    When they come into the US, be prepared to see this everyday on the mean streets of Kentucky and be prepared to be attacked like this on a number of occasions. When they come into the US, be prepared to see this everyday on the mean streets of Kentucky and be prepared to be attacked like this on a number of occasions"Have you even SEEN Kentucky?

  • Twilight Is A Terrible Book/Movie Series

    Examples of the latter: Taxi Driver, Mean Streets , Waking Life, etc. Just because it was adapted in five major motion pictures doesn't mean that it's amazing, it just goes to show that a lot of people like it for its shallow lovey-dovey background and that it has been a financial success. My opponent argues: "Just because it was adapted in five major motion pictures doesn't mean that it's amazing, it just goes to show that a lot of people like it" First, I didn't argue that it was amazing.

Opinions

  • Is the NRA racist?

    I have no doubt there are racist members in the NRA and even on the board of directors but that doesn't mean the organization is racist. After Malcolm X promised to fight for civil rights "by any means necessary" while posing for Ebony magazine with an M1 Carbine rifle in his hand and the Black Panthers took to streets of Oakland with loaded guns, conservatives like Ronald Reagan, then governor of California, began promoting gun control. Just because you might be able to find an NRA member who is racist doesn't mean the NRA is racist.

  • Should private citizens be allowed to legally own guns?

    Freedom does NOT mean having the right to own firearms Owning a gun does not mean you are free! Well look at those countries that have strict gun control, they're strong!" YEAH they got invaded by Germany in the second World War, really strong. I mean look at MEXICO!
