exactly.

this is boring as phuck to watch (for me anyway) but this guy does a pretty thorough explanation of the as he calls it, skidded stall (aka cross control stall). but anyway, prolly what killed the brother at houston gulf.

The left, while they rant sometimes as well, they back it up with documentation and available facts.

I'm not chanting or dancing in the streets over his death. I don't get the point in that and I think those that are look a bit silly. But the idea that we should because someone loved him? Fuck that. Fuck that with a donkey dick.

He was a mass murdering piece of shit. His death was long overdue. In fact, I think after his death we should have wrapped his body in bacon and surrounded it by drooling dogs inside a display case. Then we should have let it tour the country before allowing anyone who lost someone on 9/11 to piss on it.

Someone loved him??? really? Someone probably thought Hitler was swell too but I'm damn sure there was a lot of justified celebration when he died.

I will put this especially for you then, the difference here is you have compassion for one disturbed mass murdering individual, I will have compassion for my entire country.

A little further searching will show that that particular article is perhaps not quite factual.

It has been easy to confirm that this part is certainly a direct quote.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

Do I need to continue?

OK, from wiki

Quote:
Ch. 4 : Love in action, Sct. 3
Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction. So when Jesus says "Love your enemies," he is setting forth a profound and ultimately inescapable admonition. ... The chain reaction of evil — hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars — must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.
This is from the book Strength To Love 1963

Why the preoccupation with MLK quotes? Hasn't that guy been discredited enough? Isn't he the nutter that thought that whites and blacks were equal? er... nevermind.

haha...I just liked the quote when I saw it on someone's FB status. It just seems to be descriptive of the way I feel so I thought it might help people understand my perspective.

I probably should have known it'd be picked to pieces on this site, but I stand by my convictions in this matter, and that's about all I need to say.

I'm just yanking your chain. I respect your feelings on the matter. I may not feel the same way but that is what makes the world go round. If everyone felt the same way we'd be even more screwed than we are with everyone disagreeing.

I'm a history geek, so it just bugs me when quotes are falsified then spread around. It puts untrue words in other people's mouths, i.e. gossip.

Gossip. I learned the origins of that word last week.

Well, whether he said it or not, I think he'd probably agree with it.
