I wouldn't hold your breath, as you can see, everytime the going gets tough, the slacker gets... whingy...and whiny...and insulting.



Interesting that you are so enamored with me you see it fit to use something I said as your sig line.

Obsessed much?

unlike you simpletons, I have no problem admitting it if I am wrong.

Hey, look, Slack just proved my last statement right. Who'd o' thought it!

I think this guy is really beyond help (and this is where he thinks 'no, you are, you retarded fool! Arrrgghhhhh!!!"', lets just take consolence in that he's not going to get to impliment his Nazi ideas without a serious serious shake up in the world today.


unlike you simpletons, I have no problem admitting it if I am wrong.


No doubt you've had to get used to it by now.

My Sig doesn't show obsession, but rather documents that on one occasion you managed to utter those words.

Thats right just keep avoiding the issue of global overpopulation, thats all you twits have done in this thread.


Ah, here we see the selective memory tactic. Want me to find where I said I recognise it as an issue?


I do not hate many people at all, simply those who have earned that badge.


Africans
Mexicans
The Disabled
The Poor

Can I add Chinese and Muslims onto that too?


Because you didnt say you enjoy romantic moment with livestock doesnt mean you dont right?


Such a witty response! I am struck down by such a devastating attack lol.

And btw, don't knock it till you've tried it... sheep baby, sheep.... RAWR


That is the problem with people like you. You let emotion get a hold of your thoughts and you forget to actually use your brain.


People like me... please define what I am in terms of category. Not worthy of living? Subhuman? Barbarian?

And as for using my brain, I do use my brain, and I use it for good, albeit at the expense of people with dreams and lusts such as those that which you harbour.


Compassion and emotion have no place in many topics, this just happens to be one of them.


So there is no place for compassion in the deaths of millions of people? Wow, sick puppy.... very sick puppy.

Did you pull the wings off flies as a child?


People are little more than statistics.


Including yourself no less. Maybe remember that if/when someone is standing over you with a rifle, and you're begging for life?


The common expression that human life is precious is one of the biggest myths put forth.


Again, including yourself no less. Maybe remember that if/when someone is standing over you with a rifle, and you're begging for life?


Child molester or kitten, who truly deserves to live? PLease spare me your "well both of them do blah blah blah" bull#.


Ok... that was random... Why do you bring paedophilia into a thread in which you express a desire to kill the poor, the disabled, blacks, mexicans, and other 'undesirables'? An individual crime in a thread regarding millions of people?


Unfortunately that type of activity is illegal.


So assume it isn't, for just a moment. Would you do it?


You may want to take your own comments to heart. The emotion you people have let dribble down your chin in this thread is laughable.


If anyone is laughing at our disgust regarding your views, it is you, and you alone. Which means that your above comment means nothing.

And btw, I practise what I preach. I don't shout "yeah let's go kill millions of people!" then drop my balls when someone invites me to get out on the frontline and carry out such heinous thoughts.

Serious question, will you be out on the frontline killing Africans? Or will you be at home watching it unfold on Fox?

Note: If humans are statistics and entirely unimportant, we have no write to make the decisions you're suggesting. Flawed, weak argument. It's been shown to you time and time again. You refuse to accept it.

Furthermore, isn't it strange how three clearly capable articulate intelligent people have shown strong opposition to what you're saying as regards to a solution and your ridiculous idealogies, and many more articulate, intelligent people have shown distaste for it as well. Yet, none have shown favour for yourself. Strange, huh.

You can add the part where I mentioned the fact that I hate any of them, that should be sufficient.

People like you who are afraid of reality, you would rather attack the messenger than deal with the problem. it is akin to me telling you that your house is on fire and you getting mad at me. what is the bigger problem? Me or overpopulation? Obviously its overpopulation.

that is your opinion, do not state it as fact.

Of course, I too am a statistic, as are you, your family, your friends, etc etc. Nothing more, nothing less.



Again, including yourself no less. Maybe remember that if/when someone is standing over you with a rifle, and you're begging for life?
very true again. If someone was standing over me with a rifle, the thought of screaming " WAIT!!!!! human life is precious!!!!!" would be the most ridiculous statement ever made.




Ok... that was random... Why do you bring paedophilia into a thread in which you express a desire to kill the poor, the disabled, blacks, mexicans, and other 'undesirables'? An individual crime in a thread regarding millions of people?
You obviously had an issue with my statement that not everyone deserves to live. I just proved you wrong.




So assume it isn't, for just a moment. Would you do it?
being that it is currently illegal, any discussion of such events on a public forum is not a smart thing to do.


If anyone is laughing at our disgust regarding your views, it is you, and you alone. Which means that your above comment means nothing.
Are you disgusted? You actually let something you read on an internet forum affect you personally? WOW.


And btw, I practise what I preach. I don't shout "yeah let's go kill millions of people!" then drop my balls when someone invites me to get out on the frontline and carry out such heinous thoughts.


