If you have suffered a tragedy and someone says, “you’re in my prayers” with sincerity, and you respond with some egotistical shit about being atheist you are an emotionally inept moron.
For real though like think about it. If someone is religious, there’s really no kinder sentiment they can express than appealing to the highest power they know for your recovery. Whether or not you think it “works” is irrelevant— the kindness is absolutely real.
To be moral is to always do what you feel is right regardless of what the outcome will be.
• Getting hopped up on amphetamines and dancing around naked in traffic may feel right, but the outcome will be terrible. It is not moral.
• Cheating on your wife/husband may feel right. It is still not moral.
• Lying under oath to save your ass may feel right. It is not moral.
• Punching a politician in the nose may feel right, but the outcome won’t be good. It is not moral.
• Child molesters may think sexually abusing young children feels right. It is, of course, not moral in any scenario.
I could go on and on, but I believe you got the point. This is the problem with this “feel good,” “do what you feel,” “I am my own overseer” mentality. When you put your trust in yourself, you are prone to exceeding your own moral restrictions. This is why many of the great philosophers believed that a culture without being held accountable to a higher power was destined for immorality. Mankind is fallible and weak to temptation. The idea of a higher power put a check on your corrupt behavior. This is precisely why “Under God” is used as well as why people swear upon the bible.
This^ Morality is just another name for ‘self-control’. Without it, you will never be successful in life.
As we take the time to remember 9/11/2001, let us not forget America’s second 9/11. Never forget 9/11/2012.
when your teacher talks for an extra 30 seconds after class is supposed to end
talk about perspective. shit.
That’s great the CONTINENT of Africa is bigger than a single individual country. That’s super great that you lump 54 separate and individual countries with different histories and people into one giant blend of sameness. That’s super great for you, stupid.
I think someone ^^^ missed the point of this… That map makers purposefully scale down Africa in order to make western civilizations more dominant, stupid
And here we have your average moron that doesn’t know shit of what he’s talking about.
The reason why Africa appears smaller in some maps is not because of a “conspiracy” from Western nations to appear greater, it’s because it’s a Mercator map. They’re used for maritime navigation. Whoa! Some maps have different uses?!
The scale is smaller by the equators while it increases towards the poles.
Look at those evil Greenlanders and Antarctic researches. Look how BIG they project themselves even though Australia (Western) is bigger than Greenland and Antarctica damn sure isn’t as big as all other continents combined.
The Mercator projection map is popular because of how it draws the borders, not because of its size.
Did you know that Earth is a sphere, and it just so happens that projecting the content of a sphere on a flat surface is more complex than it seems? That’s why there are several maps that attempt to project the surface of the Earth, all varying in proportions and scale.
Amazing right? You’re a fucking idiot and so is everyone that reblogged this agreeing with you.
Dyson or Waterman projections or gtfo.
This isn’t freedom. This is fear.
"There is no legitimate purpose for a killing death hell machine like an AK-47"
"Lol your AK-47 couldn’t protect you from the government it’s not deadly enough"
Both statements are true. You don’t need to own a fucking AK-47 unless…
That guy with an AK from Bundy Ranch called.
He said you’re full of shit.
Please to explain to me how one redneck with an AK-47 can fight the US military which has fucking air strikes and drones ready at one phonecall away. You’re legitimately retarded if you think your AK-47 will have a chance of fighting your government m8. Fucking delusional.
Funfact: the US Military can’t effectively fight pre-industrial age peasants in Afghan with barely functioning AK-47s, and it’s taken over a decade to get effectively nowhere.
Considering US civilians have much nicer weapons, and we would be fighting on domestic land, we already have an advantage in that respect. On top of that, unlike the Taliban and Al Qaeda, there are a lot more sympathetic people in our military who probably wouldn’t be willing to fire upon their neighbors and family. Mass defectors would be guaranteed.
Also, wouldn’t airstrikes and drones on your own soil be kind of self-harming to the government’s image? Are you really okay with the government being that heartless to the people it’s supposed to protect? If you are, you’re part of the problem, m8. Hope you like living in the USSA, statist pinko.

Yesterday was my last day working on Capitol Hill as an intern. Personally I loved working up there. It was an amazing experience and I got to meet a lot of interesting people, Charles Krauthammer and Charles Bolden to name a few. Plus, playing softball with my coworkers on the Mall was fun as hell. If you have the opportunity to intern up on the Hill, definitely do it. You’d be surprised as to how much you can learn.
