murder RATE, not NUMBER of murders. Rate is something like such-and-such per thousand.

Pretty much saw that one coming down the lane, through the garden, right into the parlor window and crashing into the pantry.

The JPFO is tweaked and yet, right on so many things. There's no denying the link between the US GCA 1968 and the Nazi GCA 1938. Shameful doesn't begin to describe it.

Lets get down to brass tacks here, Wayd.

I want to see that gun toting, cowboy, teddy bear raped in the b-hole by a multi-penised dragon-thing.

Not that I want to see that, but I want to see that , knowwhatimsayin ?

it'd be real funny-like.

Well, at CYD, political discussions are generally frowned upon, mostly because they lead to anger with no purpose.

I like the part where it says. "In Japan they can deny people food or water till they confess." I looked at that and said "that's all." I mean where I come from cops still wire electrodes to the gonads. And yes it sounds like it's tinfoil hat time.

Well, that cover is from a DC comic, so it's pretty mild.
Meanwhile, the company that would later become Marvel was doing stuff like this:



Oddly enough, the nazis were portrayed not as badly as Japanese. And I invite you to take a closer look at the pictures, you'll find some negro kids on them.

Anyway, I wonder what would the authors of those comics say if they opened their eyes nowadays and found that so many American comics readers love Anime and manga so much. :)

Of course, many things have changed these days. A grown man wearing a lycra mask and hot pants wouldn't be running around with kids these days.... he'd be on a list you could check to see if one of his type had moved into your neighborhood so you could know to keep your kids away from his house.

Oh, and regarding one of the pics above, Captain America apparently has a girlie punch.

What the issue of gun control and the Japanese have in common is beyond me. However the point of view made would have been valid at least during the WWII era, and prison conditions in Japan are still rather bad relative to how advanced most of the rest of it's society is.


All detention facilities in the country operate extremely strict disciplinary regimes with inmates forced to comply with arbitrary rules rigorously enforced by staff. Prisoners are often not allowed to talk with each other or even make eye contact. Punishment for flouting these rules includes being made to sit in the same position for hours at a time, sometimes over several months, and not being allowed to wash or exercise. Punishment also apply to all those who complain.

According to Amnesty International, some penal institutions still hold prisoners in a "protection cell" (hogobo) as means of punishment. Hogobo cells are special cells constructed for housing prisoners who are deemed to show certain aggravated signs of instability or vulnerability. Inmates are held in metal or leather handcuffs, which are kept on even while they eat. They are made to excrete through a hole cut in their pants (mataware pants).


Conditions in American prison are awful aw well, but are often more of a consequence of overcrowding and underfunding rather then overt punishment technique, however this is no excuse.

Testicular torture is practiced in KY, Mastertran?? Perhaps you are talking about those 'enemy combatants' we transported to Muslim countries for a little 'working over'? Or maybe you are Turkish or something?


And Donotsue, where were you in the 1980's?? We were ALWAYS fightin' the damn russians!

I'm Egyptian and we love the testicular torture over there we just say we don't do it. As for testicular torture in Kentucky considering most anything under Louisville is "Buttfuck Hickville" I would not be surprised.

Truth be told, I was half asleep, still wiping the crust from my crust from my eyes in my post-nap state, when I said that.

What I meant to say was that everyone gets pissed off, and no one gets anywhere or accomplishes anything, 'cause I doubt you could convince New Meat to join the Republican party no matter how many times you tell him he should.

Who in their right mind would do that, anyway?*

OMG POLITRICKS who rob and hold down your zone.

*That, of course. Excluding the privilaged and upperclass. I've been poor all my life so far, and you couldn't begin to imagine how much I hate the republican party.

Okay, *maybe* I did. But in my defense, I was drunk, high and had just woken up from being knocked out by Mike Tyson. I tell ya, he's pretty touchy when you start making fun of his voice. :(

I mean, damn, I thought only 1% of America consisted of rich Republican stereotypes. Hell, now that I know this, I gotta start hitting up random people for booze money--hell, I got a 50/50 chance of finding a millionaire!