Uh huh, ok tough guy, sure ya dont.


Serious question, will you be out on the frontline killing Africans? Or will you be at home watching it unfold on Fox?


Again you assume I meant actively killing, which I have never said. You are not very bright are you?

3 clearly articulate intelligent people also believe gun control & welfare is Constitutional. 3 clearly articulate intelligent people also thought the Iraq war would be over in a few months. 3 clearly articulate and intelligent people also believe socialism is a good idea.

3 clearly articulate and intelligent people also believed going to war against hitler and tojo was a bad idea. Luckily for the planet, no one listened to those 3 intelligent and articulate people huh?

Being articulate and intelligent does not mean you are right, it means you can put forth a differing opinion.

You mistakenly believe I stated it is a problem of not having enough room.

Wrong. I believe nothing of the kind. The post you are referring to was intended merely to illustrate how nonsensical are the 'facts' on which you base the racist claptrap you spout. The illustration stands, misplaced decimal point or no. What was that you said? 'A study I heard about'? Is that the way you formulate your view of reality? A tissue of alleged 'facts' putatively drawn from 'studies' that you have only 'heard about'?


You have failed to bring up the problems with food, infrastructure, disease, water, natural resources associated with an obscenely high population. Those are the insurmountable problems, not physical space.

Let's see if I can make this really simple for you.

The world may be overpopulated. Problems of food, infrastructure, etc., may be caused or exacerbated by overpopulation. But what you fail to see, because of a certain defect in your moral vision, is that wiping out four billion people (or forcibly preventing people from breeding) is not a humane or even a practical way to address these problems. Since you fail to take this fact into account when formulating your arguments, your arguments are propter hoc invalid. There is no need for a decent person to discuss them further and I would not sully myself by doing so.

I merely pointed out, with facts and statistics to support me, that

1. The 'unproductive' third world is actually quite productive, so much so that in recent years it has been growing faster -- much faster -- than America.

2. The 'unproductive' third world, far from being a drain on American resources, receives next to nothing in assistance per capita from the world's richest country.

This means -- forgive me for spelling it out -- that the premise from which you launched your repulsive proposal is fallacious. I trust that is clear enough, even to you.

Now prove me wrong. Not by telling me what a moron I am, but by producing a reasoned, logical rebuttal of the points I have made in this thread, supported by proper documentation. I challenge you to do it. I don't believe you can.

Ok so you ARE an elitist, nationalist bigot.

Enough said, really.


People like you who are afraid of reality,


Ah yes, I must admit you know, reality does petrify me... I just look at it and think "Slackerwire lives there.... *shudder*"


you would rather attack the messenger than deal with the problem. it is akin to me telling you that your house is on fire and you getting mad at me. what is the bigger problem? Me or overpopulation? Obviously its overpopulation.


Arrogant fool. You could be the nicest person on the planet and if you still expressed a sick desire to eliminate millions who do not fit into your cosy little vision of the world, we would still be having this face-off.

As previously stated, I have recognised there is an issue. The messenger is getting shot because he is a bigoted elitist fool with dreams of global genocide.



So there is no place for compassion in the deaths of millions of people? Wow, sick puppy.... very sick puppy.
that is your opinion, do not state it as fact.


1) I asked a question, and did not make a statement.

2) If you refer to the comment about you being a sick puppy, then I can safely say you have proven me correct in this issue, thus making it fact.


WAIT!!!!! human life is precious!!!!!" would be the most ridiculous statement ever made.


It might be. I put it to you though that unless you're off your face, you would nonetheless be begging for your life, not with the comment you stated, but I bet a lot of "Please" would be getting thrown about.


You obviously had an issue with my statement that not everyone deserves to live. I just proved you wrong.


You proved that you cannot stick to your own topic. You state that millions should be culled to save humanity. This is not about crime and punishment. Again, you assume that because I find your views utterly ridiculous, that I am in favour of unconditional life.


being that it is currently illegal, any discussion of such events on a public forum is not a smart thing to do.


Ah, so you're attempting to use legality to duck this question that would expose further still what a closet psycho you really are?


Are you disgusted? You actually let something you read on an internet forum affect you personally? WOW.


You seem stunned. Take a seat before you fall down.

Oh wait, you're a computer chair world leader arent you. You're already sitting...


Uh huh, ok tough guy, sure ya dont.


Actually, you're right, I dont advocate murder en masse


Again you assume I meant actively killing, which I have never said. You are not very bright are you?


And again, you avoid yet another question put forward to you. Maybe it is you who are not very bright, as you lack the answers, and resort instead to insults and childish argument tactics

I think there's a huge difference in the way city folks and country folks view overpopulation. City folk look around and think "Look at all this land to build on!" Country folk look at all the houses being built on the land and think "Now where are they going to grow food?"

No, that was in reference to a study someone put forth on a different forum during a debate about overpopulation in the U. S.


