'Murica

Post by Anaxagoras »

In the spirit of the Japan thread and the Russia thread, I think we need a 'Murica thread.

Florida gunmaker produces assault rifle 'never to be used by Muslim terrorists'

What magical spell protects it from Muslims? A Bible verse. And a cross. :lol:
It's like kryptonite for Muslims!
A new assault rifle being manufactured in central Florida has drawn fire after the gunmaker branded it the “Crusader” and said it was designed “to never be used by Muslim terrorists.”

Spike’s Tactical in Apopka etched its new $1,395 AR-15 with a Bible verse that says “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle,” MyFoxOrlando reported.

Company spokesman Ben Thomas, a former Navy SEAL, said the scripture is something of an insurance policy to keep it out of the hands of terrorists. The idea came to him during the weapon's development. At the time, the U.S. government was preparing to arm rebel groups in Syria.

“When you make a rifle, you have to understand that it could be used for ill deeds if it got in the wrong hands,” Thomas told the station.
Thomas also told the paper the safety selector that controls the Crusader's trigger has three settings: Peace, War and God Wills It.
USA! USA! USA! :D

Not "America" as much as "The New Jerusalem."

No, not that "New Jerusalem!"

Well . . . actually . . . yes, that New Jerusalem, but Peter found the Phil's mushrooms in the back of the fridge. . . .

You know, what I find fascinating is the care they put into creating a racist sign. They chose the classic "s" which looks like an "f" without the bar because drawing a proper "s" is actually quite difficult.

So much care . . . for so much ignorance and hate.

↑ Quite, and a nice typographical point! Perhaps the pride of being a righteous asshole? (I'm also amused by the "white's". It's strange how the Saxon genitive somehow seems to confer an extra luster. I've been tempted with a "Channel's crossing" (UK ad), a sale of "blue jean's", &c. Froggies of course have a hard time with "its" and "it's". :twisted: And the Krauts have piteously capitulated: Goethe's "Werther's Leiden" are now just "Werthers Leiden". Shame!!!)

Dress it up in respectable artistry and it somehow becomes respectable to those who do not understand respectability.

Yeah well... fact is the sign is in front of this place
http://s3-media2.fl.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/ ... HPw/ls.jpg
which is owned by this guy
http://photos1.blogger.com/x/blogger/53 ... KOZUNA.jpg
Who is, in fact, a racist: he hates wites. He also is known for having the filthiest kitchen in Cincinnati (where the restaurant is located) and is unrepentant. He knows that 98% of the people who eat at his place will get dysentary or colitis or some really nasty gastric illness and, being that he hates whites and really loves to cook, he decided to protect his own people and preclude their custom from his establishment.

And that is the rest of the story.

You are welcome.

There is a scene in Desperado in which a woman complains about the service:
Excuse me.

But....l used to work in a bar....so I know what it's like to wait on people. And I want to tell you that the service here needs immediate improvement.

What do you mean?

What do I mean? Our waiter...where is he? Don't tell me he's still in the bathroom. He never came back to see if we wanted anything else. He never brought us our check. We wanted our check so we could get the hell out of here.

Here.

This should be sufficient. And don't be expecting a tip.

If you don't treat me good, I won't ask you out.

And your beer tastes like piss.

We know! Because we piss in it! That's not all!

Bad beer, bad service.

Don't they know not to come in?

But Jefferson believed in God, or at least he claimed to.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious ... _Jefferson

Typically categorized as Christian deist, who did not believe in the divinity of Christ, Trinitarianism, or "miracles", or the inerrancy of the bible, but did believe in God.
It's more complicated, but that's about it in a nutshell.

I highly recommend the following:

Jonathan Z. Smith, "On the Origin of Origins," Drudgery Divine: On the Comparison of Early Christianities and Religions of Late Antiquity (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1990), 1-35.

which discusses in exquisite detail the correspondence between Jefferson and Adams after years of never speaking to one another over political differences.