Politics is why we should unleash our nuclear arsenal on all of asia (to reduce the population) and revert to the clan structure, becoming primitive hunter-gatherers with a lifespan of 40 - 50 years and a taste for dried meat.

Or not.

I'm really a moderate that dislikes Bush and most democrats. McCaine/Guilliani 2008 baby!

Or not. I don't know any more. Fuck politics. :x

People should be encouraged to be their best, not left as is miserable, not coddled and treated as pets. Growing up in a project on welfare I learned pretty early on that socialism was about a small minority making themselves look like saints and knights by treating us below them as pets, all for their own egos. If we attempted to be as successful as them, we were excoriated for not following their genius and accepting their leadership and protection. For "selling out".

Well, where do we hear of that sort of thing all the time? FURRY!

A small coterie of assholes, losers, fools, total dicks, etc. misbehave, set themselves out for destruction, sink lower and lower beneath the ground floor of human society and a vastly larger number of people defend against all criticism of them in order to make themselves seem like valorous heroes, defending the social downtrodden. Anyone who attempts to grow up and leave the fold is a traitor. Intolerant. A turncoat and worse.

Well, being poor is as temporary as you make it. Hard work, smart work, good old fashioned SELF INTEREST and SURVIVAL INSTINCT can get you out of poverty. People do it all the time. Some spectacularly. Some so-so. Some fail miserably but try again. The alternative is...

So is furry temporary. But furry tends to be more warped than hard core poverty freaks. You know the ones who actually TRY LIKE HELL to STAY penniless. Furs actually strive to be pathetic. And when they timidly ask for help, for advice on how to get out, they reject it because it is what they were taught from day one: LIFE SUCKS, GET USED TO IT, SURVIVE AS BEST YOU CAN.

I don't think being unable to hold a part time job at Target without clashing with management over your desire to express your furry individuality by wearing a tail to work is THE BEST YOU CAN.

To furries lurking through here, I'll say it again: the world works the way the majority makes it work through sheer force of numbers, not conspiracy against you. Life sucks for everyone at some point. Not all life is sweetness and daisies. You know that about your own lives. It is just as true of the rich and powerful. Accomplishment of any kind requires action and willpower.

I work between forty and eighty hours per week for a presently decreasing paycheck due to residential installation work being the only thing availible at this time of year. I know that winter brings a slowdown. By spring I'll be doing $1500/week again on some project or other or in some other field because I chose to quit this endeavor. But I don't settle for a string of part time employment punctuated by long periods of unemployment because the world doesn't work the way I want or because life gets hard at some point or because it doesn't always stay gravy.

And the reason I mention my wife so much is because I HAVE ONE and YOU DON'T(this is being said to problem furries reading). You complain about being alone and no one to love you. You complain about not having friends. You complain about only having other furry guys to have sex with. You complain that you don't even get sex with them. Well, it doesn't change by itself. It doesn't change to having a relationship simply because SOMEONE ELSE came along and rescued you. YOU have to reach out and connect with someone OUTSIDE of furry. More to the point you have to reach outside yourself. Give of yourself. Whatever there is of your self. And in doing, better yourself.

I don't care what you've heard about a few women in furry putting out and fucking like bunnies. Your statistical chance of meeting one of these rarities is about like winning the lottery. And you're not going to win because you aren't even on the playing field.

Whether at work, or in social circles, you have to reach out, reach a middle ground with the outside where you can relate, and control and moderate your extremes or you won't get anywhere.

I know CYDers, I'm beating a dead horse. They aren't going to listen. But it cannot go unsaid. Life doesn't get better without you trying to make it better. This is true for all people. Furries are not helped by their defenders, only held back from the inevitable turning point in their lives by them. And the sooner the change is brought about, the better for them and for those around them. If that leaves the defenders with fewer miscreants to use as therapy pawns, so much the better. Because they are the true cancer in furry.

Anyone who attempts to grow up and leave the fold is a traitor. Intolerant. A turncoat and worse.