You have failed to bring up the problems with food, infrastructure, disease, water, natural resources associated with an obscenely high population. Those are the insurmountable problems, not physical space.

Let's see if I can make this really simple for you.

There is no maybe about it, overpopulation IS the cause of those problems.


Since you fail to take this fact into account when formulating your arguments, your arguments are propter hoc invalid. There is no need for a decent person to discuss them further and I would not sully myself by doing so.


So does that mean you are leaving for good?




1. The 'unproductive' third world is actually quite productive, so much so that in recent years it has been growing faster -- much faster -- than America.


You may want to research the economics of it again. Earning a high return on a small amount does not mean the same as earning a low return on a very large amount.


2. The 'unproductive' third world, far from being a drain on American resources, receives next to nothing in assistance per capita from the world's richest country.
At what point did I specify aid from American only?


This means -- forgive me for spelling it out -- that the premise from which you launched your repulsive proposal is fallacious. I trust that is clear enough, even to you.
Again you state opinion as fact.

Now prove me wrong. Not by telling me what a moron I am, but by producing a reasoned, logical rebuttal of the points I have made in this thread, supported by proper documentation. I challenge you to do it. I don't believe you can. Just did.

Instead of making ignorant assumptions, why dont you simply prove my bigotry? I have stated numerous times that race and religion mean nothing to me.

Begging for life isnt a proven tactic. Figuring how to fight back or looking for an escape opportunity is. Please do not believe you know how people act in given situations. There is your arrogance once again.




You proved that you cannot stick to your own topic. You state that millions should be culled to save humanity. This is not about crime and punishment. Again, you assume that because I find your views utterly ridiculous, that I am in favour of unconditional life.
Post the exact comment where I said humans must be culled.




Ah, so you're attempting to use legality to duck this question that would expose further still what a closet psycho you really are?
Nope, discussion of a currently illegal act could show intent.




You seem stunned. Take a seat before you fall down.
Maybe you should get out of the house and realize not everyone agrees with you or shares the same opinions you do. Taking offense to something said on the internet indicates you have more urgent problems than anything I may say .




Actually, you're right, I dont advocate murder en masse
Nor do I. I never said anything about wanting people murdered.

Thank you for corroborating my supposition. You do, in fact, formulate your view of reality on the basis of alleged facts drawn from studies you have only heard about.


Earning a high return on a small amount does not mean the same as earning a low return on a very large amount.

And this proves that third world countries are unproductive? How?


At what point did I specify aid from American only?

Ooh, slippery. Every 'point' you have made so far was in reference to 'American'. If other countries want to waste their resources on aid to the third world, what's it to you? Their money isn't coming out of your pocket.

Actually, no I didn't. Assumptions again! I am from you would class as the First World.

Me calling you a bigot comes from observing your comments and attitudes. If you don't like how you are perceived, change how you act.


Who is the arrogant fool here? You came into this thread assuming you are right. If you want to see arrogance, go look in the mirror.


And what is more, is that you started this thread, assuming you were right, thus making you the aggressor, thus making you the biggest fool. Ever heard the saying "If you have nothing nice to say, then keep your mouth shut"?

And why go look at a mirror, when I can just look at yourself?


Instead of making ignorant assumptions, why dont you simply prove my bigotry? I have stated numerous times that race and religion mean nothing to me.


*sigh*

I have no NEED to prove what I say, as it is there for all to see for themselves! Not only have I picked up on it, but so have countless others!

Why waste the time highlighting this in detail when anyone who has been watching this thread can see what a fascist you are?


Begging for life isnt a proven tactic. Figuring how to fight back or looking for an escape opportunity is. Please do not believe you know how people act in given situations. There is your arrogance once again.


Ah yes, but I assume being the great military hero that you are, you have killed many who have been at your feet as you hold a rifle on them, haven't you?

Maybe this explains your attitudes to life.


Post the exact comment where I said humans must be culled.


You imply that culling deer is something that should be considered for humans. I refer people to page one.


Nope, discussion of a currently illegal act could show intent.


And again, you chose to evade the topic. Just come on out and say that you would kill you're disabled child if you could, get the weight off your chest.


Maybe you should get out of the house and realize not everyone agrees with you or shares the same opinions you do.


Very cute coming from you Adolf, considering you have spent many posts on hurling insults at those who dare to disagree with your sick ideas. Maybe it is YOU who should leave the house hmm? Perhaps leave your state? Mingle with people outside of your class?


Taking offense to something said on the internet indicates you have more urgent problems than anything I may say


So, if I was to say for example, "Let's wipe the United States off the map with a full nuclear spread from Russia and China and the EU, because they are just a waste of carbon," and you took offense, would that make you an idiot?


Nor do I. I never said anything about wanting people murdered.


You may have, you may not have, I am past giving a toss. Point is you implied it countless times. Ever heard of reading between the lines?