You hear this a lot in the angsty teen circles and such, too. You hear it most notably among music snobs that follow some local band from its days of obscurity to its first release under a recognized label. With these kids, as with furries, anyone that apparently manages to make more than a meager existence off of their talents has sold out. Of course, in the original sense, if band X was taken under some label's wing, and suddenly went from grung to boy band overnight, that was selling out. These days, however, it seems if someone has had the good fortune to do exactly what they have been doing in relative obscurity and suddenly turn a tidy profit off of it, they've "sold out." I'm not sure if it's just misperception on the world or sour grapes, but in some circles, like furry, meeting with some kind of recognized success is held against a person or group. Maybe it's just bitterness, since to "sell out," someone had to be interested in buying.. and the bitches complaining about the sellouts are mad because they didn't get a piece of the pie.

I don't think being unable to hold a part time job at Target without clashing with management over your desire to express your furry individuality by wearing a tail to work is THE BEST YOU CAN.

Have you ever seen these guys in action online? OOOOOHhhh man, is it a trip! No matter how realistically feasible and easy an offered solution to their woes might be, they always find some way to dismiss it as an insurmountable obstacle for them. There's always some special condition that prevents them from making good on their wishes.

Liberatarian and radio talk-show host Neil Boortz once went on a tirade about kids that come out of school and mooch off of their parents for years while they find just the right job. The graduate with a degree in freaking philosophy and then complain because they can't find a job that fits them just right. His response? When you're jobless and penniless, any job fits you just right.

To furries lurking through here, I'll say it again: the world works the way the majority makes it work through sheer force of numbers, not conspiracy against you. Life sucks for everyone at some point. Not all life is sweetness and daisies. You know that about your own lives. It is just as true of the rich and powerful. Accomplishment of any kind requires action and willpower.

Ah, but see, it's hard to take action and exert willpower when you're born into a "powerless, ugly human body." :roll: I think that's one of the big draws of furries to some people... it's not the animals or anything... it's the perceived freedom from responsibility they think animals have. They watch their dog or cat sleep all day and wish they could do that, too.

Whether at work, or in social circles, you have to reach out, reach a middle ground with the outside where you can relate, and control and moderate your extremes or you won't get anywhere.

I snipped the paragraph before this one for space, but the two tie together. I've seen this with many furries. They don't reach outside of their interests and comfort zones because of a couple of reasons. First, they want to be "saved." The lonely, miserable social wrecks don't want to screw their courage to the sticking place and hoist themselves out of their pits of despair. They want someone to lower a harness down and pull them up. I think some of this comes from getting their sense of how the world works from the movies they idolize. Take one of their favorites, The Lion King. Simba would have been just as happy to wallow in self-pity for the rest of his days. It took a chance meeting from a piece of poon and a red-assed monkey to bitch-smack him out of his pity party. Or, take Beauty and the Beast. Beast didn't have to make the effort to be sociable. It took some bookworm dame to "see through his gruff exterior to his heart of gold." Blah blah blah blah. So, the big fuzzy guy gets to find a dame, and he didn't have to do a damn thing but be fluffy and pissy. So, the furries start to think this is what they need..... not the balls to just get out there and mingle, but to sit and wait and bitch online until someone breaks down their door and hauls them out into the middle of the street and makes sweet, sweet love to them and inducts them into their circle of friends.

Of course, such things don't happen.

Second, they have absolutely no desire to do anything outside of their interests. This is really sad when you come across the ones that don't have interests in anything not involving furries. Despite their lamentations that they would like a relationship, the truth is they don't want one... because that would mean they would have to do things the other person likes... which might include antiquing, going to see chick flicks that DON'T have talking animals in them, eating someplace other than Taco Bell and sushi bars, and such.

I know CYDers, I'm beating a dead horse. They aren't going to listen. But it cannot go unsaid. Life doesn't get better without you trying to make it better. This is true for all people. Furries are not helped by their defenders, only held back from the inevitable turning point in their lives by them. And the sooner the change is brought about, the better for them and for those around them. If that leaves the defenders with fewer miscreants to use as therapy pawns, so much the better. Because they are the true cancer in furry.

It's kind of like being a parent. You know they're not listening now.. but someday, they might understand in hindsight what you were getting at. It may not make a change now, but it'll reaffirm the positive nature of the change when it happens.

I haven't looked at Furcentral.net for a while, but looking now to see what's going on, I can see that a thread that includes whether or not one would be happy if anthropomorphizing body modifications were possible is still going strong. It's mind-boggling to see people that actually think they would achieve ultimate fulfillment and acceptance if they could have a tail grafted on. Of course, we know the truth is that they would be treated as an even greater social misfit than they are now.

That whole body-mod=happiness game is just like any other human hunger.... you want something and think it will bring you fulfillment. Then you get it, and it doesn't, so you want more. That Catman fellow is like that. Rather than learning to be happy with what cannot be changed (i.e., he will never truly be a tiger), he goes through all of this time and expense to perpetuate the illusion that he is changing what cannot be changed. And while he may state he is happy how he is, regardless of people viewing him as a freak, you can see the unhappiness in him.

They watch their dog or cat sleep all day and wish they could do that, too.



Thats hardly a new idea, or even an uncommon one.

Back when I used to read a lot of different religious stuff, I remember Anton LaVey's mentioning of Dogism and Catism.

"Dogism holds that if you canít eat it, and you canít fuck it; piss on it."

And Catism:

"Donít run, if you can walk.
Donít walk, if you can stand.
Donít stand, if you can sit.
Donít sit, if you can lie down, and
Donít stay awake, if you can take a nap."

Somewhere out there, a furry lurker just got a boner...


:shock:

Thank you for making it seem even bleaker. :roll:

(in reply to Zen Zhu's post)
Yeah, they are like children and watching is like being a parent. I still give a fuck about them, and what do they say? I'm mean-spirited and intolerant. Oh how little they understand.

Wanting to be rescued comes in different forms. You can't go into a relationship expecting to be rescued or fixed. That's not going to be done by the other person. It is in the reaching out to them that you rescue yourself; rescue yourself from depression, loneliness, self-interest, etc.

The other day my wife drove a very long distance in the rain. I was on the other side of the state at work unable to be there for her with the 4WD. She was in her mom's car which sucks on wet roads. I spent the entire six hours praying like you cannot believe, kissing my wedding band, and trying to fight off fear of what might happen. She came through it okay and I realized I'd spent more time thinking of her than my own predicament getting soaked at work. Thinking of someone else took my mind off of my own problems.

It's something small, but it is true. I wish furries could grasp this.

Something else. Sex is one of the strongest drives in humans. Yet furries when given the opportunity to get down and dirty, frequently turn away in fright. You have to wonder, what is the point of obsessing so much about sex in all your furry endeavors yet when it is right there in front of you, you can't do it? Why even bother?

You know in fact, furry wouldn't be so bad if they DID have a lot of sex. That would at least mean they were being exposed to the primal power of their own species in a meaningful way, but that they were doing something that didn't involve furry.

But instead we see a fandom with the biggest case of self-created blue balls in human history.

So it all boils down to the old "they need to get laid" answer.

Never has it been more true. I swear, the fandom can too often remind me of the whole chat room scene in Futurama, where the guys are begging for a girl to show up, and when one does, they wince away, while mumbling "a woman...!" "I'm scared...."

So, furry cons don't need less sex present... they need more REAL sex. HOOKERS FOR EVERYONE!

New rule... you MUST team up boy, girl, boy, girl, boy, girl, etc. on down the line. That's why we need the hookers.. to even out the deck. And we have to pay them A LOT.... there's some folks even crack whores wouldn't touch. If nothing else, let's see if there's such a thing as "prison straight."

I think what they meant is in Japan they have an absolute ban on just any firearms. Even Yakuza wars are going using mainly sharp things, and a patrol policewomen are equiped with a BB guns only.

Man the Yakuza are so cool they get cool glasses and do cool things like sword fights...and I think I rambled a little bit. Policwomen with bb guns now that's funny. I remember when I was little some cops found a Coptic Mobster up in Alexandria with over 600 guns stashed just in his summer home. Between the Mobster and the BB gun lady not a lot would be left would there?
